I started a comm for those interested in Cain/Shaw, ship or friendship, becometherazor.

New community/ficathon pimp


Sign-ups are now open for ninebillion, a multi-fandom fic exchange focusing on the role and importance of faith (or lack thereof) in our favourite characters' lives. All faiths/religions/beliefs are welcome, both real and fictive, and being brave and ambitious in your work is positively encouraged. For those who don't feel able to commit to the schedule of a fic exchange but would still like to participate, a list of claimable prompts has also been put together to help get those braincells working.

Sign-ups open: 6th January
Sign-ups close: 1st February
Fics due: 15th March

The core fandoms are Jossverse, Babylon 5, West Wing, Doctor Who, Heroes and BSG, and 'wildcard' fandoms are positively encouraged. The community will provide on-going support, including writing resources [ http://community.livejournal.com/ninebillion/1256.html#cutid1] and beta readers.

So, come on. Don't you want some fics on the Lords of Kobol, or Six's conviction?

For sign-ups see [http://community.livejournal.com/ninebillion/2115.html],
for any questions see [http://community.livejournal.com/ninebillion/674.html#cutid1], or contact the moderators, kangeiko and darlas_mom.

I'm not sure if this is something you'd be interested in including in the next post or not, but I've made polls for favorite BSG episodes. One for each season 1, 2, and 3 and then later I'm going to take the winners from each and make a poll for overall favorite.

Season 1: http://nytel.livejournal.com/153133.html
Season 2: http://nytel.livejournal.com/154840.html
Season 3: http://nytel.livejournal.com/157868.html

thegabbster is taking calls for people interested in participating in a BSG: 2003 Virtual Show.

Would it be possible to include bsg_slashathon as a new comm in the next update? Whenever that may be?

New Communities
30StraightDays; Basically, you write about thirty days in one characters life in order, no skipping around. You don't have prompts or anything to go by but each entry must be at least 250 words long.

Every Five Years; Basically, you write an entry of at least 500 words each time starting when your character you claim is 5 years old and then 5 years older (10), and 5 more (15) and so on till around 80 or so.

Multi-Fandom Fic-A-Thon; A 'fic-a-thon' is where you sign up for a fandom or a crossover of fandom and a prompt from a master set of prompts and create a fanfic of at least 300 words from that that prompt by the specific date that you sign up for as your deadline.
