Essay: “You’ll Accept Us”: The Younger, Other Avengers. "You'll Accept Us": The Younger, Other Avengers
by Todd Harper.
It's an essay dealing with Young Avengers from a queer point of view. I thought it was quite interesting, and maybe appropriate for this asylum? I know it's not a fanwork as such, but it does deal with both slash and the Young Avengers...
Excerpt: In discussing his own heroic origins with Jessica Jones, Teddy makes the observation that people can be typical or average, but never normal, because everyone is unique, thus rendering “normal” a useless term. But that characterizes the movement of the naturally powered characters compared to their non-powered peers. Billy, Teddy, and Tommy are constantly moving toward a perceived norm from their starting position of disadvantage, and there’s always something to trip them up: a selfish and exploitative friend, a proto-hominid bully, the fact that you accidentally blew up a schoolbuilding (I mean, look what that did for the New Warriors)… something ready to boomerang them back into Otherness.

ADMIN: Rules ya_slash
is for slash fic, fanart, icons, etc. based on Young Avengers.
- Use headers on your fic, fanart, and icon postings, even if you're just posting a link to a story or something. Usually a title (if you have one), author, warnings (if there are any) and pairing can suffice, but you can add in your email address, website, authors notes, and file size (for images) if you want.
- Place large images, artwork, and fic behind an lj-cut tag, with the headers outside of the cut-tag.
