It was my dad’s birthday last week. I’ve been thinking about standom for the past few days, and about what makes someone dive into super fandom. For me, it was definitely my dad’s willingness to encourage all my fan collections and obsessions. Every Sunday after church he’d drive me and my best friend to the markets to trade our Spice World stickers, and before we had the internet at home, he’d print off Buffy gossip at work and bring it home for me to read, along with the latest Betty and Veronica double digest. He was into sci-fi and comics and fantasy, and his mum, my Nanna, had her own collection that probably sparked the standom in him. Anyway, it’s interesting to me how it’s been passed down and I wish I could’ve talked to him about how much potential Riverdale had and how shit it got so quickly lol. Gonna stop being sincere on here again now bye!
