I was tagged by sirona_gs!
In a text post, list ten FICS that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” works, or even all the same pairing or fandom, just the fics that have touched you or that stuck with you somehow. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!
(As an aside, I have to say that this was almost impossible. In the time it took me to winnow down the monstrous and continuous list of recommendations I’ve been tracking since 2006, I easily could have written 70 pages of Reconstruction, including an NC-17 section that would get me either feted or booed at Cannes. That is what I am saying. The above meme text is impossible to adhere to because Reasons.)
These are in order of “how long did it take me to find a viable link.”
Anonymous said: Hello! It's quite obvious you watch kdramas but have you seen any Korean movie? If you haven't, you should definitely check out The King and the Clown. It's so good, the plot, the acting, the ost, just...everything about this movie is perfect. The fact that this movie brought Lee Jun Ki to instant fame is also a bonus!
I have! I watched The King and Clown for the first (and only to date) time in college, and I think I cried so much I left water stains on my kitchen table. My roommate came home and was like, “What the fuck is wrong with you,” and I couldn’t tell her because I was crying so hard.
Obviously some of you kdrama-ers will read this as a recommendation and go searching immediately for this film.
Anonymous said: Shouldn't Steve be sterile too, really? Otherwise, what's the reason for why there's not an army of US government created Captain America kids running around? You'd think that'd be the next logical step when they realized they couldn't recreate the serum...
Well, since the serum is an enhancement, it’s unlikely to be passed through genetics (the doctors probably tested this, somehow, haha). Steve’s kids are more likely to inherit his asthma and weak stature.
OH MY GOD THO
A SINISTER GOVT EXPERIMENT TO CREATE AN ARMY OF TINY CAPTAIN AMERICAS
STEVE FINDS OUT ABOUT IT AT SOME POINT
AND IT’S BASICALLY ELEVEN TOW-HEADED, ASTHMATIC, ALLERGIC, IMMUNO-COMPROMISED LITTLE BEANPOLES WITH BAD ATTITUDES
SOCKED AWAY SOMEWHERE
LIKE IN A WAREHOUSE OR WHATEVER
WITH A COUPLE OF OVERWHELMED INTERNS BABYSITTING THEM
BECAUSE THE RESEARCHERS HAD ALL THEIR FUNDING TAKEN AWAY WHEN CAPTAIN AMERICA’S SECRET UBERMENCH CLONES TURNED OUT TO BE A BUNCH OF WEAKLINGS
AND NOBODY KNOWS WHAT TO DO WITH THIS GAGGLE OF KIDS (WHO ARE SHRILL AND UNMANAGEABLE AND WHEEZE A LOT)
EXCEPT MAKE SURE THEY GET ADEQUATE MEDICAL CARE AND REGULAR MEALS
AND REGRET THEIR IN RETROSPECT VERY OBVIOUS ERRORS
AND HOPE STEVE DOESN’T FIND OUT
WHICH OF COURSE HE DOES
BACK AT THE TOWER
EVERYONE’S INHALERS KEEP GETTING MIXED UP
THERE ARE COLORED PENCILS EVERYWHERE
A FISTFIGHT ABOUT THE NATURE OF JUSTICE ENSUES BETWEEN THE 9 YEAR OLD ONE AND ONE OF THE 11 YEAR OLDS
This. Is. My. Fetish.
