Knickerweasels is a weekly fancast by hosts flutiebear and myjusticecake on all things Dragon Age and fandom. We’ve taken our ongoing conversation to the internet in the hopes that some of you will find it interesting, amusing, or perhaps even want to join in.
Episode #17: “Closing The Gates To Fandom Disneyland”
This week myjusticecake takes a break, and flutiebear is joined by the luminous missl0nelyhearts to discuss Fanfiction.net’s Great Smut Purge of 2012. Is FF.net shooting itself in the foot by finally enforcing its long-standing ban on mature fic? Do ratings systems work? Also: Our thoughts on Glee’s influence on pop culture, how smutfic helps us cope, and why bisexuality is not like a fedora.
Plus, missl0nelyhearts and listener veriond take flutie and cake to task for their opinions about gender equality in Thedas. Spoiler: We were wrong.

Thanks again to our special guest host this week, missl0nelyhearts. Seriously she’s as classy as gin and as charming as bourbon, and it was a delight to finally get to chat with her in person myself. Thanks, girl!
