22 – Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favorite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?

Until I fell in love, or at least obsession, with Legend of the Seeker and got an LJ account, I didn't even know what fests and Big Bangs were. Since then, of course, I've signed up for every one I can find and feel I have a reasonable chance of completing - the Feelings Fest on [ profile] lots_femslash, the [ profile] seekerrarepair exchange, the Reverse Mini Bang on [ profile] lotseekerfic, [ profile] dark_fest, and at least one mini big bang alt on [ profile] legendland. My favorite experience...probably a tie between
The Unravelling or the Perils of Powerful Magic
, for [ profile] legendland, which was just plain fun to write, and most recently Hope, for the [ profile] lotseekerfic Reverse Mini Bang, which was intense, but which gave me things to think about that I'm still trying to fully process.

In some ways, having a prompt and a deadline like that can be such a blessing, because it helps motivate me to actually finish. And at least one of my [ profile] dark_fest stories I wrote after a mini dry spell, the first thing I'd felt really positive about in what felt like forever. (I started typing and literally didn't stop until I finished - it was emotional.)

Also, I enjoy things like that because they help me feel part of a larger community, and overcome my shyness about posting things I'm not quite sure about. (The downside being when I sign up for too many projects at once, of course.)

rest of the days )
hrhrionastar: (jennsen)
Title: The Eye of the Storm
Pairing: Jennsen/Denna
Rating: PG-13
Length: 3325
Warnings: honestly, I can't think of any. If the show doesn't squick you, this won't.
Spoilers: whole series
Summary: Combined the [ profile] legendland hiatus challenge with two prompts from [ profile] dark_fest: any, any, Don't worry, I know the way to Hell, I'll walk my own self there and Legend, Jennsen/Denna, "How can I let you touch me when you killed my mother?" Jennsen saves a life, against her better judgment - and is less than prepared for the consequences.


It wasn't that I sought to spare Denna pain...that would be ridiculous. )
