- Peggy and Gaby talking about being ladies in a male dominated field and also having A+ outfit game.
- Peggy giving Gaby advice on taking down bigger, larger men. Gaby takes to the advice “hit em with whatever’s handy” like a duck to water.
- Waverly’s low-key crush on Agent Carter. You know he has it.
- Gaby geeking out over stark tech and then hardcore shutting down Howard Stark when he tries to get into her pants.
- Napoleon and Angie competing for best reaction faces.
- Napoleon and Angie competing for ‘most dramatic person’ in the room.
- Illya being star-struck and not admitting it when he crosses paths with Dottie Underwood, one of THE Black Widows, even if she is a traitor to the state.
- …When Illya defects, he comes back to his apartment to find a bottle of peach schnapps (which tastes disgusting) and a note in Russian that says, “You can be anyone you want now, Illuyshka. Choose wisely.” Gaby loves the schnapps, which might have been the point.
ALSO, the digital release of The Man From UNCLE is today (I know know why the actual DVD is coming out a month fom now). ALL OF YOU should go watch it so I will have more people to talk about TMFU, but ESPECIALLY geckoholic and qualapec! I'm so excited.
Me: That's so great.... I really hope that I can figure out the deadlines, word minimum, how an exchange works on tumblr, etc.
(There was a Q&A with the notification post, but I ended up going 'YES, I absolutely want to do this' at 6:30 am. after an entire six hours of disrupted sleep so, you know, that was a life choice I made.)
Also, I'm doing Yuletide this year, even though half the things I want to request/offer are not eligible (Anastasia, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries). I'm currently beating my head against what I want my fourth offer to be. I know I am going to offer to write The Man From Uncle, Fury Road, and probably Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. After that it's a toss up between Push or iZombie (and before you say 'red, why don't you offer to write both' the answer is I would greatly prefer to write TMFU or Fury Road, and the more things I offer to write, the greater the chance I won't get either of those two).
Or, for the low, low price of whatever you’re paying for your internet connection, you could visit this wonderful place called Archive Of Our Own and REALLY get the adult harry potter experience.
This showed up on my dash and I literally hissed at my computer screen.
This is the reason that I am so fucking salty about Bucky/Steve shippers and people are 'BI STEVE ROGERS, ACTUALLY CANON.' BECAUSE IT ALWAYS COMES WITH THIS GROSS SIDE OF PEGGY CARTER ERASURE.
And come on, guys, it is not like you don't have PLENTY of material in support of your ship. Because you have PLENTY. Now please leave my Peggy/Steve scenes alone.
Anyway, today is going to be long and boring, so if anyone is interested, I'd love to talk fandom.
….‘and then Illya’s asshole superiors call him back to Moscow and Gaby is ALONE, ONCE AGAIN ABANDONED BY THE MEN IN HER LIFE, but that’s alright, she’s strong, she’s USED TO THIS, and Illya thinks that IT’S BETTER THIS WAY, SHE IS FREE TO FIND SOMEONE WHO MAKES HER TRULY HAPPY while snow tragically falls.’
Specifically the one that starts around 1:10 and I honestly can't tell if that's the same song heard later in the trailer. Google-fu has failed me.
So, let's play a game because I want to write but I have no time and no brain right this instant.
In the comments:
1. write me a ficlet OR
2. tell me the fic you'd like me to write OR
3. tell me about the fic you'd write for me.
Be detailed! Give plotbunnies and twists and turns, tell me the backstory, or the character thoughts.
And, once you're done, give me a prompt for a fic and I'll tell you the fic I'd write based off it.
I'll take all my usual pairings/characters/teams, and anything you think you have a snowflake's hope in hell of getting me to ship. :)
I was listening to the Fury Road OST track “Mary Jo Bassa” on my commute yesterday and seriously, listening to that song hurts so much I was smiling.
Also, I was talking to geckoholic and my feelings for Furiosa… it’s like this. Unually, when I love a female character my reaction to her is something like this:
But with Furiosa, I feel like it doesn’t quite fit? Like, I’m TOO AWARE of the fact that Furiosa would never want to be called queen or goddess so going forward when I feel the need to express my love for Furiosa I think I just need to roll off her self-indentifiers, Furiosa, one of the Vuvalini, of the Many Mothers. Her initiating Mother was KT Concannon and she is the daughter of Mary Jo Bassa, of the Clan Swaddle Dog.
gacked from tielan :
Anyway, anyone want to ask me a question? Anything and everything fannish. You get to ask me a question and I ask you a question back for as long as you care to keep it up.
Le sigh. It’s not fun to get a whole bunch of notifications for things that I don’t want to read.
Also, I’m getting rid of people on my twitter feed and tumblr dash who don’t like Felicity/Oliver.
Because while I am not going to say there are no reasons NOT to like Felicity/Oliver and/or the way season three played out, I DO NOT FUCKING WANT TO SEE YOUR DISLIKE.
It’s like, Olicity is a thing that is happening, and I still can’t believe it.
You guys, I thought hints were all we were going to get. I BET MOVIE TICKETS that Felicity/Oliver was not endgame.
NEVER DID I THINK MY SUB-TEXTY NOT-PLANNED, OTP-THAT-I-COULDN’T-QUIT WOULD GET THIS KIND OF VALIDATION.
THEY DROVE OFF INTO THE SUNSET TOGETHER.
OLIVER WANTS TO MARRY HER.
