fanfic/fanwork pet peeves

ONE:

newton the borderline manic pixie dream boy puppy who is just so eager for hermann’s affection yet idk why since hermann’s a coldfish jerk

i lol’d a couple of weeks back when i looked at the tag for the first time in months and immediately came across two such fanworks)

TWO:

hermann hitting newton with his cane 

or anyone 

outside of a self-defense scenario

like honestly, 

a) much as i love the idea of secret badass hermann, and do firmly believe that while engaged in his work (or origami, drafting, coding, etc) he has steady, even artistic hands, totally precise, like i bet he can draw a perfect circle kind of shit… lookit mr fumbly hands otherwise, man

(which doesn’t like make him incapable of a rap to the shins but w/e)

b) AND THE KEY POINT

seriously, given how much of a comic relief role they played in the film, if hermann was the type to hit newton with his cane when aggravated, and newton sorely asked for it, he would have

you just know that would have gone down, as it’s easy, even expected physical humor

obviously super important sry

stranger than fiction newtmann au

hermann gottlieb the irs agent of infinite calculations

timing and measuring everything in his life

sent to audit the owner of a kaiju themed bakery

(as in just standard japanese monster movie fair) 

when the narrator suggests he’s imagining newton inappropriately, hermann

who has already gotten off on the wrong foot with the tattoo covered guy who shouted GET BENT TAXMAN at him as a greeting

(and argued that he didn’t pay *those* taxes because he disagreed with where that money was going)

loudly squawks 

WHAT

"you heard me government swine!"

hearing a voice is a bad sign but it must be especially bad if it is criminally insane 

(sasha kaidanovsky cameo:  hermann it’s ok

it’s wednesday)

bear with me — the cracked article has since disappeared but I was reading one earlier about movie titles receiving inexplicable translations in other languages, and apparently, in Germany, Godzilla = Frankenstein, with added dubbing to excuse it, like

http://www.moviestack.com/posts/21938-why-does-the-poster-say-frankenstein
so what i’m saying to you is
imagine newt’s face when he starts babbling to hermann about godzilla and finally comprehension dawns slowly across hermann’s face and he says
“Oh, Frankenstein!”
imagine newton’s face

Let it be known that I’ve watched Pacific Rim again.

I mean, I missed most of it in a haze of nostalgia and recognising a pair of shoes, but an effort was made.

also i realized the other day that I’m a complete idiot and had accidentally selected, while capping the blooper reel, to have it at that 6— x 4— size instead of original. I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS SMALLER BECAUSE IDK BLOOPER REEL but then I was capping the proper movie and confused by the small files until I pulled my head out of my butt.
