What have I done?

Just signed up to do a Sean/Alex XMFC Big Bang fic. No prompt, really, but I'll probably write his story according to the film - as in, switching the whole thing to his POV. I've been thinking about doing that for a while anyway.

15,000 words is piss easy for me, most of the time. Watch as I now cannot think of a single fucking thing to say.

Caleb has a heavily locked-down Facebook. He doens't even have his own picture on the profile.

Today, he added a fan - a dude around his own age, from Brazil.

But the thing is, this dude fanboys with the best of them, and talked about it on Tumblr. Now all the fangirls are asking for links to his profile and flailing and trying to get added.

I have already seen one screencap of his profile (nothing massively personal on it, but still) and people are talking about stalking his personal photos.

I cannot headdesk hard enough, right now.

The guy keeps himself private. Very private. He clearly does not want his stuff posted all over the internet and he almost certainly does not want millions handfuls of fangirls trying to talk to him any time he's online.

If you're going to add the kid, add his MySpace, which is open to the public and is regularly updated with his new songs.

Leave the boy some privacy. Don't repost his photos. Don't repost his comments. Don't repost things his friends and family say to him. He's young and he's very new at this. Don't scare him away from his fandom before he even understands it.

But if you have the opportunity, a one-off suggestion that he gets a Twitter account, where he can manage the communication himself, may not go amiss.

Edit: Boom! There are the personal photos which have almost certainly come from his Facebook - posted by someone other than the Brazilian guy. Sounds like he's added a handful of others, too.

*sigh* Steep learning curve, you say?

Edit 2: Someone just said she has "about 20" pictures from his Facebook to post. She has already posted maybe five. This is really not good.

Things I don't understand about fandom right now:

- The strange and on-going shift into darker and darker and more and more violent/outlandish sexual themes. It's an endless stream of non-con, dub-con, child abuse, domestic abuse, extreme BDSM (which is fine, but seems more abundantly common, lately) and D/s relationships. The latter two can certainly be accepted as kinks rather than the earlier ones and I'm totally cool with that. The point is more that they seem to be much, much more common and explicit in fanfics than they used to be, and I wonder why. What has prompted such an enormous upsurge in stories focusing on rape, abuse, violence and role-played versions thereof? When did that change? Am I the only one who remembers when the height of Teh Shock was Aliens Made Us Do It, We Did It With Aliens and Epic Sex Pollen?

- X-Men: First Class. How - and I am genuinely curious about this - is the pairing comprising A MAN PAINTED RED WITH BAD GREASEPAINT and A MAN WHO HAD NO LINES IN THE FILM WHATSOEVER more popular than the pairing comprising the DELIGHTFULLY DAMAGED BUT RIPPED YOUNG MAN WITH DANGEROUS POWERS and THE ADORABLE SMARTASS WHO CAN FLY BUT CAN'T FLIRT? WTF, fandom. Seriously? What the fuck is that? Also: you realise that after the end of the film Beast doesn't turn back into Nick Hoult, right? So all your three-some fics involve loads of blue, matted, semen-sticky fur, right? Okay.

- And while we're at it: why so little love for Caleb? FUCK YOU LOOK AT HIS FACE.

And when you've stopped laughing at the lengths they've gone to to make his skin look normal after PAINTING OUT HIS FRECKLES, let's note that he's the only main character other than Riptide (does Captain Hot-But-No-Speaking-Role even count?) who didn't make it onto the posters. Nor did he get a Marvel Minimate made of him, even though Havok, Beast, Mystique and even Azazel did. He's the only member of the X-Men who didn't. And he was so excited by the idea of getting to be a redheaded action figure for little redheaded kids to have, too. :*( RAGE SPOILERS ) C'MON. WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT, MARVEL? AND ALSO: FANDOM. GET ON THIS SHIT LIKE SUNBURN ON A GINGER.

