sometimes I really, REALLY miss the days where I was new and shiny and had one fandom which happened to be large and still relatively stable (though waning) and everything was on lj, and all that put together meant lots of fandom friends that I talked to and formed fuzzy connections with. I miss *knowing* people, not just recognizing their usernames.

otoh, disconnect has the advantage of being insensate to fandom politics. I don't know who the bnf's are unless I'm hit over the head with a properly-labeled two-by-four, or who doesn't get along with who, or where the faction lines are, or...a million other things that were always tedious and pointless and dumb.

but still. sometimes when I'm wandering around a new fandom, I see a familiar username and am filled with glee because zomg I fangirled that person's writing so hard when I was a wee little fangirl, and it gives me nostalgia, because I don't really *experience* that anymore. and it's nice.
