The Avengers

In which my attempt at writing a review turns into 1,600 words of Avengers feels. With illustrative .gifs and all. Needless to say, SPOILERSCollapse )

Everything is Avengers and nothing hurts

Just came back from the midnight showing. I could have stayed there and watched it all over again.

This movie will make you feel proud to be a comic book fan.

It will also give you massive feelings for every single character in it. And for Joss Whedon too.

I’ll just sit here now and wait until you all see it so we can all flail about it together.

T minus 48 hours and counting

Two days for The Avengers to premiere in my country. Since I've lost most of my ability for coherent thought and I'm not likely to get it back for a while, I've been sticking mostly to tumblr where I can flail incoherently all day long and not be a nuisance to you.

I know I'm kinda lucky and honestly I think it sucks that the movie opens in different places at different times. Don't these people know of this thing called the internet? There should be a worldwide opening. I remember that in 1999 we had to wait six months for Star Wars Episode 1 to premiere over here and it sucked. The wait, I mean. Um, the movie too, but you get my point.

Needless to say, no spoilers over here until well after May 4th.

Avengers Prime

this is the story of how I died

...I'm sure there was interesting stuff in the remaining 59 seconds of trailer. Like, explosions and aliens and what. However, what I got was this:

So,my laptop dies, goes to the tech guys, complete drive failure, needs new drive, all data lost.

I get a new 320GB disk installed, send the old disk to another tech guy the first tech guys know, to run a last chance data recovery.

I get the laptop back this weekend and work on it a couple of times.

Today tech guys call me and say they managed to recover 39GB of data from the old drive. That should be about 90% of the information on it. I mentally high five myself.

Thirty minutes later I get home, start the laptop - and it's stuck on fucking startup repair again. Which does not solve the issue. Safe mode does not solve it. System restore does not work. Memory diagnosis works, says nothing wrong with drive, but still it just won't start.

Now the old drive had Vista, and this new one has Windows 7. I barely had the time to reinstall all software. However, both times this crash happened, it was preceded by an iTunes crash. I am suspicious now. WTF? I have an iPod, an iPhone and an iPad. I can't fucking run my computer life without iTunes. And I can't afford to buy a Mac (or any laptop) right now.

If only I could figure out what the freaking fuck is wrong with the damn thing.

Oh, and my laptop died

Complete disk failure. The first tech guys said they couldn't recover a single bit of information. Am now taking computer to second tech guys for another try. I'll have to buy another disk anyway. And I had about 80% of all my data and files on external drives (so all my music, my videos and most of my fandom stuff are safe), so it's not a catastrophe.

But still. My precious.

that time when I woke up and all my fandoms had merged into one

This is me on finding out today that Benedict Cumberbatch has joined the Star Trek XII cast:



Based on his Sherlock performance, of course, he'd be perfect to play a Vulcan but hey, I'll take anything. Just don't bury him under a ton of prosthetics.

I've been mostly lurking for the past months, reading Steve/Tony like a maniac and fuelling my fandoms through Tumblr. Because reblogging is so damn easy. Today I finally deleted (deactivated?) my Delicious account. I just couldn't deal with the new format, and Pinboard is so simple and straightforward. Of course, I'm now in the middle of a slightly OCD-ish tag reshuffle.

The new job is, well. The best way to describe it is to borrow from Tim Gunn* and say this: now I realize I'd been living in the monkey house. You know the monkey house at the zoo? It stinks, right? But if you stay there long enough, it no longer smells so bad. It no longer smells at all. It's not that it was bad, but it wasn't good either and I had willed myself to ignore the smell, so to say, to an extent that made me nearly numb.

*I confess that I bought Gunn's Golden Rules for the fashion gossip, but the book has surprisingly deep, frank passages. I loved it.

It's so incredible to suddenly be around normal people.

Even my shopping habit is subdued, and I'm sorting out stuff to sell on flea markets and eBay.

And I"m trying to be more creative again, so of course I did what any sane person would do: I signed up for Kink Bingo!Collapse )

[FIC] The Very Secret Diary of Captain Steven G. Rogers in the Twenty First Century

So, that meaningful character study I was planning to write, about Steve’s adjustment to his new absurdly hot body? Still on the backburner. Kink meme fill? Done in two hours. Because if you shake my brain these days, only porn and crack fall out.

This is a fill to the capkink prompt “The new team - Tony, Thor, Clint, Natasha, Banner and Maria - all discover that Steve is still a virgin. They immediately start competing for the honor of "deflowering the National Teasure.”. I wrote it in the style of an, er, homage to cassieclaire 's The Very Secret Diaries of the Fellowship of the Ring (which I recommend to Lord of the Rings fans, appreciators of good humor and pervy hobbit fanciers alike).
