I am tired and when I'm tired I write about sleepy people this makes A+ sense.

I am trying to think of a concise way to sum up why Raven and Charles are WORST FRIENDS without going Bad Timeline, is why Raven is not mentioned, but she is ALSO on the list of Why Charles Can't Pick His Own Friends.

Hey guys, I fixed up that Uncharted ficbit from the other day while I'm on a tear with myself. I feel like I've done a lot of things! Even if jerkbrain is telling me that none of these things matter!

(Today I:

  1. Typed up my notes from an evening of lesbian pulp fiction I went to.

  2. Wrote up the Sidetracks and Fanwork Recs for the next couple of weeks.

  3. Wrote up the We Want It! posts for the next couple of months.

  4. Posted two ficbits to AO3.

  5. Typed up my Adventures Elsewhere post for the end of the month.


... But because I didn't make hap'worth of progress on the two long fic I want to work on, and haven't started today's ficbit yet, my brain has determined that I am a failure in this and all thing. Fuck YOU brain.)

Behind the cut: the lead-in to Loki pretending to be Enchantress, because I like this idea.

The trouble with writing any fic involving Enchantress is that I'm kinda... It's a bit... Mind-whammying someone because you're bored isn't my jam. And trying to work out the effects that would have on life in the academy is difficult when your view of it is in so many bits and pieces? I dunno. Also writing this is just making me want Loki-the-shapechanger switching gender at will.

Also I'm getting REALLY SALTY at myself for this super great trend I've got going where I have two male characters discussing a female one. What. Why brain. Why not just have the female character.

Avengers Academy // Why not you
G | 303 words | Sam Wilson, Loki; Enchantress mentioned | No spoilers | He'd never noticed her trying it against Loki.

Sam dusted the noxious green powder off his jacket.Collapse )

Jay and I decided to watch two X-Men movies as prep for X-Men apocalypse, because they are SUPER HET and also Jay's not seen either of them! And obviously

X-Men: First Class

X-Men: Days of Future Past

IN CONCLUSION: I ain't even gonna pretend that I'm not watching this franchise for the queerbaiting, because I absolutely am, I just have a habit of letting the queerbaiting convince me that the films are better than they are. ... I am still really invested in Erik and Charles and Raven though SO I GUESS I'M STILL READING ALL OF THE TERRIBLE FIC THEN. I GUESS THIS IS MY LIFE NOW.

RIGHT, there's a new X-Men movie on the 18th and I won't be able to buy Uncharted 4 until the 25th, so what I'm saying is that I need to finish ALL OF THE FIC for these fandoms before those two dates. It's not gonna happen.

Uncharted // Life Insurance
G | 247 words | Nathan Drake, Elena Fisher | No spoilers | Nate has already signed everything over to Sully.

But anyway, here"s Nate making poor life choices.Collapse )

This was inspired by the fact that Cap showed up for the Civil War event before I had EVEN UNLOCKED HIM. He just needed to yell at Tony that badly.

Avengers Academy // Getting Ahead of Yourself
G | 362 words | Sam, Natasha; Tony and Steve mentioned | No real spoilers, does mention the Civil War event | Tony arguing with Captain America wasn't the problem; Tony would argue with a brick wall if he had to.

The official announcement has gone up, my twitter feed is a beautiful meltdown of excited screaming (and that's just my friends, don't get started on my feed), so now I can ACTUALLY SHARE THIS NEWS:

LADY BUSINESS IS UP FOR A HUGO!

THAT BLOG I WRITE FOR.

UP FOR A HUGO.

I am so stoked, you don't even know, like, "squeaked so loudly that an entire pub turned to look at me" "hard to track twitter and write this post because all I want to do is vibrate with excitement because GUYS WE ARE UP FOR A HUGO"! My mum is also the most stoked I have ever seen her, my twitter feed exploded, Slack was full of nothing but screaming -- guys, I am crying. ;_;

1) I agree entirely with that post on [profile] feministponies, I think it's a good summary of why this is a weird year to be a finalist, but also WE ARE REALLY PROUD TO BE THERE.</a>
2) PEOPLE LIKE US. LIKE. HOLY SHIT, PEOPLE LIKE US ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY VOTE FOR US. Thank you amazing internet people!
3) LOOK AT MY AMAZING FRIENDS HAVING THEIR GENIUS RECOGNISED, LOOK AT THEM! *basks*
4) Look at how many ladies and genderqueer people and queers are suddenly on this list, that is fucking MAGICAL.
5) I realised a thing the other day and cried for like half an hour, but -- I made my peace last year with the fact that I would never know what my dad would think of any of my life choices or my accomplishments, but THIS. THIS</em> I know without a shadow of a doubt he would be proud of, and that means more to me that I can explain?
6) I really really need to up my game because I feel like I've been given my dessert before I've earned it, and the only way to solve this is to write like I'm running out of time. >) *gets back to work on the like six posts I've had on the go for months*

BASICALLY I AM PROUD OF EVERYONE AT LADY BUSINESS, BECAUSE LOOK AT WHERE WE ARE

LOOK AT WHERE WE STARTED

THE FACT THAT WE'RE ALIVE IS A -- No, wait.

(I LOVE EVERYONE, OH MY GOD, LOOK AT THIS AMAZING TEAM, LOOK AT IT, AND ADMIRE THE FUCK OUT OF IT BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I'M DOING!)

References to events of Uncharted 3, but no actual spoilers, set pre-games. PS I need someone who is a better person than me to right Nate And Sully's Epic Adventures when they were just finding their feet. I assume [archiveofourown.org profile] rhiannon87 is the person to go to for that? Or maybe [personal profile] rionaleonhart? But I've not found it yet.

Hey everyone! Last Wednesday I went to see a triple bill of all of the Captain America movies that ended with a midnight showing of Civil War, and I have Opinions! The Sparkle Rocket team have been asking nicely if people not even give them a "I liked it!" or "I didn't like it!" because they want to go in cold (or at least that was the impression I got? Apologies if I'm misrepresenting that), so I've been keeping my public access opinions to variations on "*INTENSE SCREAMING*" because that's fairly neutral! But also I need to vent, so GUYS BEHIND THE CUT IS NOTHING BUT SPOILERS, SCREAMING, AND AN OLD-SCHOOL REACTION SHOT THE LIKES OF WHICH I HAVEN’T ATTEMPTED IN YEARS. PROBABLY WITH BONUS FIC LINKS BECAUSE I AM A BENEVOLENT... No, no I'm not, let's not finish that.

(For those who are new to this game: reaction shots are essentially how I used to livetweet before twitter was a thing. It is going to be a long bullet point list, hope y'all like those. Also, this is based entirely on my spotty memory, so I may have to do a follow-up post when I go and see it again next week?)

... So yeah, MASSIVE SPOILERS FROM HERE ON OUT, ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK.

I swear to fuck I wasn"t kidding, turn back all ye who don"t want spoilers, THIS MEANS YOU RENAY.Collapse )
