Fandom [07 Aug 2004|05:26am]
[ mood | thoughtful ]

I was going to do this after work, but I really feel the need to do it now. I don't really know why. I got the idea last night while I was trying to get to sleep, and I really want to do it.

So, I've been wondering a lot about fandom lately. Because it seems like for the past two weeks all fandom has been about is bashing and ranting and hating each other. Now I know that there is not one person on my friends page that got into fandom because they wanted to be hurt or wanted to hurt people. No one got into fandom just so they could call people stupid or be called stupid. We got into fandom because it's fun, and because we wanted to meet people with the same interests as us. Or something equally good like that. I think what everyone needs a reminder that that is what fandom is all about. I think anyway, that's what I need. Because I'm starting to forget that it was ever fun in the first place.

So if you're still paying attention (good job if you are), what I want is for every single person on my friends (yes all 140-something of you) to post a reminder about why fandom is good. It can be the first memory you have, the reason why you got into fandom, something about a friend you've made because of fandom. Anything that can remind me and yourself what it's all about and that it's never really been about which ship is better or which group of shippers is smarter. Because I know it can still be fun and not a crappy place.

Feel free to link others to this journal so they can come do the same. This is something I'm not friend locking, unless it gets out of hand. This wasn't my original plan, but I think it would do good, and hey. It might put a smile on your face to remember something that maybe you've forgotten.

I really want you guys to do this. No matter what fandom you are in. I think everyone needs a reminder of why we're here. Why we all collectively got together as a group and made fandom such a great place, and why it's silly for us to argue and bicker over things that don't really matter when really we should all just...have fun. Because hey, aren't we all just silly fangirls and fanboys at heart?

MWPP Era FicAThon [30 Jul 2004|07:51pm]
[ mood | excited ]

...My reasoning? No one was friggin here to talk me out of it. Damn you _fullofgrace and your having to work. And also? Because I really really want MWPP Fic.

What is MWPP you may ask? Well, first I would smack you, then I would kindly explain that MWPP is Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs. Does this mean you can only have these four characters? No. It includes anyone that is known to have been in that era (ie. Lily or Snape).

Also? I don't feel like I should have to say this, but you never know. These fics should be *set* in that era. Meaning Harry, Ron, Hermione, etc will not be there. Please sign up. It would make me very very happy.

Signups open: July 30, 2004
Signups close: August 20, 2004 (this is only so I can get assignments sent out before school starts again)
Assignments sent: August 21, 2004
Drop Out Date: September 11, 2004
Stories due: October 2, 2004

I've given quite a bit of time to write. This is because I have a lot of trouble with deadlines myself, so I want to be fairy lengthy on the dates.

Here's the form to fill out:
1. LJ name:
2: E-mail:
3. Character/Pairing:
4. Two other requirements (when you'd like it set, certain objects/scenarios you'd like):
5. One restriction (optional):
6. Would you be willing to write an additional backup story if someone drops out?:

Minimum?: 1,000 words.
Max?: As long as you feel nessecary

On October 2, post the fic in your LJ or on your site, and I will post a master list. You will comment to that post, and give me the URL to the fic in comments.

As of now this entry is NOT friends only, so feel free to advertise the fic a thon around (In fact? I highly highly encourage you to do this). I'd love to get a lot of participants.

Feel free to add my journal for fic a thon updates (if you aren't friended already).

Dude. I am *not* insane.

UC Fic A Thon--Better Late Than Never, Right? [26 Mar 2004|10:04pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Author: TopazAngel
Title: Normal
Rating: Eh. PG
Fandom: Buffy/Angel Crossover-ish
Pairing: Buffy Summers/Lorne (slight Buffy/Angel undertones)
Teaser: Buffy had always wanted something normal.
Disclaimer: Not Mine
Other Notes: For the UC Fic A Thon. Sorry it’s so late, and probably far from what you wanted, but I had trouble getting the creative juices to flow on this one, so I did the best I could. Also, this isn’t my usual style, so if it seems a little off, that’s why. It's also a tad on the angsty side. Which I tried to avoid, but I have a problem doing that.

