So, I finally saw Ant-Man, hated it. Only restrained myself from pulling out my laptop and doing other things because I was watching the movie with other people and I did not want to ruin their time by being blatant about how much I disliked it. This lays out some of my problems, and I just want to stress that the fact that Hank lost his wife was does not excuse the YEARS OF ABANDONMENT he inflicted on his daughter or at that fact that he doesn’t want to lose her doesn’t change the fact that he DOES NOT RESPECT HER.
Also, I felt so bad for Cassie’s step-father, who was PRESENT IN HER LIFE and handled some pretty hurtful (if funny) comments from his step daughter with poise, but I’m supposed to root against him, because he don’t look like a handsome weasel like Paul Rudd.
Also, I hate ants, so i literally had to look away from the screen at a couple of the swarming scenes.
Admittedly, there were some really funny moments. I adored Luis’ two stories in particular, and I was DELIGHTED by crazy stupid hot guerrilla reporter who knows Falcon.
And finally, several times during the movie I was like, ‘another fucking movie about a dude learning to use his powers. I can’t believe they made this instead of a Black Widow movie.’
There are former LJers who would like to return, but their friends lists have been deserted.
Let's all welcome them back with open arms and show them that LJ is very much alive!
If you're new to my LJ, and want a fun way to ask me questions, my january talk meme turned into my february talk meme. If you have been here a while... I'm sure you're shocked, my january talk meme turned into my february talk meme. There's open spaces if you'd like to ask me questions!
Okay, normally, I can play along with these types of questions, but for this one, my mind went, "Disney would never in a million years do this," and I couldn't get past it. Disney is not going to have a queer character in ANY of their major franchise UNLESS the superhero folk manage to slip it past the radar. One of their princesses is not going to be queer UNTIL homosexuality/ sexualities-that-are-not-hetero are SO COMMON in the culture that the only comment pop culture would make about it would be 'finally, Disney gets with the times.'

To which I went, "lolz, I'm sure, whatever you say."
In other news, I kinda dig how we live in a world now where the flap copy is can be like 'THIS IS MY RPF FICTION WITH A FEW NAMES CHANGED, ENJOY.'
I mean, there are downsides (Shades of Grey) but I kinda find the honestly hilarious?
Which is to say, I finally got The Royal We. I really enjoyed about 90% of it - it's frothly and genuinely funny. My favorite part was( Read more...Collapse )
I think, "this is an angsty Clint Barton/Kate Bishop fic waiting to be written."
But I do have a technical question that AO3 FAQ couldn't answer for me. This part I'm currently posting SHOULD end up being part 3 (there are some bonus fics set prior to the main action). Is there a way when I upload a new work as part of a series it shows as part 1 instead of part 2?
