As of Jan 1, Pinboard is going to an annual payment model versus the one-time-only payment model it uses right now. Which is to say, if you want a lifetime account for $10.55 on what is as far as I can tell the internet's best bookmarking site (to be fair, I don't know of any others besides Delicious), do it by the end of the month.

This website is nabbing and reposting LJ fic. I'm told the admin will take down stuff down if the author complains, but is otherwise standing firm on his perceived right to repost anything he likes without permission. [livejournal.com profile] ladydragon76 has more information.

[livejournal.com profile] kwritten, there's TVD fic on the first page that was written for you, but it doesn't say who it's by. Taken care of.

1. Meg/Cas Week on Tumblr, March 25-31, which I already have a fic idea for. :DDD

2. [livejournal.com profile] rocksalt_recs is looking for reccers for April. This reccing comm, less than a year old, is already one of my favorite fannish resources for fic. I'm particularly fond of the categories for rarer stuff - minor characters and het and non-J2 RPF - but there's plenty of stuff for more mainstream genres and pairings as well. Basically, it is THE BEST THING, but it only works if lots of people like you sign up and make it awesome.

(And in case you're worried that maybe the stuff you like isn't the right stuff to rec, I was worried about that, too, at first, but seriously, if you like it, then it is the right stuff.)

3. I totally failed to mention this before the first round closed, but [livejournal.com profile] spnartistswap is a super nifty-looking challenge comm for artists where people submit sketches and then swap and make finished pieces. First results to be posted sooon!

I've concluded that one of the reasons I find Yuletide stressful (and thus why I haven't done it for a couple of years) is the pressure of writing a giftfic for someone whose enthusiasms are really different than mine. Obviously that's a hazard with any exchange, but for Yuletide fandoms I feel it more? I don't know.

Anyway, the obvious solution is to write treat fics instead for whatever prompts take my fancy! All the prompts go live around Christmas Eve, I think, but I'm already at home on Ye Olde Dial-Up Connection by then, and that's really inconvenient. Hence, the the Dear Yuletide Letter spreadsheet of amazing is a wonderful, wonderful invention. I've just spent half an hour trawling for things that might maybe result in plotbunnies.

Testimonial: I got Wallace & Gromit fabulousness one year from someone who wasn't even assigned to me. So yes, people do actually do this!

All of which is to say, if you've signed up for Yuletide and wrote a Dear Yuletide letter, be sure to drop a comment at the collection post so it can be added to the spreadsheet! Because then someone might find it and write you something extra. (Protip: if you include the actual text of your sign-up prompts in the letter, too, it makes it easier for random people to write you things.)

Also, FYI, Yuletide signups are still open until here until the 31st.

James Marsters and Sarah Michelle Gellar smile and laugh with Joss Whedon on the set of 'Once More With Feeling.' Text: Get It Done, a motivation-a-thon.

[livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni has decided Jossverse fandom needs a boost in the form of a motivation-a-thon. The theory here is that you make whatever commitment you like to finish some project you're working on or start a new one you've been wanting to start by the early December deadline. Fic, vids, fanmixes, whatever media you like is welcome. Graphics folks are especially welcome, as Brutti is hoping to get a little bit of a mini-bang going, where people make art to go along with the fics.

Personally, I'm going to use this as an excuse to finish that Faith&Giles snowbound-in-a-cabin fic that I've posted precisely one chapter of so far.

If this sounds like your thing, click on the banner above or check out the comm, [livejournal.com profile] letsgetitdone.

1. Artist claiming is still open over at [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang. If you're interested, you can see all the prompts by joining the comm and then going here (post locked to non-members). If you see a prompt you want, sign up at the artist sign-up post and then claim. There are still intriguing prompts available! And also mine.

EDIT: Mine's claimed now! My self-serving PSA totally worked, you guys. :D

2. Over at [livejournal.com profile] shipswap (which mod team I have joined! hurrah!) we're looking for online resources for nominated canons. We're especially interested in resources for minor canons, but anything you can point us to - wikis, script databases, legal sources of canon, etc - would be appreciated.

If you don't like the new LJ cuts, here's a bit of code that you can put in your custom CSS section in order to see the old LJ-cuts:

.ljcut-link { color:transparent; margin-left:-15px; }
.ljcut-link:before { content:"( "; color:#000000; padding-left:15px; }
.ljcut-link:after { content:" )"; color:#000000; }
.ljcut-link a { margin-left:-5px; }

[livejournal.com profile] snowpuppies is organizing a Feedback-a-Thon.

Basically: you sign up with a list of three BtVS/Ats works you'd like feedback on. (This could include artwork or vids as well as fic.) You get a list of three authors with three works each, and you write "meaningful feedback" for at least one work per author. Meanwhile, three different people each give you feedback on at least one of your three works.

If I understand the rules correctly, when you sign up you can choose whether or not to receive concrit as part of your feedback. (That seems like at least half the point of this to me, so I would definitely want to.)

OTOH, if you're really more excited about giving the feedback than getting it, you can participate unofficially. [livejournal.com profile] snowpuppies says there will be a masterlist of fics by Jan. 15.

Anyway. Yeah. This is very nifty, and I'm excited.

As usual Buffyverse Classic Recs is coming the end of October. Yay!

Now, I have a question for y'all: is there any particular sort of thing you'd be interested in seeing recced? I've gone through a lot of my favorite topics already for previous classic recs sessions, but if y'all have something you'd like to see recs of, I might could accommodate you. :)

This is the fest that inspired me to finally post my first Buffyfic three years ago (the matching set of Spike&Darla fics, specifically), and two years ago someone wrote me some Faith/Giles. [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni, in fact. The first fics in the Rulesverse, in fact. (I will never not be squeeful about inspiring the Rulesverse.)

So. Make a list of things you would like, and then go make other people things they would like. Simple and fun!
