As some of my followers already know, I regularly integrate comics and comics fandom into my academic research. Next month, I’ll be presenting a paper on female comics fans’ responses to DC’s New 52 at Going Underground?: Gender and Subcultures at Northumbria University.
As a fun supplement to…
Hey, I don’t know how many of my followers are female comic readers, but if you are (and are particularly upset about the New 52), here’s a sweet little survey you can take to help someone else’s research.
✂ Share one of the hardest moments in your life: I think one of the hardest moments of my life occurred last year, when I broke up with my (then) boyfriend of six years. It was really difficult because I still really respected and cared for him as a person, I just didn’t see myself loving him anymore. It was particularly devastating because his family, particularly his mom and dad, cared deeply for me and I felt that I was letting them down by moving on with my life. To this day, it is one of the hardest things I have ever done and I have done many, many difficult things. But I’ve never regretted it.
☹ Share a turnoff: I really don’t like guys who don’t know how to share. Being the oldest of four kids, I’ve never not shared my things. If you steal some of my food, I won’t say anything. I expect the same from you! This only pertains to people I’m dating — I don’t care if you don’t share with me if we’re already not making out all the time or something. ;)
[♡: Make a confession] I’m really stressed right now, and I feel (and know) that it is about nothing, but I can’t shake the anxiety. I wish I knew how to make it go away.
[♬: Share a song that takes you to a certain memory in the past.] Coheed & Cambria’s A Favor House Atlantic will forever remind me of this amazing night in the summer of.. 05? 06? that I spent with my family. My cousins and sisters and I had crappy laser tag guns, a blow up pool that we kept filling and leaping into even in the cold Seattle night. I put the speakers up to the window and blasted the song. I remember select things about that night. I remember Halo. I remember laser guns. I remember laughter, a lot of laughter. I remember hopping into a tiny blow up pool with no lights and my cousins and my sisters and I remember being young and careless and I miss that.
[☀: Share a turn on] It’s a damn good thing I live in Seattle, because nothing gets me crazier than a cold, windy night with pouring rain outside my window and a burning candle inside.
[♧: Share the story of something that makes you smile.] One time, my sister and I were standing outside of our doctor’s office, having a conversation and minding our own business when out of no where comes a little old Asian man and his cane. He mumbles a couple of words, whacks my sister with his cane in the stomach and walks away. The only thing she could come up with as a response was, “WHAT. THE. FUCK.”
