A little chart update..

Either Scrubs ditched Dean or Dean ditched Scrubs – history hasn’t got around to relating the exact details yet. Who knows, they may even have had one of those fabled amicable breakups for all I know. History hasn’t related Dean’s response yet either, but ole Scrubs is very merry indeed and within 24hrs she’d smsed Hero to ask her to put the word out to “the right women” that she’s single, because, “the good ones get snapped up fast.”

So if there are any lesbians out there wanting one of those boomerang relationships with someone who thinks her last girlfriend is stupid … no, don’t apply here, the whole thing just curls my nose-hairs unpleasantly.

Whoever gets Dean will be lucky though. {prev. chart story thingy}


hero has a dyke dilemma

Pay attention, your input is required.

Hero’s main lesbian connection is a strangely uptight and clean woman called Scrubs.  Scrubs has been going out with a very cool butch called Dean for a few years.  They make rather a surprising couple – Scrubs is all about labels and status and Dean is all about hard work and kindness.  Dean’s a bit of a  legend and has been out with her fair share of women locally – no idea about Scrubs.  Scrubs is low-grade, low-level, permanently dissatisfied and constantly searches for opportunities to flirt with other women.  She reckons it’s all just harmless fun, but Dean doesn’t like it one bit.

Scrubs thinks she’s cleverer than Dean, better looking; she thinks she’s just better.  Dean thinks she’s in a serious relationship with Scrubs.  Scrubs gets insanely jealous when other dykes go anywhere near Dean.  There are lots of good things about both of these lesbians, but for morals, you’d shop at Dean.

Scrubs has two primary targets for this “harmless fun,” the first is Heidi – a good looking and rather androgynous bisexual woman currently in a long-term open relationship with a man.  The second and allegedly more meaningful target is Fluff, who says she is straight, but who, rumour has it, has been the subject of much local gossip amongst people who suspect she might be attracted to Scrubs.  Heidi is no threat; if there was a custody battle between Scrubs and Dean, Heidi would be firmly in Dean’s camp.  Fluff’s an unknown and seems quite uptight anyway.

The reason this is Hero’s dilemma, is that Scrubs confides in Hero and Hero, frankly, disapproves of it all.  Scrubs has also been trying to get Hero to facilitate a meeting between her and Fluff, without Dean present.  Hero hasn’t a clue how to deal with it – what do you think?


A Little Dyke Drama Spiderweb

microcosm

One of the few aspects of The L Word that really does reflect lesbian life painfully accurately, is Our Chart.  You can go years without being involved in charts at all, but eventually you get older or busier or something and the chart bites your arse.  It’s as logical as a village.

Continuing from the previous episode

Before she went out with Sian, Ruth was with a woman called Oil.  Oil and Sian had fucked a few times and were friends up until the Sian/Ruth thing happened.  It’s OK, they made friends again after it all ended, but not before Oil had dissed Ruth all over the internet.  Ruth maintained Oil was always in love with Sian – but that was never, ever true.  Oil dumped Ruth and Ruth hung on until Oil said, “Please, I need you to let go now.”

Erika, who was painfully drowning in unrequited love for Ruth all the while and forever, had a serious ex girlfriend called Tracy, who was allegedly an overweight alcoholic at the time.  After generating a magnetically vomit-inducing rumour that one of Tracy’s dogs had licked Erika somewhere unfortunate one night during sex, the two split up.  Before she found some form of weight-loss and recovery, Tracy had a relationship with a woman called Peanut.  During this time, she generated the rumour that she quaffed last night’s whiskey first thing in the morning.  Tracy then went out with someone called Asia, Peanut got involved with Sian and for a little while, they socialised together and nobody generated any rumours at all for a bit.  Then Tracy dumped Asia and Peanut dumped Sian.  Then Sian and Peanut got back together and then Sian cheated on Peanut with a woman called Hero, more or less simultaneously introducing Peanut to Groupie.  “I met your bisexual friend,” said Peanut to Sian – it took her a few months, but not many, to get engaged to Groupie.

Sian admitted her betrayal to Peanut, who went batshit and stalked her online, threatening legal action, all of this while smitten with and engaged to Groupie, of course.  Erika admitted the betrayal of their friendship (with Ruth) to Sian, who found she actually didn’t care at all, having fallen for Hero in a serious way.  Hero’s ex, Fifi, meanwhile, continued to fire bitter verbal cannonballs at Hero.  Some exes cling like leeches, right?  You all know what I’m talking about.   Sian and Hero contemplated introducing Peanut and Fifi so that they could be undead lesbian zombies from hell together.

Tracy, meanwhile, embarked upon a relationship with Mondo, who hasn’t appeared in this tale yet.  Mondo was a lesbian mommy – in true good and liberal South African lesbian style, she and her then long-term girlfriend Rage had adopted a baby from a different race group.  The kid lived with Rage during the week and with Mondo most weekends.  Rage’s next girlfriend after Mondo, was Arta – they went out for some years.  Before going out with Rage, Arta and Sian had a one night stand full of laughter and truly lousy sex – they stayed friends afterwards, but Rage never trusted Sian again.  Rage had been in love with Oil, by the way, for 17 years – the love eventually turned to hate, for reasons unknown to anyone but Rage, who didn’t acquire her name for nothing.

Ruth fucked Erika and broke her heart and then she fucked a woman called Trudy, but didn’t break a thing.  Trudy ended up going out with Spider.  Spider and Erika used to kiss when dared to at parties, but never more than that.  Spider was one of those psycho lesbians, who’d been in a relationship with Sian’s friend Zed for a while and made her life hell by, amongst other things, faking a terminal disease.  Spider also fucked one of Sian’s exes, called Bambi and went out with Ruth’s ex, Lulu for a while.  Before going out with Bambi, Sian had an illicit affair with Bambi’s ex, Zero.  Zero was involved with some woman called Angel at the time.

The scary thing about all of this is that I’m only listing the connections I know – I can almost guarantee there are a whole lot more threads in that little spiderweb …
