Happy Halloween! Your intrepid hosts (Alison, Tonya, Megan and Lia) decided to brave the wilds of fan fic and see what lurks in the woods. We read fic with shapeshifters, a walk through the omegaverse,  alternate universes and grim reapers. No shaming, just exploring where fantasy and fandom can lead...with a side detour to get thinky over implications of AI. Please be warned there is talk of shipping and puppy play...and ...

In the second installment of her NEW AND LEAST FAVORITE SERIES ON THE PLANET, today Afternoona Army host, Lia, asks why did RM use his giant Instagram platform to showcase a song from a convicted abuser of women. Is she advocating censorship?  No. Does she think RM personally endorses abuse. Nothing even close. Is she an anti? NO! GOD! NO!

It's never fun to hold a favorite idol accountable. For us, BTS is generally a place of safety and deep joy. We love ALL the members AND we love this amazing and diverse ARMY fandom. But today, V made some choices in his Weverse live that left us with questions, and it's fair to ask them. Join host Lia and friend-of-the-pod Becky (who is also a V bias) as we discuss what we observed in the live, why we found it disappointi...
