dira: Rose Tyler shines on. (Rose - Shine)
No, really.

This started life as an email to [livejournal.com profile] rubynye, but then I thought, hey, maybe other people would also be entertained by the mental images. And I really really am in the middle of too many other things to try to write this, so I don't have to hoard it away somewhere for feel of spoiling the story. So, here.

The AU where Charles is sort of a porn star and Erik auditions for a role in his next movie. )
dira: Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Default)
Title from Apollo 13: "From now on, we live in a world where man has walked on the moon. And it's not a miracle, we just decided to go."

Thanks to [personal profile] iulia for insisting that I write it, and everyone who audienced!


Charles, Erik. Gen. G. 1000 words.
July 20, 1969. The unity of this instant was amazing.

Not a Miracle )
dira: Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Brad - In the Sand)
Yesterday I drove down to [personal profile] iulia's and we wound up watching three movies together.

First we went out with her husband to see Cowboys and Aliens, which I adored, for lo, my needs are simple: Daniel Craig wore chaps and had a blaster gun and was a morally ambiguous badass woobie. The dog didn't die. SOLD.

The hilarious part of going to see Cowboys and Aliens was this: I have a full-body startle reflex that kicks in when I'm watching movies. I think it mostly only happens in the theater, where I get sufficiently immersed in what I'm watching. When there is OMG UNEXPECTED ALIEN, I jump in my seat and throw both arms up to face-height. The hilarious part is this: I also had that exact same physical reaction during the previews, when there was OMG UNEXPECTED ALEXANDER SKARSGARD in the trailer for Battleship.

(Nice, lovely, Navy guy OMG YAY unexpected Alexander Skarsgard, just so we're clear. But I had exactly the same startle reaction anyway.)

(Also amusing, I think there were True Blood fans sitting a little way behind us, because toward the end of the trailer I heard "It looks like him. But isn't he Swedish?")



Secondly we went back to Iulia's and watched a DVD I had checked out of the library and must remember to return tomorrow: I Love You Phillip Morris.

a) This is a scrweball comedy (based on true events) about the epic gay love of Jim Carrey's character for Ewan McGregor's character. THEY FALL IN LOVE WHEN THEY MEET IN PRISON. THEY WRITE EACH OTHER LETTERS. THERE IS RUNNING ALONG A FENCE YELLING AT THE PRISON BUS. THERE ARE LOVELY GUYS DOING STUPID, STUPID THINGS FOR LOVE. EWAN MCGREGOR DOES AN ADORABLE SOUTHERN ACCENT. THERE IS SOMETHING SORT OF FASCINATING GOING ON WITH THE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE EX-WIFE, I MIGHT EVENTUALLY HAVE THINKY THOUGHTS WHEN I STOP CAPSLOCKING.

b) WHY IS THERE NO FIC FOR THIS MOVIE ON THE AO3 YET. WHYYYYYYYYY.

c) Due to a certain affinity of tone, Iulia and I have already plotted out a crossover with The Big Lebowski.



Thirdly we watched X-Men: First Class in an unspecified but totally not illegal way.

ERIK LEHNSHERR ILU. WHAT WAS I JUST SAYING ABOUT MANPAIN AND HOT HOT COMPETENCE.

Then this morning I read my first piece of XMFC fic, What Not to Expect When You're Not Expecting and now I fear I have been ruined for all other fic, in this fandom or possibly all fandoms ever. <3________<3

But, you know. Feel free to rec me things that will prove me wrong.
