Good to hear! I'm not trying to annoy people on purpose, I'm just trying to make a pretty bouquet of fan-blogs and resources. :D

And to the "rare" interests: what you are talking about is exactly why I'm making this feed and putting together blogs and journals from what seems like opposite sides of fandom. The larger fandoms can fend for themselves, also in the Nordics, but the "only" cosplayer on Island, the faeroese book-blogger, the lone Sam-in-drag-lover in Norrbotn, the MUNCLE-fan in Ă…land or me, the sole slash-writer in "Hellfjord": we need friends too. ;) And we have a great deal in common, in spite of our strange interests. To me, finding the [livejournal.com profile] scandafandom community felt like coming home, even if I'm all alone in most of my fandoms. And as you can guess, we are not there to build fences around our take on fandom, we're there to help and inspire each other with each other's surprising and awesome novel ideas about fun and fannish stuff.

And so this became a rant. Sorry about that. It's just that I've felt marginalized too. Some of the larger fan-communities can be shockingly unfriendly.
