My fandoms

I hope you are thinking up prompts for the challenge! :D Full details/instructions will be posted on Saturday when I start accepting prompts, but if you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to drop me a line.

Personally I'm hoping to see lots of submissions from 'my' fandoms: Smallville and Battlestar Galactica. It's funny: I watch a lot of other shows and I interact with other fandoms quite often, but I still think of those two as my main fandoms. Anyway, I think there is HEAPS of potential for character studies in both fandoms, so this is my personal appeal to my f'list to think about participating. Remember, it doesn't have to be all earnest and serious--if you want to write a comedic character study (Gaius maybe? Shelby? *giggle*) or, for that matter, a porny one (I know mskatej can be relied on there!), then go for it! Newbie writers/vidders/artists are also very welcome!

Both my main fandoms have served up excellent examples of character studies in vid form this week.

For BSG, daybreak777 has posted rec lists of Kara vids and Lee vids. (I'm particularly excited about the Lee list! *predictable*)

And in Smallville news, capnzebbie has posted an incredible Lex vid: Put Your Lights On. From the song choice on, this is a vid I could never have imagined myself, and every moment of it felt like a revelation--there was not a predictable second. I find now that I'm vidding myself, I appreciate that even more in other people's vids. It's so easy to fall into predictable choices. Well, this vid carves out new ground, I believe. I've been dying to see some big Lex-as-villain vids, and this one puts his turn to the 'dark side' in context. I'm missing the show so much, and this brought all my love for Lex flooding back--even though it's a very dark vid.

    2012 was fucking dreadful. Not ALL of it. But much of it. I've never felt so disorientated, terrified or dissociated from myself and life as I did in…
