If anyone's looking for something to do.

Also, nominations are now open at [community profile] crossovering. Which also looks like it could be fun, if crossovers are your thing.

So apparently Sci-Fi Fic Swap was cancelled. Or at least I'm assuming that's what it means when the AO3 account and the DW account both get deleted without warning. Would have been nice to have been given a reason why, but oh well.

There are lots of other challenges going on right now, including [community profile] npt_admin for medium-sized fandoms (nominations open until April 15th) and Night on Fic Mountain for rare fandoms (nominations open until April 21st). (Night on Fic Mountain started at FFA; questions can go there.)

I'm debating whether there are enough fandoms I want in either to sign-up. Might be nice to put my sci-fi fic sign-up letter to a purpose...

Orphan Black took ten awards at the Canadian Screen Awards this year, including best drama series, a best actress in a drama series award for Tatiana Maslany, best supporting actress for Maria Doyle Kennedy, and best supporting actor for Jordan Gavaris. So a good night for them.

In completely unrelated news, Remix Redux 11 is running this year at [ profile] remixers_lounge. There's a poll up now about what fandoms should be added, if anyone feels like participating. Current contenders include Arrow, Elementary, Sleepy Hollow, and Teen Wolf.

(I'm not sure yet if I'm going to participate, but looking through my own stuff, I think the only things I currently qualify for are SGA and SG1. Well, and Forever Knight, but that's not one of the official options. Apparently I lack fandom commitment.)

New sci-fi fic exchange running on AO3. Apparently the matching is going to be on fandom and relationships, not characters. You can ask to receive gen/friendship fic in the details, but shouldn't offer pairings you aren't prepared to write romantically. Could be interesting.

Nominations (open until March 15th) and sign-ups (opening March 20th) for anyone who's interested. You can also check it out on Dreamwidth.

(Sci-Fi is being defined here as "a genre with futuristic settings, futuristic science and technology, space travel, time travel, parallel universes, extraterrestrial life, and things of that nature.")

Want to celebrate a more platonic version of Valentine's Day? Just a fan of gen friendship? Head over to the fourth annual Valentine's Day multifandom friendship fic (and art) fest and leave a prompt or two. Or fill some!

Also! There's a very casual Sleepy Hollow multimedia fest happening over here if you want to come leave some prompts. (Prompt filling starts next week!)
skieswideopen: Text icon saying "team enabler" (team enabler)
Nominations are open at [ profile] rarewomen! This is an exchange for female characters from fandoms big and small who don't get nearly enough stories written about them.

I haven't decided yet if I'm signing up--I've been trying to cut back on challenges so I can tackle my WIP folder and maybe some NYR stories instead--but I love the concept behind this one, and I'm tempted by the (slight) possibility of more Being Human fic.

The rules can be found here and there's some discussion of nominations here. Nominations are open until February 8th.

If you're looking for something else to do, sign-ups will be opening in a few days at [ profile] shipswap, and sign-ups are currently open at [community profile] space_swap | [ profile] space_swap. Because you can never have too many space ships.

Sign-ups are open at [community profile] space_swap | [ profile] space_swap if anyone wants to come play! Sign-ups close February 8th.

Sign-ups for [community profile] fandom_stocking close on Wednesday. Go here if you want to participate!

Also! The full list of Yuletide prompts has been released early this year, if anyone's curious about what was requested (and what therefore might be written). The easiest way to see the whole list is to download the text file linked in the first comment of this post.

[community profile] fandom_stocking is up and running! You can leave your stocking here. (And get an early look at what other people are asking for!)

Sign-ups at [ profile] insmallpackages are open as well!
skieswideopen: Kat Neely from Being Human (Being Human: Kat)
The new season of Being Human is still a couple of months away, so I'm keeping myself entertained by creating a community.

[community profile] beinghuman_us

At least it'll be somewhere to rec any Yuletide fic that gets written? /optimistic

I'm still fiddling with a few things, but if you're a fan of the show and have anything you want to post, go ahead.
skieswideopen: Text icon saying "team enabler" (team enabler)
If anyone's looking to take a break from Yuletide write short (100 to 2000 words) fic in a sci-fi or fantasy fandom, prompting is now open at [ profile] consci_fan_mo. You can leave fandom prompts here, lyric/quote prompts here, and image prompts here. You're allowed up to five prompts in each category. Prompting closes November 15th.

1. Nominations are open at [community profile] galentinesday. If you're interested in fic celebrating friendship between women, this might be the exchange for you!

