“News of the OTW bubbled up from many directions at once, most likely through my associations with Escapade, but also through an academic colleague whose partner at the time was involved. I was so excited to hear about the emergence of this fan advocacy network which brought together fannish lawyers willing to help protect our fair use rights as fans; fan scholars publishing their work through a peer-reviewed journal; fan programmers using their skills in support of the community; and of course, an archive where fans controlled what happened to their own works without the interference of web 2.0 interests.

Each of these things is important on its own terms, but taken together, this organization has been a transformative force, in all senses of the words, for fans and their rights to participate.”

For our anniversary Henry Jenkins talks fan studies, students, fandom changes over the years & why it's worth fighting for: http://goo.gl/fm19m5

What you're Saying when You Say "I Don't Need the Mic"
By Erika A. Hewitt
August 31, 2017

https://www.uua.org/worship/lab/what-youre-saying-when-you-say-i-dont-need-mic

This is directed at a Unitarian Universalist audience, but can apply to any group or event.

“When a mic is being used at a meeting and someone looks at it and says, ‘Do we really need this?’ I feel outright anger. That person just asked if people like me really exist and demanded that we defend ourselves.”

OTW 10th Anniversary Chat


What were some of your early experiences like when your work gained its own fans?

*MarthaWells
I think my favorite experience is seeing the fan art, and seeing fanfic from my books show up in Yuletide. That’s hugely exciting to see fanfic and fan art of your work, especially to someone who was a fan from way back in the print zine era.

*SeananMcGuire
The first time something I’d created showed up as a fandom option for Yuletide, I literally cried. Happy tears! But it was like, HOLY WHAT NO HOW OMG VIXY LOOK AT THIS DO YOU SEE THIS. It’s amazing. It’s still amazing. I can’t read any of the fanfic of my own work, but knowing it exists makes me so happy.

What with the news of there being a Tina Turner musical coming soon, I popped in one of her CDs in to listen (and sing along to) and have decided that I should put together a guess-list for the songs that I want to make it into the musical, arranged roughly from DEFINITELY MAKING IT IN to DEFINITELY NOT MAKING IT IN.

First of all, "What's Love Got to with It" and "Proud Mary" are definitely making it in, 100% guaranteed.

OTW 10th Anniversary Chat


What things have you been excited to see in recent years, either regarding fandom or work in your genre(s)?

*Catherine R.
I really like fanfiction and its explosion on the internet. I think fanfic is a great way for people to learn the craft skills of writing. Many of my college students fall in love with writing that way: by reading fanfic and then starting to write it themselves. I always encourage them to go for it! I love the supportive structure it creates for imagination and fantasy to run wild. I think that realm is so important. Imagination lets us explore quandaries of desire and justice and truth and conflict: all the central problems of what it means to be human.

*Christina L.
It’s been incredibly exciting to see so many writers from our fandom specifically or fandom in general out there publishing books. Of course we all know the big ones—EL James, Cassie Clare—but there are others from the Twi world that had fantastic voices and ideas and who are now also bestsellers. Sally Thorne, Alice Clayton, Nina Bocci, Leisa Rayven, Mariana Zapata, Amanda Weaver—all of these women wrote fantastic fic.

Tabletop’s Eldritch Horror Pt. 1 was released this week.

Speaking of horror, I think I mentioned that I had this idea for a 1970s-style ridiculous, bloody, Grindhouse horror film. I thought it was just a silly story exercise, but the more I thought I about it and the more I did the story work for practice, the more I wanted to do the story work to make it into a real thing. So I’ve been working on that. It isn’t on cards just yet, but it’s on the whiteboard and it has its own file of ideas and beats and characters and stuff. I don’t know if it’ll get made, but at the very least I’ll have a script to publish.

I’ve been using that idea as an excuse to watch a ton of actual 1970s ridiculous, bloody, Grindhouse horror films. I’ve thrown some classic exploitation films into the mix, and learned a lot about how those movies were made. Some of them are terribad, but most of them have a sincerity that is utterly charming and worthy of emulation in my own screenplay.

I’ve been leveling up my understanding of story and character construction with this book called The Anatomy of Story. It’s densely packed with information and examples, and it’s slow reading for me because I keep going back to review, and I’m making a ton of notes in my notebook, but I’m pulling in tons of XP with each chapter. If you’re interested in writing and want to understand how to build your story, I highly recommend it.

The Deuce is as amazing as I hoped it would be. I am hoping so hard that the series lives up to the pilot (which is a thing I never say, because pilots are generally not that great, since they have to introduce a ton of characters and information.) Franco has always turned me off (it’s not him, it’s me), but I fucking LOVE him in this show.

