There's a Kingsman community here on DW now! *squee* Just in time for the release of the official trailer for Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle. Which I found yesterday and have watched about twenty times since. *g*

Watch it on YouTube!

[community profile] kingsmantailors - it's newly created and of course still empty yet, so please come over and join. It would be so awesome to have some Kingsman fanworks or discussion here on Dreamwidth!

DW Anniversary [Apr. 22nd, 2017|11:20 am]

Seen this all over my dwircle, and well, today is mine, so here you go:

When I created my journal on DW, I was determined to make it my home right away. My history with both LJ and IJ had been rather short (LJ) and not so happy (IJ), and I was all for making a new start.

In 2006 I joined LJ after much persuasion by [personal profile] kennahijja. Until then I was getting by with mailing lists, yahoo groups and reading on archives. It took a bit, but I found journal style fandom to my liking. When HP fandom did their mass exodus to IJ in 2007, I followed them over. After all, spending one year on LJ hardly made me feel any loyalty or nostalgia for the site.

And I liked it well enough on IJ at first, so I bought myself several permanent accounts and a ton of extra icons for very cheap. Fandom life around me was very active, and I had a lot of fun. Until comment rot started to befall my journal. For whatever reason comments simply vanished. Some older ones, but some also freshly posted, right during the time it took me to make a new one.

That problem got magically fixed in 2009, right about when people had started moving over to DW. By then it was too late for me. I had lost several hundred comments and grown slightly bitter about it. I left IJ for DW for good, and although I decided to cross-post to IJ, it was more a thing of backing up my entries instead of inviting discussion over there.

So, my journaling history looks like this:

2006 - 2007 LJ (one year)
2007 - 2009 IJ (two years)
2009 - 2017 DW (eight years)

Yeah, I've been more than twice as long on DW than on both LJ and IJ together.

Random Fandom Ramblings [Apr. 20th, 2017|06:37 pm]

[Current Mood | grumpy]

So, my tendency towards fandom monogamy sometimes really messes with my enjoyment of new (or simply different) source material, and that can be pretty annoying.

I buy a lot of DVDs (often second hand and very cheap, thanks medimops! And hell, I'm not even going to mention all the stuff I dled), and there's quite a number of movies and shows in my collection that I haven't watched yet. Should be awesome, right? Lots of stuff to watch, yay!

But every time I start something new I run the risk that I completely fall for the new thing. To the point that my current love kinda fades into oblivion. Well, that sounds a bit too strong for what really happens, but yeah. When I'm riding on a fandom high, I'm often very reluctant to watch something new, because that feeling that I just enjoyed so much could stop in the course of a single episode of another show.

It's not a conscious decision on my part, of course, and it's not that I fall out of love with my other fandom(s), exactly. But if I really want to enjoy gorging myself on art/fic/meta/vids/whatever for my current main fandom, I need to be very careful what media I consume during that time.

Yeah...you guessed it already. That weekend DVD binge with [personal profile] thistlechild wasn't really helpful to me in that regard. Only consolation is that I was already throwing side glances at my collection to decide what to watch next, because production of new fanworks for my current obession are starting to trickle away, and it's getting harder and harder finding quality stuff I haven't seen/read yet among the older works.

*sigh* Let me tell you, I like my fandom butterfly phases a lot better than my monogamous ones!

...bear-vengers strictly speaking. However, the boys (Tsum-Tsums Poe and Finn) wanted a date night out.

Here they are then when I did my last show, You're A Good Man Charlie Brown. You can see Snoopy's Dog House!

Update )

Fandom/internet things though!

I've got a secret project I'm working on. Well. Will be helping with. It's not fic specific, but is fandom specific. I'm excited. I have to get work on the details, but...I'm excited!!

I have stumbled back to tumblr. a-lafaye.tumblr.com

My muse is starting to creep back. I keep getting flashes of things. So there will be fic in the future. Slowly but surely it'll come.

11th Birthday Bash: KINKO! [Apr. 16th, 2017|01:38 pm]

Introducing our final party game: KINKO!
It's link BINGO, only dirtier. ;)



You can probably already guess how this works. Below the cut is our KINKO board with kinky themes in each square. The object of the game is to complete works of fiction and/or art for each theme in a line -- horizontal, diagonal, or vertical.

- Works need only be 100-word drabbles or drawbles -- but of course they can be longer/more involved, and we won't be running anything through a word counter.
- When you've completed a line, leave your pieces in comments to this post.
- Leave all of your pieces for a line in a single comment thread; combine multiple pieces into a comment when possible/appropriate (e.g. multiple 100-word drabbles should easily fit into one comment box).
- Let us know which line you've completed -- "first horizontal," "third vertical," etc. "First diagonal" will be the one that runs from top left to bottom right; "second vertical" will be the one that runs bottom left to top right.
- If you do multiple lines that contain the same box, you must write/draw a different piece for each line (i.e. five pieces to complete a line each time).

This game has the possibility of prizes attached!


When you've completed a line, your name goes into a prize drawing. Your name goes in once for each line that you complete. I.e., complete five lines, get five "lottery tickets."

There will be three winners. The first two names drawn get the opportunity to choose two of our kinks/themes for July or August. The third gets to choose the alternate pairing for either July or August. Any themes/pairing you like, whether previously used or entirely new. You pick the themes and the month(s) to put them in.

Note that each person can only win one prize. In other words, completing multiple KINKO lines increases your odds of having your name drawn but won't allow your name to be drawn more than once.

Got all that? Then without further wordage...

Behold: The KINKO board! )

Who'll be the first to call KINKO??

11th Birthday Bash: Dirty Drabble/Drawble Day 7 [Apr. 15th, 2017|12:59 pm]

Day 7 -- the final drabble/drawble challenge! Tomorrow we'll be starting a new party game with some prizes attached...



Rules? What rules?

To share your results, simply post them in a comment to this entry.

You need not use the both prompt words/phrase directly in your piece. Allow the prompt to influence and inspire you any way it will.

By definition, a drabble is exactly 100 words and a drawble is a rough sketch equivalent. However, we're not going to be running anyone's work through a word counter here. Just have fun with it!
