Utena: With Sword

The Truth is Out There

I love seeing wanky rumours shot down.

Context: One of the results of the original GitF-wank was this batshit rumour that all the GitF used for Moffat bashing. Namely, that Moffat had called the people who disliked it "emotional retards". Or something on those lines. And this got repeated over and over. And over.

And now it comes out that no-one can find an actual source for it. Certainly not the OG (since about the time the wank went down I was involved in certain "experiments", and been reading his posts quite avidly, I knew this, but many TWoPers aren't members), and it's not something that would ever make print media.

But, it sort of amuses me that for months the TWoPers have been bitching about something that never happened. And am vaguely annoyed on Moffat's behalf, too. Getting hated on for a lie.

Still, it's funny how rumours like this can spread in fannish locations. Rather like spoiler speculation...

Things what I did today

Because I felt like it - and I hate having to dig through my archive to find old posts - I've been tagging my entries. So far I've gotten back to the start of April (which means I have all of S2 Who, at least, so meta can be found) More shall be done next time I am bored.

My current taglist is found here. To my complete and utter lack of surprise, fandom: doctor who is the most used by far. Still, if we go back further, other tags might catch up a little, as I go back to my past fandoms.

In other amusement: the big huge Snape wank managed to hit 5000 comments - 5002 to be precise - and be full. Which is quite impressive, really. it even got an afterparty. The comments are definitely worth a look if you have time - filks liek whoa, the wanker and friends showing, cameo appearance from Snape, Lucius, Voldemort, Harry, JKR...

In RL, I went to II for once, since there was no Astronomy prac today. I played Balderdash, which was lots of fun. I seem to have a talent for selecting cards with hugely cracked out movie synopses. And making up believable stuff.

And a meme, because how could I resist this?

So, sound like me?
