Actually, I'm looking for specific Steve/Bucky recs: the ones you would use to entice someone new into Steve/Bucky fandom. Because honestly, at this point I've probably read everything tagged Steve/Bucky on A03 or pinboard at least 5 times and have no sense of perspective any more, but I have a friend I've been working on, and after Winter Soldier he finally sees it, but I want to give him the good stuff. So what are your personal favorites or stories you think are especially good for newbies? (He's familiar with the whole Avengersverse but has not read any fic in that fandom).

I should really be in bed, because tomorrow morning is going to suck, but a few thoughts on the film, which I really enjoyed, and probably also spoilers for this week's Agents of SHIELD (as well as obvious spoilers for CA!) Read more... )

I realize this is a car commercial and I completely don't care, because it's the kiddie version of the Captain American trailer and it has totally made my day.

This is my 1000th post! Considering I've been on LJ for nearly 10 years now, I clearly don't post a lot. But I'm happy that my 1000th post is fannish squee about Thor: the Dark World. Non-spoilery: this is currently my favorite Avengers-series movie. I really, really enjoyed it except for one or two things. (Many many spoilers behind the cut). Read more... )

1. It's two weeks since Fast and Furious 6 came out, and there is no Letty/Riley slash on A03 (or anyplace else I can find.) Universe, why aren't you catering to my needs?

2. [personal profile] rsadelle persuaded me to see "Now You See Me," and despite the fact that neither Jesse Eisenberg nor Mark Ruffalo is much of a draw for me, it was a really fun caper movie, with one of my all-time favorite movie fight scenes. (Magic for the win!)

3. Probably everyone in Avengers fandom has already seen this, but if not, Steve Rogers' American Captain is a fantastic "diary comic" about Steve coping with life in the modern world.

One of my biggest narrative kinks in Avengers fic is stories centering on Bruce reconciling with the Hulk, and Irreconcilable Differences does so in 130,000 words of angsty goodness. A mutant manages to split Hulk and Bruce into two separate people, and they finally come to terms with each other. This has a wonderful Hulk perspective, terrific team bonding, and a nice Tony/Bruce romance as well. I warn you, though, if this is your cup of tea it is extremely hard to put down; I think I had plans to do other things than read for six hours this afternoon!

So I've only been checking the local theater website for Avengers showtimes for about a month now, and until yesterday they only had the midnight show listed. (Which I really can't go to since I have to be at work at 8, and I really really can't take the day off).

But now they have showtimes for next weekend listed and they are all 3-D! [I am blind in one eye so I can't do 3-D at all]. I am very confused, though, since one of the 2 midnight shows is non-3D. So they're just doing one midnight show in 2-D, and no others? Why, why, why universe??! Am I really going to have to take a bus to [large California city] just to watch this movie?

Between my trip home and fannish excursions with [personal profile] rsadelle and [personal profile] talitha78, I feel like I've seen a lot of movies lately, though I don't have much to say about most of them. Nonspoilery reactions: Sherlock Holmes had ALL THE SLASH (so much I'm surprised it didn't create a sort of vortex sucking all the slash out of every other existing source); Mission Impossible was not nearly as slashy as I had been told it was, though it was still a fun popcorn movie; and We Bought a Zoo was just as formula as you're expecting, though enlivened by a great cast (Colin Ford, aka young Sam Winchester; Elle Fanning, aka that great young actress from Super 8; Scarlett Johannsen, and Maggie Elizabeth Jones, who seriously may be the cutest child in world history). My only real complain about We Bought a Zoo is that Matt Damon has got to stop playing these bad-hair roles; it's kind of traumatizing.

What else? I mainlined Once Upon a Time a couple weekends ago, and now I am reading all the Emma/Regina I can find, because that's exactly the kind of enemy slash I live for. (I'm only about halfway through the Yuletide stories, though, since I'm making myself read alphabetically as an attempt at self-discipline.

My current total obsession, though, is Avengers, and I'm not really sure how that happened, though I'm sure [personal profile] talitha78 shares at least a bit of the blame credit. Possibly if I get more organized, Yuletide and Avengers recs will follow sometime in the near-ish future.

And that's pretty much everything I've been up to on my winter vacation. *Waves**
