400th Post!

Buy naked man cards, save a yaoi publisher.

BTW: Skip Beat is really slow on being forthcoming about the pasts of Kyoko and Ren. It drops hints, but it's coming way way too slow. I also regret not preordering Nana 16. The wait's killing me here.


Quote of the Day

Oh lol, yes. Any rant about bad sex has a few people come out and say 'hey I can do X therefore your rant is misinformed'. No one cares if you can fit a spiky twenty inch dildo up your ass with no lube.

People discuss the pressure to write porn in fanfiction. I'm taking prudery back. It's OK to have boundaries. I don't want to write guro, for example. If that becomes the new fandom trend, and not writing it makes me a prude, sign me up for the prudery olympics then. And really, sometimes your characters have to get out of bed and advance the plot, or you end up with magical vagina syndrome, in which you have to make up some reason why all this sex advances the plot.

Ok, this is actually a good post in fanficrants. I do like the sort of parody of 'maybe if you squinted sideways under a full moon, maybe a guy who is too shy to even talk to girls will rape a guy who is extremely important to him! Yea! That makes sense!' sort of thing.

Man, with manga nowadays, it's shinigami, shinigami,shinigami. At least we have more Takahashi love, although my favorite will always be Maison Ikkoku. I liked that sort of down to earth love story. I decided to find Nana 16 on the shelves since my order was messed up so close to its release.


Today's bitch is as follows. For god's sakes,folks, when discussing fanfiction, let's get down and dirty into fanfiction as it actually is, not how we'd like it to be. Always assuming that all writers have well thought out plots and are always the best examples of fandom really obscures how fandom truly is. To truly discuss fandom and fanfiction intelligently, we need to acknowledge the sues, the high school AUs which are just putting character's names into a script that has nothing to do, the crossovers that make a mess out of the rules of both canons, and the bad porn, oh the bad porn, instead of sweeping those under the rug.

When looking for Persona 4 icons, I found this article about Kanji and the perception of homosexuality in games. Kanji's shadow boss is so over the top- muscular man holding two male symbols, and also, what's with those flowers? Maybe it seems more over the top with the american voice acting- 'hold me!' the shadow says while doing like 150 points of damage...

Richie reviews the worst comic ever made.Not only is the art stiff and unimpressive, the story is a bunch of whining about how girls only want jerks.

Also, het drabble challenge!

A funny story about an old couple and Adam West. I think I'll break down and buy the first volume of Fruits Basket. I don't have it, and it drives me nuts.

I've dropped Boys over Flowers because it seems to have gotten repetitive, and my shelf space is getting crowded. Still undecided about Kenshin and Death Note.

Also, all Akito and Shigure icons all the time.
