A sad midsummer moment
dS other fandoms jealous
I avoid posting sad things, but my brain is gonna be stuck on this all day if I don't post it and let it go. There was no C6D Midsummer Santa this year, and the C6D challenge I co-modded last midsummer got very little response. A few minutes ago I went to read some of the C6D Midsummer Santa from previous years and a lot of the links went to 404 Error. Woe. /o\

If any of my flisties want to rec me still-active links for your favorite C6D Midsummer Santa fanworks from any year, or if you wrote for it and want to self-rec, I would happily read them throughout the rest of the summer.

The AO3 collections are still live (haven't investigated links to individual fics, but unless they've been removed from AO3 entirely I imagine they're OK). Parent collection here: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/c6d_midsummer_santa

Contains only the last few years, of course...

I still daydream of reviving Midsummer, but frankly, I think it would involve solving the Tumblr/LJ divide (or becoming a Tumblr native *and* accepted into the community), and I don't really know how to go about doing that. Which is sad, but...is what it is, I suppose.

"Across the great divide...."

D :

I hate the Tumblr/LJ divide!! I've started up some comms and tried to revive some other comms - at best, I get anonymous comments without any of the Tumblr people even trying to make LJ accounts. It's really frustrating when I KNOW that they're posting fic on Tumblr somewhere but they for some reason won't post it to an actual site (whether it be AO3, FFN or LJ) where you can actually access it easily... Kink memes also seem to be foreign to them.

Worst of all, I've come across entire threads on certain messageboards where the whole thread is full of "I miss LJ, these new sites suck, but I can't go back to LJ because no one else is there anymore". I don't know how to show people that there are still some of us here ;_;

Yeah, I find the people who moan about LJ but don't then get active on it to be frustrating. I got a tumblr account a few months ago only specifically because there is so much dSC6D activity over there...but the way my brain works -- oh brain! -- I'm like a bird taking flight when I'm on LJ and like a fish out of water on tumblr.
