So I was just mulling over how weird it is not to have a proper fall/winter/spring TV season anymore. Everything is so spread out! HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO GET AWAY FOR THE SUMMER WITHOUT MISSING GOOD STUFF NOW. JULY IS GOING TO BE FULL OF AWESOME.


GoT spec based on the trailer )

Also, Spiderman: Homecoming

Is it wrong that I am more excited about watching this movie after seeing Tom Holland's epic lip sync battle performance? LOL 

Apologies to those waiting for Sense8 icons! I haven't forgotten- I'm partly done capping, but I get distracted watching the eps and then forget and then have to try to rewind and then my VLC crashes and ugh. TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES PLEASE TRY AGAIN WHEN YOUR LAPTOP FEELS LIKE COOPERATING

Oh! On a personal note, booked tickets home! Two more months left before we move, yikes.

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


nrgburst: (Victory!)
For [personal profile] monanotlisa ! Not sure if you wanted solid color backgrounds/text etc. so I just went for my usual sharpen& curve/vibrance manipulation.



nrgburst: (bb8 flailllll)
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*
 
nrgburst: (YESSSSS)
I had to make a YESSSS one for myself, so I figured I'd make a bunch of icons from the trailer. :D Feel free to snag! Comment/credit appreciated. :D

These are all sized for DW, so they'll be too big for LJ. Let me know if you want one sized down and I can delete frames/colors for you~


nrgburst: (ded)
It's honestly so beautiful here right now. (Took this at the park today.) The blossoms here are mostly falling now (some still in full bloom) and there's just something magical and sad about finding stray petals caught in your purse and hair. Going to miss this!

Also, there have been some incredible trailers dropped that I HAVE to squee over because OMG HOW FUN DOES THIS MOVIE LOOK???

HOW EXCITED AM I TO WATCH THIS?!

I actually opened Youtube by chance 12 minutes after it dropped (already 50000 views) and now it's at 19 million. I'm at least 10 of those, I think. LOL That moment when he's all "YES!!" is full of such unadulterated joy, I can't.

Also Sense8! 

SUN GETS OUT OF PRISON AT LAAAAAST. :DDDDDD

Plus we are getting The Last Jedi trailer on Friday. ( And I thiiink I finally have a working idea for my [community profile] space_swap  assignment, plus a double (maaaybe triple) line bingo for [community profile] trope_bingo . Fingers crossed for all the productivity now that school is back in (although one kiddo is still only half days until next week). I can feel the ideas simmering, I just have to get all the words out in time!

nrgburst: (Astrid writing)
 
 More recs! Not sure I looked through the archive properly though because I kept seeing duplicates galora?


Star Wars

i'm starting to feel it's right- M, Jyn/Cassian, 2853 words
This songfic had me giggling and I love how each section is inspired by a single line from Shakira's "Hips don't lie". There's a nod to AotC, sparkles and too tight pants. The Good Crack. :DDD

you only live a day (but it's brilliant anyway)- G, Galen/Bodhi, 2442 words
I love how this fic plays with time and memory, and the things that evoke emotional bonds. Absolutely beautiful.

Homecoming- G, Finn/Rey, 729 words
This fic is so them, capturing their incandescent happiness at being reunited again. Like that hug on Starkiller, but with kissing.

Rogare- M, Chirrut/Baze, 1811 words
Lovely backstory that explores those recurring Rogue One themes of faith and hope, and re-kindling (or perhaps finding anew) what was lost.



MCU

Say You Like Me, Just For The Night- T, Sam/Maria, 2140 words
Fake dating and competency kink. I'm totally sold on this pairing now. LOL


nrgburst: (bb8 flailllll)
I've had relatives in town so I haven't been able to read and rec until today BUT SO MUCH DELICIOUSNESS :DDD


I'm blown away by my gift. It's an AMAZING Bucky/Nat that is canon compliant to CW, and the terse emotion and detail/implications woven into each line are just incredible. Natasha is perfectly characterized, both cautious and confident. She pushes because she needs to know, but she's also careful because she understands if he doesn't (or can't or won't) remember and it's all shown so beautifully. Negotiating boundaries with emotional undercurrent and all the angsty push/pull= my crack. The final image of Bucky like Snow White in his crystal coffin (asleep to keep the poison apple from doing its worst) is just !!!! *cries* Plus code-switching! And they "subtitled" the fic with hover too, which is exactly the way I prefer to read code-switching. Even the title is nicely ambiguous, and the fic is both Remember this? and Remember This. It made me so emotional that it hit all my buttons bang on. :'DDDD READ IT GUYS READ IT

Remember This- G, MCU, Bucky/Natasha, 1593 words


I'm only about a third of the way through the collection  but here are some recs organized by fandom:

Star Wars

Two Guardians and a Baby- G, kidfic, Chirrut/Baze, 567 words
I don't usually like kid-fic, but this one is charming without being saccharine. Both Chirrut and Baze are captured just right.

Drive Me Crazy- M, Jyn/Cassian, 5+1 things, 1821 words
Can a fic be smutty, charming and make you LOL by taking things literally? This one did for me. XD

Fierce- G, Chirrut/Baze, 396 words
I literally LOLed at the ending. Chirrut, you charmer.

microcosm- G, Galen Erso/Bodhi Rook, 3135 words
This is such a gorgeous piece. Melancholy and introspective, and a sense of impending doom echoes throughout the flashes of warmth and connection that lead them to where we find them in canon. Just wow. 2nd person Galen POV. ([personal profile] tielan was this you?)

found, G, Finn&Poe Dameron, 711 words
A nice little in-the-after piece.

Intake Day, G, Baze&Chirrut, 494 words
A bright little picture of the past.

What's Cooking? G, Han/Leia, 445 words
Squid Pie and frazzled Leia. Short and sweet.


Sense8

Palette, G, Wolfgang-centric, 1021 words
A little slice of life on how it feels to have the others in your head. Felix boggling at the changes is amusing, and Wolfgang's calm acceptance is also great.


Shadowhunters

No Sweeter Victory, T, Alec Lightwood/Magnus Bane, 5+1 things, 1416 words
Post 2x06, Competitive Malec dates and delightfully suggestive hints of fun to come.
