I am still alive?? Perhaps my new year's resolution should have been "Have any online presence at all that is not twitter;" twitter, it turns out, is really easy to keep up with when you have a smartphone, and also stupidly early mornings during which most sane people are still asleep and not posting. I realize it's perfectly acceptable to not be on tumblr all the time, and only update my DW a couple times a month, but ... idk, I haven't been on tumblr since early December, I don't even know what the shape of Hobbit fandom is like! (I hear tell there is no standardized pairingsmush, though, so we can now witness that pinnacle of the pairingsmush trend, Thorbo Bagginshield. That, or my friends have been making stuff up to make me laugh.) In not-tumblr spaces, fannish feelings I have had:
+ Les Mis! Ever since teching Les Mis in high school I've had lots of feeeelings about it, and seeing the film made me really want to reread the book, which I also haven't done since high school. Seeing the film did ... not give me an excess of Valjean/Javert feelings, except inasmuch as I always have a lot of those; I haven't gone questing for fic, but The Drowning Sky
, a lovely AU fic, somehow fell into my lap anyway, and I need roughly ten billion more fics of that vein.
+ Avengers, per usual. Part one of the stupid long post-Avengers fic is done, part two has ... really ill-advised makeouts and a ten-page outline, I'm beginning to be worried that [a] it will end up being 100,000 words long and [b] I won't finish it in time to not be jossed by Thor 2. (I know
I won't be finished in time for Iron Man 3, but that's okay.)
+ FESTIVIDS. Unfortunately my internet has been so slow that it almost entirely refuses to stream vids, sooo my actual watching of things may have to wait until there is reveal and signed downloads. ALAS. Seriously I'm so excited about all the Earth's Mightiest Heroes vids I haven't been able to see yet.
+ WHITE COLLAR. I am currently keeping up with, um, I think the current roster of telly is something like Castle, Elementary, Scandal, Revenge, and obviously Doctor Who and Community when they return, but between all the real-life things I have going on, I've been really terrible at keeping up with them. White Collar? YES GOOD WATCHING RIGHT NOW, show of my heart! ( Brief cheerful spoilery reaction to this week's episode. )
That's about it. But in case you were wondering, internet, fuuuuuck it's cold in Boston right now.
