. If you are into Supernatural
RPF and want to play, we bid you welcome! Fic, art, vids, and fanmixes, and gen, femslash, slash, and het are all encouraged. A note: university AU does not have to mean always human AU, for those of you who want your angels to be angels and your hunters to be college students (or whatever other awesome ideas you might have). We even have a spiffy banner made by the unparalleled shirozora

this week is hosting a Women of Supernatural
round. There is one prompt I am already eyeing with intent. And by one, I mean many.bessemerprocess
made an amazing mini mix
to accompany that fantastic Garcia/Morgan/Reid fic Stepping Stones
she wrote me for last Three Ships.Sweet Charity
is over, and this round I failed to win anything. I had my heart set on vanitashaze
and Ruby fic, but yahoo decided I did not need to get my "you've been overbid" notifications in a timely fashion and put them in my spam box instead. This is my sad face. On the other hand, people pledged US $4,662.50
, which means time to commence with the Paul Gross arms of glee. \o/How to scare your dragon
: When I watched How to Train Your Dragon
, I commented that Toothless was like if Stitch and a cat had adorable babies. Apparently I wasn't the only one with Stitch on the brain, because this amazing art has Stitch and Toothless upon first meeting. Eeee.The cost of art
For the record, I believe that ethics and artistry not only do go hand and hand but when divorced create nothing but monstrosity.
: so you wanna move to dreamwidth?
complete with codes for people who are interested. I agree with all of these reasons. :D

: These are a few of my Favorite Things
, which yes, a lot of these are my favorite, too!spn_dreamwidth
is the Supernatural
newsletter that covers all the SPN content on Dreamwidth. I am so glad it exists, because I was halfway tempted to make one of my own, and y'all know I already am too involved in fandom organizational stuff at the moment. If you produce SPN content on DW and aren't already watched by their aggregate journal, you should drop them a comment
Because I commented positively on fangasmic
's name change, I do want to point out also that I am not wholly impressed with their point/counterpoint post
in which given equal weight and airtime is the following:
To say I hated this decision would be putting it lightly. I resisted this move because it feels like we are betraying one of the fundamental reasons we wanted to launch this project to begin with; fandom is so preoccupied with never offending anybody that attempts to have a discussion oftentimes are smothered from lack of oxygen or blow up; I wanted us to be different. If we were going to give in on something as basic as our site name, what was next?
One of the fundamental reasons was so that people could have a place for unexamined privilege? Because we don't already have enough of that? Really?
Y'all that are joining, have fun, but I think I'm sticking with my own tiny nooks of fandom.
I've not really been replying to very much lately, because the past few days I've been ridiculously grouchy except for when I saw lizfu
and had a wonderful picnic in the park eating tomato soup and a delicious sandwich and sipping an amazing mango smoothie. Reading Changes
didn't really help my mood. (Review to come later.)
I'm not going on hiatus, but I am going to continue paring back my interactions outside my comms, journals, and fandom responsibilities for the moment. I'm sure I'll be back to chipper sunshine in a few days.
This is a long shot, but: is anyone else out there allergic to a ridiculous amount of soaps/body washes? If so, what hypoallergenic (or even non-hypoallergenic) soaps/body washes are you doing well with? What face scrubs? I'm good on shampoos, but I think my run with Pure & Natural's hypoallergenic mango butter and vanilla seed is coming to an end, and St. Ives's new Elements olive scrub seems to have been doomed from the start. It could also be my allergy to my cat ratcheting up again, but I am very much hoping that is not the case.
