A couple of weeks ago I went to see Wonder Woman. I cried three times during it. The scene of the Amazons defending their island, the scene of Diana crossing the battlefied... I did not expect to be so moved but there I was, crying, because 'I've never seen...' and 'finally' and the entirely unexpected emotional impact of that. I've been brutally honest about my reaction as well every male colleague with whom I've gotten to talking about the movie. Because it needs to be said. And because I hope that it helps them understand. Even if just a little bit.

And then today:




I genuinely cried again. Because finally.

And every single whiney fanboy who starts the argument with 'I'm not sexist but...' can take their male privilege and kindly go fuck themselves.

Title:
Reunion
Author: [personal profile] kat_lair / Mistress Kat & [personal profile] pushkin666 
Fandom: The Hobbit
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 1,778
Disclaimer: Not ours, only playing

Summary: When his letters go unanswered, Thorin travels to make his apologies in person. This turns out much better than expected.

Author notes: Largely an exercise in a) self-indulgent fluff, and b) getting the voices in preparation for a longer fic. Expect no literary greatness, only teeth-rotting schmoop.
