I'm a bundle of stress today so when the news broke that Netflix is developing and producing a drama series based on The Witcher I was like, yes! and thank you, and had to resist the urge to roll around the floor in a brief moment of happiness. If anyone can turn the Witcher Saga into the kick-ass tv show it's meant to be, it's Netflix. My hopes, they are high. (And yet the pessimist in me keeps chanting, please don't let them fuck it up. I hate that asshole.)

In related news, [community profile] tv_talk is fab. I haven't had time to participate in the discussions but I really appreciate what they're doing with the place. They just posted handy lists of this year's renewals and cancellations for example.

As far as the cancellations go, I will be forever mad about Sweet/Vicious. I realize that it was a miracle that a show like that even made it on the air, but damn it, the world deserved more than one season of it. I'm also very sad about The Catch's early demise, it was delightful and had an amazing cast.

On the other hand, I'm thrilled that Agents of SHIELD and iZombie made the cut as I was very worried about both. I'm also very happy that we're getting another season of Fresh Off the Boat (it's hard to find comedy that's actually funny/entertaining to me), Into the Badlands (a cinematographic and choreographic masterpiece), Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (weird as hell and just as entertaining), Imposters (Maddie isn't good for anyone but hooboy, girlcrush), and... basically every other show I watch because considering *vague handwave at state of the world* I can use all entertainment that I can get.

I can't believe Timeless was cancelled and then immediately uncancelled. I mean don't get me wrong, Matt Lanter has a very nice face that I enjoy looking at very much so yay, renewal! But what the heck happened there?

I must have broken up with Peter Capaldi's Doctor about five times now. I keep trying because it's Doctor Who and when Doctor Who is good it is the light of my life. Seriously, good Doctor Who brings me so much joy. But Twelve just isn't my Doctor. Ten was, and I really liked Eleven during the Pond era. Despite Moffat being... Moffat, the first time I really lost touch with Eleven was when Clara showed up. That's funny to me now because I really grew to like Clara towards the end, even though I only watched the show sporadically then. Anyway, all this is to say that I had given up on Twelve yet again, skipping the latest specials, but couldn't resist taking a peek at new Companion in action. I'll be honest: after watching the First Look trailer, I thought she would be horribly annoying. But nope, she's great! Really wonderful, actually. Turns out that was just a really, really bad First Look trailer. (I mean, it had Daleks. Daleks are most emphatically Not My Thing.) So for now Twelve and I are on again. Or should I say, Bill and I are on? Either way, I look forward to the next episode. (Note to self: figure out if it's necessary to catch up with the specials to understand what's up with the vault storyline.)

You know what else happened? Legion happened. I caught some buzz on ye olde Twitter timeline and thought hmm, best check that out. You guys, I knew nothing, I was completely unprepared. I didn't even know it was an X-Men show! I mean I got an inkling at the end of the first episode, but by then my mind had already been blown to confused little bits. I stuck with it though, and it didn't get any less weird, but having finished it a couple of days ago, I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. What a bizarre yet awesomely executed piece of TV.

State of the Moonie

I promised you an update and you shall have an update. So, what's been going on with me these past mumblemumble years?

On the personal side, in short: same job, same apartment, still single, but hey, I have a dog now! (I KNOW. I was totally going to go for a couple of purrtastic kitties but I'm a hermit you guys, the last thing I needed was two more reasons to get out of the house even less.) There have also been some health developments, some good, some less so. I think I'll touch on all of that in more detail (and with puppy pictures because she is adorable) under f-lock (what's the right word for that on DW? gosh, I'm rusty). I've always been a little twitchy about posting personal stuff publicly, and at this point I don't think that's ever going to change.

Sort of in-between-ish, I recently got into bulletjournaling, and notebooks, and fountain pens, and different inks, and just, *twirls*. I have always had a thing for all things pen & paper but right now I'm really enjoying the hell out of it. I went from zero to a frankly stupid amount of fountain pens (did you know that you can get a Platinum Preppy for like, $4? damn, son!), and my desk is littered with ink samples. Oops?

Fannishly, things have calmed down a lot for me. I still consume a ton of media (tv shows, mostly) and enjoy chatting about them and occasionally I will brave Tumblr to look at all the pretty gifs and artworks, but I haven't felt like I'm in a fandom in a very long while. I do miss the excitement but I never quite got the hang of Tumblr and so I've been floating around, mostly enjoying whatever fic or artwork my Twitter timeline linked my way.

