in which I enthuse

FIRST there is a fic you must read if any of the following sentences appeal to you: "Doctor Who / Hunger Games fusion", "epic Rose-Martha friendship action gen", "cross-District mythology being made flesh", "Panem Dalek backstory", "Amy Pond and Finnick Odair kissing for the Greater Good". It's the best crossover I've possibly ever read; it, I don' ( Read more... )

Anya ♥

I don't know about everyone else, but I have massive amounts of love for her.

me toooo. She's like the only thing I love about S4. Dance of Capitalist Superiority! <3

Do you watch Game of Thrones maybe? Asha is Yara there.

D'you want a letter or are you sitting out this meme? <3

But season 4 has Hush!

Some of my favorite Anya moments are in The Body. It's an all around great episode, but Anya just breaks my heart in it. Oh, and when they are preparing to fight Glory and Anya just wants more ideas and comes up with so many useful things herself. And all of Selfless! And I'll stop rambling now.

I've been thinking about watching GoT, because it seems to have many diverse women in its cast. But sexual violence/rape is a big panic attack trigger for me, so I've been hesitant. Do you think it's doable to just skip those scenes or are there to many of them?

Yes, please give me a letter!

Also, it's always great to see a post from you! ♥

Your letter is H!

True about Hush, and also Restless. I mean, I don't suppose it's v original of me, but Restless is my favourite ep, probably. (Hush is genius, but more in a see-once-and-die-of-laughter way. Well, and also a go-Willow/Tara-go way.)

True about The Body. I cried, totally predictably. I think my favourite Anya moments were the S6 finale - she didn't have to help save Andrew and Jonathan, but she did, ages before the whole ~redemption arc~ thing started. (Also: hot.)

I have to brb now, but I'll get back to you re: GoT.

Huh, okay, so, I had a long think about rape and GoT ( ... )

Wow, thank you so much for the thoughtful response! (I've been short of spoons lately, or I would've said that earlier.)

I think the show is doable for me, if I watch it while not feeling shaky. Which sadly rules out right now, but I'll plan it in for summer. I'll come back to you for Dany summary then, if I may?

Yes, of course! I am incredibly fannish about the show right now (although there was a horrible horrible episode recently - NEVER watch ep 4 of S2. It sucks anyway, you will be missing precisely nothing) and I am very glad to hear you'll try it! They're doing new and awesome things with female characters this seasons (ie. now there are butches!) and I am totally enamoured by most of the narrative choices.

I am doing a slow, sluggish re-watch of S1 - I will proooobably be done by the summer - so if you like I can keep out for potential triggery stuff for you? I watched S1, and all the sexual violence was contained to Dany's scenes, but there it was basically non-stop. Is there anything in particular you'd like me to pay attention to for you, apart from rape scenes?


laeria April 22 2012, 22:31:06 UTC
ugh, and there is also some rather horrible brothel bits about which I'm uncertain. You can definitely skip those, though, they're gratuitous proof that a particular nasty man is nasty.
