Back in the land of mold, moss, and algae

yuletide lights
When I arrived in Washington DC, it was torrentially raining, and when I arrived home in Seattle, it was torrentially raining. We hates it. Yesterday it rained here so hard I actually couldn't hear the TV at one point.

The rest of my trip was fun, if tiring. On Sunday, we took the train back to DC and then wandered over to Georgetown to get some dinner before calling it an earlier night than normal. Monday morning, [personal profile] kerithwyn drove over from Baltimore to spend the day with me, and we walked all the way down to the Spy Museum, past the White House and the lunatics in front. the Spy Museum was fun, and I wished I hadn't been quite as tired as I was by then, because I probably could have spent at least another hour there if I'd been feeling a bit stronger. On the way we stumbled on a grilled cheese bar, which was rather spectacular, and then afterward we went back to my hotel, which had a tea cellar -- yes, curated teas much like a good wine cellar. That was fun.

Then we met up with [personal profile] dorinda and my friend for dinner at Founding Farmers, which was good but I confess I liked the other places I ate at in DC more. But we had a lot of fun, good conversation and drinks and just very pleasant all the way around, and after 'rith took off for home, dorinda hung around and we talked for a couple hours, which made a super pleasant end to my trip. I met up Tuesday with Keith for a quick tea break before walking back to my hotel, where I waited a few hours to go to the airport. It was a gorgeous day out despite them saying it was going to be rainy, but by the time I was almost at the airport, I saw the rain coming in. Looking at the Washington Monument out the window made me sad, because I have this feeling I might never get back there again. I mean, I don't know that for sure, but if Keith moves back here, it's probably more likely that I wouldn't. Although I know the city pretty well, so I suppose there's nothing to stop me, especially if I get obsessed with another movie fandom where they film something in the city. ;-)

I now have too much work to do and I want to write, too, because all the ideas I had rattling around in my head for Winter Soldier stories got even more compelling by rattling around in both the cities Steve is attached to. I don't know how I'm going to carve out this time, but I feel like I have to -- and then there's also Festivids and Yuletide coming up, so I'm stressing, that's for sure.

Speaking of Yuletide, I have a question I can't seem to find an answer to. Last year, I noticed quite a few stories where the YT-eligible fandom was crossed over with a huge fandom that wasn't eligible. I remember being surprised, but I wonder if that's actually legal or not. It may be for all I know. I can't seem to find it being addressed, but I'd love to know -- can you in fact cross over characters in an eligible fandom with characters from an ineligible one?

Wish you were here

Having a good tine so far on my trip. Wednesday was kind of a wash -- got in late afternoon at National and I made the foolish mistake of checking my bag, and everything was a mess there from torrential rain and thunderstorms, so by the tine I got to my hotel, it was evening and time for dinner. My friend took me to a place by my hotel called Lincoln, which was outstanding and I loved the floor made entirely of pennies (always wish I could do that in a room at home). I was awake all night, unfortunately, and should have just given up and written but I kept thinking I could sleep, since I was so frigging tired.

First thing I did in the morning was head out to Dupont Circle so I could find Steve's apartment from Winter Soldier. Which I did -- I'd done the sleuthing beforehand and located the address, and it took me a bit of getting lost but I found it and posted pics of it to my Tumblr (I'm on my iPad or I'd link, but the username is teatotally). It was so fun to see it, and where he parked his bike. I'm such a fucking nerd. But what pissed me off were a couple of snotty people saying "oh yeah, I knew that" but fuck them -- why the hell did no one who knew where it was never post it? Why did it take me forever to sleuth it out? Geez, back in the day, we used to regularly tell people where things were filmed so other fans could make pilgrimages. Kids these days, I don't know. I also was not expecting all the reblogs and likes -- I thought maybe a couple friends might find it amusing, but apparently a hell of a lot of people wanted to know where Steve's apartment was.

After that, I went off to the Mall to find the tree where Sam and Steve meet cute. I knew it was on 3rd St., but I wanted to see if I could suss out the exact spots where they stood. That was fun. I stopped in after that to the National Gallery but there wasn't much new I hadn't seen before. Then my friend dragged me on this hot, sweaty chase for dinner all over town after taking me to a sherry and ham place called Mockingbird Hill. Yes, you read that right -- they specialize in sherry and ham. My friend has become chummy with the owners and bartender, and it was fun, but it was so fucking hot, and we got stuck next to this horrible young woman who was meeting a guy on a blind date or something -- they didn't know each other, at least. As soon as Keith and I got out, we both were like, "I wanted to tell him to RUN" and save himself. I hate slagging off other women like that, but she was just poisonous and definitely ruined what should have been a nice time.

