dying a slow fic death

good god people, what's a girl got to do to find fic these days?  i refuse to descend into the pit, and it's no help anyway because you can't look by pairing.  damn it.  i want himym fic (where's all the brotp that i thought would happen post-miracles?) and mi5 fic (ruth and adam if you please), and i never did find any rpf fic with kiefer and mary lynn, and, for all the love that dr horrible's got, someone should be writing that too.  the sg1 fic and the buffy fic is so beautifully easy to find.  good golly, there are websites with freaking novels for them but these other shows....?  where is the fic?  

i'm a voice howling in the wilderness, folks, can't you hear me? waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah..................

Del.icio.us tag surfing/networking is the way to go, if you want to keep up w/ pairings...

for example
http://del.icio.us/tag/barney/robin You can subscribe to the tag and/or add people w/ good barney/robin taste to your network and check it periodically...

I hardly ever venture into the vole pit or most comms, and usually content myself w/ scouring tags of people who wade through the crap for me. ;)

i have to admit even after trying the tags at del.icio.us, i'm trolling in the pit...i guess i have slightly odd pairings (not that you'd know anything about that) and the spooks community is smallish and seems to be devoted to a pairing i kinda can't stand.

the barney/robin stuff is relatively plentiful, though i think i've read most of it already. yours, i re-read periodically just to give myself a lift.

if only i actually wrote the damn stuff i'd take care of it myself...hmmm i never saw the masturbatory analogy there before. fic as vibrator?

i wrote a massive epic brotp fic which basically goes from barney buying scherbatsky a new mat to their being domestically blissed and such. but it totally needs to be revamped. it kinda sucks. thus my fear to post.

plus that one poll totally made me fearful (because who knew that there was such a strong divide in the brotp world about whether barney/robin would get married or have a gene-simmons-esque life?)

listen if you need a beta in order to feel comfortable posting, i'm your man! i know people are hungering for brotp (me especially since i think it is my all time otp and we're talking an extreme love of spuffy as well) but regardless of the "what happens in the end" and the camps that people fall into, it has to be solid good fic (because i've seen some icky stuff i tell you!). if it's good stuff even people who say "aw that'll never happen" will love it cause it's just good writing! so send it my way if you'd like and i'll give it the la_tante once or twice over and we can even chat about it if you want....that can be really helpful. just let me know if you want some help and i'll be there.
