  1. I understand that this seems somehow weird but isn’t it also a little bit ‘cool’? 🙂

    • I don’t feel that way about it, although a lot of people would. It seems an inescapable part of the way that we do this fandom thing now, and of my own mistakes (I should have tweeted #jedbrophy and not @….).

            • Yeah. I have wrestled with this problem for two years now, and more intensely since Armitage joined Twitter — because how can you write for an audience in social media about a subject without taking the risk that the subject notices you? Not writing isn’t an option for me, and I don’t know how else to find an audience. So there we are. Head down and ignore the rest, I guess.

              • I think about this ‘problem’ too and tell myself that because I am writing a multiple themed blog in German I am not in danger to be noticed from our OdB – yes that’s my narrative and I’ll stick to it!!! 😀

                    • I would pretend I was from Berlin and put every single object in the dative, thus hiding the fact that I still don’t really understand when to use the dative and when to use the accusative (despite years of instruction and badgering from exSO and his family)

                    • oh, and I would pretend the Rechtschreibreform never happened. Well, I pretty much do that anyway, lol.

      • Yes. And I still love the fact that there are so many women there!!!

        • yeah, I thought that was cool, in the dance scenes of the video, all of those dance scenes with mostly women.

          the other thing that occurred to me, watching this, is that Tolkien cosplay is really woman friendly. Everyone looks good dressed up as a dwarf, with elaborate hair, and behind a beard.
