Based on the results of the poll we posted, we will not be running a round of LBB at this time. We may look at running another round later this year. Also, due to the feedback we received, in future rounds we will be lowering the minimum for vidding - thanks to everyone who took the time to let us know.

There is good news, though. I will be opening a community with almost the same model: [community profile] ladiesmicrobang and we will open up a round soon. The main difference will be the minimum length of submissions and a few modifications to the matching process, which will make the administrative side less intensive for us. Stay tuned for more soon!

First things first: apologies for the long absence. It wasn't intentional, but then again, these things rarely are. Apologies also for the spam that occurred, it has been deleted and we'll be keeping a closer eye on the situation and may have to disable anonymous posting if it crops up again.

At this point, I am considering putting together a round of LBB for 2015. It would have a similar timeline to our previous rounds, probably with a creation period going April - June or thereabouts.

To gauge interest, I have created a poll:

Character(s)/Pairing(s): Kyouko, Tsunako, Bianchi, Yamamoto, Gokudera, Reborn, Hana, Mochida

Acknowledgements: Many, many gleeful thanks to the ever-marvelous [personal profile] esmenet for putting together a fanmix, Let Them Eat Cake for this fic. Go and check it out, because it's awesome!

The one problem, if it was a problem, was that Tsunako-chan went around so much with Yamamoto-kun and Gokudera-kun these days that it was next to impossible to get a word with her privately, which was something Kyouko dearly wanted to do.

"The Blow of a Knife" - fiction by damkianna.

Fandom(s): Children of Dune (2003 miniseries)
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Ensemble: Chani, Irulan, Alia, Jessica, Duncan 2.0, plus assorted minor canon characters and an OC or two. Canonical past relationships, hints of Alia/Duncan 2.0, and in my head the whole thing has come to serve as pre-Chani/Irulan but that might just be me.
Wordcount | Rating: 21,000 | PGish? Brief and inexplicit violence; not even so much as a cheek kiss.
Content Notes/Warnings: The premise, as should be clear from the summary, revolves around a major character death. Deals pretty inexplicitly with pregnancy and childbirth.
Summary: Chani feels it, when Muad'dib dies. Midseries AU: the attempt to assassinate Paul with the stoneburner is successful.
Acknowledgements: Thanks immensely to [personal profile] idriya, who tells me things I don't want to hear even though I'm whiny and horrible to her after, and whom I hear spent a lot of time wrapped in a sheet to complete my beautiful complement art. Sadly, RL has delayed the actual complement posting - but the art will be embedded as soon as it is complete! ETA: Not embedded yet, but the art is up in a single post at my DW.
