Just saw Thor. I think I can say this without it being a spoiler: after two movies in which my reaction to MCU!Loki was "yes... almost", this movie finally gave me the Loki I wanted :) Plus I think it's a cooler movie than the first Thor movie.

Not long ago I posted about the awesomeness of Journey into Mystery (the Marvel comic).

If you wanted to know more about Loki's history in the comics in the last couple of years, and especially about how and why he did the whole man!Loki-lady!Loki-man!Loki-dead!Loki-kid!Loki transformation, here is an excellent and entertaining post by [livejournal.com profile] xparrot with scans.

I wanted to go to Occupy Frankfurt today but I failed because of EARLY MORNINGS. At least it's no surprise to me that my political convictions < my epic laziness. Well, now I've got time to:
- read "An Ideal Husband"
- take care of Radiosonic editing stuff
- look for my half-orc character sheet
- clean the bathroom and my room
- write this post

A post by [livejournal.com profile] xparrot reminded me that I wanted to do a write a little post regarding an excellent comic I've been reading, namely: Journey into Mystery (volume 4, starting with issue 622). It's part of the Marvel universe and their Thor franchise, and the first trade paperback, in my opinion, is up there with the best bits from the Sandman comics. The art quality suffers in the second TPB, but I'll still buy the third TPB even though I rarely buy comics because they're quite expensive here (usually I just get my fix from scans_daily).

Journey into Mystery is, quite simply, an attempt to redeem Marvel's Loki. )

I'm the last person to have thoughts on Avengers, I guess, but I saw it last week and I keep writing bits of this post in my head.

Before we went to see this movie I had a conversation with some of my friends about who my favourite superhero (or my favourite superhero movie) is (because I'm probably the one with the biggest interest in superheroes) and I had a hard time answering. In the end, my answers were: the X-Men, or or the Justice League or I dunno. One of the guys said, "So what you really like is superhero teams." I should have said, "I'm a roleplayer, of course what I like best is teams," but of course you only come up with the best replies later. But yeah, I like superhero teams. And the one thing I like better than an origin story is a "getting the team together" story.

And one of the things that struck me about "Avengers" is that instead of taking away from the many, many characters it added something to nearly all of them - it made them better and cooler and funnier than they were on their own.

Yuletide

Dec. 28th, 2011 07:49 pm
bagheera_san: (OMG)
I wanted to make a Yuletide recs post, but everything I want to rec is what everyone else had already recced (like that Horrible Histories fic), so it seems kinda pointless.

But there still needs to be a post, because I got not one, but two yuletide gifts, one for regular yuletide, and one for madness.

The Scientific Method (Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Mature, Tony/Hank, Jan/Hank)
Anon combined two things I like and asked for, fanfic clichés and Tony/Hank. In this case it's sex pollen, except that this fic shows that Tony can't actually distinguish himself under the influence from himself as he is usually. And he almost makes a mess of things, but everyone else reacts quite well, because they're awesome people and this is an awesome yuletide gift :)

Told in fallen skies (Krabat, Master/Jirko)
Another fic that is EXACTLY what I asked for, in ways I didn't dare hope for. This one is dark and sad and wonderfully in-character, plus it fills some of the gaps in the Master's story. Anon is an extremely cool person because they wrote me a fic in a fandom hardly anyone knows and so it's pretty much a one person audience.

I also wrote a story, on the 24th/25th. It was meant to be a small treat, but turned into a proper 1000+ sized thing because I'm incapable of keeping things short.

I can't keep my comment-fic short - but at least that's an excuse for taking so long to write this. That, and I had to watch Avengers. This is for [livejournal.com profile] dragonofmemory who gave me superheroes and Robert Burn's "To A Mouse" as a prompt.

Title: Justifying Ill Opinion
Fandom: Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes
Length: 3,300 words
Spoilers: This is set somewhere around "Panther's Quest" and "Everything is Wonderful", so at the beginning of S1.
Summary: Tony tries to do nice things.

I'm truly sorry man's dominion/ Has broken Nature's social union,/ And justifies that ill opinion/ Which makes thee startle/ At me, thy poor, earth born companion/ And fellow mortal )

Went to Newcastle to see X-Men: First Class today. X-Men is one of my early fandoms, my first ficathon (and my first LJ icon, see the one I'm using) were in that fandom. My OTP in it is Xavier/Magneto, so this was obviously a film I looked forward to!

X-Men First Class )

All in all a very satisfying movie.

So here's one of the things I wrote for the Thor kinkmeme. Crossover between Marvel and Smallville, but you needn't really know much about Marvel except that Doctor Doom is an evil genius (surprising, I know, given his name), has his own country that he rules with an iron fist (literally), likes to hang out with Loki because dark magic is relevant to their interests, and has a frenmity with Reed Richards/Mr Fantastic that is nearly as strong as that of Lex and Superman. And Loki is a Norse god/space alien/trickster with daddy issues and BFF-turned-nemesis-relationship to his adoptive brother Thor. You can probably see why they should all three get along smashingly.

Title: Myth and Legend
Pairing: Lex/Loki, (Doom/Richardses, Doom/Loki and Lex/Superman alluded to)
Rating: adultish
Length: 1323 words

Lex Luthor is a man who knows his myths. )

Finished an essay today, then panicked for two hours about which topic to choose for the next, then decided that Freud was the way to go after all, then went to go see Thor on the big screen.

Now, Marvel Comics!Norse Myth has always been ridiculously WRONG (Loki and Thor are step-brothers. Asgardians are aliens from another dimension, or something.) and yet somehow right. Still it took me about 10 minutes to get into this, but then it was SO MUCH FUN.

It was funny (this I expected least), very clearly tried to be as politically correct as possible (both in the gender and the race department), it GOT Thor's personality (sweet. so very sweet and dumb and yet not really dumb where it counts) and I GLEED at the things it did with Loki.

Marvel!Loki is never really a proper trickster, more a straight out villain, and the best he's got so far in comics canon was by turning into a woman semi-permanently, having lots of UST with Baldur and then dying a redeeming fake death only to come back as kid!Loki (I lie: Marvel Loki is much closer to the original than he seems at first sight, ever since writers realized that he ought to be ambiguous). But movie!Loki is woobie-tastic, and while that is also wrong-yet-right in terms of myth, it's much, much better than I hoped for. I forsee much slash :D

Kenneth Branagh is clearly a cool guy who knows how to make a fun comics movie.
