to everyone in fandom who is "relieved" or "happy" about these developments: i hope all your favorite all-mighty cocks get killed off.
zarabithia: (young avengers kick ass team)
So in a week in which DC gave me Jason Todd as a priest :) Marvel decided to spring this Young Avengers related news:

Spoilers For The End of Avengers: Children's Crusade )

And that concludes the spoiler.

Since we are preparing for the sky to fall (again) here on LJ, it seems like a good time to mention that I can be found at [personal profile] pfg @ Dreamwidth. Most of my stuff gets crossposted to DW as well as LJ. The only thing that doesn't is polls. I'm not leaving LJ until the Kremlin officially wins, but if you do and want to keep track of me, feel free to add me there.

If you want to move to DW and need invites, I have a few, so feel free to ask.

Also, it seems like a good time to mention that I can be found @ aliceranaway on Tumblr. Tumblr is a completely random place where I reblog pretty art a lot, quote kickass people, fail at completing memes, bitch a lot about stupid people, and have conversations about fanfic with [livejournal.com profile] 13_lucky_charms. Feel free to add there, too, if it so floats your boat.

Randomly, the person who got me for remix uploaded their fic already. That makes me feel like a slacker. :)

And I swear to Thor, the next post in this journal will have ficcish content.

Well, there goes my good mood for the day.

NYTimes, the bastion of quality reporting, reported on the gang-rape of an 11 year-old girl in Texas  that's led to charges against 18 high-school boys so far - all well and good so far, right?  Shit like this NEEDS publicity to raise awareness. 

Only problem is, they repeated - without refutation or critical commentary - the claims that the girl brought the rape on herself because of the way she was dressed.

Choice Quotes:

“It’s just destroyed our community,” said Sheila Harrison, 48, a hospital worker who says she knows several of the defendants. “These boys have to live with this the rest of their lives.  As opposed to the victim, who's gonna bounce back lickety-fucking-split, right?

Residents in the neighborhood where the abandoned trailer stands — known as the Quarters — said the victim had been visiting various friends there for months. They said she dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s. She would hang out with teenage boys at a playground, some said.  TOTALLY BEGGING FOR IT.


Now, what's being said and done in this community is bad enough, but the NY Times should be fucking ashamed of themselves right now.

Here's how to contact NYT: )

Thing that annoys me, part I: ear infections are the stuff of evil. Especially when antibiotics aren't actually doing anything. I would like to be able to hear again, world. Someday soon.

Thing that annoys me, part II: queer fail? Surely, you are kidding! )

Speaking of things that annoy! [livejournal.com profile] fannish5 from Friday: Five Worst Retcons:

Is it bad that I had trouble narrowing it down? )

This ... is a terribly negative post I blame the fluid in my ear. Have 5 of my favorite retcons to make up for it:

My Unpopular Opinions, Let Me Show You Them )
zarabithia: (roy solo  with grin)

Am in the middle of trying to make a White Collar fic work, and watching Rizzoli & Isles, because who doesn't love a little femslash to start their week.

But I offer this, to make anyone who has read Rise of Arsenal weep:

A solitary scan of Roy, from a writer who could actually write )

So much character development, so little time to destroy it. :(
zarabithia: (it's hard being nice)

What the hell is wrong with fandom lately? Seriously? Did it get so wrapped up in bingo season that it decided to host a spontaneous asshole bingo?

In which I am, yes, humorless )

So I continue my ongoing battle to get caught up on my comic book backpile.

I find it amusing, if not surprising, that this batch is entirely Marvel. Less Dead Cats that way.

My thoughts! Because everyone needs my thoughts on comics. Clearly.

Comic That I Adored: Black Widow 1/2/3

Spoilers, of course )

Comic That Was Crap: Young Allies 1:

More Spoilers )

Are You Expecting Spoilers Yet?  )

Comic That Celebrates Awesome Women Acting As Adults: Heralds 1/2/3

Spoilers Yet Again )

Comic Whose Name I Actually Don't Have a Problem With: Her-Oes.

I don't usually post RL stuff in this journal. Usually I just post completely ridiculous fic and indignant rage about assholes related to fannish endeavors. And I could do that this time around and just wank about what a ridiculous fail boat Gail Simone is, because yeah, she fails. But this is important, too. So I'll make an exception this time around and ignore Gail's privileged bullshit in favor of someone else.

Yeah, this whole post has to go behind a cut because there is not a solitary damn part of this post that isn't potentially triggery. And I don't mean triggery in the sense of "people can't fucking write Captain America's characterization to save their lives." I mean triggery as in real life people need to have their penises removed slowly with a rusty spoon for abusing children.

