Should we start with the Age of Ultron trailer? I mean, I know this is supposed to be a SHIELD recap but doesn’t it feel relevant? You know what, I don’t care. Watch it and CRY.
We all know what the rabbit hole is. You click a YouTube link, then a related link, then three hours later you haven’t gotten up to pee and your mouth is parched. You can also substitute “YouTube” with “Wikipedia,” “tumblr,” etc. If you’re in a fandom, you’re well acquainted with rabbit holes. Walter and his group give us a look at the darker side of them in this week’s </scorpion>.
Thanks to our official </scorpion> giffer, Collie, for all the images in this week’s post.
Poor Jim Gordon. He really is the embodiment of “no good deed goes unpunished,” isn’t he? He chose not to kill Cobblepot because it was the right thing to do, and it keeps on coming back to bite him in his firm tushy.
I love this week’s banner more than life itself. Thank you, Liz. *hearteyes*
As far as I’m concerned, Sleepy Hollow is best watched simply and taken at face-value. This isn’t a bad thing. I actually really, really love the relationship I have with this show. It’s fun. It makes me happy. I don’t really care what happens as long as it’s exciting and visually stunning.
That being said, I recognize that there were some problematic things in this episode, especially concerning women. I’m not sure if it’s possible for me to overlook irritating things like turning ladies into jealous monsters just for the sake of the plot but goddammit I’m gonna try. Does that make me an awful person?
There was also a crow! The crow was cool! Look at the way Ichabod was side-eyeing that crow. I need the crow to become a regular.
Hail, hail, the gang’s (almost) all here, and they’re officially starting to regroup. Figure out where they’re going, and who they’re going with. Reuniting their family. Finding silver linings. Giving me feelings.

If you’ve been on the internets in the last couple of years, or follow any bookish peoples at all, you’ve probably heard the term New Adult no less than fifty three thousand times. But what is New Adult, and how does it differ from Young Adult, or Romance, or just plain old ‘Adult’ fiction?
Well. That’s an interesting question, and one that’s caused a lot of debate in the book world.
The term was basically invented in 2009 when the publisher St. Martin’s Press held an open call for “fiction similar to YA that can be published and marketed as adult—a sort of an ‘older YA’ or ‘new adult’” submissions. Since then, the category has taken off in a big way.
To put it in fandom terms, New Adult is the published version of college fic. It generally features characters between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five (ish), with themes focusing on the transition between teenager and adult, and is typically heavy on the romance.
We understand that even the most hardcore fanpeople have real lives that demand their attention. (Can someone do away with the whole ‘paying bills’ thing so we can quit our jobs and be full-time fans? Thanks.) Here’s a recap of this week’s posts so you can get caught up on all the keysmashing.