Anyways, we finally got dinner at a nice place called Proof, another hangout of his, and then in the morning we headed off to NY on the Acela train. Not cheap, but fast. The hotel gave me an upgrade to a lovely king suite, and I actually finally got more than an hour of sleep. We went off to the High Line today and both ended up exhausted, but he's kind of a baby and I have to wait to see now if he'll be less crabbypants after a nap so we can go get dinner proper later tonight. Last night it sounds like he had fun on his own while I went off to [personal profile] cesperanza's house, including, I guess, striking up conversations with actors from Book of Mormon and hanging out and buying them drinks. But I was having Winter Soldier FEELZ with Ces and others, so I think I win.

I wish I had one more day here so I could meet up with others, but we have to head back at some point. I have one more full day in DC and then most of early Tuesday before an evening flight home. This is definitely my Winter Soldier vacation -- aside from talking about it last night with other fans, doing the location scouting, I got in the cab Thursday night and it was playing on the tv screen in the cab, and I keep seeing these Starz promo ads that feature it prominently. It follows me around!

New fic: Color Theory

I have a bunch of other stories I want to work on, but instead I got sucked in to writing the 2014 version of Every Picture Tells a Story, because I'm just that much of a whore for complimentary "please write that" requests.

The desire was fierce inside him; sometimes Steve caught Bucky staring at him, regarding a little too closely that sumptuous mouth or the hollow of this throat, wishing he could tear Steve to pieces with his lips and hands and teeth and lavish him with kisses.

Up from the ground

work feh infinitemonkeys
I didn't think I could make it to the end of this meme, with depression eating away at me. But yay, here I am.

1. There's a super sweet guy in my writer's group who's getting ready to self-publish a fantasy novel. He's been running cover ideas past the group and just showed us some new cover art, basically variations on the same concept. His protagonist on one cover has short dark hair, and on another long scraggly dark hair that makes it impossible to see his face. I commented that if they make his face more visible, I liked the long-hair version best because he has a Bucky Barnes Winter Soldier thing going on and that's never bad. He wrote back, "Bucky Barnes was really hot. Even I could see that." So he's now very happy about keeping long-hair version.

2. The blue I put in my hair has been hanging on for months and wasn't going away, and I kind of wanted to give my hair a little rest for a bit before I go back to the bold colors. I saw a new guy the other day and I really thought there was no way they could give me an all-over color with these patches hanging around, but hours later and a hell of a lot of money, the blue was gone and I had a really lovely coppery color that's not unlike my old real red before my hair started turning brown. Not something I want to do again (my back and my pocketbook are both saying OW a lot this week), but I'm glad it worked in time for my trip to the east coast next week.

3. I found a little portable foldable keyboard to use with my iPad so I don't have to bring my laptop on the trip in order to write. I don't know what app to get to write with, though. The keyboard is okay, it's not perfect but it'll do better than trying to type in-screen, plus it's purple, so.

3.1 The horrible book is off to the publisher, so I feel like I can breathe. Now I'm copyediting a fantasy romance from a writer who's really fantastic with the mechanics and loves suggestions, so there's not nearly as much work involved. I keep proofreading behind these incompetent copyeditors and it's so dismaying. This recent awful book, the CE didn't know the difference between pored/poured, and didn't know the phrase is en route. I despair.

3.2 I finished a second draft of a kind of (sequel? continuation? series? inspired by/remix? I have absolutely no idea how to post this thing) 2014 update to Every Picture Tells a Story. It's awful, and nearly twice as long, and did I mention awful (none of what I think some folks found sweet or charming about the original is in this), but I hope it will be finished soon. I have so many ideas and no clue what to tackle next, though.

Save my life and I'll save yours

Haven't been able to do the positivity meme day 4 because I just don't have anything positive. I am basically consumed with feeling worthless and pointless and wondering why I spend so much time creating fan works. And then on top of that, I'm working on this awful misogynistic thriller book, of course written by a man, where we're supposed to feel sorry for the serial killer because of the abuse he suffered that created his pathology. That kind of thing really doesn't help your depression.

1. I am going to a hockey game tonight with [personal profile] raveninthewind so that's at least one thing.

2. Got all my hotels lined up for DC and NYC.

3. It looks like I'll be able to meet up with [personal profile] dorinda and [personal profile] kerithwyn while I'm in DC, so yay.

DC and NYC here I come

al cheers
I'm going to be in Washington DC and NYC in a few weeks -- I'll be in DC on the 15th, though I get in kinda late in the afternoon, and then my BFF and I are heading up to NY on the 17th for a couple days up there, returning to Washington on Sunday the 19th. I leave for home late in the day on Tuesday the 21st.

