The thing about Person of Interest is that I really, really like almost every single thing about it, except the main character.

Which is a problem. And the reason it's taken me so long to finish watching season 1. (I currently have the finale paused, because attention spans are for people without laptops.)

And it's not even Reese's fault, really. As representations of his trope go, he's a good one. It's just that his trope - the insanely competent, unassailably confident white male superman - has been shoved down my throat as an admirable hero in too much media over the course of my life for me to have any patience for it at all.

Whoops, apparently this is a "shows fandom loves that I have issues with" series. Next up: Night Vale! (Not really, I love Night Vale.)


Favourite fanwork from this week:

I'm already on the topic, so this piece of Night Vale as a dating sim fanart by [tumblr.com profile] ajmartinsson, which is freaking adorable in an appropriately creepy way. I don't dating sim but I'm kind of fascinated by the idea, and I would definitely play this one if it existed.
