merryghoul: plaza & sunset, LA (plaza & sunset)
A post to thank some people in fandom. Let's see...

  • Although it's more or less dead, the Burn Notice fandom for being mostly excellent all those years. (Except for a few wanky people, but they can be easily ignored.)

  • The [livejournal.com profile] who_daily staff for being awesome.

  • The Abuse staff at AO3 for stepping in when I needed someone to mediate between myself and another user. I am forever grateful to you.
  • merryghoul: fi with flower gun (fi with flower gun)
    Today's recs, in Sleepy Hollow and Burn Notice:

  • Ichabod/Abbie, Jenny: Three Gifts by [personal profile] carriemac. Ichabod struggles with Moloch's claim about Abbie's soul, while Abbie tries to forget her worries and get into the holiday spirit. Jenny just wants them to figure out they're into each other. Takes place right after "The Golem."

  • Ichabod/Abbie: Come and See by [archiveofourown.org profile] blindmadness. Abbie and Ichabod face the Four Horsemen.

  • Fiona, Michael: Scrambled by [archiveofourown.org profile] Evil_Little_Dog. Fiona’s ready for something other than yogurt.

  • Fiona: Holding Up by [archiveofourown.org profile] petunia846. "She's tired, she's scared, and she's not eating enough…and somebody's trying to kill her." A short description of how Fiona's holding up in prison.
  • merryghoul: torchwood (team countrycide)
    All recs from [community profile] jukebox_fest, which is a songfic fest. The last round finished a while ago; hopefully, there'll be one next year.

    Come Again Some Other Day by [archiveofourown.org profile] apatternedfever. In a town where it never rains, there's a woman who talks to the sky. Well. Once there was, anyway. (Based on Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine.")

    Rust and Stardust by [archiveofourown.org profile] tristesses. The rise and fall of a scarlet starlet. (Based on Lana Del Rey's "Off to the Races.")

    The Zoo at the End of the Universe by [archiveofourown.org profile] Morbane. The last two representations of humanity. (Based on "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd.)
    merryghoul: eleven (eleven)
    Recs, all Doctor Who, all from Teaspoon:

  • Five, older!Nyssa, Tegan, Turlough, Ainsley!Master: Master's Thesis by helluin (WIP). Tegan spars with the Master while Turlough and the Doctor hunt for a pesky temporal anomaly. There's gotta be a TOMTIT around here somewhere, right?

  • Ten, others: Practically Perfect by Splash of Blue. Silents in the nursery do not bode well for the future of Earth; luckily, however, there is at least one Time Lady who is willing to do what must be done. To tidy matters up. (Doctor Who/Mary Poppins crossover)

  • Ten/Tosh, others: Talking Shop by 51stCenturyFox. "Jack told me about you. Said you're brilliant. Didn't mention sneaky. Does he know you're sneaky?" (Crossover with Torchwood.)

  • Ian/Barbara: How to Make a Baby by paranoidangel. Ian is not in the mood tonight.
  • merryghoul: fi cerveza (fi cerveza)
    Come play!



    Today's recs:

  • Orphan Black, Alison/Beth: Girls With Guns by [livejournal.com profile] femme_slash_fan. The first time Alison allows Beth to teach her how to use guns she was nervous.

  • Doctor Who, Eighth Doctor, Cass: Could Have Been by [personal profile] paynesgrey. The Doctor is resolved to find his own peace from the war, but it may not be that easy.

  • Doctor Who, Rory, Amy: The First Day by [livejournal.com profile] irishvampire13. Rory can't offer her more than a lifetime. How can that measure up to all the years the Doctor can show her?
  • merryghoul: eleven small (eleven small)
    for the Fandom Appreciation Challenge:

    Thanks to [personal profile] bring_me_sugar for being an awesome person;
    the rest of my friends list for also being awesome (♥);
    and the Doctor Who fandom for being amazing, even though sometimes it can get wanky.
    merryghoul: fi and sam (fi and sam)
    For this day of the challenge. Sorry if these aren't exactly fresh, but they're favorites.

