Anyway, it made me start thinking about Stargate fandom, and that made me start thinking about how long it's been since I've thought about Stargate fandom. I mean, up until I decided to do Nano, I was working on The To-Be Epic Wherein Jonas is a Young Republican Harangued by Kelownan Liberals (c), but I think the last time I was at GateWorld forums was last spring, and my modding of the SJ list these days has boiled down to scan the posts, delete 95% of the fic, smack them who's needs smacking.
And it's weird. I kinda miss pissing people off on a daily basis. I miss the anxiousness of wondering if a particular head case has replied to a post yet, or if she-of-the-thousand-personalities has butted in, or if she-who-isn't-biased,-really will have simply shut down the thread.
There's this odd disconnect as far as fandom beyond SJ goes. I mean, I get the occasional reports from the front line, aka the sewers of OS, about how the toes are bitching about this and that (all which boils down to not enough Jack-lovin' for Danny, like that's any great surprise). And then I realize, this is how fandom was before D&C aired, which subsequently led me to the Stargate newsgroup and the plethora of misogynists, screwballs, asshats and generally freaky types I found there. This is how fandom is for most of the people on SJ.
Yet I'm still looking forward to putting together the next issue of Wild Horses (mainly because that'll mean my novel is finished), which I'm planning on making more fandom-focused, as least as far as editorial content goes. I want to write about the events that have really shaken up fandom. I just can't think of anything especially recent.
Well, I should get to bed. Pretty scary that Yam actually beat me out of the room.