So with that schedule in mind, I wondered if there's anyone who feels like meeting up. I'll have my friend with me in NY, but he's what I call fannish adjacent -- he's a fanboy without really being in fandom, and he's well versed in all my current obsessions, so he's safe for fannish meetups. I haven't made a hotel reservation yet but the place I'm looking at is near Times Square. I'll probably be in a couple different places in the city in Washington.

I don't have a lot of plans other than to hang out with my friend and see some places I haven't been to before. I want to see the High Line when we're in NY, but that's my main focus besides shopping because I always love shopping. So that leaves me with meetup time, for once!

And I don't have much for the positivity meme day 3, but I'll use this, I guess.

1. Got my plane tickets for the trip.

2. Am going on a trip, which, since my plans with the BFF for Hawaii in October fell apart due to his life issues, is at least something to look forward to.

3. Uh, made nominations for both Yuletide and Festivids that are adjacent to my current obsession with all things Winter Soldier.

Positivity day 2

1. Went up to [personal profile] killabeez and Mr. Killa's new house last night for dinner and it is really beautful and dinner was lovely and of course the company was awesome. The view from their living room is spectacular, overlooking the area where the ferries leave from Mukilteo -- seeing the ferries with their lights on, crossing the water at night, is always one of the things I love about living in Puget Sound.

2. This fucking spectacular Winter Soldier paper art project by beelikej for [personal profile] talitha78 is utterly amazing and you should go read this post to see how she did it. I am green with envy!

3. Um. Oh! A couple people rec'd stories I've written this week, which means the world to me. I've been feeling pretty crappy about writing lately and that was definitely inspirational.

[personal profile] mlyn tagged me for the five-day positivity meme a while ago, but seeing as how it takes me hours to get out of bed in the morning because I keep hoping I won't ever wake up again, I didn't really have anything to put in it, and I doubt I'll be able to make it work for five days. Also, I won't tag anyone.

But! I did have a couple positive things happen yesterday so I will try it out.

1. I got podficced! Since hardly anyone even reads my stuff, I never in a million years imagined someone would ever podfic a story I'd written, but my Yuletide story from 2010, Lesser Angels, was read by chemm80, and it has nifty cover art and a song and it's so, so cool to hear someone read your story. Somehow this story is the gift that keeps on giving -- it's probably the only time strangers have approached me to talk about a story I wrote, at a con.

2. I saw that my right front tire was really low when I came out of the market yesterday, and managed to get home to put the groceries away, even on the really badly paved roads in my area, and in my driveway I saw the nail in the tire. There was just enough inflation to get to the Les Schwab tire place about a mile away, and they were able to fix the tire, and they didn't charge me. I guess since I was a new customer, they gave it to me gratis -- which is a pretty good strategy, because you can bet I will be back when I need new tires. I'd heard their service was legendary, and it is definitely true.

3. The second-run theatre in Kent was still showing Captain America: The Winter Soldier this week, so I got to see it one last time with [personal profile] minim_calibre on Tuesday. That was my 21st time in the theatre.

Bucky worked the bag a while longer before collapsing on the floor, chest heaving, lips glistening as he licked them. This was provocation, Steve was certain. If he couldn’t get Steve to admit to his perversion, then Bucky would find a way to tease it out of him.

The Winter Soldier doesn't do slogans

bucky winter soldier
I wrote this little piece of meta on Tumblr (my username is teatotally) about something I noticed in the art book of Cap 2, and thought I'd post it here too, I guess because I'm still kind of astonished that this line would have been in the script.


I finally read The Art of Captain America: The Winter Soldier from cover to cover, including reading all the storyboard and pre-viz sequences. I was completely amazed when I saw the storyboards for the fight between the Winter Soldier and Cap on the helicarrier: the shot where Bucky goes after Steve features a caption of him shouting “HAIL HYDRA!” with a feral look on his face as he moves in for the kill.

This suggests that the line was in some early version of the script, and I am so glad that somewhere along the way someone had the good sense to jettison it, because it was so tonally completely wrong and would have drastically changed the character as they developed him in the movie. It would have been jarring and bizarre to have him spout some kind of ideological slogan (one which, for me, was one of the least successful aspects of the movie), particularly after we’ve seen him trying to piece together his memories in the face of Pierce’s empty bullshit rhetoric, which he barely listens to. The only reason he gets refocused on completing his assignment is because they forcibly remove his experiences and memories, not because Pierce sways him with the power of Hydra’s super-sekrit awesome plan for world domination.

