Dear readers, old and new, faithful and random,

My fannish feelings towards Iron Man have produced unexpected results and I'm actually writing a fanfic.

Shocking, I know.

I will be posting these small pieces of fic on my LJ, they will be completely cut for your convenience and hopefully won't cause any of you to leave screaming from my livejournal.

I am not changing anything, this is not becoming a Fan journal; the media, political, life things and misc. fangrrl things (which, yes I know, don't make up a huge portion of this LJ) will not be disturbed by the addition of fic to this journal.
I'm not altering the layout, background or structure of my livejournal.
Merely adding to the existing one.

This is primarily for self expression, of which, as you know, I have a lot.

And just to prove to you that I have not abandoned my regular programming... stay tuned to my next entry.

Because of the holiday I had a very long weekend in which I managed to actually meet friends, earn some money, write a short paper for Lit. (about Foucault, don't tell me that takes five minutes, because I will have to kill you).

There's a lot in the News about stuff that may or may not go on in Gaza, which is worrying, because that means a whole lot of dead people.
Always a negative.
A positive is that the Shalit family have received a letter.

Another plus is that Hamas and Fatah are communicating. Yes, actual communication between the Palestinian factions which makes me feel optimistic, though again, my cynicism is getting the best of me and I have the feeling they're just doing it for show in order to try and get more sympathy from governments while leaving the actual people to rot in Gaza and the West Bank.

Leadership in these parts is quite nauseating.

I was discussing with a friend of mine who we were going to vote for in the elections, which have yet to be confirmed, but with the way things are looking it's not a long shot that Israel will be having elections not too long after good ole Uncle Sam.

Who are my options do I hear you ask; well it looks like every time I think about I can't help but shudder. The only person I wouldn't "mind" so to speak, out of the big three (Netanyahu, Barak and Livni) is Livni. I would never vote for Kadimah as it lacks any kind of moral or social fiber and stands on a platform of "security".

Axing the top three of Labour *snort*, Likud *vomit* and Kadimah *aforementioned above*, I'm left with Meretz (social-democrats), Hadash (communists) and the Green party (yes, the environmentalists).
I'm leaning towards the greens, as they've yet to get any seat in the Knesset and haven't been corrupted beyond recognition.

Ach, this is very frustrating!

I think I need to go back to Foucault and read about how as a Subject my identity is established by language and that if I'm not in the discourse I cease to exist.

Reading headlines and articles like like this one, proves, that in a way, these people are so incredibly obtuse as to be considered actually stupid.

Just the headline of the linked article: Olmert: Next U.S. administration may not be as accommodating.

Accommodating to what, pray tell? Protecting Israel from the consequences of its destructive policies. Demand actual fucking change to the way Israel has been treating it's minorities within Israel proper and the role of the IDF in the Occupied Territories!

Fuck it, this article just pissed me off.

The presumption, Olmert's arrogance, the assumption that any administration will actually do anything to anger AIPAC.

I can't really analyze this at the moment, because I'm just going on my gut feeling here; but something is off here and I don't know what.


Body of the text for the linkphobic:
Olmert: Next U.S. administration may not be as accommodating )

I posted to two previous parts at Fandom specific communities, which are public so you should have no problem reading them via the links, which I reccomend, because this is Part 3 and nothing will make sense if you don't read the first two parts.
No worries each chapter is pretty short :-D

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on me...an adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
