I ended up signing up for [community profile] fandomgiftbox, which is sort of [community profile] fandom_stocking in the summer with slightly different rules. I had fun treating it last year, so why not.

Wish there were more people in my fandoms in [community profile] multifandomdrabble fest. Sign ups open for another day!

I know people have been looking for nice Bill icons from this series of Doctor Who. Here are a bunch made by [personal profile] luminousdaze, along with 12, Missy, Clara and a bunch of the gang.

I really like this essay by [personal profile] lydy: The Rules: A Memo for Every Man in My Life.
Instead, I want to address something that comes up over and over in these conversations, and always from men. "What are the rules?" "How can I know how to behave if you won't clarify what you want?"

Dear men, please do not ask me to provide to you something that I have never had. I cannot provide you the rules. I do not know what they are, and I never have.

Pitssburgh Queer History project has some great archival material here.

ETA: For those who like Murderbot Diaries, Martha Wells is doing an AMA here, and here's a quote from the next one.

Yay, yay! I need to do that too. Sounds very fun!

Did you see the thing going around on Tumblr about the US Nat Park Service preserving queer history? It was great.

If I write ANYthing I'll be happy. Argh, writing discipline, why don't I have any.

That was both useful and interesting; thank you for the link!

Have fun with [community profile] fandomgiftbox. I think I failed to sign-up last year, because of their slightly different template and I just looked at it again and I think I'll fail at signing-up again. Haha.

But I'm considering signing-up for [community profile] multifandomdrabble after all. (It's just 100 words! It won't kill me... Famous last words?)

On the other hand, I really want to get started on writing Diana/Peggy and, I don't know. I should probably not take on more things while TRB is on the horizon. It was not the plan to be on that event mod team, but now I am and I at least want to have a chancce to write a few ficlets for it, despite the work.

Thank you for linking the icons!!! I'm always looking for more Bill icons! I shook my EveryWoman gift and I think I might get some Bill and I'm very excited. \o/

It's kind of a fiddly sign up, isn't it? I like fandom stocking better.

Yeah, me too. :P

I ended up just pasting it into word and picking away at it for a couple days.

I tried that last year and gave up halfway through and I won't even try this year. And there are too many other things running anyway, so maybe it's better for me and my to-do-list. XD

Every now and then I read things like this and wish I wasn't writing a bizarre crossover that doesn't have a home in either fandom. LOL On the other hand, this is one of the more significant things I've ever written (exorcising a lot of demons), so I can't be all that sorry about it.

True. I never expected my Burn Notice/Doctor Who fic to take off, but I still get favourites and reviews on it. Still... I'm just not sure about this one. Right now it's being written for myself and one other person, and I'm fine with that. Definitely doesn't follow the tropes for either existing fandom, not to mention it's insanely long. It's serving its purpose for me, though, and that's enough. :)
