This Week in Fandom, Volume 148

Hello and welcome to This Week in Fandom, the OTW’s roundup of things that are happening. Before we get started, did you know that this week marks one year since the Game of Thrones season finale? Yes, it has been an extremely long year. In any case, fans marked the occasion on Twitter with exactly the enthusiasm that those of us who do remember those dusty days of 2019 might expect.
