Not book-related, unless you count novelizations and spin-off adaptations, just an "ugh" moment I needed to share.

 

This is supposed to be genderbent Freddy and Jason. It showed up on my Facebook feed. Some people have voiced their disapproval and have, of course, been met with "accurate genderbent versions wouldn't sell" (although fandoms regularly care very much about accuracy) and "who cares?" Mostly, though, there are many variations of "OMG take my money!!!"

 

Sometimes fandoms energize me and make me happy. And sometimes they just make me tired.
