Here is a few things in no particular order!

Signal boosts:

1. [ profile] pikasafire is hosting a not-in-November Nanowrimo! 50k in a month, and it doesn't even have to be ONE fic. I am going to try to finish all these WIPs I got lying around. We'll see how well I do with that, eh?

2. Over on dreamwidth there is a Really Awesome Looking Bandom Rec Meme going on. I read all the way to the bottom and got sad when I ran out of comments, so go rec stuff! There's a lotta Panic happening RN and you know what they say about variety? \o/?

3. [ profile] bigbang_mixup looks interesting! It's a reverse big bang where you can submit a fanmix and someone will write fic to it. Sadly, this one is all-fandom and it looks like no one from bandom is signed up as yet. I started thinking about a mix I'd like to make and wound up bunnying myself with a story. Oh my GOD I am NOT allowed to start any new fics. No no NO.

Has there ever been a Bandom Reverse Big Bang? That would be awesome. Someone should get on that. :D?

4. In my bbb procrastinations, I updated my Masterlist! Thanks everyone for your kind input in the poll, it was most helpful!

5. People are starting to talk about their BBB posting dates and art and mixes, but I haven't got mine yet /o\. Wave 2 has been so weird for me because it hasn't been a crazy big rush with me writing 20 000 new words in the last weeks before deadline. The fic itself hasn't really CHANGED that much in a while and I keep getting stuck in the "ugh, I don't like it, no one will read it whine whine whine" place. But hey, I am VERY excited for lots of new fic and so many of my favourite writers have written for this wave, so that's cool.

6. Anyone got time to look over a little 2k ficcy thing for me?

7. Because I am a sheeple, let's have this meme that everyone is doing:

If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.
— Alfred Hitchcock

When I write a story, what do you immediately look for?

I know, I know, porn. Humour me?

I've seen a reverse big bang for bandom be talked about a few times over the years, but it's never came to anything, which is sad because I think it would be amazing.

In your stories I look for a mixture of hot sex but also well written personal relationships that mean the stories always have that emotional connection. It's a really lovely combination.

Ugh, I kind of sort-of want to try and start a Bandom Rev BB now, despite my whole not-really-having-lots-of-time and also the whole never-modded-a-comm-before-let-alone-a-fest. But I DO think it would be a lot of fun, and hopefully get artists and mixers more feedback too, because what they do is just as creative as writing.

Aww, wow, thank you, that's the best thing to hear, because it IS so important to me for it to be more than JUST sex. Well, most of the time!

You should do it!

Every time I've seen this brought up there's been a lot of interest, and you're right, the artists and mixers should get more attention. *enables*

You're welcome ♥

[identity profile] 2011-08-16 02:59 pm (UTC)(link)
I would LOVE to see a fest, a meme, whatever, based on art. Writing the story behind a picture? YES PLEASE.

Aw man, you guys are such enablers. I might have to make a specific Expression Of Interest post to see if it's a viable thing...

[identity profile] 2011-08-16 07:33 pm (UTC)(link)

If it takes place after my Panic! concert in October, I might be willing to help out...

Of course, that runs into NaNo then, so maybe not a good idea. I don't know how many bandom people do NaNo.

Ugh! I don't even know where to start! Okay, this is a lie, like I wasn't totally looking at other fandom reverse bang comms brainstorming. Ugh, I'm insane, but I think I've managed to twist [ profile] mizubyte's arm to help me. This might actually happen.

I haven't got my posting date yet and I know it won't be for a while. /o\ I have so many THOUGHTS about my fic precisely because I don't love it enough, and I want to post it so I can talk about it. Damn it!

I can look over 2k fic if you either send it right now or don't mind waiting twelve hours to get it back.

