There is a whole lot on Tumblr, and I'd say Tumblr + Twitter (as a sort of aggregate, each handling a somewhat different info stream) is currently as close to the fandom happening place as LJ ever was, which was always extremely variable by fandom/fan type. Tag streams rather than comms serve as gathering points, and that means you have to be a lot more plugged in to the key terms of a fandom to find it. I suspect the cyclical nature of conversation-by-reblog+addition has front lined a lot of fancrazy that the LJ platform and platform-culture channeled into locked posts, but I see a lot of the same post-it-to-your-journal type stuff going by on my dash.

I think there was a window when AO3 could have stepped in, but at the time they didn't have coders up to designing the platform and now I think there really is too much fragmentation in how different fan sets expect their platform to operate for such a polarized project to draw more than their core constituency.
