is a small sporking
community on LiveJournal
. It was originally a solo sporking community for Das Mervin, a LiveJournal user most famous for her breakdown of the Twilight
series. Over time, it has evolved to accept sporkings from all of its members. The sporkings cover a range of fandoms and styles. This also includes professional works. There are currently a small number of active sporkers on Das Sporking.
This community is mostly known for being very analytical in its approaching to bad fiction, and for covering a variety of professionally published works as well as fanfiction. Jokes and snarking take a backseat to literary analysis, though they are far from absent.
It is also notable for being in depth. Most sporkings double the word count of the fanfics they are focusing on. A number of Unfortunate Implications
that are glossed over in other sporkings of the same material, in particular Twilight
and Fifty Shades of Grey
, are explored in detail there.
