This wasn't quite an appropriate response for the Tumblr conversation I saw so I'm putting it here because there is something here I've been trying to figure out how to say for awhile. Context is that people were saying John Reese from Person of Interest is not depicted as having PTSD. I strenuously disagree.

I’ve been planning this meta about historical accuracy and treatment of women in depictions of history for awhile now and talking about writing it for almost as long. Part of the wait is me struggling to figure out how to phrase things so that I don’t sound dismissive of sexual assault. To be very clear, sex where any party has not freely given consent is never okay. I recently read The Paladin by CJ Cherryh and it gave me the answer in the form of what I would rather see. It’s not perfect by any means but it comes closer than most of what I’ve seen and read.

I play games for escapism and improving my spatial reasoning and eye-hand coordination. What follows is a lot about why one game doesn't give me an escape from homophobia, misogyny, transphobia, and the general skeeviness of gamer dudes.

For the purposes of clarity, I am writing this as a neuroatypical person with social deficits. Most of my social problems come from having difficulty discerning nonverbal social cues with a few differences coming from not experiencing social contact and emotional intimacy normatively. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the way people interact with each other emotionally and how one kind of interaction will affect other kinds of interaction because what’s a straight line of emotional logic to me, isn’t necessarily clear to other people and vice versa.

With that in mind, I’m writing this essay about Cara Mason and how I perceive her because it bothers me when people call her emotionless. Some of the reasons it disturbs me relate to my disability and my reasons for disagreeing are definitely rooted in my experiences as someone who does not process emotions in a way others can always recognize. I don’t think my view of her is definitive or trumps people who do see her as severely out of touch with her emotions. I don’t think Cara has anything diagnostically wrong with her except for PTSD.

Trigger warning for everything you’d expect from talking about Mord’Sith

So I now have a Tumblr account: haecceityofanelf.

I'm still undecided on how active I'm going to be with posting meta but a post has been making me think. Not linking back in case I decide to seriously respond. The blog post was a picspam that compared the relationship between Moriarty and Sherlock in Elementary to the relationship between Sherlock and Watson in BBC's Sherlock which focused on the abusive nature of those relationships. I've never watched Elementary and I haven't seen Season 3 of Sherlock so I have no comment on that. But some of the comments about abuse are... uncomfortable.

I had a TVD meta partly typed out but it was eaten. So while I'm trying to figure out how to say what I want to about TVD and what I feel the weaknesses of S3 and S4 were, I'm going to ramble on characterization and AUs. Because I love AUs with a passion that is probably unholy.

This will have spoilers for Amber, The Vampire Diaries, and Legend of the Seeker.

Ok, I’ve finally finished this. It’s taken me a long time because I want to get this right or as right as I can. This is an upsetting subject and I recognize that. I know some people will disagree with me and I said I’d explain my position more thoroughly and I meant that.

I was trying to write a comparison between Season 2 of Legend of the Seeker and Seasons 4 and 5 of Supernatural but then I realized they have a major similarity I need to discuss before I can order my thoughts on how they’re different.

This is the collision of a few different ideas so I'm not quite sure from which direction to begin. I think in webs, not chains so this might not be very coherent and I apologize if that's the case.
