Okay wankers, wtf

Guys. GUYS!

I am oblivious to wank in Merlin fandom. I don't follow the anon meme, hell, I don't even know what it's CALLED; I'd have to GOOGLE IT. I don't have many Merliny people on my flist. I don't pay wankers a single spot of attention. I came into the fandom at what was, apparently, a low-wank point, and I've made very good, close friends, of exclusively mellow awesome people, because I was a reluctant and extremely annoyed BNF in a previous fandom and I learned my lessons WELL.

So now today (and maybe in the past couple weeks it's been simmering, I can't really tell...) my flist explodes with people being FUCKING GODDAMN VAGUE about WANK and FEELINGS and related bullshit, and all those cool mellow wankless awesome people? MAYBE LESS WANKLESS THAN I THOUGHT? But I can't TELL because I DONT KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING. Somebody fucking FILL ME IN before I have to strap on my HAZMAT SUIT and dive into the anon meme, and somebody SKETCH THIS SHIT OUT FOR ME because I am relatively new to the fandom and don't know sordid ~history~ crappity do. I would like to comfort people in their time of need, because I am, in my never humble opinion, kind of awesome at macheteing through wankery, and not letting this crap get to me because I've been doing this shit in one way or another for something nearing two decades now, but I have NO IDEA whose toes I'm stepping or what to do or say.

Fuck, people, you've got to give me deets or I will have to go spelunking and I don't WANT TO because UGH. Primary sources, in fandom, are the WORST.

If you don't feel comfortable leaving me a comment on this F-LOCKED POST, then you can email me, it's just my lj username at gmail. I just want to make sure people are happy and having a good time - as it's psmithery's birthday rather soon I was going to try to arrange something for her pleaaasure, but if the fandom fucking self-destructs before the end of the month, how will that happen???

PS: fanks aerisa for your lovely lj-gift, you really didn't hafta but it's appreciated all the same. ^_^;

Personally I have never said anything on the anon meme that I would not, or have not, said under my own name. I'm open about being on there with my flist and anyone else who asks. Of course I understand that people have many issues and different levels of personal comfort with it but if you are going to draw opinions on me, personally, from it then I would rather be defriended also. My reasons for going there are my own. We all do fandom differently, right? I'm perfectly cool with friends not being cool with that sort of fandom space as part of their fandom experience, as long as they understand that I am cool with it.

Right. I'm kinda like "whatever" to all of this. Don't bring it to my LJ, and be however open you want to be in your own space and on your own time. You can fandom however you please; why does my opinion matter to you? Don't answer that; it's rhetorical. This isn't some sort of litmus test for people to "reveal" themselves to me as anon-memers, okay?

What's more, friending or defriending me is really irrelevant, personally. I flocked this post so other people might feel more comfortable replying to it, not because of my own feelings. My LJ is such a jumbled mess of randomness and rare posting that the only reason I friend people at all is to get to know them a little better because it's certainly not like people friending me are going to discover any of *my* hidden depths.
