  • How many Steve Rogers icons is too many Steve Rogers icons? I'm asking for a friend.

  • You will never hear me ask how many Natasha Romanoff icons is too many Natasha Romanoff icons, because there is no such thing as too many Natasha Romanoff icons.

  • I deleted all my stock | real person icons (except this one) because I'm weird partially to give me more icon room to play with and partially because... I dunno, like, I'm weird about using celebrity's images when they're being themselves and not a character. Plus, I feel like I have to be 100% sure that any celebrity that I have an icon of, I like, think is a legitimately amazing person, and that's just a lot of pressure, you know?

Jennifer Crusie wrote an article on first meetings using Felicity and Oliver’s.

On the subject of her writing advice, I’m not sold on the necessity of needing the characters to be vulnerable, but I’d define it more broadly as characters needing to have a clear, emotional change during to the first meeting.

But really, you should be reading this article for the shade Crusie throws on Laurel/Oliver, the hightlights of which are:

That means that the viewer is given nothing to build future expectations on and in fact, actively hopes they never meet again because these people are unpleasant to watch: two hard, shiny surfaces who make each other colder by their proximity.


(It should be noted that Laurel is still supposed to be Oliver’s One True Love. I have no idea what show the people who keep saying that are watching, but I don’t think it’s this one.)

So say we all, Jenny Crusie. So. Say. We. All.

This Wednesday's Black Widow and Hawkeye were so epic and perfect and amazing that there really is nothing left for me to say.

I did one of those tumblr cloud things, and it was a complete farce, frankly.

It gave me words that I rarely use, said I reblogged most from tumblrs I don’t follow, didn’t come up with anything fannish, really, and when I expanded it to try and get something interesting, the only fannish thing it threw out was ‘Damian’ which, lol, do you realize how little I talk about him in comparison with EVERYONE ELSE WHO HAS A NAMED TAG ON MY TUMBLR?

Sheesh. It annoyed me enough that I tried to create my own, more accurate word cloud, and failed.

One of the things that I love about looking over people’s prompts (besides getting a head-start so I’ll actually be able to post something during PB) is seeing what people tend to ship as a whole. It’s interesting when you’ll get comments were you’re like, ‘HELL NO to all twenty of those pairings you just prompted’ or the times when you have your FAVORITE pairing in the same prompt comment as a pairing you really dislike. (LJ prompt post. DW prompt post.)

While trolling through the prompts for PB, I have found a threesome prompt that I cannot wait to write.

Guess what it is. Guess, guess! I want to know if you can.

Oh, this is going to be such fun.

ETA: Okay, I'm watching the most recent Arrow and I may have two OT3 that I care about. God, Sin is just a delight!
