Ok, so this may be a bit presumptuous but they are polling right now for Femslash12 and I am pretty damn excited. I have watched from a distance the past couple years but this year, goddess willing, I am going to take the plunge and sign up. Even folks who plan to be "only readers" can vote. so please, practice democracy...and show my beloved Downton Abbey and A Song of Ice and Fire some love....because they are not doing as well as I had hoped. Sadness. I have lots of femslashy feelings, but for whatever reason, I never seem to have them for the large femslash fandoms. But then again, I have always been an obscure fandoms person. 

To all my fellow ASOIAF fans, a friend forwarded me a CFP (that's "call for papers" for the unitiated) for a volume on "A Game of Thrones and History." Damn was I ever tempted to submit something, despite that I am no one's idea of a medievalist, If it was straight up cultural crticism, I might be tempted, but I think this would require waaaay too much background research on something outside my field. I guess the world will never get to know my academic wankery on "Faceless (Wo)Man: The Female Masculinity of Arya Stark." But if other scholarly fannish types feel so inspired, you should go for it! 

I also took a spontaneous trip to DC this week and met up with my best friend and her baby (yay!) and another female friend with whom I have an extremely complicated and tempestuous relationship and her baby. (???) Le sigh. I'm still trying to process it all. I may post about it. A meeting with She Who Must Not Be Named always leaves me feeling a little shaken and stirred.
