{ exciting things ahead }  
As I'm sure you're all aware, LiveJournal completely failed a few weeks ago and- obviously unable to function as a result- I did what any distressed fangirl would do when unable to get her fanfic fix, I went searching for an alternate source of sustenance! Of course, this led me to fall back on bad habits and I seem to have found myself drowning in the flood of bad fic that seems to permanently swamp fanfiction.net for the last few weeks whilst trying to find the good stuff. Ahem. It seemed like a good idea at the time, I swear! Thankfully, I've since managed to regain my senses and backed as quickly away from that site as is possible. It feels good to be home!


Now that I'm back though I have a gazillion things to catch up on (HOW'S IT GOING GUYS?! WHAT HAVE I MISSED?!) and obligations to fulfil (AE_ANGST GUYS AM SO SORRY FOR MY FAIL. MAKING IT UP TO YA'LL ASAP!!) but mostly I have a Tribe Meetup to finish organising (ASDFGHJK THIS IS WHY BEXY IS THE HEAD OF COMMUNICATION GUYS. I AM ONLY GOOD AT TEMPTATION OMG).

So, tribe girlies, the rest of this is for you!

Tribe Meet Up:
+ Where: The Cardiff Branch (aka, Keira's flat <33)
+ When: Weekend of 3rd-4th September 
+ What: just bring yourself and possibly a sleeping bag too. But if you can, please also bring bad Sy-Fy-esque movies- the only stipulation being they have to have HOT MAN THINGS in them. I've already tagsed bringing "Minotaur" starring Tom Hardy ;D muhahaha (edt, if the movie is too ridiculously bad, however, please feel free to blame Georgie since she linked me to it in the first place!! :P)
+ Who: Confirmed girlied so far include:
- Bexy
- Caspe
- Clare
- Dawn
- Georgie
- Julie
- Keira
- Shaz
- Stacey

If your name is on the list above- congratulations! :D- you get to come to the meetup! If your name is not on the list you've been fired! or I've forgotten you (my bad? :S) and you still want to come, please lemme know asap as er... spaces are pretty tight so the more advance notice we can give poor Keira, the better! XD

edt: guys, The Cardiff Branch is now full up, so if you're not on the list above, whilst you're still welcome to join in the madness, I'm afraid alternate accommodation will need to be arranged as Keira (bless her so hard for this!) can only squeeze nine of us into the flat this time round! <33

If your name is not on the list you've been fired!

*cries* (Also, you should totally watch Minotaur. I don't think Vincent Ventresca takes his shirt off but he and his daughter - Summer Glau - fight the prehistoric mammoth that has been resurrected by aliens and is running rampant around Louisiana sucking souls out through it's trunk. Does that fit the badness?)

I went to AO3, the quality of fic average is slightly higher! There is good stuff on ff.net but you have to practically excavate to find the flipping things!

ASDFGHJK that sounds perfect! XD and he totally fits the hot manthing part too ;D hehe. The highlights of last years tribe meet were watching Misha's Stonehenge Apocalypse and GDL's Sherlock Holmes XD XD XD

Well see, AO3 was my plan, right up until the site went down! I think it was only for a few hours but it was during the hours I wanted fic and so... I got sucked into the badness and couldn't escape! I've read some truly awful Harry Potter fic as a result, but- and I'm not gonna lie- I was kind of loving it XD it is good to be back though!

::clings to it too::

:D eeeee so looking forward to see you girls again! a year is way too long to go between visits!!

I've managed to get the Sat-Mon off but depending on flights might make it down for Friday evening :D

You say that like Minotaur was your idea and your idea alone :p

I realised that I forgot to put in a holiday request before I left work for two weeks holiday...hmmm shall get to that as soon as i get back into work.

With you on the bad fic :/ I am steering well away from ff.net for as long as I possibly can.

Can't wait to see you ::hugs::
Campaspe: Leverage \\ OT3; concs_whitewolf on August 9th, 2011 08:30 pm (UTC)
I have now appropriately credited you :P

asdfghjk get it done omg! O_O you can't *not* come now that you're on the list!

haha omg. I was dying for some good ol' Harry Potter fic and... well... ff.net was a bad idea, but also oddly kind of worth it XD

eee me too! ::snugs:: missed the tribe so hard.

If your name is not on the list you've been fired!

*evil laughter*
...please tell me as head of communications it's not my job to inform people that you've fired them?

I'll see what I can find in the way of bad sci-fi movies.

Well, since I started this I guess I can fire people myself. But next time you're totally incharge of this whole organizing thingamabob, you hear?

I've just been recommended "Mammoth" ;D it sounds like it could be right up our street hahaha

Erin Giles: tribe - cardiff brancherin_giles on August 9th, 2011 09:07 pm (UTC)
Can I just jump in at this point and say I don't think I can fit anymore than 9 of us in really as unfortunately (or fortunately for me) I have more furniture than I did last time you guys visited and therefore less floor space.

But yay!! TRIBE MEET UP!!
Campaspe: Mood \\ (hp) mischeviouscs_whitewolf on August 9th, 2011 09:23 pm (UTC)
Okay! I don't think anyone else is coming but just incase will put up that we're full for your place! <33 thanks so much for housing us again ;) we'll totally make it worth your while, honest!

LJ keeling over was reason 32 why I love my kindle. At least had some good fanfic on it:)

Yay meet up:)

I vote

Ferocious Planet It has both badness and pretty:)

Campaspe: Doctor Who \\ 8; jellybebbies!cs_whitewolf on August 10th, 2011 11:46 pm (UTC)
I'll need to get around to putting fanfic on my kindle for this very reason! Else I'll be too tempted to read badfic on my phone again XD

LMAO I don't even know omg. Also, loving how none of the locals are Scottish XD haha

Two guesses why you want that one! haha. Although, that "Don't poke the alien" line totally wins for me and I think you should bring it!! :D

I want to come but if I can't stay in the flat I can't really come then. Too skint for hotel
Campaspe: Mood \\ (cm); O NOES!cs_whitewolf on August 10th, 2011 11:52 pm (UTC)
D: I'm really sorry, darling! I thought you were going to get back to me about coming since you weren't sure you would have the money? I'm sorry if I misinterpreted your comment (omg this is why I never plan things!), please don't hate me!? I can let you know if anyone pulls out, if that helps any? But I know it's a squeeze just getting nine people into the flat the now and adding another is just not possible. :S

Lol congrats! You did say in my last tribe post that you could make it so I assumed nothing had changed XD

As I've said, I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it. If I can, it'll only be for a day rather than the whole weekend. I won't need accommodation either way. Fingers crossed I can be there for a few hours at the very least!
Campaspe: Mood \\ (rp) nose scrunchcs_whitewolf on August 14th, 2011 12:25 pm (UTC)
We'd love to have you, bb! Even if it's only for a couple of hours :D ::snugs:: the more of the tribe we can get together the better!
