Fickle and changeable
Do you ever think you'll stop drawing fanart? No offense it just seems like the kind of thing you're supposed to grow out of. I'm just curious what your plans/goals are since it isn't exactly an art form that people take seriously.

Ah, fanart. Also known as the art that girls make.

Sad, immature girls no one takes seriously. Girls who are taught that it’s shameful to be excited or passionate about anything, that it’s pathetic to gush about what attracts them, that it’s wrong to be a geek, that they should feel embarrassed about having a crush, that they’re not allowed to gaze or stare or wish or desire. Girls who need to grow out of it.

That’s the art you mean, right?

Because in my experience, when grown men make it, nobody calls it fanart. They just call it art. And everyone takes it very seriously.

It’s interesting though — the culture of shame surrounding adult women and fandom. Even within fandom it’s heavily internalized: unsurprisingly, mind, given that fandom is largely comprised by young girls and, unfortunately, our culture runs on ensuring young girls internalize *all* messages no matter how toxic. But here’s another way of thinking about it.

Sports is a fandom. It requires zealous attention to “seasons,” knowledge of details considered obscure to those not involved in that fandom, unbelievable amounts of merchandise, and even “fanfic” in the form of fantasy teams. But this is a masculine-coded fandom. And as such, it’s encouraged - built into our economy! Have you *seen* Dish network’s “ultimate fan” advertisements, which literally base selling of a product around the normalization of all consuming (male) obsession? Or the very existence of sports bars, built around the link between fans and community enjoyment and analysis. Sport fandom is so ingrained in our culture that major events are treated like holidays (my gym closes for the Super Bowl) — and can you imagine being laughed at for admitting you didn’t know the difference between Supernatural and The X Files the way you might if you admit you don’t know the rules of football vs baseball, or basketball?

"Fandom" is not childish but we live in a culture that commodified women’s time in such away that their hobbies have to be "frivolous," because "mature" women’s interests are supposed to be marriage, family, and overall care taking: things that allow others to continue their own special interests, while leaving women without a space of their own.

So think about what you’re actually saying when you call someone “too old” for fandom. Because you’re suggesting they are “too old” for a consuming hobby, and I challenge you to answer — what do you think they should be doing instead?

The “show must go on”…but not if the roof’s leaking. (Or so it says in a comment, which is likely correct.) I feel conflicted. I feel concern for those who travel long distances to see the show…and just to see him. (High London hotel bills and travel costs not withstanding, some people simply just can’t come back.)[x]
But after seeing all those throat medicines, maybe he and the cast could use the rest? 

And what a huge disappointment it was for those who had come to see play from other countries. For some of them this trip to London might be one in a lifetime experience. As much as i appreciate that Richard did come to apologise for cancellation, it doesn’t make up for broken dreams and, I have to point out, for money that have been spent. I sincerely hope that Old Vic will do comething to compensate and hope even more that there won’t be any more cancellations in last three weeks. 
For Christ’s sake the tickets cost up to 85 pounds! Isn’t that enough for keeping the roof from leaking?

No matter how close I am with someone, there’s always somebody who comes before me - like I’m literally never anybody’s first choice.
