I have discovered there are Certain Benefits for reading the fanfic before getting to the source text. One, I can be completely and utterly influenced to just adore a pairing I have yet to see onscreen. I'm sure that makes me beyond words shallow, but I don't even *care*. Oh man. I love wandering through a new fandom. Yes.
Actually, it's kind of fun. All the joy of exposure without any knowledge of canon influencing my thinking. Reminds me of the good old days of X-Men Movieverse, where I'd written several stories before the movie was sent to me by my beta when she realized that things could go south fast if I tried any complex plotlines. Which in retrospect is really damn funny, but more importantly, I got away with it.
This is happy. Also, knowing I'll have the eps as fast as the mail can travel? Good happy.
But. Thought. If someone had *told me* there was the equivalent of intergalactic vampires? I would have *so been there*.
Also, Sheppard is *pretty*. Wow.
Adn whoo! BSG season two in less than a month! Does life *get* any better than this? No, it does not.
