(If you're aware of a community I haven't included, please let me know. Also, I will be updating this when I learn of new communities, so feel free to let me know of any new communities that pop up. Thanks.)I'd like to pimp the comm that I'm a moderator of! It the_gay_chip, a comm for slashy episode-based discussion in both SG-1 and SG:A.
Added with this update! Thanks.
physics_flyboys is a McKay and Sheppard community that I mod.
Yep, I'm aware of it! It's on my list for the next update. *g*
I have the following communities noted in my bookmarks which I don't see here (unless I missed 'em, which is possible, since there's a *lot* of info here):andromedagate - tag fic AU crossover between Andromeda and SGA, set in Atlantisgate_bitextual - community for fic and art that doesn't fit into simple het or slash or gen categories (threesomes, etc)serenity_gate - community for AU fic based on a crossover between Firefly/Serenity and SGA, set in the Atlantis 'versesga_fusion - from the Comm Info: I have populated the Atlantis military contingent with offworld teams made up of characters from other shows I am fans of. So there's Lt. Welsh's team, with Fraser, Vecchio and Kowalski, and Captain Banks' team, with Ellison, Sandburg and Connor, and of *course* Captain Reynolds' team, with Zoe and Jayne and Washsgahalloween - Halloween fic challenge community (low traffic)kavtolanon - for the few, the proud, the Kavanagh fans among us.I think there's also an SGA secret santa fic comm, but I don't know/remember the name....
I have several of those on my list for the next update (which I guess I should do since it's been awhile *g*), but I was unaware of serenity_gate and kavtolanon, so thanks for those. This fandom grows so fast it's sometimes hard to keep up with it! As for andromedagate, I'm not including rpg-tag comms where only the one or two taggers can post on this list, just as I'm not including individual LJs. If you happen to notice anything else I've missed, let me know! *g*
Thanks! I've added it to my list for the next update. *gZ*
Wow, this is such an amazing resource, there's such a lot of hard work put into it. It's so difficult to find these communities - so it's great to have a list to choose from as a starting point. It can be especially frustrating if you find them, and then lose them, so this listing is very much appreciated by those of us (me) who would lose their nose if it wasn't attached. Thank you.
Thank you!! I'm just thrilled that it's finally getting some use. *bg*
Um, well there's two I have that I don't see: tajneinformace is a Radek Zelenka comm. It's a spin-off from welovezelenka. The name's Czech for secret police, but the comm itself is in English. atlantiskink, which is for sga kink fic, links, recs, and challanges. Not just BDSM, but all kinds of things that can be classed as kinks or fetishes. Mostly slash, although het is welcome.Oh, and there's also sga_post_secret, the secret postcards comm.
atlantiskink and sga_post_secret are both already on the list (under content-specific fan fiction), but I'll add tajneinformace to the update list. Thanks!
240 plus. I am in awe. What a blessing that you're organizing this. Now I have to run off and check some of these out *g*
That figure built up over the last year, thank goodness, because if there were that many comms when I first created the Guide, I might have been too overwhelmed by it all, lol! Glad you're finding it useful. *g*
One more for the pairing-specific: beckett_cadmanSeriously, such an awesome resource list.
Thank you! I'm glad you're finding it useful. *g*Thanks for letting me know about that comm, I've added it to my list for the next update.
Really useful list - I know I added it to the community info for mckay_sheppard. Just one thing - I'm pretty sure that atlantis_ot3 is now open to all threesomes, not just McKay/Sheppard/Weir.
Thanks for letting me know that; I'll check it out. *g*(And thanks again for linking to it from the mckay_sheppard info page; I really appreciate it. *g*)
Oh wow! This is great! Now I'll never have time to sleep! Thanks for compiling this list.
Sleep is overrated. *g*Thanks! I'm glad you're finding it useful.
Just so you're aware, the rules of wildwest_lantis were modified to accept NC-17 so long as it's correctly labelled.
