  2. writing and whatnot

    Well, let’s see here. I ended up taking this semester off from school, for bullshit reasons, but it’s had the pleasant effect of giving me more time to bake, cook, organize, run, and oh yeah write. 

    This month I already posted Gimme Shelter, a DMMd fic (17.5k). Because I am a dip, I am also partway through a very short (like, 5k) post-finale Free! fic centered around Sousuke for friedcheesemogu. I am also also editing and blasting through the last 20k or so that needs to be written for the 80% finished behemoth Marvel fic I’ve been working on for about 2 years now on and off, and all of that shit needs to be done by the end of October because, uh. I’m doing Nanowrimo this year. 

    So, let’s see if I can post 175,000 words of fiction on the AO3 by the end of the year. I’m already at 83.5k, and I can’t let friedcheesemogu or sconesforjustice lick me or I’m gonna lose my reputation as “that writer friend of yours who infects everyone with Longfic-itis.” 

    Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go question my life choices change out the laundry and write.

  3. NaNo Prep: How to Write About What You Don’t Know

    lettersandlight:

    image

    NaNo Prep season is here, and we’re asking the folks at NaNo HQ and our friends to help you get ready to tell your story this November. If you’re considering stretching out of your comfort zone to write about a culture or experience different from your own, author Crystal Chan has a few easy tips to figure out if you’re ready:

    The old adage is, Write what you know. But what if you find yourself writing about what you don’t know—if you’re a female writer writing about a male protagonist, or a white writer developing a Vietnamese character, or an able-bodied writer crafting a story about someone who’s disabled?

    If this is you, congratulations. You’re pushing your limits, and expanding your world. And take a deep breath, because a heavy dose of research—and humility—will be involved. You can’t just conjecture because you’ll do so using your own frame of reference. Writing about what you don’t know explicitly means that you can’t rely on your own experiences. You have to do so much research that this new material becomes what you know.

    Here are some launching points for those who want to tackle this issue:

    Gail Simone, Wonder Woman: The Circle

    Yes, let’s imply that Wonder Woman “deals with” all of her villains by killing them. That is 100% good characterization of Wonder Woman and not a distortion of her personality and ethics at all. I am so pleased to see everyone on my dash celebrating this idea.

    (via luanna255)

    Originally, Diana “dealt with” her enemies by turning them into allies. And then came Countdown to Identity Crisis. And THEN came the new 52.

    Just because you don’t have a code against killing doesn’t mean it’s your go-to solution.

    (via themadwhitaker)

    God, I hate this panel so much. I hate even more that someone’s decided to pair it with a Gail Simone quote that’s been taken completely out of context. There are elements of Simone’s Wonder Woman run I dislike, but if there’s one thing she understood about the character, it’s that Diana — although prepared to fight, and even to kill if there’s absolutely no other way — will always look for a peaceful resolution before anything else.

    image

    "We have a saying, my people. ‘Don’t kill if you can wound, don’t wound if you can subdue, don’t subdue if you can pacify, and don’t raise your hand at all until you’ve first extended it.’"Wonder Woman #25 (2008)

    In Wonder Woman #19, Diana is attacked by an enraged Green Lantern who believes her to be his enemy. She fights back, to defend herself and to give her friend Etta a chance to get away, but once she’s knocked him down, she extends her hand in peace.

    image

    He rages at her. He throws punch after punch, and she stands there and lets him. And when he’s exhausted himself—

    image

    She extends her hand again. And she talks to him, and she listens, and she appeals to his sense of justice and compassion. And in doing so, she gains an ally.

    This isn’t unique to Gail Simone’s run; it was a key characteristic of Diana throughout post-Crisis Wonder Woman. Back in 1989, in Wonder Woman #33, we have Diana’s shame at the realisation that she’d been fighting Cheetah as much out of a desire for revenge as a need to protect others:

    image

    Looking on the imprisoned Cheetah, Diana feels pity; she sees a woman maddened by pain and bloodlust, deserving of help as much as punishment. Where Cheetah’s captors would kill her just to shut her up, Diana tries to help.

    image

    Hell, we can go back further — to Golden Age Wonder Woman, where the Amazons sought to rehabilitate villains on Reform Island. Golden Age Diana sees the potential for good even in her enemies. Recognising that Priscilla Rich’s evil Cheetah personality is brought out by feelings of inferiority, she offers Cheetah praise and affirmation. “You’re a born dancer — your dancing could attract millions of admirers! Oh, Cheetah, why don’t you dance and make people love you?”

    image

    Like later versions of the character, this Diana is able to make friends even out of bitter enemies. Her first recurring villain, Baroness Paula von Gunther, eventually repents and comes to live with the Amazons as their top scientist.

    image

    So don’t give me this “When I deal with them, I deal with them” crap. That’s not Diana and it’s never been Diana.

    Because while she is capable of showering devastation on her enemies, what makes her a true hero is her restraint and compassion. She doesn’t raise a fist until she’s first extended a hand in friendship.

    And that’s how Wonder Woman wins the war. Not by wholesale destruction, but by forging understanding, turning would-be enemies into allies, even friends.

    That’s what makes her Wonder Woman.

    im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh

    I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.

    Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.

    It’s also story about breaking down the barriers of racism which we also need more of.

    And it’s about nice hair and cheesy dance moves, more things we need more of

    It’s a movie where John Travolta plays a chick, which we need more of
