what do yall think [20 Mar 2009|09:24am]

Good way to get "real" information out that wont be put on news medias that have poltcal ties, like fox?
Conspiracy theories?
My husbands best friend sends us these kinds of links all the time, and I always take them with a grain of salt but with these times being the way they are I don't know what to think ...

Ten minutes of your time for my thesis? [18 Jun 2008|03:09pm]

Dear fanfic authors,

first of all I’m sorry if OT posting isn’t allowed in this community, but there’s no other way for me to do this; just delete this if it isn’t appropriate.

I’m a fanfic reader and occasional fanfic writer myself, so what did I pick for my thesis in communication sciences? Fan Fiction, of course. I designed a survey to find out more about our writing habits and media use; it takes about 10 minutes to complete.

If you could go here and fill it out, I’d be forever grateful. Of course I’ll publish some of the results at my journal in about a month or two, so you’ll know what happened with your answers.
The survey is completely anonymous; I have no way of finding out who gave which answers.

Please, please help a fellow fan out. It’s only ten minutes for you; it’s a very important part of my work for me.

This has been cross-posted like crazy, and I'm sorry for spamming you guys, I'm just a little desperate, too.

OMG THEY DID !!! [22 Apr 2008|11:49pm]

They slashed Data and Geordi !!! OMG MY EYES MY EYES !!!
here : http://www.fanfiction.net/tv/StarTrek_The_Next_Generation/3/0/1/1/0/305/0/0/0/1/ see stories 4 (I have a doubt on this one but I didn't want to check) and 14 (this one is labeled so) and maybe others as well...

So sad... Data is my favorite TNG character, he is somehow like a child... slashing him with his best friend is so sick... slashing him with anyone is sick, anyway.

For the most part I like other hockey fans... [14 Apr 2008|08:42pm]

[ mood | predatory ]

I was flipping through my interests on my profile [just to see, you know, who else likes Peter Budaj], and the one who had updated their LJ slightly before I had was presumably thirty- or forty-something and who had gone to the Avs' cancer fundraiser thing where all of the players had their heads shaved. She took lots of pictures and whatnot and proceeded to squeal like a teenager over these guys who she's already too old for [for the most part], and then in the comments made herself look even worse.

I don't know if it's just me, but I think it's spectacularly rude to send a picture of your one- or two-year-old son and Player X together to Player X in hopes of getting tickets to a game from Player X. If I'm ever lucky enough to get a book published, the greater part of my family and friends won't be getting free copies, much less any rabid-stalker-fans that I might have developed.

I'm all well and good with the kind of thinking, "Hey, man, if I ever, ever get the chance... He's really goddamn hot, and I'd do a whole lot of things to him" [gods know that I do that enough], but when you're rude to the person as well and are feeling entitled for no particular reason other than your son got his first haircut from this guy... Ugh.

I keep forgetting that they're celebrities because they aren't in and out of rehab every other week, and the biggest scandals they seem to rack up occur when the backup goalie takes over the starting position. And then [at least in Colorado's case] they maybe, maybe make the front page of the local newspaper when they win the Stanley Cup, much less the cover of, like, People.

[08 Apr 2008|04:29pm]

Hello everyone, I am new to this community, and find it a bit intimidating. I have to admit right up front, that yes, I am a huge (dare I say it) fangirl of Harry Potter. I feel that fangirl squeeing over a book is somewhat better than doing the same over an actor or the people in a band.

*ducks* No attacking would be nice. Seeing as I really don't know what a 'scary rabid fangirl' is considered.

I absolutely hate all those people who watch the movies and don't read the books and like to rant about how hot Daniel Radcliffe is on forums I am a part of. We're supposed to be talking about the dynamics of the characters, and what would be considered in character fanfiction. You know who I'm talking about. All those annoying people who invade the websites and post in all capital letters like the crazy people they are, "OMG HARRY POTTER IS SO HOT!!1!"

Those people are who I hate.

Oh, yes. I should probably include this as well. I also slash Remus and Sirius of the Harry Potter series. Most of my fanfiction is complete crap, and I acknowledge this, and tend to avoid posting most of the things I've written. I do like to read some good Remus/Sirius fanfiction with developed, in character characters and a good plot. Like shoebox.

I'm also a huge fan of the Doctor Who series. Most of the story lines are completely amazing (in my personal opinion) and yes, I do really like David Tennant and John Barrowman. David Tennant is an amazing actor, and John Barrowman can sing.

Real person fanfiction scares me. Very, very much.
As does those sick Child/Teacher fanfictions that are very often found in the Harry Potter fandom. Those are the people who scare me (along with the Snarry people).

- Rachael

PS. I hope I didn't scare anyone off too much.

