I don't know what it is (yeah I do), but I've become officially obsessed with Eerie Indiana.

This isn't the first time. I was pretty much obsessed with it when I was 9, and again when it re-aired when I was about 13. Growing up in a haunted house where weird stuff was always happening, having one or two close friends I could investigate with, and being a total outcast, I could relate to Marshall.

Well this is how it happened. 2 years ago I had to undergo an operation. You've heard stories of people waking up with Chinese accents or missing a chunk of their memory, well something weird happened to me too. I was in Europe, but I thought I was in the middle of the forest in my hometown (not in Europe). For about 2 weeks, I kept forgetting my age. I felt like I was 13 again. I caught myself stopping to watch people skateboard on the street, and all these old memories started flooding back to me: people's names at school that I hadn't thought of since I was about 15. I remembered Eerie Indiana. I desperately wanted to rewatch it.

So since then I've been pretty hooked. I rewatched it again in April, but it wasn't enough. I had never read fan fiction before, but I found myself desperately needing more of the Eerie universe.

Naively, I didn't know what slash fiction was. I'd never heard of slash before.

The first thing I read was this, by solarbaby614.
My first thought was "WHAT THE HELL IS THIS!? DASH AND MARSHALL? MADE GAY! HAHAH..."
Then I was totally silent for a few seconds. "I had never thought of this before", I thought.
Then I realised the brilliance of it. It was...hot.
And then I was totally hooked.
And I found God's very own gift to the Eerie Indiana fandom, chibimarchy's fanfiction masterpost. 
And so I read, and reread.

I figured the obsession would wear off after a few weeks, but no. And judging by the dates between the Eerie fics out there, I'm not alone. This appears to be a long-term, possibly life-long obsession. So I embrace my fate as a girl impossibly obsessed with Eerie Indiana (and Dash X in particular, big shocker there) and vow to continue watching, reading and writing the Eerie universe.
