I'm just slowly pootling through comments over here. I fully expect [personal profile] renay to show up at the last possible minute just holding a sign saying "STEVE/TONY FOREVER" though.

I don't even know where to start, I don't WANT to start. Leave me prompts (y'all know my fandoms, if you don't then give us a shout) and I'm going to try to write happy fic for us. That sound like a plan?

Okay, this has been bugging me since I first saw Warcraft: The Beginning. Orcs are sexually dimorphic, right? Female orcs are, as far as I could see, slightly smaller than male orcs (but still buff as fuck, and I respect the animators for that), and have needle tusks. (Compare Draka to her husband.)

Now, Garona says that the tusk she's wearing is her mother's, but that tusk is HUGE compared to the other female orcs'! Are orcs not as dimorphic as I thought? Did her mother just have unusually large tusks? Did Goldan give her a random tusk and some randomer has been watching over her all this time? ... I'm up for that, ngl, I would just like to know whether I'm going mad or not.

(I COULD have gone full Icarus with this but it didn't occur to me until like 1:51 in the morning so NO, NO MYTHOLOGICAL ALLUSIONS FOR YOU, I WILL SAVE THAT TITLE FOR ANOTHER DAY, because I feel like "Some live like Icarus" could be a good Tony Stark story if I was any good at Tony fucking Stark.)

So, anyway, [personal profile] renay left me a comment saying "YOU COULD WRITE THEM WATCHING A SUNSET IN SILENCE AND I'D PROBABLY LIKE IT" about that Steve/Tony fic I wrote for her yesterday and it was like 7:00am so I was like "OH REALLY?!" and, well. What do we have here.

YOUR MOVE, SIR.

YOUR. MOVE.

Avengers Academy // As I Fall I Feel
G | 480 words | Tony Stark, Steve Rogers | No spoilers, set during the early days of the academy? | Nothing makes you appreciate a beautiful evening like destroying Hydra.

It was probably the most beautiful sunset he"d ever seen.Collapse )

The file name for this was "Tony flirts badly with Steve" and I feel like that is a pretty accurate summary of what is going on here. But I promised [personal profile] renay Steve/Tony fic (even though not my ship and hahahahahahahaha when was the last time I wrote kissing fic?) AND BY GOD THERE WILL BE KISSING FIC. REGARDLESS OF QUALITY.

Avengers Academy // I Wanna Wear You Like a Suit
G | 953 words | Steve Rogers/Tony Stark | Super vague spoilers for a couple of missions in the Civil War event | Pulling pigtails was old back when Steve was a kid.

Steve was supposed to be catching up on recent history, Fury"s orders.Collapse )

I AM NOT SAYING that getting a cinema card was the most financially responsible decision I've made in a while, I'm just saying that I saw six movies last month for less than twenty pounds and this is magic.

(OKAY two of those were imax, but that's still only another fiver each? Which is so much better than the FIFTEEN POUNDS EACH they usually charge. )

Plus I found out that my local cinema does subtitled screenings of movies, and now that I know this I might have to go through and find EVERY SUBTITLED SHOWING THEY DO, because it is so greeeeeeat!

Yesterday I went swimming for the first time in like five years! I only did twenty-five lengths, which I was quite disappointed with but which my friends are telling me is FINE, so ???

([profile] jilliferium: Your expectatations are unrealistic and you should feel bad.
Me: It is a day ending in y, bears are catholic, and the pope shits in the woods.)

But yes, swimming. Lex is trying to be healthy, which is good! And I am like "uuuuuuuuuuuuuugh" about diets and eating healthily, so my contribution to this effort is being like "and now we swim" because swimming is good for me? Maybe? I feel Very Aware of my knees, but that's mainly because hahahaha I am so bad at breaststroke. And it turns out that if I get up before 8:00 even when I have a morning off, I am actually capable of DOING THINGS during the day before I go to work, WHO FUCKING KNEW.

I dunno. I made a deal with myself that I would go swimming at least 24 times, because that's once for each pound the swimsuits cost me, and then I will evaluate how I feel after that.

(I'd be more enthusiastic, but LANE SWIMMING IS THE MOST BORING THING ON EARTH, EVEN MORE SO IF YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN AND IT'S 8:30 IN THE MORNING SO YOU'RE FILLED WITH BEES AND HATRED. But also I am in a state where it's like "This body is grooooooooooooooooss!" whenever I'm near a mirror, so taking steps!)

ALSO I need to get used to wearing swimsuits that were designed for women of my girth, but not necessarily my... Proportions, because I am constantly worrying about the damn thing getting dragged down and flashing my boobs at the pool.

I still remember how to do the twisty-rolls at the end of the lane to launch you into the next lap and I am super pleased with this knowledge. :D

WELL THAT SURE WAS A FILM I ACCIDENTALLY SAW TWICE IN ONE DAY BECAUSE MIDNIGHT SHOWINGS CONFUSE ME. I literally have no idea whether I loved it or hated it because the further I get away from it the more hilarious and the more heartbreaking I find it, and it's hard to say whether that was because it was 3am when I got out of the first time I saw it or what.

The best review I've heard has been "Well it's better than The Last Stand," which is kinda... It felt like it rubbed The Last Stand and X-Men Origins together and put the cast of First Class and Days of Future Past in a bag with it? Which ain't necessarily a bad thing, but it's certainly a thing. Plus, it was actually... Surprisingly more het than I expected!

ANYWAY: OPINIONS! #SUPERHETCollapse )

When I saw this movie on my own (we're up to three times by this point, what is my life, I'm going home.), I did end up attempting to take notes due to a conversation with Ms [personal profile] owlmoose where she mentioned that she assumed that's what I did. (I don't! I just do the watching it in my brain thing and then snark aggressively at what I remember.) It turns out that this is actually doable! But it means that I'm paying a little less attention to the movie, and I seriously need to invest in a plain exercise book if I'm gonna do that on the regular. I might save that for viewings of movies I do just to better reaction shot them.

As ever, shout out to [twitter.com profile] hardlyaverage for being my midnight showing buddy! Next time, you should probably pick the movie.

Semi-regular customer comes in wearing a big fuzzy grey hat with a cat face on it.
Me: I like your hat!
Him: Don't call him a hat, he doesn't like it!
Me: *laughs*
Him: He's not a hat, he's an alien brain parasite called Wilbert Grim.

1) I was going to write today, and there was going to be completed Avengers Academy shenanigans, and I was going to be so proud of my me. Then today sucked donkey balls (let's start with "alarm didn't go off so I woke up an hour late" and end with "and then Lex decided not to pick up any food for me when buying food for himself" and just point judgementally at FUCKING MARVEL) and now I am tired and sad.
2) Talking to [personal profile] justira in slack like "I wrote a tiny amount of baby Natasha and then I realised this was going to have to end with knives and decided to stop" because that's not what I feel like right now. Or
3) I am going to bed early because hi, my name is Susan, I am tired and sad and I don't know how to feel better right now.
