Fandom is, essentially, the collective refusal of thousands of people across the world to be passive about the media they are exposed to.
I just wish people from the outside would realize how great it truly is.
It’s great to be excited about stuff!

WHAT IS AIR. WHAT IS THIS PHOTO. WHAT ARE YOU, DANIEL?
This seems like a thing people might like to see on their dashes…
Welp, I think I know who needs to be the next Bond.

there’s a librarian code of conduct that we all learn about, but there should really be a patron code of conduct too, one that doesn’t police our visitors, but instead reinforces why we’re all here:

Anonymous asked: I miss the transmedia story of Lizzie Bennet Diaries. It made the world so real and why can't all web series do that? (LIZZIE IS REAL I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS.)
It was pretty cool! The team did a good job. Interested to see how web series and TV shows perhaps adopt similar approaches to transmedia in the future.
But sadly, Lizzie Bennet is not real and, in fact, her entire world has imploded.
If Emma’s videos are not really posted online (in world), yet they are posted on Pemberley Digital’s YouTube channel (out of world), that would suggest Pemberley Digital’s YouTube channel entirely is out of world, which would mean everything that happened on Welcome to Sanditon and Domino cannot be considered “in world” and is instead (as we know to be true regardless) utterly fake, and since the things that occurred in those series interacted with Lizzie’s channel and transmedia as if they were real and the (PD) channel was real, by association, that also makes Lizzie’s YouTube channel, her sisters, the other spin off channels, all the other characters, and Lizzie herself, not real.
Now that’s Domino.
… crying because reasons.

So cool to see historical events that caused frenzy on streets I’ve walked countless times.
Is there an inch of space anywhere?

Even cooler to be able to point at a spot in a vintage photo and think “I stood right there.”
