Pride

 So two things: watched the move Pride recently, and then had Pride weekend.

I loved the film way more than I thought I would. I mean, not that I thought I wouldn't like it, but wow. It was just... really well-constructed. There was a lot of crying in our viewing group. And then I kept seeing pictures of this group who protested in London with a Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants banner and had happy feelings all over again.

Pride weekend, I went out to a LGBT-themed partner dance event (pretty boring, so much Country Two-Step. I'm still waiting to understand why lesbians love Country Two-Step). And an aggressively queer club night, which was intense and crowded and full of great music. It ended up being just me and[twitter.com profile] ohshitcircuit and we had to dance very close because of the crowding which was... not a huge hardship *g*. I skipped the Dyke March because I got lazy and my roommate was fused with the couch and didn't want to leave, and also me and lesbian events have a weird relationship because they usually try to retroactively be inclusive of all queer women but still, I'm not a lesbian so. It's not really my space, and even if it was, I feel that calling events for all queer women "lesbian" or "dyke" is pretty erasing of bi+ identities. It's why I don't go to Lesbians Who Tech events even though they're always claiming to be for all queer women.

As an antidote to all the feeling-invisible, I marched with the Bisexual Networks group in the big Pride parade. This is my second year marching with them, and I love doing it. I've been in the parade once before, with a "geek pride" group, but it didn't feel nearly as good. A lot of the groups in the parade are really nonspecific about whether their members are LGBTQIA+ or allies or corporate employees paid or cajoled to be there. I'm not sure that's necessarily a bad thing, but it makes participating in the parade feel like less of an act of queer visibility. Walking with the bi group, dressed as Bi Pride Captain America, feels profoundly visible. We don't have a float, just around 20 people and a banner from the Bisexual Women's Network, and I spend the whole time running from side to side cheering with and high fiving as many spectators as possible. I saw two "It's Stars AND Stripes" shirts and one obviously homemade bi pride Cap shield shirt and so many people on the sidelines with bi, trans, or ace pride flags painted on their cheeks. I love that people do that, I love seeing everyone who steps outside of "queer, not otherwise specified" to say that they're specifically something that is neither straight nor gay. And it feels like something to be out there wearing bisexual colors when I'm not fully, officially out. I hope it means something to people watching the parade who see us. In a sea of big companies and churches preaching a nonspecific "we love you" and "love is love," to be visible as something specific and still deviant in so many places is powerful. To touch the hands of so many teenagers with bi pride flags on their faces, and so many who might be questioning and need to see that we're here, we exist, we are an identity and a community.

There are a lot of queer communities. There's the cis gay men's community which has no use for people they don't want to fuck, there are women's communities at various stages of dealing with their history of transmisogyny, there's an amorphous kind of trans/genderqueer+ community that I see forming from the trans women and the nonbinary people who don't feel included elsewhere. More and more, the community I want is polysexual community. Bisexual, pansexual, multi-gender-attracted of all stripes, biromantic asexual, everyone who's into people of similar and different genders in a non-platonic way. One of the more contentious issues around non-lesbians in queer women's spaces is what to do when they have cishet men as significant others; I'm leaning more and more towards just not dating straight men any more.

There's quite a bit of behind-the-scenes about Leverage from The Powers That Be, but creator John Rogers' blog is a pain to navigate so I have compiled links to all relevant posts for you. There's also a behind-the-scenes podcast that was recorded during seasons 4 and 5.

Presented without commentary because I wanted to get them done in a reasonable amount of time. Most of the fic posted to the ao3 during the season 1 timeframe was short, so these are quick reads.

 I should've been doing this all along, because whatever feelings I had specifically about seasons 2 and 3 are now lost forever to the sands of time ;____;

I started watching Leverage about three weeks ago.

I am now approaching the end of season 3.

So, that happened.

And also the searching ao3 for Hardison/Parker/Eliot and Hardison/Eliot fic, searching by reverse date posted, and clicking on everything that doesn't look bad. The ao3 tells me I have viewed about 160 Leverage fics since Jan 21. Um.

I have some observations:

I finally bought and read the first trade of Sex Criminals. I'd read the first issue when it was free online, and I saw Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky at a panel on it in March last year despite not actually having read it. So far, love it. The female protagonist's origin story is especially well-done for something written by men. Her sexuality isn't a stereotype. And it's about sex, and funny, but it doesn't laugh at people's sexuality.

Also rewatched the first truly social justice oriented episode of Criminal Minds, "Legacy" from season 2. The killer in the episode is completely underdeveloped as a character, but that's balanced by how much focus they put on the victims and on the local cop that brings them in. This is the episode where the local police captain wants them to go away, because homeless people, drug users, and street sex workers "can't disappear."

