Previously in this long time marathon: I apparently did not write about rewatching Captain America, Agent Carter, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man 2.

I am sick right now, sore throat and exhaustion and all, so what better time than to rewatch Thor? I had zero interest in the movie until I saw a gif set on Tumblr that included Sif and then I was 100% into giving it a try.

And then I fell in love with it.

Thor )

The Thor trilogy is one of my favorite parts of the MCU, mostly because Thor is one of my favorite characters and I love the science fiction meets fantasy weight of them. Overall, not as good as the Iron Man trilogy, but Thor as a whole has a stronger character arc across the MCU. This is by far one of the most beautiful movies of the MCU, too.

I just realized I should have held off on watching Iron Man until this released, but oh well! I saw it last night and I want to see it again sometime soon, so I doubt there will be any in-depth comments below, but non-spoilery response: There are plenty of things to criticize, but I loved it.

First, holy shit, I got another story! It's another original work, survival and a western, and it is gorgeous. The creeping danger of the weather feels real, and it rolls out into a delightful story.

Oh my god, y'all, my exchange karma has come back to me in spades for Chocolate Box! This is the first time I participated, and I did not manage to write anything but my assignment, which is weird, because I pretty much always treat. It's just not a good time of year for me, I guess.


I was gifted four stories, and I am thrilled.

This is an actual rewatch as a part of my MCU rewatch. (Previously: Agent Carter and Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.) For a long, long time, the Iron Man trilogy was my favorite of the solo movies, and I love it to this day. Yes, including Iron Man 2, which I know a lot of people hate.

My MCU (re)watch continues! This time with The Incredible Hulk, one of the parts I'm watching for the first time. I'm a little torn on this one; I love Banner and the Hulk (in part because the Hulk is a great metaphor for bipolar), and I've enjoyed some of Norton's work, but I love the hell out of Ruffalo's version and I don't know how this is going to work for me.

Spoilers for The Incredible Hulk, of course, but also brief talk of Ragnarok and Infinity War. (And this turned into slightly more stream of conscious live blogging than I intended.)

I'm in need of recommendations for contemporary romance stories, hockey romance stories, and hockey stories in general and would love any and all suggestions, fic or books or movies/tv shows, whatever.

Dear Chocolate Box Creator,

This is my first time doing Chocolate Box, but I’ve seen so much excitement over it, and such wonderful stories and art come out of it, that I wanted to give it a try. I can’t wait to see what you create.

Below are some general likes and Do Not Wants, as well as a few prompts and thoughts about why I like specific fandoms, characters, and combinations. Mixing and matching fandoms and prompts more than welcome. If there’s a discrepancy between the general likes and the DNWs and the fandom-specific information, go with the fandom-specific information.

My absolute favorite things: werewolves, crossovers and alternate universes, and monsters and magic.

You can find me on DW, LJ, and AO3 as escritoireazul.

I'm working my way chronologically through the MCU (some things are a rewatch, some for the first time), and today I finished the last two episodes of Agent Carter, the Agent Carter short at the end of Iron Man 3, and Iron Man. I have some thoughts. Spoilers for both things, and for Avengers: Civil War.

I managed five Yuletide stories this year, my assignment and four treats. Not my most prolific year, but pretty damn good, and I'm proud of the stories I wrote.

Assignment: Out of Bounds and Off the Trail, Baby-Sitters Club by Ann M. Martin, Abby/Kristy (and ensemble)
Summary: Abby heads up to Shadow Lake for a long weekend of skiing, snowball fights, and hot chocolate. Add in an unrequited crush, two sets of best friends, and a blizzard, and the only thing Abby can think is this: At least we're not being stalked by a failed killer this time.

Treat: (Not a) Survival Group, Jurassic Park series/Jurassic World series, Lex/Kelly (and ensemble)
Summary: It's not a dinosaur survival group. Not really. It's just that, well, they all survived dinosaurs once. Or twice. Kelly hopes there will never be a third time for any of them.

Treat: No More Crossroads, No More Waiting, Thunderheart, Ray/Walter, soulmate AU
Summary: The movies got the soulmate thing all wrong.

(I 100% expected [livejournal.com profile] carlyinrome to guess this was me, but she swears she did not.)

Treat: Advance and Retreat, Avengers Grimm, Sleeping Beauty and Red Riding Hood
Summary: Beauty's magic fails her sometimes. Snow thinks it's high time she learned to fight. Red's the one given the job. No one is happy about this.

(New fandom! I've wanted to write for this for a few years now, and I was thrilled to find another fan.)

Treat: Say Hello to Your Friends (Again and Again and Again), Baby-Sitters Club by Ann M. Martin, Mallory/Jessi (and ensemble)
Summary: When Mary Anne gets married (again), Mallory and Jessi reunite with some old friends. It's not nearly as awkward as Mallory fears.
