So...I have a community called [livejournal.com profile] dean_slash. It's still quite small, just over 100 members. It caters to Dean slash, obviously. I couldn't believe there wasn't a comm for it already. I mean, there were more general ones for Supernatural slash, and more specific ones for certain pairings or kinks, but nothing in between.

Now, a lot of Dean pairings involve angels. Just one of those things, what with him being like, say... 'angel catnip'. This was discussed in a recent post on [livejournal.com profile] dean_slash, though being far from the first time anyone's thought of it, I mentioned it. Someone says they should make a community for it, and then and there starts asking for help moderating etc their new comm. In the thread on [livejournal.com profile] dean_slash. Then a few days later they're pimping this comm in [livejournal.com profile] dean_slash without asking. I know they didn't mean any offence by that or anything.

But am I being unreasonable by getting a little upset over it? I mean, anything that could be posted on the new Dean/angel comm (aside from Dean/Rachel and Dean/Anna) could be posted in [livejournal.com profile] dean_slash. And while I'm working hard on trying to make the community a friendly and lively place, trying to draw people in with challenges and stuff, it does hurt to see people saying 'hey guys, party in that house over there instead!' Especially since my comm exclusively was used to discuss and promote theirs.

I just feel a bit kicked.

People saying they wish SPN was cancelled make me sadface. It's still an enjoyable show! I mean, it has its problems, but while it's still enjoyable to tune in (and for me, most episodes were good), why wish it was no more? Very sad. I mean, come on. No season 6 would have meant less bad-ass Crowley. That is not a world I want to live in. *nursing an unhealthy Crowley obsession right now* I'm working on two different Crowley/Dean fics at the moment, one crime AU with Crowley as a mob boss and the Winchesters as his thugs. One is that snapshots AU of S4 onwards, which I want to get back to working on soon. Still editing my Big Bang though. I might try and write more of my Gabriel/Dean Mini Bang at work if I'm not busy. I hope it's not busy, I'm sleepy today.

On the plus side, most people answering the Writer's Block question seem to wish House was cancelled, which I can agree with, because I've never liked it. Ever. Aside from one memorably humorous quote: "I don't sleep with everyone who's better than Hitler", I've never seen the appeal.

Anyway, I'm going to post some icons now. Not many, mind.

Eleven icons from 1x10, 'Asylum'. I liked that ep a lot, it was the one that dragged me into SPN fandom. )

Right, that's it. After another really spoilery story summary on my friend's list, I've had to stop watching all SPN comms. I've even found over the past week that asking people to be a bit more considerate isn't working. A couple of people will put spoilery summaries behind the cut, but a lot of people just figure if they've watched it you should have too. And though this is probably too little too late for me, since I've been reasonably spoiled now, I'm not watching the comms for a while. Which makes me sad, because I like SPN fic a lot, you know? And not every story is going to have 6x22 spoilers. Just about 8 out of 10 of them.

EDIT: Obviously not dewatching [livejournal.com profile] dean_slash, due to it being my baby and all.

I'm tempted to take all communities welcoming Castiel/Dean off of my f-list until I've caught up. I haven't seen 6x20 and there have been about 50 friggin' stories about it. Some say they're about 6x20 and I can just skip along on my merry way, some explain in the summary to what extent they're about 6x20, thus spoiling more of the episode for me (as if I haven't already been spoiled enough). Some actually say 'spoilers: none' then I get smacked in the face with them when I click the link. And yeah, okay, I get it. Some communities are stupid enough to say spoilers are only spoilers for a week. That's not right. Spoilers can happen at any point. Maybe after a week they're unthreatening spoilers, since most Americans and people who download or people who aren't waiting to watch it with their friend who has exams will have seen it already. That doesn't mean you can say 'spoilers: none'. If it contains something from a recent episode, the decent thing to do is to say that. Sure with older, well-known episodes the summary line might give some of it away. It would be silly to complain about that. But would it really kill people writing about 6x20 to drop their spoilery summary line beneath the LJ cut as well?

I really don't want to have to stop watching SPN comms until I've caught up... :(

Joke is, I'm not even a spoiler-phobe. I've just been spoiled so much for Season 6 that watching it is like seeing it for the second time at this point.

Just nipped over to Supernatural Wiki to check what type of car Death drives (Cadillac) and there's a fucking character death spoiler on the homepage. What the hell?! That's the second one I've been hit with in a week! What am I supposed to do, turn off the internet like spoilerphobes with the last Harry Potter book? I'm not even that bothered by spoilers but I know so many now that it's ruining the show. If you're wondering, I'm like, six episodes into season 6.

Anyway, here's 18 icons from Season One, Episode Seven, 'Hookman'. Comment and credit if you take any, please. )

Hi again. Another mod just mentioned rejecting your same post for something else, oops. Some of us are more lenient than others when it comes to things like header info, but we're not out to get you, I promise. Sorry, and please repost. /o\

Do I? I'm not sure I can take a fifth rejection without screaming and my throat is majorly sore.

Okay. One more time. If this fails I'm not posting there ever again.

Thing is, I'm not sure I can actually be arsed with all the linking and cutting and bolding and italicising and copying and pasting... I'm ill. I'm bored of cross-posting.

*sigh* Here goes...

Following on from this post, I e-mailed them this )

and received this e-mail in return )

They seemed polite and everything, even if the reason for not accepting my post still seemed ridiculous when they had refused to let me post a bunch of chapters already. So I decided to try posting again with a note at the top explaining what the master-post included, etc.

THEY FUCKING REJECTED IT )

As you'll recall, [livejournal.com profile] deancastiel asked me to stop posting individual Cas/Dean chapters that met their comm requirements, as I was 'posting too much'. I figured I'd just wait and post the masterpost once the whole thing was completed.

It's been rejected!

Here are the reasons for the rejection as provided by the moderator: Please link to new content instead of just the master post. Thanks!

WHAT THE FUCK? I was told to stop posting the new content, to post it all together! ARGH!

I've just tried to post it again in a fit of impotent rage. They're miffed now.

Here are the reasons for the rejection as provided by the moderator:

As I said before, please link to new content. We don't allow reposting of old fic, and you've already posted your master list before.

I've e-mailed them and await their response...
