So I've got...four in progress series to finish

1)present day continuation of girl!Steve/616 Bucky D/s World Au
2) continuation of the fem!Bucky verse (look, I didn't say I'd never do another one, just that I wasn't doing any more set during the war)
3) The end of The Beach House (which is for some reason giving me trouble)
4) A little more Walk Through Hell

And I'd like to write the "Bucky crashes his motorcycle"fic. But at the rate I'm going, that might have to wait until after November. It depends on my mmmoood.

RIght now though, I would like to go back to bed.

I only recently went looking for fic, and I don't really hang out with people in the fandom so I don't think I could say I'm part of it but...

The Reign fandom is so weird to me. I don't think I've ever been in an online fandom where )

When it starts up again in September, I'm going to start attending my local public writer's group. Things have happened lately that caused me to realize how important (possibly vital and urgent) it is for me to start having more of an adult, professional attitude. The timing and dates of the group and the fact that it's free of charge leave me no excuse

And also widen my social circle and make age appropriate friends (or at least pleasant acquaintances) off the internet and outside of fandom.

I did my first product pitch the other day. And while I am totally willing to incorporate their feedback (they didn't say no, they had Notes) there's no promise that if accepted by the shop, it will change my financial future.

So I'm doing these. Um, not every episode of the entire series, because it ran for 10 years, usually with a full season's order of 22-30 episodes. Many of those episodes are NOT worth talking about and get increasingly less interesting to me. Nor do people have to comment, I'm just trying to keep my brain moving on days when I should be writing better things but don't feel like it.

I've also been taking screenshots of some of their more insane outfits.

Anyhoozle.

And also, now I have to figure out what Est!Seb's reaction is going to be to #GiveCapaBoyfriend, don't I?

Yeah, I was definitely wrong. There's only a few fics for the original 90210 on Ao3 and while many pairings are represented, there's no one dominant pairing at all (and very little slash). Huh. I must have seen the fics I was talking about on some other site, like FF.net?

And like a lot of sort of dead fandoms, there aren't really any of my favorite thing- crazy AUs.
babydraco: (Default)
Binge rewatching 90210 for some reason. I'm good at finding ways not to write (I wanted to update my fics before Civil War but so far, that's not happening, I'm trying to make some money for my trip to see the movie and there's been a general "get in shape" initiative going on too, by the time I'm ready to write I'm tired).

I was a fan of the 2010s sequel series too (although I was unable to finish the last couple of seasons), which makes viewing the 90s ones...interesting. Like when Kelly turned down going to Paris with Donna so she could stay home all summer with Baby Erin? She should've gone to Paris, because she's going to end up raising that kid herself when her mom experiences a reversal of character development later, Kelly is destined to be trapped in that family caretaker role, but most people only get to go to Paris once. Maybe she's not bothered by that though, she's always been in the Mom role.

Most of the fics on Ao3 are Dylan/Brandon slash. Heavy sigh. Look, I mean, I get it. Two guys who were legendarily hot in their prime, playing best friends who stare soulfully at each other on the beach as a saxophone softly croons in the background and in the early seasons, Dylan was dating Brandon's twin sister. And it's not like they had a lot of other options for queer characters, no one in the main cast and no one who recurred for more than one episode (at that time, acknowledging the possibility at all was shocking for a teen show, this, and the way they were honest about the fact that teenagers have casual sex, drink, and sometimes do drugs and the world doesn't end because of it is what got them labeled shockingly racy despite coming off as almost wholesomely quaint by 21st century viewer standards). And I wish there was a solid femslash pairing but I'm not seeing it except for the occasional taken-out-of-context moment. The other actresses deserve awards for their heroic efforts to convince us they could stand Brenda (someone tried to mean girl Jennie Garth on another project and she said "you can't scare me, I worked with Shannen Doherty").

It's just so predictable. Yet another fandom boils everything down to shipping, which I get this time because shipping *was* such a big part of it, and I realize it wasn't always the deepest show on tv but...really? That's literally the only thing you can think of to write about?

i could do so many cool things with this scent. In theory. I'll try some stuff out on myself first.

Bucky Barnes Daddy Kink AUS

Wolverine- Driver/Hitchhiker AU

Sam- Sudden Acquisition of Someone Else's Surly Teenager/Surly Teenage Brat AU (for example, Sam is housesitting at his friend's vacation home and his friend's kid/little brother has run away from boarding school or secretly quit college and show up unexpectedly thinking the place would be empty).

