Hi, anyone newly subscribed! Say hi if you desire :D
I'm honestly delighted that I have had to do skip=60 to read back through what everyone has written since the last time I checked. Also, there seems to be an active Thor/Loki DW comm now? so all my dreams are coming true?? (Fun fact, I still think of Harry Potter and Doctor Who as my longest-running fandoms, because when you're a young teenager everything
feels like it takes forever but I was only truly immersed in HP fandom for about four years, and similarly everything feels very high-commitment when you write 50k about something two summers running, but for all that I was also only really immersed in Who fandom for about three years. Meanwhile: started having Thor feelings the summer the first movie came out, here we are seven years later and not even how thoroughly I don't care about Infinity War can actually quell my feelings.) In any event, I am sad that tumblr is tanking in the sense that I'm going to miss the easy doses of good fanart, or gifsets if I want something low-maintenance but still fannish. And on the other hand, journaling is 1000% my social fandom interaction of choice and I am pretty overjoyed DW has life in it again.
Fannishly I am:
- over 1000 words on my Yuletide but not remotely near done with it; I signed up before I got a new job that is less part-time this month than I expected, but I have enough of my Yuletide done that I think I can manage without defaulting
- reading through my two Shame Shelves, as I have dubbed the bottom two shelves of my book case, wherein live all the books I still need to read; I finally felt like I was in an emotional place from which I could securely finish NK Jemisin's Broken Earth trilogy, and yesterday I finished The Stone Sky
, which was so good, SO GOOD, and when I was done I gently set it down next to me and sobbed into my hands for several minutes -- highly recommended if you're prepared for how unflinchingly brutal it is
- admitting to myself that, given the number of times I've loopingly rewatched both with thewrongkindofpc
, I am no longer just casually watching either Buzzfeed Unsolved or Worth It; the three separate fics I appear to be writing might also be a clue that this is an actual fandom of mine now. I have never had an rpf fandom before! how does one even cope with these real humans constantly generating new canon!! (one presumably copes with the fourth wall by locking all the fic the fuck down or getting a sock for it.)
- sloooooowly writing the Will/Hannibal fic of my heart; every scene takes a billion years because Will Graham is extremely difficult
to write accurately, but I really love what I have so far, especially how deeply spot-on bizarre I have managed to make the dialogue
Anyway how are YOUR Yuletide fics going?
