Fandom comes from within

Fandom

Over 20 years of being a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan, many memories have filled my head, some of which I hold very close to my heart.  Even though time has changed, the memories I will never forget are of those who have touched me through the fandom.  I’ll always be thankful for any lessons learned, gifts given, or time spent with me.  This is a chance to share some of those times.  So I would like to share a story that dates back to before the internet, to a younger me reading the letter pages of the Mirage Comic Books, to a Turtle Fan who still thrives in the fandom to this day and the lesson I hold from meeting her online.

My first Internet meet up

Ever get nervous about meeting fellow fans from the Internet?  Ever wonder if the person you’re talking to sitting on the other side of the screen is really who they say they are?  Has this prevented you from going out and meeting fellow fans?  I know I was nervous when I first got online, all you heard on the news was the bad stuff.
