Blame whitey

etc // got something for ya!
I'm not sure what it says that every time I see a commercial for a new fall series (i.e. Scorpion, Constantine, Forever, Gotham, etc) without hearing in my mind the screeches of the Tumblr SJW that OMG SO MANY WHITE MEN, IT BURNS US, PRECIOUS.

Now to go watch the new episode of Outlander, which also has a deplorable lack of both ethnic minorities and canonically LGTBQ characters.

Okay, y'all. The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker. I think in some places it's classed as YA but it's not quite as innocent as that. Magic and seduction and discovery and isolation and I pretty much did nothing but tear through it all today.

Now I have to figure out what to read now *weeps quietly*

MCU Fic: Half Measures (1/1)

movie // avengers // i f**king love you
Title: Half Measures
Author: Alli Snow
Pairing/Characters: Clint/Natasha
Word Count: ~1700
Rating: M
Author’s Notes: Just a post-CAWS thing that happened.
Summary: "You don't know me," she says again. "You've never even seen my file, have you? The whole thing," she interjects, when he opens his mouth to contradict her. "Unredacted." If he hasn't, he's one of the few left in the world with any interest in the subject. Any questions, Clint? Just let me Google that for you.

So I binge-watched The 100 and I thought it was pretty good. I mean, if you ignore the quasi-scientifical stuff and just accept that everyone looks way too makeuped-and-blowdried most of the time and also spoilerCollapse ) but really for the most part it exceeded my expectations in terms of characterization which, let's be honest, is the most important thing. And the finale cliffhanger was pretty damned interesting (although super reminiscent of the end of Resident Evil).

However, no interest in looking into fandom because besides every manner of slasher I would also have to contend with Bellamy/Clarke and I can just not get behind that.

I've discovered imgur and I think it's my new favorite site. More updates than IWSMT, more interesting comments, and they totally get my simultaneous feelings of fascination and abhorrence when it comes to tumblr.
