The Linkersonian

I has caved and signed up for [livejournal.com profile] gateverse_remix again.

*prays to the gods of ficathons for good juju*
*sacrifices assbaby*
*downpour of awesome fic begins*


Meanwhile, have some linkage:

I love the Smart Bitches. :D And there's nothing quite like the purple urpliest of prose contests to get me giggling.

Earlier in the week, there was linkage to (and much boggling at) literal chocolate starfishes OMGWTFBBQ (Link is worksafe (barely) - but actual links to the website aren't) I'm particularly fond of the pewter paperweight versions... *eyebleaches*

Here are the entries to the comp - I swear to god, I have seen this in fanfic!
Silver Anus Purple Prose Competition (NSFW!)

I'm somewhat tempted to create myself a sock ficcing persona so I can indulge in heinous prose crimes against sex scenes. *cough* Maybe I should run some kind of prompt-a-thon and solicit the crackiest!dirty!bad!wrong comment fics for the lols.

LJ is having Advisory Board Elections, with various users running to be representatives. Go here for links to candidates platform statements and here to vote. [livejournal.com profile] metafandom has a roundup of posts endorsing candidates - but I say make up your own mind.

I'm a fan of procrastination (oh yeah!) And these little flash games hit the spot nicely.

Fancy Pants Adventures - World One
Fancy Pants Adventures - World 2

Wheeeeee! Best of all, you don't need to be uber skilled to play. :D

Also, I seem to have accidentally managed to write a fic for the [livejournal.com profile] sg1friendathon ficathon without actually officially signing up for it. *shifty eyes*


I say make up your own mind.

*wanders by*

I'd add that it's worth looking at the current results before you vote -- at the moment, [livejournal.com profile] legomymalfoy looks like the only person with a hope of beating [livejournal.com profile] jameth, so I'd suggest that fannish people at least consider making her their second choice, even if she's not their first (I've heard nothing but good things about her from people who've worked with her, in any case).

Not that I'm bitter about being set on by [livejournal.com profile] jameth's cronies who think it's awesome lulz to cover a post about epilepsy with flashing icons. Really.
I put her as my second choice, because although I liked her platform, I liked [livejournal.com profile] rm's better.

Looking at how they're going to do the runoff voting, I think [livejournal.com profile] legomymalfoy is in with a good chance - I'm just hoping that someone (preferably non-trollish) beats that [livejournal.com profile] jameth who gives me the heebies lyk whoa.

Seriously, what an arsehole - and the stoopid cronies flooding your post with asshattery and lame attempts at justification = made of so much FAIL.
Yes. Good strategy. I saw four or five candidates that I really liked as much as [livejournal.com profile] legomymalfoy, but decided to vote for [livejournal.com profile] legomymalfoy in the first choice simply because I wanted Jameth to die. Plus, his posters are annoying the living fuck out of me. Oh sure, he'll take his position seriously. Riiiight.

*shifty eyes with you*
*koff koff*

Stealth fic is stealthy...

Wheeeee! :)

*goes to do so*
Ok, stealth writing for a ficathon is obviously a tactic I need to try!!!! I have most of a story done, 2 people who have said they will beta (but I want to finish quickly so they are not doing a lightening beta) and a husband who won't go running or to that Mecca of Men, Home Depot, for a few hours so that I may write!!!!!

*is envious of your complete-ness*
I like this whole 'pick a prompt from the pool' way of doing things - although so far it has managed to make me write monster head eating fics that won't finish and will most likely be posted 5 months after the due date...

Good thing this one is pretty much done :D

Maybe you can bribe the hubby with some kind of baked goods! :P
I really, really hope the remix doesn't end in my horrible demise.

Ditto for my official frienathon-signed-up ass.

Re: the starfish: Ack! My EYES!

Re: the prose: OMG.

Cute little game! Am playing now.

Also, I know I've said this before, but you really do give the best recs. *luffs you*
*luffs you back*

I hadn't intended to write this fic, but the prompt stuck with me for some reason.

Now to beat this fic into some kind of shape so it can go to beta!
