2018 Fanfiction Reading Challenge Final Update + 2019 Fanfiction Reading Challenge Sign-Up

Shocked people: 'Guess What? I am participating in the 2019 fanfiction challenge! The challenge is being hosted by Carrie @ CatOnTheBookshelf'

Fanfiction time! XD

In no way has this post been thrown together in the odd moments that my hectic life grants me *shifty glances.*

OK, so maybe it has... just don't tell anyone! 😎

I was originally trying to get this post all done and dusted in December, but my December was... not good. So here we are!

So that means that I'm smushing my 2018 Fanfiction Reading Challenge final wrap-up into my 2019 sign-up.

Because I decided. #ShesARebel

2018 wrappage-uppage firstage my nerdlets!

In the second half of the year, I read 219 fic-chapters (as well as my poor maths skills can make it, anyhow.)

Added to my previous 159 fic chapters, that's 378 fic-chapters.

My goal was the 'Tuxedo Cat' level of 300-399 fic-chapters - which means I achieved the Tuxedo Cat level! (Woop!)

A reminder that this challenge is hosted by Carrie @ Cat on the Bookshelf.

Here's the list for the second half of the year, I've added CW and 18+ Only to the ones I remember having things in them that need that,

But it's more than possible I've forgotten a sh** tonne of stuff, and this is fanfiction, so be careful my nerdlets!

Inclusion =/= recommendation.

I've decided to go with Option #2 on account of I'm useless at setting my own parameters.

#Option 2 is to read fics to meet the following list:

  1. Fanfic Source: Read a fanfic from a different archive/source
  2. Read fanfics from more than 1 or 2 fandoms
  3. A fic that is less than 10,000 words
  4. A fic that is more than 50,000 words
  5. A gen fic
  6. Crossover
  7. An abandoned fic
  8. Fairy tale
  9. Slash or Femslash
  10. Fanfic starring your OTP
  11. Canon-compliant fic
  12. Genderbending
  13. Challenge fic
  14. 5+ year old fic
  15. <1 year old fic
  16. Time travel fic
  17. Enemies to Lovers
  18. Script fic
  19. Unusual character relationships
  20. Recursive fanfiction
  21. Smut/Lemon
  22. Next gen fic
  23. Coffee Shop AU
  24. Period fic
  25. Evil!Hero OR Good!Villain

While I do have to set how much I wanna try to accomplish, this one's easier: I'll just try all of them!

If I achieve 15+ then I'll be happy though!
