There are HP ficathons all the time and for the most part, people just whip off the fic and post it. No muss, no fuss, at least very little that I see on my flist. But this Stargate ficathon caused much pain and sorrow to many on my flist, including me. Why do you suppose that is? Is HP an easier fandom to write something short in? Or is it lack of experience on the Stargate side with this sort of challenge? Is the quality of the stories the same but there's more perfectionism in this bit of SG fandom?
Does this mean we need to have lots more Stargate ficathons so they get easier for us to do? We'll have the Pairing Request ficathon and the Jack/Harry ficathon and the Sam/dead boyfriend ficathon and the Teal'c Gets Some ficathon. You're all with me, right?
I'm part way through my J/D ficathon reading -- so fun! I'm trying to read all the stories that dropped on my flist at least. It may be a day or two before I get to them all, though.
