Hi, I'm acafanmom on tumblr, and I'm currently in the process of establishing a fan meta blog over on Wordpress as a way of bringing meta to a wider readership (thefanmetareader on WP); someone recommended your Welcome to Twin Peaks meta to me, and I really loved how you read NV against TP. I was wondering if it might be possible to post that piece on the blog; it would mean reposting it there with a credit and link back at the end. No worries if not, but I wanted to ask. Thanks for your time.

That’d be great!

…Wait, I hit return and it sent the message early, which I didn’t mean to do. But the sentiment remains: sure! And for those what might be curious, Welcome to Twin Peaks is something I wrote … wow, a little over a year ago. And for the most part, despite the trajectory the show has taken in the interim, I stand by the conclusions I drew.

                        On, on, you noblest readers.
Whose tastes are piqued by submissions here!
Stories that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts all day for boyfriends fought
And art that shines for lack of all defect:
Dishonour not contributors; attest
That those whose work you view here is sublime.
Be copy now to men of hotter blood,
And click and dive right in. And you, good readers,
Whose links make social media, show us here
Signs of appreciation; let us swear
These stories worth your reading; which I doubt not;
For there is none of smut so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in our eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon your pants. The issue’s live:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry ‘Yay for gays and porn!’ —Your editors

:’D  it’s complete~ <3 I wanted to do a picture that really did the game justice.. I literally couldn’t pry myself away from this game for 2 weeks. It was great. I laughed, I cried, I grew close to these people. My only regret is not playing it sooner. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the Persona 4 Investigation team in my style! I’ll have prints at Anime Revolution in Vancouver BC and Fan Expo Toronto. I’ll also have small individual prints of each character (since they’re each on their own later and fully drawn!)

It has come to my attention…

…that one of my new and exciting Ghost Tumblr problems is that I cannot send fanmail or asks, even anonymously. I’ve been able to do so in the past, so I don’t know what the problem is now. But suffice it to say that if you’ve sent me a very nice message lately and it seems like I’ve ignored you, it’s not true! Things are just extra-broken for me.

There’s nothing wrong with stopping seeking out the new and idealising the old, by the way. I mean, as long as you don’t do it for everything you care about, that’s unhealthy. But it’s a big life and you have less and less of it, triage is going to happen. Just don’t be a dick to your ex-interests, or more to the point, to the people who share them.

I wrote and then deleted a pretty giant essay elaborating my complicated feelings about this good point - how I feel like there’s value sometimes in not just disengaging with one’s ex-interests, but really actively renouncing them, nay denouncing them, going over to the other side, joining up with the enemy, etc

but then I would say that, I align zealot

but on the “more to the point” side of the comma, yes 100% co-sign
