Finally answering the fandom meme. Haha, oops! Silly life getting in the way.

[ profile] lostandalone22 gave me Heroes

The most beautiful character: Physically, it's a toss up between the three main Petrellis(/Bennet). In the "cinnamon roll, too pure for this world" sense, Hiro.
The character I admire most: Hiro Nakamura
The character with a skill, ability, or knowledge that I wish I had: Peter Petrelli. Both his empathy and his ability to take everyone else's powers into his own repetoire.
The character I'm most attracted to: Nathan Petrelli
The character I would most want to hang out with and be the most fun BFFs with: Hiro
The character I would most trust with my secrets: It's been a while since I watched and I feel like Hiro may be the only one who truly kept a secret (beyond his slip up with "flying man!").
The character that I ship with the most other characters in the show/movie: Peter Petrelli
The character that had the most wasted potential in canon (the character that canon kind of screwed over): ALL OF THEM, TIM KRING, ALL OF THEM.
The character I love even though I don't like the actor, -or- a character I don't like even though I love the actor: Elle Bishop - KBell is great, but fuck I hated Elle.
If the show were to take one of the 'good guy' characters and reveal that she/he was secretly a bad guy all along, which character would I choose?: I mean, technically, this was Nathan Petrelli? (Which, fuck that, he's just complicated, okay?)
The character that seems most aware of his/her own faults or limits: Probably Noah Bennet, being about the only solid human.
The character that I like way better than I used to: I don't have one of these for this show. My first impressions pretty much stayed the same.

[ profile] siberian_skys gave me Avengers

The most beautiful character: Pepper Potts, Peggy Carter
The character I admire most: Peggy Carter
The character with a skill, ability, or knowledge that I wish I had: Tony Stark
The character I'm most attracted to: Tony Stark
The character I would most want to hang out with and be the most fun BFFs with: Clint
The character I would most trust with my secrets: Natasha
The character that I ship with the most other characters in the show/movie: Hmm. I think they're all about the same? Each character has 2 or fewer people I ship them with, not all in Avengers itself (but in the larger 'verse).
The character that had the most wasted potential in canon (the character that canon kind of screwed over): Natasha and Clint...and Tony Stark (Dear MCU: check yourself on placing all the Hank Pym BS onto Tony. FU!)
The character I love even though I don't like the actor, -or- a character I don't like even though I love the actor: Loki - Tom is great but I have never been able to hop on the Loki fan train
If the show were to take one of the 'good guy' characters and reveal that she/he was secretly a bad guy all along, which character would I choose?: Maria Hill, if only because of comics and EMH.
The character that seems most aware of his/her own faults or limits: TONY STARK (ok, this maaay be colored by the comics; MCU, maybe Natasha)
The character that I like way better than I used to: Bruce grew on me; (platonic) Science Bros.
mf_luder_xf: (Steve x Tony)
Ok, first things first...THE X-FILES IS BACK!!!

Please let these 6 eps finish the alien colonization mytharc. PLEASE.

Agents of SHIELD spoilers through last night )
mf_luder_xf: (Black Widow)
I just went on a rant about Tony on my tumblr because a) I've been reading some fics that aren't Steve/Tony and apparently if they're not together, Steve basically hates Tony or finds him immature or rude or fake or what-the-fuck-ever and b) people keep making gif sets pointing out Tony's line about knowing all of SHIELD's secrets (via the virus he used to find out about the tesseract) in Avengers and the outcome of Captain America 2 where, well, it seems like Tony missed some dirty secrets. Which yes, he did, but some of the sets out there seem very blame-y and I'm probably just super sensitive, but don't fucking touch Tony if you don't understand him or if you don't like him. I hate people who put character hate into a fic (or gif set, I guess) at the expense of the character.

I know Tony has issues, ok. He's not an angel (figuratively or literally). He's done some shit-ass things like taking Pepper for granted (comics and MCU), not looking out for Happy (comics), locking up friends for not registering (comics). He's an alcoholic. But those issues are why he is who he is and Tony has growth and depth, even in MCU, and if you can't accept them, then just leave him alone. STOP BLAMING HIM. The sad thing is, Tony Stark would blame himself for not magically knowing Hydra had infiltrated SHIELD. He doesn't need everyone else blaming him for it, too.

MF Luder: unrepentant Tony Stark fan. I actually feel like those Dean-is-god fans out there, suddenly.

(In related news, I really wish I could find some Steve/Bucky fic that's either also Steve/Tony fic or at least is Steve/Tony friendship fic.)

First, I want to direct you all to the Awkward!Hawkeye Fest hosted by [ profile] aliassmith that has some really silly (AND AWESOME) ficlets and basically, a whole bunch of ridiculous gifs of Jeremy Renner being a total dork.

