The other day in my favourite pub
- Me: I don't believe in this bias against pit bulls. I think it all depends on how you raise the dog. I met a pit bull here few months back and it was adorable, just wanted to be petted.
- Dude: Oh really? My own pit bull bite me in the ass few weeks ago, because I was fighting with my bro. And I did not raise her to do that.
- Me: I wouldn't hold that against the whole kind, wait, I took picture of that dog here, it's here in my phone.
- Dude: That's my fucking dog! I am starting to think she just hates men.

The Voyager we love is the Voyager we made up
This interview with Ron Moore gave me the sads. It gave some definition to what I’d been feeling for a long time: that Voyager was the show it was because no one cared enough to make it otherwise. No one believed in it, no one loved it. It was a show that didn’t even believe in itself.
When I think of what I love about Voyager, I’m left with the depressing realization that the show I’m so fond of was not the show on the screen. I think fans of Voyager, whether they realize it or not, have essentially created a second Voyager in their minds, where the characters actually interact beyond the superficial and the story arcs have meaning and consequence.
You know, when I first started looking for DS9 fiction, I was shocked by the lack of it. And when I say lack, I’m comparing it to the virtual LIBRARY that’s been written for Voyager. DS9 fic is pretty much Garak/Bashir or bust. At first, I figured this was just because queer pairings often get a lot of attention because you don’t see them on the actual show, and fanfic is so much about getting to see things the show won’t give you.
And then I realized that’s probably why there’s so much Voyager fic. The show wouldn’t give us anything. DS9, in a sense, didn’t require fic. The show itself was like fic. Voyager didn’t just inspire fic, it required it. If you wanted to see the characters love, or grow, or experience consequence, you had to turn to fic.
We didn’t just have to read between the lines, we had to WRITE between them too.
Seriously, if you haven’t read the interview with Ron Moore, do that.
I don’t think there is anything worth saying about the latest OUAT. Let’s just say that my dear roommie predicted my reaction based on the spoilers - that it would be that kind of rage on my part when I just sit with a drink in hand, not saying a thing for hours and then break into a long rant about everything.
