How do people multi-fandom?

I mean, I have a side blog for it and everything and I understand loving several tv shows (or any other work of fiction), but genuinely - how do people manage to engage with more than one fandom?

One of the few things in life where it helps to be an old fart.

I’m sure that one day a box full with the lost episodes of the first and second Doctor will appear in front of the BBC building. And there will be a note that will go like:

"Be more careful next time
-The Doctor”

Several people have asked for this, so here it is: Byron the manipulative, creepy cult leader being punched for eternity.

Content warning for violence.

Name a fandom you know I know and I’ll tell you

The first character I first fell in love with
The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
The character everyone else loves that I don’t
The character I love that everyone else hates
The character I used to love but don’t any longer
The character I would totally smooch
The character I’d want to be like
The character I’d slap
A pairing that I love
A pairing that I despise

this cow is prettier than me

Dude someone once told me I look like a cow and I was like “omg really? Have you seen cows? Because I have and they’re fucking gorgeous and adorable, so thanks”

Fun fact: “cow-eyed” was often used to describe Hera’s beauty since the Athenians considered cows faces so beautiful.

what a beautiful cow

“The Time Lords were the Type 4 civilization. We had no equals. We controlled the fundamental forces of the entire universe. Nothing could communicate with us on our level. Most races pray to lesser beings than the Time Lords.”Actually, he is a god. And an alien. I think that’s important to remember…

umm… No equals, huh?








And umm, then there’s this
But you know. He’s a god and has no equal. And all that.

This is why I’ve been liking classic Who for some time now.

That “we had no equals” post simply repeats and doubles down on what the initial post is criticizing: the trend in recent Who to distort the Doctor and Time Lords by equating them with gods.
The classic Doctor was rebelling against the Time Lords for being full of themselves. The fifth Doctor once told his companions that he didn’t use the “Time Lord” moniker for some time after he left Gallifrey because it was overly pompous, and he didn’t want to be associated with what he was rebelling against.
If he thought the “Time Lords” were too full of their own grandiosity, what do you think the classic Doctor would make of that “people pray to us” quote? “Oh, wonderful, as if we weren’t already offending the universe by swanning around as ‘Lords of Time,’ now we’ve promoted ourselves to godhead. I suppose our next step is to join Monarch of the Urbankans in his gross insanity, traveling back to the Big Bang to meet ourselves as The Creator(s). Pardon me if I abstain from this farce.” 
Remember The Face of Evil? The so-named evil in that story was exactly this: treating the Doctor as a god. The Doctor was appalled to find out that he had once screwed up, so that a Cargo Cult type religion grew up in his wake with him being worshipped as a savior-god by one faction and treated as the antichrist by the other. He befriended the one outspoken atheist in that society, and did everything in his power to fix his awful mistake, make amends, and demolish that false religion. He wound up shooting the image of himself in the face to destroy the offensive representation of himself as a god.

Just great! A+ commentary and one of the major reasons I find it so hard to take New Who as being in the same canonical universe as Classic. The characters are totally off!
This improved a lot in Moffat’s Who, but… This is still definitely there.

Okay, but for real though...

If you like sci-fi, or even if you don’t, if you haven’t watched Babylon 5 that is something you really, really, really need to get around to doing. Right now.

I literally could spend my whole life talking about this show and not articulate how fucking awesome it is. Yeah, the graphics are bad…

She is so much older.

Her features are softer, her flirtatiousness abated. All that sass and fire kept neatly behind her professorial title. And she lets him lead. She lets his younger self swoop in and out of deductions and only guides him when he can’t seem to see through his emotions. There’s no teasing or presentation, there’s just her hand to hold. A hand that no longer keeps a sonic blaster but his sonic screwdriver. This isn’t the wild River that baits Sontarans, she’s the Professor that slips her husband a note with a kiss before going to work. She’s so familiar and intimate and that’s why this moment kills me, because she’s giving it all up. She knows that whatever happens today will write their entire story - and without even blinking, she still lets him choose.
