brightknightie: Janette leaning on the Raven bar (Janette)

The [ profile] femgenficathon 2011 Masterlist is up.  The game garnered 67 stories in 55 fandoms.  (As you know, by definition, all are gen and star canonically female characters.)

I read perhaps half.  No stories were submitted in my usual fandoms, so choosing what to read across the fest led me mostly to tales where I know the source material, but not the fanfiction.  Of those I read in this game, my favorites are:

Other fandoms represented that some of you might enjoy include Downton Abbey, Life on Mars, Tangled, Chronicles of Narnia, Firefly, and of course Doctor Who (which I can't read because I'm chronically a season behind and ducking spoilers).  My own submission was "Salt Its Tail" (PG, ~7K, Young Blades, Jacqueline).

I support this ficathon's goals, and it's been interesting as a writer and as a reader.  However, there is often a disconnectedness about multi-fandom games, not to mention non-exchange games, and this is both; I think it might benefit from a boost in community fellow-feeling, though I don't know how one would bring that about except by recruiting more writers, and chatting together about it more.
