Behind The Scenes is a monthly feature that celebrates our blog anniversary and personal anniversary every 5th of the month. You get to know what we have been up to, along with our video games, movies and comic book haul.
With Fenrile planning to move to the UK in the end of July, June hasn’t felt as long as other months. Whether UK is a good destination at the moment or not (*cough* Brexit) is a debate for another day. Now not only Fenrile has the keys to Nya‘s heart, he also has the keys to her house – and an awesome key-ring to match.
Meanwhile, Nya has started printing some of our favorite photos, so when Fenrile came back to visit, we both had lots of fun filling in the missing bits of our crafty master piece. Yes, we would like to believe that our scrap-booking skills are getting better and better. But the most important of it all is the meaning. Each piece of paper, fabric, tag, sticker, ticket, has a meaning. This is our story.
After having missed the first issue of DC Rebirth, we had to wait for the second printing. We were anxious and not happy about it, so we have decided to pre-order all issues of the Rebirth series we were interested in. These are: Batman, Green Arrow, Aquaman, Detective Comics, Green Lanterns, The Flash, Titans, and Wonder Woman. No, we didn’t forget to mention Superman. We weren’t overly excited with the Superman’s direction in Rebirth, and in fact, Nya hasn’t been overly excited with Wonder Woman’s rebirth plot either. On the other hand, Green Arrow and The Flash are making up for it.
With so many comics and binders, Nya has seen this custom Wonder Woman themed box on Etsy and decided to give it a try. Has been useful so far, at least we can keep all of our last purchases and any other comics that don’t fit in our collections there.
With so many comics to read, no wonder we are taking so long to finish our readalong – first volume of Dark Tower by Stephen King, in case you are wondering. But only two parts left, so we’d like to believe we are getting somewhere. Nya will say it was all Fenrile’s fault, but he’s still learning his ways into the world of real books.
Let’s talk about TV and movies
We are trying very hard to catch up on the TV shows mentioned in our last Behind The Scenes, but it is not easy when our time together is limited. Sadly. We did have a chance to catch up on some Game of Thrones – half of it so far. So don’t spoil us in the comments please!
Let’s talk about video games
So how many games did we get during June? I will give you a hint: Many. It’s Steam Summer Sale’s fault – or so it’s our excuse. The best part is that we got to play some free ones as well. We have been particularly addicted to Brawlhalla, so expect a review soon. And, of course, we still play Smite once in a while.
Fenrile started moving some of his stuff, and to Nya’s delight, this included his PS4. We have tried two new games (Plants vs Zombies and Trials Fusion) , just for the fun of it (I mean, Trials Fusion had unicorns, how can you NOT love unicorns).
Let’s talk about Geek Gear and Toys
Fenrile has been behaving extremely well lately and decided to add only 3 tees to his huge pile of Qwertee tees. He did get Nya some super cute Wonder Woman’s slippers though! She is very thankful for that. But because geeking out is never enough, Nya has also decided to buy a Wonder Woman geeky mysterious box. On the other hand, last month was the last delivery of Super Loot geeky box (balance, it’s all about balance, Silvers).
We can’t wait to hear how much all of you have been geeking out during June. Please do tell us in the comments.
