I laughed SO FUCKING HARD - I am crying here, folks, crying.

Crowley tries to write fanfiction and then it devolves into a hilarious round robin.

The opening is gold, and so is the entire back half. There's a slow bit right after the beginning, but believe me, it is totally worth hanging in. The character voices are spot on, and omg, I am still crying thinking of some of the lines. I just typed half the fic into a chat window with my wife. So much awesome, my face hurts from the smiling.

An apology from SF3

 The board of SF3, WisCon's parent organization, has posted the following apology on their blog:
An Apology

The SF3 Board extends heartfelt apologies to those who have been harassed at WisCon, to those who feel unsafe at WisCon, to the ConCom, and to our wider community, for letting you down. We regret allowing Rose Lemberg’s report to languish. We are writing this statement as prompted by Rose Lemberg’s liaisons, Saira Ali and Alex Dally MacFarlane (link: http://phi.dreamwidth.org/331071.html). While this statement is being written per their request, the SF3 board would like to emphasize that it is genuinely sorry for Rose Lemberg’s pain being perpetuated by a seemingly unending tangle of bureaucratic lapses. WisCon co-chairs change from year to year, as do department heads such as Safety, but the makeup of the SF3 Executive Board is more static, as the turnover is staggered. Our board is organized so as to provide continuity and stability, and we recognize that our positions make us uniquely culpable for having failed to monitor and intervene in the communications with individuals who reported harassment at WisCon.

We failed to see that our process was a flawed and porous system that allowed reports to get misplaced. Since the SF3 Board officially appoints the chair(s) of WisCon, which in turn is technically a committee within the larger organization of SF3, the board acknowledges that it is ultimately our responsibility to oversee issues of safety that affect all WisCon attendees.

We will focus on our accountability and responsibilities as an institution and be vigilant in the future to try and prevent such events from happening again.

A number of valued concom members have chosen to resign over the summer, including several past WisCon chairs. In addition, several other former chairs have decided to significantly reduce their work on WisCon. We recognize that chairing Wiscon is a difficult task, even with co-chairs, and that the responsibilities of chair and other high-responsibility positions need to be rethought. The concom is currently examining itself, and has begun work to replenish committee positions and to provide training or apprenticeships for prospective chairs.

You may leave comments on SF3's blog post or send them via email to the SF3 Corresponding Secretary.

Since the military is not set up to contain Dreadnaughts, the German prisoners are tied up securely and dragged off to Magister Angle's tower where they can rot in his magical prison. Only though a bizarre sequence of events could anything go horribly wrong.

Interesting bit of trivia: the Dreadnaught who got away has luck powers.

I feel kind of ridiculous tagging this story with six fandoms, but, you know. Marvel. What can you do, eh?

And the Ashes Will Scatter (4625 words) by Sineala
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Marvel 616, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers (Comics), New Avengers (Comics), Guardians of the Galaxy (Comics), Guardians of the Galaxy (Movies)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Peter Quill & Tony Stark, Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Characters: Peter Quill, Tony Stark
Additional Tags: Cap-Ironman Bingo, Marvel 616/MCU Crossover, Angst, Pre-Slash, Ambiguous Slash, Pining, The Illuminati (Marvel), Infinity Gems, Dimension Travel
Summary: After the mindwipe is discovered and the Time Gem sends the Avengers into the future, Tony returns alone to the present. But it's not his present that he returns to. He finds himself among the Guardians of the Galaxy once again -- but these Guardians have no idea who Tony is. Maybe that's exactly what he needs right now.

So, uh, there's that.

My current fanfiction goal appears to be "make 616 Tony happy." He enjoyed his time in space a lot, I thought, so why not send him back to the Guardians? He'd be happy! Then I thought it would be even more fun to send him to Guardians he'd never met! Whee! I'm not sure he's quite as happy as he could have been, but he's sure happier than he is in canon now.

(I am hoping this is readable without too much 616 knowledge because Tony does explain most of it, but I guess I'll have to see.)

Things &c.

Work is... I don't know what. Long hours, but I'm getting tons done, and I feel extremely accomplished at the end of each day. Should die down some after tomorrow and considerably after next Monday.

Fannishly, I'm finishing up my SPN rewatch (apparently this is a thing? I'm going to rewatch it every summer before the new season starts?). I'm on 8.11 now, and going through 5-6 eps a night while I work (I'm at my desk until 10pm usually). I need to put up a post about the S10 tagathon on [community profile] fandom_on_dw and [community profile] fandomcalendar.

It's almost time to start sign-ups for the [community profile] ante_up_losers exchange, too. May work on that a little this weekend, if SPN and work don't eat my entire weekend.

I'm on my own in my work city this weekend, so I should have lots of time (I couldn't get any of my siblings to come visit me, wah) to watch SPN and finish up my team free will big bang (just a little angst and one more porn scene to go). Then on to my femslash exchange fic.

That's kinda it for right now. My life is a bit of a work-SPN-work-SPN cycle. :|

Days put to no good use: 1, 4, 6, 13, 20, 22 and 23. Even granting a day off a week, that's three days wasted. Although actually there was at least one SFBC book in there. And 2 for RT. Let's add those...

               T        F     M     Mu     
JDN      23      11   12
SFBC     1                1
RT          2        2 
Total    26      13    13
