    My buddy chibipaw has finally chivvied me into making a “liveblog” thingie, in which I will supposedly be reading Homestuck and posting about my bafflement for your entertainment. The whole thing is readable at tumblr but that involves a whole lot of clicking on "read more" tags, and also, who knows when Tumblr's going to decide to yank a post out of public view.

    Summary

    Aizawa didn't expect to enjoy HeroCon this year. Especially not being on a panel with All Might -- whose bright idea was that?

    Meeting Yagi Toshinori changes everything. He's funny. (Oh no.) He's unapologetic. (Oh no.) He's interesting. (Oh shit.)

    This is the identity porn fic I've been looking for in BNHA.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "The White Room" is possibly the darkest fanfic I have read in the last 10 years. Possibly the darkest ever. DEAD DOVE; if you have triggers DO NOT READ THIS FIC. Pretty much any triggers. Graphic everything. Violence, sex, eating disorders, bodily functions, hygiene, medical... it's all in here, and it's all brutal. Author's warning about the dead dove content is old-school style, which is to say, when we said "Here Be Demons" we meant "this story is going to devour a piece of your soul; consider if you're willing to lose something permanent to read this fic."

    That said - it's amazing. Shigaraki and Aizawa are stuck together and Aizawa is a hero so he tries to help, but he really can't (the villains won't let him) and everything about their setting is arranged to cause horrific long-term PTSD and other problems. It's amazing that they're functional when they get out. (I'd say "sane," but they're... both kinda not. Shigaraki is worse.) And yet. This is a love story. It has a not-unhappy ending. It has the hope of something like a happy ending 10+ years after the story ends, after a lot of therapy. (So much therapy) (everyone involved in this story, not just the victims, needs so much therapy)

    This goes on that damn short list along with Amanuensis' "…And Just Plain Wrong" and that child-prostitute-Harry fic that I read once and never found again. (It's not on AO3. Nor ff.net. It was on some weird tiny archive and it was disturbing.) (This fic is disturbing.) This will not only change how I think of the characters but how I think of the potential of the characters.

    If you were wondering where the BNHA equivalent of Hydra Trash Party or Voldemort's Death-Eater Orgies is, you've found it.
    ...This is substantially darker and more intense than most HTP fics I've read. I am so glad that it had the ending it did, because anything else would've just broken me.

    This is one of my all-time favorites; I have it in various formats on four different ereaders. I love the longstanding relationship between Snape and Draco and how Harry slowly works his way into that.

    Absolutely delightful - reads like a mashup between Who's On First and Skippy's List. Soldiers using their very limited autonomy to mess with their superiors ftw.

    Summary

    Notes/commentary on promethia_tenk's Bring it Home (Sugar Daddy) vid, and is, essentially, a look inside our brains (Owls' (ileolai), Promethia's and mine) by going through the vid (almost) clip by clip. (I was lucky enough to beta/cheerlead as this vid was created, hence the insights - and then I just carried on.) So if you are interested in what it’s saying, and why, and looking at what’s going on below the surface, this is the post for you! With insights into the vidder’s thoughts, much, MUCH meta, and a great deal of self-indulgent asides by yours truly. I mean, the vid is self-indulgent, so the Notes should be too. It only follows logically.

    Plus there is an additional bit of meta end, dealing with Crowley, Heaven & hell, and (serendipitously) tying in to another vid. ☺ Warning: If you are not an emotional wreck by the end, I have failed.