[ mood | confused ]

Hello hello, I am Khajidu and I am a huge U2 fan. (I think you already noticed I ganked my greetings form one of their songs...)
One of the things I love in them (besides their songs, of course) is their very strong and long-lasting friendship, this is why I hate even more when people slash them... with no reason (three of them have families and the fourth one has had only female partners, as far as I know. And one of the three fathers said he was himself "very heterosexual"... and has been married for 25 years. Too bad for Mary Sues and slashers.).
But they did it. Yes, they did. (I didn't dare to look)


http://u2-fanfiction.com/ (there is a slash section)

and marysues reported U2 Mary Sues (check under the "u2" tag)

There is also a U2 forum board where female members claim (or claimed ? I can't find the threads anymore...) one or another of the U2 members theirs...or wanting them shagging each other... (hope they're joking) AND SQUEALING OF COURSE!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!1!!1!!one!!!1!!!withorwithoutyou!!!1!! http://forum.interference.com/ (especially the "PLEBA" section)Thankfully, slash and sex fanfics are forbidden there.


Overly sensative fangirls... [09 Jul 2007|03:01pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

I was browsing through some magazines one day when I came across an interview with the sexiest man alive drummer from Muse, Dominic Howard. It being Dom, it was a rather...strange interview, but the interviewer asked about what his views on bottling bands were, since it had happened recently to bands like Panic! at the Disco and My Chemical Romance. He said that there were some bands that he'd heard that he wouldn't mind bottling himself.

Cut to the next issue of the same magazine.

Letters came in with people complaining about the interview saying how rude it was that he'd say such a thing about My Chemical Romance and Panic! at the Disco. (and, if I remember correctly, someone said the two bands were better then Muse...excuse me while I go laugh and then cry at how tone deaf our youth is apparently becoming). And all the fangirls were mostly pissed that he'd say something like that about MCR, which is hilarious because he obviously wasn't referring to them. You don't invite a band you want to bottle to open for you at Wembley.

Besides, if Dom wants to bottle a band, he'll probably just do it. This was the same man who stole a Slipknot mask and then filmed himself wearing it and screaming "Sit the fuck down!". And he's also from the same band that has, on several occasions, completely messed with a TV show when they were asked to play with the recording instead of actually live.

In conclusion: Beware the overly sensitive fangirl. It's like PMS, only every day of the month.

Orlando Bloom Fangirl Impersonation [02 Jul 2007|10:08pm]

About a year ago I posted a video on YouTube called "Orlando Bloom fangirl Impersonation" just so people could see just how obsessive some of his fans are.

Well I just made part 2. It's a lot more extreme.

Batsh-t Shippers [04 Apr 2007|06:00pm]

Sometimes I think that the discussion forums/communites for television shows should ban all shippers in order to eliminate at least 90% of the insanity in fandoms. Does this scenario sound familiar?

- Romeo and Juliet meet and become friendly co-workers.
Shipper response: "They're perfect for each other! It's love at first sight! The writers of this show are so awesome!"

- Romeo and Juliet share friendly looks and conversation, and display some attraction to each other.
Shipper response: "OMG, they're so eye-f--king each other! I thought they were going to tear each other's clothes off right in the street! Why don't they just admit they're in love?! The writers of this show are good, but I wish Romeo and Juliet would get it on already."

- Romeo starts dating Cinderella. Juliet starts dating Casanova.
Shipper response: "Cinderella is a slut! Why can't he see she's just using him? And that actress playing her is a no-talent bitch! Casanova is a dud. The writers are so stupid to pair him with Juliet. We all know they don't really love those other two. Why are the writers wasting time on this crap?"

- Romeo marries Cinderella. Juliet marries Casanova.
Shipper response: "Romeo is so whipped and Juliet needs to dump Casanova. Why don't they just admit they both made mistakes and have an affair? I hate that other actor/actress. I hate these @#$%# writers. They've ruined the show!!"

I admit that I've joined a few shipper communities because I like the actors involved and I like the chemistry of the pairings, but my appreciation of the show doesn't hinge upon whether or not they ride off into the sunset on a white horse to live happily ever after. I just like well-written drama that is true to the characters, and sometimes that doesn't equate to fairy-tale romances. Toxic relationships can be great for drama too.

And just try to say a nice word about Cinderella, the actress playing her, or express an appreciation of her chemistry with Romeo in a Romeo/Juliet shipper community. Or just try to say that you actually appreciate the canon relationship of Romeo and Juliet as they actually are on the show, ie. just close friends who aren't suited to be lovers. The reaction can be insane! Shippers, apparently, aren't allowed to actually enjoy all aspects of the show for their own merits unless it invovles true-wuv-4evah between Romeo and Juliet. Anything that doesn't fit that narrow category must be despised and insulted at every opportunity.

