YES. YES. YES YES YES. YES.



OKAY OKAY SO turns out they were shooting The Avengers in Central Park today, but I SO didn't think the actual actors would be there since they shot so much stuff in Cleveland and they, like, made it up to look like NYC; I thought it'd just be exteriors or stunt stuff or whatever. But I made plans to stop by there anyway, and when I was out doing errands (I was actually in a Macy's dressing room at the time buying a dress for my aunt's wedding) when I saw a tweet saying that EVERYONE was there and I was like WHOOOOOOOOA WHAT?! so I sprinted out of there and got on the B and ran uptown and tore all over Central Park like a crazy person until I found them at Bethesda Terrace, because everything ever ever ever is shot there. So I took a few pics and then my batteries DIED, of course, and they started setting up for another shot and I went FUCK YOU ALL I AM DETERMINED and stomped (well, flip-flopped) off to the nearest Duane Reade, which was at SEVENTY-SEVENTH AND LEX (that's far) and went allllll the way back because I'm a moron and will not be denied.

So then I went to the barrier and stood next to the lovely lostarkeo and--this is truly the best thing ever--we started chatting and I mentioned "Hiddles," and she sort of side-eyed me and went "...this is a weird question, but are you--do you have a Tumblr?" and I gaped at her and cried "ARE YOU A HIDDLESTONER?!" and we just fell over laughing because HOW MAGICAL IS THAT. I LOVE IT WHEN FANDOM IS, LIKE, REAL LIFE. ♥ STALKING BUDDIES 4 LIFE

ANYWAY. MOAR PICS!


Tony's car; uncovered later.


Jeremy Renner (guys behind us: "Oh yeah, the guy from The Hurt Locker? The bomb guy?" Me: "The OSCAR NOMINEE, YES." lostarkeo, angrily: "TWO-TIME Oscar nominee!" Me: "I know, right?!?" He said hi to her later! It was awesome! DEAR GOD, HIS ARMS. HIS BODY. HIS EXISTENCE. :9 :9) Also JOSS WHEDON!! FAVORITE LIFE-RUINER OF THEM ALL!


Renner, ScarJo with the red hair, Hiddles (I kept gasping "he's RIGHT THERE. RIGHT. THERE." Well, I only just started loving him!! This is overwhelming) and Hemsworth


Hemsworth, Joss in the hat, Mark Ruffalo in the yellow, RDJ (!!!!!!!), Chris Evans and Hiddles. ♥


He's just so chatty and friendly; it's too cute. In this scene, they all stood in a circle and they turned on the wind machine and Joss yelled "AAAAND...DISAPPEAR!" and they all looked up, and lostarkeo awesomely pointed out that it's obvs the Bifrost! So maybe Loki's on good terms with them by the end...? Aww.


Later scene with Tony, Bruce and Steve getting in Tony's car, etc.


For the record, Joss is totally on the Clint Eastwood side of the spectrum; he does, like, three quick takes per scene and that's it. Which I like. Better than Marc Webb and his Kubrick-like insanity where he made Emma Stone slap Garf all the goddamn day. Hee.

ANYWAY, after four hours a little while Hiddles was done and he was hanging around talking to people and hugged everyone. EVERY. ONE. I swear he hugged at least eight or nine crew members while I was watching. Big bear hugs, too. He's so warm and lovely and I--adjasklfnak;l. And there was also this mom with her adorable little kid in full Marvel-nerd regalia, including a cute little Cap shield, and SOMEHOW, I didn't see how, she went over to Hiddles and next thing I knew he was LIFTING HIM ONTO HIS SHOULDERS FOR A PIC. She told me he offered. ♥________________♥ PERFECTION

And then finally he started to leave and he was walking along the sidewalk opposite me--well, here's the layout:


