What is idfic?
Fic that tickles your id! Maybe it's the fic you make up before you fall asleep. Generally speaking, idfic is that sweet spot where the answer to the question "Is this too filthy/sappy/wrong/just plain weird?" is a resounding "No!”
We are not defining what content qualifies as idfic. Your story doesn't have to be porny, though it may be.