I really think some shippers live vicariously through the heroine in their chosen pairings, and when anything or anyone threatens their eternal happiness with their television Prince Charming, they take it personally and go on the offensive. It just makes me want to scream, "Just get a life! It doesn't matter who Romeo sleeps with! Get your own boyfriend already and stop whining!"

Rant over. I feel better now.

An unpleasant encounter with a 12 year old fangirl.... [01 Mar 2007|07:36am]

[ mood | cranky ]

So, apparently this girl had heard that, you know, I thought Orlando Bloom wasn't bad-looking. So, I guess she assumed that I was obsessed or something.

She whips out a notebook the next time I see her, and it turns out she has Orlando Bloom trivia questions for me. I thought maybe this was some kind of punishment for admitting that Orlando might be better looking then Johnny (*gasp*).

Sadly, I got all of the questions right. Granted, they were easy questions (What are his tattoos, What colour are his eyes, When his birthday, stuff like that), but I still felt weird that I
I scared her off by telling her I don't care if Orlando has a shirt on or not. Because, it makes absolutely no difference to me if he's fully-clothed or not. As it should.

Next thing I know, she'll have Johnny Depp trivia questions for me. I should never have read that book about him....


Kids these days...

I am very grateful for this community. I really am. Ranting is very fun.

[25 Feb 2007|02:32am]

Hello all! I must say, I'm quite relieved to find like minded people in this world. I cannot stand Orlando Bloom. His fans sicken me and... good gods, he needs to just go curl up in a hole. He's not that 'brilliant' of an actor and, really people, you WILL find a prettier face. And who said that a pretty face means a winning personality?

I'm also a Broadway enthusiast. Most of my time is spent listening to Evita, Phantom of the Opera, Rent, Wicked or Chicago (I haven't had the funds of late to retrieve any more, but that's why satellite radio is there). I will admit after reading a previous post, that I'm an Elphaba supporter, but I have good reason. It is very hard not to walk away from playing a character without an emotional attachment. And I didn't just see the play of Wicked. I read Gregory Maguire's fantastic novel and it's sequel, Son of a Witch.

I read the original novel of Phantom of the Opera before seeing the recent film but the film only inspired me to see the Andrew Lloyd Webber production, which I acted upon.... twice.

People should really learn not to judge an actor or actress by looks. As an aspiring actress, I have learned to watch for technique and talent. Some of today's top actors have some serious looks going on, but little to no talent. Honestly, anyone can be given lines and be told to perform them. But to get on a stage in front of hundreds of strangers and possible friends is really quite scary! A true actor is one who can act on screen and on stage (Tim Curry, Martin Short, Idina Menzel and Julie Andrews to name just a few).

But you don't see screaming fans about the true talent, do you? No. Just Orlando, Gerard (Though it pains me to say it, I find him inspirational), Elijah, and even Johnny to an extent. Correct me if I'm wrong, but look at the decline of huge stars of even three years ago. Brittany just went ballistic and shaved her head, for heaven's sake! Is this what Hollywood is coming to? And if Hollywood is truly a reflection as the world as a whole, I fear for humanity.

Sorry for going off on a tangent, I had a lot on my mind

Finally a show that exposes Bloom for who he really is :D [12 Feb 2007|11:19pm]

The Show Extras casts famous stars to supposedly interact in very funny situations with the "Extras."

In this episode, Orlando Bloom "acts" as a narcicisstic bitch who is obsessed with the fact that he's 'beautiful' and girls love him for it. He tries to convince an Extra that he's hot, but she's just not buying. Classic.

We all know he's not acting though. This is how he really is. ;P

Hi [23 Jan 2007|06:15pm]

Hey, new to commuinty! *waves* I like to think I was never a fangirl, but I suppose after a few posts you'll guys will be able to tell.

I'm not really the type of girl to jump up and down at even the site of my fave actors or whatever, but I can go on a rant about prettyness. I admit I'm a fan of some wincest (never daddycest) and a few other slash pairings like Jack Sparrow/Will Turner. BUT, I CANNOT stand these fics that are all about getting the sex on or people who complain abou their 'faveorite' show just because it's not going the way the want. SUPERNATURAL is a big one, I'm a huge fan of it. Not because of the prettyness (though it helps) or whatever else.

I like it because of the dymanics of the brothers and what they go through everyday in their lives. How seriously messed up their issues can be and how, sometimes their unwilling pacptiants in 'destiny'. But enough of that. I'm sometimes really diguested by the fangirls who get pissed when Dean isn't the focus of the show or Sam gets some ability. Or the girls who hate Jo just cause she's a love interset for Dean! I admit, I'm not a big fan of the girl but it's only because I think she seems to young and not mature enough to deal with the kinda hard relationship no doubt any woman (or man) would go through with a Winchester.

