Is Anybody Listening?

I know I rarely post in my journal, and I hope to remedy that one day... As a matter of fact I have a request for anyone on my flist who might read this.

I've signed up to write for oldschoolfic ficathons for fandoms that are no longer current. I signed up to write in the following fandoms:


  • Babylon 5

  • Star Trek Voyager

  • Stargate SG1

  • Mutant X

  • X-files

  • Xena


Apparently no one wants a story from any of these fandoms, so I need your help. Please go to oldschoolfic and request something in the above fandoms. I know you guys will help me out, right? Oh, and pass the word, sign up yourself even...

Thanks!!!

Okay, I've been considering doing this one. If you're playing in those fandoms, there are a couple I can definitely play in. Let me go sign up then...

And it's all your fault that I'm doing another one. Even tho' it means we'll both get fic we want out of it... *veg*

And it was your Darya Claudia icon that drew me in, damn you...

Bless you AJ! I knew I could count on you for this...

When I heard about it I was all *Yeah, now we can get some new fics on my favorite old fandoms* Problem is, no one that writes my fave fandoms has signed up - hence the plea. Maybe you could ask around as well... I think more people actually read your flist! ;-P

Hmmm... I haven't pimped this one yet, despite having seen it in havocthecat's lj, too. I'll go sign up after we get back from errands, then I'll start pimping it.

Speaking of B5, did I mention that I'm trying to figure out a way to buy B5 the complete series? CC's portrayal of Susan is where a lot of the current Darya's traits came from...sort of. And for all I know, Talia is where I got the idea that Em was a blonde...

I hear ya! I loved that show and Ivanova was such an amazing character (Claudia Christian seems to be a real character herself).

Amazon has the whole series used for $147.00 I picked up the eps with her and Talia a while back but never got the whole banana...

I have a prezzie for you and Jenn!

I've created a mood theme (just the basics for right now) called Light, Water, Muses... Can you access it? I'm not sure if it's public or not.

Ooooooooers.... Thank you! I will even change out my Calleigh mood theme for an LWM mood theme...

I don't see it, but if you send me the zip file of the images, I can install it for us both.

shatterpath actually said "You mean now I'll have to pick moods for my entries? Not that I post much anymore."

I have them loaded up already. I guess I need to figure out how to make it Public... Let me see if I can get some help from the LJ team. By the way, did you get my e-mail about the LWM piece I want to write? I had some questions/concerns...

I did see the email...and passed it on to shatterpath as she has the bulk of the Alex the Mad info. Will poke her again to send you the info, but she's been distracted by her mom coming to visit this weekend...

Ooh, a mom visit... I'm going to go ahead with my thoughts for the piece and hopefully Jenn will have a chance to send me some info by Tuesday. I may need an extension on the June 1 submittal date though... ;-P

No problem. As long as I get it like 2 days before it's supposed to go up, we're all good...

It appears we can no longer create public mood themes. ;-( Can you see the mood theme at this link? http://www.livejournal.com/moodlist.bml?moodtheme=456861&ownerid=7519343 I only created the basic moods so some don't seem right. I hope to update them at some point.

I see it and am giggling over it, too! Thank you! Will be changing my mood theme this afternoon & probably shatterpath's too...

Hmmm... It's not letting me change to that one. Can you send me a link to a zip file [or email the zip file] of the images you uploaded for this so we can use it?

All the images are uploaded to my Mood Themes gallery. There are a few for a Karen Sisco one I am working on as well. Hopefully you can just pull the urls from here like I did.

I'll try that...

I did pull the URLs and have it set up as one of my custom themes now. Haven't switched into it yet, but am also considering a change to my layout, so will make that decision soon enough...

Let me know if you update anything and I'll snag the changes. And if I come up with anything that looks good for it, I'll get them sized and let you know!

I'm so glad it worked out! I really do want to make more for this so I will be sure to let you know when I do. Thanks for being such a sweetheart!

Why don't you try putting out the plea on a couple of communities? It might help drum up some business.

That's a splendid idea! I've never been good at the pimping thing and I tend to worry that mods would not appreciate it... I'll start with your lovely comm if you don't mind.

So this isnt for the ficathon but I am dying for some Ivonova/Winters fic. Ive even resorted to the way back machine to find some of the stories that have disappeared off the web. There were some great stories being written but many of the authors just stopped in the middle of their stories and never finished. Point is I would love some B5 fic, some GOOD B5 fic so if you can write it I will read it! Its such a shame Andrea Thompson had to leave the show, we wouldn't have needed fic we could have watched it! BTW Hulu has up seasons 1 and 2 for free viewing.

Hey there! Glad you're a B5 fan! Have you checked out Passion & Perfection? http://www.ralst.com/storiesB5.html There are a bunch of good fics there, including my own (under Annette). As a matter of fact, that's my banner on top of the page. I'm sure I'll be writing more and posting them here and on P&P, so stay tuned!

Ive definitly read your stuff and look forward to more in the future! I just wish some of the 'epics' that people started had been finished like Metis's work on the Ivonova is Captain page! There are so many incomplete but wonderful stories. Im just glad Sel finished her reunion story, its very very well writen.
