How did you find the F+?
« on: April 27, 2013, 12:55:39 am »
In the vein of the username thread/my recent questions in the general F+ questions thread, here's a thread for y'all to talk about how you stumbled across this podcast! Should be interesting to see what corners of the internet we all arrived from.

In my case, I found it through guest reader Zarla. She had done a post promoting the podcast with a list of favorite episodes over on Livejournal, and since I was tangentially aware of Portaxx as well through her collaborations with Zarla, I decided to give it a listen. My first episode was the Allrecipes one, and, well... what can I say? I was hooked.

Now it's your turn.

Through watchful-entity, around the time of the multiple systems episode.

It's been so long I can't be sure my memory is correct, but I think someone one SA linked to the dollfucker episode in one of the dollfucker threads. I've been a fan ever since.

Someone (maybe Portaxx?) linked me to it on the old PoE Can't Aim TF2 server.  I'm an old PoE hand but I don't think I ever heard about it over there.

I found it through watchful-entity; specifically through a post where an asexual evangelist was complaining about all the erasure and stuff in the Aces and Cakes episode.

Icarus linked the Creepypasta episode on Tumblr, and I decided to give it a listen because I know Zarla so I knew there'd be at least one familiar voice on the podcast. Haven't looked back since!

I think it was through Lou Reads. The first episode I ever heard was "Weighty Companion Dudes" and by the time Jimmyfranks's second reading rolled around, I was hooked.

I saw a link to The Best Crowning Podcast of Awesome Greatness on one of the SA TV Tropes threads and quickly realized that The F Plus was much more relevant to my horrible-stuff-on-the-Internet-related interests than about 90% of SA. So I immediately switched to wasting all my time on TFP instead of SA, which is nice since I can do other stuff while listening to podcasts as opposed to reading forum post after forum post. That would've been around this time last year, roughly when The Ace and Cakes first aired, so it's probably my F Plus anniversary soon. Yay me?

Cuddlesquid brought me here.

Through force, through allure, what? Come on man, details.

A year ago there was an IRC chatroom called #fimfiction that revolves around MLP: FIM fanfiction. A newbie by the name of 'toanoradian' asked about shipping scenarios that fit this cool, almost emotionless pony character. The discussion then naturally progresses to sex. Another user mentioned that the pony is clearly demisexual and then another different one posted a link to this podcast called The F Plus.

So...thanks for making me procrastinate on that fanfiction, guys.

I was on POE back before The F Plus started but wasn't really aware of it because my computer sucked and I couldn't play TF2 on it. Portaxx linked me to it a couple of times but I didn't really pick it up until I was linked to the TVTropes episode on a Something Awful thread. I started to really get into it in the fall of last year when I started my current job and got a new iPod with enough memory to store both my massive music library and podcasts. THen Ballpit was created an it filled the POE-shaped hole in my life.

Same here, except I was obsessive-compulsive about it and started from the beginning.  It must have had something to do with Pokegrrls, though, because I remember my snark group actually started a reading of the material at the same time that the F+ ep came out and went "Oh shit, we're gonna look like we're biting".  We decided to go through with it anyway because there was plenty there to work with, but recording and time issues killed the project.  It's a shame, I was really looking forward to reading the Psydyke line.
