[it's a bead. with a shimmer]  

OH MY GOD, YOU GUYS.

Have you seen this movie called Push? Please tell me you have, and please tell me that you ship Nick/Cassie like burning because I don't want to be the only one who ships all the wrong thing ever.

But seriously though, apart from the fact that Chris Evans and Dakota Fanning are gorgeous, THE CHEMISTRY.

Really, is there any person in the world who saw this movie and went 'omg Nick/Kira is so cute, brb shipping forever <3'. Kira is beautiful, and Nick/Kira could be cute, but um, Cassie is fierce beyond measure, so. And tbh, I didn't even feel like I was misreading directorial intentionality, because if they were going for the 'cute younger sister' vibe, wow, that was so much fail. The 'jealous lover vibe' was just blowing all else out of the water. Not to mention all the would-be 'fluff' scenes were so ridiculously angst-ridden, that I literally couldn't figure out what the scene was trying to say in the non-shippy way.

PLZ WATCH THE MOVIE AND SHIP THIS WITH ME. Or you can be all 'aww, that's so cute and sibling', but watch. I mean look at them:

/let there be fic

ETA: [Interviewer to Dakota] : "You'd done a lot of films with very difficult subject matter, but this one was the first time you really seemed very mature and very adult. How did you work that? It was a very interesting relationship that you two built."

[lol@the interviewer shipping it also and trying to get around the squick factor. I SEE WHAT U DID THERE, LADY.]

ETA [2] : Also, fandom has ruined me, because all I could think of while watching was man, their powers are just a smut!fic waiting to happen. Seriously, Mover? Watcher?

Been there, done that, shipping it. :D
Also, read it. Awesome fic is AWESOME.

Sibling? Nuh-uh. To be honest, Nick/Kira didnt even register with me. On the other hand, Nick/Cassie, I was all' HOMG, THESE TWO. THE CHEMISTRY. MUST SHIP IT."

HOW IS IT YOU HAVE FLAWLESS TASTE?

omg, Lolita hook = sold already. That skirt though, lol, I mean it's like it stayed in place with magic or something.

Kira's cute, I was going spare trying to remember where I'd seen her before and then realized she was the daughter from The Ballad of Jack and Rose (hm, incest movie, I really DO have a shipping pattern, lol). But bitch plz, don't be getting all up in my Nick/Cassie. (WHY DID THEY HAVE SO MUCH CHEMISTRY THOUGH, I WAS ALL 'ugh must not ship, must not ship, SHIPPING'.)

YES! You're not alone. And there is fic, and by that I mean really awesome fic. This one here is my favourite.

THERE IS FIC, PRAISE BE <3 But thanks so much, it looks lovely and it's long (besides dress without sleeves is generally fantastic so yay!)

There's even an LJ group and everything. \o/

FINE :D I'll watch it :D YOU KNOW I SHIP ALL THE INAPPROPRIATE LITTLE GIRLS WITH MEN :D
youcallitwinter: i met a man who wasn't thereyoucallitwinter on July 12th, 2012 06:38 pm (UTC)
YOU KNOW I SHIP ALL THE INAPPROPRIATE LITTLE GIRLS WITH MEN :D

LOL, THAT IS AN ACCURATE DESCRIPTION OF ME ALSO. I don't even know why I have such a low squick threshhold D: Acc RL people, it's because I look fifteen at most and therefore always project on the youngest characters (Which seems freudian enough :s)

BUT YOU WON'T BE ALONE, IT SEEMS EVERYONE SHIPS THEM. Watch it and tell me what you thought :D

YESSSSS I SHIP IT I EVEN TRIED TO WRITE FIC FOR IT AND GOT LIKE 10K INTO IT BEFORE I GAVE UP BECAUSE I COULDN'T THINK OF A PLOT OTHER THAN "OKAY SO THEY'RE TOGETHER AND THEY DO AWESOME THINGS"


there's a bunch of kick awesome fic, too. check beadwithshimmer, that's the ship community here on LJ. I think AO3 had some good stuff, too.
youcallitwinter: all we know is distanceyoucallitwinter on July 12th, 2012 07:03 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry, YOU HAVE 10K OF UNFINISHED FIC FOR IT? WHY WOULD YOU EVEN SAY THAT TO ME RIGHT NOW IN THE STATE I'M IN. DD:

BECAUSE I COULDN'T THINK OF A PLOT OTHER THAN "OKAY SO THEY'RE TOGETHER AND THEY DO AWESOME THINGS"

THAT'S MORE PLOT THAN THE MOVIE HAD, SRSLY. I FAIL TO SEE WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT SCENARIO.

(Also, you have an icon? Who are you?)

Totally looking that up; I was so 'omg squee' on finding LJ and ff.net pages because it's like this semi-obscure sci-fi thriller, but obviously the Nick-and-Cassie chemistry proved too much fandom burden to not explore.

