According to the dates on my account over at my old stomping ground, I first joined the site in March of 2005 and completed my first fic in October of that year.

That makes 2015 my 10th anniversary in the Saiyuki fandom. Time flies! I feel so nostalgic.

I remember when I first discovered Saiyuki, maybe a couple of years before entering the fandom, how it drew me in so strongly. It was as if I'd been craving for the story and the characters without even realizing it. That sounds corny, but it's just true. Somehow, it was what I needed. And as a constant companion, I suppose it's had some influence on me over the years.

Ten years later, I am still a loyal and devoted fan of the series. I am still attached to the fandom, despite how sadly inactive it has become. I still appreciate the friendships and acquaintances I've been able to gain, despite many of them having drifted away and/or disappeared. And I'm thankful for those who are still around.

I hope to celebrate by completing the fic I've been working on before the end of the year. I regret how little I've been able to write over the years, but the future is still open.

In another ten years, will I still be here? Will our boys finally have completed their long journey west? Time will tell.

Do you know when your fandom anniversary is?
