So...this happened


[info]alisanne
I participated in [community profile] firewhiskeyfic last night and I just spent a few fun minutes going back through the threads at our encouragement/support post. As fun as we are when sober, we're even more hilarious when drunk.

Alas, it's too late to participate in this round, but if you want a laugh, go check out the post. *shakes head* We're pretty wacky. And you can definitely tell when someone gets drunk. :P

Oh, and the results of our drunken revelry go up on Tuesday, so plan to check that out.
I, for one, will be interested to see what I wrote, since I have no clue. (Did I mention I was drunk?) :P
I'm prepared to be very surprised. *g*

From the Quotation of the day mailing list, 2014-02-18:

"If your mind is expansive and unfettered, you will find yourself in a more accommodating world, a place that's endlessly interesting and alive. That quality isn't inherent in the place but in your state of mind. The warrior longs to communicate that all of us have access to our basic goodness and that genuine freedom comes from going beyond labels and projections, beyond bias and prejudice, and taking care of each other." -- Pema Chodron

LOL so I'm reading that last run of Captain America with Dimension Z and all that crazy shit and near the end it shows what can only be Sam's apartment based on the posters and music collection etc. (And the fact that it's just him and Jet there and she sure as hell doesn't have a place.) His apartment is really high up in a skyscraper in the Upper West Side. This is when Steve's already turned crazy old, Sam's about to be made Captain America, and in a matter of months he's going to be needing to ask his brother for money to pay his bills and living somewhere that's definitely not the same place. So at first I was like "WTF?"

Then I realised, actually, it totally makes sense. First, later on he's on the outs with SHIELD, whereas while Steve's Captain America they work with SHIELD a lot. He's probably listed as a contractor and getting paid by them, and when he gets banned from SHIELD for helping the Whisperer escape and negotiate an immunity deal they'd cut him off. Also, he grew up poor as hell. He spent all his time at work, at school, doing community work, or trying to raise his siblings. His money management skills are all based around making ends meet when he's barely got two bucks to rub together. SHIELD contractor pay? Hell yes, he's going to rent a place way up in the sky in the Upper West Side. He's probably also giving his niblings tons of presents and donating a heap to the family's church. He has dick all savings. Which made me think of last Christmas in Displaced when I had him make a huge list of people to get presents for and max out a credit card, which is exactly the same behaviour. I fucking love when things tie together like that.

You know... when Displaced moves back to Texas... 616ers might have to decide whether or not to do the same thing with Secret Empire as Trump. Because it's basically unavoidable on the internet and otherwise Sam is going to fucking flip. He's already going to flip over Beyonce having twins but it's a completely different kind of flipping lol. I did ignore the Logan film for Laura but that seems... a lot easier.

Pointing you to TWO lovely bits of fic written by my bestie, [personal profile] gryffindorj.

The first is a wee Teddy/James ficlet (who knew she could even do that? LOL) with all the wonderful OTP feels I get from this pairing.

With Both Hands (On LJ) 320 words, Not Rated (I'd say PG-13/soft R)

The second is a sensual R/S. It's not canon compliant (Hooray!) and they've both gotten a little older but are still dead sexy. Possibly even sexier. ;)

Earned It (On LJ) 3200 words, NC-17

Check them out! :D

The overall gameplay this expansion may be so-so, but the 7.2 cinematic at the Broken Shore has exploded my soul. Oh, Anduin.
