So. I made this fanfic for the 2013 [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb. And then life happened, so the accompanying fic didn't happen, and somehow I just never got around to posting my fanmix. But I'm actually really happy with how it turned out, so I figured I should actually post it.

Pairing(s): Clint Barton/Phil Coulson
Rating: PG-13 to be safe
Universe: movieverse
Warnings: None
Summary: Clint and Phil. In high school.
Notes: This was way too freaking much fun to make. Left-aligned are Clint's lyrics, right-aligned are Phil's, and center-aligned are for both.

Since I saw it today, thought I'd squee about it here too. Copy-pasta'd from my tumblr, because lazy.

Excuse the fucked-up formatting, apparently bullet points don't copy over.

Hey everyone! I dunno if I've talked about it much, but I'm participating in the Avengers Reverse Big Bang again this year.

The art claims post went up this morning. And while over half the art pieces have been claimed already, there are still ten pieces left unclaimed.

So if you're a writer who's got some time, why not check it out?

(My piece has already been claimed. But it would be fantastic to see every piece get claimed this year, because last year's RBB had a few pieces that nobody ended up claiming, and I felt super bad for them.

Plus, if everything is claimed, they'll probably open up a second round of claims, for anybody who missed the first round. And that would be kind of awesome.)

Just signed up to do Avengers RBB again this year. Absolutely at the last minute.

Because I had an idea hit me at 1:30 in the morning. LAST NIGHT.

So, uh. Provided I can actually DO it, I'm considering a fanmix for a Clint/Coulson high school AU. Because you can never have enough HSAUs.

(What have I gotten myself into. Again. This thing TOOK OVER MY LIFE last year.)
uberniftacular: (Avengers: Tony double)
Recent accomplishments, since it's been a long fucking time since I updated this thing:

- Hosted Thanksgiving at my house. Only 6 people, not too bad.
- Job interview yesterday went fairly well, yay!
- Kicked ASS during Hufflepuff Knight Week at [livejournal.com profile] hogwartsishome.
- Made an assload of Harry Potter icons (here if you're interested)
- Finished making Tashmas gift! Two whole weeks early! (Still need to code the post and maybe make a banner. Maybe.)
- Also made an even bigger assload of Avengers icons. (Check it out.)
- Signed up for [community profile] fandom_stocking. Because apparently I really like making shit.

Things I have not accomplished recently:
- Getting much of anything done on my Clint/Coulson fic I'm supposed to be working on. Oh well.
- Acquired job. *sigh*
uberniftacular: (Avengers: Clint/Coulson)
Here, finally, is the fanmix I made for [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb.
Fic: Caught in Death's Shadow by the incredible [livejournal.com profile] coffeebuddha.

Pairing(s): Clint Barton/Phil Coulson
Rating: PG-13 to be safe
Universe: movieverse
Warnings: No content warnings, but a mood warning in that some of the lyrics imply a depressive/potentially suicidal mindset
Summary: Clint learns how to trust, and Phil is always there to catch him
Notes: So you'll notice that the songs aren't balanced in terms of number of songs from Clint's POV vs. Phil's POV - I'm pretending that this was intentional and justifying it by saying that Clint talks too much for his own good sometimes, while Phil says less because his words are more carefully considered. Also, this mix honestly took me by surprise while I was making it: I totally wasn't expecting it to have a narrative of its own (it was initially supposed to be a fun little mix about Clint going to see a ska show, but the lyrics I was finding developed their own story). So it's been a fun ride, and I'm excited that I finally get to show it to people!


If I'm Not Right with You )
uberniftacular: (Avengers: Clint explosion)
So I was listening to my ipod, and "Light my Candle" from RENT popped up.

And apparently that means that my head has decided it wants a RENT/Avengers fusion.

Just. This exchange reads so much like Tony/Steve to me:
[MIMI]
They say I have the best ass below 14th street
Is it true?
[ROGER]
What?
[MIMI]
You're staring again.
[ROGER]
Oh no.
I mean you do -- have a nice --
I mean -- You look familiar
[MIMI]
Like your dead girlfriend?

So yeah, that happened. And I've planned out like...half of the characters. For something I will NOT ACTUALLY WRITE, because I'm not that good. And yeah, the character comparisons aren't that great for some of them, but here's what I've got so far (if anybody's actually interested. PLOT BUNNY FREE TO A GOOD HOME.)

