Discussion Post: Where do you find your fic?


As you've probably gathered by now, het_reccers is a community for highlighting and archiving the best het fic around—it's right there in the name. And that's what we're always going to be.

But with the gentle demise of LJ and of multifandom rec communities like crack_van, it's not always easy to find great new fics of all sorts, especially in big fandoms where searching AO3 tags just doesn't cut it.

So, as fans of slash and gen and poly fics as well as het, we wanted to ask all of you: besides here, how do you find good fic to read? Do you follow and/or contribute to other rec communities, on LJ or elsewhere? For specific fandoms or for everything? Do you just read your friends' work? Are you an AO3 ninja with a knack for narrowing down your options? We're awfully curious.

Whatever your tricks are, tell us where to find the good stuff! That way, every member can find out new places to both find and share all types of awesome fic. If you're on LJ, comment below; Tumblr users, feel free to reblog this post with your comments.
