I haven’t been on tumblr for a couple of weeks because I broke my left arm. It is a serious break and I won’t have use of the hand for 3 to 4 months. Hopefully I will be able to start work writing and creating sometime in the next few weeks. Though it’s going to be limited.
We Can’t Get Out Of The Bedroom Now.
Shirley Maclaine on Parkinson in 1975
There’s progress for you.
I hadn’t thought about it being due to the collapse of the Code, it’s a good point I’ll have to mull over. I’ve been thinking that the change was due to the collapse of the Studio System, which was I suspect more money-driven and less (male) ego-driven. That is, there were more movies with roles for women because the men making decisions were actually focused on profits more than personal power.

Welcome Home Bucky.
Some Steve/Bucky Fluff in anticipation of lots of Winter soldier feels.
star wars pirate AU a.k.a.
"pirates of the kessel run: curse of the millenium pearl"
so I was listening to Davy Jones’ theme for hours, and went “hey this reminds me of a sad, nautical mash-up of Across the Stars and the Imperial March”… then “hey, Anakin/Vader is basically Davy Jones, Captain of the Flying
DutchmanExecutor” and then this AU spawned in my brain. and He’s A Pirate = the Force theme and Two Hornpipes (Tortuga) = the Star Wars Cantina?? the parallels are based more on personalities/roles, ignore family relations :P
also I just wanted to try completely reversing the environment of the Anakin vs Obi-Wan final duel… (not that typhoons and giant space kraken are much of an improvement, ahaha)
Star Wars is a myth. It’s an unusual myth, in that its first incarnation was recorded, but it’s based on the same principles as—and, most importantly, serves the same functions as—most other myths around the world, albeit slightly interpreted through the lens of the Heroic Myth Joseph Campbell came up with\analyzed.
So yes, translating it into anything makes sense. Fanfic makes sense. Any thought exercise about it makes sense—because this is one of the truly American mythologies out there.
Sorry for the reblog, but this is really cool commentary – I’ve noticed that Star Wars seems to fit/work well with a particularly wide range of genre and story AUs, and this is a really interesting point.
SO… I made a thing…

Fan Art for “listen to your heart (but don’t say goodbye to me)” by CinnamonCake on AO3
Bucky as Hades and Steve as Persephone/Summer
Sometimes it takes awhile for the muse to stir and sometimes it is like being slapped up side the head. I think this is the fastest I went from reading the story to posting the art.
every time you use the term “mary sue” or “manic pixie dream girl” in a way that blames the character for her shitty narrative an angel loses its wings
and I mean one of the super scary angels with a billion eyes and a fucking lion’s head, not the cute babies with trumpets and drums
the fucking terrifying ones that will eat your souls
stop taking their wings it’s pissing them off
