Thank you to everyone who sent me birthday wishes!

I've had a nice day so far.  I went out for lunch with some friends and now I'm looking forward to a quiet night in. 

H/C Bingo

Sorry I've been absent for... like... ever.  I'll try to get better about posting again.  For now, here's my new H/C bingo card:

My hc_bingo card )

It's... kind of same-y, isn't it?  A lot of the prompts seem related or similar to me, and I'm not bothered by that because I think I might try to do a 25-in-1 since they all go together so well.  It'll be interesting to see if I can make it work.

I have- I think- successfully set up my LJ flist as a feed on DW, but we'll have to see if it actually works or not!

Update: nope, not working :(
potentiality_26: (kingsman)
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?

On LJ my "login cookie" keeps disappearing whenever I try to make a comment.  Is that happening to anyone else?

I'm still figuring out certain aspects of DW, but as a platform I like it very much and I plan to try to use it more regularly.

I'm not going to delete my LJ (assuming that LJ doesn't delete me and none of the other things people are worried about come to pass) but I do plan to slowly transition to DW- especially once I figure out how to read my LJ flist there in addition to crossposting!  (I gather it can be done, the instructions just looked so technical that I've put it off a few times already.) 

I promise to keep up with you all as best I can, whatever happens!

Okay, then

Well, LJ's slightly creepy new TOS was the reminder I needed to back up on DW again. 

I'm glad that I did it, but the comments didn't seem to import this time.  Is anyone else having that problem? 
potentiality_26: (kingsman)
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.

Well, I finished the first season of Into the Badlands.  I love it every bit as much as I did at the beginning- great plot, great characters, and it's so, so, so pretty!

I'm sad that it doesn't seem to be more popular, and I'm extra sad that I won't be able to see season two for a while.

It's so good, people.  Check it out if you can!
potentiality_26: (stargate)
I just started Into the Badlands.  I've only seen one episode but I really like it so far.

I complain all the time about how over dystopias I am, but give me a ultra-bright color scheme and suddenly I am into it.  I think a good 75% of my boredom with gritty/grimdark is literally just if they look gritty, grim, and dark.  You can sell me on so much just by making it pretty and colorful.

(And seriously guys- Into the Badlands is the prettiest and colorfulest) 

Junk mail?

potentiality_26: (doctor who)
My email has rather randomly decided that all emails from LJ are junk.

I can find them quite easily in the junk folder, so it's not that big of a problem, I just don't understand why it suddenly happened.

I went to see Kong: Skull Island.  I thought it was really good.  It's one of a relatively small number of reboot/reimaginings I've seen since the craze started that seemed like it actually had something new and interesting to say.  Even though it was set in the 70's it felt very timely, and it did a lot of things right that King Kong movies normally do wrong.

Also Tom Hiddleston was gorgeous.  I definitely recommend it.

My icons

potentiality_26: (stargate)
I'm working on making some multi-fandom icons because I feel like the ones I have should reflect what I'm into a little bit more (I don't have a paid account, and with only 15 you gotta make 'em count, and like... I haven't seen Sleepy Hollow or Agents of SHIELD in forever), so I'm going to work on a whole batch.  I'm definitely getting much better at icon making than I was.

Anyway, I'm mainly working on ones from Shadowhunters, Lucifer, and Kingsman.  If anyone has any prompts or suggestions (pairings, character + color and/or text combos, etc.) let me know!

My shows

Designated Survivor is back!  It came back last week and I didn't realize, so I had two to watch.  I have a complicated relationship with this show, but I'm still interested to see where it goes next.

Designated Survivor )

And speaking of shows I have a complicated relationship with...

Shadowhunters )

So Shadowhunters isn't coming back until June apparently and Lucifer isn't coming back until May?  What is that about?  Why are there suddenly going to be spring hiatus' and shows during the summer?

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.

Possibly this is obvious, but does anyone know where the actual LJ login page is?

I've always used the little login bubble at the top of my page, which my newly updated Firefox keeps telling me isn't secure.  I always new it probably wasn't, but I guess now is as good a time as any to figure out what I'm actually supposed to be doing.

So I'm sure the new "quick comments" feature has it's charms- it's probably convenient and all- but it's like they genuinely want this site to look just like tumblr or facebook.

I feel that my doubts about the "like" button have been borne out.  It's not really a very good way to communicate "Hey I've seen your post but I don't really have anything to in particular to say" when the person whose post you're liking has no idea who you are in the first place.

I saw Logan.  I thought it was really good, if a little hard to watch in places.

You could really tell that since Deadpool did well despite an R rating the studios decided they could just do whatever they wanted, which... Well, I think it's a good thing in the sense that "PG-13 on a technicality" movies are sort of uncomfortable for me (as if the lack of blood splatters or whatever makes a high body count somehow more okay than otherwise), but on the other hand X-Men has always had a bit of a tone problem- with one movie in the series always radically different from another- and I don't think this is going to help.  Like are they just going to pretend they never made a movie like this the next time they want to do a more classic X-Men movie? Because you know they will eventually.  And when they have Magneto moving the latest famous landmark with dramatic hand gestures, it's going to be rather silly in comparison to this.

Anyway, it was really great to see an X-Men movie really work through the consequences and logical next steps to the kind of things that typically happen in these movies, and I'd recommend seeing it as long as you know it's going to be really different than usual.   I just kind of doubt that the people behind these films will really want to honor those decision going forward.
