I'm really excited for The Hitman's Bodyguard. The trailer is hilarious and I'm so interested to see the film.

But of course the movie I'm most excited for is Kingsman 2. After this seizure inducing teaser dropped a little while ago I've been waiting for the proper trailer, and now it's here and it looks sooooo great.

Some of my favorite parts: )

It's gonna be a long wait until September for me!

What movies are you all excited for?

The Kingsman 2 poster is up online!!!

I'm so excited right now that it's a little difficult for me to act normal.  There are also some tweets going around about the trailer.  I cannot wait to see it.

Title: East of the Sun and West of the Moon
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart + Ensemble
Summary: Of fairy tales and happy endings.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (5053 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: I wanted to give this fic a more generic fairy tale title, but this was the one it wanted. Also, I have no idea how old Eggsy's sister is supposed to be at the end of the movie, so I may be taking serious liberties with her maturity level in this fic. Call it an AU?  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Eggsy thought that if in the story the good fairy told the princess-who-wasn't-always-a-princess that she could have the fine house and the steady income from the awesome job, but she couldn’t have him because he got himself shot in fucking Kentucky, no one would like it very much.

Eggsy could walk the world with no shoes on a thousand times over and it wouldn’t bring Harry back, because fairy tales weren’t real.

Title: On Lateness
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Gazelle/Roxy Morton, Richmond Valentine
Summary: An unexpected encounter on campus.
Rating: PG
Length: Short (1,760 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: An unusual pair for me but I like to branch out from time to time. This is based on an American (and also outdated) university experience and I'm afraid I don't know a whole lot about TAs (only one of my profs ever had one), so apologies in advance for any mistakes there.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Gazelle blinked at her. “You remember me?” She sounded surprised, in that I-try-very-hard-not-to-take-anything-too-seriously way Roxy remembered her having.

Of course she remembered. Gazelle always sat at the back of the classroom, the seat beside her always empty, and she would prop her legs up on it and survey the room through the curtain of her hair in a listless fashion that did little to disguise how smart she was and how much she really did care about getting an education. Her legs were bright and knife sharp, like her smile and her eyes and her tongue- when Roxy coaxed her into speaking during class, that was. Gazelle was very hard to forget indeed.

Title: So Fair a Gift
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Roxy Morton
Summary: Eggsy is getting a little tired of waiting for a certain someone to introduce himself.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (2,675 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: This is a short AU I wrote a while ago and then forgot about. It's (loosely) based on a prompt from this post: “I am a ballet dancer and I see you every time I perform in the first row and there are flowers in my room every time I perform when will you finally introduce yourself” AU. I've done a lot of theater but very little dance, so I may be making some incorrect assumptions. The title is from, "Your soul is a beautiful thing, child. No emperor received so fair a gift. The angels wept to-night” from Phantom of the Opera, because of course I went there.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: It had been a couple of weeks- all right, three weeks and a day- since Eggsy saw the man first. Eggsy didn’t often look at the audience- it was distracting and unprofessional- but on that particular night Eggsy just happened to glance over and there he was, sitting in the front row with this incredibly intense look on his face. He was well fit, wearing a tuxedo that hugged his broad shoulders and surprisingly slim waist just as tightly as Eggsy would rather like to, with faintly greying hair and these dark, dark eyes.

Title: Snowbound
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Merlin, Original Characters
Summary: Considering how many times Harry has almost died in the field, it would be silly to call this his worst mission. It rather feels like it is, though.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Medium (6,033 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: “Wouldn’t it be easier if I was-” Eggsy cleared his throat again- “Harry’s- you know- his date?” Eggsy’s cheeks reddened slightly, but he held his chin high.

Harry opened his mouth to protest, but before he could get anything out Merlin said, “Very good, Eggsy. You’re exactly right. Those are precisely the covers I’ve built for you.” He held out files to both of them. “Happy reading.”

