It's hard being a geeky fan. It's harder being an actual geek. The geek who'd spend time, effort and braincells making tributes to original creations just because they like to. It's hard when you don't get paid for that or get good grades or any kind of actual benefit. It's harder making your families and sometimes your friends understand why you love to do what you do.
So why do I do it?
Because I'm better off regretting posting stuff than letting ideas slip me by useless and cluttered inside my mind. Ideas are meant to be shared. Or they will bounce around your head relentlessly demanding a medium to be released upon. If you're stubborn enough to say no, it will glare resentfully until you see that it's actually a mirror you're standing in front of.
Plus, it comes with the perks of meeting like-minded people that shows me I'm not alone with my madness. So even if I'm with people who don't appreciate what I do- even my sensible self, it's great that there are people out there (faceless with coded names as they are) who does- including the part of me whose sanity and maturity I question.
Are there anyone else out there, when stimulated by an idea, has no choice but to follow it through?
