Oh, yeah, and also, I finally got my ten-year French immigration card. No big. I've only toiled and suffered for more than six years (more than twelve, if I count my years of uni) to obtain it but it's fine (call me THE MOST PERSISTENT MOTHERFUCKER you know, humor me)

Un autre rec post mastoc rédigé pour la communauté [livejournal.com profile] amour_de_fans

Je ne suis pas sûre que ce soit tout à fait une rec parce que je n'imagine pas que vous soyez passées à côté, disons que c'est plutôt à la fois un chant d'amour, des bouts de réflexion désordonnés et une espèce de tentative de discussion mais dont je n'ai pas vraiment formulé les problématiques (je vous promets que ce sera intéressant quand même, restez avec moi).



C'est l'histoire de moi dans une salle de cinéma, juste avant que ne soit projeté Age of Ultron, face à la bande annonce de Mad Max: Fury Road sur fond de "Dies Irae". Les yeux scintillants, je me tourne vers ma comparse et décrète: "Ça a l'air DÉBILE, je vais aller le voir EN COURANT, je vais CAMPER DEVANT LA SALLE en attendant que ça sorte!!!" Je suis suis fan inconditionnelle (et fine connaisseuse) de films d'action des années 80-90, et de grandes fresques de série B (Riddick je t'aime), ce film a l'air déjà taillé pour moi. Et après la séance, il s'est finalement avéré que le meilleur moment de Avengers: Age of Ultron pour moi a été la bande-annonce de Mad Max: Fury Road.

C'est l'histoire d'un hold-up cinématographique par un papy australien à moitié cinglé, qui a aussi réalisé un des meilleurs films d'animation au monde (ceux qui disent que Happy Feet n'a rien à voir thématiquement avec Mad Max n'ont pas vraiment vu Happy Feet. C'est peut-être un post pour une autre fois, mais Happy Feet est une comédie musicale avec des pingouins, mais aussi un film de science-fiction, une odyssée épique, et une fable écolo, avec des beaux mouvements de caméra maîtrisés qui trahissent le vrai bon réalisateur derrière -- et pas juste un enchaînement de plans caméra fixes dans lesquels des bestioles hystériques qui parlent ne font que s'agiter, à la Madagascar).

C'est l'histoire d'un chef-d'œuvre, mais aussi d'une impossibilité. C'est l'histoire d'un genre qui se meurt, de Hollywood qui fait constamment de la merde avec son pillage nostalgique et sa course à la licence, et d'un renouveau au singulier, qui ne changera sans doute pas la donne et qui nous rappelle surtout ce qu'on a perdu. Ou peut-être est-ce effectivement une pousse verte porteuse d'espoir dans un grand désert radioactif et stérile. Allez savoir.

C'est l'histoire d'un personnage féminin, héroïne d'un film d'action post-apo, chose tristement inimaginable de nos jours, planquée en scred sous une grosse licence avec un nom d'homme.

C'est l'histoire de quelques crétins misogynes sur Internet, qui se plaignent justement de la trop grande "féminisation", à leur goût, du film de dudebros qu'ils attendaient, alors que le film n'est même pas encore sorti. L'info est relayée et fait tache d'huile, et voilà que des femmes qui n'avaient aucune intention d'aller voir Mad Max s'y intéressent soudain. Puis c'est l'histoire d'interminables articles et débats sur internet occultant presque la qualité du film en lui-même, oui Mad Max est féministe, non Mad Max n'est pas féministe, Mad Max est un peu féministe mais pas trop, si, non, on s'en fout.

Enfin, c'est l'histoire de moi, encore, de retour dans une salle obscure, nerveuse comme jamais, m'attendant à tout moment à être déçue, et d'une déception qui n'arrive miraculeusement pas. Moi qui m'en prends plein la tête, avec de vraies belles explosions même que j'avais oublié comment ça faisait, moi qui avais failli annuler mon abonnement à la carte UGC tellement 2014 avait été vide en bons films et qui ne croyais plus du tout au cinéma. Moi, à nouveau cinéphile, les larmes aux yeux quand a défilé le générique de fin.

