[community profile] incestbigbang OH MY GOD.

IT'S A BIG BANG FOR (same-gen, ie sibling and cousin) INCEST.

Gamma must partake.

Now, to decide: Bellatrix/Narcissa? Bellatrix/Andromeda/Narcissa?  Rodolphus/Rabastan? Bellatrix/Sirius? Something else?

BECAUSE I HAVE MORE FANDOM THINGS TO SHARE!

[community profile] queer_fest is open for prompting! It's a fest dedicated to queer characters (well, duh), and YOU SHOULD GO PROMPT BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME.

The masterlist is up at [livejournal.com profile] dysfuncentine, which makes me happy because I have fic to read for it :3 It's awesome to see so many rare pairs...! TWO DRACO/LUNA FICS AND NO DRACO/HARRY; WHAT ALTERNATE UNIVERSE HVE I STEPPED INTO? Take a look at the masterlist here.

Finally LOOKIE LOOKIE LOOK LOOK LOOK



[livejournal.com profile] hp_prisonerfest is open for sign-ups! It's an exchange based on prisoner relationships, and it's pretty much the most awesome thing ever. It was the first fest I ever participated in on LJ, and it's where I met [livejournal.com profile] flyingharmony (who made the gorgeous banner!) so there's all sorts of emotional connections to it for me :3

Finally, Month #1 of the Harry Potter Femmeslash Project has just come to a close. 48 femmeslash fics were written for it (!!) and I'm going to be reading them all quite soon...

The masterlist for February is here; take a look! All sorts of pairings and genres have been represented!
gamma_orionis: Image of the constellation "Orion" (Default)
First, I'd like to say hi and welcome to everyone who I've added recently (yay friending memes!) I look forward to getting to know all of you :)

Second, week three of [livejournal.com profile] darkarts_drabs is now open for sign-ups. The subject for this week is Severus Snape and "Advanced Potion Making", and last week, only two people participated in the challenge (I was one of them), so these should be good enough reasons for you to try it out :) Sign up here.

Third, prompt claiming at [livejournal.com profile] hprarefest is open! In addition to a huge number of awesome prompts, you can also choose to write your own prompt for any rare pair. The claiming post is here, the rules/FAQ are here and the banned pairings list is here.  Both art and fic are welcome, and I'm particularly hoping for a lot of femmeslash this year ;)

As of right now, Gamma has signed up for:
  • HBB with Sukhvinder Jawanda
  • HBB with Cassiopeia Black
  • VBB with dark!Luna
And I'm considering signing up for VBB again with Esther from Orphan.  Maybe.  Because even though that film traumatized the fuck out of me I'm still going back for more.

LJ Is Alive!
A Multifandom LiveJournal Friending Meme
Tumblr is great, but my fandom heart is in LJ.



(Hello and welcome to [livejournal.com profile] pinkelephant42 and [livejournal.com profile] ragdoll :))
gamma_orionis: Image of the constellation "Orion" (Default)
I'll admit, at first, I wasn't too jazzed about the prompts that were being left... they just weren't inspiring me much. But some of the recent ones have sent me into a "WRITE ALLLLL THE PROMPTS" state, and I'm actually going to have a hard time picking what to do :D (Draco/Luna? Bellatrix/Lily? Hermione/Viktor?)

Make it even harder for me to choose. Go on. I dare you ;)

The Heroine Big Bang is back!
[livejournal.com profile] heroinebigbang was the first big bang I ever did (I did it last year and wrote "Roses Lie Waiting", which is still one of my favourite things that I've written) and I'm extremely excited to see it coming back! It's a 15 000 word big bang where works must centre around a female main character, which means that everyone should do it because there always needs to be more female-centric work in the fandom! :D

There's also another big bang - run by the same person who's doing the heroine big bang - that's just announced itself. [livejournal.com profile] villainbigbang is also a 15K big bang, and the theme for it is (obviously) villains. I'd love to see Voldemort and the Death Eaters get some representation there, guys! :D

Third big bang thing: [livejournal.com profile] kink_bigbang is still looking for artists! There are a great variety of stories and fandoms that still need to be claimed including mine - it would be wonderful if those with some artistic skill could pop out and participate :D

First off, I'm now done the first semester of my last year in high school (thank GOD, finally!) and aside from, ahem, forgetting to hand in a few psych assignments (and, um, one or two English assignments <.< >.>) I think everything went okay. I've spent the last two weeks running around trying to do damage control (read: hand in the more important assignments for those classes), but now I'll finally be able to get caught up with gifting/reading/reviewing/posting/etc. YAY!

Now, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to anyone and everyone who voted in [livejournal.com profile] hpfanficfanpoll, because results went up today, and...







