The Podcasts TANIS and The Bright Session are becoming shows.

Ditto the podcast Lore, it's heading to Amazon studios.

Teen Wolf is becoming a podcast.

Stargate is becoming a teeny tiny webseries.

Lotta format jumps going on.

Hundreds of squatters have been evicted from a house and are causing a huge flap...

That is because the squatters are actually a colony of around 600 bats who have taken up roost in a house, near Romily, Stockport .

Despite the best efforts of the owner to get rid of the unwanted visitors, conservationists also stepped in to help clear out the infestation.

Now, in a bid to help rehouse these creatures, the council has taken the unusual step of building a real-life ‘bat cave’ - a state of the art hut in nearby Etherow Country Park.

The Lawn

I know there are already Imzy Discord servers and many other places we may be congregating, but I haven't found a pan-fandom, pan-fanworks-focused one that isn't full of "Think of the children!" rules.

common purslane growing and harvested

As a kid, Common Purslane (portulaca oleracea) was a weed in our garden and nothing more. It was a few years ago I learned it was edible--which is a woeful understatement. Purslane is practically a super-food.

What Annoys You In Fan Fiction?

It's hot and I'm snarky, let's go!

You know the feel, you find a fic with the perfect pairing and the perfect plot, (or no plot) you sit gleefully down with a drink and...ugh. The things. Whatever things they are. Over use of the word touche, a wall of text, surprise infidelity or MAJOR CHARACTER DEATH!

😤

So, what are your fan fiction irritants?

No real alternative

There doesn't really seem to be anything out there that compares with Imzy at all.

I've tried a few other sites but they're all a bit meh.

This fandom is old and pretty much dead, but I still love the show and just started re-watching again.

Fics, recs, icons, general discussion, meta, news, questions, squee - any content related to the show is welcome here. You are welcome to re-post older entries (e.g. from other journaling sites) as well.

I found this picture from one of my old projects:



I also have plans for a themed holiday tree this year that I will need to do a lot of felting and embroidery for.

Anyone else do fannish crafting?

Some people think they are cute and others find them creepy. Whether you are fascinated or fearful, the bottom line is it’s important to avoid coming into physical contact with bats, the primary carrier of the rabies virus in B.C.

Rabies is a very serious disease that affects the nervous system. It is almost always fatal if not treated in time. In 2016, 61 people in the Interior Health region were treated for potential exposure to rabies.

Fandoms You Fell Out Of

Can't remember if we discussed this over on the Imzy comm, but anyhoo, what are fandoms that you went hard into and dropped out of, and why?

I fell into Teen Wolf fandom thanks to tumblr, watched 3 seasons and four eps of the fourth season, read a TON of fic (Sterek mostly... I should've read outside of that tbh), and then fell out of it HARD. Seriously didn't like it, in part due to fandom wank, but mostly because of the portrayal of Stiles in SO MANY popular fics - it was so OOC, so unlike his TV character, that I got irritated. And it might not have been so bad but it felt like fandom was putting Stiles up on a pedestal, making him nicer than he is on the TV show. Annoying af when he's actually quite the little shit sometimes.

There have been other fandoms I fell out of, though by comparison those were more of me drifting onto different stuff rather than growing to dislike the fandom/fandom content (or I left because the canon no longer interested me, coughSherlockcough).

So, what are the fandoms you broke up with?

The reason I am so adamant about mentioning spoilers is that I really hate them. I accidentally got spoiled last week for a different series I am obsessing about and it nearly made me reconsider whether I wanted to keep going with it. I still get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach when I think about what happened, too.

One more thing, the icons that I posted back in June are all hotlinked to Photobucket. I'm keeping an eye on them. As soon as they disappear, I'll host them here. Did you know that Dreamwidth has image hosting now? Look in the "Organize" drop-down menu.

If you have other links you want to share, comment and I'll add them to the post.
