Good afternoon, my poppets. Now, as you mostly probably know, the Chalet School fandom is pretty well-represented in the Girlsown genre generally. There’re a few websites, people know where to come to get their fic fix, everything is merry and bright.
However, this tends to be the case where people are already in the GO/CS loop, and know where to come. Lots of people have never even thought about *looking* for signs of CS fandom on the internet. It has become noticeable to people who use LiveJournal, that they are a bizarre number of CS fans out there, fans who have, as far as one can tell, never actually engaged in CS fandom. (Yes indeedy; post on practically any community and you’ve got good odds of finding another CS fan on it.)
Because of this, some people (at the moment Katie and Sarah K – hope they won’t mind my naming names, and in fact bouncing them into doing what they said *g*) are planning to set up an LJ community for the CS, to widen the fandom net, so to speak. And, possible, crackvan the CS (crack_van is a community designed to recommend fics in different fandoms).
Anyway, the point of this rather blethering post is:
(a) Everyone should pimp the CS, because you never know where you’ll find a fan;
(b) Please can you post your fics to the SDL (it’s really easy – just a cut and paste job) so that they can be crackvanned, because you can’t crackvan stuff that’s on a thread, what with the fifty million comments interspersing the parts.
dont ever tell me
