So much better than that Desert Bluffs place.

Why is femslash the smallest genre in the world of fanfiction? Why is femslash the most underrepresented relationship type by a sizeable margin? More importantly, why is it that almost all femslash writers are queer women? Male slash pairings are written by straight women, queer women, and even some men (I say “even” because men are rarer than a two dollar bill in the world of fanfiction) and they’re read by a mostly female audience. Femslash has a completely different ideology, because it’s almost exclusively written and consumed by the community it portrays. Unlike a straight girl writing about two boys having sex (and I guarantee that they’re two conventionally attractive white boys whose female love interests have been deemed either worthy of death or asexual by the fandom), femslash is written by those whose identities and personal narratives are reflected in the stories themselves. Maybe the writer of that erotic scene hasn’t had sex with a girl yet, but damn, she has thought about it a lot. That queer author writes two girls falling in love even if they’re straight in the original work because two girls falling in love means something to her and to so many people like her, and it’s important that she sees herself in a piece of media whose canon forgets she exists. One of the great frustrations of LGBTQ media is the fact that so little of our representations end up coming from LGBTQ-identified creators, and thus we see inaccurate portrayals with limited diversity. Femslash exists because we were sick of being told we didn’t exist, so we wrote ourselves into their stories. excerpt from a very long piece I’ve been working on for autostraddle about femslash and why there’s so little of it (and why we need to make more of it NOW)

I have an intense desire to see a live show of Welcome To Night Vale preformed at the Sydney Opera House.

  • me during the purge: (breaks all the strange and dated laws that police don't really enforce anymore. like that bullshit about not being able to keep a donkey in your bathtub? it's time to truly live.)

I remind you, he is a hero. I remind you that my boyfriend is a hero.
The Weather for WtNV #50 (Ghost Story by Charming Disaster) was brutal and gave me a lot of feelings so I tried to deal with them by drawing this. Spoiler: It didn’t help.
Happy Anniversary, Cecil and Carlos.
I also made a still version of this here.

It’s like Stephen King and Neil Gaiman started building a town in The Sims and then just… Left it running. For years.
