elisi: (Don't mess with River Song by meathiel)
So, about 1 1/2 years ago I posted part one of this... Like all Five Times fics these stories are connected by theme, not story, although if anyone wants to read the first story, you can find it here: It’s Called Marriage.

(I do have bunnies for the other three stories, but considering how long it took for me to find an ending for this that I was happy with... Well. Who knows.)

Also, [personal profile] owlboy, this is for you! Very late, but at least I did finish it.

Summary: The Doctor is wounded, Jack is out of bullets, the TARDIS is out of reach, and there's an angry mob... Whoever will save them?
Setting: Post-The Angels Take Manhattan.
Characters: The Doctor, Jack, River.
Rating: PG-13?
Wordcount: 2281
Feedback: Oooh, you know you want to.

elisi: (Women of Earth (TW) by kathyh)
First of all: I have not seen Avengers: Age of Ultron.

And I don't know much about the Marvel 'verse except what I've picked up from the movies - and I haven't seen them all. (And it is Marvel, right? Have never read a single issue. I grew up with Asterix & Lucky Luke and Elfquest...)

So I don't know how accurate all the arguments are wrt Natasha's storyline are.

But I read this article with interest: Joss Whedon Calls “Horsesh*t” On Reports He Left Twitter Because Of Militant Feminists.

(Incidentally: 'I haven’t dealt with a lot of [hate], because my fans have always been sweet, erudite, interesting, compassionate people. Like, I don’t know any Buffy trolls.' <- Brb laughing forever.)

There are all sorts of pros & cons and different readings (both of the movie and of what Joss says), but overall, maybe it comes down to the problem of having One Person Represent A Whole Gender...

(Using Torchwood: Children of Earth icon as example of LOTS of different women, with different roles & agendas. <3) (Also, yes, I know adding women is a lot easier when not dealing with already established 'verses. Still. It's an issue.)
