So, when I was doing my thesis on whether or not fanfiction should be considered a legitimate genre of literature, my advising professor asked me for examples.  I gave him the generic ones, of course - “Pride & Prejudice and Zombies” is a horror fanfic of “Pride & Prejudice”, “50 Shades of Grey” is an erotica fic of “Twilight" - and that seemed to make him understand what fanfiction is, but not how it’s useful.  So I thought about it, and, after about a minute, I said, “Paradise Lost is basically a fanfiction of the Book of Genesis.  And The Divine Comedy is an epic self-insertion fic for Catholic doctrine.  So, basically, you were teaching us fanfiction last semester.”  I had never before seen a grown man’s eyes widen with such fear, incomprehension, disgust, awe, and understanding.

#does that mean the renaissance was almost entirely fan art?

Yes. Yes it does. All ur classic favs had the Renaissance version of DeviantArt. 

For real though, listen up, I’m in 14th to 18th Century literature right now and literally every piece of medieval and renaissance literature is fanfiction. Back then, it was quite popular to write your own version of a story. But frowned upon to write your own, original piece. I mean, look at how many tales have Sir Gawain in them–all written by different authors. There’s Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, The Wife of Bath’s Tale, Le Morte D'Arthur–just to name a few, he’s in fucking everything.

Not even to mention Arthur himself. Arthur’s tale has been retold so many times by so many different authors. When Sir Thomas Mallory wrote Le Morte D'Arthur, he read as much Arthurian literature as he could, used it as reference to write his own original telling of King Arthur. But like I said, that was frowned upon. He was so afraid of writing his own story for Arthur, he kept referring back to a “French book” that didn’t even exist.

Fanfiction quite literally made up all of medieval + renaissance literature (and art). It is in human nature.

  • someone in your class mentions communism. they speak about it at length. you are in biology class.
  • you text your mother. she does not respond for 3 days. you text her again and then realize that it has only been 2 hours since your first text.
  • freshmen travel in packs. what are they afraid of.
  • your class is in room 153. the numbers start at 201. you cannot find the first floor.
  • someone is talking about communism. it is not the same person as last time. this is an english class.
  • your transcript says you have an A in philosophy 3310. you do not remember taking this class. what did you learn? what did you do?
  • you meet your elevator buddy. you do not speak. you never do. you ride in silence. one day, they are not there. you miss them.
  • your advisor refers you to the registrar. the registrar refers you to admissions. admissions refers you to both the registrar and your advisor. you have spoken to two people who do not exist and one who has been dead for ten years.
  • the boy who sits next to you wears the same clothes everyday. you think this is strange but when you mention it, he tells you that this is the first time he has worn this outfit. you realize that you have lived this day before.
  • you pass someone sleeping in the quad. he has always been there. stop looking at him.
  • someone answers, “communism.” it is not someone who has been previously mentioned. the question was, “what is an example of the art of ancient greece?”
  • you have a doppelganger on campus. you have never met them. they know all of your friends.
  • the seniors speak only to professors. their eyes are dead. they have given up the safety of the pack long ago.
  • the professor is talking about STD’s. your math class is very strange.
  • the powerpoint is in comic sans. you suspect that your economics professor is an extraterrestrial being after all.
  • “communism,” the man serving you lunch insists. wearily you nod. that’s what everyone says.

Gabriel Bell
Born: April 24, 1987
Died: September 3, 2024

Known as the father of Earth’s post-modern reformism, Bell galvanized the people and government of the United States of America when he led an uprising in San Francisco’s Sanctuary District “A.” Besides arranging for food and medical supplies for the hostages, Bell was able to establish a wide broadcast data link through the planetary communication system, “Interface.” Through this broadcast, he was able bring an unavoidable awareness of the ineffective and cruel nature of the time’s Sanctuary Districts to a wide audience. This helped create public outcry for massive reform to the mental health and criminal justice systems as well as widespread economic change. The American political climate eventually shifted towards justice and equality, and away from the climate of inequality and ignorance. Although Bell was killed during the uprising, he is known as a figurehead for the movement and change it spawned, and the uprising has since been known as the Bell Riots.

These episodes first aired in 1995 - the notion that economic inequality in the US would increase dramatically by 2020 is distressingly real to life. I look at mass homelessness in my city and… damn.

I like that Sisko is such a history nerd; it’s not just necessary to the episode, but I feel like him having studied the ugly histories of humanity makes him better prepared to lead DS9 without being self-righteous about the struggles other species are going through. He knows that humans are capable of the same or worse as any other species.

Sisko’s knowledge of Gabriel Bell also fits into a larger pattern of his knowledge and respect for African-American history. Most black characters in space before or since aren’t tied to a specific culture (Geordi was just black, and Uhura was “African” and never had a chance to discuss what that meant to her), and to be honest most of them them are aliens or stuck in deeply stereotypical racialized roles (Firefly). 

But Sisko was always characterized as African-American, coming from a specific place (New Orleans) and culture, and with deep regard for his ethnic and national roots. (See also his obsession with the uber-USian sport of baseball, which is a fringy nerd culture in his own time.) He decorates with African masks, cooks his own culture’s traditional food, talks to his son about their shared culture, complains when a holodeck program mocks the reality of segregation in the 1950s US, and reveres specifically African-American heroes like Jackie Robinson and Gabriel Bell.

Even more importantly, he takes on and triumphs over a series of problems on the space station that have specific parallels in his people’s history: white flight, lynching, interracial adoption, and most famously racism in science fiction itself. And in this episode, poverty and segregation.

It’s no coincidence that this episode shows Sisko and Bashir–two nonwhite and relatively dark-skinned human men–immediately rounded up and forced into the horror of the Sanctuary District, while Dax, a literal alien who can pass for a white woman with tattoos, is eagerly embraced and protected by the oppressive upper class.
