Oh also, racism on tv. Newsflash.

Ask no questions, hear no lines by ienablu, Maria Hill fic. Really great Maria characterisation, and I can be picky about her.

Where I don't talk about the fic at all, but about SHIELD (tv) instead )

(Thanks to [community profile] fail_fandomanon . Which is pure gold. btw. I thought it'd be all wank, which, it has some, but mostly it's gold. And fic recs)

A couple of trailers I missed in my last post:

'Byzantium' and 'The Company You Keep' )

Anyone know anything about this Item 47 movie? Is it basically a way of getting people into watching SHIELD? (Not that we need any more encouragement). Also, am I wrong with the whole Benny and Claire/Bonnie and Clyde thing? I really liked the actress since Mean Girls and True Blood so I hope they keep them both somehow. Maybe in the tv show? (And he's the guy in Bring It On y/y? AH those were the days).

Looking at more Marvel extras: The Loki/Hawkeye deleted scene from Avengers - Firstly, that look up at 1:20? So deliberate and so wonderful. I could just EAT HIM. ALL OF HIM. (In a non creepy cannibal way. GDI HANNIBAL. YOU SCREW UP EVERYTHING.)

But also, the eyeball? That horrible, disgusting trick Loki pulled? Totally Hawkeye's idea.

Where is the fic that delves into all Clint's pain? HE MUST HAVE SO MUCH PAIN. SO FUCKING MUCH.

Also, I did not realise the whole Maria Hill kinda hates Nick Fury vibe they were going for. The alternate opening makes it more obvious, but rewatching Avengers just now, (which is an exercise in heartache btw. I just want to shout at the screen. NO LOKI. WHAT ARE YOU DOING? STOP IT. GET SOME THERAPY. BUY SOME ICECREAM. SOMEONE TELL THOR TO GIVE HIM A HUG. FFS.) and she's kinda pissed off at him from the get go. IS THERE GOING TO BE A SUDDEN BUT INEVITABLE BETRAYAL. BY A WOMAN. ZOMG HOW FUCKING GROUNDBREAKING. If they tie the creepy old white guys council into Avengers 2 by having Maria Hill turn.

The Tempest review )

Watched the Anne Lister documentary with Sue Perkins. Perkins is funny. All I really know her from isJust a Minuteand she does come across as a bit smug there. Sort of, playing it for points not the funnies. But she was pretty good in this. I mean, they're doing the usual modern documentary thing of having the presenter be about a 1/4 involved and the 3/4s on the actual historic person. It can come across less like 'queer people through the ages' and more 'LOLOL lesbians talking about lesbians'. But only a little. And anyway, the historical facts were all fascinating.

NGL though I want to know more about half-Indian bastard Eliza. The poor discarded first love.

So, this recent news about the three girls kept in a house for ten years. (I'm not linking because it's fucking sick, but if you google Amanda Berry you'll probably find it)

I'm already not watching The Following because this is a thing I do sometimes. Stop watching all my shows. (Oh hello Vikings, I haven't seen you in a month)

But I don't think I want to go back to it. I don't want to to root for the men who keep women in cages. I don't want to to be so inured to such hideous, life shattering violence against women that I don't even see those TV victims as people. Just obstacles

I don't want to to be part of the culture that thinks it's okay to desensitise us to this shit. That teaches us to to see these women, not as people but as windows dressing. And I'm not going to suddenly stop loving the creepy cop/killer dynamic. But I've had it to here with all the fucking baggage that goes with it.

"I think that's a really creepy pairing... but hey, read what you like."

NO NO NO. Those are not two phrases that taste great together. It's either one or t'other. You are absolutely allowed to say you think something is creepy. Hannibal/Will? HELLA CREEPY. IN CASE I HAVE NOT MADE THIS OBVIOUS. THERE IS PEOPLE EATING. AND A DEER THAT I THOUGHT WAS A MOOSE BECAUSE APPARENTLY I CAN'T ANIMAL.

But you can't append that with 'but hey if you like it fine, (you weirdo). Because the 'you weirdo' will always be implied because you just said it was creepy and didn't allow enough space for the tone of your argument to shift from OMG YUCK! to HEY ALL KINKS ARE AWESOME!

Just say them separately. Space them out. Let one exist and then the other.

GUYS. SHUTTUP. THIS IS A THING THAT MAKES SENSE. DON'T TELL ME I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO DOESN'T GET PISSED OFF BY THIS. I get far more pissed off by this backing and forthing than people outright saying my shipping preferences squick them out. I kinda get off on that shit. You think Young/Rush is the absolute pits? You think Wincest is goddamn disgusting? You can't stand creepy Harry/Snape non-con chan?

HAHAHA sucks to be you.

That shit rolls of my back. This shit is passive aggressive.

(Disclaimer, yes I've probably done exactly this in that past. Whatever. I win at hypocrisy.)

Watched Waitress again. Loved it, so entirely women's pov, women's stories. Tough issues with a light and slightly surreal touch. Only nitpick is spoilers )

I've been listening to Just A Minute recently, and I was thinking about comedians and how doing a show like that is mostly about being quick-witted. It's all banter, you know? Hearing something, saying something sharp or funny or sarcastic without really having any time to think about it.

