2. You know what's even more fun than writing things? Enabling other people to write things
3. In TV news, I keep meaning to make posts about Parks & Recreation and The Good Wife, but it keeps boiling down to "my favorite part was all of the parts". The Leslie/Ann friendship on P&R, man. It resonates with me in exacting and genuine ways. I recognize it. Actually I think what I appreciate the most about both these shows is the characters' diversity of successes and how unexpectedly empowering that is. Success and confidence look like a lot of things, but TV shows are rarely the place I go to be reminded of that. But suddenly Leslie Knope!
4. Sons of Anarchy is not a show I'd recommend to everyone, but I'm enjoying the crap out of it and can I get a WOOOOOOOO for Gemma, who is perfect? I really appreciate the Gemma/Jax relationship here because you don't get that many good mother/son relationships on TV. You usually get a crapload of father/son and mother/daughter - and some father/daughter - but I feel like mother/son gets the worst rap and is the most maligned. Gemma and Jax are strong characters who love and respect each other very much, and it's really heartening to see. I also have a bunch of capslock regarding the evolution of Gemma and Tara's friendship, but that is for another time. Unrelatedly: this show is like a Deadwood cast party or something.
5. Updated the masterlist with 8 new SPN fics, all of which are at different points of the Dean/Castiel shippiness spectrum, ranging from "gen fics inspired by shippy prompts" to "post-apocalyptic blowjobs". So yeah.
6. OMFG YES YESSSSSSSSS
