in honor of the day sherlock fandom lost its shit for the bazillionth time  
I think I checked tumblr about every half an hour today, just to see people flapping their arms and making noises. Metaphorical noises.

(If you weren't aware of this, the cause was this twitter post. Don't go to the #grapes tag on tumblr if you don't want to be very confused.)

This feels suspiciously like the winter of 2007/2008. You know, when a certain (terriwonderful)* movie was being filmed. I liked that winter. I knocked up my wife that winter. I passed my first comprehensive exam that winter.

I became Amal that winter, actually. Though she took six months to park herself on teh intarwebs.

Anyway, it's a good feeling. Though I am, in fandom terms, something approaching middle-aged (if not an old lady). Probably my position right now is best expressed through this cartoon by my favorite fanartist, [tumblr.com profile] shockingblankets.

IN CONCLUSION, I have not had the emotional energy to play much at f_march_madness, but if you haven't already voted I would like to STRONGLY suggest you vote for the amazing and wonderful Molly Hooper, who suffered the key indignity of having her fucking name misspelled in the poll. Molly is great. You should vote for her. I'm sure whoever she's up against is nice, but Molly Hooper wears underwear with little skulls in bows and pink kitten sweaters and cuts up dead people for a living. She's like Dana Scully with no seriousness at all. She's loyal and smart and strong and she deserves all of our votes, because she's the best. The end.

* I type the first half of the word "terriwonderful." Leigh is leaning over my shoulder. "Terrible," she says. "No," I say, "look." She reads what I wrote. "Terrible," she says. "SHUT UP I LIKED IT," I say. "You're one of very few people," she says.

Aw, I liked it. Mostly. Although I admit there are parts that I'll always fast-forward through - but that was true of #1, too. Also that was that long ago? Wowwwww.

Can you believe how long ago it was?! When Leigh and I dressed up for the premiere, I had to pick a costume for her as s8!Scully, because she was super pregnant. That meant I had to be s8! Mulder, too.

And now my small person is arguing with me about the fact that his old stuffed fox is named Mulder. "I want to give him a new name." "NO, YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED."

Good times.

And awww. Indeed, that is the only name such a stuffed animal can have.

I liked it too. I forgave it any inconsistencies, I forgave it for not being perfect, I forgave it for any other real or perceived sins, because it was a new movie with my favorite characters ever, and there can never be enough of that.

I may get annoyed and disappointed at times, but I can forgive because I love them all.

And this: imperfection is where the best fanfic comes from.
