Have fun! \o/

From watching con videos and personal experiences. Meant as parody, not to single any person/s out in particular. Observational humour-esque!
* I have my alphabet soup fic back from eilidh17 's beta (because she is brilliant!) and just have to make a few changes before it is completely... complete. I am pretty excited for this soup, I can't wait to see how everyone tackles the topic of time travel. It is such a daunting topic, but at the same time, an intrinsic sci fi trope.
* I have three other fandomy projects going too, I just need *time* to get to them all.
* RDA's newest 'selfie' is adorkable. *g*
* Over at event_horizons , we still have the Season Three Challenge running until the end of the month. Any and all are welcome! I have some ideas for smaller challenges for the comm down the track, because *time*.
* Still can't believe I actually wrote Jack/Sam a few weeks back. it was just an idea that begged to be written down. I am absolutely blown away by the OTPers who gave it a shot, that is fucking humbling. <3
* Pants down icon, because reasons. :D
I cannot express how much I hope this bears fruit. No, this is not a sob story. No, I don't want pity. What I do need, what we need and hope for, is help from those who can afford to help, either by donation or by signal boost.
So if you have the time and inclination, please do boost this.
Much love and thanks.
<3 <3 <3
Just a few tidbits that stand out for me because most stuff is now covered with the Debrief.
It has only been 4 days since we launched event_horizons on Dreamwidth. eilidh17 's brilliant idea for a lassez faire all genre prompt and challenge comm with no pressure, no sign ups, just a community of ideas to inspire each other. The response has been truly amazing, the works produced have been a pleasure to read, such fun!
Sign ups are now open for the 2014 jd_ficathon , a big thank you to everyone running the comm, princessofgeeks , sid , et al. Go make some J/D lovin'! <3
The stuff coming out of fedcon has been so lovely, con reports and photos. annejack in particular has been very generous in sharing her photography skills and writing up a few quite detailed reports on the Stargate panels.
There are of course mixed reactions on the Stargate movie reboots. I'll be interested to see where they take the franchise. I do like the original movie, and whatever they do isn't going to diminish or take away from what we have and have built ourselves from the TV series. I'm happy to give it a go as an AU, or even its own entity. And speaking of, eilenna has posted Star One's 'The Eye of Ra', a mini musical about the events of the original movie in which Jack, Daniel and Shauri sing! (Floor Jansen plays Shauri, and being a huge Nightwish fan, I think this is *very* cool!). I highly recommend checking it out, eilenna has provided the movie clip version and the stage version in which the performers adorn Stargate inspired attire.
And, geonncannon 's Stargate fandy novel 'Two Roads' is out now! \o/
So go write, meta, manip, draw stick figures, if you're moved to.
I am 3/4 through a little something (a very little something). I even watched Meridian *sniff* (it was in my rewatch anyway, but...)
All the info you need is here! <3
I lost access to the server on which I was hosting a fair amount of the site's content a while back, so for now until I can figure out what else to do, fic for all the authors on there has been linked externally, as is the artwork. About half of the music videos are available at the moment, but if you are interested, please download sparingly so that it doesn't eat up the limited bandwidth. I am willing to email video files if anyone wishes.
The site has also had a facelift and more up to date content has been added. It's a bit haphazard, but the best I can do with a free site and limited HTML knowledge.
Myths of the Gate hosts fan fiction, fan art and fan videos from magnavox_23 , sg_wonderland , eilidh17 , Colonel Sock, Cags & Aegir. Please check it out and let me know what you think!

LJ content will continue to be posted to the LJ community while sg1_debrief will be for Dreamwidth Stargate SG-1 content. Both will continue to be weekly newsletters. If you are interesting in subscribing to the Dreamwidth comm, please head on over to sg1_debrief . Also check out our welcome/sign up post and leave us a comment if you would like to share your Dreamwidth wares.
If you so feel the desire, please consider pimping out the comm so we can get any many journals and communities in to spread the SG-1 love!
Thank you guys for all of your input and help with this. <3
Our reason for venturing down this path is to catch as much fandom activity as possible, further spreading the incredible talent of our members to the greater community. In order to make the Dreamwidth community work, we would need the help of the membership here to lock into the comm, so we can capture fandom activity, thus making the newsletter a viable option.
Our question to you is: Can we make this work? Is there enough interest from those who use Dreamwidth to make a SG1 Debrief community work here?

The daniel_vala "Where Are They Now-apaloosa" is taking sign ups - I assume up until Nov 1st when it starts. All you have to do is make a little something any fan art/fictiony medium with the theme of where you think Daniel are Vala are now (now being from Unending to whenever/wherever). Pick a day, write some porn, draw some stick figures - share the love!
And of course the annual dv_exchange holiday gift project sign ups are open, leave your wishes and what you are able to give in return - deadline to join in is Oct 30th. This is the exchange's 6th year running - that's a lot of happy holidays, let's make it another one!
