Hey guys!

Remember how I talked about creating a community where we can discuss writing fic? Well, here it is: [ profile] spn_writing.

You will find discussions on various topics related to writing fics (e.g. plotting a fic, world building, creating characters etc.) as well as technical issues relating to formatting and posting fics, giving and receiving feedback, and much more there! There will also be the occasional (topic related) writing challenge, as well as posts with resources for writers, including applicable links. We’ll also be hosting workshop posts, where writers can discuss the fics they are working on and bring up any problems they are having with their stories.

Supernatural Writing Circle

Please come join us and spread the word, so as many writers (and readers) join!
For now, you can find the guidelines here, suggest topics (or other ideas you have for the community) here, and introduce yourself (if you want to) here. The first discussion post will go up in a few days! We're looking forward to hearing from (hopefully many) of you!

[ profile] brightly_lit very kindly suggested I make this a weekly thing over at [ profile] amilliondays because, as she said, "Aw, man, I love this idea! Our own works do (or at least should!) make us happy, so why SHOULDN'T we post about them??" and she's completely right, isn't she? How many of us have found an old story we wrote that may well be full of errors but still makes us smile gleefully, or laugh out loud? How many of us have dug through our old art portfolios and found a picture we'd forgotten we created and just *had* to share it with the rest of the flist? Well I think it's about time we celebrated our own achievements. They don't have to be pieces that got a lot of traffic, or artwork that was in all honesty a Van-Gogh in the making, just something that made you smile, made you proud to have created it!

So, Saturday is the day for posting your happy making endeavours over at [ profile] amilliondays and I hope to see some pieces that y'all love and want shown off to the world (our little world anyway!)

Pimp this out ladies! :)

[ profile] brightly_lit has created a fabulous new comm to help us all remember that there's happy to be had every day. There's no real rhyme or reason to it, it's just for happy thoughts and feels, smiley images and things that make us cheery. Come along and join in the fun :D

Trying to get back to normal after the events of the weekend, but just wanted to drop this here.

It was Jay Northcote's birthday yesterday but she spent it quickly getting this together to raise money for The Human Rights Campaign in the USA and Stonewall in the UK.

It's a transformed Merlin fanfic of hers and is rather lovely. And if you're worried about the money getting to where it needs to go, don't be. She's one of the most transparent authors I've met.

For those of us who want to do something but don't know where to start, reading this lovely story is as good a place as any.

You can read all about it and get buy links here.

OK y'all, there are only six prompts left to be claimed. Let's finish strong!

Need to be tempted?

  • A/B/O hookers!

  • Mpreg (OMG, my faaaaavorite)

  • J2 split up after a night together. Years later, they meet again. Can they make it work this time?

  • God falls in love. (!)

  • In bed with Dean and Castiel...the whole fic takes place in one night.

    ....and more!

    Gentle reminder that ALL SIX MUST BE CLAIMED before we can move forward. Please, just go for it!

A Thing!!

So, next weekend I'm hoping to send out my first writer's newsletter! I figure that not everyone is going to be quite as excited about it as me, BUT that's because you don't know about the swag yet!

There's going to be swag.

Or at least, I'm going to make a little something for the first twenty people to sign up to the newsletter. Or the first twenty people that want a something, and are willing to give out their postal address so I can send the something to them. I have a few sign ups but it would be nice to have twenty by next weekend.

So, if you'd like an exclusive gift that original fic related, all you have to do is pop to the website and sign up to the newsletter at the bottom of the page. I don't want to overhype the swag, so let's just say that it's adequate. Also homemade by the author.

See! How exciting is that!! - go to my website, and the sign up is at the bottom of the page - - Clickety Click!! x

Writers, Procrastinators, Big Bangers!

Writing Faster FTW by L. A. Witt is free on Amazon for short time, so you might want to snap it up.

I've only read the intro so far, but it looks like a guide to finding your own path to productivity. Plus, Lori is really fun writer and being that she knocks out 80k a month in words, I reckon she probably knows a thing or two. Maybe leave a nice review in exchange. I thought I'd just mention it x

If you have stories posted on, they've almost certainly been stolen (along with your profiles) by fake websites which are mirroring and using YOUR work to make money with ads. This is called "spamdexing" and it is WRONG!

These are the websites:

Do NOT log into these fake sites as they will steal your eail and password info. Instead, you need to report them.


Go here:
Put in the name of the website (one report each)
Write in additional details: This is a spamdexing mirror site to and has stolen my profiles and intellectual property.
Click “I am not a robot” and then “Report webspam”
Report more by clicking the link on: Go back to the webspam report form.

These thieves must be stopped!!!!! The more of us who report them, the more likely we can make it happen. I've already reported every single site and I hope you do too.

I'd like to thank the amazing [ profile] lilbreck and the OP, wildrhov, on tumblr who alerted me to this travesty.

