Lists Make an Entry

Life continues to be depressing. I continue to read comic books, which are ALSO depressing. I also forgot how much I hated following things that came out monthly.

Well, whatever. In an effort to be upbeat:

Things I Am Excited About
+ Ants of Heaven! I am DYING waiting for this to be translated, I need all the Tenpou & Kenren right now.
+ Wild Adapter is returning soon!
+ YOUNG AVENGERS IN JANUARY! To Do: Catch up on/finish Journey into Mystery, read Vengeance, probably just read Noh-Varr's wikipedia page.

Not being upbeat:
Things I Am Sad About:
- I hate reading scans a lot. I really should find a comic viewer with a better magnify option - Comix is great on my netbook, but I would much rather read on my Windows desktop with a screen that is 13" larger.
- Comics take way too long to read. I could read an entire volume of manga in 30 minutes, but comics have like, walls of text in every tiny bubble. It's harder to read, too.
- Pretty sure I will never forgive my sister for getting me into DC. My only consolation is that she also suffers.

I am also now trying this thing where I interact with people and leave comments sometimes? It's kind of terrifying but I'll keep at it!

And finally, I wrote a crack ficlet after seeing like 5 posts in the Young Avengers tag going "omg Teddy cheated on Billy?!" so I am posting it here for archival purposes.

Teddy silently closed the door behind him, careful not to wake up his sleeping boyfr- Billy, who was standing right in front of him, glaring intensely.

“Teddy,” he said, and the word promised certain doom, “what is this?” He held up a large piece of spandex, obviously a piece of a costume.

Oh, shit. “Um,” he tried, “Tommy must have left it here?”

“Theodore Altman,” Billy’s voice was rising with every word, “*are you lying to me*?”

Teddy winced. “Look, I can explain-“

Billy was practically shrieking. “*Have you been seeing another superhero team*?”

“Billy-“

“Who were they? Was it Avengers Academy? The Runaways? The X-Men? Was it *Northstar*?”

“Billy, I’m not even a mutant-“

“Someone in town? The Avengers? The *New* Avengers? X-Factor Investigations?” His eyes went wide. “Oh my god, have you been seeing *Shatterstar*?” His eyes started to fill with tears. “How *could* you?”

“Billy! It’s not like that-“

Billy turned away from him, sobbing, and ran from the room. “I HATE YOU, TEDDY. HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?” The door slammed behind him, and then a few seconds later, opened and slammed again, more loudly.

Teddy put his face in his palm.
