I definitely don't crave fanfic as much as I used to. I still enjoy it occasionally, I'm currently reading some House fanfic to relax before Craig. I used to be absolutely addicted to fanfic, I'm glad I'm not anymore.
As for being active in the House fandom, I'm not really that active. I enjoy reading updates and such but I'm really in the fandom for the fiction. I went through years of watching House before it occurred to me to look into fandom. I don't like the hate between the H\Cuddy and H\Wilson shippers. I'm H\W (as lovers or platonic life partners) but I used to like H\C together. I don't anymore because I don't like how Cuddy is written anymore. I have no hate for the ship though and seeing the wank is obnoxious.

That's exactly why I feel funny using the term "fandom" for the Craig community. To me fandom is about ships and fanfiction. I'm not into that at all for Craig. I read one fanfic with him and though it was well written, it still squicked me out because he's a real person. The only "fandom" I can see myself in with Craig is for his Mr. Wick character. Even so, I wouldn't "ship" him with anybody, I'd just like a funny story. I don't read DCS fics though, never got into that.
I just like finally meeting people who appreciate him like I do. :)

It's one of the last Wavys? Are they running low?

Someone on ONTD Latenight said they were running out of Wavys!

Same here, I still enjoy it on occasion, but I don't write it, or seek it out nearly as often as I once did.

Another issue I have with "traditional" fandoms is that nowadays often shipper wars overwhelm things and can ruin a fandom. If you write a fic, it has to be one of the fic's big ships, no exceptions, otherwise it will be abandoned to on the margins of fandom. So say if you want to write a purely plot related House fic, nothing AU, ships stay as they are on the show, I would guess that the chance that no matter how well it is written, no one will read it because it isn't about a ship.

Heck, for Craig Ferguson I don't even know if I want to start using the term "fandom," quite yet, because it isn't what I consider to be traditional fandom. Yes the aspects are certainly there, but we don't have shipping wars yet!
