  • Red Dwarf | Rimmer/Lister, Cat | G | Dressy
    Rimmer thinks Lister needs something new to spice things up in the bunkroom, and a little cross-dressing could be just the thing. Pure ridiculous fluff without anything other than dialogue.

  • Madoka Magica | Madoka, ensemble | T | An Anticlimactic Ascension
    Madoka has worked up the resolve to go and make her wish and help Homura. Unfortunately no responsible parent would ever let their child wander unsupervised into a hurricane, so the whole things ends up a bit anticlimactic.

  • Red Dwarf | Rimmer/Lister, Kryten, Cat/Cat | T | Holly Hop Scotch
    Of all the possible universes to hop into, the last scenario they expected was a Red Dwarf teeming with life, resulting from a very much alive Arnold Rimmer and one Deb Lister.
    series:red dwarf,fic:one-shot,pairing:rimmer_lister,trope:genderplay,trope:kidfic

  • Madoka Magica | Homura, ensemble | G | the perfect timeline
    Everything was perfect now- no matter how many times Homura woke up she never did so in a hospital room, no matter how valiantly she searched for white cats with smug empty smiles she never saw any. Her friends- and they were really her friends- lived with her- they even seemed to like her. Maybe even love her? Maybe. She didn’t want to count her soul gems before they hatched.

Danger & Eggs review: It’s really good, but mostly not for the reasons it gets hyped for. August 10, 2018

So I finally had a chance to watch Danger & Eggs, the Amazon Prime animated kids’ show. Only one season so far, 13 episodes, most of them consisting of two distinct 12-minute segments.

It’s a lot of cute fun.

You know how Phineas and Ferb is partly about mundane suburban family stuff, but the kids’ adventures keep pushing the bounds of fantasy and sci-fi, and meanwhile there’s a world of secret-agent animals fighting mad scientists that they keep intersecting with?

That’s the energy Danger & Eggs has. It centers around a city park where people walk their dogs, rent the clamshell for concerts, hold ren faires…and don’t bat an eye at the underground full of leftover experiments from a failed mad-science organization.

Our heroes are D.D. Danger, human girl whose father was a famous stuntman, and Phil, giant talking egg whose mother is a house-sized mutant chicken. D.D. is wild, energetic, and adventurous; Phil is nervous, quiet, and safety-conscious. They are Best Friends. The comedy writes itself.

And it’s never mean comedy, either. They appreciate each other’s differences! There’s an episode where they wander into a labyrinth controlled by a slightly-deranged AI, get separated, and the AI creates an “ideal” simulation of each of them to entice the other into staying forever. But its strategy backfires — holo!D.D. is quiet and listless, holo!Phil is reckless and hyperactive, and the real kids discover that this isn’t appealing at all, that their friendship works because of how they balance each other out.

So that’s the good part.

The bad part is, before I started watching, all I knew about the show was “it’s full of LGBTQ characters! It has such good gay and trans representation! The whole last episode takes place at a Pride parade!”

Which meant I got pretty let down as the stuff I was expecting…didn’t happen.

Erin Listens: The Gateway July 11, 2018

Just finished listening to The Gateway: a 6-part podcast series about “Teal Swan, a new brand of spiritual guru, who draws in followers with her hypnotic self-help YouTube videos aimed at people who are struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts.”

(So if you don’t want to read a long post about those things, you should bail out here.)

I’d never heard of Teal before this, and I still don’t know anything about her beyond what’s in this report. But I do know a few things about psychiatry that aren’t in the series.

And based on that…I have complaints.

I’ve had Grace Petrie’s “They Shall Not Pass” in pretty heavy rotation for a few days now, and wanted to share.

Stand up today that we might save tomorrow
Oh I know there’s a way that we might save tomorrow
Yes it’s late in the day but we might save tomorrow if we try

We shall not turn against each other, for our creed or for our colour
Nor the ones we choose our lovers, or our class
You that beckon us that way, you shall not pass
