My own feeling is that science fiction, of all the different forms of literature, is the one that most easily accepts the notion of change. Things are changing very quickly, and any kid who thinks about it knows that the world in which he or she will be a grown-up — which he or she will be helping to run — will be considerably different from this one. Maybe better, maybe worse, but different. Science fiction explores the future world.

I think more and more young people are beginning to feel that science fiction is the kind of literature that a person interested in reality should be reading.

- Isaac Asimov

A while back, I asked why it is that some science fiction is so good at predicting the future. Far and away, the most common answer was because people who read science fiction are then inspired to make that future a reality.

Asimov knew that.

Check out more from his 1983 interview with Dr. Julius Strangepork in Muppets magazine (yes, seriously) at Brain Pickings.

“The difference with a single player game is that in the same way you lose yourself in a good novel, you can lose yourself in a single player story. You see it in all these games, where you can fill your house with turnips or decorate your armor with a dragon skull. It lets you go inside for a little while and, well, not hermit up necessarily, but be in another place and time for a while. It is escapism and you can’t really have that when ‘BonerLord247’ goes running past you in the middle of a raid.”

I am a Southern Witch; 
Vast as the fields and the skies of the country,
With just as much love and cruelty and fault and promise.
I sing spells like summertime lullabies, and let the balmy air carry my magic into the night.
I mix potions in mason jars, and enchant brunches with blessings.
My kitchen is an altar; my porch, a church.
Sweet tea is my sacrificial wine, and I dance to hymns under the warm Southern sun.
Here, we keep a crucifix above our doors for protection, and take long draws on our cigarettes for temporary reprieve.
We give good-luck charms to our neighbors, as horseshoes and wildflowers and baskets of muffins. 
We monogram sigils into quilts and tapestries and handkerchiefs.
Here, magic is in the crickets that begin their symphony as the sun sets.
It is is the traditions that each family holds sacred, and passes down like scripture.
It is in the stars and the sun and the dusty winds. 
I am a Southern Witch, 
And my magic is as alive as my home.

I love every aspect of this.

NO you guys don’t understand, the entire book is like this. They tried to cram in all sorts of representation of different races and the art is gorgeous and it’s GREAT! The picture for a spellcaster is a female human who is wearing BAGGY, NON-SEXUALIZED CLOTHING AND NO MAKEUP because she’s in a dungeon, she doesn’t have time to do her hair cmon.

Also this:

You know, this makes D&D more accessible to me. I tried to play. I tried to play with a bunch of white dudes and I just couldn’t. I just couldn’t handle all the male fuckery

OMG ALL THE ABOVE COMMENTARY MAKES ME SO HAPPY

I think about this ALL THE TIME. I fucking love it. 
Fandom is the most brilliant, beautiful, collaborative, critical, deeply subversive stuff there is and I ADORE IT TO PIECES.
And no, it’s not all women—certainly not, absolutely not. But I’d say it’s vast majority women. (…Ridiculous crazy vast majority anybody-except-cis-men.) I know I often think of fandom as a feminine and/or queer-centered space.

I’m reblogging for the added commentary and to add a link to a meta I recently came across. The whole thing is worth a read, but the first paragraph really resonates:

The types of fandom that are most often considered traditional and acceptable, and which are often either male-dominated or coded as masculine, tend to be acquisitive, whether in terms of knowledge (obscure trivia) or merchandise (collectibles). Whereas, by contrast, the types of fandom most often considered insincere, non-serious or “unreal”, and which are often either female-dominated or coded as feminine, tend to be creative, such as making costumes, writing fanfic and drawing fanart. (via fozmeadows)

Fantastic Breasts and Where to Find Them

That second to last panel is chilling.


reblogging again for linzeestyle’s tags, because, OMG, *TRUTH*

#fandom#harry potter#this is the real reason fandom is mocked derided and insulted by creators#because it *can’t* be packaged and resold#because our culture doesn’t know how to sell sex to women outside of the male gaze#and because women have created a community where they don’t need to buy anything to get what they want#and to people whose entire livelihoods#depend on creating and marketing unattainable ‘perfection’ to young women#telling them what sex and sex appeal is#how they should feel about it#and how they should desire it#and what they need to buy to be worth it#our entire economy is based on women being cut into parts and those parts being sexualized#and turned back around and sold to men and women alike#and fandom doesn’t participate#it creates its own economy and there’s no space for that model#that’s terrifying#and the people who used to hold all the cards mock it#because they lost the ‘C&D and shut-down’ alternative


#and because women have created a community where they don’t need to buy anything to get what they want
I think about this ALL THE TIME. I fucking love it. 
Fandom is the most brilliant, beautiful, collaborative, critical, deeply subversive stuff there is and I ADORE IT TO PIECES.
And no, it’s not all women—certainly not, absolutely not. But I’d say it’s vast majority women. (…Ridiculous crazy vast majority anybody-except-cis-men.) I know I often think of fandom as a feminine and/or queer-centered space.

I’m reblogging for the added commentary and to add a link to a meta I recently came across. The whole thing is worth a read, but the first paragraph really resonates:

The types of fandom that are most often considered traditional and acceptable, and which are often either male-dominated or coded as masculine, tend to be acquisitive, whether in terms of knowledge (obscure trivia) or merchandise (collectibles). Whereas, by contrast, the types of fandom most often considered insincere, non-serious or “unreal”, and which are often either female-dominated or coded as feminine, tend to be creative, such as making costumes, writing fanfic and drawing fanart. (via fozmeadows)
