I first watched QaF when BBC3 showed it in 2001(?) and I was hooked. Then they didn't show more I was driven to buy the DVD boxsets...I had alerts on ebay waiting for them to come out and watched them in about a week each!(E4 showed S3 a while back but the other seasons have not yet been shown on UK TV).
I only discovered fandom about 6 months ago and am still discovering new and fantastic writers and artists all the time. Of course, the S5 ending dissapointed me greatly so I tend to seek out post-S5 reunion fic or AR fic to satiate me.
I don't post here but I can be found on LJ at pinkfriction - I love new friends - I post mainly RL stuff but I also have just started to write fic (posted at lmmstories - BBM fic there as well if anyone interested. Also warning - I <3 the lesbians).
