@lilithsaintcrow Oh, man. Yeah, I've noticed the correlations there too. Sometimes the greatest enemy to a fandom seems to be its own fans.
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
