Where Ward is replaced by a Muslim woman... )



* -- I have heard SHIELD has improved recently, so maybe this is no longer relevant. But I bet it doesn't have Muslim sorta lesbians and evil robots and conversations about race and passing and becoming part of the system and shared bodies and DEAD PUPPIES. So clearly mine is much better.

"It could just as easily have been you." (Teen Wolf)

According to a recap I read, the Alpha says this to Stiles. Which made me want an AU. Instead of doing the sensible thing and finding a kink_meme on which to prompt it. I STARTED WRITING IT. So first I got hold of the show and now I'm watching and writing. I quite enpoy doing it parallel like that with these kind of AUs -- staying very close to canon until divergence is necessary. But if I really stay close to canon, as in, scene by scene, it's gonna take bloody forever to write. So I'm going to have to diverge sooner rather than later. I have some ideas plotwise, but since I haven't actually watched any further than I've written (Which would be halfway into ep one... >_<) I don't really know if it's going to make sense within canon parameters. IDK, I could go entirely off track, but that means more work, and GDI I HAVE OTHER STUFF TO WRITE. Where did this even come from? I wasn't going to watch this damn show.



There should be more threesomes on TV (How I Met Your Mother). This clip ends too early, they cut the bit where they then all fall onto the sofa together. (NB: This is from the blooper reel, don't get those hopes up.)



A sexual minority speaks out and Response. -- It's not subtle, the response even less so. But it's funny and painful all the same.

In Barcelona. Have a job! Only 8 hours a week but whatever it´ll cover rent. IT´S A START. OKAY? Am using flatmate´s v weird Spanish keyboard laptop and her dongle internet thing, still no internet in the flat. ¡Dios mío!

Ok, so do you ever get this thing where you get a soundtrack/music in your head? I don´t mean a tune stuck in your head, I mean, for example, when I'm making up stories, or daydreaming. I get a soundtrack in my head. If I focus too hard on it, it disappears into silence. Usually I don't notice it's there, but if I do, If I sort of half focus, like looking at something out of the corner of your eye, I can listen to it.

But I'm not consciously deciding what note comes next. I don't even decide what style/genre of music it is. It just seems to happen.

IT'S NOT WEIRD. I'M TOTALLY NORMAL. SHUTTUP.

* I stayed up late then got up early. THAT'S MY STORY AND I'M STICKING TO IT.

Since I managed to anon fail on the Eagle kink meme, I might start writing and posting all the random Consequences 'verse bunnies I have in my mind. THEY ARE TAKING OVER. I NEED SPACE FOR THINGS LIKE RECIPES AND UM OTHER FICS AND... Yeah okay fine, I don't actually have anything better to store in the space between my ears. MULTIPLY YOU FLUFFY BASTARDS. HAVE AT.

A whole lot of rambling, mostly about the Celts, mention of some other things I'm writing, TSN and original fic, at end. )

You know what? Can we have a story about a bunch of lesbians, with this one token gay male relationship, like a brother of one of the leads, or an ex-boyfriend from before she came out. And the brother's/ex's partner really hates her, for no apparent reason, and is all bitchy etc. and guess what?! The guys want a baby! And they want to use one of the lesbian's wombs to do so! And they want it right away and it's all weirdly sudden and no one seems to deal with emotional repercussions!

Let's do that, instead of, oh. THE OTHER WAY AROUND. Or hey, radical idea? LET'S NOT DO IT AT ALL.

In other words: The Broken Hearts Club = QAF except with Timothy Olyphant in. )

So. Openings. Thinking more on what I said about names and made up words in my Companion to Wolves review.

I stand by it, but...

You can get away with introducing unknown names without giving fuckloads of exposition... how? By giving us a solid opening.

Time was I wouldn't ever stop reading a book, no matter how bad I thought it was. Nowadays, I know when to cut my losses. I think it's fanfic that cured me of that blind adoration of profic. There's so much better out there and I ain't got the time to waste.

So, I'm starting this off with a confession - I didn't finish this book. Maybe it got better, maybe not. This is my opinion of what I read:

fail fail, read Robin Hobb/fanfic instead )
