My fannishness would be much less conflicted if I had stuck to my decision about never reading DC. And then stuck to my decision about not following the reboot stuff. Sigh.

I gave in and archived pretty much all of my tumblr fic on AO3. Things I haven't posted here:

A bit of Tim/Kon fluff that I wrote as a present. I feel bad about writing Tim/Kon because I haven't read much of anything with them from before Kon's return, so my characterization is mostly fanon. Well, a lot of my comics characterizations are fanon because I can only read so many issues per day, but I actually want to form my own opinion here because this is an OTP.

Sort-of Alex/Darwin drabble (NSFW). I'd been trying to make my friend watch XMFC since...well, since it came out, because that was when I cared, but she finally actually watched it the other day. I figured she'd go for the Cherik like everyone else in the entire world but she has been ranting about the ACTUAL doomed romance of Alex/Darwin which is great but it's giving me feels again.

Two reboot Batfam drabbles. The first one was a reaction to Tim's new backstory, because I am pretty much always and forever mad about reboot Tim killing tiny stalker Tim. The second is about Jason's time as Robin. I told the person I wrote it for that I felt like I made Bruce too nice, but he would HAVE to be nice for them to have any sort of emotional connection there, what with four Robins in five years. I mean, Tim's relationship with Bruce is completely shafted/makes no sense now (is he still Tim Drake Wayne? His parents are still alive!) but Dick's and Jason's are treated as the same, despite that making no sense...

Several Young Avengers ficlets. I apparently have feelings on queer visibility in media, and also all the boys. No one requested the girls, sadly. I have feelings on them, too. Not really on the Vision though.

(I already have feelings on America Chavez too, and they are mostly INCREDIBLE EXCITEMENT. I cannot WAIT for the new series!)

ETA: Oh and also, I would just like to leave this cover of an upcoming Teen Titans issue here completely without commentaryRead more... )

How do you decide if a fic's worth archiving on AO3?

ETA: And if you do a bunch of ficlets from prompts, do you archive them together or separately?

New post to keep track of things I've read. (Maybe I'll put real books here too! If I...finish any.) Previously: trades read 2012.

I signed up for [community profile] trope_bingo! This is going to be so fun! Also, looking at this card makes me realize that comic books essentially are giant games of trope bingo, since a lot of these are canon for characters I want to write for.

I don't even remember what I was going to post about. I've been having fun bothering my sister while she's home, but I think she's going to snap and murder me soon.

Christmas was fine. I got a Kindle Fire, which is really nice, but I actually needed clothes, so I'm...not sure how to feel. I also think I'm very clever, so I made this Read more... ) to go with the Superboy t-shirt I got my sister.

Uh. Movies. A while back, I saw The Hobbit. I liked it! I have no other thoughts. Yesterday my mother took us out to a movie, which meant that she went to see Twilight while my sister and I saw Les Miserables. I was 100% unfamiliar with it, other than knowing it contained French revolutionaries. It was indeed pretty miserable, and I enjoyed it a lot. Mostly I enjoyed Eponine, because I didn't know I could love hopeless devoted unrequited het love as much as I can between members of the same sex but apparently this is so. Also, that actress is just gorgeous.

I'm trying to figure out why I find a lot of superhero comics really boring, when that's not true for manga. I'm not sure if there's an actual difference or if it's just selection bias. I've also been thinking about how my reasons for originally deciding not to read superhero comics are still the same, as in literally nothing has changed, but I'm reading them anyway. What the hell is wrong with me. (Also, this kills my excuse for breaking up with CLAMP, so I read Drug and Drop. Are Kakei and Saiga actually whatstheirfaces from Wish? I wish I had access to my manga.)

Two more Christmas ficlets. I don't know how the DCnU became my primary fandom. This is not a thing that I wanted to happen.

This one is sort-of Jason/Tim, for a tumblr friend.

Wrote a present for my sister. I feel like I should post it around so people can read it while they're waiting for Yuletide to go live, but I am too lazy. Also, I ship Jason with everyone in this fic.

I want to re-watch (or read, if I can find it) Loveless, for a terrible fusion idea.

