Is it me, or does someone have their finger on the fast forward button of life? I can't believe it's September already!

For anyone who's wondering, I'm still in love with my Buffy boys, and my Supernatural boys and my SGA boys and the rest of my menagerie, I'm just completely obsessed with the guys in tights and spandex right now, so most of my ficbrain is focussed in that direction. Most. ;)

If any of you are tempted to take the fandom 'research' poll that's out there, I'd advise you to read this, this, this (links taken from [livejournal.com profile] metafandom) and follow a few of the links in those posts before you get drawn into their asshattery. (Not that I'm biased, or anything, but the reason for their 'research' is a contract to write a book entitled: 'RULE 34: WHAT NETPORN TEACHES US ABOUT THE BRAIN.')

[livejournal.com profile] rounds_of_kink is asking for prompts again here. And remember, 'kink' covers a lot of ground, from something as simple as enjoying playing with someone's hair (or someone playing with yours) through to auto-erotic asphyxiation, scat, bloodplay, etc. So go and prompt. You could end up with some delicious new fic that hits your buttons.

Rounds of Kink prompt call


And finally, LJ are offering three extra days of Paid Time to everyone with paid journals for the downtime experienced on Thursday August 6th. You have until September 10th to claim your days. Why wait?

Anyone else watching Dark Blue and wanting Carter to slam Dean up a wall and eat him alive? No? Just me then. *g*

[livejournal.com profile] rounds_of_kink Round 12 prompts are up for grabs!

There's something there for everyone. All of my boys are represented there and many, many more besides. Go and grab one! Grab a handful! Min. word count is 500 words, so no excuses. :D

I have managed to whittle down the 1600+ prompts to a mere 40 that appeal to me. o.O

...and this one's a doozy!

Spike/Xander is losing to Dean/Castiel of SPN and as much as I love the SPN boys, that's breaking my heart. Sherlock Holmes/Dr Watson is losing to Elizabeth Bennett/Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pride and Prejudice too, but Crowley/Aziraphale are beating the pants off Theodore "Laurie" Laurence/Amy Curtis March of Little Women. YAY!

Your boys (and girls) need your support!

It's that time again. Time to search your psyche for those favourite kinks and setups and put them out there so that someone might write them. Due to my current obsession, I spent a couple of hours last night posting BatFlash prompts. I'll probably end up writing at least one of them myself, but hey, a girl can hope, right? :D



PROMPT HERE
for [livejournal.com profile] rounds_of_kink
Round 12

[livejournal.com profile] ship_manifesto is going to be five this year, and to celebrate, the mods (of which I am one) decided to poll the masses to see just who the ultimate pairing might be. To that end, there will be polls running from now to August, and the first one is up, so...

GO VOTE NOW!


Poll closes 10 PM EST on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

I'm sure most of you have already seen posts regarding Amazon's completely unacceptable behaviour.

You have to log in, of course. They don't want just any old riffraff emailing them. ;)

And surprise! Now Amazon has been called to account, they're now crying 'glitch!'. Suuure.

Hi, everyone. I'm still alive, still... around, just very very quiet. I can't believe it's March already and that I'm staring 39 in the face, but at least I have the week off work to cope with getting older. *g*

So, what have I been doing since last I posted? )

Teeny pimp, cos I just gotta:

[livejournal.com profile] ship_manifesto - the place for your "Why I ship this pairing/threesome/moresome" manifestos. All fandoms welcome - live action tv, manga, anime, literature, computer games (Suki, I'm looking at you *g*). Go check out the masterlist! Stake a claim! Share the love! /pimp

One last thing! If you or anyone you know is being inundated with popups, and/or has seen their computer slow down considerably, you may be infected with the Virtumonde/Vundo trojan horse. Spybot, Norton, Symantec, Adaware, AVG (and possibly others) are not catching this. But all is not lost. malwarebytes.org has the solution, and for free! There is a paid, always-on version with automatic updates and scheduled screening, but the freeware version does the job just as well. I diagnosed a customer's computer woes while selling his wife cigarettes and told him to use this prog. He was back in 3 hours with tears of joy in his eyes. Well, okay, he was happy and said thank you, but it works! :D

So, before I pimp this sucker from one end of LJ to the other, I want to ask you all a question. There don't seem to be (m)any comms around who use images as prompts, so would it be better to drop the maximum wordcount and leave the length up to the writer?

Go here and take my single question poll!

