Between my cold and my workplace doing everything possible to irritate me today, I am in a rotten non-productive mood. So I went through my flist in detail in an attempt to cheer myself up, and there were several fun posts from crafty_tardis
(slogan: "For when you absolutely, postively must have a macrame Dalek"
). It's always good for either the LOLOL (knitted jelly babies) or the OMFGawesome (ONE DAY, I WILL HAVE A TOM BAKER SCARF, I PROMISE YOU).
That's when I realized...this is what the Heroes fandom needs
, to sustain us all and give us something positive to giggle over during the long dark teatime of the soul that is the current hiatus. A community called crafty_heroes
. So, despite the fact that I have missed writing deadlines that I need to catch up on, and I have lots of other demands on my time, and I am still in my slow winter sloth stage...I am seriously considering searching around on the Internetz and LJ to see if it looks like there might be enough people sharing silly Heroes crafts to keep a comm like that active. (Anyone know if there's something like this out there on LJ, or elsewhere?)
I'm not talking about NC-17 slash fanart here; I'm talking scrapbooking pages or knitting a replica of Mohinder's hideous scarf or making a Sylar outfit for your Ken doll. Sure, it's kinda cheesy, but we could use some good clean non-guilty fun now and then.
