In the meantime, I greatly enjoyed this one (particularly the conversation about Alaska): The One Where Caine Meets Jupiter’s Family, by childishinquiry “So men wear eyeliner, in […]

February fic complete!

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

Originally this story was meant to be titled, “Call Click or Visit,” but by the time I got to the end I realized I had utterly failed to match the content to the title in any meaningful way, so I changed it. The more you know! Title: Something Like Home Author: marcicat Fandom: Avengers MCU, […]

How fandom is helping me get to the gym

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

February has been a tough month for my gym attendance. I’ve been searching for ways to motivate me to get there at least once more before March — something strong enough to overcome the dual hurdles of 1) it’s cold; and 2) I could be sleeping. Yesterday, I was driving to work, listening to the […]

Jupiter Ascending: even more glorious in IMAX 3D. A Few Thoughts, In No Particular Order: 1. The dragon-guards totally remind me of the Makluan from Iron Man: Armored Adventures. 2. Probability that Stinger is trolling Jupiter, like, 90% of the time they’re on Earth: high. 3. Everyone recognizes her title, but no one except the […]

fathers and sons, by M_Leigh (Post-Days of Future Past) Hank’s POV on re-starting the school, and how much he is 10,000% done with Charles and Erik’s ridiculousness. “He actually had said that, was the thing. “Look at what he’ll force you to wear if you join his cause,” he’d exhorted, shaking a newspaper at them.

oh, work

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

It’s Thursday, so it must be time for a post about work! In a weird twist of accounting scheduling, this Friday marks the fiscal end of February at work. The sales teams have *repeatedly* been told that they aren’t supposed to try to push a bunch of orders through on the last day. Which means […]
