So a bunch of people who've signed up for [community profile] ssrconfidential wanted to do a canon refresher, and I agreed to host it. Since we're trying to get eighteen episodes watched before the main writing period really gets going, it's going to be pretty fast (think of it like those dance marathons from the 1930s). However, don't worry if this schedule doesn't fit your schedule. I'm just going to put the posts up on the below days; if you want to watch them then, yay, if you want to watch six on Saturdays and none during the week, also yay, just comment as something familiar passes you by. Don't worry about adding me, just track the Fest: Agent Carter Rewatch tag for e-mail alerts. I have anon posting turned on for those without DWs.

I'll be putting up the posts a little before 8pm (initially PST, then PDT after time change) on the following dates. I'm not sure if anyone is interest in irc chats to go with, but I can set up a channel if anyone is. Other suggestions welcome, in this regard. Commenting on the posts seems easiest to me as then no one has to be too worried about time zones. You can live blog reactions by replying to yourself in a chain, etc.

I am counting the main comment section as a SPOILER ZONE for the whole series and the MCU generally. However, I will make the first thread on each post spoiler free, and link to it from the main post for spoiler adverse first-time watchers. That thread will only have spoilers for that episode and the ones proceeding it, not for the rest of the series.

I'm not really going to have any rules, other than to please remember that thine favourite is not always mine favourite and the other way around. Expressing dislike of a character/plot/hat is fine, but don't be a dick about it.

Schedule:
3 March: 1x1 - "Now is Not the End"
5 March: 1x2 - "Bridge and Tunnel"
7 March: 1x3 - "Time and Tide"
9 March: 1x4 - "The Blitzkrieg Button"
11 March: 1x5 - "The Iron Ceiling"
13 March: 1x6 - "A Sin to Err"
15 March: 1x7 - "Snafu"
17 March: 1x8 - "Valediction"
19 March: 2x1 - "The Lady in the Lake"
21 March: 2x2 - "A View in the Dark"
23 March: 2x3 - "Better Angels"
25 March: 2x4 - "Smoke & Mirrors"
27 March: 2x5 - "The Atomic Job"
29 March: 2x6 - "Life of the Party"
31 March: 2x7 - "Monsters"
2 April: 2x8 - "The Edge of Mystery"
4 April: 2x9 - "A Little Song and Dance"
6 April: 2x10 - "Hollywood Ending"

I'm open for discussion on rewatching various other things Peggy appears in, such as Cap movies, Ant-Man and the mini movie thingy, presumably after the main rewatch. Comments? Questions? Opinions? Discuss them here.
muccamukk: Wanda of Many Colours (Marvel: Scarlet Witch)
[personal profile] resonant asked: What do you remember about the first comic you ever read?

The first serialised comics were probably in the papers, and we only got the papers our groceries were wraped in, and we only get groceries once a month, so following say Prince Valiant was definitely a lost cause.

At some point my brother got a subscription to Nintendo Magazine, which had a monthly instalment of what I can only imagine was a deeply middling comic about either Starfox or Super Mario Brothers, depending on the month. I remember reading these out loud to my mother, who displayed an unusual amount of patience with this project, probably because I wasn't reading much yet, so she was happy with whatever I chose. The actual content... they rescued Princess Peach? Yoshi only said "Yoshi" and was my favourite. The Starfox one had a scene where Falco had to knock out Starfox to keep him from going on a mission (or the other way around?) that appealed to my burgeoning h/c fascination. Otherwise, I got nothing.

The first superhero comic I read was an Essential X-Men I got from the library after seeing the first X-Man movie and falling madly in love with Rogue. It was probably one of the '70s Claremont runs, and I remember mostly being confused by all the characters, but liking the team dynamic. There was an issue where Kurt went to hell, which was suitably angsty, and made me happy to see him in X2. There was also the famous scene where Magneto is about to kill... everyone? Something, but he sees that he's injured Kitty Pride and repents. I liked the art, which being Essential was all black and white and clean bronze-age lines. Storm and Professor X looked enough like their movie versions to satisfy me. The second or third fic I wrote was a Rogue&Wolverine h/c tag to X2, but I was a still movies only fan.

I didn't go back to comics until someone lent me the collected Frank Miller Batman books in about 2005. I dipped my toe into that fandom, then backed slowly away. (I think War Games was the event that summer, and I was impressed by the feminist rage surrounding it, but nothing made me want to get into comics.) Marvel eventually sucked me in for good with Captain Britain and MI:13.

So, Tony has to reconnect with his partners, Steve and Natasha, after all these years, while Steve has to come to terms with how everything has changed, starting from his son, who is now a teenager instead of a toddler.
Notes: This is the follow up the Next Avengers that I've wanted ever since I first saw it. I'm so happy right now. You can probably read it even if you haven't seen the cartoon, as the story includes the backstory as well.

Dream On

Jul. 22nd, 2016 08:29 am
muccamukk: An eye painted purple and green. Text: Hulk. (Avengers: Lady Hulk)
I had a dream that I was watching some new Avengers movie, or possibly Thor 3? Anyway, I realised that my Cousin Jack was playing a SHIELD agent in it, and his plot was a romance with Bruce Banner. The Hulk picked him flowers. It was very cute. So I called his mom to tease her that Mark R was too old for Jack, and she sounded caught between amused and put out by the fandom kurfuffle. Though in RL, my cousin is in his mid 30s, and wouldn't be too young, and is also a drill rig operator who works in the mines in the North. So there is that.

Still not sure if I'll make it to town in late August, but I'd like to see some of the new movies that everyone's talking about. And go to the wedding. Yay! Weddings! It sounds like my supervisor is trying to make it happen, which is good.

Oh, apparently Google is doing a street view of the National Park. The camera guy and some parks people will be staying here 29 July. Huh. Probably help me catch Pokemon if we ever get that here.

FemmeRemix is drafted, and will be finished in good time. For fucking once, I'm not chasing the deadline bus. Now torn between doing a fill for Cap/IM TRB weekly picture prompt which is a bit of a troll prompt this week (I am very bad at resisting dares), or for doing a Wish Fulfilment Fest fic. (Regular listeners to this channel are now laughing at me for not working on any WIP.) The first one has a deadline, so maybe that?
