I am such a huge fan of Mei-ing Nieuwland’s playful yet bold art style — especially when she devotes her talents to Avatar: The Last Airbender fan art.

it's just ira: Transformation matters, in response to: "There is but one step from the grotesque to the horrible"

I’m not going to assume that all of the people who have seen and enjoy the modern franchises are terrible terrible people haven’t read the original books, that’s not fair. But it’s extremely annoying to see arguments about sexual relationships as it relates…

Ira’s post is everything I want to say. The ability to transform work is one of the most powerful tools creators today have - where by creators I mean all of us, writers and drawers and musicians and yes, us filthy writers of terrible porn (PS: way to totally sex-shame, too!, OP) - I mean, what? Do I need to create a story that’s completely unique, something never before created on this planet, in a language that has never existed before I invented it (to avoid pesky repetitions of phrase that might be random but would obviously devalue my shit), written on paper I’ve molded myself from fibers I pressed out of plants I picked with my own two hands in the garden I dug out of the atoms I fucking created using nothing but the will of my own mind? Mankind is connected; works are derivative; pretending that transformation of a work is nowhere near a creative act is ridiculous. And your tone makes you a fuckhead.

the source material is the only material that matters; there would be no derivations without it

So what’s the original source, then? Do you really think Sherlock Holmes isn’t based on things in real life? Detectives existed before Sherlock Holmes. So did policemen. So did Britain. Sherlock is derived from all of those.

Any speculation based on derivation is like speculation based on fan-fiction, it has no place for an appreciator of the art of storytelling. It also has no place for someone who truly cares for the series, because if you did, you wouldn’t be disrespecting it with your ridiculous stupid shitty theories.

I have so many problems with this I’m not even going to write them here. Are you actually serious? Because people who write fanfiction obviously don’t care about the source. Am I right, my friends?

Reading this and thinking about his sexuality is like reading Moby Dick and theorizing about the whale’s sexuality.

OFFICIAL CALL FOR WHALE PORN

Irene Adler, or any other woman inserted into any other series, is placed there simply because television executives don’t think you will have the concentration to care about an otherwise excellent series without a female love interest that you can superimpose your face on top of.

Emphasis mine, and also: really? FUCK YOU. The problems I have with this statement are immense.

YES

About:

cats. coffee. cock jokes. chemical engineering. crunkfest.

This is a place for me to post and repost happy shit that I like. It's mostly reblogs of my amazing fandoms (and my excitingly godawful obsessions with them), mixed in with a shitload of cats owls and wolves, with a splash of seriousness and feminism added until it makes absolutely no sense at all. Serve over ice with an attractive man in a suit and there you go. Usually I am drinking when I queue stuff anyway.
