You'd think it would be hard to find a character OOC when all prior knowledge of that character comes from a scene in a movie lasting no more than two minutes, right? But you'd be wrong! Turns out it's surprisingly easy. I AM TOO PICKY SOMETIMES.

Tangentially related, any Thor/Marvel fans out there really should check out this amazing story: Gift of Asylum There's smut. Delicious, wonderful smut. Okay, the smut's just in the beginning--so far. Somewhere along the line a plot wormed its way into the whole thing and now the story is fantastic on all sorts of levels. It's a WIP, which I tend to avoid, but this thing is like smack. Clint Barton/Darcy Lewis. Sex. Snark. Laugh out loud humor. Nary a Pop-Tart in sight (adios, fanon) crap, found some Pop-Tarts on my re-read. sigh. What more do you need? This story, btw, is not the one that has me rolling my eyes at myself over my redonk OOC criticisms. Honestly, I love Gift of Asylum so much I couldn't criticize it if I tried. Even if it deserved it--which it definitely does not. I need to get to writing up an entry for [livejournal.com profile] het_reccers about this story--if someone hasn't beaten me to it, that is. I also have to see about getting a Hawkeye/Darcy icon. Hmm.

Anyhoozle, it's time to stop avoiding the overwhelming Monday-ness of today and get back to work. Take it easy, f-list! ❤

I've started reading Eric/Sookie fan fic (not because I ship them like burning or anything, mostly I'm just here for the pr0ns and I'd rather read Eric/Sookie than Bill/Sookie because Foghorn Leghorn sex IS NOT SEXY) but I keep running into the same problem. Namely, Eric using "lover" as a (questionable) term of endearment or as some sort of show of how AMAZINGLY sexual a creature Eric is. Which, uh, it's totally not. I'm not the only one who thinks this, right? Like, now all I can see in my head is a True Blood version of SNL's "Two Wild and Crazy Guys" (starring Eric & Bill... Take a moment to picture that in your head. - - - - - - - - - - - You're welcome.) trying to pick up the ladies with lame lines that end in "lover." And that ruins my porn reading. (Not really.)

Is this a character flaw trait from the books, does anyone know? If yes, consider the following a brief open letter.

Dear Charlaine Harris:

Having Eric call Sookie "lover" is not nearly as seductive as I think you think it is. Please make him stop saying it. It genuinely calls into question the assertion that Eric is supposed to be sex on legs. Because when he says that, he's totally not. I'm just sayin'.


Everyone (by which I mean
me, so you know, not really worth much as opinions go. But still. Think about it. Please?)

Also: hello, f-list! I'll try not to suck so much about participating here on the elljays.
