First Kinkmeme

The first Watchmen kinkmeme was established September 9, 2008 on spam_monster's Livejournal. Some fic posted on the kinkmeme was reposted from plus4chan's /coq and /pco boards and was labeled as such.

Major themes of the first kinkmeme were Rule 63 versions of the main characters, Mothman/Dollar Bill, BDSM, high school and zombie AUs. Also popular were captcha prompted fic, fic based on the captcha system still in use at the time on LiveJournal.
