* My Tumblr is just GotG2 gifs for days. Gosh, I love that movie so freaking much. I can't wait to buy it and watch it a million times.

* I just found out that Kraglin, the guy from Yondu's ship, is director James Gunn's brother. This was very weird to realize. And he looks so normal on his wikipedia page! And kind of cute!

* It took me so long to find porn fic that actually served its intended purpose for me. When I finally found some, I was like, "Oh, is this why people write so much porn?!" It was such a novel experience. But the chances of me just stumbling across my kinks in the wild are next to nil, so in the meantime I still read around the edges of a lot of PWPs, hoping for feelings.

* I don't know if this is going to make any sense, but: I think Stephen King tricked me into reading literary fiction. His books are so much closer to literary fiction (as a marketing genre) than anything else I regularly read. The care he takes with characters and with the details of everyday life feels nearer in spirit to the kind of stuff I used to read in lit class than it does to the SF or fantasy or historicals or even other horror-type work that I read. It's just that most people don't notice because he puts monsters in them - monsters which he isn't actually particularly good at, in my opinion. And his worldbuilding is paper-thin. But his characters, my gosh.

* Do people still like to hear about comics? I've read a ton of Image/Dark Horse/other indy comics lately, but IDK if anyone cares anymore.

I like reading about comics! I tend to read in lumps.

I think Sean Gunn also acts/plays Rocket on set.

I read a great comment on what makes King's writing so close to literary, which is his quick ability to get to the "why" of a character's motivations and actions. The example the comment used was someone wanting to climb Mount Everest. Did they want to climb it because they're a 20 year old who can't conceive of their death? Someone from a minority population who's doing it without oxygen to draw attention to their people's struggles? A 50-year-old who's buying a packaged tour because it'll make them seem more impressive to potential clients? King would get right into the heart of the character.

Which is to say - yes, absolutely he goes for literary fiction characters inside horror novels. He really knows how to listen for the small details.
