Winter Sunlight

Things read lately

So I read this summary of the new Homestuck epilogue and ... wow, okay, that is definitely a thing that exists in the world. I'm glad I didn't attempt to read the actual epilogue itself with my very own eyeballs (fortunately I'd already been warned away) and also somewhat selfishly glad that Homestuck isn't really a thing I'm still into, because that is a seriously sucky thing for a canon to do to you. Poor Homestuck fans.

I guess it's not that much of a shock that it ended on a note of pure disaster, because the author has clearly always enjoyed trolling his readers, but back in the day, the comic also had a lot of touching and heartfelt and genuinely epic moments, and now it's ... that. I'm not sure if I've ever seen a series torpedoed so thoroughly by its own creator, as opposed to being brought down by stupid editorial decisions and the like.

On a happier note, I have also read the next two Taltos books over the last week or two. Mini book reports follow:

Defenders exchange? :D?

So the last-standing of the Netflix Defenders shows, Jessica Jones, will have its final season sometime this summer - they still haven't announced exactly when.

I think when SSR Confidential wraps up, I'd like to run a fandom exchange for the Defendersverse shows, including Punisher. It'll probably be along similar lines to SSR Confidential: fic, art, and vids, probably about the same timespan (a couple of months), wrapping up right around the time that the winter fandom exchanges kick off.

Thoughts? Interest? Kudos? :D?

Before I can really get moving on this, I need a name for it. Something standard, like "Defenders Exchange"? Something cute, like with SSR Confidential - maybe something to do with hot city summers, or something like that? All input is welcome!
