And today, on things what are good:

1. Lust, Caution. It had been recommended to me with flying colors, and I knew what the story was about and how it ended, but still. Punch. To. The. Gut. Beautifully done and acted and it features Wang Lee Hom's face. You should all go watch it. 

As long as you're over eighteen, okay? because I never ignored raitings. 

2. Fixing It. Which is pretty much the story of how I'm now maybepossiblytoacertainextentandonlyinfics/fanart shipping Makorra. Shuddup. It's very well done and, as the author says, proves how the ship could have been something really fantastic with only a few little tweaks here and there. Minimum tweaks, even. Just slight inklings of character growth and we'd have been there

This was brought to you by my conflicted feelings over Mako's general existence... ::facepalm::

Also, these are neat too:
Her Consort by Aimsaru (Korra/Mako, R)
let the butterflies cry by Nautica Dawn (Korra/Asami, Asami/Korra/Mako, R)
The Cave by masksarehot (Amon/Korra. But not like that. I mean, yes like that, but it's not creepy, nor does it have all the inherent power dynamics I would expect such a pairing to have, it's about how they have the same goals but go about achieving them in completely different directions and how they negotiate these differences, while being completely hot for each other. Bonus points for Amon's third IC being his total bff, and utterly HBIC. Oh, and Amon's not Tarrlok's brother and there is a scar on his face and going any further would be hugely spoilery. R) 

Apparently I just really want Korra to get laid. Btw, I am NOT shipping Amorra. I just really dig that fic. Because it's a good fic. 

On things what aren't so good: I still have a headache. Which meas I was only able to bag two-and-a-half hours of sleep, which explains the fic-reading, movie-watching spree. It will also explain all the jokes I'll be missing today. 

Hmmm, I'm sitting here considering the possibility of making a Zuko/Katara rec list. In case anyone on here would like to read it. By which I mean, in case PIPER would like to read it. These lands are deserted these days.

Hahaha Wang Lee Hom is brilliant, even when he acts in really questionable shows, not that Lust, Caution is one of those. You know who is more brilliant though? Tony Leung. I might love him slightly more than you-know-who. I don't think I can watch Lust Caution. Too painful. I don't know why Tony Leung always acts in these sorts of films. Very annoying.

Lol, guess what? I just ordered Avatar book 1 from Amazon because it's nigh impossible to get off the Internet to my everlasting disappointment. Why am I shipping Zuko/Katara when I've not watched more than 2 episodes? It must be your fault, :p

Oh man, Tony Leung. Oh, man. It was very intense, yes. Though I'm thinking that maybe your pain has something to do with the historical setting? I'm really not that well versed on Chinese history, but I do know it's convoluted and that China has had it's fingers in everyone's pies at one point or another... but yeah, even with my shamefully empty folder on the subject it was very hard to watch.

So, your reservations have been overcome? It is a really good show, and I would have hated for LoK's failings to put you permanently off of it. I am a bad influence, I own up to this. Which eps would those be? ::hands to chin::
