And now the hand-off...

Gah. Need more sleep.

Before I go to take a nap, let me throw some stuff at you guys.

1. goldenusagi continues to be awesome and has done some more macros for my feminist Checkpoint rewrite. It's lulz-worthy, so go look!

2. Also, gillo's wanting to try out some B/A fics, so I thought I'd post some links to the B/A side of fandom. I'm afraid I don't have any individual fic recs as I haven't run across a B/A fic that rocked my boat enough to bookmark. But these links will take you to oodles of well-written Bangel fics that you can check out.

- chrisleeoctaves has a tag devoted to fic recs. She recs some other pairings sometimes, but it's mostly B/A.

- B/A fandom has the IWRY ficathon and the archive for it is here. Bundles of oodles of B/A fics. Also, the top-level domain, Octaves of the Heart has a variety of different fanfic archives (again, containing a lot of B/A).

- Ducks' Fanfic is an author site with mostly B/A. Again, oodles of stories.

Hope that helps!

Oh, and the B/A shippers feel just as persecuted and oppressed as the B/S shippers.

Um, not to be stuck up or something, but... Why? *scratches head* From my experience on the Internet at large, I was under the impression that shipping B/A was considered to be much more acceptable. (At least, B/A shippers aren't regularly accused of being rapist lovers and dangers to society. Ah, how I love being a proponent of the most controversial pairing in canon.) Although, this could be the old persecution complex rearing it's head ;)

Well, there's two elements.

One, is that, of course, they show broke Buffy and Angel up in S3 and allowed them to move on (and have sex) with other people. For some, this is a form of Joss-torture.

More reasonable, however, are the complaints of Bangel-shippers' treatment by fandom where they, apparently, are often dismissed as immature, pre-teen types with poor/boring taste or deluded in rooting for a ship that's stupid/over/lame or whatnot.

I don't know how it compares to reaction in fandom to the Spuffy shippers as, frankly, I'm more apt to notice people being douche-y towards Spuffy.

Well, not that anyone enjoys having their ship dissed (or being personally insulted because of said ship), but I have to say, I'd much rather be called immature than a rapist lover.

Definitely agreed.

Yeah, I guessed this. But still, that's all just a matter of taste. (And super word to eowyn's comment below.) As for the other reason, I'm inclined to say 'OH WOE' and maybe break a window or something :)
