I found the fic deposits.

The task of seeking out fic in a new fandom is always an interesting one. I try to put it off as long as possible -- wait until I've built up a tolerance to the canon footage so that when I start jonesing before new material arrives, I have an untapped source -- in part because it's tough when you jump in cold turkey, without established friends who write or rec it. Which site has the best offerings? Is it infested with slash and/or porn? And most importantly, can people write in character? How much badfic will you stumble through before you find the good stuff, and will your spirits last that long?
