Was she really that delusional? )

I think sometimes, when I start writing in a fandom, I start by writing fic that is almost meta. It's like I'm trying the characters out, seeing how the relationships that I see inside my head comes out on paper.

It's also often wish-fulfillment fic.

Not that this is coming up now for any particular reason or anything.

(As a side note, I sort of wish that it was still that time in my life when I didn't even *think* to look at articles about actors, or see quotes from them, or ridiculously cute set photos. I think that stuff gets in the way of my pure and unadulterated shipping. /grumpy old fan moment)

I've been meaning to write some thoughts down since I watched Iron Man 3 for the first time--then I decided it was better to just go and see it again so I could really pay attention. And then the next day my friend wanted to go see it, so that happened.

Then I kept getting distracted by gifs on tumblr.

So, without further ado, thoughts! There are many of them. SO MANY.

No, really. SO MANY. )

Is it weird that I have so many thoughts about a summer superhero movie?

Probably. Oh well.

I almost got mauled by a dog today, and I think it shows how strange I am because I kind of count that as a highlight. I mean, if I'd actually gotten mauled by a dog it would have been terrible, but as it is, I get to count it as a win. "Hey! I didn't get mauled by a dog today! What a fantastic day!"

(Okay, so the actual danger level was very low. There was just a very defensive dog off its leash in the neighborhood and it DID NOT LIKE STRANGE WOMAN IN ITS TERRITORY.)

The rest of the day wasn't bad either. We've been having fabulously warm spring weather the last few days. Sunday was the warmest 3/31 of record. Ever. By something like 6 degrees. I wore a pretty dress and did my hair in a french braid (myself!) and wore makeup and jewelry and sandals and looked TOTALLY cute.

(Best compliment: "I didn't recognize you. You look so beautiful!" This was followed by a horrified look from the complimentor, and I assured her I wouldn't take it amiss.)

Anyway, the weather today was great, and my boss took us all out for lunch and I got to do a fun project and complain about ridiculous form requirements from the home office. YAY.

I also just saw the 100th ep of Castle, which was spoilers! )

Other things which I am excited about: Iron Man 3. STILL. [personal profile] splash_the_cat has been keeping me extremely squeeful on tumblr by reposting lots of Tony and Pepper gifs. I always want to reblog them and hardly ever do because I'm PRETTY sure I don't have enough unique followers to justify reblogging 8,000,000 Tony/Pepper gifs.

:-)

I'm also re-reading Pride and Prejudice. *happy sighs* I really like how Lizzie doesn't show up as a main character right away--though I think that actually frustrated me when I first tried to read it.

I'm... disappointed that goodreads is being bought by amazon. I don't use it a lot, but I don't really want a one-store platform. Bah.

1. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries: I will never quit you. What? THERE'S ONLY ONE MORE EPISODE? That sucks.

2. I am re-watching the BBC Pride and Prejudice. These things might be related.

3. Once Upon a Time! How did you manage to become My New Thing? There is still so much wrong with you. But I apparently don't care.

4. I got spoiled for something related to Iron Man 3. Really, not a Big Thing, but a very fun thing. Oops? There's really no way I could have avoided it, I know. Not unless I cut myself off from all internet-related fun for the next month or so. That wasn't going to happen.

So there was spontaneous pumpkin carving on Sunday. Here's what I did:



It's slightly modified from the actual design, because my pumpkin was on the small side, and my knife was a little too big for the detail work.

I'm still pleased with it. :-)

I finally (!) went to see Iron Man 2 last night, racing over to the other side of town and winding up at the theater in perfect time to get into a relatively early and empty showing.

I don't know how much people want outside of a cut, but my three word summary is "fun and flawed." Below the cut are other, more disorganized thoughts. You have been warned.

more thoughts about it )

I know there's more thoughts, but that's going to have to be it for now.

Yesterday I went home from work early, a good move since I spent the rest of the afternoon either trying to sleep (failure) or feeling miserable and sorry for myself, or, actually, both. I went to bed at seven, and woke up just after 11 pm with a fever of 100 F, Madonna stuck in my head, and jealousy about the fact that people all over the country were already watching Iron Man 2.

I'm looking at you, [livejournal.com profile] besyd.

Anyway, my fever has gone down since then, and I feel better, but am staying at home to rest. Maybe I'll try watching Iron Man again today, as yesterday I kept getting distracted by having to blow my nose. (I also watched The Aviator, which was a bad move when sick, I think--it seemed interminable.)

I apologize for the blurry pics; I am not a photographer and also the lighting in my room sucks. I took these while also pointing a lamp at my very patient actors. *g*

Yeah. I don't normally do the whole "I got this" bragging thing, but I have to this year, because I got the following items:

1. A broadsword.
2. A riding crop (it's not exactly what you'd think, only it's sort of complicated and a joke. I think.
3. A digital picture frame.
4. ACTION FIGURE TONY.
5. ACTION FIGURE SAM.

That's right. I now have Tony and Sam to keep each other and Vala company. Can we say threesome? Action figure Tony's armor snaps on and off, and Sam is the series two one with the green, the piece of the 'gate, the P-90, and she's PERFECT.

I may have let out a bit of a high pitched squeal when I unwrapped her. You know that gift my roommate was wrapping for me while I sat there? SAM. Yes.

Because I said so, that's why!

So...here are seven theories I have about Tony and Pepper:

theories )

Feel free to tell me I'm wrong in comments, or write me fic. :-)

Speaking of fic...

Fic--closet almost-smut fluff )

*_*_*_*_*


Also, I have decided that I can probably make better soup than the crap I had for lunch today. Mostly because I think there's not enough sodium in it.

There are NO SPOILERS at all below the cut, unless you count reactions as spoilers. And even then there's no reaction to the premiere for Heroes--just a general sort of reaction about the show as a whole.

Iron Man, Heroes, X-Files, SVU, Bollywood, and Fanfic )

Have I spammed you all enough yet?
