Captain America: Civil War. SPOILERS.

OK, so I have to admit the first cap movie didn't really do it for me, which is weird because origin stories are usually my thing.

Which is why I am so happy to see that the Cap movies are getting so much better! I had high hopes for this film and its ability to build on the genius of Joss Whedon's avengers 2 and this film did it justice. There are so many things I could rave about here, the music was spot on as usual, the fight choreography left me with bruises and the stunning surprise of seeing a young Tony Stark left me awed by the subtlety of CG used in the film.

The ensemble cast was stunning with some great supporting cast members introduced who will obviously spin off sooner rather than later. The black panther was brilliantly done in particular, he was brilliantly written and played, this is what I am really coming to love about the MCU.

Today was not a good headspace day for me but this has definitely done the trick. Can't wait for the dvd. Booyah.

Just going through my very old bookmarks and (re)discovered the crack impala. Can't believe that's still going but so very very glad it is!
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I've discovered many new things because of you.

Today you are my happy place.

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Horay!

Horay for today!!!!

Big Bang fics are unleashed upon the world! I'm a very very happy girl right now...

Seriously, reading fic is WAY better than reading page after page of crappy job listings. Frankly I think fic has saved my sanity if not my soul, I was extremely close to selling said artefact in order to stop the incessant dribbling of my brain from my ears.

So HORAY for today, and all of those who had the guts to do something I didn't. Well, with any luck I'll get my courage from the Wiz and be able to join in next year when my skin's a little thicker.

Ok, so I've gone through all of the BB sign ups and decided that i should at least have read some of the authors I've never heard of.  Holy Cow! There are so many stories this year.... I know what I'm doing with my summer now! 

Thank you to all of the authors and their artists for doing something I really don't have the guts to do.  I've been reading fics for so long that I really should try to contribute to the fandom but everything I end up writing just doesn't seem to compare with what you awesome people are able to produce. Witness my ever-loving addiction to the run-on sentence!

So the show.... Got to say I'm with most of you out there and I'm LOVING bad-ass Cas! I'm loving that now he's found his freedom he's making his own choices both good and bad... spiritually he's much more human. There's been so much talk about the power of souls and what-not I've got to wonder if Cas exercising his freedom in this way will leave him being the first angel in creation to actually HAVE a soul. If he isn't already?
Afterall. He was brought back more powerful than before after his vessel was exploded by Lucifer.
 
Now we know we can't trust anything that Cas says or does is questionable  (how Vonnegut - unreliable narrators!). I seriously doubt I'm the only one out there going to go back over the eps for other Cas moments.
 
Can't wait for the finale! But I also don't want it to come, if it's over I have to wait damn near a year for some more of the most excellent show I've seen since the Joss-era
 
Lastly, I've GOT to show love for the truly amazing epeeblade! Her sex corps 'verse is the most staggeringly provocative series of fics I have ever read! Her original characters are so very very well done that they add SO much to the plot. I'm so excited to see her name in the BB author list!
 
Happy Finale Folks!

Happy New Year!

 Starting the year as I mean to go on... chillin' with a beer and a SPN marathon!

Hope the rest of this year pans out like this.

Dean Winchester rising from the grave at midnight..... man I wish my mates liked SPN. Their loss... at least I don't have to worry about them nickin' my beers!

Have fun!

Ok, here are a few writers out here I've found  and loved so much 

bree-black.livejournal.com/41545.html Of Storms and Sanctuary. (Dean/Castiel)
 Beautifully written, it's a haunting and elegant encounter with a dream-walking Cas and a bed-ridden Dean.
This story has real staying power, I've read it a few times and it still holds the same command it did on first reading.

community.livejournal.com/arealwildchild/52119.html The Smoke and Lightning Trilogy. (Jared/Jensen)
Holy Cow Bat-fans! This is my absolute favourite J2 AU epic fic! Hot bikes, loads of ink and a perfect balance between angst, ass-kicking, love and violence. The wider 'verse and the fan-art it's inspired are truly staggering.
Set aside an entire weekend (or two) and just lose yourself in the world created by these two truly fantastic authors.

embroiderama.livejournal.com/55732.html Truth 'Verse. (Jeff/Jensen)
This collection of fics is one that I keep coming back to. It shows the full evolution of a relationship between the two in a way that no-other author I've found has been able to do. The angst of first coming out never tips over into the melodramatic and the eventual love really comes across and feels very real.

Gah! There are so many more but RL calls... more rec's coming soooooon :)

When you fall between the cracks in the world it's easy to see why so many choose to do it. 

Unlike the world you live in we are permitted to observe only... we cannot touch nor be touched by what we see.

We who fall are timeless, forever.

We are the lost. Hiding in plain sight.

We are the flesh, the stench, the filth you hide from yourselves.

We are your dirty little secret.

And we like it.

Supernatural Addiction

I never considered the larger fandom that my favourite shows inspired and thank God  for that :)

Now it means I get to feast on all the writing and artwork produced by all of these awesomely talented individuals! My life Rocks!

So thanks to the awesome crew of the Big Bangs, you have kept me sane, inspired me and compelled me to lose alot of sleep; with any luck I'll be writing a fic for the 2011 challenge (should there be one).

Since I'm new to the scene and I really doubt anyone'll ever read this I'm gonna give a shout out to a few of the writers who have me hopelessly addicted to their work
