Reading Theme – May 2016.

It wasn’t that difficult to decide on a theme for this month. There was always the option of celebrating May the Fourth be with you. Another easy out would be Captain America: Civil War as it comes out in a few days…May 5th for early viewings, May 6th wide in the US (Canada, I think, too.). There’s always another spring pun in the works, but three in a row(Spring into Summer)? Umm…no. So many themes, I was about to resort to making a theme rule for my themes, which is how this TBR project got started.

But then it dawned on me…”Maestro!”

(the 80s-ness of this video…LOL)

MayDay! I need a hero.

Han Solo…

Captain America…

or even Agent Carter.

(Yes, the forever-ship rears its head again.)

This month, I will be tackling stories with a hero–fiction and non, graphic novels and normal ones.

There are so many reading options on my TBR list for May:

Waiting for Clark by Annabeth Albert ~ LGBT rom/com with comic con and superhero cosplays

Fallout (Lois Lane) by Gwenda Bond ~ The life and times of Lois Lane before the Super Man.
(I actually started a few days ago when last month’s TBR list was completed…and I think I’m falling back into my old forever ship with this one.)

Agent Carter: Season One Declassified by Sarah Rodriguez ~ A beautiful book covering one of the best heroes (heroines) in the Marvel Universe, IMO.

Rocket Racoon Vol.2 ~ just because I adore Rocket and Groot.

I Am Princess X by Cherie Priest ~ a mix between a graphic novel and a classic novel all in purple ink.

Zodiac Legacy – Convergence by Stan Lee/Stuart Moore/Andie Tong ~ What I am hoping is like a YA X-Men meets Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. story

And hopefully I’ll get my hands on:

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War: The Art of the Movie

Will I find my hero?

I’m definitely going to try…

What’s on your reading list for May [2016]?

Sick as a Dog, reporting for duty. #AmPlotting, #AmListening

Having the flu and severe allergies at the same time is never fun. Can’t sleep. Can’t breathe. Can’t really run around and do things, yet I have to really run around and do things. I may be down, but I am not out.

Thankfully, my mind is still running at more than full speed. Although the things I think…

If you’ve been to the theatre lately, you may have seen this little animated film with Rock, Paper, & Scissors teaching how wrong it is to bully and judge others. It’s so cute! And it got me to thinking about Sheldon Cooper’s Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock…(and if you need that explanation, I am including the video…)

When I woke up at one in the morning, for some reason, I thought about another variation that even Sheldon would play.

The Avengers version of Rock, Paper, Scissors: Hammer, Fist, Palms, Arrow, Shield. Okay, I figure that Thor’s Hammer could knock Hulk’s fist away. Hulk’s fist could easily take the brunt of Iron Man’s energy pulse shot from his palms. Iron Man’s palms could shoot a pulse to knock out any of Hawkeye’s arrows. And Cap’s Shield would just beat all. Because, you know, #TeamCap. (Sorry, I haven’t thought of a great one for Black Widow…or Ultron…or Scarlet Witch yet. It’s probably sad enough, that we don’t play shotgun around these parts when claiming the front passenger seat…We play CHEWIE. Because if your riding in Mille–so named for the Falcon–only Chewbacca can sit there.)

This is the sort of things I think about when I’m ill.

Which can be great. Like at three this morning when I finally realized what other twists I could add to the new story I’m plotting out. But, do I thank my ill mind for making a breakthrough or do I credit the new musical score I’ve been listening to. (Motion Picture Scores = Story/Character/Location Creation for me.)

The Batman (bleh) vs. Superman score by both Hans Zimmer (Inception, Batman, Man of Steel scores) and Junkie XL (Divergent score) has been PERFECT for this story that still has a teetering title. The drama, the action, the moments.

It’s all unlocking. It’s almost genius how three unrelated stories are combining into one awesome megalith of a tale…that I still don’t know if it will be one [probably] long story or broken up into multiple stories. There’s still a lot of plotting going on, but it’s getting faster and faster as it comes together in my head and in my journal.

              the current story journal.

I’m excited about this story! So as the sick days drag on, I hope to finish typing out “Hey, 6B.” I have a few CP chapters to tackle. And I hope to have compiled enough ideas to do a rough plot of chapters…though I know I may never adhere to the initial plan. Oh, and type out another review for the Lunar Chronicles series.

Hope you all are well and avoiding this Flu bug…
