Were you a part of a fandom before but left it entirely?
I was a part of the Sonic fandom for quite a while. I was utterly addicted to it and even made an OC (Oh regretted this to this day). Then I took a break from it for some reason. When I had gained a bit of rationality as I matured, I realized just how pathetic I was when I was a part of the fandom. I seriously wanted to soco myself for being such a loser who is way too obsessed on one thing. Thank glob I was able to get over that stupid phase. But thanks to that I learned a lesson, never dwelve too deep into a fandom, the sole reason I'm still not calling myself a Brony who buys the merch, writes fanfic, creates OCs etc. but just a regular plain ol' fã (who may draw humanized MLP fanart from time to time). Another reasons are the fãs of Sonic. Most of them don't know shit about gaming and treat the Mario franchise like shit (which is ironic since nintendo kinda own's Sonic Team's bunda now) and most of the are quite insane in the membrane, having sexual fantasies about the characters and other unspeakable things they do.
Note to the sane fãs I said "most" meaning not all.
So how about you?
