The thing I love about the HP
fandom is the quantity of quality there is out there. I might not read an H/D fic for months, but when I want to I can spend hours at a time reading a novel length fic. I kinda miss being as active in this fandom as I used to be, but at the same time, I do not miss the miserable waits for new chapters. Then again, I suffer in exactly the same way in all my other fandoms... but nevermind.
The thing is, I just can't keep up. I had little computer time this summer, which dampened my SPN
obsession. And since I have not seen the new eps, I have been sticking solely to the WIPs I had followed before S3. Just in case. It's crazy, but at least I can venture onto my flist with the help of filters. And then there is Heroes, which I do not profess to be an expert in or a major fangirl of. But at the same time, I love my Nathan/Peter fics. And how can I not mention QAF
? The fandom I used to exist off of for almost a year... I am completely in the dark. I miss Brian and Justin in the way you miss that ex that left you at the alter. But I never know how to get back into the swing of the QAF fandom.
And then there are the deadish fandoms out there. My Spike/Angel
love is still going strong, but the fandom lacks the structure that HP and SPN have. ie. There is no "here are all the super long, amazingly complex fics" sort of thing. So either I read through crap or I just give up. What about Firefly
? My Mal/River love is over the moon, but the fandom in kinda tiny. Not to mention the fact that there aren't too many browncoats out there who share my particular love. (If you feel the overwhelming urge to convert, check out tesla321
's Knot for our Heart
- which I love like woah.)
There is also my crazy obsession with the West Wing
. How can such an amazing show have such a tiny fandom? If I could get everyone in the SPN fandom to just write three words of Sam/Josh fic, the amount out there would triple overnight. And speaking about tin fandom, who else is wondering where all the Grey's
fans are? Seriously. And what about Lost
? Why am I not overwhelmed with hot Jacket fics everytime I check my flist? I mean, apart from the fact it's het. Which.... admittedly, might have a lot to do with it.
Okay, this started out as a happy post and ended up a not-so-happy post. Give me a fandom with too many fics and I'm pissed, too few and I'm pissed. I guess I can't be pleased.
Oh yeah, I hope everyone out there is watching Blood Ties
. That awesome Canadian Vampire Detective show? With the amazingly stunning Henry Fitzroy? Yeah, that one.
