|taekarado||10:40 am - Fat and Ugly [Chapters 1-3]|
Fat and Ugly
Blossom thinks that she is fat and ugly, and does some dangerous things to herself. BrickxBlossom. Rating T, because I'm cautious. The first chapter is really short, because it's just an introduction.
Iiiiiiiiii am probably not the best person to be dealing with a fic like this.
God, that sounds awful, doesn't it? But it's true. Don't get me wrong, I loved watching the Powerpuff Girls growing up, empathizing with Buttercup waaaaaay more than I should've, and I'm as pissed off at what the recent reboot did to the show as anyone else. However, my involvement in the actual fic-writing side of the show has been tenuous at best. As someone who was never all that fond of the Rowdyruff Boys, never saw the point of them, and thus didn't ship any PPG/RRB combinations, I never really had a good leverage through which to make it my fandom the way SpongeBob, Die Anstalt, Night Vale and Sims 3 have been my fandoms. My only real shield in that whole heteronormative mess was the fics that my longterm friend commander30 wrote, and even she had to stop someday.
Further, this particular fanfic deals with eating disorders, self-harm, and (supposedly) the issue of your own expectations of yourself not matching up with reality. I have... more-than-passing experience with the latter, and my relationship with the former is, while not exact, equally rocky. Not a good combination, all in all.
But I have owed aforementioned commander30 a favor for some time now, and now that the year of hell is almost over, I'd like to get at least one more attempt at a 'consistent spork schedule' done before 2017. So let's see if I can make the best out of a disasterous plot bunny: this is Fat and Ugly.
( Beauty is only skin deep, you shallow, superficial, ugly, pom-pom waving, cocky, rude, low-life tramp!Collapse )

Fat and Ugly
Alternate Title: Your Experience is Not Representative of Everyone
*booming Narrator voice* Sugar. Spice. And everything nice and/or ass-kicking. These were the ingredients used to create the – not perfect, but still pretty awesome children's TV show for aspiring little girls.
But fanfic author pinkpower, responsible for such classics as Change Your Point of View, purposefully added an extra ingredient to the concoction...
Eating disorders. An eating disorder for Blossom, to be exact.
And thus, Fat and Ugly was born!
Customary trigger warnings: eating disorders (obviously), fat shaming, emetophobia, self-harm, implied violence in places (though not for the usual reasons you'd expect to see violence in a PPG fanfic).

|gehayi||01:40 pm - Postponement the Second|
We have a rough draft of the second part of the "Witches Past and Present" post. Unfortunately, ketmakura is ill and unable to add her comments, and zelda_queen is involved in last-minute wrapping and crafting things out of paper for Christmas.
Also, I already know that our usual Tuesday and Thursday schedule will be impossible next week due to Christmas falling on Sunday this year. (Sunday being the day that I usually ask to have rough drafts--with pics and commentary added--back. Which means that my co-sporkers generally work on the rough drafts on Friday and Saturday. I can't picture ANYONE going over Walker's drivel on Christmas Eve--and I sure am not working on it on Christmas Day.)
So...our apologies, folks. "Witches Past and Present, Part II" will have to wait until next year. We're thinking Tuesday, January 3, 2017. Hopefully that will work out.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Good Kwanzaa to all those who celebrate those holidays, and a joyous winter season to all those who do not. May you all be protected from the elements, well-fed, blessed with clean water, safely sheltered, and happy at this and every time of year. And may next year be kind to--and safe for--all of you.
See you in 2017.

Hi, guys. Walker's essay on witches will not be going up today, as I am sick and have roughly the energy of a rained-on bee. Currently, we're looking at Wednesday and Friday this week instead. Hopefully that will be slightly better. My apologies for the delay.

|carakasla||06:50 pm - Beautiful Creatures--9.15 : A Fork in the Road|
Cara: Hello, everyone! I have a bit of an announcement. After the last mind breaking chapter, HG and I decided that we needed to bring a guest, because misery loves company. Who is our
victim virgin sacrifice Guest? None other than Dark Avenger! *throws confetti*
DA: That’s THE Dark Avenger!
Cara: There are no definite articles in my sporks. Unless I can stab Ethan with it.
HG: Hey, hey, hey. It was MY idea, thank you. After all, why should we be the only two to suffer through this trash? Misery loves company, and all that.
Cara: And I okayed the process. Teamwork.
DA: *sigh* Why do I keep getting dragged into these things? Can’t I just hear about one YA series that sounds slightly interesting but mostly stupid that I tell myself I’ll just let pass and not end up sporking it?
HG: Apparently not, DA. But, eh, you’ll live. I think.
Cara: If I can survive the Throne of Glass spork, you can survive whiny Ethan Wate.
DA: Well, *cracks open a hard lemonade* let’s get this started!
Cara: *Steals one of DA’s hard lemonades* Boss tax.

|esme_amelia||08:45 pm - Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned - Chapter 1|
Ah, I love Inside Out. It's one of Pixar's finest and most mature movies. Yessiree, the timeless tale of a mother who completely loses it when her husband is murdered and takes her twelve-year-old daughter on a revenge-spree of sex and killing.
Wait, that's not the movie you remember? Come on, doesn't this story just SCREAM "Inside Out fanfic"?
Okay, enough crap. Let's just get to sporking this fic that doesn't resemble Inside Out in any way, shape, or form.
WARNING: Gratuitous anal sex, nudity, implied pedophilia and child abuse, graphic violence, and all around DO NOT WANT!

|das_mervin||04:56 am - [MOD POST] I am alive.|
Hey. Merv here.
Yeah, I am back. Kind of? It is a half-return. I suffered a severe and prolonged depressive crash that I am still feeling sometimes, along with finally suffering the one thing any sporker fears: burnout.
The latter is the main one I am gonna address. I am still working on my sporks, don't worry about that. But sporking how I do is pretty draining work, and I desperately needed something lighter and easier and not as labor-intensive to let me recharge and find the magic again. Yes, it is The Chemist, but it is a very casual thing I am doing with it, so if you are hoping for a deep analysis with heavy research, it isn't gonna be like that. Seriously, my review of it is as casual as someone can get (hint: there was booze involved). I am finishing up two more parts this weekend, so will try to start posting it next week.
Happy Holidays, folks, and sorry for the long and sudden silence.

The Threat Of Humanity
Alternate Title: Rewrite of The Elven Unicorn Sue
Remember that hideous Mary Sue I sporked a while ago? The "Last Unicorn" rip off, who's creator insisted that she wasn't a Sue, despite her having almost every single Sueish characteristic in existance? Who saturated her fanfic in purple prose, and after not receiving endless praise for her fic, decided to abandon it? Well, the Suethor made an attempt at a rewrite, which is just as bad as the original and, in parts, even worse. The Mary Sue is still an obvious self insert, who retains all the speshul powers that bothered reviewers before, and continues to be a unicorn, despite how stupid that idea was considered in the original. Let's all welcome the return of the Elven Unicorn Sue!
