Yes, that was me in the swirly black and red cloak on the dancefloor at [livejournal.com profile] wincon looking like a goth dork! What can I say - if you can't wear a cape to a fangirl con, where can you wear one? ;D

Thanks SO much to all the amazing fangirls who welcomed a lost-looking newbie and made me feel accepted in my fannishness!

This video illustrates one of the main reasons I enjoyed Neo Ned so much.  Ned is crazy, fucked-up, AND adorably sweet.

Since he is played by Jeremy Renner, he is also STUPIDLY HOT.  

(Seriously, how does he make almost everything he does - even the dorky stuff - sexy?  His face is not classically handsome, but he moves like a model-turned-martial artist and is believable as almost any character: soldier - duh, assassin - ditto, rich businessman - sure, rock star - hell yeah, cowboy - ditto ditto, car salesman, personal trainer, college professor, policeman, biker, doting dad, chef - yes, please, I'd love some more .....)

BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN READING  ALL THE THINGS !!!!!!! **

But someone recced me this in a comment elsewhere, and I kind of think it is a work of slightly tacky GENIUS!

 
 

~I don't know why it won't embed properly  
                          ETA: must use old embed code  (curse you, newfangled Flash embeds  *shakes fist*



Now I want a gif of Eddie Izzard saying "Yus!" or  "And this is all true..."  here.  Can angels make that happen?



**  SPN J2 Big Bang is ongoing right now  -  which means I'm trying to keep up with all the BBs,  monitor the BBs posting to AO3 and invite the authors/artists to post to the Supernatural and J2 Big Bang Collection over there,  keep an eye out for BB authors who need/want AO3 invites,  track all of my lovely AO3 Subscriptions,  and try to stay on top of all the new Avenger-fic!  Plus, people keep reccing awesome Inception fics  -  nooooo, I don't need a new fandom!  I'm barely keeping my head above water as it is!  I still haven't managed to make it through the kinkmeme - or the last several comment memes  ([livejournal.com profile] be_compromised : stop being so amazing for just a few days so the rest of us can catch up!)  

AND I really would like to post some Avenger recs and lovely scifi BigBang recs, but ....   then I would have to spend less time reading fic.  O.O  

Like that's gonna happen.

I want to find out if anyone from AO3 is doing a membership drive/info thingy at Wincon or if I should volunteer.   Guess I should get right on that, huh?  (Really, I just want a T-shirt - even if I have to make my own.)

Okay did anyone else see this?  It's better than the original trailer, in my opinion!




Also, go now to pet, stroke, and coo over [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub's fantastic Avenger's Kissing Meme!


 Awesomeness awaits!

......   UNTIL IRON MAN 3 ANYWAY.

Is it just me, or did anyone else see Phil there at the end? I mean, a slightly balding white guy in a suit and tie nearly running into Agent Hill as she leaves the bridge of the Helicarrier?  Who else on that thing wears a suit and tie?  Who else would be striding purposefully onto the bridge, probably to report to Fury for debrief or something?   Who else could it be?

I HAVE DECIDED TO BELIEVE IT IS PHIL, NO MATTER WHAT ARGUMENTS ARE PRESENTED TO THE CONTRARY.

Phil is not dead.  That is all.

My favorite bits were the parts where Cap is all super-soldier-with-amazing-physical-competency.  Everything - jumping out of the plane, using the Helicarrier like a jungle gym (EVERYONE in this movie was flinging themselves off of anything/everything ... just, turn around and jump/fall/dive full speed ahead, relying on sheer skill when it comes to hitting the bad guy/making it in time/not going splat.  SO MUCH COMPETENCE - I HAVE MANY COMPETENCE FEELS.) When he's running down the street to get to the hostages? The running and diving, somersaulting, knowing exactly how to move, just ...  AAAAAH!  And the little thing he and Tony do where the repulsor reflects/ricochets off the shield? XD XD XD XD  Iron Man's entrance in Germany! Overriding the comms for his own personal soundtrack!  Hell, ALL of Tony's entrances were amazing. The talk/threats with Loki - I kept going "aaw yeah, here's the showman.  Bring it, Tony!"
LOOOOVED  Tasha - " Thank you for your cooperation", "It'll be fun".  Hijacking alien space-chariot of unknown technological origin? That's confidence, girlfriend.   And the audience applauded when Hulk 'smashed' Loki - just, I can't, right in the middle of the grand speech, it was BEAUTIFUL.  I would rather have a gif of that than one of the Hulk/Thor punchout, just when people are being annoying ^_____^

I cannot talk about Hawkeye because there are no words for how much I heart Jeremy Renner - I just saw Ghost Protocol, okay?  It's, he's ... *wibbles*  

    * AAAARRRRMMMMSSSSSS*

And Bruce! - I agree with everyone, Mark Ruffalo was FANTASTIC!  Way to redeem a comicbook movie character, Joss!  I disliked the other two Hulk movies ( I told a friend who hasn't been following the movies until now, and who wants to watch all the previous relevant Marvel films, that she could skip the Norton Hulk, except for maybe the last bit with Fury).  I would go see a movie with this Hulk.  AND the Black Widow/Hawkeye backstory movie!

