I think you’re looking for Annihilation, Annihilation: Conquest - Quasar (yes it’s really called that), and the 2008 volume of Guardians of the Galaxy.

First appearance: Captain Marvel (vol. 4) #16 (December 2003), coming out issue Captain Marvel #25. Great mini-series. Annihilation: Quasar, was on the GotG team from 2008 to I believe 2010.

Yay, thank you both. I’ve been meaning to look into GotG for a while, and this looks like good motivation.

"I think a lot of people don’t understand that when we talk about these issues—blackface, rape jokes, the appropriation of marginalized cultures, and so on—we are having an ethical conversation, not a legal one. There is no thought police. No one’s coming to your house and carting you off to Insensitivity Prison. But you, as a person living on this planet, get to make a choice whether you want to hurt people or help people. Whether you want to listen or shut people out. I can’t imagine why you’d choose “defensive shithead” over “nice lady capable of empathy,” but okey dokey."

I have asked this myself in the past and never gotten an answer.

Maybe today will be the day we are both finally enlightened.

Maybe someone made a typo and it just got out of hand?

I kinda feel like panic!at the disco started the whole exclamation point thing and then it caught on around the internet, but maybe they got it from somewhere else, IDK.

The world may never know…

Maybe it’s something mathematical?

I’ve been in fandom since *about* when Panic! formed and the adjective!character thing was already going strong, pretty sure it predates them.

It’s a way of referring to particular variations of (usually) a character — dark!Will, junkie!Sherlock, et cetera. I have suspected for a while that it originated from some archive system that didn’t accommodate spaces in its tags, so to make common interpretations/versions of the characters searchable, people started jamming the words together with an infix.

(Lately I’ve seen people use the ! notation when the suffix isn’t the full name, but is actually the second part of a common fandom portmanteau. This bothers me a lot but it happens, so it’s worth being aware of.)

"Bang paths" (! is called a "bang"when not used for emphasis) were the first addressing scheme for email, before modern automatic routing was set up. If you wanted to write a mail to the Steve here in Engineering, you just wrote "Steve" in the to: field and the computer sent it to the local account named Steve. But if it was Steve over in the physics department you wrote it to phys!Steve; the computer sent it to the "phys" computer, which sent it in turn to the Steve account. To get Steve in the Art department over at NYU, you wrote NYU!art!Steve- your computer sends it to the NYU gateway computer sends it to the "art" computer sends it to the Steve account. Etc. ("Bang"s were just chosen because they were on the keyboard, not too visually noisy, and not used for a huge lot already).

It became pretty standard jargon, as I understand, to disambiguate when writing to other humans. First phys!Steve vs the Steve right next to you, just like you were taking to the machine, then getting looser (as jargon does) to reference, say, bearded!Steve vs bald!Steve.

So I’m guessing alternate character version tags probably came from that.

First, as one not-so-secret JiM lover to another, thank you. It was a tremendously good time. And second, at the risk of sounding obvious, the highlight was 100% making a book with Valerio Schiti. He was a delightful companion and a hilarious collaborator right from the get go. And  I think we both, inexplicably, ‘got’ Sif in the same way… fierce and elegant, dorky and awkwardly literal… all in equal measure. Totally incapable of telling a knock knock joke, she was our enormously gifted, sometimes misguided and mistaken,  Asgardian giraffe. I hope that some of what we were able to do with that character sticks going forward.

-Kathryn

That’s why Kathryn Immonen is one of the kindest, sweetest and most talented person I’ve met in comics. I’m not just talking about what she said about me, I’m talking about “Asgardian giraffe”! That’s PERFECT!

Thank you Kathryn, I miss you ;)

Ha ha, thank you! Except what I really need someone to tell me is which issues to read. So if you can help me there… *puppy dog eyes*

y’know, seeing as how this website has an incredible collective interest in girls, homosexuals, Marvel superheroes, outer space, and dragons

I’m a little surprised I don’t hear as much about Phyla-Vell, a Marvel superhero space-venturing lesbian who is canonically in a relationship with a girl who is sometimes a dragon

You don’t understand. Don’t pretend that you do. You don’t know what it’s like… having everything that makes you who you are strip-mined so you can be… a good little slave.

Tech Writer Clive Thompson: “The world of fanfiction is the most technologically explosive thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”

almostperfectalibi:

The leading flank in discovering how to use technology in cool, interesting, thoughtful ways will generally always be the amateurs. […]

I have a whole theory, actually, that the world of fan fiction is the most technologically explosive thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Every single technology that has come along, fan fiction people have come along and colonized it and stress-tested it and found the most amazing things. They were the first people to realize the potential of meta-tagging and bookmarking sites. Like, here’s a link with four tags, and then you go to a fan fiction person, and they have a link, and it has 70 tags. They are pushing this to absolute limit, and they are finding these amazing ways to sort knowledge.

It’s all because they’re passionate and nobody is making any money off of it and they don’t want to make any money off of it. They get some amazing stuff done. If you’re ever wondering about a future technology, just drop what you’re doing and find out what fan fiction people are doing with it. What are fan fiction people doing right now with WhatsApp? I don’t know. But, whatever it is, it’s the future.
