coprime: two game-obsessed, winning-obsessed nerds (ships that I ship)
Thursday, June 15th, 2017 07:08 pm
Canon: DC Universe
Pairing: Big Barda/Scott Free
Canon Level: Married

Yay for happily married couples who love each other. Barda is both bigger and stronger than Scott, something Scott is one hundred percent okay with, which is really fun to read about. It's hard not to like a couple that finds such joy in each other.

Pairing: Querl Dox/Lyle Norg
Canon Level: Friends/Colleagues

I am most familiar with the Threeboot continuity, fairly familiar with the Rebooted continuity, and somewhat familiar with the cartoon continuity. I am down with Brainiac 5 and Lyle in whatever incarnation I can get them, although the Reboot continuity is the most adorable version. Brainy and Lyle are a good match for each other intellectually, Brainy being more intelligent and Lyle being more creative, so they feel like they'd make good partners. Querl's not always the best at social situations, but I feel like Lyle would understand as he's one of the very few people who can follow Querl's though process and who can appreciate fully Brainy's efforts. And I think Lyle would pose a good challenge to Brainy and force him to expand his thinking and keep him from getting stuck.

Pairing: Booster Gold/Ted Kord
Canon Level: Best Friends

Booster and Ted are fantastic together. Best friends who bicker while getting into or out of situations that can often be described as hijinks. They're the pair who argue over every little thing, but they still play off each other and work together like a well-oiled machine, causing wacky chaos in their wake. There is a fic where Booster and Ted essentially double dog dare themselves into having sex, and only with these two does that seem like a perfectly plausible way for them to have a first time, which I feel also pretty neatly sums up why I like them.

Pairing: Bigby Wolf/Snow White
Canon Level: Married

Ah, Bigby and Snow are such a classic-style romance, I can't help but be swept in. Bigby, the gruff detective full of devotion, managing to get Snow, the beautiful, determined leader, to fall for his somewhat dubious charms. And then the two of them, building a life together and figuring out how that will even work, which the hardest part of all. It's a very whirlwind romance once things finally start going somewhere.

Pairing: Bart Allen/Tim Drake/Kon-El
Canon Level: Friends

Do I ship the trio because I like all the sub-permutations? Do I like the sub-ships because I think the trio is nifty keen? Or did I just like a couple of the sub-ships so I decided to try the trio and ended up liking the other permutation as well? I do not know, nor do I care. Because, see, the whole point of the poly ship, for me, is that while all the pairings work on at least some level, they work best when they're all mixed up together. Just Kon and Tim spends a lot of time on the broody side of the spectrum, even though I think they'd enjoy the company in their angst-fest, so having Bart around would help them not be consumed by the angst fest. Just Bart and Kon could spend a lot of time goofing around without ever getting into the nitty-gritty of an actual talk about their feelings, but having Tim around, even though he's not an open sort of person, could lend some weight to any conversations they have and get them to be serious. And just Tim and Bart...okay, I think that one works well as is, but I like adding Kon in. I've a lot of lingering fondness for him, mostly based on how ridiculously 90s he was at first, I will admit.

Canon: DC Comics
Pairing: Bart Allen/Kon-El
Canon Level: Friends

Kon, for all of his many issues, does not have a personality that is driven to angst naturally so much as one that has angst thrust upon it by events and teenager-hood. And Bart, for as weird as his life and perspective on life can be, is pretty good at taking things as they come without a lot of additional drama. So I think they'd be a surprisingly normal high school aged couple despite their superhero status and mentor issues and all that jazz. I think they'd enjoy doing what's normal for their peer group together in a way that's normal for them--dinner and video games or going for a run/flight or experimenting and exploring with each other.

Pairing: Bart Allen/Tim Drake
Canon Level: Friends

Bart and Tim would be adorable. Tim's so serious and secretive most of the time that getting him to loosen up is an effort. (And, no, the act he puts up of a normal kid around people who don't know about Robin doesn't count.) But I think Bart's energy and high spirits would be able to do the trick. And Bart doesn't generally come across as smart, but that doesn't mean he's not thinking or that he doesn't know things. Tim's very good at evaluating people, so I think he'd be more likely than most to see Bart's strengths and take him seriously. They'd balance each other out well.

