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
sophinisba: Morgana and Gwen, text: Shh!  Nobody knows we're Lesbians (morgana gwen lesbians by hyel)
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.

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

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. :)

And special thanks and hugs to [personal profile] growlery for her lovely, gentle recording of my old Eowyn/Faramir ficlet There's Another Dance.

Merry femslash everybody!

The current mini-challenge at [community profile] kink_bingo is Tiny Bingos, and I decided to write a femslash drabble with a different ship for every square on my second card! Featured characters are Gwen, Morgana, Freya, Mithian, Morgause, Vivian, Nimueh, Ygraine, Hunith, Elena, Isolde, Annis, Kara, Enmyria, Sefa, Catrina, Alice, Finna, Lamia, and Sophia. (I'm sorry, Helen and Mary, you are still awesome!) Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] flammablehat and the folks on Twitter who cheered me on and prompted me with ideas.

You can Read them on the AO3 with "chapter" headings for the pairing, kink, and content notes (some noncon and dubcon, especially in the first set of 12). Or, if you prefer, you can read them all here without the notes!

1-12, canon-era, spoilers through 5x13 )

text: Merry Femslash, Amy!  3 Avengers and crossover podfics from @sophinisba for @such_heights, #itpe 2012; images of Pepper Potts, Natasha Romanov, Maria Hill, Darcy Lewis, and Amy Pond


I was delighted to be assigned to my buddy [twitter.com profile] such_heights/[personal profile] such_heights in the #InformalTwitterPodficExchange, not least because it gave me an extra opportunity to make femslash podfic gifts. Although we have a lot of fandoms in common and there were all sorts of exciting choices, I decided to go with a set of three Avengers pornfics featuring three different ships. I have had microphone issues in recent weeks and Avengers character voices are not exactly my specialty, so I hope you will listen generously. I found all of these stories to be fun and super hot, and I had fun recording them.

Tomorrow, July 14th, is International Day of Femslash! I am not going to give you a bunch of links because I am sick and very tired, but you can look them up! :D

Sometimes events like this can be weird. Some people do mostly femslash all year round and they don't see the point in doing something extra for one day. Some people have already come to the conclusion that they don't care for femslash, and trying it out for a day also seems silly. But there are also a lot of folks who maybe have some female characters that they like but just haven't gone out of their way to look for fanworks about them. There's so much boyslash on one's flist and one already has one's tastes, so why go looking for more heartache? But this can be a nice chance for all-year femslash fans to celebrate with each other as well as getting in everybody else's faces for a bit.

That's about where I was a few years ago when I first heard of IDF, and signing up for a femslash feedback challenge made a big difference for me. I gave myself something like 2 weeks to comment on something like 20 femslash fanworks, and it was great. It was one of the first times I'd sought out femslash and it started to give me a good idea of the pairings and patterns I like. If you are not normally a femslash reader or listener or looker-at of art etc., maybe you just want to make a point of commenting on one or two or five femslash works this weekend.

If you're participating in [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon, you know that there was some great femslash entries as part of the minor characters challenge this past week. I would guess that a few Merlin fans were writing femslash for the very first time and could use some extra encouragement. It could be fun to make a point of calling out some of those femslash fics in the reveals post tomorrow (along with the fabulous het and boyslash, of course!).

You could also post some recs, or say something about why you like your favorite f/f ship, even if you don't have any particular fanworks in mind. Maybe your flist can help you find those fanworks! Maybe you'd like to post a graphic on Tumblr or tell somebody you know how much you appreciate their enthusiasm for a ship. (Sunday the 15th is also Appreciation Day!) You could host a meme or make a fanmix or a podfic or a drabble or a doodle!

Or do whatever else you'd like to do with your Saturday!
