I don't have the time to get into the complexity of fandom and of Night Vale this can bring up, but this one was too tempting to not even comment on. Also, procrastination is a great drive.

Title: Subject

Words: 150

Summary: Night Vale is a good place for fandom

Gonna need to give that dude's show another try. I want us to be friends.

“I like the slash, and I think I like it because I feel there are so many people who are under-represented—or not represented at all—in mainstream Hollywood entertainment. I really enjoy the fan fiction that embraces character and themes that showcase those people—their love, their desires, their passions.

“I think that’s really cool—and I hope the show as it continues embraces that more, because that’s an opportunity to tell stories that other people might not be familiar with. I mean, there’s slash of me and Ichabod… that’s like, ‘What?!’ and then I read it and it was really well-written.

“I get it—it’s another way to go but it’s no less valid than what we’re doing and it’s certainly interesting, so I really get a kick out of that. To read fan fiction and to see fan art and to watch other people’s artistry paint different colors on top of what we’re doing… how can you be mad at that? That’s just completely awesome!”

It's a " commercial" for OTP matchmaking service.
On one hand, I don't like it when people outside of fandom write/create about fandom, specially as funny.
On the other hand -this *is* cute, and has some great Sherlock/John cosplay.!bEIM88

... 'good penis'.

Found this amusing, and following it honestly actually brought me so close to my fandom (or rather, it would have brought me to SPN season 3).
As for the ending - sorry if it was unpleasant to any Hannibal fans who might be here. Let's say the same thing about my fandom and incest, instead?

Another Fangirls vid from Leigh. Welcome to Night Vale adorableness.

ETA: This is so cool!

A bunch of artists (including Leigh) made this together - you get to flip through channels - oh, just go look...

Your fandom stories are needed!
Two US agencies are holding hearings on copyright reform; enough powerful people (ok, companies) think that copyright law needs changing that this might actually happen. Don't let it happen without fannish voices: the OTW is soliciting stories of how creating transformative works has helped people in day-to-day life, whether that's through building language skills, video editing, writing, coding, or anything else. You don't need to provide personal information, but the more specific the better. You can submit your story through this form. We need to speak up, or we'll be left out.


Go tell your stories!
And if you feel like it, tell me too/tell them on lj too, I want them as well :)

It's gotta still be the 13th somewhere... ;)

Season 1 includes some of the most epically SPN images and lines. The soul of the show was there already, primal and strong.

So, For the Supernatural birthday thing (I'm enjoying this so much! Reading people's love for the show, and their "origin stories"...), and my one year anniversary watching SPN, recs for some season 1 fic or retellings with a twist of the beginning of the show, that's now become sort of epic.

I had trouble convincing myself not to include some amazing pre-series fic I love, like [ profile] fleshflutter's The Time Dean was Sam's Girlfriend and Jess Entered the Winchester Family Business and its great podfic by [ profile] sadtreepodfic, [ profile] queenklu's Holly, Ivy, Mistletoe and its podfic by the wonderful [ profile] applegeuse and perhaps my very favorite fic, And I Have Asked to be Where No Storms Come by [ profile] candle_beck and its podfic by the author... So, good thing I was strong about that.

Sadly, a lot of the authors aren't around in fandom anymore. I wish I could tell some of these people how meaningful their work has been and still is to me. But at least I can still point to it! :/
And I know a lot of these everybody knows and loves, but hey, it took me a long while to find them myself, perhaps I'm not the only one not to know about them.

Title: Credit in the Straight World
Author: [ profile] vaingirlfic
Podfic: Link
Reader: [ profile] ann_ciudad I'd have loved to hear more SPN podfic by her
Gorgeous art by: [ profile] dreamlittleyo
Author's Warnings/Spoilers: pre-series, so no spoilers. Story contains: explicit sexual content, some of which involves the underage. Kink. Sex and violence that may trigger some people. If you know you have issues with triggers, or you just like warnings, detailed warnings are here.
Author's Summary: Sam has always had his brother, when he wanted him and when he didn't. But that was before he was the lucky recipient of a gift from faerie that Dean can't remember and John can't forget. It leaves Sam to find his own way to navigate between the 'real' world and the Winchester world and deal with guilt he can't shake, no matter how hard he tries. And trying? Is going to involve plenty of sex, rebellion (and maybe some of Dean's rock and roll. But not much).

