Just a little Awesome April challenge admin.

Writers, I've linked to all your stories here. Could you check and make sure things are okay? If not let me know. Because I'll be posting the masterlist to [livejournal.com profile] shinyandnew soon and obviously want people to be happy with their listing before I do so.

The very last stories of the Awesome April Challenge have been posted.

First we have a selection of ficlets from [livejournal.com profile] msktrnanny. There's something for everyone in there, and I spent very happy time reading through them all. So go give her some love.

KC's Amazing Ficlet Collection

It seems right somehow the last story is by [livejournal.com profile] randomling. She opened the challenge and she's closing it too.

It's Chris/Joey, and it's just fantastic.

There is No Wrong Side

And that's the end of The Awesome April Challenge.

At the beginning of this challenge I worried that I'd end up filling in for many days. That didn't happen at all.

My target for new popfic words was 3,000 at the beginning of this. We ended up with just over 90,000

We've had 47 stories, both long and short, many many different pairings and threesomes, plus a handful of character centric and gen stories.

All I can say is, thank you! Thank you to the writers, to the people who commented to each story. To every single one of you that's made this challenge so successful. You're all AWESOME!

Now I'm passing on the torch. [livejournal.com profile] raynedanser is hosting the It's Gonna Be May challenge. Keep the flame burning and go join over there too.

As for me, I can stop spamming you all, which I'm sure people will be pleased about. Good timing too as in the last few hours I suspect I'm coming down with a celuitis attack, so I'm off to get the good drugs. Josh, everyone else I owe mail to, I'll get to you asap

[livejournal.com profile] sperrywink has posted her Awesome April story for today.

It's Chris/JC and it's the most amazing AU that I'm going to flail over as soon as I've posted this.

So go! Read, comment and tell her she's fab.

Elegant

There's one more Awesome April to be posted later today, and when I do that I'll post the month round up too :)

One more thing. Back when I started this I had vague thoughts about rolling on if it was a success, but then those thoughts fizzled out. But, I've been asked so, some thoughts about a It's Gonna Be May challenge.

First. I thought it would be good if someone else hosted it. I've loved doing the April challenge, and you've all made me so proud with how you've responded, but I think it would be good to spread the love. Plus, I'm sure everyone is sick of the sight of my name by now.

Second. I think it needs to expand beyond just fic. Offer days when people can sign up for posting icons, or a picspam, anything. Throw it open to crossovers and fanart and song mixes. The whole point of this is to show that the pop fandom is still alive. That good stuff can be posted every day.

I'll happily host all links with the Awesome April Page and I'm a master at wielding the sparkly pimping stick of doom. I know the fans are out there, and I know we could fill another month. For what it's worth, I'll sign.

Saying that. I know it's very short notice and it means someone needs something for tomorrow. But I have faith it could be done. So, anyone want to volunteer?

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] raynedanser has offered to host the It's Gonna Be May challenge! Also, we have volunteers to host for June and August. Man, you guys are fantastic.

Good morning LJ.

I woke up to find that [livejournal.com profile] bubbleforest had posted her Awesome April story for yesterday.

It's AJ/Brian and you know it's going to be fabulous. So go, read and enjoy.

Up the Ante

It's the last day of the challenge *sniffles*

I have a double Awesome April to announce today.

First, [livejournal.com profile] bellamyrose has posted The Gift which is Lance/AJ/Kevin, which is a threesome of win and love!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] raynedanser posted Fluff n Stuff which is Chris/Lance, and also has the best title ever!

So go read, and please, if you enjoy let them know.

I have more things to pimp. [livejournal.com profile] llamabitchyo has been doing amazing work over at [livejournal.com profile] dirtypod and today I saw that she'd recorded one of my stories. Which made me feel all proud, because I'm lame like that. If you have any interest in podfic go and check out the comm because a lot of good stuff has been posted. I may even get time to download it one day.

Also, Camp Sparkle 3 plans are underway! You know you want to add words to the five word story, eat an insane amount of sugar, drink coffee, tea and diet coke, sit around the kitchen table and chat, watch footage, join the breakaway groups for bandom other fandom chat and squee and most importantly, meet some kick-ass fans. There's a post here *tempts*

[livejournal.com profile] nopseud is doing good things over at [livejournal.com profile] shinyandnew So if you're out of the habit of announcing new popslash there, start again.

[livejournal.com profile] ephemera. THANK YOU! I have the latest Kerrang now, and as well as an excellent Pete article it has the bonus of half-naked Pete on the front. Which is always a plus.

Which brings me to [livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane's latest story which I read earlier and loved it so much. It made me laugh pretty much all the way through because baby!Panic and genius!Mikey are the best combination ever! The Grasshopper Unit

The Awesome April Challenge story for today has been posted!

It's by [livejournal.com profile] phaballa. It's Nick/everyone, which come on, is fantastic

It's And the Card Attached Would Say

Go, read, feed! You won't regret it.

In other news. I'm watching the A-Z of Gladiators and have no shame in saying I used to love that show, and will be watching the new series. But man, Hunter. What's happened to you?!
turps: (RPS YAY (seiyaharris))
Playing catch up here.

[livejournal.com profile] kaethe has posted her Awesome April Challenge story for the 26th.

It's Nick/AJ, and man, it's one heck of a read. A big old gold star for [livejournal.com profile] kaethe for producing three quality popslash stories this month. Go her!

Misscommunication

You know what to do!
turps: (RPS YAY (seiyaharris))
As [livejournal.com profile] withdiamonds and [livejournal.com profile] lesasoja agreed to share a day, I have another Awesome April story to announce!

It's by [livejournal.com profile] withdiamonds and as she says. This is a little bit Timbertrick, a little bit Lambs.

Now, I haven't read it yet, but it's by Donna. Quality is guaranteed.

