time. What time is it?

I was joking in some thread about procrastinating from school papers by writing Doctor Who fanfiction, and then I thought... Wow. I was DOING that back in junior high. Writing Jon Pertwee and Jo Grant in the Atlantis episode which I loved with great love.

That was the Third Doctor. True, in UK, they were on the fourth by then, but still.

There are junior high schoolers TODAY who are procrastinating writing Doctor Who fanfic. Only now it's what, the eleventh Doctor?

The same holds for Trek, really, although not quite so much since Trek output is in a bit of a lull right now. But after the next movie it will again be true.

Fandom is oooooooold. It's just that now it's a lot more communal than it used to be, when it was often practiced in solitary or shared with a friend or two.
