10:24 pm - Question for Who fans
Okay. Where is the best place to post/advertise Doctor Who fic? I haven't gotten much response (though a good number of hits) to my latest story on my LJ, AO3, and ff.net.

Thoughts?

http://www.whofic.com/ is one of the major archives, but I don't think people get much of a response there, either. Did you just post here (when you say LJ) or did you link at some comms? I'm not all that knowledgable on the Amy, Rory or Eleven side of things, so I can't rec any specific ones.

Yes, www.whofic.com, AKA "A Teaspon and an Open Mind" AKA "Teaspoon" is the place to go for Doctor Who fic.

But as for response... look, nobody ever gets much of a response ANYWHERE, unless they write multi-chaptered Harry Potter epics posted on fanfiction.net, in which case they get thousands of reviews.
No, I don't know how they do it either. Perhaps they have minions.

LOL. Okay, given that: I was actually a bit sad that I didn't get more comments just my LJ. I know exactly how much of my flist is composed of Who fans, and apparently only 5 of them (counting my beta) have actually read this fic. Perhaps it was a bad time to post?

I bet they do have minions. Oh well, I mostly wrote that fic for myself anyway. And a few of you enjoyed it, plus a hilariously positive review I got on ff.net, so that's okay.

I dunno, maybe I'll try Teaspoon. I have been reading Eleven fic over there lately.

I've gotten pretty good responses there, certainly compared to other places.

Thank you--I've gotten 2 reviews out of about 140 hits so far, but they were both awesome reviews, so. Good caliber of reader there, yes?

They really do seem to be, yes, especially when compared with places like ff.net.

I'm not very deep in Who fandom, so I don't know about comms to link at. I finally found who_daily (seriously, just a couple of weeks ago), so I told them about my LJ, but not specifically about the fic....

I don't know; have you tried posting a link on dwfiction?

The trouble is, Who fandom is so unwieldy it's hard to keep an overview. If you're not on the who_daily you could link to it in the comments and they should put it in the next letter.

And there's doctoreleven, of course. I'm not very active, but they seem a friendly bunch.
