Gen versus shipping  
It's only one small example, and possibly only furiosity will be interested, but I just found the following rather amusing:

I posted a ship-fic, Final Spark, and a gen-fic, One Curse, to Fiction Alley at about the same time. Far from being basely ignored, as I'd expected it to be, One Curse actually garnered twice as many reviews.

Ja, let's hear it for the poor, poor Muggles.

I know! That's why I mentioned it. Really wasn't supposed to be a pimp or anything!

Congratulations! I know you were worried about that one, but I knew it was good. :) Yay!

Not worried, really, I just assumed there wouldn't be much interest. But there's more than there is for poor Lily/James! I reckon that might increase later, though. I mean, I hope ...

I'm sure it will. And until then, you know that you'll always have at least one devoted fan. :D

I really don't tell you often enough how much I luff you.

AWW. :D
You too.

Wozza, surely you knew that was me? On second thoughts, I guess that name is old ... eh. I assume you know these things, darling!

But I didn't hide it! Alvira was always my username on Ficalley, and I'll post it on Skyehawke as Scoradh sometime this week, and it's been on my fic journal for simply months. Hiding in plain sight!

No, it wasn't fanfic. That's why getting any reaction at all surprised me! (Was so going to write rxn ... need to keep away from science!!) It got rec'd?!

Oooh, because you do love me, could you make an icon saying, "Absolute fandom corrupts absolutely"? It's such a great line!!

I've read neither (this must be remedied at once, though!) but I'm very impressed. Go fandom!

Oh, One Curse is very unfanficish; what a word -- it's all about Muggles. Unless you really want to sample my lame almost-original fic, steer clear. xD

Is that icon from F's fic?

No, no, I shall hunt it down! I used to read/write exclusively gen and I haven't read any for ohgoshages and exclusively-Muggle fic sounds interesting!

Er, no, it's a quote from f_w.

Well, as an accomplished piece of HTML, that sucked.

Go gen-fics. (: (Speaking of which, One Curse is my next stop on the things-to-read list. And hey! 'rec me more of your fics - are they all in Fiction Alley? Or other places too?)

And hey, are you still trying to get Prince of Tennis? Because I have the first five episodes if you want them.

At any rate - if you still need them I can put them up on megaupload.com or something and you can download them from there (which should work, though I don't know how long it would take). If that doesn't work though, I can always put them on a cd and mail it to the destination of your choice. Just let me know.

Hee, um, well most of the later (read: better) stuff is on rainspots in the memories, but Ficalley would work too. And Skyehawke, under scoradh.

Whee, that would be fun! If it doesn't work on megaupload, though, I'm not that pushed, pray don't go to too much trouble! I could probably afford to buy them off the internet, if I knew they were any good (and I don't, you see.)
