You know, I was all set to write up a proposal for the APA's HBO Rome Panel in San Diego in 2007 (the APA is the big society for Classics in North America) about Rome on the internet and fanfiction and slashy goodness. And you know what? There isn't actually that much out there. And remarkably little fanfiction for Vorenus and Pullo who you would have thought would have been the OTP to end all OTPs. It is very strange and has weakened my faith in the internet's ability to provide me with instant crazy and entertainment in one go. However, it is probably just as well as giving a paper on men doing it in fanfiction is not exactly a winning move in the sober field of Classics. Also, I would no doubt giggle a lot even as I made talked about modern mythmaking.

Also, go Sweden! You may not have won the gold but good on you for making women's hockey a more interesting place.

ETA: but not a complete proposal writing loss day because I did get one written on mad Irish poet's 18th century parody of the Aeneid. Excellent, obscure stuff that. Please let it be accepted so I can justify a trip to Cumae to my employer.
