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 soundtracksCollapse )

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.

So I was all sweaty, and I was thinking about Tim DrakeCollapse )

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.

I usually try not to do memes here- I have weird mental rules about what is "fandom" and what is not- but this is my favorite poem of all time, anywhere, ever.

My fandom fights The Man.

thete1 is talking, with both wit and eloquence, about why queer women like slash. Jessica Ruth came up with a wonderful theory here, and a lot of what she said is similar to what I'm gonna say. I think we all think about it, on some level, and for me, it's part of a series of bigger, interconnected questions- about slash, about fanfiction, about women, about community, about having really unorthodox fucking hobbies. But mostly, it's just about me, and my body, and how those two are the same thing.

Disclaimer: This is just me, talking. I like fandom, and I like you. Yeah, you. With the hat. I like you.

Six years' worth of metaCollapse )

Would anyone be willing to look at a fandom-at-large meta post in the next few hours? It's a bit of a riff on- well, fandom-at-large, and I'd like to show it to at least a couple people before throwing it at the world.

If you're interested, IM me at the name in the user info? Thanks, guys.

Just saw Harry Potter; must sleep; full recap tomorrow, for anyone who leans in a Hogwarts-ly direction. But rest assured...

cut for spoilersCollapse )

I'm doing the WIP meme now because I'm late to every party, and because my desktop has treasures that my laptop just doesn't. I think I've somehow consolidated a meme and...WIP Amnesty Day, maybe? Anyway, these aren't the fun snappy dialouge summaries everyone else did; they're just excerpts. Make of them what you will.

Harry Potter, copficCollapse )

West Wing/Sports Night crossoverCollapse )

some sort of Smallville thingCollapse )

Pirates of the Caribbean, something about the North AtlanticCollapse )

some_stars, who is thoughtful and apparently shares my love for geography, said:

I love what ratcreature said about Gotham and Metropolis being "aspects" of real-world NYC.

And then I typed out a comment that tried to eat the entire DC universe, and so I moved it over here. This is actually only a fraction of what would no doubt turn into a friggin' dissertation if I let it, but, eh. It's a first draft at the very least.

Bad fic is the ultimate crack. That is all.

Watched Batman Forever today because I am a huge dork and because I missed The Ten Commandments (apparently it was on on Palm Sunday, bah.) and Val Kilmer seemed like a fitting substitute.


Dick Grayson: I need a name. Batboy, Nightwing, I dunno. What's a good sidekick name?

Bruce Wayne: How about Dick Grayson, college student?

And my inner DC fangirl gives a tiny "squee!" and dances about in circles.
