Okay, so, dogs have a lot of methods of soliciting play, some of which are not very obvious if you are a human. These include a "play bow,"  the meaning of which is so obvious to dogs that your dog may attempt to engage in play if you ever do yoga, or the more obvious to humans 'dropping a toy in your lap.'

And then there's my dog, who sits, stares fixedly at you, and growls softly like a depressed and disappointed lawn-mower. This post also on dreamwidth (comment count unavailable comments)

Best part of owning an android tablet is the adventure.

Like when your dog steps on it, and it takes a screencap and you are never again able to replicate that function.

Dammit there are plenty of characters from whom I buy "better to say nothing than risk rejection," but Steve Rogers is not one. Steve Rogers is "I'm gonna let you know how awesome I think you are, and you don't have to do anything about it unless you want to." Steve Rogers is "this terrifies me, so I'm gonna do it."

Waiting in the airport, and the gate next to me is boarding for some place called "mynot" which frankly sounds like the sort of thing you need to worry about eating you if you are Luke Skywalker.

I am currently in a hurry up and wait phase on a contract, so I am using my time productively by catching up on Orphan Black. And by 'catching up', I mean 'am nearly through the first season.'

Orphan BlackCollapse )

Prompted basically only from the fact that their 'shit is going down' music reminds me of the Winter Soldier's theme, I want a crossover where the clones are a Hydra program, possibly attempting to build on the Soviet Black Widow program.

I don't know what jojoba oil is(*), or how my immune system encountered it to form such an opinion of it, but I am definitely allergic to it.

* I mean, I googled it, I know what it is, but other than that, I basically don't know what it is.

One of the few things I disliked

about Captain America: the Winter Soldier is touched on by Hello Tailer's post ostensibly on costuming, is that the action scenes are kind of a mess, cinematographically.

I mean, watching some of the behind the scenes stuff, it's evident that one of the reasons why the action scenes look like choppy vignettes that don't fit together is because they were filmed that way, but it's the job of the movie to make you forget that.

(I watched In the Cut: Shots in the Dark (Knight) which takes apart DKR's chase scene, and ever since, when watching action, I tend notice the ways in which these scenes fail to make sense.)

It's just not clear, especially in the chase scene, which way things are pointed, and what is situated where, and who's getting punched in what direction.

Another thing I am not so much disliked as was... a bit disappointed by? Is spoilerCollapse )

I once told someone I had no Bucky feels. [hollow_laugh.gif] It's a very nice feeling, though, to be head over heels for Cap 2, because Teen Wolf was making me angry and miserable and yet I wasn't quite able to kick it to the curb. I'm not sure I've ever been this attached to a movie fandom, and I'd forgotten just how much terrain is off the map and in the realm of fannon.

Specific areas that are unmapped by canon in CAtWS:

Natasha: How old is she?Collapse )

The Winter Soldier: What does he know/can he do?Collapse )

I was talking to Holli as well about how little I am interested in the AU fic people are writing where they are post-docs, or the coffee-shop AUs, or whatever. If Bucky isn't trying to recover from being coercively used as an assassin, I just don't care. I am probably interested in your HYDRA won!AU, or your SHIELD making use of the asset!AU, and whatever AU you want to write me to go with this fanart, though.

ETA that my ideal Winter Soldier story has this soundtrack.

Let's play a game!

This game is called "Most horrifying thing Tony Stark has said during sex." I'll get the obvious one out of the way first: Read more...Collapse )

It can be horrifying to his partner, or you personally. (Also, horrifying to Tony gets you extra points, if you can manage it.)
