HI!

So, as many of you know, I have wanted to change my LJ name for about six years. That's what happens when you pick your LJ name on a whim, don't plan for it to be where you build a significant chunk of your online identity, etc. When I picked "pervyficgirl," I only planned on publishing a couple of stories on LJ. The "seedier" stories that Fanfic.net wouldn't allow.

LOL, we all know how that turned out, don't we!

Anyway, I spend most of my fannish activity time on AO3 and tumblr these days and I was changing my AO3 name so that it would match my tumblr identity. While I was at it, I figured, "Oh, what the hell, let's fix that pesky LJ problem."

So, officially:

pervyficgirl = [livejournal.com profile] zarabithia

Everywhere.

I do mean everywhere:

Tumblr | AO3 | Pinboard | Fanfic.net | Dreamwidth | and @gmail, if you're so inclined.

I like things to match! I like not being "pervyficgirl" because that has never not sounded ridiculous. :) If you have any links to any of my fic (or my rants ;) ) the links should still work, because LJ says they automatically forward. If you're curious, the name comes from two of my favorite childhood things: Zarabeth and Bridge to Terabithia.

As DC has proven repeatedly, sometimes you just need a good reboot. :)

Anyway, to celebrate my personal reboot! I might do most of my meta over at Tumblr these days, but let's do a quick and fun meme anyway. That is, if the rest of you haven't moved to tumblr, too. :)

Give me a character and I'll tell you a piece of my personal fanon.(If it's a character with multiple incarnations, such as comics and movies, specifiy which one you mean, please.)
zarabithia: (christmas: starbucks)
Your main fandom of the year?

Marvel. A whole lot of Avengers movie verse and a whole lot of Marvel 616.

Your favorite film you watched this year?

Avengers! Obviously.

Your favorite book read this year?

Do comics count? There is no comicbook question here, so I am allowing comics to count. My favorite comic of this year has been Hawkeye. Dear Matt Fraction, please never stop writing Kate Bishop.

(I should probably read more real books this year. Oh, well.)

Your favorite album or song to listen to this year?

Actually, my cable has a bunch of music "Radio" stations and I've found one that plays nothing but 90s stuff. That has been my favorite, because oh hai there, nostalgia.

Your favorite tv show of the year?

ELEMENTARY.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

OH MY GOD OTHER PEOPLE SHIP CLINT/KATE. Does that count?

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

Finding out that Sam isn't going to play a significant role in the otherwise excellent Post-Brubaker Captain America series. I'm glad that this writer is giving women agency and personalities in a way that Brubaker failed at, but taking Sam away from the supporting cast is a dick move.

Alternately, the huge disappointment that is Hickman's New Avengers. All cocks, all the time. Get out with that shit, Marvel.

Your fandom boyfriend of the year?

Steve Rogers forever and ever. Though I may have been cheating on him with Sam a lot.

(Sam/Steve/Me: OT3 to end all OT3s.)

Your fandom girlfriend of the year?

Joan Watson.

Your biggest squee moment of the year?

Sarah Rogers telling Steve that he always needs to get back up.

The most missed of your old fandoms?

I miss writing Trek fic! Sometimes I miss writing DC fic, but tumblr reminds me every day that DC fandom stared too long into the abyss.

The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?

I want to write Elementary fic, but I'm terrified (NEW SHINY JOY SQUEE HOW DO I LIVE UP TO IT???)

Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year?

Iron Man! Star Trek! Thor! A good year to be a geek!
zarabithia: (christmas: starbucks)
Hi. So I've become one of those annoying Dreamwidth people. Be careful what you mock, you might turn into it? I have no moral outrage at LJ. I just can't really read/use much of their website. Additionally, I spend most of my time on [tumblr.com profile] zarabithia so if you really want to chatter at me, that's where I'll be. If you just want to follow fic, LJ/DW/AO3 will work.

I'll still be cross-posting all my fic to LJ (all of it will be uploaded to AO3 so if you'd rather track it there, that's cool) and sometimes to the LJ communities. But if you want to comment, you'll need to do it on DW, because I need my journaling to be central on one site. Also, I'll only be checking DW for reading purposes, because LJ gives me headaches.

You can post via open ID there, if you don't have an account.

-----

Speaking of dreamwidth, [community profile] fandom_stocking is live, which is awesome.


-------

And finally, a meme to try out the new commenting deal! Give me a character/pairing from any of the following fandoms + a holiday song lyric and I will write you a drabble based on it.

fandoms: Avengers movie verse, Marvel Comicsverse, DCnU (new stuff only, I've left the bad old verse behind), Nashville, Elementary
zarabithia: (young avengers kick ass team)
Yuletide Nominations have started!: Yuletide is a fandom fic exchange for rare and small fandoms. You don't have to nominate to participate, but if there's a tiny fandom of your heart, you should totally go play.

