A Muse of Fyre

I like to classify myself as an executive fangirl, from the merry old land of Scot. I've been going by Fyre online since 2001, and doubt that'll change anytime soon.
I watch many a thing, and will frequently analyse anything I watch to death. Too many years of studying too many way of analysing too many things! It makes life fun :D

I’m not sure when I decided it would be a brilliant idea to write from the POV of an African-American girl in 1980s New York. But she’s one of my leads and she wants POV. Alternating POVs with a woman who talks in an ever-so-proper Julie-Andrews-style English accent.

Sometimes, I think I choose the challenging things to see if this will finally be the thing to make my brain essplode.

People who don’t like Emma Woodhouse as a character because: she’s too rich for anything to really go that wrong in her life, and she’s an insufferable know-it-all, and she meddles in the love-lives of her friends because ‘she knows best’?

Idk man, that’s pretty much Mr Darcy though. And he’s on merchandise tote bags. People seem to like him just fine.

1700 words of original stuff written at work today. One day, someone is going to catch me, but it is not this day! First time writing this character as well. It’s all very exciting!

[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x

Y’know, I’ve finally put my finger on what ticked me off about the LotR/Hobbit films specifically in relation to the ladies.

I was thinking about it when a gifset of the Eowyn-cooking-scene showed up. I hate that scene. I hate it with the fire of a thousand suns. Actually, on the whole, I really don’t like the way they deal with their female characters at all, which is ridiculous given that most of the writing team is female.

How can you make the two greatest assassins in the universe completely useless and boring?

Fic: Avalanche

Chapter: Forty-eight - Union
Fandom: Captain America films
AU: Peggy Carter as the Winter Soldier
Rating: Same as the films, maybe a tiny bit higher.
Summary: She had no name that she could recall. She did not need a name, anymore than she needed a home or comfort. She only had her assignments.
Notes: WHEE! ACTION SEQUENCE!

Snippet

"You were cautioned," the Operative said mildly. "Your behaviour dictates his well-being."

"This is unnecessary!" she snarled, lunging forward in the grip of the people holding her. Superhuman strength was a useful side-effect of the experiments carried out on her. Another man, then another, and another all piled on to hold her down. Seven against one, all occupied in restraining her. Evening the odds somewhat. "Stop! Leave him alone!"

The Operative looked dispassionately at her. “A point must be made.”

Why aren’t we seeing this everywhere? Soooo much more meaningful than this, which was everywhere:


Those were my EXACT thoughts.

We all know why.
