    Lately both Darkrose and I have been writing in a new shared universe. The Kept Verse is set at some nebulous point in the near future and features an America in which slavery is once again legal. We're both looking at how people manage to remain ethical and decent in a world that is neither.

    Tuesday, June 17, 2008

    it's been 3.4 weeks since the last time my fandom showed its ass

    You know, it's bad enough that SGA has skeezy race issues where their two regular alien characters are played by actors of color. But the fact that the majority of the fans don't think that there's a problem is, frankly, part of the problem.

    This time it's the ever fascinating topic of Jason Momoa/Ronon Dex's hair. The story goes like this: when Jason got the part, the producers were a little iffy about his dreads. They went with them for a couple of years and then Jason got tired of trying to play a very physical character with six pounds of hair on his head. And really, who can blame him? So he got permission and cut his hair. A scene where Ronon cut off his dreads was written for an episode set early in the upcoming season and all was good. Oh sure, some fans complained, but Jason and the writers/producers where happy. Sadly, the SciFi channel was not and they axed the loss of the dreads to the tune of a few really painful days after Jason had them sewn back in and then, finally, a $10,000 wig.

    In a conversation--which has since been frozen--elsewhere today, more than one person said they were glad the dreads stayed because they made Ronon look more alien. Actually, the word "non-human" was used.

    I'm sorry, but what?!

    First, there is the plain and simple fact that dreadlocks are worn by a hell of a lot of people here on Earth and have been as long as...well, people have had hair, really. There's nothing alien or non-human about them.

    Secondly, Black people (and other people of color) wear dreadlocks, and like other natural Black hairstyles, it can be a controversial decision to make. People have gotten fired for having dreads--or braids or other "ethnic" hairstyles. And honestly, white people, when was the last time that the desire to wear your hair in a natural white person style was controversial?* So yeah, we're already talking about controversial hair here, hair associated with PoCs.

    Thirdly...oh God, I can't believe that in this day and age I or anyone else has to explain that calling something associated with PoCs "non-human" is offensive. But apparently, it needs to be said. Putting weird ears on people and doing funny things to their eyebrows makes them look non-human. Putting rubber prosthetics on people's foreheads or painting them blue makes them look non-human. Giving a person physical attributes that don't occur on Earth makes them look non-human. Giving them a HUMAN hairstyle does NOT make them look non-human. And when Black people have been called non-human and/or sub-human for centuries and are still being called that, then no, we shouldn't have to say "hey, that's kind of offensive."

    So if you really honestly think that Ronon's hair makes him look non-human, then I have two things to say to you. One: you need to look around and expand your definition of human to include people who have different hair than the white people around you. And two:


    *And yes, I know that maybe a few extreme cuts or very long hair on men can be problematical in the workplace, but the fact is that naturally styled white people hair is rarely controversial the way dreadlocks or braids are. This is a part of white privilege that a lot of us don't even think about.

    Let Your Body Move You -- NC-17 -- John/Rodney -- "But sometimes, when there's time and they have a nice long free evening stretched out ahead of them with no obligations whatsoever, John gets passed around from one of his team to the next, like he's a toy with no other purpose in life but to be played with." by Telesilla

    Site Update 05/07/08

    Wow, I got behind so it's a Hugh Jass update this time around.

    Three stand alone fics by Telesilla:

    Do the Math -- John/Rodney -- rated PG -- What services can Dr. M. Rodney McKay expect from a $5,500 an hour hooker named John?

    Down this Chain of Days -- Rodney/Teyla -- rated NC-17 -- AU. In which Rodney and Teyla work together, play together and Rodney does some problem solving that has nothing to do with physics.

    It's Exactly What You Think It Is -- John/Ronon -- rated NC-17 -- When Dave asks about Ronon yet again, John goes off. ("Outcast" episode tag)

    One remix by Telesilla (now w/ DVD commentary and kung-fu action grip) :

    Sheppard's Choice (the Theory of the Male Gaze remix) -- John/Rodney -- rated PG -- Sheppard suddenly has a female body and Rodney can't stop looking. This is a remix of cupidsbow's fantastic fic Sheppard's Choice. DVD Commentary on my remix.

    A new series by Telesilla:

    A Learning Experience (parts one, two and three of a WIP)-- John/Rodney -- rated NC-17 -- John's mother is a member of a very secret, very private, very exclusive and very kinky sex club and John spends the summer of his sophomore year in college getting to know one of her household slaves, a guy named Rodney. This is also known casually as the "Establishment 'verse."

    And two remixes of Telesilla's fic:

    Five People Rodney McKay Didn't Expect to Miss, but Does (and One Person He Expected to Miss, but Doesn't Any More) has been excellently remixed as Five People John Sheppard Didn't Expect to Miss, But Does(And One Person He Expected To Miss, But Doesn't Anymore: the Role Reversal Remix) by kassrachel for remixredux08.

    Thoughts on SGA ep 4x13 -- "Quarantine"

    I was prepared to hate this episode like a big hating thing that hates, and actually, I liked it more than I expected to. I'mma break it down by couple:

    Rodney & Katie: Frankly, after all that, I wouldn't want to marry him either. Seriously, there are like several people who can handle Rodney and obviously, Katie's not one of them. His team can handle him, Elizabeth could and Zelenka can. Rodney's one of those guys who's a job and I don't think that he's a job Katie wants. I really think the writers came through here; they made me feel bad for both Rodney and Katie at the end there even if the closing door was kinda anvilicious.

    John & Teyla: While I really don't like the whole "should I stay home with the baby?" thing, I think it's valid question for a single mother to have and I really really like that John was the one who came up with an answer. The whole "it happens all the time in movies" thing was great and I just loved him saying that her baby would have a family. Awwww.... Also, nice action hero bit with him climbing the tower.

    Sam & Radek: Pigeons! Because Radek's a geek too! They were cute but I didn't really get any kind of "couple" vibe off them, or even a UST thing on Radek's part. I did love the bit where the jackets came off and Radek was in line to get a nice eyeful of Sam's impressive rack. Also, Radek kicked his usual ass through the whole episode; oh David N. how are you so awesome?! And Sam was good in this too; geeky and also nicely confident in one of her people.

    Ronon & Keller: OMG people, did every scene with them rock hard or what?! Seriously if I said everything I liked about their scenes, I would go on for hours and the end result would be "I liked everything!" They are awesome and made of win together and I hope to hell the writers don't fuck it up the way writers so often do with canon relationships. Also, I do find it really interesting that they gave Keller Rodney's fanon background.

    Also, OMG the exchange between John and Lorne about the C4 just killed me. Lorne's "whaddya want from me" expression and gesture was priceless. It's so cool that they're comfortable with each other because it really does speak volumes for the how well they function as commander and XO.

    So yeah, I enjoyed this ep quite a bit. It wasn't Doppleganger but it was fun and I think it really was a nice ensemble episode, which is always good to see.