Je ne vais pas recommencer ici toute la discussion sur Mad Max et le féminisme, je trouve qu'il y a eu déjà suffisamment d'encre qui a coulé sur le sujet (ceci dit, si ça vous intéresse quand même ou que vous êtes passées à côté je vous mettrais quelques liens d'articles dessus que j'ai trouvés intéressants à la fin de ce post), j'aimerais plutôt qu'on discute, si vous le voulez bien, de pourquoi Mad Max est ressorti à ce point dans le paysage filmique cette année.

I don't think I've ever bought so many clothes/accessories/fashion stuff for myself in one year. This below is a sort of "mood board" because I need futile things that make me happy right now; here is my year in "fashion" (as far as the term applies to me... XD)

Nevermind The Empty Hearse, wasn't The Sign of Three AN AWESOME EPISODE OR WHAT?????????

OH MY GOD THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN ABOUT!!!

You guise, 00Q is a BABY FANDOM.
IT'S ADORABLE.
I was (more or less) there when it was born and now I'm watching it grow with motherly pride. The fans are calling themselves "00Qties" or are hashtagging everything with "#00Qpioneers4satan" (after an inside joke between friends on tumblr apparently) and they're all very cute and enthusiastic and there are more and more fics on AO3 everyday and NOTHING HURTS.

We've discussed it with [livejournal.com profile] berylia, and the reason we think 00Q is a ship that took off so quickly is that right now almost every major fandom is on hiatus. Most of us fangirls are waiting for season 3 of Sherlock, and Teen Wolf , the next Avengers movie and Iron Man 3, and I don't know where they're up to in Supernatural but I'm guessing it must also be on hiatus since, when I look at the people reblogging 00Q stuff on Tumblr, most of the usernames have to do with the aforementioned fandoms. So Skyfall had in fact the right timing to make us fall in love with the pairing, I don't think it was calculated, but well done, and I hope that they're going to take that into account for the next Bond movie, especially since there are rumours that Mr Cumberbatch might be the next Bond villain (personal wishlist: I hope Benedict plays a highly intelligent criminal mastermind that targets Q himself and then Bond has to save his darling from evil!Benny's clutches, IT WOULD BE SUPER AWESOME)

We went to see Skyfall again yesterday, then we watched my DVD of Brideshead Revisited (I LOVED it, it was actually a very good film even though it broke my heart a bit) and now I feel I'm becoming dangerously obsessed with Ben Whishaw, which is really unfair, because I have enough British actors ruining my life already. I learned on Tumblr that Whishaw also played Andrew Scott's gay lover onstage and that fucked me up a bit more and the image in my head alone makes me want to curl up on the floor and start crying.
So at 2 in the morning yesterday I watched interviews of him and completely melted because he's so fucking kawaii and looks so horribly shy and intimidated in front of cameras when he's not acting:



In real life apparently, he's dating Bright Star's music composer Mark Bradshaw AND THEY LOOK REALLY ADORABLE TOGETHER:



SO. FUCKING. KAWAII.

I've heard Skyfall opens in the US starting tomorrow, GO SEE IT, American people from my f-list, you need it in your life!

Billet Skyfall

So awesome. So awesome.

Today was the day of my birthday *party* (yes because I celebrate my birthday twice in a week that's just how I roll) and we went to see Skyfall in the morning.

Spoilers and other stuffs under the cut )
sevenswells: (What's up fuckers? (Ouran))
I've turned 27 today (er, yesterday, as it's two in the morning of the 31st of october right now) and this birthday was the coolest thing ever since the last one.

As always, so spoiled, SO SPOILED OMG )

Thank you guys for all your gifts and vows ([livejournal.com profile] falling_voices, [livejournal.com profile] coloredink, I heart you my lovelies!), you made this birthday very, very special to me, and I think I'm going to carry a smile as big as Nine's for at least a whole month!


sevenswells: (London Sherlock John)
You guise!

I'll be in London from the 19th of December to January the 3rd!

Obviously I'll be with my family on Christmas day, Boxing day and New Year's day, but if you're free on any other day and want to meet up with me, leave a comment here or send me a PM, and we'll see if we can hang out!

