JSTOR is a Harry/Hermione shipper! D:

Actually, I share almost no ships with JSTOR? I guess depending how you define 'ship. I will only accept Poe and Finn if Rey is in there too.

And John/Alexander Hamilton only works if we acknowledge that I can simultaneously ship Alexander/Eliza. CAUSE I SHIP IT INTO THE GROUND.

1) Star Wars fandom is going through the "OMG IF YOU DON'T READ THE NEW EXPANDED UNIVERSE AND INCLUDE IT IN UR META, UR WRONG" phase, and I recognize this is a fandom that predates my experiences and whatever, but also no. I can write my Fin background fic in blissful ignorance of anything but the one movie he starred in and LAALALALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU. #optionalcanon #forever

(I have a friend who earnestly explained to me that the Star Wars option canon was different because it was all internally consistent and beautiful and also Disney is RUINING it. And I was like, um, I'm pretty sure I read that one book about the married jedi and their babies, which is definitely not consistent and PS episodes 1-3 are canon to me, I am maybe not the fan-type you are looking for.)

2) Have I mentioned I have a roommate who is a Harry/Ginny shipper and sends me goodfic email recs? It's THE BEST. I have a lot of complicated feelings about the Harry Potter fandom, mostly concerning the absolute difficulty of digging for canon-compliant fix. I am a gumbly old canon-fan and I am tired of digging through tags.

3) I have decided that I'm not going to bother to try and see Ant-man or Avengers 2 before seeing Captain America 3. Maybe if they ever get to neflix. But all I really want to see is massive amounts of angst and friendship so backstory doesn't really matter, right?

4) I still have SO MUCH TO SAY ABOUT X-MEN WHEN DID THAT MOVE GET SO CLOSE??? AHHHH.

1 - GUYS IF YOU CAN READ THIS, WE WERE REFERENCED ON YESTERDAY'S XKCD.

2 - I've decided I'm not following or watching any of the new Star Wars stuff unless the fandom basically loves it. Because J.J. and I have strong disagreements about how you update a franchise and what is an appropriate white man/everyone else ratio.

Also because I have one friend who was devastated about the mere possibility of de-canonizing the Star Wars expanded universe. And while I'm cheerfully amiable with ignoring any corporate directives in how I interpret my canon, I really feel for the Start Wars people out there. Fistbump of fandom, guys.

Sidenote: The fandom-based panels at Dragon*con '13 were 75% from the Star Wars track, from what I could see, and they were FANTABULOUS.

EVE MYLES IS COMING TO DRAGON*CON THIS YEAR.

I mean, I know she was announced last year and she didn't end up coming but I AM HOLDING MY THUMBS FOR THIS YEAR EVE MYLES SQUEE.

She will complete the Torchwood Season 3 team (wow, I sound creepy) if I meet her, and then it's just Naoko and Burn who are virtually impossible to meet anyway. I really want to meet her and say nice things to her and maybe make spend a ludicrous amount of money to get a picture with her.

Gareth is coming (ALSO SQUEE) and James Marsters. I'm not holding my breath for more Torchwood people, but NGL, it would be awesome. (Oh, wait, and Jane Espenson is coming. She didn't list Torchwood in her credits so she didn't come up when I did Ctrl+F)

In other news, George Perez is due again (♥), Timothy Zahn (I will finish the Star Wars trilogy! I will!), Jim Butcher (don't read him, but I could make some friends really happy), Amanda Connor (!!!!), Ioan Gruffudd (WALES), and MIKE MCKONE. WHAT.

I'm sure there are other people I've missed. The list is very long.

**

As this is my last year for the foreseeable future, I really, really want to hang out with people more this time, so...

HEY FLIST! ANYONE GOING TO DRAGON*CON THIS YEAR?
