My second thought upon hearing about Disney's acquisition of Star Wars and discovering that they would be making another trilogy of movies was to realize I was going to have to go to the Jedi Council Forums if I wanted to discuss that with my fellow nerds. And I loathe the JC.

I want my DLC back. #TheDLCIsDead #LongLiveTheDLC

My first thought, in case anyone was wondering, was a long string of profanity and cursing. Whether they keep the EU canon as canon or do a reboot, or whatever I'm still filled with horror at how badly they're gonna fuck this up.

Please make it about some characters we've never heard of before and a totally different type of Star Wars movie than we've ever seen. And then maybe you won't make the fan people cry.  

Heh - I think they broke the JC already.

Egads, I haven't updated this since February here.  My bad! 

I was keeping track at the DLC, but I'm hoping now that I've switched it here it will be easier for me to keep track since I'm not hanging out there so much.

The other reason that I wanted to quit the DLC was because I've kind of been neglecting the fic writing and [community profile] ncis_femslash.  So tonight I made a few changes that have been simmering in the back of my mind for a while now and proposed a few ideas that I'd like to get a little bit of community feedback on.  I hope people take the time to have a look and leave their thoughts on it.   I'd really like some feedback (heh, like that's new).  There is nothing that I hate more than the feeling of talking to myself.

All I have to say is - You really do not see this every day: Jaina and Robal's fun times.

*ahem* Not like that! Get your mind out of the gutter!
The First Annual Dark Lords Council House Cup

Okay.  Here it is.  The thing that's been driving me around in batty circles of insanity for at the very least the last week.  As some of ya'll may know the Dark Lords Council is my favorite message board ever.  My home away from home on the Internet.

My fellow Admin, MasterKay, and I have come up with this awesome contest pitting both of the DLC's Houses against one another in a month long competition in a variety of tasks.

So what I'm saying is, come. Check us out, watch the competition and trash talking and, if you feel the urge, join in.  We're always happy to see new faces, and hey, it's a cool place.  We have everything.  Fan fic, discussion, every fandom you can think of. At least give us a look.

There are days, sometimes not many in a row, but they do happen, where I absolutely love being an admin
I'm doing this on the DLC, so I figured I might as well do it here too.

...but, I thought I'd just mention it today. 

Over on the Dark Lords Council I'm hosting Six Senses Fic challenge lasting from now until March 5th.  You can go here for details if you're interested.  It's a writing challenge open to any fandom or original fiction, and sometimes the results are pretty cool. 

It's also a very nice, friendly place with lots of cool people to post with. So from me, to you, I invite you to come check it out and maybe give it a shot.

Work! )

The good news is that I'll now stop spamming my flist with random crap and that the next post will be fic. *ahem*
The very, very good news is that I've finally gotten a few bunnies for my  [community profile] 30kisses claim.  This is very good news since I have to have my first fic written and post by October 11th and it's already the 3rd.  Nothing like cutting it close! 

In rather shocking news, I've actually been fairly good as far as my other stuff goes.  I finished the NCIS fic that's been driving me crazy.  It's beta'd and now I just need to figure out if I want to post it in one piece or decide how many parts I want to break it into.  At 5,000 odd words it's a little long, imo, for a one post.  I'd enjoy reading things of that length or longer.  The longer the better, as far as I'm concerned, but I don't want people to be put off because of the length.  I'm still kinda deciding about that.  If anyone has any words of advice on fic length...

The really shocking part is that I've gotten my Sappho challenge fic written well ahead of time, at least for me.  I never do things before the last minute.  Now I've just got to polish it up and finish it off.  I'm actually pretty nervous about this fic.  It's been a while since I've written in the fandom in which my claim was in.  I've never written that particular pairing and I'm nervous as hell.  Nervous that the story sucks, that it will totally dissapoint the person who made the claim and will not be what they were wanting and just plain nervous that the fic is total crap. Oy. 

In better news...tis October...already!  (I can't believe it. It was just May yesterday, I swear!)  Um, but the point of that...It's time for another DLC Fan Fiction Challenge.  And of course, it's appropriately Halloween themed! 

1. Halloween - Samhain - All Hallows' Eve - All Saints Day - It's a day of many names. Give this month's fic a Halloween inspired feel...spooky ghosts, haunted Star Destroyers, or find inspiration in the holiday's original celebration of summer's end. The choice is yours. The only requirement: include at least two words from the spooky word list!

2. This challenge is open to any fandom, crossovers, or original fiction. Just put a note at the beginning of the fic stating which one it is.

3. Please keep all fics under 2,500 words, and limit one fic per author.

4. All fics must be linked back to this thread to participate in the competition!

5. This challenge will run from today, October 3rd until October 31st!

Please come and join in! It'll be fun!  You can find it here.

which means that I'm doing another multi-fandom fan fiction challenge on the DLC. 

Come one, come all - I'd love it if ya'll come join the fun. *grin*

August DLC Fan Fiction Challenge

Challenge: Incorporate any song title or lyric from a song into your fic! Send me a private message with the lyric, song title, and artist of the lyric or song title that you used in your fic.

Writers - Bribe your muses, grab your writing implement of choice, and let the creativity flow!

Readers -- We need your participation! Find the lyrical line or song title that the authors have put into their fics. The reader who identifies the most lyrical lines/song titles will win a special prize!

The challenge runs from August 1st - 31st! I'll see ya'll there!
I maintain and sorta oversee a fan fiction index for a message board - the Dark Lords Council - that allows any kind of fan fiction or original fiction.  Most of the fan fiction comes from fandoms such as Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Alias, Pirates of the Carribean, Fascape, Stargate SG-1, etc. 

In my experience each fandom, especially as far as fan fiction is concerened has it's own specific jargon, certain slang words that denote specific 'ships, or represent a certain type of fic that is fandom specific, etc.  I'm not very immeresed into the fandom communities for all of these different communities, so any help that folks could give me with this would be greatly appreciated!
...to join the insanity and fun. *g*

Tomorrow the DLC is holding a rare Postfest.  It will run from Tuesday, June 6th at 10 PM EST through Friday, June 9th at 10 PM. 

It will be lots of fun and lots of insanity.  Everyone is welcome, so come, pull up a chair and post like crazy.  It will be a blast!
