Whitney Watches: Teen Wolf 5.11 “The Last Chimera”

Well guys, we’re back in Beacon Hills – for better or for worse. This episode picked up exactly where things left off- with the fall out from the night of the Supermoon. As I mentioned in the recap I posted earlier this week, a lot happened in the finale. Theo’s evilness was revealed, Scott died

George Lucas still can’t let Star Wars go. (Creator woes)

When it was announced that Disney was buying Lucasfilm (and the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises), I wondered how Lucas was going to handle it.

Update: Teen.Com’s Fanfic Shaming Post – Does Editing Fix it?

Update: Teen has taken down the blog post entirely (I’m glad I have these screencaps), my thoughts at the end of this post Yesterday’s post was spread by a fair number of people on the internet, and that makes me happy.