Phil Coulson - amateur pornstar roleplaying

Namor- Unpleasable Boss/Frustrated Intern AU

Nick Fury- Cop/Criminal Informant AU (or Seasoned Cop/Rookie or Cop/Hooker)

Peggy Carter- Oh, I don't know but just about anything would be cool including any of the scenarios above

Yeah, I can write all that but I'm totally uninspired to make a post for Sebastian in the RPG

So I actually really love sub!Bucky fics in basically any pairing. And I love genderswap/Rule 63. I found this pretty hot fic featuring Fem!Bucky playing a submissive role to Steve. It's an obscure fic and it doesn't have a lot of hits or comments.

But I felt it was a whole new untapped well of plotbunnies and I wanted to try it. I wasn't in the habit of writing femsub fics and I was wary of reading them...It's not a kink I'm into enough that I'll read any pairing. I really need to believe it's in character, and for the scenario to not be treated as like, some sort of default by the author. They're doing it because it's them, not because they're a man and a woman.

Which is why I don't feel like it's at all weird to want to see this with Steve and Bucky if I enjoy reading and writing that when they're both men. They're the same people.

So I asked myself, "What would you need to see?"

And then I took care to make sure I put those things into the story I wrote.Hopefully those things are all clear in my writing.

Like the following )

"If Bucky (or Steve) was a woman, Stucky would be canon".

Yup. I mean, *probably* an actual sexual relationship would still only happen in movie verse because 616 comics verse would still have the age difference issue (in comics fandom, people would be like "what? the love interest is a teenage Mary Sue in booty shorts? And then she gets fridged?). But the number of Stony shippers would quadruple while fans desperately searched for ways to make Stucky not a thing. They'd claim (especially fans who were only familiar with MCU) that Bucky's role in the story was upgraded into a forced canon relationship in order to make Steve look straight and divert attention from the loving glances he's always giving Tony (or Sam but more likely Tony).

They'd say, with bitter sighs, "why can't men and women just be friends sometimes?" or "of course the main male character and the first woman we're introduced to in his life are going to be an endgame couple. Of course." There'd also be a lot of complaining about Bucky existing to further Steve's manpain and/or always needing to be rescued and/or essentially being an object for everyone else to fight over. And the loss of agency and metaphorical rape?

No one would read Stucky because "ewww het". Sub!Bucky, Omega!Bucky and Stay At Home Spouse/Parent! Bucky would be rejected as "a tired rehash of sexist stereotypes" and...all those fics in which Steve acts scary and controlling and like Bucky owes him a relationship and/or is his property would be quite unpopular. People would be even more livid if Steve was the woman and people were writing sub!Steve or those fics where Bucky acts like Steve can't tie his own shoes without help. ETA or using feminizing nicknames like "babydoll".

If people could have what they wanted but one of the characters had to be female in order for it to happen, they wouldn't want it anymore. What they want is a canon queer relationship and I want that too but...there's a blatant double standard when it comes to how people view relationships when their slash goggles are on.

(on the other hand, the amount of BuckyNat shippers would skyrocket. But only if Natasha was also female, otherwise it'd be "demoting a strong female character to the role of love interest" because she showed emotional vulnerability and sexual attachment to a man).

Sebastian's taking creative writing classes. This is something I could use, I think. Since his only public social media account is Instagram, it didn't seem like he was into making long, introspective posts but...I could use the writing class as a way to come up with longer, more interesting posts for him.

There's a Margarita hate blog.

ore thoughts on this later, when I'm in less physical pain.

Oh. Finally figured out why Natural Law didn't grab me as much as I'd hoped.

Most of it's from the man's pov. I know this sounds weird, because I'm currently writing a male sub (and I write it a lot, let's be honest) but it's a femdom novel which doesn't spend much time in the woman's head. And I know that part of the problem was that her backstory was supposed to be a surprise, and all the Dommes at the club were suspects until her backstory eliminated her and therefore we couldn't spend too much time in her head. But that still leaves you with a femdom story in which all the women are unreadable mysteries and the story isn't about them, it's about the man.

This came up because of this article and my slight irritation when anyone assumes what personal angle I'm approaching writing a story from
