If I were to start a DW community* specifically for feminist** fans of BBC Sherlock:

1) Would you join?
2) Would you participate in, say, weekly discussion posts?
3) Would you be willing to occasionally lead discussion posts?
4) Do you think sherlocked_feminists is a decent name? (I tried to pick one that made clear that the central fannish object is the BBC iteration, not the others--the comm as I envision it wouldn't be hostile to fans of the broader canon, but would specifically be intended for BBC!verse fans.)
5) And should I actually title it Angry Feminists Having Accidental Feels About BBC Sherlock? (to solve the Whose Face Are We Having Feels About Today problem.)

* keep in mind that the experience of [community profile] philedom suggests I am not the world's best community mod, though my intentions are always good.

** with all the caveats that it's not a term everyone identifies with, and that the comm rules would make it clear that it's a broad category, and also that the relevant feminism would be intersectional (e.g., anti-racist, anti-homophobic, anti-transphobic, anti-classist, etc).
My post to [livejournal.com profile] 12daysofxfiles today is up. It's a bunch of Texts From Last Night macros. Twelve of them, in fact. ~~Symbolism.~~

Hopefully LJ is working well enough for you to see them? If not, they'll eventually make it to [tumblr.com profile] textsfromthebasement.

If you are an X-Files person, you should definitely be watching [livejournal.com profile] 12daysofxfiles. There is good, serious fic posted. There is me being ridiculous (this may be repeated). Check in with [personal profile] wendelah1 to see if there are more days that need covering. Like the slot on Friday I switched out of...
Yo, people with LJs:

[livejournal.com profile] het_reccers is having a cage match through midnight (EST) tonight. Mulder and Scully are running against some very nice people from a movie I've never seen.*

Vote right this minute.

*I'm sure I'll like it when I see it, given Whedon + superheroes, but the point remains.
I volunteered again to be a judge for [livejournal.com profile] kinda_gay_award, the Jossverse femslash awards. The mods were very nice about how I was the absolute last judge to get results in, too, because I am a slacking slacker who slacks.

Anyway, I judged in two categories, "Best Canon" and "Best Dollhouse fic," and can whole-heartedly recommend the winners and runners up in those categories. In fact, I can recommend all the stories I judged--there wasn't a bad one in the bunch.

You can read the winners here and all the nominees, in all the categories, are here.

And look! I got a pretty picture for my troubles!

Now would be a good time to go over to the Prompts Post and leave suggestions for things you'd like me to cross-stitch.

I think I'm allowed to cross-post this entry, since it's not the fanwork itself. :) Flashfic from the [community profile] philedom challenge: A Haunting, for the prompt "Reggie Purdue and Fox Mulder, that unpublished mystery novel."

*cheers wildly for [community profile] philedom*

So, I have like a millionty things I should post about. However, I wanted to make sure people know that Ye Olde Original Pornbattle is happening, Sunday through Thursday of this coming week. You can follow it here on LJ or here on DW; hint, the DW character count for a comment is much, much longer than on LJ, so you can fit longer stories into comments.

(Among my nefarious reasons for promoting this is that I kind of want there to be energy to run another round of xf_pornbattle at some point in the future. Because I'm, you know, Like That.)

Although prompts just closed, therefore the list isn't up, in the interest of nudging folks onward I've compiled all the posts with X-Files prompts. There's a lot of MSR, some other ships, and a ton of crossovers, most of which, interestingly enough, seem to be Scullyslash of various types.

prompt links under the cut )

I'm really excited to see so many XF prompts, especially since it seems like are so few active (and especially monofannish) XF fans these days. But, you know, ur-fandom of the internet, yadda yadda yadda, we will always be in everyone's hearts, blah blah blah, our protagonists are the sexiest characters in the history of television, you know what I mean. Go write some porn.

(And I'm mentally committing to myself that I'll do everything in my power to write something for this round. Even though I'm on vacation with my in-laws, which, in case you were curious, is not so conducive to pornifying. The goal is at least something MSR, and, then maybe a crossover if I can manage it. I thought I'd gotten all my porn-writing fix out of the way during xf_santa. I'm denying that instinct.)
