I got to see it opening weekend here (yay!) and I’m a little disappointed there was no promotional postcard given out like I got for Pacific Rim and The Force Awakens. Come on! We got it a whole week later than the rest of the world- no goodies? :(

It was awesome anyway- I laughed, I cringed, I cried. I didn’t expect the latter- GotG doesn’t take itself that seriously so I didn’t expect to be moved to tears not once but twice. The emotional scenes were really well done too- I loved the character/relationship arcs and the continuing theme of found family. Plus the execution was great, with fun camera angles and pretty graphics and the way the music meshed. Baby Groot was especially adorable! Spoilers! )All in all, a great sequel that both built on and added depth to the story and characters from the first GotG. Anybody see it in 3D? I’m debating going into town next week to see it in 3D if it’s worth the additional cost. (Local theater doesn’t have a subbed version in 3D.)

I feel a little bad because there aren't many fandoms/ships in the exchange that I'm fannish about, but I got a wonderful gift in a smaller space fandom, so yay!

Here it is!

What it Takes to Survive- (Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora&Nebula, Gamora&Peter Quill, T, 1183 words, Self-harm)
Five times Gamora's heart hardened and one time it was soft.


I love how meta-y this 5+1 is, how thoughtful the characterization and backstory details are! Really hoping the movie runs along the same lines because this is exactly how I read Gamora- she can't help but reach out even though Nebula's snarling with fury and would rather cut her own hand off than reach back.


And one more rec:

where is safety- (Rogue One, K-2SO& Cassian Andor, T, 1765 words)
“Curious.”

The teenager (Andor, Cassian. Second Lieutenant. Intelligence operative for the Alliance to Restore the Republic) looks up. His face remains impassive. His dark eyes catalogue every movement and sound.

“You do not trust your fellow Rebels, even though you should. Yet, you trust me enough to be your only companion on an Intelligence mission."


K-2 AND CASSIAN BACKSTORY!!! I actually asked for something like this for chocolate box and never got it but now I have read this and am totally satisfied! :DDDD The POV is K-2's and is so perfectly done, as are the steps they take toward friendship and trust over the years. Also the final line will sock you in the gut. <3

Well, if you haven't seen The Last Jedi trailer yet, you've probably been living under some kind of social media-proof rock, but I'm posting it here just in case. LOL 


TLJ spec )

 



International trailers and other promos for GotG2 have also dropped, and the indication that Nebula&Gamora's relationship is going to be a key part of the narrative is making me SOOOO HAPPY! It's what I asked for in [community profile] space_swap  but REAL LIFE!!! :DDDD

More icons and GIFs obviously have to be made! I need to fix up the garden while the weather stays decent though- we're going to get pictures taken of the house this weekend so we can get into the process of selling. *gulp*

To celebrate Women's History Month, here's a meme! I have selected 15 female characters from 15 fandoms. Try to guess who they are from the clues! Fandoms listed in tags, characters chosen are mostly my faves. :)

Guess the character! )

Dear Spacer,

Thanks so much for making something for me! Very excited to participate in this swap!

I’m NRGburst everywhere- here’s my tumblr and AO3 if you want to get a look at things I like. 

I don't usually read: A/B/O, mpreg, modern AUs, crossover/fusions, kidfic.

I’m okay with any amount of romance/sex, from just acknowledging a mutual attraction with barely touching hands to PWP to married.

No non-con, character death or character bashing please.

I prefer things that have lots of female character POV. Missing scenes or canon fix-its are right up my alley! Details like callbacks and parallels make me really happy when I find them in canon, fic or art. I also like scientific/medical realism, worldbuilding details (including acknowledging the social networks characters belong to) and humor. As for tropes: I like happy/hopeful endings, friends to lovers, first/last time, grand sacrifices for others, reunions, and mutual pining.

I adore nicely structured fics. 5+1s, fics with epistolary breaks, intersecting character arcs, etc. And if your work has me analyzing, I will probably comment more than once! 


The Martian details )MCU details (basically Gamora please) )


Hidden Figures )

I think that's it! Feel free to comment via anon if you need clarification/more details. Looking forward to seeing what you make! <3

So much amazing stuff to look forward to! Starwars.com posted a pic of an empty box yesterday and muffled screaming echoed across the world because LOOK AT OUR TRIO IN THE LAST JEDI, GUYS:

GotG 2/May 5th also can't come soon enough! I made these icons mostly from the trailers. Feel free to use them! They're sized for DW- most of them are too big for LJ. Credit/Comment, no hotlinking please.


GotG icons- mostly Baby Groot )

Also The Originals is back in less than a month! Check out the promo poster!

TO poster, icons and spec )


And as of 9 hours ago on twitter, Kylie Bunbury still doesn't know if Pitch will be renewed. *sigh*
breathe mami pitch ginny livan walk

ETA: Tried to cut to save image loading on reading/friend's pages but DW still hates div/cut tag interaction so I apologize for the formatting. *siiigh*
nrgburst: (katherine cessation of hostility)
Since we can upload images to DW now, I have to mess around with it JUST 'CAUSE I CAN. :DDD

Look Ma, no outside linking and auto sizing! (Elsie is pleasantly surprised too!)

To celebrate, I made a few icons. Feel free to snag them if you want! :D The usual no hotlinking, credit/comment please!
