If we don't hear back from the PBFE mod by mid-next-week, I would like to...

Start a parallel community for a do-over of this last round.
7(50.0%)
Start a parallel community and just post all the results

Post my fic in my journal and grump.
1(7.1%)
So over it. Grrrr.
1(7.1%)
Can you get back to me? I'm still rewriting my fic, now that I have more time...
0(0.0%)


For those of you who picked "Start a parallel community for a do-over of this last round," I'm willing to create that community (a co-mod is always welcome) and post up all the fics. So that would mean emailing me with your FIC (including the original prompts you wrote for!), which I would then format and post-up anonymously. I can link the ones already posted back to their PBFE entries.

Anyone interested?

Heh, I quite like Penguin Brigade Flailing Energetically.

So I guess no reply from almostforgiven then? I was just thinking about it today, Julia and I had talked about waiting until September and then going ahead and starting a new community if there was no word from her by now.

I know you really want to finish this round off right, and I'd be all for doing a re-posting of fics and then the reveal, or something along those lines, but what about further exchanges? Would you still want to do another one in the future?

But yeah, overall, I would definitely be interested (as I'm sure you're aware, with all whining about the exchange lately).

Seems like we've got several like minds on this issue...

As in, host one or participate in one? Definitely participate, host if necessary. I'm just really sorry that she'd didn't let someone else co-mod. That would have solved the problem entirely, and she did a great job with the first round. :(

I do want the reveal, if we can do it, because I think that's part of the reward for the authors. And I hate that it's been 2 1/2 months and we're not even half-way through the fics. :(

:p Funny that we were thinking about the same thing at virtually the same time.

Ah, gotcha - so your aim is more to get the last one finished? Because I would definitely be willing to organize the next one. I'm also disappointed that she hasn't come back (and hope that everything is alright with her and it's simply a case of her losing interest in the fandom or being too busy with RL stuff and not somethine worse) and that she didn't have a co-mod, which I really think would be necessary if a new community is set up. I was just looking through the community, and she really did do such a nice job organizing it and setting up the first two rounds, would be such a shame to start it all over, but at this point I'm thinking about where to go from here, now that it really seems like she may not be back.

That is so sweet-- thank you!

The starting/managing/coding doesn't phase me. But the pretty layouts and stuff (and banners and whatnot) I'm just not good at! Got any fabulous skillz there? (I so need to find more people who do) ;)

I definitely think we should do a proper reveal. I think most everyone knows already who wrote what because everybody has posted their stories to their journals, but it would be nice to do it right and make people banners and such. I'm pretty sure I could get clex_monkie89 to help out with that. I would be willing to help out and participate in another exchange should someone want to do it.
The Good, The Bad and The Lanathelana on September 2nd, 2006 05:32 am (UTC)
That would be cool. She did such a nice job on the banners last time. It would be neat if you guys could poke her to do it again.

I'm pretty sure I can get her to do it. I'll bribe her with SamandDean porn if I have to. :P

Hehe, that is an oddly perfect descriptions of some of the pre and post exchange reactions :D

It speaks its own language!

Perhaps it's a previously unknown Jungian archetype. ;)
Fire, caves, dark, light, earth... penguins!

Penguins always win!

Hee-hee! These are great!

Do I flunk, or win, if I tell you that the only part of "Madagascar" worth watching is the paranoid, plotting penguin subplot? ;)

I wrote a House/Wilson piece of weirdness for 60_minute_fics tonight. And the Drabble Meme is done-- including an X-files snippet. ;) And yours that you won't read! *pouts*

I could not fit penguins into any of them, though. :D

Ooops, I hope I wasn't detracting both of you from doing your 60 minute things!

I promise, I promise, when I get around it. I also saw a rather compelling looking Supernatural Gen drabbles thing!