    Between Past and Present Tense by [personal profile] scripted_sra [Michael/Andre, Michael/Larry, Michael/Sam, Michael/Samantha, Michael/Fi, Sam/Michael/Fi | NC-17; see fic warnings]. "But in this career path, relationships and self-identity are not prioritized. While spies are trained to be able to ingratiate themselves with others, fooling strangers is a long way from the honesty and communication that people in relationships tend to expect. Combined with an emotionally stunted bedrock, navigating these waters can be ill-advised at best and downright dangerous at worst, often with little hope of success." And yet, despite everything, Michael Westen finds himself trying anyway.

    merryghoul: River sonic screwdriver comics (sherlock moriarty)
    Today's challenge is to write a letter to a fandom, so I wrote one to the Sherlock fandom, here, since I was compiling a lot of fic comms for someone on my LJ friends list. It's a continuation from this post, but with more communities (all on LJ).

    Now that I think about it, I should've just went to [livejournal.com profile] crack_van  and copypastaed. But this list is okay.

    And I should work on my Boardwalk Empire manifesto (for another comm) before June, or I lose the claim and I have to reclaim it. :O
    merryghoul: amy pond (amy pond)
    Today is visual medium appreciation day. Hopefully my selection of cookies and Legos isn't going to make this day invalid for me.
    merryghoul: River sonic screwdriver comics (suzie everything changes)
    Today's challenge was to send feedback to fen who manage communities, newsletters, etc. I sent feedback to the mod of [livejournal.com profile] torchwood_fic (over a post I made back in January that published today! Oh, well, it'll show up on [livejournal.com profile] torchwood_three again, methinks) and [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc_fic (I don't want to reveal my comment there, so I'll link to the page that it's on, for fear of being trolled).

    I'd like to promote a couple of comms (other than [livejournal.com profile] torchwood_three ) doing fannish things this week:
    • [livejournal.com profile] tw100 is still having a Lonely Prompts challenge, where prompts with less than two responses to them have been reopened for more fills.  I've done a few for the comm already.  I'd like to do more, but, I have [livejournal.com profile] rarewomen still, and I have 15 days.  D:
    • [livejournal.com profile] torchwood_fest /[community profile] torchwood_fest is asking for suggestions for their spring fic fest.  Decisions will be made this week over what exactly the fest will be about and how it's conducted.  (Membership open to those 18+; just show your birthdate (with year) in your profile before applying for membership.  And yes, if you're a member at LJ and you want membership to DW [and vice versa], your birthdate (with year) has to be on your profile in both places.  So, if you're interested, you should join NOW.)  
    merryghoul: River sonic screwdriver comics (tosh 1)
    Today's challenge involves reccing from an archive, so instead of doing AO3, I'm doing A Teaspoon and an Open Mind, the Whoniverse fic archive. I pulled out two Torchwood fics and a New Who Ninth Doctor fic from my favorites.
    • Although Long Time Dead would eventually Joss the ideas found in this fic (according to that book, and as I've incorporated in a few fanworks, Jack recruited Suzie to join Torchwood and, somehow in the process, she was on the run from something), I quite like Access Denied by such_heights, which has Suzie as a Torchwood London operative assigned to investigate Jack Harkness at Torchwood Three in Cardiff.
    • Twenty Things about Tosh by mari4212 is about...Tosh.
    • A Slight Change of Plan by rutsky has Nine pondering about his treatment from other Time Lords.
    While I'm at it, I've signed on for another round of [livejournal.com profile] calufrax . I'll let you know when I'm back in action there.


    merryghoul: tosh pool cue (tosh pool cue)
    I decided to leave comments for the following works at [community profile] fan_flashworks :And I'd like to really pimp [community profile] fic_promptly .  It's a multi-fandom daily comment prompt meme, like [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic on LJ, and I'd love to see more people there prompting and filling.
