My observations as a fannish lurker, pulled from various conversations and a few older lj posts. I figured I'd put them all in one place.

[describing Thor in Thor] He's like a Viking version of The Tick.

[describing Girl with the Dragon Tattoo] IT'S THE DYSTOPIAN GENDERFUCK JOHN/SHERLOCK AU I DIDN'T KNOW I WANTED.

[describing BBC's Sherlock] This is the most epic love story I've seen since I first watched The Fast and the Furious.

[describing Hailee Steinfield in True Grit] Imagine Benton Fraser as a thirteen year old girl in the old west, with no Ray.

[describing The Proposal] It's every work of Devil Wears Prada fanfiction ever. Only het.

[describing the Twilight movies] This is what True Blood would be like if it actually took itself seriously.

[describing Russel Edgington in True Blood] He's the villain from Pixar's Up!, complete with army of sentient canines.

[describing Jim Ellison in The Sentinel] He's the gay man's John McClane, complete with receding hairline and spunky, curly haired wife.


I'm working on some multifandom fic rec posts, for my own amusement. My favorite "dialogue/monologue/textual communication under the influence of alcohol/drugs" fic. My favorite "secretly the town bicycle" fic (it's like "secretly a virgin" fic only, you know, the exact opposite of that). My favorite "endearingly hapless creepy stalker" fic. My favorite "surprise alien/magical vagina" fic (not to be confused with genderswap). My favorite "preposterous superpower" AU's. My favorite supermodel AU's. I'm sure I could think of more, but I do want to post this journal entry at some point.


Happy New Year's Eve, y'all.

I did not know it was possible to do a spit-take without actually drinking anything, but apparently it is.

He even leaves her for the equivalent of Mary at the end of the movie.

Tragically, I think I came up with the same True Blood metaphor when I was watching it. >.< Although Up was sadly lacking in dead boyfriends in jars, the most glorious thing True Blood ever brought me.
