PSA: Your Default Narrative Settings Are Not Apolitical | shattersnipe: malcontent & rainbows
ut what happens when our perception of historical accuracy is entirely at odds with real historical accuracy? What happens when we mistake our own limited understanding of culture – or even our personal biases – for universal truths? What happens, in other words, when we’re jerked out of a story, not because the fantastic elements don’t make sense, but because the social/political elements strike us as being implausible on the grounds of unfamiliarity?

Mightygodking dot com » Post Topic » On Luthor.
Lex Luthor is, as many know, far and away my favorite of all supervillains. I would argue that he is undeniably one of the great ones. – but, unlike the Joker, who at this point has more or less been boiled down to a hard consensus as regards his personality and how he functions (so much so that Grant Morrison’s “rework” of the Joker, which really isn’t much of a rework at all, is deemed somewhat controversial), Lex Luthor’s modus operandi and personality are still the source of great debate.

netweight | The nonnies made them do it! [Fannish history. SPN. A/B/O]
"Alpha/Beta/Omega Dynamics" (also known as "Omegaverse" and often just abbreviated to "A/B/O") is a genre combining a series of tropes, creating a shared universe, which originated in SPN / SPN-RPF fandom in between the Summers of 2010 and 2011, very much as a product of anon activity, whether taking place in fic communities that relied on anon participation or in more general anonymous discussion comms.

COMMENTARY TRACK: Gillen & McKelvie Discuss "Young Avengers" #1 - Comic Book Resources
What I did with an emotional scene like that is I wrote the scene long-hand, starting the main emotional beats and writing that conversation. You look at that and realize it's 800 pages, because my first take was really about the emotions. I didn't really worry about the exposition that much. It was considerably more sparse than what ends up happening. I wrote that and I looked at the issue shape and realized I basically had four pages to do it. I did juggle some more pages around, what you can use, what you can compress -- but I basically said it's going to be four pages, which led to the eight panels of it.

Sleeps With Monsters: Lesbian SFF Romance | Tor.com
You find that in lesbian SFF romance, I discovered. They’re books that can be problematic in ways all of their own, and occasionally play into the stereotypes of subcultures with which I’m not familiar—but one thing they don’t do is demean their female characters. Or their female readers, for that matter.
