The Perils of the Pit of Voles

My name is Speaker to Customers and I'm a masochist.

I've been reading fic at fanfiction dot net recently. I started off reading Stargate SG1 fic - the archives that I've found tend to be full of slushy shipper fic and that just isn't SG1 to me, and so I fell back on the Pit of Voles where at least there is a wide variety - and moved on to BtVS.

I'd forgotten how dreadful things are there. There is some good stuff (although most of the best I'd read before on LJ or on dedicated archives) but the majority of the fics are unspeakably dire. There is a surprising amount of Buffy/Giles fic there - ewww, ewww, and thrice ewww! My suffering has proved useful, however, in gathering material for CW's forthcoming presentation at the UK Writercon Midimeet. Mainly from the illiterate summaries.

The one that cracked me up most featured this gem: 'Buffy puts Faith in a comma'.