And Pepper being barefoot at home b/c in her Louboutins she's taller than Tony!  In her Daisy Dukes!  "Tony doesn't like it when people hand him things"  And her giant diamond! (whataya think ~12~ carats?)

Also, how many groups of fans do you think are planning like, "Let's go see it again, and then after - we'll go for schwarma!"   The restaurants are probably so confused by the sudden uptick in business.  XD  XD

*rubs hands together gleefully*  Now for all the Bruce fic and fixit fic and Hawkeye angst fic and ...

(seriously, this movie has redeemed the entire last few weeks of my life - only something this good could make me feel better about what's going on.  And now I have to learn XHTML coding in the next month - sigh.  If only I had enough money to see it again and again.  I wonder if a doctor could prescibe a film as an anti-depressant and if insurance would cover it? *ponders*)

or actually my RL job, I saw a car with the Ohio vanity plate BK-READR!

What an awesome idea! Normally I find vanity plates to be kind of douchey, but this one just made my day. This squee makes more sense if I point out that I work in a bookstore.

So I, obviously, love all scifi J2 and just have to rave about my favorites:

I just (literally minutes ago) read the most amazing [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang fic:

Zero One/One Zero by [livejournal.com profile] gretazreta


Artist: [info]deannawesson

Art Prompt Title: Cyber Town
Genre: RPS, AU
Rating PG-13
Pairing(s): Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki, minor Christian Kane/Beth Riesgraf
Word Count: 13,600
Summary: Jensen's the best navigator in the Zone: a “flyer” who works witha small crew hacking virtual security systems. It's exciting, profitable, and not entirely legal. When one of his team gets lost on-grid, Jensen teams up with Jared, a “breaker”, who's convinced that there's more to the latest rash of Zone fatalities than meets the eye.



And I have to sing the praises of the always-incredible [livejournal.com profile] zuben_eschamali whose They're Advertising in the Skies (For People Like Us)  also rocked the reversebang and got recced, oh, everywhere because of its atmospheric cyberpunk loveliness.


It was based on the incredible art here by [livejournal.com profile] amindaya

Summary: Jensen's gotten outside the system and managed to survive, thumbing his nose at the all-powerful conglomerates with the help of his augmentations. But a chance hookup with a stranger from a club makes him rethink everything, and suddenly he's facing a decision he never thought he'd have to make.
 

These are so good, y'all, better than a lot of new published stuff I've been reading.



*glee!*

I saw this in [livejournal.com profile] transfixeddream's Halloween post and I adore it!





Awwwww!     So much love!






-if someone knows where it's from, I will totally credit -

EVERYONE IS DOING PDFs FOR THEIR BIGBANGS!


OK, not everyone, but lots of people - and others are pitching in to make PDFs for those who don't have time to do it themselves!  And I think I might need to get myself a Mediafire account or something because I LOVE THIS!

I LOVE THAT THIS IS HAPPENING!

Now, if only the artists could all be persuaded to make default ebook covers, everything would be perfect.

I still would like to find some way to get a tutorial from my fav PDFers like [livejournal.com profile] too_rational  and the [livejournal.com profile] saucyminxfix  on how they get their PDFs to keep the same font in Calibre.  Mine always convert to Times-Roman - I hate Times-Roman.
To keep the conversion from churning out a bunch of missing characters (a l, sma l, tota ly, or fne, frm, and ftfu ly) I always have to set OpenOffice to Verdana, which doesn't give me a lot of leeway with the look of the file.  Maybe because I don't care about chapter headings or a table of contents? Eh.


But in other news, [livejournal.com profile] poor_choices  has once again created wonderful fic!  This time it's a sideways, affectionate J2 take on Asimov's I, Robot called Look What They Made.   Heart warming, bantering scifi is to love!

Terraform  by [livejournal.com profile] gilascave  

Author's summary (because mine suck):  Jensen works for the Terraformation Department, monitoring a planet almost ready for settlement. Jared is a bartender new to the station, who decides to make Jensen his own personal project. Will he succeed, or is Jared hiding a more sinister purpose? And with Jensen's own secrets to hide, will it ultimately matter?



This is the best thing I've read in a while - READ IT NOW!    It will make you smile (and possibly tear up a little) *winks*
