Being different is making a difference.  
++ There is a new friending meme going around, so join in if you haven't yet!

++ The cast and crew of Sense8 did a huge "thank you" video in celebration of getting the show back, with talking about the show and what it meant to them and the appreciation of the fan community, and just the entire thing in itself is just so beautiful and heartfelt. It makes me incredibly happy to have been part of something like this, and seeing that our efforts as a fandom weren't wasted, that our voices were heard. We, the fans, made this happen. Also, Lana and some of the cast did a live interview where they discussed more in depth with everything that occurred and their feelings about the entire ordeal, from news of the cancellation to the fan campaigning to them getting brought back. It's actually the first time we hear them talking about it at length, so it gets kind of emotional when they're discussing what the show means to them and how the news affected them in a personal way, and the gratitude they have towards the fans for fighting as passionately to get it back. I just love these people, I love this show, and I love this fandom. ❤

Lana also made a little comment about writing season three? This is obviously not an official statement, but she mentioned having so much faith in the fans that I think she's preparing for anything. I'm trying not to get my hopes up since I've already mentioned being totally fine with us just having a two-hour final episode to conclude the story, since that is more than most cancelled shows ever get. But I would be lying if I said I wouldn't be so fucking excited if we actually got more than that should the special episode succeed beyond expectations in terms of viewership.

++ In A Heartbeat is a cute little animated LGBT short film and it has been getting a lot of praise and attention, and for good reason. It is absolutely adorable and powerful, even without a single word being spoken. Anyone who hasn't seen it yet, I highly recommend you do so.

++ Since I've been going on lately about fandom merchandising, this was recently brought to my attention: a limited edition Thorin Oakenshield figure statue from The Battle of the Five Armies, on the throne and everything. Of course, this being the WETA Workshop, it is outrageously expensive just like everything else they've got in their store, but it is also incredibly gorgeous and immensely detailed. I'm just in awe. Thorin is still my favorite character of The Hobbit films so naturally when something new appears in the merchandise I'm immediately drawn to it.

I haven't watched the Sense8 videos, but I'm happy that Lana mentioned a potential S3. I hope she won't be too disappointed if it doesn't happen, though. She was really down after the show was cancelled. We all love the show, but it's her baby.

I'm hoping for her sake that even if this potential third season doesn't happen that the story can still continue in some fashion, either in a novel or comic books or, hell, even a YouTube webseries. It probably won't be the same as a show with a large budget, but at least the story will still live on in some way.

Regardless though, I love how much she and the rest of the cast love the show and have a huge love of each other. And hearing it directly from them what this entire experience meant to them is so touching and heartfelt. :)

Yes, it's not rare for US TV shows to have comics books. I think that would work well for Sense8, since it has a very visual aspect to it.

Yay... I'm glad the fans saved Sense 8 :)

It's extremely rare that something like this happens, so all of this is because of the fans. We made this happen, and I couldn't be prouder of this accomplishment that I've so happy to have been a part of. :)

I'm so glad we're getting more Sense8!

I'm so happy, too! It's still bullshit what Netflix did and I'll never forget or forgive them for it, but it's miraculous that we're getting something after all of that. And just seeing how much the cast and crew love the show just as much as we do makes my heart swell. ❤

IAHB was so cute and quite a tearjerker! I loved seeing the reaction videos to it.

Same. I really like seeing other people's reactions to the video, and the majority of the ones I've seen were very positive. :)

In A Heartbeat is just so very soft.

It really is. It's just so innocent and pure, and obviously so important as a representation of LGBT youth. The animation, the story, the characters, and the message overall is adorable and sweet. ❤❤
