I love the creativity of fandom. And I really admire those individuals who put together such lovely things to be enjoyed by the rest of us. However, there are only a few fandoms in which I really go in search of those things. D&DC was my first, and I'll probably never stray far from it. I also practically devour anything related to Spike and Buffy.
There are other fandoms which, while I love them, I don't feel the need to hunt down fanfic, vids or other creative endeavors to extend my enjoyment. For example, BSG is currently one of my favorite shows, but I just don't have the desire to seek out fan-created works. The same goes for fandoms such as Lost, LotR, Harry Potter, etc.
Firefly used to be among them. However, since seeing the film last weekend, I seem to have had a major change of heart. (Not only did I write my first FF story [/shameless plug]
, but I've been reading a lot as well.)
Beneath the cut are several things that I've recently discovered which - for those of you with the interest - are definitely worth checking out. (I've cut this because some of the recs include fairly large spoilers
. If you haven't seen it yet, come back later. Trust me, not knowing is *way* more enjoyable.)( Firefly Recs [with spoilers for Serenity] )
So my request: I'm relatively new to the seek-and-devour aspect of Firefly fandom (mainly in terms of fic), although I have read a few very good stories over time. (Specifically, I remember evil_overlord
rec'ing some very good ones a while back.) I know about some of the larger official sites, but some of them require membership and I'm not interested in joining a *whole* site to access good fic, vids, etc. If there are other worthwhile places to visit (archives or websites), I'd love to be made aware of them.
It's pretty easy to search the Buffyverse for great stuff, but I've found Firefly to be a bit more difficult to come by. Or, I may simply not know where to go to look. Therefore, can anyone suggest some good fic archives, specific stories, or vidders to me? While I'm especially fond of action set after or around Serenity
, it's early for that yet and there may not be as large a variety as there probably will be.
Any suggestions would be lovely!
