...because it's about fanfic!

I have a class about women murderers in popular culture.

Yes, it's fantastic. :) I have watched Bound, Set it Off, Basic Instinct, Fatal Attraction, Freeway, etc for this class, and analyzed them. WAY too much fun to then wind up with a grade for it.

What I need, dear flist - is fic recs.Collapse )

Anybody who contributes a fic that gets used in the paper will be eligible for a picspam on the subject of your choice from me. Thanks so much in advance for your recs!

So, today's New York Times is grappling with the idea that sports should be available to kids with disabilities. Um, duh?

It just goes to show that even in the US, where access is a matter of Federal law, people don't really understand inclusion. They still see people with disabilities (pwd) as "special" people, exception-based achievers, instead of as normal folks who do all the same things their peers do.

Cut for length and rantinessCollapse )

Don't call me an inspiration. Inspiration carries a kind of responsibility with it, as if I'm living for the purpose of making you feel something. I'm not. I'm just...living.

The following video embodies this truth.

If there's a wall, I'm gonna climb it. If there's a river, I'm gonna canoe down itCollapse )

Well, here we are again, and again I haven’t posted enough fic to fill in a fic meme. Instead I’ve decided to post some notes about my progress, complete with quotes from my 2011 post like this one.

Progress, Thoughts, and Goals:Collapse )

What about you, darling flist? How did you progress in 2011?

Dear Yule Goat,

Thank you so much for writing fic for me! I am so grateful you've decided to take on this challenge, and excited to discover whatever you create.

I am going to get into the details in a minute, but before I do, I just want to say: Have fun with this! Whatever bunnies or other ideas I suggest, it's not important that you make yourself write what you think I want if it doesn't inspire you. I absolutely revel in good porn, but I am a story girl at heart; whatever story you are inspired to tell will be welcome.

As you read these thoughts, feel free to pick one rather than trying to integrate them all. Even though I have chosen specific characters, do feel free to add other characters from the same fandom if you like. I love so many of them, and seeing them show up in my fic will be like getting to see old friends.Collapse )

Whatever you choose to write, thank you in advance for my very own Yuletide yumminess! I hope you have as much fun writing it as I will have reading it.

Love and candycanes,

<3 Mel
