I had a feeling you would know the historical ins and outs -- I'm not well informed about that and so just see what's in front of me.

I was pretty sure that there must be huge repositories of stories for fandoms like X-Files, since there is so much electronic real estate for the HP world, but it didn't occur to me that their participation in fanfiction.net was so affected by their "birth date" as a fandom (pre or post ff.n being established)

But now that you lay it out, it makes perfect anthropological sense that a fandom would continue to use the mechanisms they had already developed -- a fandom is a culture like any other.

At some point, though, in your copious free time, I'd be glad to hear anything you had to say about what elements seem to make a particular series a good candidate for fanfiction.
