so in a fandom, there are always a few pairings that everyone latches onto and that never die. this isn’t necessarily bad, but it does OFTEN overpower all of the other, less popular contributions that fans make
for example, these are the ships most often represented in the big bang signups:
- harry/louis: 73
- zayn/liam: 12
- zayn/niall: 9
- ot5: 7
- liam/louis: 6
- EVERY other ship has less than 5 fics being written
i think that this means it’s time for a RARE PAIRING FICATHON. would anyone participate in this?
here are some rules that i think would be beneficial:
- obviously, any ship besides harry/louis
- hosted AFTER the traditional big bang
- a much smaller minimum word count than big bang (maybe 5-10k rather than 20k)
please send me a message or reply to this post if you’re interested! i want to see if anyone would would want to do something like this. i won’t be too bothered if not, but i think it could make for a great ficathon. obligatory question mark so people can respond: ?
am I sick from anxiety or am I actually physically ill? a memoir by me
am i lazy or horribly depressed: the sequel
does everyone hate me or am I just very insecure: the completion of the trilogy
