May. 16th, 2017

I only had two drinks when I went out tonight, so I am going to be very peeved if I get sick tonight or have a hangover tomorrow.

I had a perfectly serviceable dinner, too.

I'm going out more and more lately. I don't have anyone to go with, which is kind of a bummer, but I get so antsy in the evenings. Maybe I'll see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 again in the next few days.

I took an Ativan to deal with an anxiety attack. It has sufficiently interfered with my motor functions for me to know I shouldn't take any more. It has also failed to quell my anxiety. Worst of both worlds is always fun when you take a drug.

All Systems Red, by Martha Wells

All Systems Red is a sci-fi novella by Martha Wells about a cyborg and a group of human scientists on a planetary mission that goes horribly wrong.

I actually discovered this via an anti-rec from [personal profile] sholio. (I say anti-rec, but she was very clear that others might like it.) The aspect she really hated could be a turn off to to others as well. It's not sexual violence, abuse, or anything similar, but it could be a turn off, even if I didn't mind. So, if you want know: The book sets up a found family dynamic, but subverts it in the last few pages, and makes it clear that the protagonist is better off on their own.

I myself like the book quite a bit, and I find that I'm thinking about it enough to give it its own post.

Queer Baiting and the Eye of the Beholder

It seems inevitable, that when a useful term enters fandom discourse, sooner or later, it will be stripped of almost all meaning. Manpain is used to mean, "a male character I don't like is showing an emotion." Fridging is any character death one doesn't like. Heteronormative is of course a word that goes well beyond fandom, and is vital to queer and women's studies, and sure some fans use it as actual critique. But others just use it to mean, "Ew, girl cooties." And so it is with queer baiting.

not_primetime letter

First of all, thank you, thank you, thank you. You are wonderful just for signing up.

Everything here is just a suggestion. Take what you want, or nothing at all, and leave the rest.

What do I like? I like romance, action, angst in moderation, humor, and stuff that doesn't quite fit into any one category. I like platonic love and romantic love. I read gen, maleslash, femslash, and het with equal fervor. I love fluff, but I also love explorations of complicated relationships. I love stories with explicit sex, stories with no sex, and everything in between. I also love stories with BDSM sex, but don't worry too much about that. I adore happy endings.

What don't I like? I'm not a big fan of character death and I'll admit to not liking tragic endings. However, I do understand that sometimes these things are called for, so don't feel limited.

Commentary: Godchild volume four

It's been literally five years since I last did one of these. The long delay is for a few reasons. Feeling like the fandom wasn't a place that was relevant to what I loved about the series, a fellow fan harassing me in a manner that looks incredibly tame in this post-Gamer-Gate world, but was very upsetting at the time, and, honestly, an unwillingness to reach volume six. Volume six causes me such pain that I may just have to skip it and go to volume seven. But here we are, with volume four. I lost the ability to be concise with this one, and probably spend too much time recapping, but it is what it is.


Links to previous commentaries:

Cain Saga Volume One
Cain Saga Volume Two (part one)
Cain Saga Volume Two (part two)
Cain Saga Volume Three
Cain Saga Volume Four
Cain Saga Volume Five
Godchild Volume One
Godchild Volume Two

As always, expect spoilers for the entire series. Also, too many ellipses.

Make Five Calls

Prior to the 2016 election, I was terribly nervous about calling my reps. Sometimes I wasn't sure who I should contact about which issue. Most of the time I was unsure of what to say.

5 Calls is a website that makes calling your reps simple and reduces the stress considerably. Put in your address and you'll get the names and contact info for your reps, a list of issues to call about, and scripts for what to say.

I made my five calls for the day, as well as a bonus sixth call to Rahm Emanuel's office, thanking him for pledging to keep Chicago a sanctuary city. (This new administration has me expressing gratitude to Rahm for god's sake. What is happening?)

Jan. 17th, 2017

[community profile] fandom_stocking went live a few days ago, and my stocking was filled with lovely things--fic, graphics, and recs. I encourage people to check out all the nice things people left me.

I never produce much for [community profile] fandom_stocking, certainly never as much as I want to. But I'll be posting what I did manage to create soon.

Four Ohtori Students Kyubey Never Made a Contract With and One He Nearly DidCollapse )

So, I'm rewatching Return of the Jedi (I've been doing a rewatch of the entire series, and now I'm nearing the end.) It's sad, with Carrie Fisher gone, but it's also kind of nice.

But what this post is really about is that I've hit the scene where Luke and company are captured by ewoks. The thing I never noticed is that Luke is grinning in this scene, and then he moves his hand over his mouth to cover it. Which leads me to believe that Luke thinks being captured by space teddy bears with spears is the funniest thing that's ever happened. He's been having a really stressful time, and this is great, because he could use a laugh.

And then I bet he's completely unsurprised that he and Han are being brought in to be roasted and eaten, while Leia has made friends and is a guest. I'll bet that on Luke's internal "friends most likely to be eaten by pissed off natives" list, Leia is at the very bottom. (Han is at the top. Honestly, Luke is surprised it hasn't happened already.)

Yuletide reveal

I've been going through a depressive cycle these past couple weeks, and Carrie Fisher's death really gutted me, which is to say that I didn't really gush over Yuletide this year. But that's not to say I didn't love the fic I received, and talking about it late is better than never.

Victory Station. Cain Saga and Godchild. "Investigating a familiar-sounding series of murders, Cain and Riff come to distant Victory Station, and find the situation is not quite what they expected."

Count Cain in space! Sexual tension! Cain being diabolically clever! This is a great fic, especially for anyone with my love of sci-fi AUs.

I get Count Cain fic a lot for Yuletide. I don't know quite how the matching manages that, but considering it's really the only way to get fic for the fandom that's both new and good (seriously, the quality of the fic I've received has been so high), I am delighted.

Meanwhile, I wrote Four Ohtori Students Kyubey Never Made a Contract With and One He Nearly Did, a Revolutionary Girl Utena/Puella Magi Madoka Magica crossover, which I'll be posting here soon.
