Marvel Fic Recs

I promised someone Marvel fic recs. Okay, Bucky recs. :) But I can throw in something else as well, when we're at it already.
Main criterion I was supposed to focus on is postWS-but-efficient!Buck, that is a highly functioning one rather than a brain-dead, infantile, fandomized mess. Still, for obvious reasons it's never going to be a binary either/or matter, and at least for me, everything depends on the given author's literary skill and style. So, overall it's more a list of 'well written' than 'specifically themed'. I'm not promising all of these are equal in quality, not to mention they vary a lot in style, ideas and mood, but I can at least assure all of them are on a level higher than mediocre, with at least a few reaching 'brilliant'.

Ordered by wordcount (not like it's really the most important measure, but for the sake of neutral listing; also, this should prevent the beginning of the list from monopolizing the attention).

Odkryłam, że najzabawniejszy widok zimowy to kot idący po zmrożonym śniegu. Nie zbitym i nie luźnym, ale powierzchniowo zaskorupiałym, w którym zapada się co trzecia-czwarta łapka, tak że kot nigdy nie wie, która się utrzyma, a która nie. Rezultat jest wybitnie komediowy, a kot siłom i godnościom osobistom trzyma resztki fasonu najstalkerowszego stalkera na dzielni. Po krzakach chichoczą wróble.
(Tak, próbowałam to narysować. Nie rozmawiajmy o wynikach.)

...that the funniest winter sight is a cat walking on icy snow. Not caked and not fluffy, but crusted over, so that only as often as every third or fourth paw falls down and the cat never knows which one's going to hold up and which is not. The effect is hilarious and the cat doggedly (cattedly ^^) carries on what's left of the air of the sneakiest badass in da town, while sparrows are cackling in the hedge.
(Yes, I tried drawing that. Let's not talk about the results.)

Field observations from Tumblr

Sociologically speaking, Tumblr is a truly fascinating place. :)

Divided We Fall - MCU meta-picspam

Because I like this fanart a lot, I want to assure Clint he doesn’t fall alone. In fact, Marvel airspace is quite crowded. Should the matters keep this way, they’re all going to need an air vertical traffic control. Besides already needing a general air traffic control, with subdivisions for jets and capes, of course.

In no particular order:

Seen a movie: Arrival

For starters, I had to check the title again and again, and it kept slipping me. I still don’t know what makes Nowy początek (New Beginning) a better choice than Arrival according to Polish distributor, but okay…

I'm afraid spoilers are unavoidable, if I'm going to put here more than two pics and hundred words. Admittedly, they aren't very clear. Mostly because the whole entry isn't very clear. :]

I watched it for three reasons, which is a lot, come to think of it. First, I like 'contact' stories, though not without reservations, and though it tends to be a difficult love. Second, I recognized one actor. Yay me...



And third, considering the movie's theme, this one photo looked so incredibly stupid that I just had to see how they were going to justify that. XD

Photos: an obligatory autumn post

Because freezing my ass off at ungodly hour in a hazy and dripping forest is apparently my idea of fun… Okay, what’s on the pics was mostly around the noon, but still, first you need to get to this forest, right? So, ungodly hour stays valid. Also freezing, even at midday.

I aten't dead

After work I went to buy chips, among else.

The largest supermarket within 3 km - empty shelf. Well, Friday evening...

A little smaller grocery - a shelf full of stuff outdated by two months. (Are you friggin' kidding me??? It must be already crawling inside bags and plotting an escape from the store!)

Even smaller grocery closest to home - green onion only.

Why no one wants my money, come on, I made effort...

(Yes, this is a lame try to keep this journal sort-of-alive. A little too busy for anything bigger, sorry.)
