cut for the spoiler in case there are other people still watching the show.Collapse )

fic rec of awesomeness
by pixielady (kuwdora)
at February 22nd, 2008 (09:56 pm)

So. I have been on an Ando kick recently. And, sure, there are plenty of stories featuring Hiro/Ando 'cause their love is so canon, but beyond that I haven't found many stories featuring more Ando and less Hiro. But I have found one that pings me particularly well-written, in character and is delightful to read.

Three Point Plan by toestastegood. It's 6,000 words of unrequited Ando/Mohinder (with a side of Hiro/Ando), set post-season 1 and AU's for season 2.

"His plan is full of the beautiful, intelligent simplicity that Ando likes to pride himself on. It goes something like this…"

toestastegood breathes so much light into Ando. I'm so captivated by the fic. This is the Ando I oh-so-desperately want to see more of in the show. It's definitely a must-read.

Does anyone have any good Ando recs? Hiro/Ando, sure, and I've seen Adam/Ando kind of grow in popularity, but how about the Ando/Niki stuff? Anyone written that or something else? (ANYTHING else, please?) Or, um, am I going to have to host an Ando-a-thon in order to populate the Internet with more fic, art and perhaps vids featuring one Ando Masahashi?

I've posted a vid to Blue Man Group's "Persona" here. It's intended to be a character study of this community's namesake (lack-of-name-sake?), who is, as many before me have pointed out, written more as a plot device than a character.

vid: Grace Cathedral Hill, and bonus Maya meta
by pixielady (kuwdora)
at January 3rd, 2008 (08:44 pm)

I have a meta vid about Maya and in the vid post I go into my reasons for vidding her and my angst surrounding her character. I thought this would be the perfect place to crosspost first.

Grace Cathedral Hill
Pairing: Maya character study
song/artist: "Grace Cathedral Hill" by The Decemberists
length/size: 3:49, 39MB DivX AVI
spoilers: Through 2x11 "Powerless"
download at: mediafire, sendspace, megaupload or watch it on iMeem (also embedded in my journal)

When all the city lights blind your eyes / are you feeling better now?

This vid came about when I realized how much Maya hateage there was on the Internet. I understand this sentiment, really. Either people are annoyed by her character or they are embarrassed by her. Sometimes Usually both. She's been called whiny and naive, or outright stupid. Whether they hate her because of who she is or how badly she was written seems to be equally divided amongst fans. I can see why they feel this way, but I am still inexplictably drawn to Maya and her pain. I can relate to her subconcious dependency on men. I just.. I like Maya. *cont*

If this isn't permitted, feel free to delete.

I just feel bad that Monica Dawson, the character has such little representation as a whole in the Heroes fandom (I've only seen two fics featuring her - ever - and in one, she was a supporting character and the other was a haiku), so I was thinking of creating a community dedicated to her.

So really, I'm just asking to gauge interest. Would you guys join/post at a Monica comm?

EDIT: The community is now open!! mimic_it

Vid rec!

current song: Vince The Loveable Stoner - The Fratellis

I'm sure pretty much everyone has figured out that I haven't been too happy with the show lately, so here's some stuff that made me happy about the show!

some_stars has made Jack or, Adventures Reading Against the Text, a constructed-reality vid that is about the Heroes I want to watch (spoilers through mid-S2).

While I'm at it, heresluck made People Get Ready (spoilers through 1x22). coffeeandink writes about the way it re-envisions gender and race in the show.

charmax made The Wreckoning, a kickass Niki/Jessica vid (S1 spoilers).

shati made Perfect Memory, about Claire (spoilers through 1x17), and Help Is Coming, about Claire and Hiro (spoilers through S1 finale). She's also got recs for selenak's Heroes fic (spoilers through 2x09. I haven't read the fic yet, but am excited!).

cherryice made Don't Panic, also a Claire vid (spoilers through 1x17).

