*horrified stare*

...I just saw a picture so awful (yet clever) that I had to post it.

...actually, I wouldn't. Poor baby. They need to be loved, not hurt. *hugs imaginary baby*

But anyways. Yes, the cast has been announced, and I'm fangirlboying like nobody's business. But I am also wondering what happened to Jan and Hank. It can't be the Avengers without the Wasp or Ant-Man/Giant-Man/Yellowjacket. Seriously. I can understand the lack of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, but not Jan and Hank. They NEED to be in that movie.

I have a nagging suspicion that they did it because of the required SFX. But still.

Damn I wish I could be at comic-con. I could have met Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans (who has gained muscle mass! There better be some shirtless scenes in the Cap movie!) and SAMUEL L. JACKSON. Seriously, unless you a) live in the US b) have a large sum of money or c) a high-paying job, which is essentially b, you can't attend. Damn. Why can't there be a proper Scandinavia Comic-Con with all of those high-profile celebs? ._.

Dear diary...

Yeah. A friend of mine insisted that I use that for a title sometime. Since he lent me his NTSC PS2 with Wild Arms 5 and Wild Arms - Alter Code: F, I decided to do it.

So, dear diary...

SHS!Cap is so adorable, even his snoring is cute. It seems to be a funny show, and the art style doesn't bother me in the slightest - hell, it wouldn't be so funny without it. Thor as a gamer? Coco von Doom? Cap and Fury singing karaoke? THE PINK SKULL?

I lol'd so much on the last one. (Also, now I'll never get "three valkyrie maids" out of my head...)

First chapter of my fic is done, and now I am working on chapter two. Once chapter one has been looked at completely by a beta (I am so very tempted to contact one more, but I don't know if that's in poor taste) I'll be posting it to marvel_slash and...to deviantArt. I was forced into complying to do this by one of my friends who helped me fix some grammar issues with my fic. She wanted to see it on dA, and who am I to say no?

Also? She broke me. Badly. She noticed some amateur errors that almost had me weeping, because wow, I should not be making those errors. I had to spend half an hour looking at my old grade-A essays to feel better.

I blame the insufferable heat. Now, don't get me wrong, warmth is nice, but...this is too much. I live in Scandinavia. It's supposed to be cold. Not +30 degrees Celsius. I need air conditioning. So far, I only have nature's AC: the balcony door wide open.

Cowhand from Rio Grande.

Fic is on its way, hopefully.

So, yeah (I seem to start most entries/replies that way). There is a good chance that I have finished writing chapter 1 of my untitled Bucky/Tony fic (I really need to think of a title). It's being beta'd by jynx, on Google Docs! Finally got to use Google Docs. Quite nifty. I don't know if it's like Microsoft OneNote, as I've never tried that one.

Anyway. I'm currently working on what might be chapter two, unless it looks better as a part of chapter one. If it doesn't, I have a first chapter that is about 6300 words long. And that's pretty good. Well, for me. I'm not used to writing that much. EVER.

Finished Arkham Asylum! Worth the purchase. It was very entertaining, and Batman is so cool (especially at the end, holy controlled explosion Batman!). He can kill overgrown pods. He's the Goddamn Batman.

'Tis a shame that we never got to see Robin or Nightwing. They didn't even have their own bio. Also, how freaky was the Spirit of Arkham?

I love somewhat old English sometimes.

So, I've started to read Tales of Suspense (recommended by muccamukk ). It has the true (or at least first) origin story of Iron Man. Thank you Marvel Digital Comics.

It's a fun read, and the art is pretty good. The story is compelling. The English is about 50 years old.

Which is why I found this little gem:


Is "Electric Cord" an euphemism for something? Hope he buys you flowers, Tony.

Coming to get ya, Mistah J!

Don't you just love Harley Quinn? From psychologist to psycho in nought point two seconds.

Yeah, I finally bought Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3). It's actually a fun and entertaining game, even if it's only about 10 hours. Not counting the Riddler's challenges and all of the gameplay time needed for a Platinum trophy.

There is something highly satisfying about swooping down from above before unleashing a can of whoop-ass with the Caped Crusader. Or gliding from a gargoyle to deliver a knockout blow to an armed henchman. Not very familiar with the Batman mythos, but I thought Arkham Asylum was just an asylum. I can see why they made Arkham into an island for the game, though.

The character designs are quite nifty, although I find that the artwork looks better than the in-game 3D models (so far. I've yet to see Poison Ivy). The Joker, Harley and Scarecrow don't look like their artwork, though. Joker has more meat on his bones and one scary grin (however, this is one of his better looks, if you ask me. I've seen him in Batman RIP, and holy shit was he scary), Harley is dressed to kill in an outfit that is between a nurse's outfit and her usual red & purple leather costume (but without the hat! It doesn't feel right without her jester hat!), and the Scarecrow looks like a cheap imitation of Freddie Krueger. Still, the designs are nice; the graphics are very sharp in HD. Killer Croc scares the bejeebuz out of me.

I can see why this game got such high scores, and is even in the Guiness Record Book for being the highest scoring superhero game. Groovy, eh? I'm going to get the Platinum trophy for this game. It's going to be fun.

Speaking of fun, Mark Hamill delivers as the Joker. Honestly. The timing and tone of voice is just brilliant. And after hearing him comment on the little scarisode in the asylum morgue (thanks to the Scarecrow), I am left wondering if Batman would be scared of Joker in a thong. I know I would be.

My ego is hurting.

 Yeah. I got, like, 17 or so comments on my Destiel fic, all saying that I did a good job (which I don't really believe, but what the hey. I'm a whore for praise). It made me feel good. Empowered. Not so shitty.

And then I only get four comments (three on my journal, one at a community) on this one. And suddenly, my ego had a heart attack and died violently. Sure, they're positive comments, but still. ._.

What irks me is that no one criticized it. You might think I've gone nuts, but I do like criticism. It tells me what to improve on, and I'm not so far gone as to think that what I write is perfect. Because it isn't. There is always room for improvement. Writing in drafts have taught me that.

...Only four comments. ;_;
