Junk Food Junkies, rejoice!

Your humble narrator was once a happy member of [livejournal.com profile] trashy_eats, before departing LJ altogether for greener, less-censored pastures. Having seen a post on the Book of Face that needed to be shared, she went to see if [community profile] trashy_eats existed...only to discover that nothing had been done with the community since it was originally created seven years ago, and that the two other members listed are no longer active to request that the community be transferred.

This, she thought, simply will not do.

...

I promise I don't always write in the third person. Join me in [community profile] trashy_eats_too, won't you?

Writers' Cafe

[community profile] writerscafe is a new writers' comm—explicitly queer-, trans-, and disabled-inclusive, feminist, and anti-racist—meant for people writing pretty much anything at all to get community support, craft advice, and (every Friday) a social hour. Come join us!

50books_poc: Writers of Color 50 Books Challenge turns ten years old this month

This month marks the ten-year anniversary of book review community [community profile] 50books_poc, which started on LiveJournal and migrated to Dreamwidth. From the profile description:
The point of this comm is to read works by people of color. (Preferably fifty of them! Or more!)

There are three ways to participate in the comm. Choose what best suits you:

  • Do the 50 Books Challenge: read fifty books by authors of color in the course of a year. Read your books, count your books, and post your write-ups/reviews/impressions.
  • Do a variant of the challenge: commit to fifty books, but take more than a year if you need to. Or read fifty poems or short stories in a year. Or don't set a target number, but keep count of the books by authors of color that you read in a year. Or some other variant that makes sense for you and pushes you to read more authors of color.
  • Skip the counting/challenge aspect, but post recommendations and/or reviews, and otherwise encourage people to read works by authors of color.

    Basically, we just want people to read works by authors of color. We’re pretty open to any degree of participation that furthers that end. We don't even care which books you read, so long as they're written by authors of color. You can read fun books. Easy books. Books that make you happy. Books that get your kink on. They just have to be by authors of color.

With 1500+ entries and 500+ structured tags, the comm offers a ton of recommendations in the archives.

We had a slowdown in 2013 or 2014-2017, but this year a number of participants have been reviving the comm with reviews and discussion of, for instance, Aziz Ansari's Modern Romance, Alaya Dawn Johnson's The Summer Prince, and Colson Whitehead's The Underground Railroad. Come join us!

Outlander Forum -- new community!

Calling all fans of the Outlander books and/or TV series!

I don't have any clever graphics because I am not a clever-graphics person, but with the season 3 premiere fast approaching (September 10!), I invite all Outlander fans to join [community profile] outlander_forum, a discussion community for fans of the Starz TV adaptation and/or Diana Gabaldon's books. Please note that at this time, this is aiming to be purely a discussion forum, not a forum for fanworks (icons, fanfic, etc.) as there are other venues for that. This might change down the road, but for now, the focus will be on discussing the show, the books, and related issues.

All welcome!

smallbatchicons: a communal icon community.



small batch icons is dedicated to the idea that less is more.

Much like how the restriction of a hundred words can turn a drabble into a work of art, so our theory is that a posting limit of five icons makes the selected images shine.

For icon makers, this makes coding posts way easier. Plus, there's the bonus of getting to share icons more often, hot off the press.

For icon shoppers, it's the ultimate in browsing convenience.

Pod Save America

Three former aides to President Obama — Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, and Tommy Vietor — started a media empire they named "Crooked Media," a hat-tip to Donald Trump. Their flagship podcast is Pod Save America, a freewheeling conversation about politics, the press, and the challenges posed by the Trump presidency.

Hang out at [community profile] podsaveamerica to discuss this podcasts and others by Crooked Media - Pod Save the People, Pod Save the World, Lovett or Leave It, and With Friends Like These.

In this community, we'll have discussion posts about each podcast. Talk about the guests, the conversations, whatever grievances were aired during the ads (lol). We'll also have posts about targeted activism. For example, during Resistance Recesses, you can discuss in the comments if/what you did. (The podcasts themselves frequently suggest specific action items for listeners.)


Listen to all of the podcasts, or just 1 or 2. No pressure.

New icon challenge community [community profile] 10variations!



I created [community profile] 10variations for Dreamwidth because it was an old concept from Livejournal that I used to love and many people felt inspired by, and I thought it would be nice to recreate it for a better, safer and cleaner platform like Dreamwidth :3

It's a community where you post a batch of 10 icons each time, made out of the same image but all different (according to a set of themes). It's best if you look at the profile to understand the concept! I hope you will like it and participate, I will participate also :3

MORAY BEACH

OPENING JUNE 15
Welcome to Moray Beach
Maybe you were having an ordinary day, doing ordinary things.
Or, maybe, your day was in fact extraordinary, and you're kind of busy and, really, don't have time for any nonsense.
Unfortunately, all of that is gone.
Welcome to Moray Beach. Welcome to your fresh start.
18+ | multigenre | multifandom


Moray Beach is a game set on a tropical island paradise populated entirely by displaced characters. Through some glitch of time and space, they have ended up here, and here they will stay for as long as the island wills it.

A game for mature and seasoned players, it follows basic tenants of fun, respect, and honesty. Player anonymity is protected without question, and abusive and dramatic behaviour will not be tolerated. The goal is low moderation, high activity, and a place for all of us to just, well, play.

Whether you're looking for serious plot, horror or thriller storylines, or even just slice-of-life hijinks, Moray Beach will accommodate you.
