Happy International Day of Slash y'all!!! Anyways, my recs I promised. ^__^

Pass it along. ^__~

Just so everyone knows just 'cause I don't rec everyone on my f-list that writes doesn't mean I don't adore y'all all. I'm just trying to get a variety. ^__~

1) Classic rec (a fic that is more than two years old)
Just Push Play by Slim and Without Me JC/Lance, AU RPS *NSYNC
The road less traveled by ghettogreta JC/Lance AU RPS *NSYNC
The Kindest Mortals by Kat Allison Two guys talking. Set after The Modern Prometheus Higlander
2) Newbie rec (a fic that is less than two years old)
beren_writes Corruption Series. Awesome. Harry/Draco and totally AU.
3) An author rec beren_writes She writes HP, Virus Buster Serge, Supernatural, Anita Blake and a couple of other fandoms. Wonderful fics all. ^__~
creedcascade X-men, Fastlane, The Professionals and lot's of others. One of these day's I'll have to go to a convention that's she's going to and 'stalk' her. ^__~
4) A fandom rec The Faculty You must read Void by wax_jism Casey/Zeke/Delilah Yeah ... it's awesome though.
5) A site rec WWOMB

1) How did you get into slash? Your first story? Fandom? Author?
What were you're thoughts on it? Did you think 'OMG other people like me! Squee!!'?

Let's see my Mom remember's me insisting that Top Gun had male/male couple's so, I've definately been doing it since I was ten but, she does say also that I sometimes looked confused during some that I now think are very slashy. LOL
First discovered zines from my Aunt. All the ones are gen but, I'm half afraid to ask her if she's got slash ones. LOL
I first discovered slash on the net but, in '99 or '98. Was really small then. I do remember discovering Yahoo groups when it was ... egroups. For some reason I think it was something before that. I remember it have lot's of those adds for porn links. LOL
I think some of the first I discovered where kind of gen groups but, I think some of the first I joined where actually *NSYNC slash groups. LOL Then I found others. I always knew there had to be other slashers but, I didn't realize how many. LOL


2) Current fav author's, fics, fandoms. What about slashy movies, books, tv shows, amime, manga, etc recs?
Let's see I would totally rec reading X-men fics but, the Bobby/Gambit pairing. ^__~ Gambit still hasn't appeared in the movie series but, after Wolverine the most popular character. Actually him and Wolverine get paired all the time.
Gravitation is one of my favorite manga series. Basically turns into a crack!fic. LOL. Fake is awesome and so is Legal Drug.
Slashy movies: JPIII, Skulls (the first one), Red Dragon, Chronicles of Riddick/Pitch Black, The Forsaken, The Faculty, Blade III, Star Wars (all) and the Thirteenth Warrior. (Probably more but, that's all I can think of right off.)
TV series: Andromeda (until you-know-who left), Quantum Leap, SGA, SG1, Star Trek (any version), Firefly, Miracles, The Dead Zone, Highlander, Battlestar Gallatica, and of course more that I can't think of now.
Books: C.S. Friedman, C.J. Chyrrh, Katherine Kurtz, Tanya Huff, Gordon R. Dickson, David Drake, and of course probably more. ^__~

I'll post mine later on today. ^_~

15th-Jun-2006 12:20 pm - Admin: Fanzine
laugh as only an evil kitty knows how
I decided to restart it. I have plenty of time for this now.

First off I am looking for someone to help co-edit. ^__^ We'll be doing the layout and such. ^__^

All authors must have their fics beta-ed and ready to be put into the zine. You are welcome to get together with an artist or such to put in with your fic if you want. Any fic of any type is welcome. Slash, het, gen, poems, whatever. Drawings are welcome.


I looked around the net and at my "large" collection of fanzines. I took/borrowed what stuff I needed (mainly ideas). ^___^

Some basics for this:

A few of y'all have expressed an interest in participating before but, I am leaving it up to y'all to send it to me. I don't want to "hound" people into this. It's a voluntary thing. Just send it when your done but, please pay attention to our deadline. ^____^

The deadline for all in September first. You must send it by then or it'll be put into a possible future one. If this works out I would like to have one about every year or so. ^__^

The zine should be published in time for the holiday's. ^__~ Price is still kind of questionable ... I am not sure at this point.

My email is alexander_fanzine@yahoo.com
You must send it there.


The editing is up to you so, I would have it beta-ed. If you do need one just post a message in one of the groups for one and explain it to them or ask for one on your lj.

