For my information )
I'm always open to suggestions, prompts, etc.

Kun Lun (What if in 1421, Chinese really discovered the continent we now call America and stay?)
Principle One: A behaviour is caused by desire.
Once upon a time, I read 1421: The Year China Discovered the World. It's not highly regarded by historians, but it makes me think: what if Chinese really discover America and build a relationship with Native Americans before The European arrival? I realize that a lot of things'll change.

Principle Two: Almost all behaviours are motivated by many desires.
I know I would like a what-if that Native American thrive even after European arrival, but does it also stem from wanting a what-if that the early Chinese immigrant history in America can be less bloody? Do I also want to see how a steampunk society can be developed by Chinese and Native Americans? Can it be a response to the Mammoth Fail? Is it because I read that someone is writing a book about steampunk in the Muslim Golden Age? This list can go on.

Principle three: there are three kind of wishes, ego wish, id wish, superego wish. (I will add homogeneous wish from Argyle here).
After a very long discussion and brainstorming with my friend, we come up with the following:
What if Chinese encounter Inca and Maya Empire? It will really shatter Chinese view of being the centre of the world, and printing press may be adopted by the South American Empire government there. After all, book publication in China is sponsored by governments initially.
There'll be different kinds of level of settlement across North America. The West Coast will be more developed, for example.
Local Chinese immigration and built up of settlement will occur, and the gradual contact may give Native Americans the immunity against small pox, fire powders and horses.
There'll be mixed children of Chinese and Native American people, which forms their specific culture.
The technology developed by Native Americans and Chinese together will be so different that we may call it steampunk. I think I read an article about alternative technology Native American may develop but now I can't find it again. Resistance? ETA: I find the link now. Apparently bringing subconscious conflict to the surface helps make an informed choice.

Principle four: For every subsystem, there will be a complement sub-system working in opposite to it.
I think when Europeans arrive, they will find a continent they never expect. Maybe there'll be scattered European settlements across the continents, but there won't be the USA as we know now.
I call this land Kun Lun for now, which is the name of a far East mountain in Chinese mythology.
If I ever write a fic set in it, there'll be a Chinese female character who's the daughter of a female Chinese pirate and goes East to learn science. (Marvel comics fan may recognize her mother as the only female Iron Fist.) She'll probably be my POV character at least at first, because I'm more familiar to Ming Dynasty China. I wonder what kind of friends she'll meet, what sort of adventure she'll get into.

With Marvel universe's loads and loads of characters, there're a lot of slashable women. However, it 's difficult to navigate between several decades of convoluted canon so I'm writing this as an introduction. Because of sheer amount of canon, I'm not trying to be extensive and restrict myself to pairings I like in the main comics universe, aka Earth 616. (note: images heavy)

5 –If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?
It happens to me when I'm writing my fantasy AU aka scifibigbang first draft, where Wolverine and Bruce take over the plot and I let them. I give them a chance to shine, but I give up at last. Lesson: Letting characters taking over plot, especially those you're not partial to is bad.

6 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters? No preference.

7 – Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character? No, unfortunately. I usually have a set idea when I'm writing them.

8 – Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not black hole, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs. Of course I write OC. How come I don't use them when I am writing stories that the characters exist in a world? I even write a story that an OC is the protagonist. My rule is just that every named characters gets to be awesome or contributes to the story.


'Til the World Ends is Charles/Erik and Britney and absolutely wonderful.

So I'm slowly progressing on the Marvel femslash pairing primer. It's very depressing when usually one or both of them are currently dead and a messy break-up with no reason at all is a better ending. I am also waiting for scan daily to accept my membership request to ask about Jean/Emma, Destiny/Mystique scan because I can't/don't want to slough through all the 80's X-Men comics.

There's reported disability fail, Holocaust fail, LGBTQ fail on the X-Men first class kink meme. The cynical part in me is not surprised but I'm still sad about it. Also from hearsay that the mod may not be acting against it. This meta is sadly very relevant.

