how far I have come

I'm a little bit boggled at how many names in the springfling sign-ups I recognize. Last year at this time I knew a bare handful of people, mostly from that one friending meme, and now 3/4 of the names on the sign-ups are familiar, even though I haven't directly interacted with a lot of them. And some of them I have and now enjoy very much! Yay fandom. <3

(BTW, it feels like it might be a spammy day. You have been forewarned.)

Yes! There's something about recognising people (even if they're not necessarily people with whom one interacts?) that makes a fandom feel more, um, home-like, I think? It's nice. I'm kind of stalking that post a little, going "ooh!" and getting hopeful whenever there's a particularly quirky sign-up :)

Yes! I like it lots. Buffy fandom was such a happy cozy place, where, for example, I knew all the main Spike/Buffy writers. I'm glad to be getting to the same place in SPN fandom (although there it's more a matter of knowing all the people who write/draw things with women in them :D).
