Jane Austen, Superman, and Henry Cavill mostly. Also Parks & Rec, Buffy, Arrested Development. We'll see how it goes.

 

Their love is deeply emotional—a rarity to be treasured.

….in which Lizzy is abused by Mr Darcy, and we all applaud — Social Commentary

We all have our reasons for enjoying Jane Austen’s work and for reading and writing JAFF, of course. Some of us like the romance, some of us like the social commentary, some of us like the humor. And apparently some of us—a lot of us, judging from the warm reception some of these stories receive!—enjoy seeing our spunky, smart Regency heroine tortured sadistically by our normally honorable, upright, willing-to-change-for-love hero, Mr Darcy. Sometimes the mistreatment is psychological, and sometimes it’s physical, down to and including sexual assault. But we’re supposed to think it’s all right because, after all, it’s Mr Darcy. Even though he does loads of horrifying things to our heroine, things for which he sometimes really ought to be locked up, things that degrade, demean, and harm her, we know deep down that it can’t be too serious because underneath all that he’s really a good guy, and it’s nothing some good loving can’t fix.

This review needed to happen.

Also, all the reviews on Social Commentary with Hunky Dreamboats are pretty awesome.

This week, we let Amy and Tina take over EW — and they clearly took the job very seriously, as you can see from their opening letter to readers:

"If you are reading this ‘Letter From the Guest Editors,’ it probably means you have read all the other parts of the magazine at least five times and are in some kind of isolated and desperate situation. If it’s a bathroom emergency, try elevating your feet on an upturned wastebasket. If you are in the trunk of a drug lord’s car, try doing that thing Walter White does where he throws chemicals at the ground and they explode."

I didn’t think it was a big deal and it was just ridiculous people fighting on the internet and now I hear that it is on hiatus for a month? What is this?

The criticisms and the hiatus are not a cause and effect kind of thing.

From Bernie Su’s Google doc:

What does this mean? It means that after the end of the Elton arc, EA will not be releasing video content for at least 5 weeks (the month of January).

It wasn’t an easy decision, but it really needed to happen. I do personally feel that the first 24 episodes of EA are very strong. It’s a good viewer  experience. But I do feel that we were scrambling going into the next set of videos.

Basically, if we were to shoot month 4 of EA next week as originally planned, I believe it would suck. Also, we as a team are still scrambling, trying to cast new characters, design interactive experiences. We need to slow this train down, catch up, and repair some things.

Also the main reason why I am able to answer the fandom today is because I put EA on hiatus and could take “today off” - Still in the office, still a Saturday.
