does anyone else think about how fandoms are like cities?
you got your big, bustling ones that are really diverse and busy, maybe a little hard to navigate and full of crime, good areas and bad areas. the locals know the hot spots and how to get around
then the mid-range towns with big city attitudes even though they’re not big cities, a few local hubs of activity, the crazy dude ranting about stuff on the street corner who makes people uncomfortable
and then the small spot towns where everybody knows everybody, you can’t go out without seeing somebody you know, and there’s only one grocery store
