deannie: Don't Bother Me (Default)
 In just a few short weeks, if all goes well, Magnificent Seven will surpass Sentinel as the fandom wherein I have written the most fics. 

As the title says, I'm not sure how I feel about that.

It blew past Real Ghostbusters and Stargate without comment or lament. I loved both fandoms, but I don't yearn for them the way I used to. They're the comfortable jeans that got the rip in them and you tossed them because, really, they were nice while they lasted but now they're done.

It even topped X-Files and I didn't blink. X-Files was where I cut my teeth, you know?

But Sentinel... I wouldn't be the writer I am without it. The fics I wrote in that fandom were maybe not the greatest fics of all time, but they helped me figure out what not to do. And they helped me figure out how to tell the story I wanted to. I watch it now and I STILL like it. I still have stories poking me to be finished, though I can't ever write them once I sit down to do so.

Sentinel's the pair of $300 designer jeans in the back of the closet, two sizes too small, that you just can't get rid of because someday—someday—you might fit into them again.

I don't know if I want this upstart pair of flashy jeans called Magnificent Seven to eclipse those designer beauties in the closet, you know?

But in just two more stories—stories that are already half written—it will.

Off to ponder what that means...
