…about the last episode of Lily & James, about the first chapter of the series, about the KitR fandom experience so far. We wanna know all the things!
And here’s how we feel about every single one of you:
There will be a separate post collecting thoughts on the transmedia experiment next week. Canonization will continue through this week, the experiment will conclude on Monday, 4/28 with a final drabble from yulinkuang.
Thank you so much for watching with us, we would kiss you all in the pouring rain if we could!
What did I think?
I loved it. But you knew that, right?
I think it was a gift. A gift conjured out of thin air by mad magicians who used cameras and lights, PVC and sprinklers, and transformed them into moments of beauty.
It was a gift of talent and imagination and humor. It was a gift of people willing to spend their few precious dollars, and something even more precious: their time, their nights and their weekends, to make something cool and give it away to strangers for free.
"The digital world can be an environment rich in humanity, a network not of wires but of people," said Pope Francis back in January. “The Internet, in particular, offers immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity. This is something truly good, a gift from God.”
I can’t verify the God part. But the rest is dead on, and Kissing in the Rain is the best example I know of what he was talking about. Because it was a gift.
To speak more specifically I’d have to watch all the Lily and James episodes again, so I could comment on my favorite parts of each. Which is clearly impossible. “I’m far too busy, so ask me now before I can become sane.”
