HELA IS SUCH A BADASS and her headress looks great! Valkyrie also looks really good. I am excite.


I'm pretty sure I've made a decision about my LJ account; giving myself one more day to make sure.


I think I'm going to make a comm for ship/fandom manifestos (on DW).

dhampyresa: (SCIENCE SMASH)
Thank you for writing for me! I'm sure whatever you write me will be wonderful.

Feel free to poke around this journal or my Ao3 account (username: sevenofspade) if you want to. My letters tag is here.

I have six Do Not Wants: allegory/metaphor of real world politics, incest, rape, child abuse, character death and dysphoria. When these are canon, please don't focus on them. I would also prefer not to have to deal with people losing things important to them and toxic living arrangements, be that family or roomates. Thank you.

On the other hand, there are a lot of things I do want. Here’s a partial list. (I obviously don’t expect you to stick all of these in one story, that would be impossible.)

General likes )

Feel free to take prompts in whichever direction you like! And if none of my prompts work for you, then write whatever you want -- I'll be happy with anything.


Demigods Series - Rick Riordan
  • Characters: Luke Castellan, Rachel Elizabeth Dare
  • Worldbuilding: Children of Hecate and the Titan War, Oracle of Delphi (Demigods Series), Possession by a Titan

I feel like there are the pretty obvious pairings of Luke + Possession and Rachel + Oracle, but the reverse on those could also be interesting, either in canon (Luke & his mother the Oracle, Rachel and hitting Titans in the face) or in a role-reversal AU. Children of Hecate could go either way with being with Luke or Rachel. And of course I am always up for Rachel & Luke (or Rachel/Luke, why not) shenanigans.


Marvel Cinematic Universe
  • Characters: Wanda Maximoff
  • Worldbuilding: Relationship between magic and science
Over in the Thor movies the MCU took great pains to make magic super-advanced science. But then there's Wanda. If you want to explore this via interaction between Wanda and Thor, that'd be cool, but I would also love Wanda + Tony or Wanda solo vs Science. (Fyi, I haven't seen Doctor Strange.)


Marvel Secret Wars Battleworlds
  • Characters: Valeria - Head of the Foundation, God Emperor Doom
  • Worldbuilding: the building of Battleworld, effects of Doom being omnipotent but not omniscient, role of the Foundation, the Thors & their hammers & Doomgard
FUCK YEAH BATTLEWORLD! I love Battleworld. No lie, Secret Wars was my favourite event in ages. It gave excellent Doom and Valeria. And the worldbuilding potential was fascinating. Feel free to bring in other characters from the comics (including non-nominated ones, like Wanda Maximoff or Goddess of Stories Loki or Cassandra Lang) if you want.


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
  • Characters: Chirrut Îmwe, Jyn Erso, Mon Mothma
  • Worldbuilding: Rebel Alliance High Command, politics of the Rebel Alliance, the Whills, the Guardians of the Whills, Mon Mothma's role in the Rebellion, Jyn's crystal pendant, Data storage, Holidays of a Galaxy Far Far Away
There's obviously overlap between a lot of the Rebellion prompts, but whatever, I am here for punching the Empire in the face. Or Empire-punchers taking a breather and having themselves a nice holiday -- possibly having cocktails on a beach. I am super curious about the Whills and their Guardians. What are they? What's the relationship between the two? Also, was that harddrive the plans were on old school or what?


Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) - All Media Types
  • Characters: Riyo Chuchi, CT-7567 | Rex, Bo-Katan Kryze
  • Worldbuilding: Legal Status of Clones, Pantoran Culture, Mission in the clones' dreams, Maul's rule of Mandalore, in-universe fandom and RPF
I don't understand how the Jedi can (a) think they're the good guys and (b) say there's no slavery in the Republic when they're literally fighting this war with an army of enslaved child soldiers. Like. WTF? Also, that dream mission Fives as he's dying, what is that? I'm kind of sad we never got to see Maul on Mandalore, especially Maul vs Mandalore. I'm super curious about Pantoran culture -- like, what do those tatoos mean? And in-universe fandom is my favourite thing.


Stargate Atlantis
  • Characters: Todd
  • Worldbuilding: Wraith culture, Wraith and the Iratus bug, First Wraith against Atlantis War
I just want to know everything about the Wraith, okay? ALL THE THINGS. Also, I loved loved loved that bit in Last Man where Ronon and Todd (briefly) work together and sacrifice themselves for the same cause, so anything with a Todd + Ronon team-up would be aces. I also love Todd and Teyla's relationship, as well as his relationship with John.


