So I had a brief moment of defensive embarrassment over falling in love with the MCU after seeing Winter Soldier, despite being lukewarm at best before (and actively hating Loki's fandom). I'm not a huge comics reader and most of what I do read is DC, DWM compilations and indie stuff, so I had a moment of feeling like the worst kind of fair-weather fangirl, only in it for the movies with hot actors, not willing to read the real backstories or get invested in characters not in the films.

...And then looked at myself and realized that was stupid. If I can be perfectly fine with OTHER people only enjoying the movies, then why shouldn't I be allowed to do the same?

Besides, I had my day as a smug fandom hipster when Night of the Doctor came out.
