misogyny on supernatural? )

in other news, as part of my epic failure to resist writing comics fanfic, i've spent most of my time at the Robb & Stucky website, furnishing the AU Luthor estate in hawaii. gnnnngh. WANT.

annnd over at [livejournal.com profile] misspamela's, she is hosting the fandom hot 20! go pick your top three hottest fictional characters of all time (omg that is hard) and list them in a comment. pam'll make a poll when all's said and done. get crazy!
i know nothing about the next episode of supernatural except the title. i don't know anything about the plot, so i don't know how much - if at all, given the show's past history of grabbing names from songs out of the clear blue sky - this song might apply. but i worry that people will not have the song to hand, if they want to find out, and so here you go:

[ long distance call - muddy waters ]

and with regard to SPN 3x13: Ghostfacers... )
i'm just gonna state right here, outside the cut tag, that this episode was not to my taste. if you have squee that oughtn't be harshed, it would be best to skip this entry.

Hi, everybody!!

That poll I put up - over 50 volunteers. You guys are incredible. (I almost used a cuss word right there, but saved it just in time.) I am totally over the moon. The best part is the name. Y'all ready?

The No Stairway Anthology - [livejournal.com profile] nostairway

I love the name. I ain't even gonna front. :)

The first post in that community is our guidelines and overview, so please give those a read if you're interested. As I said before, things have changed a lot since we started talking. Even now they're pretty rough draft - it's only been two days - but we've got a pretty good idea of how things are going to go. If you have any questions, [livejournal.com profile] maygra and I have open posts. (Hers is here.)

As a side note, I'm aware that there are folks who maybe aren't the biggest fans of this idea, and that's a shame. But hopefully the guidelines will clear things up for them, because I'm definitely seeing a lot of misconceptions on those posts. In fact, why don't I go ahead and touch on some of the highlights?

As I see it, the benefits are twofold; for readers and for writers.

Each issue of the Anthology will hold a number of stories that have been screened for basic typos and grammar, and then passed by at least three editors. Those editors look for originality, innovation, use of language and pacing, anything that'd make a story grip a reader's attention. They look for stories that challenge and move us, stories that twist us up; their goal is to fill the Anthology, not pare it down. We'd like to showcase as many stories as possible. Each story is archived at a website - those of you who boycott LJ can still play - and a reader's guaranteed to be able to browse these stories whenever they want, in a format that's readable and clear. The editorial oversight board and administrators make sure that each issue has a range of stories, something to appeal to any taste.

And for the writers, first and foremost is that each story is assessed purely on its merits - all identifying information is stripped away before the editors even see it. Doesn't matter what your name is, you've got the same shot as anybody else. If your story is published to the Anthology, that'll mean exposure for not just your single story but all your works, because there's a link to your LJ or your IJ or your website, whatever you want.

The last benefit for writers is something we sort of snuck under the radar. Every single author who sends in a story has the option of recieving comments from the editors. Doesn't matter if you get published or not. Three objective editors will tell you what they think is good about what you wrote, and where you might be able to improve. It's not a line edit or a beta process - we have day jobs to think of! - but it's a quick summary that we hope will be helpful. You don't have to take it, of course, but I sure plan to. People with editing guidelines are going to look at my stuff and give me their honest opinion. I know nobody's going to tell me what I want to hear, and I also know nobody's going to be mean or catty about it. Dude. Awesome.

So that's us! Have a look over those preliminary guidelines, ask any questions you want. When things are finalized and ready to go, we'll have a big going-live party and you're all invited.
it's called "let's pretend".

some spoilers for s3, but gosh he's so cute. jensen at comiccon. <3

there's interviews with ben edlund and kripke on that site, too, but they're not mister adorableface, here. :D
winterlive: (rps: atlanta morning coming down)
this spoilery interview with eric kripke about the upcoming season is so full of excellence that i can hardly even contain myself.

and in other slightly-spoilery news, three fen popped by the set as the lads were filming the premiere, and they were SO polite and nice and well-behaved that they got to have some nice friendly chit-chat with both boys and two other cast members who popped by to say hi. their reports are here, here, here and here.

my show is full of awesome.

[ this post ] says it very well.

as does, i hope, [ this one ].

so i really didn't feel the need to write another about this season three spoiler that has been around for months and months and which you've almost assuredly heard of ) when it'd just be the same song, but then something occurred to me.

don't click if you have magically managed to stay spoiler-free. )
