when you knock me down

I did this meme every year for a decade. Then, for no particular reason, I skipped last year. It had been a big couple of months for me and I just wanted to rest. Too bad, though, since I had the perfect "song that sums up your year" picked out, as I often do think about what my answers will be to this survey as the year rolls along.

That 2014 song:

I wish every holiday only took an hour
that I'm not just like the people I resent
I wish one day I could truly be empowered
to say exactly what it is I meant

all I have -- it's in abundance --
is my perpetual redundance
it's hard for me to say
I face it every day

learn it all again tomorrow
learn it all again tomorrow

- Ben and Ellen Harper, Learn It All Again Tomorrow

And I did.

Steven Quartz Universe is a good kid you should get to know

Hello! Do you like... CARTOONS? How about shoujo and shounen? Old school video games? Adventure Time? Stories that make you feel warm inside? Good news! Steven Universe exists, and you get to watch it.

Steven Universe is a short-format cartoon created by Rebecca Sugar, who formerly storyboarded many of the best and most musical episodes of Adventure Time (Marceline just isn't the same without her). Like AT, it airs in 11 minute episodes on Cartoon Network and is artist driven, meaning the same person storyboards the art and writes the dialogue. It is, however, an unrelated show with a completely different vibe. While Adventure Time has an obvious dark side and deals in post-apocalyptic absurdity, Steven Universe is more goofy than absurd and has a lot more hope to it, which makes it feel younger and fluffier. But while Adventure Time's backstory and mytharc has slowly trickled in over two hundred episodes, Steven Universe is deceptively plotty -- even when it doesn't seem that way. There is a fascinating, emotional, and suspenseful story being told in perfect puzzle pieces, making it the show I am now most excited to watch each week for what new revelations will follow. Currently there are just over 40 episodes, with dozens more coming down the pipe.

"He pushed me to be really honest and to write cartoons like they're poetry."

- Rebecca Sugar on working with Pendleton Ward

So You Want to Catch Up on Korra: a brief guide

As you may have heard, The Legend of Korra ended this week with a pretty exceptional move. I had stopped watching after hating the first season finale, but caught up a few months ago when I saw friends praising the improvements of season three. That meant I watched all of season four as it "aired" (Nick pulled the show from actual television broadcast several months ago, for reasons I now suspect had to do with the finale storyboards, and moved it all online) and got to experience this surprise ending unspoiled in the wee hours of Friday morning. Since then I've seen a lot of people asking if they should catch up because they too stopped watching during or after season one, and I am here to offer my opinion: YES! But not just for the finale. If your only interest is in Korrasami, tumblr's got you covered.

If you would actually like to watch and enjoy the show, here's what I recommend. IMHO, YMMV, &c.
I will keep this as spoiler-free as possible, but some summarizing is required. )

If your network agrees with it, all of season four can currently be viewed in free high def on Nick's site. or may also be of help :)

P.S. By the way, this isn't the first episode guide I've made. Here's my Adventure Time episode guide, which is currently about 25 episodes behind, but for a show that has 178 episodes so far it could be worse (and should be updated very soon). It's a spreadsheet, but was designed to be used with filtered criteria, back when Google Docs still allowed "View as List". Now that Google Sheets is the status quo, it can be filtered in a slightly different way. Click on any of the top cells and then in the top navigation bar with all the icons, click on the funnel-shaped icon second from the right. This turns on filtering, so you can still select all Musicals that feature Marceline and have the list come up in four clicks. I'm not a regular nerd, I'm a cool nerd.

P.P.S. Semi-related to all of the above: I have a rather sedate and single-minded tumblr which is almost exclusively being used for my love of cartoons and illustration. I don't follow many people so as to keep my dash focused on the same kind of stuff I want to reblog, but feel free to follow if you like!

So 2014 is almost over I'm beginning to suspect. I watched some TV during this time. I also worked a lot, broke my thumb, got arthritis, went to physical therapy, went to emotional therapy, had surgery, applied and was accepted to university, traveled to California twice and Toronto and NY once each, reread all the Anne novels and for the first time ever completed my Goodreads challenge after discovering the magic of audiobooks, and watched at least five movies (two were about Captain America, and one was about these radical dames named Thelma and Louise!!!).

But mostly, it would appear, I watched TV. Almost all of it on my 13" Macbook pro, so precious and so wee. Some of it was the Giants winning their third championship in five years! And Timmy's second no-hitter!

