So, in 2015 I wrote a paper that included a section on literal vs metaphorical cannibalism as it relates to history, knowledge, and academia. I reread it today and now I want to turn that section into an article of some kind. That section is behind the cut below; does anyone out there want to take a gander and tell me if there's anything worth revising into an article?

So let’s say someone felt compelled to write about the time a brave woman goes back in time to work with her younger self to keep a truly terrible person from being elected leader of a country? What would be a good name for the garbage bag wearing a human suit?

So, do baby merfolk suckle at their mother’s breast? If they don’t, why do mermaids have boobs?

Is there anyone who has the time or desire to read 57000 words of a One Direction RPF WIP and then talk it over with me so I can try to finish it?

What are the things you'd most like to see in a someone travels back in time to raise Harry Potter better than the Dursleys fic?

Please and thank you.

So, I've seen the movie twice and it is awesome - but where is all the fic? Dude! It's such a fun film and needs all the fic!

I was ambivalent about Channing Tatum before but he's totally won me over, and Jamie Foxx is badass. And Channing Tatum's daughter is badass. And the tour guide is badass.

I want fic! Where is it?

Also! My Loki's kids megacrossover of doom broke 11,000 words today and everyone is finally about to be reunited.

So, I have a paper to write for my syntax class and I was wondering if any of y'all would be willing to fill out a worksheet for me.

I want to write about the word 'say' and all its variations (like 'shout' and 'mumble' and a lot more), so I'm going to make a worksheet with a shitload of sentences. Something like,

1. "Oh, do be quiet," she said.

2. "Oh, do be quiet," she whispered.

3. "Oh, do be quiet," she shouted.

What I would need from y'all is for y'all to write what each sentence means to you and how it compares to the rest (like, the difference between whispered & shouted, you know?). I wouldn't need your real names, but I do need your age and first language, whether or not it's English.

The paper is due May 8, but I haven't made the worksheet yet. (I just got the idea today, and I'm way more excited for it than any other idea I've had for the this paper.)

So... do this sound like something anyone would be interested for doing for me?

If you could have me move the entirety of my fics in one specific fandom to Ao3, which would it be?

So, I'm working on Merlin's second year at Hogwarts.

If Umbridge dies a month into Harry's fifth year, how is canon changed?

So, first off, I voted for Mike the Tiger - I'm so glad he won!

Second off, which of my fics do you wish I would upload to Ao3?
tigriswolf: (animal)
So, is there anyone who has read the serial killer Klaine AU and is willing to discuss it with me? I need to talk to someone about it and no one in my RL is interested. (They're actually kinda creeped out by it. *shrugs*)

Alright, these guys are Mr. Badass Waistcoat, The Most Dangerous Animal In Africa, and Bacon.  Can y'all guess who's who?
tigriswolf: (supercroc)
So, I wrote this fic, right? Where Merlin the most powerful sorcerer/magician/wizard ever was reincarnated and attending Hogwarts. His first year is Harry Potter’s fourth.

And my kid!Merlin accidently released every dragon in the world from the chains the magical communities had placed on them, and all the dragons went to The Isle, a place only dragons and the sorcerer who made it can find. (And, yeah, the dude who made it? Was Merlin.)

So, that means that everything in Harry Potter canon goes AU a few days before the First Task of the Triwizard Tournament, right? The thing is, all I can remember involving dragons is when the Trio rode a dragon out of Gringrotts.

I don’t suppose anyone out there can imagine a couple other ramifications? I’m pretty sure people would be talking about the dragons going missing, right?

Because, yes, more and more bits of Second Year keep sauntering into my brain.

Why is that no fics I've read have ever mentioned that the Warriors 3 + Sif committed treason? And Heimdallr?

Fact: Odin (the king, even if he is a douchebag, and a dude all of the aforementioned jerkasses are supposedly loyal to) banished Thor for being a war-mongering, easily-angered, going-to-get-everyone-killed idiot. Yes? King banishes prince, takes his magic (mostly), and tosses him down to Earth to prove himself.

Fact: Odin then falls into the most helpfully timed healing sleep ever and for some reason his wife doesn't take over for a few days. Okay.

Fact: Odin has a second son and he takes over. Makes sense because there’s an heir and a spare, right? Heir’s out of town so spare steps up.

Fact: So now we have an Acting King, who, while he may not want to be king, he is not, at least, easily angered. Like, he didn't actually want to go to Jotunheimr, and he almost got them out of there without fighting - except, oh, right. Thor decided to start a war. Which he got banished for.

Fact: Warriors 3 + Sif don't like Loki. For some reason, neither does Heimdallr. So what do they do? They decide to ignore not only Loki's commandments, but also Odin's - that dude they all claim to be loyal to. You know why the Destroyer showed up in New Mexico? Because the king had traitors he needed to deal with, and they happened to be on a planet that didn't have a treaty with Asgard. And if all the humans would’ve stayed out of the way, a few buildings might have gotten singed, but we’re a hardy people. We can deal with that.

So. No fic I've seen has mentioned the treachery, and how that might have added to everything else Loki was dealing with. Why? Because he’s “the villain”? He was following the king’s rules and keeping the banished guy banished because – as evidenced by Thor on Jotunheimr, he wasn’t ready to be king.

Yes, Loki’s my favorite. Yes, I mentioned the above in one of my fics, and a prompt I left in the kinkmeme. But I can’t recall any other fic about it.

It just makes me mad. *sigh*

Have commas, periods, and hyphens always been counted in the word-counting software? Because that throws off pretty much everything I've ever written.

So, along with everything else I'm working on and failing to finish, I started something new today. An Avengers/Norse myth crossover where Rhodey (Tony's best friend) is Sleipnir, Happy (Tony Stark's bodyguard) is Fenrir, Tony himself is Jörmungandr, Pepper is Hela, and either Bryce Larkin or Eames is Vali, and Neal Caffrey is Nari (I'm waiting to hear back from the prompter for those last two).

Now. My questions are these:

Should I just find two Marvel canon characters to be Vali&Nari? Because it's already intricate enough and I don't want to worry about other canons, too?

What color is Fenrir's fur? I think I want him to be a black wolf.

Should Hela be the goddess of the dead, or should I just ignore that part? Maybe she's turned her back on everything but her family.

Also, I think I've decided that Loki is mother of them all, instead of just Sleipnir.

And I'm either changing or ignoring certain parts of the Iron Man movies, so that it fits into the whole 'some of the characters are mythological figures' thing better. Should I mention within the narrative itself whenever that happens (somehow) or just assume the reader is clever enough to figure that out?
