Pacifier by Heather Lynn, 1996.
Sometimes you read a zine written by a teenager ten or more years ago, and you wonder how the author is doing and hope she's all right. I always feel that way when I read a zine by Heather Lynn, who I glean from Facebook is still friends with a bunch of 1990s zine girls.

V-Reject #11 by Anna Sin, 1995.
"you act like yr an authority on 'punk,' like you can speak for us all. well fuck you! it's elitist assholes like you who are ruining punk! who make me puke every time i hear the word 'punk'- a label i used to proudly identify with a couple ears ago, before all this exploitation crap. YOU give punk a bad name, NOT the 'posers'!! you come off so fucking arrogant when you say shit like 'my music,' 'our music,' etc. guess what?- the music DOESN'T BELONG TO YOU!! it belongs to everybody! your 'posers' CAN'T HURT YOU!!"
