I’m ABSOLUTELY THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE that we’re having a launch party and fandom meet-up in honor of the BROOKLYN zine!! A few weeks ago, I got an e-mail out of the blue from the phenomenal Chloe (reserve) offering to throw us a party! I have never been so stoked before in my life. She and I got together, and ever since we’ve been hard at work hammering out the details for what is sure to be the fandom get-together of the year! And now we’re telling you!!
WHEN? SEPTEMBER 20, 5PM-7:30PM
WHERE? WORD BOOKSTORE @ 126 FRANKLIN ST, BROOKLYN
WHAT’S GOING ON? Artist Q&As! An information session about how to run your own fandom zine! Copies of the BROOKLYN zine for sale, as well as prints, posters, and other cool stuff! Drinks and snacks! Meet a bunch of cool fandom people and talk about how upset Steve & Bucky make you!!
ALSO, THERE’S MORE! Free all day that Saturday? Good, come hang out with us!! Meet us at 1PM at Transmitter Park for a picnic potluck: bring something to share!
THAT’S NOT EVEN ALL! After the launch, at 7:30PM, we’ll be moving to Broken Land Bar to drink our feelings!
Mark your calendars, and if you’re planning on coming, RSVP here to let us know! And tell your friends! I can’t wait to see you there!!
You can’t even fathom how unbelievably psyched I am about this. It is going to be a fan meet-up FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS. Come hang out with us.
I… kinda wanna go to this >_>
Oh that is exactly why I removed the space
HMMMMMMM. I will ruminate on this
I don’t feel like it’s a consolation prize because we were never promised a Donglover Spider-Man - it’s just one of those things that the internet presented as an idea and everyone got really excited about.
And if there’s one thing I’ve learned from my It’s Not Linear series, if you cast a black person as Peter Parker, everyone will immediately confuse them with Miles Morales/ask if you made a mistake/assume you did some sort of fusion. So while I love the idea of Donglover!Peter, I doubt it would ever clearly translate to tv or screen or page.
So he couldn’t be Peter, but he could be Miles, but Miles is very, very young, canonically. (I don’t know much about him, but he starts out at like 13, right?) So to voice Miles is about the best thing we can expect from a public that would be at the very least confused about a black Peter Parker.
****IMPORTANT: Miles on his own is important and neat, I just know nothing about him and don’t have the same emotional attachment to him as I do to Peter, hence my preference for my own Donglover!Peter headcanon above all things.
And maybe “caramel” if I had a Latin@ character…
But seriously, thank you <3 I’m glad you like my writing and my tumbles.
Idk about pet peeves… there are lots of different headcanons and I can see the value in nearly all of them.
I don’t mind insecure virginal Steve who never had a chance to get a piece before getting frozen, no-fucks-given Steve who’s had plenty of experiences before he ever even enlisted, PTSD-which-is-overshadowed-by-Bucky’s-problems Steve, well-balanced Steve, all of them can be written well. The only one I don’t get is ‘dark’ Steve, which apparently happens a bit in Stony fandom? Like, how? And also why?
A weird DC-area job, and sadly, no.
(Being undertasked is great when I’m inspired and have stuff I have to write, maddening all other times. Also, the browser issues are nonstop. Blegh.)
