Haven't been on LJ since 2012. What are the good comms for fic writing and spoiler-free Doctor Who now?
Just got a Tumblr. Does anyone on the flist understand Tumblr? There is so much I don't get that isn't covered in the help and I can't find any good newbie guides that answer the obvious questions instead of regurgitating the site help pages.
Like how do you reblog a reblog so you are actually reblogging the person's response and not just the original post? Is there a way to browse a tag that has a hyphen in it? Why is it that when I upload something high-res, you can click on the thumbnail and it pops up a version scaled to your screen (clearly down and not up), but if you right-click on that and select "view image" you get the 400px thumbnail? How do I make it simple to get the full image without uploading it somewhere else and just linking? Is there a free layout that actually shows all of the things, like all the tags and an obvious "next page" button and the date of the post and the like and reblog buttons and a direct link to the post? I can fix an ugly layout that works, but I can't do anything with a pretty layout that cuts half the information and features.
I don't expect someone to answer all that. I just can't even find where to ask questions aside from abusing their support email and if you learned how to use Tumblr, how did you do that?
Other sites make sense. :(
Anyone know a general anime- or animation-themed 20-in-20 that's still active? Or an unthemed one that regularly gets anime entries. It's kind of hard to just search for comms sometimes.
1) It's going to be hilarious when he doesn't actually set off the bomb, and nearly all the fic out there is instantly Jossed. I may applaud.
2) Have strong desire to write genderswap fic in which John is still named John but Sherlock has a feminine equivalent of his name. It will be plotty and not just a weirdly structured essay on feminism. Sherlock will actually be a sociopath.
I don't know how to write genderswap. I almost never even read genderswap. Is there a manual somewhere? Have any advice? What would I know if I were familiar with the genre? And what can I possibly call Sherlock?
