So, this year I has no notes but I'm actually getting the post up instead of notes being lost in the depths of my house. In which the tidbits of the con, random things remembered. Photos will come a little later.

Con con con convention )

I got round to checking out my [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking today.

I got:
SG1 Daniel/Vala drabble by [livejournal.com profile] curia_regis
2 SPN Bela icons by [livejournal.com profile] maharet83
Primeval Abby/Connor ficlet by [livejournal.com profile] rodlox
SCC John/Cameron drabble by [livejournal.com profile] thepouncer
IOU from [livejournal.com profile] rodlox for a fic (you are so generous, thank you!)
+ well wishes. :)

I wrote a few ficlets (TW Tosh/Owen, SCC John, SGA Sheppard/Vala, SCC/Angel crossover), commented with recs for a number of people and made a SCC Sarah/Cameron header. It was fun. I'd wanted to get more stuff done and might have done if not for the nasty New Years cold. I've still got an Ironman EP fanmix that I didn't get round to posting, and an IOU I left for one participant. Anyhow, I'll be posting what I wrote properly here shortly. :)

Let me pimp out [livejournal.com profile] mwexplosion, which has been created for the McKay/Weir novel(la) writing event soon to kick off, but is also going to have smaller contests in the meantime - starting with our first icontest, for episode 1x01-02 "Rising". Go here for Challenge 1 rules and submissions post.

M/W or SGA graphics flisters, why not have a go? G'on ;)

Finally I get to posting something about P3! Part 1 of 3. Other should come soon when I find the time to type up the notebook full of notes I took, though feel free to poke me for more as a reminder.

Friday yayz )

Two items on the agenda

1. Please awesome flisters who're into Stargate, go create for the sg_rarepairings Prompt Battle. I'm sure you might even be able to recognise a few of my prompts over there, I'm a little predictable, but seriously there's tons of prompts, plenty of variety to choose from and not restricted to only fic either.

2. You can surely manage just 6 prompts (up to 5 character/pairing specific and 1 non-character-specific) for the following challenge? We need more fanart, it would be love, so do your bit and give them some good stuff to inspire! :D



[livejournal.com profile] paintedspires is an SGA fanart challenge in which a group of SGA artists respond to prompts submitted by the rest of fandom. There are over 70 artists signed up, and from March 10-16, they're asking for prompts from you! Any character, any pairing, any genre. Click the link! Help them out! Get pretty art in the bargain!

If you have love for rarely written Stargate pairings - het or slash + pairing or friendship/gen - then note this:

Today is the last day to submit prompts for the [livejournal.com profile] sg_rarepairings prompt battle - see here

So, my long standing Save Elizabeth Weir auction items need to get done. I know they do, however one of video items troubles me.

The requestee wanted preferably a Carson/Elizabeth video but I don't have any ideas for the song, just keep drawing a blank. I really would like to do the pairing they want, though failing finding anything for that pairing they'd be happy with a general Elizabeth one or John/Elizabeth or Lorne/Elizabeth. Anyone got any suggestions?

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

7 Days

In a couple of weeks, once I'm more organised and have gotten my secret santa stuff done, I was thinking of doing a couple "7 days of" events on my journal. That'd be me making sure to post something on the fannish topic for every day for a week. I've got a few ideas for what I'd like to do it on but not sure which to start with, so thought I'd see how popular each of them is. Bear in mind I'll probably take prompts for them.

Vote behind here )

So, for anyone on my flist, or who reads my public entries, I'm currently appealing for Season 2 based McKay/Weir banners to use on McKay/Weir Central.

We've got captioned ones rotating on the main page, on refresh, from Season 1 that were part of a caption contest a while back and I was thinking it's time we got some new ones, hence this appeal.

They can be just Rodney, just Elizabeth, both of them and also team/general ones that look to be interesting for amusing captions. You don't get to caption them yourself - though you can submit captions to the suggestions that get will get voted on - but we give credit to both makers of the graphics and captioners on the site. For more details on specifications and how to submit please check out the news article on Central.

We've got a deadline for this of January 30th just to get the ball moving so we can hold the contests soon.

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 )

Just want to point out there's a Teyla prompt battle on [livejournal.com profile] teylafen that I thought some people reading this might be interested in participating in.

What is it? I promise it's all good. :)

From now until midnight Saturday 28th April, UK time, they'll be collecting prompts for the battle in the comments to the above linked post. Then the day after, Sunday, a list of prompts will be posted up and it's a free for all to create art/fic/vid etc about any or all of the prompts with the aim of creating lots of lovely Teyla fannish goods.

Just to pimp it out, incase anyone reading might be interested in joining the remix fun - [livejournal.com profile] gateverse_remix. It's the one ficathon-esque thing I'm allowing myself to sign up for, mainly given it has a healthy amount of time between assignment and deadline.

Also on a fandom related note, thank you to those who nominated me for the Isis Awards. I have 3 fics nominated this year, 2 McKay/Weir (A Mutual Feeling & XYZ) and also 1 Kavanagh/Simpson (Nostalgia), which was squeeful to see up on the list today since I wasn't expecting any non-M/W noms. To be honest I wasn't entirely sure if I'd get anything nominated because my fic output has been low this last year, not exactly putting me on anyone's radar, and in that time I've barely written any M/W to boot. So it was a pleasant enough surprise just to see I had two noms for that - it cheered me up. Big hugs to you, whoever you are.

Title: Nostalgia
Rating: K+
Author: Purpleyin
Spoilers: For Rising only.

Summary: Simpson fic with a healthy side dish of Simpson/Kavanagh. Science is her career, not her life. Some things she's had to compromise on for her career, other things perhaps she shouldn't.

And here's the cut I forgot to do last night. )

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.

Because I figured a) I want shiny new fandom flisters and b) I thought maybe existing SGesque people might like to make new friends (nudges [livejournal.com profile] blackydragon who's currently getting into SG-1 in particular) I did the SG friending meme.

And here I am a PIMPIN'G it. You go. You comment. You get some (more) likeminded friends.

I added meself, predictably forgetting a number of key other fandoms I love (apologies to BSG, Lost, Dexter, The X Files/Lone Gunmen and Farscape).

And in other, but sad, news - the gateship was lost. I'm currently cursing either GIMP for crashing or [livejournal.com profile] fuskyb's lack of RAM. Sure he saved the file but the program saved a corrupt version over the top when it crashed. Grrr. It was looking so fantastic, I nearly cried when I found out.

I noticed today that the Isis Awards (for SG het shipping) are on finally! *was worried they'd fallen into the big black hole of the net since the last known email didn't work* Anyhoo, I crossposted a fair bit of pointing it out on a few communities I favour, to do my bit. Must try and remember all the good fic read over the last year to nominate... But one more thing - *huggles the new Isis team for making the awards happen again*

And to point out, nominations seem to be open as of today, March 1st, until March 22nd. Tis a brief period as usual. The address for the site is this - http://isis.worldstowander.com/