My fic and book reading have also declined dramatically, and I don't want to point fingers but that's totally mainly the puppy's fault. Who knew dogs ate up so much time, eh? The last book series I read (devoured, more like) was The Raven Cycle and it was so good. The next book I read will probably be a Dresden Files installment, whichever one came out as paperback last. (I always wait for the paperback.)

The puppy is also responsible for the drastic decline in gaming time. Will I ever finish The Witcher 3? I hope so, that game is amazing in so many ways. I need to know how Geralt's story ends, damn it! (ILY Geralt, don't leave me.)

The good thing about TV is that you can consume it while you do chores, and brush your dog's ridiculously high-maintenance fur, so the list of TV shows I watch continues to be way too long: 12 Monkeys, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Emerald City, Fresh Off the Boat, Good Behavior, Imposters, Into The Badlands, iZombie, Killjoys, Lucifer, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Mary Kills People, Orphan Black, Preacher, Powerless, Riverdale, Sense8, Supergirl, Sweet/Vicious, Teen Wolf, The Catch, The Flash, The Librarians, The Magicians, The Originals, This Is Us, Timeless, and Wynonna Earp. Whew!

And then there are the Marvel movies of course. Damn you Marvel movies, you even got me excited for the next Thor. (How fun was that trailer? SO FUN.)

There, now you're all up to date. :)

Hello, world!

Officially moved to Dreamwidth. Odd thing is, I had been out of touch with LJ/DW in so long that I assumed making it official would be nothing but a technicality. And now here I am, updating my interests and my bio and marveling that my reading page is actually active. It's almost giving me old-school fandom vibes? To the point where I want to... post stuff?

I'm a little bit excited, not gonna lie, and plan to ride that wave until it crashes (although my hope is that it won't). As the title suggests, this is just a quick 'hi!'. I plan on catching y'all up on my life and current fannish interests as soon as I get the chance. :)

1) Yes, I am still around. (On Twitter, for the most part.)

2) Due to the newest uproar surrounding LJ (servers moved to Russia, TOS changes) this is now an archival account. If I ever start posting again (and it's not like I don't have a hankering, I just never seem to get around to it), it will be at Dreamwidth.

3) If you want to keep in touch, you're very welcome to add me on either site.

4) It was a wild ride, LJ. RIP.

Looking at my journal one might get the impression that the excitement over Captain America 2 killed me, but nope! I'm shipping all the pairings (so. many. pairings), and reading all the fic (♥AO3♥), and fangirling all the Chris Evans actors, and reblogging all the pretty (when I remember to log into Tumblr anyway). I just do it very, very quietly. I mostly tweet these days (under private lock because it's a mix of fandom and personal stuff).

» games Played Dragon Age: Origins. Played Dragon Age 2. Remembered DA:O included all the DLC, played that. Somehow became obsessed with the universe along the way and am now counting the days until Inquisition. So, that happened. /o\ I also played Deus Ex: Human Revolution which was fun (but I used all the cheats because I'm terrible at stealth and have no patience for dying; you see my problem), and the first Portal which was fun until the last level and then upgraded to awesometacular. Oh, oh! And I played Mass Effect 1 which I really, really liked even though the voice actor of male!Shep was hilariously awful. I already own ME2 and ME3 but since the game mechanics are so similar to those of the Dragon Age games I don't want to burn myself out on that before Inquisition comes out. So I'm playing Far Cry 3 right now. I'm not very far in yet but I'm enjoying it so far.

» books After a fantastic start (six books by February!) I hit a snag. Namely Broken Homes, the third part of the Rivers of London series. I don't know what it is, I just can't get into this one. I loved the first two but this book has been sitting on my reading table for months. I need to finish it before starting a new book (them's the rules) but every time I pick it up I just, put it back down after a few pages. I honestly can't tell if it's actually the book, or me. Augh. Somebody chain me down and force me to finish this so I can move on to that Alex Verus novel I've been eyeing.

