Retaliation Pieces: A Discussion

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 will be updating as many pieces as I can on ff.net this afternoon. I’m putting this here because I really need to drum up support on my pieces. No one is reviewing or commenting and yeah, it is a bit if a numbers game right now. Travis, as per always, has new pieces and instant reviews from his puppets. It’s complete and total BS that none of us get the same attention. So maybe I need to do some promoting and see what happens.

Tl;dr: I’ll be updating later so get ready, and please support your fellow ff.net writers.

For me, that slice of death is usually because I find something else more interesting to work on, and this is a problem I battle constantly.

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.

Pairing Discussion 2

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).

  • 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

Warnings: Some language and sexual talk; PG-13/T rated discussion. Note that some pairings are slash/femslash.

Pairing Discussion 1

[Written February 28]

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.

Pairings discussed:

  • Arthur x Francine
  • Arthur x Sue Ellen
  • Buster x Fern
  • Buster x Kate
  • DW x James
  • Binky x Molly
  • Brain x Sue Ellen
