NB: these fics are listed chronologically within their categories, so the best stuff is probably at the end.

If you’d like to make a podfic or translation or remix or do something else inspired by one of my fics, I am thrilled and delighted; please go ahead. I would ask that you please drop me a link, and if you’re all right with it I’ll rec and put a link on the fic and my masterlists. My fic ‘Unforgivable’ is a bit of an exception to the remix/inspired by rule - I will almost certainly be fine if you do anything with it, but it’s the one I have a special attachment to so please ask me first. Thanks very much.

I love comments on older fics. I am always thrilled to get concrit, even if it’s just ‘I didn’t like this part’ - you don’t need to analyse my writing to have a perspective, although obviously analysis is fantastic. Go for it, you’ll make me happy!

Hiya! Wow, it’s been so long - not counting the odd post about horrifying current events, at least. I can’t remember the last time I was quiet for so long. (Pause for people who know me IRL to be like, ‘we can’t either. We were enjoying it…’) Things are pretty good, though - a bit skint but not too bad, and there’s been lots of gorgeous autumn weather. Cool weather and turning leaves and bright blue skies <333

I did SO MANY THINGS in August, and then basically spent September recovering. August was working a lot of twelve-hour days (it’s the busy season), going away for two long weekends, and seeing twelve different flats before I found this one. Plus actually moving!

stuff about moving & the new place )

Meme time, I think; it’d be nice to chat properly.

Give me one or more characters, and I'll tell you:

First impression
Impression now
Favorite moment
Ship them with
Idea for a story
Unpopular opinion
Favorite relationship
BROTP
NOTP
Favorite headcanon

Remember, YOU'RE TOTALLY ALLOWED TO DISAGREE WITH MY OPINIONS IN PUBLIC. Just be prepared for me to be all 'no, because...' but none of that means I like you any less :)

Fandoms: Potter, Buffy/Angel, MCU (including TV except for Agents of Shield), Steven Universe, Supergirl/Flash/Arrow, Glee, Dark Angel, AtLA/Korra, Orphan Black, Doctor Who, White Collar, Black Butler, #6, Pretty Little Liars. Also Diana Wynne Jones books. IDK I'm pretty flexible :D

Orrrr if that all seems too much like hard work, we can turn to my favourite old stand-by: you ask me a question, and I'll answer and also ask you a question that's somehow related to yours.

Today I taught my advanced English class “police brutality”, and “suppression”, and “ballot box”, and “riot police”. I taught them the difference between “hit” and “beat”. My peacefully-protesting Catalan student was beaten by the police. The EU said this was an internal matter and a girl had every finger systematically broken by police. I’m sick with rage.

This is genocide

So I’ve been following the situation of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, in desultory fashion, for a couple of years. The UN’s said they’re “the most persecuted minority” in the world, and that’s before the current disaster. They’re denied citizenship in Myanmar, even when born there, so they’re stateless, which renders them unable to leave (no passports) or access basic government services including education and healthcare.

And the situation has devolved horribly.

On the 25th of August, Rohingya militants attacked security services, and are still fighting the army. The army has unleashed a horrifying wave of violence in response - it’s unambiguously ethnic cleansing, and has four of the five identifying signs of genocide. The Myanmar army is trying to wipe out the Rohingyas entirely.

They’re burning villages. They’re shooting fleeing civilians en masse and drowning children. The government is refusing to let aid workers through with medicine, food, and water. There have been convulsions of violence before, particularly last year and in 2012, described by the UN as “crimes against humanity”; there was gang rape and torture, murder and disappearances. This is worse.

I know there’s Brexit and Irma and Harvey and the possibility of nuclear war, but we can’t let a million people get swept under the rug. They’re fleeing for their lives into Bangladesh, but the border is technically closed and border guards have refused hundreds of people trying to get out. Bangladesh has called for an end to the violence but it’s not enough. Thousands of people are now trapped in the mountains, their homes burnt behind them, the borders closed to them, the government refusing to let aid workers in and security forces closing in.

