Thoughts )

Ooh, I was just going to say I hope [livejournal.com profile] merlin_holidays runs again because I'd like to participate again, and it looks like signups open tomorrow! I need to think about what I want to request ack. Also gosh that deadline is going to come up quickly. But anyway yay Merlin!!!


Sign-ups for [profile] merlin_holidays begin Sept 22 at 10 am Eastern

At the end of [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon challenge two (Secrets & Lies!) I decided to podfic a couple of my favorite entries (yeah, I like the one I wrote!). They are my first podfics since February! :D And it happened that I was finishing them up around the time [livejournal.com profile] teprometo posted the week 5 bonus challenge, which is fanworks that pass the Bechdel Test. (There are many delightful fanworks over there, and also some heated discussions and a wee bit of trolling.) These first two podlets fit, and the third doesn't but I really like it so I posted all three of them over there.

And here they are on my journal! Um, putting them behind a cut because the display is fucked up on Dreamwidth and I can't with coding anymore tonight. For once I recommend viewing this post on LJ (though sadly I lack any lesbian icons there)

Elena/Vivian, Gwen/Freya, Arthur/Morgana, ~five minutes each )

So far I like the entry I've started for this week's main challenge and I'm excited to see what other people come up with. Personally I think [livejournal.com profile] teprometo's prompt of "Snatch" is a brilliant way to encourage people to try out making ladyporn without requiring it, and I'm proud of her for how she's been handling everything.

I do hope some people will feel inspired to try something new this week and have fun with it. Others will decide they'd rather write about capers than vaginas and that's okay too. Femslash has always been part of my Merlin writing experience (not so much in my previous fandoms) so this week's prompt isn't a stretch for me, but I'm grateful for other ones that have been, at [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon and at [community profile] kink_bingo and [community profile] camelot_fleet, and elsewhere.

I also ♥ my buddy [livejournal.com profile] flammablehat like whoa.

At one point there were only five Arthur/Gwen/Merlin stories on the AO3 and three of them were by me. When I went back to look tonight it turns out we're still only up to 57, and somehow I've only written five of them? Let's get on that, self and fandom.

I'm having a really good time with [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon so far!

Although my previous team was also awesome I am really psyched to be on Team Gluttony this year because I have a bunch of friends there. In the past Team Gluttony has almost always won the tournament but now that I've joined we're in fifth place. COINCIDENCE? No, but it's cool, none of our stories have won prizes yet but we keep finding out afterwards that we voted for each other without knowing it. It is exciting for me to be making fanworks and interacting with people regularly after more or less dropping out of fandom for a year and then writing some seriously unpopular fics earlier this year.

Of the three main entries I've done so far I only really like the second, and I'm feeling especially insecure about my porn writing abilities, but I also feel like I have the chance to keep improving as the fest goes on. Here are the first two reposted on the AO3 (the third is anonymous until next weekend, and there will be four more):

In Freya's Bed (748 words) by sophinisba
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Merlin (TV)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Freya/Merlin (Merlin), Merlin/Arthur Pendragon (Merlin), Elena/Morgana (Merlin), Freya/Merlin/Arthur Pendragon (Merlin)
Summary: (731): Look I know it's late and I hope this doesn't wake you up but I feel like you should know that I'm sleeping on my couch in my own apartment so that my friend can get laid in my bed, and I would do the same for you. (http://textsfromlastnight.com/Text-Replies-31267.html)

The Super Part I Can Handle (744 words) by sophinisba
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Merlin (TV)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Freya/Gwen (Merlin)
Summary: Freya's secret identity is less mysterious to Gwen than she thinks.

In past years I've struggled a lot with the bonus challenges that happen between Tuesday and Thursday every week, but this year I'm really proud of myself for finishing the first three right away on Tuesday night:
1. a snippet of Will & Merlin friendship fic, canon AU
2. some Gwen meta inspired by the movie 20 Feet from Stardom
3. a ficlet about Vivian reading romance novels, late 20th century AU

And then also this week, unrelated to pthon, [personal profile] livrelibre let me know that they'd made a podfic of The Archer's Aim, a Hunger Games poem that I wrote two years ago. I listened to it tonight and it was awesome! I also hope to make a couple podfics soon, but then I often hope that. We shall see. :)

I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon! I didn't do it last year but am really looking forward to going back. You know, a few months back [livejournal.com profile] flammablehat and I tried setting up a weekly writing challenge but it didn't really come to anything, and I had a few other fannish disappointments around that time (February/March), well, you know how it is, it's hard when you're away from a fandom for a while and you feel like when you come back it'll be exciting but it turns out in the meantime your friends also left so it just ends up being extra lonely. But whatever this is pthon and it will be awesome.

Maybe you would like to join too! Signups are open through July 10th.

It's funny to me that it's starting so late because I've had a pretty long and enjoyable summer that's pretty much over at this point, but I'll talk about that more in another post.

