challenged me for this meme, and I really like this idea. Well done praevarus
for coming up with it! And it fit really well today, because a fic was posted for the Salt and Pepper fest at hp_goldenage
for one of my prompt, and it fit perfectly!
1. Find a fanwork that is different from what you normally read. This can be a new genre, pairing, kink, fandom, or even just an author you've never read anything by.
2. Enjoy and leave some comment love for the author/artist.
3. Report back in a post and challenge three other people to do the same.( Read more... )
One thing I've discovered by reading in another fandom is the amount of AU's that's there. It seems like 80% of the 1D fics out there are AUs. Like totally AUs, like Harry is the prince of England and Louis works for a group that handles pr crises (that one was quite good:P). I've never read in Merlin fandom, but from what I've seen it seems like AUs are a big thing there too. Why is that not more of a thing in Harry Potter? Not like Slytherin!Harry AUs, but Muggle AUs where they only keep their personalities and looks and relationships. From the top of my head I can only recall reading two, actually.
Okay, so tags:capitu