Pairing: Ralph Dibny/Sue Dibny
Canon Level: Married

I am going to try super hard to not go into all the reasons I don't like Identity Crisis in this entry, mostly by pretending it doesn't exist, because that miniseries was chock full of DNW for me. And Ralph and Sue deserve better than that! They are an absolutely adorable couple, able to banter and make fun of each other while also working together on cases. Ralph would be a much worse detective without Sue by his side, and couples who solve mysteries together are pretty much always lots of fun. Add in snappy dialogue, and I am completely sold.

Canon: DC Comics (Green Lantern/Green Arrow)
Pairing: Connor Hawk/Kyle Rayner
Canon Level: Friends

I like Kyle, despite his comic being the origin of the phrase "women in refrigerators." He's probably my third-favorite Green Lantern. Connor and Kyle are a nice variety of the classic Green Lantern/Green Arrow team up, a more low-key version than Ollie and Hal. They can bond over the legacies that they feel like they're failing to live up to, but I like their slightly less storied superhero careers as a much more relaxing alternative to read about than the big names.

Pairing: Tim Drake/Kon-El
Canon Level: Friends

Hmmm, I am struggling with what to say about Tim and Kon, although whatever I do say should probably be prefaced by the disclaimer that I slid away from keeping up with DC in general starting with Identity Crisis and by the time Infinite Crisis rolled around I'd stopped reading entirely as I was not happy with the direction DC had taken basically every character I liked. So the Tim and Kon that I want to kiss are from their Young Justice/early Teen Titans days. Kon's trying to find how he fits in to the world (an ongoing project for him since basically he came into existence), and Tim needs to be able to lighten up and be a teenaged kid. They both have a lot to deal with, some of it shared experiences and some not, and they trust each other. They'll bail each other out of whatever ridiculous situations they find themselves in and liven up their more mundane civilian lives. And the heart of why they work is that their lives are equally ridiculous but they still want to be there despite that.

Pairing: Bart Allen/Carol Bucklen
Canon Level: Friends Who Were At One Point Interested In Each Other

Bart and Carol were so cute together in Impulse. I mean, Bart was a sweet kid in general back during his Impulse days, with more enthusiasm than sense and a lot of heart underneath it all. (Don't ask me what he's up to nowadays; I stopped reading DC a while ago.) And Carol was a great foil/companion for Bart. She was smart and logical and still understood Bart. They made a great team, and I will forever be annoyed at how DC torpedoed their potential relationship.

Canon: Young Heroes in Love
Pairing: Frostbite/Off-Ramp
Canon Level: Together

Young Heroes in Love is a DC series from back in the late 90s. I don't remember it very well because it was an uber-tiny fandom even way back then and two decades' passage has not made it more popular. But I remember that it was fun with a colorful cast of heroes and also extremely soapy. Off-Ramp is sort of like Wolverine if Wolverine liked cars and could teleport. Frostbite is pretty much literally a snow elf, which I feel is a character description that will either immediately make a person go "yes, please, with bells on" or "meh." Frostbite and Off-Ramp have a lot of something between them throughout the series which eventually comes to a head and they start dating, only for the series to end. I thought that was patently unfair back when I first read the series, and I hold to my opinion now too.

I always enjoy writing up my thoughts about the books I've read, but I never seem to stick to it long-term. So here goes try number three at making it stick.

