Attention QaF Fandom
There is a very important event that happens every Holiday season. And I expect all of you talented artists and authors to participate. It will bring joy to someone else, joy to yourself, and joy to fandom. What could be wrong with that??
It's the 2009 QAF Gift Exchange
. And it's one of the coolest things that happens in fandom.
You can read Read the Rules
and ask questions here.
And you can Sign Up
Sign-ups close Oct 25th. Entries will be due Dec. 22nd. And ohfreckle
always works very hard on this project to get you your assignment(s) as quickly as possible after sign-ups close, so you should have plenty of time to complete your entry.
PS. All this happens at qaf_giftxchnge
. If you haven't joined there yet, you really should. All the entries from past exchanges can be found there, and some are really brilliant.
I feel a bit like i've ceased to exist here lately. I don't love qaf less. I just have more going on in life right now than I can actually handle and have had to move fandom to the back burner in a major way.
But I had to drop in for Cuddle Day
. And man am I glad I did! so much goodness I don't know where to start. I know I won't get to everything, much less comment on everything. But I'm going to try. And I love fandom so much for offering up so much cuddle goodness. I hope every one on my flist takes a look at the awesomeness and leaves lots of comment love.
And I'm temporarily switching my default to this one by ohfreckle
for a couple days. Cause it just makes me happy to look at it.
I have just finished all the fics at the current challenge at bj_action
. I am now going to go have some alone time. I'm sorry if that is too much information. But take it as a warning. If you are currently in a location where you cannot either take a cold shower and/or have some alone time, immediately after reading these fics, I would recommend saving them for later.
This was the most satisfying collection of fics I have read in a long time.
And best of all, they all took place during season 1. What a fantastic way to finish up the season since friday is the end of season 1 at qaf_marathons
:D The s1 voices in these PWPs was fabulous, and reminded me why I fell so hopelessly in love with Brian and Justin from the very beginning.
Also, please be sure to leave the author's your love. I don't even feel remotely guilty for harassing you to do this, because for once, i didn't write a fic, and i didn't run this challenge. I'm just an innocent bystander who knows good PWP when she reads it and is on a mission to make sure the writers of the world know we appreciate it.Here, I shall even give you a handy link to the Master List for this challenge
Your friendly fandom spammer has an announcement. The fabulous xie_xie_xie
has two very very important new things to share with the fandom.
First. We have a new asylum queer_as_news
. You should definitely go friend it/join it. This should be an awesome addition to teh fandom at IJ, keeping you up to date on the goings on so that you don't miss anything...plus, if everyone on my flist joined, i wouldn't have to spam you all so much with the pimpage :D
Second. GO TO THIS WEBSITE NOW! :D no seriously. Go.
Take a peak. I would not lead you astray. It is so FREAKIN cool. It has fandom links, xie!fic links, it's pretty and full of teh love and brian and justin and all that is good and wonderful in the world.
Ok...i will leave you all alone for at least the next 16 hours now i promise.
in case you missed it...BrianJustinLove.com: A Queer as Folk Fandom Resource Site
it's exciting and new. *wanders off to play on the website humming the theme to the love boat*
There seems to be a lot going on lately to keep track of, so i just wanted to pimp a few things.
First, if you did not subscribe to the ides_of_march
but would like to know, what was submitted for QAF you can check out the Master List
and click on the QAF tag.
Which brings me to my next bit of pimpage, the latest bj_action
challenge, you can find the links to the submitted fics here, on the Master list.
I won't say anything about mine, but the other two were just fantastic, so please read them, you won't be sorry, and leave the authors some love.
The sign-ups for the Art and Fic Challenge
officially end tomorrow, although late sign-ups are accepted. So please sign up, this is just an unbelievably cool idea for a challenge and i'm personally really excited for it.
has been really busy lately, you should check it out. If you haven't already done so, visit The QAF Friending Party and Say Hello. It's not too late, the party is still going strong.
Finally, don't forget that tomorrow night is
episode 110 at qaf_marathons
please stop by and squee or calmly discuss. And if you need some icons, visit ohfreckle
's journal, she just posted some fucking awesome 110 icons today. :D
see...i told you there was a lot going on. :D i'm sure i missed some of it too.
