I'm a day early on this bulletin, but I promise to come back later and add any posts that people make during the rest of this last November day! So:
For the month of November, in Forever Knight, in my corners of social journaling, here's what I spotted:
Ficathons, Fests and Communities
- fandom_stocking is on! This is a multi-fandom, free-for-all, obligation-free, gifting community. Share good wishes, fond recommendations, new fanworks... whatever makes you and the recipient happy. Post content directly in comments, or post links to content elsewhere. This has been a lovely event every year that I've played.
- Sign Ups: 11/24/14 - 12/13/14
- Fills: 12/01/14 - 01/05/15
- Reveals: 01/06/15
- theladyscribe is hosting a DW friending meme, currently at 896 comments. It looks like a good opportunity to connect!
- galentinesday sign-ups remain open through 12/19/14 (stories due 02/07/15).
- As always, fanart_recs seeks volunteer recommenders! (Has anyone ever Deviantart-dived for FK content? I keep meaning to.)
- het_reccers has new mods who have significantly renovated. Not only does it have new templates and formatting requirements, it now mirrors on Tumblr.
No FK works on the AO3 currently show November 2014 as their publication date. In fact, we've seen nothing since August. :-(
Meta (Discussion, Essays, Etc.)
- 11/23: pj1228 previewed Nigel Bennett's recent return as Chief Constable Giles in Murdoch Mysteries. She originally linked to a sneak peak and later added a link to a behind-the-scenes video (with some 1902 Toronto content, for general historical interest).
- 11/26: pj1228 announced that Geraint Wyn Davies plays Prospero in The Tempest in Washington, D.C., 12/02/14 - 01/11/15. She linked to a newspaper article with a photo.
