yes hello hi I’m ryn I post in varying degrees of comprehensibility and pretentious articulation about hannibal, sherlock, elementary, les miserables, and various other assorted media including but not limited to vikings, the hour, and luther.
I’m a grad student with a full-time job and my research interests are primarily the construction and representation of the crime scene as a queer space (and how that functions narratively), detection as a narrative enterprise (or what I’ve very cleverly dubbed ‘the problem of solving’ /eyerolling @ self), fandoms and reception strategies (especially the struggle within marginalized groups to find safe fandom space), and the characteristics of enduringly popular narratives over multiple platforms and their representation in the cultural psyche (see: various adaptations of sherlock holmes, les miserables, and the hannibal series). Posts of this nature will often be tagged theory and criticism, and sometimes academica.
I’m really queer and jewish and I love female characters and 95% of my ships can be summed up with the phrase “cis white dudes on opposite sides of the law” because we can never have nice things.
I write fic and songs and make vids and graphics and fanmixes and that is the only evidence I have that I am actually a person who can exist in the world and that evidence can be found here.
For a slightly less comprehensive write-up, several shipping tags, and links to my other blogs, see my about page.
