snickfic: Peggy in diner, Jarvis behind her (agent carter)
Looking through my bookmarks, I see I have a post's worth of these, and now seems like a good time with the new season starting soon-ish.

In the Apartment After the War by [archiveofourown.org profile] Beatrice_Otter
Angie + Peggy, 3k. Just a little apartment exploration and conversation, in which Peggy opens up a little and we get to see things through Angie's eyes. Great Angie voice.

Living Arrangements by [archiveofourown.org profile] Netgirl_y2k
Peggy/Angie, 3k. Angie notices that they're practically married. It takes Peggy a little longer to figure out. Just sweet friends-to-lovers.

Double Exposure (Ten Conversations) by [archiveofourown.org profile] psocoptera
Peggy/Daniel/Jack, 1.3k. It's lovely to hunt as a pair; she might have prowled with Angie, if Daniel hadn't charmed her. Hot and angsty and succinct. Yow.

too many war wounds and not enough wars by [archiveofourown.org profile] paperclipbitch
Jack/Daniel/Sousa, 7k. D/s and psychological wounds. Very satisfying.

As Real Girls Do by [archiveofourown.org profile] scribblemyname
Dottie Underwood, 1.4k. A sharp, satisfying little character study of a character canon left in desperate need of fleshing out. Brings in some Winter Soldier canon in an interesting way, too.

Apparently those are the two things I'm fannish about right now. Huh.

I finished Agent Carter's first season a week or so ago. Overall, I was utterly delighted by it; it's easily my favorite MCU offering. (Second would probably be CA:TWS.) With Peggy in particular it kept not doing exactly the thing I was afraid of it doing, and this pleased me quite a lot.

finale thoughts )

As for hockey, wow what a game last night. I am kind of cracking up that we lost to the Avs and then beat two of the best teams in the west on back-to-back nights. The last third of that game last night was super tense as it became clear that the first goal was going to be the only goal.

I cannot say enough about Flower. People were saying that was his best game of the year so far, and I have to agree. He looked so good, so calm, such great position and rebound control. None of those LA shots looked even close to going in, despite the Pens' defensive breakdowns.

All that, and he shut out LA both games this season. I am so smug.

Other things that happened )

And this after running all over the top of the Ducks the night before. Good work team.

* Watched Agent Carter (with [personal profile] lettered!!). It's still good. And this ep didn't even spend a lot of time on the thing from the end of last episode that I was expecting and dreading. GOOD WORK TEAM. I think I'll have to buy this show when it's out, so I can lend it to people and as an expression of my appreciation for its existence.

And now some pictures of Geno's face that are currently making me happy. images and gifs, also one of Flower )

Here is a long, multi-thread discussion on f_fa about Jupiter Ascending. This was probably my favorite comment of the bunch:
I was explaining to someone elsewhere about how it's a particular kind of female power fantasy. You get to have all the cool sparkly space princess dresses, but be actually in charge, not just an appendage to your space boyfriend.

And you notice how once she got off Earth, there didn't seem to be any sexism? People were manipulative or abusive or murderous or helpful in all sorts of ways, but it didn't seem gendered in the slightest.


Reasons to Love Agent Carter by Tansy Rayner Roberts expresses perfectly all the things I am loving about that show (although I'm an ep behind - I have ambitions of catching up today).

TV:
Agent Carter - saw the third episode, loved it. Love the Peggy+Angie friendship, love how complicated things are. Jarvis is wonderful. Everything looks so pretty. My feelings are simple, here. Oh, and in this ep we learn that Howard Stark is actualfax Blood Stupid Johnson.

Comics:
Sleepy Hollow - first two issues of a mini by Marguerite Bennett and Jorge Coelho. Two of the things I thought were out were delayed, so I picked these up instead because I'd been eyeing them every time I went in the store. (It was the Phil Noto covers, darn it.) They're a lot more directly tied into the show than I was hoping - a lot of references to stuff I didn't know. The banter is good, though, and Noelle Stevenson (of Nimona) has little two-page mini comics in the back, which was a pleasant surprise.

Copperhead - finished its first arc. I continue to enjoy everything this comic chooses to be. Liked the resolution to the mystery, am intrigued by these "Natives" that we murder with impunity but also have a treaty with and therefore can't prosecute by ordinary means; hope we see more of them. Also needed: more Clara, Broo, Ishmael (desert hermit android!), and Mrs. Sewell.

If this comic has sounded interesting to you at all, definitely check out the first trade when it comes out next month.
