*taps mic* Is this thing still on?

Hello! I'm coming out of my self-imposed blackout because I'm just about finished with my deadlines and feel like I can breathe again. WHEW.

1. WALKING DEAD. Holy darkness. I know a lot of people have stopped watching, which is baffling to me. To each his own, I know, but the character arcs are finally paying off in a huge way. This is a long con type show, not simple action/adventure. (But yeah, filled with some unlikeable people, etc.)

2. I wrote "The End" on that massive AoGG/TW fic this weekend. OMG, apparently I only write novel-length fiction now? It's good practice, that's for sure. I still have edits/tweaks to do before I post. I wanted to start posting today, but it's a school holiday and I think I might need to murder my children. But I'll begin posting right after, promise! :D

3. I'm coming to terms with the way people are consuming media/behaving fannishly, and it is slowly elbowing me out. That's just the way it is, and I'm learning to accept that the way I view/want to talk about shows isn't the way most people do, so I may stop recapping. It's just a lot of work not to have interaction. (And thank you to the three of you who continue to talk to me! I know you do it out of loyalty, and I appreciate it.) I'm not shutting down HDJM or anything drastic like that, our Supernatural posts get almost 2,000 likes (WOW, way to go, Vinnie!) and Hannibal is a juggernaut. Sleepy Hollow picked up steam the more people realized we were recapping them, and I'm very happy for their dedicated followers. Just...I have such a crazy life and it's a lot to put into something that goes nowhere. I'm going to see Game of Thrones through this season, and won't make any decisions until after that, but basically I'm saying that I get that I'm not that interesting to read anymore.

(This is NOT a plea for you to tell me otherwise. This is navel gazing and acceptance. It's healthy!)

4. Speaking of healthy, I need lunch. I need a big ol' sandwich hot from the Panini maker. MMMM, GOAT CHEESE HERE I COME. :D

Okay, I have thoughts on this as I'm a rabid fan of TWD.

1. I haven't read your recap yet because I just watched the episode yesterday.

2. I always read your recaps and enjoy them, but barely comment because thinking about the show too much makes me tired. LOL! But true!

3. I can see why TWD fandom isn't an easy row to hoe. This isn't a fun show. I accept that anyone can die at any time (except maybe Daryl - can you imagine what fandom would do if he did??) and set my expectations accordingly. There isn't any ship fulfillment except Glenn and Maggie, which consists of them weeping as they figure out if the other one is dead yet. Good lord. It's deliciously grim, which may not make people want to gather to excitedly chat about it. This is only a guess.

4. The Talking Dead may satisfy a lot of people's need to discuss the episodes. This is only a guess.

PS Did you see the actresses who play Michone and Maggie on The Talking Dead? Maggie was SO tongue-tied and Michone recited her university thesis. Hee!

PPS Congrats on your newest fic. I desperately want to watch Teen Wolf now so I can read it, because you know I love that Anne girl!

As always, xoxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxoxooxox

THE SHOW IS EXHAUSTING. I think we've hit on the problem!! :D

OMG, if Daryl died, the fandom would retreat en masse! (ME INCLUDED.) People really ship Daryl and Carol, though, which is great and kind of interesting to me in that I don't really see either of them as sexual. I'm all over their bro-ship.

OOOOOOOOOH, TALKING DEAD IS A GREAT POINT. Really. Huh.

re: PS: I did!! And I had the same reaction as you, ha! (And the actress who plays Tara was on this week, and no one really cares about her, and she had LOADS to say. Hahaha.)

re: PPS: YOU SHOULD WATCH FOR THE ACTORS. Holy smokes, they have turned it to 11 this back half of the season, one actor in particular. I can't look away. Bonus: I re-read all the Anne books to get the lingo in my head, which is always a great way to pass the time. :D

HI POSH. (hugs you tight)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