It you don't like how the show is going or a character, stop watching! Don't go around ranting about them! And please, please, please if you like to write incest or slash, DO IT WELL!! If you're gonna pair two people most wouldn't see together give some feel to it. Don't go around writing/saying things just cause the actors/characters are so damn HAWT.

That's my peice.

To Green Day communities:

I realize that news has been rather slow lately after The Saints are Coming and the announcement that they're working on a new album. I know the waiting game can be boring.

However, that's no excuse to have an 8 page discussion on whether Billie looks better with blond hair or black hair. Or a 10 page discussion on if he's gained some weight.

Leave the poor man alone.

And I don't need to know what you'd want to do to any of them if you were stuck in an elevator with them. Most of you are jail-bait and Billie is married.

In conclusion: Shut up. Nobody cares. Get back to discussing the new album or other related/amusing/off-topic such things.

Thank you.

More Supernatural fangirls who make my brain hurt... [29 Nov 2006|11:35am]

Psychic Sammy hate:

They say that giving Sam psychic powers makes him less real. They hate everything about him having psychic powers.
You know, I find their whole conversation silly. This show isn't based in reality! It's about two guys who shoot ghosts (who are already dead) with rocksalt, in order to kill them again!

The title of the show is SUPERNATURAL, it's about two guys fighting SUPERNATURAL things. *squints like O RLY Owl* It's not supposed to be realistic. It isn't realistic in any shape or form.

If it were realistic, Sam and Dean would both be serving hard time in jail.

Why are these people watching? They're angry because the show doesn't match what they had in mind, I'm guessing. Most of them wish Sam had no psychic powers, and if he didn't, the main story arch wouldn't be there. *squints again*

It doesn't make any sense.
You watch a show called SUPERNATURAL and get angry and resentful when one of the characters has a SUPERNATURAL connection.

If they want realistic characters over coming realistic things, they should go watch Everwood or Dr. Quinn and stuff like that. This isn't the place for such things.

NEWS FLASH: Sam and Dean are make believe characters in a make believe world. More at 8.

Jensen Ackles fans scare me... [02 Nov 2006|10:24am]

They really do:

Look at the length of the Jensen Ackles thread as to compared to everything else on that forum.
Over 500 pages.
Jensen Ackles fans are scary and crazy.

If I told them who Jensen Ackles reminds me of, I'd get flamed so fast.

They are only watching Supernatural for Jensen Ackles; if any other actor were in the part of Dean, they wouldn't careless about the mytharc or the show for that matter. They don't care about the mytharc now.

a fan-fic rant [27 Sep 2006|11:12am]

As pointed out below in another post. I don't know why there is a need to slash everything that walks and talks on television, movies, and in books.

The worst of the lot are the Supernatural fans.
I'm sorry, slashing Sam and Dean is sick enough.
Slashing Papa Winchester with his two boys is just blows my brain. WTF?
They call it Daddycest. So there is Wincest and Daddycest. *rollseyes*

I get the same excuse every single time:
It's just fantasy! It's just for fun! It's just make-believe. The internet lives inside it's own bubble, we'd never approve of it in real life. We like it cause of the pretty.

So, in their make believe world, incest is hawt. When in any other situation (in reality) they'd be cueing up the dueling banjos song and going EWWWWW that's gross and nasty and more and likely making ruthless fun of the person invovled and feeling otherwise awkward and freaked out. There would probably be mentions of taking a few showers and vomiting. I don't get it.

*Cue the I am My Own Grampa Song*

I don't understand:
Slashing kids with anyone. (Sick...Harry Potter fandom I'm looking at you.)
Slashing family members. (Points at Supernatural fandom.)

Apparently many of these people haven't watch the X-Files eppy Home.

I think there is some contest on the internet to see who can write the most smutty, completely farked up fic possible. It's like John Water's Pink Flamingos, but instead of being the most dirty people alive; it's, who is the most nasty fan-fic writer around.

Cause of the Supernatural fic, the show has been mildly tainted. As of tomorrow, it comes back for the second season, but I've lost some of my interest in it, and much of it, is due to the fandom, which complains when Dean isn't the center of everything. They want Supernatural to be The Dean Show. Forget Sam or anyone else...;;>.> It's all about Dean Winchester. Sam is ingored and bashed every step of the way. I call them Dean!Zombies.

You know what's better than sleep? Half-assed rants. True story. [05 Aug 2006|12:07am]

Ok, so admittedly I don't end up being a fan of things other people fanpuppy over. I mean, when was the last time Einstuerzende Neubauten had screaming, fainting fans with no pubic hair and too much makeup? Especially in America?

But when I do fall into a fanbase that actually has fans in it-- I go for the big ones. I'm a loyal and devoted fan of *NSync, Led Zed, Black Sabbath, Rammstein, and god forbid, Eminem. In other words, I'm for the realgood and the realbad and not much in between. Language is not an issue.