Voltron: Legendary Defender
  • Characters: Haggar
  • Worldbuilding: Galra Empire, Blade of Marmora, Alteans
Haggar is the space witch/mad scientist mash-up of my heart. I want to know everything about her and the world she lives in -- who are her assistants? Why don't they have faces? Is she really Altean? What does that mean to her? Can she get the slipperies? Is she Keith's mom? Do I ship her with Pidge? Yes. They could bond over mad science, it'd be cute/horrifying. I would also love to see her relationship with Shiro and/or Allura explored.


Thank you again so much for writing for me!

READING

What did you finish reading

2015

Sandman Overture by Neil Gaiman (scenario) and J. H. Williams III (art): Well, that is certainly a published comic book. I wanted to like this a lot more than I ended up actually liking it.

I didn't care for meeting the Endless' parents -- yeah, that's a thing now apparently. /does standard comics thing of "only canon that matters is canon I like"

The plot was pretty eh, overall, I have to say. Tbh, I always considered what happened immediately before Sandman to be best left unexplained, because any explanation was (a) not needed and (b) unlikely to live up. As it turns out, I was bright on both counts. I did like the call forward with "Hope", though.

The art is very pretty. Unfortunately, sometimes it's very pretty at the expanse of legibility.

So all in all, it's okay and made disappointing by the fact that I expected better.


Stuff I read and didn't talk about )

WATCHING

Star Wars Rebels: S03E05:
THE LAST BATTLE OF THE CLONE WARS! Clone Trooper Captain Rex vs Super Tactical Droid Kalani, winner takes all.

SO I SHIP REX/KALANI NOW SORRY NOT SORRY the "old enemies who find common ground and respect each other" dynamic just hit me where I live, okay?

I am having ALL OF THE CLONE FEELINGS, seriously. Cody*! "Clone Order 66"! "A good soldier follows orders", Rex, noooooooooooooo!

I am so glad Rex didn't die. SO GLAD.

It may have been my monitor, or the lighting or whatever -- and I fully expect to be Jossed by the next episode -- but Sabine's hair looked blue and white to me in this ep and I'm going to headcanon it was because she dyed it that way to honour Rex (and if it's back to pink-ish newt ep, I may have to write fic about the fallout of Agamar, re: Rex).

* I cannot believe when the preview came out I thought "Oh hey they got Cody's voice actor back just for this scene, that's sweet". Self, Cody and Rex have THE SAME VOICE ACTOR.


Lucifer: S02E03, S02E04 and S02E05: I can't quite remember what happened when, so you get three for the price of one. I continue to enjoy this ridiculous show greatly. Character interactions are gold and I love how many of the characters are women (Dr Linda, Maze, Chloe, Ella, Mum, Trixie). Dr Linda was a phone sex operator, omg and then there was a bar fight. Lucifer and Dan geeking out over action movies were cute. I grow impatient about getting to see CHLOE AND MAZE ROOMATES HIJINKS. I'm kind of sad Uriel is gone already, for some reason I tend to like Uriel best in ~classic angelology~ and his power here was pretty cool. I do like that we got canon confirmation that angels can be female (Azrael/the angel of death is "she"). Faced with the lack of non-binary/ungendered angels, I'll take 'angels can be male or female, it's whatever'. Also, Tom Ellis does Righteous Fury really well.


Legends of Tomorrow: S2E02: Are we done with the Nazis yet? Like. Seriously. I know Timetravel To WW2 is a well-used trope, but are we done yet? One episode is pretty the price I agree to pay when I get into a timetravel show, twice is trying my patience. At least Sara leading the crew is now oofficial.


Class: S01E01 and S01E02: Well, that was unexpectedly violent. I thought this would be a kid's show! (I did not follow the promos at all.) And yet I was really charmed by all the characters, from super-smart Tanya to Ms Quill the freedom-fighter-turned-reluctant-teacher/bodyguard to April whose bravery comes from kindness.


Luke Cage: S1E07: No progress.


Nirvana in Fire: E06: Have made no progress.


Miraculous Ladybug: S01E02: This show gives REALLY GOOD PARIS, I have to say. To the point that, despite the fact that I was watching the English dib (my search for the Korean dub remains fruitless), I ended up thinking "Genre la meuf va au Troca pour trouver un pigeon. Genre!" ("Like the girl goes to the Trocadéro to find a pigeon. As if!") in French, which usually never happens -- I certainly didn't think in French while watching Legends of Tomorrow, even though it was nominally set in Paris this week. So ML gives great Paris, including aaaaaaaaaaaall the subtle social clues. Yikes. I think I went to school with some of those people. Adrien's social clues are unambiguous, but Marinette's are more confused. Then again, I'm only two episodes in.

