99% no-comment pinch hit

This was the first time I wrote a pinch hit and I am wondering if it's particularly common for a pinch hit to garner NO comments (well, the mod of the exchange commented, but that was the only comment). I had already completed my gift!fic assignment for this fic exchange when I saw that another participant was going to be left without a gift because their assigned giver had simply vanished. I had never done a pinch hit before, but I didn't want to see a fellow participant go giftless and there had been no pinch hitter sign-up, so I volunteered. I'm not a comment slut -- I don't even pay much attention to my AO3 stats -- but I admit to having been unpleasantly surprised that, aside from the mod of the exchange, there was not even ONE comment, not even from the person who was named as the gift!fic recipient.

This experience has left me wondering if there is something about pinch hits that makes them less likely to attract comments...or if this was the worst fic I ever wrote, seeing as how it's the first one to be 99% uncommented-upon.

Here Comes "The June Something"





Brought to us by squidgiepdx:

Here are the questions for 2021's The June Something. Post your responses at squidgie's DW or in your own blog and with a link to your blog post at squidgie's DW.

~*~*~

Day 1: What's changed about your fandom life in the last 365 days?

Day 2: You've got your OTP, you have to throw a third into the mix (from the same fandom), creating an OT3. Who is the OTP, and in your opinion, why would they make a perfect third for them? Bonus question: What about adding a third to your OTP from a different fandom? Who and why?

Day 3: What's a favorite, or at least memorable fandom meeting/interaction that you've had?

Day 4: What are the origins of your penname/username?

Day 5: Compare and/or contrast your very first fandom obsession and your very latest fandom obsession.

Day 6: What's a fandom that you wish had a bigger following?

Day 7: What's the longest time you've been in a fandom. Not necessarily your oldest fandom, but a fandom that you started and still continue to read/write/create content for in some way.

Day 8: Crack!fic - We all know it. What's your opinion of it, and if you want, show us an example.

Day 9: Drop the cast of a fandom you follow into a reality tv show - who/what/why? If you need a list of reality TV show examples, click here.

Day 10: Drop your OTP or small ensemble from the fandom they're in into another fandom - how do they do?

Day 11: What would make you leave a fandom, or prevent you from getting into it in the first place?

Day 12: Who is someone that you share the most fandoms with?

Day 13: Squicks - What are some things that squick you in fandom - not necessarily "icky", though it can be. From anything involving blood, to bad grammar.

Day 14: What fandom broke your heart?

Day 15: What fandom pairing took you over like Venom took over Eddie?

Day 16: Do you have a fandom that you follow - either regularly or casually - with little to no knowledge of canon?

Day 17: Do you prefer art, fic, or vids? Why? Bonus: If someone was to give you a fandom gift, what format would it be?

Day 18: Recall a time when two of your fandoms collided, at least in some way. For example, a song that you fell in love with from one fandom showed up in a second fandom.

Day 19: What is something that you associate with a character in fandom, but aren't sure if it's canon or fandom?

Day 20: A random character shows up at your doorstep at dinnertime saying a friend sent them. Why did your friend send that person, how does it go, and what do you talk about?
