Mt. Fandom

"You're making me feel weak. I need you to make me feel strong."

Wow, that is the way to release your sneak peeks. Take the edge off a really exciting part that happens halfway in early, but reserve something like 4 shared scenes beforehand, plus one for the immediate aftermath, and still leave room for the ending to knock it out of the park.

Oh, this is terrible. I'm never going to get any work done (paying or self-assigned) if I just keep staring at Ben & Ryan all day. Why are you so tailored to my wishes, show? And also doomed? Ugh, the internet chatter for Off the Map is just absolutely dead. TWoP kicked the show to permanent hiatus. LJ ignores it across the board. Even professional reviews are increasingly hard to scratch up, and those of course are extra-short and do not focus nearly enough on my Ship of Dreams, even though it is front and center all of the time. I need to find the eight other people in the world who are watching this show, brainwash them to my shipping views, and spontaneously force a fandom to exist.

Oh, also, I remembered that I was going to watch Prentiss's last episode of Criminal Minds last night, which put a kink in my Mr. Sunshine plans. Briefly. Ultimately, despite being the least funny episode of the series to date, it still won the second half hour, although I compromised by channel-flipping during commercials.
