I've been thinking about how all of the fic I read lately is about boys.  I'm feeling pretty glum about it.

(These fandoms I've been following, guys, they are killing me with the woman-hate.  SPN and Merlin and Sherlock and their shiny, sexy boys and their dead or evil or broken (or what's maybe worse - uninteresting) women.  It becomes so easy to pretend those dead women don't matter, because they don't matter in canon, and they don't matter in a lot of the slash out there, and all that woman-hate is creeping into my brain, and I've got to start saying no to that shit.)

I had a whole rant written about my genderfail shame, but I think a more productive approach would be to actually go read some fic about women.  Maybe renew my reading of [livejournal.com profile] where_no_woman  and [livejournal.com profile] femslash_today , then work my way back to some old-school Xena fic.  But I also want to find new characters and fandoms and stories, ones I haven't experienced yet.  And I do know that if I actually start looking for it (instead of waiting for it to show up on the rec lists and comms that I've been following), I will find it.

So I'm wondering, f-list, where do YOU go when you want to read about female characters?  Which fandoms and comms and authors produce really juicy female-centric and feminist fic?
