Where Fan Theories Go To Die

So, I guess rather in spite of myself this has become a series in its own right. But I've written fully 4,699 words on the subject so I think that deserves a table of contents!

On That Bonkers Frozen/Tangled Fan Theory. The image set that started the whole series. Just make something for tumblr! I said. It will be quick! I said. I was wrong.

Debunking The Counter-Theory to the Previous Frozen/Tangled Debunking. Yeah, I know. I just couldn't leave well enough alone. But if you happen to be a major costume geek, then this one's for you!

On Correctly Dating Historical Fiction. Just a little auxiliary post on costuming, anachronisms, and how to approach fiction versus reality.

The Eerie Similarities Between Fan Theorists and Anti-Vaxxers. I noticed a few self-serving rationalizations coming up in my comments, and then I had an epiphany.

Even More Eerie Similarities Between Fan Theorists and Anti-Vaxxers. Much like commandments, eerie similarities are best in sets of 10.

About the Author

Satiricalifragilistic grew up during the Disney Renaissance, and The Little Mermaid was the first movie she ever saw in theaters at age 3. Her mother flatly refused to let her leave the theater when Ursula got huge and terrifying, and maybe that explains her troubled psyche.

While she'll admit to being an inveterate nitpicker, she firmly believes in loving a piece of art even while criticizing it, and in the importance of engaging critically with what she loves. She has special contempt for anyone who tries to claim the politics in Disney films don't matter because "they're just movies," because she knows exactly how much the Disney Canon influenced her little gradeschool self—for good and for ill!

She loves art, design, music, dancing, movies from Hollywood's Golden Age, and British comedy...expect a lot of these to turn up in her reviews and mashups!