» television I'm still very much enjoying Teen Wolf. (My secret: don't expect anything to make sense, seriously, just roll with it; don't do fandom or keep up with show news; and don't get invested in any ships. I'm failing at the last one because Malia/Stiles, oh my heart, but that's okay, the first two are the most vital. I basically want to pinch everyone's cheeks, and is it just me or has Derek somehow become super hot this season?) Defiance was really good this season, bit sad that it's already over. I'm also really liking some new shows, Rush (Tom Ellis has never been more attractive), Dominion, and Finding Carter. And there's a new-new show starting soon that utterly charmed me, Forever. The premise reminds me a lot of New Amsterdam, might be a reboot? Anyway, I'll definitely be tuning in. There's more, Ray Donovan, Suits, Witches of East End, ...oh god, and Sleepy Hollow's starting back up again soon, among others. I have no idea how I'm keeping up with all that, gah.

» comics I'm much happier now that I've given up on all that events business. Who needs 'em, bah. Current titles I'm into include Ms. Marvel (so charming!), Hawkeye (I've been having such a soft spot for Clint lately), Captain Marvel (because Carol Danvers, fyeah), Secret Avengers, Daredevil, Deadpool (sometimes I love it, sometimes not so much, currently a lot because they thew him and Clint together and hilarity ensued), Guardians of the Galaxy, Loki: Agent of Asgard (I was the last person to see this coming but this fresh-faced version of Loki is surprisingly fun), aaand I think that's it. I kinda want to try Avengers World (mostly because Clint is really hot in this one, shh) but I'm worried it will crank my frustration with Avengers titles back up to eleven. I also want to try myself at a Spider-Man title. Last time I tried they replaced Peter two issues in which nope, but I hear he's back now? Spidey always made me chuckle in Avengers books so maaaybe it's time to give that another try.

So there. That's what up with me fannishly. Bit of a mouthful but hey, I updated! That's one off the to-do list. ;)

Yes, I somehow find time to real life in between all that. Ahem.

Livejournal says I last updated today, but Livejournal is a filthy liar. Editing to-do lists and fic wips doesn't count, damn it. No, the sad news is that I last updated in July. How.

Nothing much has happened. I'm still watching too many shows, trying to get into Avengers comics, and continue to fail warming up to Tumblr as the new fannish playground (this is so depressing to me I can't even tell you).

In November I spent a long weekend at the sea. Turns out I love the sea, and fresh, salty air, and drinking hot tea on a cold, windy day at the beach. In short, it was fabulous and I need to spend more vacation time away from home.

Around the same time I tentatively took up gaming. It started with Lego's Marvel Heroes, and then the Steam Autumn sale happened and Bioshock Infinite blew my mind, and then the Steam Winter sale happened and I lost two fun weeks to the new Tomb Raider game. :D I'm still playing Marvel Heroes on and off. It's cute enough but I'm bitter that I did the newbie thing and bought it at full price. I had no idea Steam sales were a thing! I'm also playing Skyrim but while the open world thing is amazing, I also find it a little overwhelming. I think linear games are more my thing, at least for now. Frustratingly I'm not warming up to Assassin's Creed as much as I thought I would and am wondering if I should give up on the first game for now and try the second, see if I like it better. My main problem lies with the controls, honestly. I hope they improved those.

I'm also reading books this year. Last year was very much the year of fanfiction and I don't think I read a single book. Not that I'm putting down the fanfiction (pfft) but I already read six books this year and am enjoying my weekend mornings on the sofa. :)

There's an ongoing fill over at avengerkink that I love to pieces but is getting little to no feedback and it's making me fret, I'm not even joking. So this is me spreading the word. I hope you guys like the story as much as I do, maybe even enough to leave the author some love. :D?

The WIP gets updated pretty regularly and updates normally come in nice big chunks. It's a Clint centric fill, Tony's POV, and gen so far but heavy on Clint&Tony. The author says it might turn into Clint/Tony if it feels right; at this point I'd be happy either way (to my surprise; I normally prefer my fic relationship flavored). I don't want to spoil the story too much but basically Clint is a shapeshifter. Terrible things have happened to him because people found out about his ability so he keeps it a secret. The team finds out and after the initial freak-out Clint slowly learns to embrace that side of him, but then his past comes back to haunt him.

Tony's POV is fun (he has the best one-liners), and there are lots of subtle moments between Clint and Tony that are just really enjoyable. The rest of the team are present and involved, too, which is another thing I adore. It's well-written and slow-building and, just... (Somebody give Clint a hug.)


