The deadline’s come and gone, and while there are a few pieces I’m still expecting in the next few days, I wanted to let everyone know where we stand, pagecount-wise, and what we still need. In order to be printable, the zines need to have a pagecount that’s a multiple of four, so here’s what we’ve got and what we need to reach that goal:

Chosen Ones (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is the shortest on content, unfortunately. I’m expecting a few more pages of essay, but right now we only have six pages, with only one piece of fanart. If we don’t get at least ten more pages, I’m going to have to postpone this zine until DC Zinefest in July.

The Avatar Cycle (Avatar: The Last Airbender) is looking a lot better, fortunately! We’re currently at seventeen pages. There’s plenty of art, and a few more things expected, but I could use a few short one-page text pieces to fill gaps as needed.

Concordance (Young Wizards) is currently at eleven pages. We need five more pages of content to have a complete zine. I’m reasonably confident that we can reach that goal.

Infinite Unknowns (Star Trek) is at 22 pages, which means I need to either add two pages or cut two (which I obviously don’t want to do). I do have some more content expected, so I’m not super worried. That said, I would still welcome anything covering TNG or Voyager, as everything I’ve got is for TOS, AOS, or DS9. (If the spirit moves you to make Enterprise fanwork, go for it? I guess?)

I am, at this point, opening up every zine except Infinite Unknowns to previously published content. If you have meta, fic or fanart that you think would be a good fit, feel free to send it along.

The zines have to go to the printer by April 16, but any content I receive before then can still make it in. If you think you can get something done by then, please let me know!

So, today was pretty good. I went to Marshall's and they had a style of shoe that I bought three years ago, LOVED, wore to death, bought again when I managed to find them online, wore to death AGAIN, and despaired of ever finding a third time. I guess they re-issued them? WHO CARES WHY, they were $25 and I bought two pair.

And then I was walking back to my car and a bunch of people in Captain America t-shirts went past in the other direction, towards the movie theater. Some were carrying plastic shields. I stopped dead and said "Wait, is there an advance screening of Cap 2 tonight?"

And they said "Yeah! Want to come with us? We've got an extra ticket."

SO THAT WAS AWESOME. I am having a lot of feelings about Steve Rogers right now, y'all. A LOT. IT WAS REALLY MAGICAL, for a value of magical that involves huge explosions and terrible things happening to Bucky Barnes.

More tomorrow, when I am more awake. SUCH A GOOD DAY.