Ladies of Lantern Street #1: Crystal Gardens - Amanda Quick*
I wanted so much to like this book but in the end there were too many things that left me rolling my eyes for it to be more than okay. All of the dialogue, but especially Evangeline's, came across as affected and unrealistic to my ear. The constant use of the twee word "psychical" didn't help either. The romance between Evangeline and Lucas lacked any sort of tension. Lucas very quickly realized that he wanted to marry her and then that was it for his romantic plot arc, while Evangeline said the relationship would end after the danger was taken care of but then acted exactly the opposite. There were several plot points that just felt like they were never explored as fully as they should have been so that when they got wrapped up at the end, it all felt too neat - the final confrontation between Lucas and Judith, the confrontation with the murderer that included six pages of dialogue explaining the murderer's motivation, and the really cute secondary romance that got one scene devoted to it before the couple ended up happily engaged offscreen. The last was especially disappointing because I would have liked to see more of them. They seemed surprisingly well-suited to each other, but all I got was that one scene.

There were good bits - the different suspense plots were interesting, and I always enjoy seeing family and friends work together and help each other - but so many things threw me out of the story that I couldn't immerse myself like I normally do and that significantly decreased my enjoyment of this book. I really did want to like it too.

Flight v3 - Kazu Kibuishi, ed.
This is a collection of short comics by about twenty-five different artists spanning a variety of styles, genres, and emotional tones. I was very surprised by the quality in this volume; I thoroughly enjoyed around two-thirds of the stories. The other third mostly had the problem (for me) of me either not understanding the comic or finding it a bit dark for my taste. And there was one comic I vehemently disagreed with. (I don't care what a stranger looks like, if I find them with their hand inside my purse, I am assuming they're stealing from me and I really don't think I should be faulted for that.) I would definitely enjoy reading the other Flight collections.

Hereville v1: How Mirka Got Her Sword - Barry Deutsch
I originally read the 57-page webcomic version of this (that has since disappeared off the internet) and enjoyed it so much that I knew I wanted to get it in dead tree form as well, especially since the book was over twice as long. I have a feeling that one can read the book's subtitle ("Yet Another Troll-Fighting 11-Year-Old Orthodox Jewish Girl") and pretty much know whether this is the sort of thing one wants to read or not. I loved everything about it: the art, Mirka and her stubbornness, her family, the look at Orthodox Judaism (something I know little about), and especially how Mirka finally won her sword.

Sector General #1-3: Beginning Operations - James White
This is an omnibus of the first three Sector General novels, and after reading this I am eager to get the rest of the series. The Sector General novels are science fiction stories set aboard a gigantic hospital in space. The first novel was a bunch of independent short stories while the other two were more of a novel being presented through linked short stories. I loved the imagination shown in the different types of aliens and in the mysteries presented by their symptoms. I never once felt that these medical mysteries were getting repetitive or predictable.

The only annoying bits were a fair amount of repetitive descriptions (Everything was originally written as short stories that got independently published and then gathered into novel-length format. So explanations regarding the hospital in general and some of its tech and the more common aliens just gets repeated nearly word-for-word.) and a really jarring bit of sexism. The first short story written was written in the 1950s, and I know a lot of older science fiction really doesn't do too well on the "female characters are people too" test. Sector General surprised me by feeling like it could have been written within the last twenty years. Until I got to the bit where Earth-human females can't use this one particular bit of important technology because our brains are too emotional and using it would drive us insane. So there's like five hundred pages of awesome alien medical mysteries, twenty pages of repeated descriptions, and one page of sexist crap.

I dealt with it by just ignoring that one page, but other people's mileage may vary.

Life Behind the Mask: Memoir of a Youth Baseball Umpire - Michael Schafer*
I'm not sure why LibraryThing matched me with this book (I don't have many sports-related books or memoirs in my library.), but I'm really glad it did. I took my time reading it, enjoying it leisurely, and letting the author's love for the game sink in. The author explains many of baseball's more complicated rules and uses those rules as an excuse to tell stories about some of the more memorable games he's umpired for. I'm only a casual baseball fan, but I never had problems understanding the author's explanations. I came away from this book with a greater appreciation of the game of baseball as well as a greater understanding of the game.



*I won a copy of this through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program.

Is it wrong that I always get incredibly excited whenever I find a Firefox extension that fixes some niggly behavior to how I like it? Today, it's the ability to permanently sort my bookmarks -- and I can specify which folders I want to sort and how! -- thanks to SortPlaces. Now if only there was an extension so I could easily create duplicate bookmarks (ideally with also telling me when I was about to do so), my day would be made.