Mimi - Tony
Roger - Steve
Maureen - Clint (what? he's hot. everybody wants him. I mean, you could probably make an argument that Tony is more like Maureen, but Steve isn't a good Joanne, so.)
Joanne - Phil (If I were to actually write this, I would TOTALLY give them a happier ending than Joanne and Maureen actually got, though.)
Benny - Pepper (because Benny and Mimi had a thing for a while. OOH, and that makes "Muffy" [or whatever her actual name is] Happy Hogan, I think.)

I don't really have ideas for who gets to be Mark or Collins or Angel. I mean, who've I got left to work with? Bruce and Tasha and Thor. Well. And Fury and Maria and Darcy and Jane, I guess.

I want to write. Like, I have this desperate feeling that I REALLY WANT TO BE WRITING RIGHT NOW.

But I have no inspiration.

There are bits and pieces of a couple fics floating around in my head (all Avengers, as if this is any surprise to anybody right now), a little, but I can't really write those. I want to, but I don't think I can get the character voices right.

Also, I have a massive problem when I try to write: fic doesn't come to me in WORDS. What I get is flashes of images: a character dancing, two people sitting in a car talking, stuff like that. It rarely comes in words. And so even when I'm feeling inspired, it's hard to translate from the image on my head to words on a screen.

And it's just...very frustrating. Because I want to write, I really do. My fingers are all "I need to be typing right now, make me write something!" (No, I don't really know, I just have this need to type. I don't understand it either.)

On top of the two fics that I might eventually actually get around to writing, I've got another random bunny that was totally inspired by a song I recently listened to, and it's something that I would love to see, but I think it's going to involve PLOT, which is something I'm not great at. I'm decent at, like...little scenes and stuff, but not really good at things that might have plot involving more than a few scenes at most. (I've got another fic that I've actually started writing, that's Warehouse 13/Eureka, that's going to be long and plotty and full of FEELINGS and I have no idea if or how it's ever going to get done. Because PLOT. And lots of serious emotions. Oh, and a baby. WHY do I do these things to myself?)

Um. And I still want ALL THE AVENGERS AUs too. And people are making pretty graphics but nobody seems to actually be writing them? Which makes me desperately wish I could do actual art, because I'd totally have done some AU art for the RBB.

Because seriously, AUs I want include:
-fantasy (DRAGON!COULSON. 'nuff said.)
-the 1940s/film noir/private eye one (I have a THING about fedoras and pinstripes, and also these pictures happened)
-rock band (unf, pretty people with guitars)
-Victorian
-Whatever era it's called that Downton Abbey is set in (period dramas are awesome, okay?)
-a jazz age one would be pretty awesome too. (Tony Stark in a speakeasy. C'mon.)
-STEAMPUNK oh my god. I want everything to be steampunk all the time.
-Pirates!
-zombie apocalypse (because every fandom needs their own zombie apocalypse AU)
-cop drama (I love me some cop drama)
-Western
-always more high school/college AUs, because those are always ALWAYS a good thing
-also always more coffee shop/bakery AUs
-ETA: And also a fusion of Avengers and Warehouse 13, except set at Warehouse 12, where the Avengers are agents and work with HG Wells, because that would be kind of cool. Also, Tony Stark in the Warehouse.

These are things I cannot write. (Please let me know if anybody has written any of these already? Because if they have, I desperately wish to read them. CRAVING good fic, particularly longfic, right now. It helps, a bit, with the part where I want to write.)

...I think my fanmix is done.

Like, with covers and everything.

Ugh.

Jun. 7th, 2012 09:16 pm
uberniftacular: (Avengers: Clint/Coulson)
So. That fanmix?

The music part is DONE. :D

Only problem is that now I have to do cover art, and I want it to look good, but I can tell already it's going to be terrible. There are NO GOOD CAPS of Clint that I've managed to find. I've got a bunch of Coulson caps, but not a lot of good stuff with Clint. Particularly, I wanted to use something where he's NOT holding a weapon, and...well...those don't exist, apparently.

Know what else doesn't exist? A single shot in which Clint and Coulson are in the same frame.

Plus, I don't understand how people do such pretty blending and stuff. Like, I don't know, this one. Or this one. Or, oh man, do you guys remember any of the mixes veronicasleeps made before she deleted her journal? Those are like...my ultimate ideal. (THIS ONE! It's still on tumblr! And this one. God. HOW DOES ONE EDIT LIKE THIS?!)

Yeah. I genuinely don't understand how to do this blending thing. And tutorials on youtube are supremely unhelpful. YES I KNOW HOW TO CUT THINGS OUT OF THE BACKGROUND USING THE PEN TOOL. WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS HOW TO STICK MULTIPLE IMAGES TOGETHER WITHOUT THEM LOOKING LIKE THE FUCKING RANCOR BEAST.

