Revenge -- I finally finished watching the last few eps of season one

JUST STAY RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE AND DO NOT DO ANYTHING REVENGE-Y UNTIL I GET THERE. )



Worst way to find out your series has started its new season... SPOILERS ON FUCKING TUMBLR. MY EYES.THEY BURN.



Just putting this out there - I legitimately want a dreamatorium. No seriously, I'm not kidding. I want one.



The City and the City was absolutely fucking epic. It was amazing, I loved it. While the setting was far and away the best part, the plot was a solid crime drama, the main character was compelling and the sides were interesting.

As for Embassytown, the language elements were very interesting. The plot twisted in an unexpected way, but ultimately it didn't grab me in the same way The City did. I'm not sure I can pinpoint why, probably just that I found The City so compelling a setting, my expectations were perhaps too high?

I stand by what I said re-dictionary swallowing. Bloody Hell.

[Spoilers for The City] )

OMG

Was watching In the Bullpen by genusshrike (Natasha vid) which may well be the best thing since sliced bread, but then I see that scene near the end with Clint staring holes in Loki's head and Loki's eyeflick and then NATASHA WHISPERING SOMETHING IN CLINT'S EAR, AND HIS SHIT-EATING GRIN. And omg the amount of fucked up denial and fronting and PTSD fuckery in that threesome. YES FUCKING PLEASE. NATASHA CLINT AND LOKI TRAPPED IN A CAVE. BRING IT.



SFX in Brokeback mountain. (Also known as that CG sheep movie?)

This can be entirely blamed on [personal profile] jane_potter 

It's a snippet of a verse where Odin didn't raise Loki as his son, instead he kept him trapped down in the vaults along with all the other spoils of war. It's probably not going to go anywhere, and I was cleaning out my fic folder, so here it is.




Thor was not a complicated man. )

First, if you haven't you all have to go read Aspeninthesunlight's A Year Like No Other, because it's absolutely wonderful, and even if the first few chapters don't quite get you (it was written mid series and for example, Snape's backstory is no longer canon compliant) stick with it and the plot and the worldbuilding will deffo hook you in.

Consider yourself warned however - character death, pain, violence. Or more explicit spoiler warnings: [under cut )].

But the reason you need to read, is that Aspen talks about Slytherin ways of doing things vs Gryffindor ways. The convoluted plans Snape and Draco come up with are very complex and Slytherin and occasionally too damn clever for their own good. On the other hand the Gryffindor plans that Harry (mostly) comes up with are straightforward and occasionally far too blunt. So there's this interesting balance she plays with.

Well, I was thinking about Loki and Thor, and MY GOD they are epitomising the Slyth/Gryff divide.

If we set aside Loki's Daddy issues and self worth issues (a lot to set aside, I know, but bear with me) then basically the entire movie is him saying to Thor:

"GDI THOR. Fight me, hate me, love me, fuck me, kill me, SEE ME!"  
And doing all this crap to get his brother to focus on him.

Whereas Thor is sitting there going: "YEAH YEAH! GO LOKI! LOKI LOKI HE'S OUR MAN. ILU BROTHER YOU'RE THE BEST!"

And Loki's like: O_o

And Thor's like: "Should I break out the pompoms?"

And Loki's like: OMG HE HATES ME. I WILL KILL EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD.

And Thor's like: O_o

THE END.


Um, my argument may have broken down towards the end.

NOW LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO (and by you, I mean me).


I was going to make a massive picspam post of tumblr steals, but then it was taking ages and then I posted just the links and I didn't like it.

SO I JOINED TUMBLR.

And since every blog needs some idiotic conceit. There is a THREE WORD LIMIT to all things ever.

kthxbi

I told you I was procrastinating. This vid totally ate my day. And have I mentioned recently how much I hate my computer? BECAUSE I DO. It's impossible to get timings right when the computer is constantly freezing up. UGH.

Every time my computer crashes, Loki sadfaces.