What are your favorite characters and pairings to write? (from [livejournal.com profile] megan_moonlight)

Right now I would say Harry and Eggsy- and the Kingsman characters in general.

I'm usually pretty eclectic in terms of what show/movie/book series I'll get attached to enough to write fanfiction about, but if I do I try to like all the characters (or at least write a version of all the characters that I can like) and I usually ship multiple pairings, so it's a bit difficult to narrow it down beyond what I'm into at the moment.

Title: Until I Saw Your Face
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart + Ensemble
Summary: Harry just needs somewhere to lay low and patch himself up. He isn't expecting to meet someone who fascinates him, or to run into that someone again and again.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Very Long (103,322 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Prostitution, canon-typical violence, minor character death, light dom/sub and bondage (this fic is not at all as a kinky as that makes it sound); written as an H/C bingo straight line extra for "disappearing", "secret allies", "wild card" (prostitution), "fighting" and "touch-starved"; not Brit-picked. (Or very well researched. Sorry.)
Excerpt: Harry offered the first figure that came into his head. Judging from the way the boy's eyes widened, it was far too high.

He said, “I know a place,” a little too quickly. “Let me just…” He took out his phone and fired off several texts in quick succession. “One of my stepdad’s mates works in a- a hotel real close to here.” From his stutter, Harry guessed that it wasn’t a very high class establishment- but then if Harry had wanted high class he would have sought it out himself. Somewhere where they had seen everything, where they looked the other way without question- that was what Harry needed at the moment, and his knowledge of such areas in London was unfortunately lacking.

What are 5 fandom things you look forward to in 2017? (from [livejournal.com profile] megan_moonlight)

1. Star Trek Discovery.  The cast looks so great and even if it didn't I would be stoked because NEW STAR TREK!

2. Kingsman 2.  I'm as apprehensive as I am excited for this, but most of what I've heard makes it sound really cool, so yeah.  I want this yesterday, not in October.

3. A Series of Unfortunate Events.  I loved these books when I was younger and I'm holding out hope for the Netflix version to be a good adaptation.

4. The new Masterpiece Les Miserables they're talking about.  I don't think it'll actually be out in 2017 because they haven't even cast it yet, but seriously I'm even looking forward to just casting announcements.  Promo material.  Anything.  Everything.  I've wanted a multi-part Les Mis adaptation forever.

5. Shadowhunters.  I don't think this is the best show ever, but I do love Malec.  I can't wait for more.

There are undoubtedly a bunch of other things I'm not thinking of right now, but yeah- there's five.

Title: Through the Years
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart + Ensemble
Summary: Across three Christmases.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (4,910 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: I suspect this doesn't completely work with the timeline of the movie, so I guess just think of it as slightly AU?  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Merlin didn’t let Eggsy into Harry’s room very often. Eggsy wasn’t sure if it was actually because he wanted Eggsy to concentrate on the trials- which would probably make Merlin the only person who thought Eggsy was going to last long enough for it to matter- or if he just didn’t want to encourage the stupid school kid crush he clearly knew Eggsy had on Harry.

See, Eggsy knew it was stupid. He didn’t even understand it most of the time, just why he had walked out of that police station, took one look at Harry- twice his age, all perfectly put together and posh- and thought yes please.

Other times, Eggsy remembered seeing Harry plow through Dean’s boys like one of his most secret fantasies made flesh. He remembered hearing Harry’s voice come out of nowhere like the voice of God and save him from Dean. He remembered feeling Harry's heat and inhaling his expensive cologne as Harry settled at his side and said he had potential and he- for the first time in a long time- believed it. Those times, Eggsy thought of course you’ve got a crush on him, bruv.

Title: Hope and Good Intentions
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart + Ensemble
Summary: Harry Hart just sold his soul to a demon in a snapback.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Very Long (33,844 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Casual sex, soul selling, smoking.  Written as an H/C bingo cross-square extra for "wild card" (deals with demons) and "tyranny/rebellion".  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: "Hope ain't ever foolish," Eggsy said.

