  • Question: Absolutely LOVED Avengers in 15 minutes. Any thoughts on this new Tom Hiddleston craze? It seems to be taking over tumblr. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Thank you!

    The intensity is weird? And yet kind of just The Way Fandom Works? Like, Tom Hardy seems nice enough, but I don’t get the craze for him, either. I didn’t see Thor until I was working on the Avengers thing, so I ~get~ the Tom Hiddleston thing (which I already knew was huge) now, or at least why he’s become one of those actors that people are wild over if they’re going to be wild over someone anyway, but… I don’t know?

    I think I personally try to keep my interests spread out over different fandoms and people, because I don’t want to become identified with fangirling a single, specific actor. (“That Twilight blogger” was unfortunate enough.) Like, I would rather be known as a stan for Pallas cats; Pallas cats don’t care. I get kind of queasy about everyone going around being like “You liiiii~iiiiike him,” for any value of him, though.
