recrudescence: (Default)

Welcome, anyone who's added me or who I've added since Con.txt kicked off. If you aren't quite sure you remember who I am, my next post will be a con write-up and that will include a decent-sized dose of picspam.

For the new and unsuspecting, my name is Yvi and I like capslock and ruffly skirts and sometimes I write kinky porn just to see if I can do it. My current fandom is Inception first and foremost, but I've gotten pretty into Teen Wolf, Avengers, and Spartacus, and enjoy but am behind on Grimm. I will also flail over several other fandoms peripherally.

I'm recrudescence on both LJ and DW, yviwashere on Twitter, and thisrecrudescence on Tumblr. Most of my stuff is on the AO3, but I also tag and bookmark it all on LJ/DW.

My next fic will probably be about Thor and Steve trying to figure out what a frappuccino is.

(Note: I'm adding people on both LJ and DW simply because I crosspost from DW but check my flist on LJ more regularly, as I'm keeping up with more people there.)

This is the short story. There's a longer version, but it's maudlin and boring and full of peculiar bits of dried fruit, so consider yourselves spared.

So, hello!

I didn't mean to make anyone worry. Sometimes I'll have moments of "dear sweet mother of Moses, my fandom life is a compendium of mediocrities!" but then I get over myself and remember how much fandom has helped me grow and become more comfortable with who I am and how I interact. In general, fandom has been really awesome to me. It just makes me flounder when I don't think I can be awesome back.

However, I'm doing better and I want to specify that if I ever plan on deleting everything full stop--LJ and AO3, the whole kit and caboodle, which I don't have any intention of doing--I will always give some kind of notice first.

Here, have something that made me smile.

Now someone write fic to go with it, mkay?

(How weird is it seeing bb!JGL's sharp little shoulders and knowing he's running around looking all beefed up nowadays? Pulling a Hardy, are we?)

(Oh, I also saw Avengers. And basically what I need now is tons of fanworks where Thor and/or Loki crossdress. I CANNOT CALL IT FACT, BUT IT'S MYTHOLOGICAL CANON, OKAY.)

This post has been brought to you by my Tumblr dash.

I wish more celebrities were open about sexual experimentation. Screwing around with someone of the same sex doesn't mean you're abnormal in any way, but it doesn't mean you have to be some kind of gay icon either. I have some beef with Jessie J, but I like that she's been upfront about her bisexuality without defining herself based on it. THard actually seemed to have that mentality down cold, going by the things he said in his older interviews.

When I read the famous "I’ve played with anything and anyone" article, I thought it was very refreshing how he owned up to having experimented in the past. But then he gets very specific in a much more recent interview, mentioning "I’ve never had a cock in my arse, and I have no fucking desire for it" and while it's still awesome that he's game for chatting about it, reading that had me not sure how to feel at first.

On one hand, it reads as if he's backpedaling somewhat and it makes me think. Maybe it's because he's becoming more widely known to American audiences and has to uphold his manly street cred, since Lord knows Americans have plenty of thoughts on just how sexuality should be marketed in order to pass muster and, unfortunately, talking about whether or not you've ever been fucked up the ass isn't something generally associated with good PR even if you're not a big burly dude with way too many shoulder muscles. But I like to believe he'll swagger on being his eccentric self anyway.

On the other hand, it has to be annoying constantly being bombarded with interrogations about things he's blurted out in the past and it's not a surprise if the strain gets to him now and again. Credit where it's due, he doesn't shy away from intensely personal questions. No one is obligated to divulge information about who they're attracted to, since it's really no one else's damn business, and he's been an incredible sport about putting all his past indiscretions out in the open. I hope the fact that he's turning into a household name doesn't mean he starts developing a brain to mouth filter all of a sudden--or that he's being told to tone down the rambling as he becomes more successful, which is sadly more likely than not. "It’s a very different system now, and I’m getting fast-tracked, and learning how it works," says quite a bit.

I do wish he'd just said what he said before--that he messed around, has no problem with it, but it's not something he's interested in at this point in his life. He's a phenomenal actor, lack of brain-to-mouth filter and all, and it shouldn't matter whether or not any man-on-man action he did is firmly in the past. At least we don't need to worry about ersatz journalists pulling an Ellen Page and deciding to expose his checkered past for the greater good, since he's been keen on doing all that on his own.

In conclusion, I'm a little put out that sexual orientation is always expected to be so black and white and that Hollywood isn't helping at all. He's said himself, "I have to make my bones with Hollywood to get in," but I hope he still manages to roll with the punches and keeps on wearing pink shirts and babbling about chicken villages and rhapsodizing about his shoe fetish and rapping while holding babies.

This is appalling.

Three-year-olds are not easy to deal with.

Special education is not a field for the weak.

Neither of these things mean it is anywhere near appropriate to drag, kick, hit, or scream at the children that you, as an educator, are meant to be protecting, supporting, and assisting. The fact that this student is being castigated for reporting abuse, and that her report is being dismissed because she herself is on the autism spectrum, has me sitting here stunned. No wonder special ed is such a high-need area.

And this is happening in Baltimore, through Towson University, a place that should be dedicated to producing the most qualified teachers they can instead of stepping on people trying to do the right thing.
