OH YEAH! It's that time of year again! Grab your noodles and head over!

It's time to dive into new fandoms with the 1_million_words POOL PARTY!

Have you been dreaming about it? Making plans? I have!!!

Here's the official invite:

Come on over, jump in the pool and cool off.
For the month of July, we want you to play
in somebody else's pool. You'll be
splashing around in fandoms you've
never played in before.

1000 words or 10 graphics in any fandom you
haven't written or graphic'd in before.

The pool you play in is up to you. Just pick
one you haven't dipped a toe into yet.


Do drabbles in 10 fandoms, put together a fanvid in one fandom, just make it new to you!

Comments? Questions? Word wars? Let me know.

What are you all thinking? Throw out some fandoms and possibly inspire others!

Dunno if its 'new' to me...as Star Trek was one of the earliest things I tackled (I had done some other bit writing before then, but it was a Star Trek book that made me seriously think 'I can write this'...so I did two fics'.
That said, it was a LONG time ago...and it didn't involve Pike, the Discovery Crew, or new, sexy Spock ;) I've tinkered with new Spock a little in my RP, but I'd like to explore Pike & Spock and Michael some...maybe Pike and Leland...

If anyone is debating writing some Good Omens fic, I'd love to read it. :) Am enjoying that series a lot, but not sure that it's one I'd like to write, myself.

If I have written one fic in a fandom, can I consider it newish enuff for this challenge?

Like Elizabeth and the revirginization?

I won't even make you shave your head.

I just finished binge watching season 2 of Killing Eve and that is definitely a fandom I've never written in and I'm also starting to watch The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina--yet another fandom I've never written in :):)

Looks like you've got a plan!!!
Jul. 1st, 2019 11:14 pm (UTC)
Hmm... what have I been watching lately that's new to me? I shall give it some thought, and probably look at icons as writing in familiar places seems beyond me these days so I'm not sure a new fandom would help much! But icons *nods*, I can do!

I could do that for Jane the Virgin!

I might try to tackle something from the early seasons of "The Wire" and kill 2 birds with one stone as I actually do want to binge watch the series at some point.

If anybody is looking for a new-to-them fandom, I'd like to suggest "Life" which was on NBC in 2007-08 and has some really fun characters to play with. Or if you want to go darker and naughtier, there's always HBO's "OZ".

I so freaking LOVED Life. Was so sad when it was cancelled. There was so much I wanted to know!!!!

With all the orders I'm having to crochet I haven't been on LJ a lot lately and missed this post about the Pool Party!

I'm going to take a break from the big bang fic I'm writing so I can do something for this. After all I've been doing this since 2014 I can't stop now!

Now all I need to do is come up with a fandom I haven't played in.... that's going to be a tough one!

You got this!! Once you find a fandom that is! ;)