I'm so excited that "Her Lips Were Sweet" won first place - weirded out too, I'll admit! :D I popped "Her Lips Were Sweet" off in about twenty minutes for a femmeslash competition, and this is now the second award it's won (third, in a way, since one of the awards it won had two different tiers...). Odd xD No complaints, though! And I issue enormous congratulations to everyone else whose work was nominated and/or placed in the awards! :D

NOW LOOK LOOK AT THE PRETTY THING [livejournal.com profile] flyingharmony MADE FOR ME!!!

There's something extra-special about Crucible-themed gifts that just makes me grin extra-wide (not that HP gifts don't make me grin extra-wide, of course!) Also, DAMN, Daniel Day-Lewis is just mmmmm! I totally get why Abigail would go about killing half the village for him ;)

Claiming at [livejournal.com profile] dysfuncentine is open! There are a lot of really amazing prompts ready to be claimed - every conceivable pairing, plus lots of "any" ones. Go here for the prompt list/claiming post!

[livejournal.com profile] femmefest still needs more participants - it makes Gamma sad to see so few people signing up for such an awesome exchange. I will never understand why femmeslash is so underrepresented, but y'all should help fix that ;) (It makes me very happy to see so many people on my f'list signed up already, by the way - I hope I get to write for one of you!)

Posting is on for the winter fest at [livejournal.com profile] rarepair_shorts, and SOMEONE WROTE ME LUCIUS/ALICE HOW DO I EVEN EXPRESS MY HAPPINESS?  Lucius/Alice is one of the absolute rarest pairings of the many rare pairings that I ship - by which I mean that up until now, exactly no one except me (to my knowledge) ever written a real romance involving them.  NO ONE.  It's here and you should all read it :)  (Also, I bet none of you can guess what I wrote for the exchange... *giggles*).  I'm going to go through and try to read them all later...

So, how are you all?

Multifandom pretend dating/relationship fest!

Comment memes are so much fun, and you should definitely go over to this one and leave some prompts - especially for rare pairs, because in multi-fandom fests, there's always such a good chance that nothing rare will be prompted... *le sigh*


PROMPTING IS OPEN FOR HPRAREFEST!!  I'm so excited about it!  Pop over there right now to leave some prompts for your favourite rare pair!
gamma_orionis: Image of the constellation "Orion" (Default)


[community profile] femmefest is an exchange fest for HP femmeslash pairings, and if you haven't already signed up, you should go do so right now!  Heck, even if you don't normally write femmeslash, now's a great opportunity to expand your horizons... the Harry Potter femmeslash community is always woefully small and woefully underrepresented!
gamma_orionis: Image of the constellation "Orion" (Default)
Prompting has ended and the creating period has begun at [livejournal.com profile] lily_and_black, and if you've been feeling any sort of urge to create Lily/Black family-themed fanworks, you should definitely go check out the prompts. There were a lot of very interesting ones, and I can't write them all myself, so you should :)

Prompting has also begun at [livejournal.com profile] hp_getlucky! I'm still debating how and what to prompt - most pairings I like don't lend themselves spectacularly well to the theme of good luck, to be quite honest.  My version of "fluffy" is pretty much "less emotional abuse than usual".

[livejournal.com profile] all_the_squee is a new community, created by the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] smallbrownfrog with the purpose of promoting activity in the Harry Potter fandom. You can participate in [livejournal.com profile] all_the_squee by reccing and commenting on fanworks (there will be bingo cards coming soon, with squares that you can fill by doing a certain amount of commenting and/or reccing), and by offering custom challenges to celebrate specific aspects of the fandom (full details on that here). The bottom line is: You should participate in this community, because Gamma wants to see the Harry Potter fandom as full of activity as possible... and you want to make Gamma happy, don't you?

Finally, I'm creating accountability for myself by saying here that I'm going to do the fandom snowflake challenge ([community profile] snowflake_challenge ).  I would do day one tonight, but it's two in the morning and I'm half asleep, but stay tuned for that in the very near future.

If it's any consolation, I come bearing tidings of a(nother) community!

High Stakes Word Wars


[livejournal.com profile] highstakes_ww is a word war community at heart, but it's so much more than that. Instead of just starting a war and writing - which, I've noticed from other word war comms, usually ends up giving most people about 500 words to 45 minutes - you have a word war, and the loser writes the winner a drabble.

Can I even begin to detail all the ways in which this is an awesome idea?

I'll admit that it seemed a touch counterproductive to me at first (the person having more trouble writing writes more? Hmm...), but it offers AMAZING incentive to write faster than whoever you're warring against.

