Ok, so I've basically been on an extended fandom hiatus lately. Haven't written or vidded anything in months (though I occasionally poke at a couple of WIPs), am reading fic primarily from my old fandoms rather than anything current (Star Trek reboot and Merlin have both been prominently featured in my reading list lately), only check DW/LJ once a week and Tumblr even less frequently. Between work, Gay Geeks, and navigating a new relationship, my real life has been...busy. (Yes, the girlfriend thing is official, and she's even spent a weekend with my parents now. So there's that. Getting serious happens a lot quicker when you've already been friends for a couple of years, apparently.)

Still not sure when I'm gonna get back in the swing of things. (I'd really thought that the Man From UNCLE movie would kick me back into gear, because it hit a lot of my fannish buttons in truly delightful ways, but apparently not.) But hey, with the fall comes the beginning of the TV season, so, y'know, maybe it's time. Doctor Who is not doing it for me much, still, though I <3 Missy. However, I just watched the season premieres of both Sleepy Hollow and Agents of SHIELD, and I am SO INTO THEM.

Sleepy Hollow - I'm so freaking glad the show has excised the shitty Crane family drama and is bringing the fun back. It's never gonna be a GOOD show, and I miss Irving something fierce, but I have Abbie and Ichabod and their ridiculous faces, and everything is well in the world. Also Jenny, obvs, and I kinda dig that all the new cast members in the credits are ladies. YOU GO SHOW. BADASS BETSY ROSS AND ALL.

SHIELD - CANONICAL UNDENIABLE LGBT CHARACTER IN THE MCU FREAKING FINALLY. I love how nonchalantly they dropped that in, and how poignant it was to Joey's arc without beating you over the head with it (or in any way reducing his character to That Gay Guy). I really hope he sticks around.

Also Fitz is breaking my heart, no surprise there. And Skye is officially Daisy now, yay! Even if Coulson is having trouble adjusting. (Speaking of LGBT themes, you could easily read a little trans* allegory there in terms of the name change, and I totally approve of how it was handled.) Also thrilled that Mack and Bobbi are now listed among the main cast. (So's Lincoln, which I'm fine with -- I like him well enough, and I'm interested to see what they do with him now.) Mack is rapidly becoming my favorite. Spent the whole ep wondering where May was (and Ward, for that matter), but with such a large ensemble cast, it makes sense that they'd streamline individual episodes for storytelling purposes, and I have faith that when May does show up, it will have been worth the wait.

Jesus christ just call it the X-gene already, come ON.

So that's where I'm at. I do miss writing, but I feel like I drain all my creative energies at work, and there's just nothing left when I get home. It's frustrating, because work is not the kind of creative that leaves me feeling fulfilled in any way, but...there it goes. While I was struggling a bit last fall, too, I don't think it's a coincidence that I started this job in January and haven't posted a single fic since. I just need to find a new balance, I guess.

I have loved Mack from the moment he showed up and he's just got more and more fun! And yes, finally, canon gay LGBT person in the MCU! About time, and I hope he doesn't come to a swift and nasty end.

I miss Frank like burning, but the excising of the Cranewreck was so incredibly necessary. And I'm glad Abbie's gotten to go to Quantico!
