Multi Fandom Flood-Relief Benefit


My offering's here and here ♥.

If anyone who is a friend of fandomfusion would like to signal boost their own offering, train_lindz and I won't object to you posting here. Just spreading the word. Feelings about fandom-sponsored aid varies, we realize.

But since I'm here . . . Lindz, ought we do something productive with this place in 2011? Thoughts?

Anyone? Leave us a note in comments, if you're inclined to re-infuse your fandom spirit :). Or tell us to leave you alone. That goes in comments, too.

Hey, super groovy people, the writing community pulped_fictions is running a pretty neat-o event for original writing and art. Winterval will be festive from December 1 - March 7. Different writing and art categories in which you can participate in and contribute to will be ongoing during that time. Commitment? That's your call. Tailor the commitment to match the involvement level suitable for you.

The primary commitment is signing up. And that is really the biggest. Next is follow through, then it's something else, and then another thing after that - as I assured you, no biggy, right? I'm kidding. pulped_fictions is a joint that's open year round, and its stress dial is set on low. But not so low it can't ignite the fire in your belly. Winterval's writing and art events are styled for a participant to make independent, individual contributions, but the ethos of the event is teamwork! Sign-up by December 1st to be assigned to a team and together you and your teammates earn points to basically win winter. Doesn't everyone want a winter of their own? Unless you are in the Southern Hemisphere, in which case you settle for summer.

pulped_fictions is a closed community. This means you join-up to join-in. But if anyone is up to trusting me, take my word for it that it's a super groovy place to write and make visual art. See? It's for super groovy people like you.

The pulped_fictions mod may be willing to accept bribes if you ask to be on the Black Team. That's my team. Nothing says Winterval like Black. fandomfusion's co-mod train_lindz is on the Blue Team so if you want to win, avoid that Team.

A/N: This story has been stored in my memory and in bits on my hard drive for a while, and fandomfusion's genfic and art challenge was a chance for it to have an official lj home. It was meant to be enjoyed, and I hope that happens if you read. It's unbeta'd, so politely point out spotted errors.


PS - I owe everyone who contributed to fandomfusion's first challenge loads of reviews. I finished my month long work project tonight ::silent scream:: and my free time has returned. I ♥ you all for being part of this!

Author’s Notes: There was a deadline? ;) Many thanks to the mods for organising and inspiring. I've used a famous film/TV series quote about halfway through this, which should be instantly recognisable as definitely not being my words but I have highlighted it at the end. Feedback is always much appreciated. :)

Fusion's Musins'


Art must recreate, in full consciousness, and by means of signs, the total life of the universe, that is to say, the soul where the varied dream we call the universe is played.

-- Teodor de Wyzewa, 1886


I've suffered for my art, now it's your turn.