The MCU version of Bucky is, to my eyes, far more broken and dehumanized than the comics version (not that Bucky’s not broken and dehumanized in the books, because he is, deeply so), but even this version of him is not without his resources and capabilities. We see him in charge of the team of mercenaries when they attack Steve, Natasha, and Sam on the bridge and he obviously had some hand in planning that attack; we see him waiting at the end of the attack on Nick Fury, a failsafe in case the other squad didn’t accomplish their task; we see him go to Pierce’s on his own; we see him at the end, figuring out what’s happening at SHIELD and what he has to do to stop it; and then we see him in the tag at the end credits, having learned of the Captain America exhibit and going to find out about himself. It’s really tempting to infantalize him, especially after the horrific bank vault mind-wipe scene, but MCU Winter Soldier is still a pretty capable and resourceful weapon in most situations.

But he doesn’t come by this of his own free will, and he doesn’t do it because he buys into the ideology — he does it because he’s been tortured, mind-wiped, completely broken of his humanity and stripped of his own personal agency. There’s no Stockholm Syndrome absorption of his captors’ beliefs; he does what he’s told, but he’s not doing it because he follows the party line, even if he was only following it to stay alive.

It doesn’t matter if Hydra’s still just a Nazi cult or you’re viewing it through the prism of modern-day government that’s just a step away from the Big Brother-type new world order, there’s still a political (and control) agenda that the people saying Hail Hydra have bought into at some point. They clearly believe in the message. But the Winter Soldier doesn’t buy into that, he can’t — he’s a loaded gun that gets pointed in a direction and fired. He’s programmed, not motivated.

In the comics, Bucky gets out of cryofreeze for much longer times and even has something resembling a life at one point, training Red Room recruits. He’s still a weapon, though, he’s still there to do a job and complete a mission until Steve forces his memories back (not, like in the movie, through the Power of Love but with the cosmic cube’s mojo), he’s still there to represent someone’s agenda, and he seems aware of it — he knows who he works for, what he’s doing. He questions orders, goes off-mission (which doesn’t work out too well for him), and interacts with his superiors to some degree. MCU Bucky doesn’t appear to have any of that, at least from what we’ve learned so far, until Steve jars it loose and he makes the decision to save Steve. MCU Bucky is even less likely to understand or give the tiniest crap about the rhetoric and ideology of an organization like Hydra than the comics Winter Soldier is.

To buy into a belief system, you have to make a choice, and we’ve seen that Bucky in the MCU doesn’t have even the tiniest particle of free will anymore. If that horrifying chair scene does nothing else, it shows us how completely they’ve destroyed him and taken away any real knowledge of what he’s doing in the grand scheme of things. Pierce pumps up his bullshit with compliments, trying to give Bucky the carrot to get him back on mission, until he realizes that won’t work and he resorts to the stick instead. Because really, why would that crap work on him? He’s a tool, a weapon, and that’s all they’ve allowed him to be.

He’s almost completely undone by his memories of Steve, and they have to basically reboot him in order to get him to perform his mission. All this ideology, all these statements and beliefs, are meaningless to him, so having him shout “Hail Hydra!” before attacking Steve would have made him look like he had absorbed what Hydra stood for, made him more of an active participant in their plans, not a broken, dehumanized, tragic victim. He doesn’t even have enough agency to buy into Hydra’s mission or his part in it the way someone might with Stockholm Syndrome. It would have completely altered that aspect of his character to me, made him seem far less tragic than he is by the time he makes that decision to save Steve, and in doing so save himself.

I’m sure someone could make a good case why having him shout Hail Hydra would have been cool or might have made his mind-wipe even more tragic (if so, go to town!), but myself, I just can’t see it. I always find it fascinating to see what gets changed in the movie-making process as they go along, and it seems to me that someone showed very good sense in eliminating that line, keeping Bucky’s tragic storyline more consistent with what we know of how horribly destroyed he is as a person. He’s a blank slate, a weapon, a victim, not a slogan or a belief system — or even a villain with a plan.

Man, you think you're invisible already, and then you find out that your fic doesn't even show up on an automated AO3 Tumblr fic feed for your pairing. With the legit tags and everything. Like, ever. I didn't believe I could be any more invisible than I already was, but I was wrong!

Remastering vids is always hard, which is why I hate to do it. You'd think that a movie vid would be easier to remaster, but it's turning out to be a struggle, especially with timing, since the cam copy I was working from had some timing differences, not to mention the framing issues -- there's one clip where before, Maria Hill wasn't even visible in the clip, but now she is.
