honeymoon is an interesting term because an actual moon made of honey would imply space bees which is pretty horrifying
thegenuflector said: Who do you reckon is the best dressed person so far in the MCU?
i think black widow has the most potential to be “best dressed” because she’s so good at disguises, but i suspect her personal taste is probably more like “comfortable and blends into a crowd.”
there are a lot of characters in the MCU now, but as far as i remember the best dressed is either pepper potts or loki (or possibly frigga). pepper clearly has a lot of interest in fashion, and a bank balance to back it up. loki is vain, has shapeshifting powers and wears a lot of sparkly armour, BUT the armour we see him wearing is probably ~official prince armour~ or something, whereas frigga’s clothes are more like really expensive, classy, formal asgardian gowns. so i’m stuck between those three characters, i think.

You should ask the careers advice service at your college about this, and look online for career guides from within the publishing industry. Also, look for internships.
Anonymous said: I'm a professional-type person in my mid-20s and would never confess to anyone I know that I read fanfiction, because of the inevitable stigma (it's like porn, but with emotions for teenage girls which is FUCKED up but not a hill I care to die on). I don't see you have trouble with any of that--your real name is attached to this blog, and you've made a career out of it with Big Bang Press. Do you just not encounter that, or do you have a specific way of brushing off the haters?
i’ve never really experienced any stigma attached to fandom. like, i was a relatively nerdy teen, but all of my friends knew about fanfic because Harry Potter and the LOTR movies came out while we were in high school. my parents were aware of my fandom hobbies and their only real objection was “why don’t you spend more time studying.” then as an adult, people either know about fanfic already, or they find the idea interesting when i tell them about Big Bang Press, or it just doesn’t come up in conversation. if it comes up, it comes up, you know? and it’s highly unlikely to come up in a conversation with your 40-year-old male boss, or whatever.
obviously this kind of thing is dependent on your surroundings, though. i’m lucky to have built a career around fan culture, and to have friends who don’t find that weird. but even when i was working in totally everyday jobs, there were still people there who read fanfic or used tumblr or whatever. it’s pretty mainstream now. for example, in my last call centre job i sat next to a guy who wrote pokemon fanfic (or maybe it was transformers, i can’t remember), and he just brought it up in conversation organically.