The rest that I can recall is haphazardly documented below.

bee and puppycat

i know since you were little girls you dreamt of being in my world

[profile] synechdochic suggests we look back at what we've accomplished since March of 2007.

I turned 23 that month; I'm turning 30 this year. I lived at home and had never lived elsewhere 'cept for travel; I've since lived in Santa Rosa briefly (then home for twice as long), Sebastopol for a year and a half (then home again for twice as long), and now Pittsburgh for a year plus, and if you think this will eventually result in a refractory period back under my parents' roof let me tell u L O L. I've acknowledged, identified, and dealt with: my abusive family, my depression and anxiety disorders, my ADHD. I left one shitty school, flopped out of another (one and a half), applied and appealed to a third without result, and flirted with a fourth all with zero progress made towards a degree - but also with zero damage to my credit score or bank account, which as I face my thirties I am grateful for. I went through therapy and life coaching. I learned how to hold myself accountable. I lost Lucy, raised Rue, and adopted Minette. I quit one job, barely survived and came out with serious damage from another, temped my ass off while not unemploymenting my ass off, and was the very last holiday temp converted to perm at my current over-a-year job, where I'm currently valuabler than ever.

I went through the worst shit of my life and came out a fucking champion suffused with love, skill, self-knowledge, and gratitude. Beat that with a goddamn stick.

the yuletide letter even rich text editor couldn't defeat

Dear Yulegoat,

Hello, and thank you! Yuletide is a lot of effort and it means a great deal to me that you are spending such energy on me. With that in mind, I truly mean it when I say I hope you enjoy yourself first and foremost. My sincerest request is that you don't force it; use my prompts as jumping-off points, by all means, but I'd rather read a great story written with conviction that I wouldn't have expected than a mediocre story that checks off every box on my list.

As far as that list goes, I've repeated it most every year and you can find it in my previous letters in my tag, but honestly I feel okay skipping over it this time. The stories I like the best are those that are organic, emotionally truthful, and nuanced. The stories that I like the least are facile, gratuitously sentimental or edgy, without consequence or courage. I love plot - partly because I can't write it to save my life - but I also love character studies, absurd comedies, and lyricism (though not extremely opaque prose). Characterization, sense of place, and tone will always win me over. Also girls, gays, and friendship! What can I say? Secretly I'm easy. Just no mindwipes, please.

For your visual learning pleasure: a tumblr tag just for you! (It is not distributed in proportion to my interest in these fandoms.)

And now, my six prompts!







I hope this helps a bit! Again, if you are at any sort of a loss, my "yuletide!!!" tag has more, and really so does the rest of my journal. I am an open book with plenty of opinions, but at the end of the day I still want to see yours. Have fun and don't stress out too much <3

(still not loving police)


We make progress. We wrest it into being. Media is not passively received and interpreted, and there is no "representation" without the re - it is a reflexive, back and forth process. We are not given Thing That Is Progressive and are then moved along a square of the chessboard of equality by the invisible hand of the media. We spy and scrabble and steal from it things that were never intended or particularly well-executed to be bestowed. (Is that not what slash is? That is what slash is.) The author of fiction is, in general, dead; the author of fiction's real life ramifications was never born in the first place is, upon reflection, us.

After saying all that it seems a shame to narrow my scope down to a single fiction, but that was where this idea originated and it is a point I want to make -- but let's agree it's probably just one of many examples.

Star Trek: The Original Perfect Progressive Utopia never existed. That is not a show or movie that I have ever had the privilege of watching. Has it intended to portray a Perfect Progressive Utopia? Yes. Has it been progressive in some aspects in relation to some grave injustices of real life? Again, yes. I am glad for both of these yeses - they are a big part of why I love Star Trek. That still doesn't actually make the answer to the third question, which is the Jeopardy answer of that post, yes: Star Trek has been [up till now] so progressive that it's actually the destination to which progress aspires.