But you know what bugs me?

The one thing that after all this time still gets to me?

Uninformed fanbrats. Of other bands. The very same ones that tell me the groups I follow suck monkey balls and then procede to inform me of the wonders of whatever the hell is cool /this/ week.

I am emotionally reimbursed though.

They must spend massive wads of cash on CD's they don't even like a few months down the road.

Love has no meaning anymore [04 Aug 2006|11:34am]

[ mood | confused ]

Why is everyone so obsessed with pairing up characters (be in yaoi, smut, etc) in just means to have sex? Don't get me wrong, I have against against it in real life-- in fact, it's a part of life-- it's just it doesn't appeal to me to fics... Maybe it's because I have a decreased libido, I don't know, but sex isn't the center of the universe like so many people enjoy writing about.

Mary Sues; their main reasoning is because they crave to be sexually intimate with a character they know they can't have in real life... So the writer creates a fictitious version of themself merely for the fact of indulging in their fantasy and screwing their crush!

In the end, it's all about the lay. Men: I thought they were more into sex, but women... Women have really gotten out there. Did you know; men will sit in dark corners broading silently, giving out money to dancers in the utmost quietiest of ways possible. Whilst women will go in groups; shout, yell, make noises of pure happiness and wave money in the air like this is the best night of their entire life!

Yaoi/Yuri: Mainly the pairings are of HAWT celebrities who stared together in... what, one movie... and now the writer, because so obsessed with the yaoi craze, just has to do it because it's the "IN" thing. So many kids are doing it! Let's jump the bandwagon and follow! When Batman Begins came out, everyone suddenly paired up Batman/Scarecrow because it was "two hot male actors." Don't even get me started on realperson slash. I don't understand that weird phase whatsoever!

Wincest: (Dean & Sam Winchester from "Supernatural") Just... What the hell?!? Thanks for ruining the show!

Wonkaslash: Oh, just what we need! A strange hermit now having sex with underage kids; mainly male and all Johnny Depp. Let's encourage pedophilia.

---Has anyone seen that comic of Arthur (That Aardvark in that kid's cartoon) having sexual intercourse with his mother? Oh god, my childhood has been forever stained with the horror!!!!

:) Thank you for letting me rant.

It breaks my heart when a male actor becomes rich and famous...not because of his acting abilities but...per se his swooning abilities. It actually makes me sick. I recently saw Pirates: DMC and it was a wonderful movie, save a few character istics. I'm not going to say Orlando's this type of actor. I'm not going to say he switched back and forth between the same facial expressions the entire movie. I really won't say many of the girls who saw it only saw it for him and his looks. And I most definitely will not say that Orlando Bloom can NOT act. Of course not. But I will say, that hopefully, these actors and their swooning..I mean..acting abilities will actually prove to be something worth watching. Someday.

There's a lot of Johnny Depp fangirls as well. I'm not sure if they are as maniacal as other fangirls, but they are indeed out there. Some of them do only see the movies for his looks, but you know what? They have something else to look forward to: Good acting.

So Please don't hate. I'm not a professional critic and my word means nothing, but hey.

Maybe I'm just a cantankerous asshole, I can't be sure. Did I just turn into one when I shed the "teen" suffix?

I'm sure I'm not the only one who started in the fanfiction world at the age when most of it could be found on poorly made Geocities sites and archives with barely two or three stories per series. I liked those days because I barely knew what I was reading and I was too stupid to think about how ridiculous the idea of all 5 Gundam pilots taking a bath together seemed to anyone but the people reading it.

Now it's mainstream, sort of, and it has been chopped up and handed out in sections. Someone handed the terrible, inept fangirls the "drabble" section. When I find that person, I will kill them.

Drabble is code for crap.Collapse )


I can't even tell what tense that's supposed to be. Why? Why am I so enraged by the mere idea of a "drabble"? Maybe it is the disregard for effort that bothers me... like some young girl was sitting alone, listening to the radio and all of a sudden came up with a scene in which the previously mentioned young men are relaxing... somewhere. I didn't read all of it.

That is called a thought, or a headache with pictures, and you build upon it. You don't just write fifteen lines of nonsensical dialog and proclaim it done!

This is why I don't even venture into the world of fanfiction but once every few months. I just can't stand it anymore. It used to be the privileged few were archived and lauded and now anyone with a keyboard and Notepad can vomit their masturbatory fantasies onto the Internet.

Fangirls should not be allowed to form communities where their crap may gather.

POTC: Sooper Speshul Seekrit Fangirl Edition [10 Jul 2006|07:09pm]

[ mood | annoyed ]

Hello, all fellow seekers of sanity!

