LJ recently moved it's servers to Russia and changed it's Terms of Service. There's an article on Gizmodo here and on another site here. I've had some people ask if we are going to move the Comm to another site. At the moment, no we don't. But I wanted to get opinions on the matter.

There is a certain kind of writer who attaches no value to their own work on an emotional level. They write for attention. It’s the same kind of “writer” who dreams of writing a book so they’d be rich and famous. This is also the kind of “writer” who wants to write a book about their life because apparently, we ALL want to read about it and just don’t know it. This attention-seeking writer actually taints the fandom, and readers, with their pathological need for attention. They encourage readers to offer them suggestions for future plot developments, character arcs, and even pairings. Then when they write themselves into a hole because of they actually listened to all the crap they get back—they blame their “muse” for not being inspired to complete the story.

Of course, the worse part of an attention-seeking writer are the readers they leave in their wake who feel entitled to intrude on the process of other writers because they felt validated by a previous experience. They are utterly comfortable providing a list of wishes and wants to other writers in their feedback. If they want a certain pairing in a story—they demand it and will abuse a writer if they don’t get it.

I’ve said before that reader entitlement is the ugliest part of fandom. I’ve been threatened with rape and murder for not updating when a reader felt I should. There have been times when readers have essentially had screaming fits on my contact form or in an email because I didn’t write the pairing they wanted or I chose a Stargate project over a Harry Potter one for Rough Trade.

Some readers take my decisions regarding my own writing as a personal insult and have no problems letting me know that I’m ruining their life by not writing what they want me to write.

Recently, I had a reader send me a single sentence email, and it was:

“I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, I hope you finish Phoenix before I die.”

At first, I was outraged, but I wasn’t particularly surprised since I’ve seen this kind of emotional blackmail in fandom before. I deleted the email without a response, and I put the sender on a filter in my email that automatically trashes any email she sends me in the future. Because I want no part of her bullshit but I do wonder how many other writers she’s approached with this disgusting tactic.

Those who only read in fandom don’t genuinely understand the creative process. They don’t understand the intimacy of writing or the emotional risk of posting it in public. They never will understand, really, and investing yourself in trying to make them is just intellectual masochism.
Hello, all! I am searching for a specific Dean/Castiel (Destiel) Fic. This Fic is Non-AU and there is a lot of Angst/Comfort.

In this Fic: Dean and Cas are vacationing in a beach(?) house (I think) or possibly another house. The house doesn't have a TV or anything I believe and Dean repairs things around the house during the Fic (he also does so to avoid talking about his feelings).

They are taking a vacation due to the last hunt they went on going wrong. Dean was beggining to have panic/anxiety attacks and Cas and Sam think that him taking a break would help him with his anxiety.

Dean and Cas speak to Sam via Phone Call until he visits them once during this Fic.

They don't hunt for a while but once Dean and Cas return to the Bunker, Dean, Cas and Sam begin to Hunt again. Everything is okay until Cas and/or Sam is almost killed during a hunt. Dean begins struggling with his anxiety once again and they (Dean and Cas ) stop hunting for good and return to their vacation home for a while so Dean can heal.

I read this Fic on Archive Our Own (AO3.) and sadly this is all I can remember.

Thank you in advance!
Hi :)
I am looking for a fanfiction which was posted on archieveofourown.org, as far as I remember. It is about Sam who runs away from Dean and into a forest where he tries to kill himself with a knife.
Cas and Dean look for him but can't find him until it's too late.
When Cas finally finds Sam on a clearing he is already dead but he gets brought back to life by Lucifer...
That's all I can remember.
I hope anyone can help me :)
Hi, I am looking for two fics that have been taken down online.

One is Fucking Kodiak Alaska by Xenodike. It was just removed and notice was given to let people download it, but I had just barely missed the deadline when I went back to re-read it! It's one of my faves so would really appreciate a copy. Epub would be my preferred format but I'd happily take any.

The other is a fic by flawedamethyst. It looks like their LiveJournal was recently deleted and most fic moved to AO3 but not this one. I THINK it was called Extraterrestrial, or something similar, and was a wincest fic set in space.

Thanks for your help!

Does anyone know of any stories where Dean is John's favorite and maybe it gets revealed somehow and Sam feels hurt.
Thanks :)
Hi,

Im looking for a specifc J2 fic where theyre in college together and in a relationship. Jensen wants to come out but Jared is afraid to. They havr a fight about it in a bar where Jared storms off. Some guys overhear the argument and attack Jensen. He ends up being very hurt and Jared hears about the attack on the news.

Jensen eventually recovers but now he is afraid to be public with their relationship when Jared has a change of heart.

Cant remember how it ends but if you know it, please tell me! I can't find it in my tags.
There was a story I read a long time ago where Jared moved into a house and realized a ghost was haunting him. I think Jensen was a paranormal investigator. All I remember from the story is that the ghost haunting Jared killed a man that was trying to break in. Also, I think the ghost attacked Jensen because it didn't like him being close to Jared. Lastly, I think the ghost was found out to be a girl from Jared's child hood who died in Jared's arms.

Link in comments.
Hiya,

I've been trying to find this fic again for ages, but coming up blank. Does anyone have a copy they could send me? Its one of my favourites, and I'm going into hospital for surgery and trying to download my favourite fics to read while i recover. It would be very much appreciated.

My email is: dawchi4@aol.com

Cheers for the help.

I read this fic a long time ago that was set soon after Mary died. John was very drunk and Dean enters the room. He yells at Dean about how upset he is that Mary died and, when Dean starts getting scared and crying, he yells him to stop crying. It's from John's POV and he's thinking that he should really stop yelling at Dean, but he keeps going.

Any other fics that have little Dean dealing with upset or drunk John would also be appreciated. Thanks for any recs!

I was hoping you guys would be able to help me find a fic I read a few years ago.

It was an spn/American Idol crossover, set in a world where the supernatural isn't real, and where Sam and Dean both sign up for American Idol. With several other spn chars participating as well.
And it turns out that Dean had to have John institutionalized because he became a threat to Sam.

Anyone know where to find it?
