“Why is femslash the smallest genre in the world of fanfiction? Why is femslash the most underrepresented relationship type by a sizeable margin? More importantly, why is it that almost all femslash writers are queer women? Male slash pairings are written by straight women, queer women, and even some men (I say “even” because men are rarer than a two dollar bill in the world of fanfiction) and they’re read by a mostly female audience. Femslash has a completely different ideology, because it’s almost exclusively written and consumed by the community it portrays. Unlike a straight girl writing about two boys having sex (and I guarantee that they’re two conventionally attractive white boys whose female love interests have been deemed either worthy of death or asexual by the fandom), femslash is written by those whose identities and personal narratives are reflected in the stories themselves. Maybe the writer of that erotic scene hasn’t had sex with a girl yet, but damn, she has thought about it a lot. That queer author writes two girls falling in love even if they’re straight in the original work because two girls falling in love means something to her and to so many people like her, and it’s important that she sees herself in a piece of media whose canon forgets she exists. One of the great frustrations of LGBTQ media is the fact that so little of our representations end up coming from LGBTQ-identified creators, and thus we see inaccurate portrayals with limited diversity. Femslash exists because we were sick of being told we didn’t exist, so we wrote ourselves into their stories.”
— excerpt from a very long piece I’ve been working on for autostraddle about femslash and why there’s so little of it (and why we need to make more of it NOW)

to scratch your Sansa/Margaery au itch

roseroadkingsroad:

so I heard some of you like Sansa/Margaery AUs

and making lists helps me de-stress, so I decided to put this one together (comprehensively, I just threw any AU with a major trope on there)

let’s start your basic fluffy tropes: coffeeshop AUs are pretty popular, there’s also a flowershop AUdance class AURenaissance Fair AU, an I’m with the band AU, and an "uh oh, my roommate is HOT" AU.

keep it classy with a Gossip Girl AU ~

oh, so you like supernatural powers and shit? Better check out this Harry Potter AUHP/historical AU, or other AUs featuring magicmermaids, and selkies. Don’t forget this MCU crossover with Sansa as Captain America and Margaery as Black Widow (not exactly shippy, but still very cool). 

or for something a little more dangerous… try a Bonnie & Clyde AU, girl gang AUspies & assassins AU, organized crime/mob families AU (part of a larger series), girls with guns AUdemon AU, zombie apocalypse AU, or this kickass dystopian AU.

and now for some Americana: have a small town AU, an American politics AU, and a new-bad-girl-in-town AU. If you’ve got wanderlust, try this road trip AU, a driving-with-the-windows-down AUroadside hookers AU, or this camping AU

want something a little more seasonal because you know winter is coming? here’s a Halloween fic, two home for the holidays AUs, a very long Love Actually AU, or some shorter pieces featuring Christmas partiesmistletoe, sledding, and getting snowed in. That’s not to mention an entire series about holiday hookups, because Sansa/Margaery is the gift that just keeps on giving.

feeling domestic? here’s a we’re-getting-married AU, a wedding dress shopping AU, a married with kids/flashback AU, and a married (with a white picket fence) AU

period pieces are my weakness - yours too? have a 14th century War of the Roses AU, a 1900s/Titanic AU, a ~1910s women’s suffrage AU, a 1920s AU, a 1940s WWII AU, a 1960s AU, and an AU partly set in the ’90s

or if you want to get down and dirty, there’s like an entire subgenre devoted to making out at parties. You could also check out some smutty fic featuring strap-ons (x) (x), light bondagesongfic, Skype sex, drive-ins, one-sided roleplay, getting caught in the rain, and more. Or some first kiss fic if you wanna keep it PG. 

oh jk you wanted to be sad - then look no further than the saddest Sansamarg AU you will ever read, or what I like to think of as queer Pretty Little Liars with the gay dial turned all the way up (and here’s another sad Dany OT3 fic with a similar vibe). You can also grab your Kleenex for the breakup AU, the sad reunion AU, the what-could-have-been AU, the tragic accident AU, and the crying on the kitchen floor AU

and there are plenty of high school AUs to go around - including a prom AU that might make you cry, a cheerleading camp AU (x) (x), an everybody-is-gay AU, a Faking It AU, and two high school teacher AUs (x) (x). 

let’s not forget the college AUs either ~

these are mostly from AO3 so message me if there’s anything I missed!

People think that Fleur and Hermione are polar opposites when, in fact, theyre not.

Their interests and hobbies, those things are different. Where Hermione buries herself in her books, Fleur buries herself in her looks. Because its what theyve always been good at, its how they feel safe.

Booms, homework, logic thats Hermione’s way of disconnecting with the world because, sometimes, all the loudness and commotion is too much for her. Books, for her, is a way to feel secure and dodge back into a world where all the information is there contained in pages.

In the same sense, this is how Fleur feels about her looks, beauty and femininity. The world, its too loud for her too, and so she wakes up everyday and she puts on her mask; a perfect smile, smooth silky hair, thats how she feels safe. Because she knows that this is what she is good at, its her domain in the same way where Hermione’s domain are books.

So when people ask if i like fleurmione because “opposites attract”, thats a hard question. Fleur and Hermione aren’t all that different and theres so much that they could have learned from each other in the books. Theres so much growth that couldve happened.

(we could of had it alllllll, if only Rowling believed in strong supporting female relationships)

And at the end of the day, neither would judge the the other for retreating into her world, because both know how overwhelming it is to exist in a place where so much expectations are put on them.
