Star Wars: The Force Awakens, “try growing on for size” by imochan, Kylo/Hux, AU

I’ve never been into high school AUs, but for some reason the Kylo/Hux ones give me life. And this one is particularly gorgeously written, with spot-on characterization and lovely moments.

Film

Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

I thought I was prepared for how awful this movie was, but I wasn’t. There are baffling choices to laugh and giggle at, but it’s mostly an endless, grey, wet, nihilistic slog that will destroy your faith in humanity.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)

Which is why I had to go home and watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens just to regain my will to live.

Zootopia (2016)

As adorable and socially conscious as advertised!

Technical problems last week.

Fanfiction

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Finn/Poe, “Just Call Us Superstars” by partypaprika

Finn and Poe work it out after Finn wakes up. Amazing how quickly tropes develop these days.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Finn/Poe, “better stand up straight” by middlecyclone

Finn and Poe work it out after Finn wakes up, now with Poe telling Finn that he doesn’t want weird sexy thanks if he feels obligated.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Finn/Poe, “(Mis)use the Force” by Ptolemia

Rey uses the Force to help Finn out with his Poe problem. Very cute and cracky, with bonus Luke and Leia.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Finn/Poe, “Coupling” by Mamalazzer

Everyone thinks Finn and Poe are dating; Finn has a hilarious crisis over this.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Finn/Poe, “Awakenings” by beetle

Poe waits for Finn to wake up.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Finn/Poe, “just like it should” by fabrega

Poe’s fellow pilots encourage him to DO SOMETHING about his feelings for Finn. This might be my favorite Jessika Pava so far.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Finn/Poe, “crooked on my chrome” by dansunedisco

BB-8 plays matchmaker and tries to be real smooth about it.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Finn/Poe, “No other exile” by queerly_it_is

This is much more about Phasma getting captured and dealing with the fallout of that, but there is a side slice of Finn/Poe.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Finn/Poe, “the coat thief” by Gretahs

Details BB-8’s journey over the course of the film, with a Finn/Poe coda. Adorable.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Finn/Poe, “The Lightness of Feeling” by aesdiac

Rey and BB-8 play matchmaker. Unfortunately, Finn is pretty thick when it comes to this stuff.

Film

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)

(banshee shriek into the night) It was so good! IT WAS SO GOOD!

Television

Saturday Night Live, “Tina Fey and Amy Poehler/Bruce Springsteen”

Not one of the best Christmas episodes and a little lackluster for two HUGE alums coming back. Still, “Meet Your Second Wife” is dark and hilarious, and seeing Kate McKinnon’s and Amy Poehler’s Clinton impressions together is fun.

Fanfiction

Star Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi/Qui-Gon Jinn, “Hour that is mine” by randomalia (spilinski)

Looks like my sci-fi ships are all about the tragedy of surviving your beloved and living on a desert planet. Obi-Wan contemplates what he’s lost in exile, and I cry a thousand buckets.

Star Wars, “Hope’s Worth is Written with a Golden Quill” by akathecentimere

A fic about Obi-Wan rediscovering his purpose during his first year on Tatooine. Delicious feels.

Star Wars, “Reunion” by Nix (CrimsonQuills)

Force ghost kisses and Luke’s blessing. The only kind of fluff I will allow for this ship.

Fanvid

Agent Carter, “1941” by rhoboat

Snappy, fun, and features a honk sound for Peggy honking Steve’s pec. FLAWLESS.

Star Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi/Qui-Gon Jinn, “My Immortal” by sian1359

Tripping over this while rifling through the prequels fandom’s corpse’s pockets was monumental, to say the least. Oh, does this take me back.

Film

Carol (2015)

Pitch perfect and lush, but Blanchett’s choices as Carol reminded me too much of my mom to be comfortable.

Television

Star Trek: The Next Generation, “Night Terrors”

A pretty meh episode to ease back into the project, although Beverly in the morgue is a truly effective frightfest.

Fanfiction

(Hannibal, Hannibal/Will) “every color at hand” by Randstad

Is this a perfect fic? It might be a perfect fic. Perfectly echoes season one mindfuckery. I don’t want to say anything more.

(Hannibal, gen) “I am a Good Dog” by hershpa

Tragic fic from Winston’s perspective with nothing bad happening to the dogs. Except the people sausage.

Fanvid

(Hannibal, gen) “aruba” by CaptainBanshee

Hee hee.

(Hannibal, Hannibal/Will) “Silver Linings Playbook - Hannibal Parody Trailer

Brilliantly done and edited; I really like how it just borrows beats from the original trailer, because there’s plenty of suitable material in the show.

Film

Ella Enchanted (2004)

“Is that… a purposefully cultivated neckbeard?” Also: keep your eyes peeled for Hugh Dancy’s facial hair, which cannot be tamed through conventional means.

Television

Hannibal, “And The Woman Clothed With the Sun…”

OH, GOD, THIS SHOW. Molly and Will’s phone call (complete with +2 dogs). Dolarhyde’s new amazing friend (PLEASE LET NOTHING BAD HAPPEN TO HER and I also kind of want them to run off together even though he’s a murder rapist). WILL AND HANNIBAL TALKING. AGHRHGH.

Saturday Night Live, “Mary Kay Place/Willie Nelson”

Mary Kay Place brings a very streamlined and welcome perspective to this episode. I did enjoy the Ladies’ Group sketch, where four women compete to see who can be the most self-abnegating in a relationship. It reads like an Amy Schumer sketch that actually hits home and also features Newman and Radner play-acting a couple. Laraine Newman is a goddamn national treasure.
