anghraine: from the 2005 p&p: darcy standing at a piano while georgiana plays it (vader [grievances])
When I wrote last year's au_bigbangs, I vaguely referred to two other fandoms within the stories - for the lulz! - and then amused myself by stuffing as many references to as many others of mine as I could shove in. I always meant to do a proper attribution post, but just ... forgot. But now I've remembered! So here they are. (The citations are in white, so feel free to guess if it amuses you.)

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.

I keep running across a not-quite-trope -- an argument -- that I find immensely problematic. I'm going to talk about it now, through my own feminism, which may not be yours. Consider yourself warned for that, along with discussions of violence and sexual assault.

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

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*)

Okay, maybe not quite afternoon. Anyway.

Oh! There was an interesting essay on Slave Leia here. I pretty much agree on the in-story level, and completely disagree on the meta-level; I think it's gratuitous fanservice, its use of valuable screentime shortchanges other plotlines (most notably the Vader-Luke one which is kind of the main point), the blatant male gaze-iness makes it uncomfortable for me to even watch, and Carrie Fisher's forced weight loss makes it still worse. And ... well, I won't bother recapping, since I covered all my feelings on it in this essay. So I do think Fangirl gave the men who came up with that sequence way too much credit.

Back to meming!

I think I may have escaped meditation class.  I begged the psychology of women prof to let me into her course, and she's like "you're a senior and your class got cancelled after the freshmen had signed up?  ALL RIGHT THEN."  Yay for awesome profs!  Then I discovered the heckyeahlukeskywalker tumblr and I seem to have somehow lost about five hours.

When I first started planning out the Revenge of the Jedi universe, I was thrilled at all the possibilities.  I still am, really.  But it's a lot complicated now that I've given it some more thought.

Crazy midterms are crazy. I've read Orlando and Wide Sargasso Sea in the last three days and far prefer the latter. It has no genderswapping (that was awesome), but it doesn't snap my suspension of disbelief either. So!

The first is more Narniafic, because the recent post inspired even more Cor/Aravis love, and my brain started coming up with excuses for more Adventures in Calormen.  Hey, Rabadash the Ridiculous Peacemaker will be making all sorts of friendly overtures.  Diplomatic missions!  And, and things.  So, Lasaraleen and Aravis and hints of Cor/Aravis fluff, but also the darker side of things too because it's creepier to leave them out.

---------------------------

Title: Reunion

Fanverse: canon-compliant

Blurb: At nineteen, Lasaraleen meets Aravis again.

Pairings/warnings: casual attitudes to slavery and race

A sign that TV Tropes has ruined your life:

You learn your Spanish verb for the day, empeorar, and your first thought is, "isn't there a TV Tropes page for that?"

There is.

(TV Tropes warning.)

Anyway, there's not enough The Horse and His Boy fic out there -- I don't think there's even fix-fic (and it's not like, ah, certain passages couldn't use some).  So, HHB fluff!

Blurb: The Archenlanders have a few misgivings about Cor and Aravis.

But for that, I'd want a The Horse and His Boy adaptation, and I don't know how they'd make it less than horrifically offensive.

Anyway. Awhile back, I rewatched Prince Caspian -- look, I don't know why I do these things to myself, except that I love Edmund and ninja!Edmund makes me happy. Seriously, it's like a bunch of people realised that he'd been the Dragon all last movie and wanted to make very, very sure nobody missed that whole 'reformation' business. HEY GAIZ DON'T FORGET HE'S NOT A BAD KID ANYMORE. Um, how do we make them remember ... SEE, HE'S A NINJA FOR JE ASLAN!

Because obviously what Aslan needs is moar ninjas.

Yeah. I don't really care for it. (BUT EDMUND. <3)

Awhile back, I read a rather ... hm, peculiar essay on Pride and Prejudice. (Yes, I know. Shocking.) It argued that P&P's conclusion is sekritly subversive and anti-establishment and blah blah blah. This is nothing new, but the essay in question based its argument on the 'fact' that the last words of the book are about the many inconveniences in Darcy and Elizabeth's lives, rather than the 'happily ever after' that the misguided romantics may be expecting.

(In actuality, the last two lines of P&P are as follows: 

With the Gardiners, they were always on the most intimate terms. Darcy, as well as Elizabeth, really loved them; and they were both ever sensible of the warmest gratitude towards the persons who, by bringing her into Derbyshire, had been the means of uniting them.

I know.  It's so edgy.)

(2)  Booth/Brennan, Bones

(3)  Anne/Gilbert, Anne of Green Gables

(4)  Cor/Aravis, Narnia

three pairings I like:

(7)  William the Conqueror/Matilda of Flanders, RL

(8)  Colonel Fitzwilliam/Mary Crawford, Pride and Prejudice/Mansfield Park

(9)  James/Lily, Harry Potter

20 questions (actually eighteen?) )
