Piper Tate! Circuit Chaps!
Gotta love Piper!
Ah yes, new season. Good yes.
Karen Gillan wants to be a part of Inspector Spacetime, and The Inspector couldn’t be happier!
Fan I Am: Hyperreal Fandom and Parody
Here it is (finally), the lecture given on Inspector Spacetime and fandom at NIU this past Friday.
Although he got a few things wrong (the second clip was from Christmas, not Chaos theory; amount of gay Inspectors, etc.) this was very interesting. Sometimes I feel like people get the fandom wrong- if only because there are so many interpretations within Inspector Spacetime and we are constantly changing and adjusting and adding and removing what is canon -but this felt pretty on point.
Is it bad that when I saw this, even before I saw the gif, I thought Brooke Rhapsody?
I never usually do text posts, most of them are just basic posts whenever I do a poster design.
But I thought I would share this picture that the awesome Travis Richey sent me earlier today. If you can’t quite decipher it from the pictures, its of the actual Inspector Spacetime signing a few of my posters.
I am very excited to receive them in the post.
So just to reiterate, Inspector Spacetime got hold of a few of my posters, signed them and is sending some back to me for me to give away.
I WANT ONE OF THESE PLEASE. I NEED IT IN MY LIFE.
The Doctor to Inspector ratio is gravely unnatural.
You’re right. Not enough Inspector.
…I think I might watch Inspector Spacetime. You can send me a link to the episodes, right?”
Cue laughing from me. Because that friend’s been making fun of me for obsessing about it while he thought it was a real actual show. Like I was making a fan radio play instead of a hopefully-canon-if-people-accept-it one and stuff.
I consider this a success. For both fake fandoms in general and especially Inspector Spacetime.
And soon he shall be converted and become a member of the Inspectrum.
I must find the fandom
