Day 13 - Star Crossed OTP

Okay, that phrase “star-crossed” has a really bad rep, in my mind. It brings up images of drawn-out, mandated romances where the writers keep insisting that two people are totally in love and meant for each other while the audience is like… ummm, no.

So I had to struggle past that, and then try to figure out what ‘star-crossed’ even meant.

And then, this morning, I was intending to talk about Allison and Scott. He’s a werewolf, she’s the daughter of a family of hunters, it’s perfect. Only tonight's episode happened, and everything is sadness.

Day 14 - Childhood OTP (Before You Knew What Shipping Was)

Indiana Jones/Marianne Ravenwood. The fourth Indiana Jones movie got a lot of points in my book, simply for getting those two married.

I decided that it's time to tumblr savior cap 2, one, because I'm at the point where I don't want any more hints about what is going to happen, and two, because nothing will ever top this behind the scenes gif set.

So, I watched the Veronica Mars movies this evening.

And it was honestly really enjoyable, even though it kind of pummeled my heart.

I have lost the original comment, but someone was feeling demoralized about the lady of queer ladies on her screen, so I wanted mention that YOU NEVER HAVE TO ACCEPT LACK OF QUEER LADIES (OR DUDES) ON YOUR SCREEN, and also through out some queer lady recs:

Bomb Girls (two of the four main characters are lesbians)

Orphan Black (a reoccurring character is a lesbian, and she actually gets a really interesting romance)

This post with a fuckton of movies with lesbians.

The Arrow episode Heir of the Demon (with a couple quibbles).

Chicago Fire has a main character who is a lesbian.

I’d check out the Adventure Time episodes with Marceline The Vampire Queen and Princess Bubblegum (uncanon, but only because the network wouldn’t let the show go there).

There is also 2 Broke Girls, which skews more towards the 'queer-bait' end of the spectrum, but has some really slashy moments between the leads.

Title: we all know everyone’s life has been hard enough already
Author: redbrunja
Fandom: Blade: Trinity
Pairing: Abigail Whistler/Hannibal King + Zoë
Rating: PG
Summary: Her plan had been to get to New Mexico in as little time as possible. She'd driven it alone before, done it in one stretch with a couple cat naps and coffee stops, but she'd been forced to admit that it wasn't doable when she was traveling with a six year old and Hannibal King. Especially when she was traveling with Hannibal King.

Rating: R
Warnings: Explicit sex, violent imagery.
Summary: King hadn't dreamt this much about Danica back when she was undead. Not even during the five years he'd been under her heel. And now that she was dead-dead, his subconscious wanted to play resurrectionist?

Seriously, if that movie wasn't being made by marvel, there would be no fucking way I'd want to see it.

The trailer did nothing for me, I think Zoe Saladana looks fugly in half the scenes I've seen her in so far, as does Nebula, if I never saw Chris Pratt's face again, that would be amazing.

And this has nothing to do with the fact that this movie is getting made before Black Widow, or Captain Marvel and Agent Jessica Drew, or a hundred other things I'd rather seen.

It's that there is no fucking way I'm going to get pumped about wacky space-hijinks of a fucking white dude with a doofus face in space.

I watched Blade: Trinity entirely so I could have context for [ profile] alyse’s Hannibal King/Abigail Whisler’s fanfics, which was an excellent life choice that you should all make.

The parts of Blade Trinity that have to do with Blade are super-boring, and some of the fights are cool but most are look SO unbelievably fake but here is why you should watch it:

Now that's what I call quality storytelling.

I just raved about Living Is Easy over on [ profile] het_reccers here but let me just say OH MY GOD, THAT FIC IS GLORIOUS. Seriously, it has so many of my favorite tropes and character dynamics that I feel like it was written solely for my enjoyment.

[ profile] backtothesea asked me:

I'd love to hear any of your favorite myths, fairy tales or urban legends.

tvd 002cbw1q

Beauty & The Beast

I wish I could say something else, but Beauty and the Beast is the fairy tale that I read multiple versions of and it was (and honestly, may still be) my favorite Disney movie.

I’m not thrilled about this choice because Once Upon A Time really kind of ruined my feelings about that fairy tale. I’ve never denied that there are some really negative elements to the Beauty and the Beast story, but Once’s interpretation made it hard for me to see anything else.

That said, this post made me realize I really need to read the original (and fuck yes, for a citable, sole female author) and I just read Cruel Beauty (and I need to reread Robin McKinely's Beauty), so hopefully that will help remove the dirty, guilty sting I presently feel at liking B&B.

Moving on, this isn’t a specific legend, but I freaking love stories of friendly ghosts, e.g. Casper, Phantom Dennis, that one comic about the dude who falls for the ghost haunting his house.

I also love urban legends of all sorts – ‘aren’t you glad you didn’t turn on the light’ (still pissed at Supernatural for screwing their adaptation of this up, among many other reasons) and the vanishing hitchhiker are two of my favs. I also feel like my enjoyment of serial killer fiction and road trip fic are related to this.

ETA: I put on the B&B soundtrack while I was getting this ready to post and ended up singing along and waving my arms dramatically between typing. Yep, definitely my fav disney movie.

I watched The Heat last night with my mom. Loved it. (I know, shocking, right?) But seriously, I laughed so much.

For a couple reasons (wanting to get things besides scrolling on tumblr done, the new WS trailer) I am going to be off of tumblr for most of today. Would someone on my flist mind linking me to the new Winter Soldier trailer gets uploaded to youtube/other streaming site? Because I'd really like to experience that first in trailer instead of gif-set form.

This is definitely going on my top five movies of 2014 (regardless of release date, I organize movies by when I see them). (Or maybe not, depending on how/if my opinion changes based on commentary.)

[+] So... has LJ been withholding comments for anyone else? Just me then.

[+] I am so sad that I have to go to work tomorrow. Luckily just for two days and then I have the 1st off.

[+] I have about a billion tabs of fanfic open.

[+] Since everything is one hiatus, here is my to-watch list of media:

  • Finish the last couple of episodes of season one of Arrow

  • finish watching Nikita (I'm about half-way through the series

  • re-watch season one/watch the rest of Being Human (UK)

  • Plus

[+] I'd like to see Frozen and The Book Thief

[+] I need to go through my folders of random media and figure out what I actually want to watch.
