overachievers, why C. Miller doesn't read or post at Nifty, ways to know you have a big slash ego, the RPS
debate, "how do you come?", the six degrees of badfic and untapped slash sources.

and Ethics of Boyband RPS," a young writer talking about discrimination against young writers, Boy Wonder,
bad feedback, songfics in the 'N Sync fandom and "The Opposite of Slash."
The beta board - Find or be a beta reader. A classifieds of sorts.
Discussion board - Talk about whatever you
feel like talking about, and we and other people will respond. It's fun. Really. It used to be really
