Okay, holiday spirit is here as is the loss of motivation to work, hence I am taking drabble prompts + icon requests for the first 15 people for each. Fandoms of Primeval, Merlin, The 4400, Harry Potter, Heroes, Survivors and SG.

You can give me up to 3 drabble prompts (character/pairing + words/phrase/situation) and up to 3 icon requests (must link me to a screencap, or give character/pairing, + colour/theme).

Expect icons/drabbles to be posted after the 28th December.

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 )
purpleyin: Cameron from Sarah Connor Chronicles looking to the side (Default)
I'm in the mood to write and I'd like to write for Heroes, but nothing big. So I thought I'd go open house on Heroes drabble requests. Whatever you want I shall write at least 100 words for. I mean whatever; any pairing, any rating, any theme. Feel free to request a couple. :)

EDIT: To avoid me spoiling requestees, please let me know what episode you've seen up to and if you've read the graphic novels.

Snurched from [livejournal.com profile] tielan

If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or NaNoWriMo or what have you, post exactly one sentence (or more) from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favourite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else -- this is merely to what the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

lots of lines behind the cut )

I have lots of in progress things, I doubt many will be ready soon but for some fun if anyone can guess what each is about based on the little sections...the first person to guess the fandom of each gets a 100 word drabble to their theme/pairing but each person only gets two guesses and I'll reveal the fandom after 6 incorrect guesses.

If you can guess the character pov/pairing as well then I'll write a 200 word one or if you only guess character after someone else guessed fandom you get a 100 word drabble. Same applies, 6 incorrect character guesses and I'll reveal. But I probably won't have this offer up long or else I'll be writing tons of drabbles. ;)

Okay, so I took part in this years Remix ficathon (what's that you may say? Think remixes of songs but with fic). It's anonymous for a whole week - ending sometime tomorow afternoon when there is the big reveal. Stories can be found on the very nice archive here, which also houses the stories for the past few years. You can browse by remix year, fandom and several other ways. This years remix was Redux IV: I Know What You Did Last Remix.

A lot of the fic is for Harry Potter (which much involving Sirius, Sirius/Remus or the Black family - though it has some wonder other character pieces, too), but other predominant fandoms are SGA (with much McKay/Sheppard), Firefly, Angel and X-Men Movieverse. I might do a rec list of fics but not this week as I'm far too busy with a presentation and a 2000 word essay.

And since other people seem to be doing it, I'm offering a ficlet if you can guess which story I remixed before the reveal. It's only a day left, but if anyone can then you got yourself a ficlet. And no, this isn't open to anyone on my friendlist who might be able to tell from a certain betareader request post I put up (which is now gone). I won't be able to tell if you read it though... To give you a clue I did not remix a Stargate story.

So far I don't think there's much interest in the remix I did. The original author gave nice feedback but otherwise I've had zilch through the sites built in system. :(

Anyway, for anyone interested, the story remixed for me was my Vala (+ Daniel/Vala) piece Liberty and you can find the remix here - A Moment of Indulgence (The Thousand Wishes Remix).

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.

Just a notice to say yay, Isis awards voting is open!

Plus sharing stuff, I made some Dark Angel screencaps for three guest stars from Stargate. Fiona Hogan who plays Dr. Simpson, Ben Cotton who plays Dr. Kavanagh and Peter Williams who played Apophis. Caps here under the respective episodes, Ben was in Harbour Lights and the other two in Borrowed Time.

Also have some clips behind here )

I thought I'd do a little poll on what less usual (or in need of more fic) pairings people would most like to see some more fic from. I've only included pairings I'm actually willing to write because I may end up trying to write the most popular ones... If you're sad one you want isn't on you can always comment and say, since I ran out of poll options and couldn't add all of what I could think of. :)

By tomorow I'll have had my journal a year. I'm pretty pleased with that, as my very first post points out it was a resolution I kept - I wanted to have a website (oh look I do now, though not so flash as I'd wanted) but enver got to learning php (somethings don't change, do they?). Hence my blog was born. It's probably no more interesting than when it started, mostly full of fandom stuff so I'm presuming that's the thing that keeps it going. I know many people have separate blogs for fic etc but I can't be bothered and besides which purpleyin is already taken.

