And This Is Why Superman and All Of You Mean So Much To Me.  
swingandswirl, you own me now more than ever for finding this. hesychasm, you are a poet and a goddess among people for writing this piece.

It's here.

This is what fandom is to me, as well. You are all my family, a family I wish so badly I had had in my younger years, when I had no one to talk to about the Superman fandom and what it means to me. Every time I can talk to someone who likes the mythos is like a present I was never give in the past and I'm so grateful to know you all.

I'm also grateful for the lurkers out there, those that don't speak but still have such an interest. Once upon a time, I was you. Today's lurkers are usually tomorrow's writers, tomorrow's artists. YOU are what continues to fuel us, to make us strive to be better, in hopes of contact.

This is a time in my life that I will never have again and always, always remember.

ETA: Anissa's not going to SC this weekend. Plans changed at the last minute, which is why I was able to make this entry.

Wow, that was amazing and so, so true. Especially the last line.

And lol at this line:

Fandom is endangering your job, your grades, your relationships, your bank account.

Although I kinda wish that one wasn't as true as it sometimes is :P

And I totally feel you. I wish I could spend half the money I want on fandom. Seriously. *LOL*

Girlfriend, you just described my childhood. I was 11 when SI opened in Australia, my parents had just seperated and to a young mind my world was falling apart.

My mum through sheer desperation with 4 kids under the age of 4 on rainy day in Sydney took us to the movies. We had the choice of Jaws or SI. And that as they say is that. I have been in love with the Superman movies, Christopher and Margot ever since.

They've pulled me through some very rough times in my life. And like you, I never had anyone to talk to about my love of all things Superman. When I did talk to my friends they laughed at me.

An I love all you guys as well for keeping this love of mine alive and allowing me to continue to daydream.

Awww, sweetheart! Does it help that I thought it was probably you? :D ;)

And this is the reason why I want to do it. I remember you telling me about this and I think it's a beautiful story. And we all know these films got me through my teenage years. They are incredibly good for that. Even when they're sad, they inspire.

And you're totally welcome. The day that I can't make someone happy to be a Superman fan, I'll shut down this LJ and go away. It means so much that I can pass this on. *snuggles you tight*

And where have you been, love? It's been months! How are things down there?

awww what an awesome thing to say. And so true. I thought I was the only Superman fan on the planet before the internet. :)

Why, WHY, couldn't we have all known about each other when we were younger? Would have saved so much angst!

XD Do you remember when there was only like two websites for Superman on the 'net? Geez. These kids would have gone nuts. *LOL*

*swoon* I love this! Kiran, where did you get this one? I'm just loving all of the pics that use Chris for the model on Superman. There's some Margot-ishness kicking around, too. Me, I liiiiiike it. Give me more, DC! Give me more!

And teeeeeeeell meeeee, who did the pic in your icon? I keep trying to find out.

I found it in the Superman comics thread at Blue tights :) I don't remember it being in a certain issue, but it might have been. the guy who did the art in my icon is Ryan Sook, you can check out his website at ryan sook.com Did you notice the similarities between that pic and the clois kiss where lois stands on a stack of newspapers in sv? :)

Ooooh! Thanks for the info and the link!

And oh, yeah! You should have heard me freaking out when I was spotting things! I'm not sure, but I think I mentioned the pic in my episode write-up for Idol.

*snugs* You are too awesome, K!