[identity profile] 2011-08-15 08:30 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't need to look for porn in your stories, it's just THERE. But what I look for is what's going on emotionally in the porn, what it says about the relationships involved, how people are changed, etc etc. In Hard Candy it's Frank discovering a way to explore his bisexual side without it being too scary. In Emergency Contact it's Pete needing reassurance and support from Mikey while both of them are being really careful and attentive with Patrick to figure out what he needs. In James Cameron Got It Wrong there's a lot of wonderful complicated stuff which I talked about at length on IM. It's not there in every fic you write - In Production, for example, is one I love but the relationships don't feel as important - but it's there in most of them and it's what I look for, which is what this meme is all about, right?

[identity profile] 2011-08-15 09:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Ahahahahaa, YOU HAVE A POINT. Though I HAVE written like, two? Three? Pornless fics.

Wow what a well thought out and detailed answer! That's so cool that that's what you look for, because I think even if I don't specifically PLAN that kind of stuff for my fics, I think a lot of the time when I get bunnied with an idea what draws me to it is the relationships. Like, how will this situation affect the porn relationship?

Yes, it's ALL about you babe, and what YOU look for. No wrong answers!

Yeah, I'm not expecting a posting date anytime soon, I submitted pretty late!

Ooh thank you! It's another one of my Fox-fails-at-commentfic things. Shouldn't take long? \o/? Will email you.

i'm doing the nanowrimo thing too. yay whining together on twitter haha and haven't gotten my bbb email yet either.

idk, what is it about this wave? i feel a lot worse about my story than i did with wave one. can we whine together as well please? i'm all "this sucks, no one is going to ever want to read anything of mine ever again after this, boooooohoooooo i'm so poooooor"

LOL we are such a pair of moaning Myrtles aren't we? I don't expect my BBB email for a while yet, it's just nice to know I'm not the only one who hasn't gotten it yet.

Yeah IDK, this wave has been WEIRD for me. I never finish this early, and I am usually DESPERATE for a late posting date so I can keep madly tweaking, but this time I kinda just want to get it OVER with, which is so not a healthy reaction. IDK. WEIRD.

*huge hugs*

we are! we should get our grannie sweaters on and start bitching about today's youth...

same! gosh i keep thinking i should use the time and improve it but i just want to get it out of my way and then deny its existence >.< i'm not even looking forward to preparing to post it. it's just all around weirdness *flaps hands* AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

*biggest hugs*

Still waiting for my bbb e-mail too /o\ waiting sucks!

That nano thing looks really interesting. I was going to do the normal nanowrimo this year, but I've done enough stressing myself over deadlines and word limits thanks to the SEVEN bigbangs I've signed up to.

*head desk*

I know. I suck, right?

I look for those magical words in your fic that I so long to see...NEN Sequel/Pizza verse *siiiiigh*

[identity profile] 2011-08-15 09:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah I think between the two waves of bbb I've done my dash. Well wave one was pretty major for me. I'm going to use the nano thing to try and finish stuff, not set off on some great lengthy fic adventure.

LOL, you are so hung up on pizza verse! It's not that I've never considered writing more, it's just IDK where it would go? Like, they're together now! They're content! And I really don't do curtainfic, and I don't like the idea of introducing something to create tension just for the hell of it. Hmm, IDK, I'll never say never, but that's my current headspace.

[identity profile] 2011-08-15 09:25 pm (UTC)(link)
lol, I'm not trying to MAKE you write more...and I'd never expect another 20k+ fic with some epic flaily teenage drama or anything...I don't know...just *sigh* Anything really. Another day at work. Another party. Sexytimes. I don't even know why I'm so hung up on pizza verse, lol. I just really really love it/enjoyt it every time I read it.

[personal profile] turlough 2011-08-15 09:29 pm (UTC)(link)
1) Yay!! I like when the writers I like say they want to try and write more ;-)

3) I wish someone wanted to organise a bandom reverse big bang. I can never sign up to do art for multifandom big bangs because I'm so terribly monofannish.

