We’ve joked about Pokémon X & Y before, but now it’s finally been released, and he’s back. Game of Thrones is also a very popular thing, which isn’t exactly as new a development, but more or less an ongoing state of affairs, as if the show were in the present progressive tense. Which is still weird to me; my brain can’t grasp that A Song of Ice and Fire is now a mainstream fandom – I can tell this because people make tumblr gifs from it – because for me, it will always be “that book series I was really into back in high school.”
