You are viewing sentinellibrary

As some of you may remember from last year, the 852 Prospect archivist was looking for someone else to manage 852 and came to an agreement with Archive of Our Own (aka AO3)to do the job.  AO3 is a massive, multi-fandom archive which can be found here.
http://archiveofourown.org/

In order for the stories from 852 to not become lost in the larger archive, it was agreed to transfer the stories into a "collection", where you could find the stories in one location but they would also be part of the larger archive and could be found under the individual author's AO3 page as well.  The process started this past Thursday, and the stories have all been migrated.

What does this mean for you?  The 852 URL is still there and will still be searchable as it was before.  The difference will be that once you click on an individual story link, you will be re-directed to the story at AO3 where it is now housed.  For those of us who have struggled to find a story at AO3 this is good news; we still have our familiar search engine.  There are a few caveats, however.

Once the stories were migrated to AO3, all authors were sent welcome letters announcing that their fic was available for claiming; that is they affirmed that they are the authors and they then can do anything they want with them.  They could edit them (something not really possible at 852), leave them as is, or they can delete them.  If they do that, you will get a "couldn't find the story" message if you try to get to them through the old 852 URL.  Fortunately, we haven't had that many stories removed by authors yet.

On the flip side, the 852 Collection will now accept new stories.  The old archive closed for new submissions about a year ago, so this is good news that we'll have more stories about the boys to read.  We have had some new stories added already.  The one problem will be that those stories will not show up if you use the old 852 search engine because they were not part of the original archive.

Another temporary situation is that all the migrated stories start off being "locked"; that is, you can only read them if you are a member of AO3.  Why? Because the old 852 archive was shielded from being searched via Google or other search engines, while AO3 is not.  Many authors who write slash, even though they may write under pseuds, might not be comfortable in having their work accessed in such a public way.  So, during these three months, they will have time to claim their stories and decide whether to keep them on the site and whether to keep them locked or open them up to general readership.  After three months, any unclaimed stories in the collection will be unlocked.

So how do you read "locked" stories?  By becoming a member of AO3.  Besides being able to read these stories, being a member has some other nice advantages.  You are able to comment using your name/pseud (although you can comment anonymously) and the system keeps track of your reading history (in case you forget a story and want to find it again) and you can bookmark stories for later reading or re-reading.  Every 852 author will automatically receive an invitation to join if they haven't already.  If you are strictly a reader (as I am), you can apply to join here:
http://archiveofourown.org/invite_requests

The reason for the restriction is simply server capacity.  They want to control the influx of users to make sure nothing crashes, since AO3 is still in beta testing.  You can also request that they tell you how long it will be until you get the invite.  If you have any questions or problems with this, please contact me off list and I'll do my best to help you.

With the changing of the guard, someone else had to be the archivist for the new collection, and I volunteered to do it.  I'm very excited to be part of keeping this important chunk of our fandom alive and evergreen.  I'm working on becoming a subject matter expert, so bear with me.  Feel free to post any questions here or privately to me.

Cheers,

merlin aka Magician at AO3 and 852 Prospect Archivist at AO3

Looking for Sentinel last 3 seasons

Does anyone know where or how I can watch the last 3 seasons of The Sentinel? I bought the first season, but the rest is hard to access. Thank you for any help.

Thanksgiving ANON is open

Yes, Thanksgiving ANON. I realize that Thanksgiving is a U.S. thing, but the we do have time on our hands at the moment to write. So I bring to ALL the fans an ANON weekend. Give me your prompts, and let the writing begin. This is open to gen, pre-slash, slash, crack, and all the other forms I didn't write here.

This is to be fun. So come by drop a few prompts, and then see what others want and write up a storm.

Come by join up, and see where it leads us. Tell your friends, and spread the word on what we are up to. Ambitious but is it rubbish? I can't say.

I hope it's okay to post this:

I'm asking for volunteers to help me with my stories. Since they're no longer at 852 Prospect, I'd like to get several of them over to ASR3, but my arthritis prohibits the kind of time I used to spend at the computer - hence the request for volunteers. If you're interested, please go here where you'll find all the info! Thank you and feel free to pass this on!

