Based on th response to my last post, there is an interest to having a Babylon 5 Love Month some time this autumn. However, my RL situation for the rest of the year is starting to look so busy that I'm hesitant to commit to organise one. So I was wondering if anyone else might want to take over the reigns for the next round?

What you would need to do is:
  • Create a sign-up post and distribute the days
  • Promote the community
  • Arrange pinchitters (or make extra back-up contributions yourself) for days when somene's had to drop out
  • Make sure that everyone plays nice


So there's not that much effort required, but you would need to at least check on the community every day.

You can pick the length (two weeks or a whole month) and time of the fest based on what suits you best, and obviously I'd be around to answer any questions or problems you might have.

Any volunteers?

So, would there be any interest in a round of Babyln 5 loving this year? In August, perhaps?

I meant to do this post yesterday, but obviously didn't get around to it, so some oof you may have already seen the first part of our mini B5 fest:

Babylon 5 Love Fest Prompt meme

So go and leave prompts for all those fanworks that you wish existed.

The first rewatch post will go out in about 12 hours.

Also, as this might be of interest to some of you, I have also created a Tumblr mirror for this community where I will attempt to crosspost/link all the posts here:

People have now voted, and we have a list of episodes to watch. The results were divided pretty evenly between the seasons, so I've decided that we'll watch 3 episodes from each season (plus one Crusade episode and one movie), which includes all the episodes that had more than 2 votes, and couple of episodes that I picked with my modly powers from the ones that had 2 votes.

We'll watch episode per day, starting next Monday (so that I'll have time to schedule the posts). And here is the list of episodes:

12.1. And the Sky Full of Stars
13.1. By Any Means Necessary
14.1. Babylon Squared
15.1. The Coming of Shadows
16.1. Comes the Inquisitor
17.1. The Long, Twilight Struggle
18.1. Point of No Return
19.1. Severed Dreams
20.1. War Without End, Parts 1 & 2
21.1. The Long Night
22.1. Moments of Transition
23.1. The Face of the Enemy
24.1. The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father
25.1. And All My Dreams, Torn Asunder
26.1. The Fall of Centauri Prime
27.1. The River of Souls
28.1. The Well of Forever

Now that the holiday seasons (and Yuletide) are over, it's time to start on that small celebration of Babylon 5 that we were talking about a while ago.

Several people indicated that they'd be interested in a mini-rewatch, and I'm going to need your help for that:

In the comments, list 5-10 episodes that you'd like to be included in the rewatch (these can also include the movies or Crusade episodes).

These can be your favourite episodes, under-appreciated episodes, episodes that you think that might spark discussion...

The episodes that get most votes will then be included in the rewatch. If we don't get enough votes other episodes, we'll watch "Grey 17 Is Missing", "Infection", and "TKO". Consider this a warning.

(comments are screened)

You have time until Jan 6th, so please tell your friends to come over and vote as well!

Prompt memes and rewatches seemed to be the most popular idea for the next round, and the general consensus was that whatever we do, let's do it after Yuletide.

So let's start off the next year with a small celebration of Babylon 5. I'll post more details after Christmas :)

As [livejournal.com profile] nenya_kanadka reminded me, [livejournal.com profile] babylon5_love has also a collection at AO3, so if you're posting your work to AO3, please consider adding them to teh collection as well.

(also, I have couple of extra AO3 invites left, so if you need one, let me know)

Just a quick modly note that there are still six unclaimed days left (incl. August 1st), so now's your last chance to participate or to persuade a friend to sign up.
ruuger: My hand with the nails painted red and black resting on the keyboard of my laptop (Default)
[personal profile] ruuger
August is approaching fast and we've still got several unclaimed days, so now's the time to sign up as a contributor. I'm also opening the sign-ups for second claims, so if you want, you can now pick a second date

(and yes, if you're posting, say, a multipart fic, you can post one half on one day and the rest of the second)

Also, as always, please advertise the community everywhere you can, especially to new fans and in fannish spaces outside LJ! I can try to work something out to make it possible for people without LJs to participate as contributors.

Did you think that I had forgotten about this community? Well, actually I had.

In any case, would there be any interest in a Babylon 5 Love month this year? Maybe a special anniversary round to celebrate the 20th anniversary? Unfortunately August is the only month when I could run it.

[Poll #1915415]

People who have no LJ accounts, feel free to leave your votes anon in the comments. And if you ahve any ideas on how to make this round special, I'd love to hear them, too.