Thanks for letting me know, I'll make that change in the next update. *g*
This? Is utter brilliance, lol. Thanks for compiling all this stuff!Uh...was wondering, though...could you maybe put (new w/date, an asterisk) or something beside the stuff you add during updates? So we can see what's been added each time, I mean.
You're welcome! Glad it's coming in handy. *g*You know, I actually had considered doing that, a bit before I did the actual update, and it just sort of slipped my mind. I still hadn't decided if it was doable for me (I mean, this update - 15 comms - was, like, nothing *g*; normally it's much larger). Just having to do one extra step, while not onerous... I'm still pondering it. I might give it a try once to see how much of a project it would be.
Have you thought about including the syndicated feeds for David and Kate Hewlett's own blogs? davidhewlett and kate_hewlett
Oh, wow, I am such an idjit! Especially since I have DH's blog on my f-list and so should have remembered it. Yes, I will add them. Thanks for the reminder!
There's a fairly new one... raregateshipone - its het rare pairings.
Thanks for letting me know about it; I've added it to my list for the next update. *g*
I think I may have found some ones you missed here -- http://sgatlantislight.livejournal.com/72870.html
Got another one for you :)weirzelenkaship - for, strangely enough, Weir/Zelenka fans, open to both romance and friendship stories.Not very active but, you know, there ::g::
Thanks for pointing it out! I've added to my list for the next update. *g*
One to add -- girlgate, community for the women of Stargate, pretty much anything-goes so long as it's related to the women of SG-1 or Atlantis. Fic, meta, news, discussion, et cetera.
Thank you! I've added it to the list for the next update. *g*
sheps_atlantisblurb on the profile: This is a community devoted to Shep's Atlantis (otherwise known as Stargate: Atlantis) and is for discussion, fanfiction, and challenges. We welcome all fans of the show!Unacceptable content: above R-rated, slash, real people/actors.
found another new one: sga_canada_helpHelping You Write Authentic Canadians Since 2007
*jaw drops on floor*You've organized these fantastically and it's so.. thorough..! *applauds* You provide newbies with a fantastic fannish service!
Thank you! I'm pleased that you think it's helpful. *g*I must admit, if I knew back in May 2005 how large the fandom would grow, I might have thought twice about taking this on. *g*
You're missing daysofatlantis which should probably be in the AU category.And I don't know if you want to include it because it's not specifically SGA, but there's a feed to the Hewligan fic archivehttp://syndicated.livejournal.com/hewligan_fic/profile
I'm not including any of the Hewligan comms for the reason you state.daysofatlantis appeared to be a closed fic comm; I'm not including any of those, for the same reason I don't include personal fic journals.
Wow! That is fabulous! What an excellent resource! Thank you so much.It occurred to me that some convention communities might be around... I was visiting peg2con before Pegasus 2 in London, and peg3con is already set up for next year's con. Of course, I imagine some of these communties are temporary, but... *shrug*Anyway, great work and much appreciated!
Thanks for the suggestion! *g*
spikedluv, your due South and SGA newbieguide entries have been real lifesavers for me. I've put them both to favorites.Also wanted to let you know about bottom_rodney "A community for anyone who wants to bend over Rodney McKay." Both het and slash are welcome. lishel_fracrium is the mod.
And while we're at it, bottom_john is up, too. I think rasah's in charge.
Jason Momoa/Ronon Dex:satedan_firerdfever
not to toot our own horns or anything, but my friend semirose and I have just started lorne100oh yeah, it's for drabbling about Major Lorne :D anything and everything about Lorne is welcome, as long as it's under 120 words :DEdited at 2008-01-26 10:06 pm (UTC)
No, self-pimpage is muchly appreciated! Thank you; I've added it to my way-behind update list. *g*
For OT4 and gen Team Shep, team_sga is run by mecurtin. Possibly it should go under "pairings", but I'm not sure....And sga_bigbang counts as a ficathon, right? *g*
Thanks for the heads up, I'll add these (and the one you mentioned above) to the list.
