Wynonna Earp <3 Doc Holliday

Can I just say how RIDICULOUSLY attractive I'm finding Doc Holliday on Wynonna Earp.



Like. Really. Really. Ridiculously. Good looking.

Despite the mustache. (Because of the mustache?)



Also. The fact that he played the Druid guy in Lost Girl is killing me. IDK why, I find it utterly hilarious. Druid guy was also stupidly hot, while also being totally ridiculous and wearing terrible clothes. Also morally ambigous. No mustache though. 



Is it a real mustache though? This is the question. Cos it's grey whereas his hair isn't. Which makes me think fake. Also it takes time to grow something that big. And he clearly didn't sport one before. But then he has facial hair in interviews so maybe he'd just shaven it off after the show? IDK.

I have spent too much time pondering the question of this man's facial hair.

He's hot. It makes him hotter! It makes him look kinda rat-like?



He's really sexy. He's kinda wiry and weaselly looking? IDK

I mean, there's this:


But I prefer this:



Did I mention he has a hat?



I have lost perspective. I would very much like HBO to buy this series and then fill every episode with really explicit sex scenes in which Wynonna and Doc fuck on every surface in the house and then christen the pink car, and also other highly specific fantasies I may or may not have had regarding these two. And fucking.



Seriously I have not had such a pornographic reaction to a pairing in... Ever?

In other news, this series has, like diversity and stuff.

Also, this breakdown of how it's basically Buffy, rings fairly true. But I definitely get a Faith vibe off Wynonna more than a Buffy.

CAPTIVE PRINCE!!!!!

Ordered the final book and it arrived today. In an unprecedented effort of self control, I managed a single sketchbook painting before giving in and reading for the next 4 hours. 

IT WAS SO GOOD. GUYS. THIS SERIES. IT'S THE BEST. IT WILL DESTROY YOU.

I should probably try and do some actual work now.

Update

 It's almost time for New Year's resolutions. Kinda. Not really, I guess, but if they can be selling mince pies in Sainsburys, then I can be thinking about New Year.

Anyway, updates...

FIC! Written a while back and I missed the reveals (oops) but here is my gen fic in all it's depressed!Bucky glory! Multiple and profuse thanks to [personal profile] charloween  and [personal profile] theoret  for betaing, cheerleading and generally making the fic happen. I'm glad to have finally busted through my writer's block. Not that I've written much since, but that's been down to busyness and stress, not lack of drive.

I'm in the final days of my Foundation course (it's a 3 month intensive thing) and smack bang in the middle of applications for undergrad. Yes, the return to university is, well, not imminent, but immanent, maybe. 

As for cafe guy. I had given up, but then I went in a few days ago and he was there and I made some utterly inane comment about the music and it was awful. WHY CAN'T LIFE BE MORE LIKE FIC?

The Musketeers

So, the Musketeers is on the BBC, 4 eps in to a 10 ep season. It's occasionally silly and somewhat formulaic, but it's also got a wonderfully diverse cast, tackles slavery in the 3rd episode, has two awesome, interesting female characters (who, I think completely failed the Bechdel test. GDI). And Peter Capaldi playing the ancestor to modern-day Malcolm Tucker.

Actually in general, (excepting D'artagnan, who is a bit of a blank character anyway) the acting is all pretty damn good. Capaldi, obvs. But Tom Burke's Athos is gorgeously conflicted and hates everything. Milady is great as the manipulative, secretive, possibly-not-completely-evil reason for Athos' manpain. The king is perfect and weak and petty and awful. I enjoyed Aramis' angsty turn last ep. It's still early days yet, but we've got the Porthos centric ep coming up, and then I'm hoping for a longer arc to round out the season, who knows.

ANYWAY. The reason for this post - beyond an attempt to enable people into the fandom (Everyone is ridiculously shippy. EVERYONE. Without the writing being Godawful slashbait.) - THE REASON is that it looks GREAT. And it's not just the filming (a lot on location, which really makes the difference, but even the sets look good). It's also the CLOTHES. I'd like to make a follow up Milady/Constance post, and one for the aristo's as well, but for now - the Musketeers:

This post is brought to you by the letter V

VIDUKON! I sort of wasn't sure about going this year, but then I looked at the con webpage and was like. OMG. YES. THIS OLD THING AGAIN. SIGN ME UP. So, I did.

ANYWAY. I totally want to do a panel or something again. The brainstorming post will go up soon, which is good, since I have nooo idea what I might do as I'm still in the awkward watcher-not-creator place. But whatever, IDK. Thoughts. Blah. Vids.