The seriousness in his expression as he said it made him look old. It made him look like something else- and Harry wondered why exactly hope was so important to him. Perhaps, Harry thought, it wasn’t good intentions that the road to hell was paved with but hope. After all, hope was why Harry was here, clinging desperately to the notion that he might not have to play the terrible hand he had been dealt after all. That a miracle- or in this case something significantly less holy- would come along and make everything all right. Harry knew perfectly well that the world didn’t work like that.

Except maybe it did, because Eggsy’s lips pulled up into a now-familiar smirk and he said, “I’m gonna fix all this up nice for you, Harry. You'll see.”

Title: Ghosts
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart
Summary: Eggsy shows up at Harry's house.
Rating: G
Length: Very Short (836 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Happy Halloween! This was inspired by a "there's a ghost in my house can I stay with you" prompt that I can't seem to find now. Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: “I think my house is haunted,” was the first thing Eggsy said when Harry opened the door.

Title: One In a Thousand
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Dagonet
Summary: A year from the day they met, Eggsy decides to do something special for Harry.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Medium (6.724 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Not Brit-picked. Also I'm a little bit sick, but hopefully my editing job was sufficient anyway.  Part of my Heart and Understanding series.
Excerpt: Eggsy could hardly blame Harry for not realizing back then how important the day they met would eventually be, and- again- keeping track of time wasn’t Harry’s strong suit.

Harry’s strong suit, as far as Eggsy could tell, was being really good to Eggsy. Eggsy had come around, for the most part, to the idea that he deserved it, but he still wanted to… not pay Harry back exactly, but do the same. Harry had told Eggsy enough times how happy Eggsy made him already, just by being himself, that Eggsy believed that too- but he still wanted to do something to show Harry how special he was once in a while, and today seemed like the perfect place to start.

Title: Healing
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart
Summary: Eggsy has a system for when he gets injured in the field. Today it's gone a little bit... awry.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (4,006 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: References to past abuse.  I'm sure this plot has been done before, but hopefully I put an interesting spin on it. Written as an H/C bingo cross-square extra for "wild card" (hiding an injury or illness) and "touch-starved".  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Eggsy was a spy; it was his job to get in and get out without starting anything with anyone, and unlike Harry he was actually pretty good at that. It was rare that Eggsy got into a real fight in the field, and rarer still that he ended up seriously hurt- but it did happen. The first few times it happened, he’d told his mother that he’d been in a minor car crash, then a mugging, and then- as he started scraping the bottom of the excuse barrel- he had caught himself actually thinking about telling her that he’d run into a door or tripped down the stairs.

That was when he realized he had a problem.

Fic: Quiet

Aug. 12th, 2016 11:03 pm
potentiality_26: (kingsman)
Title: Quiet
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Michelle Unwin + Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Daisy Unwin
Summary: Michelle still isn't quite sure what to make of Harry.
Rating: PG
Length: Short (1,381 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: References to past abuse.  This fills the "accidents" square for my H/C bingo. I wasn't really planning to write this, but the prompt inspired me and it did fill in some blanks, so here it is. Part of my Heart and Understanding series.  The next installment will be more Harry/Eggsy-centric (probably). Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Even giving him the benefit of the doubt, Michelle didn't always know how she felt about Harry- this young man who she could have sworn was older, this she-didn’t-even-know-what who had turned her son’s life upside down in- it seemed- all the best possible ways. Looking at him in his perfectly tailored suit, and listening to his unfailingly crisp annunciation, Michelle would never have expected someone like Harry to be as good for Eggsy as he was without there being some kind of catch. But, like with the windfalls that had brought her this new house and this new life, Michelle was starting- slowly- to believe that maybe there was no catch.

