girl reading

bits and bobs

> Seeing the sharable banners I made for the Secret Santa anuna_81 is hosting over on be_compromised when I scroll through my f-list is making me squee with joy, like someone who just got told that there's a hugely fun Clint/Natasha winter holiday exchange is happening :D

> I have some Doctor Who thoughts, but I think I'm going to wait until the last episode of this run - only five episodes?! - before sharing them. Because I have hopes that the next episode is going to confirm some of my thinking or blow it out of the water with some magnificent Moffat. Plus, Angels! (For them I am preparing my hiding spot behind the sofa.)

> Dad has gotten me watching The Walking Dead (a tv series about survivors during a zombie apocalypse), which someone at work lent him. It's strangely addictive in a 'I need to find out what happens next' kinda way. And whenever the titular walkers show up my dad gets great amusement out of me telling the characters, "No, run. Run. Run! RUN YOUR MORONS!"

> A warning for Avengers fans: check your pre-orders. The director’s commentary has been taken off the list of special features on the Blu-ray Avengers and Blu-ray 6 disc Marvel set in the UK and other non-US countries. (What on earth are you doing Disney? No special features on the DVD, the Tesseract box set was withdrawn, and now no director’s cut on ANY disc?!) There are rumours of a limited/special edition coming out over here later. Even if those are true, I’m disappointed in how customers and fans are being treated.

> I'm working on taking all the fics that I love that are on AO3 off my laptop bookmarks and onto AO3 bookmarks. So far I've shifted 88 onto AO3, mostly Avengers. Fancy some recs? Knock yourselves out and keep your eyes peeled for more :) I’m not sure how to organise my bookmarks other than by adding my own tags, which are pretty self-explanatory. One thing that might need clarifying is that Avengers Ladies, Sherlock Ladies etc. isn’t just female characters, but also gender swaps, trans characters, gender queer, any and all types of ladies, because it’s me pointing to any and all Ladies Being Awesome :)

> And I AM catching up on reading fic! It's just taking me some time, both to read them and then to figure out what I want to say in comments :D (Also I seem to have a lot less internet time even though now I’m actually unemployed and occupation-less. Odd.)
