Batman Fanfiction Surveys, also yes hi I do exist

I know I haven't made a real post in about ten years but before we talk about me LET'S TALK ABOUT BATMAN, or rather, let's talk about this very nice French girl, and how you should help her with her research project about Batman fanfiction!

Here, I'll just copy the post she made on batfic the other day.


French research work: Batman fanfic writers/readers wanted!

Hi everybody!

A French student in American media, I am currently writing a research paper on Batman as a cultural icon. This survey will help me focus on different aspects of Batman fandom ; it targets fanfiction writers and readers related to the Batman universe.

Here is the survey (it should take about 5 minutes to complete)

If you are willing to do a more extended interview on your activities, or if you're simply curious about by my work, you are very welcome to get in touch with me. Thank you so much !

And here is a more general survey (again a very short one) on your general attitude as a Batman fan. :)

Please do consider taking her surveys and/or contacting her for a more extended interview. For me, Sociology + Batman + Talking About Fanfic = AWESOME, so I've been interviewing with her via email and having a blast talking her figurative ear off. She asked if I wouldn't mind signal-boosting so here I am. GO GO GO, YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO, spread the word etc. ♥

MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE RANCH... I know, I've been pretty scarce lately. Or, I haven't been posting, but I'm definitely still here, lurking on my Flist every day. The new year thus far has been super busy; I spent all of January and half of February studying for and taking the GRE and applying to grad school and applying for a fellowship that could give me money for grad school and basically not allowing myself to have any fun at all while I did those things. Now I am attempting to resurrect my life from the shambles it fell into while I was busy elsehow. Like, maybe I'll send people their Christmas presents one of these days.

Oh, but I did get into grad school. Yay me!

...That's pretty much all I have to say for myself. HI, HOW ARE Y'ALL? ♥♥
