Fandom is focus. Fandom is obsession. Fandom is insatiable consumption. Fandom is sitting for hours in front of a TV screen a movie screen a computer screen with a comic book a novel on your lap. Fandom is eyestrain and carpal tunnel syndrome and not enough exercise and staying up way, way past your bedtime.

Fandom is people you don’t tell your mother you’re meeting. Fandom is people in the closet, people out and proud, people in costumes, people in T-shirts with slogans only fifty others would understand. Fandom is a loud dinner conversation scaring the waiter and every table nearby.

Fandom is you in Germany and me in the US and him in Australia and her in Japan. Fandom is a sofabed in New York, a roadtrip to Oxnard, a friend behind a face in London. Fandom talks past timezones and accents and backgrounds. Fandom is conversation. Communication. Contact.

Fandom is drama. Fandom is melodrama. Fandom is high school. Fandom is Snacky’s law and Godwin’s law and Murphy’s law. Fandom is smarter than you. Fandom is stupider than you. Fandom is five arguments over and over and over again. Fandom is the first time you’ve ever had them.

Fandom is female. Fandom is male. Fandom lets female play at being male. Fandom bends gender, straight, gay, prude, promiscuous. Fandom is fantasy. Fandom doesn’t care about norms or taboos or boundaries. Fandom cares too much about norms and taboos and boundaries. Fandom is not real life. Fandom is closer than real life. Fandom knows what you’re really like in the bedroom. Fandom is how you would never, could never be in the bedroom.

Fandom is shipping, never shipping, het, slash, gen, none of the above, more than the above. Fandom is love for characters you didn’t create. Fandom is recreating the characters you didn’t create. Fandom is appropriation, subversion, dissention. Fandom is adoration, extrapolation, imitation. Fandom is dissection, criticism, interpretation. Fandom is changing, experimenting, attempting.

Fandom is creating. Fandom is drawing, painting, vidding: nine seasons in four minutes of love. Fandom is words, language, authoring. Fandom is essays, stories, betas, parodies, filks, zines, usenet posts, blog posts, message board posts, emails, chats, petitions, wank, concrit, feedback, recs. Fandom is writing for the first time since you were twelve. Fandom is finally calling yourself a writer.

Fandom is signal and response. Fandom is a stranger moving you to tears, anger, laughter. Fandom is you moving a stranger to speak.

Fandom is distraction. Fandom is endangering your job, your grades, your relationships, your bank account. Fandom gets no work done. Fandom is too much work. Fandom was/is just a phase. Fandom could never be just a phase. Fandom is where you found a friend, a sister, a kindred spirit. Fandom is where you found a talent, a love, a reason.

Fandom is where you found yourself.

thedoctorandsherlock: The Sherlock Fandom.

thedoctorandsherlock:

Ah, how to describe the fandom that is the Sherlock fandom…
They are amazing artists, fic writers, bards, enthusiasts…

But most of they, they are unique.
No other fandom has ever gone as far as the Sherlock fandom has.
No other fandom has ever brought so much out of six episodes.
No other fandom…

I fell in love (if it wasn’t already the fact) with:

lethalya
You’re the good one for find the restaurant, you’re so cool ;)
A fabulous and funny chimist, don’t change! (and be careful to your sexy boss!)
Exhuberant, redgirl, expressive and from Amiens :D
Bluehairedgirl, who draws fantastic fanarts!
corps-exquis
THE ONE <3
klexquisiteThe”don’t-want-to-have-children-and-get-over-it” and sexy girl!

purple-onion-of-sexTHE ONE <3 (yes, there are two ONE, but i can’t choose between them, i love both!)


~ and so more than i can’t put everybody!
(note to myself: I NEED to get beter in english ><)

<3

( in my head right now :

“OMGSHESAIDIMCOOLICANTIJUSTCANTAAAAAAAA

ILOVETHEMALLSOMUCHHOWCOULDILIVEBEFOREI

MEETTHEMAWWWWWFRENCHLOCKIAAAAAAAANS”

…approxiamtely )

Je ne vois qu’une solution… “mariage à 50”, ça vous parle ???

OH OUI MARIAGE A 50 !


Fandom, Would you marry me? 

When and where :D ? (i’ll talk to my boyfriend, but i think it’s okay :D and more, next year i will live in Paris, so the ceremeny will be more easy ;) )
And of course you’re cool ;)

… I propose a non-religious ceremony, somewhere in the country… (Like Bag End in the Shire!)

In the UK, of course.

We would invite Mofftroll and Godtiss, and all the cast/crew. And maybe our personnal friends/familly (not sure of this, through…).

In early spring, so we would have enough Sun, but the weather would not be too hot.

50 being quite a number, the celebration should last at least a full week.

And of course :

  • fireworks and bonfires
  • talented musicians & bands
  • awesome food (with vegetarian and vegan options!)
  • fancy-dress and masked balls
  • outdoor movies and series, marathons… (Sherlock, Doctor Who, Firefly, Supernatural, The IT Crowd, Caprica, Being Human, Misfits, Flying Circus, etc)

And the "just married" ride would be in the Tardis (cars are so mainstream)

^^

Fandom : I’m totally in lesbians with you.

Would you marry me?

<3

Fandom, We'll stay strong!

fanartist-glaucopis:

A song documenting the journey of the Fandom…We can do this!

Fandom, We’ll stay strong (to the tune of “How to save a life” by The Fray)

Ep one, we fell in love with how they’d talk

They’d walk and we just sat in shock

We shared a bond with cast and crew

We heard they’d make a season two

But then things started feeling wrong

The season gap just seemed so long

We felt the angst of the great game

We’re all bonkers but who’s to blame?

Fandom, we’ll stay strong! We lost our minds
somewhere along the hiatus!
Pray to godtiss and Moff we’ll last the night

And hope that Sherlock’s still alive

Well, we’re not perfect we’ve got flaws

Introduce Adler and we’ll bring the Shipping wars!
But we’ve survived and loved for years
we’ve shared the joy and shed the tears

but then we hear that famed theme song!
And Moffat was following all along!
Pray to god they didn’t read the porn!
PRAY TO GOD THEY DIDN’T READ THE PORN!  
<!—[endif]—>

Season 2 starts, we’re standing proud

Admiring Adler and fearing the hound

but we’ve know through highs and lows

that Reichenbach is getting close!

We can do one of two things
We could lose our minds and ruin everything

Or we salute and smile with all our might

It’s been an honour playing with you tonight!

I love this fandom so much. I’m proud of you guys.

For the love of god somebody Tweet this to Mofftiss right now.
