AMAZON ANNOUNCES FRANCHISE-BASED FANFIC PUBLISHING ENGINE -
READ THIS Gav wrote it while I screamed at her about Fanlib and franchise tie-ins and flailed a lot on twitter. A great summary of the many many problems with amazon’s new scheme to profit from fans writing fanfic.
I am reading this while on my lunch and Boss Lady keeps looking over at me because i CANNOT STOP LAUGHING.
no. no. no. no.No. No. No. No. NO. NO. NO. NO!!!!!!! WE CAN’T EVEN WRITE ABOUT DOCTOR WHO, SHERLOCK, SUPERNATURAL, THE AVENGERS, HARRY POTTER, THE HOBBIT, LORD OF THE RINGS, ETC. AND DO THEY HONSETLY THINK PEOPLE WILL STOP USING TUMBLR OR OTHER SITES TO PUBLISH REALLY GREAT FANFICTION. WOW THEY ARE FREAKING IDIOTS. I HOPE THEY ALL GET SERIOUSLY SCREWED OVER AND END UP BANKRUPT FOR TRYING TO MAKE FANFICTION A PROFIT. THATS THE BEAUTY OF FANDOMS. ITS ONE GIGANTIC GROUP OF FRIENDS OBSESSING OVER THEIR FAVORITE SHOWS, BANDS, BOOKS, MOVIES, ETC. IT IS NOT A FREAKING BUISNESS VENTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
luv this response
Now that I’m over my initial “not this bullshit again” response, I’m almost looking forward to this round of watching commercialized fanfic ventures fail. Because I have no doubt it will, but there’s a whole new wave of fans that are going to go OH HELL NO in entertaining ways. *makes popcorn and fires up the indignation engines*
Spaceships glowing blue in the dawn as we leave Florida headed across the Atlantic.
All Col. Hadfield’s photos are amazing but this one is spectacular — I actually feel like I’m there looking past spaceships and seeing the world underneath. I was going to say unreal, but it’s the opposite, it’s REAL. <3
Steve Rogers is not afraid of strong women.
Steve Rogers is not afraid of strong women.
Stop it with the fic where Steve is terrified of Natasha, or Maria, or Pepper, or guh, Darcy. I guess people think it’s cute, or whatever.
Seriously. Strong women don’t make Steve scared, they make him swoon.
The only thing Steve is afraid of is that strong women won’t like him.
Acting like Steve is afraid of women also ignores one of my favorite moments of the movies, where Steve isn’t sure if Clint can be trusted, but he looks to Natasha and it just takes one nod from her for Steve to be okay with it. He respects people who know what they’re doing, male or female.

We [Fraction and his wife, Kelly Sue DeConnick] were pregnant at the time, and while I was out there I started to realize that if I had a daughter, there would come a day when I would have to apologize to her for my profession. I would have to apologize for the way it treats and speaks to women readers, and the way it treats its female characters.
I knew that if we had a daughter, because I know my wife and I know the kind of girl she wants to raise and I know the kind of girl I want to raise, she was going to look at what I did for a living and want to know how the fuck I could stomach it. How could I sell her out like that?” Fraction continued. “That conversation is still coming, and I’m bracing for it in the way that some dads brace for their daughter’s first date or boyfriend. I became acutely aware that I had sort of done that thing that lots of privileged hetero cisgendered white dudes do. ‘I’m cool with women, and that’s enough.’ It’s not enough. It’s embarrassing to say, because we somehow have attached shame to learning and evolving our opinions, culturally, but I became aware that there was a deficiency of and to women in my work, and all I could do at that moment was take care of my side of the street. —

HOLY SHIT, MATT FRACTION.
i literally ran out of words because he took them and described everything so eloquently holy shit.
it’s not enough.
NOPE OKAY, COMING BACK TO IT. found some words.
i spent a good amount of time over the past seven years becoming very intimate with parts of nerd-culture, specifically video game designers. i know that comic book creators and video game designers are not, in fact, the same people, but there are huge overlapping similarities.
and y’know what- most of the people who design video games? they’re nice dudes. often they are married, with kids, and higher education. they tend to be more liberal and democratic, and can engage in really smart and educated discussions.
and it always killed me a little that whenever i brought up misogyny and male-gaze and the objectification of women, it was met with either resistance and brushing off, or a sad acknowledgement and a shrug of ‘well-what-can-we-do.’ and i cannot figure out which is worse.
these guys are not BAD GUYS, but GOD DAMMIT IT’S NOT ENOUGH.
you cannot change something if you don’t even try, if you just allow it to happen, if you just shrug and say WELL THAT’S JUST THE INDUSTRY OKAY WHAT CAN WE DO. I TRIED TO TALK TO MY BOSS ABOUT IT AND THEN THE PARENT COMPANY SAID NO, SO WELP. DID MY PART.
and that’s why matt fraction’s response is amazing. he realized it, he acknowledged it, and he worked to change a part of it.
i know that there are tons of indie games and comics out there that are growing more and more amazing and feminist/equality driven and that is great. but it’s nice to see this, too.
also, any privileged hetero cisgendered white dude calling himself such.
