So, as you folks know I'm Italian, which means that on April 22 (AKA this Wednesday!!) I get to watch Avengers: Age of Ultron. I can't believe the time has finally come. YAY! (1)
This reminds me of the first Avengers movie back in 2012 and how excited I was after all the waiting to finally get to see the band come together, with the added bonus of getting to do so earlier than the US crowd, thanks to the earlier European release Marvel's got going for movies coming out on spring (last year they did the same for Captain America: The Winter Soldier).
I remember that back in 2012 the most fun I had was at [livejournal.com profile] allnightlights's The Avengers Party Post where, during the critical gap between April 26th and May 4th, those of us who had seen the movie already got to squee about it and share reactions & gifs & brand new fanworks to our heart content without fear of spoiling anyone else.
And, yes, I know this is the brand now age of tumblr, but I'm afraid I'm still not much for tumblr so I'm wondering if there are any fellow Marvel fans from countries with an early release who may be interested in the idea of an Age of Ultron Dreamwidth/Livejournal Party Post.
Last year I was kind of bummed there wasn't anything like that when CATWS came out, so this year I decided to become proactive and do something myself.
So, starting April 22 let's party! Who's with me?

My very favourite Nu Who companion is Mickey, because he's pretty and he has the most development-over-time and he is so realistical and basically he is a decent bloke dealing with unusual situations. I am thinking of a post about how he is >>>> everyone, but like with Ace I worry am not really sure how to articulate the exact nature of my love. Yet. So this post is about my favourite of The Big Five, which is to say Donna.

i draw hearts around her )

Perhaps Donna and Mickey could become BFFs somehow. I would watch such a spinoff.

. It's a long, long time till my rewatch hits the 50th, but I want to say how much it bugs me that Ten has the wrong hair in it. Everyone knows it went untamable after Jackie Tyler left the universe and was no longer available to do his hair for him! This is surely canonical fact not just something adorbs that I made up in my own head!

. I am running an Experiment which is will I have an icon of Nine by the time I get to his regeneration. At the moment the odds don't look too good for him, but we still have more than half his episodes to go. And those DO NOT INCLUDE The Long Game as - in case you missed these repeated promises - I shall be justifiably skipping that, the SUPPOSED end of S4, and the couple of S2 episodes that I don't have on DVD. But that's hardly anything and it's still a rewatch, shut face.

. It will help if I don't look at it as "dozens and dozens of episodes until Missy wah" but as "it's almost Dalek which had Acting in it at least, then the Moffat ones happen, and then Nine's finale was probably Quite Good." I am enthused! I just have to get nearer the end of his season! And it's probably best to think of S2 not as "the least good season" but as "some quite brilliant episodes surrounded by some which are admittedly shit-on-a-stick."

Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: None really

Author's note:

I would like to apologise for the long delay between the last chapter and this one, and for the fact that it’s a slightly shorter chapter than usual. I’m afraid there’s also likely to be a long gap before I post the next chapter. I’ve been laid low by a migraine that’s been hanging around like an unwanted guest since February, which has put a serious dent in my ability to write. However, rest assured that this story is not dead, but like dread Cthulhu, merely sleeping. I fully intend to continue with it as and when I am able. Thank you for your patience.


I love AO3's weird tagging

Actual tags I have clicked on on AO3 today:

-Tony Stark needs a hug
-Tony Stark has Daddy issues
-Howard Stark's A+ parenting
-Darcy Lewis is Tony Stark's daughter

That last one has over 100 fics! Is that even a thing? I didn't know that was a thing! Of course, now I'm going to have to read all of them. Oh internet, you are always full of strange and wonderful surprises.

The rewatchathon restarts!

I swear to fuck, I get a little frisson of cognitive dissonance every time someone refers to the "ABO integration conduit" at work. Every damn time.

And what was left after that too...

What I’ve Just Finished Reading
I finished The Play of Gilgamesh by Edwin Morgan which took me a ridiculous amount of time given how short it was, but was nonetheless an enjoyable retelling of the story. Points for the Glaswegian jester too...

What I’m Reading
I collected Face Like Glass from the library on Tuesday and then tripped and fell into reading it. I opened it to read the prologue to see what it was like and put it down again several hours and 100 pages later. It's not a book that I can just read a chapter of and put down, and is also rather a substantial paperback so it's not going to be lunchtime reading - which is a shame because it feels exactly the kind of book that you take everywhere and read every moment you get. (It couldn't have come in the week I only had one shift rather than the week when I have six?!) If it lives up to its current promise I'm going to want to read everything Francis Hardinge has ever written....oh and [personal profile] shinyjenni? I see what you meant about the cheese...

What I’m Reading Next
Need to finish the library books then get back into reading stuff from my shelf, I was doing well and then I got distracted, so I need to get back on track.

I was looking at my photo backlog and thinking I ought to make another photo post, I discovered two things. One, I've got loads of photos from my trip up the Far North Line still to post, and two for some reason I uploaded my photos of Dunrobin Castle to flickr twice...so its probably high time I sorted that out and made a photo post about my visit there.
