Utena: With Sword

Oh, fandom...

So, JK Rowling had an interview, and as mentioned that she's had two more deaths she wasn't planning for added to Book 7. And so the fandom is flailing wildly. I am most amused.

Particularly by This poll it triggered.

Speaking of polls, I recommend this one to anyone who has seen Fear Her. Srsly.

And whilst I am on a link-pimping spree, philnthropy. Born out of the MsScribe saga, we have people selling some highly amusing fandom and f_w related t-shirts, with profits being donated to charity. All the details can be found in that comm, and it's a brilliant idea that I am fully behind.

Also, merinnan made me lose the game.

First impressions and Point of View characters

Okay, this is an idea that originally came up as a throw-away remark in the comments to someone, and just sort of... built in my head, until I realised it sort of explained a huge amount about how I feel about the characters in Doctor Who, especially Rose.

And what it all comes down to is first impressions.

Wow. That's a lot of words, in which I say... not very much, really. However, I would like to hear from people on how different or similar their experiences have been compared to mine.

ETA: Read the comments. I've got some very diverse and interesting perspectives on Rose and just companions in general.
