Ten minutes of your time for my thesis? [Jun. 23rd, 2008|12:49 am]
Carnivale Fan Fiction


Dear fanfic authors,

first of all I’m sorry if OT posting isn’t allowed in this community, but there’s no other way for me to do this; just delete this if it isn’t appropriate.

I’m a fanfic reader and occasional fanfic writer myself, so what did I pick for my thesis in communication sciences? Fan Fiction, of course. I designed a survey to find out more about our writing habits and media use; it takes about 10 minutes to complete.

If you could go here and fill it out, I’d be forever grateful. Of course I’ll publish some of the results at my journal in about a month or two, so you’ll know what happened with your answers.
The survey is completely anonymous; I have no way of finding out who gave which answers.

Please, please help a fellow fan out. It’s only ten minutes for you; it’s a very important part of my work for me.

This has been cross-posted like crazy, and I'm sorry for spamming you guys, I'm just a little desperate, too.

Since this isn't an spam advertisement kind of thing, I don't mind it being posted. I took the survey, hope it helps!

Re: mod of this oh so quiet community here

thank you very much! :)
(psssst: I was interested in getting into the fandom a while back, but then the DVDs were awfully expensive... is there anything you would compare it to so I can try to decide if I should buy the first season?)

I never watched Twin Peaks so I can't compare too well, but it was VERY frequently compared to that show. It also has always reminded me a lot of Todd Browning's movie Freaks.

It's really a great show. Sadly it fell apart a bit at the end of the series, if I'm being honest. I suspect that's why the fandom has really quieted down since it ended.
