    Summary

    Draco Malfoy always knew how his life would go: Be the perfect pureblood heir, graduate Hogwarts, join the Dark Lord, marry a pureblood woman to have an heir of his own, and live (if not happily) then contently ever after. However, certain alliances new and old are made in the background of his life at Hogwarts that throws a wrench in these plans. Whether it's for good or ill is something Draco will have to learn the hard way.

    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

    “Oh, Castiel… you’re heartbroken,” said Kelly Kline.

    She rested her hand on top of his, smiling sweetly and sadly. The garden around them was absurdly beautiful; it reminded Castiel of the eternal Tuesday afternoon of the autistic man who had died in the bath. A Heaven that no longer existed, because Heaven was no longer memories on repeat.

    “Heart… broken?”

    Summary

    “Two weeks of sex. That’s what you’re after?”

    “Nagini would say two weeks of companionship, but … yes.”

    Tom fully expected to loath everything about his forced holiday to the island known as Paradise, but that was before he met Harry.

    Summary

    Harry's not an idiot, at least that's what he hopes. He does, however, have enough common sense not to write down his own name when a magical diary asks for it.

    Gryffindor as always, he decides to prank the diary by pretending to be Voldemort and is confused by the reaction he receives. The most fun (and potentially useful) course of action is to play along.

    Tom senses his own magical signature in the writer, though it appears that his future self has gone to efforts to disguise it. He wastes no time trying to learn as much as he can about the present. Harry ends up learning more.
