I feel like cats and I have mutual respect for each other, but we’re not big fans of each other’s work.


"There was a lot of sitting up on my own all night long battling with the puzzle this time, probably more than before. I had a dartboard in the back garden, and I’d throw arrows as I’d sit there trying to write. There was definitely some symmetry in how the words were going and where the darts would land; a fair amount of missing the board altogether brought me the occasional treble 20." — Alex on the making of AM

Tatiana Maslany holds her award for ‘Lead Dramatic Actress’ for her role on ‘Orphan Black’ at the 2014 Canadian Screen awards.

“What is significant about fan fiction is that it often spins the kind of stories that showrunners wouldn’t think to tell, because fanficcers often come from a different demographic. The discomfort seems to be not that the shows are being reinterpreted by fans, but that they are being reinterpreted by the wrong sorts of fans - women, people of colour, queer kids, horny teenagers, people who are not professional writers, people who actually care about continuity (sorry). The proper way for cultural mythmaking to progress, it is implied, is for privileged men to recreate the works of privileged men from previous generations whilst everyone else listens quietly. That’s how it’s always been done. That’s how it should be done in the future, whatever Tumblr says.
But time can be rewritten. Myths can bend and change. Something new and exciting is happening in the world of storytelling, and fans are an important part of it.”
