Now's the perfect time to join. Even if you've never participated and have no intention of doing so in 2009, you'll still get a daily post listing a bunch of fics from both this year and the previous ones, in fandoms you might not have even known you were looking for fic in.
Today's post has the following fandoms: Fringe, Shakespeare-Hamlet, RPF-West Wing, Hairspray-2007, MI5/Spooks, Mythology-Norse, Fairy Tales-Trad, Mythology-Greek and Roman, Ben 10 Universe, Futurama, Brideshead Revisited (TV), Live Free or Die Hard, Starman (TV), Merlin (UK) TV and Elecktra (Movie)
And if by October, you're thinking OMG-I have GOT to do this, that wouldn't be the worst thing in the world either.
A place to post your fic in smaller, or unloved fandoms. A place to pimp that yuletide fic that doesn't fit anywhere else. A place to post fanfic with adult themes where you don't have to do a detailed warning for every little kink or possible squick. Just rate your fic Green/Yellow/Red and trust that the readers can decide which level of fiction they're up for.
I'm a co-mod and we are definitely looking for diversity of fandoms represented as well as posters and members. Please consider joining and maybe re-posting some of your older fic if you feel it deserves another look and especially if it's one of the smaller fandoms and/or has adult themes.
torchwood_decaf and no_janto
Whatever you think of the pairing itself, you can't overlook the fact that every single Torchwood oriented fic comm that isn't dedicated an alternate pairing is essentially dominated by that one, making it extremely hard to find non J/I fic or for the fic to find an audience. Neither of these communities is a bashing forum. All they are is a safe haven for those seeking fic and wishing to post fic, fanart, vids etc that are not about the pairing. Slash and Het are both welcome.
ppth_support-The Unusual Suspects
This is my baby, a fic comm devoted to guest stars and supporting characters from House MD.
If you want to write about a patient of the week, one of their friends or family, or any other supporting character seen or mentioned on the show, this is the place.
We're about to start our second year and I'm about to start posting eligible character lists fo the 2nd season. Basically anyone who isn't House/Chase/Cameron/Wilson/Cuddy/Vogler/S
To end our first year, we had a small but festive party including fic about Annette Raines (the dominatrix from Love Hurts), John Henry Giles and Cora (patient and lady friend from DNR), Sister Mary Augustine from Damned If You Do, and a party playlist from Roger Spain (one of the unsuccessful applicants from Kids.)
We have a weekly drabble challenge and your more than welcome to post any fic about any Unusual Suspect through the first three season. (I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the Newbies.)
Question for the Teeming Millions:
2008 was the third year of the annual Come As You're Not Halloween fanfic party. I'm already considering what to wear for this years party, but I'm also wondering if the idea has run its course. We had a slightly smaller turn-out this year, but it was also just around the time of the election and all hell breaking loose in the US economy. Do you guys think it's worth doing again? I realize it's only January, but I live in San Francisco, where people do plan their real life costumes the day after Halloween. Obviously I'll be doing some temperature taking/polling as we get closer, but if anyone has some thoughts right now, go ahead and share them with me. PM or Email is fine, if you'd rather go under the radar.
