Issue Twenty-Five: Letters Page

We love hearing from you, Wanderers – thanks for all your emails, tweets and comments. Please keep them coming, and we’ll continue to share some of them with you! Don’t forget, you can:

Here’s what you’ve been saying since we published Issue Twenty-Four.

Thanks! This helps a lot !! Here is a cookie for your help. (::)

shadowvampiregirl on ‘It’s a Scary World Out There: How to Interact as a Fanfiction Writer

We love cookies! We love them almost as much as we love helping. We’re glad you found our tips useful! -Ed.

A few of these seem kind of obvious. It makes me a little sad to think that there are people who don’t realize that you shouldn’t interrupt someone in the middle of a conversation. :/

Melinda on ‘What If You Run into Someone You’re a Fan of?

It’s unfortunate, but some fans do get a little over-excited and just need a reminder. We’re glad there are also plenty of fans who already know not to do that, though! Thanks for getting in touch. -Ed.

Yes. Definitely. Great books, movies and some TV shows are like a door to another world. And there was a time I preferred these worlds over our own. But some fandoms made me realize as well that I have to live my life in my own world and that it’s just as beautiful and adventurous as the made up ones. You just have to make yourself see it. And if you don’t find it where you live, travel the world. Like all the heroes in all these crazy books.

What we’ve been talking about on Twitter:

  • We asked about your favourite old films – @AwkwardCeleb recommended His Girl Friday while @PatrinaC let us know about People Will Talk. It seems we have some Cary Grant fans among us!
  • @GirlFromMykonos and @Penns_woods misread our mention of a Martini and we all got into a lengthly discussion about whether it’s ever too early for Martin Freeman (conclusion: of course not).
  • @ClassicFilmIdol got in touch to let us know that Myrna Loy and William Powell were the best on-screen couple ever in The Thin Man.
  • @AwkwardCeleb was a little concerned that we might be suggesting a trip outside – we are by no means forcing anyone to leave their house.
  • We asked if you’d be interested in a limited-edition Fandom Wanderers book (see our editor’s note this issue for more details) to celebrate our first anniversary, and @akaCaitlinne and @JaxieFire5er win the award for most enthusiastic responses so far. Do get in touch if you’re interested so we know how limited to make them!

So, if you’re not following @FandomWanderers you’re missing out on some good gossip!
