A space AU Klance piece Bella made for me, because of course I can always count on her to shatter my smol heart with angst 8′) Except that I FIRMLY BELIEVE THEY BOTH WILL MAKE IT AND ALL ENDS WELL!! *sobs* Right…? Lance won’t let Keith go no matter what… Even if they’d go down together
I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of Shepard when not in active duty. Letting her hair down figuratively and/or literally, speaking more softly, laughing more freely, tinkering with her weapons like the nerd she is, working out, reading a book, that kind of thing :)
Rambling thoughts about omgcp, the South, being really fucking gay.
I just finished reading @lollard’s yuletide 2014 omgcp fic (idk if she would want me to link to it, so I’m gonna refrain but if you are interested send me a message). It’s short, mostly a character study of Bitty. Probably the length of this essay/diatribe I’m about to write will be greater than the story that inspired it–but nevertheless I’m not surprised that in not so many words, lollard managed to push so many buttons I have related to the South, growing up gay, rural and urban Southern identities, et c. et c. omgcp is very broad brushstrokes about a lot of the Southernness of Bitty–it’s the outline of a story, dropped hints and coded jokes and occasionally stereotypical jabs–and lollard does an amazing job of pencilling in the fine detail. She builds out a concrete world of universal emotion (how much like myself can I be and still live up to the unspoken expectations of parents?) through the chiaroscuro of Southern culture. It’s quite good.
I have my own thoughts about the Southernness of Bitty, and in particular the comic’s courting of the idea of Southern homophobia, and homophobia in general. (under the cut)
