on podfics

Happy Friday, all. It's rainy and gross and I just want to curl up under my blankets in my room with the blinds drawn up so I can see the rain come down and read all day. Or sleep. Both will do equally well. Except I'm at work. D: My only consolation is that I downloaded a couple of podfics last night and will be listening to those today.

I started downloading Steve/Tony ones because I think I may have exhausted the Thor/Loki tag at jinjurly. I'm fairly new to the podfic phenomenon (I know, late as always) so if anyone's got any recs on other places to find said podfics then please share!

I play themin my car on an FM transmitter during the drive and I always wonder what people think when they catch stray snippets on their own transmitter. Lol. I especially wonder this when during a sex scene. Sometimes I look around at the other cars when I'm at a stoplight and snicker to myself.

Podfics in general make me very happy. I love hearing other people's voices and their accents and inflections and the way they bring life to the characters. It's amazing, really. ♥

In other news, there's this picture of Tom Hiddleston floating around:

In it he's holding up a fan-made Wendy. The first time I saw it I thought it was one of the moustaches I made for projectwendy and I almost had an aneurysm because oh my god Tom Hiddleston touching something I made and holding it up to his face and being all cute and perfect and himself about it. But upon closer inspection, I've concluded that it isn't a Wendy of my own creation. It's for the best, anyway, because I would have lost my shit if it was.

fic rec and hiddles is a life ruiner

Guys. YOU GUYS. You must read this right now:

A Study In Contrasts (or At Your Service)

Harry and Draco are the best of the best in putting up wards to counteract the wonky magic which was unleashed after the final battle – but Harry doesn’t know how to set up boundaries in his own life. Draco finds a way to help.

The above was written for my prompt over at hd_smoochfest and it is perfect. ♥___________♥

You know what (or who) else is perfect? TOM HIDDLESTON. Case in point. Ugh, Tom. I can't with you. You have been the quickest and surest life ruiner ever. This is my exact reaction to everything you are:

thor/loki recs?

Paper Monsters by clocks is done. *flails* I remember this being one of the first things I read in the XMFC fandom and have been impatiently waiting for its completion since. I love everything that the author has ever written, especially Our House, in the Middle of Our Street. It's a fic that I can read over and over again and love it more after every reading.

Right now I'm trying to make my way through all the Thor/Loki fics I can get my grubby little hands on. :D :D :D Avengers fans on my flist, got any Thor/Loki fic recs for me??! Tumblr's been doing an awesome job on the fanart front and I've been listening to a podfic of Chaos War by faviconastolat. But I need fics for reading, you guys!

Also, Hiddleston. ♥___________♥ I never really had much of an opinion of him until I started watching interviews with the Avengers cast and then interviews of him alone being his perfectly articulate and dorky and smiley self. If Tom Hiddleston, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender were ever cast in a movie together I don't think I would be able to handle it. I'd be dead by the time the trailers came out.

There have been some really intriguing things coming from spn_j2_bigbang! xmenreversebang starts posting July 6!

My sister graduated from college a few days ago. Man, I feel old.

all the feels

I am consumed by FEELS., burdened by so many Thor/Loki and Charles/Erik feels. Tumblr is feeding my growing feels with pretty, pretty graphics and gifs and fanart and it's making me want to draw and draw and draw. However, I am not going to until I finish the following arts: Dean/Ruby thing that's has been pending for ages, mcfassy Bruce/Brandon art, and spn_j2_bigbang art.

In case you weren't aware, hd_smoochfest has started posting! I haven't had the time to read any of the fics yet but everything looks good so far. hp_fanart_fest is aslo still in its prompt claiming stage!

AO3 keeps going down and it's putting a real damper on my fic reading ability.

Also, Tom Hiddleston's face and general perfectness is extremely distracting:

In real life things: my friend (the one who partly caused by mini freak-out over marriage last week) asked me to be one of her bridesmaids. She's having a full out Indian wedding and she's promised me henna, saris, Bollywood songs and delicious food. I am terribly excited! :D I've never been to an Indian wedding before but I hear they're pretty epic.

thanks for the bday wishes

Thank you for all your wonderful birthday wishes! ♥! I spent my birthday weekend hanging out with some friends, going to another friend's bridal shower and then going out for dinner with my parents. All in all, it was good. :D

I'd post some pictures from the weekend but I kept forgetting to take pictures so sadly, I don't have any to show. Instead, have a look at these photos, gifs, and interviews of James McAvoy from Soccer Aid. He really is the cutest, most adorable man alive:

update on art theft

Thank you guys for the support in my last post about the art theft. ♥ ♥ ♥ I reported her to dA and while waiting for a response from them, I took naadi's suggestion and PM'd allanaire last night. This morning, all the art was taken down.

I'm still going to report it on stop_plagiarism because people should be aware. I've got my caps all ready and I just have to write up the report.

But yeah, I'm relieved that she took down the art.

On a much brighter note, AVENGERSSSSSS. I just got home from watching it and I'm so full of Loki and Thor/Loki love. ♥____♥ Maybe tumblr persuaded me, maybe I ship them now because I see so much Thor/Loki all over the place that when the mountain scene was taking place my inner fangirl was screaming. And because of tumblr, "Loki'd" kept popping up in my head every time he was on screen.

21 jump street

My ridiculous love for Channing Tatum has grown exponentially after having watched 21 Jump Street. I didn't think I could like this guy any more after The Eagle but then he goes and makes this movie wherein says hilarious things like "I'll beat your dick off with both hands, what's up, let's go" or "You have the right to... be attorney" or does Collapse )

Mr. Tatum, this is for you:

I've submitted my xmenreversebang art prompt. I'm not entirely satisfied with it. There was more I could have done and I had actually planned on it. Oh well. Hopefully it gets picked and then I can make it up to the author for being an awesome person that chose such a sucky prompt by drawing more decent things.

Anyway. The union at my work is having some kind of barbecue thing today (who does this? it's barely 1 °C outside) and I'm crossing my fingers that Hot Classics Grad-Student-Turned-Prof is there. Not that I'll do much except hide behind things and stare at him like a creeper. :|
