Whoa. This took me so long to type I started yesterday and only finished today. Next time I'll try to do more reviews as I go >_>;
Anyway, I'm off to see the new BSG ep!
Is there some kind of rule that says liveaction fantasy must be pasty white regardless of the BLATANT pointers in the text/animated canon about the fact that characters are in fact of colour? It feels like the Earthsea adaptations all over again :(
And yeah, people's eagerness to downplay, justify or rationnalise away this shit is making me want to scream.
Who is your inner CLAMP character?
created with QuizFarm.com
|You scored as Seishirou|
You are like Seishirou Sakurazuka from Tokyo Babylon and X. Um... that's scary. People who do not know you very well may very well think that you are a kind and gentle soul - someone who loves animals and cares about the environment. But really, you probably couldn't care less. Your true nature is that you are a bit obsessive and antisocial. And maybe a bit of a stalker. And all of this would be a bad thing... if you weren't so damn cool.
*dies laughing* I didn't do it on purpose, I swear!!
I've been in a bit more of a CLAMP-reading mood lately. Partially thanks to a_white_rain ♥ and now to mithrigil whom I've just discovered is a terifyingly good writer. Kinda make me want to see what else I've missed. Also, while reading Hikago (went on an archive binge there... ^^;; it's a lovely fandom to do that with because there's a lot of reclists everywhere, something I'd really missed when I was just getting into Avatar.), I saw that ontogenesis also wrote a lot of Kurogane/Fai fics and I'm wondering if it's worth catching up with scanlations in order to read them (pro:I hate being spoiled and I like the pairing, con:I don't enjoy reading manga on a computer screen much)
2. I have not being good about reading Avatar fics, however :( and now I'm scared of spoilers and annoyed at the number of people who aren't careful about them. Hopely the rewatch is going to be fun; well I know it will be, it's Avatar ♥, but discussing it will be. Although it's already so much riddled with shipping wars I kinda want to scream and run away.
3. I've been thinking about femslash pairing since bitterfig asked me for my top five f/f couples; and you know, I had some, but I kinda feel like I don't have any big femslash OTP like I do with maleslash and het (and genderfucked); and I'd like to! I'd love for a femslash pairing to be my main interest in at least one fandom. The closest thing I have is Blackcest which is a whole category of its own being 'cestuous. Utena would be the closest other opportunity, but I don't really like Utena/Anthy, and I like Juri/Shiori more as part of a triangle. Then there's Kushiel's trilogy which has a lot of potential, but I just don't feel like looking up fics for that fandom.
So, I'm asking for recs from my flist :) Can you think of a fandom with a big f/f ship which I may love?
I'm pretty open about media, although I tend to prefer stuff that are read (books and graphic novels) slightly better than stuff that are watched (TV series, movies and anime) - err, no video game though; and my kinks go to antagonistic pairings, mindfuck, eros/thanatos, etc. I think I tend to prefer canon or heavily subtextual pairings to fanon ones, but I certainly have nothing against crackpairings and there's always exceptions! Otherwise, you know, SFF, symbolism and mythology rock my world :)
Title: Psyche's Contemplation

( Fake cut to fic )
2. There's a Vorkosigan fic over at lmb_challenge by katealaurel which depicts a missing scene of A Civil Campaign. It's got limericks. Read it. (Especially you, busaikko ^^)
3. As I said I need to update my writing filter. So if you want to read posts where I blabber about fics which i may never finish, with beta requests and other whining about difficulties with challenges and ficathon, comment and ask to be added. If you were already in the filter and do not wish to be there anymore, comment and ask to be removed ^_^
[CENSURED]'s ASOIAF gen ficlet exchange reveals!
The delightful fic written for me was Lives unlived by redcandle17, a mindblowing exploration of might-have-been for Jaime Lannister, even better than what I hoped when I made the request.
My own offer was:
For lodessa, to the request : How she got into knighthood in the first place.
Since we're talking ASOIAF, I don't think I ever linked to another ficlet of mine :
The Lady in the Tower (also posted here under flock, you need to join the comm to read)
"She was beautiful, they say, as beautiful as she was wicked."
( more rambling )
So I watched the 2 first seasons in those three days, and now my computer is trying to make me crazy by crashing anytime I actually click on the first file of the beginning of the s3. Bastard computer x_x;;
Anyway, I have the urge to babble. Bear with me :
( babbles )
So that was me gushing. Now, I'm going to rant at my computer a bit more. >:(
