I wasn't going to make a 'The end is neigh' post but having read the numerous posts made by my flisties over the last few days, I couldn't let today pass without comment after all.
Smallville is not my favourite show of all time or the one I love the most but it is the one that I've invested the most time and energy in. I think I found the show and the fadom at the most exciting time for Chloe fans. Hiatus after season five was a magical time and I lurked and squeed and flailed and dreamed of possibilities and then came the spoilers about Jimmy.
That pretty sums up my Smallville experience in a nutshell. It's been a rollercoaster but happily one that I was able to share with people who became my friends.
I mean seriously, people have had babies, gotten married, broken up, graduated, found jobs, been fired, supported each other, met up and just been all around amazing. I love my corner of fandom and I love the connections I've made and I don't think this experience will ever be repeated again for me. Not with another show. Not with another fandom.
I have my issues with the show but I'm thankful that it brought so many of you into my life!
ETA: Allison Mack and Tom Welling will never not be the most adorable people ever.
I was reading over some of the comments on my old fic and I realized that almost every single one of them has a comment by someone who passed away recently. Although we were never very close, it just reminded me how sweet she was and I wish I'd been more active on her LJ. It makes me very sad that I wasn't.
Carina MacKenzie (@cadlymack on twitter) just confirmed that Allison Mack does not have a part on HBO's Girls. She was asked by a few of us to look into it yesterday and she's great for getting to it so soon but I'm so disappointed. Damn them, they don't know what they're missing out on.
