As often happens, I've lost my taste for a certain fandom and have stopped reading all but the most highly recommended fics. Which got me to wondering about how many fandoms I've passed through in the years.

Farscape was my first adult fandom-- I fell in love with the show and when trying to connect with other fans online I discovered internet fannish life. Remember bulletin boards, listservs and onelist? And how everything was stored on individual websites, and you had to request passwords for access?

Farscape was a tiny fandom, and the best authors were active in other fandoms, so as I followed them my interests grew. I think X-Files was my next online fandom, but a dozen years later it's hard to recall, so I'm trying to put together a list. I'm sure this is incomplete, but it's a start.

Fandoms that I followed compulsively:
Farscape (also wrote stories in this fandom)
X-Files
Sentinel (saw only one episode but was heavily into fandom)
Smallville
Stargate Atlantis
Buffy / Angel
CSI - Las Vegas and Miami. For some reason, New York never clicked.
NCIS
Criminal Minds
Hawaii 5-0
Sherlock (BBC)
Suits (again, watched one episode, fandom interests entirely online)
White Collar
Star Trek (primarily reboot)
Avengers Universe (started with Iron Man, now the Avengers movieverse)
Dresden Files (also wrote stories in this fandom)
Harry Potter

Fandoms where I read some of the fic, usually if it was heavily rec'ed or written by a favorite author:
Forever Knight
Highlander (TV)
Due South
Stargate SG-1
Supernatural
NCIS LA
Leverage
Merlin
Red Dragon universe (Lecter/Graham)

Then, of course, for some writers I'll read any fandom they've written, which is how I found myself reading Hockey RPF, The Social Network, etc.
