I rarely read fanfic anymore, other than a few stories here and there. Every so often, I'll get the bug in a new fandom and go through a few weeks of mainlining the fic, then I just stop. That happened with Iron Man. Since discovering Magnificent Seven, I seem to be breaking the pattern. It's been several months, and I'm still reading the fic! Currently, I'm working my way through a 158 part story called 'When Shadows Fall'. What's awesome is that there is so much great gen fic, even though it's a big slash fandom. And so much of it is well written. And I think the variety helps; there's the Old West fic, and then there's the AU ATF modern day fic. I've never been much of a fan of AUs, so that's a pattern breaker too. There are other AUs in the fandom, but so far, only the ATF has attracted me. Not a fan of kiddie AUs, I'm afraid. And lots of great humour pieces in both universes to go along with the angst.
Thank you strangevisitor7, for getting me into this fandom!! I've been having so much fun!
