Ficathons Anonymous  
With sabaceanbabe I have decided that the (fic)world needs Ficathons Anonymous. Because -- we both swore off them, that our last one would be the last. And yet, we simply could not resist the allure of the Helo Shagathon .

Clearly, we have a problem.

The first step to dealing with a problem is realizing that you have a problem, so we're well on our way. The second step is creating joining, Ficathons Anonymous .

So, I'll start our first meeting.

Hello. My name is Lizardbeth, and I'm a ficathon-aholic. I just signed up for my latest ficathon even after I swore I was all ficathonned out after yuletide, sg_rarepairings and potcsecretsanta. I have a problem. *sniff* I need your help.

Does anyone else have this problem and would like to talk about it?

Hello Medie! Yes, it seems you definitely belong here at the meeting. So pull up a chair and have a seat. First we'll talk about slowly weaning ourselves off the ficathons or if going cold turkey is the way to go. We're all here for you and we understand.

Hi. My name is Lyssie, and I offered to pinch-hit in the Weir ficathon, and have yet to do so. I finked out on the Sparky ficathon, and took two months to finish the secondary character one...

And, well, I may have never finished the Teal'cathon organization, leaving four fics unwritten.

*hangs head in shame*

And also, I'm writing Lee/Anders. DAMN YOU, Lizardbeth.

My totally evil genius plan comes to fruition!

Because, I'm sorry, EoJ is totally slashy and if Sam really is one of the Final Five then he's got staying power, dude, and no wonder Kara keeps frakking him and Lee wants to know what he's missing...

I still want Sam to be president. cuz that would be cooler. Maybe he'll shoot Roslin, everyone will think he's a cylon, but everyone will be so glad they'll make him president anyway.

Yes, well, Jammer will come back and haunt him in his head. And Kara will insist on being called the First Husband.
lizardbeth: K-A Rapturelizardbeth_j on January 8th, 2007 05:41 am (UTC)
*snort* I was going to say something about Kara being First Lady and I couldn't get the words to come out.

OMG, Head!Jammer. Couldn't he have a Head!Helo instead? much yummier. Or maybe Head!Three. That would be creepy.

He could have a head!Leoben.
lizardbeth: K-A Rapturelizardbeth_j on January 8th, 2007 05:54 am (UTC)
And three days later, Sam goes completely insane. No, no, Leoben's too annoying.

Reminds me, I still want to do that Three/Sam "Do you really think we didn't know you were here, Sammy?" fic. Gah. Need time. And nagging.

No. Sam just keeps shooting the halucination in his head. (he already has the crazy!John Crichton hair, why not give him the psychosis as well?)
lizardbeth: Anderslizardbeth_j on January 8th, 2007 04:50 pm (UTC)
"Back in the dumpster, Leoben, you crazy freak!"

entertaining in a disturbing way: Kara Anders then they done sexlyssie on January 8th, 2007 11:55 pm (UTC)
....does this mean I have to put Sam in the Aurora Chair? (also, technically, they've already had the Coin Toss scene. Kinda. Now I want Sam to tell Kara, "I think I shouldn't have given you back the dog tag." Possibly while they're pointing guns at each other...)
lizardbeth: Kara-anderslizardbeth_j on January 9th, 2007 12:13 am (UTC)
if Leoben is Sam's Harvey, then he likely acquired him on New Caprica, don't you think? maybe Sam wasn't quite so left alone as we think?

Leoben is looking for Kara, right? that's the last bit we see in ldyb2. maybe he got pissed that Kara's not there and not in a mood to take pity on the sick guy, takes him prisoner, fraks with his head in some way and then lets him go. Sam thinks he's free and clear, but then he keeps having these visions... (which was kind of what I was planning for Three/Sam anyway, without the Imaginary Friend bit).

oh dear God, are we writing a fic? :)
entertaining in a disturbing way: Kara Anders unforgettablelyssie on January 9th, 2007 12:28 am (UTC)
We should, shouldn't we...

I meant to ask, your Three fic is on New Cap, yes?

Although, we're mean to Sam, aren't we? I've got unfinished fic where he gets tortured after EoJ, 'cause they capture him when he's searching for Kara.
lizardbeth: Kara-anderslizardbeth_j on January 9th, 2007 12:41 am (UTC)
yep, it's Three capturing Sam on NC during the occupation. Though I wouldn't go so far as call it a fic yet. It's just a page or so - more an idea right now. Nothing I can't give up for something better. :)

We're only mean to the ones we love.

entertaining in a disturbing way: Kara Anders Not Easylyssie on January 9th, 2007 12:46 am (UTC)
Nooo. No giving it up. Write. *craves fic*

We are. Sadly. Sigh.

But it means we write them fic? So that is good?

Damn. I'm going to get whiny.
Tels: Cadetelscha on January 8th, 2007 05:10 am (UTC)
Well I would be if I could actually find comms for ficathaons lol. I am doing a marcus drabble one which is fun but drabbles arent' the same as long fics.
lizardbeth: Baallizardbeth_j on January 8th, 2007 05:17 am (UTC)
most of 'em pop up in the various fandom newsletters. But I'll tell you there ain't never gonna be a Jeremiah one... :( They only happen in big, active fandoms.

But the drabble/Big Damn table ones count. And you've done two, now, right? See, you're an addict too. So pull up a chair.
Tels: Markus Erintelscha on January 8th, 2007 05:26 am (UTC)
maybe we should start one ;)
lizardbeth: Markuslizardbeth_j on January 8th, 2007 05:30 am (UTC)
y'know what's scary? Before you so (wonderfully) fulfilled my NYR, I was going to propose on VS that we should try to fulfill the NYR requests, swap them around, and add a few for people who didn't get a chance to do one. A ficathon, in other words.

Tels: not sleepingtelscha on January 8th, 2007 05:17 pm (UTC)
fandom newsletters? and the attempt to rally support for a jeremiah ficathon is underway :D Not that I know how to organise one
lizardbethlizardbeth_j on January 8th, 2007 07:26 pm (UTC)
There's sg1_debrief the SG1 newsletter (currently on hiatus for the holidays, but should be back shortly, I hope), or the sga_newsletter for SGA. those usually will pick up the challenges/ficathons/etc for a given fandom if they're not ones you find through your flist. I watch the SG-1, SGA, Supernatural, BSG, and PotC fandom newsletters because those are my main fandoms right now. I know of several more. But just check through friends-of-friends, or interests if you're also into Sentinel or something like that, because they exist.

I can help organize it, if you want. I've done several so I know how they work.

I will read anything you guys write and enjoy everyword and follow it it with heaps of praise

Thank goodness we have enablers, otherwise ficathon addiction would never be as fun!

*hangs head in shame*

My name is sabaceanbabe and I'm a ficathon-aholic.

I'm supposed to be pinch-hitting for the friendship-thon, but lost all my notes in a tragic Palm crash. I'm not yet finished with my first Sweet Charity fic and have yet to start the second one (I'm sooooooo sorry, repr0b8 and poisontaster!). I have a birthday fic to write (several weeks late now) for kazbaby. We won't even talk about the vids that I've promised people, but can't seem to get myself to work on.

And yet, I was the first to sign up for the Helo ShAgathon. Worse, I had a brilliant idea for a (maybe) new kind of ficathon for pyramidofdreams.

Somebody, please help me!
lizardbeth: Anders want it?lizardbeth_j on January 8th, 2007 04:27 pm (UTC)
And sadly, my first thought:

"New ficathon idea for pyramidofdreams! OOO SHINY!"

We are addicted, it's true.

And what might this idea be?
