tsukinofaerii: I've Ugraded (Tony: Upgraded)
Saw IM3 and I am so incredibly happy with it. There are no words for how much glee this movie gives me. Stuff I was worried about? Not a concern, handled with aplomb and even humor in some cases.
Spoilers )
All of that being said: go see it.
tsukinofaerii: Shields are NOT for throwing! (Shields are not for throwing!)
The guys we shared a row with claimed watching me watch the movie was worth the extra price for 3D tickets. (blush) I may have been a bit excite. Of course, they were also trying to pick up my cousin, so they may have had an angle. But they had some idea of comics, and didn't seem to mind spending the hour leading up to the movie listening to me go, "OMG you don't know about Winter Soldier?!" and the like. It gave me a chance to babble and calm down a little. Our interactions with them ended after the movie with me showing off the Sherlock Holmes trailer and my Earth 3490 desktop wallpaper. (Which incidentally sealed my "no you can't have my number" response when the one pushing visibly relaxed when I explained about Natasha Stark—apparently it would be "weird" if it's two guys. I love it when guys are nice enough to wear warning signs.)

Okay, movie! Please forgive me if I'm not quite achieving coherence. ;a; It is early and I'm worn thin for lack of sleep; seeing Cap last night was the final straw.
Regret Nothing )
TL;DR, if I don't sleep through the weekend, I'm looking forward to seeing it again. This time with less flailing at the screen.
tsukinofaerii: Volde-Mart: Always Most Evil. ALWAYS. (Volde*Mart)
I will post yesterday's NaNo wrap up after I finish this. :3

For those of you who don't know, I was in Harry Potter fandom pretty extensively for a while. I've even been sorted a few times. (Slytherins represent, yo.) I have since fallen out of the fandom for the most part, but I have a tradition of going with my cousin to see the movies on opening night. It is a fun way to spend a work night being irresponsible, I always get a warm glow when surrounded by my fellow fen, and it is about the only time I can get a cousin to do Geekery with me without fail. TBH, if it were not for my cousin, I would have stayed home. The lure of the movies is simply not so great, especially since we're now in my least favorite ever. But I saddled myself up, wrapped a house scarf on (Gryffindor, because no one ever buys me Slytherin things ) and went directly from work to the theater in order to hold our place in line.

Because this seems to shock everyone I tell who does not do the Midnight Showings, I will explain our method. See, we do buy our tickets in advance. I have heard that the theater is sold out on the movie for the next several weeks, and two weeks ago when we purchased said tickets we found out that they had already sold out the iMax. Yeah. It's like that. So when I say I was waiting in line, I was waiting in line to get into the theater. They let people collect in designated waiting areas before the movie. If you get there early you will be first in, and therefore can get the good seats, instead of sitting right up front or being split up from the people you came with. So I got there early, and was able to claim a spot near the front that happened to have a handy outlet for my laptop. My cousin would be there (with dinner) around 8, bringing a friend from work and Friend from Work's Brother; I was a place holder. Note that I said near the front. I got there around 6:30, and the lines had already formed.

Since I was going to be waiting for a while, I took this time to watch the latest episode of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Hero. (It was lovely and lol-y in a Silver Age sort of way, though the way they're pushing Hank as The Smart One and having Tony turn to Hank for information on vibranium made me yell at my computer in the middle of a crowded theater. And I like A:EMH Hank. So, YMMV.) Once Cousin and Co got there, I made like someone who is social and put away my toys.

Eventually, we trooped our way into the individual theaters and got good seats, up in the top middle. From there, I broke out my phone and bothered [personal profile] cursor_mundi on gtalk, because she was online and everyone else was talking Hair and Highschool Memories. Urgh. Anyway, I distracted Mundi from being Responsible for a while and we shared pain about feeling old. (18 year olds should damned well know Star Wars!) During this, a bag of Bertie Botts was taken out and passed around. I proved to be a lucky snot, consistently pulling various fruit flavors, while others found themselves subject to such things as fish and gravy. Eventually, they deliberately picked out a cheese one and an onion and made me eat them. They were not as bad as the boxed (the boxed contains vomit and the like, and the flavors are much stronger), but still. ICK. You bite into it, and you can feel the flavor filling your mouth. It is honestly like biting into a fart.

The lights dimmed, and we eagerly put away the Hell-y-beans, only to be treated with half a preview. Whoops. Someone started to soon. A few minutes later, it happened again. When they actually started the previews, there was much rejoicing. And also the realization that dude, this is the year of comic book movie. Or perhaps of the Geek. We saw previews for Green Hornet and Green Lantern, Tron, Cowboys and Aliens... So much ♥.

And then... the movie. SPOILER ALERT. )
And so that was it. I collected my things and trooped on home, to arrive just past 3AM and to actually get to sleep around 3:30. @_@ Tired. Very tired. All told, it was a good movie. Better than I was expecting, but still... Deathly Hallows. (sigh)
tsukinofaerii: Oh  *Tony* (Oh *Tony*)

Okay, so who went to see it? Show of hands! (counts) Excellent. (steeples fingers) And with our might combined, we shall rule the world. I got extremely lucky. My theater had a double showing: Iron Man 1 at 9 and Iron Man 2 at 12. In short, I had roughly four hours of Starkish goodness. And lemme tell you, watching them in a row like that really let me appreciate the quality of IM2 more. I went dressed as girl!Cap. Supposedly I dragged a cousin, but she crapped out and went home before the showing of IM2 (BOO). Luckily, I had a fanboy on my right who was willing to geek with me and, on occasion, keep me from falling out of my seat.
Just for kicks, I pulled out my Stark Suicide Special bingo card. Below are the results for the movie.

My thoughts on Cap: Reborn, limited to one thought per page for maximum WTF factor. I picked my thoughts (of which there were many) for maximum random and confusion. If you know what's going on, you've probably already read it. :D

This does not mean there's no spoilers.
I can't wait to see the fanfic that comes out of this. :D

I would like to open by saying "HOLY FUCKING SHIT".

In other news, I clearly did not get the amount of writing done today as I did yesterday, due to the above flailing and its causes. I did get some done, so yays there. Not really what I should be writing (shakes fist), but writing was accomplished. Over 500 words! I will give you a few of them.
Someone needed to have a serious talk with Tony about his repression issues.WiP Untitled 1 Avengers
Finally... EW, spaghetti. D: Please don't tell me that we're having a family dinner and not tell me that the food is something I won't eat. Really, I don't mind them having it, but give me a little warning so I can eat beforehand or bring my own or something.