This is the first official announcement for this year's 'auction', which will actually only be the Animal Adoptions from Moonridge.

The Welcome Page has been updated (per requests from fans) to now include the history of how the auction started, ALL the totals raised each year and, as a bonus, "The Many Faces of Garett Throughout the Years at Moonridge". There is also a new Welcome banner. Just below the bottom of the post, click on "Previous 1" to read the first new post which includes:

Sally's Songvid site is closing soon

Sally announced this over at the Sentinalia Yahoo group. She's going to be discontinuing her site at the end of April.
http://sseymour.net/index.html

If you want any of these spectacular vids, now is the time to save them for your viewing pleasure. If any of you are unaware of her vids, you are in for a treat. They are mostly gen. Although they were made quite a few years ago, her vids have been consistently nominated in the Light My Fire Awards and "Mr. Sandman" won in 2005, which was the first time vids were included in the awards.  Additionally, "Mr. Sandman" and "Jim Dandy to the Rescue" were recommended at Crackvan. 

Thanks Sally for all the enjoyable vids and for the heads-up. Brava.




 

WORLD AIDS DAY

Since December 1st is World AIDS Day, I am commemorating the day as I usually do, by re-posting my TS story,
World AIDS Day".

New stories have now been added

to the Moonridge Auction Fiction Archive, aka moonridge_fic, so check it out! And if you've forgotten what I'm talking about, this is an archive established to house all the stories written over the years specifically for the Moonridge Auction - thus giving fans one spot to go in order to find them.

Of course, if it's going to keep growing, authors need to send their stories so I can add them *G*. Doesn't matter how far back you go, if you've got a story or stories written for Moonridge, well, just check out the archive on how to get the stories to me and we'll have you up ASAP! And if you have art with your story, yep, that will be included as well!

More stories will be added throughout the weekend, so keep checking the site! And since the archive is for all fandoms as they're represented by the auction, please feel free to pass this notice on to other lists, journals, communities, etc!

Moonridge Reminder!

Don't forget we have a journal specifically designed for posting ALL Moonridge fics in one spot for folks to read when the 30 days has expired on your story! We've just come off another auction which means more wonderful fics.

Since LJ is having major problems with spammers (thanks jessriley for pointing out the recent spam) I've disabled the comments for the Welcome Page over at
[info]moonridge_fic - so if you'd like to post your own story, let me know and I'll grand you access, or you can just send me the story - with the following template included: 

Title
Author
Fandom
Category (meaning Slash or Gen)
Pairing
Moonridge Year (meaning for which Moonridge it was written)
Who won the story (if a single person was the winner)
Minimum Warnings: Death of a major character, Rape/Non-con, permanent disability
(warnings can be blocked out so the reader has to run their cursor over them so as not to spoil for others)

...and I'll post it for you. Just make sure you include any and all pertinent information for posting, including any artwork you'd like posted with the story. :) 

If you've sent me stories in the past and they're not up? Please send again. Between my email program and RL, I could have overlooked something - but I really want your story/ies up and so do the readers! :) 

Thank you!

Invitations for DW and Archive of Our Own

Skeeter Press - changing server

Passing along.

Sender: skeeterpress@yahoogroups.com
Subject: [skeeterpress] Skeeter63.org transitioning to a new server
Date: Tue, 16 Feb 2010 14:23:06 -0000
To: skeeterpress@yahoogroups.com

Hi all,

Don't know who is still on here or getting updates, but thought I'd post this here anyway.

The server that skeeter63.org is hosted on has been under siege by hackers for several months. Finally, yesterday, things came to a head and the site had to be shut down entirely. This is only a temporary shutdown. The domain and all its sites will be moving to a new server with a newer OS and security tools. Hopefully this will resolve some of the issues we've been having.

I will let you know when skeeter63.org is back up and running.

Feel free to pass the news to anyone you know who uses any of skeeter63's sites.

I appologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your patience.

I've just posted the first story over at the comm - by Patt, with some lovely artwork to go with it. There'll be a story a day until we run out... come on over and check us out!

The 2009-2010 Give and Take TS Challenge

crossposted to ts_news

Sharing treasures...

sistermu and slipperieslope won a wonderful anonymous slash story in Sentinel Fandom during the annual Moonridge fund raiser. We would like to share it with you now, an especially appropriate time, as tomorrow (Thursday) is a Sentinel Marathon Day, on the SyFy television channel, in the USA!

Story Announcement

My first Moonridge offering has now been posted to my LJ

Forever is Part 1 and The Bright Touch of the Moon is Part 2 (I’ve labelled part 2 as pre-slash) Obviously I don’t have to tell you that you need to read part 1 to understand part 2 ::grin:: Please also take note of the warnings as the themes covered in these stories are not for everyone.

And lastly, thanks to starwatcher307’s brilliant advice, all the stories on my LJ have now been linked to a new DW account. So much easier as DW gives you a far greater posting capacity and as yet I haven’t had to break any of my stories up into parts. As this DW is just a filing journal, please don’t friend it otherwise you’ll end up getting lumbered with all my housekeeping on your DW friends page.

One Moonridge down and only one to go! ::yay::

Sentinel Big Bang

Announcement from briarwood


~oOo~


Last week I mentioned in my own LJ that there didn't seem to be a "Big Bang" challenge in TS fandom. Just about every other fandom I'm involved in on LJ seems to have one. This is something I'd love to organise for TS, if there's enough interest, and it can be a lot of fun to take part in.

A Big Bang is about bringing authors, artists and vidders together for a fandom creative-fest. If you think you might be interested in taking part, or if you want to know more please take a look at this post in my journal and let me know. I'd also really appreciate it if you could help spread the word, as I'm no longer on any of the TS lists or forums off-LJ.

(I know there are other big events in the fandom. If there's enough interest I promise to come up with a timetable that won't conflict with Moonridge, at least.)

Proudly Presenting...

my brand-spanking new fic journal! Thought the whole two of you who follow my writing might want to know. *g*

[info]krossero_fic

For those of you who prefer to read on LJ. But I'll still be putting my stories on 852 Prospect and ASR3.

A Notice from Cascade Library

Cascade Library URL

Over the past several months, there have been issues with skeeter.org and virus attacks on viewers' computers when they browse the sites located there. The skeeter server owner has been working on thisquite vigorously and has asked that I pass on the following information.

Currently, skeeter sites can be accessed through different URLs. Some of those URLs seem to be the ones that are vulnerable to attack. For Cascade Library, she is suggesting that viewers only use the tslibrary.skeeter63.org URL to access the site as this seems to be the non-virus-attacked URL. (This is considered a "subdomain" link rather than a directory structure link.)

I will be placing a note to this affect on the CL newarrivals page plus removing the other URL listings from the site this evening. ButI wanted to post a note here to get the word out.

Feel free to pass this information on to any interested parties.

New Arianna Story: Never Saw Blue

Hey, a new gen story has just gone up on my page in Starfox's Mansion. In part, this story was inspired by a song by Hayley Westenra, Never Saw Blue. And, in part, it may resonate with a discussion on Prospect-L some months back, in which there was speculation about what makes Jim 'Jim' -- his intrinsic traits, his experiences, his senses? A combination of all three? Could he still be Jim if any of those givens were changed?

Genre: Gen

Synopsis: Approximately five months post TSbyBS, Jim and Blair are caught in a bomb blast meant to kill them. When Blair wakes in hospital days later, he learns Jim was so badly hurt that no one believes he'll ever wake up, if he survives at all. William has had Jim moved to an Institute that specializes in brain trauma. Unwilling to abandon hope, Blair finds out where Jim has been taken and goes after him. There's angst, h/c, a case story of sorts and, well, lots going on.

Warnings: In this story, Jim is suffering what appears to be, and may well end up being, permanent amnesia so a few tissues might be necessary. Blair is a cop in this story.

