SV a dying fandom?! PAH!  
I can't tell you all how wonderful it was to wake up this morning to an Inbox exploding with love. You guys have overwhelmed me with your messages of affection and admiration for one another--all the hugs, kisses, blushing, thank yous, squeeing, flirting and grinning make me all glowy. There are old fans, new fans, lurker fans, anonymous fans--thank you ALL for showing up and making this a success.

Smallville fen do Love really really well!
I shouldn't be surprised! A show with that much love in it itself can't help but attract a bunch of very mutually appreciative people. So don't repress it! Go express it! *cringes at my own cheerleading*

Seriously, the SV Love Meme, at six pages and still going strong, it makes for wonderful reading. Thank you to everyone who spread the word about the post. There are people I don't know sending messages of appreciation to other people I don't know!! Eeee! *excited*

In case you miss it in the stampede of love, ciaan posted a description of the imaginary city of fandom.

And now Zod's turned up, so I *know* it's a success! (Hee!)

So go read, go chat, go squee, discover new friends.

Meanwhile, I'd like to do a special shoutout to l_vera01. I haven't thanked her in the meme yet, but not only is she a pleasure to beta for, she also sends me links to hot new Jamie Bamber photos!

'Twas good, yeah?! The comments just get better and better...

LOL! Totally my pleasure, babe. Just doing my bit to send the Jamie goodness to it's rightful place where it can be truly appreciated!

Not a problem- people that make the SV fandom better than it already is (which is pretty hard, in my opinion), deserve as much appreciation as possible :-)

You rock, you know. I've been doing my best to drive your comments up to 1000, but I think I've already said something about everyone I know well enough to say anything about in the fandom!

Hmm...I haven't knelt before Zod, though. ::Rushes off to do that::
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Zodbop_radar on June 16th, 2006 04:19 am (UTC)
Hee! Thank you! I remember the race on to get you over the 1000 a few weeks back...

And I just have to say that I love Zod SO MUCH! He needs to attend every party ever from now on. *hopes he sees this*
Nora Norwichnorwich36 on June 16th, 2006 05:18 am (UTC)
I think Zod and Jor-El are actually getting it on in your comments! Talk about an SV love-in!!!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Zodbop_radar on June 16th, 2006 06:05 am (UTC)
I KNOW!!! It's a little disturbing...
lambkin rose: that's not funnybland on June 16th, 2006 05:08 am (UTC)
Oh Zod, what will he think of next?

That said, thank you so much for setting up the meme and my impromptu 'out'-ing. My cover was bound to be blown sooner or later!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!bop_radar on June 16th, 2006 10:59 am (UTC)
Oh Zod, what will he think of next?
Hee! I don't know but I think it will be something to do with Kal-El's gorgeous torso eyes!

Your impromptu 'out'ing was brilliant! It was so cute and spontaneous!
Nora Norwich: Chloe toastnorwich36 on June 16th, 2006 05:49 am (UTC)
Hey, your post on BNFs just got metafandomed. Congratulations! (I think this is a cool thing, anyway). I wasn't sure if you had metafandom friended or not, so I thought I'd let you know. You're famous!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Ericabop_radar on June 16th, 2006 06:04 am (UTC)
WOAH. *stunned*
I don't have them friended, but that's brilliant. I've been neglecting that post in favour of the SV love-in... Thanks for letting me know! *blush* (I think that's cool too.)
Enderenderwiggin24 on June 16th, 2006 10:08 am (UTC)
you see, I *knew* you would made it to metafandom *g*.......
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!bop_radar on June 16th, 2006 11:00 am (UTC)
Ender, I am more and more awed by your omniscience every day!
(i.e. You know everything--even before it happens, it seems!)
Enderenderwiggin24 on June 16th, 2006 11:03 am (UTC)
haa, but you see, apart from my perfect orwell'sche fandom survaillance system, I am also member of a HYPER SECRET cabal society, a true SMOF!!!
*giggles*

big BNFs, little BNFs, little fen, or big fens are nothing against the SMOFs!!!!!!!!!!Heeee
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!bop_radar on June 16th, 2006 12:00 pm (UTC)
You're in a CABAL!? You're in a secret society!? Ooooohhhh!!! Awesome! This wee!fan is awestruck. And SMOF is such a funny term! For some reason it makes me think of the Jedi Master Chefs... *blinks*
Enderenderwiggin24 on June 16th, 2006 12:08 pm (UTC)
you wee!fan !!!
haaa! just wait, until you see what I have done to you in my rec for svroundtable (it will be up tonight).

i will kneel only before my beloved Emperor Palpatine!....err , uhh, wrong movie, the dark force will be with me.........err ZOD!Lex...will be with me...

Re: you wee!fan !!!
*rotfl* Use the force for good, not evil, SMOF!!
OMG! I can't stop laughing!
(though the first part of that comment scares me a little!)
Enderenderwiggin24 on June 16th, 2006 12:34 pm (UTC)
*g* I am good at unveiled threats ;D
you should be scared!!!

but alas, I wrote to you about SMOFs before you started the insanity of the love meme, (why the hell is google stopping the notifications, I thought, you have 3 gigs of storage!?!?!)

OK, I am leaving now, will be back in 5 hours or so :D
lets see, if the # of comments will explode some more!

Re: *g* I am good at unveiled threats ;D
Hee!! Gmail started sending my comment notifications into the Spam folder for a while because there was so many of them! *lol*

Ok, see you in 5 hours when you return from your mysterious activities! ;)
Lily: sv lex blue wet and mouthcandidlily on June 16th, 2006 08:42 am (UTC)
Whoa! Looks like there's a bit of Zod/Jor-El love going on! Now it's *really* a love meme!

Thanks again for posting it, by the way. I have posted about a million times, both anonymously and otherwise, because I keep thinking of more people to love on. *hugs*
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!bop_radar on June 16th, 2006 11:01 am (UTC)
I KNOW! It's like a love in over there... That wasn't quite what I had in mind! *lol*

And I know what you mean... I could go on and on too... *has RSI*
Enderenderwiggin24 on June 16th, 2006 10:09 am (UTC)
and wow, thank you so much for the heads up for ZOD!LEX's appearance otherwise I would have totally missed that!!!
cant have that, NOT to kneel before him, heee...

He's uh... kinda busy right now! ;)
But yes--the arrival of Zod!Lex definitely needed to be shared. It really was the icing on the cake of the Love Meme.

Re: 8 pages!
Thank you! Clearly we DID need it! I'm so glad. Hey, and I'm totally going to email you tomorrow about editing when I've got through my massive comment backlog.
Moonwitch Iconsmoonwitch on June 19th, 2006 09:59 am (UTC)
I hope you don't mind, but I've added you. You seem very interesting, but what intrigues me most is not that you're a fellow Aussie, but that you're an editor. I'm interested in becoming an editor or a publisher after highschool/uni, so I was wondering if I'd be able to pick your brains one day about how you got into the profession and some things that you find helpful with your job, etc. Maybe not right now, but sometime in the future? :) Anyway, hi. Hah. [/introduction]

Thank you! *g* And absolutely: feel free to pick my brains. ;)
