skew_whiff: (keep calm and carry on)
You know, I think I'm losing my touch as a fanboy.

Maybe it's that I'm getting old (er, relatively) or that fandom's changing in terms of where it's based and how it worked, and it's definitely got something to do with my long-standing utter uselessness when it comes to large fandoms - but okay, I haven't a clue where to start with Avengers fandom. It's making me all confused and uncharacteristically shy (online, I mean; I know all about RL shyness, but it doesn't usually affect me here).

Is it all on Tumblr and AO3 these days, or are there comms? I know there's got to be the inevitable kink meme - always a good place to anonymously try one's hand at fic - but despite having tried various iterations of 'avengers kink' I don't appear to have found it yet (and Livejournal's search function is about as user-friendly as an iron maiden), and no doubt other things, but it all seems a bit scattered. So, er, people who are better at this shit at me, where do I start?

That said, one thing I have come across is [ profile] avengers_rbb, which I reckon I'd like to take part in - if I can just think of what to draw, that is. For any of you who've taken part in the writing side of a Reverse Big Bang, what kind of thing do you look for in an artwork that you claim? Any suggestions? (Actually, I just had a doozy of an idea involving Cap and the Howling Commandos in North Africa. TANKS! SHORTS! SOME KIND OF ROBOT SPHINX! Aww yeah.)

At least this one Pacific AU I've been working on for months on end is starting to finally come together; I'm about 6k through the third draft (it'll probably be about 30-40k in the end), and I reckon once that's done it'll only need someone else to look at it and a final vigorous polishing before it's actually good to go. Given that I've been beset by writer's block for a large portion of this year, it's nice to feel I've made a breakthrough.

And FFV's started posting, so I'm looking forward to a couple of weeks of good reading.

How about you guys? Working on anything good?
