General Fandom

Janelle Monae: Sci Fi Queen Yet Uncrowned: Sam Keeper (blog) - "I'm surprised at the lack of attention Monae's gotten in geek circles."
topic:race, topic:sci-fi


The truth behind that six-figure deal for Harry Styles fan fiction: Elizabeth Minkel (blog) - "It all feels a little familiar: a work of fan fiction with a massive online following; a six-figure book deal; a slew of media coverage riddled with misconceptions about the nature of fanworks."
topic:journalism


Democratization of Storytelling: Fangirl (blog) - "People told stories before they could be written down. They were communicated around campfires and scratched into cavern walls."
topic:storytelling


How Becoming a Parent Changed Me As a Fangirl: Corrin Bennett (blog) - "So, the last thing in the world I expected when I became pregnant with my first child was any change in my media consumption."
topic:fandom, topic:parenting

The Case of The Ten Cases: The Seventh Circuit Rules on Sherlock Holmes Copyright": Raizel Liebler (blog) - "But the decision also is concerned about the possibility of unending copyright, as proposed by the estate — the idea of adding little bitty bits of character development that could extend copyright long beyond its present U.S. timeframe of the life of the author, plus seventy years."
topic:copyright


Sexualized Saturdays: A Genderqueer Take on Slash Fanfiction: pantydragon (blog) - "Knowing now that there are a surprising number of people for whom the gender binary doesn’t hold true, I like to think that for some small portion of the fan community fanfiction has been an important tool for self-discovery, as it was for me."

In Brightest Day: Mental Hospitals and Abuse in Pop Culture: MadamAce (blog) - "Unfortunately, when we see mental institutions represented in pop culture today, those problems are highlighted to an unusual degree, normally to turn mental hospitals into a thing of horror."
topic:mental illness, topic:abuse, topic:disability


In Brightest Day: When It’s Not Even About People: MadamAce (blog) - "A couple days ago I posted an In Brightest Day about how pop culture likes to present mental hospitals as horrible, abusive institutions. Very rarely do I ever see them represented in a positive light, and I think there’s a reason for that."
topic:mental illness, topic:disability, topic:ablism


A Scandal in Chinatown: Elementary, Sherlock, and Modern-Day Yellow Fever: porluciernagas (blog) - "But fortunately, Elementary’s “You Do It To Yourself" did not encroach on Sherlock’s absolute monopoly on poor representation—rather, the episode did a far better job of handling the trope of the Chinese mafia than did its more famous cousin."
fandom:sherlock, fandom:elementary, topic:racism



Specific Fandoms

A Song of Ice and Fire
GETTIN’ REAL TIRED OF D&D APOLOGISM.: how-much-farther-to-go (tumblr) - "Well, I’ll allow that tv production and writing is not an easy job. I guess that’s why we hire people with the talent for it and pay them shit loads of money. But let’s take stock of what D&D apparently find “easy" or “possible" to do within the limits of putting a fantasy novel series on screen:"
fandom:asoiaf


Untitled: frankensteins (tumblr) - "I know I’m definitely giving far too much credit to d&d when I ruthlessly analyze and tear apart some scenes, but accidental or not, the messages one could get from the scene between Oberyn Martell and Varys is remarkably interesting."
fandom:asoiaf


On Prince Daemon’s Political Savy: thestonedragon (tumblr) - "The Rogue Prince complicates our understanding of Prince Daemon, who was portrayed a bit more steadily in The Princess and the Queen. "
fandom:asoiaf


On Reading The Hallowed Hunt by Lois McMaster Bujold: mightyisobel (tumblr) - "I’ve been writing about justice in Westeros, or the lack of it, and I ran into a good contrasting example from the third book in Bujold’s Chalion series, which has a medieval-ish Europe-ish fictional feudal setting."
fandom:asoiaf


Homicide by Fire: The Mystery of the Death of Ser Harwin Strong: colonel-green (tumblr) - "One of the little mysteries featured in George R. R. Martin’s new short story “The Rogue Prince" surrounds the death of Rhaenyra Targaryen’s alleged paramour, Ser Harwin Strong,"
fandom:asoiaf


Jaime and Lancel parallels: maidenofthevale (tumblr) - " Lancel is quite a pitiful character but his aspirations of wanting to be like his idol – Jaime, also parallels Jaime himself, who desired to be like Ser Arthur Dayne:"

fandom:asoiaf


Game of Thrones
Legacy of the Children, Part I: msunyata (blog) - ""The Children" can easily go down as one of the most controversial episodes of Game of Thrones throughout its entire run, thanks to its many alterations - and, of course, its omissions, which may, for the first real time in the show's history, be even more important."
fandom:got, fandom:asoiaf

Naruto
Oh My Pop Culture Buddha: The Path Toward Enlightenment in Naruto, Part 1: syngraphea (blog) - "Let’s get one thing out of the way: I know my current favorite anime/manga series Naruto has tons of issues. I know its storytelling has been feeble for years now, it’s a total trainwreck from a feminist perspective, and it throws around religious references frivolously, like they’re sprinkles on a sundae."
fandom:naruto, topic:religion


Once Upon a Time
Once Upon a Time Season 3 Was Less Than Magical: Lady Saika (blog) - "I have been putting this review off for as long as possible because I just have so few positive opinions about this season and I don’t want to have to recap the weird and awkward mess that was the plot."
fandom:ouat
