Meta Monday: Nerds Shipping Nerds

May 4, 2015
Generated by  IJG JPEG Library

Previous Thoughts on fandom and how it relates to heteronormativity, homophobia, and queerbaiting. Today!: Thoughts on fandom, our personal sexuality and how we relate to characters (Finding a picture to use as the featured image was incredibly easy; I have an entire folder called “things I can’t handle” where similar pictures are saved) Well it’s a day that ends in “y,” which means I have a lot of thoughts about the intersection of fandom, sexuality, and social issues. Because what…

May 2, 2015

Welcome to May (one day late)! For this month I’m introducing a fun new project. If you’re like me then you get really obsessive about what the background is for your phone, tablet, and laptop, and you like them all to match. I also prefer to have a desktop that has a calendar on it for quick reference. But I also don’t want to give up my nerdy joy of having something fandom-related as your background. With that in mind,…

Homework Time: Frodo and Sam Digital Paintings

February 24, 2015

Our assignment this time was to create a series of three paintings that illustrated the passage of time. As I am trying to avoid my work being used in the future for examples, I decided to use this opportunity to spend more time fangirling over Tolkien’s collective works. In this instance I’ve painted three moments between Frodo and Sam over the course of their journey with the One Ring. Overall I am happy with how they turned out, but my…

Now that I am done shaking and crying from happiness, I can finally get my thoughts and feelings together regarding the perfection that was Supernatural’s 200th episode. As was tradition, I met with Risa and Charlie at my house for screaming, hitting each other with pillows, food, and of course intermittent quiet attention to the television screen. So here are six (because who needs a round number?) of the moments that made me really, really happy to be in this…

Burcon 2014 Roundup

November 17, 2014

Burcon 2014 is over, and it was amazing. This year we were able to score some great seats after they added the “Bronze” level tickets. With this we got assigned seats in a pretty good area, fairly close to the stage. As always the convention was packed, was hilarious, and was 1000000% worth the money spent. Also this year I took my first photo-op, with Misha Collins. I look like an egg and he looks skeptical of whether or not I…

Fandom Thoughts #493183

I just have a lot of fandom thoughts and how it relates to heteronormativity, homophobia, and queerbaiting. I think we can all agree that a big part of what makes the collective “Superwholock” fandom (including its separate parts) problematic is the fact that many members are doing the classic straight-girls-fetishizing-gay-men thing. And that doesn’t even touch the source material, which is problematic in itself with how they deal with race, gender and sexuality especially. So I think it’s healthy, honest and…

Getting ready for Burcon ’14, which means I need to do the final update on Burcon ’13. I could probably talk about this for 9348321904321 years. Instead, here is a gigantic gallery.…