Haha, I'm glad I'm not the only one ! I ship them too, I've re-watched the movie twice just for them. Also, I really like the hair of Dakota in it, very cool :D

Now I feel like re-watching it again, damn you ! lol

Haha, I mean look at all the fic people are rec-cing, WE'RE NOT ALONE *hi five* But I'm pretty sure I'll watch the movie again sometime for them. Dakota is just stunning, basically. <3

Haha, REWATCH AND THEN WE CAN BE AT THE SAME LEVEL OF FANGIRLING xD

(THAT GIF <3 That's exactly what I mean by intention; the focus on his hands is so odd, it makes no sense to do that if they're going for cute/fluffy. Not to mention how slow the scene was, and his expression later, like he was trying to control himself or something. What even was up with that? PLATONIC RELATIONSHIPS: YOU ARE DOING THEM WRONG, MOVIE.)

OMG YES I love Push and I ship Nick/Cassie hardcore. High five for shipping all the bad things!

Allow me to take this moment to rec everything this chick has written ever, although specifically the Push stuff: victoria_p. Read it, you will not regret it!
youcallitwinter: bad moon risingyoucallitwinter on July 12th, 2012 07:19 pm (UTC)
I am legit ':D' about how many people seem to have seen the movie and ship Nick/Cassie; I KNEW MY FLIST WAS THE ACTUAL BEST. *wrong shipping five*

And oh man, apparently there is not only fic, there are fic recs, which means there is good fic. LOOKING THROUGH ALL OF IT GUH.
penny_lane_42 on July 12th, 2012 08:15 pm (UTC)
I haven't ever seen it, though now I want to watch it. I do know that everyone I know who's seen it ships those two, so I'd say you're in good company!
youcallitwinter: an everlasting smileyoucallitwinter on July 12th, 2012 08:31 pm (UTC)
I haven't ever seen it, though now I want to watch it.

WATCH IT :D Although the movie's fairly typical and the plot is kind of hilarious at times, but their chemistry kept me going. But seriously though, now I wonder if anyone ships Nick/Kira, lol
Dora Painter: Name@LJtaracarter on July 12th, 2012 08:29 pm (UTC)
Dude, I was all about Nick/Cassie when I saw this! Nick/Kira made no sense to me, at all! You are in no way the only one that ships the wrong things. None of my friends get why I can ship some of the things I do (especially when it comes ot the Vampire Diaries) but come on! There's so much to work with there! Nick/Cassie forever!
youcallitwinter: maybe you'll remember meyoucallitwinter on July 12th, 2012 08:50 pm (UTC)
I am legit surprised by how many people have seen this movie; I thought it was not popular at all! But everyone seems to have the right shipping choices here xD But really, the chemistry was unmistakable! I SHIP PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING POSSIBLE IN TVD, so yeah. :D But Nick/Kira wasn't even developed and it seemed as if even the director just wanted Nick/Cassie since Cassie kept interrupting their ~romantic moments which was adorkable and hilarious!

*bows down*

THEY WERE SO PERFECT, GUH.
redbrunja: push | fate against your willredbrunja on July 13th, 2012 04:03 am (UTC)
Oh, sweetie EVERYONE SHIPS CASSIE/NICK. EVERYONE.

Have a link to all the fics I've bookmarked:

http://www.diigo.com/list/redbrunja/push

and I know there's others at het_reccers.

And tbh, I didn't even feel like I was misreading directorial intentionality, because if they were going for the 'cute younger sister' vibe, wow, that was so much fail. The 'jealous lover vibe' was just blowing all else out of the water.

RIGHT?!?!?! I was shipping them from the TRAILER it had to be deliberate. And come on - when Kira and Nick are having sex, having that intercut with Cassie getting drunk? I mean, really. That is NOT how you get people to ship the age-appropriate couple.

youcallitwinter: our time is nowyoucallitwinter on July 13th, 2012 05:04 pm (UTC)
I AM SO RIDICULOUSLY SURPRISED. Like, not by the shippage but I mean, HOW HAS EVERYONE EVEN SEEN THIS MOVIE? It's just some random thing that I came across and watched accidentally, but it seems SO MANY people have seen it!

You have a list of bookmarked fic? Please excuse me, I'm planning a June wedding.

And come on - when Kira and Nick are having sex, having that intercut with Cassie getting drunk? I mean, really. That is NOT how you get people to ship the age-appropriate couple.

OH MY GOD, YES, WHAT WAS THAT SCENE? I mean seriously. I couldn't even feel bad that Nick/Kira were totally getting it on, when it seemed like even the makers wanted Nick/Cassie, and when she comes in all drunk and his expressions and everything are so typically ~these two will get together by the end. That scene literally made NO sense. Like, usually it'd be there to show how lost the girl is w/o her mom, etc, but here it seemed it was just there to have Cassie be provocative and have a face off with Kira. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING, DIRECTOR?

Maeve: X-Men: Desperationmarble_rose on July 13th, 2012 07:26 am (UTC)
Nick/Cassie = OTP, obv. They're actually pretty popular. This ship kind of exploded after the movie came out, kinda like Logan/Rogue did after the first X-Men movie (omg I don't know if I've ever loved a May-December ship quite as much as I love that one, fuck it, what is my life).
youcallitwinter: bad moon risingyoucallitwinter on July 13th, 2012 07:21 pm (UTC)
I am mostly surprised that everyone seems to have SEEN the movie, rather than the shipping! I had no idea it was so popular, I'd never even heard of it before I saw it!

But, that drunk!Cassie scene; it seemed as if everyone from the actors to the director to the scriptwriter to the camera was hardcore shipping them. (I am a perpetual May/December lover, but this one was exceptionally good!)
