As you know, I am HUGE into SPN right now and thought, hmm. Maybe we should do some kind of internet thing where a bunch of us could get together and have fun. And this is what we came up with.
We're thinking of having a summer Supernatural chat/party thing. We're actually fairly positive and upbeat fans about the show, and we'd love to be able to chat it up and have some fun with other fans who are going nuts waiting for Season 4 to arrive ;)
Some ideas we have so far:
**Watch an episode or two (based on a poll that we'll post later)
**Maybe some fic prompts and have people racing to finish drabbles based on the theme
**General chat where we can talk about the show and relax
**Maybe a screencap or art project for people talented in that area
And we're open to suggestions.
We'd only have a few caveats. Since we want as many people to come as possible, we would appreciate no spoilers, RPS, Wincest, or anything too graphic like in R and NC-17 way. This isn't a dig to anyone who likes the above, but if we keep it gen and the rating a little lower, we can include more people that way :)
The goal is really to have a fun place free of wank. Me? I'm a Dean fan, but I love the other characters. Meg? She's a Sam fan and she loves the other characters too. And we get along! *gasp shock horror* So, I think fans of all kinds could come and have a blast :)
The chat would be hosted on meg_tdj's forum:
All you need is a free Delphi account. Sometimes it can be a little buggy, but my computer from doom can handle it, so I figure most people should be fine. If you have any problems at all, meg_tdj knows a few magic tricks that can help you out. We will start promoting it around some if there is enough interest, and the chatroom can hold quite a few people. We really are trying to stay away from the wankier side of fandom, though, so we haven't ironed out exactly where we'll promote it.
We're still planning, and it's really contingent on how many people might be interested. Right now, we have a tentative date for Friday, June 20 maybe around 6pm EST or earlier or later depending on what works better for people, but we can change if it's too inconvenient for a lot of people. We're never going to find a date and time that's perfect for everyone, but we'd like to at least please the majority.
Thoughts and suggestions wanted!! Please either contact me or meg_tdj with any thoughts, questions, or concerns. We're excited and want to make this work. We've done similar ones before with other shows, so it can be done. :)
(Btw, feel free to pimp this around in your own LJ's and gage any interest your friends might have, but since we're still planning, we'd appreciate it if you didn't start publicizing it in different comms yet. Thanks!)