I could collect receipts for Star Trek's various injustices all day if I had it, but I don't so let's go with broad strokes. Nichelle Nichols wanting to quit. Denise Crosby actually did because she had nothing to do; Gates McFadden was fired for wanting better writing for her character; Marina Sirtis hated the Sexy Feelings Alien she was pigeonholed into and didn't get to wear a real Starfleet uniform for five seasons (and was mind raped in the very last Star Trek entry prior to the reboot). WHERE EVEN TO BEGIN re: racism -- played as alien parables -- experienced by real actors -- flaunted through the brownface of every major Klingon character save Worf and his brother Kurn (Alexander) (Martok and Gowron) (K'ehleyr). Ricardo Montalban: no more Indian than you know who. Basically every major Bashir storyline managed to be offensive in terms of race, disability, and/or his frankly skeezy-ass approach to women and consent. ~Commander~ Sisko. The continual and ever more conspicuous absence of queer people in space. And on, and on, and on, and on.

And yet.

Nichelle Nichols didn't quit -- not because of something Gene Roddenberry gave her, but because of a scrap of progress that Martin Luther King Jr. could envision. Mae Jemison went into space -- even though Uhura had next to nothing to do. Now she has more, and it's still not enough -- but Nyota Uhura is still not a white girl. All kinds of girls are still boldly going. On SCRAPS. Of course it's not fucking enough. Of course the whitewashing of Khan is inexplicable, knowingly offensive, and awful. But what the fuck else is new? People have been stealing scraps and building them into something better than Gene Roddenberry or Michael Piller ever imagined since 1966, and it's no different now with JJ Abrams. I don't have to remind you of the crusades fans are willing to go on for scraps of gay subtext. Some of us will always be crusading with and for the other scraps. Welding them together into sculptures of what we want the next iteration to be like. Still not receiving passively. Still trying to make real progress out of the perfunctory and pitiful. Everyone has their lines and buttons, and it's easy to understand why the reboot might not be an old school Trekkie's cup of tea. But chalking it up to acceptance of the history of Star Trek's progressivism at face value -- what could be more regressive than that?

thank god you blew it

1. God, I just can't stand medialogging. I don't mind keeping track for myself so much, but formatting it and posting it somehow sucks out my soul. Which is too bad because I like HAVING medialogged. December, which I could never bring myself to bother with:

just like use your imagination and pretend I made this look nice )

In January the important thing is, I watched two more Ghiblis (Whisper of the Heart and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind). And racked up several dollars in library fines. These two items are related. Anyway, why make a medialog when I can make a babblelog, like so--

2. I subjected myself, for reasons of science and/or boredom, to ye olde Girls (season one). Meta dickishness aside (and meta dickishness is something I am trying to keep from entering my discussion of anything new I walked uphill both ways on that road when I was a BSG child and I am tired), it is just your average show about obnoxious straight white ppl, of which there are thousands. It could even be something insightful about sheltered straight white ppl learning what a world they actually live in and grappling with what that means, like a continuation of Lindsay's story on Freaks and Geeks (another show about straight white ppl, also produced by Judd Apatow, with the same mom-actress in fact) but then it's like lol nm bye

3. this was secretly a segue so I could announce that I loved Allison Williams on The Mindy Project. I have really enjoyed the past three episodes of The Mindy Project. I love TR Knight on The Good Wife too! i'm really glad he didn't cease to exist or collapse into a puddle of ex-george o'malley mush. TGW: getting good again?? maybe?? someday??? KALINDA????? please

5. I enjoyed the last two PNRs more than I have enjoyed PNR in a while. I enjoy next week's episode title, "Ann's Decision" ... that she is gay!!!

6. BomB GIrls: I can't type I'm sick. I tried "Bomg" like five times right there. Betty McRae though!!, Kate your storyline will never make sense this show is better than last year but it's still basically kinda bad, all Corbetts and Gladii are assholes but I like Vera's storyline.

7. Elementary is back!!!!!
8. NEW GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
9. Concerning The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, many problems - meta dickishness most firmly aside.

if you're talking 'bout a Rachel, she better be me )

Dear Yulegoat,

Thank you!!!! Don't panic! Listen, this is my fifth Yuletide and the sad fact is, I haven't got the attention span to worry about both the story I have to produce and the story I will receive. If history is any indication, I will spend every day till Christmas rolling myself into knots about my assignment and only when fics go live will I remember that I get a present too: a happy surprise and reward just for me! SO EXCITING! Basically I love presents and I love surprises, and I super believe that the best creative work comes from a genuine creative impulse, so don't stress about trying to jump through my hoops -- just write your story, and I will be bowled over by happiness and gratitude, I guarantee.

However, if I were you I'd be in knots as aforementioned, so I'm gonna give you a rundown of my taste preferences, but here's the cheat sheet: yes to nuanced and organic, no to facile and sentimental.

