fannish things on Sunday

Feb 09, 2014 13:33

* I was told that there was a women's hockey fandom, and I went, "OH? I would learn about hockey for a women's hockey fandom!" But no. There are 55 f/f fics on AO3, and more than 2/3 of them either are genderswap or have the f/f as a background pairing. AND there seems to be none of the glorious tropey stuff that men's hockey fic is full of. This is no good at all.

* It finally occurred to me to look under the general Marvel (Comics) tag on AO3, just to see what was there, and there's actually a fair bit of stuff! A lot of what I expected, Steve/Tony and Billy/lots of people, but also random things like "Natasha watches Olympic curling" and Laura+Daken sibling feels. So I'm going to keep an eye on that and maybe go through the whole tag sometime.

* Relatedly, I am bemused by how many fics are marked only with "Marvel Cinematic Universe," maybe with "Captain America (Movies)" for flavor, and yet are clearly based entirely on comics canon. Natasha/Bucky is especially where I'm noticing this.

* Don't ever start the movie Hanna with the intention of only watching half of it. You will be sorry.
