So, I'm discovering that, lately, my approach to LJ is just stopping by occasionally to create list-posts of everything I have on my fandom plate at the moment. Which, is a lot, lol.

FIRST though - I AM NOW MARRIED. MY WEDDING IS DONE, YAY! Haha. It was an awesome day, darn near perfect, and it was all around wonderful. I hope to share some pics and maybe some little stories from it soon, but I'll make that its own post. For now, have a FANDOM PROJECT UPDATE.

Unfortunately, I ended up dropping out of the [livejournal.com profile] spnhorrorbang. Timing wasn't good for me, plus there was an overabundance of artists, I guess, so it just felt like the right decision. Perhaps I'll try to play again next year! (Though, tbh, the genre itself does make me a bit wary - making a claim sight-unseen (or 'unread') on a horror fic makes me a lot more nervous than, say for a big bang. Because I'm kind of a big scaredy-cat XP)

In much happier news, I not only managed to complete my original idea for [livejournal.com profile] j2_reversebang, but I also managed to submit a *second* piece of art as well! And both pieces got claimed by two new-to-me authors, both of whom I'm very much looking forward to working with. My "Young & Dumb & In Love" piece of J2 in a wine cellar was claimed by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] jillmariej, who has excellent rom-com/possibly Christmas ideas for it; my "Wireless Connection" (which had a more specific prompt with it, so I was very nervous that it wouldn't be wanted) art of J2 on Twitter on their laptops was claimed by the awesome [livejournal.com profile] lotrspnfangirl who shares my love for college AUs, so I'm SO very excited to see what she comes up with! Hopefully I'll be as available as my authors need me to be - it's pretty easy to get overwhelmed with so much going on sometimes!

I was able to claim the movie I wanted for [livejournal.com profile] spn_cinema (Legally Blonde!), and I just added another 1.8k words to it last night, putting me over 3k so far - and with plenty of story left to go! My posting date for that is October 26th, so, if I keep trucking away at it, I should be just fine for finishing that fic and getting to share it with all of you.

It looks like I will be working to some extent with [livejournal.com profile] wind_storms and [livejournal.com profile] riyku on a discussion (or discussions) for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_writing comm. Our topic? Beta-ing! There's two sides to that of course, that of the writer and that of the beta, and we're hoping to get a pretty well-rounded discourse going.

Besides ALL of that (!!!) I have also signed up to participate in [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas (my first LJ gift exchange) and [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang. The initial idea I had for the SPN RB doesn't look like it'll pan out, but I've got a few other ideas up my sleeve. I think submissions for that are due sometime in October? (I will definitely double check that soon, lol.)

So yeah! I'm keeping myself crazy busy as usual! But I'm having so much fun collaborating with fellow fans, and embracing my creative side, so I don't regret one bit of it :) We should have the rest of our wedding pics by the end of today, so hopefully I'll share some of those with you this weekend! Hope y'all are having a great day! ♥

WAIT....You got MARRIED??? OMIGOSH!!! Congratulations! That's awesome. And yes, it does deserve it's own post!!! :D

Sounds like you're busy in fandom. I'm doing SPN_Reversebang as a writer, so I'm very excited that you're arting for it! :D

hahaha, YES I did! Thank you! :) Here's a teaser post (https://twitter.com/Dancing_Adrift/status/776091174637625344) for you, because who knows when I'll get the motivation to do it justice on LJ, lol.

I am so, so busy, lol. It's exciting though, and I love it! And I'm excited that you're writing for SPN RB!! :D I'd like to break out of my usual art style, but that didn't really happen for the J2 RB... so we'll see what I cook up. I hope it's liked, at least! XD ♥

CONGRATS again on getting married!!! Glad it went off without lots of stress and any last-minute problems.

I'm finally done with the week from hell, so I hope to get caught up some fandom stuff this weekend and get going on this beta topic! Whee. I'll get back to you when I've put some thoughts down.

Yay for all the challenges you've signed up for! I also had to drop out of the horror bang. I was bummed about it, but the fic was going to end up being a lot longer than the 3k minimum requirement and I just didn't have the time to do the story justice. But it will still get written, and hopefully they'll do it again next year.

Yeah, it all went off very well. I am pleased :)

I look forward to hearing your thoughts! ♥

hahaha - if I have to drop out of cinema (which I really, really don't want to, it will be because this fic gets longer than I expect and I need more time to finish. But I have a relatively decent positing date, so I'm doing my best to stay optimistic. And like you say - if nothing else, we can always hope for a return of those challenges in the coming year so we can post our completed works then! :)

Yesss omg I'm signed up for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas and [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang too, and I still have a nervous plate-full feeling! (Haha my plate isn't very big :P)

But xmas assignments! Today! XD

Woohoo! :D And you've already apparently made progress on your xmas fic - that's awesome! I have to really concentrate on my cinema fic first. Once that's done, then I will... well, I'll probably have to make art for the spn reversebang first... and THEN I'll work on my xmas fic! *phew!* priorities man, lol.

So much stuff going on, no kidding! Haha it's all exciting though, as well as a bit nerve-wracking!
