Hi! Um. It's been awhile. I am sorry. I'm afraid I let entropy win for awhile there.

But I do want this community to live!

Does anyone have any Star Trek Book related fanworks from the past few months they want to mention here?

Is anyone interested in re-starting the read-through? (I have the rest of the Rihannsu books ready. I just ... never posted them.)

Is anyone interested in becoming a co-mod? Your primary duty would be to start discussion posts when the community is being too quiet.

I'll start things off: As a companion to [personal profile] ljc's T'Kay Stories, based on Vulcan mythology from "Spock's World" and "Uhura's Song", I recently posted some artifacts relating to Vulcan Mythology that I found at Starfleet Academy's Annapolis library, along with discussion of their provenance and historical significance.

Hi! I never got a chance to participate before (I wasn't at dw often enough to keep up), but I'd love to get a chance now.

I think re-starting the read-through would be a good idea. I'd need a chance to catch up to everyone else though.

I'm still here, and I'd definitely be up for a read-through. One possible idea I have: at some point in the future members could lead read-throughs/discussions of their favorite non-Rihannsu Trek books?

...And now I'm thinking of finishing that sequel to my Treknovelfest fic.

*fights the Lone Power for you* Wait, wrong fandom! (...Or not! There are Sulamids in both!)

I would be up for more readthrough. I have now purchased the Rihannsu books on my Kindle (this is, I think, the third time I've bought most of them), so I am set. I just need to read them again. Oh, the hardship.

I would also like this community to live. Because this community is made of awesome. *makes note to self: post more, lurk less*

Oh man, I totally forgot about Hwiii until right now. And he's one of my favorite of DD's nonhumans and everything.

I remembered the Dairine-Doctor scene, though. I definitely am interested in reading Jack Harkness/K't'lk. (My cross-species kink, let me show you it.) I think we can safely conclude that pretty much all of Diane Duane's works are in the same universe, what with Stealing the Elf King's Roses also being in YW. (Not sure how the Tale of the Five fits, but am thinking about it.)

I think one of the things I love so much about Wounded Sky is that it reads, to me, as a rougher and more raw version of the way entropy is handled in the YW-verse. It's less codified and refined by in-universe magic rules, but I think I like it better.'Rrahh is the cats' Lone Power, right? How do you see that working? *is curious* Man, now I have to reread those. Hmm.

I'm here too. I just seem to be out of sync with the group--whatever book y'all are on at a given moment, I'm on another one. :-)

*waves cheerily*

I'm still here but am still very far behind on all of my book-reading.

*eyes stacks of books beside the bed dubiously*

I think a sign-up list is a good idea - how about something like what [community profile] poetry's started doing, have a post where people sign up to lead discussion about $my_favorite_trek_novel for whichever two-week period they get tagged for it by the mod? And once you get that list of books people want to lead, you can just drop all the relevant ebooks somewhere for people to dl and read at leisure.

(I call dibs on Shadows on the Sun if we do this, btw!)
