Patricia Lockwood · The Communal Mind: The Internet and Me · LRB 21 February 2019
A few years ago, when it suddenly occurred to us that the internet was a place we could never leave, I began to keep a diary of what it felt like to be there in the days of its snowy white disintegration, which felt also like the disintegration of my own mind. My interest was not academic. I did not care about the Singularity, or the rise of the machines, or the afterlife being uploaded into the cloud. I cared about the feeling that my thoughts were being dictated. I cared about the collective head, which seemed to be running a fever. But if we managed to escape, to break out of the great skull and into the fresh air, if Twitter was shut down for crimes against humanity, what would we be losing? The bloodstream of the news, the thrilled consensus, the dance to the tune of the time. The portal that told us, each time we opened it, exactly what was happening now. It seemed fitting to write it in the third person because I no longer felt like myself. Here's how it began.

susiecarter: Incurable (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Clark Kent/Bruce Wayne)
Clark comes back a little bit wrong—or maybe more than a little bit. He poses a danger to anybody close to him, in more than one way. There's only one person he can think of who's learned enough about Kryptonian biology to help him and isn't currently in prison; and Wayne owes him, anyway. At least he won't have to feel guilty about lashing out anymore, if he's doing it at the guy who tried to kill him.

Except "lashing out" doesn't really cover it, after a while—and maybe Wayne's in over his head just as far as Clark is.

susiecarter: and if sun comes (Justice League (2017), Bruce Wayne/Clark Kent)
There's—there's something strange about the way he feels, the cracked-open blurry sensation of *space* in his head. He has a sudden muddled impression of loudness, a cold sharp feeling so intense that he flinches and squints and presses a couple fingertips to his temple—but it's all inside. It's all—it's—is that Italian? Clark doesn't even *know* Italian, can only pick out chunks of shorter words in snatches —*mi ritrovai per una selva oscura*— where the hell is it coming from?

susiecarter: praying for sparks in the dark (in the heart) (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Bruce Wayne/Clark Kent)
"Him," the Bat repeats, in a low and deceptively soft growl.

"I don't know who he was," the man says immediately, taking this cue and running with it. "I don't, honest. Honest, I swear to god. Nobody did. He just showed up, that's all. Asking about you, asking everybody what they knew, if they'd ever seen you, what you'd done. Metropolis," the man adds belatedly. "He had that look, you know? Clean. Said his name was—Carr, or Kemp, or something. Something like that."

(Or: in a universe where Bruce becomes aware that someone's looking into the Batman, he goes to the effort to track down Clark Kent. It doesn't play out quite the way either of them expected.)

Red Dead Online, much like Red Dead Redemption 2, gives the player a horse as their primary means of travelling through the world. In Red Dead Online, your horse cannot die, and players carefully weigh the pros and cons of each horse for each competitive task, unless you are me, in which case I just picked a giant horse and all of my friends fucking hate him.

But every time he thinks about saying it something twinges inside him, deep, that stops him in his tracks. He feels—on the hook. Like he has something to lose.

Eddie Brock's Body: An Artistic Overview of the Venom Symbiote
Yes, Tom Hardy is hot, but that doesn’t mean people are also attracted to his movie characters to the degree we’re seeing now. And while teratophilia is an incredibly valid sexual expression, it puts the onus of Venom’s magnetism solely on the imaginations of fans. Both theories totally erase the hopes and dreams of multiple comic creators responsible for Venom’s sexually charged reputation.

So let’s celebrate some of those brave creators whose work has helped usher in this latest instance of monsterfucker madness. Consider this an artistic overview of Venom’s most iconic aesthetic developments, a quick and dirty introduction to the Eddie Brock/symbiote OTP that has ensnarled the CBM community this month.

“Ah. I keep the batteries in the top drawer. Not. Not the bottom one.”

There is no other way to put this: essentially everything about Popular Consciousness Kirk is bullshit.

Ducks, by Kate Beaton
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008. It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there. It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them. A larger work gets talked about from time to time. It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories. Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans. Thank you for taking the time to read it.

rageprufrock, waldorph: 10, 15, 18 (Captain America (MCU), Bucky/Stephanie, alwaysagirl!Steve AU)
Stephanie's a good girl, she's not an obedient one, so when Sarah Rogers finds out that the no-good Barnes kid has been hanging around, she's deeply unsurprised.

fortinbrasftw: Empathy & Apathy (A Song of Ice and Fire, Davos/Stannis, Ensemble, Pride and Prejudice AU)
This particular AU is based in a reality where Stannis and Davos never met under the extraordinary circumstances that put them together in the first place, but rather by somewhat coincidence... in 1813. Davos is a younger recently ex-smuggler without a family and Stannis is, well, Stannis.

Worth downloading as a mobi/epub, as it's just perfect for wallowing in. A slow-burn, intense regency pine-fest with lots of self-denial. ♥

pyes: In the New Year by pyes (Teen Wolf, Derek/Stiles, post-s3A)
In Beacon Hills they don't say "Happy Holidays." Instead they say "Yo, Derek," which translates to "I'm pretty sure I soul-bound my sorry ass to the floor of your loft, four years ago, while reading spells off the internet." I think that's beautiful.

Our Squid, Ourselves | The Hairpin
Some women dwell in complete darkness, at unfathomable depths. They emerge only at night, rising to the surface to feed.

For years, there have been unconfirmed accounts of women leaping and flying across the seas: “We have discovered that women do not just jump out of the water, but have a highly developed flying posture. This finding means that we should no longer consider women as things that live only in the water.”

Women can tear at flesh and crush bone. Teeth line their tongues. Their spit can be paralyzing. They’ll eat anything.
