1) Star Wars fandom is going through the "OMG IF YOU DON'T READ THE NEW EXPANDED UNIVERSE AND INCLUDE IT IN UR META, UR WRONG" phase, and I recognize this is a fandom that predates my experiences and whatever, but also no. I can write my Fin background fic in blissful ignorance of anything but the one movie he starred in and LAALALALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU. #optionalcanon #forever
(I have a friend who earnestly explained to me that the Star Wars option canon was different
because it was all internally consistent and beautiful and also Disney is RUINING it. And I was like, um, I'm pretty sure I read that one book about the married jedi and their babies, which is definitely not consistent and PS episodes 1-3 are canon to me, I am maybe not the fan-type you are looking for.)
2) Have I mentioned I have a roommate who is a Harry/Ginny shipper and sends me goodfic email recs? It's THE BEST. I have a lot of complicated feelings about the Harry Potter fandom, mostly concerning the absolute difficulty of digging for canon-compliant fix. I am a gumbly old canon-fan and I am tired of digging through tags.
3) I have decided that I'm not going to bother to try and see Ant-man or Avengers 2 before seeing Captain America 3. Maybe if they ever get to neflix. But all I really want to see is massive amounts of angst and friendship so backstory doesn't really matter, right?
4) I still have SO MUCH TO SAY ABOUT X-MEN WHEN DID THAT MOVE GET SO CLOSE??? AHHHH.(This entry is also posted on Dreamwidth.org. Feel free to comment on either site. Although my dreamwidth background has space! Spaaaace!)
