Fascinating. Once upon a time there was a magazine called Horizon. I was eight when it first came out and intrigued by the notion of a magazine with hard covers. In the ensuing years I read my father's copies, in bits and pieces, because seriously, the late 50s/ early 60s mostly-New York art and theatre scene is kind of beyond a Toronto kid's comprehension. I wish we had those early copies still. I fancy they were the source of my vague notion of what Beat poetry and Nichols and May were all about. Alas, we gave Dad's Horizons to the Art Gallery when he died.

I see memes going around- the Fandom Sins meme, the shipping meme, and I... um, am at a loss. 'My concept of shipping'? 'Cosplay and mimicking characters?'
Have you ever
Stalked some one online/at a con/at school, because of who they cosplayed/RP/remind you of?
Claimed a character as your muse/soulbond/head mate?
Claimed you ARE a given character?
To paraphrase the Brit sitcom that ran before, well, most of you guys were born, "they didn't do things like that when we were alive."

Trundles off with her walker and her fleecy booties...

...still muttering 'Concept of *shipping*???'
