  • So my twitter account seems to have been hacked, since I was suddenly following 1000 or so accounts.I painstakingly unfollowed, only to watch random people get followed before my eyes, without me doing anything. IDK how or why such a pointless hack exists, but whatever. My twitter account is now deactivated. I never used it anyway.
  • Love this: Sam Storyteller's Rewriting Firefly
  • Shutdown LK Hamilton - She's trolling us isn't she? It's like that Joaquin Phoenix/Casey Afleck stunt. It's going to turn out to be an elaborate performance piece. Deliberately destroying her writing. Picking up the pieces that are the most awful, rewriting them in particular. Cutting out anything good, writing more of the worst. She's actually honed it. It was a process. There was dross in amongst the good, then more dross and the good dropped to mediocre. And then it was awful amongst the bad and now it's ALL AWFUL. I think. I think I'm in awe. I think she might just be the Antichrist. Wow.
  • Undoing Maleficent - So wait, giving depth and complexity to female characters is 'undoing' them? You'd rather have them remain beautiful cyphers? Their two dimensionality lending them... what? Better fap value? Because messy real people with ups and downs and good and bad don't fantasise so well? Ok, that's inflammatory of me, STILL THOUGH. I call bullshit. (Also, what trend? Wicked and this? Two movies? Srsly?) It's all well and good to call for 'new characters' but if the execs are going to greenlight new characs it's gonna be 'white male antiheroes' a la every single show on tv right now. Not 'complex female villains without an existing fanbase'. If we want interesting female characs on our screens, then we have to look for already famous ones, no one will take the risk on new ones because the entire industry is loaded against us. So, you know. Fuck off Mr internet writer guy.
  • So I have Good Wife thoughts, looking back at the characters and how they've grown and looking at the different friendships, and looking at what chances they've missed along the way and which they've leapt on, and putting things in perspective and so on and so forth. but right now whenever I think about the show, it's either CAPSLOCK SCREAMING. or it's me curled up in the foetal position crying. SO. MAYBE LATER. WHEN I HAVE PUT MY HEART BACK TOGETHER.

Which I am pretty much across the board as I changed my tumblr ([tumblr.com profile] nemonclature ), added an AO3 pseud and my twitter was already [twitter.com profile] nemonclature . It's just LJ that I left because I never use it any more.

Midnight Judges by lettered. Okay so as the AN says, at times it's transparently fix it, But towards the end, when everything comes together and people start doing some seriously badass POLITICS and TALKING also there is a LAWYER... FFF I can't tell you how much I love save the world through TALKING plots. Plus it made me start to like Kirk again.

This is exactly what the doctor ordered. (I just wish there was more Sulu)

 OH MY GOD, GUYS. OHMYGOD.

Not at all the silly actioner I was expecting from the trailer and the synopsis. This shit is fucking epic. Even A liked it, and he's like, the queen of Judgey McJudgeyness. Especially for time-travel.

I will never doubt Rian Johnson again. This man is the shit. He's the new Terry Gilliam. Go forth and worship.

Rewatching SGU with [livejournal.com profile] theoret. We're up to episode 8 or 9? S1

OH SHOW. ILU.

I also read cleanwhiteroom's mathematique. WIP, so you may want to avoid, except for how cwr is a fucking AMAYZING writer (who also wrote Force over Distance which I recced at [community profile] nemo_recs, well worth a look), so don't avoid, just go and court WIP heartache. You won't regret it.

It's an AU where Young meets Rush when he's doing his crazy Gloria's-just-dead, maths-chevrons-gate, Icarus-project-not-yet-a-reality thing. Also the Lucian Alliance are trying to kidnap Rush and this may or may not be just for his brain.

THERE IS DRAMA. IT IS EPIC. And lots and lots of other Stargate series cameos if that's your thing. Vala is pretty cool.

There's something awesome about those Gary Stu wish-fulfilment HP fics. )



Remember all that HP fic MSTing that used to go on? Remember pottersues? Remember when epic_rants had claws and wasn't just another reccing site? Remember weeping cock? (Wishing you didn't remember it now?) How about badfic_quotes? Or the mother of all fuck-ups, fandom_wank?

