If you're familiar with the biblical Book of Ruth, and especially if you love Firefly, Ruth on a Firefly by [livejournal.com profile] kassrachel is a wonder. It's exactly what it sounds like - the story of Ruth and Naomi leaving for Judah, but in this version Judah's a planet, and they're headed there on Serenity. Such a gorgeous retelling of that tale, and the crew of the Serenity are so perfectly captured that it made me long for more of that show!

Story!  
[livejournal.com profile] mmmchelle emailed me the most awesome gift today - a belated birthday fic, in which canon John and Rodney gain a glimpse of their Iowa selves. It's absolutely freaking adorable! And it does such a marvelous job of exploring what canon John would think of the self that took a different path from McMurdo. eeeee! ♥

Things of Great Win  
1. [livejournal.com profile] ciderpress is hosting the first Asian Women Blog Festival - full details [here].

This carnival is intended to focus on Asian women. The definition of Asian, within the scope of this carnival, includes people from East Asia, Central Asia, South Asia, North Asia, South-East Asia, Far East, Middle East, Near East and people of Asian descent living in non-Asian countries. The definition of women, within the scope of this carnival, includes transwomen and cisgendered women.

For the first edition, which I will be hosting at [livejournal.com profile] yennenga thanks to [livejournal.com profile] delux_vivens's kind offer, there is no specific theme. I would like to highlight the diversity of Asian women and topics regarding identity in Asian majority and Asian minority cultures. Submissions can range from feminism, representation, culture, history, work, activism, beauty, health, sexuality, politics, economics, philosophy, class, education, religion, how we identify and relate to other PoC groups, personal stories etc. . . . All types of work, such as essays, prose, poems, personal narratives are accepted.


\o/!

2. To anyone who isn't already watching, let me recommend [The United States of Tara], a show that's been airing on Showtime in the US. Written by Diablo Cody (who wrote Juno), it's a half-hour, weekly show that follows the life of Tara, her multiple personalities (Buck, Alice, and T), and her extended network of family and friends.

It's fantastic. Tara's situation isn't treated as some freak sideshow, but rather as an integral part of who she is - although there are, of course, people who think she's faking, and people who don't understand how her multiple personalities work. It's wry, sometimes a little heartbreaking, often funny, and at the heart of everything, it's a love story - her relationship with her husband, Max (played by John Corbett) is complicated and warm and fraught and everything any relationship would be after fifteen years.

It's also a wonderful meditation on what gender is and means to this one woman and her extended network. Alice, one of Tara's alters, is a man-pleasing 50's style housewife; T is a 16 year old girl who thinks mostly with her hormones; and Buck is a guy who served in Vietnam. Each of the alters offers something in the way of survival to Tara, while also existing as a fully formed person in their own right. In between is Tara trying to figure out who she is, and who she wants to be.

Oh, and Tara is played by Toni Collette. She is fricking amazing.

[The New Yorker's review of the show, if you're interested.]

[This video] makes me happy all over - it's the opening credits to SGA, reworked in the style of the opening credits to House. It's brilliant. I can't stop replaying . . .
