It's the time of year for [community profile] femslashex! I've asked for either fic or art on all of my prompts and would be thrilled with either. All but one of my requests are canons with a visual component, but (as a long-time comics fan!) I'm very happy with different interpretations of the characters so don't feel tied down to their literal canon appearances if there's something different you want to do. The same goes for fic - while obviously I enjoy the tone of each canon, if you want to write something at odds with it, or from a different POV or using original characters to explore the canon pairings, that's all good too.

General likes: plot, women working together against common enemies, non-mundane AUs (coffee shop in space yes, coffee shop in modern day Earth no)

General dislikes: rape/non-con, non-canon character deaths, adult/teen or adult/child sexual interaction, mindless zombies, apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic AUs, character or pairing bashing

I've tried to put several prompts for each of the fandoms and a general idea of what I like about them, but if you want to do something else completely, please do! These are just suggestions.

Fandoms

American Gods (TV) )

Crossover - Denise Bryson (Twin Peaks)/Dana Scully (The X-Files) )

Marvel 616 )

Murder Most Unladylike Series - Robyn Stevens )

Today's random thought

Sometimes I forget that I'm actually LGBTQ+.

Not because of any personal experience of acephobia/being ostracized but just because being defined as such always seemed so ... sex-centric? Almost always, I see people defining their "LGBTQ+"-ness via the metric of, "Who am I (sexually) attracted to," and for asexual me, that never helped me connect with the umbrella identity.

A Tale of Two Sisters (6/10) → A bit too slow for my tastes. I didn't like Su-Mi at all and it wasn't nearly as scary as I'd hoped it would be. Though I do like the fact that you end up going, "Oh, shit," when you look back at the rest of the movie after the twist was revealed.

Oculus (7/10) → Very much enjoyed the build-up of the movie but it kinda fell flat for me in the climax; it ... didn't really feel like it had a climax? But the way the past and the future timelines progressively blended together throughout the entire movie was really good. Spoilers? )

Cartoons

Steven Universe S05E01-04 (9/10)

The more I think about it, the more I believe that Yellow Diamond was the one behind Pink Diamond's death. Also, I totally did not expect them to go in that direction with Lars holy shit o_O

Comics/Graphic Novels

Elseworlds Trilogy

  • Superman's Metropolis (2/5)
  • Batman: Nosferatu (3/5)
  • Wonder Woman: The Blue Amazon (1/5)

According to Wikipedia, all the stories are based on German expressionist films. Overall not really my thing in terms of art or writing. The latter felt like the writer was trying too hard to be ... idk if "deep" is the right word.

I liked the Wonder Woman issue the least. While I like the background that was given to her, the story in its entirety captured nothing of Diana's essence. Someone on Goodreads said that they focused on Diana's attractiveness and nothing else as her main defining characteristic and that's pretty accurate. Superman's and Batman's stories still managed to make me go, "Yep, that's Supes and Bats," and maintained the core of the characters but The Blue Amazon only got "wtf?????" out of me.

I had this long-ish entry planned out to talk about a conversation I had on Twitter the other day but honestly just the thought of it lowkey annoys me so have a good Tweet thread instead:
