For More Joy Day, I decided to write a gift fic because that's where my strengths lie. So I wrote another fic about Nora, an original character learning the ropes as the newest member of the SGA family.

This fic is for two lovely ladies, [ profile] darkmoore and [ profile] popkin16. They're both so supportive of my writing, which I appreciate more than I can say, and Popkin leaves such amazing comments every single time she reads one of my fics. Darkmoore and I converse almost daily and have had many discussions in particular about the AMTDI trope, so I wanted to put something in there about that for her. ::fistbump of solidarity::

Spread the joy, ladies! And have a wonderful day!

Title: Emergency Protocols
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Series: Learning the Ropes
Pairing: Nora (OC)/Amelia
Characters: Nora (OC), Amelia, Lorne, Woolsey, Keller, Teldy, Ronon, Rodney
Warnings: not a fun, light-hearted treatment of AMTDI (only referenced, nothing on screen)

Summary: Nora is still learning her new job on Atlantis, and that includes how to respond to offworld emergencies.

So, sometimes I make these title cards for my fics. Mostly the movie fusions, I don't know why. But for More Joy Day (today!) I made one for [ profile] nagi_schwarz for her Blood and Water series.

If you haven't read any of it, you really should. It's an SGA AU series where both John and Evan have mafia backgrounds that they've tried to escape from. There's some dark stuff in here, and Evan takes his organizational skills to scary new levels, but it's also very, very hopeful because they don't have to be defined by their pasts, or their parentage.

Bonus points for working in a really amazing three-way relationship in such a realistic way. It's so good, y'all!

Another reminder that [ profile] sdwolfpup's More Joy Day is tomorrow.

Signal boosting, because this is important.

There are some things happening around LJ, friends, that I thought I'd bring to your attention if you didn't already know.

[ profile] romancingmcshep is kicking off the annual John and Rodney Romance Fest, for those of you in the SGA fandom. Right now the call for prompts has gone out. Cut-off for prompts is January 16th and fics are due the end of February. You DON'T need to use a prompt for your story, but you do need to make sure it has a happy ending. Cause romance, ya'll. ::grins::

[ profile] picfor1000 is underway with sign-ups. You have till the end of the month to let the mod know you want to participate, and stories are due March 31st. This is for any fandom, or original fic. Once sign-ups are done, you'll be assigned a picture and you have to use that as a jumping-off point for your fic, even if the finished product has almost nothing to do with the picture. It's all about inspiration. Oh, and the finished work has to be exactly 1k.

[ profile] sdwolfpup will be continuing to host the annual More Joy Day. There's a poll up regarding dates, but it looks like the popular vote wants posting to be on January 20th, the date of the US presidential inauguration. We'll definitely need some joy that day. More Joy Day is pretty simple. You do something nice for someone, be they friend or complete stranger. For me this usually means gifting a fic, but it can also mean paying for the person behind you in line for coffee, or holding open a door, or telling someone that you think they're a great person. Spread the joy!

[ profile] logansgirl_2001 is going to be starting a regular Pride Post on Monday. This will be a place to talk about good things you've done, seen, watched, etc. Promoting good feelings and pride in our own accomplishments is a very worthy cause.

For general writerly support, I'd recommend [ profile] ushobwri. Every Friday is a workshop day, where you can share snippets of your work for feedback. And coming up in February is the annual WIPed Into Shape event, where the goal is to motivate each other to get at least one WIP finished. Or at least make progress towards that goal, because that's a pretty laid-back comm. All the support, none of the pressure. ::grins::

And if you're looking for prompts to help kick your muse into gear, may I suggest:

[ profile] fan_flashworks

[ profile] story_works

[ profile] fffc

Let me know if there's something good that I missed!

I posted two new fics this week, friends! And I'm pretty proud of both of them.

Title: Make It Real
Posted For: Winter in Hawaii Exchange
Fandom: Hawaii Five-0
Pairing: McDanno
Warnings: hurt/comfort, emotional hurt/comfort

Summary: When Steve gets injured on a case, his memory gets a little muddled. When he slips-up will it ruin things forever, or will he finally get everything he's been wishing for?

Title: Everything He Wanted
Posted For: [ profile] popkin16 on More Joy Day
Fandom: Hawaii Five-0
Pairing: McDanno
Warnings: emotional hurt/comfort

Summary: Danny was a Guide who thought he could never bond, until he was called in to help a Sentinel in distress. And then everything changed.

Hello, friends!

Today is More Joy Day! Woo hoo! What does this mean? It means a day where you can bring some joy to someone's life, in ways big or small.

Here, check out some ideas I swiped from [ profile] sdwolfpup:

- Buy the person in line behind you a cup of coffee
- Let someone cut in front of you at the grocery store
- Give your neighbor some flowers
- Call a family member to say hi
- Complement a co-worker or student
- Post a pic-spam of silly faces on Tumblr
- Tweet your favorite jokes

Last year I wrote a couple of stories and made a photo manip. This year I'm desperately trying to finish a fic for the end of the day. ::grins:: But as you can see from the list above, the joy you bring doesn't have to be fannish. Just a random act of kindness to brighten someone's day.

So get out there and spread the joy, friends!

ETA: I finally finished and posted the fic I wrote for [ profile] popkin16! It's called Everything He Wanted, if you're interested.

It's here! It's here! The beautiful necklace that [ profile] ride_4ever made me for More Joy Day was waiting in my mailbox when I got home from work. Lookit, lookit!

Jan15 006

Isn't is beautiful? It's Hatter-themed because Ride got sucked into watching Alice after reading one of my fics. (Is that right? Am I remembering that right?) Well, however it happened, I love my new fannish necklace!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! ::hugs:: I can't get the smile off my face!

Title: Bucky's Gift, for [ profile] taste_is_sweet

Happy More Joy Day, flisters! What? You don't know what that is? Well hurry over and read this post by [ profile] sdwolfpup and you'll find out everything you need.

Since [ profile] ride_4ever is the one who brought this to my attention, my first offering of the day is for her (also because she's made me some Hatter-inspired jewelry, which I absolutely cannot wait to see!):

Friendship. These boys know all about it. ::nods::

Later today I'll also be posting two gift fics, once final edits are done, and I hope to have one more fannish photo thing. I'm spreading the joy today, and I hope you will too!