Or, detailed-er: )
Also on the off chance that it may be helpful for you, I've made a tag for you on my tumblr (mostly weighted towards Adventure Time, because that's what I reblog a ton of -- but I feel equally passionate about all these requests). Think of it as a mood board, or an inspirational collage? Yulegoat 12, what what.

Requests, further details, and how-to-finds below.

New Girl )

The Good Wife )

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries )

Marceline and the Scream Queens )

Let's see, is that it? Feel free to browse all my online presences ([ profile] anygoddamnedcolleen, [ profile] beatricks, [ profile] TrisB, and my old LJs are archived at [personal profile] allbackups) and harass my friends and if all else fails, make shit up. Just have fun, okay?

I declare a renaissance!

I accidentally on purpose forgot to sign up for Kaleidoscope :( The fact that the writing period looks to be less than a month, while firmly sandwiched within Yuletide, and Avatar Ladyfest which is due a week beforehand and the story I've dreamed up is a doozy -- oh and P.S. I'm moving across the country -- something had to give.

Next year maybe! I hope the schedule will make more sense, and that Kaleidoscope can be in complement with Yuletide, not competition with it.

Trying to do more fannish stuff over here. It never really works on tumblr, because I have a mostly-fashion/art tumblr, so most of my followers are there for that and don't play with me, and the fannish ones are less aware of who I am~ as a fan. The other alternative is to have a dedicated fannish tumblr, which is an idea I've considered for many moons, but never quite appeals. BECAUSE! I ALREADY HAVE THIS! HELLOOOOO 

(if I owe you a comment or response I haven't forgotten, I am just terrible at stuff)

So, let's play a game:

Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing and I’ll tell you something about the story I’d write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write)

1. genderswap
2. bodyswap
3. drunk!fic
4. huddling for warmth
5. pretending to be married
6. secretly a virgin
7. amnesia
8. cross-dressing
9. forced to share a bed
10. truth or dare
11. historical AU
12. accidental-baby-acquisition
13. apocalypse fic
14. telepathy
15. High School/College AU

Oy gevalt.

Don't Trust The B in Apt 23, by the way, is a genuinely funny Bechdel-acing womance created by a queer woman of color. It's about a hardworking, innocent Midwesterner named June (Dreama Walker, who you may remember as Zach's evil girlfriend on The Good Wife) who moves to New York and becomes roommates with a chaotic neutral-edging-on-evil amoral conartist party troll named Chloe (Krysten Ritter, who you may know from that show we don't talk about or Breaking Bad), who is best friends with James van der Beek, who you may remember from being James van der Beek. (HE PLAYS HIMSELF AND IT IS GLORIOUS) Also the title comes from Robin (played by Liza Lapira who you may remember from Dexter or NCIS), the lady down the hall who doesn't so much think Chloe is a bitch as she's actually in love with her. 




It is some good times.

I didn't do Kaleidoscope (multimedia fanworks exchange for sources featuring POC characters created by POC; see [community profile] dark_agenda) last year but I'm pretty pumped for it this year. So! Lettuce brainstorm!

I am so totally nominating/requesting
The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (already nominated) - Caroline Lee!!! I might save this for Yuletide because I may need fix-it fic when Caroline's sudden but inevitable betrayal pops up; but as my twitter friends know, I love Caroline and I love Caroline & Lizzie being friends and I just want to to last forever ;______________;
Kingdom of the Gods - N.K. Jemisin - Shahar Arameri (princess not matriarch). I DEFINITELY need fix-it fic for this one. I will prob also nominate Sieh and Glee Shoth cuz I liked her.
Princess Tutu - said I would for somebody before remembering that maybe the characters in Tutu are white?? IDK (yup, ineligible)

I am thinking about nominating these even though I don't have any requests in mind
The Earthseed duology - Octavia E. Butler
Slice of Cherry - Dia Reeves

PLANETES - !!!!!!!!!!
Luther - Idris Elba is a producer, so it might qualify. I would dig Erin fic so hard.
Ugly Betty - [shrug] I just saw a Betty icon and felt all nostalgic

Chromatic bbs who don't qualify and it makes me sad
Beasts of the Southern Wild - Yuletide here we come
Young Justice - Queerball Artemis & prickly sisterhood with Jade, forever in my heart :'(
Greek - Rebeccaaaaaa and Ashleeeeeeeigh
