This year I wrote a ReBoot
story for my official assignment:Title: Beyond the ParametersAndrAIa has learned a trick that would amaze even her coders if they knew. She's learned to be *creative*.
It's been a long time since I played with ReBoot
, so it was fun to come back. Even if I ended up with something more introspective than utterly silly, which is the way I usually go for the fandom. (There are still bits which crack me up, because what other fandom will let me throw around phrases like "initialized to zero" with the intent for a payoff in emotions rather than coding practices.)
Then for Yuletide Madness
I made 16 haiku for 16 fandoms. You can see them all here
Some are more associative than others, a couple are meant to be funny, a surprising number of them feature queer women - even the G rated ones. (Yep, I wrote an explicit femslash haiku
.) This last point is probably to do with the fact I wrote three times as many ladies as mens, and that is including among them the genderqueer computer program
I'm also little disappointed with myself, because looking over the characters I wrote poems for, the only CoC are Deeba Resham
, of Un Lun Dun
, and (I like to think) Carmen Sandiego
. I know what happened. I was doing these in a rush - scanning hastily over the prompts for any that caught my eye - and didn't bother either planning ahead or paying attention to previous output. If I do this again I will have to remember that paying attention is important
, because there is no way I can blame this level of exhibited bias on the prompts themselves.