And can I just say that this kind of WIP encompasses all that I love so much about The Kink Meme Experience (which is one of my favorite fandom things ever)? Finding a WIP that you like, tracking it, flailing in your chair when updates arrive in your inbox and then dropping everything to read them, loving on the anon author. Just, yes. <3

eta; As it turns out the author is also updating the story on AO3 as they write! Genus Panthera by harcourt. :D

First off, those 2D Glasses I mentioned? The postal service must really like me because against all odds mine somehow arrived the day before the movie showing, and I'm in love. As far as I'm concerned I watched a 2D movie, it was great. So if you aren't fond of 3D, or 3D gives you headaches, the glasses are worth a look.

And now, Iron Man 3. :D )

» The surgery went well and after recuperating at the parents' place for a while, I'm heading home tomorrow. My blood results were a bit funky but I feel alright, so hopefully that's just normal post-surgery funkiness and they'll be back to normal when we do another check on the 13th. Especially seeing as I have a plane ticket for the 16th, meep. (But mostly because I'd like my liver to be okay.)

» If I feel well on Wednesday I might go see Iron Man 3. EXCITING. (Downside: it's a 3D showing and my 2D Glasses won't reach me in time.) Now I just need to somehow stay unspoiled until then. Be nice, Tumblr.

» Psych is making me wibbly. 707 onwards. )

» Supernatural is making me flaily. 820 Pac-Man Fever. )

» Everything is Elementary and nothing hurts. That's literally all I got. I'm completely besotted with that show, and this wait for new episodes is torture.

» And now I shall continue getting absolutely nothing done. I had plans! Beautiful plans progressing fannish projects! But this laptop is sucking the productivity right out of me. I just can't seem to establish a workflow that works for me. All I've one for the past two weeks is watch my shows, read some fic, cook meals, and play Candy Crush. :/

For two weeks I kept putting off posting about various things that popped into my head, and now that I've actually sat down to post all I can think of posting is the thing that prompted me to sit down today. Welcome to my brain, it responds to 'swiss cheese' when called.

I signed up to do a thing that requires some non-MCU Avengers knowledge so I thought hey, I'll just read some comics! Ha. Hahahaha. Let's just say acquiring them was the easy part. I sort of decided where to jump in overall (because decades of comics, wat) but beyond that... where do I even start, and in what order, and just. Welp. So, in familiar failboat fashion, I'm procrastinating by reading Deadpool instead. GOLDSTAR.

Someone recced me Cable & Deadpool which was awesome and gave me Bob who is so ridiculous I can't even. Bob<3. I'm now reading the post-C&D volume of Deadpool which I wasn't impressed with initially but I soldiered on regardless. I'm pleased that it's gotten a bit better, and earlier today I got to issue 29 which features Steve Rogers and um, this happened.

'I'll sit on your lap.'* )

STEVE'S LITTLE BLUSH WHEN HE SAYS, "I'LL SIT ON YOUR LAP". I died, oh my god. (Deadpool is referring to his acquisition of the fireworks in the flashback panel but I can't help agree. Cap sitting on his lap? GENIUS.)

And now I'm going to retire to the couch with the tablet and enjoy the rest of my day off. There's an old Big Bang by valtyr that's calling my name.

» Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr spent the day together. They even touched and Chris smiled dopeyly at RDJ and everything. Life is beautiful and nothing hurts—except the lack of RPF in Avengers fandom. Why do you insist on hurting me, fandom, why?

» Have just subscribed to the wrong story on AO3 for the umpteenth time. Can someone please fix that stupid bug? (To recreate: log out. Open story A in one tab, story B in another. Go back to tab A and log in. The logged in page that loads will display story B. If you don't pay attention you subscribe to the wrong story. Which is probably where the "y u sub to completed stories, silly?" confusion comes from.)

» Help, I've fallen into Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and can't get up. There are three episodes left of season one and my only complaint so far: not enough Bruce. I'm just not a Hulk person, I guess. Jan is my favorite, and I want to make sweet love to Tony's voice actor. I'm also really liking Hank but I have the feeling they're about to crank up the drama so I'm prepared to have my heart broken.

