rory & lorelai

june something day 7

Day 7: What's the longest time you've been in a fandom. Not necessarily your oldest fandom, but a fandom that you started and still continue to read/write/create content for in some way.

I think that would have to be Gilmore Girls or Smallville. I lean toward Gilmore Girls (Rory/Jess to be specific, but I do also love Luke/Lorelai), because I have both written and read fic in the last year, while with Smallville, I don't read much fic anymore, just write it. Also I feel like I started reading Gilmore Girls fanfic on FFN before I discovered Smallville fandom. The show ended of course way before Smallville did, and Rory's open ending really had me looking for a lot of Literati endgame fics and then with the Revival a few years ago, that had me again looking for more content.

Of course, at the peak of my fandom obsession, I was definitely way more involved in the Smallvile fandom, but now I think I have a mix of GG and SV friends on Tumblr, so it really could go both ways these days.
