Proper-Fans are the ideal kind of fan. They have their fandoms, and they deserve them. A Proper-Fan knows ample info about his fandom, and takes it seriously-but not too seriously. Proper-Fans can be created at any point in a fandoms history. For instance, a Lord of the Rings Proper-Fan can be created after he watches the movies, if he then proceeds to read the books, etc, and remained a fan after the hype died down. Proper-Fans handle remakes of their fandom relatively well, provided it doesn't completely destroy their beloved characters.
Beth became a Casual-Fan of Transformers after seeing the 2007 movie, and a Proper-Fan after the 2009. She researched the fandom, quickly latching onto Transformers G1. She bought the series, has the merchandise, and gets extremely irritated with the Psuedo-Fans who flaunt their wannabe-ism and really don't know what the heck they're talking about.
