Five days later, my post on Civil War.

My thoughts... )

All in all I thought it was a good movie and pretty much what I expected going in.

From [livejournal.com profile] daria234: Which characters in MCU would you like to see interact more?

Well, from an obvious shippy perspective, I would really like for Coulson and Clint Barton to interact more.  They seem to be on very different trajectories at the moment (I heard a rumor that they wanted Hawkeye to do a guest spot on AoS, but I don't know how legitimate it was), but it would be great.  Also, an actual scene with the Avengers learning that Coulson is alive would be awesome- especially Tony.

I really can't think of anyone else I would especially like to see interact more than they have- but there a lot of characters who are very locked in their specific part of the MCU that I would like to see interact with people they haven't yet.  Like Melinda May and Natasha, or Jane and Bruce Banner, or Skye and Darcy, or Rhodey and Sam Wilson.  It's a big enough universe at this point that there are a lot of characters who are actually pretty closely connected to each other (one or two degrees of seperation at most) but have never technically met, and it would be really cool if they could.

BTW, I'm about done with my questions.  If anyone would like to add a few more, hit me with it.

Watched Agent Carter and Forever.

The promo stuff for Agent Carter is really weird.  First they talk about how "she lost the love of her life" and that annoys me because what I liked so much about Peggy's arc in CATFA and CATWS is that she had a life without him, and a pretty good one.  And then the show comes along and is all, "we must do the tragic struggling hero thing."  Then there's this voice-over guy that comes on saying soemthing about "TV's newest female weapon" which is bizarre.  I don't mind the female part, there's no reason not to mention it when it is, in fact, noteworthy- I just feel like this "newest" suggests some profusion when that is in fact not the case, and weapon is just... an awkward choice.  As with last week, I like the show but I don't love it.  

Boy, but I do love Forever.  It was a great episode.  I've heard that it was a surprise that it was even picked up for a whole season, so I'm worried there won't be a season 2.  Anyway, I'm having fun while it lasts.

I'm going to try to watch Galavant soon, but so far I haven't found the time.

I may do a more intelligent reaction post a little later, but right now I just need to say that I love her and Jarvis and everything, but.  BUT-

Movies and TV shows always do this thing where there's a strong female protagonist in a story set in the past, and it's all woman in a man's world and there's this whole self-congratulatory tone to it like "Look how hard it was in them sexist times.  They didn't understand what a woman is capable of."  And it's bizarre because yes, things are better now.  But I wouldn't call them sexist times completely gone, either.

Just something that bugged me.

I don't really have anything in depth to say, I just wanted to mention it.

I thought it was fine, and there were some cute moments, but it was... maybe not as good as word around the internets suggested to me?  I liked the characters fine, but the dialogue was clunky and very 'tell' more than 'show' and that sort of lowered the quality of the whole experience.

I didn't think it was in any way on Avengers level, is what I'm saying.
potentiality_26: (longmire)
Title: The Miracle Dog
Fandom: Agents of SHIELD (Marvel Cinematic Universe)/Longmire/The Walt Longmire Mysteries
Pairing/Characters: Buddy, Henry Standing Bear, Omar Rhoades, Walt Longmire
Summary: Apparently, the dog shouldn't really be alive.  But he is.
Rating: PG
Length: Very Short (388 words)
Disclaimer: None of the characters you might recognize are mine.
Notes/Warnings: Though I'm sure I recall Ward's camp being in Wyoming, I don't remember if the setting was any more specific than that, and thus have no idea how much geography I'm hand-waving for this crossover. It's just something I wanted to try. I'm also sort of straddling book and tv canons for Longmire, as I am apparently wont to do.  I really just wanted to save Buddy, you guys. So I did.
Excerpt: Walt eyed the vet. “Well, if nobody takes him when he’s well enough to go to the shelter, I suppose the sheriff’s department could find use for a canine officer.”

A Thought

I've been looking at a few fic writing memes recently.  It'll be a few months before I break down and do one, most likely, but looking through some of the questions did get me thinking.  One question in particular- asking the writer to say which of their fics was most popular or well liked- interested me.  When an author writes in multiple fandoms, some larger than others, it gets difficult to judge popularity, because it so obviously has more to do with the popularity of the fandom than the popularity of the fic.

Contains me counting kudos and generally waxing philosophical; feel free to give it a miss )

In related news- how often does your muse get inspired based on what you're doing that particular day?  It's possible that's where the first coffee shop AU came from- but to stay on topic, I took my dog to the vet, which to my brain equaled: "You want to write a veterinarian AU for your current main fandom."   Nice going, brain.  I needed that.

My shows...

So, I ended up watching four shows premiering this year from beginning to end, which is really sort of unprecedented for me.  Anyway, some of them finished their seasons quite a while ago, but I wanted to post on them all at once.

So, without further ado:

Agents of SHIELD )

Almost Human- warning: my opinion was not always favorable )

While I'm on the subject of SF, though.  I want a sci-fi show, you guys.  Specifically, I want space ships.  I want aliens and ships in space.  It's part of why I'm so unenthused by this Stargate reboot news.  For one thing, I'm tired reboots, but mainly- I didn't like early Stargate all that much.  When I think of Stargate, I think of the huge world they built over the seasons, with the Asgard and the Wraith and the Ancients.  I love all the cool tech they accumulated.  I love the fact that these characters started out as regular 20th centuries humans and became part of this giant universe.  How can anyone expect me to be excited about them taking it all away again?  In the movie, the universe was tiny, and it's not what I want to see.  I want them add more to what they built, not knock it all down again.

