Oh wow, I'd heard bits and pieces about your experience going from FPS to RPS but this is the first time I've heard the whole thing. Wow. I think I was super lucky I fell into RPF BEFORE LJ, because prior to that all my fannish activity had been very specific, you join specific MLs for specific things. LJ is great because it's so personal and you can put it all together, but at the same time, having everything under one banner means mixing your fandoms and in this case it sounds like that was... not great.
I didn't know you read SG fic! It's funny I knew you were popslash but those two things are kind of stupidly separated in my head, which is kind of ridiculous considering how much crossover there is. WHAT DID YOU READ? *chinhands*
I'm SO happy about the change of attitude in fandom. I LOVE that people (mostly) seem to be quite accepting of other people's preferences/kinks, in a "I may not like it, but I don't have to read it, and I won't try to have it taken down". I mean, coming back after 7 years was such an eye opener! I remember an SPN macro that basically said "welcome to SPN, where RPS is the higher ground" because of the FPS incest. I find that FASCINATING. But pleasing! Yay RPS being acceptable (in fandom anyways)
Thanks SO MUCH for sharing, what an interesting origin tale. <3