As we know, the Pirates of the Caribbean fandom is rife with all things fangirl. The fanfiction, in particular, is quite awful, with almost every story being how a fabulous new original character falls in love with Johnny Depp Jack Sparrow or Orlando Bloom Will Turner.

heave_ho, the POTC Mary Sue report, mocks the bad fanfiction that appears daily. (Once, a fangirl tried to post a "story" that consisted entirely of the words Johnnydepp Orlandobloom rock!)

Feel free to drop in, laugh, or tear your hair out. In fact, I'm in the process of writing a fangirl parody. A while back, potcsues jokingly referred to a Sooper Speshul Seekrit Fangirl Edition of PotC that all of the fanbrats watch before writing their fanfics. I decided to have a little fun with this concept. Now, we can all understand what fangirls see when they view Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

Feels good to know that theres one less fangirl in the world. Also, I think some Anti-Mary Sue pics count as anti fangirl pics, right? Since Mary Sues are made to fulfill the dream of an airheaded fangrrl.




The next two are mine. One recent, the other is OLD and lazy. You can obviously tell which is which.

I stumbled upon this community while doing a "Pirates of the Caribean" interest search. How ironic. heh. Of course, after reading two entries, I realized that I absolutely had to join. Just recently I was ranting about fangirls. Now granted, I think everyone has fangirl-ed at some point in time, but when it's all the time, it kind of makes me throw up a little.

With the recent release of Pirates of the Caribbean, I feel that something needs to be said about the fangirl following. *ahem* Let's go over an example conversation, shall we?

"So, you think he's a good actor then?"
"UM, YAH, DUH, HE'Z HOTTTTTT!!!2-1!!!"
"Name another movie he's been in."
"Good job." *walks away to go throw up*

And please, ladies, I'd rather not start on Orlando Bloom, because typing like that requires some bit of effort, and it's an effort I'd rather not dumb myself down to make.

Johnny Depp is an amazing actor, and seeing him in the "Pirates" movies proves that to me. He throws himself full force into the role of Jack Sparrow. Yes, it may seem like I'm fangirling, but I admire him. Every role that he plays is different. As an aspiring actress, I feel that he's a rolemodel of sorts, and when people fangirl about 'HOWHAWTHEIZOMGZZZZ'.. I can't help but to want to explode into thousands of little pieces.

I'm sure I'll end up posting again sometime soon, but this is all I have for the moment.

Let's get a few things straight before I begin. I am a Broadway enthusiast. I watch the Tonys, I own too many cast recordings than is healthy for a sixteen year old girl, the wall behind my bed is my little shrine to musical theatre, I worship Sondheim daily, the whole nine yards. I wouldn't call myself an aficionado, by any means, but I'm a true addict. 

I wish they would stop making movie adaptions of musicals. And I'm about to be the snooty, elitist fan that I usually hate, but I feel as though they're ruining everything I love about the theatre.

Chicago was fabulous, it really was, and it was my introduction to the show. I was, oh, eleven when I saw it and had a very vague familiarity with theatre. I knew that I liked the musicals I had seen and wanted to see more, and that I liked to sing, act and dance on stage. The movie was completely thrilling and amazing and I saw a touring version of the show in Toronto within a year. That single handedly set me off on a road of learning and discovery, and has made me into the nut that I am today.

What a great success story, huh? Surely with the recent movie adaptions of Rent, Phantom and The Producers, other young girls are having similar experiences! Uh, no. No, they're not. 

Once upon a time, if I told a class full of kids my age that I liked musicals, I'd be met by stony stares, followed by mocking snorts of laughter. Now?


Shoot me now. 

I will grant you, there is the odd teen girl who, like me, worships Sondheim, studies Fosse, mourns Ethel Merman and dreams about her own revue. But they're becoming few and far between and I'm sick of nodding my way through another conversation about who's better, Elphaba or Galinda, while thinking that I'd rather be listening to 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

In short, a message to fan girls: Rent and Wicked are great musicals. But they're not the only ones in history and just because you love them, that doesn't make you an expert on all things Broadway.

And please, no one post any comments about how much you hate musicals. I don't want to deal with it.

Beautiful! Another place for me to rant... [11 Jun 2006|12:57pm]

Now I have a place to commiserate with others over work, pets and fangirl stupidity. Excellent.

What actually pushed me to join was the rant about fangirl gamers. Oh holy god. I joined one community for fans of certain characters from Kingdom Hearts 2 and it's like they couldn't avoid being idiots. I will admit I am a fangirl myself, and I am prone to moments of stupidity. However I have the good sense to admit to myself that I am capable of acting like a fool. What neurons aren't firing to make them think it's alright to behave the way they do? Like the shippers that have decided JK Rowling does not understand her story because- well obviously Harry and Hermione were destined to be together from the beginning, and Jo just can't see it.

