To my f'list friends of a fanfiction bent:

What kind of fandoms do you prefer - 'living' or 'dead'? Would you rather there by new information and happenings in your fandom or it be a finalised deal for the foreseeable future?

Living. It makes the fandom more active, and the fandom can keep on expanding and perhaps even remain surprising.

Ooh, hard one. I have a lot of fandoms, so there's a good mix there, and both types have their good qualities.

"Living" fandoms are more active, so there's always new information, developments, possibilities, etc. to come. You can hold out hope that your (crack) pairing will turn into definite canon in future installments; or at the very least, you can always scour new material for anything in favor of your pairing, no matter how small.

For the inactive ones, though, there's a finite amount of information, which can make things easier--I was about to pick up on a half-finished PotC fic when the sequel came out and kinda ruined how I felt about the fic's storyline (though DMC was totally worth it :P). There's not a ton of stuff to keep up on, you don't have to worry about spoilers all over the place or race to the store to grab the new manga the second it comes out so you won't feel left behind. However, one problem with "dead" fandoms is that often they're really, really small, limited to just one movie or series (like A Knight's Tale), and there's just not a lot out there for it, very few like-minded people to discuss it with.
