Did You Know There is Also a Teen Wolf Anon Meme? FFA Post #152
The Sixth Seal

I'm moving back to my old city. Part of me wants to deanon entirely- mostly so I can try to use the large number of anons as a potential audience to sell spare furniture. Anyone wanna buy a coffee table? An entertainment center? Take some of my potted plants?

Sometimes anon saves us from ourselves. Even if "sunnycamehome2u's furniture sale" would inevitably end in delicious delicious wank.

Re: Podfic's validity as a genre, and AO3's problems as an archive for all fanwork

I wonder how the fic author feels about the fact that the podfic is apparently oh so special and famous (with the fic itself being apparently unimportant compared to the reader's performance), while their own fic which the podfic was supposed to be celebrating/showcasing in the first place is "not particularly notable."

Now, I'm neither a bandom nor podfic fan, but if the podfic was the first with something new, I understand that it's notable. I mean, it's not that unusual when you study classic lit that the first of some new literary technique is nowhere near the best example of it, but it's still historically important because it's first and changes how other people create.

NA

You may well wonder that, but how is it relevant to the discussion? The purpose of a wiki is to provide information, not to soothe people's feelings by reassuring them that their work is notable.

Probably fine? That author is prolific and awesome and has many, many, many very notable fics to her name. Not every fic needs to be notable--99% of them aren't. It's still a great fic.

Some authors feel like you seem to.

Some authors probably haven't thought much about it.

Some authors actively support podficcer's performances as fanworks tied to, but also separate from their own.

"not particularly notable" doesn't mean that something it's good, it just means that for one reason or another, it hasn't made as big a splash in writing fandom. Podfic fandom does have its own currents; recording that are huge for us may not make much of a splash as a written text, and recordings of very notable written works may not be particularly huge in our community.

That seems rather needlessly stroppy. The fic isn't being discarded as unimportant - it's been actively described as very good. But it ISN'T innovating the medium (whereas if someone found the first instance of Not!Fic, that COULD be held up as innovative and game-changing). The podfic, however, is notable for the fact that it was a seminal work, providing a template for a method of translating that particular style of writing into the spoken form.

Why are you finding this difficult to grasp, Nonny? Why do you want to try to make it into an insult, when it transparently is not any such thing?
