If it's any consolation, it's not actually blue. They're just stuck with that name because Jack Kent Cooke was too chicken to admit that his favorite color was purple.

I bet you he thought purple wasn't ~manly enough or something. Like those dudes who insist they're wearing "salmon" or "light red" when their shirt is fucking pink.

Re: Kinkmeme Discussion

They're referring to how they wrote the first response to the OP but are not the OP themselves. It was in that first response that they put "big and strong"; the OP didn't right that.

You're right, it's bizarre how they felt the need to nix another poster's idea when it's not even their prompt, and then tell them sorry, please keep writing! It's just bad etiquette, and would have been even if it'd been clear they were a different poster from the beginning.

I did, thank you! A little weird because they were giving their opinion like they were the OP.

Hope nonnie fills.

Just to clarify, I'm not nonnie on the prompt. I was thinking about Panarin/Geno and glad to know it's still an option.

I like the Sid/Kathy fills on the kink meme, they're fun to read and it's a pairing I don't see a lot of, but the congratulatory tone of some of the comments (and here sometimes) really bugs me. It's not only the feeling like people are patting them on the back for writing het but also if Carey Price and Angela Price were the ones in the fill, they probably wouldn't get the 'bless you for writing this pairing' comments. Or maybe the comments wouldn't annoy me so much.

Okay I think I'm being oversensitive but I needed to vent.

This is basically fic already. No goggles required.

I love Heart in Hand so much. Now I feel the need to reread it again.

I'm excited to read this McEichel fic though. There goes most of my day.

Re: Fic Discussion

From: (Anonymous)
Well, there's also And Never Been Kissed, which your AU filter took out even though the only thing AU about it is that Geno comes over a year early.

I'd rather have a few thousand words of filler in the middle than a non-ending.

Re: Fic Discussion

downjune's Sid fics are basically just Gary Stu fics in disguise and always have been.

Then she takes another player and creates this insane characterization of him (Flower, Tanger, now Claude) and congratulates herself for paying attention to characters no one in Pens fandom writes or cares about.

How anybody thinks she's a good author is actually beyond me.

Re: Fandom Venting

From: (Anonymous)
Personally I like the fills because I like het and also because it assures me that not everybody around here is walking around with a tinfoil hat on about Sid's sexuality. Why do you take exception to that? If people are happy about something, where's the skin off your nose?

Also, there is actually a PK/Carey/Angela fic that is mad popular. So try again.

Re: Fandom Venting

*shrug* I like the fills too and it's not the author giving off this vibe. Sometimes I feel like people aren't talking about 'I would like to see this rare pairing' but more 'people who write het in this slash-centric fandom are special for that reason alone'. But, like I said, that's probably me being oversensitive to the tone.

Is the PK/Carey/Angela fic the one where PK and Carey get outed or is it a different one? Do you have a link if it's not the that one?

walking around with a tinfoil hat on about Sid's sexuality

Okaaaaay then.

Re: Fandom Venting

From: (Anonymous)
But why can't people who write good, readable het be special for that reason alone? In a fandom where there is a dearth of it? Mind you, I think the fills have been good for more reasons than that, but no one has to justify their love of het or reasons for their love of fic to you, just because you seem to have some kind of inexplicable grudgewank about people liking het.

Yes, it's that one.

Did you get here yesterday? Less than a month ago we discussed on meme how some of the most popular Pens bloggers are awful for many reasons, their misogynistic refusal to believe Kathy exists being one of them.

Re: Fandom Venting

From: (Anonymous)
tbf I'm sure they believe Kathy exists. Just not that Sid would want the beautiful swimsuit model. Who would want that? Yuck.

Re: Fandom Venting

From: (Anonymous)
Oh, goodie, the old "slash is misogynistic!" "het is homophobic!" debate is brewing. That always ends well.

Re: Fandom Venting

I never said slash in and of itself is misogynistic. Thinking your fave would never stoop to fucking a woman is. Is that in dispute?

Re: Fandom Venting

From: (Anonymous)
I laughed.

Sid would never date female models. Sid clearly hates his peers and the culture within the League he plays for. Sid's response to questions about homophobia in the League have been excellent!!!1

God, what a mess.

He's perhaps my 4th favorite and I hate about 80% of fandom "interpretations" of him.

Re: Fandom Venting

From: (Anonymous)
DA I think the tone in the comments that bugs the OP is that suggestion that the fills are good, not because they are good but that their existence is some kind of rebuttal to Kathy deniers.

I think, perhaps, based on your comment on tinhats is that this might be a view you share. But not everyone feels that fic should exist to score points in an argument that is pretty irrelevant to many people who enjoy fic, without believing it has any relevance to the real life circumstances of the players.

Enjoying Sid fic isn't a sign that people believe he is with whoever any more than someone enjoying an oviposition fic means they actually believe that John Tavares is knocking up Dylan Larkin.

Re: Fandom Venting

From: (Anonymous)
I don't think people need to justify liking het, especially good het? I like (good) het myself, but it was just with this particular pairing I found the discussion about it more... I can't think of the word, congratulatory? Patting themselves on the back for liking the pairing because it's different from the norm? If people started to say the same thing for liking, I don't know, Drouin/Mackinnon, I would find it the same way.

That one I already have bookmarked, so that's good.

It felt like more than a month but okay. I was referring to the fact I see more tinfoil hats over Tyler Seguin's sexuality than over Sidney Crosby's.

I'm ayrt by the way

Re: Fandom Venting

Completely irrelevant to the conversation but I think it was actually Dylan Strome, nonny.

Although mpreg between John Tavares and Dylan Larkin is intriguing.

Re: Fandom Venting

From: (Anonymous)
AYRT - Damn, you are right, I need more coffee. And possible someone to write Dylan Larkin getting knocked up or him knocking someone up, either works.

Re: Fandom Venting

Never apologise for spawning great ideas :D

Has there been rookie/vet mpreg prompts on the sin bin with the vet being the one knocked up? Because I have a sudden urge to fill something like that.

It would be more helpful if I knew anything about the Red Wings but the idea is now in my head.

Okay. And not everyone cares that you don't care? Do you see how this could get circular very fast.
