krait: a sea snake (krait) on a blue background (alternate sea krait)
It occurs to me that I never posted anything about having seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, despite having seen it twice.

Primarily because it was a very enjoyable movie... and my reaction was completely unfannish. The force did not awaken for me. The visuals were very nice, well matched to the original, and Rey was a delightfully cheerful and wide-eyed character whose adventures I enjoyed seeing unfold! But apparently that's not enough for whatever tiny midichlorian particle is responsible for creating the urge to join a fandom, and it hasn't happened to me.

Almost by accident, I have read maybe three fics, one of which I did end up in love with: have you heard by peradi. I love stories that explore the intersection of language and culture/language and thought, so the draw is less here's a Star Wars fic than it is here's a really cool story about telling stories. I do think it stands up as a Star Wars fic, too, though! So if you like fics about how stories shape and transmit our worldview and our (counter)culture, check it out. :D

Other than that, I'm somewhat sad that fandom limerence did not happen for me, but not overly surprised (Things Krait has learnt about herself: movies rarely produce the fannish urge.) and everybody else should carry on posting and squeeing and discussing and ficcing about it!

Tag not quite applicable, but it's the only Star Wars tag I have...
