Taylor Swift makes amazing life choices sometimes. The accompanying music video to her new single, Bad Blood, is the most glorious thing. She clearly decided that what she wanted to do was recruit all her favourite lady models, actors and musicians and have them all play high femme leather-clad assassins with a bunch of cool tech in a post-apocalyptic landscape where the only man left alive, apparently, is Kendrick Lamar.

This has a good breakdown of the cast of the video. Pretty sure it's the only time you're going to see Cindy Crawford, Jessica Alba, Hailee Steinfeld, Ellie Goulding and Ellen Pompeo in the same place.

What a world. I need this to be a major fandom for Yuletide.

Watch on youtube, or embed under the cut.

MCU Kissing Fest, 2015 edition!
default [trufflehog]
such_heights
So in 2012 I ran a kissing comment fest and everyone seemed to have a good time. (And yes, lol, I did at that time believe I'd stop caring about superheroes by the end of the summer.) Let's try again!

Everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe applies, so that's all 11 films as well as Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter and Daredevil. Assume that comments may contain spoilers for everything.

THE RULES:

01. Leave a comment with two or more characters from the MCU who you'd like to see kiss. You can include a prompt if you like as an optional extra for the prompt-filler.
02. Reply to the comment with a fanwork in which those characters kiss. The kissing can be platonic or romantic, on the mouth or the cheek or the forehead or the shoulder or anywhere else that you like.
03. All fanworks welcome, including art/podfic/vids/icons/recs/meta/fic etc. Multiple fills for the same prompt are fine. Replying to your own prompt is fine. Anon commenting is fine. Coming back and posting a fill two months later is fine. Posting your fanwork elsewhere is fine.

I will link to fills in this post as they come in.

FIC: The Devolution of Muggle-Magical Relations (Harry Potter, UK Politics RPF)

So it turns out political despair is what will finally get me writing again? I've got nothing.

The Devolution of Muggle-Magical Relations
Harry Potter/UK Politics RPF ; Hermione Granger, Nicola Sturgeon ; G, gen, 800 words ; also at the AO3

An unofficial sequel to [personal profile] raven's a historic and seismic shift.

Hermione can feel herself physically bristling over the morning papersCollapse )

Election Night

Okay, here we go! Who else is staying up to watch the UK general election? Exit polls look worrying and suggest another Conservative government is likely, but it's not over yet, and in the meantime I'm looking forward to hearing from Sheffield Hallam and South Thanet, and the fates of Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage especially.

Here's the BBC livetext feed.

eta: tumblr is bringing the lulz in this time of strife, reblogging the good stuff.

eta2: welp, it's 3am, the Lib Dems are being annihilated, Labour are underperforming, meanwhile Scotland have collectively decided 'fuck this shit' and are doing the electoral equivalent of sawing through the boundary and setting out to sea, not that I blame them. *starts drinking*

Why I loved Natasha in Age of Ultron

such_heights
Everyone's reactions to Age of Ultron are pretty much the epitome of 'mileage varies', not to mention that we all watch different things and take away different things. That's great, and I don't want to tell anyone that their opinions are wrong, but I do find myself in disagreement with many of them. See, I loved Natasha's arc in Age of Ultron, and here's why.

odds & ends

such_heights
+ [personal profile] happydork and I successfully moved house and are settling in nicely to East London. It's simultaneously very strange to have left [personal profile] purplefringe, Awesome Housemate K and the cat behind (though to be fair I still see them lots), and very nice to be setting up our own place. Our decorating scheme is ALL THE COLOURS, and everything's very light and airy. Also now full of giant beanbags. Today we got bookshelves and finally unpacked our books, which instantly makes everything look better. Home is where my Harry Potter books are.

+ Having some time out from work is working out pretty well for the moment - I have been spending lots of time setting up the flat and installing things, and I'm feeling a lot better in pretty much every conceivable way compared to a month ago. But on Tuesday I'll be signing on and then it's job hunting a go go. I still don't really know what it is that I want to do, but there are a couple of job ads that look promising in the meantime.

+ I am slowly trying to get myself to remember how to string sentences together. I barely write any more; no fiction, no journal entries, and even my tweets are mostly retweets or replies to other people. So, hi, internet. I miss you. Let's chat more. <3

call for Vidukon premieres about trans characters
default [trufflehog]
such_heights
Hi gang,

I'm putting together a trans/genderqueer/nonbinary vidshow for Vidukon this year and would love to hear your suggestions for existing vids, and to see if anyone could be tempted to make a brand new vid for the occasion! The deadline is May 1st, and I'd love anything. A RPF vid about Laverne Cox and Janet Mock and their #girlslikeus work, an angry vid about how shitty Max's storyline in the L Word was, a multifandom vid about awesome genderqueer characters - anything and everything would be fab! Any length, any source - would be delighted by short vidlets as well as full-length vids.

If you have an idea, let me know at such.heights at gmail dot com, and I'd be delighted to chat it over with you.

In the meantime, please rec me stuff - self-recs encouraged. :D
