mab_browne: A canon hug from The Sentinel (Sentinel OTP)
[personal profile] mab_browne
There are fannishly inclined people out in the big wide world who don't know about The Sentinel, so I'm doing an overview for the Whumpable comm on Dreamwidth. Might I have your favourite h/c moments in canon?

I will cross-post this to TS-Talk and my personal journal, so apologies if you see it more than once. :-)

I'm planning on making a change to how Sentinel Thursday on LJ is organised. This post explains.

I've made a post, here to enable fans to find some of their friends on DW. It doesn't matter if you're staying firmly at LJ, working both sides, or moving mostly to DW; if you'd like to be added to the list, just comment on the post.

It doesn't matter if you're still fully committed to The Sentinel, or if you've branched out to other fandoms. If you know any of these people, and would like to be added to the list, just comment on the post.

Feel free to boost this announcement in your own journals/studios. This is just my small effort to help us keep track of our friends.

It's here at last – sign-ups are open for the first Sentinel Big Bang. There's something for everyone: you can sign up as an author and write wonderful fiction; you can sign up as an artist and illustrate one of those stories ("art" in this context is not limited to pictures - it can be vids, fanmixes, or anything else that's web-postable) or you can sign up as a cheerleader and help our authors reach their goal.

Author signups are here (signups are open until April 21):

Artist signups are here (signups are open until September 13):

Cheerleader signups are here (signups are open until April 21):

Yes, you can sign up for more than one of these if you want to!

I've also posted a "Plot bunnies for adoption" post here:

This is where I encourage everyone to share prompts and story ideas to help any authors who want to take part but need to kick-start the muse a little.

I have created a "mirror" community for Sentinel Big Bang on Dreamwidth: [community profile] sentinelbigbang This will serve as a backup in case LJ falls over on a key date or LJ's overlords decide to ban fandom get the picture. You're welcome to join or follow the challenge on Dreamwidth, but all posts will redirect to the LJ community [ profile] sentinelbigbang for commenting, because most of the participants primarily use LJ and I want to keep comments and discussion in one place. (If we have enough Dreamwidth people next year, I'll switch and make LJ the mirror.)

For anyone who missed the earlier announcements, here's the more detailed explanation of what the Big Bang challenge is all about:
Mission Statement - What's a Big Bang and how does it work?
How to combine Big Bang and Moonridge
Challenge Schedule
Big Bang Rules

Artifact Storage Room 3 (the archive not the room) will soon be celebrating its first birthday, and to mark the occasion, the mods would like to do something special. However, we'd like to keep it as something of a surprise, so I'd just like to ask any writers, artists, vidders or people engaged in any creative endeavours who would like to be involved to contact the mods at this e-mail address.

Twenty-four hours in, and already we have 44 subscribers - living proof that the TS fandom is thriving, even in this new venue!

Thanks so much to everyone who has joined, and thanks also to everyone who has posted to say hello. If anyone else feels like stepping up to the plate, please do! You are all, every single one of you, very welcome, and we'd all love to hear from you.

I am aiming to get a post of links to Sentinel-related places on Dreamwidth up soon, so to ensure that I cover it all I am asking for your help. If you know of any TS or TS-related communities on Dreamwidth, I'd be really grateful if you'd comment below with a link to the community, and a brief description. I'll use any info you give me to help me build a much-needed master list.

Thanks in advance!

*waves*  Hey, all.  I run [community profile] ts_newsletter, the Sentinel newsletter, which is crossposted just about everywhere.  :-)  I'll definitely be watching this community for links, but if you see something pop up elsewhere please let me know!

I fell into the TS fandom years ago and pretty much lurked forever.  It wasn't until I started the newsletter that I started interacting in anyway with other Sentinel fans.  This is an awesome fandom and I love being in it.  I read mostly slash, with the occasional sprinkling of gen.  I think Jim/Blair is great, but I could persuaded to mix it up as long as both the guys are happy!

I am a fandom magpie, so I do tend to fall in love with the new shiny, but I rarely leave a fandom behind. The more, the merrier is my motto!

*waves at everyone*  This is a great idea, Bev!

I've been a fan of and writing in TS since 2006, which makes me a babe in the woods in TS fandom!  *g*  I actually didn't even watch the show during the first run, but I'm in love with it now.

I'm snycock on LJ as well.  I moderate a community there, giveandtakets, which is a yearly prompt exchange and fic writing challenge.  I also organize and run the weekly TS chat on Yahoo Messenger Saturdays at 7 pm GMT (your time zone may vary). 

I like and watch a lot of TV shows, but I haven't felt pulled into fandom by any of them the way I was with TS.  I've been reading a little in Supernatural (Dean/Castiel), and I'm starting to get a serious squee on for Merlin.  I'm also a fan of the Swordspoint stories. 

I'm glad to see a little corner of DW getting Sentinelized!  :-)

It's maybe a little silly of me to post, given that I know nearly everyone on the membership list - but then I don't know absolutely everyone and Bev would like the place to look lived in. :-)

Hi, I journal as Mab Browne here and on Live Journal. I've been happily obsessed with Jim and Blair for six years, and writing fanfic about them for five and a half years. By TS standards, this makes me something of a newbie...*g* I also write a little bit in The Professionals fandom, and I read fairly widely in a variety of other fandoms. I prefer slash, but I'm open to a good gen, het or fem-slash story too.

Major interests besides TS and Pros include Stargate Atlantis, Babylon 5, Blakes 7, Elfquest, Sapphire and Steel, and also books and reading in general. I like history, with a particular jones for the nineteenth century, mainly the UK's history, although I'd like to explore the USA in that regard as well.

I moderate the community [ profile] sentinel_thurs on Live Journal, and have set up a sister-comm here on D-width, [community profile] sentinel_thursday. We'll see how that goes, since new environments create new situations. :-)
