When Oscar season comes around I'm always pretty uninterested in most of the nominees but I always end up having to watch a few anyway.

I just saw Manchester By the Sea and... wow.  It was exactly what I expected.  Fine from a technical standpoint, not all that well put together in my opinion but definitely your classic Accomplished look-how-good movie, and so very, very boring.  I swear the same thing happens every couple of years.  Some drab, depressing movie gets made about a white guy who has a depression beard and acts like a jerk, and the academy flaps around like, "So innovative!"  And it's just not?

That said, I'd be interested to hear what anyone who liked it thought was good about it.  I do understand that a movie can be good without being enjoyable to watch, but this movie just wasn't saying anything new.

Guess who's been forgetting to post regularly again?  It's me!

I'm going to do a post for the shows I'm watching soon.  I'm mainly keeping up with Lucifer (on hiatus until May, sadly, but they got picked up for a third season, so I'm happy about that) and Shadowhunters, but I watched A Series of Unfortunate Events and The OA, I'm just getting caught up on Ripper Street, and I've started Frontier.  So this is my reminder to myself to do that.

While I'm getting that together, though, here's a meme I snagged from megan_moonlight!

Send me a number and I will tell you:

1. Character in my fandoms that I think I’m most like.
2. What character archetype am I attracted to?
3. First ever ship and why.
4. How much has your life change ever since you started fangirling/fanboying?
5. Top 3 Favorite TV shows.

15. Most loathed character. EVER.
16. Favorite villain/s.

Title: So Fair a Gift
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Roxy Morton
Summary: Eggsy is getting a little tired of waiting for a certain someone to introduce himself.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (2,675 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: This is a short AU I wrote a while ago and then forgot about. It's (loosely) based on a prompt from this post: “I am a ballet dancer and I see you every time I perform in the first row and there are flowers in my room every time I perform when will you finally introduce yourself” AU. I've done a lot of theater but very little dance, so I may be making some incorrect assumptions. The title is from, "Your soul is a beautiful thing, child. No emperor received so fair a gift. The angels wept to-night” from Phantom of the Opera, because of course I went there.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: It had been a couple of weeks- all right, three weeks and a day- since Eggsy saw the man first. Eggsy didn’t often look at the audience- it was distracting and unprofessional- but on that particular night Eggsy just happened to glance over and there he was, sitting in the front row with this incredibly intense look on his face. He was well fit, wearing a tuxedo that hugged his broad shoulders and surprisingly slim waist just as tightly as Eggsy would rather like to, with faintly greying hair and these dark, dark eyes.

I'd missed quite a few episodes of this show, and I've been (slowly) getting caught up.  I just love it so much in spite of myself, and I really wish there were more people around who liked it, especially now.

Ever since the show first came along (and for a while before that with other vaguely comparable shows, like Forever) I've been whining and complaining about how much I wanted a show like Lucifer- one with a male lead character who has a lot of exes/current liasons over the course of the show- to just casually turn out to have one (or several) such ex(es) be another man.

And just a couple episodes ago, Lucifer did exactly that!

It's not exactly groundbreaking as far as bi representation goes, but it was still really cool to see that when I'd wanted it to happen so much.  (Although now that I'm on the subject it does bother me that this show gets no credit whatsoever from a representation standpoint even though it's really quite diverse.  It only had the one major character who was a white guy to begin with, and now he is in fact canonically Not Straight... But such is life.)

Does anyone know if you can import new entries to dreamwidth after you've imported your journal already?

I really wish livejournal cross-posted to dreamwidth, because posting here was much easier for me while I was doing the meme (compared to posting on dreamwidth and cross-posting here), and now I'm really behind.

Title: Snowbound
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Merlin, Original Characters
Summary: Considering how many times Harry has almost died in the field, it would be silly to call this his worst mission. It rather feels like it is, though.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Medium (6,033 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: “Wouldn’t it be easier if I was-” Eggsy cleared his throat again- “Harry’s- you know- his date?” Eggsy’s cheeks reddened slightly, but he held his chin high.

Harry opened his mouth to protest, but before he could get anything out Merlin said, “Very good, Eggsy. You’re exactly right. Those are precisely the covers I’ve built for you.” He held out files to both of them. “Happy reading.”

Favourite character that has been with you the longest? (from verdande_mi)

Enjolras from Les Miserables.  I grew up loving the musical, read an abridged version of the book at seven and the unabridged version at eleven.  I've always been crazy about Enjolras.  He's still my favorite character from Les Mis and Les Mis is still one of my favorite things.

I went to see xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and let me tell you I thought it was fantastic.

In general the xXx movies have always brought out a slightly juvenile side of me that is 100% there for a cross between James Bond and the X-Games and wow did this movie not disappoint on that score, but there was also more to it than that.  All the action was great, all the characters were great, Donnie Yen was especially great (and Xiang's dynamic with Xander Cage really did it for me you guys) and there were so many women!

Like, I'm not going to claim it was some kind of feminist utopia, it's xXx, but there were three major female characters who were all well developed, each kickass in a different way, and really supportive of each other- and there were multiple minor female characters none of whom died for man-pain.  I can't really think of another action movie that can say the same, honestly.

Anyway, I think it's a shame that it's not getting much love.  It's not a perfect movie but it was really entertaining!  I spent the whole movie with a stupid grin on my face, and I shipped so many people.