Like this one:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Which, context provided, he just finished swinging a hammer to hit the thing up a machine to test your strength (like at carnivals)...and he'd just failed. LIKE MISERABLY. He hit the very first rung only. I DIED. Because, dude, so me. And so is that face.


And seriously, this is just a perfect instance of how Awkward!Hawkeye might look. :D

Also from that interview, check out this collection of gifs because seriously, it was an interview entirely in Russian and they were so awkward and it was so awkward and then this ridiculously buff guy in a speedo comes and up and their reactions are priceless.

And then I just wanted to leave this photo because, first of all - what are they doing?!? Second of all, I'm digging that ridiculous lean-in and arm grab between Jeremy and RDJ. And finally JEREMY RENNER, STOP WITH THAT WAIST.


No seriously, when did I go from obsessing over Steve/Tony and RDJ (not that either of those are gone) to being so obsessed with Jeremy Renner. THE THINGS HE DOES TO ME.

And on an end note: HAI NEW FRIENDS, HAI!!!

Now, apparently, there's some controversy over the reactions to this clip (seems to be Coulson/Barton shippers versus self-proclaimed feminists - yeah, this is fandom, of course), but that aside, here was my reaction watching it the first time:

1. Hahaha, Natasha's face when the guy goes "I don't give everything". GENIUS.
2. Hawkeye compromised? WTF does that mean? WTF WHEDON DON'T KILL HIM.
3. Her face when she hears about Barton. AW.
4. DAMN. Natasha kicks ass.
5. Stunt doubles really should be the actual superheroes because the fuck, no one can roll their chair like that or flip it or...HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE.
6. Coulson's calm, collected, 'tick tock I'm waiting' expression while he's on "hold". It looks exactly like someone does in an elevator or on hold. While he's listening to Natasha decimating the people and surrounding property. HAHAHAHA, COULSON, I LOVE YOU. BEST FACE EVER.

And seriously, I keep watching this clip over and over because Natasha rolling that chair and Coulson's FACE are like, the best thing yet about this movie. IT NEEDS TO BE MAY 4TH NOW.

ETA: And then there's THIS interview and, more importantly, video of Jeremy Renner. I am ridiculously in love with this man. Move aside Fassbender, you've been replaced! (Not really, but kinda.) I'm just sort of imagining it's Clint on a photoshoot Stark set up for him because you know, if Steve would maybe be embarrassed/awkward by photoshoots, Clint would eat that attention up. :D
mf_luder_xf: (Default)

So at first, I was all COULSON, I BET HE'S FANBOYING STEVE RIGHT HERE. And then I looked closer and I can't even squee over Coulson and Steve in the same shot (which isn't as good as Coulson and Clint, anyway, but that's another topic) because all I can think now is STEVE, WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?!

No seriously. A plaid shirt in browns/creams and plaid pants in gray?!


Tony needs to put him on What Not To Wear. Or at least send Pepper shopping.
mf_luder_xf: (Default)
So, I'm very curious. It appears that the number 2 slash pairing in Avengers (movie) 'verse is Clint/Coulson. Like, where the fuck did this come from? The less than a minute screen time in Thor where they talked over walkie-talkies? Or is there greater interaction in the comic book that everyone is basing this on (Does Coulson exist in comic 'verse, even? I know Maria Hill does, but I haven't come across Coulson...)?

Don't get me wrong. I've come across Clint/Coulson in any number of Steve/Tony fics and have found Clint to be my favorite. And then started reading Clint/Coulson stories with them as the main characters. Because when written right, Clint is better at snark than Tony. He's like a character made entirely of crack. He's awesome. And somehow, him pestering Coulson cracks me up to no end. So yeah. I kind of ship it. (And Clint/Natasha, but I also kind of ship Tony/Natasha...thank you 616 and Ultimates for giving me awesome pairings. Oh, and also Pepper/Coulson based on the Iron Man movies...) I also love Clint in Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes; again, his snark slays me. And I love Coulson being kickass and annoyed and yet affectionate about all the Avengers even when he wants to taser them (Tony). And seeing him have someone to go home to is nice.

Point being, I'm digging the Clint/Coulson. I just have no idea why everyone else started shipping it. I did through awesomely-written fic. But everyone else??

And in that vein...who knows more good Clint/Coulson authors? Fic recs? :D
mf_luder_xf: (Default)
Season 2 of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes finally airs on Disney next month and they redid some costumes. But I just can't get over Cap's body shape. I mean, look at this:


First of all, his shoulders are like the size of a car. His head? Tiny in comparison. But mainly, I can't get over that star. Like, they don't even try to make it normal. It's like someone took a normal picture of Captain America and stretched it out one way only. It just cracks me up the way they're so ridiculously drawn. Steve is ginormous!! (Also, Tony's parenthetical bangs are like my favorite part.)