Thanks. :D

Hi, everyone! *waves sheepishly* I'm still alive, yay! Not managing to write much of anything worth hitting 'save' for, but I am at least encouraging others at every opportunity, which leads me to the reason for this post - I have created a sister comm to my multifandom baby, [livejournal.com profile] slashthedrabble!

[livejournal.com profile] slashtheimage
is a multifandom slash prompt comm with a difference -
the prompts are images


All fandoms are welcome, including RPS, and a new prompt will be posted every 14 days.

If you don't want to add yet another multifandom comm to your ever-longer flist, you can join the community, choose not to add it to your flist, and then simply track the !prompt tag so that every new prompt post is delivered directly to your inbox.

Contained in that prompt post will also be a digest of links to all responses to the previous prompt, clearly labelled by fandom and pairing.

The first prompt will be posted at midnight EST, October 1st (5am London time, October 2nd)

[livejournal.com profile] slashtheimage
because a picture is worth (upto) a thousand words
darkhavens: (bc mod [literati])
Since the counter was installed on [livejournal.com profile] bloodclaim's main page on 19th of May, 2004, the comm has racked up an impressive one million page loads.

There are no words for the joy and squee-osity this engenders in me.

Thank you to everyone who has joined me in my sandpit, for making the comm such a huge success!

[livejournal.com profile] rounds_of_kink is still looking for prompts. Get yourselves over to the prompt page before the end of April 15th and prompt your hearts out! There's no obligation involved - you don't have to claim any prompts, you don't have to write anything, though you might find a fic you just have to write. ;)

Any Fandom
Any Pairing
Any Kink


Go! Prompt! Now!

A lot of you already know about [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism, the comm that handles reports of text-based plagiarism and maintains a list of known plagiarists, but did you know about their new sister comm [livejournal.com profile] dontstealvideo, which has been set up to handle reports of video-based plagiarism?

If you watch and/or make vids, this is a comm that should be on your flist (just like all you readers and writers should be watching [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism), because you never know when you might be able to help identify a stolen piece of work - it could even be yours.

[livejournal.com profile] dontstealvideo + [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism

don't let them get away with it

On November 30th, [livejournal.com profile] bloodclaim will be five four years old. That both stuns and delights me.

(ETA: It has since been pointed out to me by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] ponders_life, that is is four not five years since the creation of this lovely comm. Apparently I am incapable of simple maths right now. *headdesk* Regardless, the fives 'thon remains in place. next year I'll just have to come up with something else. Yeesh.)

It stuns me to think that it's been five four years since a love of Spander took over my life and made me create a comm, and then had me popping up in the journals of total strangers (and writers I revered!) to nag them into joining and posting their fic in my new happy place.

It delights me to see that there are now over 950 members posting and commenting and keeping the Spander love alive. ♥

We need to celebrate the occasion, with...

The Five Things/Five Years Spanderthon!

A lot of you have probably seen various iterations of the 'Five Things' meme that's been jumping from fandom to fandom. As it's [livejournal.com profile] bloodclaim's fifth fourth anniversary, I can't think of a better theme for the celebration than a flood of Spandery 'Five Things' posts.

Imagine 'Five Things Willow Heard' or 'Five Things Buffy Saw' or 'Five Things That Xander Says Must not Be Used As Sex Toys (Ever Again!)'. It could be 'Five Times Spike and Xander Didn't Have Sex', 'Five Times Xander had To Bail Spike Out (Or Vice Versa)', 'Five Things They Should Never Have Used As Lube'. Or what about 'Five Ways Spike and Xander Might Have Got Together', or 'Five Demons Who Tried To Take Xander Away From Spike', or 'Five Hawaiian Shirts And The Ways Spike Destroyed Them'.

And if the idea of writing Five Things doesn't appeal, we have an alternative Five - Five Years After X Happened - with 'X' being left entirely up to you. It could be anything from 'Five Years After The Destruction of Sunnydale' to 'Five Years After Their First Kiss' to 'Five Years After The Apocalypse' to 'Five Years After Xander Came Back' to 'Five Years After Spike Came Home With that Damn Cat'.


Start thinking in fives, people! And feel free to add more 'fives' suggestions in comments here. You might inspire great things!

So, most of you already know that I am incapable of saying no to [livejournal.com profile] literati. Look no further for evidence than my collection of X-Files Mulder/Krycek fic (or the smaller collection of Harry/Draco fic). So. This pimp's for her and [livejournal.com profile] suki_blue.

[livejournal.com profile] literati and [livejournal.com profile] suki_blue would like to announce the first annual Lucius Malfoy FQF, held at InsaneJournal, at [info]luciusfqf, and co-ordinated at LJ's [livejournal.com profile] luciusfqf.

