Happy 49th birthday Paul Landers! ♥
"Organics fear us. We wish to understand… not incite.”
I was thinking about this, and you know, I don’t think the fandom quite knows what to do either. Up until entry 80, the fandom awkwardly joked and half laughed about someone dying in an upcoming entry and hoping it wouldn’t happen. Fanfic was written about the future.
A future where someone died, yes, those happened, though not as often. Fic written about a future where it was over and Jay and Tim lived. There was art and fic about trying to get their lives back together and having each other. There was fic about coping with loss, even some very specific fic of our little Jay bird getting shot.
But now that its actually happened though?
I haven’t seen very much fanfic or art looking forward. I think the fandom, much like Tim, is at a loss at what to do next. We can’t move forward from Jay’s death. There have been quite a few beautiful pieces of art and edits and fics about entry 80, but I haven’t seen much about what happens next. We’re stuck. The future is dark.
I don’t know, just some thoughts.
