Fandom is my Fandom
Here's a buncha Fandom Meta that I love and/or intend to read
- The Bodies of the Girls Who Made Me: Fanfic and the Modern World by Seanan McGuire
- Fan is a tool-using animal by Maciej Ceglowski
- On how to reconcile your love of a work being authored by asshole and/or bigoted authors by fiction-is-not-reality2 on tumblr (tumblr since deleted; link to archive.org)
- yes, you are allowed by shinelikethunder
- the best defense of RPF: anon: are you saying it's normal to ship real actual people and not just characters?
- This venhedish tumblr exchange about how romance and gencest and all other genres are not lesser than others. Slightly related, an analysis of incest in fiction by the inimitable olderthannetfic / franzeska
- Whoa look at all this meta
- Support for Dreamwidth
- visit https://fozmeadows.tumblr.com/fanthoughts
- should read this this at some point!
This is a list of features I wish AO3 had natively, or that I wish I could make, or I'm hoping a dev could create one day.
I'd love to...
1) Be able to bulk download all my bookmarked fics. Right now the most I (or anyone, I think) can d/l at once (at least on AO3) is 20 fics at a time bc AO3's bookmark listings are 20 stories per page, and using Calibre+FFF, I'm "downloading by web page."
2) Have two separate "Any Field" fields in the works search page. This is so I can search for "AU 1" or "AU 2" which features "Pairing 1" or "Pairing 2." Because right now there is no way you can do this (I've tried many times). This makes it so that in one search results page, I can get either android AUs *or* dragon AUs (*or* as many other AUs as I like) that feature my ship 1 *or* ship 2 *or* 3) Subscribe to get an email alert for *only* when the last chapter/last chapter is posted.
3) Subscribe to get an email alert for *only* when the last chapter/last chapter is posted.
