I'VE JUST SEEN THE AVENGERS MOVIE. WHO WANTS TO TOUCH ME?

I SAID

WHO WANTS TO FUCKING TOUCH ME?

Allow me to summarise my feelings.

Waking up this morning:


In the queue to watch The Avengers:

It is the best movie I have ever seen on a cinema screen.

My sister and I went for dinner on Friday night because I was feeling particularly bummed, and I found myself a little distracted courtesy of the sight before my eyes while I was eating said dinner.

Cut for Sherlock fangirling, though no, it wasn't *actually* them. )

Misha posted baby pics!

Say goodbye to your ovaries! )

P.S. This picture now makes up 20/30 of my flist's posts. STILL NOT TIRED OF IT.

P.P.S. Momentary srs bznss, on account of having seen a few instances of people being snippy to each other elsewhere; as far as I'm concerned, whether you like babies or not is entirely up to you. For the record, I think they're adorable and intend to make (or adopt) a few when I'm older, but my "OMGBABIES <3 <3 <3" does not also mean "And you are scum if you don't feel the same way D:<".

P.P.P.S. I've been absolutely exhausted the past few weeks and unable to pin down why; it just occurred to me. My diet has changed. I've been experimenting with eating breakfast instead of waiting until dinner before eating. Dear body, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

This is a long, weird post. Just warning you all. Grab a cup of tea and a biscuit <3.

First off, a rec for one of the best things ever, and the inspiration for this post:

Harbor by [personal profile] irisbleufic; John/Sherlock, R/light NC17; sequel to Drowning Man, which was also fabulous.

This is the best story I have read in months. Possibly years. Your mileage may vary, everyone has different tastes, but I have never been happier with the use of emotion in a fic that I can recall - as I said, definitely not in months, and possibly not in years. And I read and adore (and I do mean adore) a lot of fic.

But there's a very real reason for this one, and it's weird and bizarre but true; it's because it's how I imagine (excepting for the specific circumstances, I'm scarcely a war veteran Doctor or a sociopathic consultant detective) my love story will finally go, should it happen, because I've almost been there before, with tensions lining up just right - unfortunately, it's yet to happen with someone I'm both attracted to and love as a person rather than an idea. It's that feeling of tensions lining up that [personal profile] irisbleufic absolutely nails, spot on. I hope someday I find the Sherlock to my John, or the John to my Sherlock.

Bizarrely, and completely unintentionally, that story just gave me a boost in my faith in love and eventually finding it, at a time when I've rarely needed it more. It's something where I can't really thank the author enough - or at all, because again, it was unintentional! Just a side-effect, one of those curious ones acting as proof that art and prose is always worthwhile because you can never, ever predict the effect one image or one set of words will have on each indivdual member of an audience.

~ ~ ~ Wavy lines time, it's a flashback to my not-quite-romances! )

So, yes; the long ramble and whole point to the post is this; sometimes I get a little lonely, and I wonder if I'll ever fall in love. If I'll ever know that feeling of wanting to be with someone, and knowing they want to be with me, and waiting for one of us to find the moment to act on it, and this time it not end in my realising I'm basically straight/am not in love with them, just desperately attracted to them/missing out on the chance to act.

And this fic gives me hope, really, really, silly hope, that someday all the waiting will be worthwhile. Benedict Cumberbatch is about nine years older than me, Martin Freeman about 14 ;), and if I have to wait nine years for my John or fourteen years for my Sherlock - well, damnit, it'll be worth the wait <3. Hell, I'm even looking forward to it again.

[my mum took me, my sis, my l'il brother and herself to see it tonight at 8.50pm as a cheer-up surprise for us all :D, and for all that I'm up at 6am and planned on having an early night tonight, I REGRET NOTHING. Or, indeed, JE NE REGRETTE RIEN)

Dear Christopher Nolan,

You may not be my type, but right now I need you inside me.

(Also, damn Joseph Gordon-Levitt, I remember having a crush on you when I was little and you have grown up FINE. You may join in on the being inside me shenanigans. In fact, I encourage it.)

FILM. OF. THE. DECADE.

Guys, seriously, you know how everyone's going on about this film? If you haven't seen it, make time to. It's not world-changing cinema but good God it's the best crafted thing I've seen in years. There were moments where my jaw was literally hanging open. I am awed by how perfectly pulled off the film was. There are some brief moments of repetition but they work inside the dreamscape and the whole sequence revolving around Joseph G-L's character in the middle of the movie is absolutely stunning.

I refuse to say anything more about it because I walked into that movie not knowing the plot and having a movie that respects you as an audience without deliberately confusing you to the point of not knowing what's going on is a blessing everyone should enjoy. It was so, so, so good.

I won't be fandoming this one. It's just. It's in a class of its own.

ETA: Spoilers in the comments to this post.
emeraldembers: (Gen - rainbows and smiles)
GO WATCH ROBIN HOOD. NOW.

No, seriously, I mean it. Do not read my review until you've seen the movie. I want you to go see it with all your current thoughts and feelings about the movie, all your hesitance, all your wariness. I want you to go in not expecting to feel about this movie the way I do now.