This fic was almost about one of Anakin's illegal podracing buddies wondering wtf had happened to him -- but I didn't want her to know he was a Jedi and couldn't figure out how to make that work. So instead I took the basic concept of "bystander gets caught up in onscreen events and investigates what happened to a friend", Suoé became Alina and I wrote this. I may still keep the concept of "Star Wars fic in which everything is going great until, unfortunately Palpatine/Order 66 happens" or I may not.

Demon Knights actually one of the few Anglophone canons that has a proper Merlin and the fact that he's canonically demonspawn and ages backwards in it is part of why. The bit about him not having a soul now that he's under seven is based on a sort of obscure bit of French folklore than holds the seventh birthday as when children acquire a soul.

SOMEONE ELSE WROTE ME WANDA FINDING HERSELF (with a side order of Wanda/Natasha)



I'm watching Fort Boyard.

Like every time I want worldbuilding. It is such a fascinating thing to contemplate worldbuilding for, though! I think I liked it a bit better when there was less worldbuilding on the show, just "here are some immortal tiger headed people with really weird challenges WHO NEVER SPEAK" and what not. (Oh, hey, I could nominate it for yuletide. Note to self: nominate Maîtres des ténèbres, Félindra, Blanche and Rouge in "Fort Boyard" for yuletide.)

Also, I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when the idea for the show got pitched. "Let's refurbish a 19th century sea prison by turning each cell into a gameshow challenge, have candidates collect actual gold coins and do acrobatics in mid-air over live tigers. The tigers are not negotiable."



I edited the post I made about my Great Britain trip this August. (Short version: car no, England yes, still looking for recs.) Basically, I am learning that I know fuck-all about planning month-long trips on my own*. It's starting to take some sort of reasonable form? Maybe? Sort of?

Anyway. Anyone in Great Britain during august want to have a meet-up?


* Look, I can barely manage to motivate myself to go to the Louvre tomorrow, because I haveto go before the crowds and that means waking up early. I want to see the exhibit, but I don't wanna wake up, I am so tired lately. (I'm doing some stuff that takes a lot of time -- I get home ~9PM if I'm lucky --  plus there are emotional upheavals, it's fun times.) I don't wanna anwser that PM even though I should, I don't wanna go the Louvre even though I know I'll love it, I just wanna sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep forever but I cannot. :(

dhampyresa: (Natasha and red)
Guess what movie I saw? Yup, it was Captain America: Civil War.

I greatly enjoyed it but WOW IT WAS INTENSE.

I saw it with a group of friends and on either side of me were a Steve/Bucky shipper and a Steve/Tony shipper, which was an interesting experience. They each walked out of the cinema with a new appreciation for each other's ship. I walked out SHIPPING ALL THE THINGS as I pretty much always do.

There is literally no ship in this movie I would be down with. Like, you know how the poster that has the team lined up on both sides starts with line-ups that make sense as ships (Steve/Tony, Nat/Sam) and get progressively more nonsensical (Wanda/Rhodey, Vision/Bucky, Clint/T'Challa)? I would read fic for every single one of those.

If there are any questions about spoilers or things you want to know or whatever, feel free to ask.

I saw the movie in 2D with French subtitles. I was also pretty much unspoiled going in.

Here be spoilers )

Yeah, that's about it. I ENJOYED IT A LOT. I kind of want to write fic, but I'm not sure what kind of fic yet.

dhampyresa: (Natasha and red)
I DID IT! I told myself I'd finish and post this story before Captain America Civil War came out, and I did.

Way back before Age of Ultron came out, there were many stories working on the premise that the Winter Soldier would be found before that movie. This is a take on what the events of that movie might have gone, had this been true.

More notes )

Beta by the amazing chiiyo86 who I really need to stop asking for beta the day before deadlines -- but for that I wold need to finish writing fics before deadlines and look I done a stupid staying up late last night finishing it because I did not think this through.

Anyway, I wrote fic, yay.

dhampyresa: (A most terrible case of the Star Wars)
I was having a bad day of the "well i might as well just quit everything and fandom especially since nothing i do ever pleases anyone does anyone even like plotty fic no they do not why do i bother i know i can't do shippy i am a failure as a fan" type but then I drew some stuff and watched Mission Cléopatre so I'm feeling better. Not great, but better.

(Just so you don't worry: I'll be gone tomorrow evening and should catch up on the -- has it been a week already? -- week or so of posts and comments I missed soon.)

ANYWAY! Upcoming fannish stuff I'm excited about!


ROGUE ONE! I still have a most terrible case of the Star Wars, lmao (you should see my WIP folder). Things I got out of this trailer: Jyn Erso! MON MOTHMA! Jyn Erso/Mon Mothma! Admiral Fancy Cape! Jyn Erso in Imperial uniform! Voice-over guy! SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!

