Rage/Confusion Mark III

This is going to be, I suspect, another tumblr of random. Expect comics, porn, art, politics, porn, adorable animals, porn, etc., and porn. In case that wasn't clear? If looking at sexually explicit material is illegal for you -- or just not your bag -- go elsewhere, please. If you're looking for something more substantial, do check out my dreamwidth, where you'll find things that aren't on my AO3 or even my old website.

Me: Black; genderqueer; 38; poly and married to hir; Mommy to her; Girlfriend to her; writer of smut; attention whore. Pronouns: she, her.

This? Is a Timblr.

Refresh The Fancast For the Love of God: Avan Jogia as Sirius Black

"Sirius was lounging in his chair at his ease, tilting it back on two legs. He was very good-looking, his dark hair fell into his eyes with a sort of casual elegance neither James’ nor Harry’s could ever have achieved, and a girl sitting behind him was eyeing him hopefully, though he didn’t seem to have noticed."

So yesterday I found out that Randy Queen (artist of DarkChylde) filed a bunch of DMCA takedown notices to Tumblr to remove posts of his covers on this blog (the entire posts, not just the images).  I’ve also gotten messages from other users that he’s had their stuff removed too (redraws, etc that have been featured here).  Non-critical Tumblr posts of his art/covers and those praising his work appear to be unaffected.

I’m writing this to let other people who run sites that might have criticized his work ( thehawkeyeinitiative, bikiniarmorbattledamage, boobsdontworkthatway, repair-her-armor, comicartcorrections etc) know that he seems to use DMCA takedowns to remove pages that are critical of his work.  And, to be prepared that he might have Tumblr remove your posts without warning (there was no prior communication of any kind, or conventional requests for removal).

Also, if you’ve submitted redraws of his stuff to these sites, you might want to ask them to put them private for now (if he complains about a submission you’ve made, Tumblr will count it as a complaint against your account).

To date, Mr. Queen is the only artist who has taken this kind of action - other artists and publishers seem to understand Escher Girls & other similar sites are fair use and criticism, and that fan discussion, positive or negative, is important and helpful to their business. (In fact, the creators I’ve interacted with are either fans of EG, or expressed disagreement but know that it’s fan criticism.)

If anybody is curious about what his DarkChylde art looked like and why they were featured on this blog you can find them here.

(Don’t harass him on his Facebook or Tumblr by the way.  I’m not interested in having a feud with him, just letting people know what’s going on.)

One chart says it all about the government and female bodies 

We’re only halfway through 2014, and state legislators have already introduced a whopping 468 restrictions intended to limit, control or otherwise regulate women’s reproductive rights.

How many comparable bills have been introduced to regulate men’s reproductive health care during this period? Zero. 

Something’s very wrong with this picture.

What would restricting male reproductive rights even look like? | Follow micdotcom

  • "Thank you for the quote, I’ll keep it in mind and get back to you sometime when I’m able to commission you!"
  • "That’s a little out of my budget for the time being, but thank you for your time. I’ll contact you again if/when I am able to pay!"
  • "I appreciate the quote, but i’ve decided to wait on the commission, thank you!"
  • "I understand your prices and that they are fair, but I am unable to afford this for the time being! Good luck on the rest of your commissions."

What NOT to say when an artist quotes your commission higher than you expected:

  • "WAHHHHHHHHHHH"
  • ”@-@ Holy crap that’s expensive!!”
  • "Could you maybe give me a tumblr follower discount? :3"
  • "Your prices are too high!!!!"
  • "Really?? Just for a sketch? I could draw it for half that!!"

Treat artists like human beings. We gotta eat too. Commissioning an artist is not different from any other contract work. You’re not going to ask your dentist for a discounted root canal or tell your contractor his cabinets are too expensive, don’t ask artists to change their prices because you perceive them as too high. More than likely, an artist taking commissions from the internet are drastically under charging themselves already. Please be respectful and understanding that art is a skill and not a favour.

Man, what to even *do* with this episode!

This is one of the eps which, for me, contained twists which were mostly unpredictable — yay!

And also showed a lot of well-used research on the causes of small plane crashes — yay!

But of course y’all know I’m here for the relationship development, right? Right.

Vague spoilers below, pretty much none involving the A-plot.

My favorite thing about Lucy Liu is that she some how has a different “you’ve got to be fucking kidding me” face for every one of his tantrums

One reason I’m always going to have a mental disconnect between Jason Todd’s original time in comics and his post-resurrection stuff is because I feel like there was something fundamentally 1980s about his time as Robin.

It’s not just the whole post-DKR let’s-make-comics-gritty-and-grimdark thing, either. The whole concept of New York’s criminal underbelly was a cultural mainstay in everything from that era in a way that just isn’t true anymore. It’s not that there aren’t still teen street toughs anymore, obviously, but “teen street tough” was a whole Social Issue in the 80s. 

And basically all of Jason’s stories in that scant handful of comics are incredibly eighties stories in that way — black markets and drug dealers and shady criminals who prey on the weak, people brutalised and traumatised and killed by their contact with this seedy netherworld. 

So, like, it doesn’t translate to a sliding timeline without a whole lot of cognitive disconnect. Boogeymen and social problems of 1985 are completely nonsensical if you make it so they were in 2005, because New York’s crime rate was down by like eighty percent or something by then. It was an entirely different cultural conversation taking place about what that city meant, narratively. 

Jason Todd is a messed-up, violent little dude from a messed-up, violent world, trying to hold back a tide of terrors that people genuinely believed was going to swallow the daylight world entirely. So there’s always a cognitive disconnect when you make his past more recent.

Maybe that works in the character’s favour — it makes him seem out of place, out of step, in stories about his current life. But it makes it nearly impossible to properly tell stories about when he was Robin, and have them mean the same thing they did then. 

You know, I hadn’t thought about it that way, but this probably has a lot to do with why my rough-and-tumble Batfamily-and-a-little-beyond timeline is what it is, and why it stays so *solid* in my brain when I change so MANY other things about canon (and ‘canon’, and fanon) to suit me.

Having Jay born in 1983 or so (And Bruce in 1960, and Babs somewhere between 1969-1972, and Dick and most of the other Titans in the mid-70s, and Cass in the early 80s, and Tim and Steph in the mid-80s, and Damian in the early 90s, and etc.) just makes more *sense* to me in terms of their characters, and how I think of them, and their particular issues.

(Okay, not so much Damian, but…)

Part of that is the mish-mash of 90s comics, where what they imagined for the internet is downright embarrassing and bizarre, but what they imagined for artificial intelligence and robotics was — and is — science fiction.

Part of that is the fact that Gotham is and always has been a special case. Never quite an American city, as opposed to a city of Extremes that exists everywhere and nowhere. A city that looks like everything from London at the height (and depth) of the Industrial Revolution, to a cartoonist’s bad trip, to a steampunk fantasy, to Detroit’s worst nightmare.

And that’s just what you get in one *week’s* worth of comics.

When I think to myself “well, cities weren’t really like this in the 90s and the 00s”, I just point to No Man’s Land and remind myself that comics canon always wants me to know that Gotham is Gotham, built on a pentagram, seasoned with blood sacrifice, built on the nightmares and ambitions and atrocities of Waynes and Arkhams and everyone who got in their way.

But…

I still can’t advance my timeline any farther.

My reasoning usually has more to with my complete failure to imagine Thomas and Martha young in any era past the 60s, though.

Who knows what tomorrow(’s AU) will bring, though?
