For the last few days/weeks I've been happily immersing myself into XMFC fandom and fic and luckily, the fandom is rather prolific. I just wish people wouldn't write great and engaging 30k to 50k word stories as a WIP in comment fic. I mean why? *bangs fists* That makes it so hard to keep up with them, to save them and re-read at leisure.

I don't consider myself an entitled reader with wanting to have a specific format or some such (okay, I do personally draw the line at 8 point font white on light-coloured background and no paragraphs whatsoever) but I like to read in one piece. Now I've painstakingly copied every part of the stories into word documents so I could do that. Sigh.

Oh boy, yes, the kinkmeme phenomenon... I have seen that in a number of fandoms now, and it's always trying.

Haven't read any XMFC fic yet.. is it the new boom fandom? D'you have recs...?

I don't know if it qualifies as boom fandom but then I'm not having much experience with movie fandoms in general. I'd say it has grown pretty fast.

As for recs, I put a few in the comments of this post. Mostly shorter fics but they are good for appetizers IMO. *g*

Are you done with spn completely or you just add more to the list of your fandoms?

Well, I mostly no longer read fic in SPN, let alone meta or review or all that. So you could say I'm really out of that fandom. If only Jensen quit, I could be out of that god-forsaken show as well. Sigh.

I didn't mean fics or metas (i don't read them myself) i meant discussions with friends or posting on boards. In other words i miss you *hugs*

I cannot cope with another fandom of WiPs or kinkmeme comment fics (134/145? Really?) so I'm staying on the AO3 XMFC page and not going anywhere else, no matter how tempting. *tries to convince self*

It's probably the most sensible course of action. I live in the hope that sooner or later every long fic ends up there.
