If you were recently sucked into a fictional universe and need employment, or if you moved to a fictional universe because you thought there might be a better job market there, Topless Robot has a list of high-risk sci-fi/fantasy careers you might want to avoid. “Red-shirt” only comes in at #4.

Cracked.com (always NSFW) has a geek-heavy piece on how being an obsessive fanboy can gain you fame.