(As kind of an aside, my brain is a strange place. So you know how in the minimalist Avengers art that's going around, Clint is represented by his bow, and Coulson is represented by a tie? So does that mean I can represent the ship by a bowtie?

...I am a MASSIVE DORK.)

...Yeah, this has been me bitching. Sorry.

On the up side, I keep listening to my mix over and over and I quite like it?

Stop being in ALL THE DAMNED SONGS.

In a place where comfort shouldn't be
I found comfort and tranquility.
I've found friends that mean so much to me,
In a place I never thought I'd be.
The cave's never coming down on me.
The cave really, means so much to me.
The cave only gives.
I'm glad the cave is where I live.
Ok, so sometimes things get out of hand.
And peace of mind is in great demand.
I climb up to the top...
Look around and it all seems to stop.


"The Cave" by Mighty Mighty Bosstones. (No music link this time, because apparently this song doesn't exist on the internet?)

Um. This song is about Clint moving into Stark Tower with the rest of the Avengers?

(Ugh. Songs. Stop it. UNLESS YOU ARE A CLINT/COULSON SONG, GO AWAY. I am trying to finish my goddamned fanmix.)

Icons!

May. 27th, 2012 04:34 pm
uberniftacular: (Avengers: Coulson)
I finally have Avengers icons!

...except that I don't have one for Tony, and that's bothering me. (I'm desperately craving one of the face he makes in the beginning of Iron Man 2, right when the mask comes off when he's on stage. But am too lazy to go searching for one right now, and I don't have Iron Man caps to just make one myself. *sigh*)

Also, there are not enough Coulson icons in the world. Up side, I've got Avengers trailer caps now, so I might just make some myself.
uberniftacular: (Default)
I’m going to be making graphics for a fanmix soon, and I don’t have any good caps of Clint or Coulson (because the only place I know of for Marvel movie caps doesn’t have an Avengers gallery yet). So for those of you who’ve made Avengers graphics, where do you get your screencaps?

Ack

ALL THE SONGS SOUND LIKE CLINT TO ME. I'm not sure what this says about my choice in music.

Goo Goo Dolls - Acoustic #3
They painted up your secrets
With the lies they told you
And the least they ever gave you
Was the most you ever knew

And I wonder where these dreams go
When the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screaming
No one's listening anyway

Your voice is small and fading
And you hide in here unknown
And your mother loves your father
'Cause she's got nowhere to go


Hello, Clint's backstory, anybody?


And, more superficially, this snippet from Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out
So if you're lonely
You know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot away from you


Yeah, I don't really know where this is going. My head is full of Clint songs. (I just found one that's PERFECT for my headcanon version of Clint for my ska mix, it's very exciting. Still need more Coulson ska, though...)
uberniftacular: (Music: RBF onefish)
Trying to make a shippy fanmix that's all ska?

Is fucking HARD. Ska music is like...90% breakup songs, and 10% songs about beer.

(Um. I might have signed up for [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb and am making a Clint/Coulson fanmix? This is all [livejournal.com profile] entwashian's fault.)
uberniftacular: (Default)
Yeahh, so, I got excited. Have a fanmix. (Spoiler-free!)

Things I Intended to Do This Weekend: (roughly in order of importance)
-Go to work and do work stuff (both days, ugh I hate grad school SFM right now)
-Gather data and put together presentation for Friday lab meeting
-laundry
-dishes
-do some landcomm stuff

Things I Actually Did This Weekend:
-Work
-Put one piece of data on flash drive
-Watched 2 or 3 episodes of ST:DS9
-Read ALL THE CLINT/COULSON and ALL THE STEVE/TONY I could find recced anywhere
-laundry
-dishes
-EAT ALL THE THINGS (seriously, wtf?)
-made a picspam for crimeland
-had idea for Avengers fanmix. Found half necessary songs. iTunes informed me I should be making a "Tony Stark's Favorite Music" fanmix instead. Am still arguing with iTunes.
-stared at Jeremy Renner's arms for a while
-also stared at Clark Gregg in some sexy glasses for a while
-Plotbunnied. Twice. For something I will never be able to write.

So yes, I spent the ENTIRE weekend on the internet (except for the...6 hours I was at work?).

PLOTBUNNIES FREE TO A GOOD HOME:
-Clint/Coulson fic, dragon!Coulson. Inspired by this tumblr post. Bonus points for not-a-damsel-in-distress!Natasha.
-and the AU where the Avengers are a band, and Coulson is their manager or something. Bonus points if Hulk is the drummer and there are Muppets references.

...yeah, I don't understand how my brain works either.
