    Summary

    6,000 years of slow burn has to catch fire eventually.

    This story picks up immediately upon conclusion of the Good Omens show. It chronicles the (at long, long last) romantic aftermath of Not-Armageddon in the first main installment, “Ineffably Inevitable,” then continues chronologically in little individually-posted vignettes/chapters/segments to create one larger story. Some are short and sweet, some are longer; from random drunken episodes to marriage proposal to major life changes to more nsfw activity (not in that order).

    It’s about accepting yourself, and growing, and finding your courage, and light overcoming darkness. But most of all it’s about love.

    Ongoing!

    [There is also a PWP (smut) companion account to this series- all part of the same story, just set apart to avoid overload. If interested the account is here: firenzia]

    Summary

    Abstract: This paper examines how the history of queer shipping among fans of the novel Good Omens, and the authority derived thereof, is under negotiation in light of the new television adaptation. Drawing on previous research on the distinctions and overlap between academic and fan analysis (Busse, Polasek, Aragay and López) and broader intertextuality (Martin, Kristeva, Barthes), it shows how online interactions within the Good Omens fandom as well as between fans and Neil Gaiman show how fans use intertextual and fannish analysis to challenge the fan/creator boundary, and how that is, in turn, challenged by the upcoming series. This paper argues for a reconsideration of the current distinctions made between the analytical practices of fans versus academics, and how fans take authority over their texts by queer representation.

    Summary

    This is a live example of how an author can create linked footnotes in their work with only a little bit of HTML and no workskins required. This is best viewed by clicking "Entire Work". While I've included the actual coding in bold and italic once you click "Hide Creator's Style", there's a more detailed explanation here.

    EDIT 6/28/17: The third chapter now shows how to use anchor links as an index/table of contents.
