summerpornathon 2015 recap

The latest round of [ profile] summerpornathon wrapped up yesterday. It was shorter this year and I didn't make anything much for the bonus challenge, so I just have these five fics, all Merlin fandom and approximately 750 words each. Title links go to the fics on the AO3.

Three Merlin podfics (Go Team Gluttony)

I made a podfic this week and realized I had two other shorter podfics from the last year that I hadn't posted here. Here they are!

Three summerpornathon podficlets

At the end of [ 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 [ 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 [ 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 [ profile] summerpornathon and at [community profile] kink_bingo and [community profile] camelot_fleet, and elsewhere.

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

summerpornathon ficlet 3: OT3

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.

summerpornathon plus fanworks links post!

I'm having a really good time with [ 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. (

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. :)

Summer update part 1: fandom

I signed up for [ profile] summerpornathon! I didn't do it last year but am really looking forward to going back. You know, a few months back [ 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:
-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.

The Fall: A frustrating viewing experience

Maybe two months ago B and I watched Top of the Lake, a six-episode series starring Elisabeth Moss (Peggy on Madmen) as a detective in a small town in New Zealand, on Netflix streaming. It was really good! Instead of having a case every episode it was all about trying to find one missing girl, and I know some people complained about pacing issues but we thought it was awesome.

So then B heard about another show, The Fall, starring Gillian Anderson as a tough detective in Belfast, and we thought yay, we would enjoy it the way we did Top of the Lake. It is about the same size, also following a single case (with some side stories), and sexism within the police force, and has a bunch of great actors and good production values and all that. In the first episode, besides GA we got to see John Lynch, who played Balinor on Merlin, and Laura Donnelly, who played Freya. Between that and the accents/setting I kept expecting to have Colin Morgan turn up as well. :) From the second episode on we also get Archie Panjabi (Kalinda on The Good Wife) and a bunch of the other people who are also great.

But after the first episode B said she couldn't take it (even though she's the big Gillian Anderson fan!) and I had to watch the rest by myself. Or you know, I could have not watched it, but I wanted to find out what happened! Turns out those five episodes were just the first season though, so nothing much got resolved in the episodes I watched.

Also (spoilers through the start of the second episode) )

In other news, [ profile] samyazaz wrote a really lovely little Gwaine/Freya space AU for the apocalypse/fuck or die challenge at pornathon last week and I was super pleased to see that it took first place in its group: The Stars Look Very Different Today. I also really liked the Gwen/Merlin AMTDI that was #71 in the same challenge; does anyone know who wrote it? I tried looking in the results post but I was overcome by the collapsed comments.

Hey all, thank you for your sweet birthday wishes last wee. My day off was not too awesome but I had nice days before and after and a lovely, fannishly productive weekend. I finished my first bingo for this round of [community profile] kink_bingo! And I feel pretty confident that I can finish two more (top row and middle row) before the end of October. I have ideas for all the squares I need to fill except for:
-temperature play featuring a trans or genderqueer character, or
-sex toys (non-penetrating) featuring a character of color. Suggestions welcome!

It's been a rough week for many people in podfic fandom. And even for folks who are doing well otherwise, it's always nice to have some extra love! Thus:
'Podficcers Love Meme' over sky and wheat field
Podficcers Love Meme: ON DW | ON LJ

Here is my thread. ♥ ♥ ♥

[personal profile] fitz_y got me signed up within an hour after [ profile] merlin_holidays opened yesterday! As often happens when I decide to go be social in mainstream Merlin fandom I felt very out of place at first, but I did see some more friendly names and signups later on. It looks like there are still five spots left for writers and unlimited spaces for artists and vidders with signups closing Thursdays. And it will probably turn out to be a lot of fun in the end, just like [ profile] summerpornathon was even though signups freaked me out both years. :)

Today I watched the second-to-last episode of the first season of Teen Wolf and stuff happened that either
-I'd been really frustrated hadn't earlier before because come on, people, or
-I'd heard vague things about before and was glad to finally see what the fuss is about,
so that was nice. I enjoyed it.

But this year I do, so finally recorded it, and I'm super happy with how it turned out. I love how well the act of reading a story out loud goes with the fic.

social media!

Gosh, I like Twitter and my friends there a lot, but I think I need to step away from it for a bit. I just feel like it eats up too much of my day. I like Tumblr a lot too but I use it pretty inconsistently - I haven't been on much lately because I've had inconsistent or slow Internet. So yeah, I think I'm gonna try not checking either of those for a week (starting tomorrow) and see how that goes. I'm also gonna cut back on how much time I spend in chat.

Maybe I will get better at communicating here on LJ and Dreamwidth! I used to be a lot more conscientious about answering every comment I got, and I'd like to get back into that habit.

Maybe I will get a ton of work done!

Or maybe I will just feel lonely and bored!

This seems like a good time to experiment though because I'll be somewhat busy with work stuff this next week.

In other news, I've started reading the new Crossovers/Fusions challenge at [ profile] summerpornathon and I'm enjoying that a lot - way more than I expected to! I had thought there would be a ton of Teen Wolf and Avengers crossovers and a bunch of other canons I didn't know and that I'd either be resentful or just confused with reading most of them. But there's a ton of variety and most of them are just fun, even for the fandoms I don't care for or am not familiar with. And that makes sense, I mean, of course most people are going to try to write something with broad appeal. Anyway, I recommend checking those out, and I'm looking forward to working my way through the rest of them.

I'm still getting over this sore throat and related feeling-generally-awful, but today I managed to record a couple short podfics, so I'm looking forward to editing those and crossing off another two bingo squares! Right now I'm feeling pretty confident about being able to get a blackout done during the regular round, and also hopeful about including five or so different Achievements within that. :)

I never ever spell the word Achievements right on the first try. :(

International Day of Femslash

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 [ 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!

Of the five pieces I've now written for this year's pornathon this is the only one where I'm really interested in writing more in the universe; but I think I'd rather do a separate prequel/remix than expand this one, so I'm reposting it as is. There was so much delicious robot sex in last week's challenge! Alas, there is no mechanical/technological square on my kink_bingo card to give me an excuse to podfic it.

a podcast and a podficlet

Cover showing two stylised shadowed persons; one is wearing a headset and typing on a keyboard, the other is speaking and hanging suspended. Text: [Exploring, perverting, failing, and sharing] [A podcast by Sophinisba & Yue-ix for kink-bingo]

[personal profile] yue_ix and I recorded a conversation about making/doing things other than fic as a ramp-up post for the new round of [community profile] kink_bingo! It lasts about 33 minutes and talks about bringing fandom kinks into different parts of your life, letting go of the desire to be perfect when sharing fanworks, and some other things. We talked a bunch about transformative works and then totally forgot to ask people to put up transformative works/blanket permission statements lol. Check out the post at the comm for download/streaming/transcription options, links to things we discussed, and hopefully comments from other listeners! There have been a ton of great posts (including audio posts) there in the last couple weeks. I'm so excited to start the new round!

I also made another tiny and not-at-all-porny podfic for the latest bonus challenge at [ profile] summerpornathon:
