Top Ten in a Variety of Categories

(As of 11 June 2018)

My hosting service stopped giving me stats, so I decided to give a variety of options.
How do you define popularity? By how many people are reading a particular item?--the top ten in hits at Archive of Our Own (AO3) and views on Fanfiction.net (FFN) are listed. By people who drop a quick kudo or favorite a story? Those top ten are here too. By those who stop to leave a longer comment or review? Yep, got those. And then there's the stories that may not get hit a lot, but when they do, they have a large percentage of kudos or reviews. Those are here too--you see less repeating across columns with these. AO3 and FFN tend to have some areas of divergence, as you'll see, so there are a lot of stories listed here. In the case of a tie, all tied stories were assigned same ranking. Have fun exploring!
