seraph_lost sent me this pile of hilarity comparing fandoms to diffrent drugs, which, me being me, made me want to offer my two bits.

* * * * *

Star Wars IV-VI = Cocaine It may cause you some embarrassment to admit at first, because it's been a long time since this movie trilogy was the hippest, freshest thing in town. In some circles, its gold-plated reputation could even peg you as an elitist. But once its old-school appeal, along with the nearly atomic burst of energy and anything-goes confidence you get from indulging, hits you where you live--and upon realizing that the original Star Wars just speaks to your go-get-'em, 80s mindset--you decide, Aw, screw it. Nothing becomes a classic without damn good reason.

LOTR RP = Acid (the bad kind) To quote the movie Airplane: "You got hold of that bad acid, and didn't come down for two weeks. You kept telling everyone that you were Jesus Christ, and then you...jumped off a roof because you thought you could fly." Excepting the friends I made, and a few logistical details, that's my whole trip within this fandom. Almost two years after defecting, I'm still having flashbacks. Yeesh.

Heh. Just my experience; others may equate it with...I dunno...glue huffing or whatever. It's up to them.

Star Trek=Crank
It's cheap, it's ubiquitous in certain neighborhoods, and anyone who's aware of it or (God help their souls) has been there before knows to go in with low expectations. You can justify it by noting that everyone around you is swimming in it too, but deep down you know better. Fuck Mary Jane - this is the gateway.

I'd say the only message to take away from this whole business is: drugs are bad, mmmkay?

Eh...depends on the drug. Some of the figurative varities are okay. ;)

Given what I've seen here, I'd have to disagree and say "Stay away from drugs, kids.".

And pssst :whispers: It's "varieties".
