Due South


This is a very deep and very profound journal entry. In it, I tell you how I have got my very own LiveJournal, thanks to the wonderful lethe medusa. In it, I make sure I actually know how to post an entry.

What? You mean I've already told you those things? You don't want me to repeat?

Huh. I guess that's the end of my very deep and very profound journal entry.

PS - Apparently the "ve" of "I've" isn't a proper word. LiveJournal suggests "I'vie". Also, "LiveJournal" isn't correct, even though that's how they spell it. Don't you just love spell-check? It's only slightly better than grammar-check (Blech!)

Gay Marriages

Anti-Marriage Protection Week

I think this is in protest of Bush's Marriage Protection Week (which is technically going on right now). But I think non-Americans should take note as well.

Definition of Marriage (according to Ontario courts): "the voluntary union for life of two persons to the exclusion of all others."

I'm from Ontario, where we legalized same-sex marriages a couple months ago. Two dozen couples applied for licenses THE VERY NEXT DAY. Look at the (Toronto) stats since then. (Taken from Equal Marriage Stats Page

(Yes, the US and other country option means that anyone, anywhere can come to Ontario to get married.)

The total number of licences issued to same-sex couples between Jun 10, 2003 and September 30, 2003: 757

The total number of licences issued to same-sex couples where both partners were from the United States: 247

From other countries: 18

From other provinces: 49

From Ontario (other than Toronto): 54

Recommended Reads

Recommended Reads

These are stories I have really enjoyed (or, if they're works in process, I am really enjoying) that have not got nearly as much recognition as I think they ought to. So while there are other stories out there that I enjoy immensely, if they are widely recognized, I'm not going to repeat the rec. My blurbs are mostly a version of my reviews left on said stories, so if you want to check out the full thing, go to the site.

Left Behind by Green Eyed Lady

I loved this fic for several reasons. One, the beginning featured James and Sirius being James and Sirius. Green Eyed Lady captured their companionship well in this fic, both when James and Sirius are "on-screen" and off, the latter through the eyes of Peter and Remus, of course. I love the Sirius/James dynamic (and no, I'm not talking slash here).

Speaking of Peter and Remus, as much as I love James and Sirius and adore well-written fics featuring them, I liked Peter and Remus' part better. It was well thought out and well written. I liked how Peter was so good at understanding people's actions/reactions/feelings on one hand, and was so utterly jealous and simply not understanding why he's being "left out" of James and Sirius' best-friendship. Peter's character-to-come was hinted at - because no one wakes up one morning and decides to switch sides during a war - yet he wasn't evil incarnate, as is too often the temptation in MWPP fics. Remus trying to deal with Peter while recovering from the effects of the full moon - making him ignore things he might not otherwise (although knowing Remus, Peter was right when he points out the werewolf is too willing to overlook his friends' faults just so that he willing continue to have said friends). Very in-character all around.

Bete Noir: The Black Beast by Nightspore

Catchy and engaging. Writes in a style that I normally don't like, but makes me sit at the edge of my, er, bed (I don't actually have a chair at my desk). Other words I used to describe it were "heartpounding, breathtaking and edge-of-my-seat." Interesting characterization of James and Severus, who are the only characters (unless you could werewolf!Remus) in the story so far. I especially like the way they interact with each other. I was skillfully manipulated so that even though the fight wasn't resolved, I found the (chapter) ending very satisfactory.

The House of Wolves by Tupper

It starts out well enough, but Tupper really gets into the groove of the story by about the third chapter. By the eigth chapter I was raving that it was "amazing. Really amazing. Absolutely amazing." The eleventh chapter she reduced me to speechlessness (and thus guaranteed a spot on my fav list and under my recommended reads). There is a more serious, dangerous undertone than in most MWPP stories - at least most in-school ones that are well-written and believable. But at the same time there is a genuinely funny vein of humour running through it. Tupper combines both genres magnificently.

Feuds by MorganD

I have a confession to make. My favourite HP stories out there involve Sirius and James, not as lovers, but as the deepest and best of friends. I love Sirius and James. I really do. Actually, it's not much of a confession, as you've probably guessed as much by now if you know anything about me.

This story features Sirius and James in a "what-if Sirius were in Slytherin and James in Gryffindor" scenario. It is not made clear at first, which is my biggest criticism against this fic. But once that confusion was cleared up, MorganD presented a very plausible case for how their friendship was so strong despite being in warring houses. The teasing about Romeo and Juliet, which was which, and the horror that Bertha had overheard them was fantastic. Above all, the sense of brotherhood that these two share is perfect. At the time I called it one of the best Harry Potter stories I had come across in a long while.

NEW! The Boys of the Old Brigade by Crunch

This was mostly a James story. Yes, Sirius was there, and he was characterized magnificantly, but it was James' story in the end. And if everyone wrote James like Crunch did, he would, hands-down be my favourite character.

It is a war story. Not a fighting story - the little fighting referred to wasn't graphic but emotional - but a story about a person in the middle of a war. Even the happy, joyous scenes had a thread of sorrow running through them. Which just made the story even better for it. It fit. There was no jarring realization halfway through, which wouldn't have been nearly as affective. And the last scene nearly left me speechless.

Cat-Tales by chris dee

Those of you who clicked the link before reading this have probably come back scratching your heads. Chris hasn't written any HP fic. There's only Batman. Yes, I am well aware of this, but Cat-Tales is such an amazing series that everyone ought to read it, no matter how much or how little you know Batman and Catwoman. Even if you have a vague idea that Batman is Bruce Wayne and Catwoman is Michelle Pfeiffer, read it. It doesn't matter if you'd answer "Who?" or "Which one?" when asked who Robin is. Read it. It doesn't matter if ... it doesn't matter if anything. Read it.

It's a Catwoman and Batman story, but it's not like any other Catwoman/Batman story (well, series) you've ever read before. Nor is it like any romance you've ever read before. Because chris dee has managed to do what no one in tv, movies or most fanfic or books cannot - she's written a true, realistic romance that actually progresses as the story moves on. And progresses in the same manner that I know many relationships in real life to have progressed. Certainly at times Selina and Bruce are two-steps-forward-one-step-back, but that's only to be expected. There's certainly no "Together this week, apart next week, together this week, apart... etc..." that drives me crazy on most tv series. Or, as I said, fanfic for that matter.

Then, of course, is the humour of the stories. What can I say about it? It's the type of humour I like. And, of course, the characterizations are spot-on. There is not a single two-dimensional character in any of the the thirty-six stories yet. Even when writing walk-on roles that have are there for two paragraphs and never mentioned again, chris dee manages to them come alive.
Due South

This is fun!

Okay, this is possibly my last entry for today. I'm heading back to my parent's house for the weekend. My grandpa's visiting. I haven't seen him in years.

I'm posting a drabble. Mostly to see if I can get the cut thingie-majig to work. Do I think this is really how it happened? No. But it was fun to write.
