Thanks for your kind words in regards to the loss of my mother. I'm dealing with it better, bit by bit, and I know that I'll be alright.

Alright, sad stuff aside, I realize I hadn't posted in quite a while before my last post. Several fandom things happened in that time. Do y'all want the good news, the bad news, or the worst news first? Sadly, I think they might vary amongst you all.

The Good News: I feel inspired to write.

The Bad News: I'm not inspired to finish up anything I started writing or anything KKM related (*sigh*). Everything has been original, or fic snippets that will never see the light of the Internet.

The Worst News: Somehow, I became a fan of the show Supernatural (I know, I know.

News Better than that previous bit: But not enough to write for it or ship anything or do anything other than laugh at other fans.

The Interesting news: My daughter is now a KKM fan. Her favorite character is Günter, lol, and she calls it "The Yuuri Show" instead of by its name. She also wants to be Günter for Halloween, extra lol. I guess I'll have to ask on the comm where I can find a costume or something.

The Obvious news: I've discovered that I don't like it very much when characters I love die permanently, not even for ~storyline purposes~. A good story is a good story, I used to think - but I'm to a point where I just can't stand it anymore. The City Hunter Kdrama really screwed me up, because two of my favorites died in that. I'm still not over that last HP book, so much so that I refuse to even bother with those last movies or that last book (or really the last two books - in my mind Snape and Dumbledore are not dead LA LA LA LA LA). I can't even bear re-watching Rose of Versailles anymore, it's so tiring and depressing. Maybe I'll get over this hangup, I guess I'm tired of dealing with death and dying even of fictional characters (yeah, and becoming a Supernatural fan was such a good idea, self?).

Oh yeah, I wanted to tell y'all some fandom silliness. Can I just say that one of the best fandom meltdowns I have EVER seen has been happening in the One Life To Live fandom? For those of you who don't know the canon and don't care, all I have to say is imagine a fan favorite character's actor left the show and was killed off on the show, and then was replaced by someone new playing the same character with the excuse of having had plastic surgery to explain why he looks different. That new person stayed in the role for 8 years, played the role differently and got his own set of fans (while fans of the old actor mostly did not like the way he took the character), until the old actor came back and it was revealed that the new version was a fake all along brainwashed into believing he was the original character but is actually a twin of his. Then the fake gets killed off two weeks later. Throw in fans shipping the character with two different women, and KABOOM. It's beautiful, people. Beautiful.
