LJ meme!

ash48: (Now & Then)
1. How long have you been on LiveJournal?

*checks profile* Since August 2006 (dammit!! I missed my 10th anniversary!)

2. How did you come up with your online name(s)? Does it have any special meaning?

The very first SPN on-line account I created was for FF.net and I had NO idea what to call myself so I picked my daughter's name and her birth date (Ash8). Then I wanted to create an account for LJ and "Ash8" was taken so I then took her birth month and birth date and mashed it up and Ash48 was made. On YouTube "Ash48" was taken so I added her birth year and Ash4897 was born. My poor daughter!

3. Why did you join LJ?

It was where it was all happening back in 2006 - before Tumblr and Twitter and whatever else is out there now. It had all the fic, meta, pics, community... It was amazing. *g*

4. What do you like about it? What keeps you active here?

I love the conversation format. It beats all other fandom social sites for that. Twitter is great for small, instant chat but misinterpretations are rife. Tumblr is just damn messy (but pretty!). I am less active than I used to be but I stay active because I love the people I've met here. I feel a greater connection to fellow fans more than I do anywhere else. I love the interaction, and the flexibility of formatting.

5. Do you remember what made you add me as a friend? If so, what was it?

Ah, well. I took this from a few mutual friends so I won't answer this specifically. I will say that the reason I added YOU is because I either - thought you were awesome and I felt like we shared something in common or you friended me and I like making mutual friends. :)

6. Where in the world do you live? (Feel free to be as specific/unspecific as you'd like, lol. I just like seeing how far spread my online friends are :))

I live in Perth, Western Australia. In a lovely little suburb called Bassendean. :)

7. Tell me one random/happy/good thing about your day! :)

I am now riding my bike to work every day! This is huge for me because I've never done this before. I love it! :)

[livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte has designed a much needed fandom Love Meme for the many in fandom hurting right now.

From Cherie's LJ: Hey, guys. As you by now surely know, it's been a really emotional weekend for the Supernatural fandom. One of our boys is hurting, and all of us have been pulling together, sending him our love and wishing him the best.

While my heart is broken for Jared right now, the thing that has struck me most over the last 24 hours has been the outpouring of love and support that I've seen circulating. It's been really beautiful and inspiring.


I agree!

Go leave some love and accept some love. *hugs*
ash48: (Pencils)
I haven't had a chance to wish you all the best for the season. So ALL THE BEST FOR THE SEASON! <3

It's a strange time of year. Happy for some, sad for some. I consider myself lucky as it's mostly a happy time of year for me. And I am truly grateful for that. It's a little stressful (family stuff can sometimes be fraught) but it's small beans compared to what many have to endure. I hope you ALL had a happy time.

Something I've done for a few years is the Vidding Meme. It's a nice way to reflect on the years' fanworks. I don't want to break tradition so here's what I got up to in 2014:

Vids from 2014 )

Happy New Year to you all! I hope 2015 is a happy and successful year for each of you.. Thanks for being part of my fandom life. It means a lot to me. *hugs* to all!

1. Sam (though really SamnDean)
2. Zachariah
3. Alistair
4. Ties: Zach, Lucifer, Alistair and Uriel (curious how my fave "evils" and angels. Something screwy there me thinks. Cool tho).
5. S1/S2
6. What is and What Should Never Be (still!). Though Mystery Spot and the Xmas one is RIGHT UP THERE! (damn you Carver!). Oh and In My Time of Dying (actually I think THAT one might be my all time fave).
7. Cas/Hannah (they are too a thing). Sam/Cara (Sex and Violence). Though really there's only Sam/Dean.
8. LUCIFER! (did Michael ever really feature?)
9. Metatron
10. Kim Rhodes
11. So many. Too many. Off the top of my head: Dean: "Well, we know a little about a lot of things. Just enough to make us dangerous".

Pimp!

I agree with [livejournal.com profile] runedgirl, that after hearing about the loss of Robin Williams today "it seems like a good time for everyone to remind themselves of why we're all important".

So, some positive things about me.

* I'm a happy person. I try and see the bright side of life.
* I like to try new things.
* If I say I'll do something I will do everything within my power to make sure I do it.
* I'm organised (I think that's a positive thing!)
* I'm resilient.

It's weird how hard it is to find nice things to say about yourself.

I tag everyone who hasn't done it yet!!
ash48: (Smish the Flist)
You know I love you...

I feel bad that I did have a chance to participate in the awesome love meme. Truth is, this is the first time I've been able to actually sit down at the computer (for any length of time) and I am truly overwhelmed with how many people I'd like to leave love comments to. Which is ALL OF YOU! But I know I just won't have the time.../o\ I know it's a cop out, and I'm really sorry. But please know that you all mean so much to me. From those who lurk to those who take the time to engage with me often. I appreciate the talent, the passion, the intelligence and the love that all of you share. Thank you. <33

I am now back from my family escapade. It was full of drama, but I seem to have survived unscathed. In fact, I had a wonderful time. I have missed fandom though - especially when there's been so much going on! I hope to be around again soon (I wanna chat about those spoilers! ;D)

Calling all fandom! To celebrate the SPN Fandom Day of Love, we are hosting a FANDOM LOVE MEME!


[source]


Think about what makes your Supernatural heart tick, and put those reasons out in the open. Let loose, express your love and your glee and your secret SPN-related delights. This means both canon and fandom.

details... )

For me...

I love the way fans share STUFF so we can all happy and come together as a community to celebrate a show we love. Even if we can't agree about certain story lines or ships or characters we can appreciate the work others do and come together to celebrate that.

I love that fans help fans when they are in need. I love that a site like SuperWiki exists and when it needed funds recently we raised DOUBLE the amount that was being asked in such a short time. I love that people will connect on the specific things they love in the show (be it Sam, Dean, Cas, bros, Team Free Will, porn, tentacles...) and share that love in that corner, while embracing other stuff as well.