The things I want from this movie are basically the same and I'm really hoping fandom delivers on both the femslash and villain/hero shipping. OR BOTH. Both is good. (A fandom person can dream of Imperial!Jyn/Rebel!Mon, okay. Let me liiiiiiiiiiiiive)

I decided it was time I got a Star Wars icon, so now I do (on DW).


DID YOU KNOW CLOAK AND DAGGER ARE GETTING A TV SHOW? Now you do. I am so happy about this, I love Cloak and Dagger a lot. They were awesome in Ults Spidey. I enjoy seeing them show up in any/everything. (The TV show won't go that way, but 1602 Witch Hunter Angela has THE BEST interpretation of their origin story.)

ALSO I really like the Captain America: Civil War - In Good Company featurette.


And this seems as good a time as any to mention the fics I wrote for Bad Bang. I am basically TOO EARNEST FOR BAD BANG, sadly, so they're less crack than crack taken seriously:

Jedi and mutants, oh my! )

The story of how these fics got written is kind of convoluted (and the remix chains on Ao3 are not much help), but it all started in a discussion about Padmé's favourite colour, hence the insistence on MAGENTA NOT PURPLE >:[

So, I was Ant-Man! France apparently gets it very first of all the nations in the world, which is nice.

I saw it in VOSTFR 2D. Can't speak for other versions, etc.

Short version: I enjoyed it! It's funny, it's heisty, Evangeline Lilly wears a suit magnificiently, Paul Rudd takes his shirt off and there was more Cassie than I expected (she is the cutest omg <3).

Long version, with spoilers )

In conclusion: it's a good heist movie, Cassie is the cutest and there are two post-credits scenes.

If anyone has questions about the movie, ask away.

(I am having way too much fun translating French movie titles back into English. Is this what being a Babel fish feels like?)

Anyway, I saw Age of Ultron with a group of fannish friends yesterday.

The version I saw is the 2D VOSTFR one (if there are differences between the versions different countries got, the way there was for Winter Soldier, I saw the French version). As usual, I can't speak for any other versions.

Short version: I was entertained, but I have some reservations.

Long version )

So there you have it, those are my thoughts on Age of Ultron.

Most of the conversation I had with the fandom folk revolved around the movie, but we did talk about some other things, like ongoing fandom events and dead Romans. Me and one of the fandom folk have taken to texting each other whenever we spot dead Romans in the wild, it's great fun.

And that was the prompt I wrote the fic I mentionned in this entry (ie, the one with the maths). I needed to write something fast and fun, because I'm a bit stressed right now, what with stepping up for [community profile] nightonficmountain and all the rest.

I may have gone slightly off-prompt, sorry. Also, if anyone's curious, all the maths checks out. )

I went to see it on Wednesday, but I'm only posting about it now, because I was busy with things.

Non-spoilery review: I liked it and Mystique was great.

Spoilery review )
TL;DR: It was great, but it needed more Rogue and Wanda.

I've transcribed  several of Steve's lists from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and which country they're from, in case, you me somebody wants to write fic where Steve crosses stuff of said lists.

A bunch of lists! )
Let me know if I made any mistakes and/or I missed any lists.

Anything you were surprised to see/not see?

I just saw Winter Soldier and I loved it! It was great.

I went to see it with a girl I've met once before, who is the daughter of a former roomate's of my mom's, and who is coincidentally not on the other side of the Atlantic but in Ireland this semester as well. I like her! I really like her and we're going to go to the zoo at some point in the future and I am excited (and I will buy that elephant plushie I've been wanting to buy since one of my housemates went to the zoo and bought one).

I loved it, the cinematography was awesome, there was a bunch of really cool shots, Falcon was super badass, Black Widow is THE BEST and there were appearances by characters I did not expect.

Btw, it has two credits scenes, just so you know.

We got trailers for: Gardians of the Galaxy (Gamorra is so pretty!), Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Great CGI Spider-Man! Also GWEN STACY♥), X-Men: Days of Future Past (why would you look at this storyline and think 'this could use more Wolverine'? aslo they're going to be in Paris at some point hahaha no). We also had a trailer for Giro d'Italia, because this is apparently a thing now. I feel like my brother would have enjoyed this trailer much more than me, because he's a big (big!) cycling fan and it did look kind of cool on the big screen ngl.

Spoilers on your left )

In conclusion: I loved it as the fact that is entry is 1.6k will attest, but HAHAHA QUÉBECOIS.

In other news! I am now a mod of [community profile] nightonficmountain (also on Livejournal and Archiveofourown). It's pretty much exactly like yuletide except: in June, all characters in approved fanomas are allowed and inactive fandoms can also be allowed! I've never modded an exchange before, it's exciting! (Also, I came up with the name. I'm quite proud of it.)
