I’m not going down alone~~~

Remembering when you used to liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive for a fandom? Spending time online reading about it, researching about it, writing about it— I possibly spent all the time reading and waiting for Forever Knight to be updated, because somehow I broke my rule of reading “completed” fics only. But I was hooked; NC-17 + Hermione + Vampires? I was in.

Thank you, Delivermefromeve, for the wonderful and angsty hours of reading. I don’t think I ever read any fanfic ever again the same way I read yours.

I finally took the time to catch up with all seasons of Orphan Black, which I had trouble sitting through during its first season… even though I think I might have actually sat through those 10 episodes on reruns without knowing they were 10 episodes. there’s a slump there somewhere between the first 3-4 eps, but once you go through that threshold, it’s a breeze worth the binge-watch. Season 2 flowed better as a viewing experience because half the first part rides on its S1 high and it sets itself for Season 3, which doesn’t glide as smoothly.

But feelings have been had. In terms of Sarah dealing with Beth in a near-death dream sequence that totally reminded me of the Buffy episode, Restless… which interestingly fits into Season 4 of that show where they also deal with the military and conspiracies xD

Feelings were also had because of that messy relationship between Cosima and Delphine, sidetracked by Shay. I haven’t had the fandom feels in so long… and it’s Cosima’s relationships because Sarah-Paul is so impersonal, and Cal -as good as he may be- has been mostly off-screen history. It’s Cosima and Delphine because I’m a sucker for that “I’ll give you up for you” thing, and Cosima with Shay because- man, Shay’s gotta be bad for Cosima’s heart. She seems soooooooooo damn good and caring, it’s gotta be setting up a heartbreak even though it would be “Delphine is your monitor 2.0” and it’s only been freaking 19min. of them together through the whole season.

And man is Ksenia Solo as Shay the type. Yup, there’s a type. Carly Pope meets Juno Temple. lol

I’m sorry, JK. Not gonna play beyond this, but you just stirred a can of worms full of fandom feelings that a lot of people didn’t want to deal with. I hope you didn’t just do it for PR.

For years (and years) I had moved on from fandom. I was fine, we were fine. We (probably) weren’t spending money or time on it. Now you come in to nudge that nasty fandom shipping war of name-calling and eye-rolling. What for? So you can make a quick buck on your next Harry Potter or non-HP endeavor?

I’m aware this is not Coldplay, but I’m taking the liberty to tag it with it. LOL, it’s a cover of The Scientist [MV] — you know the one video where everything is backwards and cool — by Johnette Napolitano & Danny Lohner. I don’t particularly find the cover anything amazing, but the Sholly shippy video (which I haven’t been looking at for a while on YouTube) is  pretty good~ one of the really few ones for Sholly.

Aww, remember when I was crazy for Sholly? LOL

I really like that the creator really took the concept of the video and applied it to the whole concept of her shippy vid, flashbacks and all. It’s a really good way to use all of the Shane/Molly clips on the show… though I wished the video wasn’t sped up backwards. I wouldn’t have minded some slow-mo shots xD

The Harmony Evil Kiss

I know this is wrong.

SOOOOOO wrong, but all this Harry Potter talk has stirred my Shipper brain which had been laying dormant since… the better part of the Order of the Phoenix movie and the release of the last book.

I suffered so much with the last book, it felt like being mocked. Especially in the Evil Kiss part, it felt like tainting all those hours reading those long and thought out essays. It was like all those who supported Harry/Hermione were… well, evil. LOL We were like the Horcrux, tainting a pure friendship with those dark bits in the Evil Kiss.

I’ve made peace with that, in my own way.
