I've noticed that people are doing the Whos in Whoville thing and shouting their existence/nonexistence to the world. I exist, I suppose. I've met *70* people on my flist. And I owe most of those meetings to either Writercon (both 2004 and 2006) or Winchestercon (which I only attended for a few hours--in the bar *g*).
So I guess a possible solution would be to have a Smallville version of said fandom con. Not necessarily one that involves merchandizing and dealer rooms and meet-and-greets with the stars, but one specifically for the fandom a la Writercon and Winchestercon: fic writers, vidders, artists, readers and general fandom people. Maybe panels, canon vs. fanon, sex in Smallville vs. metrosexual Metropolis, ensemble writing, a vid showing. It might be *really* small so maybe not that much. You know, a convention for us to, dunno, *meet* each other, bond face-to-face, and confirm each other's existence. With possible drinking. *g*
So...what do you think?
