Today’s post is by former lawyer and a published novelist, earlgreytea68, who started writing fic with a couple of friends around eight years ago, saying, “Sure, I guess I’ll give this a try!” That was, to measure it the way a writer does, a few million words ago. EGT has written babyfic in “Doctor Who,” “Sherlock,” and “Inception,” but she writes other sorts of fic, too. You can find it all on AO3 and hang out with her on Tumblr.
- New York magazine took the opportunity to point out what the release of a new Star Wars film really means and included some early numbers from AO3. “[I]f you have even passing knowledge of the internet you won’t be surprised to hear that hundreds of authors and illustrators in the fan-fiction community are already hard at work asking tough questions, like, ‘Yo, what if these two (or three) characters kissed?’ But in a Star Wars universe with at least four major new roles, the key question is: Who are we most excited to read about boning?”
