Oh this is the plight of every fan of geek culture, alternative entertainment, and underground music. YOU discovered it, but you want to share it. But you don’t want everyone to have it because you love the power of owning it.
…when in actuality you own nothing and you discovered nothing. You just happened to read it before your friends. A lot of other actual professionals discovered whatever it is you think you own long before you did. How else do you think you were able to experience it in tangible form.
For the record, I bought A Game of Thrones before I even knew about the HBO series, and finished the book months before the the first episode. So yeah, we’re even.
