So the Get Inked contest has 3 entries which you can now go read and vote on. Grand Prize gets a cutsom banner and the runners up get a set of buttons. There are 2 TB/SVM stories and 1 TMI…but seriously you need to read them all…even if it’s not your fandom. They are THAT good. :)
So go to the Get Inked contest page to read and vote!
Banners will go up in the next few days…I have one and a half made. But yesterday was my middle man’s birthday party-he turns 4 tomorrow!!! Sheesh. Anyhoo-I have no story updates for you today, but there are a few chapters in progress.
On another note, there is a HUGE thread over on Facebook about the lack of new stories/updates in our SVM/TB community. We’ve been brainstorming ideas to drum up some traffic and newbies and to inspire old authors. If you have any ideas, please let me know…I’m here (there’s contact boxes like everywhere…definitely up in the sidebar), twitter (@kelpie_169), tumblr (Kelpie’s Korner), AO3 (kelpie169), TWCS (kelpie169), FictionPad (kelpie169)…I’m all over the place. So please, let me know if you’d like more contests, fic exchanges, challenges, daily/weekly prompts…whatever. And, as always, any recs you have for stories or authors to spotlight, let me know as well. I have almost no free time and the stories I do find are usually either recs or from a random facebook post.
And another, more bitchy (sorry!) note, I’ve noticed an uptick in “spotlights” being done around…and it’s getting to the point where I’m staking my claim. I started spotlights 3 frickin years ago. You wanna do fanfic reviews, yay! Go for it, more power to you! We need more of them-but call them something else. Please. There’s all this hoopla about plagarism (including *ideas!!!*) running rampant everywhere so I’m calling foul. Spotlights are my idea and I’m feeling overly protective of them-especially since I put so much time and effort into doing them. Again, sorry for the bitchy-I almost never do this-but I’m tired of it. :)
Again, go read the contest entries and vote! I don’t have a limit on how many times you can vote, so have at it and have fun. Thanks again lovelies!!!
