allinablur asked: Hi! Personally I think those are desirable traits for many people so it's not strange :)
Definitely. I just meant that as a writer for one show you can get wrapped up in your own story. But you guys see all the connections between the stories/novels/adaptations. Which is really cool :)

“What do you look for in guys?” / “What would your ideal mate be like?”
It’s funny how you can get so busy writing a script and telling a story that you don’t see these parallels coming.
Not surprising though.
Sounding like a broken record over here, but unfortunately there will be a minor delay this morning. While the video was ready to go on youtube, some very important audio seems to have dropped out of the sky and into the abyss- which wouldn’t be much fun to watch. Should be fixed shortly.
"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be"

Today was one of those days where we filmed something really cool- and I can’t tell anyone about it.
But I work with some awesome people- I can say that :)
Ep 8: Duck Pond is up!
(Or as I like to call it “Nessa hides behind trees to avoid being in the shot: Part 2”)
So I’m rather sleep deprived at the moment but this episode was a pleasure to shoot. Enjoy :)
Small delay this morning because among other issues, I just got off a plane a few hours ago. Shouldn’t be too long a wait and hopefully worth it. I rather like this episode (and I’m not tooting my own horn- I didn’t write it)
"Community got renewed."
You’re getting really good at this stuff, Internet.
All right Community fandom, study group hug. We’ll get through this together.
Tonight I watched what could possibly be the last episode of one of my favourite shows ever.
(No seriously- if you’ve ever had to spend more than an hour at a time with me I will talk about Community. My friends know and accept this about me :)
I have often ranted and raved about it- but right now I just want to appreciate the piece of work that showed me that intelligent humor, deep and layered storytelling, and diverse and wonderful characters can exist and be appreciated.
A lot of people won’t think that’s a big deal. “It’s just a TV show” they say. “It’s just a sitcom”.
But this show did a lot for me. It did a lot of for a lot of other people too. It challenged conventions, questioned and dissected sterotypes, reinvented and subverted genres and gave you a giggle and hug when you needed it.
Sure, it often struggled to get the ratings and viewership it deserved- but at the end of the day it’s the show I put on when I’m feeling crummy or blue. It’s like a good friend holding a cup of tea. And means something- at least to me.
So tonight I hope it gets renewed. But even if it doesn’t I know that the enthusiasm and effort that this fandom has put into promoting the show is proof it is a story well-loved.
And that’s really all you can ask for.
In honor of the season finale tonight I’m also adding a photo I meant to post months earlier of some figurines my awesome friend Charlotte made me for Christmas.
They sit on the shelf of my desk and I adore them :)
