Although I have been a Star Wars fan for a very long time, the first Star Wars convention that I ever attended was Star Wars Celebration V. My ultra-passionate fan status was, once and for all, confirmed for all time. My fandom reached a new level that I believe is only attainable by communing with other Star Wars fans.
During this public orgy of all things Star Wars, I did notice that there are many more fans who relate to the dark side and the Sith than I had ever imagined and I have always been curious about this choice.
