Hello. Home from three weeks in Britain (mostly Wales). Brought 13 new books. Got nearly no reading done while there, though - somehow I was always too busy planning the next bit of my trip or looking out bus and train windows at the rainy but lovely scenery to read. Oh well. Lots of commuting time coming up to read all those books... and having such a nice stack of books waiting to be read *almost* makes me look forward to going back to work.

Almost.

Sorry I've been absent forever and ever. I kept losing my password and eventually couldn't be bothered to keep making new ones. Current one's very intuitive, though, so maybe this time I'll remember? Fingers crossed.

Anyone still here? I miss fandom a lot. I know most of it is on tumblr now but... blech.

*waving* I'm here, but not in fandom so much -- too busy to write, or for long discussions. Always find time to read fic, though!

I agree. I wonder if our fandom life is limited as a default... as life keeps piling on, eventually we can't juggle it all anymore, and those who carry the flame are those who don't have such unwieldy piles to manage (yet).

OTOH, maybe I just don't "grok" the new shows. I see lots of squeeful posts about [a] Teen Wolf, [b] Marvel Universe, [c] others I forget. But I have absolutely no interest in those shows, and my faves -- HL, TS, SGA, DS -- are no longer current. I had hopes for H50, but TPTB have jerked the fans around so much that we have to like the show in spite of itself.

Regardless, like you, I don't like it; I miss being thrilled by being a part of a larger fandom.

*waves hey* still here, still mostly lurking...trying to manage Tumblr-waters and missing fandom love - though tentatively fancrushing on MCU/Marvel now, and sadly that seems to be mostly on Tumblr - which is really terrible for any meta :( Well, times keep changing...

I'm still here!

I try to avoid fandom on tumblr, even though that's where all the action is, because some of the people in some of the fandoms I'm in are really vile for no other reason than, apparently, internet access.

Take it you had a good time on holiday, though? Well, how could you not in Wales? ;)
