Posting too much today because I love to share: things I notice in fanvids edition.

In Bucky's flashbacks, HYDRA seems to be amputating his arm a couple of inches above the elbow. It's hard to tell because he's looking down at his body, but it's definitely towards that end of his upper arm. When they're dragging him through the snow the fall itself seems to have taken off most of his lower arm somewhere around the elbow joint. A lot of fic I've read written post Winter Soldier and pre Civil War, if it goes into detail at all, seems to assume that the prosthetic is anchored on the remains of his upper arm, including the bone. That would make a lot of sense if you were attaching a metal arm to someone, after all.

After he and Steve fight Tony at the end of Civil War though, Bucky's arm has been ripped off at the shoulder.

I really, really hope that through the years that metal arm put too much stress on his original upper arm and they'd done further surgery to just anchor it at the shoulder or something, knowing that they wouldn't be keeping him around for that much longer anyway. Because otherwise it would seem that Tony may have removed not just most of his prosthetic, but the remaining pieces of his actual arm.

You're welcome for this very cheerful observation. Someone should write a fic where Tony's like "hey I can see how this arm works now OH SHIT THAT'S NOT METAL."

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.

Mental image where Sam and Bucky watch Leverage together because it's the only time they really get on. Steve joins them for one ep where Hardison and Spencer are being really homoerotic and starts teasing them about watching tv about themselves because he's a troll. So Bucky starts asking if that makes him Parker and Sam does the totally straight faced "dude, that's so racist, you can't make me Hardison just because I'm black" thing.


Then Bucky's like "....well you are a massive dork" and they get distracted squabbling while Steve just sits there really entertained.


edit: after discussing this with my sister, we offer the following correction:

Sam is Hardison
Bucky is Spencer
Natasha is Parker
Tony is Nate
Steve is Nate's ex Maggie

She also says that the Hulk is Sophie. Not Bruce, the Hulk.

The new All-New X-Men features Bobby going to a gay club, it's super cute. I also found the All-New Wolverine Annual in which Wolverine and Spider-Gwen switch bodies and oh my god. (I'm not sure why Laura has such trouble with Gwen's spider-strength though. She's canonically supposed to be super strong herself. I guess they're just... slightly different amounts of super strong?) I'm almost tempted to canon update Laura again but I did that like two months ago so it can really, really wait. Memories of being a Spider-Gwen are not that important.

Also I watched like all of season two Dark Matter that's out so far (I think there's only one more episode which is airing in a couple more days) and we found out Five's name and age and there's been so much character development and it's all tremendously exciting. Three and Five even had a whole episode where they bonded together it was fucking adorable. She also made a very dramatic entrance at one point.



"We've caught all of them except the girl. But she's of little consequence." Ha.

Also I updated my character page and figured out what to do with having two games on there and made it really pretty.

I'm watching Stranger Things. My Laura muse is just like "no no no no nope nope". I feel like she'd want to stop watching but then keep turning it back on to find out if Eleven is okay. :/

That super tall tower in Polis is probably actually pretty miserable to live in. No glass in the windows, some of the other wall gone, that high above ground... can you say wind chill factor??


One day I will play an AU Maya who killed Daredevil before finding out he was Matt and never figured out that Fisk killed her father and is now technically a bad guy (who thinks she's a good guy).

John Locke: the original Thelonius Jaha. (Er, the one from Lost, not the philosopher.)


Thank you to the people who replied to my last post. I'm feeling better now after a weekend of sedatives and video games and huddling under blankets.

lol this dork #izombie #gay

Luna's fucking badass.



Also seriously I want a Monty and/or Jasper in Jaha. Jasper would sadly be lacking some of the major character development from season three but he still doesn't have to be a complete emotional wreck.

