...I'm on the first episode of s4 of Deep Space Nine, and it's actually good.

Huh.

I need a DS9 icon. I need a Paid account for purposes of several icons from several fandoms.

So this is pretty much my favorite fic of the New Year, and it is a huge love/critique/love letter of meta to fandom, and it is Merlin/Arthur in the most adorable way possible, and did I mention it is a huge love letter to fandom and I love it like burning?

Whoever this anon is, they're amazing.

In which Arthur is a BNF and Merlin is his prized beta...

Have at it!.

Sort of swiped from [profile] ariastar, but as I just woke up and it seemed better than reading through the fic chapter that's been giving me hell this week, I figured, why not? After all, almost every single one of my ships is canon, since that's what gets me interested in the first place.

So, without further ado:

Allo thar OTPs! )

And that's it, folks. :)

Now, I've heard about the utter vitriol aimed at (and written to) James Moran, I've heard about the death threats, I've heard RTD referred to as a "self-hating gay", and... really? I mean, really?

Yes, there might have been plot points in Children of Earth that I/you/she/he/that walrus down the hall might not agree with, but personal attacks? Not cool, guys, and they reinforce everything negative about fandom as a whole or implied spoilers ) in particular. RTD and James Moran and John Fay wrote a story, they didn't kill your puppy. It's all right to be upset, angry even. It's all right to say all the mean things you want to friends or on AIM or on the phone; goodness knows I did watching Days 4 and 5.

But going after the writers in question is not the way to go about things. Personal attacks placed in public journals or, worse, the writers' own blogs is not the way to go about things. It's unnecessarily hostile and just completely out of line.

I realize people are hurt and angry about major spoiler ) or what happens to Jack. I get it. I'm not exactly a happy little butterfly myself. But this behavior is unacceptable, and really only going to do more harm than good.

That said, my thoughts on why I am NOT a fan of the end of 'Children of Earth' )

And on another note, check out the macros here if you're wondering about Martha and CoE. Minor spoilers, but it's hilarious.

Name me a fandom and I'll tell you my...

One True Pairing Ship:
Canon Ship:
"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a spork" Ship:
"You are one sick bastard" Ship:
"I dabble a little" Ship:
"It's like a car crash" Ship:
"Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" Ship:
"Makes no canon sense but why the Hell not" Ship:
"Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" Ship:
"When all is said and done" Ship:

Or, more specifically, BBCA's Captain's Blog:

Other Staff issues: Seeing Gwen experience it for the first time took me right back to when I first heard that terrible scream. After Gwen had gone home, I just held on to Ianto for a couple of hours, as tightly as I could.

I think that has just killed me.

Oh, and on a completely different but somewhat similar note, everyone who has been craving some more sanity in fandom but has been too afraid to look should go look at this post by [livejournal.com profile] violet_lane: http://violet-lane.livejournal.com/75329.html?nc=45

Basically, it points out some of the huge disparity between fandom's treatment of females in love and males in love (e.g. Rose gets crap for potentially MAYBE not "getting over" her love for the Doctor after this huge traumatic seperation from not only him but also her entire reality, while Jack not moving on from Rose or the Doctor in 150 years is true and brave and loyal and awesome. Same with Mickey. Same with Ianto.). Yay complete lack of logic in the anti-Rose brigade!

And now I be off. Should be studying, but will probably play video games. :P

Ta mates!

Yes, it does exist.

If anyone wants some actual sanity in Who fandom, here it is:

I don't necessarily agree with all of it (I do think that the Doctor is more than a little too arrogant for his own good, for instance), but it's so nice in a sea of hostility, complete blindness to what's actually on screen, ship-wars transformed into character hate, half-wild and ridiculous accusations, and more hositility.

And because another entry from me would probably make people's friends' lists spasm and throw rotten tomatoes and sonic screwdrivers at me:

What American accent do you have?

You definitely have a Boston accent, even if you think you don't. Of course, that doesn't mean you are from the Boston area, you may also be from New Hampshire or Maine.

What American accent do you have?

Yup. :D

.....And I do not have an accent, dammit! Well, except for things where you have a "t" between two vowels (such as "Latin" or "Stoughton"), which is where I basically break up the syllables and don't pronounce the "t". But that's it!

Okay, this is just a random thought that I doubt any of you will actually reply to (since I am obsessed and most of y'all are not) but in what ways is Joan actually like Rose? I mean, sure they look a bit alike, and sure they're both brave and clever and compassionate and strong. But beyond that...?

Rose and Martha have more in common than Rose and Joan. So when I see people saying Joan is really 1912!Rose, I get very confused. @_@ Just look at her behavior in Family of Blood with Martha... that is not Rose behavior. And look at how she associates with John Smith compared to, say, how Rose acts when first meeting Jack. And no way is Rose as mature as Joan, either. They're just... very different people, though I'm far too tired to make a detailed list as to HOW they're different right now. It's not just their respective ages and time periods (though those certainly are factors) that delegate their differences.

Just because John Smith falls in love with Joan doesn't mean she has to be Rose version 2.0 (or 0.5, since we're in the past and all). John Smith=/=Doctor, just as Mickey=/=Doctor, just as Jimmy Stone=/=Doctor, just as Reinette=/=Rose.

And that's me... being done with my half-rant, half-confuzzlement.

On another note, I'm actually working on me novel again. Yippee!!! :D

Not sure if I've done this bit of fandom whining before, but what is it with all Rose/Doc shippers hating Reinette...

And what is it with half the fandom hating Rose?

Why must fandoms be so full of hostility... *Shakes head*

Now I REALLY need to work on me novel. @_@

Oh, and COMPLETELY unrelated, but I GOT MY DRIVER'S PERMIT!!!!!!!!!!!! XD XD XD

They need to have more House/Cameron...

Thank you, that is all.

(And I need me a House icon)
