Am I taking breaks from working on my applications to write fic or am I taking breaks from writing fic to work on my applications? Hm.

I got back from my cousin's wedding. It was quite an experience being part of a wedding and in small part seeing what goes on behind the scenes of a rather lavish affair. There were so many near disasters during the rehearsal and during the wedding itself so it was nice that ultimately things were fine and my family now has a new member.

I had vague plans about working on my internship application while away but this did not happen. Instead I did some fic...experimenting?

Okay, I feel a little bad about writing this review (if you can even call it that) because technically I didn't finish this miniseries. I made it through 3 out of 6 episodes before my one month free membership on Netflix ended. And I won't pretend I wasn't ever so slightly relieved that I had a concrete reason why I couldn't keep watching. So quite possibly, some really incredible things could have happened in the last three episodes that would perhaps completely change my take on the show but most likely not.

No spoilersCollapse )

After an extended viewing absence by me, I returned to catch the latest episode of Doctor Who to check out how Capaldi is faring as the latest version of the Time Lord.

No spoilersCollapse )

While I had three other MCU-verse fic that were in the lead for getting done, Zola and Acantha suddenly raced their way to the front of the line. Typical. The fic is a loose sequel to "Become Death, Destroyer of Worlds" and it only confirmed for me that I really like Zola. Not as a person, obviously. He's horrible and deserves a special seat in Hell. But he's so much fun to write. Especially in the daemon-verse. I think it helps that I thought he was well played by Toby Jones. Zola could have easily just been a stock evil scientist but the little expressions Jones throws in (that sliiiiight smirk he has on his face when Phillips informs him Bucky is dead after the train sequence is now 100x more awful) throughout elevate him well above what Red Skull ended up being.

Anyway, in between writing this fic, I flipped through Jones' filmography. He's done a lot of work, not surprisingly. But the range of what he's done is a little surprising. For instance, I didn't know he was the voice of Dobby in the Harry Potter films. I also saw that I'd seen a lot of his work without really knowing it. So I decided to do that actor meme again for him.

After many rumors of film adaptations and tv adaptations, Good Omens is coming to us via a radio drama. No, for real this time. Seriously, it's happening.

Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier is now available for purchase via HD download. You can rent it starting on the 9th. I spent a huge chunk of my Labor Day rewatching it. For...research? Sure. I did see some things or rather, I became much more aware of things the 3rd go around.

Couple of screencaps from the film, nothing too spoileryCollapse )

So this journal is just turning into a MCU journal now it seems...

Anyway, some information about the casting of two characters and the inclusion of one canon character for the Agent Carter series.

It's only a series of snippets but I really liked Grae Drake's interviews with the key members of the Captain America 2 movie. The questions and answers were a nice blend of humor and interesting information. Next to Josh Horowitz's interviewing, this is about the most relaxed I've seen some of these cast members. Also, the fact that Steve Rogers isn't getting any is both logical and really sad.

Taken from awanderingbard:

Give me the name of a character I write or have written and I'll tell you:
- What they are like when they're drunk
- If they have any tattoos/scars/birthmarks
- What frivolous thing makes them really happy
- What stupid thing makes them really annoyed
- Special skills (languages they speak, instruments they play, etc)
- Prized possession(s)
- Medical conditions (allergies, injuries, chronic complaints, etc.)
- Comfort food/activity/object


OCS and AUs welcome, as always. Feel free to ask for a couple of characters.
