Fandom of a few...

I am mentally vidding Florence and the Machine's "No Light, No Light" to scenes of Eternal Law.

I'm starting to feel a bit sad the show is unlikely to ever acquire a huge fandom (let alone a second series.)

You have my sympathies. In the last year or so the few new shows I've really loved have been cancelled and/or have failed to develop much of a fandom.

Oh? What shows would that be for you?

Most recently in TV terms that would be Human Target (no, not a great show but great characters), Castle (I mean the Ryan/Esposito bit although the Castle fandom is pretty low activity anyway) and Person of Interest which I think is a really decent show. A bit older one would be Apparitions.

And then of course I could get even more grumpy by getting in to films like I really hoped the most recent Musketeers film might enliven that fandom again.

I'm beginning to suspect that my interest might be a kiss of death for fandoms.

I know someone else who loves Person of Interest! Are you well acquainted with severa?

I am also surprised the recent Musketeers doesn't seem to have enlivened the fandom again?

The thing is, to be honest, apart from my time in Harry Potter fandom, I have always been a fan of the weird little obscure show that attracted 15 other people at a time at most. I only ever skate around the larger fandoms, and someone referred to Merlin fandom as small the other day. MERLIN!

Like you, I think it's my doom to be attracted to the poor little kid wearing all black and writing Byronic poetry in the corner.

I was really surprised that the Musketeers film didn't have more impact as it was very popular and quite slashy, with very attractive actors.

I'm making new acquaintances in the POI fandom thanks to joining the two LJ coms shortly before Christmas. One of them has finally edged up to 200 members but there are only about eight writers and most of them are Gen. So far I'd still have to say it's the largest fandom of any new fandom I've been interested in. *G*

I've always been part of the smaller fandoms. Life on Mars was my largest so that should tell you something. Pros is large in its archive of stories (30+ active years will do that for you) although very small as it exists now. Even the Holmes fandom was small back when I was actually active in it.

We, plus those two over at the DW comm, can totally just make the fandom ourselves, right?

4 is enough for a fandom, yes?

TELL ME IT IS, LOZ, I NEEDS IT

IT IS, JEN! WE CAN DO IT. WE CAN DO ANYTHING.

My only problem is that a) the time zone shift is a pain in the arse. b) I am back at work pretty soon, which means less time for all of this fannishness.

HARUMBLE!

I hate the time zone too! (Because I am always so put out that we can't just ramble at each other for hours on end.) And, eurgh, work is so bad for fannish stuff. Mine was good when I had regular time on the door and thus plenty of time to scribble. Now it is bad because of responsibility and me apparently being "too expensive" to sit on the door "dong nothing". Pffffffffft.

Um. What were we talking about?
14th-Jan-2012 12:17 am (UTC)
I am put out by us not being able to ramble at each other and make the same comment at the same time also.

Work, bleugh. If I didn't love teaching so much, I'd be very annoyed.
14th-Jan-2012 12:20 am (UTC)
Excellent. I am glad we are in agreement re: the time. We should get on developing an evil plot to move the time zones closer together. *nods*

Sadly I don't have much love for my job. But it's money and it's within walking distance so. Yeah.