I wrote to my MP yesterday asking her to do something about this. The text is under a cut below - it’s not in any way good, really, but it is text you can use. Amnesty International has an article about the situation, with a a petition to sign, and a link to the Twitter of the Commander-in-Chief of Myanmar’s army, and a suggested Tweet. We’ve got to show we care, and that we’re paying attention. Otherwise the Myanmar government will have no incentive to stop this.

Sooo slight communication hiccup on my end, and now I've got an extra ticket for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child this Wednesday, 30th August. It's for both Part 1 and Part 2, i.e. the equivalent of a matinee and then the evening play. It's £200 overall (£100 for each part, and good seats!) and starts at 2pm, and you can do your own thing or come with me, [tumblr.com profile] januarium, and the marvellous [personal profile] drinkingcocoa while she's here from across the pond :D

I can return the ticket (probably?) or sell it (definitely), but I'd muuuuuuch rather bring one of you guys who's asked how I keep getting tickets :D Message me or comment here or email at lokifan.lj AT gmail.com

COME SEE IT WITH US IT IS SO SO FANTASTIC
lokifan: pouty Prompto from Final Fantasy 15 (Prompto: pouty)
He is a total baby when he doesn’t get what he wants.

We don’t see loads of this in the game, but in the game he’s in control basically 100% of the time. (“Death’s chill wind” is about the only time he seems actually taken by surprise, and he is actually looking for death, so…) But sometimes it must happen, and he reacts without the maturity we might hope for from a zillion-year-old statesman.

Ardyn is a very specific combination of getting everything he wants, thanks to being a Machiavellian mastermind with superpowers and a cabinet position, and getting nothing that he really wants, having been supremely fucked over by the gods. So I reckon it’s really easy for him to feel deeply thwarted by minor problems. Every time something doesn’t go his way it is YET ANOTHER INJUSTICE WROUGHT BY THIS CRUEL WORLD AND ITS CRUELLER GODS. *shakes fist at the sky*

Especially if it relates to Noct getting something Ardyn wanted. He haaaaates that.

Five things

lokifan: black Converse against a black background (Default)
1. Apparently my fic Aftershocks was one of the most popular Harry/Draco fics on AO3 in 2016! At least as far as drarry-specific-recs can tell, from hits. What??? It’s like 2k of after-sex fingering. But then I guess that would back up my theory that a lot of the most successful fic (in terms of attention/love) combines a big pairing with an offbeat kink.

2. I have a problem with my left eye which will probably not get better, but is far from a disaster. (I can’t read with the left eye alone, but my peripheral vision is fine and my right eye compensates, so I barely notice having a floater in the left eye.) Mostly I notice when I do my eye make-up. Right now I’m relieved that the attempt at making it better - two INJECTIONS INTO MY EYE, NEEDLE IN MY ACTUAL EYE OH MY GOD - is probably over.

3. I signed up for [community profile] hd_erised. I was in at nine minutes and the very last sign-up. Now the waiting for my assignment begins! I wouldn’t be surprised if this was my last fic for that fest - although not my last HP fic! - so. Yeah. I’m pleased I got in, although we’ll see how I feel once I get my match!

4. Friday I went to see ‘Queers’ with [personal profile] kabal42, [profile] magicatmungos, and [personal profile] mokatiki. It was gorgeous - four monologues from queer men (I think three gay, one trans and straight) going forward in time. They were funny, heartbreaking, clever, and also really wonderfully expressed some of the ambiguity within the community about respectability, and legality, and the feeling of loss that comes with not being an “outlaw” as you become accepted. That’s not something I see talked about much, but it’s a very real tension. Also different varieties of happy endings. <3

5. I’m sorry I’m SO TERRIBLE at comment replies right now. It’s 100000% not you, it’s me.

There has been so much DOING OF THINGS in the last few months and I’d really like to document it. In an attempt to make sure (a) I actually do that and (b) that it’s not too unwieldy, or rather totally unreadable, I’m gonna steal [personal profile] copperbadge’s Three Things format: three bullet points and an extra per item.

