But wow, is there ever a lot of badfic in Mass Effect fandom.

I freely admit that any Original Character protagonist automatically puts a story in my badfic bin. Particularly when they're paired with a canon character. Boyfriend thinks Mass Effect fandom is particularly ripe for Mary Sues because so many people play the games in a self-insert kinda way.

There's also a lot of longfic. That's not inherently bad, but it's annoying when I'm looking for a quick smutty read and have to wade through a lot of 50k+ word epics. Oh, and another instant badfic indicator for me: Abuse of author's notes. If there's one at the end of every chapter, I start having fanfiction.net flashbacks and break out in hives.

On the plus side, I am finding a steady supply of decent porn! I think I'm possibly enjoying the Turian sex a bit much. That's like half a step from furries, right?

that would take an obscene number of woman-hours to complete?

I also feel like all my ideas, while lady-centric, are insufficiently ~feminist~ for WisCon. Like, I'm pretty sure "Mass Effect Grrrrrrl Power" and "EDI is Awesome" lack the requisite cultural gravitas. Adding femslash usually helps, right?

BABY'S FIRST VID! This ended up waaaaay more ambitious than I planned. It gave me lots of opportunities to experiment with Fraps, the Mass Effect command console, and Sony Vegas. I feel a little more prepared to start the ~artsy~ vids I've been pondering. Don't think I'm brave enough to post this to any comms, though.

*taps microphone*

Been feeling fannish lately and missing my daily dose of fandom weirdos, so here I am.

Currently on a video game kick. Way too obsessed with Mass Effect right now. Developing an unhealthy fetish for Turians.

Seriously considering learning to vid. Likelihood of that actually happening? No idea. But I have some video editing experience, so that increases the odds a bit.

So what have I missed?
