fandom makes my world go round

mood: hopeful

feelforfaith and I are planning to start lotrips_remix signups later this month after the Slashy Oscars nominations are closed.

Which reminds me about awards and competitions: I strongly prefer recs (here are mine), to awards, as I can't choose which of several fabulous stories is 'better". I'm just not built that way. Also, the authors of the stories that do not win and their friends tend to be terribly hurt.

I am finally getting back to solo writing (though I adore writing with unstealthy), and have all but the last (crucial) scene finished of my angsty!Dom story ready for beta. I'd tried to shove a happy ending onto it, and that was just wrong. Is better now.

Randomly, I tried one page of friendsfriends and immediately found the blog of a British screenwriter who writes for Torchwood and Doctor Who, so I found the LJ feed: jamesmoranblog. I don't take those shows seriously at all, but enjoy them as romps with melodrama. (ETA to fix the feed link, the blog is http://jamesmoran.blogspot.com/)

I'm also doing some stuff with starDom -- go take a look, they have some great interviews and videos and pictures.


Happy (late) Birthday to sophrosyne31, who still stops in to post, sometimes angry, sometimes content, always wonderful. I am SO glad we got to meet that time, even if it was raining!

And early to yueni: I hope your China plans work out and you find things more exciting and satisfying there! Please let us know how it goes, good or bad, ok?

I don't know exactly when Dani's (juke_box_dive) birthday is, but it's coming soon. You are one of my favorite writers in fandom, able to weave details into an amazing tapestry of words. You write with such empathy, bringing me in to every emotion and sensation as I read. You are also a pinkly fabulous person! Happy birthday!

Thank you, thank you for the compliments and well wishes but it's not for months and months. Mine is simply pre-angst over a completely arbitrary number (35), which for some reason has me really bummed out. I have a near birthday phobia anyway and the whole thing is positively ridiculous. But I wouldn't be me if not completely ridiculous in some way or another.

Extra double early birthday wishes then!

35 was a pretty good year for me, I hope the same for you.

All kinds of goodies in this post. Thank you for the link to StarDom, and also for the news on Remix 2008 -- back to a spring schedule!! I'm amazed at all the things you have on the go, and absolutely delighted that you have a solo fic on the cusp. Looking forward to it VERY MUCH!

You are so sweet and make me smile a goofy and fond smile :-)

I hope you're doing well, and not working too hard.

Hey there! I get an error message with the screenwriter feed link, and would love to read it. Torchwood is quickly becoming an obsession! ;)

I swore last year I wasn't going to do anymore challenges, didn't I? I'm almost certain I did. Which perversely makes me want to sign up. Because I'm kind of...like that. >.>

Congrats on the solo writing - I know it must feel good to stretch those muscles again. :) Yay, you!

starDom's alive again? How lovely to see. Nice that there's a place to download some of those things again. :)

Maybe you could do an invisible challenge? remix yourself or a friend, and use the same deadlines?

ETA: starDom has an amazing interview

It was so much fun to transcribe, though it became a major challenge when he mumbled. New canon!

Great interview, too! Thanks!

Yay, remix! You'll post a reminder here when it's open? One of the few fanfic things I actually think I can make time for, hehe.

Oh, it's great to see that starDom is updating again. I used to pop over there all the time but for a while it was so quiet. Thanks for the heads up. And as long as I have something happy and sappy to read after, I'm looking forward to reading your new story.

Would it be ok if I e-mailed you and feelforfaith to find out how you run a fic exchange? I've been thinking of trying to organize a VigBean exchange (since some VigBean ladies seem to think there are fewer of us around and I just don't think that's true) but I have no idea how it would work.
