I just got my zine. It's an odd story, too. UPS was set to deliver it to my house, but I had class the first two times they stopped by, so I changed the delivery address to my work. The same day I did this, I got home from work and found the package tucked up underneath my welcome mat, thankfully untouched by my mother, to whom it was addressed, because I'd used her credit card to pay for it. But you all don't want to know about that.
So, for some background, I'd just like to explain that I fancy myself a fandom lurker. I've written fiction before, but I fear it's nothing akin to the likes of anything in Lotripping
, and I'm okay with that. If I had more time, I'd probably devote it towards the fandom, but I don't. I've never been a huge fan of slash, save for femslash, just because it wasn't ever that appealing to me. Despite this, though, when I was linked to the site through various people on my friends list, I knew that I had
to have this zine. I love everything about this fandom. How could you not, really?
The thing that is perhaps the most amazing thing about the zine is that talent of every single author in the thing. I've only had a chance to skim through it and read one or two stories, but, I'm in absolute awe of the writing abilities of everyone involved. Seriously. Bestseller fiction isn't as good as this stuff. I look forward to reading everyone's novels one day. Each of you is brilliant.
And for some specific praise, a bit to sparcck

:( Cut for possible spoilers...Collapse )
As I finish reading each fic, I hope to review each of them for all of you.