My fandom review month by month - to be done in 3 parts, if anyone is interested at all that is. Four months sorting through at once is enough for today anyway.

Going over entries reminded how stressful the house deciding thing was and that big room was henry and mine sone condition whilst other housemates were fairly picky. looking back I can see they got pretty much everything they wanted and we didn't get that one condition. Henry didn't even want to move! And my only other concern was doorbell and locks on doors, neither of which were present. We REALLY got the raw deal. X(

Also hadn't had my hair cut since March, until last week. But I did get the blue hair I talked about so frequently. :D

Okay, in the spirit of the holidays I'm offering everyone a fandom/virtaul Christmas/Yule/Hanukah/etc gift. This is open to anyone who I know online, and because of festive cheer anyone else who likes the same kind of stuff I do, but you must reply no later than the 25th, because anyone replying after who is not someone I know well will not be sure to get anything.

Things you can choose from, but only choose one, are:

Icons - give me a show, and also a focus of some sort if you like, e.g. character, pairing, theme. I'll do almost anything as long as there is access to caps. You may get anywhere from 3 to 10, or more if I am inspired. But 3 at least I promise.

Wallpapers - just one, but it can be for anything you like practically, as long as pictures are available. Also please say what size you need it.

Vid - I'd prefer if you ask for a specific song matched up to a fandom or character or pairing. Obviously I may not have the song, but I might be able to get it if you ask. I just don't want anything too vague, but you can ask for a vid for a pairing or a theme or character, having a song or list of several would be better but I can probably work around.

Fanfic - I'll do several drabbles, or one small piece (guarantte of about 1000 words), or alternatively I'll do fanfic poetry if you like. Can't do songs though... except maybe attempting filks.

Original fiction - story or poem, just give me a theme or setting and I shall try.

I cannot promise any of these before Christmas sadly, but if you ask you shall receive, just a bit later than actual Christmas as I will be worknig my way through them in New Years. Vids in particular may take along while due to the nature and time taken for vidding, but I will get round to them, promise, at the very least before enxt Christmas. :D

Have fun everyone. :)

What now?

Had a decent day, was worried about the petrol boycott and couldn't find any news on it, until Tristan told me that it wasn't really happening and was just protesting. So we all went shopping (minus James) and got lots of stuff, continuing the trend to buy small amounts of decent beer rather than lots of cheap stuff. Means less beer but better beer. :) Healtheir too. Before shopping we had a fridge empty apart from condiments and cola, jam, mayo and eggs and now we have nice grapefruits and other fruit and veg. Stocked up with a couple of pizza's too incase any are needed for the marathon. Seems like a few people will be coming, must remind Tristan to bring back projector tomorow for it. Also keep getting frustrated at not having that letter that's sat at my old house for two months, it's not like I see Stuart at all, or whoever else moved into the house. Keep forgetting my betareading and icon making too - got lots of great textures/brushes before firefox crashed on me just now and must finish the challenge ones tomorow before the marathon gets underway on Sat/Sun. Mainly got SG-1 and Buffy ones to do, and more HP too; all to Garbage lyrics.

Got a vid rec too, if you like Weir with Shep, Caldwell or Rodney then you should watch [livejournal.com profile] blue_banrigh's vid here.

Other than that I want to write fic and make vids, but only got time for one vid and few fics, so onto polling. Everyone gets to tell me what they'd like. If what you'd like isn't an option then say what it is in comments. More than one vote is possible, I'll just go with what gets most.

[Poll #571340]

Found this over at ff.net, can't find who it was from as I saw it earlier today and lost the link but it looked cool so...

The ficlet challenge: Give me a fandom to work in, and exactly two of the following:

A pairing
A character
A setting
An object
...and I will write you a ficlet.

Obviously I have to have some clue about the fandom but you can ask and maybe I might know it. ;) There's always research too, excuse to watch stuff.

Ok, so learning java not going well.
My mind is incapable of taking a break from fanfic.
Currently keeping at bay, two letters from pegasus tags, the next chapter of too many scientists spoil the plot and the real hotzone fic. Plus a couple of drabbles and an unusual pairing one.
And I was intent on making a video too.

But spent today helping out with new atlantis message board of which I am now a mod. put quite alot of effort into it, helping the others who set it up. so come visit it at.

Other than that I'll get back to some betareading I must finish.