3 ships has also started! I Saw Three Ships is for any fandom, but the large fandoms are: Avengers Movieverse, Chuck, Community, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who, Elementary, Harry Potter, Haven, Hockey RPF, Homestuck, Leverage, NCIS, Once Upon a Time, Star Trek 2009, Sherlock BBC, and X-Men Movieverse. In past years, I've written the big fandoms, but I've also written/requested smaller fandoms like DC Comics. You can request any threesome you want, but if you offer a fandom, you have to be willing to write any threesome they toss at you.

These are awesome things and you should totally play.
zarabithia: (Default)
A. SO, in case you haven't heard, Hawkeye #2 is AWESOME,  and you should definitely read it. Do you like archers? Then you should read it! Do you like ladies kicking ass and saving male heroes? Then you should buy it! Do you like buddy superhero partnerships? Then you should buy it! Do you think that Allan Heinberg's decision to have Kate quit was spectacularly out of character and utter bullshit? Then you should buy it! It only has two issues so far, and it is worth the six buck investment. You don't need to know a lot about either character to love the series, and I guarantee that the issues will make you love them both. And the dog, too.

B. So I've never felt bad about shipping Kate Bishop with ANYONE, and I never will, but if I had? This happened:



So, if I'd had any guilt, it would be gone. College Age. So... I'll get back to shipping her with whomever I damn well please, thanks, and people who have issues with adults fucking can keep being silly.


C. I finally got around to reading Team 7 #0.

I’ll admit this was a whim of a purchase. The only real draw on this team is Dinah, because I either didn’t know they were in the book (Amanda Waller) or don’t much care about them (everyone else prior to reading this issue.)

So it was a “eh, it’s only 3 bucks, I’ll give it a whirl” purchase.

The basic verdict is that I will spend the same 3 bucks next issue. More ramblings are behind the cut.

Spoilers? Not Really Spoilers, it's been out for a while )
zarabithia: (hug: steve/bucky: movieverse)
Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

who is the big spoon/little spoon
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
who uses all the hot water in the morning
what they order from take out
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
who does most of the cleaning
who leaves their stuff around
who remembers to buy the milk
who remembers anniversaries


zarabithia: (avengers: darcy)

So I signed up for hurt_comfort bingo, because it is probably my favorite genre. As is always the case, if you have suggestions for any of the prompts below (pairings, fandoms, etc.) I am open to suggestions!

Prompt Table )



Also: June and July Fic Round-Up (Because I was a slacker and forget to do June)

Until They Can be Made Unbreakable or AO3 Link (Steve/Bucky is the main pairing | Mature | 6058 words | Underage sidekicks having sex, references to conversion therapy, villains being homophobic.) He's supposed to be in prison. Instead, he's watching the Wizard of Oz with a group of teenagers who think he should be a role model.Written for Queer Fest 2012's prompt: "Marvel Comics, Bucky Barnes, That they couldn't change his bisexuality, no matter how hard they tried, was the one act of defiance Winter Soldier was able to show."

Leave the Pieces on the Floor (Ann Raymond/Thomas "Toro" Raymond, Jim Hammond/Thomas "Toro" Raymond, Jim Hammond/Ann Raymond | Teen | 821 words) If anyone deserves a vacation at this point, it's probably Toro. But first, he has some unfinished business to take care of.

In Equal Measure (Bolin/Korra/Asami Sato | Mature | 615 words) Korra, Asami and Bolin share a little down time together.

As Slowly as a Glacier (Clint Barton/Steve Rogers | Mature | 5080 words | Sex Pollen, implied past non-con, references to PTSD)In which Steve tries to date Clint, the Avengers attempt to be helpful in his adjustment to the twenty-first century, and sex pollen almost ruins everything.

Are Heading Home (Kaldur/Steve Rogers | Teen | 495 words) Steve and Kaldur have both won the battles they set out to fight. The price of their victories are nightmares that neither should feel guilty for, even though they do.

Five Times Bucky Made Plans For Steve's Birthday (and One Time He Didn't) (James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers, Thomas "Toro" Raymond/Jim Hammond, James "Bucky" Barnes/Jim Hammond/Namor/Thomas "Toro" Raymond/Steve Rogers | Mature | 2514 words) See Title.

Lovest What is Lovely (Loki/Steve Rogers | Teen | 2951 words) There were some thrown chairs, fights between friends, and a whole lot of drunken party guests. But as far as arranged marriages went, the one between Loki and Steve started pretty smoothly.

zarabithia: (pride: queer legs)
So in the world of important comics news, DC announced that the rebooted Golden Age Green Lantern is gay now. and all I have to say about that is ALAJLDLDJKLALJKAKDSJK YES. PLEASE. THANK YOU, DC. I FORGIVE YOU OF MANY OF YOUR SINS FOR THIS.

