I received a lovely gift for Yuletide! I am so very grateful my writer took on the challenge of writing Deacon/Stu, yay! and it was awesome.

I did a super long post yesterday about various stuff but for some reason which eludes me it's not letting me do cuts, therefore I am going to separate them into several posts that people can skip past, sorry.  I swear, I looked up the instructions in case I've forgotten how after all these years suddenly, I even went back to an old post with a successful cut and copied and pasted the coding, still no.  I have since realised that it's not letting do any coding at all, which is why my vid rec in this post is just the URL.  *kicks something*

Fandom obsession, wheee -  Anyway!  Four weeks, FIVE weekends since I came back from holiday with a new fandom obsession. God I love that feeling, like surfers catching the perfect wave, I love riding that feeling out and willingly let other non essential things slide, like personal blog updates, reading anything at all that isn't Hannibal fic, socialising that isn't convincing friends to watch Hannibal and then watching it with them...and so on.

In my defense,my euphoric fandom obsession phase doesn't usually last long, it tends to depend on the amount of canon and fandom works, and most importantly, an awesome ship. For example I loved Sense8 more than life itself for a while and am looking forward to the next season, but after I'd watched the eps a bunch of times, I read some fic but all the pairings are established canon (yay for canon lgbt pairings), and in fic I am really there for my OTPs getting together against all odds, which Hannibal delivers in spades - 11k fics at AO3 and climbing, yay!!!  Not to mention the eleventy billion gifs and fanworks, and the lovely relationship fandom has with the cast and crew, and the adorable Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelson.

Here, have an awesome REINCARNATION vid, because who doesn't love to imagine their OTPs finding each other throughout the ages.  You don't even have to have watched Hannibal!  Though of course you should watch Hannibal, because it is amazing :)

Ha, I've spent two months procrastinating on my Yuletide fic and finally managed a 2k fic (now with beta), and am FREE to write in my shiny new fandom instead and I've written 2k of Sense8 fic since yesterday already and have no idea where I want to even go with the story yet. Wheee.

I saw a rec for a Sense8 vid which basically said 'I finally found a good Sense8 vid and it's good, and not especially plot spoilery, i guess? in that it doesn't try to tell the overarching plot?

When it autoplayed the next one I wasn't hopeful, esp when it became apparent it utilised the technique of having the characters words audible at key points, but as it happens I loved it because it's all the Sensates helping each other through their problems/traumas and I am ALL about their soul bond. If you're still reading this and haven't seen the show but plan to watch this anyway, what you need to know is none of these people have ever met in real life.

I should be in bed but am, unsurprisingly, watching Sense8. I did graciously allow us to watch a couple eps of Z Nation and an ep of Grimm firs, so we are all caught up on those.

I am very much enjoying this season Grimm. I like the idea of the Wesen Uprising, and love Adeline and Nick figuring out how to be parents together. Is it bad that I am sort of shipping them now? I always felt horribly guilty for not liking Juliet more, though in my defence she was so two dimensional in the first season I thought they were planning on killing her off, so was happy when they finally gave her some plot and loved when she became one of the Scoobies - some of my fave scenes in the show to this day are when Nick and Hank and Rosalie and Monroe and Juliet ere researching Wesen and discussing (and Wu, too, eventually, yay!)

Just now:
Dragonfly - Do you know what time it is?
Me - Yes. Why?
Dfly - 'Cause you're normally in bed by now.
Me - When was the last time I had me a fandom obsession? I am currently blogging about Sense8 and the fact that I am watching Sense8.
