There are many copies...  
++ The Battlestar Galactica reunion recently happened at the ATX Festival, which there are official EW portraits of the cast who attended. Just viewing those pictures and even seeing them all these lovely together again makes me so nostalgic for the show. BSG has been, and will always be, one of my absolute favorite television series of all time and as I mentioned before I really kind of want there to be a resurgence of the fandom; let people discover the brilliance of the show, get fandom more active again, bring on more merchandising, etc.

++ An official photoshoot with the main characters of Marvel's television series (Netflix's Marvel lineup and ABC's Agents of SHIELD) makes me want there to be a crossover so badly. It won't ever happen aside from maybe possibly making vague references to one another, but a girl can dream. Hell, I've already been having plenty of plotbunnies hopping around for a while now.

++ So the announcement trailer was released regarding the Life Is Strange prequel game, Life Is Strange: Before The Storm. Sadly, it seems that voice actress Ashly Burch, who voiced Chloe Price, won't be playing the character in the prequel due to the prolonged and still ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, which Square Enix decided to go with a non-union actress instead. Reading Ashly's comments about this difficult decision she had to make, also about how unfairly voice actors are often treated within the industry in general, it just honestly sucks all around. I admit to not being that knowledgeable on this particular topic, but reading that article and some other ones has given me a bit of a perspective on the sacrifices voice actors have to make.

To me it kind of feels far. It's been so long since it ended and the ending left it all closed so it seemed to tell us "let it go". I don't know. I'm not sure I can watch it again with the same passion. And I'm talking about the show that made me a fangirl. But still... Too many things have changed. BSG is more a memory to me than a show that is still out there. It's strange. Sometimes I wish I could have some BSG-related things back.

I'm quite the opposite, since I have rewatched BSG many times since the show ended and I have never lost that passion I had when it was airing. In fact, revisiting the show makes me yearn for more of that universe (which is why I get bitter that Caprica was cancelled, we could've had so much more explored, ugh). Though my issue comes from that once BSG ended, it seemed that the fandom gradually disappeared as well. I mean, there have been many shows which ended on a completed note but their fandoms still thrive years later (BTVS and Harry Potter immediately come to mind), and yet BSG seems rather obscure for some reason. Not even on Tumblr, despite the fact that you'd think with how relevant the show still is today that people would latch onto it. And that, to me, is rather strange.

I guess it may have to do with how adult the show is. It made us grow, in a way. It made us fangirl and then stop doing it (because the chief, Lee, Adama, almost everyone just want a quiet life in the end, and that kind of gets into you: explore, forget about everyone and everything, just live). Idk. Maybe I'm just rambling.