They post the most inane nonsense and receive scores of replies praising their genius. I don't write fanfiction and what little fanart I do produce I basically keep to myself with small exceptions. I appreciate that there are people out there with way more talent, and I'm not saying some of them don't deserve praise. But let's be realistic people: One Haiku about Axel and Roxas is special. Four or five is pushing it. "Over 50 and growing" is frightening. Basic rules for being a good fangirl:

1. For the love of god stay in the same tense.
2. The character's name is just fine. Severus does not need to be called Sev.
3. Sex and love do not always go hand in hand.
4. Conversely everything doesn't has to be "non-con" or angst.
5. Gay marriage has become legal in many nations, and even here it's slowly taking hold. This is awesome, but I can guarantee with every fiber of my being that incest will never be a popular family activity. If I am wrong may Fred and George personally strike me down.
6. Men cannot become pregnant! It's a wholesome idea, but they lack a nook or cranny to grow a baby and certainly a orifice through which one could exit. Unless you want to imagine an Ass Baby then leave that to the women and odd seahorse anthros.

Ok! I'm done ranting for now. Hello everyone! :D

Hello, Hello, I just joined and I'm happy to do so.

ALRIGHTY. Everyone familiar with ORLANDO BLOOM? Yes? I abosolutely have to say, after having spent 7 years with my best friend, she has turned me into an anti-fangirl.

Hm...this started when Lord of the Rings came out...Collapse )

But I'm glad there's communities like this can promote anti-fangirlness. So I thank the people who created this community.

And thanks for taking the time to read this post.

Hello. First post, etc. etc. [04 Jun 2006|08:11pm]
[ mood | bitchy ]

I just found this community, and I'm glad I did.  It looks like some good reading!

Well, I hear a lot about fangirls of movies, books, TV shows, and celebrities; however, I don't hear much about videogame fangirls.  Maybe it's because there aren't a lot of girl gamers.  I don't know.  Anyway, that's not a problem.  What bothers me is what some of the fangirl gamers do.  The "You should play this game!  It is SO AWESOME!" and "This character is my FAVORITE character!"  stuff doesn't bother me.  Talking about a favorite game for hours doesn't bother me that much, either.  It's the following things that I find really stupid and/or freaky:

- When fangirls over the age of 13 are so obsessed with a character (or characters) that they want to marry him.  Okay, it's no big deal if you find a fictional/cartoon character cute.  But when you want to MARRY that character?  No. It's a videogame (i.e. it's not even close to being real).

- The fangirls who lord over a particular game character, and get upset or angry when someone else likes the character, or writes good fanfics involving that character.  Come on!  The character isn't real, and you DON'T own him.

- Fangirls who will write nothing but lemonfics that completely butcher a character or characters.  Please, for the love of all that is sane, stop writing fanfics where 100% incompatible characters (e.g. bitter rivals, villain and hero) sleep together.  The incest junk has to stop, too.

That's all I have to say.  Thanks for reading.

It's not too late to start watching Veronica Mars! [03 Apr 2006|08:54pm]

Creators of some of the best shows on TV are fans of Veronica Mars. Joss Whedon calls it the "Best. Show. Ever." Lost creator Damon Lindelof said he had to cancel his cable "and get DirecTV TiVo, so that [he could] TiVo both Veronica Mars and Lost." When asked about the possibility of a Gilmore Girls/VM night on the CW next season, Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino said she thinks pairing the shows is "a great idea," and added, "in six years, [this] is the first pairing that literally makes any sense."

You may be afraid that like Lost, Veronica Mars is not a show you can jump right into, but VM is for the casual viewer and the die hard fan. True, there are two mysteries that have been unfolding since the beginning of the season, but each episode there is also a mini-mystery which is introduced and solved in the same hour. And while Veronica Mars is a show about an 18-year-old private investigator, the show is like Buffy and Gilmore Girls in that the writers consistently deliver fast paced snark-filled banter, well developed characters and compelling story arcs.

And tomorrow night's episode features Michael Cera and Alia Shawkat, George Michael and Maeby from Arrested Development! So turn your TV to UPN at 9:00 on Tuesday night and dive right in!

If you still feel like you need a little background before you watch tomorrow night's rerun of VM, you will find everything you need here: (episode 2x16 cheat sheet).

Awesome [14 Mar 2006|08:42pm]

Hello! *waves* Man, this place rocks! I remember the days when I use to have really bad fangirl moments such as believing I would really marry a certain celeb crush, always checking out info of celeb crush online, and gushing constantly about how he's soooooo hooooooootttt! Heh...I still have my fangirl moments...but I try not to be so obsessive about it.

