so yeah: in the middle of my sailor moon obsession somehow i fell right back into kitty/pete, which is somewhat unsurprising since i got into sailor moon BY PLAYING PETE WISDOM (long hilarious story not telling it right now kthx) WHO WAS DATING PRINCESS AMETHYST OF GEMWORLD AT THE TIME??? and i'm on a fic trawl, and like... so...
the weird thing is looking on ff.net and literally only finding 65 fics with him in them? and on ao3 only 67? and i remember reading SO FUCKING MANY MORE THAN THAT between 1998 and 2005ish...
...and then i remembered that all of what i read was basically, you know, on private or personal archives. in fact most of it was on fonts of wisdom, which is now only available at archive.org.
the terrible thing is, as much as i want to go back and wallow, i also want *new content*. content that includes MI-13. content that includes kitty being a teacher at the mansion. (um, not content including the fuckery that the MU has apparently become after they merged 616 with ultimate and whatever else?? unless someone finds a way to make any of that mess make sense, which is cool, i'll totally read that.)
the REALLY terrible thing is that i have a feeling that if i want to see a resurgence in pete and kitty fics i will have to write a bunch myself to get the ball rolling, and getting the ball rolling might also be really hard because i have lost touch with most of my peeps from that era of my fannish existence, and it seems the community has fallen to bits for many many reasons.
also i'm in the middle of two multipart sailor moon fics :|
THE POINT IS I HAVE TOO MANY IDEAS AND NOT ENOUGH FINGERS ON KEYBOARDS
