I'm conducting a small survey on readerships in fandom for a class, and was wondering if people would mind taking a few minutes to answer a fairly short, 10-question survey about their participation in fandom. I would really appreciate any input you might have! Click here to take the survey
Crossposted to...well, every LJ fandom community I'm in. :) Please feel free to pass on the survey link to your friends and post it in your own journals, as the more responses I get, the more data I have to analyze. Thanks very, very much!ETA:
The previous link expired. You can now take the survey here
. Thank you!
This is my first time posting here, and I'm would really appreciate some feedback.

Uzumaki Naruto, a part-time student-archaeologist. His latest discovery: a buried city known to exist 500 years ago as Konohagakure. Along with it, Naruto finds a diary that once belonged to one traitor and lover, Uchiha Sasuke [SasuNaru YAOI] Disclaimer:
I don't own anything.Warning:
SasuNaru, yaoi, shounen-ai, weirdness (?), OOC (?), some fluff :D heavy AU. Rated M for safety :D This chapter is rather intensive on explanations, so yeah… More notes below, thanks :) And yes, there will be a happy ending here, even if Sasuke is a "ghost". A familiar smirk twisted upon the other's lips—lips that existed since five hundred years ago. "We've finally found each other, Naruto." Feedback:
welcome. Especially on the title choice. I considered (1) Heartless, (2) Gate Keeper of Hecatonchires/へカトンケイルの門番 and others -__-;;A/N: This entry has been cross-posted everywhere :O This is my first time posting here :)
This is probably an odd request, but I'd like your thoughts on something, fellow fans. I'm in the process of writing a fic (obviously), and it's slightly AU-- timeline is altered a bit so future adult content isn't potentially illegal/squicky, etc.
To start off with, here's a quick synopsis:
It's a Kisame/Sakura pairing (which is quickly becoming my OTP, even with the grand total of 7 fics available, one of which is a oneshot of mine). While on a mission, Sakura's kidnapped by Akatsuki for various reasons. They give her an offer she literally can't refuse, and along the way, she learns that there's always more to a person than their reputation. Of course, there's fights and flirting and medical things and all that good stuff, too!
Yes, I know what you're thinking. "But Ivy, that's the most cliché plot device in the Itachi/Sakura fics!"
I realize this, but here's the thing you have to understand: When it comes down to it, there was really only like 12 origional plotlines in existence, and everything else spawned from them. This won't be the most origional thing in existance, but I'm not following the cliché to the letter.
I'm trying to create something unique within the cliché that people will hopefully enjoy and stroke my ego over. :D
One of the things I'd like a general opinion on is this: ( Cut for mention of current manga happenings, proceed at your own risk.Collapse )
...there was something else I was going to ask, but I suddenly can't remember what it was. Will edit if I remember, I suppose. At any rate, I'd greatly appreciate any thoughts on this or suggestions that you'd like to share. Thanks in advance!

So I finally joined the kakairu community here on LJ, and I felt inspired to write a short piece. However, since it doesn't revolve around KakaIru, I thought I'd post it here instead. This is my first attempt at a Naruto fanfic, so I apologize if it's crap.
The story focuses on the woman left behind when Hayate is killed by the sand. I just recently reread the manga, and did you guys notice the female ANBU member who visited the memorial shortly after he died, and on the day of the Sandaime's funeral? I didn't, when I first read it, but when I noticed it, I was touched. The fics I've read about Hayate mainly link him to other male Jounin, so this is my take.
Please review! I'd really appreciate feedback! ^_^
