Would I go quietly...?

There was a time (about 3 or 4 years ago) that hearing a fan say they are no longer enjoying The Show made me feels all sorts of sad. I even used to try and convince people that it would be ok and DON'T GOOOOOO! "but just wait...it will get better for you..." (/o\)

fannish ponderingsCollapse )

No idea why I spewed that all over my journal. I just felt like getting that off my chest.

(I love the new "collapse". Thanks LJ.)

One thing that's always interesting to see develop is what I'd call Fandom 2.0 -- the fandom that continues or begins once the canon ends. I find that's usually pretty revealing about what holds the fandom together in the end and it tends to start a whole different cycle of conversations.

Ah...yes. That would be interesting. I suspect the SPN fandom will continue well after the show ends. I always wonder about the people who discover the show once it's all over. I'm sure they would want to connect with others.

I know what you mean. I miss the days when everything was so fresh and new and sparkling. Now the bubbly feeling is missing. One by one, all the big name fans drop out and you are left wondering if you should do the same. I go to LJs and see they have moved on to other fandoms or stopped posting altogether. I go to sites and everything's dead.

Glad there are still other dedicated Sam fans out there. For me, I am still watching but the heart-pounding days are over. It doesn't help that I think the story is getting stale and the two main attractions of the show for me-Sam and the brotherly bond- have been on the backburner for a long time.

Hi. Yeah, I guess that early feeling is gone, which isn't surprising I suppose. I still feel invigorated though. I dread the day it feels stale to me. It might happen I suppose, but with the start of the new season I am still ridiculously excited. So far I'm loving what they are doing. I'm a Sam!girl and I am very curious to see what happens with his story. And, for me, the brotherly bond is as strong as ever. The epic love story continues....;D

If the rest of the season is as strong as 8x01, there won't be any need to go at all, quietly or otherwise!

(Are you reading spoilers? I just saw your post on heartofspn and think I'll wait until tomorrow to read it!)

I REALLY hope it's all as good (or close) to that one.

And I made a mistake in that cut. It's 8.01 discussion (not 8.02). I couldn't decide if I need to cut for 8.01 images? Maybe I don't need to.
