Writer's Block!  
The worst curse! I desperately want to finish my WiPs but can't manage to write a thing. So, I decided to read some fanfiction at Archive of Our Own.

Anyway, out of curiosity, I clicked on the Top 10 Tags for characters and was really shocked to find Xander Harris leading with 3644 fics! I knew that Xander was becoming a very popular character in fics, but never thought he'd be the number one tagged character in any archive. Willow, who's in second place, has 1561 fics archived in there. Wow!

Xander? My Xander? I'm so happy yet shocked yet really happy. I'm aware that some of those fics aren't Xander centric but he features in them, but still, WOW!

I was also happy, but not surprised, to find Spander leading in the Top 10 Tags for relationships! My fave character and fave pairing are Number One! Yay!

I hope to finish my newest Spander fic to add it to the archive. I just wish there's a cure for writer's block.

It's nice to see you post! I definitely understand how draining writer's block can be. :( I have a whole score of fics I would like to finish, but can't quite manage.

Xander's always been so popular in fic, though! I'm not surprised he has the most tags.

Huh. When I search character tags, Buffy comes up with almost 6000 stories. But I never could get the hang of AO3's search feature.

Good luck with the writer's block -- it's the worst. Damn those words and ideas! Why won't they come?
