So...I came on tumblr for the Klaine fandom...and whilst season 3 put me off the show for a bit I'm now back on board but not as obsessed as I used to be.
Outside of Klaine I'm also a bit of a multifandom blog as well as bits and pieces of lifeblogging. Expect anime/manga stuff (my first love), crime procedural dramas (Castle, White Collar etc.), Holmes stuff (I love both Elementary and Sherlock, BTW), Merlin and lots of other things that capture my attention. My most recent addiction is Supernatural which I got so emotionally involved with whilst watching that it is definitely my new BIG FANDOM. I ship the fuck out of Dean and Cas and am pretty positive about the show and the ship. I've also recently gotten into Teen Wolf but, unlike 99% of tumblr, I kind of NOTP Sterek...which leaves me wary of the fandom side since it's so popular. Instead I worship Lydia like WHOA and Stydia is probably my favourite ship on the show, because Stiles loves her almost as much as I do.
As for me-I'm 31 years old, live in Somerset in the South West of England and I work full time for a company that brought my soul 11 years ago and won't let me go! I'm actually a Supervisor for a Builders Merchants (no more details there because I keep my internet life and real life very separate). I'm also asexual and aromantic which means I survive on OTPs because I cannot produce the necessary emotions myself! (Joking aside, I'm an absolute shipper and I'm unashamed of that fact).
NEVER stay late at work to do just one thing.
Otherwise…three hours later…
So torn…because I really like Agent Triplett…
BUT HE’S MAKING MY FITZSIMMONS SHIP TRAVEL THROUGH STORMY WATERS AND NO STOP IT MY BABY BRITISH SCIENCE GEEKS ARE TOO ADORABLE FOR THIS DRAMA
But he’s really cool and badass (and he’s so attractive even my asexual eyes have picked up on it) and the team needs him since Ward is a FUCKING DOUCHENOZZLE NO STAY AWAY FROM MY BABY SKYE!!!
I haven’t finished my foreshadowing spotting rewatch but I really like how they went about infiltrating Ward into the team. It’s probably true that saving Jemma made quite a few fans start to think twice about liking him (so the deception was twofold for both the team and the audience). I also like how it’s hinted that, yes, the team probably has gotten to him a little (but that he’s also been under Garrett’s thumb since his teen years and he probably saved him from his abusive older brother so Ward probably has HYDRA stockholm syndrome issues out of the wazoo).
They probably are going to try using Skye as his emotional lever to get him out of HYDRA’s grasp but I’m not actually sure if it’s going to work to get him fully back on team good guys. Just in the last two episodes he’s already done a lot of things that can’t be easily brushed aside. Whilst I can see them going down the love=redemption road I can’t see it not also involving redemption=death.
I’m not sure what to make of this Canada base. It looks like a cheap set, too, so I’m not even sure if it’s sticking around for long. It makes sense that they would NEED a ground base (refilling planes doesn’t come cheap or easy) but I’m just not sure if this is it. Especially now that Ward is in it.
I am so into this new and expressive May. Give me all the Melinda May and her being herself and not Fury’s babysitter. One thing my still-in-progress-rewatch has done is give me a whole new appreciation for Ming-Na Wen. And my appreciation was already pretty high and wide.
Now…let’s talk about my baby British science geeks.
Oh, Fitz…it’s already well established that you are a jealous little thing when it comes to Jemma. Like, even creepy Asgardian masons calling her pretty get cut of rather sharply. But, holy shit, someone has realised that he’s in love! And, yeah, I’m pretty sure this show is going down the whole miscommunication/interpretation route with regards to the Fitzsimmons drama. And it’s going to be frustrating as FUCK because Fitz’s less than platonic regard for Simmons is much more established/obvious than the reverse. So having really hot and likeable Triplett being interested in her is going to be really awkward for us Fitzsimmons shippers.
(but I have faith…because I’m pretty sure that TPTB are aware that no matter what negative critics this show has received, pretty much everyone loves Team Fitzsimmons in some manner. So I’m pretty sure they are going to at least keep them somewhat stable, even if we don’t get everything we want…ever or yet)
So, I’ve just finished day two and I have lots of feelings about this, FFXIII-2 and FFXIII in general.
You’ve got to be fucking kidding me.
I come back to the internet and both the Glee and SPN fandoms are in the middle of speculation wank.
You know what? I think I’m going to stay out of things and just skim the surface. Despite the frustration of having no internet for over a week, it was really nice to just watch my TV shows without stressing out over fandom and spoilers. When fandom is a chore it just isn’t worth it.
