Pacific Rim yay!

I saw Pacific Rim finally last week, and I just loved it. Not that there aren't all kinds of problems with it (the skience, oy, and the skientists, oy with a side of vey), and things that bugged me, but overall, I really loved it. A lot of that has to do with the fact that Idris Elba and Max Martini. And Idris Elba and Max Martini frequently wandering around in the frame together; in fact, it seemed like Max was always at Idris's side for major portions of the character stuff and I couldn't be happier about that. What DID they do when they went in that room together while Chuck and Raleigh were fighting like dumbasses?

I see on Tumblr that there seems to be a slight interest in the two Hot Dads. I can really get behind this. I can't even tell you how happy I was when I found out that Max was playing one of the Jaeger pilots; I figured it'd be a teeny tiny role, but it turned out to be a decent sized role and he was so good, and so hot, and man, I would kill a person for those aweswome boots he wore.

However, if there's a Hot Dads fandom, I can't seem to find any fic for said hot dads. I would even happily take some fic for Raleigh and Mako if it treats Mako with respect. But it seems like everything I can find already at AO3 is crossovers, and I really generally do not enjoy crossovers. If there was a crossover with something I cared about, maybe, but I mean, I liked the characters in the actual movie, so...

I fucking hate trying to search on AO3. It's just such a fucking nightmare. There seems to be pages of fic already, but I can't winnow out the crossovers. They don't seem to be tagged as crossovers, anyway. It leaves me feeling frustrated and ragey. So, anyone got any good PR fic to rec, that isn't a crossover, and bonus points if it involves Stacker or Herc, or both?

I'm glad I didn't see it in 3D, because I think I would have had a big headache. It was so dark. And I did that thing afterward where I was all "Why didn't they do... And why did they do... And that didn't make sense when they..." and the friend I saw it with was all, "Stop doing that! Just enjoy it for being a big dumb fun movie!" I'm sad that it's done less well at the North American box office, but I do hope that the Asian releases will see it's profits soar. They could really have used a good sound engineer, though. I think I missed half the dialog behind all the noise. I always expect more on the tech side from del Toro.

I will be excited to get this one on DVD, though. Hopefully there will be some actual lines for the Crimson Typhoon crew, and the Russians in a director's cut. I loved them both even with what little we saw of them. It was interesting for me because as a twin, I could really grok what they were talking about in terms of connecting minds, and the way the pilots needed to be with each other. And what it feels like to lose the person you're connected to. That really affected me way more than I expected. I will be curious to see what they might have cut out of the movie's theatrical release.

I loved PR too, although I might be coming down on the side of All the Crossovers. (I will tag mine, swear.) I saw several Hot Dads prompts on the PR kinkmeme thread, so we can hope, yeah?

Looking forward to seeing you at VividCon!

Are kink memes about...well, kink, as in things like bdsm, or about kink as in "I have a competency kink"? Because that would be either very good for me or very bad. ;-) But there are only three things in AO3 about the hot dads, and only two of them are really actually about that. (So of course now I'm writing something... I get so tired of always having to write the things I'd rather read.)

The first, mostly, as you'd expect. Though other things do creep in.

I think you and I are in the same boat as always wanting the pairings no one else writes. :p