Written for red_a_story

Normal was something Buffy had long grown to accept she would never be.Collapse )

Just to warn, my fics rarely have a difinitive ending, and this is no exception.

Angst!Fic 5/5 [18 Mar 2004|12:33am]
[ mood | I FINISHED A WiP! ]

A couple of extra notes. The rating went from R to PG 13, cause it didn't get as heavy as I thought it would. Also, It didn't end up as long as I thought it would be, but I really like how it turned out.

Previous Chapters:
1-2-3-4

Author: TopazAngel
Title: Everything Falls Apart 5/5
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 1835
Fandom: Angel
Genre: Angst
Pairing: Cordelia/Lindsey (Cordelia/Angel, Angel/Darla, Lindsey/Darla Implied)
Spoilers: None
Timeline: Before ‘Offspring,’ after ‘Billy’
Teaser: As Cordelia’s visions worsen, Darla comes back with a surprise. Cordelia has no choice but to confide in an outsider who just happens back in town.
Distribution: My C/L site, CCF.net, anyone else ask and you can have. Just leave my name on it.
Feedback: Please?
Disclaimer: The characters belong to Joss, David, ME, and all those names that you all should know by now.
Dedication: Tonnie for A) being my C/L partner in crime B) Encouraging me to do this C) Being Cordy to my Lindsey. Sigh. D) For always reading over my stuff in IM so that I know it doesn’t suck *before* I post.
Additional Notes: Yes this is a WiP, but its not like my other WiPs. I actually have it planned in my head, and I know exactly where it is going. I believe in all honesty this fic is going to be some of my best writing to date, and I don't compliment myself often, so I would really like to know what you think.

Because when everything in my life was falling apart, you showed up, just in time.Collapse )

Now, everyone rejoice, Toppie actually finished a WiP, and she actually thinks its good. This probably won't EVER happen again.

So. Feedback, no?

Alias Slash FicAThon [01 Mar 2004|08:04pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Title: Rules of the Game
Author: TopazAngel
Rating: I'd say NC17, but its probably closer to R (one short sex scene)
Fandom: Alias
Pairing: Lauren/Irina
Word Count: 1567
Spoilers: Season 3. Pretty much the whole thing.
Teaser: Sydney’s been killed, and Irina knows who did it.
Disclaimer: JJ Abrams owns all. I’m just using the characters for my own selfish reasons.
Notes: Alias SlashFicAThon entry. I don’t know that its as smutty as you wanted, but I really did try. But R is as far as I could get it to go. Also, you wanted character death, but you weren’t specific, so I played around with it. This really took a different direction than intended. I don't know why my muse always does this. *eyes her* Admittedly, there are some inconsistancies, but I tend to see that in my own fic when no one else does, so yay if you don't catch it. I'm very sorry if you do.


Written for GDaughter in the AliasSlashFicAThon.

Lauren tried to hold herself back, but she couldn’t.Collapse )

Hope you enjoy. :)

OH MY GOD! THERE IS FIC! [27 Feb 2004|11:43pm]

Author: TopazAngel
Title: For Now
Rating: NC-17 (a really short, not very graphic love scene)
Word count: 3109
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel
Pairing: Cordelia Chase/Lindsey McDonald
Teaser: High!School!Cordy/Almost!Lawyer!Lindsey+a college tour in Texas=lurve. Okay, really, I just can't think of a better teaser. Just read it. No spoilers. Its pretty AU.
Feedback: Hell yes.
Distribution: My upcoming C/L site, cff.net, anyone else, just let me know where its going.
Disclaimer: Not mine. This is way to silly for Joss.
Dedication: Nando for helping me with the idea. Tonnie cause we are so C/L partners in crime.
Other Notes: Errm. I’m a freak for writing this. You don’t have to tell me. This is pre-money lossage because otherwise I don’t know why in the hell she would be looking to go to Rice U as it is hella expensive.

Maybe if things were differentCollapse )

Oh yes. Sequel coming. You know it.

Now. Must sleep. I expect reviews in the morning.
