AO3 and FFN for me, mostly. Harry Potter, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sarah Jane Adventures, Spooks Code 9, Alex Rider, Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew, CHERUB...

Yeah, I think I need to get a life!

I consider 10% to be quite generous, especially in some fandoms

The same goes for AO3, though I still look there simply because that seems to be the archive of choice these days. AO3, though, seems to be heavy on the smut and slash and gratuitous torture stories (none of which I read), at least in some fandoms, and the writers there often don't define the typical fan fiction descriptors in the manner I am used to, so I've run into several stories there, thinking they were gen, only to find out that they contained content that most definitely WASN'T gen! Or at least, gen according to the definition I was used to!

I do like the little visual cues on that site, though, for content, when the authors use them. I can scan the latest stories by watching the cues and looking for the ones that fit the type of stories that I read, without having to read the description and trying to guess what's in the story!

I still check AO3 and FF.net every day for Hobbit stories, though its very, very rare that I actually open one and even more rare that I actually read it even if I do open it. Few of the new generation of writers write the kind of stories I like to read these days, especially in the newer fandoms, so I'm lucky to find something that I enjoy--and I'm usually very forgiving when it comes to writing ability!

These days, my main two fandoms are Magnificent Seven and the Hobbit.

I also still check Stories of Arda, though only rarely do I see a story I'm interested in there, and I still check Blackraptor for Magnificent Seven fanfiction. Sadly, the Mag Seven fandom has grown very quiet of late, and even worse, many of the old sites are gone. Thankfully, I saved all the fics of my favorite authors to my hard drive (and have it backed up at least twice), so I can still re-read my favorite stories! Some of the best writers, such as NotTasha, have been slowly uploading their old stuff to AO3, but unless I can find them on the wayback machine, many of the older stories are gone.

I went through a New World Zorro kick back in the winter after watching the tv series on DVD, but there aren't a whole lot of stories there. I still occasionally get in the mood for Bonanza and once in a very great while, Big Valley, and here recently, I had a sudden, strong urge to hunt up Hardy Boys fan fiction

Most of my time for the last 6 years was tied up in LOTRO and the characters I had created there. I've got a very diverse character set and have been trying for years to create my own world and a story for these toons, many of which have become as alive to me as most of my favorite characters from other fandoms, but I haven't had much luck in that department. Just like I haven't had any luck in actually completely a fan fiction story in years, either, in any fandom. *sigh*

I'm sure I'm in the minority...but I don't like him. I find him irritating. And I don't find him attractive enough to me to get away with it.

My dad seriously fancies Libby. Every time I visit, he's watching her. He's a proper NCIS fan.

I quite like NCIS Los Angeles though. I like the relationship between Kensi and Marty. And it's hilarious that she's married to his brother in real life. Can you imagine the conversations they must have about snogging both brothers? Best of both worlds for her. LOL