London Pride 2017

Sunday, 9 July 2017 03:02 pm
lokifan: by unlockable (Korra/Asami)
So London Pride was amaaaaazing, as ever :D I showed up at 3 to start marching at 4, because London Pride is massive and our streets are narrow so even Section C didn’t get started for a good three hours. I marched with the National Union of Teachers - I was with two of my best friends, who’re both in the NUT, and my god I’d like to be unionised. So it was me, Violet and the Dark Lady (this was their first married Pride! ♥), Miss Godfrey, and Miss Godfrey’s lovely colleague and his husband. Lovely Colleague is a newly-qualified teacher and has been told Miss Godfrey is a bad influence (their school is a HORRORSHOW to the extent that Miss Godfrey is probably about to blow the whistle on SATS-results-fiddling). His lovely Korean husband was having his FIRST PRIDE EVER and they both clearly had a blast.

GUYS. I didn’t tell you about the Beatles night.

So a month or so ago it was the fiftieth anniversary of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The next night was Friday and a Hackney club planned a Sgt Pepper night, with DJs playing Beatles (and etc) tracks and a live band doing the whole album.

I went with my friends Violet and the Dark Lady and we were SUPER EXCITED. I love the Beatles and the Dark Lady is a superfan, as are her parents - she was almost named Rita because of the song (and Rita Hayworth). So I got this genuine 60s Sgt-Pepper-style jacket in pure white, and the Dark Lady did incredibly elaborate Twiggy eye make-up, and Violet got out her mod boots. We predrank and had pizza at theirs and headed to the club.

When we arrived the booths were full of late-middle-aged people, and the dancefloor had clumps of young people who’d dressed up like us. We got drinks and listened to Beatles tracks like Come Together, which I fucking adore, and talked about being feminist John Lennon fans and how your favourite Beatle changes as you age. It was great. We also noticed the guy who played Lord Percy on Blackadder in a booth.

Eventually the live band came on. first bad sign )

GUYS. I wanted you to be the first to know. I’ve fallen in love.

Their name is Final Fantasy XV.

I’m? In a?? Video game fandom??????? IT IS SUPER WEIRD. I DON’T EVEN OWN A PS4. I CANNOT INTERACT WITH THIS CANON THE WAY IT’S MEANT TO BE DONE. I AM REDUCED TO YOUTUBE PLAYTHROUGHS AND VERY PASSIONATE TEXTING WITH MY FRIEND WHILE HE PLAYS.

Let me explain.

So I am very aware I’ve barely posted recently -- about three times a month since March, and this last month it FEELS like I’ve barely posted because it’s almost all been about wider-world stuff. (And even then, I’ve been so quiet given what’s happening? Because British politics right now is BANANAS.)

This is mostly because I’ve been working a LOT, and playing pretty hard too. I really want to do a catch-up post on all the RL things, and also about a bunch of the fannish things I’ve been doing (not so much on the writing of fic, sadly -- it’s been pathetic) and etc. Buuut right now I need to tell you about Final Fantasy XV because it is EATING MY HEAD.

I don’t think I’ve ever been this emotionally compromised over a fandom. I cried down the phone to [livejournal.com profile] son_of_darkness (aka [tumblr.com profile] bestchocobro/[tumblr.com profile] sodsta) for the better part of an hour over the ending, and was only comforted when we made kinkfic plans.

It’s really very much all [livejournal.com profile] son_of_darkness’s fault.

so whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat at least I had the strength to fight )

It’s so great. Like, it’s incredibly awesome as a canon, and it kinda fits my fic interests and skills (dark kinky porn, romantic kinky porn, and punny banter) to a T. Plus I love reading hurt/comfort, and I’ve barely written it ever but I just signed up for a [community profile] hc_bingo card because I do wanna write more h/c and this canon is RIDICULOUSLY good for it.

And these CHARACTERS. I love them ridiculously much. There’s this enormous muscled bro who’s so kind and connects with people, and lashes out against his prince when their friend is seriously hurt, and his whole family legacy is shielding the king but it’s impossible. And exasperated, sarcastic, fond, kind Iggy, who cooks for them and is the prince’s adviser and strategist and mum friend, and so hardcore and so practical and so lovely. (He reminds me of Giles in a lot of ways, including the sudden darkness of what he’s willing to do to protect his warrior.) Both these guys are so young and trying to take care of their prince, who’s even younger. Prompto, the best friend, he’s funny and makes awful puns and takes selfies with the daemons they fight; he’s the prince’s only friend from outside the courtly world and he gets crushes on all the girls and he’s screamingly vulnerable. His parents were never home, he was a fat (and self-hating) & friendless kid, he worries that he’s worthless and is desperate to earn his place. That his origins with the enemy nation will be discovered and his friends will reject him. And then the villain tricks his best friend into pushing him off a moving train.

