10. Who's your favorite fanfic writer?


There are SO many writers I could list here, but I'd have to say Xanthe is my overall favorite. I discovered her writing back when I first started reading fanfic. She has a TON of lengthy X-Files fics and she's one of those writers I'll still check on to see if she's written anything new. I'd read pretty much any fandom she wrote in just because it's her writing.

In fact Xanthe is the reason I started reading NCIS fic. I had never seen the show when Andy was posted. I read it, wanted to find out more about the characters, so I watched a few episodes and really liked them. I haven't watched the whole series, but enough to enjoy fanfic for it. Since then I've read quite a bit of NCIS fic.

There are plenty of other writers I could list, but it would be along the same lines. If they can write long fics that keep me interested beginning to end and write so well that I'd rather stay up for days than stop reading? Then they're put on my list of must-stalk.

I like shorter fic too, and I have a very wide range of tastes, so not much is ruled out, but when I can really sink my teeth into something, that's my favorite.

2. First ever fandom/fic/pairing?



Years ago I was curious about the world of Stargate, so I went online to see if there were others who liked it and stumbled upon fanfiction at an SG1 forum. There was this guy who wrote amazing SG1 fanfic (I can't remember his name and he wrote long, plotty, gen fics), but because of a thread there where people were bashing slash fic (which this guy didn't write, but didn't bash and ended up defending), I became curious about what slash fic was. I hadn't read a ton of gen fic yet, but enough to realize I loved fanfic.

Anyway, searching for slash fic opened up a whole world to me because what I'd been doing with characters in my head for years, other people were doing the same and posting it! I read A LOT of SG1 slash fic and as much femmeslash as I could get my hands on. My favorite pairing was Jack/Daniel, but I really liked Janet paired with OFCs or Sam. I'm not a huge Sam fan, but it was worth it when she was paired with Janet. There were a few Daniel/Janet fics I really liked too.

From there I started branching out to see if other shows were involved in this wonderful world of fanfic. I believe my next fandom was either X-Files or Star Trek, but I focused a little more on X-Files, both of which I still read.

April 1, 2015: Day One
1. What are your all-time favorite fandoms?


There are a lot of shows I’ve liked watching over the years, but when it comes to fandoms that I’m active in, that includes Angel the Series/Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dark Angel, Sentinel, Sherlock, Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate Atlantis, Supernatural, and X-Files.

Supernatural is the bulk of what I read and write these days, but I also read quite a bit of AtS/BtVS, Stargate Atlantis, and X-Files. Tomorrow I’ll be writing about how I got into fandom and fanfiction, but suffice to say I also read quite a bit of Stargate SG1 at first.

I really like fusions and crossovers, my favorites being Sentinel, Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, and Highlander, though I don’t read a lot of those original ‘verses.

I watched the X-Files as it aired, enjoyed the whole thing and the movies. I still love to read X-Files fanfic, though there are quite a few websites that are no longer up and running.

I'm going to give some of my recs, though I'd ask you keep in mind that I tend to like really dark fics, and a few of the authors I'm reccing write a lot of domestic discipline fic.

Some of my favorite authors (I'd rec anything of theirs):
Mort (personal site is down, but can be Wayback'd, and you can also find some fic at FHSArchive
Lorelei
Diana Williams
Xanthe
Mik
Kassandra (personal site is down, but can be Wayback'd)

Rec and Link Lists:
LilyCharlotte's Recs
Epic Recs
ScarletFBL's Links
Kinkygrrl's Links
xphilefic Specialized Archive Links
Enigmatic Dr.'s Fanfic Favorites

Archives:
Even though it may seem overwhelming, a great place to go for fic that has some great search features is Down in the Basement. The site is HUGE, but I've spent plenty of time wandering around on this site!
