Manifesto work--

colin strength: brn_gamble
I spent several hours bringing together my research and info on Gamble/Street for my manifesto. I'm well on the way with it; in fact, it needs some tweaking and additional recs and not much more except the images that Charlie charliemc and Brian brn_gamble have promised to contribute.

So, Jimbo just_jimbo and Joey fatjoey, get crackin' on more fanfic!

Now I wish I hadn't eaten like a horse today and I'd gotten more exercise done. Gotta go do some floor stuff, at least. It was 92 degrees here today, so it's still hot, but that's no excuse. I've let myself go something terrible, and I only have myself to blame.

Still, I'm not going to let anything get me down today. Not even the fact I didn't get much of anything significant done at work again (and our Annual Board meeting is less than 48 hrs. from now).

I've really enjoyed this manifesto, never felt overwhelmed by it, never been bothered by the hours of research. It was such a worthwhile and fun project for me, and it makes me feel more in touch with fandom than I have in quite a while. I'm so glad we discovered Gamble/Street after our bitter experience with Aragorn/Legolas. As I've probablly said before, give me obscure and intimate over puffed up and arrogant any day. (And by obscure and intimate I mean shipped by a couple dozen people in the world. Maybe my essay will convert a few more.)

Hey Bri brn_gamble, thanks for the new icons!

Can't wait to read the manifesto. When is it due? I'm sure I'll write some more stuff in the next week or so, if you want to include it.

I'm really impressed with the way you've managed to put your manifesto together, in spite of such a heavy (and stressful) workload. Go, MM! LOL.

Jimbo and I love it that the fandom is so obscure. We feel like we kind of own it, I guess. LOL. We'll share with you and FJ and Charlie and a few others, though. LMAO.

I like the A/L pairing, but don't think I could stand the fandom (crazy fen) crap, frankly. I've seen enough of that with the Alexander/Hephaistion shippers. Man. Those are some crazed bitches. (And you know I rarely ever curse in LJ!)

I'll get cracking on the images starting tomorrow. I've been screwing off a lot lately. The heat has me down, I have to admit, which is weirder than shit for me! (It's bothering the kids and me, actually...)

As for the fandom, it's all about good fanfics, right? And there seem to be several. (With you can Jim writing Gamble/Street, I think we're good to go -- even if only a few other people ever write it. LOL. Seriously.)

And you've very welcome for the icons! I've been on an icon kick again recently...

It will be wonderful to read the manifesto. Keep up the exercising. You inspire me.