SPEAKING OF. OMG, the main character, Noct. He’s a sarcastic little bitch, and he sleeps all the time, and he hates vegetables despite Iggy’s best efforts, and he has back and leg pain from a daemon attack as a kid, and he had this miserable lonely childhood even as the other kids were desperate to glom onto a prince. And he yearns to play games at the arcade and eat junk food and be a normal kid but he never whines about it. He’s so scared that he won’t be enough, that he won’t be heroic or brave enough to do his duty, but he is, of course he is, he doesn’t flinch. *cries forever*

I LOVE THEM. I want to write h/c for their pain and dark porn for their encounters with the amazing, amazing villain. He’s super manipulative and clever and totally wins through his defeat, and he likes emotionally torturing the heroes and touching their faces and being super-sleazy. He’s a delight.

I have fallen HARD for a new fandom, guys. Not leaving any of my old ones, of course, but WOW.

This latest attack has hit closer to home than any attack before. I have students at Finsbury Park mosque; I have a student living on Seven Sisters Road; it’s two tube stops from me. There were friends-of-friends on Facebook whose mums go to that mosque and hadn’t heard from them yet; an old National Union of Students LGBTQ acquaintance goes there. Today has not been my best day ever. And given that both ISIS-inspired dickheads and Islamophobic terrorists seem to love attacking during Ramadan I am worrying a bit about Eid.

I keep thinking about the imam there, Mohammed Mahmoud. He’s just thirty years old, and he heard the crash and ran out. By then a group of men had the suspect pinned down, and they were beating him - incredibly scary, but understandable, given they’d just seen him mow people down. (And specifically mow down people who had circled round an elderly man having a medical emergency, wanting to help. I don’t understand.) And the imam yelled at them - don’t hurt him, just wait for the police. Then he and a group of others stayed there, protecting this person they’d just seen gleefully murder people they knew, for what must have been an endless eight minutes until the police arrived.

A few hours earlier I’d been watching Cursed Child again with two good friends.

HARRY: She’s a murderer, and we’re not.

HERMIONE: We have to be better than them.

RON: It’s really annoying but it’s what we learnt.

More comment to follow. (I have a crazy busy weekend ahead of me.)
lokifan: Text "London", sepia Big Ben & stamps (London)
I was planning to post on Sunday - either about the beautiful little London moment I had Saturday evening, or the Manchester bombing, or both. And then both of those turned out to be… well, not inappropriate, but taking a lot more tweaking than I had bandwidth for. (I was really tired this weekend and ended up missing a housewarming I’d been looking forward to - although I did not miss the most hilarious Beatles-themed night ever, of which more later.)

This attack came closer to people I know than any I’ve seen before; I’ve been out in that area multiple times, it’s one of my favourite areas of London for daytime fun and really close to where a BFF used to work, and also close to a gay clubbing district. A friend of mine missed being in the area by two minutes thanks to a late bus. I mean I’m not like, ‘shaken up’ as I’d describe it, but I definitely had an eek moment looking at the map and recognising how very well I know it.

I am somewhat sceptical of the value of stoicism, even as I think there’s definite benefit to be had, mentally as well as practically, from moving on and not making a fuss. I think it’s fine to admit when we’re scared, even as there’s benefit to us mentally in considering ourselves warriors and not backing down. So I feel a bit torn on the tone to take here; I don’t want to dismiss the tragedy of the deaths and injuries, or make people feel bad if they do feel scared. Several people (especially my students, none of whom are natives) have told me they feel anxious and I think those people probably also feel a bit shamed by all the RARGH LONDON’S NOT SCARED stuff.

But also, nation reeling, New York Times? Are we fuck. We’ve been blown up by a better class of bastard than this.

this turned out longer than I thought because I don’t know how I feel )

I’ve been meaning to repost this. It’s really beautiful.