The Best of the Spirit - Will Eisner
I figured something labelled "The Best of" would make for a good introduction to one of the most influential comics ever, and I was right! This was amazing. Just incredibly innovating and imaginative and good even when compared to current-day stuff. Not that everything today is good, but The Spirit manages to be unique even when compared to sixty years worth of comics. My favorite thing about The Spirit is the same thing I love about Mushishi. All the stories are focused on people in them, rather than on Eisner's cool idea or neat art or some other bell and whistle that exists to show off and doesn't actually help tell the story. (Something that is, sadly, not as common as I would like.)

God Save the Queen - Mike Carey
This was a gift from a friend, and she got it for me because I really like Lucifer, a different title by Mike Carey. And those sorts of reads are always a bit of a crapshoot, so it was nice that I did enjoy this, mostly because of the art. (Drug use, which isn't something I like to read about generally, features heavily, and I found the heroine unlikable until about two-thirds of the way into the story.) All the pages are painted by John Bolton and are surprisingly realistic yet pretty. I have a feeling that his art is an example of photo referencing done right, but I can't find anything to confirm that he does that. In any case, the art has a slight static quality due to the fact that it's painted and referenced, but it grew on me quickly as I read.

Mushishi v6 - Yuki Urushibara
Finally, a volume with stories that weren't made into episodes for the anime! Because, okay, I adored revisiting the stories as each volume came out, but having completely new material to read is wonderful. "The Chirping Shell" I found charming, and I dare others to find the idea of seashells chirping like birds anything other than charming. "The Hand that Pets the Night" was a surprisingly creepy horror story (surprising because I rarely classify Mushishi stories as horror). "Under the Snow" was nicely uplifting even as it dealt with sibling grief, although I had to reread a few scenes because I didn't realize they were flashbacks the first time. And "Banquet in the Farthest Field" was a neat exploration of the lives of mushishi.

Haha, this has been the month of comic books for me. It's been great.

Scary Godmother: Ghoul's Out for Summer, by Jill Thompson: The art makes this comic. Story-wise, it's not bad. It's fun and it's cute, but I wouldn't love this book like I do if the art was only half as fantastic as it is. It's expressive and detailed without being cluttered, and Jill Thompson makes her characters come alive in her drawings. I want to watch the movie based on this series now. I've seen it before, but the CG characters in it failed to be even slightly interesting for me. I think, now that I can fill in the blanks from the comic, I'd like the movie if I were to see it again.

Blue Beetle v1: Shellshocked, by Keith Giffen (writer) and Cully Hammer (artist): I wish all superhero comics were like this, with family and friends and other interpersonal relationships being just as important in the story as whatever evil plot our hero has to foil.

PS238 v1-4, by Aaron Williams: Dude, I read all four volumes in two days and am now sad that I didn't buy volume five last time I was in the comic shop. This series is great! It's about an elementary school for metahuman children. And, oh, it's adorable and funny and occasionally heart-wrenching. Also, volume three makes much more sense when I've gotten to read the two books before it.

Mmm, I got to bake today and yesterday for the first time in what seems like forever. Both recipes (a type of peanut butter cookie with chocolate chips and a brownie with peanut butter chips and a shortbread bottom) were new recipes for me, and both were delicious successes!

Pride of Baghdad, by Brian K. Vaughan (writer) and Niko Henrichon (artist): The story is told from the point of view of four lions who escaped from the Baghdad Zoo when the US invaded in 2003. It's an...odd story for me. It's very politically charged, to the detriment of the story. It felt like Vaughan wanted to write something about the nature of freedom and Iraq and that entire mess and then structured the story around that, so that the message and ideas behind the story felt more important than the story itself.

Which isn't a bad or wrong way to go about writing something, it's just not what I like in my personal fiction reading. Also, if I'm going to read about politics, I prefer it to be via non-fiction. I think Vaughan succeeds (and succeeds in a big way) with what he was trying to do in Pride of Baghdad and Henrichin's art is gorgeous, so the book's a good book and a compelling read, just not quite for me.