I love the god damn PASSION we communicate with when discussing the show. I love how these characters are so REAL that we defend them as they would be personally hurt if they heard you SAYING THAT about them.

I love that people can write fix it fics when canon isn't doing what you want and can DRAW and create the most amazing works to make you fantasise, imagine, drool, die, admire and just revel in everything you love about the show.

I love that fandoms are created within the fandom (yes I'm talking about [livejournal.com profile] rlbivob !).

I love that my flist are the most AMAZING group of people who are talented and warm and take the time to engage with me.

I love how fandom makes me feel part of something that feels important - something that's passionate and relevant. I love how it heals me when I'm feeling down, keeps me company when I'm feeling lonely and makes me laugh when I need picking up.

I love that it's a family and that our Show represents all the things that fandom is about is about (for me).

I'm away from LJ for a day and I come back and there was a randomness posting day?! And I missed it?!! Boooooo!...though also YAAAY! Awesomesauce because lots of posts!! \o/ though...boooo, no way I'm going to have a chance to comment because I'm with my family (on the other side of the country) and spending time on the computer instead of with them is probably not a great thing. But then again...you guys are family too!

LJ is still wonderful. Even with Twitter and tumblr I think this is the best place to have really good discussions and get to know people. And make detailed posts and feel like a part of a real community. *hearts* the LJ community.

I've been thinking we might need an "active" LJ user friending thingy because I think there are more and more fans (re) discovering LJ and people might want to know who's out there. Maybe?

*hugs* ya all.

The Days:
1. Something old
2. Something new - talk about a new fanwork of yours!
3. Something you made for someone else
4. Something you made just for yourself
5. Something for a large fandom/pairing/character.
6. Something for a small fandom/pairing/character
7. Something you're just really proud of

I probably should pick a vid (hee... I do have some I'm proud of!) but I'm going to go with something that I am really proud to be part of.

Just over three years ago I proposed the idea of having a community where hurt!Sam and hurt!Jared fics could be archived. The response and support was amazing. From that [livejournal.com profile] spn_littlebro was born. A community that recs and archives fan works that feature hurt!Sam or hurt!Jared ('cause some of us a suckers for that stuff! *g*).

This community only exists because of all the people involved in getting it there. From the initial brainstorming sessions to the wonderful mods who have contributed to it over the years.

There are now over 1000 fics listed on the site. It has 500 members and is watched by over 600 people. We have a Delicious account, ff.net community and tumblr. There's also a monthly newsletter reccing all the awesome stuff fans make. So much of this is due to [livejournal.com profile] cherry916, [livejournal.com profile] harrigan and [livejournal.com profile] el1ie who have been instrumental in setting it up and continue to help it all run so smoothly. We've had many wonderful mods over the years helping out. Currently [livejournal.com profile] ayane42,[livejournal.com profile] jessm78 and [livejournal.com profile] reggie11 are helping search out all the awesome fan works to share with members and help keep it ticking over.

So yeah. Something that started as a way of having a place to go so I could find all the fics I wanted to read has ended up being a place that I consider an online home. A place I love and a place I love being part of. It's also something I will look back on and know that I will be proud that it exists. *wipes a tear* (haha! I think I got emotional there for a moment...must be the wine..!)

The end! That was a fun meme. :)

I would really love to have the time to make more vids for other fandoms. Perhaps when my obsession with SPN fades (and why hasn't that happened yet?!?) I might be drawn to all the other wonderful shows that would be SO viddable (Hannibal, Orphan Black, The Musketeers, Game of Thrones to name a few).

I have actually made 2 non SPN vids. One for GI Joe, Rise of the Cobra (I know - weird choice but I wanted to try my hand at an action film) and this one for Misfits...

Such a great show. This is a snap shot of the characters and their connections to each other... )

Ha, well. Pretty much everything I've made is for the SPN fandom - which I figure is a large fandom. I've made nearly 100 vids (holy crap, how did that happen!) so picking one for this was preeeetty tricky. I went with one I made in 2009 and it's still a fav of mine. No quite sure what it is...maybe it's 'cause it's Dolly Parton. :)

Just another day in the office )

I really had to think about this one. I love making vids and other fannish stuff but I can't think of anything I've made purely for myself. Then I thought of something that I am in the middle of putting together. One day I might actually finish putting it...

scrapbooking is not something I am good at, but I want all these wonderful things together somehow... )

I've made a few vids for other people through [livejournal.com profile] fandomaid and as gifts. It's usually a good way to challenge myself because I'm usually given songs or ideas I wouldn't have thought of. And I really enjoy making stuff for other people. *g* I didn't know which one to pick for this so I chose a short, action, multi-character one (though lots of S&D).

I Go To Work )


Oh and I thought I might just throw in the other one that [livejournal.com profile] serenada asked to make to Mr Boombastic. Because....DEEEAAAANNNNN..... He was so happy and flirty and dorky back then... LOOK AT HIS FFFAAACCCEEE! <3

I'm not sure if "new" means something recent or something currently being worked on. So, I've gone for both.

My most recent work was We're Never (always!) Getting Back Together. It's kind of weird because whereas the reaction on LJ was positive (and wonderful! thank you), it's really struggling with views on You Tube. Not that I worry about view count, but it seems strange in comparison. And it's also weird that I made that because I KNEW at some point the brothers would get back together, but I didn't count on it being the way that it happened (or...*head scratch* didn't happen). So I'm still holding out for them really getting back together. :))

maybe you guys can help me with what I should do next...? )

I've been missing LJ and posting stuff so I thought I'd join in on the Seven Day of Self Promotion. Heck. Why not. :)
