AO3 has just reached ONE MILLION FANWORKS.

Come celebrate with us! :D

christycorr: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (123)
January was so academically overwhelming. I handed in several essays, which was...uh, exciting, but most importantly, I submitted a PhD funding proposal, and good God, drafting (and redrafting, and redrafting, and did I mention redrafting) that fucking thing was a ridiculously horrid process. By the time I submitted it, I was almost hating my topic without even having started my PhD. Stiiill, it's all dooone. :D :D :D And I have a couple of lighter weeks now before essays and exams start up again, thank God.

I'm going to the Dublin premiere of Much Ado About Nothing, which Joss will attend! Ridiculously excited for this, I can't even. It almost makes up for the fact that John and Hank Green came to the UK this week and I didn't even realise it until John updated vlogbrothers with a London video. *sob* GOD FUCKING DAMN IT, WHY.

Ahem. Anyway. I've translated so much stuff for the OTW these past few weeks—the Portuguese version of transformativeworks.org is pretty much ready to go, and I'm ridiculously proud of it \o/ My precious.

OTW work in general has been beyond brilliant. Everyone in DevMem, Translation and I&O seems committed to changing things and innovating and just. ♥! *fangirls [personal profile] agnieszkas and [personal profile] juniperphoenix* So, so happy with my fannish endeavours, and life in general is way less stressful now that there are no deadlines looming, and eeee. *collapses in a puddle of slightly-less-busy bliss*
So apparently I haven't actually posted here since February. Way to go, self. A lot's happened since then! For one, I moved to England, which is all kinds of awesome ♥ I finished my behemoth of a thesis in June (it was so amazing, you guys), and started my Masters here in September.

Like a lot of people in fandom, it's far easier to find me on tumblr/twitter these days (not all that frequently anymore, though, to be honest; postgrad education is taking its toll, unsurprisingly!), but I still get LJ/DW notifications by the truckload and do my best to keep up :) I've also recently succumbed to the lure of Teen Wolf—which has been quite the ride, I have to say. I'm reccing Suits fic this month at [livejournal.com profile] crack_van too :D I've even been—gasp—writing fic! Overall, it's been an amazing year in all sorts of ways!

I've also recently joined the OTW as a staffer. The OTW, as I'm sure most of you know, is the non-profit behind the Archive of Our Own, Fanlore, Open Doors and several other amazing projects. We're actually having a membership drive at the moment! If you're interested in becoming a member or in helping to support our projects, and have a few bucks to spare, please consider donating! ♥
