Yuletide, the OTW, Old Spice Man, Taylor Swift, Inception.

1. If Yuletide were held right now, at this moment, my Yuletide fandoms would be:
  • Plants vs. Zombies
  • The Room (2003)
  • Old Spice Man (and crossovers with every fandom ever)
  • Taylor Swift RPF
  • Inception.

    2. The OTW is awesome. You should be a member. An OTW member. A member of the Organization for Transformative Works. Won't you?

    3. Old Spice Man.
    Watch this commercial. Nevermind, you've already seen that commercial. Now watch these. I like the one for Anonymous, as well as the one for @pancakehumpr. Sardonic look.
    Now read Old Spice Man/Sassy Gay Friend. After you've had plenty of time to recover from the dazzling perfection around which your universe has had to expand to fully encompass, read Old Spice!Arthur from Inception--no spoilers because that would be unmanly--and then you should read Old Spice Man/Saito, because the only thing manlier than Isaiah Mustafa is Ken Watanabe, and by "manlier" I mean "more cable of fully demolishing the last frayed threads of your willpower so that you can no longer feebly resist the urge to rip his clothes off at this very moment and instead can only fling yourself upon him in a hapless frenzied heap of desire."

    And if there are any more Old Spice Man fics out there, well, let's just say I'm starting a collection. Meaningful Eyebrowface. New numerical item.

    eta, 8/5/10: behold, the zeitgeist hath given us this wonder:
    OLDSPICE-KINKMEME.DREAMWIDTH.ORG.
    THE MEME YOU WISH YOUR MEME COULD KINK LIKE.

    6. aka ha, i lied in my subject line, this entry isn't over:

    no, but seriously, Can we just freaking have a queer main character already, modern media? Can we just freaking have one who gets to be gay and fully sexualized and maybe in a relationship or two, and they're not forbidden to have a real romantic relationship, and they're actually the series lead and not part of a safe ensemble cast, and if they are the lead, they don't turn evil or die a martyr, their lover doesn't get written off the show after sweeps week, and they don't wind up getting shepherded into a heterosexual love interest after their gay lover is killed off, and the show doesn't build their entire characterization around their sexuality, and they're not depicted with intentional homoerotic overtones that get coded as "bromantic" and played for laughs, rather than allowed to be what they are, which is FUCKING QUEER, and they're not hoary chestnut stereotypes as old as the celluloid closet itself, and when they finally (hallelujah) do get to achieve a realistic and well-developed plot outline, they aren't immediately punished with unspeakable violence, and/or the show they're in isn't immediately canceled forever?

    Can we just freaking have one already????????

    No? Not at all? Not even ambiguously?

    oh, right. what was i thinking. it's not like it's the year two thousand and fucking ten, or anything.
