Fannish Post, of Interest to Few

...but I have no other venue, so I will say it here.

I've recently acquired a new fandom, and I've been plodding through the fic that's available. So far, the writing seems to range from atrocious to poor. It makes me really grateful for the many brilliant writers in fandoms such as the Gateverse, the Jossverse, or Jeeves and Wooster. I have taken them for granted, and now I regret it.

Which fandom? If I can't help you find some better stuff, maybe I'll be inspired to post at least a drabble or two for you...

Oh, it's Criminal Minds. No aliens or vampires. Totally not my usual thing, but it's got serial killers, so that's the appeal :)

Well, here's one link... http://archiveofourown.org/tags/Criminal%20Minds/works

The quality on that site tends to be pretty decent.

I usually write crossovers, but I can't decide whether it would be more fun to cross with Bones and have the characters from each series deride each other's methods (physical forensics vs. profiling), or do NCIS and have Garcia meet Abby Sciuto. It would really have to be some case to bring the BAU, the Jeffersonian, and NCIS *all* together...

Thanks for suggesting Archive of Our Own. You're right that the quality there tends to be better. I've started wading through their CM stuff, but so far the taint that seems to plague this fandom exists there, too. Sigh.

I have to admit, I'm not usually a big fan of crossovers, but I think a meeting between Garcia and Abby is a very charming notion.

Bones, I have no background in. I just have never been a big Boreanaz fan.

Can I just say I totally don't get the Jeeves and Wooster thing, even though everyone I know loves it? I think I must be missing some sort of Jeeves and Wooster-appreciating prions or something.

Huh. That is interesting. Is it the books or the show you don't find appealing? Or both?

Both. I just find it...boring and unfunny. Yet people who like many of the same things I like love it. *shrug*

I also hate Mr. Bean. Like, HATE.

Wow, even Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry can't save it for you? Well, to each her own.

Now, I'm with you on Mr. Bean, although I must say I don't see a connection. Mr. Bean is, like, lowest common denominator. I am so ashamed of Rowan Atkinson.

I think of them both as "British things I don't get". Along with black pudding. >_<

I wish I had anywhere to point you, but I don't. But congratulations on the new fandom!

Thanks. I think it's just a passing thing, but it's fun for now.
