Oh and of course, Lorena's immortal line to Sookie:
"I'm going to rip out your ribcage and wear it as a hat"1
Which I, dear friends, quoted along with her. Dude, Buffy. Buffy!!!! On my "True Blood"!!!!!!

1) Originially said by Buffy to Whistler in Season 2 Episode 22 "Becoming, Part 2". It is a line that has been with me since I first saw more than ten years ago. I scared my friends this evening my squealing so hard when Lorena said it. It was awesome.
Back to text.

I have like a bazillion tags open regarding using Pinkwashing language regarding human rights, but instead of that serious business, I'd rather talk about fandom.

For serious.

[ profile] neo_progidy blogs about comic books and fandom on his LJ from a progressive perspective focusing on the inclusion of women (feminist/womanist perspective and issues), QUILTBAG*, non-white/poc (perspective and issues) in comic books!


His new blog can be found here: Strange Days and In Between All Things.

In addition, you can follow the rss reeds on LJ - [ profile] strangedays_rss and on DW - [syndicated profile] strange_days_feed.

*The acronym of awesome: Queer/Questioing, Undecided/Up Yours, Intersex, Lesbian, Trans*, Bisexual, Asexual/Allies, Gay/Genderqueer.

Last year, today, I watched the entirety of Torchwood: CoE in five hours straight. I watched it twice more over the next week.
It was a doozy.
It was brilliant.
It broke my heart and the way I viewed television and my own participation in fandom changed. I'm still not a huge participator, being the uncreative standoffish person that I am. I have many ideas for various fics in various universes, but I'm a lazy ass and don't really take the time to write. The last fic I wrote was for Iron Man two years ago.
My Meta still flows out of me like I dunno what, but that too, is often curtailed for writing about local politics and my own perspective of them.

My fangrrl self cannot be removed from my actual self, so my personal politics very much informs me on the way I view media, which is kind of why I never considered creating different blogs for the mish-mash of subjects I talk about here.

Speaking of which, onto some squeeage... of sorts. Tonight the new episodes of True Blood and Leverage will be airing and I'm happy, though honestly, both of the shows previous episodes left a bad taste in my mouth for different reasons. My reasons, let me show you them, cut for spoilers )

And that's all for now.

I have fandom friends to hang out with IRL!

And they're the friends I had before!


Last night was an evening of home made pizza and meeting with friends in order to watch the season première of True Blood.
Oh, how much does that show rock?!

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 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.
