maisie williams is the real mvp of game of thrones tbh. she signed up for this role when she was 12 and it was her idea to play arya as left handed even tho that meant more work for her. she cut her hair off when arya had to pose as a boy and wore painful contacts when she was blinded. she takes on a lot of stunts and choreography while still delivering amazing performances. shes talented and dedicated and this show doesnt even deserve her but im glad we have her anyway.
A few weeks ago, @ikeracity and I had an idea for a ficfest. We want to host a fest centered around disabled Charles totally winning at life and having a grand old time. Want an excuse to write that AU where Charles does track and field events in his rad, tricked-out athletic chair? Or where he’s the head journalist on a breakout new story featuring Erik as a whistleblower informant? Or a professors AU where Charles is the mysterious, hot new professor who Erik is totally crushing on but too chicken to ask out? This would be your chance!
The only requirements are that Charles must be handicapped, and also mustnot be miserable about it. In other words, his disability in the fic is an incidental part of his life, and his life is overall pretty damngreat. The goal, essentially, is to see even more happy, fun, capable, badass disabled Charles fics!
This post is to gauge interest on such a fest and people’s preferred method of … festing(???) Would you be willing to participate? If so, would you be interested in an open sort of event with only posting dates (probably in mid to late August)? Would you prefer a prompt fest or gift exchange? Some combination of these? Something I haven’t mentioned?
If you’d be interested, give this post a like, and send either me or ike an ask, to let us know what you think! (Questions of course are welcome too.)
