Top 5 Hits

Hart of Gold, OUAT, Rumpel/Belle, 5287 hits. Modern Day AU. Isabelle Hart is the latest alias of a legendary grifter and thief. Her latest con involves bringing down ruthless business tycoon, Robert Gold, but this particular job was never her idea... -- I think AU Rumbelle was pretty big when I wrote this. I'm not sure if it would be more of less popular if I wrote & posted it now.

Avengers in Babysitting, MCU, various pairings, 2613 hits. Following the Battle of New York, Darcy Lewis is interning at Stark Tower, where all the of Avengers now live. When a mysterious package arrives for Tony, it's Darcy who must deliver it to the latest Avengers meeting in the conference room. Is it a bomb? A gift? A trophy? An AC/DC record? None of the above - it's a baby. Now the Avengers must face their scariest challenge yet - baby-sitting a six month old! Pepper is blaming Tony, Clint is looking to a future with Natasha, Steve and Thor are thinking about their respective past and future relationships, and Darcy is setting her sights on the softer side of Bruce. All this before they even discover that this isn't any ordinary child they're taking care of... -- written for the Marvel Bang last year, I really didn't expect anyone to read it, but they did! lol

Further on Down the Road, Leverage, ELiot/Parker, 2468 hits. Post-Season 3. After Moreau is dealt with, Eliot feels he must leave the team, maybe just for a while or maybe forever. Parker thinks its a bad idea for him to go away at all, and handles it in her own singular way. -- I loved writing this road trip fic and was thrilled when it proved popular.

What Might've Been, Gilmore Girls, Rory/Jess, 2426 hits. Jess is sent to live with his Uncle Luke around the same time that Lorelai and Rory move into their house in Stars Hollow. Getting to know each other from age eleven leads to an evolved relationship for Rory and Jess that was never romantic, but as the best friends reach age sixteen, what might change? -- My first 'full-length' GG fic.

The Runaways, Gilmore Girls, Rory/Jess, 2198 hits. Rory can't face home after sleeping with Dean, fighting with Lorelai, and touring Europe with her grandma. Running away suddenly looks very appealing, and she's headed towards the one person who always seems to understand her, even when Rory doesn't understand herself. Literati. -- My second 'full-length' GG fic.

Top 5 Kudos

Hart of Gold, 138 kudos.

Avengers in Babysitting, 109 kudos.

A Little Understanding, X-Men, Rogue/Logan, 94 kudos. Of all the people at Xavier's school, nobody understands each other quite as well as Logan and Rogue. -- My first X-Men fic ever, I didn't think anyone woudl luck it since most Rogue/Logan fics tend to err towards smut and mine was just cute ;)

What Might've Been, 82 kudos.

Further on Down the Road, 78 kudos.

Top 5 Bookmarks

Hart of Gold, 28 bookmarks.

Further on Down the Road, 17 bookmarks.

Objects in the Rearview, Leverage, Eliot/Parker, 15 bookmarks. AU Mid-to-Late Season 4. Parker isn't sure what to think when she realises her heart just isn't in her relationship with Hardison. She turns to Eliot for advice, and that only seems to make things more complicated! -- My last major E/P fic before I took a break. Nice to know it didn't suck!

What Might've Been, 15 bookmarks.

The Blame Game, Gilmore Girls, Rory/Jess, 14 bookmarks. Starts in 2.19 Teach Me Tonight. When the car crash happens differently, with wholly different consequences, it causes Rory & Jess to make different choices in their relationships and changes how they both move forward. It also alters things for Luke & Lorelai too. Literati. -- This one was fairly short but I guess some folks just liked it.

All in all, it seems the same few fics get all the hits, kudos, and bookmarks, and its never the ones I expect! lol

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Reaction Post  
This past weekend, I finally got the chance to see Avengers: Age of Ultron. I was a little apprehensive because the general feeling I got from those that had already seen it was that it had issues and a lot of my friends were not overly thrilled with some of the choices made for the new movie. Still, I wanted to see it and make up my own mind, and now I have.

My initial reaction was this - I prefer Avengers Assemble aka The Avengers. If somebody asked me right now, which of these two movies do you want to watch, I'm going to pick the first one. I'm not massively surprised by this, because I seem to prefer Phase 1 to Phase 2 of the MCU all round (with the possible exception of captain America - I do prefer Winter Soldier to The First Avenger, if I'm honest). So, let's get into the whys and wherefores...

So those are my thoughts, long and rambley as ever, you may notice! lol All comments welcome, whether you agree with me or not :)
