Hey, friends! I'm back on LiveJournal after being away for several years, and I'm wondering what some of your favorite active communities are. A lot of the ones I used to frequent are pretty much dead now, particularly a lot of the layouts/graphics comms I used to follow. :/

Any recommendations? What should I be participating in aside from HiH? Thanks!

StarfleetHQ is a DW landcomm focused on all things Star Trek! Teams are OPERATIONS, SCIENCE & MEDICAL, and TACTICAL & ADMINISTRATION (which is currently understaffed! WHO'S FLYING THIS THING?!?)

The first round begins March 02 - but a few pre-round challenges are already posted!

Since I know there are quite a few readers here in HiH, I thought I'd take a moment to talk to you about our lord and savior Dewey's 24-hour Readathon.

Yes, it's exactly as crazy as it sounds: it's 24-hours straight of reading. The event started in 2007, and takes place twice a year, in April and October, so this will be the 20th Readathon. The next one is this coming Saturday, the 21st, which is why I'm posting this now. In the eastern US/Canada timezone, it's from 8 AM Saturday to 8 AM Sunday, and it's at the same time everywhere around the world, so start times for where you are can be checked here.

Everyone can of course participate how much, how little and however they want. It can also be a very communal event, since every hour there are different activities posted, questions or memes to answer, either on the blog I posted above, on social media, on Goodreads...

This will be my third Readathon. In October 2016 I participated with The Origin of Species (why? dumbest idea ever...), lasted until 2 AM, and gave up and went to bed. In April 2017 I read HP3 and started HP4. I again stopped at 2 AM, but because there was a F1 race in the morning (priorities) and I had things to do on Sunday so I figured I'd better get a few hours of sleep. This year I'm planning HP6 and 7 (because I'll be writing a fic for NaNo taking place in 96-98 and I haven't read those two in ages) and I want to try for the whole 24 hours. The F1 race on the 22nd is in the afternoon, and I kept the day free, so it's perfect for naps and getting enough sleep to be functional for work on Monday.

So, has anybody else done the Readathon before? Are you interested in doing it this year? Or will I be the only crazy person reading for 24 hours straight?

Advent Challenge will have an official round this year! We look forward to many good fic and art this round.

Not sure what it is? Check out this post for details. To sum up: we're a multi fandom challenge in December that has no minimum or maximum word count. All we look for is fanworks and for everyone to have fun!




We are having a December fest! It'll be prompt based so we'll need prompters as well as writers, artists, and betas. Stop on in and check it out!

lands_of_magic is an interactive challenge community (landcomm) based in all types of fantasy, sci-fi, and supernatural fandoms, including superhero and horror genres that ran on LiveJournal for over four years and is now making its debut on dreamWidth! We have two teams, The Summer Court and The Winter Court, and though our first round here on dreamWidth doesn't start until October 6, we have a few activities open right now for early joiners to get a jump on earning points for their teams! Come join us today!

I'm assigned to THE SUMMER COURT (under the same username), so if you do join in then mention me as that will win extra points for the team!

HiH! I need your help!

If you have a minute, can you go to this post: ( http://ellisbell.livejournal.com/748569.html ) and take two polls to help me decide on some cat names?  My family cannot get it together. One cat has been just "Kitty" for almost a year, the other cat is new, and both deserve a name!

I decided since the Humane Society gave the new one the name "Draco", it was on-topic enough to make a plea here. :D  While Draco is a great name of course, it doesn't fit this cat's personality in any way.

I posted pictures and detailed descriptions of both, and there's an option for your own ideas as well.

Many thanks!!
