coprime: two game-obsessed, winning-obsessed nerds (ships that I ship)

Canon: A Knight's Tale
Pairing: Geoffrey Chaucer/Wat
Canon Level: Conspirators/Coworkers

A Knight's Tale is a fun, silly movie. Chaucer and Wat bicker a lot but work together because they believe in Will and also are maybe friends deep down (really deep down). They're fun to read about if you take their fighting as a not-well-done cover for unresolved sexual tension or as an adult version of pulling pigtails (where either party may or may not realize what's going on). Add in some supposedly unrequited pining beneath everything, and I am happy as a clam.

Part 1 is now done and clocks in at just over 20k. I've gone over it slightly to change things to make more sense, but I'm afraid to look at it too much in case I find it's utterly horrible and nonsensical. I don't think it is, but I also acknowledge that I am completely lacking in objectivity towards this thing.

Anywho, onto Part 2! Which will probably be even longer but needs to get written because I adore two of the scenes I want in it, one of which may end up being the last scene of this part. So far I've got about a thousand words.

(And if I end up not writing Part 2 for some reason, there will probably be a very long, very angry rant about how much I hate the "shovel talk". Haaaaaaate so goddamned much.)

Ugh, I am so glad Detroit beat Nashville last night. I wanted to win before, but after Wednesday's game I want my team to hand Nashville their asses. I get that Weber was pissed because Zetterberg had given him a legal hit a moment before, but shit like this should just not be acceptable:
Cut for video )
The fact that the NHL only fined Weber $2500 gives lie to all the talk they've done about trying to reduce the number of concussions players get. And I just get so mad at how cavalier the NHL is about something that can seriously mess up a person, especially later in life. All you have to do is look at retired football players and boxers to see that multiple concussions have serious, long-lasting effects.

The commentators on Friday's game (the Wings' normal commentators, no less) kept talking about how Weber only cracked Zetterberg's helmet and didn't give him a concussion when he slammed Zetterberg's head into the glass twice. And how the NHL only looks at results - no concussion, no serious penalty - rather than intent in these sorts of things because intent is so hard to judge. And it is such utter bullshit because the only thing that should matter is the action, not results or intent. If a players shoves his stick in another guy's face, it's high sticking; it doesn't matter whether the guy was injured or not and it doesn't matter whether the player intended to or not. And I don't think, if it's not unreasonable to expect players to keep control of their sticks at all times, it's not unreasonable to expect players to keep from grabbing an opponent's head and shoving it into the glass.

Obviously I still have a lot of opinions about this despite ranting (with a lot more swearing) to the BF last night for ten minutes.
