Love & Marriage
- One thing I love in a good SF story is ways of doing love, marriage, and romance that don't buy in to our society's idea of love+romance+sex+monogamy all on one single person as the only way to do it.I have a small collection of worlds that have come up with better ways, and I have a great deal of fun trying to fit the 'shipping debates from various fandoms into these other ways of looking at love. -
LiveJournal's DDoS and Russian Politics
- So, people who grumble about "the Russians" taking over LJ should remember that in Russia, LiveJournal isn't just the top blogging platform, it's the blogging platform. It is Russia's free press. It is the tool being used to fight corruption and advance the cause of democracy. And, more practically to LJ users, the Russian-speaking sector of LJ is the reason LJ is still there at all. -
Things You Should Know When LJ Goes Down--
- Right, so. It looks like the DDoS has subsided for the moment, which means I have a chance to provide a quick post listing ways to keep yourself informed whenever LJ hiccups/goes down/experiences a blackout. -
If you love us, you'll archive your fic.
- If all this LJ trouble has brought one thing in to sharp relief, it's that what worries me about losing access to LJ is the fic. -
sex, and slash sex scenes
- At Muskrat Jamboree, I went to a panel on sexuality and slash fandom, and also to one on anal sex (which I went to mostly because I thought it would be hilarious, and it was, but it was also really interesting). And it seems that something I said may have gotten reported around, so I thought I'd repeat and expand on it a bit. -
Query: on reccing art
- I really want your opinions/ideas on this: how to go about reccing art not on deviantArt -
