[personal profile] nagia: I actually would like kids. The problem is the whole "financial/emotional stability", "being involved in a long-term relationship" and then that whole issue of how the child would be sired.

(6:10:49 PM) [personal profile] nagia: Right. I'll pray really really hard to Jesus for a little bundle of joy.

(11:02:50 PM) [personal profile] nagia: <3 Possibly. But my attention has been given almost wholly over to Tiger&Bunny
(11:03:00 PM) Jen: et tu, Katie
(11:03:03 PM) [personal profile] nagia: (Cannot. Resist. The campy superheroes.)

Well I am on Episode 7 of Tiger & Bunny, and am deeply gratified that Criminal Minds finally paid some attention to Capgras Syndrome, and portrayed it as an actual tragedy rather than just another "Ooh, look at the freak" sort of thing. And yet again mentioning that delusional disorder does not equal violence! (Yes. My standards are low. I know my standards are low. Blame how crappy most media are.) Also, it was nice to see JJ giving a media presentation (with Morgan! He rocks the suit look, he really does) and then using her whole Charm Person act, and the moment where the pit of your stomach falls after she drops the Charm Person act, to get top secret info. And the Morgan-Prentiss angles just keep coming on so strong.

As for Tiger & Bunny... well, Kotetsu puts me in mind of some sort of fucked-up lovechild of Laguna Loire and Diego Armando. Barnaby's glasses keep making me go, "I should write Catch Me!Aoshi!" and I am kind of terribly in love with Karina and Pao-lin. I love Bruce Lee and she is obviously one huge-ass Bruce Lee reference, okay, I can't even apologize. And Nathan. Okay, actually, with the exception of Barnaby (who I still like quite a bit, that silly stoic) it's pretty much a cast full of people who make me go "EEEEEEEEEEEEEE [name] is on the screen!"

And most importantly: I have a job. It's not a great job, but it's high pay and long hours, and that makes me happy enough. Now to arrange somewhere else to live, because gorram I cannot stay here. I love my father and no mistake, but I need space of my own. Away from people.

(10:42:01 PM) [personal profile] dogstar: Now, some fanon says that sparklings get upgraded and don't start off as full-size bots but 'grow' into it via upgrades. Which DOES make logical sense, because honestly, giant alien robots with laser canons and the mind of a 6 year old is a really bad idea.
(10:42:03 PM) [personal profile] dogstar: well, funny, but bad.

Context, for the weak:

I've been re-reading a lot of Western Ink's RK fic, because I've been wobbly emotionally and clearly Aoshi/Misao is the delicious pie to make me less wobbly, right?


Wrong, wrong, wrong.

All but two fics of hers have an Aoshi who is squicktastic (one's a silly piece of fluff with a faintly unnerving ownership undercurrent I choose to ignore; the other leaves Aoshi in crazypants mode and just extrapolates on possible WRONGWRONGWRONG scenarios from there -- so it's deliberate). In one of the fucked-up squicky fics, Aoshi apparently has not thought of Misao "bodily" until she mentioned scars, and did not think of Misao sexually until she mentioned a scar on the inside of her thigh. Which she later confessed she'd received in an attempted rape.

Does this disturb you yet? No?

It gets better: it's only after Misao has revealed that she was attacked and almost forcibly penetrated that Aoshi begins to think of her as available. Now that she's, direct quote from the fic, "stained."

Say it with me: "WHAT."

From a fandom perspective: Let's go into all of the ways this idea is fail: 1. STAINED IS JUST FAIL, 2. AOSHI WOULD KNOW THAT BECAUSE 3. HE'S THE LEADER OF A NINJA GROUP THAT 4. CONTAINS WOMEN. The odds of him NOT knowing a woman who had been assaulted (never mind men who had been assaulted, never mind the fairly high probability he's been assaulted himself) is staggeringly LOW.

Okay, fine, if that's just the way the character thinks and he has Meiji Restoration morals, then I expect the author to hint at this. There needs to be some kind of dividing line between author/narrator. I don't want to see this character think something so reprehensible, and then get everything he wants or asks for, get to force a marriage to a younger female character he's only recently decided was available, and... consequence free.


So I've been writing a what-could-have-been. Not just a faintly new spin on canon, but a "where 'Daughter Figure,' could have gone." Sort of a cross between a remix and a response fic, I guess.

More AIM logs of hilarity:

(following a discussion of what might happen if Misao were turned into an actual weasel:)

(10:10:34 PM) [personal profile] leviathanmirror: Okina would be forced to insist that Aoshi marry Misao.
(10:10:52 PM) [personal profile] leviathanmirror: His behavior was totally inappropriate for a man and unmarried weasel.