Caste Waiting V1: The Lucky Road, by Linda Medley: This was just utterly delightful to read. The story's a fairy tale, and it's one of those where I read it quickly because it's fun but it didn't feel rushed. I like the art and the expressiveness of the faces. I'm going to go on a search tomorrow for the hardcover, which (I believe) collects volumes 1 and 2, since volume 2 is out of print.

How I Proposed to My Wife: An Alien Sex Story, by John Scalzi: This is a short story that Scalzi's offering as shareware. It's a very funny story and totally lives up to the awesomeness promised by its title. Also, I like the idea of shareware fiction.

It's been a year now since I first got interested in comics and superheroes and whatnot. And now I want to articulate some thoughts of mine. After reading all twenty-four issues of the current run of Outsiders in one go, something struck me. Comics work infinitely better if I can read an entire storyline together. I can't stand the stop-and-go nature of comics where I get to read a chapter and then am forced to wait a month to read the next chapter.

I think the problem is this: when I have to wait, it gives me way too much time to dwell on how things could have been better or which bits didn't work and/or make sense or how my favorite characters got shafted somehow. If I read a story arc together rather than piecemeal, then I can see how things work out before condemning them. Or my favorite characters may be ignored for the first half of the story but not the second, so it's all good. And it's a lot easier for me to focus on the enjoyable bits that way too.

A good example would probably be The Titans, which ran from 1999-2003. By the time I was interested in reading this title, all the issues had already come out. I was able to read it at my own pace, which took about a month to read fifty-seven issues. And yeah, there were things I disliked in this title. The orphan kids were pointless and slightly annoying most of the time. I adored Grant, and he ended up shuttled off to live with the Navajo never to be seen again except for two rather bad issues. I didn't particularly like Jesse having an affair with her mother's fiance. And yet, I'd say that I enjoyed the title quite a bit. If I'd been forced to read one issue a month, if nothing else, I would have been ready to stab the orphan kids several times over by the end. I probably would have either given up at some point, or I would have had to force myself to keep reading since if I start a series, I am very determined to finish it.

And then I wonder why my mind works this way where the inherent nature of comics makes thhem frustrating for me. If I had to guess, I'd say it's because these are the reading habits I've formed over the past twenty years. I've never read any comics other than those that appear in the newspaper until last year. And with books, there's never anything forcing you to stop at a chapter unless there's something else you need to be doing. Me, I often say I'm going to read one chapter of my book before bed, and I end up reading five.

And then the obvious comparison would be to say that, well, most books are self-contained while comics aren't designed to be. So comics would be more like a book series and sometimes you have to wait years for the next book in the series. Except, then the problem is that the books in a series are still self-contained. Yes, a book may not make sense without having read the previous ones, but I don't think I've ever read a series where there isn't an ending of some sort for each individual book. (I'm quite sure there are fantasy series where this is not true. My brother says the Wheel of Time series is like this, but I refuse to read it until it's finished if I ever do.)

So obviously comparing comics to books does not work for me. However, there are lots of tv shows where the entire season is a story arc and the episodes aren't self-contained. This does not mean shows like Buffy, since while Buffy has story arcs, it still feels like there's some sort of ending even if nothing gets resolved. No, I'm talking about shows like Lost or Desperate Housewives for two ready examples. Except... I never watched those shows religiously. Desperate Housewives pissed me off, so I try and avoid watching it. The few episodes of Lost I've watched with my mom made it seem like a show I could definitely enjoy, but I don't know if it's non-endings would start to frustrate me or not. And I can't think of any show that I enjoy watching where the episodes don't have endings of some sort, barring two-part episodes and the like.

And all this rambling ends with me having to say that individual comic issues are like chapters to me and it bugs me when I can't read chapters in my own time. So unless I want to stockpile comics until a story arc is finished, reading them is bound to be an exercise in frustration for me. And I wish I could find some way around this because I really do adore so many of the characters I meet in comics.
