I'll get this party started and be a Pollyanna for a change.

This fandom can be as annoying at cat hair in your mouth, but there's also a bunch of really cool people who have become good friends. Thanks for being so supportive, smart and fun to know.

(Anonymous) 2010-03-30 08:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes to this. Sane S/P fans exist. Really.

(Anonymous) 2010-03-30 08:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe it's because I'm used to slash, but man there are a lot of pregnancy/getting married/settling down fics in this fandom! Where's all the kinky, dirty, dark, fantastically fucked up and twisted stuff hiding? I don't begrudge anyone their fluffy happy relationship fics, but I crave the dommy and sexually manipulative stuff, too! I get that we're ultimately shipping a sitcom and it's hard to ascribe dark motivations to characters we see making gags every scene, but I can't be the only one that goes "uh, another 'they get married and live happily ever after' fic?! Where's my fucked up porn?!"

No offense intended to those of you that thrive on cuddles and fluff, we've all got our thing!

has anyone noticed that a lot of the good authors have packed up and left or are on the verge of doing so? js.

(Anonymous) 2010-03-30 08:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes.

I think it's due to a few things:

1. Interesting, complex fic being ignored by the fandom.

2. Fewer reviews in general.

3. The craziness of the fandom, led by one of the mods.

4. S3 being kind of sucky.

(Anonymous) 2010-03-30 08:48 pm (UTC)(link)
The community has gotten a lot less fun to play in during recent months. I feel like there's been a paradigm shift in the members and how things are going. I'm not certain if it's due to the Awesome Writers / Commenters leaving or if it's just sort of getting out of hand.

I hope the Awesome Writers and Commenters come back to play, because I do like the community. It just feels a lot less fun and a whole lot of crazy.


But I guess this is what happens with fandoms get bigger and there a *certain* mods that promote negative behavior and don't lead by example.

To those of you who are still here and post and comment - I wish to express my gratitude that I've gotten to know you guys. I really do enjoy our conversations and comments and stories. I just hope that we can all go back to that fun place we joined a year or so ago.

Anything ever written by Damalur. If she were into girls, and I were into girls, I'd get on a plane right now and go marry her. I recommend "Moonpie and Meemaw" if you haven't read that yet. (http://community.livejournal.com/graymalkinlane/23406.html)

Also, MontyCrowley's "The Donna Noble/Sheldon Cooper One". It isn't S/P, but it's good stuff. (http://montycrowley.livejournal.com/9086.html)

I'm a hardcore LP fan so I'm not exactly sure how I got linked to this meme, but it is fascinating to read through these comments. It's also really nice to know that they actually are some intelligent SP fans. It's feels like everyone I come into contact with from that side of fandom seem to have no grip on reality or what this show is really about and then get pissy and bitch you out if you contradict something they say. :P

So thank you all for reviving my faith in this fandom as a whole! :)

(Anonymous) 2010-03-30 08:59 pm (UTC)(link)
See, that's exactly my issue. [livejournal.com profile] arabian and her coeterie have managed to convince everyone outside of S/P fandom that everyone who ships Sheldon and Penny is a complete nutbag. And while there are plenty of those people, there are lots of sane, smart people, too.

I ship S/P like crazy but it makes me so sad that we're the fandom gorilla and there's virtually nothing at any of the other comms. Why do we hog all the reaaction posts and review links and all that? I'd love to hang out at an actual gen comm if anyone else did too.

(Anonymous) 2010-03-30 09:00 pm (UTC)(link)
This is a terrible idea. It would degenerate into LP fans saying SP people "have no grip on reality" and SP fans trying to explain why L&P are terrible for each other.

On the other hand, the explosion of wank would be terribly, disastrously beatiful.

I'm totally uninvolved in any and all fandom drama. What the hell is so bad about the mod? I heard about the Twitter thing-- was that her? Anything else?

Being a mod is often a shitty, thankless job, so if she's just being pounced on because wanking is fun I'd like to know. Otherwise I want the dirt! XD

Yeah, but does it really require 50 comments to keep you motivated to write? I'm fine with only getting one comment on my fics.

Though, I do concede that if you post something publicly, it's better to get the acknowledgment that someone out there is reading it. But I just hate when people act like that's the only thing that matters.

(Anonymous) 2010-03-30 09:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Or maybe you're fine with one comment because your fics suck.

Can we please cease and desist with the pointless posts clogging up Paradox, please? Example:

I SAW RED VINES AT THE STORE TODAY AND IT REMINDED ME OF HOW MUCH SHELDON LOVES RED VINES.

Who the hell cares? Post something constructive. This same thing happened at the main House/Cuddy community, but they now FINALLY have mods that will tamp that shit down. We need the same at Paradox.

I joined the community, as a lot of people probably did, because I enjoyed the dynamic between Sheldon and Penny and saw the potential that it contained. I think that their relationship makes for great fic, and I truly appreciate the writers that explore the what-could-be's in funny, heartbreaking, genuine, cracky, and smutty ways.

I honestly couldn't care less if S/P ever happens on the show. Truthfully, I don't know that I'd even trust the writers to do it in any kind of way that would satisfy me. I enjoy the characters, and I appreciate the fact that the show has given them to us - because that means we can use our talent to make our own ideas come to life.

I know that there's all kinds of people in every fandom, and everyone has the right to be there, but I can't help resenting the crazies who are only there to squeal and complain and push their own agenda. Look, it's okay to be passionate about your ship - we've all been there. But you know what? When your antics start getting the rest of us labeled as crazies right along with you, that's where my empathy ends.

This community has a lot of very intelligent, fun, talented people. They are what made me so happy to join, because I had found a place to share something I enjoy. Lately, however, there also seem to be a lot of immature whackjobs who appear to be WAY too emotionally invested in the show. I mean, seriously? A casting spoiler has you in tears and pleading for pretty drabbles and drawings to make you feel better? Really?

You members who are sane and awesome and who write amazingly inventive and well-crafted stories - you're the only reason I've stayed. I know that you care about the characters and the show, but not so much that you make me embarrassed to be a member of the community. I know you haven't been as active lately, and I get why, but it still makes me sad. Come back, please, and help set things right.

The rest of you: get a life. Stop crying over a sitcom and write some good fic if you don't like how things are going on the show. Stop being such goddamn babies and psychos and get over yourselves. Some of us know the difference between television and reality and are humiliated to be associated with the likes of you.

Hi, anon! Are you me? Because that could have come straight from my brain.

I'm a little freaked out right now. But in a good way.

seconded. she has the right to flee, but it seemed so abrupt.

Things we do like.

(Anonymous) 2010-03-30 09:27 pm (UTC)(link)
We've had a lot of negativity. How about things that are positive?


I just wanted to share that through this fandom, I have read a lot of great fic by some great writers and they've inspired me to write. In spite of the grievances, there's been a lot of positivity that has come from this fandom.

And the best part? These fantastic writers are very kind and will help you out if you just ask.

Re: Things we do like.

(Anonymous) 2010-03-30 09:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Definitely motion seconded on the positivity! And you're so right about the great writers in this fandom. There's still this great vibe of a small community of smart, friendly people who support and help each other with writing and get excited about their show. We're so lucky to have that!

I'm guessing this is your first anonymeme? They don't tend to tell us who they are. That's kind of the point.

kind of pathetic, I know

We need more names named. Take some pity on a noob!

(Anonymous) 2010-03-30 09:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Really, the only name that needs to be named is [livejournal.com profile] arabian, if you ask me.

On a related note, it always disappoints me when I see someone who has the potential to be cool sucked into her orbit.
