shallowness: Sky High's Warren Peace smiling (Warren Peace smiles!)
I posted a ficlet yesterday: I Like The Way You Move, MCU, Thor/Jane you suck at dancing but you’re doing it in the middle of a bookstore to the crappy music on the radio and I think it’s pretty damn cute au.

I started drafting a fill (the prompt is the summary) last autumn when I saw it, and it sat there for months. I really went at it this month and came up with a title and a way of ending it. This was done entirely on the laptop. I’m not happy about the probable lack of Thor/Jane in Thor: Ragnarok, hence the fluff - inasmuch as I need an excuse to write fluff. Some feelings about bookshops may have crept in also.

Marvel thing no. 2 is Spider-Man Homecoming. Look, I wasn’t excited about this film; I was planning on going and seeing it, yes, but not in any desperate hurry to do so, because I was around for the two previous cinematic iterations, and while I intellectually get why Marvel were so excited to get their biggest superhero into the MCU (which the title encompasses. although it’s not an aggressively meta film by a comic book superhero movie in 2017 standards), I am getting older and more grumpily distant from Peter Parker and the preteen boys who probably love Spidey the most.

But, this weekend, the other option was Dunkirk, which I do want to see, but it’s an intense war movie. So I chose the lighter fare, aware that this has had decent reviews. And as it also has MCU developments and I wanted to give it a thumbs up, here’s my review.

I dearly hope I get through to the season finale unspoiled – I saw a suggestive headline about season 5 and I don’t want to know anything about that yet!

I then gave Fearless a try, and Helen McCrory is certainly compelling as Emma the Lawyer. I have a feeling that there is no way it will all come together in a way that makes sense at the end of the series, though. casting spoilers and my reaction to them )

I dipped in and out of the One Love Manchester benefit concert, but from what I saw and heard I thought Ariana Grande stepped up remarkably.

Well after anyone else I have started watching NCIS: LA. It’s not hard, along with all versions of CSI, Law & Order and the Chicago shows, Five/Five USA shows all the NCISs too. I avoided NCIS because of Michael Weatherly, tbh, and did not realise that they go undercover a lot in the spin-off. A LOT.

Trailers: a scene from Pirates of the Caribbean: this is the last one, honest which featured intriguing beasties and not enough Barbossa, but I think I’m bound to see it anyway. There was also a trailer for Spider-Man vs. Iron Man that left me underwhelmed, but conversely, I think I want to see Baby Driver (Edgar Wright mashes up The Fast and the Furious and Drive?) now.
