I should probably preface this by saying it was written at 1am...

tired

I'm feeling: tired

It's taken me three days to write this post because I actually am not sure how to say what I want to say in it.

Basically I only swing by LJ to check the friends page and if there's nothing of note (which is usually the case these days) I carry on to my new home over at Tumblr. Brutal honesty time too: I have no plans to try and come here more often. Tumblr is a lot more active, I enjoy it a lot more and and half of my good LJ friends are on there anyway. Still I will not be disappearing, I still check the f-list page and I can still be contacted through here.

I've kind of fandom jumped too. And those who have me on Tumblr will by now have found themselves bashed over the head numerous times with my new OTP, the gorgeous Lady Sybil and Tom Branson of Downton Abbey (see my icon :P). I can't help it, they're just so perfect! If something happens to either of them in season 3 my emotions may not be able to cope!

There is a reason I've had the room for another love in my fandom life though. Because the horrible thing is that the DC reboot has killed my passion for comics.

I've dropped Superman from my pull-list and intend to drop Action Comics pretty soon. My love for them has just completely deflated. Even for fic! I feel absolutely terrible but I've stopped reading several Superman fics I was really enjoying just because I can't seem to get into them anymore- all I can think is 'DC fucked this up good in canon' :(

I'm not sure what this means for my fic writing though, because to be honest I'm not writing anything right now, the most I've posted in the past few months has been a very short oneshot (and it was DA too...). My Uni work is really getting the better of me although even that isn't going, I just hope I can scrape myself a pass. Cs get degrees guys!

I don't think I'll ever forgive myself if I don't finish Revelations though. I don't even care if it take 5 more years and all the readers have left. I will finish this thing goddammit!! The story is already done in my head, just need it in words...

So yes, hopefully that was what I meant to say.

Well, I can kinda relate with you in the fandom hopping. Most stuff I read these days is Star Trek. :P But somehow I haven't jumped off completely yet, since I still return to Superman and Batman once in a while.

However I will be pleased to read anything connected to Revelations, no matter when.

And I know that the different fandoms will not change that I'm always happy to read or hear from you. We may have met because of Superman but there's definitely more to our friendship than that.

I'm not completely off yet either but dear god this reboot has killed my passion for Superman... I still like it but there's none of that intense love I had before...

Lol, me too! :P

Definitely not *HUGS* We're way more than fandom friends now, so no need to worry about the fandom jumping and what not, I know it doesn't matter for us anymore- though it will always be special as the way we first met *more hugs*

I hear you about Tumblr ... is totally addicted, as you know! I'm sad to hear you've dropped Superman/DC. I've been hearing all over how bad it is. Now whether this will affect the movie, I doubt it.

I've behind in the SV-Season 11 comic. I'll get caught up once I finish this monster of a story. It is winding down now though! Twelve chapters and counting. It won't be long before it's done...

Anyway, sorry about your Muse. She is a fickle queen, isn't she?

I hope you can finish Relevations. It's such a marvelous story and unforgettable. I truly love it and wish it would continue. *sends good vibes to you and stern looks at your Muse*

*sends hugs to you and hopes for that *degree* which I know you'll get. Oh, yeah, no question about that!:D

Urgh, it's like the worst and the best thing ever isn't it?!

I haven't completely dropped it... yet. But the passion is certainly gone. It's hard to see a character I loved being so brutally butchered :(

Oh my muse and I certainly need to have some words...

I really hope I can too, believe me if I don't, no one will be more disappointed than me. But like I said, it's not just Revelations- I'm in my last semester at Uni and all my writing is taking a hit.

Eh, I just hope I get it this year. I know I'll get it eventually but I'd rather not have to repeat a course :P Thanks *hugs*

I'm WAY behind on commenting. It's because I'm over on Tumblr too.

Oddly for me I retreated into Lois and Clark (The New Adventures of Superman) so I could keep my clois passion going strong. But other than buying backissues of the Pre-2011 reboot, Smallville Season 11, and TWO copies of the Superman Family Adventures (one for War'N Peace and one for me) my pull list has been dead. I really should consider adding "Love and Capes" again but I think I may just have to find a place to purchase it as my LCS doesn't carry it. If you want your Clois but don't mind if it's not ACTUALLY clois you maybe enjoy it. The writer/artist Thom Zahler has gone on record multiple times about how Lois and Clark were his inspirations for the two main characters (if you want to read the back-issues he posts them as a webcomic at loveandcapes.com.)

I love Lois and Clark too much to drop them but that's in part because I started with them when they were never ever together (they were dating in the comics in the Byrne era but I also read ones (Bronze age) where Lois loved him but was tired of Superman's desire to stay uncommitted and the Fleischer cartoons as well.) The new versions offend me considering how every single version I knew of her up to that point always had at least a cursory interest. In the reboot there seemed to be none of that either and it was upsetting to me. I stopped Superman with #7 (the end of the first arc.) Action was never on my radar because the way he was doing the storytelling frustrated me and upset me as a linear reader (I would have been fine with it if he had denoted in the comics exactly WHERE we were in that time frame.) In addition, his version of Lois was actually offensive to me. It didn't make an iota of sense that she would act the way she did.

I'd wondered on the Revelations front. Considering how much further in time it takes place as opposed to any of the TV/Movies series or comics it's quite likely you can go off on your own, not worrying about ANY of the source material.

Tubmlr is my life right now :P

Yeah, I can't stand what they've done with the reboot. I went in yesterday and took them off my pull-list and the comic store guy didn't seem surprised at all which I think says something.

Yeah, I really hope I can continue Revelations and the way canon is right now I wouldn't care if it wasn't...
