Well, well, but Ecbert does like to seal a new alliance in a certain way, doesn’t he.

Tag it kingship, that’s what I am calling this pairing.

Kingship. Perfection

"Well, surely we could just share him, yes?"

"I suppose we could at that."

"Excellent. Call, it, then."

"Call it?"

"Heads or tails?"

Oh, I think Athelstan will make the overtures…

"In the name of intrnational relations, we should have some."

Why do I now want to actually write this?

I’m way too chicken shit to reblog that, but …

Whoa.

That’s some impressive Method acting right there.

Wait. A snake? Why the fuck would there be a snake on set?

Sometimes, it fucks with my head to know that our dear muffin:

-Cosplays
-Filks
-Loves fan art
-Understands shipping and does some of it himself

…in addition to knowing what to post to send fans into a frenzy AND being incredibly friendly with us.

Dude is like a living personification of fanservice.

The History Channel have gone on a bit of an athelnar binge.

Foreplay.

Anonymous asked: Is that, George Blagden, cosplaying, as Kickass?

starrose17:

lol Yes. That is George Blagden cosplaying as Kickass.  He also went to see the previous Hobbit movie at the cinema dressed as Legolas.  He is a cosplayer and a giant dork.

He is one of us.

Wait … *looks closer*

Hahahaahahahshiiit. *wheeze*

I hadn’t seen that pic before. I am unsurprised, but delighted.

Subtext and subversion: Vikings edition

Here’s that huge blog post I mentioned. Part one is at the link above. Part two (with pictures!) is here.

Two-bit summary: Athelnar is one of the best and most beautifully subversive love stories on TV, regardless of whether one sees a sexual element to their relationship.

This is certainly one of the best fandom metas that I’ve read in years. It should become essential reading for anyone who wants to know more about Athelnar ship. It’s a beautifully written piece, passionate and a joy to read.

You’ve become one of my favourite writers on the internet. I always look forward in reading your posts whether it’s fanfic or essays on fandom, politics or gender queer issues so thank you for sharing it all. :)

Wow! Thanks. :)

I probably don’t spend nearly enough of my writing energy on my actual legit novels, though. ;)

Minimum wage should be linked to the poverty level. 

This is basic economic fact.
A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses. That major multinational corporations can be “successful” while failing to meet a basic operating expense is only possible because We The People pick up their greedy/lazy slack through taxes and charity. 
And yet somehow it’s everybody else who’s a moocher and a looter…
And this corrosive greed is a big part of what’s slowly poisoning the U.S. economy. Money being hoarded at the top and put in “safe” investments and bank accounts is money that does nothing for no one. It’s just an elaborate means of keeping score. Money put into the hands of the workers does what money is meant to do: it circulates. It gets spent. The same dollar will go through dozens of sets of hands, touching dozens of lives, feeding dozens of people and sparking profits for dozens of businesses. The same dollar, in the hands of the rich, will generally do… nothing. It won’t create jobs. It won’t fund innovations. It won’t start businesses.
Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for workers. Less than 3% of the wealthy are actually entrepreneurs (people who risk their money on business ventures that create jobs). 
But 100% of the working class spends their money. That money creates jobs. That money fuels innovations. That money becomes profits. That money keeps the economy ticking.
We have been lied to about who are the parasites and who are the drivers of the economy. We have largely accepted a view of money as a means of keeping score and the economy as something that must have winners and losers, rather than money being a proxy for barter and an economy being a way to divide the labor of society and distribute the load of living

When will we realize that supply-side doesn’t work?

About Me

Texty

Writer of dorky fantasy novels.

Singer of classical stuffs.

Shameless fanthing.

Queer/Genderqueer. Feminist. Progressive. Gen X. Northwest snob. Journalist and media-deconstruction nerd. Happily married and an adoptive parent of a most excellent little boy. Endless pontificator on topics both sublime and ridiculous. Expect both breathless pop-culture squee and wordy rageflails about social justice.

My "home" fandom is Primeval, but these days I'm most heavily into Vikings, Game of Thrones and Arrow. Check my fandoms masterlist to see the other stuff I usually post about. If it has a kickass chick, a charming rogue, and/or an adorkable nerd in it, I probably like it.

I'm an incurable OT3 shipper, particularly of the alpha male/beta male/alpha female flavor, but I ship some pairs, too (het, slash and femslash.) See my ship list for details.

I don't have much time to make fanworks these days, but I have a few fics up on AO3 and some vids on YouTube (under Talea100.)

Fun fact: I had crushes on both C-3P0 and Data.
