my fanfiction AU subgenres of choice that transcend fandom boundaries seem to be:
-always a different (cis)gender
-omegaverse in which no one has sex and everyone grapples with institutional inequality (which i always post anonymously, yolo)
-a character played by matthew mcconaughey picking up a hitchhiker who turns out to be an abused teenage girl whose canon killed her off just for shock value and then peaceably parting ways after unsettling conversation
renfields said: Drive was worth watching for me for Oscar Isaac's character and for Bernie and Nino (Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman) being old cynical Jewish gangster partners. The blonde white leads didn't bother me but Gosling is more interesting as a force of nature than a character - the movie definitely could have been a horrible piece of trash if not for the interference of smart and talented actors who changed things about it, but there are still pretty questionable bits
This definitely has my interest a bit more piqued! I didn’t even know that Ron Perlman and Oscar Isaac were in this movie until today, which just goes to show you that the people I’ve heard talking about it were not interested in the same things I am, I guess. And I am ALL FOR talented actors salvaging what would otherwise have been a trainwreck.
I forgot that Frailty is set in Texas, how on earth am I going to contrive a way for Ada and Adam to meet
FILE COMPLAINT UNDER: lame writing problems for a fic so specific to my interests that no one else will read it
