I found this article about the Marrakesh Treaty to improve accessibility of print materials.

Terramagne has one too, but it is somewhat different. I couldn't resist laying out some of those divergences. You can see how they're doing things a little faster and better. *chuckle* And what happens when a supervillain has reasons of enlightened self-interest to back the thing. ;)

This is a freebie for Blogging Against Disablism Day. An audience poll has selected the poem "Void of Course" from The Moon Door as today's celebration of access and representation for people with disabilities. This poem is spillover from the January 19, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] technoshaman and LJ user Lb_lee. It also fills the "mutation / physical transformation" square in my 5-18-15 card for the [community profile] origfic_bingo fest.

Note: There is some squabbling in this poem, because people have different opinions about how to solve problems. It's inevitable in any group, but more common in support groups where folks are perpetually low on spoons. Happily the group has ways of handling this.

This is the bonus post for April. I've written a variety of things in Polychrome Heroics that feature busking or buskers, along with some similar activities, so I thought it would be fun to explore what it's like there.

[personal profile] shiori_makiba has posted two new entries in the Berettaflies thread.

"Playing Games" focuses on Tsubasa and Ashley, when they are playing cards (with ultraviolet ink) and realize that everyone but Ashley can see the markings.

"A Pretty Good Friend" gives Tsubasa's perspective on inclusion and friendship.  Aww.

[personal profile] siliconshaman has posted the story "Marked Cards."  Ashley's teammates are playing with UV-printed cards, which she can't read.  It gets a bit awkward.

 [personal profile] shiori_makiba has posted a brilliant entry in the series Love Is For Children.  "Tunnel Vision" is written half from Nick Fury's perspective and half from Phil Coulson's perspective.  It's a heartbreaking look at what's gone wrong with a great relationship.

I also found this useful for two new warnings which I have added to my repertoire on AO3: "Consider Your Headspace" and "Heed Trigger Warnings."  Those are handy for intense material.  Given how this story's opening line is such a punch in the face, they are apt.

 [personal profile] shiori_makiba has posted the poem "Aftermath" which is Tsubasa's perspective of what happens immediately after the kidnapping.  It runs largely concurrent with "After Shocks."

I finished this yesterday as part of the [community profile] crowdfunding  Creative Jam, then polished it this morning. "A Confession of Pain" is the latest poem in the Berettaflies thread.  It's one of the two major pieces that need to happen before Stylet turns himself in, the other being the birth of the bug-eyed puppies.

A Dreamwidth prompt inspired the free-verse poem "A Confession of Pain." Alicia and Judd visit the Easy City police station to share their past experiences regarding the Spectrum.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer posted the story "Misty Morning, Pocket Full of Stones" as part of the Berettaflies storyline.  It actually goes back farther, though, because Easy City has had a human trafficking problem for a while and that's what this is about.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted the story "Float Like a Leaf, Sting Like a Berettafly" in which Wayne encounters more trouble during his protest.  It is a sequel to "Synchronicity."  <3 T-American sociodynamics.

WARNING: This poem contains some intense material. Highlight to read more detailed warnings, some of which are spoilers. This is heavy-duty hurt/comfort with emotional angst, messy medical details, trying to take care of a currently unconscious and generally traumatized person, difficulty balancing conflicts between Turq's mental and emotional needs without benefit of his input at the moment, complications and challenges of soup care in general, trying to figure out ways of minimizing or compensating for triggers, worrying about an injured friend, and other mayhem. On the whole, though, it's sweet to see Ansel and Ethan working so hard to take care of Turq as best they can. If these are touchy topics for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before deciding whether you want to read this right now. However, it contains some major plot developments, so skipping it may make subsequent poems seem more confusing or less justified.

This poem is spillover from the April 5, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl, but it has its roots in several discussions on [personal profile] dialecticdreamer's blog about characters with disabilities including "Disability On Screen" and "Future Illness and Ableism." The prompt from [personal profile] capriuni about Claudius I is actually under "Prompts Open for April 2016." [personal profile] technoshaman prompted for Granny Whammy in my fishbowl. It also fills the "living legend" square in my 4-1-16 card for the Archetypal Characters Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] capriuni. It belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics.

Warning: This poem discusses disability and discrimination, along with Granny Whammy's muleheaded stance that everyone with superpowers ought to be a superhero. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.
