I totally meant to mention that [ profile] shrewreader has been doing some very fun Avengers stuff, both in her regular and her fic journal, [ profile] shrewreadings .  Go read and enjoy!

And here's a screengrab play-by-play of the IM3 trailer released yesterday.

I have an Avengers BigBang fic rec for those of you who enjoy Steve/Tony.  Though most of the fic is more of a teamfic, it does have some STony in it.

Containment by D (come_feed_the_rain)

Caveat: This was written by a friend and I did a minor amount of beta on it so I may be a tad prejudiced, but I think it's excellent!

eta:  and as long as we're talking about things Marvel, the first Iron Man 3 trailer has been released.  Wow. (ganked from [personal profile] bethbethbeth )

Do any of you who are Americans say 'meant to' instead of 'supposed to' (as in "You were meant to be at work" rather than "You were supposed to be at work.") and if so, what part of the country are you from? I'm just curious because I keep running across the phrase in Avengers fanfic and every time I read it I hear the phrase in a suspension-of-disbelief-breaking British accent in my head. I've run across a quite a few Avengers fic which badly needed US-picking (just as I've read a lot of Sherlock stories that really needed Brit-picking) but 'meant to' keeps appearing in stories which don't otherwise appear to need it so I am wondering if there are places in the US where that's common usage. 

Also, as long as I'm here- I have a sort of mini-rant: when did the word "important" lose it's first "T"?  Lately it seems like about 90% of the time I hear it pronounced on (US) TV, the person saying it says "impor'ant" not "imporTant". It drives me nucking futz.
