Three fandom things make a post!
1. Remix Revival Madness Round has opened for sign-ups!
I have signed up; everything is fair game except the previous Eagle of the Ninth remix for isis
) and my experimental Man from UNCLE pile (a bunch of shorts
), but if you absolutely want any of those, tell me and I can figure it out? (Meaning ask isis
, I doubt tropetastic shenanigans are of interest for remixing.)
tl;dr There's Generation Kill, and Harry Potter, and Danish cop show Rejseholdet, and gloomy LeCarre-style twists on Man from UNCLE, and X-Men (Alternate timeline), and obviously Sutcliff's The Eagle and Frontier Wolf with centaurs and were-bees. If you want to remix anything at all, you're welcome.
2. I have successfully fulfilled my assignment for rarepairfest
and now I cannot wait until the gifts are revealed because I went through the fandom listing for posted works and I cross-referenced and I'm pretty sure I know what is the gift I'm getting which is GREAT. Any of the requests
would've been great, I'm keen on it all, but it's GREAT to wait for the gift and have a hint, OK? (Actually, it looks like it might be one of two DC related options and I am BRIMMING WITH EXCITEMENT, either of those would be fantastic). I was worried all the way through this exchange because I thought my requests were weird and I wouldn't get matched on DC because there were many other DC signups and my other requests were sort of niche (Marvel Tony Stark/Victor von Doom with Damage Control? Endeavour Morse and John Bixby, half a ship from a single episode? Alice Morgan on an adventure where John tags along - IDEK, I didn't check if Luther fandom was even active these days), and because of that I worried that something might happen, what if my mystery creator had to default, and then I'd be that sad floating lingering pinch-hit nobody picked up because nobody shipped Hilarion/Lucius or something. (OK, I know riventhorn
ships Hilarion/Lucius, but she's busy.) I was really sad and anxious in advance for some reason! But it looks like everything has turned out AWESOME and I shiver with anticipation and mentally thank my unknown creator. Yay.
There's still some time until August 26 but I'm not sure I can manage treats because I poured a lot of energy into my assignment (my fault, I kind of misread the request in the beginning and had to start again). But there are many interesting requests if you like to treat, go to the exchange page!
3. I have signed up for fandomgrowthexchange
purely in a quixotic attempt to generate more Sutcliff in the universe. As you can see from my letter
, it's basically "please write me whatever" for obscure and little Sutcliff canons and also Assassins (1995) because I had a slot left. Judging by last year
, there might be treats allowed? Literally anything I requested would make me happy. I hope to write and treat.
Ironically, I see that I have been one of the initial pinch-hits here, but it has been claimed already. Thanks to the kind person who has come to claim it, I shall be happy with anything, you're a star, do whatever you like. :)
