Ummm. The Buffy and Angel season finales are on tonight. And I’ve just been thinking, that considering those shows are just about the only thing I watch on TV (the only ones I watch regularly week-in-week-out at least), and that the majority of my websites are based around them, I don’t talk about ’em that much here. Apart from the sites, I spose. I don’t talk about the eps I’ve seen, or anything like that. Maybe it doesn’t seem strange to anyone who’s not me, but thing is, I probably wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Buffy. And I mean, here, writing this journal, living where I live, doing the job I do. No, scratch the probably – I definitely wouldn’t be. If I hadn’t got into Buffy, I don’t know that I’d have had the creative impetuous to do more than the basic simple website that Dark Angel’s Tower was, I don’t think I’d’ve started writing again, I never would have had the fun that is writing fanfic. I never would have moved up to Yorkshire, because I wouldn’t know my Barry, or Megs, or any of the fantastic people I’ve met through this whole Buffy / internet thing. In fact, if I think about it, I wouldn’t have known Russ at work…. in which case they most likely wouldn’t have both joined the mailing list where they met, and instead of being married and having a baby, they’d still be on opposite sides of the planet. And my god, that paragraph got long and involved. LOL., and I never would have spoken more than two words to
I added a few more links today, to GB, and also to Sam, Lar, and Kassie, who I know of (though don’t know well (unfortunately, cos they’re cool people)) through the Buffy fandom. And I spose reading their blogs also partially sparked off the above train of thought. Though I think I’ve been way luckier than them. Probably it’s because my sites and fics are so-so, rather than remarkably good or bad, but I’ve never had any of the hassle that they seem to get. But it’s extremely shitty that the hassle happens. Live and let live, damnit!
Just took this IQ test. Scored 147. Go me, I’m a genius. *snort*
