so we beat on, boats against the current,

borne back ceaselessly into the past.

hell to ships, hell to men, and hell to cities.

Like most people on LJ, I'm here for the fandom. I'm am utterly incapable of experiencing fiction in isolation and become easily obsessed with all manner of fictional things. And then I post about them. Misery loves company, but infatuation loves it better. I tend to jump from fandom to fandom, but am perpetually obsessed with ancient Greek mythology and literature and tend to get nostalgic about old fandoms from time to time.

I'm also prone to overthinking overanalyzing critiquing whatever I'm consuming, especially when it comes to gender and race issues, and I'm most invested in the female characters of any given fandom. I will consume any form of media from comics to cartoons to video games to obscure books translated from foreign texts as long as there are interesting women in it. And while I have a strong preference for genre fiction, again, I am up for anything that comes with Bechdel passing and awesome women.
