Life on Mars (Sam & Gene hold hands)
I've been reading about various different fandoms lately and the troubles they harbour and it got me thinking a lot about Life on Mars fandom. In doing so, I constructed this list: things I am thankful for regarding Life on Mars fandom.

1. No anonmeme. And by this I don't mean kinkmeme (which we do have, and which we should probably maintain as much as possible), but a place to which people go to bitch about others. We've never had one, as far as I am aware. This is so pleasing.

2. Very few shipwars. In my recollection, we've almost never had any kind of "my ship is better than your ship" nonsense.

3. A lack of wank in general, actually. I'm pretty sure I'm the wankiest member of LoM fandom, and considering about 96% of my wank is directed towards the show's creators? They're excellent wank statistics.

4. A delightfully high ratio of good to bad fic, vids and artwork. The talent we have in our little fandom that could is astounding.

5. Ambience and atmosphere. So many people are friendly, non-judgemental, welcoming, and, all in all, rad.

So, we may sometimes be very quiet, and sure, I'd love more of everything, but for the most part? Thank you, non-wanky fandom of my heart. I mean it.

I know it's not only down to the size of the fandom that we're so lacking in wank. It's also the people who are involved in the fandom. The fabulous people. ♥

The anonmeme thing makes no sense to me, none at all. It's so very petty, ugh. And cruel, too. I just --- WHY? I understand the occasional need to have a private bitch session (and would mostly only have it with myself), but to put it in a place where the person can find it? And the trivial shit people pick apart too. MASSIVE UGH.

... I'm still shining on like a crazy diamond in LoM fandom. I always did and I always shall.
