Internet fandom has been sadly absent from my life this year. Whether I’ve been too distracted by my new job or whatever, there has been this unhappy, empty hole once filled with art and writing and fangirls; that pure, uncomplicated joy that comes from sharing fandom with other people. The feeling of falling in love with story, and finding other people who love it too. And, if you both love the same story and characters for long enough, you occasionally find that you love that person too. I’ve missed that.

Happily, I think it’s coming back, and I’d be a hell of a lot more thrilled if it didn’t revolve around Mark Wahlberg.
 


 
 
Nothing against Mark. He’s a talented guy, when he picks good films. And he’s sexy. Totally sexy. Vh1 once voted him the sexiest artist of the 90s, and Vh1 has never lied to me.



 
 
 
So why do I feel so betrayed?


Okay, so he was a giant douche. A douche so massive, he could have been a spokesperson for a line of Summer’s Eve products. This is a man who used to pants himself on stage, and inspired the fashion choices for a generation of date raping frat boys. But – he’s not like that anymore! I think. Whatever. I’m not happy with what my hormones have done to me, but I’m going to embrace it in honor of fandom.

Except he has no fandom. No one likes him. Shit.

 
Dignam does not care if you like him.

Mark hasn’t been in very many fandom friendly movies – a few people wrote some fic for The Departed, but it was depressing as hell, and despite my belief that The Other Guys has a great slash dynamic, nobody wants to slash Will Ferrell. Nobody.

 
Even though some people might find something disturbingly cute about the idea. Some people. I'm not naming names.

So, regardless, I’m going to put up this picspam, because I refuse to enter and leave a fandom (or even this non-fandom) without leaving a footprint. If anyone thinks these are cute, leave a comment saying so. Hell, maybe I’ll meet a few friends.

 


 



 
It's probably best to ignore that Mark Wahlberg ever existed in the 90's, but I rather like this picture.


 
This one too.

I should do all of my posts in the style of a cracked article.

Awww, bb, what I think is that YOU are cute. And hilariously funny. I love this picspam and all your comments.

And I have missed you in fandom!

Oooh, your photos violated photobucket's terms of service! Now I can't see them and I'm all curious and stuff!

No, YOU are cute! And talented, and awesome, and I love you an amazing amount. And I miss sharing fandom with you, but am confident that we shall intersect again.

My photos are ALL showing up for me - did only certain ones violate photobucket, or just the nearly nude ones?

The last two are missing. Stupid photobucket! Maybe tinypic will not censor them?

Also - are you around? Would love to chat! <33333

Hi! I really miss being around, and I'd love to rectify that. I need to read more of your fic. And more of Skyblues. And more fic in general.

It's weird that y'all can't see all the pics here, because I sure can. Is the coppertone add one missing? That would be the last one. I'm actually quite fond of it. :)
