I have a pirate name, and I enjoy it



My pirate name is:


Iron Bess Bonney



A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

So I need to stop spending so much money to wean myself back into academia

 Because I'm failing at it.  Literally.  I need to find a way to bring myself to care.  I have terrible study habits.  They really are very awful.  How do I improve them?  I need to work on this.

Gender-Related Recs Ahoy!

Because I needed more space.

[Original (truncated) post on @wreckoftheancon]

Intemperance by Basingstoke, or why RDJ!Holmes is so short (warnings for preg, kid!fic, and awesome Mary Morstan being awesome)

Oh You Pretty Things by Aria, Life on Mars, in which everything is the same except one day, Sam woke up a woman (warnings for Life On Mars-style weirdness)

Suit of Cups by Senjuti, ASoIaF, Robert was born a woman, is still one, some things are fated (umm . . . warnings for some disturbing imagery, ASoIaF-level happenings, and being in a fandom in which the author is expressly against fic)

Five Things That Never Happened To Aubrey & Maturin, Five: The World Turned Upside Down, by Astolat
Aubrey-Maturin series, a magical genderswap disease leaves the two friends in rather different circumstances
It also has a sequel, by another author, Moon Under Water, featuring more magical genderswap disease

The Wages of Vice by jat_sapphire, historically based 18th century English genderfuck, with characters from a Georgette Heyer novel (don't feel you have to read the novel, it's not worth it, go read the summary on Wikipedia, here)

Promise by findmyantidrug, feature Rule63!Rorschach, and babies (oh, man, don't get me started on the parallels between Laurie and Rorschach in the original comic), and all their issues

The Rabbit Test, by katemonkey, The Losers (movie-verse); when Cougar gets turned into a woman, his relationship with Jensen doesn't change a bit (warning for preg, wishing to reproduce despite extreme gender dysphoria)

An Ever Fixed Mark by seanchai and elspethdixon; comics-verse Avengers, Loki accidentally turns Tony into a woman, hijinks ensue (warnings for preg, miscarriage)

Pigfeathers by Alchemia Dent and Bugland; Harry Potter (I did take things back a ways), Harry wants to be a woman, only Snape can make the potion that can help, things get complicated (warnings for dubious consent)

Home's The Farthest Way by reera the red; Harry Potter (warnings for being on Fanfiction.net), sequel to a gen fic you don't really need to read about the developing friendship between Snape and Lupin
[this fic has issues: the author felt that she couldn't slash the two characters, so she turned Lupin into a woman, and got them together afterwards; however, it definitely works out, story-wise, the gender-change and the mystery behind it makes the plot, not the romance between the two]

Well, that was interesting.

Answers for Lettered

From here, because I wanted to.

What's the crackiest, zaniest fic you've ever read? It was probably that terrifying Bert/Ernie slash that was on Yuletide a while ago.
What's the crackiest fic you've ever read that you thought was good? Either A Dawn of Many Colors, which is Lord of the Rings weirdness that features the author and a girl from the present; or this amazing, short, Life on Mars Mpreg fic, I have no idea where to find it.
Oh, jeez. I forgot Jayne Eyre! Someone inserted Jayne from Firefly into the story of Jane Eyre, replacing the eponymous character.
What's something silly someone wrote that you didn't think would be good, but was? Not an author, actually. Although I once wrote a monologue about Sir Isaac Newton's thesis which got some good reviews.
What's a crack premise you don't get? They can all be valid! As Tim Gunn says, "make it work".
What's the point of wing!fic? I see no point whatsoever. The first slash fic I ever read was Orlando Bloom/Viggo Mortensen wing!fic, and I didn't get it then, don't get it now.
What's a crack premise you see around a lot? I suppose Mpreg counts. I love mpreg, and seek it out, though, so I have some bias.
What's something silly that you would never write? There's nothing I would never not try to write. I don't usually succeed.
What's something silly that you think I would never write? Oh, man, I can think of a lot of things I hope to see you write, and once I go there, I don't want to jinx anything.
What's something silly you wish more people would write? Paint Your Wagon slash! I demand it.
What's something other people think is crack that you don't think is crack? See below, I clearly forgot that magical genderswap diseases don't happen in real life. 0_o.
What's something you think is crack that other people seem to take seriously?
What's the silliest thing you've ever written? Self-Insert Mary Sue Harry Potter fic. Jesus, hold me.
What's your favorite cracky thing? Mpreg. Moar babies, plz. Ooooh, also magical genderswap diseases! I totally forgot about them. See above.
Do you see "crack!fic" as a separate genre than other fic? What about fics with crack premises that feel like they still have something important to say about the characters and canon's themes? There's a Jane Eyre/The Eagle crossover fic I've been reading that talks a lot about the characters feelings on freedom and slavery and independence that I think is very relevant. The aforementioned Life on Mars Mpreg fic really reminded you that the whole universe of the fandom exists in one man's head. Crack can really help unwind issues that characters can't be faced with in the real world!
Will you prompt me (oh-god-please) with 1-5 silly things that you'd actually really want to read? Slash Report Slash. A Sharpe of Sharpe/Dobbin of Vanity Fair crossover, possibly featuring the Battle of Waterloo. Paint Your Wagon threesome fic.

Actually, I may come back and add more to this later. I'll have to think.
