New Fandom Project Pimp  


So I realize that I'm totally insane in undertaking this. Like I don't already have enough on my plate, right? But when have you guys ever known me not to be spinning plates like a vaudeville act? I just hope they don't come crashing down.

Even if you aren't a fan of C/A, if you want, come support my fandom project. I'm posting my observations every day, blogging about this ala Julie & Julia. It's usually only one post a day, promise. :)

Thank you, bb. And if you like it, well tell your friends. Word of mouth is what is going to keep the project going. I'm gonna need cheerleaders. LOL

Haha! Of course, I'll tell my friends. ;) (man, if only Charisma could cheer for you too *sigh* )

Cool! I've read practically no C/A; I wasn't even sure where to find the stuff. I'm really interested to check out your recs. :)

If you want a list that won't be as comphrensive and give you a great place to start, I did a HUGE rec post that other people contributed to in the comments. Great place to start for amazing C/A fic.

Go for it. I took the idea from Julie and Julia and the Broke Diaries. So it's been around for a long time. Have fun with it! :)

yay!! thanks so much! i just thought i should ask first. i doubt that i'll be able to do it because i'm such a spaz but i can try ...
gigi_tastic: joy!gigi_tastic on May 13th, 2010 03:41 am (UTC)
may i ask how your choosing fic to read for your project? i cant deiced how to do it for mine....

The C/A board Stranger Things has a fic archive called Just Fic. They have stories arranged by author and by title. I went by title, started at the numbers and went from there.

I would say pick an archive you like and just do it systematically. :)

thanks!! I decided to do the entire buffyvers so i think i will work with more then one archive. I dont have a set list of how many fics I want to read. instead I will be reading different kinds of fic like drabbles one shots etc. i havent worked it all out yet. but i think i may do something similar to what still grrr does. assign myself people and do sort of a week or to based on that... I'll figure it out. I'm super excited to read your findings though!

This is an excellent idea! I love it! :)

It's been a while since I read any fanfic, and back when I was a fic reading fiend, I never could locate any good C/A. I look forward to reading your reviews and getting good recs !
Kelly: C/A Antidrugxlivvielockex on May 13th, 2010 03:49 am (UTC)
That was my problem too. I came into the fandom when most of the fic writers were long gone. You see nearly 2000 stories, it's intimidating. And there were no really comphrensive lists for C/A fic. So viola! I figured I'd do it. LOL
