I said I was done with Marvel, but now there are tons of new titles coming out this fall, and I have to at least rubberneck.

* Spider-Woman - I have no Jess feeling, but the pregnancy plotline for a female character is just a leeetle overused, don't we think? More importantly, how is this the cover. How. This isn't even a challenging pose; she's just STANDING. With a BROKEN BACK.

* A-Force - I read an issue of this via Secret Wars (although apparently it's getting rebooted RIGHT AWAY, and seriously, how stupid is the reboot stuff yet? HAVE WE REACHED REBOOT STUPIDITY HORIZON). It was cute? IDK, team of entirely ladies to protect island entirely of ladies; hard to go completely wrong.

* All-New Wolverine - by which we mean X-23, it looks like. I'm a bit leery of this book because authors tend to go the angst porn route with X-23 in ways that make me uncomfortable. We'll see.

* ULTIMATES - aka Al Ewing's new book featuring much of his Mighty Avengers team, YAY. Unrelated to the Ultimate universe, afaik; there are, after all, only so many superlatives to go around. I just read all of his Captain America and the Might Avengers run this weekend, and it was utterly delightful. Can't wait for more. And as you see on the cover, MONICA RAMBEAU HAS HER DREADS BACK.

* Uncanny X-Men - so apparently Psylocke+Fantomex+some other baddies vs the world is just a long-term thing now. I mean, I'm not complaining. (Except, ugh, Land. WHY. WHY.) I still need to finish the rest of Spurrier's X-Force, now that it's all up on Marvel Unlimited.

* Old Man Logan - okay, this is just me being uninformed, but Wolverine is dead now, right? So who's Old Man Logan?

* Extraordinary X-Men - "Featuring adult Iceman, Storm, Colossus, Magik, Old Man Logan, teen Jean Grey and Nightcrawler." Okay, that could be a pretty great team, yeah? Fairly old school. Possibly lots of fun. And Jeff Lemire is writing, of whom I've heard good things? Although less for his team books.

* Ms. Marvel - still! \o/ Good job, Marvel.

* The Mighty Thor - Same Thor team, same Thor lady, All-New All-Different title! I got bored of the lady Thor book because it was like 80% fights, but it was really pretty. I might check it out in trade.

* Captain Marvel - Female writers + art by Kris Anka. I have basically given up on Carol; I didn't enjoy KSD's treatment of her at all. Maybe I'll like this better? The cover is great, at any rate.

He wasn't sure whether to kiss Rei-san or curse her for carting him off to Chris' father's gym for his physical therapy. He thought there might be discounts involved. Either way, there was Chris involved, and he was very aware of how pathetic it was to want to show off via physical therapy, thank you, he just... couldn't quite stifle the impulse. He'd never been able to completely stifle that particular impulse, around Chris.

Title: Victory Conditions (The Rashomon Remix)
Fandom: Vorkosigan Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold
Remix of Improvisation by [livejournal.com profile] fawatson
Characters: Miles Vorkosigan, Ivan Vorpatril, Cadet Kostolitz, Baz Jesek's awkward younger cousin who isn't canon but totally should be.
Rating: General
Word count: ~8600
Also available on AO3
Summary: After an Academy training exercise goes - not wrong, Miles would insist, just unexpected - the squad reassembles to take stock. Kostolitz is trying to figure out the Vor; Ivan wants to do things like a normal person for once, whatever that entails; and Jesek is just happy to be included. Meanwhile, somebody's just a little too interested in what Miles' squad is up to. This is incredibly silly, and I meant every word.
Notes: Based almost entirely on canon from The Warrior's Apprentice, though there are some oblique references to things that happen in later books.
Thanks to my second readers: [livejournal.com profile] harmonyangel for beta reading, [personal profile] resolute for general enabling, and [personal profile] stultiloquentia for making me fix the ending.

For this year's remix, I got [livejournal.com profile] aadler. Which makes my job easier - lots of good fic to choose from - but also harder - because it's so well written that I don't really like to change anything.

As it was, I've remixed for [livejournal.com profile] aadler before, three years ago, so I limited myself to his more recent fic.

(I might do a proper catch-up post later, but real life has again been... interesting, to say the least, hence my absence from online)

I just realised that there are exactly two fics in the Haleh Adams tag on AO3, and they are both written for me. This makes me kinda sad.

Also, I'm apparently the only person commenting on The Mentalist fics on AO3. This makes me even more sad. Please, friends of mine who like The Mentalist, go over there and read some fic and leave feedback and make me look less like a sad weirdo.

