Someone's making a documentary movie out of the whole whitewashing Avatar the last airbender controversies. Which, to me, looks like an awesome idea:

A rather academic and well written essay on Avatar the Last Airbender, and the white washing occuring in the movie adaptation: http://community.livejournal.com/racebending/61396.html?view=1733844#t1733844

I love my flist for it already said everything I might want to say about the first solid news we get on the cast of the Avatar live action movie : here, and here, and here, and god why here.

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.

So, yes, I did end up sleeping away a big half of my afternoon :)

Anyway today I found something that made me happy, this vid:

1. A quizz


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 [livejournal.com profile] a_white_rain ♥ and now to [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] 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)
It also makes me want to start writing again and maybe finish all those WIPs *sighs*


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 [livejournal.com profile] 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 :)

1. Fic posted over at my fic journal

Title: Psyche's Contemplation
Fandom: Avatar
Characters/Pairings: mild Azula/Zuko
Lenght: 510 words
Summary: When she had been a little girl, she had used to dream of what having the perfect big brother would be.

( Fake cut to fic )


2. There's a Vorkosigan fic over at [livejournal.com profile] lmb_challenge by [livejournal.com profile] katealaurel which depicts a missing scene of A Civil Campaign. It's got limericks. Read it. (Especially you, [livejournal.com profile] busaikko ^^)

Wretched Matter


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 ^_^

I've written this little avatar fic, kinda Zucesty, just over 500 words. Would anyone be willing to beta it?

Found one.

I've posted a DVD commentary of Weaknesses at [livejournal.com profile] solesakuma's request.


[CENSURED]'s ASOIAF gen ficlet exchange reveals!

The delightful fic written for me was Lives unlived by [livejournal.com profile] 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:
Useful
Brienne, OC
For [livejournal.com profile] 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)
Cersei
"She was beautiful, they say, as beautiful as she was wicked."
salinea: (Default)
Did a Tokyo Babylon drabble for [livejournal.com profile] sakanagi
Winter
Subaru
100 words

and I wrote a first Avatar fanfic. And it's all about Ozai, of all people, and about his relationship with his family (seriously, what is wrong with me?)
Weaknesses
Ozai (Azulon, Ursa, Iroh, Zuko, Azula)
5x100 words
salinea: fem!Loki is snerking (lol)
Yeah so I'm deeply obsessed with Avatar. Sadly from what I've seen so far, the fandom appears to be totally nuts. Shipping wars galore, and bashing, and CAPSLOCK humour (capslock humour is indeed funny... for all of 10 minutes. Okay, the Atla capslock community still appears to be best things for discussions on Atla) and I won't mentionned the jokes based on BUTTRAPED LOLZ. And finding good fics has been difficult (but not entirely impossible). Thankfully there are a few sane people here and now (and I started friending those people. Hi!)

Finished watching what we got of Avatar S3 yesterday ^_^

more babble )

So, when's the next episode? #^_^# *is totally addicted*

Oh, and I take recs. Icons, fics, essays... I take everything you'll throw at me!
salinea: (Default)
So, three days ago I caved in, after seeing various references to that American cartoon thingie, I thought, okay, let's try it, let me download that Avatar stuff. Surely, it can't be that good? Ooops... actually it was. I started thinking, hey, this is kinda cute, and then went to hey! this is freaking awesome! in a matter of hours.

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. >:(
