I come from the very old-school fandom ways of mailing fanzines to each other [Archie universe fanfic in fact- I'm so embarrassed, but come on!) (and black and white photocopies of hand drawn fan art. Getting used to online fandom has been interesting. I was active online for a little while years ago in the early nineties when my only computer access was the computers at the university! Wow are things different and spread out!

LJ and DW seem to be a good place to base things from and to make a link list. (I also have started a delicious bookmark list.) When I search for stories, livejournal seems to pop up a lot. I am relatively new to looking or reading most of these pairings, but I have read some low-rated gen fic before. My access has been limited to public computers/work laptops prior to this, and that is not exactly comfortable for reading higher rated fic if you know what I mean!

 if anyone happens to stop by, I am looking to find:

BBC Merlin fic (and episode discussion== gen-fic and the pairings of Arthur/Merlin, Merlin/Morgana

Harry Potter books and movies fic (and discussion)== gen fic about Dumbledore's childhood and the trio, pairings of Harry/Ron, Harry/Draco, Ron/Draco, Ron/Hermione (not quite sure I can read Harry/Hermione yet, but I'm willing to try if Ron isn't evil) any Luna or Neville pairing because they are adorable. Not really interested in the Marauder generation, but I'm willing to be swayed!

USA network's Psych- Shawn/Lassiter I really hope this exists. I haven't searched yet.

USA's Leverage- I am fascinated by seeing Nate fleshed out, so I'd be willing to read any pairing or gen about him.

Dragonball universe- I am starting to learn that anime fandoms are an entirely different thing! I am looking for fanart and fan fiction about Goku x Vegeta -(unless Goku is listed under Kakarott ).  I am still trying to find my way to the fic and art because there's no way these two haven't become a pairing in that fandom! 

Stargate SG1== newer fandom for me with many likable characters.  Gen-fic about single characters and team fic (any team, though I'm not as fond of Jonas).  Fic about Teal'c, Vala, or Jonas (or post ascension!Daniel adjusting to Earth sounds fun!   Any Daniel pairing, especially Jack/Daniel and perhaps Daniel pairings with Atlantis characters.  (Daniel/Elizabeth sounds interesting.)  I don't know what the big pairs or rare-pairs are other than Jack/Daniel and Jack/Sam being bigger pairings from what I've seen!)  Oh, now that I wrote the NCIS one, I'm just thinking Sam/Janet could be good too! 

Star Trek TOS=   I used to read the old Trek novels when I was younger and all I kept thinking was that it was missing something.  Clearly, they were missing Kirk and Spock or Kirk, Spock, and McCoy getting their funk on!  So looking for Kirk/Spock will be on the agenda.  I have read some years ago.  

Smallville-  I am hesitant to read in this series yet, but I have read some Clark/Lex in the past.  I am an old Supes comic fan and haven't ventured into any fanfic for him yet.  I think Clark/ various Justice League members could be interesting if I could actually read it. 

NCIS=  Another series where I enjoy many of the characters!  Gibbs/Tony drew me in right away.  I have read some in this pairing, but not much.  McGee and Abby seem cute, not sure of other combinations yet.  (And I may be drawn to Abby/Ziva - I don't often find a F/F pairing I like because female characters often get the shaft in the source.)  

More TBA as my brain kicks in or I am intrigued by something!

Ah, you'll be set with my Merlin, Stargate, NCIS, and Smallville recs pages! (There are/were amazing Clark/Lex writers in Smallville—I do recommend checking out the fic.)

Fair warning that my Harry Potter recs pages are mostly Snape/Harry, but there are Draco/Harry and other miscellaneous fics—all pairings marked on the recs.

In Psych I'm afraid I'm more of a Shawn/Gus girl, but one of my favorite fic writers, Jane Davitt, writes Shawn/Lassiter: http://janedavitt.dreamwidth.org/tag/shawn/lassiter. You can probably follow the people who comment on her fic and see what comms they subscribe to to find more.

[livejournal.com profile] crack_van is a source for sets of recs from a variety of fandoms, and each fandom represented should also have a pimping post with resources for finding good fic.

That should keep you busy, oh, for the next several years. ;-) Feel free to ask if you have questions about DW/LJ/online fic!

Anyone played by Alan Rickman cannot be chaste to me. :D Try the recs on my pages with pink hearts if you want to dip your toes in—those are my very favorites.

And for the sake of your eyeballs—nay, your very soul!—don't venture into fanfic without a recs list! Once you've waded in a bit, you can see who the writers are you like, what other fandoms they've written in, who they chat with in comments who are also writers, who the good reccers are in the fandom. Look for rec and ficfinder communities for the fandoms that the good writers subscribe to ... You really, really will have years of reading to do. (Oh, I envy you reading the good fic for the first time! :D)
