Friday Five (big liars edition)

We have reached the second Friday in May. Which, paradoxically, will be followed by the third Saturday. Which I keep forgetting; which is an issue because the third Saturday is when I host the monthly (virtual) Writers' Meeting.

I have reached the point where I am not only counting down the days until I get my second vaccine shot (and when my husband gets his), I am starting to enter into my calendar the dates when various friends will be fully vaccinated, and when we can start maybe actually visiting some of them in person.

Meanwhile, we have this week's Friday Five. This week I bring you: one story that made me tear up, one story that made me chuckle, the top five stories of the week, five stories of interest to queers and our allies, five stories about deplorable people, five stories about science, five stories about science fiction, and five videos (plus one thing I wrote and some notable obituaries).

AO3 and You: Meta Tags, fandoms, and All Media Types

On AO3, when a fandom has multiple different media/divisions within it, there is always a meta tag that encompasses all of the possible aspects of the fandom. Sometimes it's simply the broadest name of the fandom. Sometimes (especially if the fandom is older, or the relationships of fandoms within it are complicated) it will be "[Fandom Name] - All Media Types." Sometimes, if the canon has multiple different names, it will be "[Fandom Name] & Related Fandoms."

Meta tags are a thing the archive does as a way of grouping similar tags. So, for example, if Spock is a character tag, it will be a meta tag for every variation of "Spock"--girl!Spock, genderbent Spock, Spock Prime, and every other variation of the Spock character anyone has ever tagged on the archive will be wrangled such that Spock is the meta tag. Which means that if you click on the Spock tag you will get fics tagged with every type of Spock there ever has been whether or not the "Spock" specific tag is used. If it's just tagged "genderbent Spock" and not "Spock" the work will still show up in the Spock tag. If you click on the genderbent Spock tag, you will get only works tagged with that specific tag, but clicking on the general Spock tag will bring up canon Spock and genderbent Spock and every other Spock anyone's ever tagged.

The same is true of fandoms. If you tag something as only "Star Trek: The Next Generation" it will appear on the works page for both the TNG tag and the general Star Trek tag. If you tag something as only Batman: Under the Red Hood, it will show up on the works page for the Under the Red Hood tag and the Batman - all media types tag. It doesn't hurt anything to add the meta tag, I hasten to add, it's just not adding to the discoverability of your fic.

But from the perspective of the reader, if you like all the different media types and canon divisions, and want to read fic from them, it helps to be able to identify what the meta tag for the fandom is, so you can find all the fic. Here's how!

First, if there's an "all media types" or "& related fandoms" tag, that's easy, that's probably it. (The actual meta tag may be something else, as "all media types" used to be the default but they've changed that, but if so "all media types" will be synned to the actual meta tag, which means they are actually the same tag for all practical purposes and "all media types" will still function as the meta tag.)

But if there isn't one of those, a little tag exploration may be required.

  • Go to a work in a subfandom, and click on the fandom tag. That will take you to the works page, where it will say "1-20 of [size of fandom] Works in [Sub-Fandom Name]".
  • The name of the fandom will be a link. Click on that link, and it will take you to the page for the tag, where it lists alllllll the tags that are connected to it in SOME way or another. If there is a meta tag, there will be a special section labelled "Metatags" and any metatags that fandom belongs to will be listed there.
  • Click on the applicable meta tag, and it will take you to the tag page for that tag.
  • Up at the right-hand corner is a button marked "works" which will take you to the works page of all works tagged with that meta tag or any of its subfandoms. (If there are one or two fandoms in that meta tag you're not interested in, you can filter it out using the filter bar on the right.
