Signing up for Team Whimsy:

Part of the joy of Due South is that it often features elements that are, shall we say, somewhat outside the average person's experience. (And not just because tall, handsome Mounties very rarely show up at our doors, chastise us patiently, and then tip their hats and proceed to help us save ourselves. More's the pity.) What better way to celebrate that touch of the extra-natural than with whimsical stories?

Ghosts, magic, super-senses, talking animals, closets that open up to be cabins... and those are just the things that canon gives us. Then we have wacky AUs! Genderfuck! Bodyswap! Bodyswapped genderfuck! Fairy tales, myths, leaps of logic, strange coincidences, the flash of not-quite-normal that you catch out of the corner of your eye. Whimsy gives you the power to shape the world as you will--keep the elements you like and shift the rest, bring our boys together or keep them apart, give them wings or give them--literally!--feet of clay.

That's Team Whimsy.

Feel like waving your wand over a story like that? Wonderful! Read on...


[livejournal.com profile] zabira is your team captain and there are 13 places open. Positions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and you can sign up yourself and only one other person.

I just saw that you are responsible for the banner. (I should have guessed!) It's wonderful. Dief! His sign!

I wonder what Fraser *did* have in mind....

Thank you! I have to admit that dragon!Vecchio totally owns my heart.

I think Fraser was thinking of work-related issues, oh yes. *nodnodnod*

Oh, I see, *that* kind of role play.

That could be very funny for a fic--Fraser says, "Let's pretend that I'm the suspect and you're you," and Ray (either Ray) is thinking, "Wow, Fraser's kinkier than I thought, but okay...." And hilarity ensues.

I am sad that the banner doesn't have any of their funny bare feet and mitten hands, but I like Ray's boots. He must have stolen them from Leela on Futerama.

Yah, I did a count of my own, I figured. :;sighs:: I was on time for the other post. Ah well, no account for HTML errors, they happen. Maybe next year.

Wow, that was fast! Both teams full to the tippy-top in a matter of minutes. It's a good thing I stayed up, or I would have Woken Up Sad.

From: [identity profile] brynnmck.livejournal.com
WAY quicker. Last year took about an hour, IIRC. YAY for our awesome shiny fandom! :)

From: [identity profile] aingeal8c.livejournal.com
I thought so. I remember Team Angst took awhile to fill up. But yeah this was just YAY \0/.
