- elf: My head can’t tolerate this bobbing and pretending
This is what “society” is: people considering whether their words/actions will bother someone else before committing them. Sometimes, they consider it because they care about those people’s feelings; sometimes, they consider it because they don’t want the potential backlash.
The freedom to *not* specifically consider the consequences, to believe there will be no negative backlash, involves either (1) a close-knit community working from the same social standards or (2) being able to avoid those consequences, through personal power or running away really fast. And if you thought journal fandom, fic fandom, slash fandom, was in that first category? YOU WERE WRONG.

“My roommate’s a sex-crazed exhibitionist with a food phobia,” Nyota told her. “You have got to reassign me.”
Maza didn’t react. She regarded Nyota for a moment with a coolly appraising gaze that seemed designed to silently communicate that she hadn’t just seen everything, she’d seen everything plus some other shit as well, and therefore any attempt to shock a reaction out of her was doomed at the outset.
- ever_obsessed: fic: run into the bright lights (janice rand, xi)
Janice Rand would have been raised in Michigan, the daughter of a Starfleet engineer and a stay-at-home father.
She would have gone to Starfleet because nothing seemed better at the time and would have stayed because she would come to love her work.
She would have met James Tiberius Kirk at the age of thirty-four and transferred off of the Enterprise within one year.
