So I'm finding that I'm missing being a part of the Harry Potter fandom. And I wish the stories still gripped me and that the characters still interested me, but they just don't. And I wish they did because then I'd have more to read.

And I love the fandoms that i am a part of; Star Trek, Phineas and Ferb, South Park. I'm trying to get into Sherlock Holmes, but that requires, you know, book spending and all that. I'm almost broke so that's out of the question. And a lot of things I like are, for me, just not fandomable. The mentalist: I love it as a show and I love the characters, and while I am a member of the community, anything written there just doesn't hold the same thrill as watching the show. Avatar: Brilliant film, but I can't see myself even joining a comm.

And then the fandoms I am a part of are not near as frequent, or as plentiful, as HP. With HP there were countless sites simply dedicated to HP fic. Large portions of it were stuff that I read. Star Trek fandom? I like a good Kirk/Spock or Kirk/Bones any day, but my otp is Spock/Bones and there is not nearly enough of that. My fave in SP is Creek or KyMan or K2. But most of those are not really all that great, and some of the ones that are fantastic usually involve Style or Candy or some other form of 'Not right' in my eyes. Phineas and Ferb? Ok, I like the three prominent slashdoms: PF, PxD and Buford/Baljeet. But there are very few people my age interested enough in the fandom to write fics about it! There are several of us, but not nearly enough, IMHO.

I think I would have stuck with HP and added to my repertoire if HP7 hadn't sucked and blown. If she hadn't killed off my two favorite characters and hadn't made cannon seven so boring and OFF TOPIC I would have stayed with it. But I miss the vastness. All three of my major fandoms have about a sixteenth in total of what Drarry and Snarry there is.

I dunno. Just rambling. (Rabble rabble rabble!) Pay no attention. Just needed to get my thoughts down, you know?

"But there are very few people my age interested enough in the fandom to write fics about it!"

Maybe because the show was created with the intent of kids watching it and not creepy old people(I use old in comparison to the age group, you're not old) thinking about the show sexually. Just saying...

I don't get why you can't just read a book and be satisfied with it. Why do people have to go and re-write them and normally add bizarre sexual twists?

Also, Star Trek created the sexual twists. SO don't blame me about that.

Also also: You need to watch, like, a couple episodes in P&F. It had so many adult jokes and innuendo that would just fly over a kid's head but to the parents watching with their kid or the big sister watching with her little sister, it's FREAKING HILARIOUS!!!
