Hi!
I'm Ariel (also known as Azaliz), and I love to gush over stories & universes I hold dear! ✨

I'm currently passionate about:
- the Marvel Cinematic Universe (all MCU movies and shows)
- some other Marvel characters (the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, comic Clint)
- the Shadowhunters saga by Cassandra Clare

Apart from that, I strive to make my toots as accessible as possible (image descriptions, CWs, few emojis).

Looking forward to talking/screaming with y'all :heartSparklesTrans:

Marvel Comics I read / planning to read:

- Hawkeye: Freefall βœ…
- Hawkeye 2012 (the Fraction run) βœ…
- the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl ▢️
- Ms Marvel ⏹️ (read the first 4 issues, didn't love it so didnt read the remake)
- Young Avengers
- Jessica Jones: Alias 🚫 (I haven't watched the show because it would be too harsh for me. I hoped the comics were easier to read but nope I didn't last 10 pages)

Steve & Bucky timeline; spoilers for every MCU movie with Captain America 

This is one of the things I'm the most proud of :amaze: A comprehensive timeline of everything that happened in Steve & Bucky's life in the MCU!

In honor of of releasing a new song, let me remind you that Gerard Way uses they/he pronouns and has talked at length about their gender feels, even saying "when I discovered the idea of transgenderism I considered myself to be more of a girl" :rainbowEyes:​

Heartstopper 

I loved how real the characters' experiences felt!! I related to some moments *a lot*, especially thinking back to when I was 14, 15, 16

and I *really* appreciated how the tone of the show was mostly happy (rather than angsty or heavy) but without being unrealistic or rose-tinted.

I have now watched heartstopper,, and I absolutely loved it !! πŸ’›

Review of "Nettle & Bone" by T. Kingfisher, discussion of sadness, death-spoilers 

I finished T. Kingfisher's "Nettle and Bone" last night, and my overall impression was that it was just a very sad book.

I'm not saying the writing wasn't good! I mean by the end I was sad for the main character, sad for her love interest, sad for her sister, sad for their fairy godmother, sad for the OTHER fairy godmother... basically sad for anyone we got any sort of character development for, and a few we didn't.

I think I never got over her just quietly accepting as a child that her sister hated her, and it colored my whole reading of the book. Again, not saying it's bad writing, or implausible! It feels entirely too plausible, and maybe that's the problem for me.

My wife read it after I did, and as is our habit she read aloud bits that made her chuckle. I recognized them all, and they also made me laugh when I wasn't immersed in the general sadness of reading the story. And in retrospect I really loved the clever solutions they came up with - it's definitely not a "magic fixes everything" situation. But your mileage may definitely vary with this book, so if you start to feel sad while reading it, and don't want to keep feeling sad, it might be better to put it down and read one of her Paladin books or other non-dark-fantasy.

  • The sister who doesn't hate the MC dies offscreen early in the book.
  • A child-aged niece dies offscreen.
  • There's multiple encounters with the grossness of decayed bodies, both animate and non-.
  • A person who really, truly wishes to die does so on screen after the heroes enable it.
  • The bad guy dies on screen at the hands of the heroes.
  • The dog made of bones turns out okay in the end, and the chickens are both fine.

Matrix movies 

I watched the two first Matrix movies with a friend tonight!

I used to watch the first one every night after school at some point of my teenage years so I still knew it by heart, but I hadn't watch it in at least 15 years and the nostalgia was real :blobCatHeart:

I had watched the second one only once but I still remembered some stuff from it!

β€œViolence is never the answer” is a common refrain from people who have never been forced to fight for their lives and I, for one, am tired of society taking this refrain seriously when it comes from people privileged enough to have never been in these kinds of positions.

The Way Up

It's a long road to recovery, but Bucky's got this. Breaking into Steve's apartment sounds like a good start.

Had a bit of a frustrating morning, so I decided to re-read the completed webcomic "Always Human". It's a terribly sweet, honest story about two young women falling in love and supporting each other in figuring out their lives. Sci-fi setting, very queer friendly, 100% G-rated as far as the art goes. webtoons.com/en/romance/always

Someone made a Dear Theodosia cover as a friendship/love song between Evan Hansen and Connor Murphy, perfectly mashing up two of my favorite musicals: and :amaze:​

Hm, in my preferences I chose "Always expand posts marked with content warnings," but it's still hiding things behind content warnings. Does anyone know why this is?
