For you will want to strangle people.

Yes you will.


Note: if you're not fond of recent Who or aspects of BBC's Sherlock? I'd advise against going under the cut. (And in case this post eats itself, like it did this morning when I tried to clarify that I was talking about [community profile] fandomsecrets  over on Dreamwidth, well that's what I'm talking about
.)

I does not know what comm/eljay you are referencing (tag has no love) but I can guess doctorwho and this is the main reason why I stay in my happy ignorant bubble and avoid any and all stupid that Fandom comes up with...

*Sobs into tea and slashes ALL THE MEN mercilessly*

*and then adds in River and Irene for kicks*

*SQUISHES*

Seconded. I respect peoples' rights to bash mercilessly on a show that they don't like the direction of, as long as it's done in a padded room where I don't have to listen.

I think I love you.

Heh - if you look now, now that both DW and LJ have stopped trying to eat my frakkin' coding, you'll see that I'm talking about fandomsecrets. The problem is, there's a lot of fun stuff going on there. It's my own lack of discipline. I can't resist checking the posts after the lead post has made it absolutely clear that the conversation is going to be about Who and/or Moffat. I know what they're going to say (it's depressingly predictable.) There are some reasonable arguments, and tons more unreasonable crap. And even the reasonable arguments start grating on me when I read them over and over and over without reasonable conversation being initiated in response. And I suppose I could be the person to initiate the response ... but not in that arena. Dogpiling is an ugly thing.

I also have to avoid things that talk about Rose, too, because of the mindless lovers and the even more horrible mindless haters going at each other, hammer and tongs. I have a wonderful wallpaper I got from someone that shows River and Rose embracing rather ... intimately ... with a title that says "Fuck Ship Wars". I occasionally put it up.

Ohh, FandomSecrets!! There is a reason I dropped that comm a millenia ago. There can be loads of fun, wonderful people and fantastic insights and discussions there - but it doesn't make up for the wank, hate, short-sightedness and vileness that occasionally washes over that comm. UGH.

Dude. Love the THOUGHT of that wallpaper!! *Beams* Good answer, sweetie - good answer!

*HUGS*

I'm not even gonna look. I ended up leaving that place because of that. It really doesn't do anything good for a person's depression when the thing that's helping them is constantly being shit on by the fandom.

The sad part is that so many of the secrets are wonderful, and a lot of the people on that comm are pretty enjoyable to read. I keep telling myself not to get upset.

Yeah, that works really well.

And I know the feeling of seeing something that's incredibly important to my mental health being dismissed. It sucks. Especially when DW - in all its forms - is so life-affirming, so full of wonder, so rich with the love of people like you and me.

Exactly. Some of the secrets can be really great and funny. I've even made a couple of friends through the comm. But I've also got a train wreck level sense of curiosity which always lead to me reading the secrets (and conversations) that I knew I shouldn't look at. :/

Oh, I like that! That's good, that is!

Not having it; I mean I like that phraseology. Heh.

THIS.

A good reason why I had to drop the comm myself. Had to get away for my health. Constant jolts to the nervous system that waffles between happy and rage just doesn't do me any good. And I can't help myself, unfortunately. Stupid knee-jerk OCD...

*HUGS YOU*

I don't have much to add to this (other than a hug), but I wanted to tell you kaffyr that is a beautiful text icon you're using.

Isn't it, though? Feel free to take it and credit iconomicon, which is where I got it.

A+ use of Colleen Moore and Elsa Lanchester. ;) I think this is the only way to deal with such opinion. It doesn't even annoy me, it just makes me laugh.

Oh my goodness, it is Colleen Moore! In my head (and I think in my BB's head, he who gave me several GIFs of her) I think I'd conflated her with Louise Brooks. They look a great deal alike, but now that I think of it, I don't think Brooks did many light-hearted comedies.

And I think you have the best attitude about this silliness. I really need to laugh at them more, and mean it.

I think it is. I am not completely sure, since other actresses sported it. Quite the trend -to which I succumbed for some time before going even shorter... And yes, Brooks did not star in many comedies, she short-circuited her career too soon for that.

Glad you approve!

Brooks was an amazingly intelligent, gifted, unorthodox woman by all accounts (my BB has read a couple of biographies of her); I think she did short-circuit her film career, but she probably would have said (at least in some moods, she would have) that it was precisely what she wanted to do.
