Reposting one of my favorite posts, from earlier journal.

On being a fandom!whore
There are some things that it's fun to be in at the beginning of a fandom, have all the episodes, pictures, screenshots, of the fandom. It's fun to say that you saw it first, heard about it through your fandom groups, saw it on your fandom splattered computer. It can also be fun to join a fandom late in the game, as I have with Buffy and Angel. If you join in later, you can see ENTIRE SEASONS all in one go. You can't say you saw it first, but you can look at the millions of bytes of fanfic available to you, all rec'ced by people whose tastes you trust.. You don't have to wait for it to become popular, you love it, and that is enough.

Srsly yo

It's like that with me and Legacy of Kain and Halo. Yet, at least in most Fandoms you get some sort of closure -- I'm not sure Kain will ever have an proper ending :'(
