Paul Walker, star of The Fast and The Furious movies, died in a car crash on November 30th. He was only 40 years old and was, as the cliché goes, in the prime of his life. In a weird melding of the two things I write about, there were fans from the nerd world and the automotive world jointly expressing their sadness. It overwhelmed my social media feeds and got me thinking about how much the real people in our fandoms become "ours."

The holidays are a joyous time, but they can be difficult, especially when you're a geek. It's not that it's harder for geeks to cook a turkey or trim a tree, but that it's harder for us to survive the small talk at all those parties. We want to talk about the Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode, but everyone else wants to talk about football.

The Handbag of Holding is the perfect way to carry all your geeky stuff. It is, much like the TARDIS, bigger on the inside than it looks, but is stealthier than a big blue box. Oh, and I've got one that I'm giving away to one lucky Total Fan Girl reader!

This weekend's movie adventure was Thor: The Dark World. I enjoyed the first film, but didn't absolutely love it so my expectations were not very high. It turned out that my worries were completely unnecessary.
