Word is spreading of a new fic and art exchange for Black Sails:

http://blacksailsexchange.dreamwidth.org/

...yeah, I keep reading it that way too. :D

Anyway, nominations opened today and will be open until April 5, and you can nominate characters and relationships (both & and /).

I don't feel ready to try writing any Black Sails yet, so I'm sticking with Night on Fic Mountain for my spring-into-summer exchange needs, but I hope anyone interested out there has a great time!

Welp, [personal profile] kerithwyn just made it look too tempting, so I've nominated a few fandoms for the small fandom fic exchange [community profile] nightonficmountain (on LJ it's [livejournal.com profile] ficmountain). Nominations close tomorrow (March 31), and signups begin April 1 and close April 15. (Here's the current tag set.)

I nominated The Sting (1973), Trapeze (1956), and Sinbad (TV). There are some other very tempting items already in there--Spy Game, for instance. And Elfquest, and Isaac Asimov's robot series, and Almost Human. And MASH, and the Tale Of The Five book series, and the Less-Than-Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal. Etcetera. I'm sure there'll be four things I'd like to ask for in there, and five to offer.

The writing period does overlap with a trip I have planned. But on the other hand, that trip is to visit like-minded friends, and I'm sure they won't mind if I'm still writing while I'm there, or maybe picking their brains, or making big sad need-a-beta eyes. O______O

Look at how sad they are. Makes you wanna beta for them, doesn't it? DOESN'T IIIIT.

As a followup to the idyll discussion of the other day, may I boost the announcement of [personal profile] arduinna's Idyll Challenge! Open challenge, for fic, vids, art, etc. Here's her post, where you can actually see the molecules aligning as she talks herself into it. \o/

I also like her two-tracked chart, with the Cave->Shack line parallel to, but with its start point set slightly further back from, the Desert Island->Idyll line. ARDUINNA IT IS ALMOST LIKE SCIENCE.

I also also seriously wish that the Pros story "In Hot Water: an Idyl" was available somewhere online, instead of (as far as I can tell) just on the Pros story-CD set. Does anyone know, are there any flexibilities for sharing any of those CD stories, like private email circulation?
