Here’s what you’ve been saying since we published Issue Seventeen.
What we’ve been talking about on Twitter:
- We asked if you’d ever stayed in a fandom when you’d fallen out of love with the thing it celebrated. @masqueblanc admitted to, though still being part of the ‘Art of Neighbours‘ Facebook group, not having seen an episode in a while. Meanwhile, @Roleves admitted to a little boredom waiting for new episodes of Sherlock, but is confident that the new series will (when it arrives!) fix that.
- @Sherlock_DE thanked us for writing our article on sending fanmail, and for calling you Wanderers special. You are special!
- We weren’t really feeling Monday, you know? So we asked which fictional world you’d like to escape the whole day to. @Sherlock_DE opted for tea with Mrs Hudson at 221B Baker Street, and @SheMsBluebell decided to go too. Meanwhile, @roxie150 wanted to go to Narnia – post-witch, for Christmas – and @pink_alchimie decided to use the Shire as a base of operations for some adventuring! @werepuppy wanted to go to Ankh Morpork, and @masqueblanc decided Pemberley was the perfect getaway location, though we suspect the owner might have been a major consideration in that decision… @RyuNoYoake picked Holmes’ bed – since he was unlikely to be in it.
- We couldn’t just ignore Valentine’s Day, so we asked you which fictional character you’d take on a date. @Lauren_Gallaway picked the Doctor – either taking Ten to a glittery diamond planet or Eleven to a planet of cute animals. @Sherlock_DE picked Sherlock for sulking and pizza, and @NatalyJones couldn’t pick between Ziggy Stardust and Martin Crieff – although both were sure to be adorably awkward. @Masqueblanc wanted to hang out with Fitz Williams from The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, though we fear he may be taken… and @roxie150 picked Marauder-era Sirius Black, though with the caveat that this wouldn’t apply if he turned out to be as arrogant as the fandom think he was at that age.
- We offered Twitter shoutouts to anyone who told us what they liked most about Fandom Wanderers – we’re allowed to ask for ego boosts now and then, shush. @Sherlock_DE complimented our reflective articles, @pink_alchimie likes our purple background and our views on fandom, and @littlelammers thanked us for being one of their first followers. Aww, thanks, Wanderers!
So, if you’re not following @FandomWanderers you’re missing out on some good gossip!
