If You Love Our Fandom, Please Respond!

Okay, here's the deal.

There's a community called crack_van which reccomends fanfiction in vrious fandoms. It's highly monitored, with one person per fandom per month getting posting access and only certain fandoms having permanent Rec status, all others getting one-month stints as a "Tiny Fandom".

I am aparently the first and only person to request driving the crack van for the Matrix Trilogy, and so the Mod is going to relegate The Matrix as a tiny fandom unless I can find 8 to 10 other people (at least) willing to post Matirx Fic reccomendations at least once a week for a month per person. (They also have monthly crossover and Vid recs, too).

Why should you care?

Well for one thing, I have stared reading and writing in THREE new fandoms since I started reading crack_van regularily. Who's to say it wouldn't work for other people with The Matrix? Read enough good fic in a fandom, and the muse starts flowing.... We could have new writers and readers showing up, and that would be a Good Thing, IMHO.

For another thing, this is the chance to pimp your favorite fic (provided you didn't write it) and if enough people sign on, there's a chance your Fic will get reccomended especially if you know who to bribe. ;)

If you're willing to take a turn driving the crack_van down the rabbit hole, please say so here.

I apologize if this request violates any of the rules for this community, but I figured people would understand.

As a side note, I will still be reccomending Matrix Fic even if I don't get enough volunteers, and I'll be writing the Matrix Fandom Overview either way. (Samples of Overviews for other fandoms can be seen here.) I'll be reccomending this community as a source for fic in that overview, if that's okay.
