Managed to force myself to write a new iCarly fic: On the Mend.

I also decided today that instead of going to a friend of a friend's birthday party on saturday I'm going to go to pioneer square and meet people from the internet, instead. I am aware that going to a Metafilter meetup is NOT the best way to make new friends, compared to a birthday party, but I kind of figure, one, I'll actually have fun at a MeFi meetup, two, the food will be better, three, the only way I'd make friends with someone at the birthday party is if I saw them again, which would only happen at further gatherings at this pseudo friend's house, which I will be more likely to attend.

I dont know. Maybe I'll luck out and find out that someone at the MeFi meetup lives in my building. And is attractive, single, ginger, male, lapsed Jewish, omnivorous, father-material, comfortably-employed, nerdy, and loves animals. Yep. That's exactly what's going to happen.

....I miss the days when I would post a fanfic at 7am and I'd get a review in ten minutes. I guess that's what I get for not constantly feeding people fanfic.

LOL, I got my first review. Hahahahahahaha. Okay, so maybe those days aren't quite over.

Anyway. So the acornteapot dramz essentially boil down to generational fandom culture gaps, which are MUCH closer spaced than normal generation gaps. But, please, if anybody has me friended who feels like two boy fairies holding hands and making googly eyes at each other, or two girl fairies doing the same, is even one iota more scandalous than a boy and a girl fairy holding hands and googly-eyeing, (and we're talking disney's "born from dandelion fluff and laughter" functionally immortal and having no childhood or need for procreation fairies, here) unfriend me, IMMEDIATELY. Don't let me know that you think that, either. I'd rather live in blissful ignorance in this case.

Right, so, that's my internet doin's, sorta kinda, for today.

BUT DIDN'T YOU KNOW? Slash can never be innocent because it always = PORN PORN POOOOORN.

Despite my rampant slashyness I do not think I could ever bring myself to write porn. I just couldn't keep a straight face long enough.

Also her argument essentially seems to boil down to NO NEED FOR SEXUAL REPRODUCTION = NO NEED FOR SEX OR ROMANCE WHATSOEVER.

Yeah. Because romance is ONLY about sex and nobody anywhere ever falls in love or does the horizontal hula for any reason other than reproduction. *headdesk*

PS I just remembered you are an Avatard... should I link you to some of my fic to pass the time while I write Disney Fairies shenanigans? :P

yeah i edited this for the right icon
Excuse you, I am NOT an "Avatard". I like the show, and I find the fandom to be amusing, as an *outside observer*.

But yeah you can link me to fic. I might read it, I might not. I'm sure as hell not gonna read it if it's Zutara. But if it's Toph/Iroh does Harold and Maude, YES PLZ. (One day I'll make a diagram of my Avatar shipping preferences. It will look like a very large spiderweb, that also spells out "CABBAGES")

OH HELL NO ZUTARA. Most of what I've written is Toph/Sokka fluff and/or ridiculousness and a little Tyzula angst.

Ssshhh, this post isn't flocked. We wouldn't want to cause FEELINGS to be HURT, now would we.

Mostly I feel bad for causing another comm's rules to be changed like that. It's hard enough being any sort of non-hetero sexuality as a young kid or teenager, imagine if you're into something as cute and fun as Disney Fairies and the LJ comm where you like to post pictures of your dolls suddenly demotes your underlying desires for romantic love from something that just goes on in the background to straight up socially unacceptable? I occasionally like to entertain the idea that fandom is better than that, but I know I'm wrong. :/

Yeah. As much as I think this entire thing is COMPLETELY silly I do feel bad in that respect. Though I suppose it's better for everyone to have those rules stated clearly so nobody innocently posts something then gets personally jumped on. In all honesty it really is her community and she can run it whatever way she likes. Not my call to tell her otherwise. Which I said several times... only to have it taken as condescending sarcasm or something.

However, that does not mean I'm going to pat her on the back and apologize for thinking she's a whole bag of nuts. *eyeroll*

I think my ideas on slash are fairly well encapsulated in this slightly-out-of-date icon.

(I should really add a "Or Ginny" frame in there, but this dates to before Ginny was serious potential as a romantic lead.)
