Sporking

From UnknowableWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Sporking is the fine art of not-so-subtly mocking badfic written by fangirls and Suethors. Sporks are blog entries usually written and posted to a community on Livejournal such as Deleterius or Mary_Sues. One of the main differences between Sporking and flames is that flames are usually given as reviews to the writer, and sporks are usually kept confined to the community.

The term sporking is possibly best described by a comic on Queen of Wands, featuring the Grammar Nazi and a TV commercial advertising the spork, a device to pluck out one's eyes after being plagued by atrocious grammar or spelling. (Please be warned that the link to the comic contains graphic language and a reference to Oedipus Rex.) Comic here.
