    Summary

    Shy and Zayn haven't been together very long but they're still as much in love as they were when they met in that broken down elevator. But now they have to face the consequences and complications that come with being together when Zayn is part of a famous boyband and Shylah lives in California.

    They knew being apart was going to be difficult, they knew that everything was going to crash down on them if everyone found out about their relationship, and they knew that it would all be worth it. All the pressure and the hate are a lot to handle for a girl who's never had to experience any of it. Especially when Zayn's ex fiance ends up back in the picture, touring with One Direction that summer, and tragedy strikes as a result of a fan mob, leaving both Zayn and Shylah questioning where they stand.

    Summary

    Lest faith turn to despair is a critical appreciation of a dramatic essay in philosophy of love, Steven Antin’s Young Americans (Columbia TriStar & Mandalay Television for The WB network, 2000), in the form of a fanfiction sequel.

    Synopsis: The original drama’s “true love” story affects that drama’s other characters.

    Lest faith turn to despair is a drama in five acts, plus prologue, intermezzo, envoi and notes. Each act, like the intermezzo, covers one of six consecutive days around the Thanksgiving following the original drama. Due to its length, it posted on Archive of Our Own as a series of six works, with the notes as a separate work.

    All sexually active characters are above the legal age of consent in the setting place.

    Summary

    Prompt: There are many magical means of transportation for witches and wizards: Portkeys; Apparition; broomstick; Knight Bus, among others. By comparison, how efficient is the Hogwarts Express for transporting students from all around Britain to Scotland? Why might children from Ireland, such as Seamus Finnegan, travel clear to King's Cross Station only to be taken north again?

    Summary

    Klavier writes songs about seizing the day and throwing caution to the wind. Songs that Apollo hates. However, it's possible that certain amateur music critics know at least as much about recklessness as musicians.

    Summary

    Calamity Jane is possibly the queerest film of all time. The central character spends almost the entire film cross dressed and every single one of the major characters cross dresses figuratively or literally - usually literally - at central moments of the story.

    I want to write a defense of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. No, I want to write a celebration of it. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a MGM musical produced in 1954, and it rocks.

    Summary

    This is a sarcastic, irreverent work full or criticism and snarky comments. If you don't want to see Revolution whomped a bit, please don't read this. There's also a bit of inside Tumblr humor, but hopefully that doesn't distract from the overall work.

    Story: Officially Tyler was a marketing intern charged with tracking fan response to show developments and updating the Revolution web page. In practice he spent four hours a day trolling message boards under 35 different fake identities trying to convince people that the show was logical and scientifically sound. The rest of his work hours were spent reading porn and making spreadsheets.

    Summary

    A complete series of episode reviews written after re-watching all three seasons of Star Trek (the original series) between 2011-2013. Each review consists of a plot synopsis (rendered as entertaining as possible) followed by analysis/reflection. These reviews were originally posted on LiveJournal. I am crossposting them here, where it is much easier to keep the whole series in one place.

    I first became a fan of TOS in the 1980s when I was an adolescent girl. I am now a middle-aged lesbian who, let's say, knows a lot more about gender issues than I did back then. There will be some discussion of same. If you're not interested in gender politics, you might not have a whole lot of fun with these reviews. If you are, though, you may discover that gender in TOS is actually more complicated--a Vulcan might even call it fascinating--than it might at first appear.

    I love the show, but I do not love it uncritically. I believe there is much to be learned by asking the question: Exactly why and how did this particular episode get this bad?

    Oh, also, I see slash people. But in TOS, believe me, it's there. And not just because we want it to be there, either. Enjoy!
