In the spirit of continuing to make Autostraddle March Madness more interactive, I’ve reached out to some fanfic writers to offer their thoughts on what makes their favorite subjects worth shipping.

Riese recaps last night’s episode of Law & Order SVU starring Kathy Griffin as a lesbian activist — not so bad, even without the Mariska Hargitay lesbian kiss (we’ve got VIDEO!) Also; Tegan & Sara acoustic videos, Lohan’s memoir, Johnny Weir on Joy Behar, Lady Gaga in Cosmo, Adam Lambert in Sydney and a Dana Delaney headline way more offensive than SVU.
