Where stuff that doesn't really rate a full blog post goes.
Do you want to see my Let's Play blog instead?

JAEGERS FLIPPING TABLES.
Bronies already made NSFW pictures of Stellar Eclipse, even though Sylvain Portelance, the OC’s creator and VA who has spinal muscular atrophy, and his mother asked people not to do so.
Also, apparently putting that OC on the show, even though it was a simple request from the Make-A-Wish Foundation, is “political bullshit” and has no place in MLP.
I know I usually don’t post such negative stuff on this blog, but holy shit.
So here’s a question, does anyone know where I can find good amateur F/F fiction online? shousetsubangbang is a good (dare I say great? I dare!) source for M/M, but there’s much less with the ladies outside the occasional special. And that’s cool, it’s not what their focus is and I don’t expect them to carter to my needs.
What I’d like to find is something that does match up with what I’m looking for. Anyone got any recommendations?
Truth be told, we on the editorial staff would love to put out more f/f issues than just one a year, but we (for reasons I’ve gotten in trouble for speculating on before) almost always have trouble rallying the troops and the audience for even the one. If there’s a secret untapped reservoir of creators and fans of original femslash stories out there, it remains a secret to me.
Fun fact: One year SSBB did do two f/f specials in a single year! We immediately got comments about, ugh, why are all the issues about women now, when are we going to get m/m issues again? So that was fun.
I guess what I’m saying is, anyone out there got the lady-love hookup?
Next time people kvetch about that, remind them about the media study where if there’s 17 percent women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50, and if there’s 33 percent women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men. Your M/M-oriented readers whining over the idea of SSBB going from 8 to 17% F/F get zero sympathy from me for their precious feefees. Omigod, try something new. Or, like, go publish your own M/M mag instead if you really can’t stand that SSBB may want to go one or two issues a year down the path of more equal gender representation within queer original fic mags.
This is an entry I made for Helpful Bear Productions’ Kaiju Design contest. (which is still ongoing, btw, if you want to enter!) Rather than design one full kaiju, I wanted to try playing around with bigger interlocking shapes and see if I could squeeze various creatures together.
that’s how you make armor for women, no bullshit boob cups.
'The Hunger Games' is the Young Adult Fantasy Version of Achewood's 'The Great Outdoor Fight'
Chris Onstad’s Achewood and The Great Outdoor Fight. For those of you who, like me, managed to somehow dodge a best-selling pop culture phenomenon, here are the basics of The Hunger Games as I understand them: After an unspecified and catastrophic war, the remains of North America are divided into twelve districts, each dedicated to a specific purpose to keep society running. Our heroine, for example, is from District 12, meaning that like Loretta Lynn, she was born a coal miner’s daughter. The districts are ruled over by the evil President Donald Sutherland, whose sinister, decadent government believes that the best way to keep the peasantry in line is to kill off their children every year in a televised bloodsport. Amazingly, nobody in the entire government seems to think this might lead to a problem.
I get why a lot of people hate the whole princess culture aimed at little girls. There’s a hell of a lot of toxic bullshit in there.
But when I was a tiny princess, my dad used to be my royal advisor. He would come to me, and over tea we would discuss the problems of the kingdom. He would tell me that new people wanted to move to the kingdom, and ask me what we should do. Or he would tell me that the teddybears and the dolls were fighting over the enchanted forest, and ask me what to do. Basically, he took the trappings of the princess culture, and used it as a tool to teach me about leadership, civic responsibility, and compassion.
So if you have a little princess around, consider helping her figure out how to run her kingdom. There’s no sense in telling a kid they can’t be a leader, or that they can’t wear sparkles while they do it.
Telling a girl she doesn’t have to wear sparkles if she doesn’t want to is not the same thing as telling a girl she can’t wear sparkles.
I see a lot of people doing the former, as well they should.
I see precisely zero people doing the latter.
lord in heaven…
