I can't quite remember what the conversation was about but it got around to the Legion trailer and what the expac would be like when it went live and, naturally, some started being negative.
I was sort of rude but I just let them know it didn't matter what Blizzard did with the next expansion as two weeks in the players will start to complain. And it's true. I've been playing WoW since like 2009 and I've yet to see them release something that doesn't have the bitchers start bitching about 2 weeks in.
I just don't understand the player base WoW has but I'm glad I'm not the one who has to listen to it. :D
Movie Trailer (aka BABY THRALL):
So I am currently downloading my fave fanfics from various fandoms so I'll have stuff to keep me entertained.
As I'm hunting down stuff from AO3 and the net, I'm realizing how much what I use to enjoy is no longer so appealing any longer.
The biggest example of this is Snape/Harry. Back in the day I was ALL over snarry and now I'd rather read them with a father/son relationship than lovers
I think part of it is just that I'm older and have more perspective on life and a better understanding of the challenges that exist for people with such a huge age gap being in a relationship AND a better understanding of the issues of any relationship between a student and their teacher.
But it's also how much more life experiences I've had since I've had my first fandom interactions online and how much that's affected what I "know" when it comes to fics and how I react to them. Does that make sense? *scratches head*
Feels weird to be back to blogging in a fannish sphere after so long in not doing so.
Sure, I've got my tumblr and twitter but (at least until recently with twitter) they've not been really a fannish space for me. More like a fannish lurking place.
I really do want to try to connect with fandom again but I don't feel like I know how to do so.
I've been posting on longformfandom but I'm not really connecting the way I remembered doing so in my younger fannish years.
Which is frustrating as there are so many lovely seeming people out there. Also, I see people who I remember from when I use to be an active from my fandom past 9not close fannish friends just people active back then) and it's comforting to see them but it feels like such a weird thing to reach out and say, "Hi, remember [insert fandom here]?" when it's obvious we've both moved on.
Also, my definition of "fandom" is so much more than just movies, tv, and books.
Like warcraft. That's a big fannish love of mine but it's not one where I have "fanfic" needs. More like, this is what I love let me drown you in it!, rather than oooh STEREK!
Does that make sense? Is this what getting back on the date wagon feels like?
The joys of a middle-aged fan. :PIn other news, I really need to remember how to do the mood icon thingy.
Story of my life.
On my twitter feed I see supergirl love is being shared. Cool.
Mom's watching The History Channel's series about Oak Island. *yawn*
Me? I've started reading a many parts sterek series that I've tried to read many times over the years. Here's hoping I get further then 1/2 way thru the first story in the fic.
Here's a picture from Tahiti:
Oh wait that's a Lionel Ritchie song. :D
Welcome to my blog.
Man, that's weird typing that as I've not really had a true blog in years (I don't count my tumblr account a blog, tbh).
I don't know if I'll have anything worthwhile to say but until I find a place on line that combines all I love about twitter, tumblr, and blogging, I think I'll park myself here.
