A rant

I don't give much credit to anybody who blames anything about Hillary or her campaign for Trump's election. Hillary would be preparing for the presidency today if a lot of people hadn't had the following thought process: "It's vitally important that Trump not be elected. The only way that can happen is for Hillary to win. But I can gain some small advantage for myself by making her job harder, and I'm sure that there won't be too many people who think like me. So I'll give Trump some help for my own benefit." Most of our national and local news organizations seem to have done this. A lot of leftists seem to have done this. And a whole lot of moderate Republicans have done this.

So I don't think it is at all appropriate for anyone, especially any of these people, to criticize the Americans who did the most of any of us to stop Trump before he was elected. If you are in this group, I don't need you to apologize (as much as Les Moonves in tears on prime time CBS may be warranted) but I do need you to step up. If you are a news professional, stop reporting Trump's lies and opinions and stratagems. Stand in solidarity with the news organizations he targets and ask their questions for them if needed. If you are a leftist, call your reps, help the Democratic Party organize against Trump, and hold them to stand firm. If you are a moderate Republican, the time has come to publicly break with Trump. If the rest of the GOP is unwilling to abandon him, change parties, especially if you hold elected office.

We can argue about policy once we're done dealing with fascists.

Nominations are open for Jukebox Fest 2015, and the songs nominated so far have some really great stuff in them. So if you've been thinking of finding a spring fic project, you may want to check it out. ETA fixed markup

So, y'all should read the stories (plural!) I received for Yuletide. Item 47: Do you like Marvel movies? ) Revolution 9: Do you like the weird? )

Item 47 (Marvel Short Film)
I love how this story shows some of the effects of the Battle of New York. One of the great things about the MCU is the expanded canon, and this short shows that off nicely. I'm happy to read crossover with the rest of the MCU, as long as these two are the focus of the story.
Extremely optional prompt #1: What are these two up to now after the fall of SHIELD?
Extremely optional prompt #2: What was it like for these two to adjust to their new jobs? 

Celestial Matters - Richard Garfinkle
This is a world that's fascinatingly similar and different to ours. There's a lot going on, and it's brain-expanding to think about.
Extremely optional prompt #1: What's this world like in other places and/or times?
Extremely optional prompt #2: How did this world change after the events of the book?
 

#GoGetThoseGeckos | Foton-M4 Mission
This whole mission is a wonderful setup for a science fiction story. It's ridiculous and tragic at the same time. I'm fine with ridiculous crack on this one, or crossover, as long as the geckos (or fruit flies) get some agency.
Extremely optional prompt #1: a fix-it fic that saves the geckos in some way.
Extremely optional prompt #2: A tragic story that gives the geckos or flies some part in the story other than unknowing victims. Did they sabotage the satellite themselves for some reason?

Revolution 9 (Song) 
This is the crazy one, but if you signed up for it, I believe you can do it. Any sort of narrative made out of the content of this song would just be awesome.

So, that fic exchange from my last post? I got a wonderful story about the Epliplectic Bicycle with lots of other amazing Edward Gorey references. Written by the wonderful [archiveofourown.org profile] marginaliana . There's Utter Zoo creatures! And abecedary bits! So you know you want to go read it.

I also wrote a story about Wild Things and boats if you enjoy such things.

  1. A Visit to William Blake's Inn - Nancy Willard


    This book is so beautiful and I love the feel of it. It's neat to have a story that's a bit related to Blake's worldview.
    Extremely optional prompt #1: Do these characters stay in touch with each other throughout their lives?
    Extremely optional prompt #2: How did these characters find themselves going to William Blake's Inn?


  2. Celestial Matters - Richard Garfinkle

  3. Fox Steals Cell Phone and Sends Text Message (November 2012 News Story)

    I love the idea that we have this text that originated in some way from a non-human sender. It's very tempting to try to get some meaning out of it.
    Extremely optional prompt #1: What was this event like from the fox's point of view?
    Extremely optional prompt #2: Does the text have some sort of meaning?


  4. Revolution 9

    This is the crazy one, but if you signed up for it, I believe you can do it. Any sort of narrative made out of the content of this song would just be awesome.

It's a tale of the epic war of the Tweetle Beetles, pulling in theology and myth from elsewhere in Fox in Socks.
