I keep seeing a lot of justifications for the “Peter Quill forgot he had a passenger” thing...
Quill spends the rest of the film coming off like the sort of person who’s had to play The Functional One for the crew of the HMS Warp Factor Clusterfuck for over half his life. I don’t know if the repeated comments about eating him were meant to be taken absolutely at face value—there’s an argument to be made for reading them as some seriously fucked-up emotional blackmail rather than a genuine threat—but the dialogue about Yondu killing him if he gets out of line clearly isn’t a joke. Whatever affection or use the pirates have for him, it’s explicitly not enough to keep him safe from them. It’s not exactly an accident that the first instinct we see him showing almost every time there’s trouble is to try to smooth things over.

thingswithwings | The Monster and the Closet: Welcome to Night Vale and Queer SpecFic
I finally found that queer speculative fiction show I was looking for all that time, and it's Welcome to Night Vale.

I need to talk about Welcome to Night Vale. It grew on me like a fungus and now I love it so much that my heart physically hurts sometimes.

My discussion will include spoilery references to the most recent episode, 32, "Yellow Helicopters."

Leupagus, hellotailor: enemyofperfect: ...
Sometime I’m going to have to write my ridiculously long meta arguing that compulsory masculinity ruined Reese’s life. TL;DR version: dudes are encouraged to be strong and discouraged from getting all sensitive, and Reese — being a sensitive dude, and eager to please — did his best to live up to that, with the result that despite experiencing FEELS with an intensity and frequency that would do a Tumblrite proud, he never did that great a job of figuring out what to do with them, and instead concentrated on learning how to kill lots of people very efficiently. Spoiler: I don’t think that worked out very well for him.)

icarus_chained: Sherlock Holmes (ACD) Meta
This is middling-to-majorly nerdy of me, but howandever. It's been bugging me slightly since discussing the various Holmes adaptations with people, in particular the BBC Sherlock version and the Downey film version. Just a small exploration of the original, Arthur Conan Doyle Holmes, mostly concerned with his views on crime/morality/law. Only my interpretation, but one I'm ... ah, rather vehemently attached to.

rushthatspeaks | Horace Gerstenblut n'existe pas, or, why Daniel Pinkwater is the greatest living Surrealist
It was not until quite recently, however, that I noticed that Pinkwater is actually a capital-S Surrealist, by which I mean that he is intentionally and with forethought following the artistic and literary principles established by André Breton and his circle in Paris in the 1920s as part of the Surrealist movement, and that he is alluding in his body of work to the Surrealists and their intellectual ideas.

brownbetty | When I put it that way, it kind of sounds inevitably porny.
You guys, I really want the story of Steve Rogers' adventures with the Chorus Girls on his "Buy War Bonds" tour.

recessional: Furyans: An explanation (Or: "M's First Epic Fanwank-slash-Building-A-Whole-New-Culture, So That As-Presented Would Stop Hurting Her Brain." )
So, let us assume thus:

Furyans, as a people (whether that means species or whatever), are extraordinarily aggressive and violence-prone, particularly the men. Their wiring is such, in fact, that it is the job of the women (who hold power) to plan and make decisions and, you know, run the community, where it's the job of men to kill everything that threatens the community. Women think and direct and deal with strategy; men work tactics and the immediate and keep everyone alive.

Or, more crudely, the males are for killing things, and the females are for telling them what they may or may not kill.
