1. Yuletide noms closed this morning - next up comes the fun! The full tag set, letters appearing, making requests! \o/

(And guess what? I nommed the 1968 TV Dracula as my third fandom. Just as I was about to repent my folly, some nonnie commented on the fandom promotion thread to say that they liked the look of it and that was all the encouragement I needed. So I will have three impossible fandoms on my request list. /sheepish)

But here we go again, folks! *bounces*

2. [livejournal.com profile] het_reccers is having an anniversary Trope Bingo, so I requested a card, because that should make me, you know, actually rec something during the month. Cut for image & mildly NSFW trope names )

3. I made a post to one of my comms - [livejournal.com profile] dw_allsorts (the Doctor Who mini-table prompt comm*) asking for suggestions for prompt tables. I wondered if anyone here would have any suggestions. There's more details over at the post, and there isn't a desperate need - it's just that I know everyone is so different and I'm very aware that all of these tables were made by me, so I thought it might be quite nice to have some by other people? If anyone has any ideas, or would have joined in if there was a table like x, now's your chance! (Also, if anyone would like to suggest a theme for a table/tables, that would also be cool. I didn't think of that when making the post).

4. I wrote a thing for [livejournal.com profile] runaway_tales the other day! And so what, you cry? Well, it was not for Heroes of the Revolution, it was for The Pirate Queen (another of the three fake shows I did at the time, only one that had current actors and was In Space! With Pirates! (Well, Pirates-ish.) I had some thoughts about it, so I might occasionally write some bits for it? I don't know, but there's this, which I did hastily for the Flavour of the Day:

Beneath My Dignity (All ages, 444 words. Lio Hadwin, Arkryte II.) Lio gets lumbered with his nemesis on an away trip.

* It is an awesome comm! You should join! I'm not biased; I didn't make it... Oh, wait, I am, and I did. ;-D

1. [livejournal.com profile] dw_guestfest is now over! You can find the Masterlist here. (Please do check out the fic if you haven't already - it really has been brilliant all round!)

Given that I decided to count it as a success if I had even half a dozen people sign up, with say even 3 or 4 fics, I'm thrilled that we wound up with 18 fics featuring 20 minor characters (some of whom don't seem to have ever been written for before), I really am. We only lost one or two people to rl along the way, and the comm's on amnesty now for anyone who still wants to post anything or pick up any of the other prompts.

All being well, I should run it again next year, though hopefully now it's all set up from this time, a little earlier and with slightly more lead-in time. But yay! (Sorry. I always assume things I run will be a disaster and have low expectations, which then means I get very excited if they go well.)

2. [livejournal.com profile] calufrax is out of reccers again! If you can come up with 4-10 favourite fics from A Teaspoon and an Open Mind that haven't been recced before, then I recommend it - it's a lot of fun to do. (I know most people round here already know and have recced recently, but still. Making the announcement anyway!)

3. I'm sure there was something else. There always is...

[livejournal.com profile] calufrax is seriously out of reccers this time. If you have at least 4 fics from Teaspoon that you could rec, you can help.

I've literally just recced, so I can't do much more myself just now, but it is worthwhile & it's usually fun.

It's not scary - everything you need, including the posting template is there in the sign-up post. [livejournal.com profile] calufrax gets boosted on to Tumblr and other places, too & non-LJ users can rec as well.

(I don't do much signal boosting and I know most people round here follow the comm anyway... but it's [livejournal.com profile] calufrax, people, I have to try.)

I'm reccing on [livejournal.com profile] calufrax again this week (they did not get many volunteers when they last asked so I went for it; I can't be worse than a non-existent reccer) and am oddly terrified and feel like a fraud. Luckily, my bookmarks are still all full of nice things as yet-unrecced. And, besides, [livejournal.com profile] eve11 made it to 50 recs recently - and informed me (when I congratulated her) that I was on 49. Much to my shock. So now I've made it to 50 as well! (Er. That wasn't the only reason I volunteered again, but it was a factor, maybe... :lol:)

Anyway, I meant to post this here yesterday and forgot - I'm sure it will amuse quite a few of you as much as it did me: [livejournal.com profile] touchdownpossum made an excellent/ funny K9/Mr Smith fanvid:


ETA: Oh, damn. I knew I'd completely forget to crosspost and just be erratic and inconsistent.

Well, I have now finished with reccing for [livejournal.com profile] calufraxand while I was looking forward to it more than not, I had no idea that it would turn out to be quite so rewarding, but so it was. I'm still a little regretful of the 4 fics that came close, but choices have to be made.

Also congratulations to [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1and [livejournal.com profile] primsongwho are both winners in the Children of Time Awards, so well done them! I managed to make runner up, but I'm still too pleased with the whole reccing thing to take in anything else just yet. However, it means people must have bothered to vote for them & given the odd pair of fics, well... There were some wonderful fics on those lists, so I should at least give a little hop or jump or something presently.

And some more fic writing waffle )
