"What is significant about fan fiction is that it often spins the kind of stories that showrunners wouldn’t think to tell, because fanficcers often come from a different demographic. The discomfort seems to be not that the shows are being reinterpreted by fans, but that they are being reinterpreted by the wrong sorts of fans - women, people of colour, queer kids, horny teenagers, people who are not professional writers, people who actually care about continuity (sorry). The proper way for cultural mythmaking to progress, it is implied, is for privileged men to recreate the works of privileged men from previous generations whilst everyone else listens quietly. That’s how it’s always been done. That’s how it should be done in the future, whatever Tumblr says.
But time can be rewritten. Myths can bend and change. Something new and exciting is happening in the world of storytelling, and fans are an important part of it."

no really anderson’s theory of sherlock using a bungie rope is framed as less ridiculous to moriarty and sherlock planning this and kissing.

a fucking bungie rope and a replica face mask put on m’s body and john being hypnotized into a trance while his watch is turned back and the body is put in place is made to seem less ridiculous than possible queerness.


#like incase you weren’t aware the media you’re consuming is really gross #this show is so deeply homophobic i can’t even deal #the reactions to both scenarios was ‘oh come on’ yes #but anderson’s theory was absolutely given more room to be considered seriously #while the ‘fangirl’s (a term i’m sure they used in the writer’s room) is IMMEDIATELY ridiculous #like the force of anderson’s reaction was almost violent. hm. interesting. (margo-eve)

wasn’t that episode 50% the plot of v for vendetta?

While cleaning out my room for my move to my dorm this month, I found these paperchildren that I made a while ago and forgot about. I have no use for them and my IRL friends already have a ton of my art, so I figured WHY NOT HAVE A GIVEAWAY? No idea if anyone will actually want these, but I hit a follower milestone of sorts a while ago and did nothing about it, so it’s a good time to do it. 


  • Reblogs and likes both count!
  • You can reblog up to three times a day until September 1st, 2012.
  • I’ll be using a random number generator to pick the winner.
  • You do NOT have to be following me, but if you like this stuff we’ll probably get along and I like people so come say hi?
  • Keep your ask open so I can come tell you if you won or not.


  • There will be 3 winners!
  • First place will get their choice of any 3 paperchildren.
  • Second will get their choice of any 2 paperchildren, minus the ones that the 1st place winner took.
  • Third will get the 2 paperchildren that are left.
  • Shipping is worldwide!

if for some reason you like these but don’t see a character that you want, or if you wanted one but didn’t win, contact me on my art blog and we can discuss commissions and such. I’ll draw anyone from anything, even if I don’t know the fandom, and I already have some Avengers ones in the process of getting drawn (will probably do a giveaway of those later). so yeah!

On a scale of one to Supernatural how gay is the TV show you’re watching?

#probably about #oh #sherlock

omg guys stawp

okay, I want to follow some more people so like this if you post or enjoy any of the things I tag it with, and I’ll come check out your blog

So, question for anyone who’s bought the Adagio fandom tea mixes: Are they worth the price? I’ve been looking at a few of them that I want, but I don’t exactly have a pile of ten dollar bills just laying around, so I’d really like another opinion. I’ve seen a few people post on how amazing they are, but still. Anyone got anything to say?

does anybody else worry relentlessly about the well-being of fictional characters between movies/seasons/books or is that just me?
