Project Smallville: The Countdown, Day 3  
So far:
Welcome Post
Day One
Day Two
And we're back with another edition!

Today in Picspam Wars, we have amandajane5 with Hands. Hey, does anyone else feel like a total whore when they are all 'oohh I think Tommy won this round' in amandajane5's journal but then 'oh, MR for su-ure!' in herohunter's? Just me?! ok. *shuts up* Is not my fault I likes them both!

We'll be celebrating Season 2 today, so keep an eye out on teot's journal for a season celebration post: Part One and Part Two.
And frelling_tralk has posted Season 2 clips.

Now... on to our Special Event: Lose Your Fannish Virginity Day
This will be held on MONDAY, but since it may take a little while to pluck up your courage decide what you want to do, this post is a starting point. So you've got the weekend to plan = no excuses! ;-)

Here's a list of suggestions for what you could do:
1. Write something (a fic, a drabble, some meta, a poem, anything you haven't written before--try out a new pairing or a new genre)
2. Make something (an icon, a manip, a banner, a fanmix)
3. Post something to LJ (a photo, a picspam post, a youtube vid, a poll, a music track, a rec)
4. Read or watch something new (challenge yourself by trying a writer or genre you don't usually read, watch a vid of a character or pairing you don't usually watch)
5. Participate in something (take part in a challenge--try summercon for lots of possibilities, post in our Welcome Post, post something to a relevant community, enter a discussion, leave someone detailed feedback on a fic, vid or piece of art you really enjoyed, volunteer to do something for one of the comms you like, beta for someone)
I'm sure you can come up with a stack of other ideas. There are no hard and fast rules for this--use your own discretion--if it feels 'new' to you, then it counts. This is about taking a baby step out of your comfort zone and trying something new. In fact, the more creative you can be about which 'Virginity' you are losing, the better. If you really, REALLY think you've got no virginity left at all, then you can link to a past experience--share your first icon with us. Share your first piece of writing, share you first LJ post! And yes, you can lose more than one 'Virginity' on this day. It's SV fandom: we're flexible like that. ;-)

Now remember--on Monday we are going to have a post here on my journal to share the experience with others. So for now, just get thinking. And if you need any help (e.g. you don't know how to post a photo in your journal), then feel free to ask in the comments below. The chances are there is someone who'll be able to point you in the right direction. *g*

Hey, and you guys are just teasing me with the 993 comments on the Welcome Post, right? There are new people! Go say 'hi'! I trust we will be over the 1000 mark when I wake up tomorrow. *g*

ETA: Thank you!
acampbell has dedicated her post of Favourite Scenes and Moments from Transference Part One and Part IV of Crossroads to the Project. *loves*

it's almost funny to me how serious an erotic relationship i have with photos of tom and michael. the hands photos, woof!

this virginity project should be fun. maybe i'll do a drabble and actually post it in public. skeery! *g*

HEE!! Yes, I know: those hands photos are awesome! I can stare at them for soooo long. It's weird to think how intimately we know their bodies--in 2D at lest.

Yay! \o/ It would be super-cool to post a drabble. Hopefully less scary with folks around to share the experience. :-)

I like both too ... it's too hard to choose between the two!!!

Okay, now you have made me think! I have posted fic, pics, manips, and clips!!! But, I might have to think of a pairing besides Clex (cuz that's all I've written).
Becky: Contentcinderella81 on September 23rd, 2006 10:20 pm (UTC)
I'm replying to my own post, because I thought you might enjoy my post for today: http://cinderella81.livejournal.com/2006/09/23/

Hooray! I've added it to today's round-up.

Cool *blushes with humbleness*

Heeee. Taking the plunge out of Clex, perhaps? Yes, I think for many of us we've covered all those bases--which is why I am allowing people to post retrospectively to their 'first' something. I think sharing that will also be fun. But I do hope people have a go at thinking up something 'new' as well. *g*
Becky: Clex Lifeguardscinderella81 on September 23rd, 2006 11:20 pm (UTC)
I already wrote something new ... a pairing I have never done before, and I am thinking of doing a manip to go along with it!

Oh WOW! You are cool! Yay. This will be so much fun!
Becky: Cinderella81cinderella81 on September 23rd, 2006 11:30 pm (UTC)
I know, I'll have to hold back and wait to post it Monday ... Tomorrow I plan on posting links to a couple more of my stories, and maybe some more icons

*nods* Hold back until Monday for the new stuff, but yeah, definitely let me know if you post more stuff in the meantime. It's so great how everyone's getting into the spirit of things--people keep coming up with ideas!

Hi Friend,

I don't have much time and I need to go lay down and rest for a little while, but I wanted to let you know that I finished one of my projects for the Project Smallville: The Countdown...it's the big ol' Lexana: Through The Years picquotepsam. I've already posted it in my journal (which I have opened to the public just for this one week, to avoid the hassel of getting several hundred emails of...I can't read your posts they're f-locked, lol this time they're not)...anyway here's the link: Lex&Lana: Through The Years picture/quote/misc. spam. --

If you feel so kindly as to pimp it out when you make your next post or whatever and if you want to come by and visit my journal and see the post itself...I put A LOT of work into it and that's not the only project I'm doing. Alicia and I are collaborating on a couple and I'm still doing the fan mix for Lana Lang: Through The Years...plus, I've decided that I'm going to do an MR/KK picquotespam as well. *g* So watch for that in the upcoming days and nights. Hee. *hugs*

I know that you asked me to email this to you and I did, but I'm sorry your email account bounced it back to me for some reason and I wanted you to be able to see this and also update with a link to it if you didn't mind. :)

I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know it was up.

Pimpage is occuring!! Sorry about the delay. I had a quick squiz and it looked AWESOME. Will have to have a closer look later. *grinz* Thanks, hon!
just a girl: lexana (sv) | heaven_touched on September 24th, 2006 05:59 am (UTC)
Awe, yay!!! Thank you so much, rotfl. No. No. No, it's okay. *g* Awe...yeah, I was hoping it would manage to rally the Lexana fans into getting all riled up and also give 'em the pretty to oogle. rotfl. Next on my list to finish up the fan mix for Lana Lang: Through The Years and also to start getting to work on the MR&KK picquotespam. Hee. :)

Awe, yay. Well just come on back and happily oogle the shiny goodness. :)

I just emailed you, to let you know that the Erica Durance (Lois Lane) pic!spam is up and running. :) It's only the first day of Erica's pic!spam, so I have more coming along ;)
amandajaneamandajane5 on September 25th, 2006 04:28 pm (UTC)
Hee! That's okay, hon! We totally don't mind!

You do know we both read the comments on each other's journal's, right?!