Hotchner: "What if they were cheerleaders?"
Captain Wright: "Excuse me?"
Hotchner: "Or teachers, or mothers. How did you put it, 'can bums even be missing'? Well, sir, they can. They can be hurt, they can be scared, and they can be killed."

One of the things I appreciate about Criminal Minds is the relative realism of types of victims and law enforcement response. The serial killers with the highest body counts prey upon vulnerable people who won't be reported to police. That's a prominent feature of this case and the later one that's loosely based on the Pickton murders.

I don't have a fandom that I'm in a passionate affair with right now, so this is a collection of things that I've bookmarked that I've enjoyed. I seem to have a long backlog of things I bookmarked that I haven't read yet. Oops.

 An intro to fannish gift exchanges through the history of the author's participation.

Dana's meta post about their favorite fic they've written, The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized

I love that story so much. It's an Inception fic, but it's not just AU because omegaverse, it's also set in an original world Dana created for the story. So you don't need to know a thing about Inception to read it. It's my go-to story to explain how interesting and gender politicky omegaverse can be, while also enjoying its tropes for their sexy kink factor.

Hello dear fanperson and thanks for creating a gift for me! I'm writing this to add more non-fandom-specific information about what I like. All of this is just more information for you; if it doesn't line up with what you're happy creating, feel free to go a different direction.

Things I especially like, general:
  • Groups of characters that contain at least one woman
  • Everyone in a canon team/group is a big happy family. Chosen families.
  • Explicit sex
  • BDSM
  • Anything that the author kinks on, even if it's unusual or viewed as "extreme"

Things I especially like in stories (fic and podfic):
  • Characters who identify as poly, if it's appropriate to the setting of the fandom
  • Relationship configurations where not everyone is involved romantically or sexually with everyone else: open relationships where characters can date or have sex separately, poly "vee" or network poly
  • There's jealousy but the characters work through it
  • Characters being excited about non-monogamy: voyeurism, taking joy in a partner's joy, organizing an orgy for a partner
  • Characters screwing up non-monogamy and making mistakes, but then fixing them
  • If there's sex, the sex telling an important part of the emotional story for the characters. I don't believe in PWP, porn is a plot!
  • One character's desire for a particular relationship style or kink that they've always been ashamed of or afraid they're never going to get being revealed to other characters, who are supportive and make things happen
  • Omega-verse and D/s AUs as social commentary on gender
  • Less represented sexual orientations: bisexuality, asexuality, aromanticism
  • "Genderswap" (AUs that change cisgender characters to the other gender, transgender and genderqueer characters)
  • Blurring the lines between which relationships are "romantic" and which aren't

Things I especially like in visual art:
  • Imagining alternate versions of characters by changing their gender presentation, race/ethnicity, etc
  • Art that has an in-universe reason to exist, like fake "snapshots"

Unfavorite tropes:

  • Amnesia
  • Soulbonding and soulmates, when played straight (the characters end up giving in to the social norms)
  • De-aging
  • Sex work AUs where the characters end up quitting their jobs to be monogamous
  • Incest
  • Chan (pre-pubescent characters involved in romance or sex)
     
Anon comments on, if anyone wants clarification.

 I have been remiss in not posting much at all, especially about non-fandom life, which is kind of... important to make friends, I guess?

Having some thoughts about representation, both in original storytelling and narrative fanworks, prompted by a couple of memories.
  • On a con panel about disability in the media, someone said it was a decade between them first identifying as disabled and becoming part of a disability community, and that they still didn't see any disabled characters in media who were visibly part of a community.
  • I went on a brief kick of reading all the white collar OT3 fic. Slash fandom is pretty OTP-heavy and aside from a few fandoms (like White Collar), stories that don't have an endgame in a single monogamous dyad are a rarity. But, like I said, brief kick. I burnt out on it. Why?
After consideration, I think there are three levels of representation of minority identities (and yeah, lumping together chosen and not-chosen things, because I don't think it matters in this case).

1. Presence. There's a character played by a non-white actor, or who has a relationship with someone of the same gender, or who uses a cane, or with a nontraditional gender representation, or who is in an open relationship, or...
2. Identity. The character is shown to identify in a particular way: lesbian, hispanic, kinky, disabled, polyamorous, transgender. There are fictional contexts where this doesn't make sense, if the character's culture doesn't have a framework for identifying that way.
3. Community. The character has a meaningful relationship with communitie(s) and shared culture around their identity, whether they join it or resist it.

