12:09 pm - It just gets worse and worse...
And now we are up to Chapter 9 of the MsScribe epic.

And it has to be one of the most horrific accounts of fandom I have ever come across. Some pooor woman with cancer getting stomped on by a whole bunch of BNFs just because she asked one of them to link her fundraising website. After they had been going on about how fandom supports it's own and all that, too.

I don't think I have ever been so appalled by fandom as a whole. The things that were said...

Yep - I think that could be true. It just...it makes me depressed. Because fandom is supposed to be a fun thing where you meet interesting people and squee over the particular book/tv show/movie/pairing that you like and then have respectful and interesting debates and discussions about it. *sighs* Again, the fact that I tend to expect human beings to be good and decent and reasonable has come back to bite me.

I think to cheer myself up I shall watch the preview for the Christmas Invasion, stare at my David Tennant icons and possibly look for someone goodfic.
