10:03 am - Exercises in WTF
Doctor Who - there is barely any new DW fic. Doomsday has broken it's mojo!!!!! There's not even bad fic to tide me over - just no fic.

What the what? Well, that's one person obviously trapped in an alternate universe.

And you know that fictional character hatememe? Guess what's got it's own LJ now.

Updated as I find more interesting WTFness

As I said, alternate universe. It's clearly the only explanation.

If you discount all the Doomsday fixits, maybe?

Um... she comments there isn't even any badfic.

That wins the WTF Oscars.

How do you keep finding the idiots? I'm pretty sure you're not a masochist, so I find it hard to believe you seek them out.

I flist-surf - I don't just read my own Friends List, but the flists of some of my friends. And then I follow links I find there, or read LJ entries of people who make interesting comments in comms and the like.

Wow, & I thought I was bad with my love of doing the random lj thing when bored. I've yet to look through the f-lists of friends (but not that you've planted the idea..)

Actually, it does feel like there's no new fic - I've hardly read any at all over the last few weeks, and normally there's loads of it. This is of course partly cos I'm not reading Doomsday fixits, and I don't tend to look at T&C, but I dunno, who_otp's been quiet, dwfiction's been quiet - the only thing I think I've read new (cos I'm always catching up) and enjoyed recently was some very hot Sarah Jane/Harry pieces, and that only works if you're into old skool.

Things do tend to quiet down after the end of a series (leaving aside fixits, the typical); hopefully it'll pick up again soon.

Well, I haven't been reading much fic lately, but I am not denying that there is any. And there certainly isn't a lacking of badfic.

Now, if one were to argue there are no new ideas...

Huh. Well, fandom can be cyclic. (Spelling? I don't know.) Three or four people posted Romana fics a couple of weeks ago, and now it's all quiet again -- recharging batteries, working on new projects...

Aye. We had a mini-boom of Martha "What if..." fics, and then went all quiet again (but I bet the day we get in-character photos, another boom starts up again).

It's just... there isn't a deficiency of fic right now, the post-Doomsday boom is really just starting to slow a little.

Maybe she just worded it badly. Although I have to admit I've bookmarked hardly any fic (good/bad/smut/fixit or otherwise) for lunchtime reading over the couple of weeks.

yeah - that's pretty much what I did. I can never express myself properly.

Basically what I meant is that the number of fic appearing on T&C had dropped quite considerably.

Plus I was kinda bored that day nad reading fic tends to make me not bored.
