I got your random fannish babble right here, punk.

So, I adore justpopemotion. And I love reading other people's writing or character soundtracks, and I want to make my own, but I never, ever will.



The reason I can't make character soundtracks? I know, I know with absolute certainty, that no fictional character I have ever loved, not a one of them, shares my completely non-ironic love for Garth Brooks.



And, you know, fandom is something I think about a lot. Especially when I get a new one. Like. Um. DC Comics. (Which, incidentally, I now drive a ridiculous distance to my local comics shop, if by "local" you mean "in a 50 mile radius". Actually, that's exactly what I mean, but beyond that, it has the most hysterically Dungeons and Dragons name ever, and it's in this creepy little stripmall, and the owners are both Marvel fans, and if you needed proof that we're looking at the Good Crack? That's it. The gas costs me more than the books.) And I've found that the best time to think about my fandoms (and, really, my favorite characters in those fandoms, and who they're sleeping with) is when I'm working out, because there aren't a lot of other things to think about.



I use hand wraps at the gym once in a while. I put one on the other day and then for some unknown reason paused and wandered around a bit. I looked down at my one fully fleshy hand and my one black-electrical-tape-encased hand and thought, "Heh. I look like Tim." And then I thought, "Bwuh...?" And then I thought, "Oh. Tim Drake. Who...oh. Right. Is only missing a hand in the Angelsverse." And then I felt like a big fangirl all day.

Are you still here? Why? Why aren't you reading the Angelsverse, which is just so fantabulous I can barely contain myself? Go. Read. Love.

And also, I totally refer to my workouts as "BatTraining."



It's possible that there are entries coming on fannish evolution, "War Games" and "Identity Crisis", and the historical tomfoolery required to make polyamory socially acceptable in a post-industrial society.

But I make no promises.

Wouldn't happen to be The Dragon's Lair in Fayetteville, would it? That's mine.
