Day 12

What makes you fannish? And by that we mean, what is it about a tv show/movie/book/band/podcast/etc that takes you from, "Yeah, I like that," to "I need MOAR!!!" Is it a character? A plotline? The pretty? Subtext that’s just screaming to be acknowledged?

For me, it has always been, and always will be, about character. Back in school, character driven fiction was called "Literary Fiction" and that's what I read, what I wrote. It was much later--something about a boy wizard and the magical world he lived in--where I discovered that character driven fiction was also called "fantasy" and "sci-fi." That pretty much all genres had character driven stories, whether they had to build the world around them or not.

But, character is so all-encompassing. There are certain kinds of characters (and group of characters) that do it for me. Broken. Lost. Desperate.

While signing up for the ChocolateBox fest, and writing up all the many, many fandoms I requested (seriously, I was super greedy), I realized what all my fandoms have in common. Found families. I am a OMG!Sucker for people looking for (and finding) family, a place to belong, a place to call home, people to connect with and become important to and for.

I am drinking. Again.

And also reading!

You guys, I can't even explain to you how very glorious my Yuletide present is! I want everyone in the world to read it! I want to shout it from the rooftops.

Sadly though, it is one of those books that very few people I know have read--I know, that's what Yuletide is about, but this author went above and beyond because not only did they write me THE SPARROW OMGOMG! They also referenced (per my request) the sequel! So, while there are a few people I know who have read The Sparrow, very few of them have read the sequel.

But if you have. Please, treat yourself right and go and read:

Patrilineage It is Emilio and John Condotti, and Felipe Reyes, and D.W. Yarborough and Supaari, and just PERFECTION! ♥♥

Also, also, I can't believe I forgot to link these to the Fandom Festivus Post of Yesterday! Everything Sounds More Official With Caps. No Lie.

White Collar and White Collar Adjacent Holiday Shenanigans )

Retro Holiday-ish Bromance FTW! )

And this one has nothing to do with bromance, White Collar or the actors that grace it, but it is one of my favorite holiday moments on any show.

I think this is why all my dreams last night had Martin Freeman in them. ♥♥

Holy shit! He's the last of the dudes (okay, he and Abed, but still) there's probably not a chance in hell that he'll win, but COME ON! How cool is this? Also, you should go and vote for him and the others still up. It's fun. So are the gifs an tributes in the comments.
