Is there some weird kind of syzygy* going on in the constellations? There must be a reason for all the batshit fen coming out of the woodwork and being even more batshit insane than ever.

I fly under the radar for the most part in SPN fandom, I have no problem with this because if you know me at all you know exactly how I feel about BNFs and wannabe BNFs. But seriously, honey, either the email was paraphrased badly by you, it's a hoax or you made it up.

We all know that at least a couple of people involved in the production are aware not only of online fandom, but specifically of LiveJournal's subsect of online fandom. Why do I say this? Well, lemme see, there would be the whole thank you that those of us who contributed to spn_postcards received, there would be the thank yous the organisers of the various birthday projects have received, there would be the comments made to organisers expressing interest in fandom_rocks and the like. And there's the fact that we all know Kripke's on here somewhere.

The production office are 'au fait' with 'live journal', trust me on this.

I'm not saying that your community wouldn't be recognised, because it is one of the largest communities devoted to the show on LJ, but you are not 'influential' in this fandom. Let's be honest here, a lot of what you do is either illegal or at the very least bordering on the edges of copyright law. It's what the community is known for, it's why - up until this morning - I was a member although I have not posted there for months and it's been off my default view for a lot longer than that. The production company cannot be seen to be supporting the illegal distribution of copyrighted materials, and that my dear, is what your community does.

I fear you've been had, in which case I feel really sorry for you and hope you find whoever has targeted you thus.  I would rather think that - distressing as it may be - than think that you are making this all up in a bid to garner some of the attention that has been rightfully given to fandom_rocks which is after all a charitable exercise.

As I've said, I fly under the radar of this person - aside from a few graphics posts she's commented on we've had no contact. The reason I am not posting this to her community or to her personally is because of who I am friends with. This post is off my own back, no one else has asked me to post this or encouraged me to do so. I am not mentioning names because if this person has been tricked then I would like to save her further embarassment.

*who says TV is bad for the intelligence? I learned that word from watching the X Files. *nods* TV make my brain think good. (although apparently I can't spell...

Right, so I went and checked the latest comments out. One particular reply by said person had me in tears:

'If i post names and phones, you know what will happen. It's different than posting a studio address.
It's not a prank and i know that from a source.
Wow! The 'other' side of the fandom feels a little annoyed they didn't got an e-mail and they try to wank now. 'Congrats'!'

ZOMG, fandom has SIDES?! That's it, forget being polite in my post now.

As for icon, I made this in less then a minute. It's actually quite crap, but feel free to snag while we make up a batch of better ones!

That's exactly the comment that so infuriated me. Right up until then I was prepared to accept that she was completely unaware it was a hoax - but that, to me, smacks of her setting up a 'the mean girlz r picking on meeeee!' defence for when someone finally calls her out on it.

There's also something in the comments about how her the comm's contribution to the show will become clear soon. Yeah, how exactly? Is there going to be a plotpoint in the show where the boys end up in a parallel universe where they're TV characters and stumble across the community whilst researching on the web? *sighs*


Awesome, btw, I will be snagging - and using - the icon ASAP! (although a cruel little part of me is delighting in using the Jensen & Daneel one!)

It's pissed me off, that has. WTF GET OUT OF MY FANDOM. I'm now actually hoping/praying that she's made it up and well be outed and be so ashamed that she'll have no potion but to commint pseuicide. Seriously.

But, that maybe asking too much. *pouts*

LMAO, I love it! parallel universe indeed! *snickers*

LOL, how did we move over from being Wankahs to Wankers?!
