Gah, I know I haven't been around for ages. Basically I've had some shit going down (rah rah, RL, stupid stupid) and I haven't really had a lot of time for fannish activities. Things are a bit more stable now, so here's hoping they'll stay that way for a while. I did have to drop out of the snarry_games
, which totally sucked the most out of everything, but now that I'm back around again I guess I can enjoy reading without having to compare everything to mine! I'm in a little bit of a funny place with Snarry at the moment though, but I guess we'll see how that goes. A couple of things:
&diams I feel awful because I haven't had time to pimp the hd_worldcup
! Not that everyone hasn't been pimping it like mad anyway, but specifically I need to point you all toward Team EWE's contributions
. Please to be reading, voting (high!) and generally enjoying as much as possible. There've been a huge number of great fics in this fest but I think we have some real winners in our team. Also, if any of you want to have a go at guessing which one I wrote, I'd totally love to hear what you think. A clue: think about my usual style, and then the complete opposite of that. I pretty much tried to do something completely different which I think turned out quite well. Also, if you haven't yet, please take the time to check out raitala
's amazing Team EWE illustrations.
They really are
as amazing as everyone has been saying. :-)
&diams This is going to sound strange, but does anyone know of any recs for newbies to the Star Trek fandom? A sort of "starter pack", if you will. Specifically Kirk/Spock. My geeky friend has totally gotten me into the original series and I'd love to read some fanfiction but it's such an enormous fandom that I don't even know where to begin. This
is definitely keeping me entertained for the time being but I can tell I'm going to need something more substantial before long.
&diams I've noticed, whilst going through some old posts, that there are quite a few random comments which I (inexplicably) haven't replied to. There's probably a special day or meme devoted to this but I'm just going to go on through and try to answer as many as I can - don't be surprised if you suddenly get a random reply to comment you left ages ago. *g*
&diams No idea what Nick Cave is doing in his new video, ( More News From Nowhere.Collapse )
&diams Turns out my sweet little darling baby kitten is actually a BOY. When we bought her/him, the owner told us very confidently that she/he was a little girl. It's been pretty hard trying to remember to call her him. She/he's also a bit confused about her/his name at the moment, because as a girl, she was Mutzi, but as a boy he's Jemaine. Probably should have tried to think of something that sounded more similar.
&diams So, yeah. I think that's all. Here's hoping I can be around more now. :-)
