Poll!
In keeping with the theme of "Todesengel has too much time on his hands", I present to you a poll dealing with two disparate subjects.

Subject the first: I've noticed that as I've grown older and stodgier I tend to write more gen fic. Since the original charter of this community was for fic that's all about the boy/boy loving, posting that gen fic here would be inappropriate. So, in the interest of keeping our tiny little corner going, I propose altering the charter to allow the posting of gen fic on this community. Community, speak your mind via the little radio boxes in the poll!

Subject the second: Also in the interest of keeping the community going, I've comprised a list of the more common community challenges that could be run this year. Please note that by voting in the second half of the poll you're implying a willingness to actively participate in those challenges -- it's not just enough to have people interested in reading whatever the challenge produces, we need players too!

Anyway. Now for the poll!

Any well written fic is always good, so gen is always welcome, sometimes it's the best out there, I actually like writing fic with both slash and het pairings involved (I know weird).

Challenges are always awesome! And breed more fic!!! So that is always good.

Fics

Well I enjoy good fics, but I like slash fics better. Most K/A fics anymore are too fairy-taleish and sickly-sweet. Gen fics are good too. I just like well written fics.

Re: Fics

Now April, you know I don't do sickly sweet K/A fairy tales ;-)

Re: Fics

No, you do HAWT L/A fics (among others). :)

I'm partial to slash, but I've ready plenty of well-written general fics, too. Just like killer, K/A fics get sickly sweet and too many cause cavities (but a taste every now and then is not bad, per se).

In terms of challenges, I'm too new to writing fanfic to even know what most of those types were. :/
