    Summary

    While researching Loki and the Librarian, I came across a video from the top of the MetLife Tower (AKA Stark Tower/Avengers Tower). Thought I'd annotate and share for anyone else who might find the info helpful as they're writing.

    Summary

    Because I am a queer rights activist and more than a little obsessed with the movie Frozen, I figured I'd write an essay analyzing the movie for how it represents the queer rights movement. Also posted to my tumblr.

    Summary

    Why JohnLock hate bothers me so much.
    While other ships might be valid in a fannish way (you can write convincing fanfiction about ANY ship & make it sound valid), JohnLock stands on the basis of canonical evidence.
    Also, a bit of context might help. I wrote this not to attack non-Johnlockers or to deny the validity of their ships, but in response to a lot of JohnLock hate that I'm reading. People say things like "shipping would ruin the friendship", "teenage girls are reading things that aren't there", "all shippers are deluded", "john is married and therefore straight", "sherlock fell for Irene and is therefore straight"...reductions that prompted this knee-jerk reaction. So all or any ship-bashing is entirely unintentional; I'm merely drawing a contrast between the undeniable (for me anyway) intensity that JohnLock share, an intensity that other purported ships (again, for me) don't match. I'm NOT saying other ships are invalid, merely trying to get JohnLock bashers to see how this is a very real ship, and (to my mind) incomparable. And yes, most of the bashers I've seen cannot get their heads around the idea that two men can fall in love, so there'll be some homophobia-bashing too.
    You've been warned.

    Summary

    Annnd we're... well, we're here! With Episode Five!! We've got one more in the pipes that was recorded a while ago and are actively seeking out some new material to talk about, if we can all get together to do so!

    For the moment, we apologize for the delay between postings, and we would like to offer you our thoughts on two articles:

    "The Cultural Economy of Fandom" by John Fiske (1992) from The Adoring Audience: Fan Culture and Popular Media, edited by Lisa A. Lewis, p. 30-49,
    and
    "A Fannish Field of Value: Online Fan Gift Culture" by Karen Hellekson (2009) from Cinema Journal Vol. 48(4), p. 113-118.

    As always, we welcome any feedback and further discussion! Please feel free to subscribe here, or join us on the ficthropology community on livejournal or dreamwidth, and thank you for listening!