[personal profile] thingswithwings has made an awesomely critical vid on MANPAIN. (And if you're going "... er, a vid on what?", she also has an explanation/commentary post which is well worth reading! There is also the indispensable Manpain Flowchart. Not to mention Fanlore: Manpain. in the comment. Another post on Manpain.

More serious meta: [personal profile] marina: I want to talk about the white dude from the US who made a film about the lives of Palestinians in Israel where everyone speaks English. Where most of the principal actors can't even speak Arabic. Where language, as a political, ethnic and social marker simply doesn't exist. Erased, along with other things, as if what language is spoken, for example, in an Israeli courtroom, is of no importance.

I'm joining [community profile] ladiesbigbang, which should be of no surprise. I'm currently thinking of writing a primer "So you want to ship Marvel women." It will include a brief introduction of the characters, why to ship them, and where to fnd them now. Currently thinking to include are Misty/Colleen, Carol/Jessica Drew, Carol/Jessica Jones, Carol/Wanda, Mystique/Destiny, Xavin/Karolina, Natasha/Bobbi, Jean/Wanda, Jan/Storm, Storm/Yukio. But I'll look for help, especially in the X-Men area, which I have not much knowledge of. I'll appreciate any idea and suggestions.

Differently-abled comics

1) I'm joining [community profile] ladiesbigbang because it allows multicategory submission, the word limit for fic is low (10K) My ideas are:

Marvel Adventures/Robin Hood with Storm as Robin Hood/Zorro figure. I have 6K of it though it probably needs to be completely rewritten

A resources list/primer to introduce my favourite Marvel comics female characters

A Supernatural-que AU with Misty and Colleen kicking ass and killing monsters

Once upon a time, I see an article discussing that it will be great with a law-and-order like miniseries about Misty as detective, Colleen as psychologist, Angel del Toro as PI, Black Cat as bounty hunter, She-Hulk as DA and Night Nurse as ME. Because I'm foolish, I can't find the link any more. With a bit adjustment, I would like this to happen. ETA: I find it now: Law and Order: MU

2) Getting tired of waiting for Marvel's endless events to end, I decide to branch out to read more comics with woman kicking ass.
So far I try:
Girl Genius: The subject of Girl Genius (gaslight fantasy, mad scientists) caters to me, but I need sometime to adapt to the art (Sorry to Girl genius readers)
White Out: I quickly loves the protagonist Carrie, and there's a mystery! Very promising.
Queen & Country: I love realistic spy fiction. I have only read 2 issues bu it looks good now.
Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword: Fiddlers on the Roof meets Harry Potter with a 12-year-old Orthodox Jewish girl determined to kill trolls. Charming.
I'm looking forward to I kill Giants

Look at pretty!

I succeed in making my first line of bingo in [community profile] kink_bingo here!.

Actually, I avoid the argument about whether to install achievement about unrepresented characters on kink_bingo by sheer luck or being clueless before I claim the achievement asexual character bingo. Now I feel like a coward but......

Well I don't think writing unrepresented characters deserve a cookie anyway. But I see the achievement as a way of increasing visibility so I can easily find more fic of the underrepresented characters by clicking on the tags. And.... sometimes it's nice to have a badge for something you're doing any way. I know I will write asexual characters for the card. But a kick is sometimes I need for motivation to finish a line.

Anyway, I hope more good fic come out of it.

 I find that I'm in a continuing trend to write Belle/Esmeralda. Well, they deserve much better than what the canon gives them and I like opposite attract pairing. The lack of canon means that I have more freedom to write. And it shows.

Character/Pairing: Belle/Esmeralda
Summary: Another chapter of Belle and her companions' expedition to a lost ancient city, and Belle discovers something more too.
Warning: none
Note: It's a steampunk airship AU with asexual!Belle/Esmeralda. I try to remedy the lack in both AU and asexual characters in femslash.

Title: Brat
Fandom: Disney
Rating: General audience
Character/Pairing: Belle/Esmeralda
Summary: Esmeralda gives Belle a good spanking.
Warning: none
Note: It has spanking and is still g-rating.
