[personal profile] ysabetwordsmith
This poem was written outside the regular prompt calls, inspired by discussion with [personal profile] dialecticdreamer. It is posted in trade for her story "Marketing Day." It also fills the "septicemia / infected wounds" square in my 11-25-14 card for the [community profile] hc_bingo fest. This poem belongs to the Frankenstein's Family series, the last in the triptych which follows the trot-line incident, so make sure you've already read "The Cold of the Winter" and "The Heat of the Fever."

Petite surprise pour le 1er Avril ^^ (posté en avance et uniquement sur Ao3)
« Alors, je voulais juste que tu saches que je pense que tu es super, et je t’apprécie –depuis un moment maintenant- et accepterais-tu… De sortir avec moi ? »

Derek avait imaginé de toutes les façons possibles, le rejet que pourrait lui opposer Stiles, mais il ne s’attendait vraiment pas à le voir bouche bée, avec le visage étonnamment rouge, et lui criant, « Putain, c’est quoi ce bordel, Derek ! » avant de lui claquer la porte au nez.

 

Ou quand Derek oublie qu’on est le premier avril !

muccamukk: Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson walking arm in arm. Text: "We strolled about together." (SH: Strolling)
[personal profile] muccamukk
Listened to "Sisters of the Flame"/"Vengence of Morbius" by Nicholas Briggs, which is the series two finale. I always like the first two series of the EDAs because they're mostly episodic, and play to Doctor Who's strengths, which are humour, mystery and a little bit of scary, in an easily consumable format. Nothing in these series takes itself all that seriously, and that's nothing but a good thing. The finale is a little bit darker, but also has Lucie teaming up with a giant space centipede played by Alexander Siddig, and together fighting crime, so, you know. It also has a bunch of tie ins to a Four storyline I haven't seen, but mostly focused on how close Lucie and the Doctor have gotten, and how they'll move heaven and earth to find each other if separated, which was pretty well done. Also blah, blah universe ending, Time Lord Interference Blah. Drama. Et cetera.

Anyway, then I listened to "Orbis" by Alan Barnes and Nicholas Briggs, the start of the third series, when the arc plots are back and the episodes are twice as long, and um... I always forget how much I dislike this episode. On the face of it, it's a good premise: the Doctor and Lucie have been separated for some time and are reunited with unexpected emotional difficulties, the Doctor meanwhile has spent considerable time living with with sentient jellyfish and generally being domestic sans TARDIS, danger occurs, and suddenly they all have to work together and repair their bonds. Also it has the Headhunter, who I generally adore. But then you hit the horrific ending, with some really graphic chaos, and the Doctor fucks up on an unspeakable level (Also the Sisters of the Eternal Flame, but they don't seem to get flack), and it's all kind of sordid and ugly. Plus the other species of the day, the evil space crustaceans, are one of Big Finish's few gender variant aliens, and they're seen as gross and horrible. It all left a bad taste in my mouth, and reminded me that I'd never been especially fond of series three, so I'm avoiding listening to it.

I did listen to a couple of good EscapePods/PodCastles: "To the Knife-Cold Stars" by A. Merc Rustad, about memory and survival when you've lost everything, and "Without Faith, Without Law, Without Joy" by Saladin Ahmed about the bits of Spencer's Fairy Queen that fell through the cracks.

I also caught the Companion Chronicles with Three and the Brig called "Old Soldiers" which was pretty standard stuff, but it was very nice to hear that voice again, and the Bert Coules Sherlock Holmes fic "The Madness of Colonel Warburton," which had Watson being angsty and Holmes vaguely trying to sympathise but mostly getting distracted by drugs and solving crime, and was generally excellent.

So I've been driving myself crazy trying to sum up this story in a simple way, and it wasn't until I decided my website needed character bios that it all fell into place. Now this shit MAKES SENSE! It's quick and easy to read! It lets you know who's who and what they want! Why the hell I never thought of doing this before I have no clue but there you go, there are PICTURES and INFORMATION and I really need to hit the sack because wow look at the time.

But I made it. This thing will make sense yet.

Good night!

[personal profile] muccamukk
I'm currently suffering from the audio equivalent of a closet full of clothes and a feeling that I have nothing to wear. I have an MP3 player full of podcasts, and no interest in listening to any of them.

Podcast recs? I generally like, but am not currently interested in listening to, In Our Time, Welcome to Night Vale, Pod Castle, Escape Pod, Tapestry, Ideas, Writers and Company, Backstory, Doctor Who radio plays, Cabin Pressure, audio books. I realise most of those are professionally, even governmentally, done, but they're also easy to find, have even quality and production values, and commonly have girls in them. I used to like Awesomed by Comics and Sceptics Guide to the Universe, but have fallen away from them. I have tried This American Life and ... that other PBS one, Radio something?, and not felt much about them, same with SciFi Squeecast. Of Thrilling Adventure Hour, I pretty much only like Beyond Belief; the ironic racism in everything else kind of kills if for me.