I know I have some Destiel fans on my flist. I'm hoping some of you are on Facebook too.

My friend Catherine Lievens has just powered through Supernatural for the first time and loved it.

She's asking on FB for some Destiel fanfic recs, and I'd really love to be able to violently shake some sense into her point her in the right direction, but it's not my area.

So if you have a minute and a Facebook account and a page of Destiel recs or a good comm, please think about dropping her a link or two. She's lovely.

Thank you! <3 xx

If one of your New Years Resolutions is to try some new art things,
why not come on over to [ profile] wedraweveryday.

We're going to be posting a tutorial every Friday that we can all have a crack at during the week, and share our efforts with the group. You can put in as much or as little time as you feel like, and be of any skill level. Some topics might not appeal to everyone but it's very helpful to get out of your creative comfort zone once in a while, so let's try all the things! - read a post about it here

Everyone's free to take a turn at posting a tutorial, whether it be a YouTube vid or whatever, and then if anyone has any complimentary tutorials or web pages, they can add them in the comments - you can sign up to make a tutorial post here

The first challenge is up already - practicing planes of the head. Might as well start the year as we mean to go on! - Challenge No. 1

And of course, [ profile] wedraweveryday is still a great place to post any kind of arting - fannish or not - that you'd like feedback on or just want to share. So you can do that too : ) xx

We are all a tad overexcited about our QUEER COMPANY 2 event, even though there's still something like 340 sleeps to go until Saturday 5 November!

The event is strictly limited in terms of size. We are planning for a happy yet relaxed sense of being among a small group of friends. We have chosen the venue accordingly - and even though we are booking out the entire place this time, our numbers are still limited to 50.

We have already received over 20 registrations, so if you can plan ahead for next November, it might be worth securing your place. Also, you might like to take advantage of our early bird rate for the delegate's fee of £40. This will go up to £50 from 1 February.

We are utterly delighted to welcome Sue Brown and UK GAY ROMANCE as our first sponsors. It's terrific to be partnered up with this blog which does so much to promote British authors, British characters and British settings in our global genre.

If you'd like to discover which other cool people are already registered, check out the WHO'S COMING? page on the event website!


Many of us are re-reading our Jane Austen novels - and some of us are even writing our stories already - for this anthology which will feature LGBTQIA fiction based in the Austenverse.

The new release date is 1 November, to tie in with QUEER COMPANY. The deadline has been shifted accordingly, to 1 May 2016. So, maybe that makes it possible for you to contribute as well ... ? You'd be very welcome.

Check the CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS page for details!

Wishing you all well, no matter how / whether you celebrate this festive season.

It happened with previous #AKF campaigns, it happened to campaigns of other celebrities and it's happening again (thanks FB users for the banner).
The website is nothing but a scam.

There is also a certain FB page that steals fanart and designs from all over the internet and then creates "24 hour only campaigns" using these designs and Jensen's name.

Do NOT buy ANYTHING from any of these!
If you like the promoted designs go and find the originals!
Current #AKF campaign shirts can be bought only HERE.

This is genius vidding - a perfectly edited blend of Teen Wolf and a rollicking Broadway musical song and IT WORKS SO WELL.

This is an introductory post! If you dont already know me, my name is Liam from [ profile] teenwolfbigbang and I'm going to be helping out here for the next couple of months while Misaki is away! She will be unavaible until late November, so if you have any questions please direct them to me.

As of right now we still have ONE FIC that has not yet been claimed. I'd like to point out that anyone that has already claimed a fic, you are able to claim another one! We really need this fic claimed before we can move on to reveal the teams for this round. So everyone go check it out!

Currently, we will not be accepting any more fics for amnesty, so thank you to those that sent in your fics during our amnesty period!

If you have any questions please let me know!

Badbastion could really use our help right now.

Originally posted by [ profile] badbastion at Please help - I'm in a very bad financial place and facing the possibility of being homeless.
I hate asking for help and try to save it for times when I absolutely need it, and now is one of those times.

Please help - I'm in a very bad financial place and facing the possibility of being homeless. )

I'm not in a position to help financially but I can offer words or art to anyone who can contribute.

$5 - A manip or 5 x drabbles
$10 - A quick digital sketch or 1000+ words
$20 - Fic illustration or 2000+ words
$50 - A4 pencil drawing or 5000+ words

Please help if you can. It's easy to say 'Always Keep Fighting' but damn it, it's so hard when stuff like this keeps happening. Sometimes we have to fight for each other.

Just a flyby to say, I know this isn't the majority of y'all's fandom but Hoechlin is doing a Represent campaign to raise money for The ALS Association. There are 11 hours left if you fancy one of the tshirts, which have a really nice design, I thought : )

Love you meeses to pieces. Hopefully I'll be around at the weekend xx
