*yawn* it is eight-thirty. I went to bed at two. *sigh* *yawn*

Looking at my progress with the daily meme and the snowflake challenge, one would almost think I don't want to talk here. Truth is I'm trying to figure out how to blabber on about the fun parts of Leah Far-Sighted without spoiling [personal profile] kaberett about what those fun parts are. Also what fanworks to rec for snowflake day three; they will probably all be Yuletide fics because that's what I'm trying to get through right now when I have time and brain that doesn't need to be something-elseing.

And I woke up with the revelation (though I'm sure people of color have said this before) that we're all perfectly happy, in talking about Frozen, to believe that Olaf is human. Olaf. The talking fucking snowman. But even consider the possibility of including people of color in Frozen...

Is Leah Farsighted available for general reading, or is it still in progress and you want to finish it first? It's a great title.

It breaks the unwritten Disney rule - stories told in PoC settings can have PoC, but white people and PoC can't mingle in the same tale. (Except, maybe Pocahontas, and only out of plot necessity.)

With the exceptions of Pocahontas and Hunchback, I think the animated Disney pictures all hew to that rule - PoC only in stories set in predominantly PoC places, white people in white places, and the two do not mix. Wonder what Walt thought about such things as integration...
