So did any one see the new Spiderman: Homecoming film yet? Your thoughts?

Nobody, I think, ought to read poetry, or look at pictures or statues, who cannot find a great deal more in them than the poet or artist has actually expressed. Their highest merit is suggestiveness.

Ooooh, Peter Parker/Spiderman's Vlog from CA: Civil War is posted! I'm guessing this is the beginning of the new Homecoming movie due out next week. Still good to see, even though I really want to know whether Steve and/or Bucky makes it into any of the 3 MCU films due out before Avengers: Infinity War.

Title: All the Wonders That Remain
Author: missbecky on Ao3
Fandom: Kingsman (2015 film)
Rating: R?
Pairing: Harry Hart/ Gary "Eggsy" Unwin
Genre: Slash
Summary: This is his life now, Eggsy thinks. His family on one side, Kingsman on the other. And all around, filling up the space in between, Harry Hart. One year together in the life of the perfect spy couple.
Warning: Spoilers the film
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/6515311/chapters/14908387

A gorgeous fic that takes its time to show what life would be like for Harry and Eggsy if they got together with all its ups and downs. For those who wonder what "Happily Ever After" is like after the credits roll ^_~ Highly recommended!

I didn't believe they would release toys based on the film since it was a surprise hit but maybe the sequel is generating more interest. A Harry Hart from Kingsman figure: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XGHZSX6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Since Hot Toys won't make one, I'll settle for this. So cute with that umbrella! XD

The simplest questions are the most profound. Where were you born? Where is your home? Where are you going? What are you doing? Think about these once in a while and watch your answers change.

by making your novels available only on Amazon/Kindle, you are effectively allowing them to be held hostage for months before the novels are released and available on other websites and for non-US readers. There is no way you are making more profit or achieving a wider readership base by this method.

Yours sincerely,

Title: Care and Custody
Author: esama on Ao3
Fandom: Kingsman (2015 film)
Rating: R?
Pairing: Harry Hart/Gary "Eggsy" Unwin
Genre: Slash
Summary: Eggsy takes out the medal in slightly worse circumstances, asking for a miracle.
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/4107487?view_full_work=true

A gorgeous AU showing what could have happened if Eggsy used his favour in a different way. The characterization is brilliant even with the altered circumstances. The relationship between Harry and Eggsy really works here with keen insight by the author into both characters.

One of my favourite fics in this fandom, not that I'm biased or anything^_~

Spent the day doing laundry, not exactly my favourite activity. Especially with some pieces requiring to be washed by hand, I am not eager to discover what a washing machine can do to lace and viscose...

Temperatures hit 50C this week and god help us come July. *winces* I've been digging through the closet to find loose clothing, can't imagine wearing too many layers to work. I've been slowly replacing my clothes since the beginning of the year. My body has changed lately and I don't mean just added weight; suspect it has something to do with ageing. Sometimes being a woman is both interesting and frustrating at once.

Cap Reverse BigBang is on Tumblr. I haven't read any fics yet, just browsed through the accompanying art. Though it's unkind to say this but some of the art is pretty bad^^

Elysium (2013): A surprisingly serious film with plenty of social and political commentary on issues such as capitalism, overpopulation, affordable healthcare, etc. It definitely left me with some thoughts afterwards. I mainly watched it for Jodie Foster and William Fichtner who steal the scenes they're in.

Mr. Turner (2014): Timothy Spall aka Wormtail from the Harry Potter films stars in this  biographical drama about the life of painter J. M. W. Turner (1775–1851). While it's undoubtedly beautifully shot, it has the least amount of dialogue I've seen in anything short of an action movie and that detracted from Spall's acting as he was barely given much material to work with. The film also doesn't paint a good picture of Turner as a human being; I certainly had no empathy toward him.

Cinematography and atmosphere are important but this film lacked any real substance to it. It felt flat.

I have mixed feelings about this instalment. It's just not the same without Paul Walker.

Vid's Title: We Walk Fast
Vidder: SecretlyToDream
Fandom: White Collar
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=je1h-2jVBfw

This is simply gorgeous. From the haunting song to the evocative feel of the scenes and the light in each clip is beautiful, the symbolism and few spoken lines are devastating. I've only watched the first season of WC but damn this vid packs a punch. Highly recommended!

Solitude has but one disadvantage; it is apt to give one too high an opinion of one's self. In the world we are sure to be often reminded of every known or supposed defect we may have.

This is something cute to read in the morning: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39807757

Funny how the film industry works. I think Liam Neeson is getting more roles as he ages than when he was young. Not that I'm complaining of course^_~

I’m Nobody! Who are you?
Are you – Nobody – too?
Then there’s a pair of us!
Don’t tell! they’d advertise – you know!

How dreary – to be – Somebody!
How public – like a Frog –
To tell one’s name – the livelong June –
To an admiring Bog!

This week has dragged on. I feel tired for some reason, likely work stress and that time of the month approaching. Need to do grocery shopping because somehow I ran out of salt AND sugar together *blinks* and the refrigerator looks empty too. This is without adding the need to buy new clothes that fit as recent survey of the closet revealed my clothes are all a little dated, short, or tight >_< I'm going to mentally prepare myself before entering the mall this weekend.

Of course all I really want to do is check the Flist and read fic.... *sighs*
