Things are going pretty well!

- I mentioned some trouble with my bff under f-lock, but he hasn't hinted at any issues, so that's good. 

- I also got sucked back into Game of Thrones this season—not in a fic/meta way, but in a reading lots of fic and reblogging things way

- Suppressing the urge to respond to every 'yeah pretty much except *quibble*' to a LOK post with NO YOU'RE WRONG THIS IS WHY. But I stand by my opinion that a) Korra was completely justified in her anger at Tonraq and Tenzin in S2, b) Korra was completely unjustified in her treatment of Mako at the same time, c) lighting unarmed people on fire is always morally dubious, d) LOK fandom was absurdly awful in their interpretations of S1-S2, and e) a lot of that came down to ill-advised pacing and structure in those seasons. WE WILL NEVER AGREE ABOUT THIS THERE IS NO POINT. 

- I followed a long-time supportive follower who turns out to be into a lot of the same things and also a SJ person taking on the extremes of SJ Tumblr. She reblogs and writes a lot of anti-gatekeeping, so I've ended up reading and appreciating those, but it also introduced me to the fuckery of 'SGA' rhetoric, which as an ace lesbian raised Mormon is ... not a trigger per se, but certainly viscerally repulsive. So I've ranted about that a bit. I'm honestly very, very relieved that everyone I know (and some I don't) have been supportive about it because THE FUCK???? (I'm also annoyed as a quietly androgynous person, but the Actual Conversion Therapy Term component kiiiinda overwhelms everything else.)

- Practicing my Spanish on Duolingo, this involves occasional screaming. LOOK LA AMO IS COMPLETELY LEGIT.

- istg I will finish the already-late chapter of my longfic (we get dark, only to shine, my Very Problematic and yet also very pretentious Borgias fic)

I ranted about Han's skeeviness in ESB for yesterday, so I'm doing the unpopular opinions today! Though probably not for every conceivable fandom.

And [personal profile] tree just reminded me that I have been slacking on my mission to spread memes like a bacterial outbreak, so here are some proper ones.

Maybe I should just have hatred empowers us as a tag.

It’s rather awkward when you run across conversations you’d really like to be involved in but … you aren’t, and even if it wouldn’t be inappropriate to butt in, it feels sort of pointless. So I’m just going to be passive-aggressive and declare this

Oh look, another acewank. Fail on both sides this time, hurrah, and the strangely inevitable discussions with non-asexuals taking it upon themselves to define asexuality for reals, and some aces rushing in to cry 'but we're not the bad ones!' while others try to take epic levels in douchebaggery, and something about how how non-asexual people are really just like demis. Apparently, non-asexual people customarily feel no sexual attraction whatsoever until they're well into a relationship. Uh, the more you know, I guess.

There's a cool-looking fic meme (that maybe two people will respond to, heh), but... I actually need to write, so I'm not going to do it yet. However, gdocs is down, so I'll do another with a clear conscience.

I'm way behind on my replies, but eh, whatever. At least I'm nearly done with 10, which has been a sloooow chapter. Though it sped up about the time that that Luke saved himself from the flesh-eating beetles. (It makes sense in context.)

(Maybe.)

So, a bunch of memes before I finish up 10 and head straight into 11, which I probably won't have cause to answer, but ... meh. (At the moment, that's rather my response to anything. *eyes posting date*)

I hardly wrote at all, but it was still a fabulous day. I'm on vacation! I bet everyone at Wii Tennis! And unlocked the Lightning Cup! And played with my two thinly-veiled Lucy!toons. Also, I got the final draft of my chapter back from my writing professor, and it was ... a little overwhelming, but amazing.

yay for today! )

I've planned out the rest of Ch 10 -- if all goes well, I should be getting towards the end of the story soon. I've already written the final chapter, so yaaaaaay.

I found a Harry Potter and a Jane Austen 30 Day meme. I know what I'll be doing when this is over!

In other news, I finished the damn essay (synthesis of Northanger Abbey, The Monk, and The Others -- yes, I chose that particular combination) thanks in large degree to [personal profile] hl  for rewatching The Others with me, prodding me with sprints, and generally being awesome. Also finished Ch 9 of Revenge and I'm 400 words into 10, which will hopefully bring Luke and Leia to the same planet for once. Telepathy just isn't the same! I think I actually have some hope of getting this in on time. Hey, even First Impressions was a day late.

Also, [personal profile] hl  and I are going to watch Avatar: the Last Airbender at some point, because she hasn't seen it and I'm always up for rewatching and it will be amazing. I just rewatched The Southern Air Temple today and ;_; but wow, gorgeous. And Jason Isaac's voice will do just fine until we get Mark Hamill's. (QOM!Luke's students make a concerted enough to never anger him, ever, just so he won't use THE VOICE on them. The voice that sounds just like Fire Lord Ozai. The Organa twins are quite well-behaved around him, too. Lyra, on the other hand, doesn't much care. Probably because she sounds just like Azula. :P)

The request was:

mmm...my first thought was to ask for non-related!Luke and Leia BUT...I think I'll probably get plenty of that when you publish Revenge. So....how about Padme and her newborn twins? Stick with as much or as little canon as you want. ;)

Heh, you'll have to wait and see about Revenge. But here, have some AU Padmé and the twins, inspired by our recent discussion about their separation. Er, warning for issues with Obi-Wan and Yoda in ROTS.

Wow, Day 15. Awesome. Now if I just managed to get my final assignments into my English class (or, ah, wrote them), everything would be lovely. On the upside, hele and I are going to have a spectacular writing day, and my artist's fanmix looks super cool.

So, I started this intending to talk about the ... irregular circumstances surrounding the guardianship of the Skywalker twins. It mostly just became this incoherent rant about how much Yoda taking command of the twins bothers me. And is probably character-bashing (and maybe PT bashing?), so consider yourself warned.

Well, I managed to keep up for ten days, anyway. And besides, it's not my fault that lj was down last night so it didn't matter that I forgot about it.

Anyway, good thing in Random Updates About Elizabeth's LifeRead more... )

#wrote an original short story (of sorts) for class in the last eighteen hours
#could have chosen an easier prompt, but those asked me to talk about myself
#boring
#that's what lj is for
#like everything I write, the ending was kind of dull and abrupt
#it was a duel with a zombie snake
#probably too HPish
#have to write the rough draft of the first chapter of a YA novel by 9 AM Wednesday
#Revenge just hit 24k
#there are at least four more chapters
#and three for Lucy
#am starting to feel a little tired of writing
#but in a good way
#just realized I have to read the next novel for other class
#it's Northanger Abbey thank you God

Finished Ch 7 of Revenge, aka the Department of Backstory - it's really solidified this as equally a PT AU/alternate canon story. Anyway, time for my unpopular opinion of the day, on family resemblance among the Skywalkers.

Am I seriously the only person who thinks this? )

2011, apparently, is the year for acewank; there have been a number of other explosions on the asexuality tag at tumblr, most of which I didn’t feel any need to address at length. To explain sum up: no matter how often you call me straight, that will never make it true, usage =/= etymology, and sexual people do not have the right to decide who belongs in the asexual community.

The newest wank was precipitated by none other than that exemplar of open-minded activism, Dan Savage.
