Issue Forty-Three: Letters Page

We love hearing what you all think, so please feel free to get in touch!

Don’t forget, you can:

Here’s what you’ve been saying since we published Issue Forty-Two.

Written down like that, it seems like a really small step to make, but in reality, it can actually be kind of a big thing.

I completely agree. :-) I used to be a lurker for years before I took all my courage and opened an account at dreamwidth. And then it took me even longer to post anything.
Lurking so much beforehand was actually very helpful in retrospect because there I learned the conventions of fandom, the jargon, what a posting header usually looked like, what comments were appreciated most by posters etc etc. I am very very glad I took that step in the end. Participating is much more fun than lurking! :-)

mekare on ‘How to Be in Fandom

We’re glad you did, too! Apologies for the late reply, we thought we’d pressed ‘send’ but apparently hadn’t. -Ed.

One of our readers, sameoldsorceress, put together a handy Tumblr post with a few links to articles that might help fans unnerve their favourite people less. Thanks for that!

What we’ve been talking about on Twitter:

  • We asked if you had any fandoms you’d hung onto since childhood – @samurang87 wisely pointed out that if you gather an international group of 20-somethings, there will be Disney songs. This is an excellent point.
  • We were also trying to avoid the world’s preoccupation with kisses on Valentine’s Day – we were working, after all – and asked you which fictional character you’d hug. @roxie150 volunteered to hug either one of the Winchester brothers from Supernatural, as they need one!

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