Is there anybody out there?  
Hey, so I'm a woman in the UK, a livejournal noob and I come in peace to this group in search of other Fitz/Fool shippers and general RoTE/Hobb fans to chat with. I'm aware that fanfiction celebrating this author and realm is forbidden...which naturally multiples the appeal somewhat, hah! However, I have found a handful on a certain site, hastily read them all and yet... I am not satisfied. The third instalment of the Fitz and The Fool Trilogy has now been shunted back a few months and so won't be here until 2017. I would write my own fanfic in the hope that sharing it would spark up the embers of conversation and connection in here but that is also forbidden. Anyway, what's up with this livejournal... just about every community I have peeked at seems inactive, and I'm not even sure I'm doing this right. Some groups seem to have been inactive for 11 years. A social network whizz I am not. I'd be grateful to anybody, ANYBODY out there, who could point me in the direction of other networks (except facebook...ew) where Fitz/Fool are alive and well, celebrated and shared in fanwork fairly regularly. In 'Fool's Errand', our Fitz goes to his bench at the edge of the cliff near his cabin by Forge and looks outward over the waves of the sea and reaches out and out and beyond...I've been doing a similar thing for months, online; questing out into cyberspace in search of another who'll be waiting, just waiting to reach back. But alas, it seems I just haven't got the skill...

I haven't read the new series, so I can't help you with that. Communities aren't very active any more, but personal journals are, so maybe you can find people through friending memes (see friend_memes, for example). I hope you get answers from people who have read the latest books. :-)