I have to say, it makes me sad hearing that there are incest fics of Klaus and Violet(A Series of Unfortunate Events)...as well as slash fics involving Lemony Snickett. Also, it's sad to hear that Olaf actually has fangirls(obviously because of the film version). *shudders* I do not want to check out those fanfics mentioned above, especially the Klaus/Violet shipping fic. Gah, stupid fangirls, leave them alone. Haven't the Baudelaires suffered enough?
Thank you much film adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events...now the fangirls have plagued the fandom. *raises fist in anger*

Also, a long time ago...I remember checking out Yu-Gi-Oh fics at fanfiction.net and was frightened by a great number of badfics. The writing, characterization, description, idea, everything was just horrible. Ugh! Not so sure if there are still a great number of badfics over at the Yu-Gi-Oh section in fanfiction.net but I really don't to check it out now since I'm afraid I'll be blinded by the badness of the Yu-Gi-Oh badfics.

Er, anyway, as mentioned before, this place rocks. I'm pretty sure I'll stick around here more often and maybe get to know many people here. *waves*

At deviantART an artist called windy999 has been doing a DA beastiary. His most recent addition is probably one of the best explanations of fantardery that I've read in a while.

Hi. I'm new and, um, you guys rock. 

May I go on a rant?

I guess, by some standards, I'm a fangirl. I obsess. I write fanfiction, I put pictures on my walls and I spent at least an hour searching for the perfect Phantom icon (which I've yet to find). My favourite actors happen to be talented and, yes, very good looking men who I wouldn't mind doing some very illegal things with. It is a bit disappointing when one of them gets engaged or married because it's sort of the end of a dream. My eyes tend to glaze over when I read good slash, although I usually skip over the smut. Maybe I do think a little too much about how visually appealing a rain-soaked death fight between Spike and Angel would be. And while I'm sure the original Tolkien books are very good, I'm pretty content with the movies. 

On top of all that, I have my age working against me. At fifteen, almost sixteen, it's almost expected of me that I type in that disgusting "compuspeak" and leave proper English at school where it supposedly belongs. Plus, my friggin' hormones aren't doing me any favours. It's difficult to be taken seriously when I say I appreciate Christian Bale's skills as an actor, but my favourite scene in Batman Begins was his infamous shirtless pushups. 

Over my years (which aren't that many), I've found it difficult to maintain a happy medium between drooling idiot and elitist snob. While it would take nothing short of massive, permanent brain damage to make me use the phrase "sexcii" seriously, I do kind of feel bad for the rabid, scary fangirls because obviously, they don't know what to do with their brand new, overwhelming hormones. Plus, I've been there and it's really embarrassing to look back on what an idiot I've been. On the other hand, that doesn't mean they can manipulate the English language any way they please, nor does it justify their claims of being "orlis numba 1 fan." 

And then, the snobs: I can appreciate how heartbreaking it must be to be a fan of something for many, many years and see it go down the tube within minutes. But I get really angry when I see fans forming their own little cliques, because they're the "real" fans. Who is to say who gets to enjoy a movie and who doesn't? And the flamers, who deam a fic unreadable and don't offer a single tip on how to improve. This is supposedly justified thanks to their blank many years of fandom. 

I recently joined a few communities celebrating a fairly new book, Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, which happens to have a gorgeous male protagonist. We, the fans, petitioned hard to get a section on FFN and when we succeeded, there was much rejoicing. *waves little flags* It was heartwrenching for me to see such awful, repetitive fics being posted there, and more than a few Mary Sues among them. One immediately killed off the protagonist's love interest (who he claimed was his first and greatest love ever in his one hundred years) and introduced an almost identical girl with a much more repulsive name (Kitty Thorn, for those curious). Another one wasn't even about the book at all! It was about new kids in a high school in Ireland (Twilight takes place in Washington) who are somewhat similar to the characters in the book. I also got the impression that the author's first language was not English (possibly Chatese). It took everything in me to stop myself from flaming these "humans" of the face of the fandom, before I left a respectful review of each, curteously telling them where they went astray. 

Fangirling is an icky business. Sometimes, I think it would be easier to be Amish and not have to confront the Internet at all. 

Can I please just buy a one way ticket to Sanity, Ohio, where up is up and people can type in their first language?

Ahaha. Hahaha.

I just came across this community while looking for a community to join on the television show Lost.

I'm actually SCARED to check the ones out because in the past month or so I have joined about 10 communities and felt forced to leave them all because of the nausea I was constantly experiencing thanks to the large amount of fan girls posting at 3.2 nano seconds per minute.

It's a shame really. Granted, I can understand the younger females obsessing over people because they're "pretty" (we're talking ages 11-15 here) but when said fan girls begin to get a bit older (say 20's) I start to get irritated. So many things are lost on so many films and shows. It'd be wonderful to have fan forums that aren't comprised solely of discussions debating who is sexier or who would be better in bed and so forth.

That being said, are there any other Lost fans out there who are perhaps members of communities that aren't completely like that? I went looking for House not too long ago, and I was met with many an ugly sight.