Blood Drive was not renewed by the network formerly known as Sci-Fi, which makes me a little sad, because Colin Cunningham and Christina Ochoa are brilliant in it (Christina should have had top billing and Colin should win awards), and I would watch them as those characters forever. But! It always felt like it should be a miniseries, and the last four episodes weren’t nearly as compelling as the first eight. I felt like they had to bail on the premise — each episode pays homage to a classic exploitation trope — to set it up for multiple seasons. There was so much great stuff in it, though, and I sincerely love that SyFy gave the project the greenlight. It was a risky project, to say the least, and it’s so cool to see a network that was profoundly risk-averse when I worked for them take the chance.

I read a bunch of short stories from Charlie Jane Anders when I was on vacation last week, and I loved them all. So I went to the bookstore yesterday to pick up All the Birds in the Sky, and while I was there, I browsed the tabletop game section. My finger is ten miles from the pulse of tabletop gaming right now, but I took pictures of some games there that looked promising to me:

Have any of you played any of them? I’m just looking for fun games to add to my collection, not necessarily games that are candidates for Tabletop, as Tabletop’s future is uncertain.

Also, not that it matters, but getting Twitter off my phone and mostly out of my life has been a really great choice. It turns out that not being kicked in the face by infuriating bullshit dozens of times a day is a pretty neat idea.

So that’s a bunch of stuff I want you to know. What do you want me to know? I’m enjoying these posts, because it reminds me of the early days of my blog, when you who read it and I who wrote it would interact more than we seem to these days.

 

Mermaid watch: A Mermaid's Tale

scaramouche: A mermaid from Hook swimming (mermaid - hook)
[personal profile] scaramouche
So there's a direct-to-DVD movie called A Mermaid's Tale that came out a few months ago, about a girl who befriends a mermaid, and Jerry O'Connell plays the girl's dad. The film itself is kinda embarrassing in that basic, a-minimum-amount-of-effort-was-made kind of way, but the thing that offends me the most of the entire venture is the following:

This is what the mermaid looks like. (She's the one on the right, and in this scene she has legs.) She's pretty, and pretty typical for a teenager/young woman.

Screencap behind the cut. )

This is what the mermaid looks like on the DVD cover.

It was an incredible honor and privilege to contribute a story to this anthology. We were given the opportunity to write a story about a minor character in the Star Wars universe, and I chose the guy who watches ships fly away from the rebel base.

My editor pointed out that one of the guys (who I call Rebel Base Bucket Guy, because that amuses me) is already named, so my Rebel Base Bucket Guy is a different guy. I have to point this out, because the Star Wars Nerds are going to force choke me if they think I renamed their canonical Rebel Base Bucket Guy.

Anyway, it was a lot of fun to write, and I titled it for my friend, Laina, who is best known for her hilarious YouTube videos.

scaramouche: Door knocker from Labyrinth (labyrinth knocker)
[personal profile] scaramouche
Julia Fox's Sister Queens: Katherine of Aragorn and Juana, Queen of Castile is a readable, straightforward biography of the sisters Juana and Katherine, daughters of the most Catholic monarchs Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragorn. As a combined biography it's fine, if a little one-sided since there's more known information about Katherine than Juana, but it did leave me wondering why it had to be a combined biography at all, and of these two specific ladies.

Like, in comparison, Nancy Goldstone's Four Queens talks about all four sisters as they were involved in marriages across Western Europe and caused intersecting points of interest, while her Catherine & Marguerite combined biography was done so to highlight the conflict between mother and daughter. Fox's book could very well have chosen to talk about all five of Isabella and Ferdinand's kids, giving a wider scope to the Spanish relationships, but she picked Juana and Katherine, who weren't that close and weren't even involved in direct conflict with each other because....?

Maybe it's to highlight their differing experiences as queens, which then turned to similarity as they suffered under the men who had power of them. There is something interesting in that -- I did like the portions pointing out that despite Juana being a queen regnant, she was treated very, absurdly differently from Katherine, who was "merely" a queen consort. But although I very much enjoyed reading about these women, I couldn't quite figure out what the book was trying to do by putting their stories side by side.

That said, the stuff I did like was the book's pushing into the forefront Juana and Katherine's upbringing under their passionate and driven parents, and how it would've influenced their choices as queen (seemingly Katherine more than Juana, which made for reading the later drama with Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn some freshness), plus its defense of Juana against her reputation as Juana the Mad. Good stuff, and only mildly perplexing.

I really need to get into better habit of archiving my tumblr fics, in case they get swallowed by the tumblr langoliers.

These are a bunch of timestamps of my Rogue One fic A Single Monk in Good Standing Must be in Want of Bro arranged in chronological order, instead of posting order.

Timestamp #1: Missing scene between atelier convo and Foss Day. )

Timestamp #2: Mystery of the starbird charm. )

Timestamp #3: At the open door gathering. )

Timestamp #4: Futurefic, a moment up on the wall. )
