Despite all the ranting I'm about to do, I didn't hate this episode.  I loved the angst, every bit of it, even if it wasn't exactly the sort of angst I wanted.  And I certainly enjoyed all the pretty.  

I just spend so much time in fandom, where there is amazing writing and character development and sensitive handling of issues like, oh, gender and consent and such things, and then.  And then I remember that canon is nothing like fandom.  

After this, I plan to go pull the warm blanket of fanfiction up around my ears and get cozy.  Or skip on over to one of those fandoms like Suits or White Collar where the bad-ass woman gets included in lots of sexy threesome fics.

This is just a rant about sexism and black-and-white conceptions morality from someone who really ought to know better than to expect different from a show like Merlin. And yet. Spoilers under the cut. )

About a month ago, I spilled coffee on my laptop. And then, obviously, I freaked the fuck out. As one does. 

Because that computer had my LIFE on it. I study digital culture, but I don't think I truly appreciated the concept of an information economy until I lost the information I owned. I had most of it backed up, but nothing from the most recent month: all the work for school, the music I had bought, the audio project that took hours of work, all my emails, gone. 

I went back and forth between morosely proclaiming, "My computer is broken," and "My computer is dead." Broken didn't seem to encompass the the finality of it, nor justify all my huffy puffy panic. Dead felt a little dramatic, but my panic was kind of EPIC PRPORTIONS at that point, and even the significant other was refraining from making fun of me, which is a bad, bad sign. So I, in all my emo frantic-ness, wrote out a grieving process for my laptop. Because it seemed like the thing to do.

 
It went like this.

Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance, Resurrection, Puppies and Dildos. No really, those are the stages.. )
