    Summary

    How the hell DID Harry survive Voldemort’s curse? I’ve never believed it was solely Lily’s sacrifice – a sacrifice any loving mother would make. In my story “As Pretty Does” I offered an alternate view but never made clear exactly how Harry was protected. This because I hadn’t figured out how. But now I have. So here is my recent epiphany on how it was done…

    Summary

    ...Because apparently I need to write analyses of important Avpol-related things, and because ao3 apparently allows us to post meta. I'd love to hear your thoughts on these!

    I'll add to this with new "chapters" whenever I write fannish things that aren't fanfics. Included so far:

    Summary

    Where in the world did this name "Dollanganger" come from? As a native of Pennsylvania, I can't help but think that it's Dutch (if not German) and with that comes certain assumptions. Let's keep pulling this thread and see what unravels...

    Summary

    Here we reap the work of our hands
    Fortunes shifting with the winds
    We persist as they billow and blow
    On them a call is carried out
    That echoes its song from
    Every tongue
    Thrive, it says
    Implores
    Strive
    Strive
    Survive.

    Summary

    I wouldn't know what the hell I would be without him. He's my high when I'm too grounded in this world.

     

    --

    Their teacher assigned the class to write an essay about their assigned partners, and Iwaizumi is stuck with Oikawa. What are the odds? They write about each other; their thoughts and their wishes.

    Summary

    These essays are the result of my decision to write a story set in Ambridge at the time when Doris Forrest was employed as maid to Lettie Lawson-Hope. This has raised a number of questions about Ambridge, its oldest inhabitants, its history and geography that have required some research.

    To quote those who have gone before me in exploring the background of long-running BBC stories:

    [The writers] weren't normally bothered about how their ideas fitted in with something that was written 20 years previously, nor should they have been.... It is the job of the fan to worry about such things, to ponder the three entirely separate explanations for the sinking of Atlantis.
    Cornell, Day and Topping, Doctor Who: The Discontinuity Guide 1994

    The Archers has longer history than Doctor Who, and a lot of 'secondary canon' associated with it, consequently there are considerably more 'continuity glitches' to worry about. To some extent, for the fanwriter as for the drama's scriptwriters superficial research and intuition can carry one through, and the nit-picking of readers and listeners can be met with the arrogance of Petruchio: It shall be what o'clock I say it is.

    Summary

    Or, where I show off my absolute geekiness and nerdy linguistic obsession by writing out an amateur attempt to trace back the etymologies of Hogwarts and the Four Founders if they existed in the real world and weren't creations of Jo's mind. And then I extrapolate their origins from my theories.

    Summary

    Canon says Bester ordered Byron to fire on, and destroy, an unarmed civilian transport.

    Canon lied.

    What actually happened was different - and more complicated.

    Summary

    This isn't fanfiction, just the thoughts of a female gamer currently going through Fire Emblem Conquest. Writing to defend the series (except for Corrin) while wishing Male Corrin/Kamui could date any of the men he wants, as I currently headcanon him with Arthur and Xander.

    Not only do I want to defend the games, but I need help on which guy's the best to write/ship with Male Corrin. Who do you think is the best suitor for Male Corrin?

    I know this isn't a traditional forum, but no other site feels as welcoming as this one.

    In case you missed it: the one where Bester's parents die.

    It was a flustercluck.

    Summary

    The idea of two characters sharing a body isn't a new concept for Trek, but the way it's being handled most certainly is. Some food for thought about the problem of Voq and Ash Tyler existing as a single person.

    Sometimes I ramble on tumblr. Someone recommended posting some of my essays here.

    Summary

    Long ago, a friend of mine (correctly) observed that every time someone in Behind the Gloves says these words, he or she means something slightly different.

    Indeed.

    It's all about context.

    So many meanings. So many.

    Now with concrete canon examples!

    Summary

    Do you ever start something you wish you hadn't? Well, then you have something in common with both Katie Sugden and myself, because here, my friends, here is my magnum opus: the definitive guide to the dark times.

    Originally intended to be a simple list on tumblr, but has managed to spiral into an unintelligible word dump of feelings thinly veiling the fact that is just an overly verbose recap of the entire storyline and really, you should all just do a rewatch instead.
