Top Gear fanmix to celebrate the new season and to procrastinate. It's a joke btw. Song selection isn't serious.

Not Rant, Just... Baffled

Posting here because the person in question is on tumblr and I just need to, uh, share my bewilderment.

Tinhatting RPF

Yesterday I read something on the internet which mentioned RichLee (Richard Armitage/Lee Pace) tinhatters. I thought that it's way too harsh to call these people tinhatters. While I'm not into that myself (RPF is weird to me, though I'm not opposed to reading just for porn), I thought it's just a bunch of overexcited fans who project their fantasies on random people. Hobbit fandom and Armitage Army are generally very tame and nice, so I found it hard to believe that there are people like that there. But then I read the comments and, well.

Some people claimed that they're totally together because they spend a lot of time together and supposedly give each other lovey dovey eyes, which is ok. I personally don't see it that way but shipping is like that. I see Thorin and Kili together, others see Bagginshield and FiliKili, so *shrugs*. But then, when some people pointed out that Richard and Lee stay away from each other in events and refuse to answer questions about each other, these fans said that it totally prove that they're together because why else would two people keep a certain distance from each other and not talk much about each other unless they're really together?? Uh, idk. Maybe they don't confirm because they're not together? Just a thought.

This is really like an argument with conspiracy theorist, isn't it? These fans have made up their mind about something, regardless of whether it has evidence or not. There's no point in arguing with them because they basically reply to every point you make against them with "it's totally real and you're an idiot for not believing it!", which isn't a good counterargument at all - it's essentially a child stomping her foot to get what she wants. I guess it's not really incorrect to call these fans tinhatters, after all.

I'm not saying that RichLee is real or not real. I obviously don't know for sure, though my opinion is leaning toward no. But it's just an opinion. I just want to say that, really these fans *shakes head*.

Oct. 30th, 2014

I guess my dad's death has affected me more than I care to admit. I'm getting more and more irritable and my anxiety level often spikes randomly and I get more bouts of depression than ever before. Last year, I got like this maybe once every few months but now it's a near constant state.

I guess you can say the cause is quite shallow; I'm worried about my financial stability. Not that things are bad here or any worse than before. It's business as usual. But I'm constantly fearing that I won't earn enough and won't survive and what will happen when my mom passes away, too? I do my best at work but I'm afraid it's not enough. I want to make extra money but idk how. I thought about taking writing commissions but I doubt people will care because why pay for fanfic when you can get it for free, right?

*sighs* I don't know. Today I feel like I just want to give up on everything.

Simplicity:

About Fili

Keeping this hidden on LJ because voicing non-positive fandom opinion on tumblr is like social suicide and also because there's someone on my dash who lashed out at someone because of this. Ok, here it goes.

I don't care much about Fili. I don't hate him but I don't like him, either. Why? Because both PJ and Tolkien don't tell us much about him. I don't need to explain Tolkien, he doesn't describe the company aside from Thorin and Balin, but PJ is only slightly better in this case. Fili doesn't get much screen time and character development and that is the undisputable truth. It's like 'oh look, he's the heir so he's prepared for responsibilities now let's get back to Thorin's angsting'. I don't know enough about him to like him or hate him and that is the saddest thing that could happen to a character, esp. one who should be as important as he. Honestly, and this is just my opinion here, when I see people praising Fili on my dash, I feel that it's mostly headcannon. There's nothing wrong with headcannon but it's a subjective thing. It's not actually in the films so you shouldn't expect others to share your headcannon automatically. I agree that he's underappreciated but it's hard to find any explicit reason to appreciate him because the author and filmmaker don't seem to be interested in exploring his character and making me like him.

So, yeah. I've been thinking about this for a long while but kept it to myself because that aforementioned person on tumblr who shall remain nameless often goes 'how dare you not like Fili!!'. I don't feel like going into an argument of how I'm entitled to like/dislike/don't care about any character *eyerolls*

(and don't even get me started on Frerin and Dis. They could be Sauron's evil twins for all we know. They're 99% fanon.)
