Fandom has eaten my brain

Oh, and on another note—

I've read the first three of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey & Maturin novels and enjoyed them, but don't remember them very well. Since I'd seen good reviews of the audiobooks, the Patrick Tull narrations in particular [*], I thought I'd try starting the series over on audiobook.

I don't find Aubrey/Maturin the least bit interesting or plausible (I mean, could you get any straighter than Jack?). And yet, I found myself listening to Master and Commander tonight and marvelling at what an astoundingly slashy opening that is.

Fandom has truly eaten my brain.

[*] Tull has a nice chewy voice for the narrative sections, but I'm having trouble differentiating between characters in dialogue. I may need to investigate the other set of unabridged recordings.
