Re: Your favourite character partnerships Just finished The Alloy of Law and Wax and Wayne are absolutely great. At least as great as Locke and Jean.

A Thank You to the Forum No, this isn't some sappy goodbye, hello, or what have you. I just wanted to say how truly grateful I am at the amount of good cheer, respect, and leniency this community has, especially in the forum.

I've been a member of FF for almost two years. This was the first forum I ever joined, so when I heard that they were lax, unlike a lot of other forums, I shrugged it off as mere words. But over time, I've visited other forums, and found that this place is amazing.

We've been accused of having a "clique" at one point, but man, some other forums are so indifferent to new members, so impersonal and clique-ish. At least when newbies introduce themselves, we have the decency to address them by their names. Some places say "hi hi, glad to have you, k bye," to a big group of people. We throw in jokes, for crying out loud. And these discussions that can delve into a bit of heat? That's called being rude. That's mean. That's wrong. You point out a flaw, you're not following the rules.

And by God, if you don't adhere to the topic word for word, (heaven forbid you jump on a tangent) then all hell will break loose. It's maddening.

On top of that, places that receive 100+ members at one time are more cluttered than my garbage can. The forum is hard to navigate, there's no structure to things, and no "read unread posts since last visit" button. (Really, that's a godsend.)

Sometimes, I don't think I realize how great this place is.

Anyway, I just want to say I'm glad to have a place that's relaxing, that respects everyone's opinion, but doesn't go crazy saying an opinion is sacred. I'm glad that we revel in our love of the genre, that we allow new ideas to flourish and grow, and that we're lax, that we allow some insanity. Thank you, Fantasy-Faction. Thank you.

Re: Women Write Fantasy (The Giant 'Women in Fantasy' Database) Ok, I'll jump.

I think I'm a feminist, in the sense that every person should be one: I want equality between the sexes because I don't believe they are different in core. Same pay, same opportunities, no limits for either.

And because of this, I never pay attention to whether a person is a man or a woman, in all situations in which that doesn't matter - and that is in everything but looking around for a person to love (since I'm not bi hehe)
And because of this, I don't really care if the books I read are written by men or women, they just have to be good enough for me to like them.

So maybe because of this, maybe because I have lived my whole life assuming the above is true for everyone, and all the people I've interacted with think the same (at least they never gave me any indication otherwise), I don't really like these discussions of "You're a bad person because you read more from male authors", "women authors are always victims", etc. The exact same way you can't group all male authors in one group (there are some I love, others I can't stand), you can't group all female authors together: again, there are some great ones and others who can't write as well. I want to read good books, and I don't care who writes them.

Of course, logic would say that the good ones get published and the bad ones don't, but that doesn't happen in real life ('50 shades' anyone?), and my point is that this also happens with male authors. There are a huge number of great male writers who can't get a deal, the same way that there are a huge number of great female writers who can't get a deal. Waterstones also includes really bad male writers in their promotion tables, together with great male ones, great female ones, and bad female ones.

So yes, I get annoyed when people bring in sex/genre as a reason for something that's not directly linked.

And then again, maybe I'm just a very lucky naive person....
