I doubt anyone is following me *here* for Homestuck news, but just in case...

The Homestuck Ladyfest is closing for signups in about 6 hours, so act quickly if you want in!

Last year turned out amazing, guys. And this year has introduced even more lady characters to go around! (So many great ladies. So many great prompts.)

I have almost signed up for Yuletide several times now.

I'd ask someone here to remind me why overcommitting to holiday exchanges - especially when you volunteered to mod for one - is a bad idea, but you are all *dirty enablers*.

Arg.

Why is it that every time I check the pub date for the next Chris Moriarty book the answer is "6 months from now".

This is a terrible prank. Although I suppose I must, on reflection, respect the time commitment involved.

(No, no, I know how writing works, really. I just want to watch Li and Cohen fail at each other nigh completely in slow motion some more, plus spaceships. I am very specific to please.)

Amanda Waller PSA [16 Aug 2012|06:38pm]
[ mood | relieved ]

I am informed that the young, thin, afflicted with porn-face Waller currently running around the nu!DCU is not in fact the reimagined character I was assuming, but in fact her grand(?)daughter.

In which case, approx. half of my Amanda-Waller related anger dissipates. It is cool that she gets legacy status, even if 1. this has never worked well in the past and 2. following in her footsteps is not at all what Amanda would want for her children or theirs.

Still not going back though.

Who's doing Yuletide this year? [12 Nov 2011|03:21pm]
[ mood | conflicted ]

I can't decide if I am going to or not... I'm already signed up for one holiday timed challenge, and historically I've been barely able to handle *one*.

On the other hand, *Yuletide*.

*sighs*

re: Wonder Woman's new origin

The most amusing (read: "amusing") thing is that a couple years ago, I was discussing Wonder Woman with someone who offered that "Wonder Woman makes guys uncomfortable."

Me: What, cause she can beat them up?

Her: No, because no man was involved in her genesis. Simply by her *existence*, she's a threat to the assumption of male necessity.*

But of course, I did not take this theory very seriously!

People the joke is on: ME.

*English major. I am paraphrasing, but I got the impression she'd just finished an essay on the topic.

No, wait, there is a new WORST THING. [11 Oct 2011|02:06am]
[ mood | shocked ]

From here:

In DC COMICS-THE NEW 52, Wonder Woman will have a new origin, in which she is the daughter of Hippolyta... and Zeus! In recent interviews, writer Brian Azzarello and artist Cliff Chiang have teased that readers should expect the unexpected in this edgier, horror take on the superhero genre ­and the king of the gods will ensure that nothing goes as planned for his defiant daughter.

Originally created by the goddess Aphrodite and raised to perfection on the Amazon island of Themiscyra, the newest incarnation of Wonder Woman has a new costume and now a new origin ­but she remains Wonder Woman.


Yes that is what the Wonder Woman story was missing. A father figure with control issues.

I don't understand why everything is terrible for always.

HS Fanmix - Moirail: A Collection Of Counterpoints [24 Sep 2011|03:32pm]
[ mood | sick ]

I have spent the last couple days listening to nothing but earnest love songs. And now I am in pain and vomiting a bunch. A casual correlation? I like to believe so.

So anyway, I have a problem with completist tendencies! This one was a very different exercise than the black romances... the world isn't exactly running low on the other sort of love songs and, you know. Completist tendencies.

gfdi I can't deal with this shittery [14 Sep 2011|05:37pm]
Just now saw a picture of the rebooted Amanda Waller -- here's a link, which leads to a comic book rendering of a thin, young, conventionally attractive woman in a cleavage shirt and glossy red lipstick. Also she appears to be smiling somewhat vacantly.

Which would be fine, if it was ANYBODY BUT AMANDA WALLER WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK

FUCK THIS SHIT.

FUCK IT INTO DC COMICS’ FACE.

the tragic and surprising dearth of ladyslash! [11 Sep 2011|05:56pm]
[ mood | disappointed ]

Okay, I probably have enough Silly Questions on that last post to keep me occupied for a while, but I'm a little sad because - and I don't know if this is because I announced it would all be ladies? - no one's given me Silly Questions incorporating cracky random relationship/sexitimes assignments. And you all know how I feel about crack ships, right?

Anyway, just saying that if anyone wants to drop a couple more questions before I close them, feel free to use this knowledge as an... inspiration...

(ETA: Not to frown at anyone who has given me questions! I do appreciate it and love you totally!)

After consideration, I didn't sign up for we love the women that the fandom hates. I am not sure I can be trusted to provide new content for each day!

However, what I will do to honour the spirit of the fest is open myself up to Silly Questions again! With a catch... my entire list of characters will be female characters who I love and who I've heard at least one disparaging remark about.

Yay!

As always, the guidelines:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters fictional women who it is a tragedy they are not unanimously agreed to be awesome, and keep them to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask everyone to make up questions in the comments.

For example: "One forces Two and Seven to get married. Is it a happy marriage?"
"Five, Six and Twelve form a band! What do they call themselves? Are they any good?"
"Why *are* all the other numbers afraid of Seven?"


And last time's answers, so you know what you are encouraging.

Thinking of signing up to the we love the women that the fandom hates fest for, surprise of surprises, Kara Zor-El.

If I do, would there be anything you'd be interested in seeing/having me talk about?

Yay! I had some sustained internet access last night, so I could finally finally upload this! Of course now I am tired, but oh well. *Two* whole fannish accomplishments this month.

HERE IS YOUR DRABBLE, PETRA [22 Aug 2011|01:20am]
[ mood | silly ]

Found Where the Light Drowns
Fandom: DCU
Words: 1600
Characters: Tim Drake, Alfred
Notes: Petra made me take off my acknowledgements. But if you think you can guess the inspiration behind this story, you're probably right.

This is a weekly pilgrimage for Bruce, but as many times as Tim has accompanied him, Tim realizes that he can’t remember doing it in any season but winter. )

Cannot brain. Words just will not come out.

So. Since I've mostly finished the last one:

Give me a character(s)/pairing and a prompt, get one sentence of fic.

Nope, there is going to be no actual content on this blog. Ever again. :/