I mean it. Watch the movie, THEN feel free to click this. Oh man, it isn't so much a review as a recap of everything I remember about the movie. Spoilers ahoy. )

SUPERNATURAL 5X10 CASTING AND EPISODE TITLE SPOILER

WELL OH MY GOD I WILL NOT BE SLEEPING TONIGHT FOR NUMEROUS REASONS MOST OF WHICH WILL REVOLVE AROUND MY THOUGHTS ON THE ABOVE

However, due to the complete absence of any free time at work AT ALL at the moment (thank you I.T. systems for cutting off all call-taking for the largest call centre so the rest of us are getting regular queues of twenty to thirty minutes) I am way behind on [profile] springkink claim-noting :(. Therefore unless REALLY EPIC PORN or REALLY EPIC LULZ are involved, pleasepleaseplease don't bug me for anything this week because it's the only way I'm going to catch up. Also, if you see me anywhere I shouldn't be during this period (cough Mishaland cough) from tomorrow until Sunday, unless I post here saying I'm caught up on Springkink, give me a smack upside the head. * ETA: Obviously meeting up with [profile] fahrenheit_f430 on Saturday classes as both REALLY EPIC PORN (discussion) and REALLY EPIC LULZ (in general) so that's still okay. OKAY.

In other news, last night I dreamt I was buying a hamster for [profile] fahrenheit_f430 and while I was looking through the various cages to find a cheap but decent cage for the hamster (which I was... holding, after buying it, because my hands are clearly the safest places for hamster storage... though that said they are rather spacious man-hands with pretty fingernails OKAY DISTRACTING MYSELF STOP IT) a bunny sat on my bare foot and was very warm and snuggly but a bit inconvienient, so I chased the bunny only to find it had been trimming my toenails with its teeth, and very neatly at that, so I walked back over to the bunny and let it sit on my feet again.

DEAR SIGMUND FREUD: WHY WAS A BUNNY TRIMMING MY TOENAILS?

OH MY GOD

INGLORIOUS BASTERDS IS GLORIOUS.

My goodness. So slow to start (but in an awesome the Good, the Bad and the Ugly deliberate tension sort of way) and then it gets funnier, and nuttier, and funnier, and nuttier, and then THE ENDING. THE EPIC, EPIC ENDING.

Seriously the ONLY films I've loled harder at on first viewing are The Spongebob Squarepants Movie (DON'T YOU DARE JUDGE ME) and the latest Rambo movie (... okay I'll let you judge me on that one but SERIOUSLY HE SHOOTS UP A BOAT AND A TRUCK AND ABOUT 283472983749273424208309428032342342 SOLDIERS AND IT IS AMAZING).

Absolutely insane. Oh, Quentin Tarantino, you are an odd little person and it's very obvious that movies are a playground for your twisted imagination but I cannot judge you for it.

ALSO I WAS UNCOMFORTABLY ATTRACTED TO ELI ROTH IN A ZACHARY QUINTO SORT OF WAY. THIS IS WEIRD AND UNCOMFORTABLE AS I KIND OF HATE HIS MOVIES AND HIS CHARACTER WAS PRETTY MUCH 50% IDIOT 50% EVIL BUT I LOVED HIM ANYWAY. WHAT.

ETA: Movie aside, the day was kind of awesome for me in general (sorry [profile] fahrenheit_f430, I know yours was lame before we met up!):

1. I woke up before my alarm went off :D, so I didn't begrudge any loss of a lie-in (which is kind of unsurprising given I went to bed about 10pm last night after drinking milk, the one thing guaranteed to make me pass out, and I woke up 11.25am).
2. I washed my hair so I got to smell lovely all day :D, even if it has gone super-froofy due to my not putting any gel on it (I can never be bothered in summer given my hair needs washing again so soon; hair maintenance is for winter!).
3. My copy of Death Race arrived in the post :D! So I can watch that later. Hooray for carnage!
4. On the train into town the CUTEST THING EVER happened - there was a not-quite-toddler lad, probably about five or six, and he was fussing over his baby brother, and he pulled his baby brother's dummy out of his mouth to give him a quick peck on the lips before giving him back the dummy and I was just all AWWWWWW.
5. I got my eyebrows threaded again \m/.
6. I met up with [profile] ilovedoyle completely by accident in town :D and we had a great ramble about J2 and Jared's awesomely cute dorkiness.
7. I then met up with [profile] fahrenheit_f430 and we had a deliiiiicious sushi lunch. And there was a girl there with beautiful hair! I had to tell her how gorgeous it was, I know curls are a git to get under control. Also, I think the sushi chef guys are starting to recognise me XD, because I swear every time I go in the Chicken Katsu Curry gets better. Unf! OH. And the white chocolate and toffee dessert they do? I don't normally do toffee but THAT IS EPIC. I may have to investigate the exotic one at some point although I'm hesitant given fruit doesn't tend to agree with me so well.
8. We then went to see above GLORIOUS MOVIE.
9. After said GLORIOUS MOVIE went to have a quick drink and got accosted by a slightly spiffed gentleman who was flirting his head off with us both, although neither of us was particularly in the mood XD, so I gave him a hug before we headed off to Eddie Rockets where, as ever, the milkshakes were awesome :D.
10. And then I bought cheap plums :D :D and headed home.
