Joseon Gunman, episodes 17 & 18

Sailor Moon Crystal, episode 06 “Tuxedo Mask”

I may cry a lot, and I may be clumsy and weak, but I want to help if I can!

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)

Logic is the beginning of wisdom, Valeris, not the end.

Finished reading: Lockwood & Co: The Whispering Skull, by Jonathan Stroud
I’m getting better at understanding my Talent; I think it may be getting stronger.  And I’ve definitely never had as strong a connection with any other spirit as I have with this skull.  So, for better or for worse, even though it’s a nasty, conniving, deceitful thing that mixes truth and lies in everything it says, I think we have to keep it here.  For the moment.  Maybe it’ll be properly useful to us all one day.

Finished reading: Mere Christianity, by C. S. Lewis
Didn’t quite resonate with me like some of his other works, but damn the man had a gift for metaphors and allegorical imagery.

Joseon Gunman, episodes 15 & 16

There’s no need to apologize for killing my father.  After all, he killed your father first, did he not?  Of course, that means it’s my turn now.  You of all people should understand what I’m going to do now.