What is ides_of_march?
It is the asylum, or community that will host the multi-fandom challenge taking place on the 15th of March, 2008.Who can join?
Anyone and everyone from any and all fandoms.Why join? Why post?
Fandom solidarity, yo. Represent your own fandom, lure new converts, lol. What is going to happen on the 15th?
Posts of all kinds, art, fic, etc. From all fandoms, as well as orginial works. Worried about a flood on your flist?
You can join and post, without subscribing. Or, it is only for one day :D, so you can embrace the flood, and filter it off if you want to get a peak at the rest of your flist.Are there rules?
There are a few guidlines to follow, you can find them ides_of_march
on their profile page.How will I find
QAF the fandoms i'm interested in?
Everything will be tagged. :D
And you Ny, will you be posting? Yes. PWP via bj_action. A QAF icon post. The final installment of my Happily Owned Girl WIP. And possibly Ghost Hunters fic just for Sidhe, hehe.
Hope to see some of you there. :D
ides_of_march wants you to join us for a multi-fandom posting frenzy of fic and art.
As the guidelines say... all ratings, all pairings, all fandoms are welcomed and, more importantly, wanted!
March 15th... the day fandom takes over Insane Journal!
Annoyed with me yet? Oh well. Why am I pimping this two days in a row on my own journal? Beacuse:
A) I Want LOTS of QAF, people...I want Fic. I want Icons. I want graphics. I want doodles. I want comics. :D Am I asking too much? (just be sure to check out the rules...there aren't many)
B) Because OMG *squee* you know I'm an icon whore...and this one *points* by torino10154 well, I fucking love it :D and wanted to use it immediately.
i promise not to spam you anymore with this
on my personal journal anyway for at least the next week!
in case my other recent posts weren't enough of a clue in...this is just a reminder that episode 103 is now being discussed and squeed over at qaf_marathons
and will be until episode 104 airs next week.
So if you are in a different timezone, and can't come squee till later, that's ok! :D please do! and also, if you didn't actually watch the episode lately...you can still come discuss, i trust you remember it well enough...you know the one where justin takes off his shirt, dances his ass off, proves completely irresitable and brian, well, brian can't resist? yeah that one! so go! go squee! because it's one of the best fucking justin moments of all time god dammit. :P
When I first started watching I had this horrifying moment of feeling like I was going to have nothing to comment on. But I managed to leave lots of rather inane comments after all.
So if you get bored this week. Or you want to squee about 101. Please head over to qaf_marathons
and start a new thread, or join one already in progress. I will be popping back there all week long. Because I desparately want to move on to episode 102 but I'm not going to let myself
I think my rule will be that I'm not allowed to watch any episodes from the season currently being marathoned unless it is the week for them, or they've already been views. that way they will stay fresh :D
Ok, so i like large, and fisting, and all...but those aren't a particular kink of mine. So I'm a little surprised to be saying this, but I have to.
This was, by far, the best set of bj_action
challenge fics yet, and I still have two left to read. And you know why they were so fucking hot? Every single one of them goes way beyond just the fucking and is full of teh love, or teh humor, or both. Plus, the fucking, asdkfjal!!@! hot.
I haven't read one yet that I don't honestly love.
Please, do yourself a favor, and set sometime aside to read all of them this week. I promise you, you won't be disappointed. So. Very. Good.Theme #7
and of course, please tell the authors you enjoyed them, feedback is the sustenance of the muse.
in case anyone
testdog65, tweedygal, or vlredreign to name a few
missed it. You have until tomorrow, sometime, i can't remember exactly
and it doesn't really matter cause we'd never reject you if wanted to sign-up a bit late,
to sign up for the new challenge at bj_action
the theme could not be better, imo. it's justin getting fucked with some very very large
...what could be wrong with that? and as many people have pointed out, brian has very large hands, and as a special incentive, if you felt so inclined to write a fisting fic, ohfreckle
is offering her icon services to anyone who chooses to go the fisting route. I am sorry that other large items will not have a special icon reward, however you will have the reward of devoted and adoring fans the world over.so, um, go sign up at bj_action.
