What is significant about fan fiction is that it often spins the kind of stories that showrunners wouldn’t think to tell, because fanficcers often come from a different demographic. The discomfort seems to be not that the shows are being reinterpreted by fans, but that they are being reinterpreted by the wrong sorts of fans - women, people of colour, queer kids, horny teenagers, people who are not professional writers, people who actually care about continuity (sorry). The proper way for cultural mythmaking to progress, it is implied, is for privileged men to recreate the works of privileged men from previous generations whilst everyone else listens quietly.

I’M SO FUCKING READY FOR THE RENEWAL OF THE SHELDON/HOWARD HATEMANCE

Tbh it’s kind of like watching two peacocks circling each other while strutting and preening their feathers only there isn’t any peahen to impress. Sheldon just wants to ASSERT HIS INTELLECTUAL DOMINANCE and Howard wants to PROVE HIS WORTH, but basically they’re both spreading their plumage at each other to show how pretty their brains are.

It’s beautiful.

AMY FARRAH FOWLER FEELING LIKE THE POPULAR GIRL IN HIGH SCHOOL AND LOVING IT THE. GODDAMN. FUCKING. SPITBALL. (((OH MY G O D)))

AMY WAS SO PRECIOUS AND CUTE????

IT’S LIKE SHE GETS TOTALLY INTO TALKING SMACK BUT IN A WAY THAT’S WITH ALL THE BRIGHT-EYED ENTHUSIASM OF SOMEONE WHO WAS ASKED TO PROM BY TWO VARSITY FOOTBALL STARS AND ALSO SHE WAS PREEMPTIVELY CROWNED THE QUEEN???

re: the spitball: the face sheldon makes okay.  the utter look of repulsed horror that howard spits in his mouth (AND DOWN HIS THROAT). new favorite howard/sheldon moment of forever.

Nominating About You Now by One Night Only as the official Shelnard theme.

oh god kill me why don’t you

If we’re talking post-S7 finale sad feels, here’s my nomination:

Bullet Train by Stephen Swartz (feat. Joni Fatora)

Moving like the speed of sound
Feet can’t keep on the ground
Can’t stay in one place
Keep moving like a bullet train
Like a bullet train

'Cause I can't stop time
You keep blurring in my mind
And spaces undefined
These tracks left behind
We can’t stay the same
Can’t stop this train
I can’t find the brakes
On this bullet train

#if tbbt wasn't filmed in a standardly static multiple-camera setup for sitcoms #i would be making the saddest fanvids ever #it's probably for the best that there are no dramatic sweeping camera motions #is what i'm saying #shelnard #the big bang theory #cries about it

guys i just wanna be real and put it out there that stuart is the rockstar of the premiere

every single scene of his is dynamite

#KALEY'S NEW HAIRCUT IS THE CUTEST HAIRCUT #i made noises when i saw it i gotta say #the big bang theory #tbbt cast

zaxal replied to your post: just got back from the tbbt taping and…

I CAN DIE HAPPY (i mean still in pain bc this cannot last 5ever) BUT I MEAN I’LL TAKE IT LEONARD SEE HE NEED U DON’T LET ANYONE EVER TELL U OTHERWISE

I have a lot of feelings about Sheldon calling Leonard and depending on Leonard to come pick him up because he actually calls him as a friend. He doesn’t call him thinking of it in terms of Leonard is basically my slave; of course he will come get me.  He calls him because he is super distraught and upset at having failed to live on his own and he trusts Leonard to come help him when he is feeling so emotionally fragile and vulnerable and needing someone who makes him feel safe

I mean the scene is also so sad because Sheldon treats Amy, whom Leonard had invited along, like absolute garbage ugh

but after so many seasons of mounting strife between Sheldon and Leonard, getting to have another moment where there’s something truly heartfelt between them is like stumbling across water in the goddamn desert.  YOU FEEL ME?  

I’m getting a little emotional again just thinking about it.
