Well, tomorrow appears to be the big day in the [livejournal.com profile] savethe4400 campaign - they just updated on how the seeds site is now offering a whole case delivered to the offices for $20! So if you want to help out and have yet to write a letter or anything, here's your chance.

Time for a pimping!

Firstly, everyone who likes tech, games or other geeky things should checkout [livejournal.com profile] guruphil's new website DarkOrb. It's just finding its feet, is in need of content contributions but is certainly doing well for just a few weeks after launch. :)

For 4400 fans, I'd like to point out the newly revamped Jacqueline McKenzie (who, for anyone forgetful of names, plays Diana Skouris) community - [livejournal.com profile] jac_aholic. It's now got open membership, though with posts moderated, so if you've got anything to add - Jacqui news, icons, graphics etc - I'm sure it would be loved over there.

Now for the SGA stuffs - Stargate Fan Awards has opened voting finally. I've got a few things nominated myself, plus I know there's tons of great fic, art etc in there as always, so you should check it out, no excuses!

I'm also gonna point out [livejournal.com profile] rolleson has a poll up here asking about interest in a Sam Carter drabble-a-thon so if you might like to take part in one now or March you should go answer it.

Lastly, for McKay/Weir peeps [livejournal.com profile] aaobuttons has got a One Word Prompt Party going on. Easy to join in, just pick a word and make of it what you will. :D

If you're interested in taking part in the [livejournal.com profile] savethe4400 campaign they've managed to get giantseeds.com to put together special 4400 campaign orders with free delivery if it's to USA Network in NY. Only $5 (about £2.50ish).

Watch out if you pay by Paypal as the paypal shipping address you use will override the one you enter in the system previous to that, so you might want to make up a Paypal address entry for the USA Networks address and make sure to change it when you do the Paypal part of their checkout. Otherwise you'll end up like me with it shipped to UK and having to email them to rectify the mistake.

There's a campaign to save the 4400 and I noticed today someone got a website up. SaveThe4400.com is organising a letter writing/sunflower seeds sending campaign (bit like nuts for Jericho, tabasco sauce for Roswell efforts) for the beginning of February - you can also sign the petition here.

I was a bit surprised to hear someone mention this on a convention site, presuming they were refering to the props being sold off and extrapolating from that. The official site has no press release on the main page but checking out the official message board there was a post by Scott Peter yesterday. As you'd expect a petition for the fifth season is already underway.

What I'd mainly like to say is: damn.

I was so looking forward to season 5. The show may have had it's faults but it was good for pete's sake. I suppose it never helped to have a smaller viewer base being on a lesser known network but it was really ace scifi for at least 2 seasons, may have ambled down a bit in 3 and 4 but generally came out on a high point and the finale's for season were always ace, the last one in particular. Now we have that gloriously open-ended cliffhanger that won't be going anywhere and frakking hell I want to see the rest of the story. I do dearly hope they can continue the story somehow, comics or the like. :(

[livejournal.com profile] naughtyelf pointed this out on [livejournal.com profile] 4400spoilers - Jacqui will be at London Expo. WHEEEEE! It's like a mini 4400 convention now!

Appeal for the Diana + Marco month of love. We're looking a bit better now but it's one week away from July and the early days of the month are looking sparse. We need another 20 people to contribute to fill up the month, especially early on.

A Marco icon. A Diana drabble. A Maia and Diana mini vid. Tom and Diana partners banner - all good things we'd love to see. Don't forget friendships for the characters with other characters is fine too - family or friendship. Why not explore Diana's relationship with her father or her sister or even her mother or likewise show us Marco's (presumably loving) family!

There's so much choice of what to contribute, little or big, you choose what and how much and when.

Crossposted quite a few places, sorry for anyone seeing it more than once.

A lengthy written as I watched reaction post for the premiere of S4 of THe 4400.

Are You Ready? )

Syfy Portal is calling for nominations for shows/films by May 20th. Stuff is eligible if it aired between June 1, 2006 and May, 31st 2007. I found out via [livejournal.com profile] 4400spoilers who posted with 4400 related suggestions, some of which I decided to back.

And here's what I decided to nominate )

Taken from [livejournal.com profile] belisse. Following a read of this meta on lack of feedback I'm thinking I could do with pimping my gen/character stuff that I'm proud of (but get barely any comments on) about the place. I'm well enough known in the happy little SGA fandom niche of McKay/Weir but for any other fandoms or gen SGA stories, even straight main character angst/friendship things, seem to just sit about not getting much love. Hence I'm going to fill in this completely conceited meme in order to hopefully inspire people to read those fics that I adore myself.

5 fics meme )

That said, my 4400 in general I love to bits, loved writing and it's not a much loved fandom. I consistently had my betareaders being the only people who'd leave comments 90% of the time.

Also whilst doing this meme I found out that I have more than 100 fic posts, making the my fanfic tag a bit worthless since it wouldn't go back further than that. Hence now I'm leaving it for general talk of my fanfic and fics will be posted under for example the tag - my 4400 fic, my heroes fic or my sga fic etc. Should make it easier to find things within a fandom on my journal, though I really need to make myself a website to list everything on.

Time to tag people for the meme. I choose [livejournal.com profile] planetkiller, [livejournal.com profile] mari4212, [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle, [livejournal.com profile] tielan and lastly [livejournal.com profile] fanwoman, in the hope she'll start both using her LJ and getting her fic more out there.

Decided to do that thing I did last year, a round up and examination of everything fan related I created last year. I rather doubt 2006 was more creative than 2005, I suspect my word count was less and I know I didn't do as much vidding by far. And yes, apparently I clocked just under 60,000 words last year, compared to over 120,000 in 2005!

The roundup )

Last notice - it's not too late to join, but you'd better get a move on if you do want to get involved because signups for the 4400 ficathon end today. So, anyone not already signedup who is interested you can find all the info over here.

I'm running a 4400 ficathon over at the newly revamped 4400abductees.com forum.

For those who do not know what a ficathon is here's a quick explanation. Each person in a ficathon puts in a request (or several – in this case 2) for a story, these can be as specific or as broad as they like, and are guaranteed one story will be written for them. In return they agree to write one story for someone else (minimum 800 words) and to meet the required deadline for hand in that signals the end of the ficathon. No one apart from the organiser knows who's writing whose requests until stories come in, so you get a - hopefully nice - surprise when the deadline is up; a fanfic specially written to your specifications.

The schedule:
Announcement for signups - 29th May
End of signup phase - 21st June
Assignments emailed out - 28th June
Decision period on assignments and asking for reassignments - 29th June until 12th July
One week reminder email - 23rd July
Deadline week of submission for fic - 1st August until 7th August.

Okay, so I've seen all of 4400 Season 2 and I thought crossovers with SGA, and maybe SG1, would be quite cool - difficult but workable.

Spoilers for S2 4400 and SGA, plus S9 SG1 )
And for those who haven't seen 4400, explanation of premise and why you should see it under this cut )
And I'm still really wanting 4400 fic, because there are so few writers only a tiny amount is much good or of interest to me (need more gen/character fics) - so open invitation of fic swap. You write me a 4400 fic (anything but Tom/Diana or the slashes that seem already common for this fandom) and I'll write you a fic of your choice in a fandom (tv/film/book) we share love of - or if you prefer graphics or a vid possibly.