VIDS!

Much as I hate google's relentless drive to unite us all under google+ I have to say, having my youtube history saved has been really useful.

For the second time* this month I've been able to place an elusive song, the lyrics and singer of which I had completely forgotten. (The first was to try and find The Heavy to rec them to someone.) All I remembered was the useless, instrumental/vocal section, and typing "oh ohohh ohh" into google doesn't do all that much. Anyway, the song I was looking for was So Cold by Ben Cocks and I knew I'd first heard it on a youtube Potter vid. It's a good thing I try and centralise my fandom browsing under my fandom email though. The accidentally- signed-in-as-someone-else thing can be a pain. Especially because, and to go back to my previous, unite us all under google+ hate - I don't want my fannish browsing to come up under the farm's work email. It's not even my personal work email. It's the email for the entire business. It's so fucking annoying.

Anyway, I figured. I know I've probably recced most of these already. But there's never a wrong time to rec more Harry Potter vids.

So cold by Julia36229 - Despite this being the reason I started searching, it's actually not a favourite. it's got the classic youtube effects make over - blown out sound and contrast.

Harry Potter Feat. Glitch Mob by Grable424 - This one's just a really fun action-er

Never Fall Away by Grable424 - GODDAMN. THIS IS SO FUCKING DRAMATIC. I'M CRYING.

Breaking Point by niicoleelee - The name says it all. This just makes me want to cry.



VAMPIRES!

Things that made me smile

7 Things your flight attendant wants you to know - (No 7.) I didn't know kids could still visit the cockpit (after landing). That makes me so happy! I was inordinately sad when I heard that wasn't a thing any more. I mean, I understood it, but it was still sad to hear. I remember going into the cockpit as a kid and being AMAZED. ALL THE BUTTONS. SO MANY BUTTONS. THE COOLEST FLYING MACHINE IN THE WORLD.

Spiderman playing basketball with local kids between takes - NGL part of me is thinking, hmm, clever marketing, guys. But most of me is just. SPIDERMAN, YOU ARE THE HERO THAT GIVES ME THE MOST NORMAL PEOPLE FEELS. Like, the train scene? The crane scene? Ugh. Just stop.

Common Law Gag Reel - STUPID DANCING. [personal profile] theoret . FOR YOUR VID. WHY WAS THIS SHOW CANCELLED???? WHYYYYYY?

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)

LOOPER!!

 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.

Teaching is boring boring boring

I've been reading bits of Jane Austen fic recently, and then I found this wonderful thing.

And then I decided I needed to watch all the adaps I haven't yet seen. Mostly it's all the Emmas, but there was a P&P before Ehle and Firth, and a recent Sense and Sensibility. Also I'm going to give the 1999 Mansfield Park a go because wiki says they changed all the things. (I despise Mansfield Park.)

And now, an awesome women being happy gif party!

I don't know by humansrsuperior

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.

if you liked the book you'll hate the movie by paperclipbitch
XMFC, Hank/Alex, Charles/Erik [high!school!au], [family dynamics]
This, seriously, this. I can't even explain, it's not what you expect. It's fun, but it becomes brilliant around Alex's POV, when the Charles/Erik not!flirting steps up, and the dysfunctional!family aspect kicks in. It's like crack except perfect. And I haven't the words. Just read it, it'll have you in stitches (and keep you up 'till five, apparently).

A bunch of stored up things, some old, some new, some medium rare.

I wasn't lying when I made those last straw posts. I've finally had enough. That's not to say I'm dropping my white men fandoms. I'm not. I love them, I'm not going to deny that. But I've reached the point where I just can't stand to continue as I have been, complaining and still doing nothing.

So here is my first step on the path to hypocrisy-free media consumption and critique. For every white men centric source I consume (tv/film/vid I watch, book/fanfic I read etc) I'm going to consume two things about women or POC, a corresponding source if I can, but if not, fic for film or book for vid or any permutation is fine, as long as it's two for every one.

It's not exactly arduous! More media to enjoy!

The same rule however, is going for fanworks. I've got my Wolf!Stiles fic to post soon, and after that I'll create two female/POC centric fics/fan works. (Oh, and a twofer only counts as one.) They don't have to be equivalent size, it's more about opening my mind to the possibilities, it's not like I don't have fics about women and POC rattling around in my skull, but instead of rattling and back burnering, I'm pushing them to the front.

Plus I can work on original fic as well, (in fact that should probably take priority, um). So my work won't always appear up here, but when it's fandom related it definitely will.