When is someone going to make an Avengers friend meme? I NEED MORE MARVEL-BASED FRIENDS.
mf_luder_xf: (Avengers Civil War)
You know what's hard? Trying to write a proper apocalyptic fic in Marvel 'verse. Like, Sam and Dean live in this crazy world where Hell is real and monsters will slice through your anti-demon tattoos to get in you. And yeah, they have angels and occasionally even God, and yeah, you can write happy (or sad) afterlife fics. But at the end of the day, thinking of something to destroy the earth isn't hard. Even if Sam and Dean survive or live on in Heaven, there's this whole planet of people that there's no real logical way for them to get "out".

But now, take Marvel. First of all, I like canon. I like manipulating canon to fit my story. I also like multiple parts and characters of Marvel 'verse. When I watch A: EMH, I can't help but think "Magneto would take that alien spaceship down no problem" and then I watch something X-Men related and I'm like, "Tony Stark could hack into that giant robot in like, two minutes". And so, as a writer, I can't help but think of the WHOLE of the 'verse. And I get annoyed when other authors keep it contained to one group (i.e. Avengers or X-Men or Fantastic Four) because if the world were truly in peril, the other groups would step into help, and I can't get that thought out of my head.

And so, I'm trying to think of something that can a) kill Avengers, b) kill most of the population, c) destroy the earth, and d) not be stopped by the X-Men, the Avengers, SHIELD, The Fantastic Four, and The Immortals (yes, I even feel the need to include them because they exist and so I have to try to explain why they don't feel threatened by this apocalyptic force).

And I'm just like, The Fantastic Four have steered Galactus away before. Dark Phoenix didn't destroy the world. The Earth survived Loki's attempt to take over. Like, all these massive forces that should be enough to wipe the earth's population out can be counteracted by all these beings with powers. And hell, even if they can't, they have spaceships. And super geniuses like Reed Richards and Tony Stark and Henry McCoy. They're going to find some other planet or dimension to take themselves and Earth's population to.

At this point, I'm stuck on only something Supernatural-based that can't be fought off with magnetism and technology. But even then, there's Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch and Asgard which could use the magic Sam and Dean often use to fight back.

So what would cause Tony to stare out his tower window at pure and total devastation and make it properly hopeless?

mf_luder_xf: (Default)
Apparently, in X-Factor #231, on an alternate Earth, Steve is a cyborg. And evil. Cyborg!Steve comes to Tony looking for a fight. Context? Who needs it?

And then this happens. )

So, for once I'm actually excited for a Spider-Man movie. But I guess I never realized Peter was a science whiz, I always thought he was more like Clark Kent (well, Jimmy, really) with his camera, so that bit surprised me. I think I'm going to like this origins story, though. I like Emma Stone far more than Kirsten Dunst. And the trailer looks awesome. Mainly, though, it's all the Avengers fic I'm reading because Peter usually ends up cracking me up in them :D
mf_luder_xf: (Default)
Well, the game ended badly for me, so really, I appreciate this far more:

BOYS. ♥ *flails*

In other geeky things, I was putting together my ideal Avengers football team. I'm thinking Hawkeye as QB, Tony as wide receiver, Black Widow as a running back, Thor and Steve as offensive linemen, and Hulk would basically be the entire defense but technically the defensive tackle. Thoughts? (I think Wasp would make a good running back, too, Hank maybe defensive end, Wolverine as another defensive tackle...and I don't really know where Scarlet Witch or Ms Marvel would end up. Or Spiderman.)

Iron Tron?

I just have to say, I love that Tony Stark in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes takes being a "futurist" a little too far. You can predict the future or create it...without having to include Tron fashion into your daily life.

No, really )
mf_luder_xf: (XM "by my side")
It's strange because I don't necessarily feel the compelling urge to read Marvel comics (though part of that is the sheer amount), and I might almost call myself a DC!girl still, simply because that's what I've read. I mean, I grew up loving Superman (though, more TV/movie versions than comics), and Hellblazer and Watchmen will probably be my favorite comics for a loooong time.

Yet...I ship the HELL out of Erick and Charles (I also enjoy the X-Men in general) and Tony and Steve. I don't really ship anyone in DC verse. Well aside from the (for me) obligatory Lois and Clark. But, how can you not? Seriously, trying to figure out which couple is more gay is near impossible.

Here, let me show you )
