Multi-fandom Frequently Asked Question # 383922

Why are there so few stories about ____________ in fandom?

1. Because you aren't writing them. [See also: Plot Bunny Adoption Program]

2. If you are not a writer, it's because you are not promoting stories like these and encouraging people to read them. [See also: Rec Lists]

3. Encouraging people to write does not work, because in most fandoms, almost nobody wants to write things that only two people and a small chihuahua named Snorkel will ever read. FACT. [See also: Bribing People With Gift Certificates.]

4. If you are a lurker who never posts about anything fannish, please keep your sense of entitlement muzzled and leashed. [See also: You Get Out What You Put In, If You Put In Nothing, Quitcher Bitchin']
