so i wrote a thing for my seminar called “talking back: critical fans and questionable canon”. it’s about using fanfiction and fan works as an ethical tool, and you can read it here if you like.

it is one of the most ridiculous things i’ve written for university, but i’m also proud of it.

my original point form draft was about twice as long as the paper, largely due to my unreasonable investment in dean winchester’s sexual identity; however i think i managed to pull together something coherent that isn’t going to unduly shock my prof, who is really a very nice man, and who said he was “looking forward” to the examples of fanfiction i would include in my paper, back when i was still considering including an alpha/beta/omega fic because it critiqued the sexism of the the trope.

call for fanfiction!

hi,

i’m currently working on a paper on how fanfiction can be used to confront ethical/moral problems with the canon text/show/whatever. i’m especially interested in fanfic that confronts problems with:

-representations (and a lack of representation!) and treatment of characters who are not white/not men/not heterosexual/not cisgendered

-things that are not presented as very problematic in canon but are (i.e. a “slave race” like the house elves in Harry Potter, or John Winchester’s parenting in Supernatural)

if you have any recommendations for fanfics (written by you or someone else) that address these (or similar) things, and would like to recommend them to me by reblogging/replying/messaging me, you will have my eternal gratitude, and a thank you message if i end up citing something you recommended in my paper!

“ If you are a woman, everything revolves around whether or not someone wants to fuck you. Instead of addressing “all bodies are beautiful” how about, “it is not necessary to be universally fuckable”? ”

This is not a trivial distinction, in my unsolicited opinion.

really my only problem with last wednesday’s episode of supernatch is that they didn’t fill a kiddie pool with the hellhound’s blood and splash around in it.

“I have dermatographia, a condition in which one’s immune system releases excessive amounts of histamine, causing capillaries to dilate and welts to appear (lasting about thirty minutes) when the hypersensitive skin’s surface is lightly scratched. This allows me to painlessly draw on my skin with just enough time to photograph the results. Even though I can direct this ephemeral response by drawing on it, the reaction is involuntary, much like the uncontrollable nature of a blush.”

I draw dicks on his arm

We play tic-tac-toe on her arm
