Ok, it's really not a surprise to anyone (I don't think) that I'm still a huge Backstreet fan.  The only time I missed a concert since 1999 was last year when I was pregnant with Markus and couldn't travel all the way to Atlantic City to see them due to my sheer size.  Anyway, last night I had a dream about one of my favorite BSB fanfics from back in the day.  I actually managed to print out a copy of it before it was taken down from its website (YEARS AGO), but it's gotten me remembering a bunch of the old stuff I used to read.  A couple of stories really made an impact or were so interesting I still remember them and would love to reread, so I went looking.  

I was so sad that many, ok most, of the old sites are gone.  Every once in a while, I get nostalgic about the old days of BSB fandom, when all we could do was sit on message boards and talk about them, and collect pictures, and search for random bits of unreleased songs.  All in the days before Google made it easy.  I really miss those days.

Anyway, I think what I'm going to do is start saving any fic I read online that I love.  I hate that many authors choose to completely remove their fic from the internet when they're done with the fandom.  I've never understood it.  I also can't contact these authors (I've tried; their email addresses are no longer valid). 

I'm wondering, did anyone ever read Bobbi's Ta'Oth Trilogy back in the day?  Anyone got a copy somewhere?  I thought that was a great sci-fi BSB fic.  Can't find it anywhere.

Ok, that was my cheesiness for the day.  You may return to your regularly scheduled activities now!  Thanks much!

ETA: Never mind.  Found what I was looking for!

Yes, I'm partying like it's 1999 - the Backstreet Boys have released their 7th studio album, and I have it!  I got it shortly after 8 this morning, after standing on line a mere 2 hours outside the Virgin Megastore in Times Square.  First 500 fans to buy the CD got a wristband to the album signing.  My sisters had been there all night and saved me a spot. 

Tonight, after 10 years of fandom, I am going to meet the Backstreet Boys!  OMG.  I feel like I'm 12.  LOL.  Even though I became a fan shortly before my 18th birthday and was definitely not alone in my age group on that line, I feel giddy as a 12 year old with a crush.

Squee!



Kevin was my favorite Backstreet Boy, but as you can see, they're leaving his spot open for when/if he's ready to come back.

not again!

Now it's Nick's turn to do a stint in rehab. My question is this: he was caught drunk driving (interactions with prescription medicine nothwithstanding) and he is sentenced to three months of rehab? AJ had a much deeper problem 4 years ago, and homeboy only checked in for 28 days!

And not to be selfish or anything, but I paid good money for my Radio City tickets! Eeep!!
