    Fanfiction Recs

    I already asked Seika's permission to do so, but I keep going back and forth about whether or not I should bother. Would any of you actually utilize it if I cleaned up and revamped this: http://forums.nrvnqsr.com/showthread...-Updates-never ?

    That's the poll question.

    I also wondered if any of you would be remotely interested in some kind of ongoing challenge to get you motivated to write. I hate that fanfic is so slow and that we don't engage each other well anymore. Bring back Old Internet etiquette. That part anyway.

    Poll is set to run for 30 days, so actually use your words / mouse.

    Probably. While I'm not quite as active in fics as I was before, there are still a bunch more fics I'd want to recommend but didn't really bother because the other thread died.

    The Dollkeeper: A Fate side-story. The memoirs of the last tuner of the Einzberns. A record of the end of a family.
    Overcount 2030: Extra x Notes. A girl with no memories is found by a nameless soldier, and wakes up to a world of war.

    I'm not a super active random reader, either, but I like it when there is actually some kind of community around it. That was why I suggested a sort of Challenge thing, too.

    I certainly would enjoy using it and recommending any new fics.

    I'm not good at finding new fics, but if someone else recommended it, I'd probably throw in my two cents on it. Right now all end up doing is looking down TvTropes Fanfic Recs list every few months to find new things.

    Anyone have thoughts on actually producing fic per the Challenge idea floated? But I'm gathering that people maaay be interested in the fic rec thing so keep voting as you like.

    The challenge idea seems interesting, but how exactly would it work?
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan in the distant past.

    Well it could be a number of things, but the point is trying to create some communal incentive / promoting fic production that doesn't have to be of intensely high inspiration.

    I guess I've decided to work on making a new Fanfic Rec thread. Is there anything about the old one that you definitely want to keep or that could have worked better? Since, if I am successful, it'll be my baby I kind of have to go with what will work for me, but I would like to know what you guys want / would use.

    I definitely would like to encourage more active use of this fanfic forum, and I am thinking of a challenge thing but ironing out the details in my mind. However, I would also like to make sure that the fic rec thread is open to both off-site and on-site fic. I think it already pretty much is, but I'm reiterating that in case there's something that would make that work better for you.

    Perhaps you could preserve the old recs on Kyte's first posts in that thread? I don't think they're up-to-date, though.

    Though that might clash with it being something which works for you.

    It would probably be easier for you to just use all the fics on the old list , since they'd just get re-rec'd anyways. Or at least that's what I thought until I actually took a look back there and saw all the one person recommendations on years dead stories. The Porn section and Short fics at least tend to be pretty well regarded. The most consensus seems to be from the Anti-rec section, which isn't really surprising, but I don't know if you'd want a place for people to rage against trash on your version.

    If you have the time I'd also say to keep the links to the positive reviews, to showcase why the fic is there. The negatives too, for the dissenting opinions. Or at least those that arn't just one line of "good story, good action".

    I plan to at least preserve and update the old list. I wondered if the +1 / -1 system worked for you guys. The de rec thing is only for fics previously recced right?

    Except for that last list where In Flight, From Fake Dreams and others of their ilk are. I don't think they had a single positive review.

    The +1/-1 system works well. So I would certainly keep it if I were you.

    I think Hill of Swords might've had some good review in the beginning.

    IIRC some of the ones on the Negative List (Specifically In Flight and FFD) started off with a bunch of Positive reviews that got either retracted or inverted into disrecs as the stories progressed, yes.

    +1s without proper reviews or articulated reasons, however short, for the recommendations should be done away with, if only to encourage that minimum of input on a work that one has enjoyed.
    Fanfiction, on occasion.

    The Blue-Blooded League
    When the Queen's away, the pawns will play. A Lord El-Melloi II Case File.

    /Ep.in lost dream.
    Decoration Disorder Disconnection. Ishizue Arika and Mato Touma. An episode from a hypothetical future.

    Pseudepigrapha
    Snapshots from the world on the eve of the Third Crusade. A Tuitio Mysterii et Obsequium Reliquiarium prequel.

    I guess "initial review may not be negative" is a good rule of thumb. If something ends up in the negative after a while that's probably fine, but I don't want to make a thing where dog-piling is really easy?

    I agree that there should be some kind of bare minimum writing thing other than a +1 because one of the things that, I think, inhibits positive fandom participation these days is people's lack of communication about things they actually like.

    This makes sense. Asking a reviewer to accompany their +1 with a few sentences isn't an onerous requirement.

    One other change I'd like to see is increased visibility for contest-winning and runner-up stories. Top entries don't get their own threads in the fanfic forum unless the author makes one, so it's already easy for new users/lurkers to miss these excellent fics.
    Perhaps the 3 stories with the most votes in each contest could be included in the rec list with an excerpt from the judging thread serving as a review. This could be done retroactively.
