current fandom stuff

Re: the Hobbit: I ... am really not that thrilled it's three movies now! MORE is not necessarily BETTER, and I legitimately just want a lovingly filmed version of the book that was my actual favorite thing when I was five. Two films, excellent, no need to leave anything out! Three films, I am suddenly concerned about pacing issues and what they will add and ... ahh, I don't know. I am still quite fond of Peter Jackson, but like many directors/showrunners/other wildly successful creative people, he kind of needs someone to tell him when to stop.

Re: Beasts of the Southern Wild: SO GOOD, YOU GUYS, SO GOOD. I don't have anything particularly coherent or spoilery to say, just that I loved it lots and Hushpuppy is the best six-year-old in the entire universe, and possibly also if you're going to see it you should 'ware shakycam if that sort of thing is an issue. But really just. SO GOOD. (And for afters Amiel and I snuck into the middle of The Dark Knight Rises IMAX Experience the next theater over, and spent about five minutes in silent hysterical laughter at Batman and Bane doing DEEP DRAMATIC GRAVELLY VOICES at each other before we snuck back out again to get dinner. Good times!)

Re: Teen Wolf: I ADMIT IT I SUCCUMBED. Enough people whose opinions I find interesting had started to talk about it, so I gave the first few episodes a go, and probably would have stopped except that Polaris follows a lot of the same people I do and was also curious. We watched season one together, a few episodes a night; it was all good silly fun, and then one evening we were cooking dinner or something and started wailing "STIIIILES" at each other. Now I am soldiering forward and enduring the HORRIBLE PAIN of season two alone because [a] I cannot stop or wait and [b] this way I can warn Polaris of the trauma to come. I keep legitimately screaming at the screen! I am SO INVESTED. I have no idea how this happened, but Teen Wolf is a DISEASE, the main symptoms of which seem to be CAPSLOCK IN EMPHASIS and anguished wails of "STIIIILES."

Re: Avengers: ahahdslkfsjkf okay so this fic I am writing. It is my long Avengers found family fic, of course, because I absolutely have to write that; having batted it around with various people, I've narrowed it down from being about absolutely everyone to ... still being about everyone, I guess, but entirely from Thor's POV. This will be an exciting journey! in which Thor and I figure out how the hell to deal with lots of fraught emotions when Thor doesn't have the vocabulary for most of them. Hopefully it will be fun and rewarding and full of unreliable narration and will not drive me totally up the wall! Meantime it's at about 5000 words right now, we haven't even begun to leave Asgard yet, and Amiel laughs at me whenever I venture the hope that this fic will come in under 50,000. Ahaha. Haha.

Nooooo, another one falls to the plague! What IS it with Teen Wolf?? It's so awful and yet it keeps spreading.

Thor feelings! Oh, I love Thor feelings. Also this reminds me I have some month-old feedback for you that I wrote on the bus home from Ithaca, so it's stuck on my netbook. I should probably...go get that.

very agree re: The Hobbit (Peter Jackson noooooooooooo stop it) and VERY EXCITE RE: Avengers found family fic! I cannot wait to read this! But I will! Because it will be worth the wait! Exclamation mark!
thingswithwings: Tony Stark, pleased, holding up a picture of Iron Man, because he loves himself (avengers - tony/tony is tony's otp)

I am so happy to be your fic consultant! I will go read some Iron Man comics where Tony's suit tries to have noncon sex with him in order to prepare. (to be fair I was going to do that anyway)

I really do think the show would just sort of fall apart without Stiles. Keeps it from taking itself too seriously, and gives it some heart at the same time. Have you seen 2x11 yet? All about Stiles, I swear. SIGH.

I think this is the most sedate I've ever talked about Teen Wolf (in like, the two weeks I've been watching it?), so now I'm going to go and spoil it by going: STIIIIILES. I LOVE HIM AND SCOTT'S NEVER ENDING STUPIDITY AND ALLISON AND LYDIA'S BADASSERY AND DEREK'S PENCHANT FOR EMO-ING IT UP DRESSED ALL IN BLACK IN THE ATMOSPHERIC FOG. Heeee.

I'd been planning on going to see the hobbit movies? And now I am...not so sure. I do not have that huge fannish love for hobbit/lotr that so many geeks have, so now I just don't know if it's WORTH it, since it's going to be stretched into three whole movies....

Teen wolf is a highly communicable disease. Possibly we should be running for the hills or barricading our doors against its spread.

Also, AVENGERS FOUND FAMILY FIC IS THE BEST KIND OF AVENGERS FIC.

DEREK HALE INSIDE THE HOUSE IS WORRYING. I...am still wondering if I will develop the love for Derek that everyone seems to have. Further pestilence to fear?

I am desperately trying to not fall to the Teen Wolf epidemic currently sweeping our internet nation. However, given that I remember the ads for the series premiere and that I thought "ooh, I totally should check that out," I am less than optimistic about my chances of success. D:

ALSO LESS THAN THRILLED ABOUT THREE HOBBIT MOVIES. Ugh, Peter Jackson, what happened to the beautiful synthesis of the LOTR trilogy?

(Eeeee Avengers team fic! I am sorely lacking in these!)

I would just like to register my intense interest in Thor POV Avengers found family fic, because Avengers found family fic is my FAVORITE KIND, obviously.

And now I'm going to scurry away before I catch the Teen Wolf plague from you, because seriously what is with that fandom's epidemic spread?

Teen Wolf fandom was explained to me using werewolf metaphors (it gets one of your friends first, and then you're all NOOOO I DON'T WANT THE BITE but it doesn't matter, you're infected anyway) and it has never stopped being appropriate.

I've recently succumbed to Teen Wolf too, despite my best intentions. It just... sucks you in, doesn't it? And, yes, lots of "STIIIILES" has been going on with me too!
