The Lobster Trailer  
As a single person in her mid-30s, this movie's satire about what society does to single people of a certain age speaks to me. Also, hello, Ben Whishaw!

I love how British movies rejoice in putting as many British people in their British movies as they British can. Although, considering they only have, like five actors, I guess they don't have any choice.

Also, this is looks weird and delightful.

Animals!:

It must be awful to be the only British actor left out. It's a cold, cold isolated world when you're that actor.

Cam and Sid discussing something

Hee!

Sid: Once you climb in through the window, simply turn the lock so we can get in.
Cam: Isn't breaking into someone's house against law?
Sid: Do you hear that?
Cam: What?
Sid: A baby is in distress. I hear it crying.
Cam: I don't hea-
Sid: We must act quickly! Climb up and unlock the door!

How I imagine Issie and Betti played when Betti was little

I love how the puppy is all, "I am fierce! Tremble before me!" while the very patient dog is all, "Yes. You are. Yes."

There's probably a rotation.

"Is Bob not here?"
"No, Bob is going to be the in the next one, and Alice is going to sit out."
"Oh, that's fair, I suppose."


Cam: I don't hea-
Sid: We must act quickly! Climb up and unlock the door!


Hahaha! I can totally see Sid and Sherlock using Cam's ability to shift to their advantage.

Sid: You simply turn into a beetle, wiggle under the door, then turn into a bird, fly up to get the key hidden behind the clock, and turn into a monkey to open the window and drop it down to Sherlock.
Cam: I don't know. Maybe Winnie should ask Joan, first.
Sid: Watson left Winnie in Sherlock's care. He can make decisions.
Cam: She said it was just because she had no other choice, though.
Sid: Yes, but she made the choice, and so now we will use it to our best advantage. Off you go.

I love how the puppy is all, "I am fierce! Tremble before me!" while the very patient dog is all, "Yes. You are. Yes."

This totally matches up with my images of JJ being like 'look how strong I am!' and Steve going 'wow, you sure are strong, buddy', while gently supporting whatever object with one finger so JJ thinks he's holding it.

In other semi-related 'unnecessary kid verses', I totally accidentally gave Angie and Bond a love child. It went something like 'hmm, wedding meme for Bond and Angie? No, they probably wouldn't get married unless she was pregnant and--no, don't go there, stop, stop!'. And... now I am sympathetic to what happened with you and Winnie, because my brain is simultaneously going 'no, don't start this!' and 'wow, this makes total sense! *headcanons merrily*'.

I imagine calls when Sherlock, Sid, Winnie and Cam all get picked up by the police for breaking and entering.

Shess: I'm going to kill that squirrel.
Sid: This only means a better education on disabling the silent alarm sys-OW!
Ziyad: I'll peck you in the eye next time.

Steve going 'wow, you sure are strong, buddy', while gently supporting whatever object with one finger so JJ thinks he's holding it.

This totally reminds me of your headcanon of Thor having JJ and Winnie take turns lifting Mjolnir while keeping his hand under theirs to actually lift the thing.

because my brain is simultaneously going 'no, don't start this!' and 'wow, this makes total sense! *headcanons merrily*'.

Yup. That is the slippery slope that you end up sliding down and falling into a Puddle of Headcanon. I was weirdly glad when it was recently announced Lucy Liu had a newborn son. If it had been a daughter, I would have headcanoned to death.

Ha! Oh man, I can just see cheerful eight-year-old Winnie swinging her legs back and forth on the chair in the police station, while Cam has feelings that maybe they shouldn't have found this as fun as they did.

And somewhere in the Rogers' household...

Steve: Bucky's just sent me a weird text.
Nora: What does it say?
Steve: Something about Winnie being arrested.
Nora: That can't be right. Must be an autocorrect thing.
Steve: Yeah, probably.

This totally reminds me of your headcanon of Thor having JJ and Winnie take turns lifting Mjolnir while keeping his hand under theirs to actually lift the thing.

There must have been an earth shattering moment when JJ and Winnie grew up enough to realize they weren't actually worthy tiny badasses.

