Blanket permission to use my fanworks for anything fannish as long as you link back to my fanwork and share your own link with me..."fanwork inspired by" is all LOVE. But please contact me first...I will always say yes, but might ask for you to delay if it involves a work of mine that's still in WIP stage.

My dS and C6D fanworks appear in many LJ and DW comms, and are all archived at AO3 site.

Fanworks is a new con that will begin in 2019. It will be dedicated to various forms of fannish craft, including but not limited to fanfic, fanvids, fanart, and podfic, and is under development by [personal profile] trelkez, [personal profile] sweetestdrain, and [personal profile] absolutedestiny.

There will be individual programming tracks for fanfic, podfic, fanvids, and fanart. Panel programming will focus on craft, and will be a mix of technical panels and presentations (how to achieve a video effect, how to write a certain kind of scene, how to make certain kinds of cosplay outfits, et cetera) and topical discussion panels related to different fan crafts. The fanvid programming track will have both panels and vidshows, including a show of premiering vids. All vidshows will be available to stream online (with viewer-optional subtitles) for attending and supporting members.

Planned features of the con include:

-- the FanWorks Night Market: an evening event with vendor tables, food, and drinks
-- a vid dance party
-- a con zine
-- an on-site art gallery
-- a quiet room with a zine library and podfic available for checkout

It's winter in New Zealand...and you know what that means! Oh...you don't? It means now is the time for NaNoDownUnder on Dreamwidth, being run by [personal profile] china_shop who has this to say about it:

"Just a reminder that NaNoDownUnder starts on June first (for winter New Zealand time). Want to kick-start your writing? Set your own goals -- this doesn't have to be a full 50K-word endeavour, just whatever you want to aim for. Pick a WIP to finish, or set a daily time or wordcount goal. Or just wing it, if you prefer. Daily check-in posts. Locked comm so we can chat/cheer/commiserate in semi-privacy (ie, you have to join to play, but membership isn't moderated)."

If you receive a message like this or one similarly worded, you should delete it. If you click the “Open in Docs” link you will be prompted to login to a real Google Account selection screen (this portion is not spoofed).

The meme that's the first lines from your last twenty fics (gakked from [personal profile] exbex).

If you were a shape you would be a perfect arrow. When he walked to Wilby Watch he went to find men who were there to find men. "Wrists together, Ray...thank you kindly," says Fraser, world's most polite dom. Let's kiss in Canada. Ray keeps his poetry on the inside and that's another one of those things he hides.
Kowalski really wishes he hadn’t mixed the two IPA’s at the conference: International Police Association and India Pale Ale -- like Fraser’s tongue and electricity -- were not a good mix. “There’s good Goats and bad Goats, but there’s no Goat like the Billy Goat Curse.” City fit and a lot to say about it,
not yet Arctic fit and saying even more. On Ray’s first birthday, the Vecchio family gathered around and sang “Tanti auguri a te, tanti auguri a te, tanti auguri Raimondo, tanti auguri a te”. Traversing the ice fields, Ray thinks of Fraser's smile. According to the Illinois Criminal Code 720 ILCS 5/3-5, 5/3-6, 5/3-7, there is no statute of limitations for first degree murder, attempt to commit first degree murder, second degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, reckless homicide, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident involving death or personal injuries, failing to give information and render aid under the Illinois Vehicle Code, concealment of homicidal death, treason, arson, forgery, child pornography, or certain specified sexual conduct crimes in which DNA evidence is entered into a DNA database. When a half-wolf lives in the city, he becomes more doggish and less wolfish, snacks on goldfish and stolen pastries -- scorns the hunt. "S” could be Stanley, “S” could be “Stalker”.
White like a blank slate, this cold heaven where the ice promises pristine preservation. Not dog nor wolf – something of both. Come all ye fellow wolves, and prick forward your ears as a ballad I howl that spans many wolf years. Your Las Vegas life is like dry ice, burns you cold -- cold like the Vegas desert at night -- deadly cold -- deadly cold like you are now. April here in Chicago, where everything around me is bursting with a life I don’t feel. Raven-haired robber has plans for the blonde lawyer – date but not court date. It's the second hour of an evening stake-out marked by relentless rain and high winds.

This was then.

First They Came -- by Martin Niemöller
First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the ill and disabled
And I did not speak out
Because I was not ill or disabled
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

This is now.

I sent fannish gift packages to due South fen around the world: Hungary, New Zealand, Trinidad, and of course Canada. I bought bakery treats to bring to work for my co-workers, and I told the salesperson at the bakery all about More Joy Day and told her to "keep the change -- that's for More Joy Day". Along with [personal profile] sl_walker I co-created and am co-admin of a new dSC6D and Twin Peaks forum Both Sides of the Border for which we chose More Joy Day as the opening day. I had IRL More Joy Day dinner with [personal profile] verushka70 and we did 10-minute due South snippet word-sprints in honor of More Joy Day. I offered to beta (and the offer was accepted) for a due South writer whose fic has been WIP's for several years and who is now wanting to post again. I connected a fangirl who needed help from an Irish-speaking fangirl for Irish dialogue in her fic with an apropos Irish fangirl. I gifted [personal profile] sdwolfpup with a year of DW Premium account.

I didn't manage to do the daily postings for this year's Fandom Snowflake Challenge which has been running annually from January 1 to January 15. I saved in a folder all the comments made by those who did post for the challenge and I will read them all, albeit a bit late. Today's challenge, Day 15, the last day of this year's Fandom Snowflake Challenge is "In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers".

Short and simple: LOVE to the mods past and present of Fandom Snowflake Challenge, and all y'all of my flist and my circle and my followers!!!
