Queer and MWPP, not necessarily at the same time... lgbtq_recsmonth has begun! Thanks to kyasuriin and schemingreader for starting us off by recommending Beth Goobie's young adult novel Hello, Groin, about a Canadian teen coming to terms with her sexuality, and sex columnist Dan Savage's The Commitment, a book about marriage equality and the commitment he's made to his own same-sex partner. I'll post the master list here at the end of the month, but if you'd like to follow the daily recs, feel free to watch the community. This should be fun! Pride's only one weekend, but this lasts all month. Plus you don't need to wear your leather.
800_wordsis up and running! Huge thanks to co-mod sambethe for setting it up this weekend. Watch or join this low-key, low-commitment comm for ficlets about the MWPP era. Sirius/James porn, motorbike appreciations, Very Serious scenarios in which Peter's Muggle-born status leads to his eventual change of political allegiances...all is welcome. 800-word ficlets are due at midnight Sunday, June 8th. You get two days to read them anonymously and guess who wrote what, then reveals go up Wednesday, June 11 to celebrate such_heights's birthday (and coincide with the publication of JKR's own 800-word ficlet). What's easier and more fun than ficlets you can read and write on the run? Enjoy First War era fic again! Beat JKR to the punch!
