Anyone playing MyOldFandom?  
Who all is signing up for [community profile] myoldfandom? We have through this Thursday, I believe.

Because there's been not a peep on the [community profile] rarelywritten front so far this year, and because of how the calendars at my workplace are leading me to plan the [community profile] fkficfest schedule, I've been toying with the idea of playing [community profile] myoldfandom. I would probably be able to produce only something under 5K words, nothing major, no matter how much I'd like to produce more, because of work, but... the odds are indeed tempting. All my dearest fandoms are so very, very qualified. ;-)

(I'm still sick, btw. This week's FK recap is looking pretty thin.)

I'm still thinking about it; I need to take a closer look at the tag set.

If you and Skieswideopen both go for it, I'm definitely in. If just one of you does, I'm probably in. :-)

The rumor is that Rarelywritten (nee RareWomen) won't be held this year, so...

(BTW, I was just admiring again that awesome Boomer story that you wrote for my request once in OldSchoolFic. Thank you!)

For some reason, I then promptly forgot about it, but I think sign-ups are open until tomorrow, so I will hie me thence to check out the tags.

(Also, I'm really glad that you [still] like it! I actually read it myself a week or so ago. (Do people do that? Read their own fics?))

Sign-ups are extended until noon on Monday, so that's nice. :-)

And yes, I [still] love that you gave Boomer a proper adventure of his own, and one with such canonical resonance. It could be canon, while still having a true beginning, middle and end of its own! I'd like to learn more about this Boomer's family, and his pre-pilot-training posting, and becoming friends with Apollo and Starbuck...

I do indeed reread my favorites of my own fanfic. I never do find myself just browsing my own stuff, but, yes, I do deliberately open and read my own dearest favorites. (I even cry over them. Shhhh.)

And of course sometimes I will read something if I'm considering re-addressing a similar theme or question, or -- so rarely! -- considering a sequel. But those are just "research" readings.

Sometimes I re-read my Susan Pevensie fic and cry. Don't tell anyone.