Read the rules here and then post as many prompts as you can think up here. There is no obligation involved with providing prompts - we want as many ideas as you can provide so as to give the claimants as wide a choice as possible. Non-writers and non-artists are encouraged to prompt too!

Gen, het, and slash are all welcome, and there's even a mixed bag category if you don't want to choose a genre! Movie canon, book canon and AU - anything goes, so long as it's Lucius-centric.

[info]luciusfqf :: [livejournal.com profile] luciusfqf
because Lucius needs love too!

...but I do have other journals to go to if I have to. Feel free to bookmark and/or friend any or all of these, plus Slashverse, mine and [livejournal.com profile] literati's shared website.

me @ GreatestJournal

me @ InsaneJournal

me @ JournalFen

me @ Twitter (where I think I'm going to post mini movie reviews, just for the hell of it. *g*) Also available in syndication! [livejournal.com profile] darkhavenstwitt :P

me @ Vox (also owned by Six Apart, so I'm basically just name-squatting there.)

Right now, I'm not updating any of them (except Twitter), but if/when I get around to setting up Semagic or some other client, I will, honest. ;)

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] superkinkfest has a lot of lovely Supernatural kink prompts going begging (rules || prompt list), and [livejournal.com profile] rounds_of_kink is asking for prompts in a good selection of fandoms here. Go and add some kinky idea to the ones already there!

OMG!

Thanks to a wonderful anonymouse, [livejournal.com profile] bloodclaim is now a permanent account!

Dear anonymouse, thank you so much! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

This is just another reason why I love fandom so much. {{{smishes you all}}}
darkhavens: text icon: 15 m/m pairings in dk purple, with paler txt darkhavens and even paler txt multifandom ho. (pimp hat [me])
The posts are open again at [livejournal.com profile] slashfest, so get prompting!

Don't worry that they're asking for a commitment from you, because they're not. Right now they want your ideas, your requests, your prompts (M/M only). (The commitment bit comes later when they open the lists so you can all go claim a story or three to write. ;))

[Requests A-G] [Requests H-R] [Requests RPS-Z]


You can post up to three prompts, though they must be for three different pairings/characters. They can all be from the same fandom (ie, you may request Spike/Xander, Spike/Angelus and Xander/Giles (or even Spike/Xander, Spike/Xander/Oz and Spike/Xander/Angel) in the Buffy Fandom but you may not make 3 Spike/Xander requests).

READ THE RULES FIRST

I'm still struggling with my recaltricant muses, but that hasn't stopped me signing up for the multi-fandom [livejournal.com profile] 14valentines and also for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang, which has a minimum word count of 20,000. I'm hoping the threat of multiple deadlines will once again work their magic. *prepares to make sacrifices to any and all vaguely interested deities and demons*

I am wilfully resisting the urge to sign up for [livejournal.com profile] superpornsunday, which is also multi-fandom, if any of you out there feel the urge to write porn and post it next weekend. *pokes you*

[livejournal.com profile] miz_thang88 has announced that she needs judges and a co-owner for the Lie to Me Awards (Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel fandom) -- categories here for sites, fanfiction, and art in a number of categories -- for fic, we've got character-focus, time period, genre, length, in addition to the standard pairing categories. It's neat to have award sites with a wide-ranging array of categories in addition to the more specific character and pairing-focused awards sites, so if you can participate, please do help keep this awards site (and other sites) running. (para snagged in entirety from [livejournal.com profile] entrenous88)

And lastly, the Sunnydale Fanart Awards - the award site for Buffy and Angel fanart.
Round 3 open now!
darkhavens: text icon: 15 m/m pairings in dk purple, with paler txt darkhavens and even paler txt multifandom ho. (pimp hat [me])
It's time for another round of [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove, where you get to pick from a choice of eleven different themed sets of prompts and then write fic, in any fandom you choose, for one prompt a week for five weeks.

If a set of prompts inspires you go and sign up, mentioning prompt set, fandom and pairing/character.

In the hopes that the pressure doesn't make my brain explode but instead inspires me to actually write something, I have signed up for one set of prompts - 7) The Five Elements -- either Asian - Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water or Western - Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Aether.

I have, however, signed up to write those prompts in the following fandoms:

Stargate Atlantis - Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Spike/Xander
Supernatural - Sam Winchester/Dean Winchester

Yes, that's right - same set, different boys.

*holds gun to head of muse* And I will write them all, come hell or high water. *crosses toes*
