a higher form of war by gdgdbaby
Fandom: The Avengers
Pairing: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Summary: The first thing that occurs to Tony is that the deflector shields are down. The ship is motionless, a sitting duck—a flying duck, as it were.

He jettisons up. His black pirate flag's peppered with bits of neon paint—in fact, the entire topside of the helicarrier is splattered haphazardly with broken pellets and streaks of color. The UN flag's been torn in half and is fluttering half-mast, which means they're probably breaking about ten different maritime laws.

A giant paintball war on SHEILD's Helicarrier, all in pursuit of "the prize". Tony and Steve didn't even have to fuck for me to decide that this was the absolute best. thing. ever.

and it's breaking over me by ashcheche
Fandom: The Avengers
Pairing: Bruce Banner/Clint Barton
Summary: It’s a smoky, gritty dive bar, the sort you only find when you’re actually looking for somewhere disreputable, and the sort that usually turns out to be quite reputable in its own way after all. Clint stumbles into it accidentally on purpose.

“What's your name,” Clint says, adding a little belatedly, “I’m Clint.”

“Bruce,” the man says, and reaches forward to pluck the cigarette from Clint’s fingertips. He takes a deep pull, then purses his lips - Clint gets a little distracted - and blows a smoke ring; it’s a little crooked, maybe a little smudgy around the edges, but still.

Hey, fic recs are mostly copy-paste, so. Plus, this was too good to lose.

So, not dead. Great appreciation for all my well-wishers, both online and irl. Although, now that I'm laid up, everyone seems to find this a perfect time to try and contact me. Is it because of the drugs? Who knows.

This is short, because typing one-handed sucks. Fallout and Netflix are featuring heavily into my recovery period.

In the meantime, peace.

Uhm... hi.

So, I'm going to have my shoulder surgery tomorrow, which should be entertaining. NOT. But I may get a working arm out of the deal, so yay for that.

However, a darling uncle of mine once commented that, "every time you go under anesthesia, there is a chance that you won't come back up." And now I can't get that damn sentence out of my head.

This is a very low-risk procedure. I'm not nervous. I'm not afraid of pain. But I am well acquainted with Murphy's Law, so with that in mind, I give unto you all my final will and testament. Just in case.


Also, I wrote my own eulogy because I'm nothing if not morbid.

For my eulogy... )

And in other news, I took off all of my jewelry because I know I'll forget about it, tomorrow, and now I feel naked. :|

I just got finished reading Robert Jordan's Wheel Of Time series. Loved it, but 2013 had better hurry its ass up.

But now I need more things to distract me from finals read. This is dangerous.

And it is dangerous because I find myself randomly torrenting book collections that offer up gems such as:

- The Professor's Secret Passion
- Satisfaction
- Bring The Heat
- Pack Disciple: The Mark Of The Alpha
- Scared Stiff

and oh so many others. And do not get me started on some of the cover art marring my retinas.

So, with all of this in mind, am I going to waste my life reading these little bits of drivel? YOU BET YOUR ASS I AM. I've come across some truly decent stories by braving these depths, and the crap just gives me perspective.

That and I have no pride. All gone.

Society for Barefoot Living

“Going barefoot is the gentlest way of walking and can symbolise a way of living — being authentic, vulnerable, sensitive to our surroundings. It’s the feeling of enjoying warm sand beneath our toes, or carefully making our way over sharp rocks in the darkness. It’s a way of living that has the lightest impact, removing the barrier between us and nature.”

— Adele Coombs, “Barefoot Dreaming”

... thanks for ruining it, guys. ::wears All-Stars for the rest of life::

Sidekick by Closer
Fandom: The Avengers/Suits
Pairing: Mike Ross/Tony Stark, Harvey Specter/Tony Stark, Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Mike Ross/Harvey Specter/Tony Stark, Donna (Suits)/Steve Rogers
Summary: Harvey Specter wasn't the rich renegade badass that plucked Mike from his potential life of crime.

Tony Stark was.

In which there are explosions, kidnappings, redheads, and SHOTS. I haven't the words to describe exactly how awesome this is. You will just have to trust me, here.

Eh. I'm pretty sure I fail as a 'sensitive human being'. And I care not at all.

My school has had a recent outbreak (read: two instances) of finding small nooses hung in random places. I saw one of these hanging on a sign, myself, and remembered thinking, "... I wish I knew how to tie a noose. Nooses are cool." And then I went on my way.

But apparently nooses in trees have racial implications. Or, that's how my school is interpreting it. So, after 6 separate e-mails from the school about how seriously they were taking this, I had to sit through a nice, long, touchy-feely meeting for the RAs to discuss why such things were unacceptable. And I was blown. Away.

People were freaking terrified of these little nooses. And I just can't wrap my head around it. There are no leads as to who placed the nooses. There was nothing to imply that it was racially motivated. And when I said as much, I got stared at like I kicked a homosexual puppy.

The conversation I was forced to endure went from the nooses to the god damn Laramie Project, and I wanted to scream.

I'm almost positive that the Salem Witch Trials predate the KKK, but you don't hear me screaming about The Crucible. Not to mention that having conversations like this are like discussing religion. You're either preaching to the convinced or you're not making a dent.

Part of this is clearly the fact that I'm white, yeah okay. Goody for me. But part of it is that I am a bitter realist. People suck, and getting upset when things happen is just dumb. Either do something about it or get over it, because the only thing you can control is yourself.

But what really bothered me was that people started talking, seriously talking about censoring and monitoring student and employee social media, as well as the installation of cameras in all the residence halls. And the Powers That Be facilitating the conversation sighed, like they agreed, like this was something that should happen.

And all I had running through my head was an SNL mash-up of V For Vendetta meets 1984.

Just. AUGH.


my problem with authority called. it wants its movie collection back.

Update: I keep getting FB invites to rallys to protest this "great tragedy".

That actually pisses me off more than anything. A Shakespearean play is a great tragedy. A school shooting is a great tragedy. Your collective overreaction to innocuous stimuli? Is not.

Fucking first world shit, right there.

Pairing: Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Background Steve Rogers/Tony Stark

That awkward moment when you realize that you have been going to the wrong lab section for most of the semester, and no one noticed.

... four more weeks of class. I may or may not make it. -_-
zfreelance: (Meanwhile)
So, in other news, I am decked out in all the nice clothes I own (which equals approx. one outfit, if you don't mind the fact that the back of my shirt is missing) and as much makeup as I can get onto my eyelids because there are 5 more weeks of class, my bank account and bag of fucks to give are equally barren, and I have a test to go fail, and god dammit, I am going to make failing look good.
