JSTOR is a Harry/Hermione shipper! D:

Actually, I share almost no ships with JSTOR? I guess depending how you define 'ship. I will only accept Poe and Finn if Rey is in there too.

And John/Alexander Hamilton only works if we acknowledge that I can simultaneously ship Alexander/Eliza. CAUSE I SHIP IT INTO THE GROUND.

1) Star Wars fandom is going through the "OMG IF YOU DON'T READ THE NEW EXPANDED UNIVERSE AND INCLUDE IT IN UR META, UR WRONG" phase, and I recognize this is a fandom that predates my experiences and whatever, but also no. I can write my Fin background fic in blissful ignorance of anything but the one movie he starred in and LAALALALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU. #optionalcanon #forever

(I have a friend who earnestly explained to me that the Star Wars option canon was different because it was all internally consistent and beautiful and also Disney is RUINING it. And I was like, um, I'm pretty sure I read that one book about the married jedi and their babies, which is definitely not consistent and PS episodes 1-3 are canon to me, I am maybe not the fan-type you are looking for.)

2) Have I mentioned I have a roommate who is a Harry/Ginny shipper and sends me goodfic email recs? It's THE BEST. I have a lot of complicated feelings about the Harry Potter fandom, mostly concerning the absolute difficulty of digging for canon-compliant fix. I am a gumbly old canon-fan and I am tired of digging through tags.

3) I have decided that I'm not going to bother to try and see Ant-man or Avengers 2 before seeing Captain America 3. Maybe if they ever get to neflix. But all I really want to see is massive amounts of angst and friendship so backstory doesn't really matter, right?

4) I still have SO MUCH TO SAY ABOUT X-MEN WHEN DID THAT MOVE GET SO CLOSE??? AHHHH.

Saw Captain America: Winter Soldier last week!

IT WAS AMAZING TOTALLY AWESOME. SO MUCH BETTER THAN EXPECTED.

I want to thank the internet for mild spoilers )

If you haven't seen it, I do recommend it. Much better sequel than Thor II. Attention to detail was astonishing. Cast was diverse and interesting (for a superhero movie, at least).

Comic book spoilers )

New head canon. Whatever Captain America and Jack Harkness.

PEGGY QUIT AFTER WWII AND STARTED WORKING FOR TORCHWOOD.

She kicked lots of alien butt and was super-awesome and classy all the time.

Then she retired to Manchester. Because Torchwood cannot kill Peggy Carter.

Well, I'm sick of my life and I'm sure everyone else is too, so let's talk about fun things instead!

Did anyone else notice that in the Army training scene in Captain America when Steve jumps on the dummy grenade, Peggy is the only other person to race for the grenade?

♥ PEGGY! Needs more fandom.

Also, my boss is working his way through Doctor Who and apparently he's planning to watch Torchwood as well (he's following some sort of online something that tells him what order to watch them in.) I warned him Torchwood is a bad show. Repeatedly. He couldn't understand why people would watch it and I used my "it's like comics, k?" analogy, but I CAN ALREADY SEE WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN HERE.

He is going to watch it. He's going to think it's terrible. There will be a CONVERSATION.

Well, he can't say I didn't warn him.

Lastly, this is the best thing I've seen today. I have no idea if the have schwarma in Cardiff, but yes. Wear a napkin-bib.