I was thinking that since I'm going to be hanging around here in fandom more for the next couple months I should do a general update about what I've been up to, but then thinking about all the different things started to feel overwhelming, so I think I'll make a series of shorter posts with topics such as:
-work
-volunteering
-the World Cup!
-other TV?

And so on, and most of those will be f-locked.

I don't have much more to say in this post about fandom because, you know, I haven't been fannish! It's funny, I don't know if it was two years ago or three years ago at pornathon, but as I getting to know the other people on my team I just boggled at how many said oh yeah, I haven't really been in fandom in the last year and I don't read my flist, I just come back for pornathon. Like, at the time (whenever it was) I could not even imagine not keeping up with my LJ and Dreamwidth friends. But here we are, I've been away and I'm back for pornathon, but who knows maybe it will lead to me being more social and creative in general, at least for a while.

Title: Virginia Heat (the climate control remix)

Contains: a little religious homophobia at the beginning but it's mostly very cheerful, really
Wordcount: 4000
Notes: Remix of Virginia Heat by [livejournal.com profile] millionstar for [personal profile] camelotremix 2014. I had some difficulties with this (my first substantial fic since last year's remix) and am really grateful to the the wonderful mods [livejournal.com profile] venivincere and [livejournal.com profile] sapphirescribe for giving me some extra time, and to my dearest [livejournal.com profile] flammablehat for reading, encouraging, and helping me figure out what this fic was about.
Summary: Arthur the preacher's son has a plan to make it out of his hometown unscathed. Merlin shoots it all to hell.

Read it at the AO3!
sophinisba: Wee Gwen admires wee Merlin's magic! (gwen merlin by el_jamon)
One of my first Merlin fics, written a little while after I watched season one, was about Gwen figuring out that Merlin was gay and telling him she was fine with that. I'm so pleased that my [personal profile] camelotremix remixer decided to write another version of that, with lots of Lancelot being a dear and Morgana being fabulous and warm season one feelings. It is called My Friends, They Are So Beautiful (the Belle Epoque remix), and it is awesome.

The last remixes went up last Saturday and the authors' names will be revealed this coming weekend. Some others that I enjoyed a lot are Be Thy Mercies Known (Send Her Victorious remix), which takes a fun Arthur/Merlin + friends party fic and remixes it into something super sad, Danger Zone (The Being Safe is Overrated Remix), a longish Arthur/Merlin high school AU (with magic!) that just has a really nice deft touch, and Falconress (the wind beneath your wings remix), a lovely short post-canon fic about Hunith and Merlin. But I'm sorry to say I've only read or looked at a small fraction of them. What are your favorites?

Hey there, Internet, I could use some help! So I switched from a plain old talking phone to my first smartphone about six months ago and it's been loads of fun, but I still haven't figured out how to download and listen to music or podfic on it. /o\

I used to use an iPod touch and I would take care of all the synching stuff in iTunes, but I can't do that anymore.

I have Google Play/Play Music, of course, I'm pretty sure that came loaded on the phone but I also went to the trouble of connecting my accounts and uploading all the music from my computer to this cloud.

The thing is, Google Play seems to be mostly set up for streaming, which is no use for me. I have a really limited data plan so I want to be able to download things at home and then listen to them when I'm out walking. After I'd had this phone for about four months my sister showed me how you're supposed to be able to download a track by bringing it up in your library and then hitting the pushpin icon (thanks, Google, that was super intuitive) but when I try to do this I always just get the message "Can't download music right now."

Sometimes I manage to navigate to a podfic right on my phone and I think I've downloaded and opened the mp3 from there, but then I need to use another app and when I try to go back to the mp3 it's gone. Safari won't load anything when I'm offline and I don't know where else to look for the file.

Ack I'm super embarrassed to admit that I can't get this when it seems like a really basic thing! I mean the thing is I don't miss it terribly because most of the time I just want to listen to podcasts, and I handle that with another app, BeyondPod, and that works fine. Anyway that is my tale of woe! I appreciate your help, thanks!

Oh for goodness sake, I forgot the other half of what was supposed to be in my previous post:

I'm excited about the new round of [personal profile] camelotremix!

I was feeling a little weird about signing up when I hadn't written any new fic since last year's remix, but [livejournal.com profile] flammablehat and I decided that was fine, and also that I would go ahead and post those Freya ficlets, and that we would both write some other new stuff. Yay!

[personal profile] camelotremix/[livejournal.com profile] camelotremix! A comm I helped start, now modded by the fabulous [personal profile] venivincere and [personal profile] sapphirescribe, who did such a fine job with it last year. Signups are open through Saturday the 1st.

The many comments on the LJ signup and the handful on Dreamwidth are a beautiful microcosm of the fandom.

[personal profile] roughandtumble aka [livejournal.com profile] flammablehat and I were talking yesterday about how we missed writing Merlin fic, so we decided to go back to doing it! We set up a comm to challenge ourselves/each other to write a short fic every week, like we used to do during [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon. We would love it if others would join us, whether for making fic or other fanworks.

The comm is [community profile] merlinblitz and the first prompt is "rainwater".

