Bingo check-in!

I am a slacker once again! I missed posting for Comment fic on Friday, even though my calendar reminded me *hangs head*, but our fearless leader posted a flash challenge and I got caught in a net up writing a fic for that and it completely slipped my mind.

Anyway, before I also forget to post a final reminder for this month's Bingo Challenge... (because yes, I have also forgotten to post the 'how are you going?' reminders I had planned)... I am now here to see how you got on!



So, a bunch of you have posted your results already, which is FANTASTIC! As long as you've tagged it with 'challenge: bingo' I will pick up on it and add you into the grand total word/graphic count, AND put you on the list for rewards, just so you know! If you didn't tag, perhaps you could go back and add one in if you have time, otherwise you could always link me here in comments to wherever else your entries may be posted. Thank you!

As for those who are still working on their Bingo cards, how are you doing? Think you can get it posted before midnight on the 30th, EST? If so, go ahead and post! If you're close but are worried you might not make it, let me know here and I'll see if there's enough demand for a small extension. Good luck everyone! ;-)

Monday Madness: Recs!

And it's that time of the month again!



So, rec me anything you like, from any fandom, any genre, on any subject, but how about this time we go with...

Short Fic


Anything you've read recently that packed a punch in a few words, be it drabble, double-, or even triple-drabble, or maybe a slightly longer comment-fic size. In fact, anything up to about 1500 words sounds good to me. Rec away!
