swatkat: wonder woman in the hiketeia (dcu: diana is always on top)
I owe people comments. I will get on that shortly - things have been... disorienting. Yesterday I traveled halfway across the city early in the morning just to cater to my paranoia (I did get a lift from a generous friend, but nonetheless). *facepalm* The heat, I think, is slowly melting my brain.

Thoughts on Lois Lane's place in the DCU, which then veers on to a fascinating discussion about Steve Trevor as well. The discussion continues here. I'm lacking in brain cells at the moment so I have nothing insightful to offer, but as a fan who is mostly apathetic towards Steve Trevor's presence in Diana's life, this is a great read:


In the 40s, in the middle of wartime, there would be scenes with General Darnell, Colonel Trevor and other high-ranking military officers standing around listening to Wonder Woman’s ideas. That in itself is amazing. What is even more amazing is when you stop to think that she is the girlfriend of one of these officers, and she is not being written off and he has no problem whatsoever with his girlfriend being better at his job than he is.

And that’s why we still need him in the narrative, because even today we have parts written out of movies because they feel an action heroine saving her husband emasculates him. With Steve we have a guy who is uniformly happy with being outmatched in the “manly ways” by not just a woman but a woman he’s involved with, and retains a traditionally masculine demeanor. This is pretty much the only character who plays this role to a heroine of iconic status, and it is a tragedy we never got to see him developed in the modern-story-telling line as we did Lois Lane.


I caught up on Wonder Woman after a couple of months separation, and spoilers ) It's a good thing the previews for the next issue are up because I cannot wait, Tony Akins art notwithstanding (GUESS WHO IS IN THE PREVIEW? ♥♥♥).

[personal profile] hibernate has a Myka/HG recs post that looks utterly fabulous. I haven't read all of them yet, but there's this one story I insist all W13 fans read at once:

Perhaps not to be by [profile] ladyshinkicker. Long post-S3 not-fix-it. In fact, it's so far from being a fix it that it will break your heart into tiny little pieces and then stomp all over them, grinding them into dust. It's also the best HG I've read.

For as long as Helena still exists, there is a chance that she will find the artefact, or perfect her time machine, or find some other way to save her daughter: knowing this is not hope. Knowing this is to count every passing second as another one in which Christina is in danger, waiting to be saved. Knowing this is to spend every moment without Christina cursing her failure as a parent, because Christina is still in danger, because at a point in time Helena believes she may still access, her daughter is dying, and Helena doesn’t know how to save her. And if there is the slightest chance, however remote, that she can change the rules of linear temporality itself, Helena will do so because there still exists a time in which her daughter is alive and that means she can still be saved.

I was re-reading Batgirl #24, and god, I hope someday I'm able to revisit this series without getting a little teary-eyed because this was, for about the course of the fifteen months or so when I followed the title every month, my #1 pick-me-up, the one thing that never failed to cheer me up. I do not know how Stephanie Brown replaced Barbara Gordon as the Batgirl of my heart, except that I now think of the DCnU and realise that Barbara's Robin is now Damian, and a part of my heart just shrivels up and dies.

It is a difficult time to be a Bat-fan, in some ways—Snyder's Batman might be on fire, but for those of us who had fallen in love with a particular set of characters and relationships in a status quo that was never going to last (I realise now, reboot or no), and who are, perhaps, less used to reboots/cancellations/resurrections the way long-term comics fans undoubtedly are, the Batverse doesn't feel like our Batverse anymore. Barbara's Robin is Damian and Damian's Batman is Bruce and Stephanie and Cassandra are god knows where, and that is very, very painful. Equally painful is the knowledge the Black Canary and Oracle, as I knew them, were probably never friends that way, or that Huntress, as I knew her, no longer exists. It's only the end if you want it to be notwithstanding, fandom is hard.

It's also a difficult time to be a Barbara fan, in some ways—because I am, Barbara's girl through and through, and even the loss of Oracle won't change that, even if I despair over how much they have erased along with it. Apart from Wonder Woman, Barbara is the only female character of the DCU to have any sort of legacy, and it isn't coincidental that both Diana and Barbara's legacy's have been severely affected in the DCnU—with the erasure of Donna Troy, with the seeming disappearance of Diana's supporting cast (even STRIFE—yes, I refer to her in ALLCAPS now—cannot make up for the loss of Phillipus or Artemis), with the erasure/benching of all the three women who wore the Batgirl suit after Barbara, with the re-writing of the history of the Birds of Prey (from what we've seen of it).

