Like a mannequin, everything is so awkward.

So what have you been up to? Major life changes? Same old same old?
Nothing major. Mostly the same-old thing, with a few unfortunate circumstances, but overall there hasn't been anything exciting.

What fandom are you in/do you spend most of your time in?
I guess I should just say that Richard Armitage is a fandom, yeah? Because that is mostly what I've been following of lately, from The Hobbit (♥) to his appearance on the last half of Hannibal, and just everything else he has done and will continue to do. I've just hopped on that fangirl bandwagon, and I spend a lot of time on Tumblr which thankfully there are plenty of Richard fans there to share in the love and constant squee. That's mostly been my main obsession of late. I've also been spending some time with the Life Is Strange fandom, just looking over the discussions, the theories and analysis of the game and story itself. Aside from that I mostly just lurk through the many different fandoms of things I'm interested in.

Where do you hang out online?
I mostly spend the most time here on LJ and on Tumblr, I also waste obscene amounts of time on YouTube, from regular people I watch and follow to just searching around.

What are you reading?
As Red As Blood by Salla Simukka. Before that I read Revenge by Yoko Ogawa (which was very good), and I'm still slowly making my way through the A Song Of Ice And Fire series. And of course, reading and rereading various fanfiction.

What are you watching?
Too many things. It's kind of ridiculous how many things I have lined up. I have quite a handful of shows that I have been watching, some of them have finished their summer seasons or are on hiatus, some I'm waiting for the fall season to start; some I have to catch up on, others I'm waiting so I can binge-watch. As what I'm currently watching at the moment, I've been selectively watching BBC's Robin Hood, the second season of Carmilla, catching up on all the episodes of Welcome To Night Vale that I have missed listening to (which includes starting back from the beginning as a refresher). I've also been heavily into YouTubers lately, mostly of the gaming/comedy community. I have regulars that I have been watching for a while now, such as Grace Helbig, Natalie Tran, and Markiplier, among some others. I'm also revving up with my horror movie watching in preparation for October/Halloween, because that's what I do.

What are you making?
I'm going to be making lunch soon.

What are you squeeing about today?
Richard Armitage, pretty much always these days, but especially with the news that he's going to be in a new spy series with Michelle Forbes and that he recorded something new for More to look forward to with that man! Also Red Velvet's "Dumb Dumb" music video, which came out not too long ago, but it's such a fun and lovely bop, I'm obsessed.

If you could rope old fandom friends into a new fandom, it would be...
For anyone who has a science fiction void in their soul, especially for former Firefly and Battlestar Galactica fans, Dark Matter and Humans fill that particular need wonderfully. There's not only diverse characters, but also fantastic women and really good stories being told. Stitchers is another that I've come to really like. The plot may seem hokey and the pilot may be a hit or miss for some, but trust me when I say those things can be overlooked with how the season is overall. It's only ten episodes, and you do become quite attached to certain characters, even ones that you didn't even intend to from the start. At least, that was my experience. For anyone who plays video games or likes watching Let's Plays, The Last Of Us, Life Is Strange, and Until Dawn is worth checking out. And if anyone hasn't watched it already, Mad Max: Fury Road isn't just gorgeous but it's certainly worth the hype and praise, as well.

What else is on your mind?
Just trying to get through the day, as you do. And possibly squeeze in some time for catching up on some shows before binge-watching on some newer ones.