What's The Point Of Comics Criticism? A Conversation Between Daniel Elkin & Colin Smith. Very interesting discussion of the role of cultural criticism, and how and if a critic should constrain themselves to certain approaches.

Je Suis Airboy: Why Airboy’s Defenders Need to Listen and Reflect Instead. That the comics mainstream, including creators, is gross in any number of ways is not new, but this nonetheless felt like a worthwhile response to a particular comic's issues.

Batgirl: Transgender Representation and the Power of Words. And this, meanwhile, is a great example of the better way to respond when one's work is criticized for being offensive, including an extensive panel-by-panel comparison of some changes made to a recent Batgirl comic in response to criticism.

You'd think I would cease to be surprised by the general incompetence of every single aspect of Marvel's website, but no. On the one hand, the fact that their "manage print subscription" page is nonfunctional again is no real surprise - it's been broken more often than it's worked since I've been subscribing to Marvel.

On the other hand, this page supposedly advertising the special Battleworld-set Thors miniseries has the correct photo and "recent talent" that I assume is accurate (I know Aaron's writing it, anyway), but the copy is advertising THE FRACTION RUN, which was three volumes of Thor comics ago and last published in 2013. And they're advertising Coipel on art, when his last issue hit stands in 2011.

Seriously. Most incompetent online vending I have ever seen in my life.

Ryan Lambert asks, How many goals could Phil Kessel score with Penguins?. The short answer: a lot. Some prime quotes (not all of them necessarily related to goal scoring):

The Toronto media is obviously loath to get into the “fancy” stats (or as they are known, counting numbers with some division mixed in)


His best friend in the whole wide world ... Tyler Bozak. ... Now, again, this is Kessel's best friend and Kessel felt comfortable with him on the ice, so who was Randy Carlyle or any other coach to break them up as long as Kessel kept filling the net with goals (which, you'll remember from above, he certainly did).


Crosby increases his linemates' career goals-for per 60 by more than 68 percent. Malkin does so by nearly 47 percent.


If Crosby can drag Chris Kunitz onto the Canadian Olympic team, he might just win Kessel a Rocket Richard.

DK is kind of ridiculous and shouldn't be taken seriously, but this article is really just a bunch of quote from Kessel about how happy he is to be going to Pittsburgh. He sounds positively overjoyed.

Meanwhile, Steve Dangle gives his reaction to the trade. The last four minutes or so are a nice summary of Kessel's strengths and weaknesses.

And if you need an example of just how bad and well into ridiculous the Toronto media is, here's one dude's take on the Kessel trade. You see why I have a soft spot for the guy. He gets so much crap.

Specifically, he gets a ton of flack for his eating habits and not looking like what we generally expect athletes to look like. Reading media about him is like Survey of Bodyshaming 101. Even people I generally think of as respectable journalists or bloggers just have to get a line in about how he's a good player despite what he looks like. The guy was the highest-scoring guy on the Leafs all six years he was there. He's one of the fastest in the league. Does it really matter a damn if he LOOKS athletic?

ICON UNUSUALLY APROPOS TODAY.

Okay, so, we acquired Phil Kessel (minus some retained salary) and some other players and picks in return for Kapanen, Spaling, and some other players and picks. What this means:
* We got Phil Kessel! Who is a legit superstar. And now he's ours.
* We got Phil Kessel, who was probably my fav hockey person in the NHL who wasn't a Pen (except maybe Ovi, but I think Ovi is happy where he's at). I have a huge soft spot for Kessel because of all the crap he's taken from the Toronto media and management over the years. And now he's ours! \o/
* Toronto RETAINED SALARY. WTF.
* We didn't give up Olli OR Pouliot. I think this means Rutherford is magic.
* We dumped Spaling, who was serviceable but cost too much.
* Now we won't/can't trade for Patrick Sharp. Or his face. \o/

First, your OBLIGATORY FIRST PHIL KESSEL READ.

While we're at it, here's one from Puck Daddy today specifically about the ridiculous Toronto media and its ridiculous treatment of Kessel.

And here is HockeyMeesh's breakdown of the trade. Meesh is my fav Pens blogger, btw; you should totes follow him on Twitter.

Second, some worthy quotes. First, from the article by Seth Rorabaugh above:
General manager Jim Rutherford said discussions on this trade went on for approximately a month. Coupling that with the somewhat light package of assets the Penguins gave up, it's a pretty clear illustration of how badly the Maple Leafs wanted to get rid of Kessel.


