META META META YAY!!

We love talking about our fandoms. We also love talking about why we love our fandoms and why we love Fandom. That's why at every con you'll find discussion panels, and Pacificon 2012 is no exception! Check out the schedule.

Here at [livejournal.com profile] pacifi_cant | [community profile] pacifi_cant , we can meta (yes, it's a verb now) with the best of them. So we thought we might host some discussion panels of our own.

Here's how it works:

• I will list the topics being discussed at Pacificon below.

• You can claim one of the topics as your very own, and write a post about it. The post can be as long or as short as you like.

• You post your meta on the day it's being discussed at Pacificon, i.e., Saturday or Sunday (Pacific time!). NOT BEFORE!

• People can drop into your post and chat away to their hearts content.

Saturday
History of Us: The Evolution of Fandom
Sherlock Holmes (All)
If Loving You is Wrong, I don't Wanna Be Right
Star Trek (All)
Why AU?
Geeky Crafter
F.O.U.F. – Fic of Unusual Format
Bandom

Sunday
Writing What You Don't Know
Due South
Id-fic
Comics (Broad)
I Hear Voices in my Head
Kinky Bitches
Let us tell you a story – Podfic as collaboration
Sherlock (BBC)
Pimp my fandom

Points to Remember
• This is YOUR meta, so write whatever you like on the topic. Don't worry about what might be going on at Bitchin' Party.

• DO NOT post your meta before the day it's being presented. This is out of respect for the panel moderators.

• Comment below to claim your topic.

Look at all the PRETTIES!!! \o/

OMG you guys are AWESOME!! Thank you so much, everyone who participated in the Fic & Icon Exchange! I am so, incredibly thrilled with all of us!! \o/

Admin things:

#1. Please scroll down a few posts to see the note for Givers and Receivers of ICONS. We need to know which ones are shareable and which ones are for their recipients' exclusive use, so please take a second to update your comment/post(s) to clarify that.

#2. YES, you can ABSOLUTELY announce your fic & icons anywhere and everywhere you like! Please pimp this little party as much as you like!

#3. We're still open! There's meta coming -- and there are still loads of meta topics you can nab and post on. In-depth thinkiness is not actually required -- after all, "Hugh Dillon is KITTENS!" is one of the panel topics to choose from. So, yes, feel free to PLAY!

#4. We'll post a master list of Fic & Icon Sets to *both* the LJ & DW comms. Thanks again to everyone for bearing with the shift to Dreamwidth amid LJ's (intermittent/continuing for some of us) server failure. Um. Yay adventures in con-modding? /o\

Again, THANK YOU, ALL OF YOU for writing, iconning, commenting, and making the Fic & Icon Exchange a success! Please continue to share the love, read, grab icons, comment, squee! *twirls everybody*

\o/

ATTENTION ICON MAKERS & RECIPIENTS!

If you RECEIVED icons, *please* make sure that your comment states which *one or two* icons you would like to claim to be yours-yours-yours and no one else's. Note: if you prefer to make them all shareable, that is also fine -- just indicate that in your comment.

If you MADE icons, *please* take a moment to edit your post indicating which icon(s) your recipient claimed allllllll for themselves, so it's clear which ones are shareable to all.

THANK YOU!! ♥

fandom chat/viewing party!

The response to the poll on the Fandom chat and viewing party was low enough that I figure we can play this by ear. So, I'm not going to worry about making a schedule. We can watch whatever people in the chatroom *want* to.

OTOH, IF there's interest in watching a particular thing at a given time? I am ALL OVER THAT. Comment with requests and I'll make it official. :D

Now, let's talk chatroom format. Does anyone have any preferences? I use AIM & Y!M through Trillian. I have Skype. And on occasion, I can make googlechat actually work. We've had the most luck getting Skype to work for the most people, but I'm easy. Tell me what works for you.

I'm willing to watch damn near anything. What about y'all?


The fandom list, again: castle, due south, leverage, star trek: tos, star trek xi, white collar, and c6d -- including but not limited to: hugh dillon's body of work, hard core logo, slings and arrows, wilby wonderful, twitch city, tales of the city, durham county, bsg (leoben eps), and MORE. *g*

Ficlet & Icon Exchange Posting Instructions (crossposted)

For those of you (and me) who can't see the LJ comm, here is a repost of the Ficlet & Icon Exchange Posting Instructions.



HOORAY!!!!

Posting starts now and ends at NOON on Sunday 11 April, CDT.

* If you're still writing or iconning, don't panic! There's still plenty of time before the deadline!
* If you are not able to meet the deadline, let [info]sageness or I know NOW so we can find a pinch hitter. This is an exchange and everyone must get their present!


Icon Makers! Please post (or link) your icon sets to [info]pacifi_cant using the following format:

subject line: [prompt #],[fandom] icons for [recipient] from [icon maker]
teasers: two or three samples
cut-tag text: description of icons

Please remember that Icon Recipients have dibs! They get to claim one or two icons for their exclusive use. Then, once the recipient has claimed the ones s/he wants, all other icons are shareable among everyone!


Writers! Please post (or link) your fic to [info]pacifi_cant using the following format:

subject line: [prompt #], [pairing] fic for [recipient] from [author]
header: fandom, pairing, length, rating, notes if applicable
cut-tag text: Title of story

at end: [insert whitespace/divider/etc.] for [recipient] and prompt.
 
So, for example:
Subject: Prompt #49, Fraser/Kowalski snippet for [info]china_shop from [info]sageness

Due South, FK, 375 words, NC-17, thanks to Mergatrude for insta-beta!

( Hot Sexin' in Our Totally Fictitious Example, Oh Yeah )

***

for China
Prompt: "Coffee, Frase. I need caffeine like you don't even know."

...okay? Okay! Let us know if you have any questions.


Thank you!

Third! The MultiFandom chatroom will open in a few hours, say, at 5pm Central time! Unless y'all want me to open it sooner. If you do? COMMENT and we'll make it happen! \o/

And fourth, VERY SOON, the GAMES will begin! ♥
