The conclusion I draw from this: People will always love Morgan/Reid best. Also, I was a crazy multi-shipper for Criminal Minds.

The conclusion I draw from this: Spencer Reid really is the Criminal Minds fandom's little black dress. He looks good on everyone.

Top Five by Bookmarks:

1. I Never, Criminal Minds, Morgan/Reid, 2009, 2,627 words, 258 bookmarks.
2. Life is Good, Criminal Minds, 2009, Reid/Rossi, 1,213 words, 42 bookmarks.
3. Good Reason to be Late, Criminal Minds, 2009, Morgan/Reid, 526 words, 35 bookmarks.
4. Alpha Male Syndrome, Criminal Minds, 2009, Morgan/Rossi, 22,775 words, 23 bookmarks.
5. An Excuse to Get Hurt, Criminal Minds, 2009, Morgan/Reid, 4,360 words, 33 bookmarks.

The conclusion I draw from this: My Morgan/Rossi Big Bang fic made a surprising appearance here. I guess that means there are so few Morgan/Rossi fics that people like coming back to reread this one? :D

I just have to say, where the heck are all the Harry Potter fans on AO3? My most popular HP fic is
A Life of Obscurity, which was a 21,096-word Snupin Santa fic. It has 1,499 hits, 70 kudos, 5 comment threads, and 24 bookmarks.

I wonder if this is a result of the ways fandom has changed over the years. My HP fandom involvement was almost entirely on FictionAlley and LiveJournal, and of course, starting in 2007 LJ started going downhill, and I started porting fic over to AO3. I...honestly don't remember what happened with FictionAlley, though it seems like there was some drama that led to people moving to AO3?

My poor little The 100 fanfics get very little attention--probably because I'm such a fringe-shipper. Not many people looking for Bellamy/Jackson or Bellamy/Monty slash out there, I guess. :D

Ooh, interesting. I love seeing people's AO3 stats.

I'm so not surprised that Reid turned out to be the most popular, no matter who he's paired up with.

where the heck are all the Harry Potter fans on AO3?
Good question! I kind of feel like the heydays of HP were over by the time AO3 started, so there wasn't the same kind of hype about new HP fics, maybe? I know I'd moved on to other fandoms by then and these days it's rare that I read a (new) HP fic. I still go back to read some of my old faves now and again, but those are mostly archived on other sites (or not even online anymore). (My most popular HP fic is actually a crossover, and I'm pretty sure most of the people who left kudos are actually fans of the other fandom, or both, and not just HP fans. :p)

And yet HP is second only to Supernatural in total number of works on AO3 (Marvel doesn't count since it's the entire universe not a single work)

But I think that's due to people importing older works (that subsequently don't get a lot of attention except from people specifically looking for this kind of fanfic) or mods importing entire archives. Like when they imported The Quidditch Pitch fanfic last year - that's over 300 fics uploaded in bulk, and it's not the only fic archive/fic website that imported its stories to AO3. And while it's great that these fics are available on AO3 now (in case the old archive disappears from the net), I don't think they generate much foot traffic. So the number of fanfics for one fandom available on AO3 doesn't really say much about its popularity right now.
