Summer Pictures, 2017

  • Jul. 23rd, 2017 at 6:22 PM
I know, I know, summer still has a bit of life on in it yet. But I thought y'all might enjoy a few pictures of how my summer is going! It's pretty busy here and I haven't been able to really leave the city, save for some weekend day trips, however, it's still been fun! (And also a reminder of this country's nightmarish history.)

Anyway, play on!

Sorry for the length ... )

Anyway, that's my summer so far. Hope you enjoyed this picspam! Have a good night!
So, there's this fandom secret (it's the seventh down -- sorry, I'd link directly to it, but I'm on mobile and it's more trouble than it's worth) about Sirius' ~canonical sexuality. I mean, canonically? He doesn't have one. If Remus/Sirius shippers take their ship as near canon, who cares? It's not changing anything. You can take JKR's words about Tonks being Remus' only love and forget it or keep it. But that's not really how people work, it is? They fall in love, they fall out.

I honestly have an annoying time with JKR's extra-canonical additions -- like Dumbledore and Wizard Hitler being the only gays in the magical village, etc -- but there's no point in fighting with other fans about it. (Unless you want to, then you can. If you want to wank about Harry Potter right now in the year of our Lord (Voldemort) 2017, sound off on the comments below. We can fight with knives.)

Personally, with no illusions about it being canon or w/e, I think Sirius was in love with James and transferred some of that obsession (but not the attraction) over to Harry. In that way, he's a lot like Dave from The Charioteer. I was thinking this when fixing my hair this morning and realized that. Wait, don't I find Dave creepy and controlling? (Yes.) Shouldn't I ...? Of course, the difference is that Andrew was raised by Dave whilst Harry only saw Sirius a few times before the latter's death.

Now if Sirius had raised Harry... I'm trying to think of how to describe the exact opposite of pacifist Quakers but coming up blank. But um, yeah. That. With magic.

fic: the fighter

I had a lot of long, loving posts written out in my head. But you get bullet points instead.

- I've been meaning to post. I have selfies to post! Profound meditations on life and fandom to postulate! (No, I don't.) But in then end, eh. My life's been pretty peaceful so far. Work stresses me out.

- I was sleeping on the bus and someone said I looked pretty which was weird but nice because she was a motherly older woman than a creepy dude. Is this sexist?

- I wonder if the movie Dunkirk will prompt people to read The Charioteer? A friend on Twitter said she checked it out to she can read my fic and I am alternately delighted and dismayed. Not to worry, I have told her that there is a lot better fic than mine out there and will be reccing when she's finished with the book.

- Also, the Doctor will be a woman and not a moment too soon! I am a little disappointed that the Doctor isn't going to be played by a person of color, but I also remember how shit the fandom was to Mickey and Martha, so.... (Not just the fandom, but the writers too. Honestly, that's one of the reasons I'm not particularly nostalgic about LJ-based/'old' fandom -- it was incredibly hostile place for POC.)

Anyway, Jodie Whittaker was excellent in Broadchurch, even during the shaky second season. (Haven't seen the third.) But the reason she looked so familiar is of course because she was in Cranford! Ah, the period drama industrial complex, what would I do without you? I'm think I should probably see season 10 (I wanna see Bill!) and then the 13th Doctor soonish. Maybe once it's available to stream and I can do it with one go.

- Also, I have been driving my AO3 subscribers away by posting nothing but SASO fills for months. I really need to take a break from it and post something else. But what? Why?

Anyway, I posted something that might be relevant to y'alls.
