No, I am not suddenly into slash or other squicky things.
But my fandom experience is always evolving. I started out with Star Trek
and Babylon 5
, both sci-fi ensemble shows. Then about the time I left for university, I noticed that it had switched to buddy shows: Quantum Leap
, The Invisible Man
, The Sentinel
, The X-Files
. And it has stayed there for the most part, with a few forays back into ensemble sci-fi (Stargate SG-1
), ensemble fantasy (Buffy
), and ensemble procedurals (CSI
I've just noted a new trend, as of this summer, though I think it's been developing over a period of time. Possibly the last two years, since my move to LA. Why do I think this? Because that's when I left my immediate family in another state.
And my new fandom interest is in the area of family relationships/dynamics.( Collapse )( Collapse )
So yeah, I guess I miss my family. But at least I have some good shows to remind me of what I'm missing, and why I miss it.
