A newbie again.

It's funny. Doctor Who was my first fandom, way back when I was 12 and stayed up late to see Peter Davison on PBS. I've been watching the revival since it premiered, and now I'm feeling fannish again. It's been a long dry spell since BSG ended, and maybe I'm falling for this show (again) because I love that feeling of being wrapped up in a TV show. Whatever the case -- and despite the problems with the current season -- I'm loving the show and everyone on that damn TARDIS. I even kinda want to write fic, though I have absolutely no good ideas whatsoever.

That said, I'd forgotten how difficult it is to break into a new fandom. I never had any problems in the past. I joined LJ during my BTVS days, and when I moved on to BSG, many of my lovely friends here were on the same page. I don't know anyone in DW fandom, unless any of y'all are involved! It looks like most of the activity is over on Tumblr, which has always sorta mystified me. I generally prefer ongoing discussion posts rather than the rapid-fire pic posts and short bursts of chatter that seem to be the norm over there, and I can't keep up. But I went ahead and started an account, so we'll see how that goes. Ultimately, I don't know how involved I really want to be -- at least, compared to the way I used to be on top of everything -- but I'll give it a whirl and see what happens!

In other news... I'm thrilled that Homeland won so many Emmys tonight, and that the season premiere is next Sunday. Good timing, that! And the local Catching Fire fun continues, as I read they're filming the big party at Snow's mansion in a house that's literally down the street from me. Okay, seven miles down the street, but that still counts. ;)
