    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

    “I’m a waterbending master, Zuko. It’s insulting that you think I’m going to miss and cut you with a tiny icicle.”

    Letting out a slow breath, the banished prince lowered his gaze to the floor again and tried to focus on sharpening his swords. After dinner, Katara had thought that it would be a good idea to practice her waterbending under the moonlight. No problem there, Zuko himself loved to practice his firebending in the sunlight. The issue was that she decided to practice right next to him.

    Or,

    Zuko gets hurt and thinks he deserves it as punishment. Sokka's there to tell him otherwise.

    Summary

    Some people are born with soulmarks. Zuko has them, but his grandfather burned them off because they "make you weak."

    Team Avatar has a few things to say about that.

    Summary

    Charles has been the personal Pet of high-profile businessman Sebastian Shaw, whose impending marriage to Emma Frost comes with certain conditions-- namely, that he ditch the Pet. At Azazel's suggestion, Erik purchases Charles's contract in an attempt to glean information about Shaw's not-quite-legal banking practices. Azazel is surprisingly unconcerned when that doesn't quite play out how they expect it to.
