Even though it neverrrrr comes up in game I kind of enjoy coming up with funny stories Sam tells about the shit his asshole (616) friends do. So far my favourite one for Steve is the time he was bored on April 1 one year so he went to the Smithsonian in his uniform to pretend to be a statue for a while until a chance comes up to just casually interject something in a nearby conversation, and for Bucky the time Sam almost died choking on his own laughter in the middle of a fight when some bad guy started sputtering about the Geneva Convention and Bucky deadpanned something like, "Is that one of those anime things?"

Thinking about replacing some of my characters near the end of this month. I foresee charts so I can map ease of activity, fun, strength of relationships, etc.

The other day we had a lady come in to vote who hasn't been on the electoral roll since 1975. That's, like, forty years. (lol I already posted this, that will tell you how tired I've been the last week or so.)

I found an archive of strange comic book storylines and it's glorious. Featuring: Luke Cage goes to Latveria to demand the $200 Dr Doom owes him, Wasp and She-Hulk rate the Avengers men for hunkiness (Jen only gave Sam a 5! If that isn't heresy enough, that's the same score she gave John Walker), Steve rates the Avengers on Avengerability (he doesn't rate Sam very well either but that's because Sam hated being an Avenger, so it's fair), "other vehicles talk smack to Wonder Woman's robot plane", "that time Superman gained the ability to shoot mini-Supermen out of his hands", Matt Murdock's twin brother Mike, and what I was actually looking up which was the original Capwolf.

Deleted scene, Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014):

STEVE ROGERS changing into the uniform he's just stolen from the Smithsonian. It's been on display for years, in storage for decades. It's a little starched into the shape of the mannequin and incredibly musty.

ROGERS: This was a stupid idea.

I can't believe I never realised this before but I'm finally watching Guardians of the Galaxy and Peter made a comment about putting up a blacklight and his ship lighting up like a Jackson Pollock painting.

Which reminded me that birds can see in UV.

Which means that, when Sam looks through their eyes, so can he.

I have to wonder how many times he's just bit his tongue and not said anything even though he really wanted to.

Sometime I really wanna play an AU MCU Winter Falcon Sam who stayed in the Air Force longer coz Riley didn't die and got pulled into an extra classified experimental thing which was secretly run by Hydra where he got brainwashed and also actual wings. Because winged!Sam is my jam.

(I have this whole history sorted in my head where he takes advantage of the chaos in The Winter Soldier to escape and then starts stalking Steve, stealing his food and leaving intel for him. Steve obviously assumes it's Bucky until he almost catches him one day when he's bandaging a wound to hold it til it heals and all he sees is this guy flying away. So then he and Natasha get to hunt down Bucky while also trying to convince this winged asshole to actually talk to them and stop taking Steve's leftovers that he was going to have for dinner, goddamnit. Meanwhile Sam has been getting his personality back but is also a jerk who thinks trolling Steve is hilarious.)

The UK is having a marmite crisis. I'm not saying this because I find it ridiculous. It's not. It's super derivative.

NEW ZEALAND HAD A MARMITE CRISIS FIRST, GUYS. #teammarmageddon

I'm not even kidding, a couple of years ago we ran out of marmite and the entire country freaked the fuck out for months.

It is truly impressive how many times my flatmate's toddler has watched Zootopia in the last week.

Man, I would love a Gabby. So much. Esp because Laura's in sort of this weird place where she's still grouped with "the kids" (though Storm and TJ kind of are too), doesn't have as much responsibility as she does back home, and is a little bit more fragile after Storybrooke etc. And Gabby is awesome.


eta: pairings I have come across while browsing the google image results for 'x-23 fanart':

Laura/Pixie
Laura/Jubilee
Laura/Hope
Laura/Fantomex
Laura/teen!Scott

and platonically:
Laura+Daken
Laura+Logan
Laura+Elektra (???)
Laura+Peter Parker (???)
Laura+Hit-Girl
Laura+Kitty

Which all reminds me the doctor thinks I should start practicing drawing again.

This news article has the most fucking misleadingly boring headline ever. The story itself is an absolute ripper and the headline's just like "guy says he didn't burn down his house". Come on! Nothing about the remote access printer arson theory? Nothing about the blackmail? The toxic waste dumping claims? The IRA scam? It's like they're trying to hide this magic from us.

From Twitter:



New Zealand has some fantastic media talent, especially with movies (some of our tv is a little more mediocre but the movies are brilliant). This is one of the director/producer/writer/actors from What We Do In The Shadows, the truly wonderful vampire mockumentary, who's also directing Thor: Ragnarok.

ALL-NEW WOLVERINE IS BACK!! It's been six weeks, aka FOREVER, but they gave us a hilarious Squirrel Girl crossover so I can't even be mad.

I had this dream the other night that we got a new Jack Harkness at Jaha, BUT his canon point was way pre-Torchwood, like middle of the 20th century when he's reluctantly working for them and waiting for the Doctor. And Ianto was like "For fuck's sake. This is not cool." And trying to keep him out of trouble without spoiling the future too much or accidentally having sex with him.

Turns out a bunch of my fanvids that were on the computer that died are also still on my vidders account. (I think you need a log in to see them so this is partly/mostly a note for me lol.) I have NO IDEA how to download them, but they're there! And some of the old ones are actually not nearly as terrible as I remember.

Never seeing a Steven Spielberg movie again. Not okay, guys. Not okay.



Poor thing. If only it could have had some island park to roam free on instead. :'(

PS Almighty Johnsons on SyFy Friday. Variety has a nice review of the pilot.

lol so when I'm not doing other stuff, and also while I work on some fibre art for this exhibition, I've been watching Pretty Little Liars. It's SO SILLY and I've gotten so many cookies for calling twists before they're revealed. Also in 3.02 Aria has this really adorable grey dress with leather buckles at the straps. It's sort of modern-day steampunk. She should wear it more. (For that matter, wardrobe departments should occasionally give their high school characters the same costume to wear as one they've already worn. Because most high schoolers do not wear everything only once and then chuck them, and we've seen the wardrobes of most of those girls, they're not big enough to store every single different outfit they've worn on screen.)

Randomly, do any panfandoms ever use the private ward convention? I'm so used to HP RP where you can show inner conflicts etc pretty easily that way but in panfandoms I've been in it seems like the only options are narratives or strike outs and sometimes there's things that there is no way a character would type in the first place to then delete unless it was completely private. I do like having Ianto's "secret" easter egg diary though, even if most people have no idea it's there and it doesn't really count ICly.

KTK. I just saw Warehouse 13 3.05 "3 2 1" and Gareth David-Lloyd plays HG Wells' 1890s partner/assistant/something. He wears a suit and everything. Also kicked a gun out of a guy's hand from standing, which is pretty cool, and he ribs HG about seducing all the guys and they've totally had sex.
