fandom is my happy place

New icon, gorgeous Viggo, from this year, I think, made by the lovely and talented stormatdusk

Viggo & Sean, laughing, with swordFrom Empire (UK magazine), scans of the Viggo & Sean Bean article from those Empire awards, with silly snarky interview answers. Just look at them! (Viggo-Works is fabulous!) I might have to own this on paper, it's so good.

Also, if anyone wants to make me an icon of the two of them from this event, not necessarily this picture, I would be thrilled and grateful.

There's also a wonderful new Dom site, The Dominic Monaghan Resource, which has a fantastic collection of articles and interviews, from the 1990s on. Interviews are such character gold.

qthelights is working on her thesis on fandom, and needs some help. She's studying ...why some online communities last and why some don't. I plan to look at the fandom community in order to examine the ways in which it has lasted. Within this, I will be looking at: the strengths of ties between people... and has a short poll about which fandoms you're in, how long, what you do in those fandoms, etc. It took me about 10 minutes to fill out, and really interesting questions and answers: Fandom Poll. (btw, the usernames will not be in the final thesis, but they are "visible to all").

I thought I'd answered the poll once before, but apparently not. I wish the questions about friendship had been more nuanced. There's a heck of a gap between 'a few of them' and 'around half'.

Very nice scans. :)

You probably did, she had to re-do it because LJ was being dumb.

Great photo of the two of them. I love how the friendships from that movie has lasted. And I love that even 10 years later, the two of them still use the term "the Hobbits" to refer to Dom, Billy, and Elijah. (and probably Orlando as well)

Just so cool.

Yes, I think they partly say those things because they know we love it. *happy sigh*

oh also? *stares* Why did I never write Viggo/Bean??

oh I so love that all our boys are still in touch.

Oh and the least I can do is make you an icon of 'em from the awards. I will get right on it!!

Happy to, all those articles make me so happy! So what if he contradicts himself, that's just more interesting. You did see the Inked tattoo one where he complains that the tattoo didn't hurt enough?

Aw, they link to Shawcrossing. That warms my tiny shriveled heart. \:D/

(Requiring an account is kind of lame, though.)

The scans are great, but that one's good enough to KEEP.

Would you like my copy when I'm done? I'll only recycle it otherwise.

... and I've got a copy of Observer Magazine from last Sunday. Viggo on the front, pretty Viggo pics inside and a long interview.

Free to a good home. Would you pimp?

Um.

I'm not even in that fandom anymore. I don't even like Viggo. I like Viggo/Sean even less.

But this photo... *ogles* This is enough to make me have a re-lapse!!!

That Empire scan is pure gold, absolutely one of the most fun things I've read and seen in ages. And thanks for the new Dom resource. I've added it to my bookmarks.
