Full headers, including disclaimers and warnings, are given on the actual LJ entries; but, in case you haven't heard it before, all of these stories are total fiction. They are transformative works, which means I'm riffing on the ideas/events of others. And some of them contain content suitable only for adults.

Onto the masterlistCollapse )

Hello lovely festividder!

I'm a huge fan of all sorts of vids, so please make something that you love first, because I'm sure to like it too.

There are a few things I'm particularly fond of: fast-paced vids, experimental or weird vids, constructed reality or AU vids, and ironic vids. Basically, if you have an off-the-wall idea, I'm the one to vid it for.:)

I have eclectic music tastes -- I like music without lyrics, mash-ups and remixes, all different eras, and fast-paced music.

A pet peeve: I don't like sound-bites over the top of lyrics -- I can't understand either when that's done. But sampling is fine when it's not over lyrics, so if that's your thing, it's fine if there's no clash.

I think that's everything. Thanks again, and I hope you have fun with it.

Dear TW Holidays writer,

I hope you’re going to have a lot of fun filling one of my requests. That’s really what I want most -- that we both have fun with this exchange.

I have pretty broad tastes in terms of genre (basically anything goes, and I'll like it), but fairly specific tastes in terms of relationships and squicks -- that's mainly what I've outlined below.

If you want more info about what interests me most in Teen Wolf, you can find my meta over on Tumblr: http://cupidsbower.tumblr.com/post/91668098320/meta-index.

teen wolf - erica apple
Anyone who has been following my Teen Wolf meta knows I've been struggling with Scott's place in the narrative since I first started watching. Well, with 3B I now think I understand where it's going, and I feel really excited about it.

There comes a point where the lack of focus on Scott making difficult choices and then having to face the hard consequences of how they turn out cannot be seen as an accident or bad writing, but rather a deliberate pattern.
For me, the real clincher in this reading came with the revelation of Agent McCall’s secret. I know fandom mostly thinks it was an anti-climax, but I do not. What we saw there was Scott completely misunderstanding the implications of his father’s confession (I’ve posted about this before here).

teen wolf - lydia i want one
Having spammed you with all the meta I wrote in the lead up to the finale, I now present you with a frivolous wish for season 4. :)

If there is any justice in the world, the following scene will happen in Teen Wolf s4...

teen wolf - stiles detective


Remember this trailer way back before 3a?

I thought it was interesting to revisit it in light of what we've seen so far, especially in comparison to the speculation that followed in the wake of this trailer's release.

Whose story is the trailer telling?Collapse )

1st-Apr-2014 11:17 pm - Asexuality and Derek Hale
teen wolf - derek in ash
Over on Tumblr, I was asked to explain why I think one reading of Derek is that he's asexual. This was my response.

Let me start with a bit of context. While I often do read Derek as on the asexuality spectrum, I don’t think it’s that black and white. There are several other equally valid ways to interpret canon, and I can see those readings too.

That said, why do I think Derek being on the asexuality spectrum is a reasonable reading?

Oh, let me count the ways.

Discussion of asexuality, PTSD, abuse, and SterekCollapse )

teen wolf - triskele
One episode from the end of 3b, and there are a few of the show's character arcs and themes which are actually paying off.

teen wolf - derek in ash
I've seen quite a few posts on my Tumblr dash talking about the scene at the end of The Divine Move, the finale for season 3b of Teen Wolf. Nearly all of them have been positive about the implications for Sterek, and even those which have not been positive have been focused on the lack of "real" Sterek and how that's queer-baiting. Only one has been focused on what this sequence means for Derek, and although that post understood how sad it was, it didn't explain why.

So let me explain why the finale's dream sequence is not romantic, and it's not queer-baiting either.
