My husband labelled me. I’m sane!
Walker Stalker Con is upon us! As I’m sure many of you know, Melissa and Norman will both be attending! I’ll be attending myself, and I would love, love, love to snag some autographs to give away for the ship, but we’ve got a problem.
As some of you know, a few…
selbyzipper said: I would love to give you a fandom for the in depth fandom questions, but I don't know what else you fandom over besides Walking Dead. so either do that or one of your own choosing.
Top 5 favourite characters: Lori Grimes, Carol Peletier, Merle Dixon, Carl Grimes, Hershel Greene
Other characters you like: Bob Stookey, Tara Chambler, Tyreese
Least favourite character: Andrea
Otps: none, maybe Rick/Lori if I had to choose
Notps: Daryl/Beth, or essentially any other much older character paired with her—Merle, Rick, etc.
Favourite friendship: There aren’t many that jump out. Carol/Lori. Carol/Daryl. Carl/Rick, if that counts?
Favourite family: Grimes family!
Favourite episode: Chupacabra
Favourite season/book/movie: Season 2
Favourite quote: "Promise me you’ll always do what’s right."
Moment that made you fangirl/boy the hardest: hmm, I’m not prone to that much. I loved Sophia coming out of the barn.
When it really disappointed you: Season 4. All of it.
Saddest moment: Lori’s death
Most well done character death: Lori’s death. Left me in a funk for a week.
Favourite guest star: I’m gonna say whenever Greg Nicotero gets zombied up :)
Favourite cast member: Melissa McBride
Character you wish was still alive: Merle Dixon
One thing you hope really happens: Rick gets a bit more cohesive and consistent in his approach to things.
Most shocking twist: Sophia in the barn
When did you start watching/reading: Right at the beginning! I love zombie shows.
Trope you wish they would stop using: Repeating the exact same line over and over and over in order to make quasi “meaningful” statements about the story. Drives me up the wall.
One thing this show/book/film does better than others: Letting the actors speak for their characters and shape them. It adds a freshness to the creativity and gives the characters more life than if their roles were simply dictated to the people embodying them.
Funniest moments: There aren’t many. I liked the well walker scene.
Couple you would like to see: I really don’t care, so long as they’re done interestingly
Actor/Actress you want to join the cast: Hmm… I’m gonna say Jim Parsons, just to see what he’d do with it! ;)
Most boring plotline: Milton’s “research” into walkers’ memories. That went nowhere and wasted a ton of screentime.
Best flashback/flashfoward if any: the traffic snarl outside Atlanta.
Most layered character: Rick. As the main character, he’s had the most energy put into his development..
Scariest moment: Rick waking up in the hospital, wandering this horrifying landscape.
Grossest moment: Man, take your pick. There was this walker whose face was mashed through the prison fence. That was pretty cringe-y. But I have a total phobia for missing or damaged teeth, so Andrea breaking the walker’s teeth out with a rock is up there for me.
Best looking male: Hmm… Tyreese or Rick, I’d say.
Best looking female: Carol, imo. She has a delicate, soulful beauty. But Sasha is absolutely stunning and you could make a statue out of her and put it up as a saint or angel in a church.
Who you’re crushing on (if any): Melissa McBride. Yupp. That’s me.
Most beautiful scene (scenery/shot wise): Rick and Shane’s silhouettes in the misty nighttime, with a silvery, giant moon.
Unanswered question/continuity issue/plot error that bugs you: Everything about the murder storyline. It made so little sense it hurts my head to think about.
At what point did you fall in love with this show/book: "Pretty Much Dead Already." I loved it. It made me want to write fanfic again, which is something I hadn’t done for years.
In season 4 she had her family and then she lost everything, and she was really trying to make up for what she’d done, dealing with the grief of her sister and her niece. I think you’re going to see her become a part of the group, and become a valuable member of this little family. Because she’s awesome, she loves to help people out; she loves everyone.

I can’t even get started on this ep or I will never stop. I will cease and desist after saying that I am also not a fan, and repeat NEVER OVER BACKPACK GUY.
I know how you feel about backpack…
I’ll look forward to hearing your thoughts on how Rick misunderstood Carol’s motivations—because he really did. It’s almost like he was trying to exorcize his own bad qualities by projecting them onto her and sending them away. Like a scapegoat in the Old Testament stories, you know?
Now, Rick’s sort of caught up to Carol. We’re supposed to see his throat-ripping incident as a similar kind of extreme taken to protect loved ones. One that seemed horrific, but was necessary, and from which they will move on with their humanity intact. That’s what Carol’s murders were meant to be like, too. They’re on the same page, now.
Do you think they’ll make this a big struggle when Rick and Carol reunite? Or will it be the sort of thing where they quietly come to an understanding, and move on?
I didn’t end up focusing all that much on his misunderstanding of her motivations (though I think that was mostly him projecting his own issues onto her). Instead I focused very much on that. The projection thing. Because I think that was his primary reason for banishing her in the first place.
So, the relevant portion of my Indifference post is under the cut:

Huge victory tonight!! This is my third pair of pants for my cosplay, and I’ve finally got them right!
These are Kenneth Cole “Roll Me Up” cargos. The pants I’ve been using are a different brand entirely, and the first pair of Kenneth Coles I tried to dye never came out right.
These pants started out black. I stripped the color down to a light tan with rit dye remover, used a full box of tan rit dye, and then a small amount of black liquid dye. I wish I’d used less tan, and I may add more yellow and black, but these pants have been eluding me for a full year and I’m thriled to finally have gotten them right!
I just need to talk about the fact that this is the character who’s going to cross enemy lines alone into a sea of walkers, fire, and cannibals to save the entire group
and this is the character that’s going to stay behind in the woods to take care of the baby while she does it
goodbye cliched character tropes we have no use for you here
A message from my mom to all of you: she says “I wish I could bake you cookies!”
My mother has been asking and asking to read something I wrote “for the tumblr.” So she’s got “The Book of Judith” on her Kindle, now. I’ll let you know how this goes…