Can we talk about a "notify me upon completion" subscription, AO3? I wouldn't have to delete so many useless emails, your servers would probably appreciate the break, happy endings all around! (Pretty please?) (Let's not talk about how I have somehow managed to stop falling into the WIP trap on AO3 while kink meme WIPs still get me every time. Every time. *weeps*)

Suits finale tomorrow. This season has been amazing all around and it's bound to end with a bang. Nngh, gimme. Whatever happens, there had better be a lot of Donna. I have such a crush on that character, oh my god. *hearteyes*

Speaking of finales, I went into this week's episode of Primeval not knowing that that was it for season one, aaah. Spoilersss! ) Primeval and I have a complicated relationship. It gives me so-and-so acting, hit-and-miss writing and cliched directing. Honestly, I'm convinced it's made by newbies who are determined to hit every single pothole imaginable. (I'm too chicken to look that up--what if I'm wrong and these people should know what they're doing! the horror.) But it also gives me dinosaurs, Niall Matter's face, Miranda Frigon's eyes, and the possibility of Colin Ferguson guest starring again. So. There's going to be a second season, right? Don't let me down, Canada!

Snow It snowed a few days ago and then again all day yesterday. Everything is white and beautiful and the birdhouse on my balcony is seeing a lot of action. My love for snow is great and I couldn't be happier.

Merlin I gather one of the creators more or less confirmed Arthur and Merlin's epic gay love for each other by way of DVD commentary? Squee! Not that this makes up for years of heartache, but. That's really very nice. :D

Haven One day I will devote an entire entry to telling you how much I love that show and my OT3 and the cast, and you won't know what hit you for all the squee and capslock. This is my advance apology.

Lost Girl My silly guilty pleasure show is back! Oh Kenzi, how I have missed you. She's adorable to the max. ♥ So far I like the new addition to the cast and even Lauren seems to be growing on me, miracle of miracles.

Fringe RIP, show. I remember how it took me some time to get into at the beginning but I stuck with it and then it got really good. It hasn't quite kept up that level of awesome but Fringe has always been a good time in one way or another, and I'll miss all the characters. I can only hope Anna Torv gets another show because she's gorgeous and I'd miss her face, and smile, and hair, especially when it's dyed red, just saying.

Last Resort I can't even tell you how nervous I am about the finale this week. They canceled this show early on but I have no idea if they got to end things properly or if we're going to be left hanging. All I know is that it's going to be intense either way, meep. My body isn't ready.

Health My health woes are still unresolved and it's getting to me. If you have some good thoughts to spare I'd appreciate it.

To those of you wondering right this moment where the heck I came from, chances are you put your name down at a friending meme recently, maybe even mentioned the Avengers as an interest, in which case I swooped you right up. Hi. :)

I got absolutely nothing done today and am a little desperate for that sweet feeling of accomplishment, so how about some recs? (They've been piling up, and up, and watch out, avalanche!) Alas, still no spoiler cut on DW. I'll try to keep my commentary to a (unspoiler-y) minimum. (Which might be for the best actually, there are a few fics here that make me want to keysmash and bounce in my seat I love them so much.)

Recs: The Avengers

And Has Time Enough by [ profile] wanttobeatree (Steve/Tony. 15684. PG.)
Tony asks if they have met. It's a matter of perspective. (Think "A Time Traveller's Wife" only less creepy. Wonderful execution, one of my very favorites, must. not. keysmash.)

A Fire to be Kindled by [ profile] kepteinen (Steve/Tony. 15685. PG-13.)
It makes perfect sense, of course. The serum gave Steve the perfect body, so why wouldn’t it also give him the perfect mind? In the quietness of his own mind, Tony can admit he’s a little stung Steve didn’t tell him, but he’s not really surprised.

Secrets of a Successful Marriage by [ profile] valtyr (Steve/Tony. 24118. NC-17.)
Tony Stark lives a double life; he's secretly the supervillain known as Iron Man. But his loving husband Steve has a few secrets of his own, as Tony is about to discover. (DELIGHTFUL.)

