snagged from [ profile] rheakurokawa:

Give me a character or a pairing (or both) and I will tell you three tidbits of my personal headcanon for them.
applicable fandoms:
-harry potter (sort of--the only characters I think that much about are the Blacks, the Lestranges, the Malfoys, and Snape)
-battlestar galactica (the 2003 version)
-pirates of the caribbean
-criminal minds
-a song of ice and fire/game of thrones
ETA: -inglourious basterds! did I forget this one?
ETA 2: because someone rec'd some of the meta in here at a fandom community (I'm still blushing), this post is now open

Oh my heart! Especially the second one.

It hurts so good.

AND OH IT BREAKS HIS HEART ;_______________;

they fall asleep together, tangled up on Gerard's bed, Mikey's hand on Gerard's hip. the vodka mostly washed away all the lipstick--but not all of it. when they wake up in the morning, it's smeared at the corner of Gerard's mouth, blooming red on the line of his jaw.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm I would read SO MUCH from this universe. And your headcanon for the Paramour (especially the bit about waking up next to him, SO matched with canon and lyrics) is so great. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, Hugo. Not well-suited is a masterstroke of understatement. ♥ He is the best sociopath. ♥

From: [identity profile]




I love coming up with backgrounds for characters from IB, though I mostly focus on Shosanna and Fredrick (the script gave me too much to work with not to), but I hadn't given enough focus to Bridget, whom I think is way too underrated.

Also, I ship Bridget with everyone ever, so I can't find a single fault with any of this.

I very much see Bridget as being the sexual dominant; she's a thoroughly modern woman in ways that probably didn't fly too well with Europe in the 1940s and she doesn't care - she does what she wants and that's how it is. I think that's part of why I just love her, and certainly, that's part of why men so easily lose their hearts to her.

And Marla! German resistance! dkdsksdklaskla;

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS IS PERFECT. Especially the Archie/Bridget/Hugo AU ending. Yes, yes, yes.

I'm endlessly fascinated with the idea of how she came to be who she is in the film, of the risks she had to take and the relationships she had to lose in order to do what she did.

Yes, yes, yes! There's so much to her to explore, but that alone is enough to warrant admiration for Bridget.

Okay, so I can't ship her with Shosanna and Fredrick (what I love about them is that out of everyone, they're a couple of kids forced into the war, whereas the others actively fight it, so they're both so separate from the rest yet fitting with each other), but your choices for Bridget are very fitting.

As a seemingly weird, but related aside, have you noticed how Tarantino utilizes women's bare feet the way other directors use nudity? Whenever his women are in positions of vulnerability, sexuality, or power, they're usually barefoot. I bring this up because not only has he gone on about how the projection booth scene is the equivalent to Shosanna and Fredrick making love (lo and behold, he's the only one she's ever barefoot with in such an intimate setting), but Bridget's death, aside from the violence of it, is very sexual. Bridget being forced to put her foot in Landa's lap and him removing her shoe is as if she's forced to let him undress her. Everything about that scene was so personal, especially his anger with her; it's the only time he's ever been shown having such a visceral reaction like that.

As for Bridget and Hugo? I just love it. And the way you worded it is so perfect and makes sense and omg, I am just in awe.

I especially love this bit:
he doesn't want to keep her, he just wants the privilege of being with her (and, by default, the chance to submit to her).

I love this. I love it so much that I want to roll around in it. There's just something so... equal about Hugo and Bridget, and yet, they'd be able to challenge each other on levels that others couldn't.

Another aside: Other than smiling gleefully when killing Nazis, Hugo seemed quite genuine when Wilhelm brought up his son. Now, Hugo and Bridget are as far removed from normalcy as one could be in their situation, but if they were given the chance, do you think they could have something like domestic bliss (or close to it)?

No need to apologize at all! Your brain is a wonderful thing.

Totally agree on the Malfoy thing, he obviously has a genuine connection to the family, and I wish we'd seen more of that ambiguity that was going on behind the scenes in HBP. Also, yesssss on the Snape/Lily thing. That made my stupid conventional canon het shipper heart go flitter-flutter.

OT question, but how have you got your comments looking pretty much normal? I need this to happen. In fact, while I need it to happen in my own journal, I also kind of need it to happen for [ profile] dark_fest, because I had to switch back to the default so the comment fic meme didn't get broken, and it looks shitty. I don't suppose you could have a fiddle with it?

Sorry for the super late response, but life has been crazy. I LOVE THIS COMMENT. I love all this headcanon and I totally agree with it. Barbossa was the reason I first watched Pirates 1, actually, I wasn't really interested in the movie but I was obsessed with Geoffrey Rush at the time. He's still my favourite character in the series, and this headcanon is so spot-on.

Talk to me about Tia Dalma and/or Tia Dalma/Davy Jones? Mostly Tia Dalma.

Talk about a million years to reply to something /o\

I love these so much! Especially the last one. That works for me so much. It would be fantastic.

Thank you!
