in case you were curious...

The (heavily summarised) Current State of Me:

* Workworkwork^
* Readreadread
* Ocassionally make a shiny thing involving paper and glitter
* Develop a mild crush on Andrew Garfield and feel very relieved that he is in fact only a year or two younger than me. (New Spidey movie reboot? Not actually bad at all)
* Sleeeep.

Writer's Block: Superman

Are you an avid reader of comic books, or were you at a previous time in your life? Who is your favorite comic book superhero of all time?

Like I could let this question go?

'Avid' sees to be a pretty good term for my reading relationship with comics right now and perhapts to a lesser extent over the last 10(?) years or so. Now that I have job security I can afford to indulge my hobby a little more, and quite frankly I love it. :D

Favourites favourites... Hmm. Let's see. Now whilst most of you know that I adore Deadpool/Wade Wilson to a borderline unhealthy extent, his name isn't the first to pop up when someone asks me about a superhero. He can be a hero sometimes (he's saved the world and everything), he can also be an utter villain when you turn the next page, but more often than not he's a deeply flawed wiseass jerk and that's why I love him. He's not, however, the one I'd want watching my back.

Yup - the answer's in my icon. Spider-Man. Why? Because as much as I still have a huge soft spot for Supes, Bats, Cap, She-Hulk, hell - Wolverine (I could go on for a while), none of them make me care quite as much. Spidey is my hero, because Peter Parker is too. ♥

tell me tell meeee

So, should I sign up for marvel_bang?

Or more aptly, should I sign up for the Bang and literally be the only person (so far) who isn't going to write something with any Avengers in it? I mean, I don't really care that much about being in a teeny tiny minority, but I did have to very carefully scrutinize their profile to check that non-movieverse was actually allowed. No, I'm not being catty, I really wasn't sure. (I'm still not 100% convinced tbh.)

Ironic icon is ironic.

Been ill most of the day - nausea, headache, not very fun. And decidedly unusual for me because I just don't ever tend to get ill. Despite appearances to the contrary I'm freakishy healthy. I don't catch colds, diseases, never broke a bone, and of course my all time favourite doctor's compliment has been 'Wow. You scar really well.' Well gee, Doc. I'm blushing.

In unrelated news - Ryan Reynolds, I honestly love you and think you are Beardy McSexypants, but for the love of dodgy Scots accents, I really don't think you should be in the new Highlander movie. IO9 puts it best in their headline: Ryan Reynolds is the frontrunner for the Highlander remake — just let him be Deadpool, dammit!

Then again, I don't really think there should necessarily be a new Highlander movie. Eh, we'll see.

holy multiple fanfic readers batman!

Over 50 hits on an old small fic of a niche pairing which I only very recently put up on AO3?! And kudos left, even?


Yes - I know a lot of you reading this will have hundreds (if not more) of hits on your works, but for me this is kind've amazing and awesome. It's almost given me the courage to post something of the same pairing which I'm convinced that only three people ever read (two of them being me and my beta o' awesome) and still feel a little iffy over.

it's also provided encouragement to write and practise more, and hopefully improve my skills (such as they are). Thank you A03 and your wonderful readers. :D

...er, icon only somewhat slightly related. I just... Chris Hemsworth's smile does things to me. Gah!

Finally started posting a few fandom fics to A03. Yay? Hoping this will somehow help the creative juices.

And if you're interested, my username is the same as here.

Off to do writerly things. Like stare at a blank page for half an hour.
