Title: The People and Frank Castle
Author: egosoffire on Ao3
Fandom: Daredevil (TV)
Rating: PG, I think
Genre: Gen
Summary: Frank Castle encounters the people of Hell's Kitchen frequently, and finds many supporters in his world. A character study of Frank and six of his supporters.
Warning: Spoilers for season.2 of Daredevil

This is a good look into the character of Frank Castle and his actions as interpreted by normal people. It's easy to forget while watching Daredevil that there's a lot of innocent bystanders who all have their own opinions on vigilantes in the midst of the chaos left in their wake.

I enjoyed this Outsider POV fic as I'm currently re-watching season.2 before seeing The Defenders and The Punisher is certainly a character worth exploring in more depth by fanfic writers.

Inhumans

Just returned from seeing Inhumans at Imax 2-D cinema. It looks and sounds amazing; how that will translate on normal TV is another matter.

The film seems to be a compilation of the first two episodes so it's setting things up to interest the viewer in the TV series. I'm personally very interested to see the show when it airs at the end of September. Having a lead character who can't speak is a big challenge for the actor and the script writer, it adds a different dynamic to relationships.

Some critics accused it of being an X-Men clone but it doesn't seem like it. I get the feeling it's a drama with some royal family backstabbing and sibling rivalry like a Shakespeare tragedy waiting to happen. It's too early to say much about it but it does look promising.

PS: Imax tickets are expensive! Other people already know this but this was my first time. Certainly not something to be repeated often.

Yay!

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!

 

Harry!

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

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^_~

Allow me to introduce you to my new crush: Special Agent Alexander Mahone^_~

He makes Snape look mild-mannered in comparison. Why have I not heard of William Fichtner before? A grave oversight on my part that must be swiftly rectified!
lessonsinescapology: (Yay)
So with the arrival of the box set from Amazon.UK, I watched season.1 of Prison Break and by god they just don't make television like that any more! It's not just the utterly brilliant casting of all the actors, but the script is perfect and the cinematography is above par for a TV show even after all these years. Hard to believe the show aired in 2005! It looks and sounds like a Hollywood movie and I mean that in the best way.

I have nothing negative to say about the show, dislike for some characters notwithstanding, and will now venture into season.2! *bounces like a fangirl*

I've been offline for about a week. So the most pressing question is: How's the new episode of Sherlock?!

Just watched the final episode of Yuri on Ice..... That ending caused me to have tears in my eyes, broke my heart, yet lifted my spirits and made me smile like a madwoman! What a brilliant, brilliant series with a great production team behind it.

Excuse me while I go search for tissues..*Chibi Ariss in fangirl mode*

Yuri on Ice episode.11 sent me to fangirl heaven! XD
*Chibi Ariss bounces like a madwoman*

This series is defying all expectations. Such strong writing and direction. I can't remember a show that feels so real and adult, yet manages its humour and fanservice without being offensive. It's certainly the highlight of my week since it aired and its optimism in the face of so much psychological and real life issues that face its characters is uplifting.

Can't wait for next week's episode! XD

Title: Moving In (To Every Single Aspect of Danny’s Life, Including the Boring Bits like Dry-Cleaning)
Author: westgirl on Ao3
Fandom: Hawaii Five-0
Rating: PG, I think
Pairing: Steve/Danny
Summary: It felt wrong for Steve to sound unsure of his place in Danny’s life. His place in Danny’s life was at Danny’s side, driving him slowly insane. Steve should feel secure about that.
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/509563

For some reason, it's really difficult to find good fic in this fandom. Writers just can't seem to strike the same balance between humour and angst as the show does. But this fic is beautiful! It's funny, sad, romantic, and plain crazy at times^_~

The author writes a very in-character Steve McGarrett who is slowly but surely entangling himself into Danny's life in non-typical fashion and poor Danny doesn't seem to know what to do about it! XD I couldn't stop laughing at some parts, while others made me a little weepy. Recommended reading!

I've never heard of this 800 years old tradition but it seems the swans on the river Thames belong to the Queen, killing or injuring these swans is punishable by a six-month prison term and/or a fine up to £5,000, and they need to be counted and tagged. *grins* The swans don't look very happy: http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/36834608

This needs an urban fantasy novel; the swans are actually endangered shape-shifting fae/creatures that only interact with descendants of the royal bloodline who possess a gift for sorcery? Any one wants to write it? Bonus if there's an m/m, human/swan pairing! XD

I'm glad I found this vid since the fandom is still small and doesn't have a lot of fics/vids/etc. This is a great vid that works as a character study of Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold and the song is absolutely perfect!