I don't really have words )

And if you'll excuse me, now I am going to go write some ridiculous kink_bingo to wash the rage away to the point where I can type something to these people beside "WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU!!!" OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

zarabithia: (pride: queer legs)
1.  So, the lgbtfest fic that I have been working on for three weeks has surpassed 7000 words. There is finally an end in sight, but it's still a terribly long fic that I'm not entirely sure works? I mean, it works in my head, and it works in my beta's head, but I'm not sure if it will connect in anyone else's mind (because my beta, of course, has been listening to me bitch about it for three weeks now.)

Part of the reason that I'm so nervous about it is because that it frankly says things about the biphobia and homophobia that have cropped up in unexpected places (namely, people and communities I read often) in the past month or so...and I don't feel badly about that, because that's part of the purpose of having a community like lgbtfest. But still.

Also, it's 7000 words of present tense. About a minor, rare-ish pairing. With lots of unhappy and miserable. So... lol, no one is going to read this fic. Which is okay! But amusing. Because this is the longest I have ever spent on any fic ever.

2.  A thing of note: I really like this blog post about Barbara Gordon & some of the ableism rhetoric that gets tossed around when discussing why it is "TERRIBLE" that she hasn't regained her ability to walk. There is, of course, major fail in the comments. Here's a clue: if you have to start your comment with "I don't want to sound like a major dick here, but I probably will," it's a safe bet you are a grade A dick.

3. Another thing of note: over on dreamwidth, they are having a Racebending Revenge Ficathon. Mission Statement: "Re-write one or more white characters in the fandom(s) of your choice as chromatic/non-white/PoC, in a story of at least 500 words, with some acknowledgment of how the racial difference would make a difference to the story being told."

4. Despite the fact that I have fics to write for people, fics to write for kink_bingo and am not quite finished with my lgbtfest fic of doom, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo. Because I have no concept of time management. Here's my card:

Choosing will be the difficult part )

If any of the prompts scream a particular pairing/threesome/moresome, feel free to offer a suggestion. I can't promise anything, but I might be able to work something in. :)
zarabithia: (roy: i still miss him)


I have been very behind lately! You may have noticed, as I haven't been commenting as much or replying to comments (I will get there, I promise! I have bookmarked A LOT of fic. *draws sparkly hearts around flist.*) And because I've been busy, I haven't been quite caught up with comics.

So today I decided to take a break from stuff and READ COMICS, because THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER. DO YOU HEAR THAT, DC? that's what geeks do.  

I was doing awesome! I got caught up on Captain America, which continues to be fantastic (mostly because Sam Wilson pwns everyone. Why doesn't Falcon have his own book? I would read that so MUCH.) I read the New Avengers Finale, which was awesome, aside from Luke Cage's completely ridiculous, rambly speech about how he wants to take a fucking walk. Dude, the Avengers don't need you to tell them why they are fighting. They've been in it just as long and longer than you. Really.

It was fantastic! I was happily sharing great Steve and Bucky are obviously having sex panels with [livejournal.com profile] cero_ate.

Oh, then. Then I went against my better judgment and read Rise of Arsenal 3.

RAGE. Also, Spoilers. But mostly, RAGE. )

zarabithia: (it's hard being nice)
So, I was going to make a ranty post about Titans 23, which is full of the kind of special fail that makes Cry For Justice look like a well written story. I might still do that later.

But then, in a fit of bad judgment, I checked my flist and saw this link to casting news on this community.

The post itself is fine, but several of the commenters are frankly worthy of a good punch to the face. Here, allow me to sum up why:

This is not a nice post )

TL: DR: Gosh, I can't imagine why I ever thought Cap/Iron Man fandom was full of misogyny.*sarcasm.*

TL;DR, II: Peggy Carter is AWESOME in her own right and taking her out of the movie still won't get Tony fucking Steve on screen, no matter how much you cry about it.

ETA: And since my point obviously wasn't clear; erasing a female character is always a misogynistic act. Always. It doesn't matter what bullshit reason you give, including that you think that Sharon/Peggy/Steve is icky. In fact, if you do think that it's icky and you want to erase a FEMALE CHARACTER (but certainly never punish Steve for being creepy), that is obviously misogyny.

Also, if you genuinely want to argue that advocating erasing a female character isn't misogyny, I will just end up banning you, because I can't see you as anything but a lousy human being. Which is your prerogative to be - in your own journal. But not in my virtual living room.
zarabithia: (AAAAAAAAAAAAH)
This has nothing to do with Women's History Month. On the contrary, the only woman in this story fails pretty hard. But so does nearly everyone else, so there's that.

