The most wonderful/frustrating time of the year  
It is f_march_madness Fandom March Madness time again!  Nominating fandoms now - it's completely crazy-making as there are only two open slots in each category and so many great fandoms to pick from to nominate...  BUT BSG is eligible (despite its age) thanks to Blood and Chrome! So that was a gimme, but it's so tough in drama and sci-fi.  At least among the mod choices there are a lot of fandoms I don't care about; that'll make it easier on me later.  Though, ugh, now we'll get "anti" campaigns as well when people think they're funny but only inspire people to be even more insufferable in both directions-  my least favorite part is always the couple of fans who feel it's their job to patrol what other fans like.

And speaking of a character who's doubtless going to get an anti-campaign assuming Avengers gets in  -- Tom Hiddleston is being utterly adorable on twitter right this second about his MTV movie awards nomination.  BLESS.  <3   (I swear, sometimes he comes out with this amazingly mature thoughtfulness and the rest of the time he's twelve..)

ok let's segue to fic (y'know because of the window open to the 42K words of fic he's inspiring me to write. *shakes fist*)-

So I knew that Lizzie Bennet Diaries was not a small fandom, but I had no idea. My wee fic in TWO DAYS has moved into third place in my total hits at AO3 (and that extra day was just to bump it up a notch). I'm not ever going to be one of those ten thousand hits people, but y'know, for me, it's doing amazingly well! though of course, I also noticed that its hit/kudo ratio is also the worst of my top hit fic, which is making me sad so it balances out into my usual neurotic mess... At least I got it out there before the show ended though, which is better than I usually manage things...

Yes! LBD is an automatic entry because it was the winner's choice from the bracket match last year so yay!

Yeah, I wish they'd just put it in the bracket - Avengers is such a big fandom with all its little corners, to think it wouldn't get voted in is kind of ridiculous. but I guess we'll see how it plays out.
