I really, really do. Heroes. POTC. I got an urge to read Sparrington aka. Jack Sparrow/Norrington about a month ago and started searching on the web for some old stories and whatever was new since the last time I looked, which was years ago. 2009, maybe. I knew the fandom had gone pretty downhill by then, but damn. It makes sense, though. Most fandoms don't last forever. It's amazing there's still activity at all and quite a few, too, just not the kind I remember. This wouldn't bug me so much if it weren't POTC. I would like to say that it's because of the age of sail aspect, because every time I see a ship with sails I am drawn to it (literally; I'll be in the middle of a conversation, I see a painting of a sailing ship across the room and I forget everything and go straight to it), but I never got into Aubrey/Maturin and Hornblower fandoms like I got into this one. The characters in POTC moved me and inspired me much like the ones in Heroes. I just had to keep on watching and reading and writing and commenting (though I wound up writing and commenting much more for Heroes). I had some hope that there was a new movie coming out, though I'm not sure what I was hoping for, since I wasn't happy with the idea of a new movie to begin with and both my OTPs (Pintel/Ragetti) was the other one) being out of the picture (because of course they wouldn't bring back Norrington even though they keep resurrecting everyone else, because he's my favorite character and my favorite characters always stay dead dead dead, which is the only reason I'm kinda glad they never brought back Claude in Heroes, because then they would have definitely killed him because they always do that to my characters and CE has such a penchant for dying on set).
I'm a little afraid of looking at the Heroes comms. Is there still something going on?
I haven't even thought about fandoms in a while. Not only have I had to time for one, but I haven't seen anything that I've felt fannish about. It's weird. What's a fangirl without a fandom?
On a different note: Hello! I live, though my life is quite boring lately. I decided, against my better judgement (the muse is a cruel mistress), to write a novel set in the Henrician Era, so I've been mired by research, research, and more research. Right now, I should be typing up notes, but I don't feel like it. I've missed LJ. My life these past months has been all library books and photocopies.
I'm back in Puerto Rico for now. Not much going on here, either.
