PROMPT 2 Making a poster

Hi there! A big thank you to all those who responded to Prompt One, there was a great variety of memorable books and I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of Enid Blyton memories. Reading The Faraway Tree to my then two-year-old daughter is one of the great moments I will ever experience.

This week we want a reflection and a creation. Firstly, reflect on when you last had a chance to make a classroom display, was this when you were still in school, or on placement, or hopefully not, never. 

Secondly, make a poster suitable for a classroom. This can be hand-made and drawn or made with cutting and scissoring etc, and then photographed, or made entirely online, using whatever apps or programs or downloadable material you like, with your design skills on show. Can you use a meme in a positive way?

The poster is to be based on something you have found in slides 10 through to 27 in the SEMINAR slides for week 2. We want you to post this poster as a response, and maybe use in your own room one day and to reflect on your own classroom display experience.

Keep up the great work,

the ECL310 team.

I'm pretty new to this wonderful world of BL (actually manga in general!) and got curious since watching Yuri On Ice!! (which I now know its not exactly Yaoi lol), which in turn led me to myreading manga though doujinshis for YOI! Looking for anime/OVA for BL I stumbled to Ai No Kusabi, which I read is considered a classic?I read all the books and though problematic, plot-wise I loved them considering when they were written. What I wanted to ask was how come there are SO few doujinshis for ANK!

I honestly have no idea… 
Maybe it’s because the OVA’s were kinda short… 
Or maybe not that many people read light novels? 
No clue…
I like the 2012 one better btw :3 I wish there were more OVA’s… I never thought of looking for Dj. Maybe I should do that ^^

And Yuri on Ice might not be Yaoi, and the officials might not even call it BL (for several reasons), but they stated that Victuuri is canon, that their relationship is “romantic”, so it’s definitely shonen-ai, even though there is no sex on ice ^^
Edit: AND THEY KISSED.

So I’ve been re-reading Robin Hobb recently and, well, her books are just awesome. Not only are they unique stories in an interesting world, and written really well, but they have some pretty cool stuff in them: 

  • A character whose gender is unknown and who expresses male and female gender (Assassin and Fool books);
  • A character with Down’s syndrome (Fool books) who is portrayed as a complex human with valid emotions and experiences (ie. he is a real character);
  • A huge swathe of women and girls, all different, all complex, all with their own character arcs;
  • Feminist themes (Liveship and Rain Wild Chronicles);
  • Gay characters who are actual complex people, one of whom is a main character (Rain Wild Chronicles);
  • Discussion on consent and abusive relationships (Rain Wild Chronicles);
  • Characters with physical disabilities (Rain Wild Chronicles).

I’ve read a lot of fantasy, and Hobb has to be one of my very favourites. Hobb’s books are very fantasy (magic, dragons) and they are incredibly original and beautiful to read.

This moment in A Crown of Swords always cracks me up.

This poor guy is just doing his job carrying buckets, then all of a sudden the Amyrlin Seat is accusing him of carrying horse sweat.
And like he can’t even defend himself bc Aes Sedai don’t lie and she’s The Amyrlin
