Spike Fanfic Addict

What A Difference Four Years Makes

The only good thing that came out of the nonsense running through LJ these past few days is that I finally backed up my journal. In doing so, I came across an old post I'd been looking for and thought I'd share it with y'all.

Just for shits and giggles... a list of things I swore I would never do (first posted March 21st, 2004) when I first opened my Live Journal (Which for the record was September 26th, 2003):

1. I will never amass a huge friends list. Who has the time or desire to read the odd ramblings of insane people. This is gonna be for me, only - to have a place to put my private feelings and rants.

2. I will never have people friend me. What would I have to say that anyone would be interested in reading, anyway?

3. I will never read other than Spike/Buffy and Spike/Angel fics. Those are my two OTPs, and I stand by that.

4. I will never get involved in beta'ing other writers' works, nor offer my opinions. Look at the genius out there. What would they ever listen to me for?

5. I won't sign up for communities. Don't need the added nonsense.

6. RPGs? Isn't that what I used to laugh at on the Commodore 64? For geeks, only.

7. The most holy of holies! I will NEVER write a single, solitary word of fanfic. Nope, not me. Have no desire, no talent, and don't want to be stoned. I've seen enough bad!fic out there, and don't need to add to it. And as for drabbles? Hell, what kind of emotion can you get out of 100 silly words, anyway?

Anyone else find their initial ideas of fandom involvement blown to bits by the reality of living with it for all these years? Come on in and talk to me! **lays out virtual refreshments**
