    Summary

    MCU's story of Carol Danvers is an intimate tale of self-discovery, knowing oneself, and embracing oneself as one is. It is not a classic confrontation between good and evil, yet people either complain that there is no villain, or that the villain is an obvious caricature. Well, here are some words on this, and I can safely say that Carol's dilemmas and twisted origins story speaks to me more than any other superhero film ever has.

    Summary

    Sometimes essays for school are tedious to write and make you want to die. This one was actually kind of fun. Enjoy these Hot Takes on flowers and colors, and why those show that Oscar Wilde is scared and rather angry at the irony that expressing his gay self can easily get him killed.

    Summary

    Anxious teenager. Main character. Chronic masturbator. All of these may be used to describe Jeremy Heere at quick glance, in and out of both canon and fanon alike. However, I believe no flippant descriptors can adequately describe his hidden potential lying just underneath the surface.

    A meta essay dedicated to waxing poetic about my favorite character in the hopes I can win over the masses.

    Summary

    Abstract: This paper examines how the history of queer shipping among fans of the novel Good Omens, and the authority derived thereof, is under negotiation in light of the new television adaptation. Drawing on previous research on the distinctions and overlap between academic and fan analysis (Busse, Polasek, Aragay and López) and broader intertextuality (Martin, Kristeva, Barthes), it shows how online interactions within the Good Omens fandom as well as between fans and Neil Gaiman show how fans use intertextual and fannish analysis to challenge the fan/creator boundary, and how that is, in turn, challenged by the upcoming series. This paper argues for a reconsideration of the current distinctions made between the analytical practices of fans versus academics, and how fans take authority over their texts by queer representation.

    Summary

    There have been four butler/master pairs established so far:

    1) Sebastian & Ciel
    2) Grell & Red
    3) Agni & Soma
    4) Wolfram & Sieglinde

    Each of the other three relationships serve to parallel Sebastian & Ciel in interesting ways, and when they are introduced, how Sebastian & Ciel react to the pairs, and what happens in those parallel stories may even serve to elucidate the ambiguous nature of the relationship between the main characters.

    Summary

    ...Because apparently I need to write analyses of important Avpol-related things, and because ao3 apparently allows us to post meta. I'll add new "chapters" whenever I write fannish things that aren't fanfics.

    Included so far:
    1.) David Pro is pro-Avpol: An illustrated guide
    2.) Araki's inspiration for Avdol & Polnareff? "Coming to America" & "Streets of Fire"
    3.) "Who is Mohammed Avdol?" What we know from canon
    4.) Avdol *was* Van Helsing—but then Araki got distracted (and that's awesome)
    5.) The March 11, 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake & Araki Hirohiko's art: 8 years later
    6.) The duality of Polnareff: A man whose broken heart keeps on beating

    Summary

    Tales and Lessons: Bits, Bobs, and Assorted Background Information for the Nine Realms.

    This is a series of additional information and exposition that most likely won't make it into the main story of Once More with Empathy. Purely for those interested in world building and in universe lore. Will always be marked as complete because each chapter is a self-contained topic. Everything from in universe myths from my own head to more little details about customs of all the different realms. Maybe even a cut scene here and there and one shots.

    Summary

    Homophobia/Transphobia aren't just a topic to sit around to discuss at some football game. They're not just something made up by attention seeking teens on the internet. Homophobia and Transphobia are real-life issues that need to be faced. Something needs to be changed.