The incomparable [livejournal.com profile] y3llowdaisi3s has already written me a story for it - it's here, and you should go read it so that you can see what sort of amazing prizes you can get by participating. WHAT MORE INCENTIVE COULD YOU POSSIBLY NEED?

High Stakes Word Wars
gamma_orionis: Image of the constellation "Orion" (Default)


[livejournal.com profile] writerverse is a writing-centred land comm. It runs in a relatively standard way: You get assigned to a team (poetry or prose; prose is the awesomest team because I'm on it ;) ), there are challenges of various sorts, you get points for completing challenges, and you get to practice your writing while you do it. What's not to love, right?

There's an awesome amount of variety in the challenges - there are "weekly quick fics", where you're given a list of prompts and have to incorporate at least one or two of them into a fic, there are specific challenges where you write, for example, different types of stories or poetry, nonfiction, or even do something other than just writing, like cartooning or outlining.

I definitely recommend checking it out if you're interested in improving your writing skills, meeting new awesome people, and generally having a good (word-filled!) time.

Nomination period: October 1st - October 28th, 2012
Voting period: November 1st - December 31st, 2012
Winners announced: by January 10th, 2013



Due to what I'm sure is some sort of fluke in the space-time continuum or something, not one, not two, but three of my stories have been nominated for [livejournal.com profile] hpfanficfanpoll.  I know, weird, right?  

For Her Sake (Dudley and Pansy) has been nominated for Best Drama/Angst Story - Medium Fic
Ghost of a Rose (Rabastan/Andromeda and Rabastan/Voldemort) has been nominated for Best Drama/Angst Story - Long Fic
Her Lips Were Sweet (Andromeda/Lily) has been nominated for Most Romantic Story - Femmeslash Couple.

I wish that [livejournal.com profile] hpfanficfanpoll told us who nominated us, because I would like to thank whoever did from the very bottom of my heart ♥

THING ONE:

THERE IS A THREESOME FIC EXCHANGE GOING ON AT [livejournal.com profile] hp_3somes.  YES.  YES.  YES.  And you people should join so that I know there'll be people I can write for because everyone in the whole universe seems to only ship Weasley things...

THING TWO:


banner by [livejournal.com profile] nearlyconscious
The first themed round of [livejournal.com profile] hp_kink_memes has started :D  The theme is "rare pairs", so there's lots of room to play around... and the unthemed round is still running, if you happen to get a craving for a non-rare pair :)
THING THREE:
I'm going to be spending the evening writing Bellatrix/Rodolphus/Narcissa.  Life is goooood.

THING FOUR:
Random: is anyone else having an issue with LJ where some of the words in default layouts seem to be in Russian?  Like, the "Post a new comment" thing says "Yeni bir mesaj gönder"...?
gamma_orionis: Image of the constellation "Orion" (Default)

The first (and unthemed) round of [livejournal.com profile] hp_kink_memes is now running :D  I feel rather proud of myself, really, and I do hope that there will be some interest ;)

(In hindsight, I probably should have planned a little more before deciding to run this, but whatever.  Let Draco's smouldering glare distract you from my impulsiveness)

In her sickness, her delirium and her... Gamma-ness, Gamma has decided to go ahead and make a community dedicated to kink memes.  Because Gamma loves her kink memes.

There's a list of rules here, a poll for the first themed round here and a collection of banners here.

I'm not sure when I should open the first one... I'm thinking next Friday.  Thoughts?  Ideas?  Requests?  Cold-FX?

My God, someone needs to get me away from this computer before I make twenty thousand more communities.

(Also, random, I love the set of tiny icons that I found for it xD  *Immature laughter*)

If you belong to the community and haven't already voted in the poll, it would be awesome to hear from you!  We want to know what sort of activities our members are interested in!  (Also, we've officially had our first non-mod post, which is weirdly exciting.  Go post more things there, members.  We want you to).

Thing one:

worshipdarklord is hosting a friending meme!  If you're a member, you should go participate and make new, LV-loving friends, and if you aren't a member, you should be.

Thing two:

As the first step of my "make draco_and_luna not dead" plan, there's going to be Draco/Luna bingo going on.  There's a list of prompts from which you can choose and you only have to create a minimum of three fanthings related to Draco/Luna to participate, so if you have any interest in Draco/Luna, you should pop over and participate in that.

Thing three:

It's the last day of claiming at <a href="luna-romance.livejournal.com>luna_romance</a>! &nbsp;GO. &nbsp;GO CLAIM PROMPTS. &nbsp;THEY ARE PRETTY AND SHINY AND WAITING FOR YOU. Cross-posted from LiveJournal. Comment on either site &hearts;
