Today at lunch I had an interesting Korean ice cream, dripped the ice cream down my blouse and on my shoe, and took a walk around campus. Well. I was walking whilst eating the ice cream.

ME: Lovely, lovely Korean ice cream. With solid chocolate in the middle! I miss South Korea!
ME: Oooh hibiscuses! Oooh dahlias! Oooh huge glob of ice cream on my shoe...fuck...
PASSERBY: Why is that girl nudging the plants...with her foot...
PASSERBY: She's waving a popsickle stick. Dripping with bits of...a drippy thing.

All of which were very exciting.

Then I met up with two new friends from one of my courses. I asked them if they had any fandoms. They asked me if I had any fandoms. I was chattering happily about books and a few shows and a few movies when they kindly let me know that...no...they're not involved in any fandoms.

FRIEND: I'm pretty sure Teddy Lupin did not date Cho Chang. I'm pretty sure Teddy Lupin WAS A BABY.
ME: IN MY WIP THEY WILL BE DATING AND TEDDY IS 26 AND CHO IS 45.
FRIEND: She's raving. She's got ice cream stains on her blouse and shoe, and she's raving.

I felt like Alice stumbling out of the rabbit hole. It was still exciting to introduce people to the concept of fandom and transformative works.

Another thing which excites me, speaking of fannishness, is the She-Wolves of Winterfell which George R.R. Martin has planned to be a future installment of Dunk and Egg. I KNOW I KNOW he said he won't be touching it before he finishes Winds, BUT I AM SO THIRSTY FOR IT. Stark ladies! A GROUP OF FORMIDABLE STARK LADIES. MORE INFO ABOUT THE STARK FAMILY. 80 years ago! Will Old Nan be there? I'd love to write fic in her pov. Will Lyarra be mentioned? *GRABBY HANDS*

What are some exciting things which happened to you post-Easter hols? What are you excited about, generally?
