Every time I post on here I feel like I need to do a fannish orientation post or something, because a) okay yes, usually it has been a while and b) my heart is fickle and no fandom, regardless of quality, can exclusively hold my attention for very long. It's like wanderlust, except with fictional sandboxes.
So. DRIVEBY FANNISH UPDATE TIME. Uh, this is going under a single cut, because all fannish updates are very vague and sans plot spoilers.( Doctor Who, Thor, X-Men )
Also I have now seen two episodes of Mad Men. It is quite good! I'd seen clips on youtube before and knew a whole bunch of stuff about the plot, because that's just how I roll, and never really been that impressed - but this is absolutely a show that needs to be watched more holistically. So much of its most powerful scene are played in this really fabulously understated way, carefully built up throughout an episode to fit both thematically and within multiple character arcs. Meaning only really apparent through context? Sign me up.
