Welcome to the inside of my mind, splayed out across the internet. This is a personal, fandom blog, although I do reblog on the topics of general humor and feminism. Expect to see Harry Potter, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Firefly, Hannibal, Elementary Cabin Pressure, along with plenty of pictures of Benedict Cumberbatch, David Tennant, John Barrowman... Basically, whatever fandom, hot actor or actress has caught my fancy for the moment, you will hear about it.
"Fan fiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of by the folk."
Henry Jenkins (Director of media studies at MIT)
"If female fans are dismissed more easily, then so are their interests, their spaces, and their primary forms of engagement. Or, said differently, gender discrimination occurs on the level of the fan, the fan activity, and the fannish investment. There is a ready truism that enthusiasm for typically male fan objects, such as sports and even music, are generally accepted whereas female fan interests are much more readily mocked. Likewise, fangirls are mocked as is fan fiction, an activity more commonly ascribed to females. More than that, affect and forms of fannish investment get policed along gender lines, so that obsessively collecting comic books or speaking Klingon is more acceptable within and outside of fandom than creating fan vids or cosplaying. Even the same behavior gets read differently when women do it: sexualizing celebrities, for example, is accepted and expected among men but gets quickly read as inappropriate when done by women."