Yep. I have her whole life planned out. She's a ballerina. She marries a SHIELD agent. Bond continues his life as normal, and drops in and out while Angie lives with Peggy, who helps raise her until Peggy gets married. There are pins. I don't even know.

Hee! Yeah, I was thinking that myself. He's a cutie, though. I thought he was adopted, but I'm reading now that he was actually born through a surrogate.

Winnie: Daddy! They take your fingersprints when you get arrested. They said I was too young for that but can I do it anyway? Can I?
Bucky: I'm never leaving her with you again.
Sherlock: Until the pointless arrest, it was very educational excursion.

As a favor, Marcus Bell probably fingerprints Winnie and lets her take the fingerprint sheet home with her.

I don't even know.

The lament for so many of us when headcanons just fall from the skies.

Yup, surrogate. And Rockwell is adorable.

Winnie: See? Those are my fingerprints! Isn't that cool?!
JJ: Isn't getting arrested bad?
Winnie: But...fingerprints!
JJ: *conflicted* I wish I had fingerprints...

So much headcanon. I have memes done. All the memes. All of them.

She looks like this if you're curious. And her daemon is a brown mouse lemur.


Yup, surrogate. And Rockwell is adorable.


Rockwell is a pretty awesome name, too.

Nora and Tyr (probably drawn by Steve)

Nora: It's nice you gave me a good hair day.
Steve: *confused* Your hair always looks good.
Nora: The fact that you mean that is really touching.



formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on September 8th, 2015 11:01 pm (UTC)
Aww! This is adorable. I imagine Steve absently drawing quick sketches of Nora on napkins and coasters during the early days of them dating.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on September 9th, 2015 12:19 am (UTC)
Aww, yeah. It takes a while for him to realize he likes her, so I like the idea of him sketching her absently and continuing to deny that he has a crush on her.

Issie: You did her nose wrong.
Steve: Did I? I think it looks okay.
Issie: No, you're still really bad at her nose. You should fix it.
Steve: It's fine. It's just a sketch.
Issie: Do it better.
Steve: You don't have hands, you don't get to criticize.
Issie: If I had hands, I'd use them to fix her nose.
Steve: *grabs a new napkin*

Hee! I love how pushy Issie can be with Steve.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on September 9th, 2015 12:40 am (UTC)
That's the terrier temperament. They are very tiny and determined. Ascii has this thing where she will sit and stare at you until you do what she wants, but if you take slightly too long, she gets in a huff and snorts and tosses her head, and throws herself in a corner, like 'fine, I didn't even WANT to go for a walk'.

In the daemons verse, Issie would be the one who decides Steve should ask Nora out.

Issie: Ask her today, when you go in and get your book.
Steve: I don't know if she likes me.
Issie: but if you asked her to walk out with you, you'd know then!
Steve: Or I'd look like an idiot.
Issie: Tyr says Nora likes hot chocolate. Ask her if she wants hot chocolate.
Steve: But--
Issie: Hot chocolate!

She's like a little drill sergeant!

Bucky and Shess in the modern world just tend to dither about things like that until they usually come to the agreement they should just go home.

Shess: Zed and Joan invited us. We should probably go. Letty and Sam are always saying we need to get out more.
Bucky: We're out now.
Shess: They meant with other people.
Bucky: Do we have to?
Shess: ...No.
Bucky: Maybe next time.
Shess: You should text Joan and tell her. It's polite.
Bucky: Now you sound like Steve *texts*

I have a thing in an unposted meme somewhere where Steve mentions Nora telling him he had to stop using his Captain America voice with JJ when asking him to do something, even though Steve doesn't know what his Captain America voice sounds like and doesn't know he's using it.


Shess: They meant with other people.
Bucky: Do we have to?
Shess: ...No


Haha! Me too, guys, me too.

For all Issie is a drill sergeant, I imagine Nora and Tyr take a lot of initiative in the relationship. Their first date is a lot of Steve going 'do they still do this anymore?' And Nora being very charmed by his chair pulling and coat giving, and waiting to make sure she gets into her apartment okay.

Nora: *at home* That was the best date I've ever been on!
Tyr: I know!

Steve: How do you think it went?
Issie: *optimistically* Probably really okay!
Steve: Oh, good.
