Welcome to Sporkwell!

Spork (spôrk)

A trademark used for a plastic eating utensil having a spoonlike bowl and tines. Sarcastic mockery of fanfic that has greatly exceeded WTF status. Native language of visitors to Fanfiction[dot]net, although has been found to be spoken throughout the Web.

Welcome to Sporkwell!

This is a community dedicated to the sporking of fanfic written about the now-deceased WB-cum-UPN television drama, Roswell.

Read a really bad piece of fanfic lately? Feel the need to vent or impale your head upon a telephone pole? Share the pain here. After all, crack is hard to quit.


When posting to the community, please give a link to the badfic in question and apply LJ-Cuts to the actual sporking. If you're not sure how to do this, contact one of the maintainers and we'll let you know. Also, make your post friends-only so that only members of the community can read the entry, otherwise what's the point of moderation?

Have you WRITTEN a really badfic? Feel free to submit it here, but follow the same rules as above and please include a rating and any appropriate warnings.

IMPORTANT: Just because a story is of a fandom or a certain lifestyle (slash, BDSM, etc)that you do not like does NOT automatically make it a bad fic.

- Do not link to LiveJournal badfics, as all it takes is one oversensitive LJ user to complain and a community can be shut down.

If, horror of horrors, you find that one of your fics has been posted here, try not to take it personally. We're not attacking you, just your writing. Feel free to defend yourself, however. We love debates.

And finally, when posting, just so we know you've read the rules, please make the subject: "I can't breathe, until you're resting in Hell with me."

Request to join HERE. This is a private community and primarily invitation only, so if your request to join is rejected, don't take it personally. It's probably just because we don't know you or recognize your LiveJournal username.

"I can't breathe, until you're resting in Hell with me."
That quote suddenly explains to me that driving need I felt to introduce my friend, D, to Rosfic. Wow. I never understood it so clearly before! It's like you've brought me my epiphany for the year.

Btw, I LOVE that banner y'all are using!

Why, thank you, dahling. I made it. I was going for funny, but I think it actually turned out kinda cool. You definitely need to get D over here and read this.

I think I'll wait until she's read a lot of GOOD fanfic before I expose her to all the bad stuff. I wouldn't want her to run away screaming quite yet!

I was digging around for your home number earlier today. I've got your cell # saved, but I hate using up those minutes for no reason. I wanted to check in with you to see how things are going with you as far as your job and health go. Give me a hollar one of these days! We'll be out on Saturday and Sunday nights, but home the rest of the weekend.

Finally! Somewhere to go to vent on the hell that is bad fic! Can't wait to see what pops up here...

LOL!...this is just brilliant! In fact about 70% of the Rosfics I've read should be here...That's why once I've found a great author, I'll just stick to his fics.

I promise to bring some WTF rosfics as soon as I can.

I wonder if this community is still active? If so, I want to read the badfic...
