I'm home for another two days, it's great to see everyone, and I'm loving being cut off from anything work related and unable to do anything but chill. It's good being in the family rythym and getting early nights, my body's thanking me, the persistent headache from the past week has all gone. The weather is cold and grey and blustery, but I'm enjoying it since I can leave it all behind. I've restocked on earl grey and cocoa (cannot find any cocoa in Barcelona, it's weird). Have also filled my suitcase with clothes, gonna have a heck of a time transporting all my stuff to the new place. I have decided I am going to be a shinier and more fashionable person from now on, no more ratty old boring clothes, I will be SMART, CHIC and ELEGANT. Or at the very least I will wear less grey. I even have make up, of both the made and up variety. This is a milestone for me, I am being initiated into the mystic feminine arts of putting paint on one's face.

A bought us all presents, which was adorable of him since we don't actually celebrate Christmas. Admittedly they were all presents that he'd like to get - films and music, but it's the thought that counts. My present to myself was a netbook, with stellar timing since my laptop gave up the ghost on the first day back. I'm still getting used to the tiny thing, it is SHINY and TINY and other -iny words.

That's about it for the RL catch up, have a whole fuckton of saved up snippets. I'm blaming tumblr for the brevity, it's paring down my attention span. Any more of this and I'll end up on Twitter. THE STUPIDEST SOCIAL PLATFORM EVER TO STUPID.

GUYS. Rachel Shelley is in Lagaan. I always thought it was two different people, but I watched one of the dances on youtube yesterday and was up half the night trying to merge Helena Peabody's face with Elizabeth's. AND DESPITE MY FAILURE TO DO SO, THEY ARE ACTUALLY THE SAME PERSON.

I realise this is groundbreaking for a grand total of zero people other than myself. But WHAT THE EVER. DRAMAZ.

New tag -- 'review: themed' )

I've never really had much of a reaction to the overtly sexual kinks, some I prefer, some I don't but I can take 'em or leave 'em. It's the DYNAMICS of a pairing that really gets me. Shippy stuff, obvs. And IDK if I prefer slash, or if I just gravitiate towards it 'cos it's THERE.

powerless!kink, which I've tried to define before, but my latest definition is something like this:

An in control, morally ambiguous character manipulates or controls an obvious good guy/hero character. The good character suspects the in control character's motivations (and is, ideally, afraid of the in control character, at least at first.)

a) The reader, however, is, or eventually comes to be aware that the morally ambiguous character is also good, though possibly held to a less, 'shining' standard of good.

or

b) The reader is, or eventually comes to be aware that the morally ambiguous character cares for the good guy, though for a given value of 'care'.

I mention b) for the same reason I did last time - Leonidas Lion's Suite!verse HITS MY KINK SO HARD, and all Evil!Sam wants to do is BREAK DEAN INTO A TINY BROKEN THING so he can remake him exactly as he wants (UNF).

Anyway, this feeds into the dubcon!kink, which is I guess more straightforward. Character says no, his/her body says yes. Intoxicated/drugged!kink can fit into this, because the conscious "no" is taken away and all that's left are the secret desires.

Or in general, capacity for consent/control is taken away and responsibility placed in the other character's hands. TRANSFERENCE OF POWER. Usually involuntary, though intoxication blurs the line a bit. But NOT unwanted transference, not entirely, kinda. I mean Dean doesn't want to be Sam's sex slave (EXCEPT HE KINDA DOES). Thor doesn't want to be Loki's sex slave in Chaos War. (EXCEPT HE AGREED TO IT - also he kinda does).

For that reason, non-con totally doesn't hit any of my kinks. That's involuntary + unwanted transference of power, there's not tricky consent angst, there's just pain.

And the other kink I've been trying to expose into some comprehensible format, ties into these again - witheld!knowledge!kink - where knowledge is witheld from the POV character (yes, and knowledge = power and I see the similarities). Examples include: concealed identity fic/ bad guy is secretly a good guy fic/slave fic where the character doesn't know what his/her owner is like (and expects the worse). I especially like reveal! moments - Merlin's magic, Batman's idenitity, that sort of thing.


NOW REC ME. I COMMAND YOU.

... that took absolutely forever to perfect. MY GOD.

Anyway, have an absurdly long save up of posts from the past few days...

I don't drink coffee at home. )

Database of songs - Useful from a vidding perspective, but also when writing and wanting mood music.

K's telling knock knock jokes downstairs...

"Knock, knock."
"Who's there?"
"Interrupting Cow."
"Interrupti-"
"MOO!"

Does anyone have AIM? I use it now and then and it'd be nice to be able to chat to flist as well as RP peeps.

Please, someone tell me Amadeo/Zen has been written. IT HAS TO BE. OMG. I would also actually kill for an Amadeo/Mycroft crossover, but I'm guessing that's just me.

I have this overwhelming urge to vid Stefan to Ivor Cutler's Tomato Brain.



IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE. HE STANDS UP AND FALLS DOWN. HIS BRAIN'S A TOMATO.

I've got about twenty billion Seal Prince plot bunnies. SRSLY HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? )

Zen -- My thought process behind watching this went something like: RUFUS SEWELL! RUFUS SEWELL! RUFUS SEWELL! YEAH YEAH YEAH! So I was totally biased.

Basically, it's silly and a bit crap.  )

I saw the Eagle. It is quite possibly the silliest film I've seen all year... AND I WATCH NICOLAS CAGE MOVIES.

Picspam and spoilers below the cut. )

eps 15 - end. [spoilers of course]

I don't really review shows so much as capslock random words. Like, if you're watching the show, it make sense, but I really doubt it means anything if you haven't seen the show. APOLOGIES every 99% of you who haven't watched. What can I say, you're missing out on some epic crack, right here.

Adios show, you were epic crazy )

[livejournal.com profile] gwyn_r  has kindly given me a list of WF filmography recs, which I am slowly working my way through. He has a thing for playing members of law enforcement doesn't he?

Go -- Surprisingly watchable, reminded me of After Hours. Very cracked out and meandering, lots of absurdity. WF's scenes were probably the hardest to watch. Not because he was bad or anything, just... I now understand about the cringe factor. The nude scene? STOP. JUST STOP. OH MY GOD.

My jaw does ache from laughing though.

So I managed to get totally grabbed by Sheppard/Mitchell.

I know, I know, I couldn't go for one of the popular pairings, could I? (Not that it seems to be too small a pairing, not sure if there's such a thing in this fandom. It seems to be a little bit massive.) I am surprised at myself though. Not a hint of antagonism anywhere, look at me ship the friendlies.

SGA, Farscape, SGU )