Teen Wolf spoilers - season five finale, season six casting )

WHY IS IT SNOW WHITE'S JOB TO FEND OFF A GROUP OF BANDITS LITERALLY BY HERSELF? SHE'S LIKE 15 AND SHE'S THE ONLY HEIR TO THE THRONE. DO THEY NOT HAVE A SINGLE GUARD OR SOLDIER? DO NONE OF THE PEASANTS NOTICE HOW WIMPY THE BANDITS ARE AND REALISE THERE'S AT LEAST TWICE AS MANY OF THEM IN A SINGLE VILLAGE AS THERE ARE BANDITS? SNOW BEAT THEM BY STANDING THREE FEET AWAY AND AIMING AN ARROW AT ONE OF THEM. THAT DUDE COULD HAVE GRABBED THE BOW OUT OF HER HAND BEFORE SHE EVEN SHOT HIM. IF THEY'RE GOING TO OBEDIENTLY LEAVE THE KINGDOM BECAUSE A FIFTEENISH YEAR OLD GIRL THREATENED TO DISARM THEM WITH AN ARROW I GUARANTEE THE PEASANTS COULD HAVE GOTTEN RID OF THE BANDITS THEMSELVES.



No, no, I'm fine, don't mind me. (And yeah I realise Regina probably wanted her to fail but that doesn't explain any of the rest.)

Catching up on Once Upon a Time. Mulan turned up, reminded me how adorable she is, and OH MY GOD I MISS MULAN/AURORA. Fuck I loved them.

(Partly from the fanfic turning up in Jaha and partly out of curiosity I've been looking at my fandoms on AO3 and good lord when did fanfic in general become overrun by modern setting/real world/high school AUs? It's so common in basically all my fandoms and I don't really remember it being like that before. Where 'before' = pre 2008 because I've been reading and writing fic since the 90s lol oh god I'm getting old.)


Also kind of enjoying Maya having a bit of an insecure freakout. She's actually the character closest to me in age even though some of the younger ones have their lives way more together than I do. Or at least they're better at faking it than me. (Ianto.)

Do I want a normal Grounder like Dela (maybe a boy!?) or do I want to attempt to play Indra? idk if I could do her justice.


Finished rewatching season two anyway and now rewatching the start of season three. Octavia just suggested they leave and Luna would take them in and Lincoln's like "She's hiding for a reason, she won't want the attention." Ha, foreshadowing.

(PS who kills themselves by shooting wildly at their chest without aiming properly? Bunker guy, apparently.)

spoilers for recent The 100 )

I was thinking that the Teen Wolf finale was really unmemorable, then I realised I hadn't actually watched it yet. So.

Anyway I'm thinking of canon updating Kira and possibly including a couple extra months when she's hanging out with skinwalkers, trying to decide if there's any neat stuff she could plausibly learn considering she's still pretty young. (Like, they're not going to be teaching her to turn into a fox in two months, for eg.) I suspect they'd likely teach her to hide her aura as well as, obviously, balancing her fox side.

Finished the main Percy Jackson series, going to start on Heroes of Olympus next.

Characters I might like to play currently stands:
Bianca di Angelo
Selina Beauregard
Zoe Nightshade
Thalia Grace

I have been really blah on tv this week with the finale of Teen Wolf and what happened on The 100 last week. I should probably watch the new ep anyway but I'm still all "f uuuuuuuu".

Still have about half my TVTropes memes to write but I've put the completed ones in my CDJ and updated my character roster.

I finally got around to watching the end of Lost Girl, having been warned that it kind of sucks, and it's true, it kind of sucks. It also has a lot of information on Valkyrie reproduction that... doesn't make any sense at all.

spoilers, I guess, and also stuff what goes wrong during pregnancy )

I found an extension that would download embedded vids off Vidders.net for me so now I for real have them online! All the stuff from Vidders downloaded as a .flv and the video quality is not ideal, but they're watchable. There's also a couple in .mp4 format that I'd had on YouTube. I'm putting a ** next to the ones that I, personally, quite especially like.

So if anyone is interested:

things I have made )

Jan. 2nd, 2016

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.