It was, therefore, a bit of a surprise when I finally picked up the new Birds of Prey and found myself enjoying it tremendously: spoilers till BoP #5 )

I will also admit to shamelessly shipping Dinah/Evelyn. The subtext is certainly there, and while I was earlier held back by my Babs/Dinah OTPness, I've now come to accept the fact that Barbara and Dinah as I knew them don't exist anymore. (This is not to say I won't ship Babs and Dinah once more once we get to know these characters a little better, note.)

Wonder Woman, of course, has been an utter joy—despite my various misgivings, I've enjoyed the title thoroughly. spoilers for Wonder Woman #5 )

PS: DIANA'S GUN SHOOTS LOVE BULLETS, YOUR ARGUMENTS ARE INVALID.

I'm not sure I'm going to finish reading the Huntress mini right now. I thought I was reading about my Huntress, and I wasn't—I feel a little cheated to be honest. This will, of course, change if the new book is good and I grow to like Helena Wayne, but right now I need some time to mourn the Huntress I loved.

[personal profile] netgirl_y2k has written fabulous DVD commentaries of Like a Fish Needs a Bicycle (Morgana/many female characters) and Walk Softly and Carry a Large Stick (Cara/Kahlan), with wonderful insights into the characters that you should run to read right now. Or read the stories first, if you haven't already.

High D'Haran Love Poetry by [personal profile] nike_ravus (Legend of the Seeker, Berdine/Raina): This is not a pairing I normally read, because I don't care about the bookverse and I don't know the characters at all, but the writer introduces them as 'their TV-show version incarnations. These are the girls who would hang out with our Cara and (sometimes) put up with her shit', which is really all I needed to know. At 20K words, it's a sharp, intriguing - and at times disconcerting - look at the world of the Mord'Sith, and a consideration of the eternal problem: "How do Mord'Sith fall in love? No really, how?" Read this right now, and go shower your love upon the author so that she writes more stories in this fandom.

+ I watched the Utena movie, which I think makes perfect sense if you treat it as a direct sequel to the anime—as Utena's fever dream, which Anthy helps her rescue herself from. I have no idea why Juri hits on Miki in it, however, although I must say that if Juri ever were to consider dating boys Miki is the first person I'd ship her with. Also, a TRAGIC lack of Nanami in the movie—TRAGIC and UNPARDONABLE, because Nanami is the best and my favourite (well, apart from Utena herself. And Juri). Nanami is the Queen Cordy to Utena's Buffy, the comic mirror and the tragic foil, and the ONLY other character who gets an arc that long (even if some of them are filler episodes—but the Nanami filler episodes are the best, Cowbells of Happiness is probably my favourite episode in the entire show apart from the finale itself).

+ It occurs to me that a lot of the problems in the Merlinverse would be solved if someone introduced Morgana to Utena, who could tell her that her that she doesn't have to be either a Princess or a Witch.

+ In a recent Newsrama interview, Brian Azzarello said:

Azzarello: Of course not. I don’t care. It’s not important to the story. Listen, if it were my choice? She’d be wearing that skirt!

Nrama: Wait a minute. Is that a hint? Why the skirt?

Azzarello: Because it looks good! Like her original costume? I think that’s great.


This is a man after my own heart. Also, guh, have you SEEN Cliff Chiang's pages from Wonder Woman #2?

image under cut )

That flirty smile? That's the Diana we know and love, the one I dearly miss. I want her back now. *grabby hands*

I also approve of Diana gaining her own Gabrielle, since the Wonder Girls seem to be off-limits in the main Wonder Woman book for reasons incomprehensible to me.

+ The Ivy Crown by [personal profile] briar_pipe, Merlin, Gwen/Morgana, ~75,000 words, "Late one night, several prisoners escape from the dungeon, Arthur disappears, and fate takes a left turn. Morgana and Gwen are dragged along into a new world of intrigue, magic, and war." This is the kind of Gwen/Morgana I've always wanted to read - long and absorbing, with an absolutely fabulous warrior queen!Morgana.

Archimage by Jude, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Utena/Anthy, ~140,000 words, "What happened to Utena after the end of the series?". Epic post-anime story, featuring the entire cast and doing justice to ALL of them while weaving a twisty tale that would make the creators of the anime proud. PS: GROWN-UP POLICE OFFICER!JURI FTW!!!1!

Roses Grow by sharnii, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Utena/Anthy, novel length. Wonderful post-anime story featuring the entire cast, with romance, intrigue and surrealism. It also has a sequel in progress featuring a fantastic Anthy voice.