This will be my very first Londonian Christmas holidays, I'm very excited!! °0°//

TOO MANY FEELS
TOO MANY FEELS IN ONE EPISODE
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THESE FEELS ARE DOING

It's like those characters being in a law firm is just a pretext for EVERYONE PUTTING THEIR EMOTIONS ON TRIAL AND TESTIFYING ABOUT THEIR FEELINGS IN COURT

IT'S LIKE...

A GIANT METAPHORICAL LAWSUIT AGAINST CARING AND IT'S A LOST CAUSE BUT SOMEHOW CARING IS GOING TO WIN

PEARSON HARDMAN VS. CARING

I CAN'T
sevenswells: (Good Boy (Suits))
This show is so awesome, and it keeps getting better.

Spoilers under the cut )

You know what's horribly frustrating when you get into a new fandom like Suits after being in the Sherlock fandom for so long?

THERE'S JUST NOT ENOUGH QUALITY SLASH FIC.

Scratch that, there's just not enough fic full stop!

Sherlock fandom, you've ruined me for any other fandom, forever.

I still love you though.
sevenswells: (Good Boy (Suits))
Spoilers under the cut!

RIGHT IN THE FEELS )

God this is just like The Administration! Not that Mike is Warrick (hahaha, I don't think Warrick would be too pleased with the comparison), but Harvey and Donna have the same relationship as Toreth and Sarah, it's so amazing. (by the way, if you haven't read The Administration by Manna Francis yet, you're missing out. See my rec post about it)

Oekakiiiiiiii! I'm back from Singapore where I bought the cutest Dorothy Perkins dress, and today mah homegirl Steph will be performing a girlvention on hopeless me to buy shoes that go with it.


OHMAHGAD, shoes! I've never felt so girly in my life!

And as a result... )

Finally (FINALLY!!!!) saw Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows yesterday with [livejournal.com profile] berylia and [livejournal.com profile] miiaah.

I'm not sure this is coherent enough to call it a "review", but there you have it )

Okayyyyy, so, remember I was going to New Zealand in April, well I will probably make a detour via Singapore before I go back to Paris.
I will be there from the 20th to the 29th of April (more or less) to visit my cousin, but again, if there's anyone of my f-list in Singapore who'd like to meet me at some point, leave me a PM whenever and we'll set an appointment ;-)

Holy crap, exciting start of year so far! \o/
sevenswells: (Jayne's Thrilling Heroics (Firefly))
Guess who's going to New Zealand in April? :D Mwahahahaha

I promise I'm not going there to stalk Benedict, it's for my big brother's wedding, actually (and no, he's not trying to emulate Aragorn, he's really marrying a Kiwi woman).

So, f-list, if there's anyone living in NZ (the wedding is in Auckland but I guess we'll be moving around a bit to visit the country after that) who'd like to meet me for tea or a drink (or to eat a Kiwi burger OMG) at some point, let me know! Send me a PM or something. I love meeting new people and I've never bitten anyone who wasn't willing! :D

Or, if you live in NZ but won't be there in April, do you have any recommendations instead? What's fun to do there?

Wheeee! \o/

Reichenbach was so good it made me throw up in my mouth a little. And my face was ravaged by the end because I kept clawing at it (no. Really.).

Feelings. And spoilers. I has them. )

Appropriate gif to express my emotions, yada, yada:

Finished re-watching, here are my thoughts:

I'm not sure they're coherent though, be warned )
sevenswells: (Loki Mytho)
All this time I've been blabbering about Mytho here, I don't think I've ever told you what the actual story was about...
Thankfully, Rachel corrected that in style and drew this comic strip for a video games magazine she works for:



Other than that, about 2 500 more words written for that fucking threesome fic, an update is to follow anytime soon. The tragic thing is, I think I don't know how to write anymore. Words! Phrases! How do they work? I don't even remember how to write porn! /firstworldproblems
sevenswells: (Sherlock John kiss)
That's right bitches




Slashy tights under the cut ;D )

I have the best, most talented and outstanding friends anyone could ever dream of. Except now I have to learn how to walk with my legs drawn (pun not intended) together all the time.
