Introducing ... THE LOST LIST

Well, I did it. I started yet another Lost comm. Here it is: thelostlist.

ETA: I think I've hit on the solution. Of course, it is after midnight and it may not seem so brilliant in the morning, but here's the general idea.

What I'd like it to be is THE go-to place for Lost fic, an archive of great fics, not just about Jack/Sawyer (which of course, we love) but where readers can quickly find fics by character or theme.

But I'm not sure how we should do this. Have people sign up to be an "expert" on each character and then come up with, say, 5-10 fics on that character? Free-for-all? Master posts where people comment with, say, favorite Driveshaft fics? Or some magical combo? One of the key components that will set it apart from other rec comms is that yes, people will be able to submit their own fics. What do you think?

How should we do this thing? (Check as many as you like):

People volunteer to be experts on a character and compile a comprehensive list of fic
Anyone can submit fic to a master post on that theme
People post as often as they see fit - everything is organized by tags
People can make requests, such as "Genderswap" fic or whatever.
Some other brilliant approach, which I shall explain in comments

How about if each author submits 5 to 10 of their fics, what they think are their best ones..only because you know that if someone says they are an expert there will be someone that says they aren't, plus I fear that some people will have there fics left off the list and then it would seem a little cliquey..which could cause some problems.

Hmm, I certainly don't want it to be cliquey, which is why I wanted people to be able to submit their own fics. I don't know, maybe it's too wide-ranging and ambitious to actually work!

It is ambitious but totally and completely worth it, I totally thank you for that.

It's good to have a resource/place to just go through and find some great stories for a character and pairing you like, I swear I only meant cliquey if one person compiled a master list of their own favorites of their favorite authors, not if everyone submitted their own fics, but if one person takes everyones links of their own stories, that's a lot of work and that deserves much MUCH praise..seriously, you'd rock HARD just for that.
