    Summary

    (excerpt from a review of the new show, "Meet Cute")

    Meet Cute, a show that could have been mindless hiatus-filler, promises weeks of effortless chemistry mixed with surprising emotional twists. In a throwback to old Hollywood, leads Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons trade biting snark and witty banter, but with a decidedly modern sensibility.

    As part of the experimental conceit of the series, each episode features entirely new characters and a new premise, with one coherent running thread — the leads meet and fall in love each week. In a further nod to Coulson's paradigm-transcending concept, every character on the show is named after the actor who plays them.

    Jemma Simmons (Nothing Personal), is a surprising standout as lead, showcasing her versatility and effortless emotional range. Starring opposite is Leo Fitz, known best for his well performed turns in the short-lived series Yes Men, Chaos Theory, and Watchdogs, who shines as Jemma's romantic foil. Together, they bring a spot-on, electric chemistry that seems to transcend the confines of the small screen, stunning enough that fans are already starting to refer to them as “Fitzsimmons”.

    Summary

    William Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet are both famous actors, known for their amazing on screen chemistry. But what the audience thinks of as romantic is really Darcy’s confused crush and Elizabeth’s disgust. Too bad they each think the other’s on the same page about where they stand.

    Summary

    The one where Steve and Bucky are both actors who meet on the Evening Show with Clint Barton. They fall for each other hard - as you'd expect - but things get in the way - though no one falls off any trains.

    This is a tale involving motorcycles, cuddling, disgustingly cute emails, terrifying Russian actresses, heartbreak, snarky New Yorkers, ridiculously convoluted plots between interested parties, and maybe, just maybe love.

    Summary

    Newcomer actress Sansa Stark is cast opposite award winning veteran actor Jon Snow in GRRM's upcoming mobster biopic - A Game Of Loans.

    Known as the nation's sweetheart with her cheerful and lovable personality, Sansa Stark works hard and strives only for the best. She sees the production as a chance to break free from her typecast, an opportunity to finally be taken seriously.

    Jon Snow on the other hand, is long past his prime, known nowadays more for his unprofessionalism and his drunken antics - he shows up two hours late on the first day of production, reeking of alcohol and mistaking her for his assistant.

    Emotions quickly clash and personalities collide, but in filming those long winter nights, they do share the same autumn skies. For when the lights dim and the cameras roll, they find themselves in the same world after all.

    Summary

    Aramis' day had quickly turned from awful to this-might-just-be-the-lowest-moment-of-my-life awful. Then he gets a call from Treville telling him about a musical he could star in… when it gets funded, of course. Suddenly he's sleeping on Athos' sofa and cursing himself for falling for the gorgeous, scarred man playing opposite him.

    It's just his luck that he chooses to fall in love with someone who turns up at the start of each day with a new bruise to add to his collection. But then again, maybe it isn't as unlucky as it could be.

    This is the story of five unemployed actors trying to survive and create something worthwhile in London, falling in love, creating a family and maybe even getting their show to the West End.

    Summary

    I host a writing challenge called Writing Prompt Wednesday on my Tumblr (unforth-ninawaters). I've written hundreds of prompts at this point and it occurred to me that having them all on AO3 would make it easier for others to find them, so here are all the prompts I've done. Each chapter is one week worth of themed prompts; themes are tagged in the Additional Tags. Some prompts imply MCD and other potentially triggering content.

    If you have an idea for a theme for me to write prompts about, please let me know in a comment or on Tumblr. If you write a story for ANY FANDOM based on these prompts, please add it to the Writing Prompt Wednesday collection!

    Summary

    Clarke laughs. “What, you mean the sapphic soliloquy?”

    Lexa's chest twists at the term, nails carving patterns into her palms. Because Clarke is, quite probably, maybe, most likely, straight, because Clarke is straight, and it sounds... strange, that's all, like hearing an old turn of phrase that the world stopped using for a while.

    “Yes. I guess, it seems a little ridiculous to be inciting “all the legions of hell” in the name of “true love,” when they've known each other all of five minutes.”

    Lexa pretends she hasn't been blinded, brightened, since that day at the theatre// chased by clouds of lilac potion, a witchcraft drew me to this moment.

    “I don't think so.”