2. Dreamwidth Friending Meme
skieswideopen: Text icon saying "team enabler" (team enabler)
1. I'm thinking of trying to learn to drive (again). I've had a G1 (learner's permit) for, oh, about fourteen years total (with a few breaks between), but I've never gotten as far as taking a road test, although I've taken driving lessons three times now. I really, really don't like driving, but it seems like one of those adult skills I ought to make the effort to master. So maybe it's time for another round of lessons. And maybe to see if I can sweet-talk one of my friends or sibs into taking me to practice. Actually, one of my friends is working nights right now...maybe I can talk him into a few drives in exchange for lunch.

2. My sister and brother picked up Toronto Rock season tickets. I'm debating whether to join them, or just plan on going to a couple of games this season. It's not like I'm that big a lacrosse fan and it's not like lacrosse generally sells out. I did have a good time last time, though. (We don't actually sit in our seats--we hang out in the restaurant instead--so it doesn't really matter whether our seats are together.)

3. I started listening to Welcome to Night Vale! I resisted for a while because I usually have trouble listening for an extended period, but I've actually found the format fairly easy to listen to. So much so that I managed to catch up on the entire thing in about a week. (I made a few trips downtown and back during that time, which helped. When I have successfully listened to any sort of podfic or audiobook, it's been on public transportation.)

4. Standard enabling: prompt claiming is still open at [ profile] apocalypse_kree with fic due in early October, and fandom recruitment opens at [community profile] space_swap | [ profile] space_swap on the 14th, in case you have any space-based fandoms you've been dying to share. Oh, and with the new TV season starting up, it might be worth checking out [community profile] tv_talk if you're looking to chat with other viewers of your favourite shows.

[community profile] space_swap [ profile] space_swap

A multimedia exchange for space fandoms of all sorts, including television series, movies, and books.

Schedule | FAQ

This is open to all fandoms in which someone went into space at some point. TV shows, movies, books...whatever. As long as it featured people in space.

Rough, carefully-planned-not-to-conflict-with-Yuletide schedule: the promoting of fandoms will begin later this month, nominations will begin in November, and sign-ups will take place in January.

(P.S. If anyone spots any major problems with the comm--typos, lack of clarity, major date conflicts we may not be aware of, please let us know!)

[ profile] apocalypse_kree is back! The rules here and you can leave prompts here. All flavours of Stargate are welcome, and you don't have to be planning to make something to prompt. Also, this year it's open to art as well as fic, in case someone feels inspired that way. Prompting is open until August 12th, with prompt claiming beginning on August 13th.

Other Things

* All of the stories from this year's [community profile] fkficfest | [ profile] fkficfest have been posted. My gift was a lovely Nick/Janette story by [ profile] batdina called A Time of Consequences.

* Sign-ups are open at [community profile] rarecharacters | [ profile] rarecharacters. More info here.

* Sign-ups are also open at [ profile] owememafia, in case anyone wants to come play!

Author reveals are up at [ profile] shipswap. I received a great Flashpoint fic: Oblivious (Spike/Winnie) from [ profile] kalisgirl. I really wasn't expecting something from Flashpoint, so that was doubly exciting. For my part, I wrote an Alt!Olivia/Alt!Lincoln Fringe fic set in an AU of season four.

And speaking of [ profile] shipswap, apparently rare is in right now! [ profile] rarepairfest sign-ups closed last night, and there's a rare characters exchange starting up soon at [community profile] rarecharacters | [ profile] rarecharacters. Still waiting on the details, but it might be fun, especially for those of you who tend to fall in love with someone other than the main character(s).

There's also another new exchange happening at [community profile] tagyourit | [ profile] tagyourfic where participants will be matched on fandom and trope rather than character or pairing. Like [community profile] rarecharacters, this is still in the preliminary planning stage, but I think it could be an interesting experiment.

ETA: If anyone's looking for a more general exchange, nominations are open at [community profile] ineedmyfics.

I haven't done one of these for a while.

1. There's a John Sheppard/Cameron Mitchell summer prompt challenge happening over at [ profile] sg_flyboys. Leave a prompt, fill a prompt...whatever you like.

2. There's a multi-fandom meta comment-a-thon happening here. Again, leave a prompt, fill a prompt...whatever you like. There's some interesting stuff there.

3. Nominations are now open at [ profile] rarepairfest. For the purposes of this fic exchange, a rare pairing is one with fewer than 250 completed stories of 1000 words or more. You can read the full list of rules here.

4. [ profile] badsexfest is also running now. Prompts can be found here and fills here. (And check out [ profile] somehowunbroken's fill: As The River Loves The Sea And The Ocean And That One Big Lake (Anthropomorphic Fic/Reader).)

5. There's an LJ friending meme if anyone is looking to expand their circle of friends.