(also, [community profile] xf_is_love will also be running this year. Watch that space.)

Thank you once again to everyone who took part in [livejournal.com profile] babylon5_love, either as a contributor or as a watcher. We had fewer participants this year than on the last few rounds, but looking at the list of goodies posted, I'd say that we still rock pretty hard for a small and old fandom ;)

The masterlist )


And I again welcome you to add your works to our collection at AO3. If you don't have an account at AO3 but want one, give me your email and I can send you an invite.

...and Babylon 5 Love Month with it. Hopefully LJ is stable enough for everyone to read this :)

First, with all the problems that LJ has been having, I created a mirror of this community on Dreamwidth in case LJ goes down again: [community] babylon5_love. If you have signed up for the current round, you are free to crosspost your entry there on your claimed day (even if LJ is up).

I have several extra invites left for Dreamwidth, so if you don't have an account there and want one, let me know.

Second, we still have a handful of days left unclaimed, so there's still time to sign up or claim a second (or third) day. And if you don't want to commit to a specific day, you can always wait until the free-for-all weekend on September 1-4.

Third, a quick reminder to those who have signed up already:

  • Check the master list to make sure that I've marked you down for the correct day.

  • Make sure that you have joined as a member (and not just friended the community) so that I can give you the posting rights. If you're still lacking posting rights the weekend before your contribution is due, then you can go ahead and poke me.

  • Read the posting rules in the user info. We're not too strict here about the rules, as long as you remember three things:

    1. Only post on your day. You have from midnight to midnight on your day to do your posting - if you can't make it, let me know. I'm not going to ban people for posting one minute past their deadline, but please try to stick to your day or you'll make baby Kosh cry :( Note also that all off-topic posts will be deleted.
    2. Please don't spoil people. I know that the show has been off the air for years and years, but it would be wonderful if people could give warnings for major spoilers anyway as I know there are some people watching this community who have not yet finished the show. I'm especially hoping for people to warn for any spoilers for the books, Crusade and Legend of the Rangers because not everyone has had the chance to read/see them. Again, this is not a bannable offense, but a common courtecy.
    3. Warn for adult (NC-17) content. This is the only non-negotiable rule.

Fourth, let's get this show on the road, shall we. Next stop, Z'ha'dum. ;)

It's August 1st, so I would like to welcome everyone - members both old and new, contributors, watchers and lurkers - to the fifth(!) annual Babylon 5 Love Month.

I hope everyone has fun here the next month watching, reading, and admiring the creations our contributors will be sharing with us on their selected days. And don't forget to leave feedback to the writers and artists if you liked their work.

There are still six more days without contributors, so if you've been thinking of signing up, there is still time.

(also, if you've signed up, remember to join the community (instead of just friending it) so that I can give you the posting rights)

Hey everyone! It's again that time of the year when I start gauging for interest in another summer of [livejournal.com profile] babylon5_love - for the fifth year already.

[Poll #1553403]

I'm also open for any ideas for how to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Love Month.

And in case there are people here who like certain other scifi classic as well, in June I'm also running [livejournal.com profile] xf_is_love, which is much like B5 Love Month, only for The X-Files and with every participant claiming a specific episode as well as a posting day.

Now that we've had our last contributor post their goods, it's time for me to thank everyone who participated, both the people who contributed with their awesome talents and people who were just watching, for yet another amazing round. It would be a very quiet Love Month without you all :)

Secondly, to end the month with a bang, tomorrow (October 1st) will be a free-for-all day when anyone can post their fanfic, art, essays, etc. If you were too late to sign up, missed your day, or just had a last minute inspiration, now's you chance to share your works with the community. The only limitation is that it must me Babylon 5/Crusade related (d'uh) and must be new (not posted anywhere else before). If you want to take part to the Free-for-all day but don't have posting rights (i.e. you weren't signed up for the Love Month this year), just leave a comment and I'll give you them.

And finally, here is a masterlist of all the great things that have been posted this year. Please remember to thank the contributors by leaving them feedback.

Everything from fanfic to icons to socks )

It is now September 1st, so I would like to welcome everyone - members both old and new, contributors, watchers and lurkers - to the fourth (where does the time go!) annual Babylon 5 Love Month.

We still have ten days unclaimed, so if you're feeling creative, it's not too late to sign up or pick up an additional day.

I hope everyone has fun here the next month watching, reading, and admiring the creations our contributors will be sharing with us on their selected days. And don't forget to leave feedback to the writers and artists if you liked their work.