Speaking of which, over on tumblr I changed my user icon from this one of Yuuko to one of Wanda, and asked the age-old question "Yuuko vs Wanda who would win?" Coattailsofdoom answered "They’re both too awesome to fight each other! They’d hang out and drink tea (or sake, knowing Yuuko) like classy ladies." Of course, she was right.

Edited slightly from the original post. Set sometime during the early part of xxxHolic and pre-Avengers Disassembled.

Right, so I should introduce myself to newly friended people! Read more... )

In more interesting news:

- Someone on tumblr has put up a translation of the first chapter of Ants of Heaven, which I only glanced at because I am not at my own computer to look at the scans with it, but yay!

- Every time I start thinking of maybe giving DC some of my money (when I get some), they do something that reminds me why I don't. Thanks for reminding me that you don't actually want my money, DC!

- I intensely dislike creators being on tumblr and I feel like everything is going to end in disaster, "everything" being the intersection of Gillen's trolling and the young and intense Young Avengers fandom. Didn't Teen Wolf fans drive someone off the internet or something? I don't know, I just predict doom.

I caught up with this week's Nashville, and everything was so green! (Except for the one scene where it was randomly fall.) I hate winter. I still don't really have many thoughts on the show except: Juliette! Woobie. I have moved from just watching the scenery to genuinely caring about characters...well, one character.

Also this week I read the Astonishing X-Men: Northstar trade, the one with the gay wedding. It contains the issues from the start of Liu's run to the wedding, which is like...4 issues, and sadly did not label the characters for me. I really, really, appreciate when comics do that. Also, I still can't tell which one is Iceman when he's not coated in ice. It also has the Nation X issue where Northstar and Kyle go on a date, which only reinforces my opinion that supers should date within the community (though Northstar and Kyle are really cute together), and the issue of Alpha Flight where Northstar first came out, which is essentially a PSA for AIDS awareness. It was a really sad issue both in terms of the plot (dying baby!) and the historical context it was published in. (Yes, I just called 1992 historical.) Large image under cut )

Also, apparently Scott Lobdell continues today to write the same way he did 20 years ago.

Why is social interaction so exhausting? I am making this post so it will sit on my f-list and stare at me accusingly until I really update. Even though it's tv night.

I finished another (short) thing! This is amazing! I have no appropriate icon for it, though.

Note that this is entirely reboot fic, so Kon is new Kon. They should have rebooted him to adorable 90s Superboy, that would be the best.

I have thoughts on Isabel in RHATO. I don't think anyone else reads it, but if I'm going to try for text discussion on tumblr I might as well try for it here too. Not-really spoilers.Read more... )

I finally finished something longer than a drabble! \o/ Have some angst for Thanksgiving, and remember that one thing you can always be thankful for is that you aren't a member of the Batfamily.

If you missed it, you can opt into my comic uploads filter here. If you can't see that post, don't hesitate to ask for access.

I made a new tumblr friend who also has the theory, which I considered briefly after reading the 0 issues, that Lobdell intends to make Tim related to Jason in the reboot. I dismissed this on account of Do Not Want but since other people think it... if this ever turns out to be true I just want to be able to say I called it before I then begin shrieking about it.

Comics from the past two weeks:

X-Factor 246: Read more... )

Action Comics 14: I didn't actually read this, just the bit with the Neil Degrasse Tyson appearance. I thought it was pretty cool.

Batman and Robin 14: Read more... )

Batman 14:Read more... )

Avengers Assemble 9: You know those movieverse fics where they just all hang out in Stark Tower and banter? That is literally this issue, except with Carol and Jessica Drew, which pretty much makes it 500% more awesome.

Also...if I were to start, um, sharing some weekly comics here, would anyone be interested? I already share with others, so I might as well put them here too. I'll put up a locked poll on dreamwidth since I guess I'll filter that. If I haven't granted anyone access who wants it, just give a yell.

It's 6 am and I've been up for two hours. My parents are safely on a plane to Florida and I have the house to myself for a week and a half. I also just discovered that they left a roast in the fridge. Time to practice my crock pot skills.

Hello newly friended dreamwidthers! It is very nice to meet you. Maybe I will be more interesting later when my brain kicks online. In the meantime if anybody wants to introduce themselves or ask me random questions or leave "yay Obama" gifs in the comments, please feel free.
