...way out on the corner of fucked up and evil...
I just finished the most recent book, the Creeping Shadow. I wish there was a concentrated Lockwood and Co fandom presence on LJ, but if there is I can't find it. It's on Tumblr but I find Tumblr a fucking nightmare to interact on.
Also... you know, I really don't like Lockwood very much. I love that that awful girl-jealousy bullshit between Lucy and Holly got dropped, the Skull and George are hilarious and Kipps is a really interesting character, more so with every book. But Lockwood... idk, he leaves me cold. I think when he was a bit silly in the first book, I was fine with him, but he's just so... ugh, you know, he's like the author's crafty wank fantasy and I don't understand why all the characters in-book think he's so great.
Anyway, given that most of the fandom I see on Tumblr is really Lockwood/Lucy centric, maybe I wouldn't interact all that much anyway, but if I could actually navigate and use the fucking thing, there might be a subset of people who'd get all excited over the books and the other characters without being all OMG LUCY AND LOCKWOOD KISSING YAY and I'm like, ugh, she could do better, he's a twat.
