Dear fic-hating snobs: you can hate all you want, but step the hell off Gregory Maguire while you do it. Thank you.

.

Dear defendants of fic-as-hobby: please stop comparing fanfic to needlecraft. They are not the same thing, at all. Sure, they can both be hobbies. But one is an exploration of the boundaries of fictional worlds, and a contribution to an ever-changing, pretty much infinite collective mythology. The other is an exploration of yarn. I have knit in the past. Believe me, it's different.

.

I think this may have been the overall worst week of regular-season TV since 2004. Wait. Actually, come to think of it, make that 1995. I'm using X-Files' "Anasazi" or thereabouts as a reference point. Basically, it hasn't been this bad since invisible zoo animals tried to trample Mulder and Scully. In my opinion, anyway. :(

.

That said, it just makes me love fandom that much more. You guys rule. We've had such tough times these past few weeks, and yet I have seen such amazing courage, wisdom, humour, flexibility and strength from so many of you.

My family and I have been working our way through Michael Apted's Up Series one disc at a time. We received 28 Up the other day, but I think we're all too scared to watch it. It is so hard to watch some of these kids spiral out of control by stages, knowing this all happened 30 years ago and there's nothing you can do about it. Neil, what will have become of you when I put the disc in? :\

Stemming from [personal profile] thefourthvine's rant about published writers vs the people who love their work and associated comments (especially this one by [personal profile] pandarus), and thanks to [personal profile] iambickilometer:

[community profile] captaincopyright! A community devoted to chronicling Captain Copyright's exploits as he defends whatever rights you think you should have, and protects his lovely girlfriend Inviolate Text from all kinds of villainous folk who would do her harm.

Man, I feel really bad for him having to live in a town full of supervillains like that. Especially that escaped mental patient Ayoo, who has recently taken to wandering around town in a full penguin costume.

(Ooh, see also this comment by [personal profile] helens78.)

What are the chances we can actually turn this into a fandom? :D