Length: 94,500+ words/120 pages

The story is complete as is, but it may lead into a series to be called Wolf and The Jag. If anyone feels inspired to write a story in this 'universe', I think that would be very neat.

My thanks go, as always, to StarWatcher, my beta and to Starfox, for hosting the story on her site. I'm also grateful to Alyjude for the lovely cover art.

If you read it, I hope you enjoy it ... and I'd love to hear what you think about it!

You can find the story at: http://www.wolfpanther.com/stories/blue.html

New Fic: "Give Until It Hurts" by Roslyn

Author's Notes: No Profit, copyright laws bent but not broken; Poem, "The Road Not Taken" by
Robert Frost (1915). This story also had the honor of an 'alpha' by Arianna
and a meticulous 'beta' by Starwatcher. Remaining errors are mine alone.

Content: Gen with warnings for language, violence and adult subject matter (organ
transplants). Takes place post TS by BS and Blair is a cop. Approx. 30 pages in three parts, posted to my LJ.

Summary: Jim's sensory differences are interfering with his work and prompts Blair to
reconsider his career choices during a tough case. Follows my story, "Negative
Energy" but can stand alone.

Feel free to offer concrit and changes will be made before this story goes to Starfox for archiving on my page at her wonderful 'Mansion'.

Part 1 is here: http://roslynsmuse.livejournal.com/49710.html#cutid1

New Author Interview

Passed on from Roslyn

~oOo~


For those of you who don't normally check in at the Cascade Library, interviews with TS authors, old and new, are being posted once again. Take a look here:

http://www.skeeter63.org/~tslibrary/featured-author.htm

for the current listing. Gil Hale is the latest interviewee among many familiar names. Enjoy them and let the librarians there know if there are other authors you'd like to hear about in future weeks.

Roslyn

New Story

This slash story, Love's Forbearance, can be found at http://arianna.hidden-muse.com/viewstory.php?sid=29&warning=FRM If that link doesn't work, go to www.arianna.hidden-muse.com and scroll down to Recent Entries on the left.

Pairing: J/B
Word Count: 54,907
Warnings: Have tissues handy.

Partner betrayal stories can squick a lot of people, but if you'll bear with the journey of this story, I promise you'll come to a happy ending. ::grins::

I wish to thank the three people who made donations to Moonridge to receive this story, Bee, Dorothy, and Gerri, for giving permission to post it before the requisite thirty days had expired. I also thank Janet for issuing the Moonridge Claim challenge to write a happy ending sequel to Polly B's heartbreaking story of partner betrayal, and I thank Polly B for allowing me to use her story as a lead-in to mine, which begins immediately where her story ends. As always, I thank StarWatcher for her impeccable beta, and Rhianne for hosting my slash stories.

If you check it out, I hope you enjoy it.

LMFA Nominations

--Please forward to all interested lists, blogs, LiveJournals, etc.---

The LMFAs are still looking for nominations for the 2009 awards.

The current nominations can be viewed here:

http://lmfa.diagonalfiction.com/2009CurrentNoms.php

Check out what's been nominated lately and which categories could use a little fannish love. Enjoy the wide range of wonderful stories, art, and vids that The Sentinel fandom produces and add your own favorites. Don't forget that just because something has been nominated once, that doesn't guarantee it will make the ballot. So add your nomination when you find a worthy entry already there. Don't see it up there yet? Nominate it! You'll be glad you did (and so will the writers and artists).

It's easy to nominate a story and you can nominate as many as you want in each category, so if you've just read something you really loved, be sure and nominate it!

To do so, go here:

http://lmfa.diagonalfiction.com/2009Nom/index.php

Nominations run through to July 15, 2009.

If you have any questions or comments for us you can contact us at LMFAwards@yahoogroups.com. We also have a LiveJournal community, lmfawards, for announcements and questions. Feel free to look for us there.

Another conversation with a 'classic' author is available here:

Who would you like to hear from in the coming months?
A message from Aly and feel free to spread the word where ever you can.

