    The Life Cycle of Fic

    The Life Cycle of Fic

    Hey Fangirls! Unless you’re in fandom the concept of a story having a life cycle may be foreign, but like most things in media, even fan fiction stories have a path like birth and death. Listen in to find out the complexities of the road that most fic take.

Genuinely Amazing

I absolutely love this show! If you’ve ever wondered about the history behind some of the most well-known aspects of fandom— what’s a drabble? What are tropes? What’s A/B/O?— then this is the show for you! M and Bea are really great together, and fun to listen to. I always look forward to new episodes!

yayremus ,

Great!

Criminal that there aren't more reviews for this podcast - really comprehensive overview of fic and fandom that captures the delight and wonderful weirdness of both those things. Highly recommend!