Lots of fanworks stop at #1. That's a thing; plenty of people do that, too. The current slash community tends to stop at #2 for the sexual orientation identity of characters. We no longer have much "I'm straight, except for you," but we do have a lot of characters who identify as gay but never mention the idea of gay subculture (or that being gay is statistically unusual, unless that's required for the romantic tension). I see the full spectrum in fanworks about characters doing BDSM, from the ones who don't see it as identity all the way through to characters who either say they don't like the "scene" or who participate in it.

Why is it so hard to get to the third level in fandom? Sometimes it's only accessible to stories set in a fictional world that culturally resembles modern Western culture. And I think sometimes it's because, with few characters belonging to the minority group, focusing on that subculture moves away from the rest of the canon characters. Usually to show interactions between people who share the identity, you have to bring in original characters. I love groups that are family-like and tight knit and us-against-the-world and that doesn't mesh well with one character having a whole other community that we never hear about in canon.

I don't want to invalidate narratives that stop before #3. As I said, plenty of real people don't choose to go that far, and maybe in the fictional world there's only one (minority to us) race or no concept of sexual orientation as identity. But when I'm thirsting for fic about polyamorous people, the only thing that's truly satisfying is... wait, actually, I have never ever read a fic about polyamorous people that acknowledges polyamory as a subculture that the characters have thoughts about. Even if it's set in a future or fantasy world where non-monogamy is accepted. Rare enough that the characters can find an identity like that at all or get any kind of rudimentary "common pitfalls to avoid" wisdom.

So that's why I get burnt out on OT3 fic. Because every one seems to be a special snowflake relationship between people who were previously romantically monogamous. It's like the difference between "lesbian relationship" and "lesbian person."

Hey fandom geeks,

My panel on transformative fandom has been accepted by GeekGirlCon, but I need a few people to fill it out. We'll be talking about transformative fandom and why we participate in it.

Looking for fans who:

  • Identify as a geek
  • Reasonably sure about being able to attend in Seattle, October 19-20
  • Participate in a majority-female fannish community centered around the kind of transformative fanworks where we're often asked, "why would you want to do that instead of creating something 'original'?"

And since I'd like to represent a diversity of opinions and identities in the panel, it's a bonus if any of these areas that are not represented yet on the panel apply to you:

  • Fanartist
  • Podficcer
  • In fandoms outside of western movies, TV, and books
  • Person of color
  • Trans*
  • Genderqueer
  • In organized fandom for 15+ years
  • Femslash, het, or not a shipper
  • Lesbian-identified

Admission to the con is $35 and for people who are participating I can provide some financial assistance if necessary. Also planning on organizing some fannish social gatherings at the con.

If you're interested, please reply ASAP! I'm technically supposed to have my roster set by June 15th. Comments are screened in case you'd like to leave an email address or other contact info -- if you don't seem to have any private information in your comment I'll unscreen unless you ask me not to.

I see a lot of people on Twitter complain about the lack of community on Tumblr, express sadness that their newer fandoms don't seem to be on LJ or DW, and feel it's hard to escape from content they don't want on Tumblr and Twitter. And this is a wide experience, so it is a problem, and it saddens me to see so many people frustrated.

But we are many! And together we are powerful. And also that one person who you want to get away from on Tumblr probably doesn't have a journal.

Level 1: The Challenge
So here's your challenge. For two weeks, visit the journal site of your choice every day, and every day interact in some way. Ideas for interaction:

1. Comment on someone's post
2. Post some recs for interesting posts, communities, or journals that you think your followers might be interested in.
3. Follow someone new. On LJ this is called "friending," on DW you can add someone to your circle and subscribe to their posts without granting access to your private posts if you don't feel comfortable jumping into "friendship" with a new person.
4. Join the community for a newer fandom you're interested in, even if it doesn't seem active on journals at all.
5. Stop reading someone's journal. I know this sounds a little... negative in comparison to the rest of this post. But it's not. We create our fandom spaces, and we need to give ourselves the freedom to create spaces that make us happy and interested. So if there's someone on your flist whose posts you don't want to be reading, not reading them will make your journal experience happier! To stop reading an LJ without unfriending the person, create a list of users whose posts you do want to read and filter your flist by that list. You can bookmark the filtered page so you don't have to ever go back to the "all friends" view. On DW, you can uncheck "subscribe" on the circle management page without removing someone's access to your private posts or their ability to follow you.

Level 2: Advanced Challenge
Building our community on journal sites.

For those of you who are active in or passionate about a fandom that's mostly on Tumblr or another site.

To unlock your level 2 achievement, do one of these things:
1. If there's no community on your journal site for your fandom, create one!
2. If there is a community, make a post to it. Start a discussion, write some meta, rec some fan works...

