like many other fandom fic writers, I’m spending time today trying to wrap my head around how season two changes things…….or doesn’t. We got a lot of interesting new material yesterday; not all of it I agree with; but it’s canon? A couple other writers on tumblr have already responded with similar thoughts to mine, and I really strongly agree: I’m not one to disregard that, either. It’s a challenge to work around.
I’m not sure how this affects things, yet. Most of what I fling into fandom is AU in one aspect or another (AU series, obviously; to say nothing of Smol Shiro), but I do like to keep these grounded as much in canon/paralleling canon as much as possible. And this is…season two is so tightly wound, in terms of plot. Where do you fit things in? Season One was way more episodic, and a bit looser. Season Two drove us forwards practically from episode three, connecting and connecting and connecting. I haven’t done a full rewatch yet, so I could be wrong, but the Slots for Adventure Opportunities in Season Two are definitely smaller than in Season One. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just…a challenge.
This…I said yesterday this made my brain hurt?
My brain still hurts.
