FanFic Author Appreciation and Sekrit Fandom Shames

I've had barely any time to read my FList this week because someone (we will not speak the name of this idiot *ptui*) overcommitted on the writing. *headdesk*

However, I've been seeing the Fanfic Authors Appreciation threads. Thank you to everyone who named me (sadly, I haven't really had time to comment when my name came up).

This puts me in a conundrum. I'm hard pressed to choose only a handful of writers that I like.

See? I have this same problem with music. People ask me my favorite band and I'm like, "Unh..." like a big ol' dork. My favorite band is generally decided by day, weather, latest genre of music catching my ear, what's playing on the store overhead that day, mood, color of the sky, weather...

You get the idea.

Fanfic, for me, is a lot like that. My favorite author of the day pretty much depends on what would amuse me that day. You'd be better off asking me who I think are the most overrated author(s), because I have a pretty clear list for that (none of whom are on my FList). But favorite author(s)? Watch my head explode.

And sometimes I wonder how I managed to not be in a clique in high school. I think the above says it all.

So, this is a general "thank you" to all the fic writers out there who put in time and effort to come up with creative story lines for characters that are intriguing and enchanting. For coming up with unusual (and possibly crackalicious) pairings. For giving me entertaining hours. And most importantly, for inspiring me to try my hand at it.

So, for the last day of FanFic Author Appreciation, a big ol' thank you to everyone on my FList for the fanfic.

Now, confession time...

*waits for mass defriending over the above rants*