Someone to Love by [ profile] blue_jack (Steve/Tony. 47162. R.)
I hesitate to c/p the summary because it spoils the big reveal/plot twist in the middle of the story. Which is unfortunate because I love this fic, it hurt so good and was very satisfying emotionally. But oh, that summary. :( So if you feel comfortable going into a story blind, I encourage you to. If you feel safer having read all the notes/warnings, best do that.

you, maybe not essentially you, somebody else by [ profile] dorcas_gustine (Crossover w/The Losers. Jensen/Tony. 10439. R.)
"That's crazy man," he says. "I mean, I get Stark flying around shooting lasers from his hands, he's got a British house after all, but man... Captain America." (I love Jensen. I love Tony. This was basically perfect before it even began. But yes, so much fun.)

flying (just far enough) from the sun by [ profile] isawet (Pepper/Steve/Tony. 20306. Unrated.)
Steve doesn’t stop to really consider the depth of Tony’s character until the dust has both literally and metaphorically settled on the ruins of Stark Tower. (One of my favorite threesomes in this fandom. <3)

A.I.s and Lullabies by [ profile] Echo (Gen. 21687. PG-13.)
Tony is suddenly a quiet, wary five year old boy. The rest of the team are less than completely sure about what to do about that. (This fic, oh my god. I cried, okay? I cried so much, and that rarely ever happens to me when it comes to fic, gah.)

the modern world is awesome and so are you by anon at [ profile] capkink (Steve/Tony. PG.)
For the prompt, When Steve wakes up, SHIELD wants him to spend some time talking to therapists and visit some doctors and acclimate him slowly back into the world in the healthiest manner possible. They're waiting to introduce him to the modern world until they're certain he's stable. Tony thinks it's taking too long and is boring and he just really wants to show Steve all the cool shit he's missed out on. So while wearing his armor, he breaks Steve out and carries him as he flies him around and is basically all I can showww you the world, shining shimmering splendid, etc. Steve is somewhere between terrified and fascinated. Tony eventually returns him, but keeps kidnapping him every couple days or so. They're both surprised by how much they look forward to these little 'dates' each week. (Short and sweet. ♥)

Doubt the Stars by [ profile] someidiothasice (Steve/Tony. 5435. R.)
"Tell Pepper and Rhodey... tell them I couldn't have done it without them. Can you do that for me?" Steve blinked and the feed went clear again. He felt something hot run down his face. "And Steve? What should I tell him?" Clint asked quietly. There was a short intake of breath, but Steve couldn't tell who it was from. "Tell Steve--" Tony's voice got strangled for a moment before he cleared his throat, "nothing. Don't tell him anything. There's nothing I could say that he would want to hear, anyway." (I didn't cry but my eyes definitely burnt, y'all.)

How to Lose a Super Soldier in One Easy Step by [ profile] and_backagain & [ profile] jibrailis (Steve/Tony. 18248. NC-17.)
Rogers jerks backwards, shock registering on his face, and Tony thinks, welcome back to the land of the living, Cap, looks like you're sticking around. Or, a Pushing Daisies AU. (I repeat, Pushing Daisies AU. Yet another keysmash alert, eep.)

Let's get lost in your ferrari by [ profile] attice (Steve/Tony. 5223. NC-17.)
"Show me," Steve says, pressing his hip against the cool metal. "Is it as fast as it looks?" (Car sex. Hot like burning. Yep.)

Late Delivery by [ profile] tsukinofaerii (Steve/Tony. 6909. PG-13.)
When Tony was little, he once wrote a letter to Santa begging for the one thing he wanted most in the world. What Tony didn't know is that Santa always delivers... eventually. (If you know me at all then you know that winter/holiday themed fic is a surefire way to my heart, and this was so.. okay, a little sad but mostly cute and fluffy and happy making. <333)

Perspective by [ profile] Silverlace_Vine (Bruce/Steve/Tony. 40780. NC-17.)
Steve walks in on Tony and Bruce, and it changes everything. (This is me, putting my foot down. There are two moments in this that may want you to back-button. I know this because I almost did, and I've read discussions where others said that's what they did. But seriously you guys, this is a good one. The relationship builds at just the right pace, and the ending is solid, and it's only two paragraphs out of almost 41k that may be a bit backbutton-y. Don't give up!)

Not Quite Method by [ profile] autoschediastic (RPF. RDJ/Tony. 841. R.)
"If I were Christian fucking Bale, or Jesus Christ help me, Clooney in the nipple suit, gearing up to play Bruce fictional fucking Wayne, he'd send me a fucking fictional helicopter." (No, you don't understand. Robert Downey Jr. Slash. Tony Stark. I just. I love fandom. ;_;)

And that's not even half of my "to rec" list but I ran out of time. I also have some Teen Wolf and Merlin and um, The Losers and stuff? But, next time. Have a good one, flist!
