No. 168 “The Unarmed” 

Rest In Peace…

to Michael Brown, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell And the countless other lives that have been taken away from this world due to prejudice.

And an honor to the many people in Ferguson standing up, fighting, hoping that some kind of justice can be had in the midst of chaos.

At last, a new Revolutionary Times comic has arrived. 

And not a moment too soon. A little levity in these serious times is what we needed. Thank you, gentlemen.

OK, now I'm gonna work on 10.01 tag. And also it's early-bird deadline for spnreversebang. Whoopsie.

PS, this is some futurama art I did for the rare character exchange! They're not rare characters, really, but the fandom is rare so they qualified. I'm super pleased with it STILL.

Dear Yuletide Author

elf: Petalwing in snow, saying "Yuletide!" (Yuletide)
[personal profile] elf
I missed out on nominations this time--that means I wasn't able to nominate my beloved Ghost Soup Infidel Blue, and none of the remaining fandoms have the exact character choices available for The Fic Of My Heart. That's good news for you--it means you can write The Fic Of Your Heart, and I will not be disappointed! I worked hard to pick fandoms where I could honestly say I'd love anything I got, and I didn't want any of them more than the others.

I am a strong (avid, fervid) believer in Optional Details Are Optional. Because of that, and aforementioned scheduling fail on my part, I'm nominating all my fandoms with "any" this year--but I figure I should give you some plotbunny options so you don't have to panic about what I might like, especially since my journal's been mostly inactive for the past year or so and you can't tell what my tastes are. (They haven't changed; I've just been quiet recently. Feel free to poke at my past "yuletide" or "plotbunnies" tagged posts to get an idea of my scope of interests.) I have a habit of focusing on the specific nominated characters when writing prompts, but don't feel limited to those! If you like the fandom but your favorite character wasn't nominated, I'd be happy to read that story!

What I like: Explicit fic (although I also enjoy genfic), weird consent issues, canon-compliant fic (or rather, "canon-compliant if you squint," because I don't actually believe Kirk and Spock were boinking between missions), vastly imbalanced relationship dynamics, humor, sneak crossovers, overt crossovers, slash, accidental soul bonds, sex pollen, missing scenes, PWP, epistolary fic, hooker!fic, plot-heavy fic, fic that makes me rethink a character, fic that changes how I understand canon. My bulletproof kink is breathplay. Obviously, these should not all be in the same fic. (If you feel really inspired, you're welcome to try that!) Don't feel limited by this, or worried if what you want to write doesn't hit anything on this list--this isn't "everything I like," and not even "everything I like most." It's just "a short list of what I can think of right now that I like."

Squicks/Triggers: Not a problem! No known triggers that can be hit by fic, and very very few squicks, which are not likely to come up. (This is not a challenge.) (No, I'm not listing them; I'm that confident that you wouldn't write them for a stranger. Non-strangers are welcome to experiment.) I don't mind brutal fic, character death, or unhappy endings. (Also not a challenge.) Basically, very easy to write for -- I love a broad range of tropes, writing styles, tones and genres.

What I don't normally read (which doesn't mean "don't write this," but if your muse isn't leading you in these directions, don't go out of your way to add them): ABO of any sort, werewolves, scat, high school/college/coffee shop AUs, "name on the body" soulmate fic, Homestuck anything (I have a liveblog and am trying to avoid spoilers for things I haven't seen yet. Like trolls.), Ghost Soup Infidel Gold (what were the showrunners thinking?!),

If you're really concerned, find a mod or someone in Yulechat to have them ask me--but mostly, go with "I like everything, even the things I don't like." Write the fic you want to write, 'cos that's the fic I want to read.

On to the specific fandoms (which is long, and includes the bits in the AO3 prompt, and you don't need to read any of this):
Glitch, Daria, Elfquest, M.A.S.H., MST3K, ABVH )

I have signed up. Thanks to its alphabetization of requests, the automated email from my sign-up ended thus:
Obey! Consume! Conform! Best wishes, Your Mods

I need to write my letter, and think over my offers more carefully. Finding vid songs is hard, but better to scramble now to find one than to realize after assignments go out that I'm stuck.

Other people have already started posting letters. I've begun my yearly list of Dear Festividder letters by fandom. It might be a little early; sign-ups are open until the 29th, so people have time to change their requests, but people who have publicly posted their letters are not likely to change. Last year some time after sign-ups closed the Festivids website unveiled a public list of everyone's requested fandoms, including links to their letters. If that is repeated this year, it will make my hand compiled list less necessary. It's still nice to have an alphabetical list of fandoms, I think.

working on another non-organic character

idk what the deal with the scanner is

i'm gonna pick up that mary sue wolfaboo parody comic thing again

i'm starting to get better at vehicles. i want to come up with some xtremly scray vehicular monsters. also i had these totally rad toys as a kid, they were things like monster trucks and fighter jets WITH BIG GAPING TEETH maybe that's the insipration behind these monsters. cool. man those toys were rad.

since i've resurfaced and am rebuilding connections, people have high expectations of me. "wolves have interesting lives" is my dumb baby project ("wonderful world of stanton" is my precious baby) so i'll just be working on those. especially the wolf one so i can work on it during those comic making jams.

On passe aux choses sérieuses !

I worked on this page a lot because I wanted it to look cool and for no other reason. Not sure I got there. I hit the point where the story was conveyed so long ago, but there was something more I was going for and I’m not sure what it is.

Radio Free North Hollywood.

Wallace Emerson Community Centre, evening of 19 October 2014

I took this picture of a corner of the Wallace Emerson Community Centre last night, after I cast my vote in the advance polling.

I've taken a few pictures of this complex before: this extended 2009 photo post of the complex, another post that year of the tiles at the end of the long corridor, and still another post from 2012 looking at the complex from the north.

Lazy day in bed - reprise

Well, I went to sleep for six hours in the middle of working on this. Because of not sleeping Sunday, which was very foolish. Since I’m already late, I decided it was simpler and quicker to leave Jeannette’s hand in this position. even though I kind of wanted to have it on Ozzy’s thigh or just poking inside his shorts’ waistband.

This is of course modified from the scene I built for a strip five weeks ago, which I seem to have called both “lazy day in bed." & “lazy feet." Shooting at this angle lets me avoid worrying about adding windows and doors, and also the question of whether their bedroom wallpaper really has that bloody tampon oddly red stylised-bulrushes-at-dawn pattern.

Finished Umineko: When They Cry episode 1 yesterday. Loved it. The ending was hilariously shocking to me and I adored how dark it was. Started episode 2 today, with the voices and newer sprites. VERY INTERESTING SO FAR.

Watching Les Miserable (1998) after obsessively watching Les Miserable (2012) is a bit like looking at a jpg after spending all day looking at gifs. I keep kind of poking the actors and going, "You should be singing! Why aren't you singing!"

That said, I do still love Neeson and Rush.

I slipped an fell and got a new Porthos icon. [community profile] sways does really nice stuff.
