Their reasoning was they didn't want to upset their white readers. I know it's "Black History Month" - something I have an issue with, because shouldn't we be integrated enough by now that it's just a part of our history? *sigh* Intellectually I know the history of the Civil Rights Movement. I know the facts, the details, but being confronted with an image of children being sprayed with a fire hose, or a line of National Guardsmen holding Confederate flags... I can't imagine. I just can't imagine.
In other news, I'm horribly stuck with writing, staring at blank pages, huge log-jam in my head. And the longer that writer/concrit meme goes on, the less I give a shit. (SO YOU KNOW! THIS IS SOMEONE I KNOW - BEING SILLY. The other comments are from people I do not know - with the obvious exception of lettered.) Got the person who said I Mary Sue myself into every fic to expound, but honestly - I just don't value their opinion. That may be horrible sounding, but the best thing about free advice? You don't have to take it. There are folks who's opinions carry weight with me, and just hollering out that all of my fics have a sarcastic tone? Sorry. Sounds like a troll to me. Or that every fic sounds like me? Um... I'll just let you guys roll that one around.
If anyone had a lame joke or link, or words of encouragement, or picspam... I'll take any and all today.
