Analysis of the TG GenreThis started out as a collection of thoughts that come up whenever I try to write a new story. They sum up my perception of the genre and hence make for a great starting point whenever I want to write something that is less traditional. Feel free to take any of these ideas and spin them into your own story. I would love to read them if you would leave me a link to your art in the comments.
Please keep in mind while reading this that this is my humble perception of the genre. If you disagree with any of my assumptions please let me know and I will gladly try to learn more.
Let's start from the top. While the term TG is (no pun intended) gender-neutral you immediately notice a tendency towards male to female transformations. I think this is mainly due to the skew in audience preference towards this "direction" of transformation as opposed to the other way. Whenever you do see female to male transformation it is usually accompanied with the main character's transformation into a girl
The Difference Between Villains and Antagonists
Well, it's December. Normally I would spend this time of year rambling about the new Hobbit movie (and trust me, that time will come), but I thought of trying something a little different this year. I sort of had a fanfiction-themed month back in April, and since that lent itself to a few interesting literary topics, I figured why not do another theme month? That's why I'm officially declaring this December my Villain Month.
Discussions about writing villains, lectures on the elements of villains, case-studies on famous villains from fiction -- I'm going to cover as much as I can before the end of the year. There's a lot to blog about, and seeing how we're already a week into December, let's dive in! I'll start with a fairly basic question that's been in my head for a while:
What is the difference between villains and antagonists?
We all know essentially what both of those terms mean, and they're often used interchangeably when discussing movies, books, and other storytelling me
So I Wrote an Essay...Everyone who watched cartoons as a child is familiar with the popular persona of SpongeBob Squarepants and his crazy aquatic friends. I want to bring to mind one specific episode of the long-running show, one regarding the affair of imagination. It seems like a silly thing to mention, but this installment perfectly demonstrates this topic by which I am so captivated. To briefly summarize the moral of the episode, imagination is the key to enjoying simple things.
Now, this statement is obviously true of the early stages of one's life, when a creative mind is a crucial component of a child's learning experience and development into a healthy individual. While I have never been athletic, self-confident, even all that courteous, I would consider my childhood to be quite rich because of the presence of that vital imagination. I have met literal, shallow people without a scrap of imagination in their entire personality, and those people almost frighten me. The words "it's not real" are the w
Bronies from a Sociological Perspective"When I came into Star Trek with Patrick, the Star Trek fan base had already been established. I feel like I’m at the beginning and watching of a new fan base and I want to invite you who are Trek fans to embrace Friendship Is Magic fans because I discovered that we all have a lot in common."
-John de Lancie, Star Trek actor and My Little Pony voice actor
On October 10, 2010, the Hub Network aired the premiere of a reboot of My Little Pony called My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It’s creator, Lauren Faust, intended for the show to appeal to not only the children it was marketed toward, but also to adults who either grew up with the original series or were forced to watch it with their kids. She succeeded, but not in the way or to the extent she thought she would.
After the show’s premiere various internet sites, particularly 4-chan, began to explode with discussion and jokes. From there, word spread throughout the internet and My Little Pony gained a fandom of adu
Influence Personality PsychologySocial Influence
What causes us to obey to authority figures such as police, teachers and politicians and why do people conform to social norms? A number of psychologists have tries to explain obedience and social influence, and in this section of Psychologist World we look at studies, theories and explanations of the influences we succumb to in every day life.
The events of World War II and the Holocaust, in which millions were sacrificed by soldiers' willingness to obey to authority figues in Nazi Germany raise questions as to why people are willing to bypass their own values and morals in favour of another person's.
The first form of influence in our lives comes from the roles we see ourselves as fulfilling, explaining why some groups of society behave in a similar way en mass. For example, a student in school will usually treat their teacher with more respect than, say, another child. When they leave school, they will act differently towards different people dependi

Seven of Nine vs. Kes
How did one of "Star Trek's" most fascinating characters earn a sizable hatred, just for replacing some Tinkerbell imposter? On the other hand, maybe Kes doesn't deserve the hate she gets either; she's like, two years old, give her a break! Only one thing is certain; there isn't enough room for two cheesecakes on Voyager! Who will be victorious? Which assets will prove more powerful--ESP, or Borg nanoprobes? Mini-skirts, or catsuits? We list the pros of each, and you decide!
Reasons Seven of Nine Pawns Kes:
1.) Seven is accused of being a copy of Data, the best TNG character ever. Kes is accused of copying Troi. What does that say?
2.) How many ex-Borg characters existed in sci-fi before Seven? How many ESP fairy-princesses before Kes?
3.) "The fun will now commence."
4.) Seven chooses Chakotay. Kes chooses Neelix…
5.) Hey! Looks aren't what matters! Think about brains, and personality! ….Seven chooses Chakotay…and Kes picks Neelix…
6.) Seven's evil
