In other news, we watched Pitch Perfect tonight. We saw it at the theater when it first came out and it was such a fun little flick and my sister splurged and bought us a 'party pack for girl's night' of Bring It On, Clueless & Pitch Perfect. The thing about Pitch Perfect - besides that Rebel Wilson (Fat Amy) is awesome, Skylar Astin (Jesse) & Ben Platt (Benji) are the most adorable dork boys ever and that holy shit, Brittany Snow (Chloe) should always be a red-head and should get in my bed - is that you can't stop yourself from clapping after every song. I didn't even realize I was doing it, but you just have to clap. Which made it that much more fun when we saw it in the theater, because everyone was clapping and cheering. Huh, I also just realized that earlier in the day The BFF & I had been watching 'Hairspray', which also has Brittany Snow in it. I love at the end of Hairspray, when Tracy goes over to give Corny a hug, and you can see that Corny just genuinely likes this girl. I was like, "Wow, when Link and Tracy get married, Corny is so going to be the one to marry them and it is going to be a fabulous wedding!" And after it was over, The BFF goes, "The best ship you can take out of this movie at the end is Corny/Maybelle," and I was like, "Yes, yes! And you know what? You get the slightly creepy vibe that Corny was having sex with some of those high school girls, in which case, holy shit, Maybelle is going to knock his socks off and he will never be the same!"
And now, have some recs of fic I have read while being sick. This rec list does not have a theme. It seems very random, but that's just how I roll!
Above And Beyond - CW RPS, Jared/Jensen, PWP, AU, Rated: R, 1,100 words - Jared is Jensen's intern and yeah, okay, Jared being all blushy flirty with his boss and Jensen being driven crazy with want for him and then just...Jared calling Jensen 'sir' and 'Mr. Ackles' is just, holy hot shit, that is good for me. Jared is so adorable in this and even Matt Cohen is kind of stupidly cute and you know what? Not even that much sex - it's only an R rating - and yet, one of the hottest things I have ever read.
Bargaining - Buffy the Vampire Slayer/The X-Files, Spike & Scully, Gen, Rated: PG, 1,300 words - This is awesome! It's Spike and it's Scully and omg, the author gets Spike's voice perfectly and Scully's reaction to him is priceless and so Scully and I have reread this fic numerous times. It's hysterical and awesome. The End.
Bored Now - The Avengers, Clint/Coulson/Natasha, Phone Sex, Rated: NC-17, 3K words - I have read some Clint/Coulson but this was my first Clint/Coulson/Natasha fic and holy shit - I thought it couldn't get any hotter and then Natasha walks in the room and hot damn! Coulson and Clint having phone sex while Coulson is in the ops, business voice in full mode for the techs in the room and Clint is just on the other end...holy fucking hell, okay? Plus, perfect dynamic between Clint and Natasha here.
Playing Favorites - The Hobbit, Thorin/Kili, PWP, Possessiveness, Incest, Rated: NC-17, 2K words - Kili is such a brat and I agree with Thorin, he deserves a little punishment! I love how irritatingly smug and flirty Kili is and - no matter how much control Thorin thinks he has - how completely undone Kili can make him. This is fucking hot. I don't know what else to say about it except, it's fucking hot. And also, oddly sweet - cuz Thorin has a favorite and everyone knows it!
Riding it Out - Community, Jeff/Annie, Rated: R, 22K words - This is the fic I read the other night when I had to get into bed early. It was a fun read and I enjoyed it, but I will state that for my personal tastes it had just a little too much internal emotions going on. However, when there was dialogue happening, I was in heaven, because the author gets every single character's voice down to the letter, especially Abed, which is no easy feat by any means. The interactions among the characters were all perfect and I adored the friendship in this between Abed and Jeff. Also, Black Rider. What's not to like about Black Rider?
The Metaphor That Made You - Teen Wolf, Gen, Pack!Fic, Rated: Teen, 2,500 words - Derek and Pups cuddling while he tells them a story! I accidentally saved this to read instead of the story I was going to read, but it ended up being well worth it because omg, the werewolf lore tale that Derek tells the pups is amazing. It's like getting an original fic inside of a Teen Wolf fic! Plus, did I mention the cuddling?
Yancy Becket, Mako Mori At Sixteen - Pacific Rim, Gen, Pre-series, Rated: PG, 800 words - Oh man, I really enjoyed Pacific Rim but I honestly am enjoying the fandom just as much, if not more, and the fic is just lovely and awesome and this one stands out among them and just hits All My Feels in the gut. This is a beautiful character piece for them both, but specifically for Mako because it encompasses so much of who she is on the inside and what drives her, at sixteen but also later in her life, and just the idea of the two of them having crossed paths, no matter how briefly, is all kinds of happy-making. Yancy Becket, I salute you.
I'm off to bed.
