I need to stop posting just to share lindorie
's amazing icons >.>
SO I SHALL TALK ABOUT FANFICTION IN ADDITION TO STARING AT THIS AMAZING THING THAT HAS BEEN ADDED TO MY LIFE.
I've been wanting to do a post for a while - a post that would become a sticky - describing all the different places you can find me and find my shit online. Like my fic, or my really stupid Tumblr, or whatnot. part of this is the current migration; I definitely want to keep friends as they move to DW. (I use DW primarily, although I don't have any plans to stop crossposting at this point in time.)
But part of this is my fanfiction. And I really need to figure out what I am doing with it.
I have brokenprism
, where I posted pretty regularly and religiously for three or four years. Stuff is tagged fairly well. It isn't impossible to find shit there. And a lot of it is smaller, drabble-type stuff, short pieces that are -- I'm not saying they're not good, but Livejournal is the kind of place for posting them. They're snack-fic. I don't know.
But then AO3 came along, and I started posting there, and ...it isn't perfect, no, but I do like it a lot. I like freeform tagging, and I like that they've kept comment-threading (even if it can confuse comments/reviews with WE JUST HAD A 12-COMMENT CONVERSATION), and I like kudos, a lot. I like being able to have series works. And I'm writing more chaptered stuff now. I see myself using AO3 for a while.
But -- there are audiences on LJ that aren't on AO3 (not that... I really... care a TON about comments, but, I like meeting people through fic and comments/feedback is always nice). AND, now, DW is soon opening up community importing. I also have brokenprism
on DW, but I've done absolute nothing with it.
So now I am like, what the fuck do I do with all my writing?
I'm not really sure I want to import EVERY THING I WROTE ON LJ into AO3. Or if I did, it would be in a different way -- I had a claim of 100 themes on Rydia, and I was up in like the 30s or 40s, and many of them are tiny little things; I don't really want to storm the Final Fantasy IV section with 37 fics of Rydia all of which are 248 words long.
I'd have to make it a chaptered fic, or something, and I'm not sure that's worth doing.
But I'm also really the fuck behind
on posting things into brokenprism
. The last set of things I've written, like for DOINK or Chocobo Races or for other gifts, or whatever, haven't made it in there; none of the Gundam Wing shameporn made it in there; I really need to crosspost it all and catch it up. IF I plan on keeping BP/LJ as a fic archive. And if I do, I should probably make BP/DW an archive too, simply as more fandom moves to DW and also because DW allows longer entries and longer comments and ACTUAL COMMENT HEADERS and it isn't LJ.
(does anybody know -- can I set crossposting options somewhere for communities? So that like... if I post something AS seventhe TO BP/DW, it will crosspost AS first_seventhe into BP/LJ? Or is this totally wishful thinking
So somebody dictate my archival life kthx
