    Summary

    Joss Whedon's series Dollhouse ended on Friday, January 29, 2010. Joss Whedon is a fascinating writer - because he likes to examine the uses and abuses of power. In Dollhouse - he poses the question - what happens if someone can literally program or deprogram the human mind much as they might a computer - so that human bodies become avatars, blank slates until a personality or program is downloaded into them. Sort of a dark twist on Cameron's AVATAR concept - where the male hero gets to walk again due to being downloaded into a human/alien AVATAR body and save the world. Here, the results are far more horrific and the issues far less simple. Where Cameron's film tends to be a mindless, albeit tightly plotted, thrill ride, with some feel-good moments (depending on who you are) and a happy ending, Whedon's tv series is a creepy exploration into the abuses of power, identity, and self-empowerment and not least of all trust.

    Summary

    This essay comes from a blog post on https://shadowkat.dreamwidth.org/486729.html. It is about how Joss Whedon and his writing team handled the characterization of vampires in their series, post Angel. Angel was a vampire cursed with a soul, who was ambivalently good ensouled, and completely evil without a soul. The soul acted as a sort of conscience. But, this posed a problem when other vampires were introduced. In addition, it posed a problem in regards to Angel's relationship with Buffy - since pure happiness rendered him evil. The essay explores how this was handled in the series -- and how similar writing traps can be be worked around.

    Summary

    ‘And I forgive you. Of course I forgive you.’ The way Dean had said it… it was a plea. Dean hadn’t cared about keeping up pretences then. Castiel can only imagine how this took him back to the time where he convinced himself that he left Castiel behind. Dean hadn’t looked for the flower, or rushed back to save Sam… Dean stayed, roamed through the forest with panic flowing through his veins.

    His powers are waning, but Dean’s longing had reached him just fine. He heard every shuddering breath, felt every tear fall like a stab to the heart and held every word that came from his lips like a precious gem.

    He doesn’t want to do this to Dean. He doesn’t want to do this to Sam.

    But in the heat of the moment, he rolls the dice with fate.

    Between the of the two of them… Castiel knows clearly who his choice should be.  He tosses the sphere to Sam.

    ...

    We all know why Sam couldn't destroy the sphere. But what we don't know is: Why didn't Dean grab the sphere and smash it? Why didn't Cass tell him to do it since he already knows what needs to be done? Read on to find out.

    Summary

    What happens when an idealized manhwa hero comes to life, and one of his creators falls in love with him? Who is writing their story, and who has the power to make it a happy ending?

    Oh Yeon Joo is on a leave of absence from her work as a thoracic surgeon after a traumatic failed surgery. Her concerns about her manhwa creator father's mental health lead her to spending time in his studio, only to get caught up in a wild adventure. Her involvement in creating his main character seems to have given her a strange power when that hero, Kang Chul, comes to life...

     

    A retelling of W: Two Worlds with altered elements to give Oh Yeon Joo more agency, Kang Chul more depth, and their romance more slow-burn intensity (and more time somewhere between contract relationship and true love). Could be read by non-watchers of the drama!

    New chapters up every Tuesday after first appearing Thursdays on @bygosscarmine at Tumblr: audio/podcast versions on there as well, with other moodboard/visual stuff!
