I'm curious flisters - what is the dealbreaker for you when it comes to fandom? What would make you not join or leave a fandom even if you love the show like piechocolate? Ships wars? Her versus slash fights? RPF tinhattery? Particular people? A particular kind of -ism in large supply?

Or do you have no definite ones, just mainly a "as long as the good outweighs the bad" approach?

(You don't have to give specific examples or anything! I am curious because I am wondering about poking into Merlin fandom some, but some stuff I've seen made me a bit hesitant.)

Also, what sort of danger would a Viking!vampire find himself in? Seriously, I can't think of anything workable. I'm half tempted to stick him in a cage above a lake of silver or some such really contrived, and just play with it. (And make jokes about Swedes while at it, of course.)

I made Arthur/Gwen vid, just because. Direct link.

I make vids mainly because I like to make playlists of them on my computer and play them while I also play WoW. Possibly I am weird.

Meanwhile, Norway is having an actual possible conspiracy blow-up, which I never thought I'd see in our tiny little country. Basically, Arne Treholt was in the early 1980s convicted of being a spy. Now there has been claims that the evidence against him was planted and the case might be reopened. If it is, shit will hit the fan.

In other news:

- Controversial film about a Nazi propagada film is released in Germany.
- A Belgian woman is tried for murder by skydiving sabotage.
- Texas considers ban on school books that are "pro-Islam". (SAY WHAT THERE TEXAS?!)
- Ancient remains of a child are returned to the Torres Strait tribe.
- Cat was dyed pink as a prank; people not amused.

Er, different societies have had different concepts of "vampires" -- including what they were vulnerable to. I think the Hollywood one of a stake through the heart and decapitation -- or silver -- doesn't have any basis in real folklore, any more than the Hollywood-ism of needing a silver weapon to kill a werewolf.

Main character hatred. (Yes, Anita Blake fandom, I'm looking at you.)

Also, what sort of danger would a Viking!vampire find himself in?
Bersekr werewolves? :~D What is this about, anyway?

Re Treholt: Yes, I'm slightly worried about how this will turn out. We'll just have to hope for the truth to come out, I suppose.
