Hello FanStuffs, Goodbye Money: This Is My Cup Of Tea

I'm too tired not to find this hilarious.

Prepare yourself for me sounding like a low budget commercial.

As you know, I'll be doing a giveaway here in a bit for the one year anniversary of the blog, and I had decided a while back to do tea or coffee for my next giveaway.

I remembered that Adagio Teas makes fandom teas, so I went over to give them a look.

It's amazing.

They not only have fandom teas, but they have collections. And ships. You can ship the teas with other teas. And you get 10% off if you buy two teas that are in a ship together. And they have framed sets, so you can put them in your house. I cannot contain all of my happy. You got a fandom? They've probably got a tea. Buffy, Supernatural, Sherlock, Doctor Who... the list goes on. And on. You may be asking yourself, "Self? What if they don't have a tea for my fandom? Or they do and I don't like it?" You can make them. You can make your own teas. It's a dream come true.

I think this is a wonderful thing. Not just because you can sit down after a long day and have a big cup of Castiel, although that is a plus. But because that means that the fandoms are spreading out into the world. Into other things and places. Beyond the reach of the internet and into a corporeal space.

Love me a corporeal space.

The link to the main site is here, the link to the fandom page is here, and I'll be all the way over here with the order form. 'Cause I needz it.

Last Tango In Hali--GREG

I watch a British television show called" Last Tango In Halifax." It's about old people in love, life, and an untangle-able web of lies. Really untangle-able. Don't even try.

It's lovely.

The new season has started up a few weeks ago. And I was just watching along, when who shows up but DI GREG LESTRADE.

That's really all I've been thinking about. Greg. GregGregGregGreg. As you know, I love Greg. Not just the character, but the actor too. Rupert Graves is very talented. I'm going to try to find "'Tis a Pity She's a Whore", because my godmother saw that in theater and was very impressed with him.

But, he'll always be Greg to me.

My Shipper Heart Is Full Of Rainbows And Hope

Shaw x Root. Of love.

As of last night, Shaw x Root hath become canon.

And I'm kinda freaking out about it.

I've never had a ship that's become canon before. It's a brave new world. A world full of hope and rainbows. Mostly the rainbows.

Of course, I've shipped canon ships, Sheldon and Amy for example. But I've never shipped something from its fledgling state unto existence before.

I'm all bubbly and happy inside. And I don't know why. It's not my OTP, more like the kind of ship one ships whilst watching the show, and then doesn't really think about for a week. But I can't help it. Maybe it's because it gives me hope for other ships. Maybe it's because they're adorable together. Maybe it's because I Googled them and like all my Google searches I ended up looking at harp seals.

I don't know. I just know I'm full of rainbows and hope. Also, if they kill off Shaw I will be writing a letter. That letter will be something along the lines off, "WHY MUST YOU HURT ME SO? *strong letter to follow*", but it shall be a letter. And it will probably be written in my tears. Or ink depending on how I feel.

One of the things that is coming up this year is guest blogging! I'm very excited at the prospect, so if you or someone you know would be interested, do tell me in the comments.

My Feels Through GIFs: I'm Not Dead, I Promise

And unlike Angelus, I'm not gonna murder a bunch of people.
Hi Fanlings! How are you? I can't hear you and I don't care. JK. So about a week before Thanksgiving, I got sick. And until now, I've been getting sicker and sicker. I mean, ear infections, sinus infection, a cold, the flu, "Dermatemeculitis," even "Stickittothemaneosis." You name it, I had it at some point in the past month or so.
Me when I had to leave the house.
Anyway, I'm better FINALLY and will resume normal posting. W00t.

The 7th of February will be the one year anniversary of my blog, so yay. Thanks to all of you who have stuck with me, and to all the new people for joining the craziness. I'm gonna be doing a giveaway, so if you have any ideas/things you want, do tell. I'm thinking fandom teas and mugs....

I bloody love tea.
I've been thinking about redoing the blog. Getting a new look. Jazzing it up. Making things a little more me, a little less Rustic British Star-Burst.

Four words. Super. Hero. Gophers. Everywhere.

Or Happy Emo Harp Seal. Probably Happy Emo Harp Seal, as that is my occupation.

*listens to Fall Out Boy*
I know this is a fandom blog. But lately, I've found myself writing things--good things--that aren't fandom related. This will remain at its essence a fandom blog, but I feel that I've grown as a writer into a place where I don't just want to talk about Benedict Cumberbatch anymore. I want to talk about the world we--Benny included--live in. And as someone who wants to do this for a living, I want to get out there as more than a fandom exclusive blogger. And by this, I mean this:

This is really close to how I type. I'm more passionate.
Since it's the end of the year, I decided to make a list of my top five favorite posts from 2014.

Everything You Need To Know About: Shipping

Vatican Cameos!! (What It Means) 

Ships: Why It Gotta Be Gay? 

Doctor John H. Watson Appreciation Post 

Jarsen the Fandom Panda and the Neon Volvo

One of  my cats has sat upon me, which means that I've been writing for too long and the cats think the computer has eaten my brain and they will have to revive me. If you have anything you want to see a post about in the new year, lemme know.

See ya.
