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...

Hey :)

I've added the first four folk you recommended but I couldn't get the fifth one to work. I'm gonna really enjoy looking at all the fanworks.

And Yes! You should do more RH-themed work, but I say this for completely selfish reasons of course. Your art is pretty intense to look at too it's fair to say.

Amanda Palmer's book is so far pretty excellent, her TED Talk on the same subject is awesome too if you get a chance. http://www.ted.com/talks/amanda_palmer_the_art_of_asking?language=en

I'm about to start making notes from Assassins Apprentice before I try out a test fic of my own. I'd do sketches or paintings if I were blessed with such talent, but frustratingly, I have no natural talent or learned skill at those.

I'll try not to spoil the Fitz and the Fool books for you. We've now got to wait until spring 2017 for part 3 of the series to be published, which is going to drive me batty...

Peace :)