If you want it fixed do it yourself.

Identifying Homosexuality in Indiana

Mar. 30th, 2015 05:54 pm
ysabetwordsmith: Cartoon of me in Wordsmith persona (Default)
[personal profile] ysabetwordsmith
This article takes a tongue-in-cheek look at passing privilege and the issue of identifying who may legally be discriminated against.  How do you "tell" if someone is homosexual?  Sometimes the person advertises it, sometimes it may be inferred from clues, but most of the time it is not so obvious.  This of course raises the issue of misconceptions; many cissexual, heterosexual people have been beaten or even murdered because someone mistakenly thought they were queer.  So too, Indiana will quickly discover that legalizing discrimination against homosexuals will also hit some heterosexuals.

And then there are those of us whose warning label should say, "Activist: push to start."  (I actually have that on a red button.)  Sure, there are times when I use passing privilege of various types because it's easy and I don't have an infinite supply of spoons, or when I believe that acting up would be dangerous.  But there are other times when I'll act up even if it is dangerous, and if I judge it safe, I will make a great big hairy scene.  Never get into a blurting contest with an annoyed bard, you will lose.  Because I can handle the kind of heat that bigots give off when someone objects to them being bigots, and not everyone can, and I want them to know that civilized people won't let them act like giant assholes without at least calling them out for it.

You can readily identify a queer person who does something like, "Oh gosh, you have a sign that says you don't serve queer people in here.  I guess I'll leave this big basket of stuff on the counter and take my $96 queer dollars to a store that is not run by giant assholes."

Just because I'm currently wearing a female body and in a permanent relationship with someone in a male body does not make me any less queer.  It's just a little harder to see from this angle, until I open my mouth.  As long as someone mistaking me for a heterosexual woman doesn't cause an issue, meh, I usually don't care.  Random strangers don't need to know my weirdnesses.  But when it IS an issue?  Open mouth, fire full broadside.  

This is why I got beef with people who claim that privilege is inescapable.  It's not.  It really, really  is not.  In fact it's a lot more frangible than people realize.  You can very easily lose your privilege if someone else mistakes you for a member of a disadvantaged group or if you are forcibly attached to it for some reason.  You can also choose to drop your privilege in the crapper and flush it along with all the other shit you don't need, just by voluntarily associating with disadvantaged people or by verbally dispensing with it when people offer you privilege that you don't want to accept.  Bigots will enthusiastically diss you for any or all of that.  

It's not all or nothing, of course.  If your association is not obvious, then you may have the option of picking your battles.  That lets you stay reasonably safe while still making a difference.  You might flush one privilege today and a different one tomorrow.  You might wax and wane your advertisement of hidden traits based on how much energy you have for a given cause or whether it makes you feel bad to hide (or reveal) what you are.  It's your life, your choice.

Just understand that it is a choice, just as bigotry or tolerance are choices.

"Tell me that's not what I think it is."

"Look I can't very well get rid of the entire thing at once, it's a process ok"

Derek stared at him incredulously

"Stiles there is a head in your fridge." Stiles shrugged nonchalantly, chewing his popcorn happily. "You have a head in your fridge and you don't even have any butter."

"It's on the third shelf down but if the heads putting you off then I wouldn't reccomend you look down there."

“Hey – isn’t that the cat of the guy you’ve been pining after?” she asks, biting her lip as she suppresses a laugh, “Is that?”

“Yes” Derek says dryly, “Probably his girlfriend’s.”

“You don’t know that” Laura says, picking up the cat an depositing it in Derek’s arm, “Maybe they’re his.”

Which doesn’t help at all – because now Derek has an extra visual to pine after.

“Sure” he sighs, hearing Laura shut the door behind her a cursing to himself as he turns and is suddenly facing -.

In the morning Derek came in and found a chocolate chip muffin on his desk. It was still warm. Derek bit his lip, adjusted his thick black glasses, and looked around the circulation area. There were no work studies there yet. Well no one but...

“Stiles-” Stiles Stilinski jerked and fell sideways out of his chair, spilling his books every where.

“Yeah, boss?” Stiles asked standing up, trying to not look like he’d knocked all of his books over.

“What do you know-”

“About the muffin on your desk? I mean- muffin- did I say muffin?” Derek just raised his eyebrow. “Ok! I brought it for you as sort of a ‘yay, you didn’t get fired’,” Stiles said twirling his finger around a little bit. “It’s fresh. Scott and I made it this morning.”

“Scott… McCall, right?” Derek asked. “Your boyfriend?” Stiles shrugged with his whole body knowing it was more complicated than that.
