I finished reading the Ancillary books and just loved them. They are so thoughtful and interesting, and Breq is such an appealing character, partly because she is angry all the time. She is allowed to be angry. She is competent and effective. She's a wonder.

Yesterday I watched Crimson Peak, which I mostly liked, but the ending was quite violent. The cinematography was beautiful, with strange bright colors, like the heroine's yellow dress.

I've been catching up on Elementary Season 4. I loved the episode about a local superhero, "You've Got me, Who's Got You?" I love how Sherlock takes care of Clyde the turtle (tortoise? don't know). I catch myself thinking about Joan's outfits at odd times. Just when I think, oh, that dress is my favorite, she'll wear another one that is even better. She is my favorite in all ways: a badass brilliant mature woman who can handle anything and uses fashion like a weapon.

I really liked the very deliberate and carefully chosen use of colours/fabrics/textures in Crimson Peak.

Joan is excellent. I have developed a number of fashion-associations with her (mainly from her S1 style): silk sheath dresses with large floral prints, short micropleated skirts, and high-heeled ankle boots. Any time I see them in a shop I think "Joan Watson".

And the Ancillary books are also excellent! I hope to re-read them at some point.

Aaaah, Imperial Radch books! Breq is pretty great. (I also like Tisarwat a lot, though not in a role-model-y sense of course.)
