Fandom Snowflake Challenge 2016 #8  
#8. Interact with someone new.

Yesterday, I posted a brief reply to the anonymous moderator of the brand-new [community profile] myoldfandom ficathon, which is gearing up for its first event. ("Old" = no new canon after 2005.) So far, it sounds like an update of oldschoolfic, which I enjoyed a lot. But I really know nothing at all about [community profile] myoldfandom or the people behind it (and I'm just a little nonplussed by the modly anonymity).

All my own dearest fanficly fandoms qualify, of course. FK, HL, YB, BSG78, D&DC. Probably even the Buffyverse qualifies, although the comics do purport to be canon. It's not that I don't watch and enjoy new series! I'm all over Agent Carter, Once Upon a Time, Person of Interest, Poldark, Call the Midwife, etc. I loved Forever while it lasted, and Grimm and Sleepy Hollow before they jumped their sharks. But of course they aren't — for better and for worse — the same as stories loved long and long and long.

I wonder whether [community profile] rarelywritten is planning a round this year. If so, I wonder whether the schedules will conflict or complement.

Ooo, thanks for mentioning this. I've been missing the oldschoolfic exchanges.

There were a lot of lovely things about ! Whether its absence has been a niche or an abyss, that space is definitely open for filling.