See the pole in the middle? The tree to its left, on the other side of the street; I was standing over there-ish. And Hiddles was walking (in full costume, hair and makeup, mind) to his trailer, presumably, kinda roughly where the girl in the orange dress is, and I knew I was about to miss my window and I went "OH FUCK IT" and just ran across the street, and all these paparazzi were jumping in front of him and I just stood on the side of that low wooden barrier and squeaked out "Hey, Tom--hi! Tom, hi!" [Thank the Lawd I didn't say "Hiddles."] And he smiled and I said "Hi, could I please get a picture with you? Is that OK?" because he clearly had somewhere to be, but he went "aw, sure" and leaned in close (eeeeeeeeee) and I took it, but the flash was off and I was like "...did I get it??" and I checked, and he waited and I went "oh, yeah, great!" and he's like "OK, good!" and I said "Thank you so much! You're my favorite. Like, HANDS DOWN." And he laughed and said, "well, thank you, dear" and walked away and I ran back across the street and screeched "HUG ME" at poor lostarkeo (that's her in the black shirt!) and all these people were like OMG WHAT WAS THAT WHO WHAT and I was showing it off and bragging and I showed the mom with the cute kid and she was like "oh, congratulations!" and it was JUST SO AWESOME. SKDNSLKFNAFA;NA he is so very tall and his eyes are beautiful and I JUST CANNOT

...and I did a guess who post @ ONTD, and then realized that pattieisntcrazy had just done an infinitely superior post with way better-quality photos and more encounters, BUT I was totes there to see Hiddles because he is my fave and I REGRET NOTHING. (And they're allegedly at Grand Central tomorrow...! We'll see!) And OH MY GOD, TUMBLR. O_____________o Hiddlestoners do not fuck around. Sweet Jesus.

...I had off from work today, btw. I feel like I should clarify that. Oh, and I bought a dress and I think it's kinda cute, maybe; might post pics later, and I saw The Debt after I left Central Park and it was actually pretty awesome; better than I thought it'd be. I think I'm seeing Our Idiot Brother tomorrow. And I saw DH Part 2 for my third and final time and had lots of creys & feelings; post about that later too. EEEEEEEEEEEE ♥~

I AM SO JEALOUS BUT ALSO SO HAPPY FOR YOU, AWWW. ♥ He's always seemed like such a sweet guy, especially to fans, and now you're proof of it! I'm glad you had a good experience out there! And it's interesting to hear all the tales of set. And I love meeting other Tumblr users, haha.

If I randomly took the bus up to New York tomorrow, would you house me AND THEN I CAN MEET HIM TOO? lol totally joking unless you would. But I am planning on doing a weekend trip up to New York sometime this semester and we should totally meet up and hang out! :D

(Goddamn, I need another icon. I think I'm gonna do an Unrelated/Archipelago set after all.) EEEE THANK YOU YES AAUGH I kept hearing wonderful things and I was like I AM NOT LEAVING UNTIL THEY ACTUALLY SHOOT ME because the security people were getting annoyed and kept making us move, so I just danced around and kept hovering and--well. I am determined.

Shit, man, why not?! I dunno what's happening with the shoot, precisely, but either way you should def. come here & hit me up. ;) There might be an NYC trailer for War Horse, if we're quite lucky...!

OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. HE IS SOOO DAMN CLOSE.

JEALOUS BUT SOOO EXCITED/HAPPY FOR YOU.

HE IS. AAUGH. HE JUST LEANED ALL IT AND I WAS LIKE SHAKING AND TRYING TO HOLD THE CAMERA STEADY AND IDEK ANYMORE


I'M FLAILING ALL UP IN THIS POST NOW TOO!

That pic makes me smiley, I'm so so happy you got to meet him!

I can't believe how well it turned out! That's...not the best angle on me and I wish I'd taken my ponytail out, but LOOK AT HIS FACE. I JUST. HE'S--I CAN'T EVEN

*DED*

IKR IKR IN PERSON RENNER IS JUST RIDICULOUS; HE HAS SO MUCH SWAG

THAT IS FABULOUS WHY DON'T I LIVE IN NYC SHIT IS ALWAYS GOING DOWN THERE

OMG YOU TOTALLY SHOULD IT IS SUPER-FUN HERE \o/

OH MY FUCKING GOD WHAT IS YOUR LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIFE?!?!?!!??!?!?!??

I DON'T KNOW I DON'T KNOW I TRULY DON'T

BUT SOMETIMES IT IS AWESOME

OMG, I hate you so much! (It's not envy, of course he he)

You've been so lucky! I'd have had my heart divided between Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Hiddleston, lol.

