You know you're a goner when the first conscious thought of the day is The Doctor, and how he and Rose might be doing. And when tears well in your eyes at the next thought, that it'll all be over in 3 weeks -- no more Doctor until Christmas, and no more Nine after that. Bleugggh!

My fandom priorities have definitely changed. BtVS is over and done with, Spike's gone off God knows where and frankly, I don't care if he sends a postcard or not; and JM is just an actor who may or may not appear on a television screen near me at any time in the future. Ever since Moonlight Rising last year, I've been losing interest steadily; and now it's come to that point where I've lost the ability to squee over anything he does...a fact I acknowledged during the concert I attended late in April.

And so I've deleted all the files and folders with pictures and articles of/about Spike and JM, BtVS and AtS, given up trying to catch up with unread fanfic, and will -fingers crossed- soon be saying goodbye to my present lay-out.

But I don't want to sound ungrateful: I still appreciate JM, for everything he, as Spike, has brought me: hours of fun and enjoyment watching his adventures in Sunnydale, finding others who were equally fascinated by the character and the show, getting onto LJ, forging friendships, and taking a trip to the States that led to my discovering the folky/rocky music of Common Rotation for myself -- a new fandom is born from the ashes of the old!

And another is born from my newfound interest in television: the Ninth and Rose have taken over as my OTP of choice, and even if it comes with a definite expiry date, I'm determined to enjoy their journey through time and relative dimensions in space to the last -- till Christmas at least.

I think all the Doctor Who icons gave it away.

Like this one, you mean? But they're all so beautiful!

But just to prove you wrong, my iconage stands currently at:

21 BtVS/AtS, of which 6 Spike
1 JM (in Cool Money)
9 CoRo
9 Doctor Who
7 other

Conclusion: I need more CoRo, and more Doctor.

What's a vampire with a soul compared to a Time Lord with an infectious grin, anyway? ;-)

Spike, has brought me: hours of fun and enjoyment watching his adventures in Sunnydale, finding others who were equally fascinated by the character and the show, getting onto LJ, forging friendships, and taking a trip to the States that led to my discovering the folky/rocky music of Common Rotation for myself -- a new fandom is born from the ashes of the old!

hahaha substitute a Samwise Gamgee for Spike and Middle Earth for Sunnydale and that pretty much sums me up too and I totally need an icon cleanup ... but my CoRo icon count still wins at 16 :)

and you are totally a goner, bless ya. I'm an episode behind - got to catch up with the recordings - immediately if not sooner!!!

I know. It's sad, really...I'm just opening myself up for so much pain when the end comes...

my CoRo icon count still wins at 16 :)

That's right; but only because I don't know where to find them. I can't make them myself (see example) and those I do find...well, everyone has them.

as i said the other day: i am quite sure that i could live the rest of my life without a rerun of BtVS or AtS & be perfectly happy.

And I'm sure that it won't be long before I'll feel exactly the same way about this ninth regeneration of The Doctor and his adventures as well! ;-)

Obviously, it hasn't happened for me yet, but I do understand. I was completely addicted to the X-Files until the series finale aired. And then I didn't care if I never saw another episode. It may eventually happen with Spike, but we'll hope not. After all, I did buy all those DVDs... :)

Me, too -- well, all those videos ;-)! I never watched them more than once. And I still haven't finished Season One...well, there's no Spike in it, you see?

I go through phases. I was once totally addicted to the X-Files, and I still appreciate (the early to mid seasons) and post about them occasionally. I still have great affection. I figure the same is/will be true of BtVS. It's certainly true of Farscape.

And I've only managed 1 ep of the recent Dr. Who, but I'm looking forward to the other eps.

I'm just a sci-fi kind of girl. :)

It's happening to us all. I have not totally given up the BtVS & Ats, because the muse still visits and I have a couple of decent stories to finish and post. But I do find that most of my attention is diverted by BSG now days. But I am ever so happy to have had Spike if for no other reason than the wonderful friends he helped me find.

I found out over the weekend that my brother-in-law (computer geek to the nth degree) has most of the new Dr. episodes and we will soon have copies of them to watch.

Yeah, I'll always love Spike for that. But I'm happy to leave him be now.

Yay! Can't wait to hear what you think!

Right there with you. (Though I intend to watch a lot of the classic Doctor Who eps this summer/fall to tide me over before the Christmas special.)

I really didn't expect to be feeling this fannish again about any show. It's like falling in love again! :-)

Do you know, that's not even a bad idea...I'd love to get reacquainted with the Fifth Doctor, who was the hero in my day -- he was quirky and fun and dangerous to know just like Nine, but I can't recall whether he was sexy at all...;-)

It's like falling in love again! :-)

Oh, totally!
