The New York Times published Amanda Hess’s 'When Fan Fiction and Reality Collide,' about “FANtasies,” a new anthology web series where fan fiction about internet stars is “brought to life.” As someone who writes YouTuber rpf/rps, I am… really uneasy about this.

For Comicsverse, Colleen Etman compiled A History of Slashfiction.

From Ed Mazza in Huffington Post: Creationist Fan Fiction Features Noah Fighting Giants And Dinosaurs.

Supernatural, One Direction, lots of Harry Potter, Phil Collins, JRRT )

For USA Today, Christian Schneider wrote It's not as if gerrymandering is a new practice; according to some accounts, it predated even the American Revolution. Partisan apportionment was known to the nation's founding fathers — it is rumored that Patrick Henry actually attempted, unsuccessfully, to gerrymander James Madison out of the First Congress. (Which, in my fan fiction describing the event, ended with an old-style caning to settle the dispute.)

Los Angeles Times’s Yvonne Villarreal wrote In our own [This Is Us] fan fiction, we imagine [Ron] Howard enlisting Kevin as a last-minute addition to the Han Solo production. Hartley, though, is just crossing his fingers that more Howard cameos are in his future.

From Nuria Perea on BuzzFeed News: How Indie Movies And Fanfic Helped Me Learn How To Be A Lesbian.

Finally, in a review of an art exhibition, The Boston Globe’s Cate McQuaid wrote Yuan Runhe’s wily painted fan, “A Surface of Obtained Flaws,” depicts an envelope and a thank-you note, which says that, in gratitude, the writer is sending a painting of a fan. Is it the object itself? Perhaps, but Yuan also paints a piece of a painting of a fan. Call it fan fiction.

I can't believe it's taken the show more than fifty years to use that title. Teaspoon has ... okay, only four fics using it. That's less than I expected.

[community profile] rarepairfest letter for [archiveofourown.org profile] laylah!

My theme for so much of this exchange is "oh my god I just wish this existed why isn't it out there???" so I would really be just delighted to see what you come up with for all these tiny underloved pairings. Thank you so much for offering one of them, by the way. Please treat my prompts as suggestions, not as requirements; if there's a story you're dying to tell about one of these pairings, I will read anything that skips my DNWs, so go for it.

General Yes Please: porn & kink (see my smutswap letter for more on my preferences there), adventures, fight scenes, monsters, fluff, playing with game mechanics, worldbuilding, nerding out about robots/demons/other sapient nonhuman perspectives.

General Not For Me Thanks: mundane AUs (high school, coffee shop, etc.), deathfic, kidfic, misunderstanding angst, hopeless endings, abusive relationships, bigotry or oppression as a major plot point, bigotry or oppression written into a setting where they haven't been shown to exist in canon, scat/vomit, infantilization, forced feminization.

Beneath the cut: the first line of every unfinished piece of fic in my drive dating back a year or less -- minus the ones that are pieces of anon exchange submissions currently in progress.

Maybe I can convince myself to go back and make more progress on some of these for [community profile] seasonofkink or something. I must have some squares that would fit some of these stories. Or [community profile] iddyiddybangbang!

this is a lot of unfinished fic, jeez )

You can totally watch my fandom spread shifting over time there. Some of these are probably abandoned for one reason or another (I still love the concept of troll Hisoka so much, but I don't have an actual idea for a plot) but hopefully I'll get some of them to see the light of day. :B

OH GOD I ACTUALLY FINISHED SLAVEFIC #5

It is a smidge over 49k and, uh, it is going to hurt. A lot.

…I was traveling to visit family last Sunday and sort of forgot that Sunday was happening in the haze of spending several hours with my parents and then several hours discussing my parents with my brothers. Oops?

But now I am home again! And writing things! And talking about them on Tumblr!

WIPs currently active: 5, because I finished Little Bitty #2!!

Words written this week fortnight: 12,611, which was one really good week and one kinda meh week, so it balances out. :D

WIPs that got no words this week: 3 - broken dick epic, Born in the Blood, sequel to “Ring the Bell Backward”. Which is what happens when I frantically attempt to FINISH THINGS that are either v. close to finishing or HAVE ACTUAL DEADLINES OH GOD.

WIPs that did get words this week:

Little Bitty #2 (Jemmie): 1,628 and DONE!!! at just over 10k. And… will… definitely get betaed and posted! Someday! When I find a minute in between ALL THE OTHER THINGS.

