I've been busy being sick all weekend and almost missed claims entirely, so thank you for the reminder, bb!

Dean/Cas ain't the only game in town ... ;)

150+ summaries?? DID YOU SEE THAT? Holy shit. Feels like the whole of tumblr has tumbled onto LJ.
cassiopeia7: Dean&Sam: Brotherscassiopeia7 on August 19th, 2013 09:48 pm (UTC)
150? Wow! The list didn't seem that long to me, but then again, I automatically tuned out any summary that contained the "d" word (and I don't mean "Dean") so probably missed quite a few.

Ah, c'est la vie . . .
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 19th, 2013 10:27 pm (UTC)
I tuned out every one that totally neglected Sam, and that cut my potential list considerably. I'm always willing to give a ship its due, but I have to tread verrrrrry lightly on this one. You know why. After a fair amount of debate -- because you KNOW how I hate to say "no" to things -- I decided to spend my energies elsewhere.

This line kinda did it for me: "If there are still unclaimed fics this time tomorrow, artists will be welcome to make a secondary claim if they so choose! (If your fic falls into this category, don't despair! We always have more writers than artists, it's not you, it's that artist over there in the corner who decided they didn't want to sign up this year.)"

Sure. It's all our faults. Mmmhmm.
cassiopeia7: Dean: what the fucking fuck?cassiopeia7 on August 19th, 2013 10:41 pm (UTC)
I'm not surprised you didn't find much Sam over there -- the poor guy tends to get "disappeared" from a lot of D/C stories.

We always have more writers than artists, it's not you, it's that artist over there in the corner who decided they didn't want to sign up this year.

Oh, fuck them. Seriously, fuck them. (And guess which artist won't be signing up next year?)

Gonna reply with a PM, cuz I'm getting soooo rannnty...

DCBB gets better every year, lol.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 20th, 2013 11:41 am (UTC)
Heh! I have nothing against D/C per se; I wanted to make a claim! But as I saw stuff unfold, I was like "naaaaaahhhhh, not gonna." They've got plenty of participants, anyway. It's just not the comm for me.

Yay, fandom wank! \0/!
salty_catfish on August 20th, 2013 11:47 am (UTC)
Nah, I have nothing against the ship either but the modding there is definitely special. Did you see the response to scarlet's feedback?
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 20th, 2013 12:18 pm (UTC)
Oh, wow, no. What'd they say to scarlet? Where is this feedback?
salty_catfish on August 20th, 2013 12:20 pm (UTC)
It was about the preview, I was rolling my eyes at the 'you can be glad you're getting one at all!' vibe.
[and they forgot that they gave a longer window last year, eh]

Oh, mods. Way to alienate a substantial portion of fandom. I know of several other artists who won't be participating this year because of the comm's practices. Ah, well. Live and learn? One hopes?

You haven't signed up, have you? I didn't see your name bouncing around there anywhere.
salty_catfish on August 20th, 2013 12:37 pm (UTC)
I can't see these mods learning anything tbh, they seem set on painting the artists as spoilsports and DCBB has been bad about this stuff for years now.

No I didn't, I don't feel up to BBs in general right now :)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 20th, 2013 12:42 pm (UTC)
I hear ya. But I miss your pretty pictures. Have you been posting on Dreamwidth or Tumblr. Or just taking an art break? (I mean, apart from that GORGEOUS series for...the BB, I think? The stormy one. Damn, it was sweet. Your watercolors are like crack to me.
salty_catfish on August 20th, 2013 05:47 pm (UTC)
I'll keep posting on tumblr! I think I'm recharging my SPN batteries a bit, I haven't really drawn a lot for it lately but I still feel some fannish affection for it. Fandom's a bit quiet on the challenge front too, if you don't want to commit to a BB.
Meanwhile half my dash is Pacific Rim and for me it's cyclists I guess, lol. /dashes away
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 20th, 2013 07:47 pm (UTC)
I never got around to seeing Pacific Rim. And cyclists are kinda tasty. \0/

I'm glad you still feel kindly towards ol' SPN. Won't be much longer for it, and it's been a nice homebase for me here on LJ. But no matter what you paint, I'll probably purr all over it. Yep.
Snicksnickfic on August 20th, 2013 03:59 pm (UTC)
I am nosily curious to know what that "d" word is. Death? It's the only one obvious one I can think of... (Is there a lot of deathfic in this year's batch?)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 20th, 2013 04:23 pm (UTC)
Dropped you a PM...
cassiopeia7: Dean: readingcassiopeia7 on August 20th, 2013 04:37 pm (UTC)
I sent a PM before clicking through to Q's LJ, so please ignore the sudden preponderance of PMs in your inbox. :D
(Anonymous) on August 20th, 2013 04:59 pm (UTC)
Now I wonder what we both sent?? Was I right? :D
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 20th, 2013 05:17 pm (UTC)
Oops. That was me on my phone. Fail.
cassiopeia7: Dean: Oh YOU!cassiopeia7 on August 20th, 2013 06:56 pm (UTC)
LOL, InvisiGirl! And yes, I'm 99.9999999% sure that we both sent the same thing. XD