Glad you could take a picture with him ^^

I do love RDJ, totes, but I would've been more scared to go up to him, tbh. He might totally diss me, whereas I've heard that Hiddles is super-sweet with fans and stuff, and he is my fave and I took a shot. :D I love Renner nearly as much as I love him and I was wigging about him too, but if I could only get one pic, I'm glad it was him! :D ♥

ahaaaah, i was scrolling through my f-list and was like, "hey, that looks like loki! ...WAIT A MINUTE--"

you win. xD

I just posted my (short) Debt review...I can't wait to read yours! I am in LOVE with this film.

I expected to kinda-sorta enjoy it in a casual sort of way, but it really was rather a lot better than that. Jessica is so awesome. ♥

EEEEE *CLAPS* AS EVER I WAS QUITE LOOKIN' FORWARD TO YOUR COMMENT BB

DO YOU THINK I SHOULD'VE ASKED RDJ AND CHRIS ON THEIR FEELINGS ABOUT CAP/IRON MAN

I think I should've. Darn.

YOU REMAIN MY STALKING QUEEN.

AHAHAHAH YEEEES. \o/ I would have to sit down and crunch the numbers to be sure, but this might be the fastest I've ever gone from discovering to fangirling to meeting. I mean, I didn't even know who this fabulous bitch was before...let's see, 6 May. <4 months! A YEAH-YEAH!

[tomorrow could possibly be another epic one...but not if the weather remains this bad, probably. we shall see. :D]

Edited at 2011-09-07 12:27 am (UTC)

OMG YOU MET TOM HIDDLESTON! WHAT IS THIS? I'M DYING. NO FAIR.

No. But really. I'm happy for you. (Jealous) but happy. That's so cool!

LOL. I didn't even see Robert, Mark, and Chris in that one pic. I got distracted by the FedEx guy just right there and was like "LOL, WHY DID YOU TAKE A PIC OF THE FEDEX GUY?" -- But yeah, no. If I were that close to Robert, Mark, and Chris I would not control myself and probably run on set. BUT OHMYLANTA. JEREMY RENNER. *HAS HEART ATTACK* -- I mean... I'm not... a fangirl or anything...

I DID I DID IDEK HOW IT HAPPENED BUT IT WAS MARVELOUS ♥

LOL, uh, yeah, I need to upgrade my camera. Like, for realsies this time. Most of these are pretty bad, I admit it, and that's with me cropping and cleaning them up. :P But hey, at least it was sunny and I had a decent angle! :D And believe me, it was hard--they kept trying to make us move and I was like UM YEAH THAT'S NOT HAPPENING; LOOK AT ALL THIS AMAZINGNESS IN ONE PLACE. It was magical. Jeremy is just...aaaugh, beyond description. My new fangirl friend seriously freaked the shit out when he walked by us and said hi to her. :D It was epic.

That's so great! I'm so happy for you!

It's a great photo and he seems to be such anice guy, being attentive to his fans and everything. Wow! He looks a bit cut up there, poor Loki.^^

Thank you!! :D He really is incredibly sweet; every single thing I've heard from every fan has been positive & adorable. He does, though! I bet it was Tony. That guy's such a jerk sometimes. I'll have words with him.

Okay, after the epic Hiddles post over in zombres journal I had to kind of come to your journal and read this because OMG. I'm only slightly jealous, promise. ;) That is so AWESOME. What a nice guy!

Would you mind if I added you as a friend? :)

Ahhh, thank you! :D He truly was amazingly delightful and now I shall adore him forevermore. ♥ Sure, add away!

This whole post is completely glorious. I love that you got a pic with Hiddles in full Loki garb! OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!

Right???? :DDDDD Ahh, that was a good day. And it turned out that it was his very last day of filming, so meeting me was like THE VERY LAST THING HE DID ONSET. Which is clearly magical.

OH MY GOD this is a beautiful story and I swear I am being completely sincere when I say that! Because I would not have had the balls to run across the street and talk to him, and I would have kicked myself forever, but you did it and you've got the most amazing souvenir that you can treasure forever and that must be the most amazing feeling in the world! Bet that made the running all over looking for camera batteries worth it!!

:DDDDDDD Thank you! Normally I try to be, like, sane and polite or whatever, but in this case I realized I had like a two-second window and I just ran over like a lunatic and he was so nice about it--good grief, I'm grinning like crazy just remembering it. It was a magical day. And it was the last scene he shot, apparently, so he capped off the experience well! Thanks for the comment; I will never get tired of telling this story. XD
