Statistics don't lie - unfortunately, lovers do...

Sometimes I think I have too many fandoms. How can I be truly, passionately dedicated, if my list of fandoms extends beyond ten? I feel like I should downgrade some of my fandoms to "things I like"...

But then there's the conundrum of what to choose! And the further conundrum of "but I keep finding new things to fangirl!"

I've always thought I was a relatively monogamous kind of person. I mean, I've always liked to think that. Lack of experience makes it all purely academic. But in a hypothetical situation, I've always thought of myself as a relatively monogamous kind of person.

What if my love of the many and varied fandoms is an example that this just isn't true? What if I will be the type of person to spread herself too thin? Yes, yes, I will love passionately - but when you love that many so passionately, surely the passion decreases?

:lol: I don't think your many fandoms feel like they're being cheated on.

Are... are you sure? Because I saw my Buffy figurine looking at my Star Trek calendar, and she didn't look very happy.

Naaah-- you're at the age to sow your wild fannish oats. And with poly-fannish passion you don't have to worry about safe sex!

It's when your cross-universe crushes start seeing each other when you're not there that you have to worry...!

;-P

I can already link about 5 of my fandoms with each other minus the addition of me - I fear this may start happening soon!

Thank you, this made me feel so much better.

You can never have too many fandoms. They're like shoes and bags.....

Considering I couldn't possibly care less about bags or shoes, they're obviously my surrogate.

With boyfriends - you'll be expected to put in a certain amount of time on a regular basis. If it's just casual dating, then seeing 3 or 4 guys once or twice a month each is considered fine (assuming they're all aware that it's casual, and at that point in time, you're not looking to change that, and that you're not dating them, you're just going on dates). I don't think I know anybody in the real world who picks this one... :-/

If it's a serious passion, then seeing the same guy day in, day out, phoning and texting when you can't physically be together, waking up at 4am to check for texts from them and send quick "thinking of you" ones isn't considered excessive. You wouldn't have the time to carry out more than one serious passionate love affair concurrently!

Miri, did you miss the part where this was complete satire, or are you just imagining it was serious?

I hadn't been awake for very long when I wrote that... My little brain is still calling for coffee...


That might have been why I went to kitchen, looked around blankly, then came back here... Coffee...

That's okay, pet... ;)

What if you had to pick one. Like, you are in a situation where you are hanging on to all of your fantoms off the edge of a cliff and you only have the strength to pull one up. Which one do you save?

.. well, at the moment that would probably be due South... but it's going to change at some point.

You...you...you fandom whore! Well, welcome to the club. Would you like me to pimp anymore fandoms, love?
7th-Feb-2006 10:10 pm (UTC)
No, No... I'm doing fine, thanks :D

Is it me or have you been missing a few days?

Oh, I have been vacationing from LJ Land.

Nah, I'm inclined to say the more obsessive interests, the better. Of course, you can't devote as much time to each one, but it makes you a more well-rounded person, no?

Yeah, it might be better for your sanity to like many things as opposed to get into stalkerish tendencies for the one.
