Pro Novel :

Connie Faddis
(quote [info]catalenamara
I was one of two people to mention Connie Faddis. She was not a K/S writer, but rather one of the very early gen/adult writers.
Both of us who commented on her work entered fandom in the early 70s. I commented at the panel that Connie was the first writer whose work showed me how very good fanfic could be. She excelled at characterization, plot, pacing, and "voice" - professional quality all the way, along all the true deep emotion the best fanfic has. It's a shame her work isn't online.)

Jenna (Hilary) Sinclair

UK Jess


Carolyn  Spencer

Dread Nought : http://dread.slashcity.net/




Charisma 12

Universal Constants  (Reboot e-zine)



And, mentioned in and read aloud from in the Gol Panel:

Duet for One Voice by Carolyn Spencer

Ah - thank you so much!!

I knew she was mentioned at some point but couldn't quite place it anymore. If you don mind, I copy your comment in my post as I think it would helpful and interesting it is anyway :)

I will link to this list over at KSC and lj too, am just posting the Round Robin story as well and wait until the post is done too.

I hope Carolyn was happy about her name mentioned! She's together with Jenna one of my favourite authors and I'm so excited to meet her at Shore Leave. I love her work very much.

It was SO AMAZING to meet you!!! I could have asked a million questions more and I thank you for having been there, truly.

And I guess....See you soon!

Thanks for posting this, I wrote everything down in a notebook at the panel, but since the third box of zines I was shipping back to my house wasn't completely full, I put that notebook in the box so all the zines would be held in place and not be damaged during the trip to my house.

But since my packages are still on their way, I don't have access to the notebook right now, so I was going crazy trying to remember what everyone recced.

But now I know, so YAY~~~
Jun. 30th, 2011 03:42 am (UTC)
Good to know you made it home safely!!!

I hope your packages arrive soon and I also hope to see you at the next KiScon of course :)

It was so awesome...so very very awesome and you did perfectly fine btw!!

Thank you so much for putting this up. This panel was so much fun and you did an excellent job with it. I can't wait to delve into the stories I haven't read yet! :-)

You're welcome! It was fun putting the list together as it brought so many memories back to life :)

Have fun discovering the stories!

KiScon must have really been a blast, I've only seen people enthusing how wonderful it was. Thank you so much for sharing the rec list! I can't wait to dive in.
Jul. 2nd, 2011 12:36 am (UTC)
It was...it was indeed. Sorry you couldn't be there! But Kismet will be great too, I have no doubts :)

Enjoy the stories!
Jul. 1st, 2011 03:13 am (UTC)
Wow, I'm thrilled to be included in such an illustrious group of authors/stories. Thank you so much for posting this list. I'll make sure it's included in the post-con message when we get around to writing it! :)
Jul. 2nd, 2011 12:38 am (UTC)
Why, of course you're included and you're welcome. It was great putting the list together for posting as it brought me back to the panel and that means back to KiScon - I miss it soo much!! *sob*

Have I mentioned how great it was? I'm not sure I have...*g*

Hope you're feeling fine (or better) and sending many hugs!

Oh, thank you for posting this! I didn't make the panel, and I did want to know the "answers."

Jul. 2nd, 2011 12:39 am (UTC)
You're very welcome!
Enjoy reading through the stories!!
Jul. 2nd, 2011 06:37 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for posting this! I've added all the ones I don't know to my to-read list :-)

Am also quite stunned to see my name among those amazing writers. Whoever brought that fic up has some startling endurance!
Jul. 2nd, 2011 09:54 pm (UTC)
It was a pleasure preparing and posting the list and it brought back so much con atmosphere in my mind :)

And sure you were mentioned! And many agreed to it!

Big hug!
Jul. 5th, 2011 02:14 pm (UTC)
I clicked this link via kirkspock for the sole purpose of adding to my 'must-read' list and then sat here, mouth agape, when I saw Leave No Soul Behind got a mention.

Just ... wow.

This is a franchise with such an amazing fan base and an incredible surplus of writing talent that I really don't know what to say.

Well ... apart from the fact that I'm really flattered and kind of glowy and happy right now. Thanks for sharing this, I'd never have known otherwise :)
Jul. 5th, 2011 04:52 pm (UTC)
You're very welcome!

And I'm glad you followed to link to find out one of your stories was mentioned. And quite a couple of others in the panel supported the mentioning btw.

This fandom is awesome, isn't it? Enjoy the glow and happiness!!

Thanks for commenting,

Jul. 6th, 2011 06:49 am (UTC)
Rad, thanks! I'll be bookmarking this & working my way through. Haha i've read SO MUCH ks fanfiction that it's a rarity to find a rec list I haven't already read all of. Um, only read about 2/3 of this one, lol. Thank you thank you~ oh, & any chance you'll be posting pictures? I'm desperate to oogle ks cosplayers!
Jul. 6th, 2011 04:26 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you could find new stuff on this list! I myself haven't read all of them and I'm looking forward to going through them too at some point soon.

So, enjoy reading!

As for the pictures: I didn't really dress up and I'm afraid I can't post pictures of others as I do not know whether they'd want it, you know. Sorry! Should I see on any lj con pictures, I'll send you the link, okay?

Thanks so much for the comment :)

Jul. 7th, 2011 01:41 am (UTC)
Sorry, I missed this panel. Thank you so much for listing these, I have a lot to re-read (through the eyes of time passed) and discover for the first time!

Jul. 7th, 2011 02:14 am (UTC)
Re: Yay!
You're welcome!
Thank god there's the internet which connects us, huh? :)
And enjoy reading through the recs!