So, last July I had this idea that I could make series of poems and ficlets of Freya backstory for my [community profile] kink_bingo card and get the Solo Kink Bingo for the first time. I wrote the first three parts and then got stalled on the fourth (which was not even part of the bingo but was necessary for the series), and I never posted them. And then last night I did! Maybe I'll finish the fourth part and write the other two someday.

General content notes: So, the second part starts when Freya is very young and the series involves sexuality and self-harm and death of family members. The parts that I haven't written yet also involve sexual assault and murder! As [livejournal.com profile] flammablehat said when I was first chatting with her about the series, "freya is a really intense little girl".

I am very grateful to [livejournal.com profile] flammablehat for her help and support!

Title: Surface
Rating: PG?
Contains: death, grief
Wordcount: 324
Notes: For my "mirrors/doubles" square. My first sestina!

Title: Sharper
Rating: PG-13?
Contains: solo kink and masturbation by a young girl
Wordcount: 1330
Notes: For my "shaving/depilation" square. I think this is a fairly wholesome story about growing up and figuring oneself out, so I invite you to give it a try on its own even if it the next part doesn't look like your cup of tea.

Title: Deeper
Rating: R?
Contains: death, grief, menstruation, blood, cutting
Wordcount: 1185
Notes: For my "pain" square. Makes more sense if read after "Sharper".

I am happy I was able to contribute something to the fourth annual Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology!

Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology IV cover with rainbow colored silhouettes of six fans

Look at that awesome cover art by [livejournal.com profile] bessyboo! Thanks to mod [personal profile] klb and everyone else who helped make this 10-hour, 78-fandom monster. Also I just realized as I was getting this post ready that I must have submitted a file with an extra ten minutes of dead air and junk on it, so special thanks and apologies to whoever had to deal with that. And special thanks and hugs to [personal profile] growlery for her lovely, gentle recording of my old Eowyn/Faramir ficlet There's Another Dance.

Festivids vidder names have been revealed and I'm still so grateful to Dayln aka [livejournal.com profile] gigglemonster for making the fabulous Never Let Me Go vid Lifeforms.

I made Let Me Go (not the most fortuitous title, I know) for the 1981 BBC miniseries Brideshead Revisited. Like my recipient [livejournal.com profile] crowie, I loved this story before I knew what slash was, and it was good to go back and spend some time with it again. B suggested the lovely Kate Rusby song "No Names", and someday I'll make a vid where the picture actually looks nice.

Even though vidding is super hard I am glad I participated in [community profile] festivids! The mods took good care of us and I had a lot of good companionship on Twitter and commenters were generous. I hope it'll work out for me to play again next year, and I hope I'll make another vid or two before then!

And hey, speaking of vidding, calls just went up at [community profile] wiscon_vidparty both for new vids to premiere at the con and themed playlists of 3-6 vids. They need things by May but they'd like to have an idea soon of what/how much to expect. Hey, vids are great and so is feminism, and so is [personal profile] chaila and from everything I here so is WisCon, so this sounds like an awesome opportunity all around.

Festivids!

sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (merry!)
This is my first year participating in Festivids, and it is great! I did watch and comment on some vids the last couple years but then last year I really regretted not signing up, so this year I did, even though exchanges are stressful and scary. It was indeed scary, and I didn't make any of the fabulous extra treats I had planned to do. But since the vids went live last weekend it's been really nice.

Someone made me a really awesome Never Let Me Go vid! It is beautiful and horrible and really skillfully done. I am glad it's getting nice comments though it's not a hugely popular source. On the other hand, I'm also glad that other folks are also commenting on the vid I made, even though that one's not so skillfully done. :) As [personal profile] fitz_y and I agreed about the old summerpornathon, I feel a little silly now for having been so nervous about this, it is all such a love fest.

So I spent a lot of time watching vids last Sunday but not enough since then. Still so many more to see! But luckily they will still be anonymous for another week!

I don't think I'll make a recs post because, really, what I recommend is going to the masterlist on Dreamwidth or on LJ and rolling around in it for a few hours or a few days. Vids! For rarely vidded sources! As gifts! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I made so few fanworks in 2013 that it doesn't make sense to do the questions meme, as much as I normally enjoy that, but I can't resist making a list and a graph.

a list and a graph )

So, you know, just my least productive year in fandom ever, but what are you gonna do. I would like to say some positive things:
-Lots of ladies!
-I like making sets of things! I think my [community profile] kink_bingo blackout with 25 different femslash ships for 25 different kinks is really, and so is my set of podfics in space.
-I had fun with that Amy/Rosa podfic last week, and it's made me want to get back into podficcing again. Conveniently, I expect to have a little more time alone at home over the next few months than I did the last few months.
-I know I will make at least one vid in 2014, because I'm signed up for [community profile] festivids and they are due in... ah ha ha less than two weeks! No, but it's cool, I have clipped and I have a song. I will manage something.
-Having just made a bunch of links, I think I will update my podfic index today, and maybe even post to [community profile] amplificathon
