I’ve been thinking, with a lot of sadness, what I need to make fandom a large part of my life again (I want to, but at this point don’t think I can). One answer is LJ/DW kinkmemes. People don’t seem to do that much these days, and in any case then and now it can only exist for big fandoms. Centrally Marvel/DC universes, which I don’t enjoy.

I miss browsing prompts, posting prompts, writing a fill for a prompt knowing that at least one person was going to be an enthusiastic reader… I thrived in that environment. Writing alone feels really sterile. I want to be an ecosystem again.

This seems like a long shot. But:

If you know of an active kinkmeme (it’s okay if it’s small, as long as it’s alive), for a fandom you think I’ll like – please let me know. Here are some of my preferences:

  • Ideally, there are a lot of writers who are good. Some fandoms are unusually and confusingly full of good writers, like The Terror. Others are relatively sparse.
  • I like dark fic where people are sad and have sex that’s at least slightly unhealthy. I’m not an obligate dead dove writer, but a fandom where such fic would break norms is not for me.
  • I prefer to read and write about characters who are at least mildly intellectual, or can be interpreted as such.


#fandom #signal boosts #anything that makes me laugh this much deserves a reblog #(luminousalicorn’s reply: ”*chanting ominously* glowfic. glowfic. glowfic. glowfic”) #((she *does* make a good point)) #glowfic #this post was queued because my to-reblog list is too long and I didn’t want to dump it on you all at once
