The question about reading fic in fandoms you don't know was a hard one to answer for me, because I do, but not very often, and usually only if it's written by a writer whose work I love or recced in a way that makes it sound interesting enough that I'm willing to try reading it as original fic. So it's not something I do regularly enough to feel like I should tick those boxes on the poll, but it is something I do.

On Tumblr I usually find new fic via the character or pairing tags. I still read fic on ffn, but generally only via recs anymore -- it's not a fic-quality thing (AO3 has a similar dreck-to-quality ratio anymore, in my experience) but because I prefer the AO3 search interface and find it easier to find good fic that way. AO3 has been my first stop for years when I get into a new fandom or need new fic to read. Tumblr is increasingly coming up behind it as a second choice, but since there's no easy way to search for fic specifically, it's a hit-or-miss kind of thing and really depends on how people in the fandom typically tag stuff.
