A lot of thoughts. And because I don't like cryptic, even when I think everyone knows what I'm talking about, I'm referring to the posts made by [ profile] thenyxie, and the resulting, well. Everything, really, that's come from it. Because it's not just wank anymore. There's been wank, and more wank, and People Not Getting It. There's been people sharing their stories, people gaining strength from each other, people being touched, inspired, disillusioned, disappointed. To draw an odd parallel, just like Wincon is no longer just about Supernatural... this isn't just about what it started being about. It's become pan-something. Panfandom, pan a lot of things.

And since I'm gonna keep talking about it, and linking to it, and talking about other things, I'm gonna jump under a cut now, just to be safe. Back here there will be discussion and links that may be triggering. )

For the past few days, I've read. And I've read, and I've read, and I've read some more... )

Stakes, and why it matters when they don't matter. )

And then there are the people who restore my faith in humanity... )

Wincon again, the scary people who kidnap you from the swingset, and thank yous, to ethrosdemon and coiledsoul in particular... )

I'm tired. I've read a lot over the past few days, and I feel wrung out by it... and that's just from reading people's accounts, people's stories. Seeing people's pain and frustration and rage and wisdom poured out. I feel older, smarter, and I feel dumber. I feel sadder because of the things I've read. I feel hope because of the things I've read. And because of that hope, I want to end positive here. Thank you. Thank you for the people who have shared their stories. Thank you for the people who've stood up and said that things that are not okay are NOT okay. Thank you for the people who step up to back up the people who aren't in a place yet to be able to be the one who stands up. Thank you.

Just thank you.

When I first ventured into fandom, it was through LOTR (FPS and RPS), and Harry Potter. I was never very big in either of them, since I never produced anything, betaed anything, or, to the best of my knowledge, commented on anything. God, that's so embarrassing. It's even more embarrassing that I never commented on anything because I was too shy. It's the lamest reason I can ever think of, but even though I have always been delighted to get feedback that is simple as 'thank you' or 'i liked this', I couldn't ever leave just that. It was either big, long comments, or nothing, and I was too shy to leave the big ones. Anyway--digression is digressing. )

So, yes. My thoughts on fangirl(boy) migratory patterns. Yours?

(Oh, yes, and totally unrelated, because I know someone on this flist was asking--I've updated my [ profile] jay_bean journal, and posted a tummy picture from about a month ago. The link is here if you wanted to see my nineteen-week twin tummy)

Spoilers and commentary below the cut:


And now, it's time for some General thinky-thoughts on Supernatural... actually, not just Supernatural. Supernatural, Heroes, and just... Jay-fannishness.

Warning--behind here lies Opinions. I think they're unpopular fandom opinions, but I've started ducking and covering so I'm not sure. Do I have to warn for unpopular fandom opinions if they're positive? Scary. )

Two ear infections in two weeks. Which fate did I piss off, and what kind of gift basket will make things up to them so that this doesn't happen again, please, because OW OW OW OW OW! I made it to church for the first time in ages, and I had to leave after the sermon because the volume from the singing was making me just about cry, it hurt so bad. And not because they sucked either--these are Lutherans, and they've got pipes.

Over an hour in the walk in clinic later, I've got my ears flushed, I'm out of pain, and I get to go home with the instruction to blow dry my ear to avoid infection. Ah, modern medicine. Now I'm off to dinner with my in-laws (they're German/Norwegian Lutheran--dinner means lunch), and then an engagement party for a cousin, after which I am coming home and curling up in my chair and not leaving for the whole day. Because OW, damn it.

In other news, I was working on answering stuff for this meme, and I kind of accidentally turned the SPN one into an actual ficlet, or whatever you call something that's over 500 words and less than a thousand. Um. How the crap did that happen? I'll post it later today or tomorrow.

Okay--off to do family stuff. Happy Sunday everyone!

I'm going to bed soon. Now. Soon. Very soon. This isn't even late for me (3:45), and I slept for 11 hours yesterday, how on earth am I so tired? Gah!

I've got stress on all sides, and I really need to just write some of it out of my head so it stops swirling around up there... possibly not just now though, when I'm practically propping my head up against the wall to keep my head up.

I am still irked because I spent most of the day reading a 27 part Supernatural fic... really, really good, plotty genfic, which is one of the best things about the SPN fandom. I'm all over the slash, het, RPS and Wincest, whatever, doesn't matter, but good GOD, SPN can bring the good gen (this, btw? Not the part that has me irked). I get to part 27, and only then somehow realize that it's a WIP.

I am ALLERGIC to WIP's! Unless I know the author really well or have been following them long enough to trust that they will finish writing the thing, I am just NO. I got burned so many times in LOTRiPS that I finally learned my lesson and gave them up, if only to keep my brain from melting when they get abandoned. And this one's been IP for over a year, so I am now terribly fretful because it's GOOD. This is gonna bug the hell out of me.

Oh god, so tired. Sleeping now.

ETA: The story is In Reverse, by sodakey, and I do really highly recommend it... it's got great characterization, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it all of yesterday... I just want to know what happens NOW! *weeps*. I do not handle cliffhanger moments well at all.

I've been slowly getting the Academic Husband to watch episodes of Supernatural with me... it's taking longer because he's not the mainline an entire season in a day or two type, like I am... he likes to watch one episode, then wait a few days, watch another. Episodic network television is MADE for people like him, I swear... I don't even think he minds hiatuses. He claims it's comic book training... having to wait a whole month for the next GI Joe and Captain America, back when he was a kid. Makes me nutsy.

Anyway--we've made it as far as In My Time of Dying (and don't even get me started on the fact that it took over a week between watching Devil's Trap and watching this--it was on a CLIFFHANGER!) and we were talking about it afterwards, and I was trying to taunt him into watching more episodes by saying 'but we must find out what it is that John whispered in Dean's ear!'

Academic Husband: *in John-voice* "Dean... we really could have afforded cookies all those years."

I only kicked him twice. I think that was restrained.

I'm just rewatching SPN from last night, and although there's a bunch of actually, thoughtful stuff I could come up with, or commentary on the hot, or the whatever else, right now, I'm stuck with just one thing... )
linden_jay: (Supernatural- Sam Winchester)
Oh my lord, why am I still awake? *cue whining*

I'm just waiting for the AH to stop hitting snooze so I can go crash for a few hours--if I manage to fall asleep before his alarm starts going off, I don't even hear it. If I miss that window though, I have to stay up until he actually GETS up, which is usually when I all of a sudden slide into omg must sleep NOW mode.

Insomnia. Fun. Only not.

I've been watching Supernatural with the AH, even though it freaks him out, and we've just gotten up as far as Shadow, which has got to be one of the most Vancouvery episodes ever... talk about making me homesick. From the opening scene with shredded-by-MOTW-girl, it's just scene after scene, location after location that are familiar as breathing to me. )
