Fandomosity: Jossverse (WW, BDM), General Fandom, Bones, VMars  
Good morning, all! Happy Saturday, March 25th. Wishing everyone a wonderful day, as I am updating this fandomosity postage in the early morning and probably won't be sleeping until some time later. Still nevertheless, hope everyone has a good one, and enjoy the fandomish news/updates.

-♠- The Wonder Woman WTF?!: Lindsay Lohan actually considering to play Wonder Woman? This would be, in my opinion, a definite world of hell freaking no. Of course, Joss has already stated, time and time again, that the casting of Wonder Woman would be of an unknown-actress; someone Hollywood hasn't touched or isn't familiar to many. Also, I really cannot picture seeing Joss and Lindsay communing in a friendly geekfested conversation. Not at all. By all means, this little piece of information may just be a rumor and Lohan's dreaming wish, however in reality it'll never ever happen.

-♠- George Lucas Versus Serenity: This webcomic hilariously illustrates the differences between Lucas' Star Wars and Joss Whedon's Serenity, in where a cartoonified George Lucas discusses the problematic character developments and so forth. This is for all my fellow Browncoats to enjoy, for it is utter perfection.

-♠- Attack Upon The Fanficcers: This is a very old and worn-out argument that traces back into the old fandom days, however there's been some writers/authors/whatevers claiming that "fanfiction is unworthy of you", and basically slamming all fanfiction and slash-writers as unheathly and committing plagarism against the original creator (blah blah, all that old rubbish). While the link was changed, you can catch up on reading the general responses by other folks and their thoughts. We all know that Anne Rice practically prohibits fanfiction being written, however Joss Whedon is quite smitten with fanfiction, and even encourages it within fans which I think is where he gets most of his crack, and vice versa. However, I must quote this little thing from her written thing before it was de-linked: "Romances are invented, gender identities changed, fetishes indulged and endings are altered. It’s not flattery...fan fiction becomes personal masturbation fantasy in which the fan reader is interacting with the writer’s character. That isn’t healthy for anyone." --- Duh, that's where we get our daily crack, lady. Speculations, alternate universes, crack!pairings and multiverses merging together. It's crack, that's fandom for you, get over it.

-♠- Fandom Is Love: Ah, and speaking of fandom I must direct this lovely little essay/writing piece: Fandom, how and the way it is and always will be. Very poetic, and describes fandom perfectly in all shapes and forms. Someone should just link that little piece to Miss Non-Ficcy-Approved in the above link (fandom definitely trumps her, like whoa).

-♠- Forensic Anthropologists Lives!: There seems to be a lucky streak, because Bones has been picked up for a second season. Huh, FOX is finally doing something right for a change, and thank God for that (and hopefully House M.D. will get a third season, as well).

-♠- VMars News, Yay: UPN will be moving Veronica Mars back to its original timeslot, beginning Tuesday, April 11th. Is this good news or bad new concerning possibilities for CW picking the series up for a third season, I haven't a single clue. There is no definite or concrete information on whether CW is going to be having Veronica Mars in its schedule. Although the season isn't over and hopefully, as I am crossing my fingers, it'll be announced by the final episode or so. Until then, let's keep praying ratings will continue to rise and that fandom continues to respond to each episode.

Joss made a comment about the fanfiction debate on another thread (here: http://whedonesque.com/comments/9833 ) He said, "And may I just add that no one should ever learn to write by writing fanfic. Neither should there be spec scripts for aspiring televsion writers or -- and I can't stress this enough -- the drawing of existing characters by comic book artists. Can you imagine how the guy who draws Spider Man would feel if someone ELSE drew him too?"

Joss is freakin' adorable. I do too, witty yet he makes a great point. I heart him too. Far too much, probably. *fangirls*

That he is. He seems to have lots more fun with the role, and wear nifty suits and handle guns. Yay. :)

They do realize that it puts VMars against House. Why must the like four tv shows I watch with regularity go against each other?

I know! That's the trouble with this arrangement. I like the Wednesday schedule better, since my favorite shows are evened out without much debating. But this....is making things a little more difficult. Gah! Why is Tuesday the hotspot, huh?

Thanks for the links.

At least that takes VM away from competing with Lost...which is why they did it... I hope it's not a bad sign though.
