I have 26 tabs open in my browser awaiting some action on my part. I need to clear the decks so I can run updates on my PC. In theory, I could use session-saver, but it will reopen my DW tabs without logging me in, and DW doesn't redirect when that happens. So, deck clearance. Please prepare for incoming spam (sorry).

A very cool meta discussion here by [personal profile] seperis on the Star Trek Reboot. There's lots to think about in this post, and I don't have time right now, so this is mostly me bookmarking for future consideration.

I've never considered myself a feminist. I've also never considered my gender to be any barrier to getting what I want out of life, but I would never call myself a feminist. I have nothing against men, collectively or individually, and believe firmly in the principle of treating a person as a person, with no initial bias.

Which is why I, like so many in the comments here, find this radical feminist post hysterically funny.

Many thanks to [insanejournal.com profile] elfwreck for linking the post, so we can all point and laugh :D

Two recs and a meta link today:

First rec is another offering from [insanejournal.com profile] lomonaaeren, who is climbing steadily higher on my all-time favourite authors list. Her latest tale, A Reckless Frame of Mind (IJ or here for LJ) is preslash, elegantly written and with great emotional intensity. I believe a sequel is planned and I'm already eagerly awaiting it.

Second up is crack!fic from the lovely [insanejournal.com profile] eeyore9990. I got to the last line of this and nearly died of the giggles. I prudently decided not to explain the hysterics to my long-suffering boyfriend who, I think, would not have appreciated the story the way I did. Ahem...

Finally, some discourse on the fragmentation of fandom caused by Boldthrough, and why it could actually be a good thing for fandom, from [insanejournal.com profile] femmequixotic. I have to agree with her; I've made so many more posts since I moved to IJ because I want to actively promote fandom on this site, and get things moving again. And that can only be a good thing, no?

Gah! Too many fics, not enough time!!!

I have this entire folder in my bookmarks of fics I keep meaning to rec, but I always want to read just one more fic before bed, and then I don't have time to post my recs.

Maybe I should schedule reccing in my diary... Hah! As if I'd ever stick to that when there are fests on.

Gah! Curse Real Life for interfering with my fanfic habit!

Some random meta musings:

  1. I know fanon!Dean is an artist. I've seen very few fics where he's anything but an artist. But is there any supporting canon for his vocation? Where did the concept originate from?

  2. I am a grammar and spelling Nazi. To the extent that I won't actually read a fic that has a typo or poor phraseology in the summary. Am I saving myself from grammatical torture or am I cheating myself out of some good fics?

  3. I really need to get on with reccing some stuff. I have a bookmarks list a mile long but I seem to spend all my time reading the fics and no time telling anyone about them. Yes, I know I'm rubbish! But I'm also reading a ton of WiPs right now, and I hate reccing WiPs, just in case they don't get finished or there's 6-month intervals between updates...

Meandering waffle on my RL - feel free to ignore )

Something that's bothered me since I started reading HP fanfic is House Point Inflation.

On House Points... )
