Whee! We're getting close, we're getting warmed up, and we're going to rock this thing.

1. The drabble tree is awesome, but needs you and your genius to make it fuller and bushier and verdant and all. We've tended to the wonderfully longish so far, but writing of any length is very welcome. Also, where's the Fraser/Vecchio love?

2. At this comm, most pimpable stuff (interview memes, drabble tree) should be open and most squee and plotting and seekrit discussions should be flocked. You guys are encouraged to post, suggest topics of discussion, add Team Romance art, or any such participatory action.

3. We need backup writers on our team! Backup writers are awesome because, on the extremely tiny and improbable chance that anybody can't make their fic deadline, a backup writer could already have fic written for that prompt. If no such need arises, we get to enjoy their fic at the end of the challenge. Seriously, WHAT is better than that? Feel free to poke your friends in the ribs until they volunteer to be backup writers for Team Romance.

4. Anybody who hasn't already introduced themself at the first getting to know you post can do so in this post, as can anybody who is or wants to be a backup writer. Hi! *beckons*

The getting to know you questions are

1. While engaged in goodnatured team rivalry, I seem to have unilaterally decided that Dief is our team mascot. Dief the matchmaker, Dief the florist, Dief the sweet-toothed. What do you think? Alternative suggestions accepted with glee.

2. How long have you been writing in due South?

3. Do you usually write romantic fic, would you say?

4. On a scale from A LOT to OMG SO MUCH to EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, how much do our boys love each other?

5. Will we destroy Team Angst with kindness, porniness, sweetness, or humor? Will we bring them to their knees with the power of love?

6. Oh, and how about posting a link to your fic? Share your work with the rest of us.

In conclusion, the competition will be fierce, but Team Romance has LOVE and KISSING on its side. We're going to kick some angsty ass. *beams*

Hi all. I am a backup writer. If I'm the first backup writer, I'd really like for this to mean I get to lord my status over future backup writers and make them do my bidding. If I'm not first, then that is clearly a foolish plan.
Look, questions!
1. Does that mean we don't get the turtle? I also like the turtle.
2. Um...since operation lost zebra.
3. Yes'm. I heart happy endings.
4. ohmygodtheyloveeachothersomuchthattheirlovemustbeexpressedwithoutspaces
5. Fucking A.
6. Oh man, I'm too lazy for that right now. Check my journal for today's date and you'll find 2/3 of the fic I've written. Go go if you wish.

I want to see Dief the florist.

*is useless at drabble trees...*

I used to but it has been years since I last saw it (don't even have it on DVD). These days I tend to wallow in the early seasons only to get my shipping fix ;-)

So thanks for that snippet of information. Very useful. There needs to be more florist!Dief fic *nods*.

I will try and bring some F/V fic to the tree at the moment I am just awfully confused by it ;-)

I was thinking it might get us further into that romance-writing mood and give us things to draw upon when we actually start the writing process if we posted about what we see as the most romantic moments in canon. Little gestures, big sweeping gestures, tiny private smiles--whatever. I suppose we could try a group viewing and chat (maybe people could vote for the most romantic ep?), though we're a bit short on time for that.

Also, we need a romantic soundtrack! Team Angst already has one, and is working on a SECOND one. We cannot allow this! Romantic, sexy, porny songs? We need those!!

I could be a back-up writer, if you'll have me :)

Understood. I can defriend from that comm ASAP.

Hey, I'm back-up writering here!

1. Dief wins.

2. Been writing for... 2 years now. Although my output hasn't exactly been prolific.

3. My writing so far has involved romance. And porn. There's always room for porn.

4. EE x 10 to the 34th?

5. It'll just be obvious! The general happy, feel-good, love-dovey-ness will obviously triumph over the dark, black soul-destroying pit of angst and despair. And we have Dief.

6. OK: here's some porn (http://community.livejournal.com/stop_drop_porn/14850.html), and the first dS fic I ever wrote (http://community.livejournal.com/ds_flashfiction/364487.html), two years ago...

Hello!

I am a back-up writer :)

1 - Dief for sure!

2 - Not too long. Maybe a year. I've only written three stories (so far).

3 - Romance. Schmoop. Mini-woe, but only to make the schmoop pop. And of course, porn.

4 - Infinity 'EEE'

5 - Happy!Porn always wins out over Emo!Porn. And we will win with grace and humility - Fraser would expect nothing less :)

6 - The journal is still in the 'pretty-me-up' stage, but my three fics can be found at [livejournal.com profile] dragonfly_fic.

I have fallen in love with Team Romance. Fitting, I feel.

I so wish I could play, but if I did, I'd have to be like, very last on the back-up writer totem poll, because I've only ever written.. um, "two" dS stories. And even that is.. complicated. XD

But I'm very tempted to make icons! Hee.

Anyway, just saying. Hearts for you all. :D

Hello! I am a backup-backup writer. Hee.

1. While engaged in goodnatured team rivalry, I seem to have unilaterally decided that Dief is our team mascot. Dief the matchmaker, Dief the florist, Dief the sweet-toothed. What do you think? Alternative suggestions accepted with glee.

I am so all for this that it is kinda sad. DIEF!!

2. How long have you been writing in due South?

Um, heh. A couple months? ;P (This would be why I am backup to the backup.)

3. Do you usually write romantic fic, would you say?

Totally. And I usually tend to infuse it with a lot - a LOT - of humour. I basically need laughter, love, and happy endings.

4. On a scale from A LOT to OMG SO MUCH to EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, how much do our boys love each other?

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! :D

5. Will we destroy Team Angst with kindness, porniness, sweetness, or humor? Will we bring them to their knees with the power of love?

Mmm, porn. Um, I mean: yes indeed!

6. Oh, and how about posting a link to your fic? Share your work with the rest of us.

Ahaaahaha. Ahem. Here. (http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bml?user=snoopypez&keyword=Fic+by+me&filter=all) Gotta warn you, though. Only one is due South, and it's kind of.. um, cracktastic? Yeah.
