tscc - sarah
Due to journal snafus, many links to my vids will be dead, or download or streaming links might be out of date. If you are looking for vids, the best place to go is this masterlist.

Vid: Lilith's Song [Alias]

diana
Lilith's Song
Music: "Evening on the Ground (Lilith's Song)" by Iron & Wine
Video: Alias (The Irina Derevko Show)
Notes: A Galentine's Day mini-exchange present for [personal profile] pellucid! Who hopefully doesn't mind my "surprise" secret present being a three-year-old idea that I've blathered about more than once, complete with source quality circa 2011. But, look, I actually made it! :D? Lyrics here.

The true loyalty of Irina Derekvo remains unknown.

sorry for the spam!

diana
I realized my posts haven't been crossposting here from Dreamwidth for...a long time, apparently? I was not aware of this. So I remedied that and crossposted a bunch of old entries, which apparently flooded your friendslists! Sorry, I did not know that would happen, but I won't do it again. :)

ETA: Comments still mostly on Dreamwidth, sorry! If anyone wants/needs access over there to see comments on locked posts, for your DW account or your OpenID LJ account, let me know and I will add you. I am terrible at keeping these things organized.

Highbrow Catwoman!

diana
Hey, look, a post! A post to tell you about a thing I am enjoying!

The most recent comics (anti-)heroine I have fallen in love with is Catwoman. I heartily recommend her current run (of which there are only four issues so far), which started a new story about Selina Kyle running a Gotham mob family. [personal profile] beccatoria explains the set-up and why you should read it (without spoilers)!

It has a bunch of elements I often love in stories: a morally ambiguous woman in charge, deliberately and carefully choosing which parts of her soul to sell off to keep power, because she can do more with power than without it, but still questioning her own actions. Selina is set more and more in opposition to a young woman, Eiko, from a different mob family who's increasingly disillusioned with Selina and who's taken on the Catwoman role to do the things that she thinks Selina is neglecting (and of course, Selina clashing occasionally with Batman--though rarely, because he's a minor character--who has a very different world view, incompatible with Selina's, which let's be honest, totally makes me ship them). Selina's most trusted lieutenant is another badass lady, Antonia (Selina, when written well, should as a rule trust women more than she will ever trust men). I am basically just loving it all. Only Selina Kyle would choose running a mob as her path of redemption. <3 It's being written by Genevieve Valentine, who it turns out writes very well-reviewed SFF novels and short fiction, which I have now queued up on my Kindle. The art is gorgeous, and in some ways reminds me a lot of early Gotham Central, which can never, ever be a bad thing.

Also, I can, er, provide you with issues, should you require assistance. :) Though it's well-worth buying too!

I am also reading Ed Brubaker's iconic Catwoman run from the early 2000s, which is helpfully collected into three big paperback volumes (starting with "Trail of the Catwoman"), which I am also liking a lot. But I figure it's way more helpful to say "I like these four issues of a new run!" rather than "I'm enjoying this 30-issue run from 15 years ago." But if you read the new run and want more Selina Kyle, Brubaker's a good place to start.

[community profile] ladybusiness is doing a theme week of posts about Super Women & Comics. Yay! They were kind enough to let me ramble about my extensive Wonder Woman thoughts and feelings in a guest post: You're a wonder, Wonder Woman (<-- many, many words, pictures and one gif)

Hey, I couldn't come up with a better title. I almost titled it DIANAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Also rebloggable on Tumblr.

Stay tuned for the whole week of posts about super women and comics! Tomorrow my personal comics guru [personal profile] beccatoria, damn her bless her, will have an interesting post up about negotiating comics as a feminist, and a ton of recs for comics to check out.

Dear rarewomen writer

diana
Yay rarewomen! I love all of these characters a lot, and would be very happy to get fic about any of them. I've said quite a lot about all of these characters here or on Tumblr, so I've included those links if you want more info. However, fic that simply centers and explores any of these women will make me happy!

General likes and dislikesCollapse )

I apologize in advance that I'm actually really awful at suggesting specific prompts, but I have tried in case something I have to say is useful!

Specific requests, which accidentally but awesomely became a list of women who could tear you apartCollapse )
