Project Smallville: The Countdown, Welcome Post

I've waited long enough!! The trouble with timezones is that it's been September 21st for 14 HOURS with me, but it's still September 20th in the US. *headdesk* TOO BAD. Anyone up late can just start early. *g*

Today's the day! mskatej says we must rock out and I think that is EXCELLENT ADVICE! Thanks to everyone who's volunteered, given advice, provided inspiration, pimped and generally encouraged with the requisite amount of squeeage. *g* Special thanks to svmadelyn whose Smallville Glee Week last year is our inspiration.

Q: What IS this Project Smallville: The Countdown?
A: A week of special celebration posts and activities across LJ to countdown to the Season 6 Smallville Premiere on September 28.

Q: So, is there a comm for this or something?
A: Nope, coz I am lazy because we thought it would be more fun to spread the love around a lot of different journals. *g* I'll be posting updates of what's on daily on my journal, so wave people over here throughout the week! All pimpery welcomed--got someone on your f'list who's new to SV? Send 'em on over! For anyone that friends me for the week to get updates on your f'list, I give you my word that I will not take it personally if you defriend at the end of the week. *G*

Main events
Ready! Set! Go! Right here, right now, there's an Introduction thread, so you can get to know other fans/make your personal Smallville declaration for Season 6/make friends and find out who else you might bump into during the week. This is the perfect place to find new friends, catch up with old friends, and generally kick off the squee-fest! Scroll down for more details.

Thursday-Thursday Spoiler chat with aelora! This is the place for all of you that want to squee, moan and chat about the upcoming season. Please remember that some of us are spoilerphobic, so if you want to talk spoilers, do so HERE rather than in other posts.

Thursday-Thursday Tommy/Michael Picspam war, hosted by amandajane5 and herohunter. Get ready for the Pretty, folks--and keep your fans handy--it may be too much to handle! ;-) Day One: Chests, Day Two: Smiles

Friday-Sunday and Tuesday-Wednesday Season Celebration posts. It is a COUNTDOWN, so we will be casting our minds back over Smallville's five seasons, a season a day. kristiinthedark will kick us off tomorrow with Season 1.

Monday Lose Your Fannish Virginity Day.
Ever wanted to write but never had the courage? Never made an icon? Thought it would be just too damn hard to make a poll? Had a meta thought but figured it was daft? Well, we've ALL been there! First times are waaaay less awkward when you can laugh about them with a friend and share a little squee of joy at having done something new. Supportive fangirls will be on hand to help you over the jitters, and for those more, er, experienced among us: we'll be inviting you to share one of your firsts with us! More info to follow shortly. But start thinking now about what you'd like to do!

Thursday The good news is that noone's going to be at a loose end as we wait for the premiere episode to air. Forget fidgeting around on your own, and come PARTY with resident emcee mskatej!

Other events
Did you think we left the girls of Smallville out? Fear not! Throughout the week, I'll be announcing posts celebrating Kristin/Lana, Erica/Lois and Allison/Chloe.

Q: How do I get involved?
A: Jump up and down and wave your hands in the air. \o/ No, seriously, if you have a post celebrating Smallville in some way that you'd like us to include, comment here and I'll link people to it. If you're lurking or somewhat new to fandom, now's the perfect time to comment and introduce yourself to your fellow fans!

Many thanks to the lovely norwich36 who suggested the following template. Fill in the following in the comments section below--and check out everyone else's comments as well. Say hi to them! Pimp something! This might just be the place you make a friend for life. *g* Last year I met some very special people this way (you know who you are!) and I can honestly say I wouldn't be here doing this now if it wasn't for them. Think I'm overstating things? Give it a try! I DARE YOU. Check back here over the next few days to see what cool-new-people-you-absolutely-must-have-on-your-f'list have commented.
