James - my name
Day 15

In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers. Share your love and squee as loud as you want to.

Thank you Spike and James, and BtVS,

You have given me so much. For the first time ever I wanted to write something ... having been told never to attempt anything (by an English teacher). But, that final episode needed to be changed, and so my fan-fic writing was started. And in looking through the internet I began to realise hat others felt the same. And, so I arrived at LJ.

James your acting just jumped out of the TV at me. The first episode I saw was "Lies" from season 7, and in 40 mins you were 2 separate people. For the first time I saw what an actor could do. In gradually increasing my contact within LJ and fandom, I discovered that you came to England .... and found that I was missing out on something. So in 2007 I decided I would go to London to one of your gigs .... my first ever concert. Through contact with others I found somewhere to sleep, so decided I would travel up to Milton Keynes to meet you in person. Thank you for that inspiration - I have been to other gigs of your, and have met some amazing people, some of whom are now good friends.

I somehow, via LJ, got myself challenged to attempt art-work ... not bad for someone who is colourblind.

So, I have done more things than I would ever have imagined, met people who are special to me ... all after watching 1/2 an episode of BtVS.  In seeing that episode I ended up buying the DVDs, and overall have watched TV series and films that otherwise would not have been something that I would have even thought of,

Fandom is a really good way to meet people both online and in person isn't it!

Buffy, Spike specifically, is what also brought me to the internet looking for ~more, too! I'm glad you found a community and had some lovely experiences. ♥

Sorry for the delay in answering.

The great thing about Buffy and Spike (and all the stories, etc) is that they are strong characters that can unite, and cause much fun.

Oh well, I am not looking forward to a female Dr ... for lots of reasons. However I had this debate with one of my nephews, and he agreed with me when I reminded him of the whole River Song (and child) story-line!!! So ... have I now confused you further!!
