Fannish Things

1. Be the First is running again: btfchallenge - a ficathon where people write the first fic for a fandom. (Not an exchange or anything!)

2. I have a gift for [community profile] hetswap already! Now I just have to wait for reveals with some impatience. (Well, that and sort out my assignment, of course.) *shakes present till tags fall out*

3. There is still plenty of time to sign up and leave prompts for dw_guestfest! It has only a 500 word minimum, and is a public service to write more good fic for DW minor characters, because it doesn't happen so much out in the wild. (There are ways to take part if you're not on LJ, too; never fear.) You don't need to sign up to leave prompts. (And don't forget to check out the current list for inspiration.) (I'm sorry to go on about it again, but this post felt wrong without a third thing, and we could certainly take more sign-ups and also prompts.)

Be The First sounds fun! I have actually Been The First a couple of times (as far as I know). Can't think of a fandom right now, but it's a nice thing to do (and also a bit frustrating, knowing that you're not only The First, but also The Only). Why will people persist in having their own opinions about what's good?! ;)

Having been the first myself a few times, I fully support it, even if I have a ficathon going on already. But the thing is, you never really know you're the only till you've been the first... ;-)

*narrows eyes* Why do you keep telling me about all these cool fannish things that I really don't have time for? Er, I mean, thanks, Be The First looks cool! ;) I have been the One and Only with a few, I wonder if I have any plotbunnies lurking for another... *wanders off to check old fic folder*

But if you wanted to write a fic anyway, and it fitted with a bingo prompt, it'd hardly even count as something extra... ;-)

And, heh, sometimes I say because they look cool but I can't fit them in - someone needs to encourage the people!

Yikes, I almost forgot about guestfest. Thanks for the reminder.

Be the first sound fun! Putting my thinking cap on...

My pleasure! :-)

Be the First does. I have a lot of fandoms in which I've been the first, but I think I need to keep things clear while guestfest runs - but it's a great idea and worth a pimp, I felt!