I haven't actively been looking for Heroes vids or fic, so I may have missed a lot of stuff. Anyone else have recs?

This community is excellent at critiquing the problems of the show, whether episode-by-episode, in terms of character arcs and plot developments, or using statistics. There's also starting to be some really amazing organizing to get these critiques to the writers and producers. Given that, I wanted to use this space to ask: what would be GOOD things to have happen in future episodes? What do you want to see? How should characters be used to their full potential, problems be addressed, etc? I know people often express their wishes-for-the-future in comments, but let's try to collect some of them in one place.

my wish listCollapse )

A Call to Action

Tags: ,

After considerable discussion this past week, and in coordination with ktempest's Save Heroes efforts, I've posted a
call to action for leveraging the access to NBC we've been given and the strike-hiatus to urge improvements in the writing of POCs, ethnic minorities, and women on Heroes.

I know you care about the show or you wouldn't be here. Please consider participating. I'm tired of being ashamed of loving this show.

Save Heroes

current mood: busy

A few folks think it's worth attempting to get our opinions on Heroes to the creator in the hopes that the show will get better.  To that end, I created Save Heroes, the site of a collaborative critique of Heroes Volume 2.  Everyone who has an opinion is invited to add to it, either by posting your thoughts in comments or linking to an existing blog post.

A few discussions going on right now.

current mood: contemplative
current song: Louis Prima- Buona Sera

technosage and I were talking about the race problems while she was writing up her Heroes Alphabet for 2x08 (contains spoilers for, umm, 2x08)

This led to me making two posts, the first one was funny About how Latin America was a big place

Then I got serious and wrote down Why Maya and Alejandro's storyline makes me uncomfortable (contains spoilers up to 2x08 and a link with spoilers for future eps)

technosage linked it and a lot of discussion started. (also contains spoilers up to 2x08)

She then posted What to do? An open letter to Heroes fandom in order to discuss how to best get our opinions to Kring and TPTB themselves.

Further not taking it
by K Tempest Bradford (ktempest)

current mood: angry

(crossposted to my LJ and to deadbro)
So, it looks like I'm not the only one who is feeling the rage about Heroes at this time.  (No spoilers to follow, as this post is not about an episode.)  Every time I see a post on the intarwebs about the show it's full of people being annoyed, angry, upset, or murderous.  They hate the plot, they hate the characters, they hate the racism, they hate the sexism.

Tim Kring has intimated that he knows the show isn't working.  But of the many things he mentioned that he was doing wrong, he completely left out the whole bit where his show is engaging in some racist and sexist crap.  Maybe he doesn't know.  Maybe he didn't want to say.  But considering the fact that he can't move forward with the show for a little while, I think we need to take advantage and deliver a message to Tim Kring that he can't ignore.

I think we need to write an open letter.  Not just some snarky blog post wherein we say: OMG we hate you!  (though I love those posts)  I think we, as a fandom, need to collectively catalogue why the show isn't working and what specific aspects are making us froth.  I'm talking a deep criticism, possibly with footnotes, that we collectively write (to a degree) and then sign off on, petition-style (but without the petition).

And further, this needs to find its way into the hands of Mr. Kring himself.  I think I know how to get this done, but I won't mention particulars just yet.  Still, I want people to contribute to this with the thought that Tim will actually see and read it.

What do you think, fans of Heroes?  Do we make a bid to ensure that a show we love never makes us feel stabby again?  Do we think it's worth saving?

Tim Kring apologizes for this season of Heroes thus far.

Spoilers in that link through the episode that just aired, and very vague spoilers for future episodes this season.

Spoilers through Monday's episode of HeroesCollapse )

Do you guys think the changes he's talking about bode well? I wouldn't mind some faster-paced storytelling. The latest episode was the best all season, in my opinion.

I did a general/thematic post here, which is mostly about lines and crossing them, and takes some time out to rant about the gender issues in last night's ep.

But now I want to talk about race.Collapse )
