Writer Fight: Roxane Gay vs xTx

(click for instant testosterone boost)


You didn't think Writer Fight was just for the boys, did you? Silly bird.

While Butler and Bell duke it out over HERE, two powerhouses are getting ready to throw down below. That's right, it's Roxane Gay vs xTx time, publisher vs author.

xTx, the faceless entity who's taken the web by storm with He is Talking to the Fat Lady & her forthcoming Normally Special, squares off against Roxane Gay, writer, co-editor of PANK, power behind Tiny Hardcore Press, and pretty much the backbone of the online(and off-line)writing community.

I'm not gonna lie, this is going to be a nasty brawl. Who will win? You tell me. The poll closes on Friday. The winner of this bout will take on....?

Update: POLL CLOSED

FIRST OF ALL, I WOULD NEVER FIGHT ROXANE UNLESS WE WERE NAKED AND COVERED IN CHOCOLATE PUDDING AND I WAS GETTING PAID IN HEROIN AND PORN, AND EVEN THEN I THINK ALL I COULD MANAGE TO DO TO HER IS TICKLE. I AM NON-VIOLENT. ROXANE WOULD KICK MY ASS, HANDS DOWN. BUT IF I WANTED MY BLOOD ON ANYBODY'S HANDS, IT WOULD BE HERS.

Covered in chocolate pudding. Ha.

WHAT SHE SAID. THAT IS LITERALLY WHAT I WOULD HAVE SAID.

WHY ARE YOU YELLING? WHY AM I YELLING? WHY IS EVERYONE BUT NATE YELLING?

Roxane Gay said...

BECAUSE I AM FEELING VERY INTENSE AND ALIVE ABOUT THIS.

Mel Bosworth said...

I ADMIRE YOUR INTENSITY AND ALIVENESS. I ALSO ADMIRE YOUR OCTAGON PROFICIENCY. WHY MUST YOU BATTER XTX? WHY WHY WHY?

I can't choose between these two. It is like one of those scenes from an 80s action movie where the bad guy tries to get the good guy to choose which of two awesome people is going to die, except rather than being children or major american cities, these are two of the awesomest writers I know. And instead of the good guy, it is the internet (less good). Mel Bosworth, YOU ARE A SADIST.

Mel Bosworth said...

oh just pick one. muah-ha-ha-ha!

Tracy Lucas said...

It's like Predator VS Alien, or Freddy vs Jason.

They should totally make those movies.

I can't fucking pick.
But I'm going to.
Sorry, other person!

It would be cool if this skirmish resulted in a xTx and Roxane collaboration project.

That would be a good read.

WHILE YOU GUYS SIT AROUND TALKING I AM GETTING MY ASS KICKED!!! SUCKS TO BE ME!!

This is a tough choice. xTx is a virtual unknown--she might know every martial art. She might be a ghost. She is the Most Known Unknown, and if Donald Rumsfield or Three Six Mafia taught us anything (they didn't) that is the scariest thing ever.
