Oh. My. God, everyone, it was basically exactly what you'd want from a Spooks movie. It was RIDICULOUS. It was AMAZING. There were fights. A whooooole bunch of people got shot. People get questioned A LOT. Things went boom. London (love of my life) looked fantastic.


Also now I've linked to this on [livejournal.com profile] spooky_doings I feel obliged to say: 1) this is overexcited word vomit, not a sensible review and 2) I have a terrible memory and have probably got stuff in the wrong order/forgotten things. 

In conclusion: go see it, but go see it expecting a very long episode.

As you may know, [livejournal.com profile] delgaserasca has posted about a Spooks rewatch over on[livejournal.com profile] spooky_doings and as I have the day off today I decided I'd make a start (I will inevitably fall behind and not finish this thing in time for the film release, so nobody expect anything from me). 

Episodes 1 and 2 )

Quick quiz: can I finish all my fics before the movie comes out? (answer: hahahahahahahaha fuck no)

hestia8: (Default)
I have somehow fallen into writing a Rivers of London series/Luther crossover (yes on top of all the other wips, yes the list is still stupidly long, yes I am an idiot I know).

I imagine the audience for this fic is fairly tiny given the sizes of both fandoms, but if anyone out there is a) familiar with both canons and b) wouldn't mind some fic discussion, do let me know in the comments :) 

(hopefully will be posting some general meta/rambling about the Rivers of London series when I've read the third book)

Hoping to post some other fics soon - at the weekend maybe? One fic is getting pretty damn close to being posted without a title, and there's another I need to fix but that can be posted pretty quickly after that. I might also be doing a fic amnesty thing at some point, as even I have to admit some of these things aren't going anywhere and I'm trying to concentrate on getting some long fics done.

Oh, and while I'm here, I've got a pair of fics bookending Spooks series 9 (first one takes place in between s8 and 9, second immediately after s9 finishes). They've had a beta and I've made some changes but they could do with another read through to make sure things make sense - anyone interested? TIA :D 

ETA: BOOKENDING. ENDING. NOT BOOKMARKING. FFS. (took me 3 days to notice, though)

Fic! Actual fic!


Spooks, post s9 AU.

That little fic meme everyone's done:

1. Go to page 7 of your most recent WiP
2. Count seven lines down
3. Copy and paste the next seven lines of text

“I’ll explain in the car. We need to get out of here. You can walk, right?”

He can, just about, but he’s leaning heavily on her as they get out into the sunlight, and he closes his eyes against the brightness.

“Why couldn’t we wait in there?”

“Some Russians wanted to kill us, and you can call me crazy but I don’t like hanging around when that’s the case.”

“What happened to them?”

HAHAHAHAHA, it's always the Russians. The section this comes from might get junked entirely, tbh. I'm not sure it works anymore.

Title: Stuff and Nonsense
Notes: Stupid title, I know. But: AU fics that are being posted here and abandoned to the ether. Just noodling about. The Spooks ones are mostly delgaserasca’s fault (hope you feel better soon!), the Luther one is my weird brain. Counting these as fic amnesty as well, so if you fancy playing about with the ideas, go right ahead. And obviously, unbeta’d.

In my defence, my body was reacting violently to something I ate while this was on yesterday, so it wasn’t *all* my usual obliviousness.

(a fair bit of it was my usual obliviousness though, I'm not going to deny that)

Wasn't organised enough to get this done before 1003 was on.

This is the 'paying attention' rewatch.

