Science-Fiction & Fantasy site
I'd love to see a Science Fiction (& Fantasy?) site. I contributed to one on another site and it was very successful.
On topic: films, books, comics and even video games if the question is about the plot (so no "how to complete a quest").
Since this is a proposal, I welcome your feedback, whether you think this will work or reasons why it won't.

Please indicate if you expect to be a casual or more active participant. If you anticipate primarily asking or primarily answering questions, please indicate that. If you have particular expertise, either in the topic as a whole or specific areas, please say so. We're asking these questions so we can get a sense of the community being built and whether there are important gaps.
Yes, if the community is Sci-Fi & Fantasy or Stories, or a variation of either of these, I will contribute. — Wikis
I expect to contribute casually and occasionally. I have some niche interests where I could answer, and I would have occasional questions. - Monica Cellio

Following the proposal of manassehkatz one could make it about fiction:
"Questions and answers about the the plot/analysis/reception of works of fiction." or something like this. The creation of fiction should be off-topic because it's also ontopic on writing, I guess.

I would suggest broadening to scope to any literature. Some benefits:
- The same kind of people who are interested in science fiction and fantasy are likely to be readers of other books as well
- A broader scope is more in line with other Codidact sites (Languages & Linguistics and Software Development are broader than their equivalents on Stack Exchange)
- If anyone eventually does propose a separate literature site, it would have to have unnecessary overlap with this one, or have a very odd scope (realistic fiction and non-fiction?)
- It doesn't exclude possible contributors who are less interested in science fiction and fantasy (I may be reflecting my own biases; I'm more interested in other genres of literature)
I can see arguments for a site with more limited scope, like Books, Prose, Narrative, but it seems more logical to be as inclusive as possible with a Literature site, since it isn't clear exactly which exactly match the interests and expertise of the potential contributor base.
