“So follow me into the dark
Break up a piece of your heart”

~ “Sway With Me,” Saweetie & GALXARA, “Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)”

Here it is. The Harlivy/Jane Eyre AU you never asked for.

Pamela Du-Barry Isley (middle surname from “Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass”) is orphaned in her infancy and adopted by her closest maternal relatives, against their will. In her childhood, she displays unladylike intelligence and a strange affinity for plants and poisons, leading to her relatives to ship her off to Wayne Institution – a very strict charity school, overseen by the abusive Mr. Woodrue.

Characters were chosen from suggestions from my followers over multiple platforms, mostly by what jumped out at me first – but it was REALLY hard to pick! You all made great suggestions!!!

“Prints for Pam-a-Lamb,” a call for submissions!

Attention all artists – my dear friend Jen Goodsell and I are running a charity print project, and we would like your help.

submissionpromo

Prompted by the unfair treatment of yet another queer character and queer relationship in a recent DC Comics event, we have created our own event in honor of the LGBTQIA+ characters who have been silenced throughout years of comic storytelling.

Representation matters. Obviously, in comics, safety is never a guarantee. Characters die all the time. But to kill off one of the only prominent, visibly queer characters in that universe, and have her girlfriend be one of the prime suspects, feels very much like a slap in the face. I can’t help believing that the impact and treatment of this situation would be far different if the characters had been a straight-presenting couple. A little bit of attention was given to Harley mourning Ivy, but I feel like much more weight would have been given to the characters’ relationship if it had been Bruce suspected of killing Selina, or Clark suspected of killing Lois, etc. As it is, it simply feels like a cheap ‘wow’ factor played to get attention and remove an “obstacle” to any assumptions of heterosexuality.

So, in honor of Pamela Lillian Isley and all other characters like her, and loves like hers that have been silenced before, we are running a charity print event!

Here’s the plan:

~ Event title: Prints for Pam-a-Lamb. Please use #printsforpamalamb when promoting.

~ All proceeds to the National LGBTQ Task Force.

~ Pieces due by March 1st, with the event to launch that day. Content is up to the artist, as long as it’s LGBTQIA+-related. Nods or direct references to the characters in question are very welcome.

~ Prints should be available for sale through the end of May, shipping in early April.

~ Each artist will handle their own sales, shipping and getting their share of the donation money to the Task Force. That’s very easy to do – there’s a donation link right on their website. IF you’re unable to handle printing, shipping or managing the donation yourself, let me know, though. I will happily handle that for you through my own site, if you’d still like to participate.

Please contact either me or Jen if you’d like to sign up, you can message me here or email me directly at rachelillustrates@yahoo.com. Same with any questions.

Thanks so much for any interest and/or good vibes in the project’s direction!

Hope you all enjoyed these! Lots of characters I hadn’t heard of before, despite my fangirling, so I’m happy to have learned something 🙂

And if you’re celebrating today, have a joyous holiday!