Looking over them, a lot seem to still be updating. I guess it's just my fault for drifting away from the dark and seedy underbelly of fanfic. WHAT WAS I THINKING?

((Posting about those two things together may or may not be related.))

I finally saw The Avengers! Woop woop!

Mostly I loved it. Silly Bang Bang, all the feels etc. I don't know that I have anything to say that hasn't already been said, but here goes:


Likes, Dislikes and Fics I want. Full o' spoilers. )



I saw The Hunger Games just before I left Barcelona, and I'd meant to get this post up earlier but whatever. THE LINKAGE? GALE BETTER PLAY BALDR IN THOR 2. THEN LOKI WILL KILL HIM AND SHIT WILL GO DOWN.

Spoiler review, a couple of fic recs and some interview links. )

After reading Blood Magic, I got a bit obsessed with long fics, and old school HP, specifically Harry/Voldemort. Thing is most, if not all Harry/Voldemort is absolutely fucking awful. I managed to find a couple of readable fics, pushed myself into reading the beginnings of a whole bunch of frankly unreadable fics (beginnings only, because I gave up after a chapter or so) and now EVERYTHING I READ IS AWFUL. IT BROKE ME GUIZ. I CAN'T READ FANFIC ANY MORE. MY EYESSSS. THEY BUUUURN.

This must be what hell feels like. Bad fic. Everywhere.

OH MY GOD. This is utterly wonderful. The song choice is PERFECT, the use of speaky face is INSPIRED and as a summary of season two it works SO WELL. Seriously, this is the BEST THING EVER. It's all so on the beat and slick and funny yet creepy at the same time and OHMYGOD. I'M DYING. 

Anyone who has ever seen even the tiniest bit of Sherlock has to watch this RIGHT FUCKING NOW.

Why blood appears blue in your veins. - Which would also answer a question which has been puzzling me for the past couple of days. (WHAT? I THINK ABOUT THESE THINGS AND DON'T HAVE A SMARTPHONE OKAY? I CAN'T CHECK INSTANTLY AND THEN I FORGET UNTIL INCONVENIENT).

Why do our lips look blue when we're cold? )

What if the Avengers was an old timey silent film? (Answer = epic win.)

Paradise Parking. Photos of nature reclaiming vintage cars. GUIZ. THIS IS GORGE. And reminds me muchly of the Paperbag Prince. (Which is also gorge, in case you were wondering.) )

Gorillaz - Do Ya Thang - I do not even understand half of what's going on here, but I think I want to live in that flat. At least for a weekend.

[community profile] month_of_meta - Best. Birthday Present. EVER. I absolutely have to contribute to this. META! ALL MONTH! BEST THING!

Pioneer One (via the rec by [personal profile] ein_myria) Unfortunate lack of anyone brown, but surprisingly good for a webseries. Or maybe my definition of web series is just out of date? Is there more good stuff out there? I've tried watching things on and off and mostly been disappointed, but if anyone has recs I'd certainly be interested in checking them out. (ETA: This based on watching ep one, if brown people turn up, or it takes a dive in terms of quality, I shall rejoice/lament accordingly.)

'Last week on Justified' - I forgot to mention last time, but that bit where Boyd knocked Tanner down and then told him - "Now you tell your boss, if he has anything to say in replaaaaaa-aaaaaah..."

FFFFFFFFFFFF ACCENTS. OH GOD I LOVE ACCENTS. THEY'RE LIKE ORGASMS FOR YOUR EARS.

Justified ep 1x06 )



So can I have a moment to say... IT'S BACK OH THANK FUCK IT'S BACK OMG I MISSED IT SO MUCH IT'S BACK I CAN'T EVEN WORDS FAIL. BEST THING EVER.

Ahem.

TGW ep 3x15 )



FFFF. ELENA. I wish I looked that good in the mornings. She should have eyes gummed shut with sleep, hair all over the fucking place, and red lines from where her sheet has marked her cheek. YOU ARE NOT REAL. IS THIS SOME DOPPLEGANGER POWER?

TVD ep 3x15 )



OH THE DRAMA. I'm so glad I got into this show. Honestly, it's overdramatic WIN.
