This morning, I woke up to an email alerting me that the creator of the game retweeted a link to my story.
I realize that indie game developers feel very differently about fandom than most major publishers (although to be fair Bioware is clearly aware of its fandom and happy to encourage us, up to a point, and Squeenix seems to express, at worst, an indifferent tolerance, so I've never really been in a "must hide the children!!" fandom) but I still had a bit of an OMG THEY KNOW moment. Then I flailed for awhile. Then I made what I hope was a friendly and enthusiastic response.
Nothing like this has ever happened to me before, and I'm still not sure what to do with it, but one thing I do know: being part of the first steps of an emerging fandom sure is fun. :)
