luxken27: (meta - fanfic is most difficult)

The 2013 Summer Mini Challenge has come to a close, and I'd like to thank everyone who took part in it =) Under the cut are the banners made for those who completed their tables:

Banners! )

It was a record-breaking year for the challenge - not only in terms of participants or stories written, but also because - for the first time EVER - a single participant conquered all five tables! :D Congrats to [personal profile] kalloway on this amazing achievement!


Here is a list of every story that was written for the challenge, finished table or no. There's a great variety of fanfic and original work ~ 68 stories in all! WOW!!

Fic: Baby-Sitters Club, Full Metal Panic, Grimm, Gundam SEED, Gundam SEED Astray, Gundam SEED Destiny, Gundam SEED MSV, Gundam Stargazer, Inuyasha, Kingdom Hearts, Law & Order: SVU, Ramna 1/2, Star Trek: Voyager, Taggart, Tales of Symphonia 2, Teen Wolf, The Wolverine, Wycliffe, & original fiction )

For the third year in a row, I failed to finish my table *sigh* But, my summer challenge is far from over - I'm looking forward to diving into this pile of fic to leave comments! :D

You guys are awesome ~ thanks for make the summer worthwhile! ♥

My rec lists are embarrassingly out of date (seriously), so I figured it was high time I added to them all the amazing fic I've read this year - yes, it's been a year! Where has the time gone?? Ugh, IDK. But I *do* know that, now that the weather has become most inhospitable, and as we slide into the holiday season, there's nothing better than sitting down to an amazing set of stories. There's something for everyone here - everything from the short and (bitter)sweet to stories you can really sink your teeth into.

Recommendations: Inuyasha, Baby-sitters Club/California Diaries, Downtown Abbey, Full Metal Panic, Sweet Valley High )

It's been a couple of months since I updated my rec lists, but there are so many wonderful things that I want to share/pimp that I'm probably going to have to make more than one post :P This one is to share ALL THE THINGS that were gifted (to me, or to others) during the holiday exchanges ~ [livejournal.com profile] yuletide & [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking.

First and foremost: FELLOW BSC FANS! If you love to squee about our awesome canon and amazing characters, you would be remiss not to join [livejournal.com profile] bsc_squee! What could possibly be better than having an entire community devoted to nothing but squee? Nothing, that's what! SO JOIN!!!

Fic wasn't the only thing I received for [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking ~ I was also graced with an OTP fanmix, California Dreams icons and squee, as well as ultra-cute BSC OTP icons! :D :D :D I'd definitely say I lucked out this year ~ I'm still enjoying my bounty of gifts, as well as those amazing things gifted to others for the holiday season!

My rec lists are static at the top of my journal ~ Inuyasha | Baby-sitters Club | Multifandom/Miscellaneous ~ and you're welcome to look at them any time =)

I have another barrage of recs still to come, because this was hardly the tip of the iceberg, LOL! =)

My rec lists are woefully out of date, which means there are lots of great stories under the cut! :D

right at the borderline is where I'm going to wait for you )

A handful of recs, under the cut.

Recommendations - BSC, SbtB, Nancy Drew )

With the help of the always awesome [livejournal.com profile] lucida, I've managed to give the master lists section of my journal a major facelift. She wrote the code, I modified the color schemes (which was so painful, I'm vowing here and now to never do it again OMFG). But the pain was worth it, because now everything has been organized and prettified! =) Take a look:

Master Fic List ~ I only have one now, yay! :D

Recommendations: Inuyasha | Recommendations: Baby-sitters Club | Recommendations: Multifandom

(My multifandom list continues to grow by leaps and bounds, hence splitting off the BSC recs into their own list.) All of these lists are stickied to the top of my journal, and they are continually updated =) Have you read any good stories lately? Tell me about them!

My rec lists are woefully out of date, so it's time to rectify that. There are a bunch of recs under the cut, but one very special ficlet gets above-the-fold treatment =)

Title: Love You (2011)
Author: GloriaFan
Fandom: Kids Inc
Universe: Post-canon
Genre: Romance
Rating: K+
Warning: N/A
Pairing: Ryan/Stacy
Word Length: 313
URL: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7032322/1/
Author's Summary: Saying you love somebody means something, but it means more when you know they love you back. Short bit of giftfic fluff for LuxKen27.

Why I'm recommending this piece: This was a complete and total surprise, and a very much appreciated one. GloriaFan is the other prolific KI fanwriter at the moment, and I've basically over the moon to have stories for that fandom to read that didn't come from my pen. GF messaged me yesterday to alert me to this story, which he put up "just because" =) It's a beautiful little piece of fluff, the sort that pushes all my ooey-gooey romantic buttons for this, my oldest and most enduring OTP ♥

So I've figured out the work-around to post to FF.net...but apparently their alert system is totally broken. I had a couple of reviews posted up last night that I've yet to receive notice for. Very frustrating >:( (Lovely reviews, though! Anon commenters: if you leave me an email address or other way to contact you, I'd be more than happy to reply to you and/or answer any questions you have! I love chatting with fellow fans =) )

Over the weekend I went on a rash of community joining, mostly because I discovered there were some devoted to 80s-era nostalgia. So if you, like me, enjoyed a childhood in the 80s (and/or ~love~ 80s TV/movies/music), check these places out:

There's also a "dead fandoms" prompt table challenge community, so if you write in a tiny/obscure fandom (or if you want to), check it out: [livejournal.com profile] dead_fandoms

Also of interest ~ [livejournal.com profile] ironyjones has started a writing community at [livejournal.com profile] awenish. It's one part critique circle, one part support group, and it's open to both original and fannish writers. If you're serious about your writing and want to improve any aspect of it, or if you enjoy working with authors in critique, check it out!