Spoilers for Justice League Rise and Fall behind the cut, if you care.

Spoilers )
zarabithia: (faith)
Dear internet, my tolerance level is pretty low for people I would like to smack for their general asshole behavior.

Things I am trying to do:

1. Finish up the next section of "Partially into the Wind." Oh, Diana. You cannot be all over the world at once.
2. Write some drabbles for the meme.
3. Porn Battle
4. Review canon material for [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti auction story. It's MC2 Marvel + Rikki, and Rikki makes everything better.

But I keep getting distracted, because people on the internet keep making me want to smack them. With Thor's Hammer. In the kidneys.

Why? I'm so glad you asked.

Rage )

And possibly I am going to go take a nap so the urge to wank will go away and I can write fic where Diana and Steve don't shoot people for 1000 words.
zarabithia: (babs)
A. One one hand, I am excited that Birds of Prey is coming back. I wish it was being written by someone other than Gail Simone, but it could be a worse writer, I suppose.  Also, I generally hate Benes' art, but I approve of that cover. The cheesecake is kept to a minimum (still there, because he isn't capable of doing art where it isn't there) but look at the power, agency and confidence in Babs and Dinah's expressions and stances. I approve of that, even if I'm not quite sure what's going on with Babs' boobs.  I look at Barbara there and am very, very glad saner heads prevailed at DC and did not force her back into the Batgirl/Batwoman dead end.

B. You know you are doing a ficathon wrong when everything you start to request you go "...Or maybe I will write that, instead." That has been my sign-up process for [livejournal.com profile] merry_marvels which you should absolutely go sign up and request awesome things for. ;)

C. You should also go give [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti a browse. I'm not sure I'll be offering fic, because of time budget factors, but several awesome people are involved. Also, CNN has an Impact Your World site with ways you can help.

D. I did some flist clean-up. Nothing personal in most cases, just trying to budget time better.

E. This meme, which I am have done before and continue to love:

1. leave me a comment if you want to do the meme
2. I will reply with 6 of your icons and then you have to post this up and describe them!

a_trill gave me these )
zarabithia: (AAAAAAAAAAAAH)

Point 1: Dear Yuletide requesters, none of these fandoms are RARE: anything related to Batman, Angel, Buffy, STAR TREK REBOOT ARE YOU KIDDING ME, Iron Man comics. Also, whining that all the fic in a given fandom is "BAD" kind of makes you look like an asshole.


Point 2: Dear Dick and Clark muses, I already wrote you one lengthy serial fic. Why must you want a second one? Why can't you give me pretty little Dick/Clark ficlets instead?


Point 3: A Meme

I am working on pinch hits for [livejournal.com profile] heroines_fest and need distraction! Because distraction helps me write fic better. ;) Which means it's meme time:

Ask me a fandom or character, and I will tell you:

+ Runner-up
+ Honorable mention(s)
+ Crack pairing(s)
+ Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't

zarabithia: (trek: live long and fuck you)
This is somewhat belated news, however, I am just finding out now, so I am posting to express my utter and complete joy. Because in addition to porn, that's what my LJ is for.

So....apparently, Dwayne McDuffie was fired from JLA.

Cut Because I Am a Mean Bitch )
zarabithia: (Default)

Someday soon I will get back to posting DC fic! ;) In the meantime....

1.) Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me!"
2) I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3) You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
4) You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5) When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

*snip* for length )

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along.

*snip* for rambling )

zarabithia: (cry when I read Batman)
Thing that makes me laugh (in all its terrible grammar/spelling):

"Morrisson cant "do" Batman has a character. Morrisson's run on RIP Batman alienated a lot of Bat fans who didn't like the way morrisson wrote the character. Morrisson is good when it comes to "far ouT" characters like Superman and Doom Patrol but his writng for Batman was just plain wrong and whimsical. Morrisson cant do dark and gritty. Batman with a sense of humour?! I dont think so.

This new series will probably sell less than "RIP" did. Once bitten twice shy. Wake up DC."

No, Batman should never have a sense of humor! Ever! HE MUST ALWAYS BE DARK AND GRIM AND GRITTY. *headdesk* Oh, Frank Miller, look what you have caused!

In other news, I finally finished banners for the Dick/Roy Valentine's Day Fest. Masterlist is here. Thanks to everyone who participated, once again!

I made four different ones for you to choose from.  Hope one of them strikes your fancy.

Banners )
