Trying a new thing for the new year! Every Tuesday, I’m going to post a list of three things. I don’t know what sort of things they’ll be–or if they’ll even be a list every week–but there will be three whatevers.

Heroes of the Storm

Stefan talked me into playing this and it’s ridiculously fun, even against the AI with an all-AI team. You can get silly skins for the characters (Sugarplum Sylvanas!) and I love the mashup between Blizz’s different properties. And it’s easy to pop in and play a game to blow off some steam and then go back to doing something else.

C.J. Cherryh’s Foreigner series

I love these books. So much to love about these books–but mainly, at this point, I’m reading for the characters. Especially Bren and Jago and Cajeiri and Ilisidi. I have discovered an abiding affection for books where people sit around and drink tea and talk elliptically about world events and then explosions happen. It’s grand. Love being able to sink into these books and I only have one more to go and then I have to wait a year for a new one like everyone else and that makes me sad.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Ohmigosh you guys, a Star Wars movie that doesn’t suck! And one that has a female protagonist (:heart_eyes: at Rey forever) and goodness gracious what a wonderful thing that is! Sure, there are things to quibble over and argue about but The Force Awakens does right by the franchise and I hate saying that I am relieved because what a terrible thing to say but it’s true: I am relieved. And oh, I am excited to see what happens next.

Also, it has given the world this gif:
