Chat today

lifeonmartha will be hosting a fandom chat this afternoon/evening (2 pm Est/7pm UK). The chat typically runs for approximately three hours, and feel free to drop in whenever.

It will be held on AIM in a chat room named lifeonmartha. Here's a tutorial on how to join the room without an invite.

For this chat, we will be following a dicussion topic for the first part of the chat. Our topic for today will be Martha and fan fiction: What do we like? What do we not like? and What do we want to see more of in our fan fic? We will be discussing cliches and trends that are happening in fics that feature the lovely Miss Jones. Also, the attendees of the chat will get a small preview of our ficafest lifeonmartha will be hosting for the holiday season.

I hope to see you all there!

The Shadowlings news


I posted this on my journal, but I thought I'd post it here and on smith_n_jones as well.
I  have bad news for those who were looking forward to my latest Doctor Who fic, the Shadowlings. I've decided to put that on hold while I pursue a novel I've been working on for too long (actually, neglecting too long is more accurate). Fan fiction is fun, but I really want to do my own thing, and concentrate on that. I'd share snippets with you, but I'm wary of sharing original stuff, lest it gets stolen by someone before I can get it officially copywritten and protected.

I will most likely finish that fic, just not in the immediate future. I'm so sorry if I have disappointed anyone.

Discussion: Martha and fan fiction

Today in chat we had a very interesting discussion about Martha in fan fic, and I thought it'd be interesting to bring it here to discuss it with our members at large as well.

So, what do you like about fan fiction featuring Martha? What do you not like?

What kinds of fics do you wish people would write more of, or just write period?

Are there any fic cliches featuring Martha that you're starting to see in lots of fics? Do you like them, or not?

What do you think?

Also, if any good fics featuring Martha come up, don't forget to rec them at our Martha ship rec post and our Martha Gen fic rec post.

This story is dedicated to domsbabygrl who allowed me to brainstorm my plot ideas with her via MSN and threw in one or two of her own ! Thanks hon !!

Thanks must also go to syreene for letting me shamelessly steal her alien possession plot idea from under her nose. Of course, I've since twisted, folded, spindled and mutilated it, so she may not recognise much of it !
