solesakuma: Nino with an amusing expression (Nino is amused)
+ Life's busy! Very busy. I'm still dealing with that and how to organize myself to get everything done.

+ Fandom-wise, I'm drowning in Steve/Tony feels. Drowning in them.

(I play Tony in a multifandom RPG and... drowning.)

+ Remix is doing its 9th Cycle. I can't believe I'm still doing that. I love my little baby. Anna and I did talk about offering our services as remix mods for other fandoms. We're total pros.

+ If I can think of a name, I still really want to run a Dead Fandoms exchange. But I can't think of that name so...

+ My RPG circle, somehow, managed to create a D&Dish guild full of OCs. In like. three days we have backstories for like 20 OCs and we're hammering out the details. I'm still amused about how my character wasn't even created by me - he just sprung to life.

+ I haven't written fic in a while - I have a great pile of fics in various state of unfinished laying around -, but I made a vid:

I'm actually really proud of it. I premiered it at the con I run with my friends and people even danced.

+ Cons! We're running another one in November, since around 400 people showed up the first time. We're also doing a party. Because we're that awesome.

+ I have pretty hair now! It's red and amazing.

Also I'm a dork.

+ OTW! So I still feel weird about addressing people publicly in my... official capacity or something. I'm considering creating a serious DW account because if I do start talking about what I do in more detail, I don't think people will want to wade through me talking about my hair.

That said, I'm in Support now. And I should do some tickets. >.> Category Change exists, seriously exists. I'm having... well, not as much of a hard time as I thought I'd have as the lead. I mean, it's still in the early stages of work and I'm still learning what I'm supposed to do, but overall, I actually feel really supported.

+ College! I'm taking classes again and it's really weird. Also god I want this to end. Some day.

+ RL Volunteering! Oooh, still so rewarding.

+ Life! Still really complicated in many ways, but I guess it'll always be.

So! You may have heard of the OTW - Organization for Transformative Works -. It's a non-profit organization run by fans that wants to help fandom in all its forms - when fandom wants it, of course -. Among other projects, the OTW handles the Archive of Our Own, an fanfic archive that accepts every kind of fic - RPF, anime, manga, TV series, movies, comics, video games, ice cream flavours... - and that's completely funded by donations. No ads! There's also the Open Doors project, that's available for fic archives which are in danger of going under, Fanlore - a wiki about fandom -, etc.

I've been a tag wrangler at the AO3 for a few years now and this year I became a staffer - that is, a volunteer with more responsibility -. If you're ever interested, there are many ways to help. (Tag Wrangling is easy! And doesn't take that much time! Many fandoms need people who can take care of the tags.)

I know many people have issues with the AO3 and the OTW in general, and this is your chance to give feedback! We're doing a survey right now that covers ... many, many things, to try and figure out what people think of the OTW. :)
