I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it!
I read a great deal. Typically it's fantasy, but I also venture into science fiction, historical fiction, detective series, drama, biographies, alternate histories, psychology, sociology, classic literature, plays... it depends on my mood and where I am on the master list of books I plan to read sometime in the future.
I stay up to date with a number of shows (thank you, Internet), including "Doctor Who", "Once Upon a Time", "Sherlock", and thankfully nothing else. In the downtime between the airing of new episodes, I watch old stuff. Currently, I'm trying to finish "Merlin", "Cyborg 009", "Fullmetal Panic", and too many other things when I find the time. Apparently I like sci-fi television and anime, fantasy manga, random books, and dark American comics.
Right now I'm tossing around some ideas for old story rewrites, like "The Little Mermaid" and some shows and stuff. If anyone ever wants to write it: what would Sailor Moon be like if it was set in the current day, and not in the 90s? Sure, they're making a new adaptation for next Winter, but it's supposed to be a close adaptation to the original manga... which was also written in the 90s, featuring the 90s. Only Ami, Luna, Minako, and Setsuna (and villains) used computers (Usagi is actually awed by the ability of others to use them). The senshi had "communicators" because cellphones hadn't been made popular and miniaturized yet, and Ami has a pocket computer which is SO amazing... and yet I have to wonder how it would hold up against a smartphone or a small laptop (which she actually does sort of have, although it's clunky and ridiculous in comparison to even a cheap laptop you could buy today). If you look at Japan, you'd be hard-pressed to find ANY average teen without a cellphone and/or some sort of small computer. How would the arcade hold up in today's world (perhaps an electronics store, like Best Buy or something, where people still go in to test new games, or as another restaurant or something)? Would a "nerd" like Umino still be at the bottom of the social pecking order? Would the girls make frequent trips to jewelry stores or to somewhere else? It's kind of creepy how Americanized some of this stuff feels... I'd love to try writing this, but I start thinking about it and it quite literally blows my mind. Takeuchi jumped around the subject of technology in her story. It would be interesting to deal with it.