5) I didn't even know you were writing a story for this wave too! I must try to figure out which one it is. I can't believe that wave two is actually bigger than wave one. I was so sure it would be much smaller.

7) I was going to say Frank/Gerard but you do occasionally write other pairings :-)

It's difficult to pin down exactly how you do it, but the way you write Gerard is very characteristic. It's particularly noticeable in sex scenes but it's present at other times too. I really, really like it in any case and always look forward to reading your stories because of it.

I am maybe considering running a bandom reverse bang now (GASP) because I'm all in love with the idea, so if there is enough interest it just might happen. I have possibly even talked [ profile] mizubyte into agreeing to help, as she has actual modding experience.

IF it were to happen - IF - would you possibly be interested in making a community banner/header for pimping? *bats eyes*

I'm not surprised you didn't know I was writing for wave 2, I've hardly whinged about it at ALL where last wave I was nattering on about all my pain and woe in nearly every post, whine whine whine! Do let me know what your guess is! I doubt anyone has picked it as me, I totally flunked the summary.

LOL, I actually write other pairings quite often! Which was driven home rather strongly when I was redoing my masterlist. It would be so much easier if I wasn't so slutty in my pairing preferences, it would've saved me a lot of formatting.

Wow, thank you for the compliment! I love the idea that you are getting character out of the porn scenes, and that it's in there to be found. Thank you.

[personal profile] turlough 2011-08-16 08:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Yay!! I'm going to keep my fingers crossed there will be enough interest to make it work.

Sure! Mail me on turlough [at] bahnhof [dot] se and we can talk it over.

Nope, still haven't managed figure out which one is yours. I'm so bad at guessing! And you not keeping to just one pairing doesn't make it any easier to guess either :-)

[identity profile] 2011-08-15 09:33 pm (UTC)(link)
I've seen/been involved in a little bit of kind of reverse BBB talk awhile back with some of my other (fan)art friends. They don't really do that kind of thing so much anymore but it was pretty much the same as that really, to create a piece of art then others create a story to go with it. I like the idea...though i feel it would give me way more stress/fear/pressure than regular BBB. I suppose the epic stress should be shared around a little though.

Im excited for this wave of BBB to kick off...but not too cause my art is actually the worst as i got all confused in the head about dates/thought i had more time than i did and didn't start on the piece till deadline day /o\ Ugh, not looking forward to that going up. Oh well, it will still be much fun :3

Mmm well I think a reverse bang that offers art AND mixes up for authors to write to could be really fun and really interesting, as long as enough authors are interested.

Here is a question, for an artist such as yourself - I noticed that a lot of the other fandom reverse bangs, the claims (a draft of the art) were anonymous, but once claimed they would pair up the artist and author to be in communication with each other. I actually found that a little weird, like I would have thought the entire process would remain anonymous like in regular big bangs. So, the question! As an artist would you prefer to just put a piece out there and see what your author came up with on their own, or would you want to be involved/in communication with them?

I'm sure your bbb piece is wonderful. Sometimes working under pressure is a great way to get good results! Don't worry.

[identity profile] 2011-08-17 05:46 pm (UTC)(link)
I think with artists, it is going to be more difficult for the whole thing to be completely anon in posting things for claiming like bbb is. Some people's styles are going to be pretty recognisable i think.

I personally wouldn't want to be paired up with whoever claimed a piece of mine to write for. That's from my standing as someone who doesn't write though, but even if i did i think it would still be the same. I don't think that kind of pairing up happens much in regular bbb and im more than fine/would prefer to see someone's take on a piece of art or a mix from a totally different perspective without further input from myself.

Ugh, i'm dreading it going up /o\ I am a major procrastinator with my art sometimes and the last couple of weeks have been the worst for me with that kind of thing. I keep looking at the piece i did and cringing but i'll just have to wait and see. I can always make it up to the person with another piece when everything goes up i guess. I forever worry and fret with bbb /o\

[identity profile] 2011-08-15 10:52 pm (UTC)(link)
1) that seems highly tempting. And, I mean, I do have to write a horrorbb, so that's 10k right there.

