oh dear Diane, a good and lovely evening to you! would you, could you maybe share what fanfic you like to read and are currently reading and what your favourites are (and/or which fandoms your absolute favourites are)? please and thank you very good much and all the best to you! <3 sorry I am too curious, but I am too curious ;)
I keep meaning to answer this… sorry for the delay.
In terms of fic reading I dip in and out of a lot of fandoms – as over half a century one tends to pick up quite a few of them – but the one I’m most deeply immersed in, these last few years, is BBC!Sherlock. I don’t want to point to specific fics, as that way lies madness (since my ask box routinely then blows up with people who either want to argue my choices or get cranky at me for daring [as a pro] to have or express an opinion [about fanworks]– regardless of having been asked to).
But. In terms of who I read: looking over my bookmarks, and in no particular order whatsoever, here are writers I read regularly, in some cases repeatedly, and whenever they do anything new. (Pardon me for not linking to the names. They’re all on AO3.) A side note: routinely when I get to like something about a writer’s style, voice, or subject matter, I read everything they’ve done. Because I’m greedy.

I think that (as the man says) should be enough to be going on with. :)
