I hate everything

You know, I'm used to the general misogyny of Snapepologists, and even crap like whitesplaining how POC should feel about things (or how they actually feel, WOC can like Lily's character without projecting onto her), but JFC, can we at least all agree that Emmett Till did not deserve to be murdered for (possibly) wolf whistling at someone? Even if he was "popular and 'acting macho'"?

1. Oh fandom, can you stop punching me in the face for like two seconds? Jeez, I get it, this is not my safe space.

Related: you stay classy, Naruto fandom.

2. I have an FMA fic mostly-finished, but I think it'll need a beta; anyone want to look it over? It's maybe 1200 or 1300 words, nothing too bad.

3. More ridiculous Saiunkoku fluff! Though maybe I should write some less marriage-related ones next...

Title: The Beginning
Rating: G
Pairing: Shuurei/Jyuusan-hime
Etc: ~400 words, fluffy. Also I seem to be incapable of spelling Jyaasen Jyuusen Jyuusan-hime's name, so plz tell me if I have any typos.

Jyuusan-hime had received many marriage proposals. This one, however, was easily the strangest. )

Grabbed from [personal profile] canis_m here :) In no particular order...

100 amazing ladies! )

Heh, you can kind of tell where partway through I realized I was about to fill it up exclusively with anime/manga :) And now I realize I didn't even get to Harry Potter! Oh, and I forgot Xion! I just finished playing the new KH game and she may very well be my favorite character in the entire franchise ♥ And then there's all the Final Fantasy characters, and I don't think I even got to any books or any of the other Star Trek series, and... well, I think I could probably fill this list several times over :D Ladies!

ETA: Now with added fandoms! And wtf, how did I forget the character in my own icon? D: Yoruichi is one of my favorite characters in Bleach.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, there's a general rundown here, or check out some of the recent posts on [community profile] metafandom. This is a bunch of stuff, and I don't even know how to organize this in a reasonable way, so I'll just throw everything under random numbers.

Cut for tl;dr and general incoherence )

General thoughts

- To be honest, I can't really say I'm surprised that Bujold is racefailing it up. (With the usual "OMG WHY ARE YOU SO SENSITIVE" choral accompaniment.) And I say that as someone loves the Vorkosigan books, and even got a Yuletide story in that 'verse. I never loved Wrede nearly as much, but yeah, again, not surprised. Still doesn't make it any less hurtful to see, though :(

- Okay, I'm trying to figure out who to write my [community profile] femgenficathon fic about. Here's what I'm looking for:

1. A woman canonically in a position of authority
2. Who has a canonical friendship with another woman
3. And isn't evil

So far my list of women who qualify is:
- Yoruichi and Soi Fong.
- Possibly Janeway and Seven of Nine? It's been so long since I've seen Voyager, I can't remember much about their relationship.

:/

But I'm probably forgetting lots of women. (I certainly hope I'm forgetting lots of women.) So I'm requesting recommendations for female characters who fit these three criteria. Can be books, TV, movies, manga, anime, video games, basically anything that isn't RL. Ladies of color are especially appreciated :D

Blaargh, haven't hardly written anything in a month or two. I completely lost my funny around June-ish, and while I think it's back, I'm a little tentative about finishing up any of my humor stuff. I'm in a perfect mood for writing angst, but I'm so sick of writing it. Maybe I should try for something fluffy instead--only I really don't have any good story ideas. Prompt me?

In a somewhat more depressing turn, there's been a rather ugly race wank going around in HP fandom; the initial post laying out the issue is here, with more links here and even more links here. What I really hate about this kind of thing (I mean, apart from the stuff like people refusing to admit they accidentally made a mistake, and people attacking the messenger so they won't have to take responsibility, and people equating having sex with me with having sex with goats, wtf?, etc.), what I really hate is how hard it makes it to trust the people on my friends list.

I mean, I was lucky this time. None of the d_d mods and none of the people showing their backsides in the apology post are on my flist. But I was in HP fandom for two years, and I've always had an open friending policy. They weren't on my flist--but they easily could have been.

And I want to trust you guys. You all seem like cool people, and I'd like to think that if something like this came up you'd be able to deal with it like respectful and rational human beings. But I can almost guarantee that the people being dismissive and disrespectful and outright offensive in this wank had nothing in their LJs or the way they presented themselves that would tip anyone off. There is literally no way for me to tell whether any of you are that kind of person.

It just poisons the entire well. For me, fandom is about having fun, first and foremost. But I actively dread the day when something similar happens in a fandom I'm active in. Because then it'll be on my front stoop, and I may have to make some very painful decisions about people I thought I knew. Pretty much the exact opposite of fun :/ It's hard for me to think of leaving fandom forever-- but if I do, it'll probably be because of something like this.

I wish I could say I knew what kind of response I'll get to this post. But I really don't.