I have a lot of feels about how important this is. But instead, I will just say that this is pretty much everything I want from my comic companies, and yet again, why the reboot is 10x better than anything DC gave me before. I was boycotting James Robinson's Earth 2 stuff because Cry For Justice was terrible, but I am tempted. A lot.

And with that, May Fic Round-Up:

Without Good Protection Against Temptation (Loki/Steve Rogers, references to Bucky/Steve | Teen | 1641 words) A/U. Steve does worship the gods. But he doesn't fear them. Written to fill the "infatuation" prompt at love_bingo.

Subject to Change (Steve Rogers/Natasha Romanova, Pepper Potts/Tony Stark, implied Bruce Banner/Pepper Potts/Tony Stark, Natasha Romanova, Steve Rogers, Pepper Potts, Tony Stark, Darcy Lewis, Sif, Maria Hill, Moira MacTaggert, Clint Barton | Mature | 4163 words) Natasha liked having a plan, and her lunch dates were not an exception to that. Everything that happened between those lunch dates, on the other hand, was subject to change.

Five Things Cassie Accomplished When She Didn't Die (Cassie Lang, Kate Bishop, Scott Lang, Wanda Maximoff | Teen | 1738 words) Children's Crusade ended differently and Cassie's legacy continues.

Four Lives Tiana Didn't Have (Charlotte/Tiana, Esmeralda/Tiana, Fa Mulan/Li Shang, Rapunzel/Tiana | Mature | 1815 words) Four alternate universes that Tiana could have lived in.
zarabithia: (steve: frustrated)
So, I wasn't really excited for this film, leading up to it? I have very little faith in Joss Whedon, as he hasn't done something that I've loved 100% since Angel the TV series ended. And I have a lot of other complicated Joss Whedon feelings, so I was nervous.

But oh. I loved this movie very much. Reasons:

Spoilers )

April Fic Round-up:

Did You Think I'd Crumble? (The Give Me One More Shot Remix) (Kate Bishop/Brenda Del Vecchio | Teen | 3691 words) They couldn't stop the last Doom. But they'll stop the next one. Because acceptance might be a stage for people other than Brenda and Kate, but so is quitting. Written for Remix 2012.

Titles (Steve Rogers | General Audiences | 300 words ) Steve's had a lot of titles. Some he likes more than others.

50 Sentences About Kaldur (Kaldur/everyone | Mature | 1639 words| Underage) 50 sentences about Kaldur and his relationships with his teammates.

A Fate Better Than Wisdom (Peter Parker/Steve Rogers | Teen | 1532 words) In which Peter learns how Captain America does it.
zarabithia: (kate: kate/clint fuck yes)

So beginning in August, Marvel is allowing Matt Fraction to write a Hawkeye series that will feature both Kate and Clint. :) While a lot of very bad things can be said about Fraction's writing (and it will be deserved) he is also responsible for the Young Avengers Presents #6 issue, which features a perfectly in character Clint and a perfectly in character Kate.

(Yes, it was also the start of my silly shipping practices, but even without that, that story understood what the Avengers were about more than anything that has been published since ... oh, Geoff Johns left the title. It's epic and awesome and perfect and flawless.)

Relevant quotes:

Singh revealed that in the new "Hawkeye" series, Kate Bishop will appear as the hero's young apprentice. He pointed readers towards Fraction's "Young Avengers" one-shot as a precursor to the kind of stories they'll see when the monthly hits. "Spider-Woman's not going to like that, though," Cebulski said. (source)

Haha, don't ship tease me like that, Marvel.

“He's got some stuff coming up in [Avengers Vs. X-Men] and afterwards he's in a place where he's gotta figure out what he's doing with himself and why. What moves him, what's meaningful for him.”

Similarly searching for purpose, Kate Bishop, former Young Avenger and the Marvel Universe’s other Hawkeye, will quickly fall in with her namesake.

“She's his junior partner, his apprentice,” says Fraction. “It's a very Avengers relationship—meaning Steed and Peel—and she's as adrift as he is. What the hell are these two doing with their lives? Turns out, helping people is what they have to do to get through the night. In costume, in life, doesn't matter. Good guys don't punch a time card at 5:00.” (source)



So, what you're trying to say is that Clint and Kate are going to be spending their nights together? :)

I need this series in my hands right now.

tl;dr: I am going to be writing so much porn from this, you have no idea.
zarabithia: (avengers: wanda)
This month is an epic comicbook TV month! :) So much happy, so little room.