Basically this is because I am on holiday and have had time to watch AND make a post, hahaha. Enjoy :D

OH MY GOD THIS SONG. And the video. And Rory and Amy omg.
You Told The Drunks I Knew Karate by Settiai http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7f1pC8-YGGI  

Another OH MY GOD THIS SONG. Ok, full disclosure, I love, love, love this song and the original video is no longer on YT (no idea why). But it has been used for a fanvid for…whatever the fuck this is. I don’t even know, people. But the song is ace.
Dressed to Kill by bobweiszsucks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fc0ljCjqIhQ  

This one I linked to on Twitter for Spooks people as a nostalgia hit. If you do not follow me on twitter, or you do follow me but didn’t click this link, you really really should. You will spend a lot of time during and after this vid going ‘OH TOM QUINN!’ and being shocked at how young they all look.
And my goodness, it made me want to attempt to make vids again (like I have the time for that).
Hatred by legoline http://legoline.livejournal.com/1208669.html

Ok, so due to being on holiday I have had the time to faff about and click on links and stuff, and this next rec was a random clip. I hadn’t heard of the film before watching the video, but as soon as I finished I went onto Lovefilm and added it to my list.
(also, Spooks people, just in case you were wondering, yes, everything involves Russians and to prove it, they are in this film)
Lose My Breath by deidre_c http://deirdre-c.livejournal.com/417337.html

Another awesome random click: Eddie Izzard fanvid! Awesome.
Do You Want To? By danegen http://danegen.livejournal.com/115638.html

Terminator (movies) vid: brilliant look at Sarah Connor and I love this song so much.
L.E.S Artistes by cherryice http://fv-poster.livejournal.com/60351.html  

So saaaaaaaaaad. Eureka vid, Henry/Kim
The Phoenix by china_shop http://china-shop.livejournal.com/647726.html  

Scott Pilgrim vid! Awesome and fun.
Make it Pop by fizzyblogic http://fizzyblogic.dreamwidth.org/395055.html  

Oh, now this. THIS. I loved Thor, but do not in any way ship Thor/Loki. That does not affect my enjoyment of this vid at all. It looks gorgeous and fits the song so well.
Set Fire To The Rain by talitha78 (remastered by isagel) http://isagel.livejournal.com/266619.html   

Forgot this one. XMFC crack. V funny :D
There! Right There! by TIzumis http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJo4i2r0G_M&feature=player_embedded

 Possibly more to come if I can find the links. Ahem.

Just some rambling. Please no spoilers past the 1002 trailer in comments. Thanks!

Soilers for 1001 )

I probably won’t be doing the recaps while the series is on, mainly because I am away for the first one, and I am busy at work, and my skin is still being weird (and affecting my mood/concentration etc). I will get them done eventually, though (along with series 2 and 805). I will still do numbered reaction lists and ramble about things anyway, just not in recap format/length.

I am still a bit stunned this is series ten. TEN. WHAT.

So it turns out I am going to ramble about Spooks spoilers, hurrah! This was unexpected, because I was fairly meh on the whole thing until I watched that 2-minute clip from episode 1, and then BAM. Hello, usual obsession.

(let’s just call this Han’s official How Can I Read So Many Spoilers And Still Get It All Wrong? post)

In no particular order:

Lots of spoilers )

Before I sounds a bit hyper/loopy, I am much better at the moment. The likely allergen seems to be moisturiser, and as long as I don't use it, things seem to be much better. And I have been able to catch up on sleep, so I can think again, which is lovely. Trying to finish some fic, but I'm having the usual working-on-20-things-at-once problem. Sigh. 

In other news, I have the internet at home! Woop woop. I have spent tonight faffing about, but soon I need to get on with setting up selling my cards (need to buy some card bags, actually) and setting up a photo blog, and then...yeah. More faffing, I guess.

Oh, and feedbacking stuff too, I need to get waaaaaaay better at leaving feedback.

Recently I have set up two tumblrs that you may be interested in, if you find the whole Texts From Last Night meme as amusing as I do:

textsfromthameshouse.tumblr.com (Spooks, with occasional Engrenages)

(intro post: textsfromthameshouse.tumblr.com/post/7117184759/icon-hello)

luthertexts.tumblr.com (Luther)

(intro: luthertexts.tumblr.com/post/7235692490/was-going-to-do-an-intro-post-but-tbh-its)

So that's fun right now :)

Ok, I'm off to read X-Men fic. Woo. 

June 2017