Last night I stayed up to watch the Champions League final. Having no stake in either team - unlike a lot of other people in my FB feed (so much cursing) - I opted to root for the more aesthetically pleasing side, which, of course, worked out very well for me. Messi is pretty and has magic feet. (They were also clearly the better side.)

A little while ago, I finally picked up my copy of A Case of Exploding Mangoes by Mohammad Hanif, after owning it for months but never quite getting around to reading it (Wolf Hall will have to wait, the Thomases were very confusing). Halfway through the book I told [profile] zorana84, 'This is the slashiest book I've read of late.'

'Oh, is it?' she said. 'Sounds interesting.'

Do I have your attention? )

+

While we're on the topic of recs, I also have a couple more - fan fiction, this time. My Opinions on Glee can be summed up by 'I like Kurt', 'some of the songs are nice', and 'Santana is the best'; my viewing is, at best, sporadic. That does not explain why I wasted days reading Five Stages by thememoriesfire, and its two epic sequels, The Lights That Stop Me and Blind With Casualties.

Five Stages is about Santana - to quote the summary, "Santana deals with the coming out process; set after 2x16, "Original Song", and abandoning canon forever after that" - and it is MAGNIFICENT. It's so easy for stories in this vein to become preachy issuefic, but this is just perfect - raw, messed-up and glorious.

Apart from the three Santana-POV stories, this 'verse also has interludes featuring the other characters, and they're all great (although my favourite is Quinn).

If you read fic in this fandom at all, chances are you have already read it - but in case you haven't, go now. The power of Santana's ~feelings compels you.

The History of Being Wrong by [livejournal.com profile] maypirate. CTB/13 hatesex, post 4.09. Pls to go read now. If the pairing isn't enough to make you read it, think of Amber post-4.09 - think of her in the last scene, with the patient. And then go and read this fic. Her anger, her caring and not caring... Perfect. Not to mention hot.

Meanwhile, last night, instead of doing what I was supposed to do, I plotted a Foreman/Cuddy fic in my head where Foreman wants to know if Cuddy has ever been a man (there was a [livejournal.com profile] foreman_fest prompt like that). I didn't actually get around to the Foreman/Cuddy part, but it was fun. Yes, I know I have a fic to finish and the [livejournal.com profile] cuddy_fest deadline is technically over. Shut up.

*

Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] cuddy_fest: [livejournal.com profile] jaybee65 wrote Pirateverse fic! PIRATE QUEEN CUDDY. GOVERNOR'S DAUGHTER CAMERON.

If there's one thing Governor Cameron has taught his daughter Allison to do, it's to hold her head high. No matter what the circumstances.

She holds it high now, defiant and dignified, as she balances on the edge of the pitching ship's deck. She does her best to ignore the wretched man waving the cutlass around in her face, although she does manage to notice that he clutches a cane to steady himself on his wooden leg. If she kicks it out from under him, he'll topple right off the side of the deck and plunge into the sea. It's tempting, except that alas, she's far too kind to do such a thing. Even a ruffian pirate with a scraggly growth of beard and a suspicious scent of rum on his breath deserves compassion, after all. He probably grew up in poverty, she imagines, his mother an alcoholic barmaid and his father a brutish laborer. He turned to a life of crime after his leg was mangled by a carriage as he begged as a child on the streets, or no, maybe in the war, fighting valiantly but ultimately succumbing to gangrene because of the buckshot he took to save the life of his commanding officer. Yes, she likes that version better. A poor, forgotten veteran, fallen on hard times. So tragic, really!


The Pirate Queen and the Governor's Daughter WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Go read!

I just watched 'Que Sera Sera'. And I remembered running into an insane amount of 'CAMERON HAS BULIMIA OMG' stories in ff.net yesterday. So - I point you to a couple of stories on the same theme that actually worked for me:

* Consume, by [livejournal.com profile] modernsaints. Featuring a scarily well-done Cameron. And did I mention what the theme was? Yes? Good.

* Loss of Appetite, by [livejournal.com profile] hi_falootin. Chase. I *did* mention the theme above, right?
swatkat: knight - er, morgana - in shining underwear (internet porn)
+ this body of wonder and uncertainty by [livejournal.com profile] quasiradiant, Cuddy/Cameron. I never saw it when the author first posted it - but this? Is so gorgeous. First season Cuddy/Cameron. The author takes time to build it up, and the product is lovely - I love the hesitation and the tension and the Cuddy (oh, the Cuddy!). Go and read now!

