The C/A fandom is filled with a lot of amazing people imho. If you're a member of Stranger Things, then you've probably seen us snark or vent but under that, there is respect and love. And since this fandom is filled with so many amazing people, I have to spotlight one today. Most people here know her because well, she is awesome. damnskippytoo
Now, why did I pick her? Because this project, I couldn't do it with out her. She is the current Archivist at JustFic and from the looks of it, it's not the easiest job in the world. And like all things fandom, she only gets paid in fandom respect and love. I think some people don't realize that she has to code the stories, put them into the archive, make sure they are linked in all the right places. I can't imagine that is the fastest thing to do. There is a backlog of stories pages deep on the message board and with people always commenting on stories, it can push old ones to the front, etc. I know she tries to be as democractic as possible, doing the oldest stories first. It must take a lot of time to go back and find the oldest, or if she keeps a track, what if someone comments on an older story and it comes to the front of the pages. See? Not easy.
But when I started this project, she also told me if I found dead links or links that went to the wrong story, to tell her. I have found a few and you know what, she always fixes them like that. I send the email usually before bed and by the time I wake up, I have an email from her, telling me that it's all fixed. How is that for made of win?
Aside from being the Archivist at Stranger Things, she's also a writer, a fanartist, and overall a really great person. I know that if I ever need a gif, she is there to help me. I can bug her about tutorials for her icons, her videos. She's never been anything but nice and accomodating. Not only that, but she has other interests outside of fandom that are well, relevant to my interests. LOL I'm very proud to call her my friend. :)
