    Summary

    This is the first of a series of essays I wish to write on the Gender Politics of Sherlock fandom. There are many things I wanted to say at the official panel but was unable to, since it was derailed by a group of individuals who showed up with the intention of intimidating and harassing the panel moderator. In future essays, I’d like to share my thoughts on femslash, Mary Sues and the fridging of female characters, on heteronormativity in slash, and on queer representation beyond slash (bisexual, pansexual, asexual and trans people in fanworks and fan spaces). I’d like to touch on race and being a queer Woman of Color in a fandom mostly interested in White male characters.

    Before I get to those subjects, however, I feel a need to return to the original intended topic: the essay I began writing on my phone on the plane.

    And that essay is on the subject of noncon fanworks.

    Summary

    Shortly after the events of season 3b, everyone is recovering. Stiles feels guilty over the loss of Allison and Aiden. Scott can't look at his friend. Lydia isn't talking to him. Isaac, Ethan, Malia, and Kira are all reeling in their own ways. Derek took off again.

    Fast forward to two months later, things are much the same for Stiles, except his father insisted he get checked out again as the nogitsune had tampered with his son's tests...

    The results aren't good.

    Stiles returns to school to find the pack hovering around a de-aged and cluesless Derek and suddenly finds himself on the outside of the pack's happenings.

    To top it all off his new doctor is a little... weird, to say the least.

    Can Stiles figure out what happened to Derek and help reverse it while dealing with his own personal issues? How will the pack feel when they need the spastic teen, only to find him missing? And, what is really going on in Beacon Hills? Can they come together and solve the mystery in time???

    Summary

    //MISSION RECAP REQUESTED//

    ...PROCESSING REQUEST...

    [REQUEST APPROVED]

    ...INITIALIZING DATABASE...

    Connor mused over the facts one more time.

    With a do-or-die gamble, androids had secured a future. They were alive. They were equal. Maybe one day, they would even be respected.

    The deviants of Jericho, especially, were flourishing under their newfound free will. Connor now saw something new in their faces - something bright, something colorful - despite his lenses informing him that they looked the same. Even the androids Markus had only recently converted seemed to be “growing into their skin.” [IDENTIFIED: HUMAN IDIOM NO. #31]

    Androids had found strength in numbers, in love for one another, in happiness, in anger, in forgiveness, in freedom.

    ...

    So why was he getting weaker?

    Summary

    Stiles stared into eyes that were just a little lighter than even the day before, looking almost beta-gold in the harsh lighting. His nose was just a little less uptilted, the moles on his face not quite where they used to be. The scar on the bottom of his chin from when he fell off the swings in third grade was just gone. He seemed a little bit taller, his shoulders a little bit wider.

    With trembling fingers Stiles folded his left ear forward, craning his neck. A wheezing breath escaped him, his legs suddenly feeling weak with relief.

    The mark of the Oni was still there, the one that meant self.

    Stiles was still himself. For now.

    Your friends. Your family. Everyone who ever meant something to you. We're going to destroy all of them, Stiles. One. By. One.

    The nogitsune’s words echoed in Stiles’ head again, and he grimaced. It wasn’t just that the nogitsune had threatened everyone Stiles loved.

    It was that he had said we.
