Wooooow. o.o

I just had another reminder why I decline to interact with people, especially fanfolks in fandom communities. Some of those people love a good fight over absolutely nothing. This fact never ceases to both surprise and amaze me. But hey, this is the Internet and anonymous trolling and pr0n reign supreme.

Even so, the entire discussion as a whole turned out to be rather informative in a general way. A couple of folks were more into confrontation instead of clarification, but that is to be expected. *shrugs*

I have to admit that I had the most boring day at work, but I suppose boring > aggravating. I've been looking forward to my days off so that I can sleep to my heart's content and maybe force myself to create fic for my unloved pairing. Seriously, how are more people NOT shipping Abraham Lincoln/Henry Sturges??? The fiction might not be that great, but I'll probably end up warning for that and calling it even.

The pairing itself is clear as day, but there are not enough people in the fandom to really get it going. It would be wonderful and complex and sexy as hell if handled correctly. I, a person who has never been one for long fics, am half-tempted to tackle this myself. My only issue is that I don't have a standing beta or anyone that likes/has detailed knowledge of things that I like. I basically have to type up stuff and depend on others randomly showing up to offer con crit or spotting the issues later on after it's posted for ages.

Whatever happened to build it and they will come? Does that only work for baseball fields and not fan fiction communities?
