The next Fandom Classic on my list is Project Sunflower, which clocks in at over 200,000 words. Since (due to work/con last week) I just started reading it on Tuesday... yeah, I'm not close to done yet. I'm pretty sure I can finish in time to review it on Monday, though! In the meantime, here are a few odds and ends to see you through the next 72 hours:
1) You've probably already seen it bandied about elsewhere, but Obs is running a contest: write a story with one or more ideas which are traditionally derided as awful. As is my curse, I came up with an idea yesterday that I kind of liked... but which I don't think I have any chance of getting it done in time. Oh, well; it should still be fun to see some other authors' takes on it.
2) You know what's a good feeling? When you take a look at your FiMFiction profile and find that you've got half a dozen new notifications... and when you go to see what they are, you find that someone has, over the course of several hours, read and favorited half of your stories. That's happened to me a few times (and once recently, hence why I'm mentioning it here), and it always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to think that someone just blew an afternoon binging on--and enjoying!--something(s) I wrote.
3) I watched a World Cup game on Thursday. Well, it was on in the same room as I was in, anyway; I think I'm to stereotypically American to enjoy soccer. And while I realize this is a minority opinion, I thought the vuvuzelas from last time around really added something. They made the event feel more exotic and spectacle-ish, you know? Ah well, maybe not caring about it will give me more time to write about my alicorn OC and/or finish reading this fanfic.
