DOCTOR STRANGE: we have a discussion post HERE. Please play nice and don't post spoilers anywhere on the comm, keep them on the discussion post. (Nope, I have no idea if this will affect Clint or Natasha or how it'll impact the MCU as a whole, because I haven't seen it yet, but hey, new Marvel film!)

RECS: [livejournal.com profile] meatball42 posted a rec list this week - check it out :) Don't forget that we like ALL THINGS Cint and/OR Natasha in these parts, anything with one or both of our assassins in, all pairings and team fic and what have you welcome, and we definitely love recs. What're you been reading or spotted recently? Let us know in the comments or feel free to do some rec posts of your own.

IN THE WIDER WORLD WIDE WEB: Marvel Big Bang is in the middle of posting. I have no idea what else is going on - probably something with YuleTide - give us a shout in the comments and let us know what's happening and what seasonal fun you're all involved with!

A couple of things to note )

CIVIL WAR: has arrived and our discussion post is over here! Please don’t discuss the new film anywhere else on the comm until we announce otherwise (after the film has been released worldwide and people have had a chance to see it) so that people can avoid spoilers if they want to.

ALL THE THINGS FRIDAY: You can sign up to host, suggest ideas, and see what’s coming up at our sign up post. No hosts on the post means not ATTF, so do come and play – we have spaces for the 20th May onwards. And as a heads up, this Friday our community will be four years old! So we’ll be having a good old fashioned getting-to-know-you friending type party ATTF :D

IN THE WIDER WORLD WIDE WEB: Marvel Big Bang is in business for 2016 with lots of options for taking part - sign ups are open for authors until 15th May, sign ups for artists are open until 3rd September, and tandem sign ups until 15th May. Het Big Bang sign ups are open for authors until 17th May and they’re also after artists, beta readers, and cheerleaders. Heroine Big Bang is back in business – look out for a revised/new schedule. There’s also Femme Remix accepting nominations until 8th May, Every Woman accepting nominations, and an LBGT Fest accepting prompts until 31st May. And probably more things that I’ve not spotted!

ALL THE THINGS FRIDAY: We're starting this again - that's our Friday party posts that carry on into the weekend - THIS FRIDAY with Three Sentence Fics. Ask and ye shall receive ;) That means we also need VOLUNTEERS for hosting future Fridays - further information and sign up sheet HERE. If there's no one signed up to a Friday, that means it doesn't happen, so run don't walk!

REMIX EXCHANGE: We had one of these back in 2014 and keep your eyes peeled, because we're looking at doing this again towards the end of this month/start of April. A remix is, essentially, fanfiction of fanfiction. You create a fanfic using someone else’s fanfic as a starting point. Examples of remixes include writing the story from another character’s perspective, an interlude between scenes, taking the fic in another direction after a certain point (what if this character did X instead of Y?), etc. Further informaton on the way!

IN THE WIDER WORLD WIDE WEB: There's a new Black Widow comic just started, by Mark Waid, Chris Samnee, and Matthew Wilson. Marvel Is Marvel gift exchange sign ups are open. This year's [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon is now closed; have a nosey for things relevant to our interests, like this female-centric fanvid recs from [livejournal.com profile] streussal featuring Natasha and other Marvel ladies.
