dS other fandoms jealous

More Joy Day!

More Joy Day is a concept thought up by[personal profile] sdwolfpup n January 2008.
It is a semiannual day devoted to spreading MORE JOY THROUGH FANDOM. 

SDWolfpup's suggestions for celebrating that day include:

"Write a fic, make an icon, make a vid, or make a fanart for someone. Buy someone paid time or userpics. Leave someone a nice comment. Say something nice about something fannish someone else loves. Say something nice about something fannish you love and encourage squee (and squee on someone else’s post if they make one!). Offer to beta for someone. Offer to donate five dollars to the charity of someone's choice. Send flowers to an online friend in a different city. Buy someone you know online a present. Or a virtual present. Plant a tree or a flower in someone's honor and take a picture of it and post it to your LJ. When somebody cuts you off at work, wish them well and hope they get where they’re going safely. Make somebody a friendship bracelet. Or a construction paper heart. Call someone you love and tell them so. Or anything else you can think of!"

What I haz done : offered my future beta services for "Chicago-ese" (as I am a native of the city to which Fraser first came on the trail of the killers of his father) to a German dS fic writer who I met this month through kouredios's friending meme

What I haz done : donated additional monies to the Muskrat Jamboree ConCom.

friending meme

Well, it took me a little while, but I did finally post to[personal profile] kouredios 's friending meme   I'm # 2652 and the first one on page 16. Here's a copy of my post, where we are asked to post name, age(ish), primary fandoms, other stuff we're into, non-fannish interests, what our journal reads like, and f-list turnoffs :
1. name : On DW and LJ, I'm ride_4ever. On AO3, I'm Ride_Forever.
2. age(ish) : 50(ish)
3. primary fandoms : due South ; C6D - Canadian Six Degrees
4. other stuff you're into, but maybe don't blog about (unless you find more people who'd want to hear about it) : tattoos (I have three and will be getting a fourth next month) ; librarianship
5. non-fannish interests : boardgaming IRL ; theological history (the subject in which I got my degree) ; bento boxes and maneki nekos
6. my journal reads like...recs for works in my fandoms, pimping comms to which I belong , self-pimping my dS and C6D fics, squee about fancons, things of a Canadian nature that I think will amuse my f-list
7. f-list turnoffs : I'm just about unsquickable and triggerless, so there's nothing I'm "afraid" of seeing. What I don't like to see is anyone saying that someone else's kink or OTP is "wrong" just because it's not that person's kink or OTP.
