where am I: the salmon range at 48 below. Or at least it feels like it.

Hi. I'm going to bed, really I am, but first I want to let everyone know that this year's axial_tilt is open for sign-ups! It's multifandom, but last year there were only a couple of fics from the dS and C6d fandoms (translation: mine and omphale23's, which is still here at the old LJ site [and also is really really good], which we wrote for each other).

Don't let the IJ location stop you from joining this ficathon--for those who haven't used it, it works just like LJ with coding and posting (you can even use the exact same lj codes for users, comms, cuts and such). You can either set up your own account or do the open ID thing.

axial_tilt was a lot of fun to do last year and I'm hoping for some more of the wonderful writers the dS and c6d fandoms to get on board this year. The minimum word count is just 500 words, and all the fics are PG 13 or less, so there's no compulsory long fics or difficult-to-write (for me, anyway) sex scenes. It's not an anonymous challenge, so you can start giving (and getting) personal feedback right away! Also, the deadline isn't until March 15 (to be posted on March 20, hence the axial tilt theme), so you have plenty of time! Also? dorrie6 is very cool and you will all love her. :D

So, um, yeah. Go have a look? :D :D

Hey - I sent the info to a West Wing news comm, too - it's out weekly, so we'll see tomorrow if she includes it - but many of the people that write west wing fic are multifandomers, so I figured it would be a good place. :)

I think there are probably some people on my flist eyeing up your Life on Mars request, too.

I recently mainlined the entire series and it's amazing. And! Are you one of those people who haven't seen Slings & Arrows yet? 'Cause if you like the theatre, you'll love it. Even if you don't like the theatre you'll love it.

I am hoping not to have to set up any two people to write for each other this year, though. I'm also hoping not to have to give anyone the same recipient they had last year.

I loved what omphale23 wrote for me, though, so it's not like I'd mind. :)

S&A pimpage = just doing my Sacred Duty. *g*

I have seen one episode of Slings and Arrows, and I *did* like it, though I think Paul wasn't really into it, which makes it harder to get around to watching it.

Oh, my dear, you must have been watching the wrong ep at the wrong time, or something. I've never seen Paul in a role he was MORE into (except maybe H20). S&A is what made me sit up and take notice of Paul beyond, "ooh, pretty!" Because I forgot about that part and got sucked into the story pretty fast.

What I love is that it's an ensemble cast and even the minor characters have depth. Third season breaks my heart into little tiny pieces.

This is from first season, and one of my favourite scenes in the whole thing:

Also from S1, now with Don McKellar!

There's really no S&A fandom, which oddly is something I like about it. It's lumped in with C6d, but it really stands on its own.

Re: S&A pimpage = just doing my Sacred Duty. *g*

Oh! Well, that makes more sense. Because I was trying to think where there is bad Geoffrey Tennant and I couldn't think of any. And I know from experience that you are generally sane. *g*

You have to watch it from the beginning to really get the whole thing.
