10th-Jan-2009 12:34 pm - I kissed a(nother) girl...
For funsies, I'm gonna make this horrible, no-good, catchy pop-song more acceptable to me. Because while cheating is bad, psuedo-lesbians are worse, in this case. Grrr.

This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
I got so brave, drink in hand
Lost my discretion
It's not what, I usually do
Just wanna try you on
I'm curious for you
Caught my attention

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed the girl just to try it
I hope my girlfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

No, I don't even know your name
It doesn't matter,
You're my experimental game
Just human nature,
It's not what,
Good girls do
Not how they should behave
My head gets so confused
Hard to obey

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chap stick
I kissed the girl just to try it
I hope my girlfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it,

Us girls we are so magical
Soft skin, red lips, so kissable
Hard to resist so touchable
Too good to deny it
Ain't no big deal, it's drunkenness

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chap stick
I kissed the girl just to try it
I hope my girlfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed another girl and I liked it
I liked it

Original no-good, bad, catchy song belongs to Katy Perry. I'm just having fun. I'm not sure about the "it's drunkenness" line, there, but "it's innocent" certainly doesn't fit, but I can't come up with anything else. If anyone does, please suggest a change! xD
(This parody should, of course, be sung by a girl like the original, for the proper funsies, but it would of course work just as well with a guy.)

Remember that!
Saw Hancock today. Movie? AWESOME. So much awesome, I totally missed its faults until I started thinking on the movie after. But, before that, more awesome. The way they did the flying? My heart is all a-flutter, because it was, yes, awesome, and cool. it was funny at parts, and definitely cool all over. Except for the standard heterosexual threesome-that-wasn't plot, but it ended satisfactorily, so while I still have no points to give because it was used at all, I give that a pass.

But. Yeah, there is comes, the but. Problem is, I'm having trouble articulating my "buts" while not detracting from the awesome, because the "but's" are there... parallel to the awesome. Yeah, I think that's it. So, without further ado;

Spoler Line, Do Not CrossCollapse )

But, despite this, parallel to this? The movie IS awesome, and I would def. see it again! :D

This is what happens when you're coming up with myths and legends concerning the founder of a (in)famous pirate port. Your brain just won't let it stay as "legends" and starts to work with figuring out what is myth and what is reality...

Title: A Life Most Extraordinary (Otherwise known as The Life and Times of Captain Demoneyes)
Chapter One: Childhood (Ends)
Rating: Adult, I suppose, or at least teen.
Warnings: Violence, some gore with that violence, pirates, death and sexuality. Perhaps sex later. Nothing right now, though.
Summary: There's a port town on the western coast of the Koribii Peninsula, facing Blackglass Ocean. Pirates, robbers, thieves and other scum of the world, along with a small amount of drug dealers, rule this city. It was founded around two hundred years ago by a pirate captain known as Demoneyes. The city was named Kruvia's Crown.
This is the story of the girl who would become Captain Demoneyes, of the pirate behind the sacking of the town that would become her base of operations, and of the woman that decided on the name of the future "capital" of the Pirate Coast.
This is the story of a life most people only know from adventure stories, and everybody knows those kind of stories lie. But this is the truth.

When the land is dusty and rain falls seldom, the ocean seems very far awayCollapse )

A continuation, of sorts, to the story posted back in January. I got poked, prodded and inspired into writing down another of the danaane's myths, despite their poetic way of telling it being a pain in the ass. But I can't just not write down their myths in ways they wouldn't tell them, now can I?


Title: Mana's Light
Sequel/continuation to A Beginning Song
Rating: All. Seriously. There's the most poetic of mentions of sex, but, yeah.

And the song of beginnings will tell of how things were...Collapse )
26th-Feb-2008 04:17 pm - Female Genital... Whatever
What to call it? That seems to be the problem. If you use "mutilation" as the third word, you're disrespectful against the women it has been used on, despite the fact that it is a mutilation, though only if we're talking about anything beyond removal of the clitoral hood.

Removal of the clitoral hood? Closest possible analogy to male circumcision, so, that could be "female circumcision", right? I, at least, can go with that, it's as non "mutilating", though completely useless, as male circumcision.

