Short fic comm?

So, I was thinking that lately I don't have as much time as I'd like to read fics. But if it's a short one, then I'm much more likely to read it. Since most fic is posted sans word count, should there be a comm just for short Lost fics? Or just for short fics, in general? (Tags could sort out the fandoms.) Or is there already one and I just don't know about it?

Your opinions, please. I'm thinking it should be fics under, say, 1000 words.

And another random poll just cuz:

So... a fic comm just for short fics?

Ooh, great idea!
5(20.0%)
Yep, and it should just be for Lost
4(16.0%)
Yep, and it should be for all fandoms (or a select few)
3(12.0%)
Hmm. Seems kinda pointless
1(4.0%)
Ticky!
4(16.0%)

CRAH-ken ;p

I like the idea of a short fic comm - mainly because I really like drabbles (reading and writing them) and they tend to be the kind of thing people often don't post to fic comms because they feel like they're too short. Or something. (urgh. 4am, Lynn's brain no work good.)

I think it should be multi-fandom though, because then I can post to it because it's often the case that a first attempt at a new fandom is made via a drabble or something <1000 words so, again, it would give people a place to post to that might gain them more readers than just their flist.

lostquickfics!

You are welcome to take the "quick fics" idea and make it multifandom, with my blessing. I am really mostly interested in Lost fic so I figured it's best if I keep this comm to that. But there *should* be a multifandom one! You're so right about how people dip their toes into new fandoms with the shorter fics. ;)
