Merlin! Doesn't Anthony Stewart Head act in it? Giles from Buffy! Nostalgia! See, that in no way makes you a loser - I might've recently downloaded a few seasons' worth of Buffy and have been watching, er... three/four episodes per day? But I'm reconnecting with my youth. I suppose Buffy was my second fandom. Sort of. (I even remember reading hot Buffy/Faith lesbian fun times! Back when I was... uh... too young.)

ANYWAY! I've not watched Merlin, though I do know the show. And now I'm worried to because I'm afraid I'll get addicted... What's my point? Yes! That people change. I mean, I don't want to be writing PATD slash five years from now. We all grow up, change, move onto new things. It's to be expected, and it's good that your brain is looking out for new, intriguing things! Then there's the whole factor of you possibly going away, figuratively speaking, and I'm going to sound lame, but back when I was a baby in this fandom, and you start recognising people, big players some might say, and you slowly figure out who is who, I remember you so clearly from over two years ago when I was still lurking, and then, yes, I would be sad should you not be around anymore because it's this structure of people in my head, okay? (Run on sentence.) But I think that would still be okay, apart from the wistful sighing thing, because like you said you wouldn't be forgetting about the crazy PATD fangirls either! I, for one, am still much too fascinated by Jon Walker's neck to be going anywhere. And I suppose you could still acknowledge the ravishing hotness of our boys even if you were a Merlinster (is a word), so there would still be that link between you and the rest of us. Though we'd miss you. I'd miss you saying really smart stuff and being insightful about all things related to the fandom, but I won't be whiny! Because people change. And change is good! And, well, you might find out you're poly-fandom too! It's all about self-discovery. Yup. Fan fic is all about really deep stuff. And not just... getting kicks out off certain pairings. Ahem.

Uh. I didn't mean to write an essay either.
