My view here may be coloured yesterday by the fact that I was mourning Andy, and seeing fandom through the eyes of someone who was deeply saddened at the loss of a favourite actor and character, especially at the young age of 33, so I was in no mood for hearing about any sort of fandom wank, especially not for something which should bring joy, such as a convention.

Conventions are at time to get together with people with the same interests as you, meet fellow fans, lj friends (if you are on lj) the actors. Many people who go share their experience, pictures and vids with those of us who cannot, and spread the joy around. Many who met Andy at conventions told us stories about what a wonderful guy he was in Real Life, and how giving he was to fans. This was a fitting tribute to a wonderful man, not something to start a wank about.

I'm not pointing the finger at any particular fandom, each and every single one has the times, and people, when the wank starts. but really, in the great scheme of things, fandom for any sort of fantasy programme is built on someones imagination, be that Joss, Eric or RTD or anyone. It is not RL, we meet the public image of the actor, complaining that they bring their girlfriend is not on. That is their RL and should be respected.

I'm in no mood for wank, probably not for a while.

Challenge is this Sunday the 5th April.

Open to Drabbles (100 words), Flashfic (101-500 words) or Ficlets (501-1,000 words)
Manips, icons and banners
Picspam

I will make a masterlist on the Monday from everyone who took part, and what was created.

Just this once, it is all about Lorne (crossovers more than welcome. Jack and Ianto go to LA to investigate alien sighting in a bar, and end up being roped into singing? The Doctor hears some wonderful music, which eases his sorrow from the Oods sad song, or Sam and Dean walk in for a drink to find themselves surrounded by demons singing on stage.....any fandom and every fandom Lorne can have a guest role in).

Prompts "It's Not Easy Being Green" and Caritas.
