Just wanted to say, I'm still here. There just hasn't been much fandom worthy stuff of late. I hate how sequels let me down; I can't get into DOFP the way I did XMFC. Particularly sad when First Class was what actually got me interested in the comics themselves (I'd seen the Iron Mans but only because I like RDJ, not because of comics). And I'm still not even caught up on shows from the winter. I have given up on SPN. All I ever feel is anger anymore; at fans and at TPTB.

One of these days (when my RL shit is together) I'm going to get around to putting fics up on AO3 or something. And maybe writing. Ha.

Anyway, please link me to anything important and fun or not-fun that I've missed in my time away. What are YOU doing in your lives?!

I have come across a gif set of the Hugh/Michael/James interview on the Graham Norton show where Hugh and Michael are singing "Africa" and James comments its like he's at a wedding with his two uncles. I cannot find the video for the LIFE of me. Every google search I attempt either brings up the gif set or the clip where they're dancing to Blurred Lines. Does anyone have it?!

And while I'm at it, what was the Avengers interview where they started moving the set?

What is this new layout? Are they trying to look like tumblr?! Someone make it stop!

I just went on a rant about Tony on my tumblr because a) I've been reading some fics that aren't Steve/Tony and apparently if they're not together, Steve basically hates Tony or finds him immature or rude or fake or what-the-fuck-ever and b) people keep making gif sets pointing out Tony's line about knowing all of SHIELD's secrets (via the virus he used to find out about the tesseract) in Avengers and the outcome of Captain America 2 where, well, it seems like Tony missed some dirty secrets. Which yes, he did, but some of the sets out there seem very blame-y and I'm probably just super sensitive, but don't fucking touch Tony if you don't understand him or if you don't like him. I hate people who put character hate into a fic (or gif set, I guess) at the expense of the character.

I know Tony has issues, ok. He's not an angel (figuratively or literally). He's done some shit-ass things like taking Pepper for granted (comics and MCU), not looking out for Happy (comics), locking up friends for not registering (comics). He's an alcoholic. But those issues are why he is who he is and Tony has growth and depth, even in MCU, and if you can't accept them, then just leave him alone. STOP BLAMING HIM. The sad thing is, Tony Stark would blame himself for not magically knowing Hydra had infiltrated SHIELD. He doesn't need everyone else blaming him for it, too.

MF Luder: unrepentant Tony Stark fan. I actually feel like those Dean-is-god fans out there, suddenly.

(In related news, I really wish I could find some Steve/Bucky fic that's either also Steve/Tony fic or at least is Steve/Tony friendship fic.)

If you haven't watch SHIELD from last week or seen Cap2 yet and plan not continue!

(And if you haven't done either but are interested in both, please make sure you see Cap2 BEFORE watching the April 8th SHIELD ep.)

Does anyone have The Maze Runner (and maybe its sequels even) as an audiobook? If not, is there a streaming or DL site for audiobooks (that's not torrents)? I'm going out of town and I have problems falling asleep in that situation, so I'd really like a book to get me through - and in audio format so I'm not bothering my hotel mate.

Thanks in advance! ♥ (I'll screen comments since I'm leaving this post public.)

I have a question. So, I've been seeing a lot of hate at Jared Leto for a) erasing/not acknowledging transpeople and b) not being a transwoman but cast in the role.

But here's what I am curious about...I wasn't old enough/into critical analysis/fandom when Transamerica came out. So, did Felicity Huffman get such arguments against her when she played a transwoman? And if not, what was the difference?

I cannot express my love for Arrow enough. Particularly its women. Anyone who wants more women: strong women, flawed women, women of color, women talking to each other, women caring about each other, women talking about men but also not talking about men, female friendship...this is your show. And I physically cannot express my joy at the characters.

vague spoilersCollapse )

In other, related news, I am so upset no one makes icons and layouts anymore. I just don't have the time or energy to create them anymore and I am dying for a slew of Sara and Sara/Felicity icons. Sigh.

Does anyone know a community or user who still creates LJ layouts? Or an artist who still makes LJ banners? I'm terribly bored of my layout, I think I've had it for 3 years now. I'm particularly looking for DC/Marvel artists and layouts.

I feel like no one does LJ layouts anymore, only tumblr. Sigh. I miss the heyday of LJ.

Go and check out the massive cornucopia of prompts over at the 15th porn battle! I don't know if I'll get anything written myself (though I hope to do at least one fic), but there's so many options and it's always fun to read the stories by others. There's an LJ and a DW post; as well you can use open id on the DW page. Go forth and write porn! Open until February 13th.

And if you want to write me some Sam/Jack/Malcom Barrett or Sam/Jack/Daniel, I'd love you forever.

I just finished this adorable fic and I was literally squeeing over it. This is the Atlantis I love: where marines let kids paint their nails and no one bats an eye. Also, epic, tragic love. And Favorite Uncle Jack. ♥

Apparently today is my 8th LJ anniversary. And about my 9th fandom overall anniversary. Technically I started reading Haven (X-Files forum) when I was about 17 and still in high school, but it wasn't until January of my freshman year of college that I ever read a fic. I consider that the true start of my fandom

Major fandoms in this time:
The X-Files
Stargate: Atlantis
Star Trek (2009) (no fic written)
XMFC (no fic completed)

Secondary fandoms (fic read, mostly lurking otherwise):
Good Omens (no fic written)
Teen Wolf (no fic written)

Others fandoms I've written for:
Kyle XY

Those were the days...

You guys, I have the biggest problem rewatching SG1. You recall Share had a baby? Magical, all-knowing of the Goa'uld genetic memory baby? Who happens to be the son of a black (Egyptian) man and an olive-skinned Egyptian (technically alien, but her people were brought from Egypt) woman. And yet EVERY time they show the baby, HE IS SO WHITE, OMG.

I can't handle it.