+ warmer than warm by [livejournal.com profile] zauberer_sirin, House/Cuddy. I've been meaning to point you all to this - it's House and Cuddy, trying their hand at a relationship, and not doing very well with it. It's a great, satisfying read, and I do love her style. Also, great cameo by Wilson, who as far as I'm concerned, has the best scene in the entire fic.
swatkat: knight - er, morgana - in shining underwear (bitch)
More people should be reading Lilacs Out of the Dead Land by [livejournal.com profile] modernsaints (House/Cameron/Cuddy). It's Cuddy as you've never seen her - the summary says it all: "Cuddy's job is, essentially, to manipulate. And she's very, very good at that - especially when it's the only way to get what she wants." The threesome dynamic is well done and disturbing, as is the entire story.
swatkat: knight - er, morgana - in shining underwear (plane)
Education is disturbing. Good professors are even more so. Nothing, absolutely nothing is sacred in this world.

But that said, RL has been good to me. The past two weeks have been a blur - late nights, traveling, occasionally not-boring conferences, really bad poetry sessions (which made me write a poem in retaliation. and i never write poetry. it's a one time thing), more late nights, freezing (although it will be spring soon), and occasional angsting over which course to choose when there's so much to do. And if that isn't enough, I got fic written for me!

I asked [livejournal.com profile] ijemanja for House/Cuddy, and she wrote me this: Past Time, which is an absolutely amazing futurefic. I worship everything she writes, and this is sad and moody and strangely hopeful. Just beautiful. Read it now.

And because I haven't pointed you to this in the past (which was very wrong on my part), the fic [livejournal.com profile] queenzulu wrote for my prompt: Five Times Cuddy Didn't Sleep With House, and it's companion fic I Saw Her At A Reception. It's House/Cuddy UST at it's best. At it's BEST - funny and snarky and so beautifully them. Words cannot express my love for these stories. Please read them now, and play the philosopher Jagger in the background.

* If House 3.04 had been a f_w post. Spoilers, obviously. This, ladies and gentlemen, is why I love fandom_wank so.

* Like, Totally! by [livejournal.com profile] ijemanja. Ali/Cuddy. Yes, that would be right - THE Ali. The jailbait from the last two episodes. I HEART this fic. (sekrit note to [livejournal.com profile] hihoplastic: keep up the good work) And for the record, cut for spoilers )

+ Underappreciated Cuddy/Cameron fic here: Oversight by [livejournal.com profile] recrudescence. Great characterisations, hot sex. Pls to go and appreciate now, because the fandom desperately needs good f/f, and Cuddyfic in general.

+ Look at Lisa Edelstein OMG! *is dead of hot*

+ I spent two and half hours in class today discussing gay subtext in plays.

There was a very surreal moment when the prof, trying to get a rather taciturn girl to speak, pointed dramatically towards me and said: 'No, tell me what would be *your* happy ending of the play (Look Back in Anger). I know *her* (meaning, me) happy ending would be Alison and Helena going off together and leaving happily ever after.' I almost blurted, 'How did you know?', because yes, I *have* been slashing them together (and Jimmy/Cliff, who are so very gay. but I do heart Jimmy/Helena as well, and Jimmy/Alison/Helena) in my mind ever since I first read the play.

I think I'm in heaven.

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide is up, as is Secret Slasha. *squee*

Another Drink Seinfeld fic. Absolutely, utterly perfect Seinfeld fic. *dies laughing*

It's entirely possible this is the worst party Elaine has ever been to. Any party where the bulk of the evening is spent talking to George is by definition a bad party. You never know who you might pick up at a party, but it's hard to imagine anyone being worse than George

Mischief. Mayhem. Soap. I'm glad glad glad that LFN qualifies for Yuletide, because this? Is perfect.

Birkoff was in the middle of the last stage of Final Fantasy 7, utterly kicking the ass of the boss, when his intercom beeped. Briefly, he considered throwing the controller at it and then, thinking better of that one, he grabbed a rolled up pair of dirty socks and threw those instead. He was getting sick of trying to explain to Madeline how he'd wrecked yet another controller anyway and he suspected she knew exactly how controllers two, four, five, and seven had died.

*

I was going through the Secret Slasha entries, thinking 'There's *Buffy/Dawn* (I still have some squicks left. This is one of them), and no Buffy/Faith?' I was wrong, of course, because there is one - and what a story it is!

There is No Revolution without Boots and Song Post-NFA Buffy/Faith. Words cannot express how much I love this story - the narration, the pitch-perfect Buffy voice, the characterisations... I wish there was a way to send feedback right now. *happy sigh*

Angel's gone, Spike's gone, and Buffy and Faith are the only ones really mourning. That's what Buffy tells herself. At least for Angel, anyway. Buffy and Andrew are the only ones really mourning Spike. That would totally bum Spike out. Maybe. She's losing touch with how either of them would react.


