One reason I am sorta dreading the next month or so

Below, something that happened most recently in another fandom, but has happened more than once in ours, too. A fan who has a wonderful, unique experience gets schooled by people who know better. No, I don’t expect that our hero will be pictured carrying fans piggyback, though that would be kinda cool. Love silly, boyish Armitage! And I still love the euphoria of getting to experience an appearance of our guy anywhere it happens — I love being in the virtual crowd and feeling the energy that goes up as thousands of people squee simultaneously — and I love seeing the fan candids that appear afterwards. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Have I used the word “love” enough to indicate how I feel? Every one of those pictures reveals the clues about a unique, fulfilling, story.

Note that I’m not telling anyone what to do, just saying how I feel about what so often happens. I wish it wouldn’t. I hope it doesn’t! Comments closed for obvious reasons.
