…when it’s been so long since you wrote a fic that you can no longer remember the process of writing it and you can read it anew as if it was someone else’s.
It’s basically the endgame of the ‘I want to read this fic so I guess I have to write it’ gambit

Cosplay count so far:
Glow clouds: 2
Cecils that in any way deviate from the blond vested third eye stereotype: 0 :(
But still! Glow clouds!
Going to the wtnv show in Denver in an hour, so exciiiited
This is amazingly fascinating to me because I’d seen the movie/read the GN but I didn’t get into fandom until the summer after the movie came out, because I was afraid it would be a bad fandom. AND THEN I STAYED UP FOR THREE DAYS READING THE KM.
the fandom as it is today literally started out of irony
after the movie got announced, /co/ spent a lot of time speculating about what the ensuing terrible movie fandom might be like, rorschach/nite owl yaois and all
so as a joke a bunch of people started drawing it and then it EXPLODED and everyone forgot they were being ironic about it
I am so pleased by this information SO VERY VERY PLEASED.
It also explains how, unlike many other comics fandoms, Watchdom manages to be completely separate from the Nice Fanboy Guy (TM) crowd (that unfortunately most of BW seems to be catering to) all about UTTERLY BADASS WOW RANDIAN IDEAL HA HA ALSO WHORES YOU TELL ‘EM RORSCHACH ALSO THE COMEDIAN WHAT AN ANTIHERO AMIRITE? So instead you get all this really subversive fan content and analysis and intense explorations of gender and sexuality and creative deconstructions of all these terrible, TERRIBLE people done so beautifully and yet is also an AU with zombies?
Perfect fandom is perfect.
(Fandom confession I’d read parts of Watchmen ages before the movie came out but never the whole thing straight through so while I was familiar with some aspects of the story like the squid ending I was kind of fuzzy on the details. Like I remembered that Rorschach was this scrawny ugly conspiracy-fed libertarian type but I got him and Dan mixed up at some point so I thought the tightly wrapped trench was to disguise his pudge. Like he was a bulldog sort of dude all short and round and full of growls. Then I went and saw the movie on my own because I was in a new town and unemployed and didn’t know anyone but scraped together enough cash to go take myself on a date and WOW SUDDEN RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE. I scraped together more cash for a copy of the GN and still waited a couple of months before peering hesitantly into fandom and then my life was never the same.)
It does explain so very, very much. And yeah, it really is the best fandom experience I’ve ever had and the only time I’ve ever been so prolific, and I also want to give props to our collective ability to turn the deepest crack into poignant subversive masterpieces, just saying *coughowlbbscough*
Ptolemy Elrington likes to collect old hubcaps, and then he turns them into incredible works of art (via Life Buzz).
ROBOT ANIMALS :D
I swear, the power grid in my area must be constructed out of tissue paper and wishes and leprechaun farts. Second big outage in three days, all because of a little lightning. Ugh.

Look at the notes, people! This post clearly works. Spread the word! As far as we’re aware, people who don’t like In The Flesh are just people who haven’t seen it yet, so don’t deprive them any longer :)

Haven’t had much to say lately, so here, have some pics of my garden. Everything you see was grown from seed. The greens are going wild, I love it.
i want a word for the almost-home.
that point where the highway’s monotony becomes familiar
that subway stop whose name will always wake you from day’s-end dozing
that first glimpse of the skyline
that you never loved until you left it behind.
what do you call the exit sign you see even in your dreams?
is there a name for the airport terminal you come back to,
i need a word for rounding your corner onto your street,
for seeing your city on the horizon,
for flying homewards down your highway.
give me a word for the boundary
between the world you went to see
and the small one you call your own.
i want a word for the moment you know
you’re almost home.
There is a rest stop just inside the North Carolina border coming from Virginia where we always stop and go “Whew. Nearly there.”(via ursulavernon)