This way to the good stuff

~oOo~


This Saturday is the deadline for anyone who wants a special auction item,
Claim Item or to adopt an animal IF they're paying via check or money order!

For everyone paying via Paypal, you still have time to buy up some great
stuff - your deadline for claiming and paying is NEXT Friday, June 18th.

Sadly, for the first time ever, we have more UNPAID items than paid in the
Biddable category - and Moonridge is only a week and a half away. We
currently have almost $6,000 UNPAID (over THIRTY ITEMS) - BUT - if everyone
pays, we'll actually MEET our second highest amount raised - $18,000.

I know thefreeauction.com site fell down on the job and some "Win"
notifications weren't sent out while others ended up in spam folders, so if
you were bidding and you don't know if you won or not, send me an "E".

Final note: We usually average about $5,000 for the animals - this year our
total is less than half that ($2300). :(

But still - given the economy - I'm my usual proud self at The Sentinel
Fandom and all the other fandoms that took part this year!

And as usual, major kudos and gratitude go to everyone who contributed both
items and then money to win them because there would be NO auction without
both! And, of course, to the Moonies (Rae, Geri, Ande and more recently
added, Alayne) for passing my posts to lists I'm not a member of - and of
course, to VIRGINIA SKY for the WONDERFUL job she did - and always does -
with our official website!

*thunderous applause can be heard throughout cyberspace*

No, you don't need a library card to read about it! Check it out here:

http://tslibrary.skeeter63.org/featured-author/featured-author-dawnc2.htm

Dawn began the 'Sentinel Angst' listserve at Yahoogroups, where so many of us were offered a place to begin writing our own stories amidst a friendly crowd of fellow enthusiasts. You can check that out, here:

A Community Reminder

Remember folks, if you have any new stories or announcements about the Sentinel Fandom, please feel free to do so here - if you're not a member, I'd be happy to do it for you.

This is a gen and slash friendly community and everyone is welcome.

Also, if you have a LJ fiction site you'd like listed, just let me know and I'll get it sorted.

Thanks

The Featured Author of the week is now up.

See the latest conversations with TS authors whose works are archived at CL here:

http://tslibrary.skeeter63.org/featured-author.htm

This week, Judy Seils (Judy L) tells us about her long association with the fandom. Enjoy!

Interviews at Cascade Library.

I must say, I'm really enjoying the Featured Author Interviews being posted weekly at the Cascade Library Some of my personal favourites, such as Fluterbev, LKY, StarWatcher, Shedoc, T.Verano, just to name a few, have already been interviewed (and waiting patiently for Arianna and Panik to make an appearance) and it's been very interesting indeed to get inside their heads. It's also prompted me to re-read a few of Saoirse's stories which have been an absolute delight.

So if you have time, pop on over to the Library and take a squiz. The Librarians are also eager to hear who you'd like to hear from next.
Below is a note passed on by Roslyn, but I have to add my enthusiasm for these interviews. How wonderful to get an insight into what makes our favourite authors tick. This week is by starwatcher307 who many of us know and love. Go see what she has to say.

~oOo~



Head on over there to catch up on the new and older conversations with TS authors. This week's featured interview is with StarWatcher.

http://tslibrary.skeeter63.org/featured-author.htm

Want to read about one of your favorite gen or bifictional TS authors? Notify the Librarians over there and they'll look into it.

Pimping the Light My Fire Awards

Don't forget that the Light My Fire Awards are up and running and dying to receive your nominations. While the slash side of the fandom is not looking too bad, I have the say that the general side is very woeful indeed. Three lonely, lonely authors desperately seeking the company of others and ELEVEN categories still completely empty. Zip, nada, nothing - not one single nomination.

I think it's only fair that we correct this so,if you have a general story that you love, or even one that you think wasn't bad, please nominate. It'll give others the chance to read it and decide it they to want to nominate it and see it get through to the next round.

And once you've done that, you can head over the slash page. :0)

(and then once you've done that, you can head on over to Moonridge )
