"Prince Lindworm" by Danielle Storey

To summarize, a childless Queen is approached by a wandering crone who offers to remedy her troubles with simple instructions. First the Queen is required to take a two handled cup and bury it on its head in her garden. The following morning, she must retrieve the forsaken cup and uncover two roses from the inside, one white, the other red. If she chooses to eat the white rose, she will give birth to a girl, if red, a boy. But under no condition should she eat both, otherwise grave, unforeseen penalties will ensue. However, at the moment of consumption, the Queen was struck by indecision and ate both. She was pregnant with a boy, as promised. But while in labor, she gave life to another entity as well…a lindworm, a hideous reptilian creature. She kept her grotesque bane of a child a secret for many years, but as he came of age, he could no longer tolerate confinement. One day as the Queen’s healthy son prepared to embark to faraway lands in search of a bride, the lindworm slithered across his path declaring, “I am the eldest, I am to be married first”. Every Princess foolishly coaxed into marrying the serpent was devoured on her wedding night. The situation of the kingdom grew desperate as the lindworm gained a notorious reputation for murdering his wives. A farmer’s young daughter was given up out of destitution to be the reptile’s latest sacrifice. Wallowing in disgust and fear for her predictable fate, the girl was approached by the same crone that aided the Queen. She gave her a blood-curdling list of responsibilities for the night of the wedding. The procedure involved the stripping of the lindworm’s multiple skins, whipping his bare flesh and bathing the wounds with milk. The bride did so, grudgingly, and managed to release the spell that imprisoned the prince in the body of a lindworm.

Aisha Tyler Speaks Out About Fan Wank After Supernatural Nerd HQ Panel

deanplease:

brotherslovershunters:

"Some people on the internet have been saying some pretty ridiculous things about the Supernatural panel I moderated at Nerd HQ at SDCC this past weekend (which by and large was a massive hit and a highlight of my con, personally). As is widely known, I am a huge Supernatural fan and am lucky enough to be friends with a large part of the cast, who are all kind, giving, great guys dedicated to their families, their fans, and their show.

I like guys. My podcast is called Girl on Guy. I was raised by a single father. I am a standup comedian and spend a large portion of my social and work time around men. Many of my closest friends are men. I am curious about them. I enjoy their company. I do not apologize for that. I am also a feminist and a dedicated supporter of the LGBTQQIAAP community. I will not apologize for the things I said during the panel, and I do not take them back.

Occasionally sociocultural dedication and vigilance can decay into wild-eyed hysteria. This is one of those times.

a) The joke about Misha was not transphobic. I am a HUGE supporter of the LGBTQQIAAP community and put my body and my money where my mouth is constantly for gay and trans rights and marriage equality. That is public record and indisputable. The comment was a joke. You can take it however you would like but that is not how it was intentioned. And for the record, that is not how it was taken by Misha, who was and remains a very good friend of mine.

b) Jared and Jensen are not misogynists. This is bullshit on its face. The show focuses on the relationship between these two brothers with a very unique provenance and a very unique set of circumstances. I disagree vigorously that there aren’t strong women on Supernatural: Felicia Day, Genevieve Padalecki, Kim Rhodes, Amanda Tapping and Alaina Huffman, among others, would agree they are not wimps.

But Supernatural is not about male-female relationships. The show is about two brothers trying to prevent the apocalypse, and how that rends and repairs their relationship with themselves and each other. If you want a show about relationships, or about women, complex, self-actualized female characters ABOUND elsewhere — Scandal, Penny Dreadful, Girls, Homeland, The Americans, Gray’s Anatomy, Vikings (Lagertha Lothbrok is OUT OF CONTROL — I want to have her babies) — this is but a meager and partial list.

TV is finally becoming a great place for women. Not perfect, I , but better.

c) the show is a show about men. If you don’t like that, watch another show. If you are a fan, you are a fan, and you enjoy the elements of the show you find satisfying. If the show is not creatively satisfying to you, watch another show. If you think it’s misogynistic, WATCH ANOTHER SHOW. If you are pissed at Supernatural or its writers or it’s actors, WATCH ANOTHER FREAKING SHOW. The idea that women don’t watch the show because they are drawn in by these male characters and their interplay is bullish*t. That is why you’re watching, or at least part of it. If it wasn’t, YOU WOULD BE WATCHING ANOTHER FREAKING SHOW.

c) Not every show can be everything to everyone. Period. Art must exist for art’s own sake, not to satisfy someone else’s cultural agenda. You can criticize the show, and you can criticize me, as is your right, of course. I can take it. Go nuts.

In art, as in America, everyone is entitled to be wrong.”

sherlock holmes and john watson are beloved, iconic characters whose relationship (written in a time when it could not have been openly queer) was so intimate that the possible queer subtext has been being discussed for decades, and yet the possibility of their romantic involvement has never been textually explored on screen up to this point because it either hasn’t been allowed or hasn’t been socially acceptable to do so

there are queer people who have stated that it would be important to them personally to see sherlock holmes and john watson finally allowed to be in a textually queer relationship on screen

there are queer people who have stated that it would be important to them personally to see a queer romance given the same kind of slow-build treatment that heterosexual romances are often given but which queer stories are often denied

there are queer people who have stated that it would be important to them personally for the show to upset the notion that any character who hasn’t stated their sexual orientation can be assumed to be heterosexual by default

for this to actually happen on television in a popular show with such iconic characters would in fact be progressive and would in fact have a positive cultural impact and to pretend otherwise by accusing people who want it of fetishizing, of pretending that shipping is activism, or of not being queer enough is frankly repulsive

if it doesn’t mean anything to you, fine, but don’t sit there telling other people that the representation that they want isn’t valid because it didn’t get your own personal queer stamp of approval

oh, but i guess i don’t know why you’d listen to me; i’m just a bisexual woman who married a person of a different gender so i probably don’t count as being a “real” queer person

I am a srs adult that just left a srs fancy dinner wearing lipstick and nice undies and the first thing I do when I leave is write gay porn

I just got back from an all day class learning how to give trauma medicine to people whose legs get blown off, including shouting at them to tourniquet themselves so I don’t get blown up or shot too. And I came home and drank 3 glasses of sangria and wrote gay incestuous porn.

It’s a good thing.

I just spent the day editing a YA novel for one of my clients. And when I was done, I wrote incestuous gay porn.

After I finish writing some regular gay porn, I’m outlining my second original novel of incestuous gay porn. 

Because you can never have too much, amirite?
