Writing FanFiction: Some Resources

Okay, you may question how much I know about writing fan fiction, considering I have only produced all of about three stories so far. And they were all written this summer. And they are all three stories of mediocre quality. But I digress... 

Anyway, I do know of some awesome fan fiction writing resources to help writers out. I thought I would post a list of links here, in case anyone is interested in checking them out. 

Places to post Fic

 -also known as the pit of voles. But by its ease of use and sheer volume alone, it wins everytime. 
Adultfanfiction.Net - obviously specializes in NC-17 rated fic. (Yay, porn!)
FictionPress.Com - original fiction only (no fan fiction) - has only a few categories, but X-Men and Harry Potter are among them. - smaller archive, but tons of categories - deals in real people fic or actor fic. which is quite naughty, and thus very fun. (not a lot there though)
FictionAlley.Org - Founded after the infamous Cassandra Claire incident. Got kicked off of Post here. (Harry Potter only)
The Wonderful World of MakeBelieve - an older, retro-looking site. But seems to be thriving with lots of fic
The Definitive X-Men Erotica Archive - mostly comic book characters, all NC-17
The X-Verse - a whole community of forums that accepts fanfic - duh! post to your journal, communities, etc. (more on xmen specific stuff below)