Beyond that? Taking away the clitoris, the clitoris and part of the labia, or taking the whole works away plus sewing it up? I don't care how "disrespectful" the terminology is, but that is mutilation. Why be respectful about a practice that isn't respectful towards the women who it's used on?
But, okay. Shouldn't use "FGM" anyway, all right. I suppose using FGC (female genital cutting) is as neutral as you can get, but it doesn't convey what is done. And if anyone uses female genital surgery, I'm going to scream. "Surgery";
1 : a branch of medicine concerned with diseases and conditions requiring or amenable to operative or manual procedures (Merriam-Webster)
# The branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of injury, deformity, and disease by manual and instrumental means.
# A surgical operation or procedure, especially one involving the removal or replacement of a diseased organ or tissue. (The American Heritage)
4. a medical procedure involving an incision with instruments; performed to repair damage or arrest disease in a living body; "they will schedule the operation as soon as an operating room is available"; "he died while undergoing surgery" [syn: operation] (WordNet)

I had no fucking idea that taking away normal(ly functioning) parts of the outer female organ was a "surgery". To me, surgery implies fixing something, making it better. Completely destroying parts or the whole of the outer female sexual organ is not making it "better", is not "fixing" it.
How about FGD? Female Genital Destruction? Because removal of the clitoris functionally destroys a dimension of female pleasure that's not connected to reproductive sexuality. Going even further and sewing it up doesn't just destroy the outer sexual organ of a woman. It negates it. Annihilates it. It's a smooth, negative space where there before was a positive (as in, folds and parts part of a normal vulva that existed, and taking this away negates it) space.

I'm tired of passing off various efforts of change/destroy the female body as "surgery", as "fixing" it, as "making it better" as "making it societally/culturally acceptable, whether that "acceptable" is outside pressure or one the woman experiences in her head.
Breast surgery? Adding or taking anything away (besides reducing breast size because it's injuring you); Wrong.
Taking away "excess" fat? (If it's not done because all that is threatening your life); Wrong.
Putting in toxins or whatever in your face or other places to smooth out wrinkles? Wrong.
Binding feet? Wrong.
Cutting off the clitoris, or the clitoris and labia and then sometimes sewing it up? Wrong.
Most of the examples up there I count as "wrong" simply because they're mostly done so the female body will conform after some social/cultural idea of "good/beautiful woman" (or to avoid excessive attention, like huge breasts can give you), but they're also harmful, and all of them are destructive. They destroy a woman's body. End of fucking story.
So, really, fe/male circumcision is also "wrong", but it doesn't destroy anything, really (except when it does, due to accidents), but it's completely useless.

But, okay. I suppose FGC will have to be used, even though it does not express the complete destruction of (part of) women's sexuality as well as genitals. There's nothing "respectful" about destroying women's sexuality, and "FGC" doesn't really express the whole dimension of annihilation going on in that procedure, but, whatever, right? It's not just about the destruction of women's genitals, you know. It's about the destruction of a dimension of pleasure not tied to what traditionally is seen as the be-all and end-all of the Woman; reproductive function. Babies. Woman as Nothing Else but Mother. It's about the destructive annihilation, physically, culturally, socially and mentally, of a part of women's sexuality that is independent of reproduction.


Come on, now. Call me a sex-fixated imperialist (or should that be sex-and-genital-fixated imperialist, to be more complete?). I know you want to, right?

And now, a ficcy interlude concerning Sweeney Todd.

Title: Never Fine Again
Rating: Teen, I suppose. There's some kissing and groping going on here.
Pairing: Mrs. Lovett/Lucy Barker
Summary: Not long after Benjamin Barker was sent away, Mrs. Lovett goes upstairs to warn Lucy that the Judge is back again, but it all ends up so much more, whether beneficial or not.
Movie/story not mine, but the, uh, "song" is.
Spoilers: Well, if you haven't seen the movie... This also takes place before the story itself, just a few weeks after Benjamin Barker was sentenced and shipped off.
Notes: This isn't a songfic, but it includes lyrics, changed as well as not, from the movie, and an original "song".

Hush my love, and tell me...Collapse )

:D This is the prologue, not to any particular story, but rather to my universe/the world of Aldaliss itself. An "introduction", if you will, to how things are and work in Aldaliss. It's more poetic than straightforward explanation, though, as it's framed as a traditional recital/song of one of the peoples of Aldaliss.

A song of beginnings... This is how things are;Collapse )

Would the phrase "ample yet perky breasts" please follow the guards quietly over behind the chemical sheds for execution? THANK YOU. We have endured its tyranny for long enough, now. NO MORE.



Bah, I tell you! *shoots the phrase herself*
21st-Dec-2007 08:01 pm - Christmas (kinda) story!
This is the equivalent of a Christmas story, though, of course, it's not Christmas at all, since this story take place in another place entirely from Earth. But before you read the story, a myth has to be told...

Darkness was alone in the world, beside the great goddess Mana, and she was lonely. That the life Mana created each time perished in the all-pervading night that reigned didn't make Darkness feel any better about herself, for nothing can survive and flourish in complete blackness. Lonely, and ashamed that it-her very existence was making any new life impossible, Darkness hid at the bottom of the sea.

Down on the empty seabed, Darkness found a single stone sparkling despite the fact that no light yet existed. Fascinated, Darkness ate the stone, and then quickly had to rise to the surface in surprised horror as it-her stomach grew and distended. Calling upon Mana and her daughter, the goddess of knowledge, the two helped deliver the first life-light unto the world. And so the Sun and the Moon were born, and life could flourish in their presence.