Rutherford again, this time courtesy of Dejan Kovacevic:
“You can never know with trades. Over time is when you can best judge trades,” Rutherford said. “We got the best player in the trade right now. It usually works out for the team that gets the best player. To not take a lot off our team and to add Kessel, at this point, that gives me personal satisfaction.”


Basically I am just going to spend the next several weeks going, "We got Phil Kessel. We got Phil Kessel!" I am positively giddy, you guys.

What are you currently reading?

The Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, on audio, which I downloaded from the library as soon as I finished The Bone Clocks on CD. Once again, I'm not sure what I'm reading at the start, and I had to google at one point to make sure my copy wasn't missing a section (it wasn't; if you've read this you know what I mean). But sure, Mr. Mitchell, tell me more. I'm still at a very early point...

Skin Game by Jim Butcher, also on audio. Also very early on. Trying this because it's one of the Hugo nominees for Best Novel. See below re: the series it belongs to.

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie, in a paperback I bought when the sequel came out, thinking I would need to reread it before venturing into the second book. And I was right. I liked it a lot the first time, and I like it more on rereading because the stuff that took me a long time to get a handle on the first time through (the various cultures the narrator is navigating, the relationship with language, the relationship with gender) is stuff I now understand and underneath is a ripping yarn. I'm about halfway through the reread, it should go fast.

• What did you recently finish reading?

Storm Front by Jim Butcher, the first book in the Dresden series. (Skin Game mentioned above is the 15th). I wanted to read the first book to at least get some grounding before going forward. This was rocky for a few reasons: most notably, the audiobook was obviously really cheaply, poorly produced -- which is funny because I think I first heard of this series when someone mentioned that James Marsters from Buffy was the reader and it's not really him so much as they must have blown their budget on a 'name' actor instead of things like pacing and correcting mistakes and making sure words are pronounced correctly. (He also reads Skin Game and it sounds fine, so there seems to have been a learning curve for all involved).

Re: the book -- I didn't hate it, I wasn't actively turned off by the narrator (maybe because I'd been warned he's kind of a sexist jerk and expected it to be worse.) And it's a very polished, well-plotted book. But it really struck me that (1) absolutely nothing is subtext; the first-person narrator spells out everything that happens and why, in a way that's really not necessary in a plot-driven book that has dialogue and lots of scenes -- everything seems overexplained and there's nothing for the reader to do, if that makes any sense and (2) the book handles stakes poorly; we're told early on that, for various reasons, the narrator expects that he's going to be executed by the magic police or w/e and we keep hearing this over and over again so there's no way for the stakes to escalate. And obviously, even if this weren't a 15 book series, it's very unlikely the first-person narrator/protagonist of this kind of novel is going to die at the end of the book. Plus the character doesn't have any relationships to care about (except with his cat) so between those things there is nothing that's going to happen to this character that I'm going to care about so.... I'm not saying Jim Butcher should have threatened the cat, I'm just saying that would have given me some reason to be following this dude's story. (Yes, there are women in the book who get threatened and harmed but that's a whole other set of issues.)

After I finished the book, I found out that the author wrote it for a writing course when he was 25, which SORT OF explains it not being a great book, but I generally have a lot of affection for first novels by young writers, because I expect them to be messy and raw and not very polished (Dennis Lehane also wrote A Drink Before the War for a writing class when he was in his 20s and that's busting out with excess and weirdness and multipage rants about what 25 year old Dennis Lehane thought was wrong with race relations and social inequality and gentrification in early 90s America, and that's a terrible book in places but parts of it are transcendently great). I don't know the story behind Storm Front but I'd guess a very savvy editor got their hands on it and figured out how to turn it into something that would sell -- which CREDIT WHERE IT'S DUE, at least they did their editing, which does not always seem to be the case with commercial fiction that goes on to make a lot of money. (Imagine if the editor of Twilight insisted that it needed an actual plot structure.) (I personally enjoyed reading Twilight much more than I enjoyed reading Storm Front but see above re: me and weird first novels and add my overidentification with Bella Swan.) Or maybe I'm wrong, maybe Butcher was just that good at plotting out of the gate. I find the particular ways that this book doesn't work to be interesting though.

Oh, and I also finished The Bone Clocks. That sure was an ending that novel had, I tell you what.

• What do you think you’ll read next?