Slavefic #5 (THE DRAMATIC REUNION): 7,344, and I am in the middle of the FINAL CHAPTER OH MAN I AM SO CLOSE TO FINISHING!!!! Also it’s just over 46k, so apparently it’s not, uh, going to be appreciably shorter than Sink Right to the Floor, which for a while I had thought it would be. Ahahaha why would anything ever be short, why would I even dream of that. /o\

Dragon!Bucky/Tribute!Steve Cap Reverse Big Bang Story: 3,639, and getting! really! close! to being! done! which is good because I post in less than two weeks!! :DDD:

Instinct Magazine carried Sam Claflin On Finding The Right Gay Role & 'Hunger Games' Gay Fan Fiction.

There was plenty of fanfic talk in Kaitlyn Tiffany’s THE FOUNDER OF PINBOARD ON WHY UNDERSTANDING FANDOM IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS for The Verge.

GQ’s Jay Willis wrote that, following James Comey’s recent testimony, The left began writing its impeachment fanfiction at a more furious rate than ever.

Theater in Ferndale, American Horror Story, Harry Potter, Jane Austen, more Harry Potter, Markov Chains, Wentworth, British politics, The Mummy, Arms, Marie Antoinette )

A Margaret Smith piece in Wicked Local Chelmsford about encounters with Adam West mentioned Batman fanfic.

Andy Greene described Nirvana’s “Floyd the Barber” as essentially an ultra-violent piece of Andy Griffith fan fiction for Rolling Stone.

In ‘The Refreshing Queer Sensibility of American Gods’ for The Atlantic, Manuel Betancourt wrote [showrunner Bryan] Fuller’s trademark style enwrapped NBC’s horror-thriller drama Hannibal, where he turned a notorious cannibal and his FBI profiler into a homoerotic pairing that inspired a fan-fiction genre called Hannigram.

For America Magazine, Rob Weinert-Kendt wrote that Lucas Hnath’s "A Doll’s House, Part 2,” may come off a bit like fan fiction as written by Tom Stoppard.

You won’t believe what kids are writing about celebs, book characters and other pop culture stars (Caroline Knorr, republished on Salon).

Finally, in ‘How Women Are Changing Geek Culture,’ republished on Forbes, Cecilia Tan, in answering ‘What kinds of roles do women play, in nerd culture in 2017?,’ wrote: People put their energies where they get the best encouragement and positive feedback. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why the fandom and nerd culture arenas where women don't just participate but dominate tend to be non-commercial: fan fiction, fan art, cosplay, book blogging and book-tubing. But there are also women making video games, creating comics, hitting the bestseller lists, and winning Hugo and Nebula Awards. There's no space or role that I see in nerd culture that is exclusively a male domain.

Vidding TV shows is so much work. I was cutting this one until about two hours before the deadline, exacerbated by the fact that the Blu-Ray of the last volume came out literally the day before the deadline. I initially used a low quality rip of the creditless ending and was resigned to a different version online than on the con DVD, but then due to some serendipitous technical difficulties, resolved at length by the very patient and excellent con staff, I actually was able to get a file with a high quality rip of the ending into the con--of course it came out less than 24 hours after said deadline. (If I ever get access to Blu-Ray rips, I may remaster it, just because they changed so much for the disc releases.)

As for the vid itself…I had this song in mind since about January. Yuuri and Victor love each other a lot, okay, and they meet each other in the middle, eventually, every time.

Hello friends!! As promised, this is my update on my fic-writing/fic ideas/shit I've written but need to edit for posting post. \o/ I'm gonna sort by fandom bc that seems easiest-- I've got a couple of fandoms for which I have multiple things on the docket and then a bunch of miscellaneous shit, ha, so I'll sort accordingly, then also mention the stuff I have done that needs editing! I'll also mention some stuff I've sort of considered posting to a Trash Account but am now thinking I might just set up to a different pseud, under the umbrella of "stuff that's super out of date/long since jossed but that I still like and want to share"?? THOUGHTS ARE WELCOME. ♥

(Not included here: my fics based on random solicitation for sex pollen prompts, including currently-in-progress Leo/Frank/Hazel from Heroes of Olympus and Colin/Phillip from the Bridgerton books [SOB] and on-the-docket Jake/Amy/Rose from B99, Napoleon/Ilya from The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and Kell/Lila/Rhy/Alucard from the Shades of Magic trilogy. >_>)

I watched last week's episode at Continuum, while hiding from people in the committee room, and made a terrible discovery: iView streaming quality is much, much better over 4G on an iPad than over the NBN on a new desktop.

Guys.

That was pretty much the highlight of Gatiss's episode, so let's move on to the triumphant return of Rona Munro.

