The following is just a preview of some of my upcoming projects on ff.net and deviantArt.
So I want to do a reader-driven, soap-opera style project over on ff.net to drum up participation in the fandom. I’ve posted these questions elsewhere but I decided to do a poll-style series with buttons, so here I am. If you’re interested, please answer the questions below, and feel free to comment with any questions, suggestions, etc.
When I left the Arthur fandom earlier this year, it felt like I was breaking up with my best friend. Now that I’ve gotten over it, I want to reflect on that time and where I’m going from here.
While the Arthur fandom used to be one of those quiet places where kittens and rainbows roamed without care, it’s lately become a minefield of child-porn-esque pieces and Drama. Call-out pieces and retaliation pieces are becoming more common as the war gets dirtier, so I figured I should discuss my thoughts on the pieces. In summary: I like them, but you have to know what you’re doing.

I have work to do today, thankfully, but in order to ration the pages of said work, I’m going to work on a little entry for you guys here on this semi-lovely Friday (weather is sketchy and Prince is dead. What a lovely day). So, I want to give a little preview of what I plan to do on ff.net now that I’ve returned. I’m also adding a preview for my upcoming WordPress articles.
Well my last pairing discussion had hits and misses for some of you, but I expected that when I decided to write about some of the fandom’s most-used pairings (and pairings I should use more for various reasons). This time around I want to discuss the oddballs, longshots, and just HUH? pairings to see what you all think.
- Arthur x Marina (with some Buster x Marina insights)
- Francine x Muffy
- Sue Ellen x Fern
- Binky x Boy
- Arthur x Buster
- Bitzi x Teacher
- Pal x Killer
- DW x Tibble/ Emily x Tibble
- Ladonna x Arthur
- Brain x Lydia
Warnings: Some language and sexual talk; PG-13/T rated discussion. Note that some pairings are slash/femslash.
My comeback project for ff.net is called “Not Done Yet,” and it showcases the powerful women of Elwood City as they deal with various issues. In this discussion, I’m going to lay out the piece so you all will know what to expect. Expected post date: Soon.

So I really enjoyed my entry about the Tough Customers, which I’m glad you all enjoyed and commented on. Because I loved it so much, I figured I’d do another one, at home, to discuss some other things in the fandom. Today’s entry will discuss some of the pairings, both canon and fandom pairings, to show you all what I think about them. I have quite a few pairings listed and discussed here, but I want you all to weigh in as much as possible. I may even have to break this up actually…. It’s a little long.
- Arthur x Francine
- Arthur x Sue Ellen
- Buster x Fern
- Buster x Kate
- DW x James
- Binky x Molly
- Brain x Sue Ellen
There are some new writers in the Arthur fandom on ff.net. Here are links to their stories:

This morning, I passed by my childhood elementary school. It was like 8 in the morning so no kids were playing on the playground, but it made me think about Arthur, his friends, and their school, Lakewood Elementary. And one major question came to me that I want to discuss in full: Who are the Tough Customers?
