Not So Secret, Really  
Um, idk if you want this in your life, but even hating new!sherlock as I do, I love this:


Fanfic about characters writing fanfic--secret!kink? Between this and the similar long Merlin!fic, maybe. Anyone know any other examples? Also I thought I COULD USE THIS FOR MY THESIS SOMEHOW. O_O

I love how huge "The Theory of Narrative Causality" has become. I love that a fanfic about fanfic now has it's own fanfic. I love that it's morphing into this great big beautiful 'verse. And I love that even people like yourself who might not be that fond of the BBCverse can still enjoy it.

And I'll stop gushing now.

I do enjoy the fic of the fic existing. So meta I could diiiiiie and they could SOLVE THAT and it would be *even more meta!!*.

Hi, this is only my favorite kind of fic ever! I have been tracking "Theory of Narrative Causality" with huge glee, but in addition to it and to the awesome Merlin fic and, obviously, all the "The Doctor writes Doctor/Master fic" fills, a couple favorites of mine are:

The Affair of the Asphxiated Acafan, by AJ Hall, (Sherlock BBC) which is part proper mystery story and part meta about fandom, academia, and what popular mysteries would look like if Sherlock Holmes hadn't been in the literature;

If On a Winter's Night A Fangirl, by [info]trinityofone, (Supernatural), which is a story from the POV of Becky The Fangirl. (I'm a little ambivalent about the way Becky and fourth-wall-breakage is used in SPN canon, but I love it when fanfic reclaims her. And you've kind of got to love a story that has [spoiler!] speaking through fanfic, literally.)

and for Due South fandom, I wrote Fangirl!Frannie. Though I don't know if you know that canon at all. :/

There are probably loads more I could dig up, especially depending on how flexible you want to be about what constitutes fanfic within the narrative, and on which fandoms you're willing to read in. So if you want more links, for thesis-writing purposes or whatever, I could keep checking my bookmarks.

ETA: AARGH, curse my current lack of comment-editing access.

I read the Sherlock one because alas it's the only canon I knew, but I enjoyed muchly and must tell the author so!

In a little bit I'm going to tell the wooooooorld/the five potentially interested people wtf I'm doing with my mad mad fanfic!thesis and then I may need to CALL UPON THE MIGHT OF YOUR BOOKMARKS/have a quick convo? Because I had a kind of disturbing meeting-talky thing with someone writing in v. different fandoms from me re: Her Experience in Fandom sort of related to my thesisything, and her argument indicated a divergence from mine that was partly POV, and partly Her Actual Experience, which unsettled me/contradicted some things I'd thought were pretty solid/given. So I need to talk to someone such as yourself, maybe, who's operated in fandoms I don't know well at all, and see which of us has the more Generally True view.

Oh sure, I'd be glad to. I read in a pretty wide range of fandoms. And I'm curious now about what the differences were, and what made them disturbing.
