LAST DAY TO SIGN UP FOR REMIX REDUX X!!!

ALSO I DON'T KNOW HOW THE SCHEDULE WORKS BUT IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU VOTE FOR ABED AND KALINDA AT THE FANDOM STEEL CAGE MATCH with your main LJ account.



Kalinda is currently losing to some dude who is not Kalinda, but it's not too late to turn it around. Abed is in the lead but it's way closer than it should be, considering that he is Abed. THEY NEED YOUR HELP!!!

Oh hey, I was just tagging the post for my new bingo at [community profile] kink_bingo and I started to wonder if I could count it for the rare ship/rare characters Achievement. The rules say, "You define what is or is not a rare ship/rare character; this, like so much at Kink Bingo, is on the honour system."

Ahhh, I don't know! Will you help me decide? I feel pretty secure that Inara/Zoe from Firefly is a rare pairing and Annie from Treme is a rare character in fandom. If I were looking at the other squares I've filled so far I would also count Merlin/Will, Gwen/Lancelot, Freya/Merlin, and Freya/Morgana.

But what about Gwen/Morgana? It used to be a relatively popular pairing but it's never really been big compared to Arthur/Merlin, and there isn't much at all being written these days. Then there is Gus and Shawn, who are the main characters on Psych but don't actually get written about that much. And I just don't know much about Avatar fandom. Also, do you think the medium should matter? The Audiofic archive has one Azula/Ty Lee podfic and five Gus Shawn ones (two of them by me, all of them shorter than the one I posted yesterday). Gwen/Morgana poetry is certainly rare, but then any fannish poetry is rare, so, I don't know!

So here is a poll! Who doesn't like filling out a poll? Please be honest and don't vote yes just because you think it's what I want to hear! I am already getting a bunch of Achievements on this bingo so I will not be sad if I don't have this one as well.

My neck hurts! It's been been hurting since Sunday! It moves around my upper back and my shoulders, but it always hurts! Sometimes it hurts more when I turn my head or shrug my shoulders or when I eat. I went to bed early last night and slept close to ten hours, and today was just as bad!

Yay, posting has wrapped up at [livejournal.com profile] camelotsolstice! fest talk and recs and guessing )

If you have an opinion on what Merlin fic I should write next, please vote in the Finishathon poll at [community profile] camelot_fleet! You can also vote on 30 other fans' projects while you're there! SO MANY TICKY BOXES (plus a few radio buttons)! I, uh, had pretty much decided what I wanted to do before the poll went up earlier today, but I'm still really interested in the results. I'd like to know what you think even if you don't read my fic or even if you're not in the fandom. It could be just your way of saying, "I think there should be more genfic about girls!" or, "Sophie, I think you'd feel better about yourself if you finished the fic you started for last year's [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest."

Okay, I promise that any and all future Firefly posts of more than two lines will go under a cut. This one has to be above so the anti-Firefly contingent will notice and vote.

Right, so I'm currently halfway through [livejournal.com profile] gamerchick's DVDs, am filled with much love for almost all the characters, not to mention the writers, and I feel like telling the world. I wouldn't be watching the show if I hadn't so enjoyed watching Serenity last month, and I wouldn't have gone to see the movie if it weren't for the enthusiasm of several people on my f-list. A few of you have even written Firefly fic yourselves, and I'm very much looking forward to reading your stories once I finish watching the DVDs. However, a little bird told me that not everyone in "The Fandom" (um, let's say, the one with the hobbits) is as delighted with the Firefly-Serenity squee.

Rest assured, I will not be abandoning Frodo and co. But if I do want to say something about the hotness of Mal, the OTP-ness of Kaylee/Inara, or the MarySue-ness of River, how would you prefer that I proceed?

Please feel free to comment!

Are you like me? Do you like filling out questionnaires about your interests? [livejournal.com profile] alchemia has a poll about gender and sexuality in fandom (especially fanfic) that I enjoyed filling out, although the text boxes were a little small (how many characters does it take to answer the question "Why do you like slash?"?) and there's no female option on the gender question, so you have to tick other. She might write a paper about it or might not. Answers are confidential.
sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] laceymcbain is doing some research on interaction between fanfic readers and writers, especially on WIPs, with interesting questions like whether reader comments can affect the direction of a fic.  She has one poll for readers and another one for writers.  Doesn't take two minutes to go fill them out, and I'm sure she would appreciate your input.[profile]
