AGH! Was that flicker not fantastic? I seriously had all the love for that movie.

It was! I love the direction they've taken the Bond films in since Craig took over as Bond. Just ludicrous enough, with a strong plot and excellent acting and emotional involvement. I love the Bond franchise, but these feel like the best of both worlds. Lots of action and a good deal of heart.

What I liked about it was not only backstory on Bond, but how the whole movie was basically about violence against women, and how Bond will not stand for it. Yeah, it was an action flick, but it also had what I thought was a really powerful message.

I had seen a few things on tumblr (a land of angry, angry people) about it being a very sexist movie, and misogynistic in its portrayal of the women involved, and I sort of didn't see that at all. I thought all three main women in the story were strong in their own way. Especially in comparison to some of the women we've seen Bond around over the years. It's a step forward at least.

I still haven't seen it (no money to buy the DVD yet and as I *want* to buy the dvd - actually, I want to buy the 3 film box set - I don't want to download it, though I may yet cave). Hasn't stopped me *reading* crossovers though...

You do know that telling yourself not to write crossovers only makes it more likely that you will because they'll be insidious and sneak up on you - of course they will, James Bond is a spy after all, sneaking comes naturally for that verse.

Oh and if you do write them, I can guarantee I'll read them. :)

I just really like crossovers. I like combining 'verses and...and...stuff.

It is very good when you get around to seeing it. One of the best, I think, though I do have a very large soft spot for Casino Royale still.

At least I know one person will support my madness. Which, you know, is probably not healthy. My f-list are a bunch of enablers.

Will you join the multitudes and do crossover fics where Q is the lost 3rd Holmes brother?
The Writer They Call Tay: BB: Oh No!awanderingbard on March 4th, 2013 01:12 am (UTC)
...Yes. *hangs head*

I can't help it! You know what brotherly relationships do to me! It's tumblr's fault...I never meant for this to happen. Please, save me!

I also kinda of like the one where M is their mother. I think combining the two might be fun.

...please send help.

formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on March 4th, 2013 01:38 am (UTC)
I cannot help nor send help because I am currently being held in the prison you are about to enter.

Seriously, when Q first appeared my first thought was, "Hello, Sherlock's little brother." And then I went on Tumblr and IT WAS ALL OVER. It's the hair, I tell you. The freakishly similar hair.

Oh and the fact that he's a genius (Sherlock-ish) with perhaps some ideas of or at least some fantasies of world domination. As in he knows he can do it if he tried (Mycroft-ish).
The Writer They Call Tay: BB: just a yoawanderingbard on March 4th, 2013 01:43 am (UTC)
*clings to you* Thank you for understanding! Maybe we could join some sort of programme. Or create one.

I've always thought Whishaw and Cumberbatch looked alike. I've even mistaken them for each other when glancing past photos. It's definitely the hair, though, I agree. And the ubiquitous British cheekbones.

I like the idea of three laconic brothers, badass in their own ways, helping each other out of the ridiculous situations they get themselves into, and not even letting on that they care about each other. They just quietly save each other's arses, which means 'I care' in Holmes.

I have to find a suitably Holmesian name for Q, though. I know 'Sherrinford' is the popular one, but that always seemed too close to Sherlock for my liking.

This might get even more so if Cumberbatch ends up being the next Bond villain as per the rumors. They'll need to keep his hair it's normal gingery color or else I really won't be able to stop myself from thinking the Bond Villain is somehow related to Q.

There have been fics out there where Q tries to figure out if Sherlock really did jump off that building and where Sherlock and Mycroft get involved in MI6's business. They've ranged from Awesome! to Okay Now You're Just Making Things Ridiculous.

Wasn't Sherrinford the original name of Sherlock Holmes before ACD decided against it? I could be making that up.

M as mummy has always made sense to me...
The Writer They Call Tay: DH: Random Happenstanceawanderingbard on March 6th, 2013 04:18 am (UTC)
Me too! I'm waffling on whether I can make both 'verse work together. Without spoiling anything, it would take a bit of hand waving on my part in regards to Q and M and their relationship or lack thereof in the film, but I think I might be able to make it work...

...It can't be helped; Ben Whishaw looks too much like a little Holmes, doesn't he?! :)
The Writer They Call Tay: BB: just a yoawanderingbard on March 5th, 2013 12:11 am (UTC)
He does! I suppose I shouldn't complain about inspiration. It may leave, and that would be much worse than having too much. :-D
