Thoughts On CM 5.21 - Exit Wounds

Okay, it started off being so incredibly cute, and KV tweeted that she has a big part, so I'm blogging along.

Maybe I should get a cat )

In summary, I kind of love you too, Criminal Minds.

[au bigbang] Coming Up To The First Check-In

My fellow [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang peeps - how goes the writing with you? I have...um...ninety-one words! But I blame my [livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang fic of dooooom for that.

Anyways, the first check in is on Tuesday and I was just wondering where everyone was/where everyone was hoping to be by Tuesday. Personally? If I've written anything more, I'll be quite happy. But having a plot would be nice...

[au bigbang] Support group?

So, [livejournal.com profile] mcgarrygirl78 and I have been discussing the idea of having a smallish support group for people doing the [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang. Obviously, there's the official support comm and that's great, but I know for me personally there are times when I'm not comfortable posting to a large comm if I'm having problems writing or just looking for some general prodding.

I was thinking maybe something along the lines of a weekly check-in - I know I'm going to need to be kept on track since my brain has apparently determined that I need to write something with an actual plot - and a network of people to ask for advice on stuff? Maybe even a mini support comm?

Any takers? Anyone on the f-list or anyone on the f-list's f-list (etc etc) who's doing/thinking of doing the [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang and who thinks they might want to get involved in something like this, drop a line here. And pimp this post out and we'll see what kind of interest we can get.

Dear Yule Goat

Dear Yule Goat

Firstly, thank you for offering to write in whichever fandom it is we've been matched on. Please know that whatever you write, I will love because it's fic in one of these fandoms, about the characters I want to read about.

General things: I'm all about the girls (shocking that, I know, given the characters I've requested). Especially them with their own agency, doing their own stuff. Other things I love are AU fic (except vampire-based ones), dorky romance stuff, character-focussed fic, and banter. Major squicks are consent issues of any kind, graphic kink-fic, and character bashing. And in general, I'm not so much a fan of the boyslash. I don't mind background pairings but would prefer nothing central to the story.

So, for a little more about the specific fandoms, read on. Or don't - I'll be psyched to read whatever I get so if you have your own ideas, go with those.

Fandomy thoughts under the cut )

So thank you for signing up for whichever of these fandoms you've signed up for, and I can't wait to read what you come up with. Honestly, I'll be happy with whatever you write so if none of these ideas speak to you, don't worry and just go with whatever works for you. And thank you again!
