WHY THIS WOMAN WOULD RATHER READ HARRY POTTER EROTICA THAN WATCH PORN

When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.” 

Watch her full monologue here.

I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.

And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.

I like sex with context. I like sex when it involves fully fleshed out characters. I like the backstories. I like feeling like these people do other things when they aren’t having sex.

Reblebbing for Rosalarian’s comment and to say this: I was actually embarrassed about my Smut Peddler submission for a while, because it featured two people who had backstories and were enthusiastic about sex. Because sex within context rather than BANGIN OUTA NOWHERE is a “feminine preference” and therefore “not real porn” and ugh fuck that mentality, fuck all of it forever

Strong language, but she makes a very good point. :)

Important read on depression by Erika Moen.

Looks like *someone* just remembered he left the iron on…

I know a lot of creative people and perhaps by correlation I know a lot of people who struggle with depression. They have told me (and they’ve told the world) how depression sits there, implacable, and drains the color out of the world until no success or joy matters. I believe them, and it becomes increasingly evident that no matter who you are or what you’ve achieved, that depression is a good liar and can make you believe none of it matters.
 
I know and love too many people with depression to believe that it’s something that’s shameful to talk about or to acknowledge. I want them alive and I want them here with us. If you have depression I want you alive and here with us. Don’t let the moment take you. Don’t be afraid to get help. The people who love you want you here. Believe it.

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

This is soooooo true!

Good stuff here for both artists and writers. :)

Okay, so hopefully this will be the final update. :)

Since yesterday evening, I have had private email conversations with Mr. Queen.  He’s personally apologized to me, and I’ve accepted it.  He is also withdrawing the DMCA takedown complaints against this blog.

As of this post’s writing, Tumblr has not yet restored the content, but I am hoping that they will soon.  I am also checking with them that the now-retracted DMCA complaints will not be counted against Escher Girls or the Tumblr users who submitted content to Escher Girls that was removed.

I consider this situation resolved with the restoration of the removed content, and I wish Mr. Queen well. :)

If you spread around the initial controversy, please spread this around too.

If you are a media outlet that has been covering this situation, please update the story with these new details.

I know, sometimes that the controversy gets a lot of play but people miss the retraction/resolution, and I don’t want that to happen here.

As a sidenote, I discovered today that Tumblr did send me an email explaining what happened about the apparent removal of my post about the initial DMCA takedown requests.  The email was eaten by my spam filter.

According to the email, Tumblr processed the DMCA takedown against that post and removed it by accident.  They restored the post shortly after, but I assume in the process, all the reblogs were lost.

I hope that clears up something that people had been wondering about. :)

Thank you everybody so much for your support and help during this stressful time, it’s been overwhelming and I feel really touched <3

And again, I want to specifically thank Ken White at Popehat and my amazing lawyer, Kate Andrews for all of their help.  Without both of them, I would have been so lost.

Hopefully this is the last time I will be addressing this situation, and we can all put it in the past and move on.  :)
