RESPICE FINEM (5/27 01:59pm): Thank you everyone for the B-day wishes! smile Im having fun today with longsword and dagger fighting. Best birthday ever!
trilliumjente (5/27 01:29pm): swifthorse, I often let my mood pick the scene I want to draw or paint. I was extremely angry when I started the drawing of Buffy with Faith's knife, and I was feeling very happy & romantic when I started the Spuffy OMWF drawing.
HCB (5/27 01:26pm): Me too, it's gorgeous.
swifthorse (5/27 01:07pm): Thank you HCB! big grin I love the lighting of that gif.
HCB (5/27 12:33pm): Bugger, the other urls are too big.
HCB (5/27 12:30pm): Ideas:
swifthorse (5/27 12:17pm): HCB, lighting/colors are the most fun for me to practice.
swifthorse (5/27 12:16pm): HCB, hmmm, faces and bodies and hair are all good things to practice. Hands as well! Usually, I don't mind practicing multiple things within a piece since I can focus on practicing individual parts when doing sketches and the sort.
HCB (5/27 12:04pm): Have you thought about what you would like to draw artistically rather than emotionally? i.e. just faces, faces and bodies, hands, hair, etc?
swifthorse (5/27 11:39am): Sunalso, that was the original plan but then I realized I loved too many moments and overwhelmed myself with the possibilities so I thought I'd get some outside ideas to help narrow my ideas down. XD
Sunalso (5/27 11:15am): @swifthorse I'd pick your favorite moment from the show to start with and go from there- either to use directly or to draw inspiration from
swifthorse (5/27 10:36am): Trying to get an idea of what I should paint for my first BtVS fan art -- any suggestions on scenes, moods, etc?
DeamonQueen (5/27 09:53am): Happy bday RESPICE FINEM and Janie... best wishes to you both!
-Carrie-Ann- (5/27 08:12am): You are very welcome HCB x
DauntlessGrace (5/27 06:59am): Happy birthday RESPICE FINEM and Janie!
HCB (5/27 06:40am): Thanks once again to -Carrie-Ann- for my newly spruced banner: I'm going to try to write the next instalment over the weekend. big grin
-Carrie-Ann- (5/27 05:25am): Happy birthday to RESPICE FINEM and Janie x
-Carrie-Ann- (5/27 05:15am): Aww, thanks Elianne x
annamatte (5/27 04:16am): Happy birthday RESPICE FINEM and Janie! Have a great day!
HCB (5/27 03:38am): Also, wow, you can make something that looks like that? That's very impressive.
HCB (5/27 03:38am): I found a picture of one just like it:
HCB (5/27 03:34am): LadyPeyton: I don't think that that would be weird at all, I think that it would be lovely. The favourite present my dad ever received - it was a leaving present from work - was a orange xylophone on wheels for me. It was so cool. Also, it showed that they had thought about what he would like. smile
Sigyn (5/27 03:22am): Happy happy, Respice and Janie.
Kate of Katehall (5/27 03:08am): Happy birthday, RESPICE FINEM and Janie!
Elianne (5/27 03:02am): It was almost two of weeks ago, but still wanted to say that🙄

New Genres

Hi everyone,

Just a short note to let you know that new genres have been added. The list of fic genres had not been updated in some time (possibly forever). The new additions came from a request in the suggestion box (brought forth from discussion on the Shoutbox) because the connotations attached to some older fandom terms has changed. We also added a few because, well, we just needed them. 

The addition of new genres does not mean that existing ones have been removed or changed. I repeat, no existing genres have been deleted or modified. They're all still there. We've just added new ones, to give writer's more options for labelling/sorting their fic. If the new genres are utilised, that will also make it easier for readers to search for more specific criteria. 

The new genre options are as follows: Dark, Humor, Lighthearted, Erotica, Hurt/Comfort, Vignette.

A New Beginning... (Or Maybe not)

4/1/16 Edit: Well, I guess our switch to an all Rangel site didn't go over as planned... April Fools! Of course the jig is up and it was all a joke. We know we put all this up before April 1 in the USA, where the majority of our members live. However, don't forget that 2 of our mods are Australian, and since it was April 1 for them, we technically weren't cheating innocent.

Thanks to all our members for playing along. We got some themed submissions, which was awesome and unexpected, and we had many lurky members comment and shout about our "new theme". We hope to keep hearing from you! Don't keep quiet until next year when we make this place a Clem/Teeth the loan shark archive wink.

An enormous thank you goes to javajunkie247, who played along with our insane...

Shoutbox Odds and Ends

Just a quick note to keep you all informed without clogging up the shoutbox. Speaking of the shoutbox, a suggestion was added recently about it, and it prompted me to add a couple new features, and finally fix some glitches that had been around for a while.

First, the fixes:

  • Links wouldn't work properly if they were directly followed by punctuation (e.g. or if they had more than one instance of http:// within them (e.g. These should no longer be an issue.
  • Multiple presses of the shout button frequently resulted in duplicate shouts. Some new behind the scenes code should now remedy this.

Now, the new items:

  • If you're reading on the shout archive page, you can now shout directly from there instead of having to click back to the home page. You'll see the shout text input at the top of the page.
  • If you want to catch up...
