Captain America: The Winter Soldier, “untitled” by stele3
An itty bitty cute ficlet that will, nonetheless, make you tear up. I just need all the fic of the Winter Soldier attempting to reconnect with his past life.
Elementary, “The Man With the Twisted Lip”
Joan and Sherlock struggle over boundaries, which I always appreciate, especially Joan’s laser-focused takedown of Sherlock’s heartfelt apology. And I am pretty okay with Joan and Mycroft getting together—they like each other in a nonromantic context as well, and they discuss boundaries! I assume this is part of Mycroft’s larger play, however, so boo.
I am not one hundred percent on Joan getting kidnapped. I think they’ll pull it off well—hell, Liu directs the next episode!—but it could go wrong. The teaser seemed to focus on Sherlock attempting to function with Joan, which I kind of like. But I hope that Joan rescues herself.
Star Trek: The Next Generation, “Transfigurations”
Fair enough story, but, of course, I particularly adored Worf’s love advice.
Star Trek: The Next Generation, “The Best of Both Worlds Part I”
Man, the summer of 1990 must have been insane, waiting for this to resolve. That ending? Riker finally showing his true command potential in this awful, awful situation? Harrowing. I also really enjoyed Riker trying to get to the bottom of his own insecurities about taking the captaincy because Shelby—who is girl original flavor Riker—is there to remind him of where he’s come from.