*goes off to read all the Wonderfalls stories*

ETA:

Innocent as a Rose The Sound of Music. Liesl, far away from home.

Even in Austria, the Von Trapps were always more Austrian than anyone else. Now, in America, it seems they are to be Austrian to earn their bread. But it is more than that: Father seems to have decided that it is his family, and his family alone, that will keep Austria alive long after Anschlüss has closed the country to the outside world.

Nice Things There should be more Mahandra/Aaron in the world.

Maybe there had been times, back in high school, that had involved Mahandra imagining being admitted to Jaye's hospital room to find her sitting up in a smock with a baby in her arms, but those had been inspired mostly by overexposure to after-school specials and in part by watching Jaye leave pool parties to sneak into the cabana with Francis Holyoke. And Brad Troy. And Danny Succonetti.

ETA 2:

Been Put Back the Right Way Round One Tree Hill, Brooke/Peyton. Brooke and Peyton are on a guy break. Lovely, lovely best friends turning into something more story.

Naturally, she told Peyton first, when they met in the parking lot at school. "I've decided, P. Sawyer. No boy is good enough for me. At least for a while, anyway. I'm washing my hands of it. I'm hot, I'm great, I'm Brooke, I'm right about this. I may be right about everything."

Every Good Girl Does Fine Oh. Oh. Peanuts fic! Marcie/Patty in highschool fic! This is just so *amazing*. There should be more fic like this for those of us who can't go and see Eliza Dushku and Ian Somerhalder in Dog Sees God. *sniff*

"But these are our times -- our glory days! This year, Marcie, we could bat a thousand if we wanted."

Marcie squints behind her glasses. She says, "Well, I'm excited, sir."

For what it's worth, the sun seems to shine brighter than yesterday.


And now, off to bed.

Dear Fandom,

When I read the Narnia books all those years ago and fell in love with the world and the characters, I had no idea that I ship Peter/Susan. Thank you for showing me the light.

Love,
Swatkat

Practical by [livejournal.com profile] musesfool (Peter/Susan implied, Lucy) God, this fic is so *gorgeous* and heartbreaking. *So* gorgeous. The Lucy POV is perfect, and touches me in a way I can’t explain. Read, and cry.

Boys and Lipsticks (Susan)
Delight (Edmund)
Through the Doors (Peter)
What She Found There (Lucy)

by [livejournal.com profile] sloanesomething (Peter/Susan, Edmund/White Witch, Lucy/Tumnus)

The characterisations in these stories are unlike anything I've ever read in Narnia, and you know what? They work. It's surprisingly dark, and after you're done reading you realise that that's the way it should be. Fairy tales are never as fluffy as they appear to be. Heartbreaking and beautiful in a shivery sort of way.

Sawyer rec for [livejournal.com profile] catsma:In the Wild by [livejournal.com profile] mayatawi Set early in the series, and *very* dark, with potentially upsetting themes (but you're not fazed by that, yes?). Read it just for the Sawyer POV.

And a meme, because [livejournal.com profile] msgenevieve tagged me. *g*

THE RULES:
List five songs that you currently love. It doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now.

Then tag five other Livejournal friends to see what they're listening to.

1. Woh lamhe - Jal
2. Raat hamaari toh - Parineeta
3. I just want you to know - Backstreet Boys
4. Kajra Re - Bunty aur Babli
5. Dhire jalna - Paheli

[livejournal.com profile] jaybee65 (and everyone else who reads HP and hasn't read this fic), go read this fic at once:The Well-Ordered Mind by [livejournal.com profile] garlandgraves. It's only rarely that you come across a good Dumbledore POV, and this? Is easily the best Dumbledore I've read in fic. We think he's creepy and crazy and twisted because we don't really get him, can't understand the way he finds the smallest things enchanting. This is him, Dumbledore, brilliant and beautiful and human, and the greatest Wizard in the world.

If you're in the mood for some LFN (no, not those of you in the fandom - I know you've read it already *g*), go read this little ficlet by [livejournal.com profile] msgenevieve, and weep at the sheer brilliance of it all:Domesticity. This is it. This is why I loved the show.

*

And if anyone needed one more proof of why [livejournal.com profile] jaybee65 is the best, this is why. This was getting lost amidst all the comments in that post, which is a shame. Read. Laugh. And pester her to write an entire fic out of it. *g*
