Subject: It /would/ be nice to have more Legendaries that aren't just bad smut. (Also: 'A Tangled Web'?)

Some of the old Legendaries* aren't smutty, but I think almost all the recent ones are just edgy lemons (or other citrus as appropriate - there's a kumquat joke in here somewhere). There's a lot of departments in the PPC!
(* I would render this list as 'legolas by laura', 'My Immortal', 'Celebrian', and 'My Inner Life', of which two aren't smut; Marrissa Picard also predates the modern 'Legendary Badfic' concept.)
On which note... last year, Nesh found A Tangled Web, the badfic which broke the Department of Implausible Crossovers. I'm not positive it meets the criteria, but I feel like it might deserve to be grandfathered in for Jay and Acy's opinion of it. (Also, it was last updated 11 hours ago, which is insane for a fic spawned in 2002.)
