Fandom as seen through the wrong end of the telescope

I can't decide whether to put out my action figures in my new home. It's not that I'm ashamed of them, it's that they don't quite go with the decor, and there's only the one, very small, room.

It's strange and disorienting to go from an environment in which eccentricity of character is practically viewed (if incorrectly so) as a badge of intellect to one in which it exists, on sufferance, in tiny zones of tolerance.

Think of it as a protective zone. If I owned Lex, I'd make him live in a bubble too. Or at least wear a helmet.
