Back to business?

Thanks to pessi_mista, I'm giving this old LJ a new chance.

By now all of my friends have long moved on to greener online pastures, and naturally I've followed them. Yet, Pessi convinced me that there may still be some things left to be done on LJ land, so here I am.

I don't really think I'll be posting much here, but you never know. At least I hope to check out a few of the remaining active LJ comms, maybe leave comments and maybe even participate a bit. For now I'm eyeing two fic prompt comms and two fic exchanges. I can't guarantee that I'll actually write anything, although in the case of the exchanges I definitely will if I sign up, which looks increasingly likely.

That's about it for now. See you!
Vocês se lembram que uma vez eu indiquei aqui a fic A Dança dos Ventos, escrita pela Andréia Kennen? Agora eu tenho não uma, mas sim duas outras fics da mesma autora para indicar. Ambas são sobre Saint Seiya.

Acordes do Prelúdio Final é uma fic centrada na Saori, mas também aparecem o Aiolia e, de uma forma mais peculiar, o Saga. Já Entre Flores é sobre o Ikki, a Esmeralda e a Ellen. As duas histórias são bem escritas e cheias de sentimentos delicados. Melhor ainda: estas são fics nas quais as personagens femininas de CDZ (que costumam ser tão maltratadas ou simplesmente ignoradas pela maioria dos escritores) são retratadas com muito carinho e respeito.

Fica até difícil escolher uma só entre essas duas fics. Na dúvida, leiam as duas! Vocês vão gostar delas.

Femgenficathon

Today is the last day to claim prompts at femgenficathon. This is a multifandom fest for female-centric gen fics. I'd love to participate, but I'm not sure I should. There's a difference between participating in a challenge with no deadline and no commitments, and signing up for something with a fixed due date.

From what I've read, there aren't penalties for authors who default. But why sign up when one isn't sure she'll be able to complete a fic by September 8th (the last day for posting fics)? Well, I have some hours left for thinking about it. Regardless of my decision, I encourage my f-list to go to femgenficathon and claim a prompt. Actually, each person can claim up to 3 prompts, and you don't even have to use them if you have another idea. It would be nice to see more anime and manga fandoms represented in this fest, and I know there are several anime/manga fans in my f-list. ;)

Opera Fic

I just found a fantastic community: operafic. Isn't it a fantastic idea?

I know many people don't like opera, but maybe fandom and communities like this could raise the interest in opera and make people forget their biases. I am this hopeful!

I don't have any ideas at the moment for writing my own opera fics, but I'll gladly read anything I can find. I'll watch operafic and see if the members post new fics or recs.

Edited several years later: Aww, the community has been closed. :(
Amigos, terminei de ler ainda agora uma fanfic muito boa chamada A Dança dos Ventos. A escritora se chama Andréia Kennen. A história é de Saint Seiya, tem 6 capítulos e é uma fic gen. Os personagens principais são o Kanon e o Ikki, mas outros personagens aparecem também. Para quem sente falta de fics de aventura e lutas, é um prato cheio.

A grande coincidência é que essa história foi escrita para aquele mesmo amigo oculto de fanfics daquela fic de HP que indicamos outro dia, lembram? Aquela fic fantástica com o Neville e a Bellatrix, To Break a Good Man. Vou começar a olhar as fanfics daquela comunidade com mais atenção e carinho, porque se todas forem nesse nível, nós teremos muitas coisas boas para ler.