Ancillary Sword. Or The Goblin Emperor. Or The Three Body Problem. And I should crack The Dark Between the Stars at some point, I suppose. And oh apparently my book club is reading The Goldfinch this month. . .uh, maybe I'll catch up with that in August.

I’ve not been about much this month. My apologies for not keeping up with responding to comments and posts. This is because the past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity. For one thing, we finally got our act together and began work on the house. The first big job that needed doing was the roof.

The roof was a cheap and nasty MDF slate affair. The original tiles that covered the cottage, which would have matched the neighbouring cottages and houses, were lost. The roof had not weathered the years well. Repairs had been bodge jobs, and it leaked, so the walls on the first floor suffered from damp. This meant that we couldn’t plaster or paint them, because they’d be ruined in six months by water damage.

We decided to replace the cheap pseudoslates with the real thing, and to have the front porch and bay window fitted with proper mini-roofs as well. (I think of the bay window roof as a hat.)

The scaffolders arrived at 8 AM on a Monday morning.


The old roof, from the back, post-scaffolding and pre-roofing.

+12 images showing the transformation )

Now that all this is is (almost) done, we can feel confident about redecorating and repairing the interior of the house, as well as repainting the exterior. And once we’ve recovered from paying the bill (yowch), we can think about Phase 2: Converting the conservatory into a livable room.

In conclusion, responsible home ownership is ruddy exhausting. Also, expensive. Also also, why was it so exhausting even though all I did was organising the contractors, make a lot of coffee and answer questions about what I wanted?

At least it looks nice! I think? Reassurance would be most welcome.

You guys! I bring tidings of great joy! Beside all the other good stuff that happened last week, I mean. There are movies to squee about!

Like every year, I largely celebrated Pride Week here in San Francisco by going to the Frameline (LGBTQ) Film Festival at the historic Castro Theater. We all gather, listen to the Mighty Wurlitzer upon which the organist this year played "The Wedding March" to tumultuous applause, among other entertaining things. It's an ultra-fun scene, and the films can be quite wonderful.

I went to three biggish films which will most likely be coming to a theater or streaming device near you:

One good... )

One scary... )

One dynamite... )

Non-festival films... )

TV can be good, too... )

There are a lot of different motivations for writing fanfic, and one of them is certainly, "Let me put my eccentric headcanon out there in case somebody ever wants to pick it up. RELATEDLY, I once wrote an FMA ficlet about how Roy Mustang was a teenage gigolo (in a very small town kind of way), and then I forgot about it and then years went by and then Remix Madness 2015 happened. . .

And some delightful person wrote Look At You, Out to Make a Deal, which features four women Roy let buy his dinner and one (guess who?) that he spent his own money on. I love all the world-building detail, and how it's funny and a little sad and Roy why are you a human disaster? and poor patient Riza, et cetera. Love it.

If this is an author I know from around fandom, I don't immediately recognize the work, but Roy and I raise a glass to you, mystery author

Happy to have Remix Redux back in all its glory. The archive is open here, with entries in a variety of fandoms I've just started to sample.

Some delightful anon (though I have my suspects. . .) wrote Imbalance (The Tramps Like Us Remix) for me. It's based on an X-Men Movieverse a story I wrote that was supposed to be a cute fic about Scott and Jean and Remy playing with a dreidel on Hanukkah and turned out to be about Scott feeling trapped and hopeless and Jean's powers going out of control, and Remy is just kind of . . .there because I wanted Scott to make mean jokes about his accent? Well, the remixer has taken that and switched it Remy's point of view, brought in some canon from X-Men: Origins: Wolverine, and that really opens up the story in some fascinating ways. Now I want the Remy that this author is writing to meet up with the Scott that I was writing.

Also, I wrote that story at least eight years ago, and Scott has been standing out on the back patio brooding all that time, so I'm really glad Jean finally brought him a coat. It was cathartic for all of us.

Poking around just a little bit in other fandoms so far:

Always Another One (The Robin Recruitment Remix) visits the characters of Gotham Central -- this is always the DCU of my heart -- and builds out from the "Dead Robin" arc of that series to examine the incarnations of Robin over the years.

And Magic Boxes (The What Remains Remix) is really a couple of different stories, one about Howard Stark's fears about fatherhood, and one about Peggy Carter's relation to Howard and how that moves through her interactions with Tony throughout the years. I appreciate fics that work to reconcile the different versions of Howard we see in different films, and I love what's being done here.

I wrote a thing in the main collection that I don't expect anyone to guess. I also failed to write anything for Remix Madness, but I'm excited to see that go live later tonight.
