I am usually not home, and if I am I am usually not on a computer. It is far easier to access my tumblr or my twitter from my phone.

And I am finding that it is far easier to be in fandom on tumblr, because I can be more a more superficial fan, meaning I love characters and care deeply but don't get get pissy when a show doesn't go my way. I don't have to have a discussion about anything. I'm looking at you, the entirety of the Walking Dead fandom, because honestly. There is a reason why things are happening the way they are, and as a person who finally broke down and read all of the comics recently...the television series is pretty damn brilliant to be doing things they way they are. It's fabulous.

And H50, first there was wank with Jenna dying, which, okay, I liked her and was sad. And then there was wank about Lori existing, which. Okay. Whatever floats your boat, or...doesn't, in this case. But to see the same people bitching about Jenna dying, Lori existing, and then Lori leaving? Ugh. Make up your mind. You spend every episode pissy about McDanno not being on screen due to Lori, and then she's gone and then you suddenly loved her?

And Supernatural, my God, no one is ever happy with it anymore. I scroll past all episode commentary and watch it with RL friends who are just as happy with it as I am.

But, basically: fandom is happy for me. I care, but I care quietly and happily and, well, deep enough to read fic and flail about news or pictures or actors and actresses, but I don't care enough about it to let it make me angry.

To my Teen Wolf friends, I'll get back into the fandom soon, but to answer a few things! I know a couple of you guys messaged me about the Big Bang, and I meant to get back to you guys but completely forgot. Long story short: three people finished their fics, and one of them was myself. So there is that, which is kind of why it never happened. We had a lot of artists sign up, but with barely any fics, it seemed pointless. It was a difficult time for me to manage it, as well, since work was kicking my ass.

I am going to go mess around with [livejournal.com profile] teenwolf_slash now and add tags and junk. June 3rd!

Ah, you pretty much do fandom like I do. I mean, I bitch about things sometimes, but I don't take it seriously in the least because where's the fun in that?

And I'm glad I'm not the only one still enjoying Supernatural! :D

So yeah, I'll just keep flailing about Teen Wolf and the Losers with you on tumblr, and hope things calm down for you soonish!

There is so much going on right now that I kind of feel like taking shows so seriously is a waste of, idk, my emotional fortitude. I can only give so many fucks, and if I lose them all to a show then where will I be when something in real life happens, like birth control and insurance legislation or, you know. Something that actually matters?

I love Supernatural! I mean, sure, somethings made me frown or even cry, but that's because it's good television and because I care.

We still need to make a date to watch the Losers togetherrrrr because I am terribly excited about it.

Yeah, I hear you. Why stress about something that a) you can't control, and b) isn't real? Fandom stuff is supposed to be a de-stresser!

Yes, exactly! All the stuff that's happened this season has been awful, but I realize it's necessary for what the writers are going for. It makes me wonder how things are going to be fixed. If they're going to be fixed.

And omg, yes! I don't know if you got my last email about it, but yeah, I'm pretty available for whenever.

I miss you on here. :( And just in general. And, as usual, I wish the con was, like, tomorrow, but also because work is kicking my ass. Though not in the same way yours is. I love you, boo! ♥

I forgot about Teen Wolf! I didn't, like, miss another season, did I? I NEED TO SEE THAT SHIT.

Also, yeah, I enjoy fandom a ton, and I do believe most of it is awesome, but I also stick with the awesome majority and ignore the rest. It makes life better.

Random, sort of: What's happening with photo ops and shiz? Just wondering if we're doubling up on any, or whatevs, because I figure I should put myself in more credit card debt soon, lols.

Nope, haven't missed another season. It doesn't come back until June, alas.

Aww. :( But at least I didn't miss it!

Yeah, what Aisha said, you didn't miss it yet! :D

I just feel like, idk, if I care so much about fandom, how much do I have left to care about my actual life? It used to be for me that I cared about them in inverse proportions, which worked when I was depressed and into avoidance, but...that's not me so much anymore. So. I don't know, lol.

I think that I will just do the individual photo ops this time? I mean, it makes sense right? alksdhpoaUHFPQEKJQOJAK; khdfoqeihf;q

That's good, though! And I've honestly always wondered how people keep up with everything in fandom, because I've never been able to, but I guess it's because they've done the inverse, too. Idk, idk.

Which ones are you getting? I'm trying to decide how much money to spend, so I'm asking you, in order for you to tell me to spend it all, per usual.

You said everything. I really don't get upset about fandom things, I love and care about the characters but I don't do these "things", what upsets me is see people bashing and complaining and not respecting someone else opinions.

About the big bang, it's sad that people didn't wrote more stories, It would be nice to have a lot of stories to read ^_^

I hope life is being nicer with you now :)
See you on tumblr ;)
