Seriously this OST kicks ass, how have I not been aware of this before?
Bleh. How make Friend in fandom?
Tradition indicates that I should just start hanging out in the comment sections of people I like but striking that balance of "yes we agree and derive joy from the same things" and "I'm a whole expressive human with my own interests and preferences" is hard.
So I guess the question is less "how make Friend in fandom" and "how to appear befriendable in fandom without giving people instant dipshit vibes".
Also I am very bad at not seeing through superficial friendliness so how make Friend in fandom that doesn't turn out to be a passive-aggressive dipshit?
(Fandom having a high concentration of people who never learned to behave themselves is good because my rough manners don't stand out as much but it is also Stressful when you're maybe finally figuring out how to behave yourself, too.)
Also very few people have comment sections I can hang out in :( I do not enjoy Tumblr or Twitter.
Y'know what, I kind of do want to know what the performatively woke reason for why Wheeljack/Bulkhead is Bad & Inferior as a Wheeljack ship. Not even having my OTP breach the wank threshold is something I take weirdly personally.
Mostly b/c if someone cared enough to make wank about my OTP, that could at least potentially reel in spite shippers. It's weird both being in that place where all you wanna do is write fluffy bullshit (bcus there is none) but ALSO wanna write deep character drives and aaaaaallll of the drama (bcus that especially doesn't exist)
I mean you can only read through the ship tag/fics tagged with both characters on Ao3 so many times, y'know?
The Great (HBO 2020) looks... well, it looks roughly like everything I might enjoy in a miniseries, but with a title like that, finding a torrent... impossible....
Is this the one about Catherine the Great?
Yep, that one. Miniseries' rarely sell themselves to me on trailers alone, but. IDK. There's something about it that makes it look highly enjoyable.
Yeah those commercials almost make me miss living with my parents, who get HBO on their TV...
My folks would probably allow me to borrow their HBO if they still had it, but they dropped basically all streaming services earlier this year to do more work around the house.
Speaking of my folks, my mom almost talked me into letting her buy me a loft bed (because yeah, I do need one) and I'm quite impressed with myself for managing to neither get railroaded into a gift-purchase or turn the whole thing into an argument over her micromanaging my life.
Part me knowing myself better, part her being more aware that she can be overbearing at times?
Either way I also talked to a coworker who might have a loft that's about the dimensions I need so I could be getting one anyway c: tomorrow I will go test out mattresses so I know what kind I need to buy. I've had a spring bed for so long that switching to a foam bed is gonna be weird but I'm like a good 80% sure you can actually get foam mattresses these days that are about as stiff. Which is good. Because I cannot slepe on bed that is too soff
