lo, a post of random

1. Sign-ups are open over at spn_j2_xmas. Do I have room for one more exchange? Do I? Erg.

2. It occurs to me that much as I love the spirit of SPN RPF fandom, possibly there are other fandoms that better combine the wonderful crack (mermen! dragons! empaths! were-echidnas! although I'm still waiting on that last one) with the unsquicky rom-commy het I yearn for. Any recommendations? Preferably a Western fandom with either a fair bit of activity or a fair backlog of fic. (I suppose I ought to go hunt up some Marvel movieverse fic, hadn't I? But where does one even start? And is there enough het crack to make it worth my while?)

3. As soon as I post my epic list of A/B/O, of course I find something I'd have put on it. Specifically, No Limited Dimensions, by cleflink, in which John Watson is shot and wakes up in a world of omegas and alphas and other things he doesn't understand at all. It's gen, and it's GLORIOUS.

Your epic list of a/b/o is one of my new favorite things EVER. I've read a number of the fics on it already, but can't wait to find the time to read the rest :D

Also GAH, EXCHANGE! I want to sign up, but my time is going to be severely limited starting at the beginning of October. Once I get my present 2 challenges done and out of the way, I need to stick my nose to the RL grindstone.

YAY. I am so glad to hear that it's of use!

I want to sign up, toooooo, but I'm thinking maybe I should take the holiday season off from fannish commitments.

Last year I did that, and I spent the time I wasn't going RL crazy working on fics that I wanted/needed to finish and getting a head start on my big bangs. I definitely benefited once big bang season hit and I had zero time to write anything on any sort of regular basis.

Yep. It's not like I lack for things to write, and it would be excellent to get a head start on the big bang I want to write for next year. It's just, everybody's signing up! And signing up is so much fun! (Honestly, I think it might be the best part. The anticipation...)

I love rec lists (they're often how I find things, especially when exploring new fandoms/pairings tropes), but I am often reluctant to rec things myself, partially because of Odd Internet Shyness, and partially because I almost always think I should not have a single rec, but some kind of huge list, and then I'm like, "Oh that's work." Or how I intended to do a SPNJ2BB rec list, but then didn't get around to reading some of the fics I wanted to read before I typed one up. I'm lazy, basically.

That said, I'll rec on memes and things like spnstoryfinders, if I happen to like a fic of a sort that someone else is looking for.

Ha ha. Yeah, I keep a running list of things I want to rec whenever I next do a recs post, but if it's for a fandom I don't read in much or just stumbled across, then I'll just post it separate. Or sometimes if I REALLY LOVE SOMETHING A LOT and have to tell everyone RIGHT NOW, I'll do an instarec instead of saving it for the recs post. But I don't like doing that, because then I can't decide if I should include it in the regular recs post or not. Dilemma!

That said, I'll rec on memes and things like spnstoryfinders, if I happen to like a fic of a sort that someone else is looking for.

*nod* I do very much like linking people to exactly what they're looking for. I always check into the new f_fa post for that, even if for no other reason, because they have a "fic recs" thread in the beginning of every post.
