Is there something coming out soon that you're looking forward to squeeing over with fannish delight? Is there a new episode or season starting up that you can't wait for. Grab a cup of coffee and tell us all about it!

Share the squee with me. What are you looking forward to? What has people so pretty you'll swoon? What's coming back that left you on the edge of your seat? I wanna know.

I run comment_fic and my mind spins as I try to make it more user friendly, but there are just so many prompts that's nearly impossible.

So smaller comm might be something better for me, at least writing wise, and maybe give me an idea on how to whip comment_fic into shape.

Right, I now remember seeing your name there. I don't mean to seem rude or depreciating, but it's a real pity the prompts on comment_fic aren't as accessible. There are so many great ones. Quite often, when I have an idea, I want a quick way to search for a fitting prompt that will give the idea a direction. I save the ones I like on Evernote, when I come across them.

Plus, there's also a user who now and again prompts my favourite character. I'd love to write all of them, but I don't want to slog through every post, or even 20 pages of LJ search. (I did that once to make a list of prompts I missed.) But with the amount of prompts on comment_fic, I really have no idea how find an easy enough system (without, you know, putting in superhuman effort in archiving them all first).

Maybe you could talk to oneill, who runs the comm now, or secretstaircase, who collects the prompts on pinboard. They seem to have a system running that allows them even to collect new prompts on old threats, if somebody revisits them. In any case, I hope it gives you perspective.

I have about 6-8 people working on collecting lonely prompts from the horrible delicious account and all the way back to 2008 at the comm itself. That's literally thousands of prompts. I think they've gotten a couple of years done, but like I said...slow going.

My personal way of collecting prompts I like it by bookmarking the thread. But I can't make people do that to make it easier for them.

eta: I was going to wait until February to start at fic_promptly, but as I was looking at the lonely prompts, I saw some that I really liked...so I guess I'm joining in now.

Yeah, I've slogged through the delicious account myself. So many prompts @_@

Say, are you the one in charge of the 1mw AO3 Collection? I was wondering if there was a special collection for the Cry Me a River fills?

Happy writing!

I do set them up. As of right now, there isn't a subcollection for Cry Me a River. I usually make them if K or H ask.
