Comings and goings and Anne

Given the state of LJ and the major migration to DW going on, I'm considering stopping my crossposts and just posting here starting pretty soon. I don't want to do a full import. There's a reason I started feeling stifled by my own LJ there at some point.

That said, I have a feeling I'm going to be much more active in the next little while. That's because I've been watching Anne on CBC and am completely taken with how they're bending the Anne of Green Gables canon and changing the characters from those I know from the books and from the other previous films. This past episode (number 7) blew my mind on several levels and there is so much fanwork to be done, you guys. So many things suddenly open for interpretation and I just want to sink on into it.

So I am hoping to scare up a few other Canadians who've had the chance to see it, and want to play around in that sandbox.And soon, when it hits Netlix, maybe the rest of you will come along. Don't expect it to be the story you already know. Expect more.

To that end, I created [community profile] green_gables as a comm where Anne folks can eventually converge. It's literally just a name and an empty community at this point, so I still have to set it up and, you know, let people know it exists... but I actually just went nuts and made like 25 icons for the show that I'm going to be posting there in a minute. So, I guess once I get around to informing folks of its existence, it'll actually have a bit of content.