It's been a while since I've written one of these!! So I have a fair amount of TV to catch up on. :'D

American Gods
I'm still not caught up with show (I'm on ep 5 right now!), but I'm really... excited/confused as to what the other three will include?? :'D Since I feel like the show has... pretty much covered everything up until the House on the Rock (which I think is where they've said S1 is ending?), so ???? WHAT'S NEXT. The Laura episode definitely didn't super resonate with me (I don't tend to like cold, overly-logical characters to begin with, and turning Laura into that type for like... no real reason doesn't sit well with me at all), and the fifth episode was... also weird?? Like, fun, but weird??? As I said the other day on Twitter, I think I like the details of the show more than I like the overall structure and plot?? But again, I think I'll need to see the full arc before I decide this for sure. Sigh!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
AAAAAHHHHHH THAT FINALE !!!! I can't believe how this show likes to escalate, lmao-- from going undercover to losing a captain to witness protection to GOING TO GODDAMN PRISON, FUCK!!!! But it all comes back to the squad being a family and all of their relationships (esp Jake&Rosa and Rosa&Holt !!!) are so so good, and I can't WAIT to see how they work to get Jake and Rosa out of this, aaaaahhhhhh. (Sidebar: Gina and Charles's cousin are super goddamn cute. :'D)

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
I can't believe I'm almost done with the second season now!!! I only have a few more episodes left!!! I'M GONNA MISS SHOW (until it comes back for S3 !!!). I'm waiting impatiently for how badly Josh/Rebecca is gonna crash and burn this time around; I'm SO glad Rebecca and Paula made up (and that Rebecca is being better!!); I LOVE Rebecca/Heather/Valencia (and ship it so hard tbh); and I just met Nathaniel and I am so excited for him too. :'DDD WHAT A FUN AND WEIRD AND DELIGHTFUL SHOW.

Happy Endings
I don't have too much to say about this one-- I'm about halfway into S2 and it's still really fun and enjoyable. :") I think Brad is my fave thus far?? But all of them are fun and I do a literal lol at least once per episode and I'm having fun with it!!

Master of None
THIS SHOW, ON THE OTHER HAND, I HAVE SO MUCH TO SAY ABOUT!!! I just rewatched S1 (like, RIGHT before the S2 release date dropped, lmao, I am a god) and it reminded me again of how much I liked the entire arc up until the last episode?? It's such a good and fun and smart and snappy and relatable and surprisingly realistic show-- it makes such good points that never feel preachy and has such great dialogue that never feels fake. And then the last episode just sort of drops that gross message of "oh ur not really living unless u drop everything and go do something ~crazy and impulsive!!!", totally ignoring the fact that you can only do shit like that if you have enough money/security to float yourself both in a foreign country and when you come back home. SIGH. It's just a gross overlooking of financial privilege for a show so good at discussing other forms of privilege and it makes me mad!!

So I moved on to S2 while Boyfriend was here and, again, mostly really enjoyed the first eight episodes! (Especially the first dates and the Thanksgiving one. DENISE IS SO GOOD.) And then... ughhhhhhhh. Just, ughhhhhhhhhhh. What an awful, awful storyline, start to finish. A plot that hinges on the impossibility of (straight) men and women just being friends, a vacation fling being touted as a be-all end-all love story, a single man who repeatedly encourages a woman to cheat on her fiance and gets mad when she's conflicted about her choices, an engaged woman who's horrible at setting boundaries with her single male friend and instead encourages really inappropriate intimacies.... UGHHHHHHHH. I was just so angry and disappointed and felt so gross and bad about the whole thing. I hope there's a long time till S3 because I CANNOT deal with more disappointment over a season finale of this show anytime soon. :/

I love robots tho

Started playing Nier: Automata over the weekend and got the A ending last night. I'm super hype to start up again and go for the rest of the story, since it looks like a lot of the content is beyond the A ending. This game is so beautiful, both visually and aurally, and I'm grooving on the themes so hard.

And there was this one sidequest with an android scientist called Jackass, who wanted to collect combat data from watching us fight, and her dialogue after those fights was...well:
I needed to write it down )
SO THAT HAPPENED. talk about ficbait.

I love every robot in this bar.

“The coalescence of femslash as a metafandom unto itself may have paradoxically contributed to a bird's-eye view of its marginality. As we might glean from the primacy of slash as the unmarked term (denoting same-sex couples in general and male-male couples in particular), F/F remains underrepresented not only in scholarly research but also arguably in fandom overall (compared to M/M and also to het [heterosexual] and gen [nonsexual] fiction and art).

Femslash fans often frame their experience in this way, as was the case at the "Where's the F/F?" panel at the May 2015 WisCon feminist science fiction convention in Madison, Wisconsin. The conversation took as a jumping-off point detailed statistics, compiled by destinationtoast, on fan fiction posted at Archive of Our Own.”
