STFU Ianto

Good Morning!

Darling fascist bully boy,

Waves to friends and stalkers.

Apparently I'm pissing folks off again by stating things they find unpleasant. I didn't think the irresistibility of Jack Harkness with-in the Who-verse was a controversial issue, but apparently I'm mistaken.

Life's a fish and then you fry.

I'm having a great week of comments on my recent fics, especially This drabbble, This House-fic and the fact that I got a second Children of Time Nomination, this one for my Capt. John/Tosh Fic

Plus, you know....NEW PRESIDENT!!!!!!

Which reminds me.... Jack/Obama fic
Nothing rude, I promise. hllangel did this brilliantly so go take a look. You'll like it too, stalkers.

See ya later,


K-gal.

Why?

Why, why, why, why?

Why can't I just chillax and stay out of some things, especially things that have big, screaming, neon signs around them pretty much flashing THIS WAY TO THE WANK!!!!?

Yesterday. Fandom Secrets. http://i33.tinypic.com/i1ibro.jpg

Obviously this tickles my Owen-loving, you-know-who-hating fancy, although the Barrowmania trumps all so I'm not completely on board with the "more talented than the rest of the cast" put together part of the secret. However, I went in to offer love and support. Unfortunately, the secret-maker opined that she was sick-to-death of the Owen Is A Rapist thing, and even though it was only a small part of the secret, I had to weigh in with love for the Owen Is Not A Rapist viewpoint. And the inevitable happened, complete with personal attacks to the effect that EITHER I'm personally responsible for women being raped and not being able to come forward or get convictions OR I must be a rape-victim suffering from some sort of trauma, although I'm not sure exactly how they drew that conclusion.

Anyway, THIS post isn't about that issue itself. I've already spelled out my thoughts in THIS POST and written THIS FIC, if anyone still wants to read and comment over there. The question is why I can't stay away when it comes up again, along with all my other HOT BUTTON isues, like who Jack really loves and the validity of H/W as a fluff-pairing. Most of it got covered in the Things In Fandom I'll Never Apologize For MEME, but I'm sure there's other both in fandom and real life.

Do you guys have stuff like this? Topics that you just can't leave alone, no matter how much of a shit-storm you know you're going to walk into?

One of those things that just WILL NOT DIE!

Feel free to ignore this. Yes it's the "Owen is a rapist" argument again. Someone raised the issue and my obsessive, compulsive self just can't leave it alone. I invited the anonymous posters to come back here and take the wank off the secret comms, but I'm not sure they'll show.


THESE ARE THE FACTS OF THE MATTER
THESE ARE THE NAMES IN THE CASE
THIS IS THE STORY, THE PASSION
THE TIME AND THE PLACE
THEY'RE LAID HERE BEFORE YOU
SO JUDGE IF YOU CAN -
THE DEVIL INCARNATE OR
A MISUNDERSTOOD MAN?


In this case, one Owen Harper and some alien sex spray as seen used in Everything Changes.


Here's the transcript of the scenes in question as posted at tw_transcripts.

And here is the interpretation that some people take from it:

My third Fandom!!Wank appearance!

Yes folks the whole "Is Ianto a Mary Sue" brouhaha has reached the hallowed halls of Fandom!Wank itself.

It's happening Right here

Frankly the giddy euphoria of the first two times has worn off, and I could just as easily have done without the whole thing. I feel I did not engage anyone in the thread who didn't address me or allude to me directly.

One question I do have, the two posts on the subject alluded to in the wank post, is IF the way to prove that Ianto is not a Mary Sue or even RTD'S Mary Sue is to yell loudly to the roof-tops that shagging Jack doesn't make him special, then why does it send so many of the J/Iers into paroxysisms of pleasure whenever it is alluded to onscreen and especially why are they all so ferociously opposed to the idea of any one else (Gwen, cough, cough) doing it? (Yeah, yeah. Rhys. Fine. You got ANYTHING else?)

So, Fandom Wank members, is three a lot or am I still merely a piker in the great world of wank?

And any other interested parties:


I just found THIS posted to ppth_support.


I was not approached to ask permission to post to the Comm prior to the posting.

I'm not sure I'm on board with the premise, especially since this seems to be affiliated with the same convention that tried to sponsor a House-fic contest using the dreaded smushnames for pairings and attempting to discount H/W as a viable pairing.

The fact that they use ODOR as an example of an episode that "helped" people really sticks in my craw.

I'm deeply tempted to delete the post from the comm and send a snippy email stating my reasons for doing so. Have any of you mods been spammed with this thing and were any of you approached to ask permission, and what are you doing about it?

I don't want this to go the Wank of all flesh, but I feel kind of grossed out by the whole thing.


ETA: I've decided to delete the post.

The Wank, writer's angst and a concert review.

Collapse )


Went to an awesome concert at Noe Valley Ministry on Saturday night. I just happened to be walking by Taqueria Cancun on Valencia Street and saw a flyer for a concert with Boulder Acoustic Society, who I recommended when I saw them at the Bluegrass Festival back in February. I told Hubby and he agreed we had to go.

They are just the most fun band to watch and listen to if you have any interest in old-time, bluegrass, jazz, ukeleles, banjos or just good music. They also make it seem like being in this band must be the most fun thing in the world. At one point they played "Stayin' Alive" on three ukuleles and a shaker. That's entertainment.
Check them out here!

The opening act was Hot Club Of Berkeley I love "Gypsy Jazz". (Slight RSL connection because of music and Django mention in "Swing Kids".) This band kicked ass. They had the sound down perfectly and played wonderful original material in the Hot Club style. The singer/lead guitar player George Cole was seriously yummy in a clean-cut, great suit, smooth voice, great teeth, beautiful eyes, nice hair, oh my god I want you, kind of way. And sings beautifully. And writes nice songs. And smiled at me. And when he took off his tie and opened his collar? GUH!

The funny part is I was sitting in the front row with my pink notebook attempting to write smut at the same time.

Oh, did I mention I was there with my husband?

There was another band, Iron and the Albatross

I thought they sucked. Although you gotta at least try and listen to a group that features both a glockenspiel and an opera singer. Didn't quite work for me though.

World Cup's over. Viva Italia! Now I can concentrate on the Lance-less
Tour de France for which my motto is "Anybody but Discovery."