Rec: This is one I always get back to. I love the way it explores Sam's negotiation with being normal. I adore the Sam in this fic. It's definitely Sam, our Sammy, but the fic brings out a side of his I know is there but isn't often written, in human contexts. The way that for all Sam wants to be accepted, wants to be part of society more than Dean does, when it comes to things he's committed to, he's willing to go very far in telling society to go fuck itself, to stand strong in the face of whatever consequences that brings. Another thing I love about this fic is that subs are often written as subby outside of scenes too. Here Sam fights bravely against the notion that he shouldn't sub. I love a sub (or switch, in this case) who claims their subjectivity, their right over their body, to do with as they please. Anyway, fantastic fic, and one that stayed with me.

Title: Memories of Me
Author: Gillian Middleton
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: The memory loss sort of dubcon
Author's Summary: While investigating a routine curse in a small California town Dean loses his memory. With only his brother to lean on feelings begin to develop that aren't exactly brotherly. How's Sam going to cope with that?

Rec: Perhaps because I'm newer to the fandom, and it all seems far away and magical from where I stand, I find a certain thrill in this being season 1 fic that was actually written during season 1. The characterization of Dean, Sam and the world they live in is very season 1, this pure, primal heart of the show, to me. I love fic that deals with the whole incest thing, and this one devotes a lot of time to that. And I often like fic in which a character is altered for a period of time, though they're still themselves (or pretty much), and the way they and the other character deal with it, then the way they both deal with it when it's over. This fic provides all of that, it a way I enjoyed reading a whole lot.

Title: The Fetters of Fenrir
Author: leonidaslion
Podfic: Link
Reader: kitanachan
Rating: NC-17
Author's Warnings: Forced Prostitution, Torture
Author's Summary: How far would you go to reclaim the other half of your soul?

Rec: This is an AU that breaks away from the series at the end of season 1. It's... wow. Its a lot of things I don't normally read, and it still grabbed me in a big way. It's huge, and still I kept wanting more. Just a great story, casefic of sorts... it includes two more elements I have a thing for - someone finding out about the incest and the boys keeping their ground (I want *all* the someone finds out stories!), and a solution that's not about fixing the sick person, but about realizing it's not a bad thing, just not normative.

This. There should be more fic about this.

One year ago today, I got into Supernatural. And I was planning on doing a thing, but it turns out the whole fandom has a Supernatural birthday today too! :D
It's kinda awesome that SPN shares my SPN anniversary (ok, the other way around). The only likely conclusion is that some fans cast a spell last year, to bring new fans into the fandom, and I'm one of them. Thank you for not making me fall in love with a donkey, you guys!

So maybe I'll do a thing in the near future, today wanna tell my "getting into SPN" story :)

I was really into Sherlock, and going crazy over the lack of new episodes. And there was this show I was told was not a shallow misogynistic icky one, though it seemed to be. I'd tried watching a few episodes*, but it just didn't really catch me. But I had nothing to watch, so I gave it yet another shot, deciding to disregard the spoiler problem and start from season 4. After School Special. And then I stayed for anther ep, and another, watched five or so that night.

And I thought - this is great! It'll be like methadone, get me over the Sherlock cravings, and it's safe, it's not anything I'm gonna fall in love with!

Happy birthday, Supernatural, show and fandom, I love you )

I say it's time for a kink-based friending meme. People often travel across fandom and ship lines for a favorite kink. Talking about kinks is such a fun thing to do. Kinks can be so meaningful, deep, can be fun and simple, can bring so much joy. Why not friend based on that?

I hardly know anybody on LJ (though some of the people I know, I care a lot about).
So unless you spread the word, it's just gonna be me and my kinks. Which isn't that bad, actually. Tell everyone! Copy and paste the code in the box under one of the banners to your journal to spread the word. Below are some banners I made. If anybody feels like making better, more inclusive ones (more fandoms, more kinks, more sorts of people), that'd be cool, let me know and I'll add them to this post.

No kink-shaming, please.
And you don't have to feel obligated to answer all the questions.


ETA: Hey, I'm having a thought. I'm really enjoying the conversations here. I feel like opening a kink discussion group. For fun discussion of stuff we like, are curious about, getting inspired by other people's kinks, just all sorts of that.
Perhaps open posting as well as having a specific topic or question to play with every week. Is anyone interested?

Kinky friendly banners! )

I'm thinking about making a kink-based friending meme. Does that sort of this exist? I just like the idea. Even if I don't manage to get people interested and it's just me sitting there... might be worth the try :)

Seriously, loving the Supernatural fandom is like dating someone experienced enough to have stories from their wild past - all the things you've missed, but all the awesome stories about things that made them who they are.
