Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Feb 27-March 5)


How was your week, folks? I hope it was a good one. I am all nervous, prepping my monologues for my acting class on Wednesday. It’s great to have something to look forward to! Here are the trailers for this week:


Deadpool 2

Do I really need to say anything?

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2


Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tale

Is it weird that I am glad this franchise is hopefully ending soon?

Kong: Skull Island

Maybe this will make me like Hiddleston more again?

Sand Castle

There’s some kind of war movie every week now, isn’t there?

War Machine

Interesting cast? I really don’t have much of an opinion on these things …


They had me at “an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been co-existing since the beginning of time”!


Netflix does not shy away from doing odd things.

Alien: Covenant

Not for me, as you should know, but it’s a big movie, so here you go.

The Promise

I like Oscar Isaac.


I put this on the list because it’s German and on Netflix and I always see that as a big win. But in terms of tone, this is mostly what gets produced in Germany and Austria. Do you see what I have to work with here? I barely ever get anything upbeat …

TV Shows

13 Reasons Why

I am not a fan of the book, but this honestly looks … good?


This looks weird, but Alison Brie – count me in!

Famous in Love

I wish the cast was different … I bet The Arrangement is better.


This is disturbing AF to me.

What are you watching? What’s on your mind?

Beautiful People Link-Up: March Edition


Beautiful People is a link-up created by Cait @ Paperfury and Sky @ Further Up and Further. Through a different questionnaire each month, it helps you get to know your characters and therefore your story better. I tried it a couple times (check out the Valentine’s Edition here) and feel like it helps me keep my motivation up and gives me a great platform to talk about my WIP Arcadia on a sort of regular basis. (You can check out the first couple of chapters of it on wattpad here!)

I am going to answer this month’s questions on behalf of Kasia as I am mostly (but not exclusively) writing from her perspective.


1. What’s their favourite book/movie/play/etc.?


From left to right: The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom (book), The Goonies (movie), Dollhouse (TV show), The Lumineers (band)

2. Is there anything they regret doing?

Kasia tends to be the person who regrets not doing things, rather than doing them. When she was younger, it was mostly other people who had to push her to do things she would have usually missed out on. Most of the time, even if she didn’t end up liking the experience, she was grateful for having tried it anyway. When she got older, she did the pushing herself, but couldn’t always muster up to go to a party all by herself or to approach and talk to people she didn’t know. The times she wishes she had been braver are probably the ones she regrets.

3. If they were sick or wounded, who would take care of them and how?

Dyson knows his girl in and out, so he’d be the one to take care of her for sure. He’d bring all the blankets, gallons of tea and have Netflix ready at her command. But Dyson also knows that she prefers nursing her wounds on her own and would leave her be until she comes to him. Then, he would allow her to cuddle up to him and despite her worries, would assure her a thousand times that no, she would not infect him and get him sick as well.

4. Is there an object they can’t bear to part with and why?

Currently I’d say a certain bracelet, but you’ll have to read the story to find out why.

5. What are 5 ways to win their heart (or friendship)?

  • Showing kindness to others or just common decency, because she hates rude people.
  • Don’t put her in the spotlight and then force her to a make a decision in front of a crowd. She’s most likely only going to freeze up and hold a grudge.
  • Don’t question her when she tells you she doesn’t drink coffee. Tea is a valid alternative.
  • Don’t be late or forget that you were about to meet altogether.
  • It would be nice if every once in a while you could be the one to make contact first, just so she doesn’t feel like she has to do all the work to keep the friendship going.

6. Describe a typical outfit for them from top to bottom.

Kasia is most likely going to wear loose fitting shirts and/or oversize sweaters and vests, tight-fitting jeans (but probably not with holes in them) and sneakers. Comfort is key! Every now and then she likes to mix is up with a leather jacket. She’s not much one for accessorizing, especially necklaces get on her nerves.


7. What’s their favorite type of weather?

SUMMER RAIN! There’s nothing wrong with sunshine, but too much heat can easily become unbearable. Also, she adores petrichor.

8. What’s the worst fight they’ve ever been in?

Kasia is very bad in fights, because she runs out of arguments very quickly even when she is in the right. She had quite some explosive arguments with her parents, even though most of the neighbors would describe her as an angel. But everyone reaches a point where they have to see their parents for who they are and Kasia found herself not liking some of her parents world views. She never really violated curfew or did something dangerous, but they did have a lot of disagreements nonetheless (which she found unfair).

9. What names or nicknames have they been called throughout their life?

Mostly people just go for Kas.

10. What makes their heart feel alive?

Kasia has a thing for the sky. She can really appreciate it when it’s beautiful or unusually colored or just full of stars. She likes to take a second and just stare at it. Also, there is nothing that touches her more than being happy about something and being able to share that joy with someone.

So, what do you think about the March Edition? Do you feel like you know more about Kasia now? Have you read Arcadia?
