Just a lttle something to mull over
Thought I'd put a little post up.
I’m really only into the HP fandom on the net. I write and read fanfiction mainly about Snape.
Dr Who is also big on my consciousness, as I used to watch Pertwee and Baker (Tom) when I was a child. Now with kids, I’m watching the new ones with glee but haven’t got into the fandom at all – yet. The plot bunnies are beginning to simmer.
Now I hear about Amine, Avator and Manga. I haven’t seen any of them but wonder if it any of them are like the strip cartoon books I used to read when I lived in Malaysia in the sixties. Used to get them from our maid. Learnt how to hammer nails into skulls for murder, devils being ingested and zombies with extra long tongues. The zombies, I used to see at the cinema. Fantastic films – leaping onto roofs, heads being decapitated and loads of sword fighting. What more could a girl of eight want? Didn’t read or speak Chinese (the films did have subtitles – in five langauges) but it didn’t lessen the enjoyment of the gore.
Somehow, I didn’t turn out violent: not that I don’t have violent thoughts occasionally. Except, I did once throw a hammer at my younger brother when he literally made me see red. Luckily, I managed to squeak out a, “Duck” as it left my hand. I was twelve at the time, and have never ‘lost’ it since – scared me s**tless, because I’m very accurate when cross.
