intrigueing: (piper and trickster have no taste)
[personal profile] jadelennox is hosting a dreamwidth friending meme here, and since there's a whole bunch of new people who've subscribed I thought I'd say hello. Hello! Details about me are on my profile.

My current state of fandomness is largely unchanged since winter. I am fangirling a whole lot of fandom history and fandom culture and fandom meta for early (or, to my early twenties self, "ancient" as one friend will never let me forget) fandoms, mainly Star Trek TOS, Starsky & Hutch, and Star Wars. I am firmly not getting excited for Star Wars Episode VII, since I always enjoy this kind of thing a million times better when I'm not anticipating it, but my massive Star Wars love has been steadily rising for the past few months.

Some comms I subscribe to and/or visit semi-frequently (I am also very busy with work and real life, so I have less time for this than I used to), and recommend for people wanting to participate in fandom more on dreamwidth, are:

For discussion: [community profile] fandomsecrets , [community profile] fail_fandomanon 

For fandom events, challeges, etc: [community profile] fandomcalendar , [community profile] fandom_on_dw ,

For fanfic writing: [community profile] onedeadplotbunny , [community profile] fan_flashworks , [community profile] fic_promptly 

And also, if you're a gen fan looking for fic recs, I highly recommend [community profile] gensplosion which recs not just gen fic but usually very unique and creative gen fic.

I subscribe to, but have mixed feelings about [community profile] metanews . It's an awesome posting of recent fandom meta from around the internet, but the links contain a mixture of both eyerolling are-you-fucking-serious pretentious bullshit and omg-that's-really-cool awesomeness in roughly equal measures.

I am currently immersed in writing -- or more like grappling with -- four or five separate fanfics. Why four or five instead of one? Because I'm a fucking idiot, that's why.

A wonderful fandom friend also graciously lent me a stack of ancient sorry, I mean, "older" Star Trek TOS zines from the '70s-'90s and I have been going over them with great glee and will probably post some reflections about them in my journal soon.

I keep telling myself I will post more fanfic recommendations, but I keep forgetting. I am taking this opportunity to remind myself to get on with it.

eta: I also just discovered the Anonymous Writing Feedback Meme [personal profile] anonconcrit , courtesy of [personal profile] moetushie !
