Another fanfic gem  
"...she soon found herself at the feet of the iron fist of Sheriff Vaisey of Nottingham."

*wipes tears of laughter from eyes*...

Oh, I needed that... but wait, there's more!

"Blowing the candle out, the room plunged into darkness, freezing instantly as her mind flash backed..."

o_O - The room blew the candle out and froze instantly? "flash backed"?

Best part? This fic already has 2 positive comments - bet you can't guess which canon character the OC is making out with...

That's right, she's dragged from the dungeons, he tells her he's going to have his wicked way with her and despite all the hints at past abuse "she felt herself begin to long for him to claim her as his"...

If I didn't laugh I think I'd vomit.

It's not my ship, I admit it, but I appreciate what other people see in it and will happily read and enjoy it when it's done well.

This is not one of those occasions.

In fact I'm sure even some of the most hardcore fans of this ship must read fics like this and just cringe.

Might be an idea to have a fic rec every week but dedicate it to a particular character? So one week is Robin fics, one week is Guy fics, one week is Allan fics... and then everybody can go back to ignoring it ;)

Oh, that IS a good idea.

Serious question...how much interest is there still, in our fandom? Obviously, some are more interested than others, but overall, I'm seeing a sharp drop-off. Even the length of rh_press updates reflects it.

I'm wondering if (a) a fic rec post might generate extra interest or (b) there isn't enough interest to make it really work.