Anyway, moving on.

The Blacklist )

Sleepy Hollow )
potentiality_26: (agents of shield)
Title: Happy Anniversary
Fandom: Agents of SHIELD/The Avengers (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
Pairing/Characters: Clint Barton/Phil Coulson; mentions of Bruce Banner, FitzSimmons and Nick Fury
Summary: Director Coulson tends not to make it to dinner, so Clint brings dinner to him.
Rating: PG
Length: Short (1,157 words)
Disclaimer: These lovely characters are not mine!
Notes/Warnings: This was written for the older_not_dead promptathon 17 prompt "anniversary dinner"
Excerpt: Clint rolled his eyes and put the bag in the machine by the front desk. The machine was way cooler than a metal detector. It was Asgard tech, specifically designed to identify weapons. Forks only got past it some of the time, which puzzled Clint. When it did detect something, the machine started screeching like it was Ragnarok, and since that would pretty much ruin Clint’s evening he had decided to forgo utensils altogether this time around.

Favorite birds of a feather flock together couple:

Not really my thing, I have to say.  Take the Marvel universe, for example.  I can see where people are coming from, liking Clint/Natasha or Fitzsimmons, but though I don't dislike those pairings, I don't really ship them either.  Even if the two characters I ship are ultimately pretty similar, there has to be some kind of balance between strengths and weaknesses for me to like the pairing.  Someone who is outgoing and someone who isn't.  Someone who takes everything seriously and someone who is a little more carefree.  Clint and Natasha are ultimately pretty different, but they still have a very similar core as characters, and that makes it hard for me to see them.  Much is made of Fitz and Simmons basically being one person, and I was pretty floored when the show started to push a romantic plotline for them- at least for Fitz.  I thought he liked Skye, for one thing, and his relationship with Simmons seemed very brother/sister-y in the beginning.  Also, I do much prefer her with Triplet.

The rest of the meme )
potentiality_26: (agents of shield)
Series that you have many ships in:

The Marvel Cinematic Universe counts as a series, right?  It totally counts as a series.  I have a lot of ships in that.  I like quite a few canon couples (I'm enjoying Skye/Ward messiness on Agents of SHIELD immensely, and I love Pepper/Tony lots) but also a lot of non-canon ones.  I love Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, even though I don't really get where it came from- I mean, they talk to each other for like two seconds in Thor and that's it, right?  (Maybe it's a comics thing.  All I know about the comics I know from fanfiction.)  I love Loki/Thor and Bucky/Steve too, and I also have a fondness for Steve/Tony.  I'll also read Darcy Lewis/most anyone because I love her (but particularly Bruce Banner because it's so perfect).

I'm moving on to a shiny Shipping Meme, which should be fun.  I'm going to try to post every day this month, but we'll see how that goes.  But first, two brief spoilery things from my shows.

Agents of SHIELD )

The Blacklist )
potentiality_26: (profit)
Two things, not really spoiler-y.

1) Adrian Pasdar!  Adrian, my love!  Why don't you play good guys no more?  Not that you ever played very many good guys, but once in a while would be nice.

2) Triplet.  Aww, can we keep him?  We can keep him, right?  Imma be mad if we can't.

I saw Captain America: the Winter Soldier over the weekend, but I thought I'd withhold commenting until I saw Agents of SHIELD this week.  I liked Captain America (he's my favorite Avenger, BTW) a lot, but I don't have much to say other than that it gave me all the Steve/Bucky feels, and I may actually be driven to write some fic on the subject.

About Agents of SHIELD, though... (here there be head-scratching and speculation; feel free to steer clear)

Major spoilers for the newest ep, and by extension Captain America TWS )
potentiality_26: (sleepy hollow)
I'm caught up on all my new shows!  And I even saw The Day of the Doctor!  It is a momentous occasion (for me) and we'll see if I can maintain this (I probably can't).  I haven't seen tonight's Almost Human, but that doesn't constitute a backlog, so there.

Agents of SHIELD )

The Blacklist )

The Day of the Doctor )

Sleepy Hollow )

Non-spoilery question for those more active in Doctor Who than me: is there an LJ Comm for Doctor Who/other fandom crossovers- maybe specifically with a character from said other fandom as a companion?  It seems like there should be (and if there isn't there should be) and I may be, possibly- reluctantly- writing a fic.

I'm sure I'll find somewhere to post when/if I finish regardless; I'm just curious.
potentiality_26: (castle)
Spoiler levels will vary, since in some cases I'm still not quite current, but just to be safe.

Grew on me exponentially as soon as they started working as a team.  I'm glad I stuck with it.
potentiality_26: (daniel)
This is the first time since... like... Enterprise.

It was Agents of Shield and I'm not really going to go into detail but- yeah, not what I hoped for.  Not bad, by any stretch, but not great.  Melinda May is awesome, tough and competent and all around great.  I'm pretty sure I would happily watch her doing just about anything.  And of course I like Coulson, though his quips seemed a bit... off here.  The others don't jump out at you right off the bat the way that- say- the ensemble of Firefly does, but they're fine.

It just lacks... something.  I'm not sure what, but it lacks it.
