Subject: [I] My very last filk ?

Having been around lurking and posting here, I think IIRC since about 6 months aftre the group was set up, it comes as a sad day when I have to think about retirement.

I fear my behaviour recently has not been up to the standard expected of aquaintances hereabouts in this amazing (dare I say it) institution that the group and its associated on and offline activities have become over these years.

One last (?) wish is that for those lucky enough to be going to ccde2000 do have a great time

Anyway I'll let the filk speak for itselt (any resemblance to folk alive or dead is, as always, coincidental :-) )

Is this a real life ?
No, its just A F P
Caught in this fandom
No escape to reality
Open those books
Note all of the ooks, and sigh
I'm just a poor fan, I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go
Never high, always low
Anywhere the meet is, always seems to matter to me, to me

On ng, just flamed a post,
No tag against the head
Another newbie, now they're dead
Oh dear, they had just begun
But now I've gone and frightened them away
Afpers, oooh
Didn't mean to upset yo'll
If I'm not back online this time tomorrow
carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come
Spending too much time online
Where's that life that once was mine
Goodbye everybody - I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face real life

A F P, oooh (anywhere the meets are)
I don't want to go
I sometimes wish I never had lurked at all

I see a little figure of a fan
Discworld, Discworld, whens the next signing
Adelphi,Sashas, Clarecraft .. very very frightening me
Vetinari, Vetinari
Vetinari, Vetinari,
Vetinari, Vimes & co .. magnifico

But I'm just a poor fan and nobody loves me
He's just a poor fan stuck inside a f p
Spare him his life from Discworld odyssey
Easy come easy go - will you let me go
As with Imp No - we will not let you go - let him go
As with Imp We will not let you go - let him go
As with Imp We will not let you go - let me go
Will not let you go - let me go (never)
Never let you go - let me go

No, no, no, no, no, no, no -
Oh A F P, A F P, A F P, let me go
That Elton has a figure put aside for me
for me
for me

So you think you can flame me and kick me offline
So you think you can shun me and leave me, thats fine
Oh fandom, can't do this to me fandom
Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Nothing really matters
Not on afp
Nothing really matters, but sometimes afpers mattered to me

Anywhere the meets are

.........carrier (bag) lost with valuable first edition in .. if found auction for charity ;-)

a farewell hug
