2) I'm going to be posting here again, even if no one else is. Expect different content than before. More media criticism, less personal stuff. More public.
We're doing this. Who's with me?
We recently got to 100000 hits on our fanfic, which is kind of huge. We also hit 20,000 comments, which is pretty much unheard of-- the average for Ao3 is 5, and the next highest is about 7,000.
So we wanted to do something fun and fandom-friendly and interactive to celebrate
To that end, we're hosting the Earth-1796 Fanworks Challenge, a fanfic and fanart contest for readers* of 1796 Broadway. (*you do not need to be a regular reader to enter, though it will help!)
Please let us know if you have any questions! We'll be happy to answer!
I just posted the last chapter in the first long fic I've ever completed from beginning to end. It clocks in at about 78k words. It is NOT Winter Soldier compliant as I actually finished writing it before the movie came out (which is eerie in some of the similarities, but hey...)
I'm just copy/pasting my blurb from Ao3:
In the aftermath of the Battle of New York, four Avengers move into Stark Tower. One goes back to California. Another goes back to Asgard. Natasha is tasked with keeping the team in one piece. In the beginning, her job is a tangle of conflicting personalities, emotional fallout, and distrust.
After a while, it stops being a job.
This story is also a love letter to all the books I read growing up, to Asbury Park, with a little side of She-Hulk. It also addresses what the Avengers were up to during Iron Man 3.
This is an official prequel to 1796 Broadway. Read in either order.