2) I'm going through my delicious, trying to see if there's anything that won't have been recced 500 times. I thought you might want to know you are my first MCR bookmark. (I got into bandom through panic gsf, so the first dozen are that) mmmm, price of pretty.

3) I haven't signed up because there's no bandom. It would be awesome if there was a bandom only one.

4) Pretty masterlist! And by pretty I mean organised.

5) I like my story, I'm just worried it's going to get stamped with fail. It shouldn't, I have real life similar experience and I researched a ton. But it's still possible. *crosses fingers*
ext_399013: (Default)

[identity profile] 2011-08-16 08:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Go on and sign up if you haven't already!

Really? Your first MCR bookmark? I am SO chuffed! Now I am super curious which story it was.

Ugh, okay, if there is enough interest there may well be a bandom one *whistles innocently*

I'm sure your BBB will have a great reception! Don't doubt me!

[identity profile] 2011-08-17 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
I'd like to draw your attention to the fact that there are 20ish other people's comments on here, and they all want one. And that's without pimping at all. If you can get an even bigger name fan to sign on then THE WORLD IS YOOOOURS.

If nothing else, my art amuses the fuck out of me. I wrote a semi-throw away comedy scene and she drew that, and every time I look at it I start to laugh again. It's totally an awesome comment in itself.

I can't remember how I found you, but I did. It was The Price of Pretty. I distinctly remember googling Frank Iero because I didn't know what he looked like, but he was spanking someone and that was awesome. *snicker*

[identity profile] 2011-08-16 03:52 am (UTC)(link)
1) I ummmm already signed up...*headdesk* only 50k in a month right? and it doesn't have to be one fic but many.. I can do this..right?*headdesk*

2)I'm never good at reccing and get too nervous but now I want to go hop on by and see if there's anything I haven't read yet.

3)It's such a shiny Idea and I thought about signing up for mixing something bandomy but it's soo barren of bandom that I got/keep getting nervous. Also I'd totally be in if someone started up a reverse mix bbb

4) I love masterlists they are shiny and awesome

5) I still have heard nil about my date and info and it makes me *bite nails* and I don't know wave two has seemed very loose and just almost forgotten in a way. I lov mine but I feel no rush. and I hope people don't hate hate hate loath it..

I'm sure you'll get your email soon if you haven't already!

And yeah, I am doing what I can to see if I can make the idea of a reverse big bang for bandom a feasible thing. :D?

I haven't gotten my posting date either, but I want that email like right now!!! :-)

I'm okay with my fic - I randomly have tiny things I still want to change, but it's mostly small stuff (like I turned Frank's bike into a BMX, because he actually drives one. ;-)) - it's nothing that concerns the plot, I've made my peace with it.

I'm sure you'll get your email soon! I've been crap at commenting, but I've been keeping an eye on your notes about your fic in your journal and it sounds ACE. Also, much respect that you were concerned about realism given when its set enough to get a beta for that, that's dedication.

[identity profile] 2011-08-17 05:20 am (UTC)(link)
wow, thank you for saying that!

I got my email in the meantime, late posting date, which is okay, and very lovely art and a wonderful fanmix. I'm happy now! :-)

the good thing is that I really love my story - this is so important. some stories you loathe and you feel like they are never good enough.

There's a few of them around in other fandoms, but apparently it's never been done in bandom. I am still in a "hypothetical" place with the idea of it, but slipping fast...

Thanks for the offer, I may well take you up on it, depending on how things go!

[identity profile] 2011-08-17 12:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Every once in a while I get an itch to start up a bandom remix challenge, but I never get around to actually DOING it--probably because I only ever seem to think of it right around BBB time, when NO ONE would participate, haha.

Anyway, my offer stands should you need it!