And then I started thinking about the Avengers Theatre AU and the Loki problem. I mean, flyting is basically a war of banter and 'your mum' jokes. Only with slightly more entrails and torture.

So, Loki the comedian. A comedian hired to be the villain in the panto, so we still get the villain thing.

I'm actually going to have to write this now aren't I?

I'm Glad You Came by shadowhisper


GAH. I didn't even. That wasn't supposed to happen. Now I'm going to have to start watching it properly.


mostly recs, a couple of anti-recs and some thoughts on race fail and remakes )

Fandoms I will read absolutely everything I can get my hands on. NO MATTER HOW AWFUL.

THE DON'T JUDGE ME ONE: Blade Trinity Drake/King
THE SHINY NEW ONE: Teen Wolf Isaac/Scott
THE LONG-STANDING ONE: HP Snape mentors Harry Potter
THE ONLY PERSON TO WRITE IT WAS ME ONE: 30 Days of Night Eben/Stranger

It's alive!

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


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] )


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?)

Trailers )

Pushing Tin, Bourne Legacy, Batman, Spiderman )

More thoughts about Natasha - )

Prometheus pre-quel. This is hilarious guys, you have no idea.

Teen Wolf/P&P fusion vid trailer. LOL FOREVERER. On a related note, is Sterek just a tease? I've read the meta, but I'm not convinced. Trusting a show to make a slash ship reality just seems so very impossible.

Also also, I'm only half way through S2 so DON'T SPOIL ME.

Legend of Korra (spoilers) )

Completely random webcomic rec -- This is utterly gorgeous. A very nifty idea. It's a short comic about an illustrator and his attempts to escape his editor. It uses folds and light and angles to create a 3D effect with just paper and pencil. Quite short. Worth a look.

[community profile] veni_vidi_vids  have closed down, :( sadface forever. Where am I going to get my vid recs from now? A lot of people don't post to vidding

Anyone have a reccing newsletter or pinboarddiigodelicious thing they do? I'm so behind on the web 2.0 reccing scene, I have no idea how it works.

I love reading awesome feminist posts on the internet. But then I read the comments, and after the usual +1 positive stuff, comes the derailing and the plain awful -- The men who make it all about them, the Nice Guys, and then the women who've internalised all the same misgynistic crap and just regurgitate it back. UGH. MY GUTS. THEY ARE IN KNOTS. Example: The art of no, cont.

Req. hate on Natasha.

About face! )

Short Story recs by Aliette de Bodard

Effects of Colonialisation and cultural hegemony? The ending made me cry (in a good way). This fic is clever and brilliant.

Scattered along the river of heaven
Revolution and the aftermath. Great world-building and dB does a good job of slipping the expo into the story. It takes place in the same universe as Immersion, but on different planets and stations with mostly different poeples (Galatic is mentioned in passing). The ending is sharp and clever.

Fandom wank:

Oh SPN fandom. Never stop.
Hiddles fans are just as cray cray.

All the How It Should Have Ended superhero clips on youtube are AWESOME. Is there banter filled fanfic from the HISHE superhero cafe? Because I WANT.

Also, this is basically the Chitauri fanfic I wanted in vid form.

A couple of film reviews:

Attack the Block and Tinker Tailor )

Natasha/Clint and thoughts. )

Justified question

Is Tim canonically gay? Is that too progressive for Justified? Is it fanon? Because I realised I was basically accepting it as fact in all Tim eps and IDK where exactly I got it from. It just seems like a thing that makes sense.

And on a completley different note, I found a couple of old posts where requireshate absolutely eviscerates Anne Bishop's Black Jewels series (here and here).

Yes, they are that awful, they're my terrible, bottom drawer, id-fic, shameful love, but they really are awful.

nemonclature: Raylan biting his lip, text: um (Um)
Guys, I need me some mind-fuckery. I don't really care what permutation: consent issues, hurt/comfort, aftermath, AU... whatever.  Complete non-con/rape isn't really what I'm looking for, but anything that cuts very close to the line is still okay.

Rec me?

nemonclature: Daria looking unamused (hugs)
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. )

"Gentlemen... and that one hot chick over there. What are you prepared to do?":

Miss Piggy = Nick Motherfucking Fury:

I wanna quote, but the whole thing's hilarious - literal rap Captain America Trailer:

And bonus literal Harry Potter Deathly Hallows trailer because I love that shit:

As far as I can tell, this is what it'd look like if Bridget Jones interviewed Chris Evans:
At this point, which was a…number of drinks in, it was easy to forget that it really was an interview, and I'd be lying if I said it didn't cross my mind that something might happen (and that we'd go to the Oscars and get married and have babies forever until we died?).

Also I'm just stealing all links ever from [ profile] aliassmith JSYK.

IDK if I want to try at nano again. On the one hand, I do want to. On the other, I have left it veeery late to do any planning and I already tried it once doing it without. That was fail.

I have one hundred billionty things to do, I NEED TO STOP READING AVENGERS AND TEEN WOLF FIC. PLEASE. STOP ME NOW. )
