slash4femme: the Enterprise against a dark blue background with stars in front of the ship is the words where no man has gone before (star trek: where no man has gone before)
 So I bought my first ever Star Trek novel today. Doctor's Orders by Diane Duane is supposed to be awesome and be very McCoy centric so I can't wait. I also might blog my thoughts and experiences while reading it. 
slash4femme: Charles Xavier from the comics with his fingers to his temples while behind him the background peels away (X-Men: Professor X)
 I can't decide what I want to write first/more:

Sex Worker/Modern AU with older Charles/Erik kind of going from the premise of what it would have been like if Charles and Erik hadn't met until later in life. With a kind of spy/political intrigue twist. 

OR

Modern AU with younger Charles/Erik focusing on their respective disabilities where they are both academically inclined roommates. 
slash4femme: Magneto in his black helmet on from the 2014 Magneto solo series (X-Men: Magneto)
 What I really want is to write a modern AU based on the new trilogy characters where Erik is a Sephardic/Mizrahi  Jew with PTSD. But I'm not sure I want to deal with Fassbander fans reaction to me making Erik a person of color.  

Edit: I'll probably do it anyway though.
slash4femme: Matt and Foggy sit next to each other during an interview. The entire images is shaded light blue (Daredevil: Matt and Foggy)

 "Democracy just cannot flourish amid fear. Liberty cannot bloom amid hate. Justice cannot take root amid rage. America must get to work. In the chill climate in which we live, we must go against the prevailing wind. We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust. We must dissent from a nation that has buried its head in the sand, waiting in vain for the needs of its poor, its elderly, and its sick to disappear and just blow away. We must dissent from a government that has left its young without jobs, education or hope. We must dissent from the poverty of vision and the absence of moral leadership. We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better." -Thurgood Marshall 1992.

I have no doubt that shortening the Thurgood Marshall quote Matt reads (which a paraphrasing of the above quote) was meant to save time on the show. It’s a long hunk of texted and would have cluttered up the dialog. 

On the other hand the writers of the show left out the political and social commentary within Thurgood Marshall’s speech. The urgency to take action against suffering, corruption and apathy is lost in the shortening. 

Which is a pity because I think it informs Matt’s character maybe more than the quote use on the show.

Marshall meant this to be a call to action and, given who Matt is, I’m sure he read it as one.

 went and saw ant-man at a “midnight showing” last night for my brother’s birthday with some more of the sibs and his friends. 

It was a fun movie, I enjoyed watching it a lot. There were some genuinely funny moments. They changed canon in this movie probably more than any other, but realistically they had no other choice. The canon around ant-man had aged badly, to say the very least. In the end I was satisfied with what they did (except for the part about Janet.) The story telling scenes were awesome, I love the way they were done.

All this being said Tor.com asked if Ant-Man was a necessary part of the MCU canon? I would say no, it wasn’t. The movie didn’t really add anything to the MCU mythos or world building.

 Academics and revolutionaries Modern xmen/daredevil crossover AU where Columbia PhD student, specializing in disability studies, Charles Xavier teams up with second year law student Matt Murdock to tackle the issue of classroom accessibility. But also end up having very long conversations about how far the graduate parking lot is from the main building and how often in winter the sidewalks aren’t cleared. Or Professor Miller won’t allow his lectures to be recorded even though it’s first year tort law for God’s sake. Read more... )

 a while ago I Googled "slash4femme" right when I came back to fandom after having been gone for 3-4 years. I discovered that while a lot of my fandom stuff and passed into dust. My legacy did live on in the fact that I was cited on the Fanlore Mpreg page, check it: http://fanlore.org/wiki/Mpreg#cite_note-10 ;

Which I think is hilarious and still gives me a chuckle because mpreg is not a kink of mine and I've written maybe two mpreg fics since 2004. But that's how I am remember in the annuls of the internet.
