Leading Men Age, But Their Love Interests Don't -- this is some creepy shit, dude.

Why I Don't Want to Be a Queer Book Detective (Although I Still Want to Be Harriet the Spy): "I don’t want the priority reading audience for our books to be non-queers.  I don’t want them to be palatable to straight and cisgendered people. I don’t want publishers to have their cake and eat it too: slyly de-queer the book to appeal to cis/straight audiences and assume LGBTQ folks will figure it out and buy the book too."

Hear hear.

Send me a fetish and I'll rate it:

▪ Meme: The first five people to comment on this post will receive from me, sometime this year, a gift – perhaps a picture I drew for you – a surprise! There will be no warning and it will happen whenever the mood strikes me. The catch? Those five people should make the same offer...

▪ Read Fudoki by Kij Johnson (5 stars out of 5 stars)

Once Upon a Time: watched "The Miller's Daughter" and just... goddamn it. Regina, you are too good for this show. I think we should change the title from Once Upon a Time to Hey Everyone, Let's Piss on Regina Mills: The Show.

▪ And more OUaT. Tweet: "6. Nobody on your show is queer=heterosexism". Adam Horowitz: "No 6. How do you know that?" (Adam Horowitz in response to this tweet.) And you know what, all I have to say to this is -- well, show it, don't tell! Show us a queer fairy tale character then! It's not really that much too ask for, is it?

Goddamn you, Tabrett. Goddamn you, Bridget. Just goddamn you~ ([personal profile] hibernate , how come you haven't talked about this? ;) )



So I don't know if it's me being a bit dense here but.... I can't really figure out what the aim of this vid is, so if you people could help me out, I'd appreciate it. Are we supposed to find it "funny" because A) it's making fun of stereotypical straight couples *actually* acting like this and hence is commenting on how ridiculous that is or B) it's "funny" because, haha, girls would *never* send their boyfriends flowers, or haha, girls would *never* get down on one knee and propose to their boyfriends, etc. I'm... not sure. Either way, I don't really find it an amusing vid, but, hey, that's just my opinion. :P

▪ So, am I the only one who's been watching Jormungand? Because if that's the case - why? I really don't want to jinx it, but thus far this anime has been like a beautiful shiny diamond! A show with quite a number of females, all in positions of power who pass the three rule Bechdel test? A show that respects them? A show where women are just as dangerous as men are? This anime is like a unicorn! I definitely recommend it. Oh, also, there's a lesbian bodyguard who is awesome, so yay~





▪ I've been kind of really addicted to the Corpse Party games recently! Anyone play them? Because you should. They're really entertaining. And I guess I'm a bad person for finding this as funny as I do - [kinda big spoiler] - but, hey, it's the truth. And my favourite character, too, of course. :P Looking forward to the anime which is in the works and the Book Of Shadows game! Excited~

▪ Seeing as Merlin is over, I thought I'd link to my Morgana fanmix which I made last year. It might be of interest to at least one person. *cough [livejournal.com profile] majorrogue cough*. ;)

▪ Finished reading The Rose and The Beast: Fairy Tales Retold by Francesca Lia Block (4.5 out of 5 stars) and The Two Princesses of Bamarre (4 out of 5 stars) by Gail Carson Levine.

Bomb Girls. The first episode of season 2 and just whtowufoauifoghaoi~ Look at these precious bebes, just look:

• Read Alison Bechdel's Fun Home and Are You My Mother? and reread Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis. People, go buy them if you don't own them already! 

• So, anyone wanna discuss the promo photos of Emma and Regina? And that ensemble pic? :P

• Also, this very short Swan Queen fanvid, because, yes! Good, Very good. The kind that puts ideas in your head...

What the *hell* is LJ playing at? D: Kind of incredibly annoying, if I may say so myself! 

Anyways, I'm back! Hope everyone is fine and well. :) 

Let's keep it short and sweet, shall we: 

- If you like Utena, do yourself a favour and check out the Revolutionary Girl Utena: Texts From Last Night tumblr blog. It's hilarious and my most favourite thing in the world at the moment!  

- On that fairy tale note -- I've read Malinda Lo's Huntress, Jim C. Hines' Princess Series (oh my God, Talia! <3 <3 <3) and Emma Donoghue's Kissing the Witch, all of which can't be recommended enough. Loved every single book.  

- Peter Gabriel covers Arcade Fire's "My Body Is A Cage"

Merlin. 3x06: Changeling.

The only thing this episode left me with was the craving for some Evil!Smirky!Morgana/Princess Elena fic where she is expertly seduced and totally corrupted and joins the dark side as a result. Please, please someone write it?

*

Dexter. 5x04: Beauty and the Beast )

*

Also, yes please I want this book! It's the prequel to Ash which I loved a whole lot, so can't wait for this!

- Read Ash by Malinda Lo. Will someone please, please, please write some Ash/Kaisa epilogue fic for Yuletide? Or any other fest or for any other reason for that matter? *puppy eyes* 

- Look, I like beer, I like drinking it and relaxing with a single cold bottle in my hand on a warm summer day, but it's the packaging of this brew in particular that just... I don't know. 'What the hell' covers it nicely, I think.

- The game The Path: it's basically Angela Carter's Bloody Chamber meets Silent Hill in pure creepiness and disturbingness of what's implied in the imagery connected with each of the different girls when they meet their individual Wolf. For example, Carmen's meeting with her Wolf goes like this. /successfully creeped out./ I definitely recommend checking this game out, if not just the videos on Youtube, to get an idea of what this experimental indie game is like. If you like fairy tales and the darker tone the original version of Little Riding Hood had, then go check out The Path. 

- I approve mightily of this: Jane Austen Fight Club
