Today is my precious cinnamon roll Tom Hiddleston‘s 35th birthday! So naturally, instead of writing my recap of The 100, I’m here fangirling.

Tom has had a busy few years, and the list speaks for itself. In celebration of his birthday, monumental talent, and astonishingly perfect face, let’s take a look at what he has coming to screens near you.

Hello class and welcome back to Shipping 101!

Today, we are going to board a new slash ship of mine–Stucky. This pairing has impressed itself upon my heart and has been gaining momentum since I experienced the wonder that is Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Now, I’ve been taught by the dear Admiral herself, the first rule of shipping is DO NOT SINK SOMEONE ELSE’S SHIP (which is why she and I don’t discuss Doctor Who ships or, apparently, Captain America slash). Yes, you may have your opinions and your preferences, but they don’t have to be mine and vice versa. I promise not to write a manifesto about Stucky if you promise not to force your ships into my harbor, so to speak.

That means, if you don’t like it, don’t read it, simple as that.


“Stucky” is a slash ship pairing between Steve Rogers aka Captain America (Chris Evans) and his lifelong companion and friend, Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). While I do not claim to be a Marvel comic book aficionado, I am a Marvel movie fan. My appreciation for the films has caused me to explore the Marvel Universe through cosplay, film and even develop an interest in the comics–although I am wary of attempting to go through 70+ years of comics just to prove myself worthy to talk about Marvel. Still–and trust me I’ve heard it already–I DO recognize that this beautiful ship is NOT canon according to the comics (although, I beg to differ in terms of the films).

And you know what? I don’t care.

It’s that time of year again. Time for beach trips, expensive air conditioning bills, and films with so many explosions it could be one of Michael Bay’s wet dreams. I’m not as ecstatic as I was last year around this time, mostly because X-Men: Days of Future Past already hit theaters. BUT there are a few films that I will pay the exorbitant theater prices to see based on their trailers alone.

Scarlett Johansson won me over as Black Widow (so  much so that I’ll cosplay her at any opportunity), so this film with her as the lead? Yeah, I’m at the front of the line marked HELL YES.

In USA theaters July 25, 2014.
