Every now and then I get the urge to check mainstream social media to see if #fandom is still overrun by toxic teens...
That's why I'm here instead. Cos following that urge never ends well.
Ever write a particular rarepair or whatever and just marvel at the massive comment to hitcount ratio? Like, compared to the popular pairings?
Makes me want to write more, because while it gets massively less hits/kudos than the other ones, it makes people happy enough to comment, and that's awesome ❤️
So I've been pretty obsessively working on this prompt comm of mine over the last week. I've modded fic challenges before so I'm not flailing or anything, but I do have a tendency to waffle, longwind, and repeat myself, so I'm slowly tightening all the details. Also making an effort to ensure it's as easy as possible to run the thing.
Decided to compile a list of fic stuff to challenge myself with this year. Got a whole bunch of different ships to pull myself out of the two I usually go for, now I'm trying for a list of tropes.
For some reason challenging myself to write tropes I don't do much of is harder than the ships.
Making myself a #fandom wishlist because my old one is way way way out of date.
(probably more of a 'shit I like and shit I don't like' or 'OTPs and NoTPs' list, but whatever)
I'm checking out the profiles of people who have left me kudos.
There are some super awesome and interesting people in #fandom.
Kinda related to the read-it-later thing, but more for #fandom folks:
How in the hell does one work a 'mark to read later' list of LJ fic? With the 18+ click throughs and shit buggering up any attempt to save to an app its doing my head in.
