Speaking of ficathons, oldschoolfic is running a poll about holding a "December Carnival" all-holiday exchange event. This is the ficathon for celebrating out-of-production fandoms. They're guaging interest, dates, and preferred minimum length, to start. If you're interested, please drop by. (If FK is eligible this time, and if I think I have good odds of getting an FK or HL asignment, and if Real Life keeps itself to itself, I plan to play. A lot of "if"s, I know -- but three Buffyverse assignments in a row this year! I'm fond of the Buffyverse, but I've got to come home to my own fandoms to recharge my hobby.)
Still speaking of ficathons, fkficfest is up. It's not quite ready for members, insofar as we have some testing yet to do with posting from different accounts, and holding and releasing a queue -- I've never modded a community before -- and you don't need to live through that on your Friends List/Reading Page. But if you're interested in taking a look, please let me (or co-mod amilyn) know what you think. We plan for sign-ups to begin in February, and stories to release in May.
I've been out of touch. I'll catch up this weekend!