Young Justice: tl;dr )

Ultimate Spider-Man: tl;dr )

Avengers: EMH: tl;dr )

So my girlfriend got a copy of Avengers vs. X-Men (I wasn't going to read it) and can I just say. Bendis, your fetish for making women define themselves as "broken" was old by the last issue of Alias. Also, Vision, you suck. If everyone is going to be this much of an asshole, this event may out-do Civil War in the terrible department. Speaking of, I like how we are just supposed to forgive everyone for everything terrible they did in Civil War (and there was a LOT of terrible) under their own free will (choosing to obey a shitty law is still acting of your own free will) but lol, we can't forgive Wanda, who was being manipulated.

I think at this point, Winter Soldier may actually be one of the happier Marvel books that I am reading. And there's something wrong with that picture.

March Fic Round-Up:

Tiny month, spent writing challenge fic that hasn't been posted yet. Just two fics:


Of Skating, Tentacle Monsters and Zombies (During the Weekend Zatanna Was Denied Each One of Them) AO3 (Young Justice | Dick Grayson/Roy Harper/Kaldur'ahm/Zatanna Zatara | PG-13 | 1154 words) A six month anniversary is a big deal for them. Unfortunately, their plans are interrupted.


It Began with a Nap (Avengers Movieverse | Darcy/Steve | PG-13 | 6675 words) LJ | AO3 Five times Darcy had to sit through a Captain America lecture, five times Captain America had to sit through a Darcy lecture, and the one time they just agreed with each other.
zarabithia: (and then they had sex)
Yes, my failure with them is epic and legendary.  :)

This is for [livejournal.com profile] love_bingo:

Table )

As always, suggestions are open! Nothing's guaranteed, but if there's a pairing/threesome/etc that you'd like to see me tackle, feel free to suggest. 
zarabithia: (clint and steve)
1. I was never looking forward to Avengers vs. X-Men, because it is yet another Marvel event that can be boiled down to "LOLZ, WOMEN'S POWERS ARE BAD, THANK GOD FOR MEN!"

But having read the previews, I am now referring to it as "Captain America vs. Scott Summer's Man-Pain." It makes the event vaguely more tolerable.

2. In seriousness, I think they did a better job in ONE PREVIEW of showing both sides to the "conflict" than they did in all of Civil War.

And I mean, one of them is hanging out with Magneto and is pretty much a terrorist. That's pretty bad, Marvel.

I'm still Team Steve, though. #steverogersisbetterthanyouandsoishismanpain.

3. I generally blame Watchmen for 50% of everything that I've hated in comics since it was published. (aka, let's be ashamed of writing real superhero comics and let's be ~ADULT~ about it, ftr, Miller can have the other 50% of the blame.)

So the idea that Watchmen is so ~sacred~ that it can never be touched is pretty hilarious to me.

4. Apparently they are casting for the CW Green Arrow Show

Oh, my.
LOL What? )

5. I continue to roll my eyes at people who have ~indignant~ rage about the DC Reboot. And this quote that I stole from someone on tumblr pretty much shows why:

“It’s like people who have favourite doctor whos and won’t watch any other doctors’ episodes, well that by itself isn’t so bad, it’s the ones who then go on to rant and rave about how x was the true doctor and noone else will ever be as good and blah blah blah blah abloobloobloo”

Tom Baker is my favorite, but I’ll be damned if I don’t love Doctor Who for Doctor Who.

LOL, accurate.  I mean, I've basically been comparing the rabid anti-reboot people to people who think 2009 movie ruined Trek forever, but the Doctor Who thing works even better.

(Yes, I am a judgey bitch, thanks for asking!)

And now we'll end on a positive note with a meme:

Give me a character, and I'll list my five favorite pairings and/or platonic relationships for them.

zarabithia: (remy: sin)
Things which are neat and new:

1. Porn Battle is accepting prompts! Prompt Post on LJ | Prompt Post on DW

2. [livejournal.com profile] bucky_kink has started. It's a kink meme for Bucky Barnes, and apparently accepts any version of him. It's kind of small so far, but looks promising. More Bucky fic can never be a bad thing! Kinky Post | Fluffy Post
zarabithia: (avatar: ot3)

So,[community profile] 3_ships stories are up!

So many threesomes/moresomes in many fandoms. 

Go forth, read and comment! :)  







This entry was also posted on Dreamwidth. Comments are welcome on either site.
zarabithia: (AAAAAAAAAAAAH)
Dear Marvel,

Fuck You.

Sincerely,
Me.

P.S.
to everyone in fandom who is "relieved" or "happy" about these developments: i hope all your favorite all-mighty cocks get killed off.
