It was lovely having my brother involved because I got to hang out with him in South Africa for a while. When you grow up and you become adults and you start having kids and all that stuff, you don’t get to see as much of each other as you’d like. So it was really cool hanging with him for like three months and getting to see loads of him. (x)
One of my favorite things about both Spies are Forever and Poe Party is that, while they have their share of romance, they both emphasize other types of relationships, especially friendships, more than romantic relationships. I think we need more stories like that.
Speaking of which, the Tin Can Brothers are VERY CLOSE to being able to make Wayward Guide for the Untrained Eye, which they have already stated is not a romantic story. It’s also set to feature many cast members from both Spies and Poe Party (in addition to a bunch of other awesome people). However, they still need to raise almost $8,000 by Sunday afternoon or it won’t get made. Literally every dollar helps, and this really needs to be a thing, so please pledge if you can, share if you can’t!
The fact that Kat had to remind people that they’re not their characters… I feel real sad for the actors, who’ve been nothing but kind & friendly, and for the rest of us decent fans, just bc some people couldn’t separate the show from reality. I know no fandom is perfect, but I had hoped it wouldn’t get to this point where actors feel the need to address this. I’m sure there’s only a few of them, but those overzealous ‘fans’ are giving the fandom a bad name, and I am extremely disappointed & disgusted with those people. I hope they realize what they’re doing and feel bad about it.
