(no subject)

OK, so I posted this in ff_fanfic, but thought I'd give it a try here, too:

OK, so just out of curiosity. Well, a lot of things 'just out of curiosity', and actually with an ulterior motive as opposed to 'just out of curiosity', but here it goes.

For my English final (go university and papers instead of tests!) I'm writing a paper on, basically, how fan fiction and fandoms have created communities of people on the internet, focusing on Joss Whedon's fandoms...

Anyways, if you're interested in helping me out (and it would be a big help) just answer the following? Please? Come on, guys. I get to write about JOSS WHEDON for my english final! I love college!

1. How many (and which) fandoms have you been part of?
2. Do you read/write fanfic, or both?
3. Would you be willing to let me use some of your work as a reference? If so, links would be very helpful...
4. How has the whole participant-in-fandom thing changed you/effected you...damn, can't think of anything that's not sappy...

Anyways, I'd love it if some of you could help me out...just comment here, or e-mail me at

Thanks so much!