Title: The Wind In the Dark
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Merlin, Amelia, Original Characters
Summary: Sequel to Enough To Live On, or five ways having an undead Arthur comes in handy (and one way Harry is really a lot of trouble).
Rating: NC-17
Length: Medium (6,145 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: This fills the "haunted" square for my H/C bingo, because the first thing that prompt made me want to write was a sequel to Enough to Live On. I’m not sure whether or not the Canonical Character Death tag is still applicable, but this is a sequel so it’s canonical to the series. Now, I call this a series, but I decided not to create one here because I’m not planning any other installments (though I may change my mind about that in the future). Since I remember some people not being too into the sex scene last time, fair warning: I open one in media res in this story. The title comes from "Enough To Go By" by Vienna Teng just like the previous story.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: “I miss being invisible,” Harry told Eggsy.

“No you don’t,” Eggsy returned immediately.

“I definitely do.” At the very least, Harry missed being unable to go far from Eggsy’s side. It had been frustrating- even painful- at the time, but it was much worse being so far from him now. Eggsy’s voice through the glasses was no substitute for Eggsy himself. “If I still was, you’d have to be here talking to these idiots with me.”

I know not too many of my friends here on LJ are into Kingsman and/or interested in seeing spoilers for the sequel, but those who are should check this out.  Apparently it's a t-shirt some of the crew members are wearing and I love it.  A) the art is amazing and B) if it's really representative of what the movie will be like I am beyond excited. As always, I'm trying not to get my hopes up but oh. my. god.

I'm also really excited for Star Trek Discovery.  We don't know much about it yet- and I'm not sure how I'm going to watch it (having to pay for CBS' new website sounds dumb)- but every once in a while it hits me that I'm getting new Star Trek soon and I just give a little squeal.  I enjoy the reboot movies, but it's just not the same as getting a new show with a new cast and crew.  I can't wait!

Title: Out of the Cold
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Merlin
Summary: A mission gone wrong.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (2,744 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Yep, I wrote trudging through snow angst in the middle of summer. The title is from "Keep Me Warm" by The Little Estate feat. Erin Bowman, which I found by googling word combinations- but it's actually a very nice song to listen to while looking at gingerbread recipes and pining for winter like I've been doing. This fills my H/C bingo "near death experiences" square.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: “I know you don’t want to start talking like this,” Harry said. “But we have to think practically. I’m slowing you down.” The snow was thick and Eggsy would have been having trouble walking through it even without Harry draped over his shoulders. And at his age- and Harry so hated thoughts that began with ‘at his age’, but again practicality had to win out- Harry just couldn’t handle the cold or the exertion as well as he once did, and that was without the twisted ankle and cracked ribs.

Title: None But You
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Michelle Unwin, Daisy Unwin, Original Characters
Summary: Sequel to No Charm Equal, in which there are overdue conversations and unexpected revelations.
Rating: PG-13
Length: 4,106 words
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: A “No Charm Equal” follow up where Harry meets Michelle was always in popular demand (and I feel like this isn't the version of it that anyone was hoping for, sorry), but what really prompted this fic was a reader who asked for that and also Eggsy getting jealous when someone flirted with Harry. It made me decide that there were a couple of things I still needed to address, so hopefully the angst here won’t feel like drama for drama’s sake (and of course there’s a happy ending). The title is from Persuasion- "I have loved none but you." The context there isn't the best fit, but I wanted to keep to the Austen theme. This also fills my H/C bingo "hugs" square.
Excerpt: Harry and Eggsy had ultimately decided that Eggsy should tell his mother that he and Harry had only recently made things official between them, which despite their long acquaintance was technically the truth. It wasn't a truth that made Harry look very good, but he knew he deserved that. After all, it was his own fault that nothing had happened between them earlier. Eggsy wouldn’t soon let Harry live down how long it had taken him to see that Eggsy was in love with him, and Merlin and the rest of Harry’s fellow cupids wouldn’t soon let him live down how long it had taken him to see that he was in love with Eggsy.