One thing I noticed in most fanzines (or at least the "fan fiction" ones) there is a one year rule. Basically for one year it stays in the zine and after one year you are welcome to ask that it not be published with the zine anymore or you can keep it in there but, at this time you can post it to your own site or do with it what you will. ^____^ It seems to be a common practice and I think it's a good idea for the zine. Basically means we kind of have rights to it. Eh ... I'm not good at legal stuff. For one year the zine will get it exclusively. After that you can keep it in the zine, withdraw it (might be reprints) and/or post it to your site/journal/whatever.

The content: The most important thing is the content. I have thought about what exactly would be "wanted". Since this is the first zine I say just about anything goes. ^___^ Which means fics, poetry, original songs, essays, pics (original ones not manips that's too iffy for me), and whatever else comes up.

You are welcome to "write" about Alexander and his contemporaries, right before his birth (his family) and after his death (the "funeral games" and such). You can base it off of the movie, books, or original but, if it's off of a previously published work it needs to have a disclaimer. Het, slash, fem-slash or gen is welcome. All fics must have warnings. If you aren't sure just ask me if it should have one but, most should be obvious like, violence, non-con, het, slash, etc. For a good description of warnings please see the list info page. ^__~ Those are the type I'm talking about. You don't have to make a short description if you want but, you can. ^___^ For the drawers you can explain what you were thinking about or whatever. You can also get together with an author and draw their fic. (I actually encourage that. ^___~)

I also need the name you want to go by in the fic and how y'all want to be contacted. Whether it be by email, an addy, or some site/journal. Thanks. </b>

Text: It's your call. Each author is encouraged to tell us which one it is and how they want it. It's your fic. ^___~ Also, any bolds, italics or other types of edits too.

Layout: I am not sure yet. I'll

Size and format: It will probably be the more standard stories. Although if the fic is long we may have some done as their own zine. I will also be willing to put them onto cds and such. ^__^

Distribution and Exposure: The exposure will be through any and all related groups. I will try get the word out. ^___~ Of course, if your on such a group but, don't see a post about it from us you are more than welcome to promo if you want. As for distribution ... I have somewhere in mind. I've bought a lot of fanzines from them in the past and they are wonderful. Once this thing is ready I will contact them on my own. They'll basically be like an "agent" and conventions and such. ^____^

Name: This is one I am waiting until I get an idea of the fics, etc. Y'all are welcome to suggest names.

Also, I may adjust this and I am open to suggestion's. ^__^

That's all for now.

Questions, comments, whatever?

Pussinboots  morgana_blue
From one of my yahoo groups
Thirtieth anniversary of Slash ...

Yes. It was only 30 years ago that the very first slash 'zine was published, a Kirk/Spock called "As I Did Thee".

At MediaWestCon last weekend, I saw a flyer for a zine called "Legacy" being published by Kathy Rensch and Jenna Sinclair in late 2006 that will include interviews, articles, and opinions as well as fiction, poetry and art from fandom's best.

They ask that you "Take a journey back in time to your feelings of discovery and share them with the editors". If anyone would like to participate, please contact the editors at

Kathy Resch - kathleen@aol.com
Jenna sinclair - jennaSTS@aol.com>


Side note: I guess I am the same age as slash. ***giggles*** (I just turned thirty yesterday. ^_^)

Anyways, pass along to whomever. ^__^

Since we are supposedly in a thirty/forty year cycle of more hurricanes I created a new group. It's for typhoons too. ^__^ I have ideas for it to be a kind of general group and open. LOL

Anyways,

31st-Aug-2005 01:31 am - OT: Hurricane Katrina
laugh as only an evil kitty knows how
Well, I guess this one has gone down in history. Meh ...


Anyways, my area has lot's of the evacuees and is sending lot's of help to the affected areas. We'll probably be sheltering them for a while since they now say that New Orleans will probably be flooded that'll be over twelve feet high. Considering that the part of the US that was hit is the poorest in the US donations and help will be much appreciated by those affected. There are links for both donations for the people who have survived. Also, info for contact and more info about the whole situation. For those wanting info on relatives and/or friends please be patient since the lines are jammed. Almost every single contact number has been showing busy signals.

Network for Good

Thanks,

18th-Aug-2005 07:30 am - Admin: Restart
laugh as only an evil kitty knows how
Okay, I am going to restart this. So, I would like to know what books y'all would like to read.

We'll have a vote next week and the starting September first we'll go through the book and stuff. Basically we'll have a range of chapters each week and we discuss them and such.

The books can be fiction or non-fiction. Directly related to Alexander or just books about his time period (or right before/right after). We can take other books into consideration but is up to the group as a whole. I am thinking general Greek history books or something similar that just has a mention of him or something but, is really about a group of people or region. ^__^

I will eventually promo to my other groups.

Any suggestions, questions, whatever are welcome.

Thanks,
Menina