So go, read, and please comment if you enjoy.

No Exit

In non-challenge news. James just phoned to tell me what he's eating for his bush tucker trial. meal worms and wichety ( sp? ) grubs and cat food and other insect-y things that surely shouldn't be near anyone's mouth. Though I did laugh when he told me they were going use crickets until they found out they were poisonous. What can I say? I'm evil like that.
turps: (RPS YAY (seiyaharris))
[livejournal.com profile] stubbleglitter posted her Awesome April Challenge story, and it was posted on time, even if I suck and didn't actually announce it on time. A big fail for me.

It's set in Maggie's Baltimore Homicide Unit universe which gave me so much glee, because that universe is so good. I remember sending feedback saying I loved Chris and Britney being partners and wishing there was more of that in the first story. And now there is!

Riding in Cars With Partners

Go, read, feed.

Oh, and while I've been writing this [livejournal.com profile] lesasoja has posted her story for today. Obviously I haven't read it yet, but this is Lesa, you know it's going to be good. Especially as it's a Lance/Nick, which is a pairing that's sadly lacking I feel.

Decision

You know what to do!
turps: (RPS YAY (seiyaharris))
[livejournal.com profile] randomling has posted her Awesome April Challenge story. Well, she posted it yesterday but I was lame and went to bed really early. Anyway. It's Choey! It has a slight blood play element. It is amazing! So go, see, tell her she rocks.

Thicker Than Vodka

You know who else rocks? [livejournal.com profile] mickeym. Thank you so much for the devil duck. *smooches you evilly*

[livejournal.com profile] pensnest has opened the Dragon Challenge. If you write popslash you should join up, because it's a fantastic challenge. Spot, my story for the challenge two years ago remains one of my favorite stories that I've written. So you too could end with something amazing. It's actually Dragons, dwarves and dolphins this year. Which of course means I have to sequel my Joey/dolphin, now with added blow hole action.

Dragon Challenge

I'm Not Gonna Write You a Love Song by [livejournal.com profile] kaethe Chris/AJ It's one hell of a read. Trust me.
turps: (RPS YAY (seiyaharris))
[livejournal.com profile] kira_j has posted her story for The Awesome April Challenge.

It's Brian/Nick. Brian/Nick people, you know you want to read.

If you do, please leave a comment letting them know.

don’t tell me i’ll learn
turps: (RPS YAY (seiyaharris))
[livejournal.com profile] _ducks has posted her Awesome April Challenge!

It's Justin centric, and honestly, it really does deserve that awesome lable.

[livejournal.com profile] justhitstatic has posted her Awesome April Challenge story.

It's Brian/Nick and written so beautifully. So go read and enjoy it too, and if you do, please leave a comment.

[livejournal.com profile] zelda_zee has posted her Awesome April Challenge story!

Now I haven't actually read it yet as I spotted it when I refreshed my flist, but it's [livejournal.com profile] zelda_zee, you know it's going to be good.

I do know it's Justin/JC. So go, read and feed.

Life is What Happens
turps: (RPS YAY (seiyaharris))
[livejournal.com profile] fadedsouls has posted her Awesome April Challenge story!

Normally I'd give a little blurb here about why it's fab, but I'll let the first line speak for itself.

It all started with Kevin's eyebrows, or rather, the lack thereof.

With a beginning like that you know it's going to be good. So go, read and feed!

Probably Not the Best Idea Ever
turps: (RPS YAY (seiyaharris))
[livejournal.com profile] adelate has posted her Awesome April challenge story.

It's JC/Nick and just wonderful.

So go read, tell her how much she rules.

I have two Awesome April stories to announce.

First, we have the one from yesterday, which is by [livejournal.com profile] stellamira. It's trickc, it' set in a dentist, and it's awesome \o/

My Shiny Teeth and Me

The second is the story for today, which is by [livejournal.com profile] pensnest. It's set in her Chronicles of Lancyn and Ser Chrisfer universe, and if you've read those, you know how fantastic they are, so you know you'll be getting a treat \o/

Trials

So go, read, feed. Because these are two kick-ass stories.
turps: (RPS YAY (seiyaharris))
I woke up to find [livejournal.com profile] ephemera_pop has posted her Awesome April Challenge story.

I've had the pleasure of giving this a look over, so I know it's written beautifully with a lovely sense of humour throughout.

It's Nick and Howie centric, so go, enjoy, and let her know if you do.

Things Are Getting Weirder Now
turps: (RPS YAY (seiyaharris))
It's now midnight, so I can post about the next Awesome April story, because [livejournal.com profile] vaudevilles really is awesome and has posted it already. Though she cheats by living on the other side of the world ;)

It's trickc \o/
It's fantastic!
It's called All I Am Is Holding Breath

You know what to do :D

Also, can I say. A huge thank you to all the writers who are making my job so much easier by getting stories done and posted on time. You're the ones that are awesome.
turps: (RPS YAY (seiyaharris))
The Awesome April story for today has been posted! It's by [livejournal.com profile] boomingvoice it's Justin/Nick and it's written so beautifully well.

Go, see, read and feed

I've just ironed for three hours, then my boys took the clothes and are putting them away without being asked. Which, wow. Also, the picture of Brendon's birthday party I keep seeing makes me giggle each time. It's also such a lovely night, so I have the window open next to me, letting in the cool night air. It's a lovely combination I must say.

So let's have a meme.

ETA: I suck at this meme so have a nice handful of things to write, which suits me fine, but no more now. Have pity on this clueless person *g*

A-- Go to my fic bandslash and popslash and pick out a line or two from one of my stories.
B-- I will respond with which story I think it's from.
C-- I'll write a scene of at least 100 words for anyone who stumps me on any subject/pairing of their choosing.
