Critical thoughts on “Once Upon A Time” and fandom

Over on Tumblr, I’ve been carving out a niche in the Once Upon A Time fandom for a place where we can critically analyze the show and the fandom, with a special emphasis on the messages it sends and what people take from it.

For the most part, I kept a lot of that stuff over there because my Tumblr is the place where I can really relax and let my freak flag fly. That said, I do want to start bringing some of my OUAT stuff over here because it’s relevant to Ars Marginal.

Keep coming back and bring some friends because it’s going to get pretty interesting now.

Check out these fucking blogs and comms!

All LiveJournal communities so far, but feel free to add your own shit from other platforms.

uhuranspock4foc. Started by yours truly for the Uhura/Spock ship – but without the race!fail. Includes fanfic, discussion, and other shit you might find interesting. If you ship Uhura and Spock, take your ass here and join.

inclusive_geeks. Just what it fucking says. Make sure you got your 101 on and leave privileged bullshit at the door. If you aren’t the typical “target demographic” for the gaming industry (and even if you are, but you don’t want to deal with their fucked up entitlement issues), you’ll find a great home here.

foc_u. Created by my internet husband neo_prodigy for fans of color. Doesn’t matter your genre or your fandom, as long as you get with the program and act like you got some home training, you good to go.
