zombee replied to your post “Quick I need long fic recs I’m going to be spending a lot of time on…”do you read asoiaf fic at all because lit_chick08 is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
Not usually? I was into the books for a while but I dropped them really fast when GRRM started talking about how totally white and not black (???) the Dornish were to cover the GoT showrunners’ asses on their casting Pedro Pascal as Oberyn.
I’M NOT ALONE IN MY DORNISH FEELINGS! I thought they were North African from reading the books, but I guess….not….
I swear the showrunners keep having opportunities to make the show more diverse and go, “NOPE. MOAR WHITE PEOPLE.” (Alayaya?!)
Yeah, like GRRM clearly used some nonwhite cultures as inspiration in creating Dorne and the Dornish are super racialized in-text, so when he did that I was really disappointed. fatpinkcast has written a lot about it a lot more intelligently than I can, you should check them out.
Ugh I know, GRRM is still shit for representation but he’s better than most popular writers and if he just KEPT HIS GODDAMN MOUTH SHUT we would continue to think he was actually trying to do good things. I think it’s kind of a Daine thing with him, though—even though it seems Tammy herself didn’t think about the fact Daine was mixed race until just recently (the way she worded that response made it seem to me like she hadn’t thought about it before), it doesn’t matter, because canon’s canon and Daine’s da is brown, period. She’d be mixed race because that’s what’s on the page, and Dorne is Northern African influence because that’s what’s on the page.
Anyway if you ever do pick up the books again lol, look up lit_chick08 because their fic is the best shit I’ve read all year.
How about Captain America? I can recommend two fantastic Sam x Steve fics, one finished and one in progress.
