Latest Fandom gets closer to the metal is out now! Read issue 8 here post-tumblr-fandom.dreamwidth. 📰

Managed to write over 2000 words of fic before heading over to fam today. This was for a challenge that's due next Sunday, so I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself.

Since I complained last week about the huge rise in bangs and challenges for SPN fandom of late...

Another one has literally just launched.

Managed to finish a draft of my fic for the OMG Check, Please! Reverse Bang today 😁 I was able to use the bank holiday to spend four hours getting all the words I needed to make the 80% deadline that's on May 5th.

On the Supernatural fandom front, I have a fic to write for next week's round of SMPC. Still need an idea for that one. Plus I've got another reverse bang to finish drafting for and TFWBB...

Long holiday weekends are good for writing.

So I found out while at work today that my Great Uncle passed away during the night. We haven't been close for a while, but he was a big part of my childhood.

Currently reading a book on Lean UX to distract myself at work.

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir ( and on the board of Facebook.

I do not recommend using Brave.

I'm glad I'm not alone in this...

But I found after waking up that my friend has pushed a fourth time, online...

And your collective discussion makes it clear I don't want to read this.

I think a friend of mine has recommended to me three times that I read Stephen King's IT.

And three times I've said I really don't want to read that novel.

I wonder if she'll listen to the third "no"....?

Has anyone ever done a movie that utilizes the manic pixie dream girl trope but from the girl's perspective. Play it completely straight otherwise. Make it seem like she has absolutely no life outside of interaction with the not-protagonist. Make it like The Truman Show if it followed one of the actors. Make it seem like she's barely even a person. Make it stark and haunting. Have the tone start out cute and quirky and hipstery, but then get more and more uncomfortable. make the audience feel more and more sick about what's happening as time goes on.

I'm pretty sure there's at least one bread baking fan on this instance...

I share this for you!

We managed to get 5 stories claimed in the first 10 minutes. Just got 4 stories left and a bunch of artists who haven't claimed yet.

I am about to launch into the madness of matching people up for SPN Dystopia Bang art claims.

One tab is open and ready to switch the form to live.

Also coincides with a rise in the number of SPN bangs where the mods involved are incognito and thus you have no idea if you can trust who's responsible, because there is no accountability.

the urge to write fanfic is great; the urge to fall asleep face-down on my desk in greater

SPN fandom has waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many bangs at the moment. Like, more than can be supported by the number of artists in the fandom. And it's gotten pretty overloaded in the last two years.
