So [ profile] navaan encouraged me to do this although I have only a few stories up on the Archive. I still don’t have too many things up because I’m too lazy to go through my old fic :P, but that will make it interesting to see how this changes when I put up more.

1. Play (Tokyo Babylon, yuletide)
2. Distraction (Detective Conan, Fandom Stocking)
3. New Tomorrow (Arslan senki, Parallels)
4. Gut Instinct (Detective Conan, Girl saves Boy)
5. In Her Heart (Final Fantasy X, X-2)
6. Forward (Final Fantasy VII, Fandom stocking)
7. Counting On You (Hagaren, Fandom Stocking)
8. She'll never know (Final Fantasy VII)
9. More Than Meets The Eye (Arslan senki, Fandom Stocking)
10. Taking Care Of Him (Tokyo Babylon)

No surprises there really. ^^; Yuletide story is on top, followed by other gifts and the bigger fandoms and the few other things up there are just too obscure. *hehe*

Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms. Then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?

[ profile] navaan gave me Doctor Who, The Hunger Games and Jiraishin.

Ao3 commenting meme (2011)

I’ve stumbled over this A03 commenting meme.
I’ve recently noticed that I’m using the Archive a
lot for reading these days. I thought I should take it. And it
was fun. Probably a thing I should do at least once a year from now on!

Here it goes:

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is then to go to Archive of Our own, and...

1) Look up an old favourite and let the writer know that you still love the story.
2) Find a story in your favourite fandom that you haven't read, or for which you haven't remembered to leave feedback.
3) Cheer up a friend by leaving feedback to their fic.
4) Go to the random tags view, select an interesting tag, and see of you can find something you like. repeat as needed.
5) Visit an old fandom that you aren't active in anymore (or a pairings that you've lost interest in, etc.) and see if there's any new interesting fic or re-read an old favourite.
6) Read a story in a fandom in which you've never read fic before.
5) Pick a category that you don't usually read and read some fic there (if you usually read RPF, maybe try some comics fic, if you're an anime fan, read fic about your favourite play, etc.)
6) Check out the comment thread on LJ or on DW where people have left links to their AO3 accounts, and see you can find anything new or interesting (and leave a link to your own fic as well, if you archive your fic to AO3).
7) Leave feedback to a fic that doesn't have any yet.
8) Make a rec post in your journal with all the good fic you found while doing this meme, and then link that post to the comments here so that others can enjoy the recs as well (alternatively you can just list your recs in a comment here if you don't want to make a whole post, or maybe use the bookmarking feature on AO3 if you have an account).

This is a totally no-pressure thing. You don't have to do all of these or any of these, they are mostly just to inspire you to broaden your horizons and go and read some fic.

And while actual comments are preferred, just leaving kudos is fine too if you don't have the time or energy for comments - most important is to just leave some kind of sign of appreciation for the writers and share the love. Also, you can both comment and leave kudos at AO3 without logging on, so you can participate even if you don't have an account there.