Spread the Word

Post this on your journal:

Nimona by gingerhaze. If you haven't heard of gingerhaze, I don't know what rock you've been living under. This comic combines her cute art with a story about a supervillain who's not so villainous, really, and his shapeshifting sidekick Nimona.

Strong Female Protagonist by Brennan Lee Mulligan and Molly Ostertag. Allison is a super-strong nineteen year old college student who quit her superhero team when she started having doubts about whether punching people solves anything. Like most of the good modern superhero narratives, this is a story that questions the concept of costumed vigilantes.

FreakAngels by Warren Ellis, illustrated by Paul Duffield. You may have heard of these guys. Warren Ellis is the writer of a number of published comics, including Transmetropolitan. FreakAngels is a complete, 144-episode story about a group of superpowered young adults in post-apocalyptic London. Rather than being a story about superheroes per se, this one is more about superpowers, especially their telepathy and mind control powers, and how the group self-organizes and tries and fails to police themselves. The story has a large cast of characters who are all well-drawn. And the art is gorgeous, especially the large landscapes and scenery of drowned Whitechapel.

Wrote this to amuse myself before I had proper Internet back. Slightly expanded from the original with more wild suppositions because it was too correct and therefore not as funny as it could have been.

Scott is the main character, who hardly anyone cares about and fandom used to call a "potato" until someone pointed out it's an obscure slur used against people with Down's Syndrome. He's somehow turned into a werewolf at the beginning of the series, which makes him better at Lacrosse (an inexplicably popular and important game in their fictional California town). Scott gets with...

Allison, whose family, the super subtly named Argents, are werewolf hunters. But she inexplicably doesn't know about that despite being trained to hunt monsters using a bow since childhood. I think she doesn't know Scott's a werewolf. Her dad is a jerk and a monster-hunting zealot.

Stiles is Scott's best friend and is apparently 100x more interesting because 100x more slashy. Or maybe because he doesn't have a real first name. As we all know, this leads to slashyness (see: Eames). He knows about the werewolf thing and drives them around in his car and has ADHD. His dad is the sheriff, and his mom died when he was young. Oh, and dad is possibly an alcoholic but not abusive because this is not SPN fandom. Stiles is also an adorable magic pixie omega even though not an actual werewolf. And he's maybe into some chick named Lydia. And he's not canonically queer but we're all hoping because he once told someone he could be gay and Sterek.

Danny is their friend who is canonically gay and not a werewolf but not as hot as Dylan wassisname so he doesn't get much slash written about him. I think he plays lacrosse. Still don’t know WTF is up with lacrosse.

Jackson is some guy played by a very hot actor who maybe left the show? He's Danny's best friend but due to lack of werewolves or whiteness or glowering or something they aren't nearly as popular a ship. And there's something with him and lizards. Is he a were-lizard? And he is the captain of the lacrosse team.

Derek is Mr. Werewolf Romance Novel Hero. He lives in a burned ruin in the woods with his epic abs. It's burned because some older woman (Kate? I think? Or am I confusing this with White Collar?) seduced him as a teenager and broke his bb heart and burned his wolf family. Derek glowers and is grumpy and does not smile. Because he's sad. A sadness that can only be cured with some hot young magic pixie ass. He wears tight jeans and taking his shirt off is pretty much in his contract, though thanks to TV Magic (™) his hairy werewolfness does not extend to not having his chest waxed. He sneaks in through Stiles' window and also shoves Stiles against walls a lot. And he has an older relative named Peter who they thought was dead and may be a horrible person and/or zombie werewolf or something?

At some point because Derek is a lonely puppy he turns three others into werewolves so he can have betas: Erica, Isaac, and Boyd. Erica wears skimpy clothes and is blonde. I think Boyd is black. I think maybe Erica and Boyd have a thing, or are a side ship? I don't know a thing about Isaac. No one loves betas because they don't have knotting dog cocks or self-lubricating asses of biologically deterministic and joyful semen reception.

I've had some of this confirmed already but feel free to tell me what I got right.

I've tried. I've tried like three times. But:

1. I suck at watching TV by myself. I can usually make it through one episode of something before I get bored. I can watch 6 hours straight with someone else, but alone not so much.
2. I don't like horror in visual form. I don't like things that try to be scary and I hate jump scares. Criminal Minds is about the closest I'm willing to get to "scary."
3. I have a huge embarrassment squick. There are already parts of White Collar I can't watch. So Sam and Dean's pretending to be someone else in every episode? Well, between that and the scary, I'm not watching half the episode.

I know I should start at the beginning but maybe I'll skip to season 4 and see if it's more tolerable for me.
