dark merrywetherweather show me the forbidden davekat fic recs
oh boy. i knew this day would come and now i regret not putting together a rec list and being unprepared. i tend not to keep track of everything i read (because i will read pretty much everything and i end up forgetting stuff) but i do have a few faves that i can list and hopefully you haven’t read these before.
I’ve also written a bunch of davekat fics but since you’re asking me for recs I’m assuming you’ve pretty much read through them so I’ll skip the shameless self-advertising. *+*+*\(o v o)/+*+*+ Hope you see some you haven’t read already.
I think Whedon tried to model it after Firefly, but forgot that in that ‘verse, the hero wasn’t the government operative with carte blanche to do whatever it takes to achieve the mission.
I honestly think SHIELD just doesn’t work as a TV show. James Bond can do the superspy thing and ignore individual rights or collateral damage because they have a massive threat that’s been building all movie long. The villain gets to have screen time because he’s got top billing right along Daniel Craig. The TV show gets 45 minutes, of which 30 has to be devoted to the team interactions, because they’re the main characters. So instead of a credible danger we get penny-ante threats that shouldn’t even be a difficulty for a small town police force, and it’s just stupid.
Now we prepare to produce even schmoopier gamkar than you. We prepare… to out-schmoop. (I’m unclear on who the gauntlet was thrown at, but I can’t let that thing just lie there, someone might trip or something)
A CHALLENGE FROM A WORTHY OPPONENT. >:D
(I threw it in the general direction of the ever-more-frantic scratching I hear at my askbox. My, my, I wonder who it could be??)
‘thrown down a gauntlet’ is how i feel every time i post something that sheds gamzee in a more sympathetic or hopeful light that is ALLOWED atm in fandom haha. nobody’s been rude to me yet though.
It’s PATHETIC that it’s come to this! I haven’t felt this wary and watchful online since someone tried to make me out myself (in a completely different online space a few years ago) – and feeling like this, over a character? That I REALLY don’t think I or anyone I personally know is being unreasonable about? Fuck that shit.
