A Shipping News Special: The Destiel Dilemma and Other Communication Problems

So it seems it finally happened - the good ship Destiel was sunk for good (or not depending on who you talk to) and a number of you asked me to talk about it. But I’m not going to, not really. Let’s face it everything that could possibly be said about this has already been said and I will link you to what I think are the best discussions at the end of this blog but first I want to talk about the problematic assumptions that played an important role in this and many other events like it.

Let's talk about Glee, baby: Goodbye Finn, Goodbye Glee

Those of you that have been with me since I started blogging a couple of years ago will know that I was once a full on Gleek. I loved Glee - well when I say I loved Glee I mean I liked Season 1, fell in love with the characters and then had my heartbroken repeatedly as it went down the toilet. It was never really my primary fandom but there was a time when Glee was a big part of my existence. I might have stopped watching, but I don't think you ever really leave a fandom (it's for life), so I put my prejudices aside and watched this weeks episode because like all the other Glee fans out there I needed to say goodbye.

Talking Teen Wolf: Hi From Hiatus and Other Stories

Okay, I know I’m supposed to be on a Teen Wolf hiatus because of the Teen Wolf hiatus (you might call is the howl-atus or you might not, that’s pretty lame) but there are awesome things happening and I just have to share them with you guys. Plus I wouldn’t want you to think that I have lost interest in Teen Wolf… because that is not likely to happen (true love lasts forever).

Recapturing Sleepy Hollow: Sympathy for the Silly

Hudson Valley, New York 1781 – we are dropped into the midst of battle in the America Revolutionary War. I’ve never studied America history so I’m not 100% on what’s happening but I gather the ones in the red coats are the bad guys (in this story anyway). People are shooting things, it’s very epic and rather grander than I would have expected from a show like Sleepy Hollow. The colours are slightly muted just to make it super obvious that we are in fact in the past.
