February 2016: Year Two Review!

Postby Whitney » Wed Feb 03, 2016 4:30 pm

Holy mother of Gawd and all her wacky nephews -- where in hell did 2015 go???

We're probably all asking that same question, and left scratching our heads... I think I stopped to sneeze, and lost the back half of the year...

Here's a quick summary of what we actually got posted to the website in 2015:

* Fic: Storm Warning
* Fic: Collecting Strays
* Fic: Boomer
* Fic: Working It Out
* Filk: The Jin Dui's Theme Song
* Art: four portraits of Hoss by Stacy
* Art: "The Cupcake Wars Begin" (Ciaran & Hoss) by Louise
* Art: portraits of Deadwood crime bosses Augustus Van Hooven & Darius (guest artist GI Ace)
* Art: portraits of Captain Cooper & Marcus Change (guest artist GI Ace)
* Art: Odin, ship's guard dog (guest artist Catzei)
* Art: Greenleaf Threshers logo by Stacy
* Art: Passing Time Aboard (Tilly & Cooper) by Brouwer
* Art: Making Repairs (Ciaran & Sully) by Louise
* Art: Out For A Walk (Captain Cooper) (guest artist Slavetothemocha)
* Art: Babs (Captain Cooper's cat) (guest artist WesternSpice)
* Art: Captain Cooper (guest artist Ryxiall)

Technically, I believe there's another fic or three that was finished last year, but still hasn't been posted? If you've finished something in 2015 and its not in that list, ping me!

Making a list that's long enough to scroll through cheers me up some about an otherwise quiet year. I'd love your feedback on what you'd like to see us concentrate on this year, and what you'd most like to see in 2016!

Speakin' for myself here, on what I'd really like to see in 2016:

1) I want to get my plotted & half-started fics all finished. Galactic Cowboys, Truth & Dare, Favor Points, the sequel to "Aftermath", something about Tilly's first couple of days, Haunted Forest, etc. If I can get those older plotlines written and resoloved, I deserve a cookie. Or maybe a chocolate croissant. (A box of Voodoo Donuts, maybe...)

2) I want to get the Sturges group collab done.

3) I want to see us have art completed for each member of the crew. Hell -- if we could get a single piece of art with the whole crew (plus maybe even a goat or two), I'd be in seventh heaven.


Two of our weaknesses in 2015 I'd like to address in some fashion:

A) I don't feel like players know each other at all, except for the folks who've already bummed around together in previous fandoms (you know who you are). I want to see what we can do to make this more of a small community, whether players know one another and communicate with one another.

B) I want the website altered so that each individual player can upload their own art & fic.

I have two very modest goals: Update Abby's CIS to reflect the changes that we decided on a loooong time ago (Emphasis on law rather than medicine) and make the edits to her backstory... er... story, and get that up on the site.

(brains... I has none.)
