ForbiddenFiction.com has launched an Indie Go Go page.

Who they are, in their words:

ForbiddenFiction.com is a start-up publishing venture devoted to writing that breaks the boundaries of original erotic fiction. We will be publishing stories which combine intense sexuality with quality writing. We plan to have fiction in many different genres – contemporary, mystery, historical, western, science fiction, fantasy, romance, adventure, thriller, and horror. Our stories will cover a range of sexual practices, gender and orientations.

In particular, we are interested in expanding the world of publishing in several ways: 1) Freedom of content, 2) Diversity of format, and 3) Community of readers.

Freedom of creative speech is one of our primary focuses. Most traditional publishers have restrictions on content in ways that have limited the expression of erotic storytelling. For example, mainstream publishers usually refuse or restrict any erotic content, and erotic publishers usually limit which themes or types of sexuality can be presented. Most limit content either to avoid "offending" potential customers or because of personal objections to the material. Instead of these approaches, ForbiddenFiction.com will use content labels (like ingredient labels on food) to allow writers creative expression and the readers to make their own choices of what they do or do not want to read.

Obviously, though, they will run into a lot of problems. For one thing, this will be a business, and any business needs start-up money. But due to the nature of ForbiddenFiction.com, they will need a little more help:

To put it simply, we need to make sure that all of the legal, bureaucratic and other documentation is in place if we run into a legal challenge. We need a lawyer who will set up our documents to avoid any loopholes that could be used to shut us down and be on retainer to meet any legal challenges. The estimated cost of the set-up paperwork alone is five to ten thousand dollars. Then we will need all the filing fees and usual start up costs for a website publishing venture.

I seriously wish I was joking, but I'm not.

Anyway, Life Update for anyone who actually cares to know why I've been so flaky lately.

Moving, school, new fandom, writing challenges, comms, and sick. )

tl;dr - I'm moving/moved across Los Angeles, starting college (Santa Monica), job hunting (if anyone knows someone who's willing to pay for a writer of any kind for any thing, let me know!), I've dived into the Sherlock fandom gleefully, I'm swamped in writing and will need to write a minimum 160,000 words for writing challenges (100k for Supernova, 50k for NaNoWriMo, and 10k for Journey Story), I am restarting my old research comm, hoping to start a new comm solely for the purposes of complaining about writing, but through all this I'm rather sick at the moment either from fungus or a 23-day period. Yup, that's my life.

Oh! If anyone wants to co-mod that research comm, either on LJ or DW, and/or manage a Delicious account, please contact me. I've been having trouble getting this thing off the ground and would love some help. May also need some promo banners, if you're interested, for when we do get this baby going.

Many of you have probably gotten the Arthur and Merlin shimeji and are currently experiencing a sudden spike in your procrastination drop in your productivity as they run around your screen, multiply like crazy from shagging like bunnies, and generally cause mayhem and look cute while doing it.

Their creator [livejournal.com profile] jissai1988 is a vain, vain bastard and the more attention, praise, and general positive feedback he gets, the more inclined he is to make other Shimeji (I know for a fact Gwen and Gwaine are already in the works. Gwen is not amused by Gwaine's drinking.)

So, anything positive to say about the Arthur and Merlin shimeji? Any cute pictures, fun moments, ect to share? Any funny screenshots? Any shimeji invasions after turning your back on your screen for only a few moments?"

Basically, if you're having fun with them, tell us, show us, or otherwise share with everyone! Your own screenshots or others, then come share in the cuteness!

That last link leads back to this post, so if you repost this it'll lead back here with minimum fuss. :)

The UK Government has just launched the new e-petitions system, offering to debate legislation in Parliament if a petition gets 100,000 signatures.

If you are in the UK and believe that marriage should be equally available to all, regardless of gender or orientation, please consider signing this petition:


Also, if you could help pass it on or help it go viral in any way, that would be great.

There is a Facebook page just launched, to share with friends.

And also you can spread the word on Twitter if you wish.

Anyone got any ideas about how to help it go viral and get the 100,000 signatures?

I'm a Yank so I don't think I'd be allowed to partake in this, but any Brits or whoever else might be allowed to sign this petition and add to its numbers, please go right on ahead and do so. :) And Brit or not, repost this to your journal so as to get the attention of as many Brits as possible! :D

So, my friend Jissai ([livejournal.com profile] jissai1988) is making shimeji. Unfortunately, he sometimes has ups and downs, and worries that if someone isn't pestering him or kicking his ass to make them, he'll get numb again, stop caring about anything, and forget all about them. So, I am asking YOU dear flisters to help me bug and pester him into giving us Shimeji!

You can send Jissai a message or contact him on Yahoo Messenger at jissai_kun (or e-mail him), and on Google/Gchat he is jissaivan. He says to be, ah, rough:

tell them to be pushy and mean as fucking possible : p

So go! Pester [livejournal.com profile] jissai1988 into starting and finishing a Merlin shimeji!

And repost this to your own journal so your flist can help bug him into making this for us! :)

ETA: He's made the first one! (Now just 45 more to go...)

My friend [livejournal.com profile] arithilim has been out of touch with fandom for a while due to real life, and needs to get back in. To start off, she did a bit of a meme. This is her post:

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] thisissirius. Hitting a wall in everything I'm working on, so hoping this might kickstart some goingson.

pick one of my icons and i will write comment!fic based on the description


give me a fandom, character/pairing/moresome, and a prompt. i will write you something in return.

Her post can be found here, so go show her some love, and friend her! :)

So, there are lot of research comms/sites out there, but what I want to start is a resource comm - a place to pool and find resources on a topic you're writing about. An user can post saying they're writing about a war, event, time, place, ect., and people will offer recs and resources to help them out.

The goal is to have both an LJ comm and a Delicious account tagging posts and individual resources. I'm currently trying to work out/set-up a tagging system for both (on LJ, archive links will only be to tags and posts, while on Delicious I'm hoping to eventually tag individual resources/links).

This will involve a.) lots of planning and setting up/making tags, and b.) tagging of things, and c.) managing information in general as it comes in. At the moment I'm only looking for someone to help me set up on LJ, and I will later ask for some more help from others to help with the Delicious thing, as that would involve tagging each individual resource/website/file/whatever (and maybe even going through the sites/links to see what they have to offer to best tag them for future writers).

Drop a line here if you're interested in either helping right now with the LJ bit or helping out later with the Delicious thing, and I'll let you know more about it.

(And, Flist members, this post is not locked, so if you know someone who might be interested in this let them know and feel free to link back here! :D)

Title: Primogeniture
Summary: Merlin is happy to dedicate his life and soul to Arthur when he comes to Camelot, even though he knows the dragon is wrong, and Arthur will never be king. How can he be, when he is the second son?
Rating: R
Word Count: 6400
Pairings/Character: Arthur/Merlin, OMC
Warnings/Content: mentions of violence, character death, posted in a sleep-deprived state
Beta: none
Notes: I basically went on hiatus and lived under a rock for the last few weeks, from AP's to prom to finals, to my 18th birthday two weeks ago (yay, now everything I've been doing for over the last half-decade is actually legal...except for some of the intoxicating measures, but no one cares about those), to my graduation last week (holy shit I'm a college student now! o.O). I doubt many of you are all that interested so I won't bore you with the details, but suffice it to say I was busy, busy, busy with RL! But, now that's all over with! And now I have summer to look forward to! Which isn't much because I'll probably end up working, anyway, but still. It's the thought the counts. :P

Anyway, I'm going to slowly ease back into posting and updating fics at my regular rate, so this will hopefully get me started.