I haven't done a silly meme for a while, so here's one from [livejournal.com profile] averzierlia:

Give me three fictional characters, and I'll respond with shag/marry/push off a cliff.

I lol'd.

It's so strange how people hate us and the way we run [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc and yet they just can't bring themselves to stay away.

Bob's processor has more or less died. I'm going to have to send him to the TechGuys again, but when they had Julie's laptop recently they failed to fix it twice and kept it for over a month in total.

I'd been planning to buy my friend's netbook to cover the absence, but then I had to spend a lot of money on flights to Sicily unexpectedly, so now things will be a bit tight.

Luckily, I still have Reg and access from work, otherwise, this would be even more of a pain in the arse.

In other news, went to see Paul again last night. The first time, my belt undid itself. This time the metal button on my jeans actually broke off. I guess nerds just have that effect on me...

The film is still awesome. We enjoyed noticing the stuff we didn't have time to catch the first time around. I already have a bit of a premise for a fic, but I'm not sure I'll bother.... Might keep it in my head. XD

Leaving someone trollish messages on their birthday - referencing the fact that it's their birthday.

That's super classy, there.

How is it possible to fail to understand how the words spoiler ), spoiler ) & MASSIVE spoiler ) are spoilers when they are from an audio interview with the fucking writer of the series and everyone now knows the context of each of those words from the literary canon?


Back on moderated for you, and dustbin for your post then, Captain Sensible.

This fandom is destroying my enjoyment of the canon.

I can't stand the vast majority of the users, the quality of writing is deteriorating continually and all my time is dedicated to babysitting total fucking idiots who can't comprehend basic rules.

They flounce around like fourteen year olds when you won't accept their wildly off-topic posts and PM us repeatedly even when asked not to.

I am so fucking sick of it.

The prompt for this post just put me off my breakfast.

My breakfast is a treacle pastry, rendering this turn of events completely unacceptable.

Good moaning.

Woke up with swollen knees but less stabby pain and then discovered someone posting about why her - ADMITTEDLY WILDLY OOC - Irene Adler is the Sherlock OTP, even though she hasn't appeared in the series AT ALL, yet.

It's going to be a long day, folks.

I feel like I'm slacking, not having started my fic, yet.

I haven't really had any inspiration, yet - I've got the ideas, but not the framework. Some of my best fics have come from prompts (see: Hedonism), but those are far from forthcoming, unless I want to write porn. Which, incidentally, I do not.

I'm so exhausted lately, that I barely have the energy to think about these things at all...

God, I need a job with reasonable hours. I get in later now than I did living in London. It takes me longer to get home 1.7miles than it did 6 miles in London. What the shit is this, Brighton?

Plus, the ridiculous migrating joint pain has settled; at all my major joints, but mostly my knees, which now experience a sharp, radiating pain whenever I stand up, sit down or use stairs. Really, it's just in the moment in which pressure is put on the knee to bend at the right angle or take the weight but it is absolutely excruciating. I almost cried trying to get off the sofa and had to hop down the steps on the bus earlier (because at that point, right knee had not set in).

The left knee set in randomly at work this afternoon. Right elbow has been painful for days, but this morning it was so bad I didn't have the control to brush my hair and had to do it left handed.

I swear to God, it's like my body is deliberately fucking with me.

I'm going to go to sleep, if I show signs of stirring, in the morning, please smother me. Thanks.

Er, fandom:

This fandom needs a Brit-picker or at the very least, a Brit-picking guide.

...consumed by Sherlock. Dammit.

Have discovered that Martin Freeman is a tiny little man who has recently started dressing like a complete queen.

This is... confusing.

What the hell happened to Arthur Dent? I'm sure he was normal height, once.

Also, Benedict Cumberbatch is incredibly pretty for someone remarkably ugly.

Oh man.

Someone has been commenting on my old Stackhouse/Markham fics. I never finished Night Lights and I totally wish I had.

I miss that fandom. It was so easy on the wank.

I'm really tempted, but I have so much going on in this fandom.
