ME Miranda

Obligatory Rant Post of the Week

 Batman fandom makes me want to kill myself. Okay, this is not a new rant but the more I read the more I need to bang my head against the wall. So you might ask why I don't just stop reading and unfriend the comms that are cluttering my profile page. Well, I'm a masochist and I have hope. Two very very bad things. 

I want to say that I'm above all the fangirls who have recently become obsessed with the movie and the Joker. But I'm not. And it's really hard to admit that to myself. Before TDK came out I was by no means all that into Batman. I enjoyed it's various incarnations but it never made the rounds in my fandom gallery (Star trek, BSG, Harry Potter, Buffy, etc.). But now it has. It's more present than ever before.  And I love it.

Random Harley Comment

I'm getting tired of people saying that her name is not Harley Quinzel and never was in any incarnation. That's not entirely true. Her given name was Harleen Quinzel and after meeting the Joker she's now Harley Quinn. But in the animated series she asks the other doctor to call her "Harley" because everyone else does. And this was before meeting the Joker. I can't remember how it went down in the Mad Love comic but since they're both written by Dini and Timm I don't see the big deal. mini rant on ranters over.

btw, you know how I wrote in my last post that I tripped and hit my head on the wall. Well I think I gave myself a concussion.
