I took a random sampling of some of my stories to see if I'd get different authors. The following authors must be overly fond of adjectives, and perhaps fans of the semicolon and the dash.

No One Noticed the Cat is like Agatha Christie. (Hee. Mystery!)

Snow Bunnies Melt and Toy Soldiers Break (1 + 2) is like Dan Brown.

Momento Mori and Forget Me Not are like Stephen King. (Chloe-centric is Stephen King mode? Hmm. However, despite Stephen King’s bestseller nature, there are very, very few comments on these. I don’t know if that’s style or content related.)

SupesFans vs LexMinions is like Chuck Palahniuk as is You Make Me Sick
(This is interesting as I’ve never read him, but these two stories are both quite popular, so maybe it’s a style I should cultivate. Their content is wildly different.)


I write like
Chuck Palahniuk

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

SHE’S AWESOME MEME

Fandom, it has often been noted, doesn’t appreciate women enough. Women characters, women writers, actresses, directors... In many cases, it feels like you can wander around fandom and only hear about women through the endless barrage of complaints against uppity female characters and the comments about each other’s bodies.

Rather than belaboring the point or trying to blame another faction of fandom as being ‘worse’ than one’s own-- Show your pride. Show your love. Show us the women you love and the women who have changed your life. Who spins your world right round, baby? Whose writing has changed your life?

The point isn’t to show how much better you are than others, or to make other fans feel bad. There are sharp fans doing good meta that will lead us onto wiser paths. The point of this meme is to spread positivity towards women in fandom, to squee with other fans over your favorite characters, actresses, authors, and musicians, and to look at other people’s lists for new sources of enjoyment.

Answer the following to the best of your memory, with as much detail as you want to, including women from every walk of life that you can think of. If you need to add another category, do so. And yes, transfolk count.

You're the _______ to my _______.



In other news, yesterday I walked for an hour while listening to the Fatcast. Exercising while listening to podcasts about size acceptance feels both appropriate (on a literal level) and subversive (to the dominate image of what fatties do). I'm also going out today to see if I can't find a Hello Kitty notepad to write my medical symptoms in, so that I have them all down when I go for my next doctor's appointment.
